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!
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.

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.
Well, I went to Tallinn just because it was a detour from the nearby Helsinki, and it was nice to add one more country in my “been-to” country list.
Estonia – the “former Soviet” country was actually something more than dull and grey. The city has a legacy from the Russian culture. Anyway, does it worth going? I would say based on the following two reasons…
Summer is coming and it is good news for sun-lovers. I, personally, prefer cold than hot but I do sometimes enjoy lying under the summery sun, listening to the sound of the waves and going for some exciting sports like surfing!
