The year 2020 is the year when we visit Malaysia! Here’s how I spent my day trip to the small Selangor town of Sekinchan — known for its fields of paddy and delicious seafood.
Spending one day at Lake Toya — cruising around its caldera lake and heading to the top of nearby Mount Usu. The final league of my three part road trip around Hokkaido in summer.
The second part of my three part road trip series around Japan’s Hokkaido in summer, that brought us to the onsen town of Noboribetsu. It’s also known as the hell town for all its steaming hot springs and demon statues!
Here’s my suggested itinerary for a one day visit to Busan. It’s a collection of my favorite places, and a slow-paced introduction to the city for my partner, who was in Busan for the first time.
It was a full day exploring the northeastern coast of New Taipei City — it brought me to Wanli to see its gorgeous geological formations, and to Jinshan for a relaxing soak in its famous hot springs.
While in New Taipei City, I made a day trip to visit the city of Sanxia and its famous old street, and also the nearby ceramics town of Yingge.
I had a lovely day exploring the port city of Tamsui in New Taipei City. And then come night, I visited the city’s Christmasland for a Christmassy lights extravaganza.
Half a day in Ankara, the capital city of Turkey — where we experienced a tour of the city’s old and new. This is the first part of a four-part series of my trip to Turkey with Parlo Tours.
My day in the Fukuoka Prefecture — traveling from the south to the capital of Fukuoka in the north. The final league of my grand Kyushu tour with Parlo Tours.
If you love Japanese onsen, you’ll love Beppu. Whether it is for bathing, or for viewing — this city has got to be one of the toastiest and steamiest places I have ever visited! First city on my grand Kyushu tour with Parlo Tours.
We had an entire morning to explore the Sabahan town of Tawau — and we spent it hiking and eating!
My half day visit to Nara — where I got to hang out with hundreds of deer, visit some of Japan’s most ancient temples, and dine on delicious grilled eel. Oh, did I mention the adorable deer?
A half day visit to see the lovely town of Himeji — the famous Himeji Castle, and the autumn night lights of the Koko-en Garden.
On my previous visit to Chiang Mai, I did the usual tourist trail of admiring temples, visiting elephants and climbing a hill. This time though, I spent a day doing something a little different while in the city — painting, cooking, and making tea pillows.
Surrounded by forested hills all around, Mae Hong Son really is the quiet, misty town I have always imagined it to be. Here’s how I spent my day in this rustic town on the northern hills of Thailand.
