Asia

Asia is Earth's largest and most populous continent, located primarily in the Eastern and Northern Hemispheres. Asia is huge, there's no doubt about it. Even when you're a knowledgeable worldly traveller, you can still struggle to know which country is where, and where you want to travel to on your vacation! When travelling, you can go for the people and the massive diversity of culture and religion, the adventure - the huge mountains, the lush jungles, and the absurdly exotic wildlife. Or there's Asian food - the curries, the noodles and the local delicacies. No matter what takes you to Asia, you are sure to have an incredible adventure!

  • Why I’ll Allways Love Bali

    I’VE TRAVELED TO OVER 30 COUNTRIES, AND TO THIS DAY, BALI IS STILL ONE OF MY FAVORITE PLACES IN THE WORLD. When I first arrived in Bali for the second time last year, I felt broken.

  • How I Ate My Way Through Disneyland

    Want to know why I ate my way through Disneyland? When I visited Disneyland, Tokyo in 2017, it was the busiest week of the year. I’m talking Cherry Blossom festival/ school vacation/ start of spring holidays kind of busy. It was hectic. But it was also the best time of the year to be travelling Japan, and so I wasn’t…

  • Gardens by the Bay, Singapore

    The Marina Bay Area was the activity I was most looking forward to on my South East Asian holiday in late 2017. I’d seen photos of the magical wonderland of the Gardens back in December 2016 and was completely smitten. I made myself a promise that I would see these gardens and explore them in 2017, and that is exactly…

  • A City of Light and Darkness- Phnom Penh

    A city of light and darkness. Because that’s what it was, Phnom Penh – a city of light and a city of darkness. A city of laughter on boardwalks, of smiling faces and helping hands, of bustling night markets and delicious food. A city of all this, yes, but also a city with a horrific history, one marred by the…

  • 4 Incredible Things to do on Nusa Penida, Bali

    I’ve travelled Bali several times and each time I fall in love with something new. Nusa Penida might just be my favourite travel destination in Bali. In case you haven’t heard of it, Nusa Penida is an island located just off the southern coast of Bali. Although it’s only a short 30-minute boat ride from Sanur and a 10-minute ride from neighbouring Nusa Lembongan, Nusa…

    Japan, the country of quirky items, food that is to die for, fascinating culture, and the friendliest people in the world. In early 2017  I visited Japan for the first time and was absolutely blown away by the country. Not only do I rate it as one of my favourite holidays ever, but I am also itching to go back! Being…

  • Being blessed by a Buddhist Monk in Cambodia was one of the unique travel experiences that I will never forget. Here is the rundown on buddhist monks and getting blessed by one.

    An Angkor Wat Sunrise

    It’s about as cliché as visiting the Eiffel Tower, but bloody hell, there was absolutely no way I was going to miss out on watching the sunrise at Angkor Wat! Angkor Wat may be on every travellers hit list, but this is for a damn good reason. This Cambodian temple complex dates back to the 12th century and is the largest religious monument in…
