Tukad Cepung Waterfall in Bali – The Most Dramatic of All

Tukad Cepung Waterfall in Bali is the most dramatic of all waterfalls I’ve been to. It’s quite a ride from Canggu to the waterfall on a narrow, zigzaggy road. But, when you arrive, it’s all worth whatever trouble you have on the way. Promise! How much? You need to pay

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

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

Merdeka Square is Kuala Lumpur’s Most Historical Area to Visit

Merdeka Square is definitely Kuala Lumpur’s most historical area I visited while in Malaysia’s capital city. It is, for sure, a tourist attraction you must not miss when exploring the city.

Inside Masjid Negara – Malaysia’s National Mosque

Masjid Negara in Kuala Lumpur is Malaysia’s National Mosque completed in 1965. In many city tours, this mosque is one of the tourist attractions where tour buses stop. At first glance, with the absence of the tall minaret, the structure of Masjid Negara doesn’t look like a mosque. Well, it’s

Tirta Empul Temple – Bali’s Sacred Spring Pool

Tirta Empul Temple in Bali (just a few minutes outside Ubud) is the island’s most sacred temple for the Hindus. Everyone is welcome to visit the temple as long as you are dressed properly. That means, no exposed flesh (arms and legs). A sarong at the entrance can be borrowed
