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!
We visited Madrid during Easter. Beyond the yummylicious food, The Golden Triangle of Art, we stroll through the historic center, soaking in the Spanish royalty, culture, and history.
Then I saw something extraordinary…
Last time when I was in town (again), I finally visited Versailles, and I found it was an art pilgrimage long overdue. This is all about why, when, how, and what not to miss visiting the palace and gardens of Versailles, France.
We landed in Saint Petersburg in April and it was still freezing cold with flakes. We explore the refined Russian historical architectures in the outskirt area: Peterhof Palace (a.k.a the Summer Palace) and Catherine Palace.
Kyoto is peacefully remained as the center of culture, history, religion and tourism in Japan. But the city is much bigger than you think! This time, I explore some farther temples in the city with a bike!
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!
Some visitors has wondered, Ayutthaya or Sukhothai, which one should I visit? Actually, both of them are quite different, with a lot of similar qualities.
A day trip to Ayutthaya from Bangkok: The Ayutthaya historical park is only an hour away from Thailand’s capital, Bangkok, which makes it perfect for a day trip. But it’s nothing wrong to stay for a few days to visit all the spectacular ruins of palace and monasteries, Buddha statues, and temples…
The Winter Palace, now officially named the Stat Hermitage Museum, in “Venice of the North” Saint Petersburg, is one of the most visited attractions and one of the largest art museums in Europe. Countless great names have their masterpieces proudly displayed in the extravagant rooms. To me, the rooms are the highlights of my visit to the State Hermitage. I suggest doing a little bit of research beforehand and learn about the location of the rooms…
“Aqui, onde a terra se acaba e o mar começa…” Sometimes an ending of a wonderful thing could be heart wrenching, but at the same time, it could be a new beginning of something wonderful.
Althought Versailles has been the center of attention in terms of the palaces in France – Fontainebleau is certainly not to miss!
