My trip to Japan was absolutely amazing. Seeing the hectic life of salarymen in Tokyo, experiencing the laid-back life in small towns such as Kawaguchiko and Miyajima, and admiring the preserved temples and traditions in Kyoto; this trip has definitely opened up my perspective of how the Japanese people live their lives.
It is true what they say that it’s hard to cure yourself from a travelbug once you’ve been bitten by it. There’s more to Taiwan than the modern city of Taipei and its streetfood. The whole island is geothermally active as evidenced by the numerous hotsprings in the different parts of the country.
Day 7 of my Indochina trip was spent on traveling from Siem Reap to Bangkok. I used the service of Giant Ibis again because I found them very efficient in handling the cross-country border aspect of the ride. The whole ride took us around 8 hours. Also we did not have to change rides in…
The grand circuit tour consists of lesser known temples in Siem Reap. While these temples are not as magnificent and overwhelming as the “Big Three”, they certainly have features that are unique to them. Most of them offer something that the other temples don’t. The best thing is that they do not attract huge crowds like the Big Three temples do.
My trip to Japan is right around the corner. It will be my first time in the country so I have been researching thoroughly on the sites and cities to visit. I will be staying for two weeks coming in to Tokyo and making my way down to Miyajima and stopping in 6 other cities and destinations.
I started the tour with so much excitement. I went home drained with energy but gained a lot of insights and knowledge about the history of the Angkor. It truly befits its description, as a place of gods, full of wonder.
When I was researching on the places to see during my Indochina trip, Phnom Penh is not exactly included in my itinerary. I’ve heard some bad reviews about it from other travellers. But I was glad I decided to stay one night in Phnom Penh and do some sightseeing in the city before I leave for Siem Reap.
Day 3 of my solo Indochina trip was spent on travelling from Ho Chi Minh City to the capital of Cambodia which is Phnom Penh. I used the service of Giant Ibis Bus which made the border crossing so much easier. You can book your tickets online. Click here. We left HCMC at around 9AM…
The scenery is so beautiful but there is something unauthentic about it. It has adapted a touristy function. Although there are still some houses that are built along the river, I believe they exist for the tourists to see.
If there is anything I learned about Vietnam on my first day, it is that the country is a foodie’s paradise. The dishes are an explosion of flavor for your sense of taste.
HCMC is home to 8 million motorbikes and there’s no better way to see the city than from the back of a motorbike!
