18 Apr, 2019 in Sokcho

The north-eastern coast of South Korea is a quiet laid back area within a few hours drive of the capital, offering a  wonderful escape from Seoul. It’s quite popular on weekends, but if as a tourist you are able to visit during the week you’ll find most of the area almost deserted and prices very […]

18 Apr, 2019 in Singapore

Last time I visited Singapore was in 2014, so a visit was long overdue. I got an invite to come over and spend some time with Nanyang Technological University (NTU) at the very far west side of Singapore, away from the Singaporean hustle bustle center, though nothing in Singapore is ever very far. I spend […]

14 Apr, 2019 in Chaozhou, Visions

This year saw a few exciting changes to Hong Kong. The world’s longest bridge opened connecting Hong Kong and Macau, and Hong Kong hooked up to the China high-speed rail network. It is now possible to get to lots of destinations straight from Kowloon station at the heart of Hong Kong. So, I needed to […]

25 Mar, 2019 in Chang Mai, Visions

Chang Mai was my first stop in Asia. Before Chang Mai, I had no idea what Asia was like. I was originally set to start from Bangkok, but then everyone warned me that I should aim for a softer landing and immediately take a domestic flight to Chang Mai. And they were right, later when […]

24 Mar, 2019 in Koh Samui, Visions

This Chinese new year, I returned to Thailand after 14 years of being away. I can’t imagine why it took me so long. Especially having lived in Asia for a few years since. But I’m very glad that I did. My visit to Koh Samui, which I remembered as an over-touristy commercialized island, compared to […]

20 Mar, 2019 in Chuncheon

I visited Chuncheon in South Korea as a daytrip from Seoul. The area is quite spectacular, with nature scenic views of mountains, rivers, and lakes, a lovely Korean countryside atmosphere. It’s mostly catered for Korean domestic tourists, with attractions like water sports , cable cars, slides, observation decks, sky walks, and an endless array of […]

10 Mar, 2019 in Bangkok, Visions

Thailand was my first stop in Asia, where I spent over 3 months, on and off. It’s been 14 years since I left, and did not have a chance to visit back until this year. I was curious to see what I’ll remember and how I’ll feel about things. To my surprise, there’s very little I […]

8 Mar, 2019 in Fukuoka

While visiting the Fukuoka area in Japan I took a one day getaway trip towards the east to see the Kitakyushu area, and make a stop on the way to do one of my favorite things when I travel – go up cable cars. The higher the better, the more spectacular the views – the happier […]

7 Mar, 2019 in Seoul

In one of my recent visits to Seoul I was looking for something fun and cultural to do and saw that there’s a funky Argentinian show in town –  Fuerza Bruta. I bought tickets without doing too much digging and so wasn’t sure what to expect, and so I was completely taken by surprise and […]

26 Feb, 2019 in Guangdong

Just when I think I covered all the main attractions in my region of Hong Kong someone brings up something new I have not heard of before resulting in me rushing over to have a look and look for new adventures. The Yingxi Fenglin Corridor Scenic Area is only a couple of hours drive from Guangzhou, […]
