Views from Mandalay Hill

The views from Mandalay Hill won’t really sweep you off your feet if you’re expecting a jungle of skyscrapers. Instead, you will be able to see towering golden stupas littering across the city plains. Believe me, you won’t be able to count them all. There are just too many of

Yangon Skyline from Sakura Tower at Sunset

To see Yangon skyline from Sakura Tower at sunset, you have to be at Yangon Yangon Bistro. It is on the building’s top floor – and with an open concept bar, the views are magnificent. A friend and I arrived here 30 minutes before sunset. We were the first customers

Sekumpul Waterfall – Bali’s Best Waterfall?

Is Sekumpul Waterfall (Air Tejun Sekumpul) the best of all waterfalls in Bali? I think and believe so. It’s not just the best but, perhaps, the most dramatic of all, too! And for sure, it is the tallest cascade in the whole island! The mid and northern part of Bali

The Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum in Hanoi

The Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum at Ba Dinh Square in Hanoi is no different from Chairman Mao’s at the Tiananmen Square in Beijing. Both bodies of these political leaders are enshrined in a building for everyone to see. Ok, not everyone – only for those who are willing to queue

The Imperial Citadel of Than Long in Hanoi

The Imperial Citadel of Than Long in Hanoi is a UNESCO World Heritage site because of its cultural, political, and architectural significance. Unlike other UNESCO World Heritage Sites I’ve been to, the citadel was kind of a disappointment to me. I thought I was gonna see much more than just

Views Around Kandy Lake

The views around Kandy Lake are worth seeing. I recommend you walk around the lake and just enjoy it leisurely. Stop in sone nearby cafe or under a shed if you needed to. Strolling around was actually kind of therapeutic to me after a whirlwind of sightseeing days before I
