posted a Quick Tip about Singapore. September 10, 2012
posted in Go Singapore
Singapore
Downgrading it two notches as the place got so crowded these days that it's no longer a nice city to hang around, not to mention the prices of most things are at least 20% higher than in Hong Kong. In fact, some essentials like shampoos and toothpastes are almost double the price of those in Hong Kong. This is NOT "progress"!!!

Aurora Borealis
One of the most magical wonders of life and planet Earth! Brace the cold and you'd be rewarded with such a wonderful view that you'd never ever get over the experience. See for yourself... if not in person, then at least this awesome video!

Bora Bora
"After Tahiti and Moorea, the Leeward Islands are the most visited part of French Polynesia, especially legendary Bora Bora. The scenery is superb, with winding coastlines and verdant volcanic peaks above the waterline and brilliant coral gardens and exotic marinelife in the lagoons." text from Moon Tahiti
reviewed Return to Blue Lagoon. December 29, 2011
Return to Blue Lagoon (Full Screen Edition) (1991)
Over the past eight decades the paradise isles of the legendary South Seas have provided a backdrop for many Hollywood productions. French Polynesia has been the most popular location by far, followed by Fiji and Samoa. Both Hollywood films set in Solomon Islands, Guadalcanal Diary(1943) starring Anthony Quinn and The Thin Red Line (1999), were about the Pacific War. Easter Island features in Kevin …

reviewed The Atchafalaya Basin. August 16, 2011
The Atchafalaya Basin
Of all of the many unique places to visit in the state of Louisiana, only one of them is the perfect mixture of wonder and fear.  I'm talking about the Atchafalaya Swamp, or Atchafalaya Basin as many people refer to it as.  The Atchafalaya is the largest swamp in the United States, and also a great source of income, recreation, and mystery for the state of Louisiana.      …
Lost in Shangri-La: A True Story of Survival,
   Imagine flying over a jungle, having your plane crash and kill all but three of the passengers and crew, struggling to find your way to a clearing to be spotted and rescued, only to come face-to-face with a jungle tribe of suspected cannibals.  That's the real-life situation that three military personnel found themselves in during World War II, and the story is chronicled in …
posted a Quick Tip about Easter Island. July 05, 2011
Easter Island
Allow yourself enough time if you go to Easter Island. Travel agents often recommend three nights but five nights is the absolute minimum you'll require to experience this fabulous island. Once you're there, I recommend taking taxis to the ends of the roads and walking back along the coast. You'll discover lots of wonderful sites most visitors don't get to see. Better hurry up because …
Lost in Shangri-La: A True Story of Survival,
This tale of a World War II plane crash and rescue is making everybody's summer 2011 must-read lists, and with good reason--it’s a well-researched and -written account of a minor event with so many dramatic angles it keeps the reader glued to the page to the end.  I ended up reading it straight through in one day.      In May 1945 (after Germany's surrender but …
posted a Quick Tip about Iguazu Falls. May 09, 2011
Iguazu Falls
Majestic and totally awesome. The most powerful force of nature can be observed and challenged here. A boat cruise under the splash is one that you'll never ever forget! The heli ride over it is a must too!        
posted a Quick Tip about Capetown. May 09, 2011
Capetown
One of the most exciting, interesting and exotic cities in Africa as well as the world. I enjoyed my stay here so much so if I've got the cash, I'd buy a home here overlooking the sea! Exotic plants, animals and food are the attractions in this vibrant and colorful city. Make sure you go to the Botanical garden to see the many exotic plants where you won't find in any other parts of the …

Barcelona
Gaudi, Gaudi and more Gaudi! Been here 3x and would have loved to settle down here if I'm going to reside in Europe one day! What a beautiful and special city this is!     
posted a Quick Tip about Bora Bora. May 09, 2011
Bora Bora
Romantic... most romantic place to have honeymoon! I took the Air Tahiti Nui via Tokyo since it was a free flight. I do believe there are direct flights to Tahiti (capital of French Polynesia) and then air transfer from thereon. It's not easy to get to Bora Bora but it's definitely worth it. A haven for snorkeling and scuba diving!               …
posted a Quick Tip about Canyonlands National Park. May 01, 2011
Canyonlands
It is vast, expanse, a little remote and less well know. It can be all yours! You and the nature, at one, on your own in solitude. What a great feeling!      One of America's most spectacular national park! I had great fun driving around it!
posted a Quick Tip about Interlaken, Switzerland. May 01, 2011
Interlaken, Switzerland
Serenity... never feel more at peace with myself anywhere than Switzerland and Interlaken and the surrounding areas like Wengen, Murren are some of the best places to rest oneself and simply be. Lovely lakes and mountains. Jungfrau and the views from Schilthorn are simply unforgettable. Wish I have a chance to go back again right NOW! 
posted a Quick Tip about Lake Powell. May 01, 2011
Lake Powell
The Glen Canyon Recreational Areas and Lake Powell are simply awesome from the air. It was on a day excursion from Las Vegas to Monument Valley that I was greeted with the most incredible sights I've ever had the fortune to see on a flight (the other being an hour flight around Mt. Everest). Not many have seen the sights from the top but if you do get a chance, I highly recommend it to you. It's …
posted a Quick Tip about Canadian Rockies. May 01, 2011
Canadian Rockies
Lake Morraine, Lake Louise, Lake Peyto, Columbia Icefield & Banff and all the nature's wonders are here. They can all be easily accessible from Calgary. A mere 2 hour drive. I've been here more than 3x and I don't think I'll ever get tired of it!
posted a Quick Tip about Bali. April 30, 2011
Bali
Some of the best diving can be had in this island of Indonesia west of Australia. Many 5* hotels have been built on this island where its inhabitants are Hindus and not Muslims. Bali is exotic, fun and captivating. One of the best places to go on a honeymoon!

posted in Go China
Forbidden City
The Forbidden City was the seat of Imperial power in China for more than 5 centuries. It was where the Emperors ruled and where every Chinese would want to pay pilgrimage to at least once in his/her lifetime, together with an excursion to the Great Wall of China. These are the 2 most magnificent man-made architecture in China. Both are huge and both plays a significant role in the …
