Bus Charter through Death Valley

United States is a vast country with unlimited sights and attractions, limited only by our imagination 🙂 Of course, being such a large country, having a reliable mode of travel is essential for covering the vast distance between point-to-point. A good starting point would usually be at Las Vegas, a major city of entertainment, known for its casinos, retail shopping, fine dining as well as nightlife.  😎 With all its buzz of energy and fantastic lightings at night, one would probably experience streams of people milling about on the main streets enjoying the wonderful displays of light effects, music (yes, there […]

Sungei Buloh, Singapore’s Wetland Reserve

For nature-lovers, Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve in Singapore offers the beauty and wonders of the wetlands with an extensive mangrove forest,  awarded a certificate by the Wetlands International, marking the reserve’s entry into the East Asian Australasian Shorebird Site Network. Just a warning foreword before coming, while dressing light for the weather is appropriate, do come prepared with mosquito repellents.

And the wildlife here really is in […]

Tokyo 4 Days Post-Work Blitz (Part 2)

Continuing on where I left off in my last post of Tokyo 4 Days Post-Work holiday after a blog post filled with photos just from my Day 1, Day 2 proved to be equally exciting … that is to get close enough to Fuji-san and catch some picturesque photos!

Tokyo 4 Days Post-Work Blitz (Part 1)

One of the benefits of a working trip is sometimes when you get a nice destination with your flight and accommodation (at least most part of it …) all paid for, all you have to do is extend the trip there for a few more days at your own cost to take in the local sights. And sometime during the working trip … if one is lucky … you get to try nice food for ‘free’  😎 At the closing of my last second day for my working trip in Tokyo, our group was fortunate enough to be treated to […]

8 to 10 Days Travelling Itinerary to Osaka / Kyoto / Nara

Osaka, Kyoto, Kobe, Nara cities are all located within close proximity to each other (within an hour train ride) and well-connected by the Japan railway network, so a single point accommodation in Osaka is actually sufficient as a base to start from for visiting attractions located in the other 3 nearby cities. Looking back on my travels where I had 5 and 1/2 days spent in this 4 cities, my family and I took up 2 different accommodations during this period, not so much that it was essential, rather it was to let us experience the difference between a AirBnB […]
