Padar Island – An Incredible Island in Indonesia

Padar Island is one of the more than 17,000 islands in Indonesia. I’d say that it’s one of those views that you have to see to believe it! Describing it as incredible is somewhat short of an adjective to express the feeling the first time I saw it fully. Man,

Sailing Komodo Islands for 3 Days and 2 Nights

Sailing Komodo Islands from Labuan Bajo for 3 days and 2 nights was something you’ve got to do when visiting Indonesia. You won’t just have so much fun, but you’ve got to see a few of Indonesia’s 17,000 islands. You’ll be able to frolic at the famed pink beach, hike

Jatiluwih Rice Terraces is Really Beautiful

Jatiluwih Rice Terraces is really beautiful. I mean, it won’t be called Jatiluwih if it’s not really stunning, right? I was told that “jati” means real, and “luwih” translates as beautiful or good. You see, Jatiluwih Rice Terraces is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You might wonder why but when

Lake Inle Tour + Shwe InDein Pagodas for a Day

Take the Lake Inle Tour if you had a day to explore it. It’s one of the unique travel experiences you are gonna have in Southeast Asia. Lake Inle is Myanmar’s “WaterWorld.” Here, you’ll see how people survive to live in/surrounded by water. It is a glimpse of the resiliency

Maha Wizaya Pagoda at Night is Magically Golden

Maha Wizaya Pagoda at night is magically golden. It looks like a palace you heard about or read about in books about the Far East. I never planned to come here – it was just an accidental discovery. On my second night in Yangon, I walked from my hotel to

A Walking Tour in Putrajaya – Without a Map

This short walking tour in Putrajaya is not really the kind of tour you’d like to join. I did it without a tour guide nor a map on hand. I did it because I like walking and I want to see what’s beyond the Putra Masjid, a landmark you shouldn’t

Jakarta National Monument and the City Views from the Tower

Visiting Jakarta National Monument is where you should start to get to know Indonesia’s capital city. You’re not only visiting the monument but also seeing Jakarta’s skyline from the tower deck. Yes, the tower is The National Monument! It’s a symbol of the country’s struggle for independence. For the locals,

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 the city plains. Believe me; you won’t be able to count them all. There are just too many of them

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 SuperTree Grove at Gardens by the Bay in Singapore

The SuperTree Grove at Gardens by the Bay is one of a kind tourist attraction in Singapore. Such a concept is, perhaps, a pioneer in the world on how we see trees. It’s not just a man-made tree but there’s more to that. There are 18 super trees in the
