Disneyland, I’ve finally met you! Let me share with you some of the memories that I’ve brought back from my virgin trip to Hong Kong Disneyland. Like any girl would, I grew up watching all the Disney movies and being so familiar with each Disney princess’s theme song, dreaming that one day, I would be there to experience the Disney magic…
What would you do if you had 24 Hours in Penang? Penang is listed as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site in 2008, and since then, many tourists flock to the Island for cultural sights, natural scenery and glorious food. Over the years, Penang slowly embraced foreign influence to keep up with the booming tourism industry, yet retaining its historical and cultural roots. Well, to cramp all the must-visits places into a day isn’t an easy task, so keep reading to know what to include in your own Penang Itinerary!
Oxford, one of the most beautiful and architectural city in England, is known worldwide as the home of the University of Oxford. Anyone who has been to Oxford would have fallen in love with its stunning English architecture, history and culture. Take a day-trip to Oxford from London to go on a Harry Potter walking tour, visit museums and libraries, punting, exploring gardens and even wandering through a castle. Here are 14 places that you definitely must visit in Oxford.
Do I even have to elaborate further? Huge disclaimer that this post is going to be rather detailed list of all the top places in London and Oxford that EVERY die-hard and self-proclaimed Harry Potter fan has to know of and visit. Plan for your own Harry Potter Walking Tour with your friends during your next visit to United Kingdom and relive all those fond memories of reading and watching the Harry Potter series.
During a road trip to North Wales (which I would be sharing more about in the next few posts), my friends and I have decided to conquer the largest and longest Zip line in Europe at Zip World. Even if you are someone who doesn’t like anything to do with heights or activities that defy gravity (like me), you would probably end up enjoying this. Enjoy and experience the closest thing to flying.
Macau is a beautiful place where you can see and experience Portuguese influences everywhere you go. All their addresses and street names are in Portuguese by the way, so this is where your wifi really comes in handy (if not be prepared to get lost). We hardly planned any itinerary so what you see here is all via the google-while-we-travel mentality. Exploring Macau in a day is possible, so follow me to Macau now!
Blessed Easter Sunday! If you are heading to Hong Kong any time from now to 29 May 2016, you might just be in time to visit the Egg-stravaganza (17 March – 29 May) at Hong Kong Disneyland and enjoy a egg-citing eggs hunting session where you find Disney Character Eggs that are planted all over the park. Read more on my trip to Hong Kong Disneyland here. Continue reading
If you are a Spirited Away or Studio Ghibli fan, you would definitely love Jiu Fen. Being a small town since the Qing Dynasty, Jiu Fen is a product of Japanese influence on its architecture and culture, with old and retro Chinese and Japanese cafes, tea houses, food stalls and souvenir shops.

Housed in two historic national monuments – the former Supreme Court and City Hall, the building has been magically restored and transformed into Singapore’s new National Gallery which collects the largest public collection of modern art in Singapore as well as Southeast Asia.

Four years ago, I immediately fell in love with this place and had never wanted to return home ever again. Honestly speaking, I haven’t heard of anyone who have been to United Kingdom, and not love it. For those of you who have a packed schedule to adhere to, time is of the essence and perfect planning is needed. Well, here’s how you can make your short stopover in Manchester worthwhile, just like how I did, all in 12 Hours. Continue reading
