Majestic Majorca – My 5 Favourite Beaches

Mallorca has it all – although it may be a small island (3,640 km² to be exact), it offers a spot of something for everyone. From the Tramuntana mountains for walkers, cyclers and landscape lovers to beautiful Palma city for the night life seekers, foodies and cultural capturers.  On top of that, we can’t forget my…

The Scarlet Hotel, Singapore

The Scarlet Hotel, is tucked away in China Town in Singapore, quite inconspicuous but very easy to find too. Just a two minute walk away from the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple, it is in a fabulous location but it isn’t an obvious hotel building but more camouflaged in with the unique China Town style road….

Langkawi Cable Car

Wow what a day! Langkawi Sky Cab or Langkawi Cable Car is one of the main points to see in Langkawi, so we couldn’t really come all this way and not visit it! I was slightly apprehensive as had heard it was quite steep… although I have been skiing frequently since I was very young,…

Kuala Lumpur – The Batu Caves

The Batu Caves are slightly outside of Kuala Lumpur (about a 20 minute drive) but it is well worth the taxi ride. It’s something like nothing else – when else have you seen the second largest Hindu statue (second to one in Nepal) in bright gold stood next to a cave, surrounded by monkeys!? If…

Langkawi – the Island of Dreams!

It’s an island so full of vegetation and tropical plants, including the rubber tree which was bought to Langkawi from Brazil and now the island is full of them. We found that the people were so friendly and our taxi driver was…

Before visiting Langkawi, I knew I wanted to do the Sky Cab and I’d read that Tanjung Rhu was a beautiful beach. But when our taxi driver insisted that we must do the Mangroves –  I had no idea whether he was trying to sell it to us or whether it was genuinely unmissable. I later learnt…

Where to Hang in Penang

Penang was my first experience of Malaysia and hence provided my first impression of it. It is a very interesting place with an array of different environments. From the built up city views to the mountainous luscious landscapes – Penang is pretty diverse.  I didn’t have too much time in Penang but I feel like I…

Singapore: By Night

Singapore really lights up at night, there are so many beautiful areas that you can go to eat, drink and be merry… Boat Quay  Boat Quay was a really civilised place to go at night, and oozed with elegance.  One of my favourite things is to eat on the waters edge and Boat Quay provides…

Singapore: By Day

Whilst we were in Singapore, we tried to see as many of THE places to see whilst we were there. I have to say, we managed to get to quite a lot of them in on our stay.  From The Merlion, to Chinatown to Sentosa Island, we’ve picked out our top of the hotspots that…
