Bangkok, Thailand: 5 days 4 nights Itinerary

       5 days 4 nights in Bangkok, what can I do? Although I feel that Bangkok deserves a week, this 5 days 4 nights Bangkok itinerary will be an eye-opener for any first-timer in Bangkok! As soon as arriving at the airport, remember to pick up a local SIM card to stay connected. You can also pre-book the BTS Skytrain Rabbit Card before your trip and pick up at the airport so that you won’t waste time queuing up tor tickets. In case, you are wondering, there is also an unlimited Skytrain pass, but it won't benefits you since Skytrain is just a part of Bangkok public transport. We will be using a combination of Skytrain, bus, boat and tuktuks.

When I posted my photos from Mutianyu慕田峪 section of the Great Wall of China, I didn’t know it would garner so much attention. A lot of you want me to do a post on how to go to Mutianyu: the transportation, what to look out and where to get bus etc.

Xi'an, China: 4 days 3 nights itinerary

A phrase in China “Xi’an is the real heart of China 西安最中国” shows the historical significance of Xi an. They said, go to Shanghai and you will find a 100-year-old China; go to Beijing and you will find a 1000-year-old China; go to Xi’an and then you will find a 3000-year-old China.” I found this saying very true. After Shanghai, Beijing, and Tianjin, this is my last city in China before I head straight back to Malaysia and start my life as a junior doctor. It must be extra special, it better be, and it sure was!

China Itinerary: 3 Days in Beijing

       Last spring, I’ve spent a month in China. In that period of time, I've stayed 5 days in Beijing, you can read my itinerary (5 days in Beijing) here. However, I’ve been getting more and more inquiries on a more doable three days in Beijing itinerary as most of us aren’t able to get long leave. Although 3 days in Beijing might not seem like much, but you will have just enough time to cover the most famous sites. There is so much to see in Beijing, so many things you can do, but if you are down with only 3 days in Beijing, what will you choose to cover? You gonna see the best of Beijing. Trimmed down the fat, My choice for the best of Beijing in 3 days is as follow.

Oedolgae Rock (외돌개), Jeju Island , South Korea

        The Oedolgae, is also known as the Changgun Rock, Oedolgae means General and why on earth that the Koreans name it that way? Korean Legend says that during the war times, a general disguised the rock as a gigantic general in order to ward off Mongolian attacks. And it (surprisingly) worked! The enemy troops were so frightened by what they saw; all of them committed suicide! To honour the victory, the rock was henceforth known as Oedolgae Rock.

Jeju Island, South Korea: 5 Days 4 Nights Itinerary

       For as long as I remember, Jeju island did not make it into my travel bucket list, for whatever reason I might have. But a week before entering 2019, a wild idea stroked me: I have to escape in the name of a spontaneous trip, anywhere as long as I can be on a plane (well don’t ask me since when I’ve developed this love for flying). I browsed on the AirAsia website and immediately locked my eyes on Jeju. Not only because the fare was quite reasonable but also, I simply have to end my “prejudice” towards Korea. and so, I’ve booked the ticket almost instantly, packed my bags and fervently pray for 4 days to pass by in a blink of an eye. Next, I’ll have 5 days in Jeju Island! How exciting!

A Visit to the Port of Nagoya Public Aquarium: Is it Worth it?

      Our last attraction of the trip was the Nagoya Port Public Aquarium. After a brief stroll at the port, we headed straight into the North building of the aquarium, greeted by, our first sight, the bottlenose dolphins, killer whales, and Beluga whales! We ran for the dolphins show first because the show was about to start. It was spectacular, so please take note of the show time so that you won’t miss it! There are 3 scheduled dolphin shows per day at the largest main pool in all of Japan, with stands seating approximately 3,000 people.

Japan Experience: Strolling Inuyama, Aichi Dressing in Kimono

      Kimono is the traditional garment of Japan and it can be literally translated as a “thing to wear” (ki means “wear” and mono means ”thing”). The earliest Kimono were heavily influenced by Hanfu, which is the traditional Chinese clothing before the Qing dynasty. After a fantastic visit to the Inuyama castle, we had a chance to stroll the quaint old town of Inuyama in kimono!
