I took a guided tour with my mum and her group of friends to explore the Vietnamese mountain town of Da Lat for 2 days. We had a lovely time in cooling weather, and this was our itinerary.
I made my way to Kundasang to admire Mount Kinabalu from afar, and to find that one place in Malaysia where the Friesian cows roam in the meadows surrounded by rolling hills.
The rural Japanese mountain villages of Kibune and Kurama are steeped with history and myths; and coupled with its cool mountain air, river-dining experiences, onsen and beautiful temples — they make a relaxing trip out of the city of Kyoto.
Over my five days in the city of Guilin in southern China’s Guangxi province, I got to witness the sublime beauty of its stunning scenery, karst landscape, winding rivers and cultural treasures. My ancestors were from this province, so it was a surreal experience going back to the ‘motherland’.
