Bangkok, A Day by the River

It’s been some time that I visit the riverside of Bangkok. In fact, there are some new landmarks and markets popping up along the river, in between some of the Bangkok historic classics. We re-visited the Grand Palace, Wat Pho, and Wat Arun, had a great time shopping and fine-dining experience in a day!

A 2-day Winter Itinerary in Helsinki

My impression of Helsinki: compact, cultural, clean and cool. I stayed in the city for a few days in winter, yet I found the city was welcoming and charming. Helsinki’s city center is compact and easy to navigate, while tourists could basically go anywhere on foot. Here is a 2-day easy going itinerary of the major attractions in Finland’s Daughter of the Baltic.

Harbour Views…. & Bondi Beach

The Sydney Harbor is one of the largest natural harbors in the world, and the city thrives on it. There are lots of amazing spots a traveler would explore! As I was flipping through my photos during my BridgeClimb experience, I thought I would give myself a reminder of some of the favorite places around the harbor.

Run! Run! Venice!

I titled my visits to the Italian cities “Run! Run!” because I was really in a hurry – I had only a week in Italy and I wanted to cover as much of the country as possible. My 7-hour mission to see all the essentials of Venice and it was amazing!

Different Faces of Halong Bay

Halong Bay is a Unesco World Heritage near Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam, and travelers from all over the world came here for the breathtaking and unique landscape. I ended up joining a 2-day cruise at Halong Bay to have a full experience of the beauty and serenity of the site has to offer.

Europe on the left, Asia on the right

Istanbul is a charming existence in Eurasia straddling the Bosphorus Strait between Europe and Asia. Taking a boat trip towards the Black Sea is an experience of “Europe on the left and Asia on the right”:). Must see places in the city includes museums, palaces, mosque and historic tram line!

Round the World in 1 Hot Day!

The old city center of Malacca is listed as a Unesco Heritage Site with architecture from different cultures, walking through the Melaka Heritage Trail is like “Round the world in one hot day”!

The best way to explore these heritages would be on foot, or, by trishaws…

Our Awakening to Beauty

The Lake District, actually (to me), doesn’t have many “one-of-a-kind”, unique, or iconic attractions compared to any other English towns in England; however it has a subtle beauty and a poetic quality that inspired countless artists, poets, writers, and basically everyone who visited the region or called it home. The artists have made a concerted effort and made this place romantic.
