Penang Revisited

Over our long weekend in Ipoh, we made a quick trip to our favorite island on the peninsular — Penang.

Lost World of Tambun

The main attraction on our Ipoh trip for Ting Ting was Lost World of Tambun, a theme (mostly water) park located just outside the town:

Ipoh: Mural Arts Lane

In a quiet lane tucked between Jalan Masjid and Jalan Sultan Iskandar in Ipoh, you will find a large collection of murals depicting the different cultures of Malaysia. For someone who’s a bit obsessed with street art, this outdoor gallery is a little slice if heaven…

Hanoi: Old Quarter

Our 10 day winter holiday began in Hanoi, Vietnam’s capital city with an intoxicating chaotic energy. There is no better way to experience it all than to simply wonder around the Old Quarter, which is precisely what we did…
