25 Aug, 2019 in Bangkok

In my last visit to Bangkok I was located in the old part of Bangkok not too far away from China Town where the Bangkok Design Week titled “Fusing Forward” was taking place across several locations in the area.   Check out the event map and you’ll see it was basically all over Bangkok:   […]

27 Jul, 2019 in Danang

While walking around in Danang I came across a lovely unexpected local attraction. An inner neighborhood, a bit hidden away from the main streets, that was covered with beautiful Graffiti art painting. It covers a few blocks, in which most of the walls are painted. It makes for quite the Instagram attraction, if you ask […]

26 Jul, 2019 in Suzhou

Suzhou has a lot of wonderful Chinese gardens. In my last visit to Suzhou in wonderful weather I visited quite a few of those. The first two were the Humble Administrator and Lion Grove Gardens, dating back to the 12th and the 13th century, and are now UNESCO heritage sites. Aside from just being very […]

11 Jul, 2019 in Fukuoka

Uminonakamichi Seaside Park on the northern part of Fukuoka is a gorgeous park with large fields of flowers, playgrounds, and children activities. It occupies a very large area, so you can easily walk around and explore for half to full day, and just take it all in. Fukuoka itself it’s very pretty, but that park […]

10 Jul, 2019 in Chang Mai

Revisiting Chang Mai 14 years being away, there were a few spots that I was looking forward to seeing again. One of those was the Doi Suthep National Park and Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep, set high on the mountains overlooking the city of Chang Mai. I rented a scooter, and headed up the winding roads […]

23 Jun, 2019 in Suzhou

I recently went back to revisit Suzhou after 5-6 years of being away. First time I visited it was cold and gloomy, and on top of that there was heavy pollution, making it very difficult for me to enjoy the beauty of Suzhou. Coming back, most time is was gorgeous sunny weather with fairly blue […]

23 Jun, 2019 in Kunming

Kunming is the capital of Yunnan province and probably your first stop in the area. A few highlight well known attractions in the area, like the nearby Shilin Stone Forest, and Green Lake Park at the center of town. Down towards the south east is the Guandu Ancient Town, an older section of the city […]

22 Jun, 2019 in Bangkok

Bangkok has a number of funky museums but I think Siriraj Medical Museum tops them all. On the surface, it seems quite straightforward. It’s a medical museum in a hospital, showcasing some of the regional medical history. Yet there is something about this museum that made this specific museum a hit, their displayed collection of […]

12 Jun, 2019 in Danang

After 14 years of being away from Vietnam I made my way back to visit Hoi An. What I have not done when I previously visited 14 years ago, was to really explore Danang, and so before heading down to Hoi An I spent a couple of days exploring more of the city. There are […]

8 Jun, 2019 in Koh Samui

During Chinese/Lunar New Year I escaped Hong Kong to Thailand, and found my way to the southern island of Ko Samui. I did not intend to but the beach hotel I got was right next to China Town and so I was very lucky to catch the very lively local celebrations near the local template. […]
