Singapore Grand Prix

I am probably the biggest sports fan you know. I love all sports all over the world. However, Motorsports is the area where I struggle to have major interest. I have been to the Indy 500 and also a NASCAR race in Fort Worth, Texas. Yet I didn’t really get into it. However, after attending […]

2 Days in Langkawi, Malaysia

I was so excited to visit Langkawi, Malaysia again! I was there several years ago for a short stay and always wanted to return. Langkawi is a gorgeous island of Malaysia in the Strait of Malacca in the Andaman Sea. It is near Thailand but very different from nearby Phuket. Here’s what I did on […]

Singapore Has It All

Singapore is one of the world’s best cities but we often dismiss it. Even in the region Singapore doesn’t have the allure of Hong Kong, the excitement of Bangkok or the beaches of Bali. It doesn’t have the mystery of Myanmar, the temples of Cambodia, the affordability of Vietnam or the food of Malaysia. What […]

My First Trip to Chiang Mai, Thailand

A lot of people will be surprised that this was my first trip to Chiang Mai, Thailand. Aside from my recent tour of luxury villas in Thailand I have been to the country at least ten times. But this was my first trip to Chiang Mai. I absolutely love Bangkok and if I left, I […]

A Tour of Luxury Villas in Thailand

When most travelers think of Thailand they think cheap, budget, a place they can stay a long time for a little bit of money. Yes this is true, you can stay very cheaply in Thailand and yes it is the mecca for backpackers and bloggers. That’s why so many live here or stay here. They […]

It’s Worth the Effort to Travel to Luang Prabang

In all my trips to Southeast Asia, Luang Prabang had always eluded me. It was always a little too far from wherever I was. It was always a little annoying or expensive to get to. I couldn’t be bothered making the effort. So this trip I finally did it and I was pleased that it’s […]

Angkor Wat 11 Years Later

In 2004, I took my second big trip to Southeast Asia; the first had been in 1999. I traveled from Bangkok to Siem Reap by cheap bus. At that time, once you crossed into Cambodia the roads ceased to be paved. The bus broke down several times. We even had to push it out of […]

Things to do in Mandalay, Myanmar

Travel to Mandalay conjures up romantic images and thoughts of an Asia of a bygone era: an Asia that is unspoiled and untouched. The reality is that Mandalay is the second biggest city in Myanmar after Yangon and a sprawling, dusty city with not a lot of charm on the surface. However, if you look […]
