Back to Borneo

Work brought me back to Kota Kinabalu again last week, and this time,  I got to spend some R&R time with the girls after all the work was done:

Cambodia: Siem Reap

As much as I love wondering around the Angkor temple ruins, Ting Ting didn’t quite feel the same way. Luckily, Siem Reap has plenty to keep everyone happy…

Cambodia: Ta Prohm

The third and final stop on our temple run was none other than Ta Prohm, the temple made famous by Angelina Jolie’s Tomb Raider:

 

Cambodia: Bayon Temple

The second stop on our “small circuit” Angkor tour was Bayon Temple:

Cambodia: Angkor Wat

Angkor Wat has long been on our to-do list…and thanks to yet another long weekend, we finally made our way to the City of Temples.

Back to Legoland

Legoland, the final stop on our weekend trip, is without doubt the part Ting Ting was most looking forward to…

Singapore Zoo Night Safari

The night safari at the Singapore Zoo is the world’s first nocturnal zoo and definitely worth a visit. Word of advice — get there early.

Singapore: Chinatown & Clarke Quay

On our second stop, we spent the day in Singapore — and since on our last trip we spent pretty much all of our time  around Marina Bay, this time we checked out other parts of the Garden City — Chinatown and Clarke Quay.  Unsurprisingly, Singapore Chinatown is by far the cleanest Chinatown you will ever come across; and surprisingly (in a good way), there are tons of eatery that server northern Chinese food…something that we missed in KL.

Melaka revisited

With a busy summer in the books, it’s finally time to get back on the road. To kick things off, we made our trip down south again, spending a long weekend in Melaka, Johor Bahru and Singapore, almost exactly one year after we first made the trip.  First stop, again, was Melaka.  A combination of the blazing heat and the baffling “no photography” rule in many local establishments left my itchy shutter finger unsatisfied, but luckily the delicious food more than made up for it…

Guilin: Lijiang

No trip to Guilin is complete without a visit to Lijiang — even though Yulong River makes for a more relaxing bamboo rafting experience (all rafts on Lijiang are motorized), the majestic scenery along Lijiang is definitely worth the time.
