54 km south of the constant hustle and bustle that is Jakarta, lies a city with temperate climate and an impressive botanical garden, as well as one of Indonesia's presidential palaces. Yet it is often overlooked by those traveling to the Indonesian capital.

You breathe fresh air every day, wake up to the sound of the forest every morning, eat healthy food every day, have pristine rainforest at your disposal, and go to bed with the sound of critters every night... the only drawback? When it rains all kinds of insects go loco and fly around every light bulb they can find in dizzying circles. Such a small price to pay in return to all the goodness your body needs, and gets.
The silver minibus speeds through the main highway that connects Bali’s cultural heart at Ubud with the volcanic lakes of Bratan as well as Buyan and Tamblingan further north. Short moments after p...

“From the beginning, even before Singapore became independent, we sought to build a world-class living environment here through greenery. At first we aimed to be a “Garden City” – parks, reservoirs, Kallang River cleaned up, Singapore River, later cleaned up… The next phase from being a “Garden City” is to make ourselves into a “City in a Garden”. It is a play on words, but it means something different, because it means connecting our communities and our places and spaces through parks, gardens, streetscapes and skyrise greenery.”

Did you know that Kucinta was supposed to be the mascot for Singapore tourism board? Did you know that there are three little cat statues very close to the Fullerton Hotel? Here's a brief history on Kucinta and a quick look at the city's tourism strategy.
The tiny island has been serving one of the world’s busiest trade routes for centuries, beckoning people and money, like the Japanese fortune cat, to come to this strategically located piece of lan...

Despite the annual 'trash season', Menjangan Island's marine life was truly an indisputable beauty. Glad I made the decision to rent an underwater camera just before setting off for the snorkeling sites.
He plunged into the water and darted in front of us, the effortless movements of his slender body a telltale of his affinity to the ocean. He looked around, scanning the corals beneath him, and not...

Explore Hong Kong's western Mid-Levels, you'll find some of the island's hidden gems, and learn about a dark chapter in its history you would have never imagined.
History is a subject many people scrutinize with frown on their faces, one that triggers discussions and evoke memories, both good and bad. It also is a terrific means to raise a optimism and bring...

One of the best things about Hong Kong is despite its size, there are so many interesting places to be discovered by those who are willing to get off the well-trodden paths. The village of Lai Chi Wo, hidden deep in the northeastern corner of the New Territories is a small village with a scenery, and story, well worth the hike.
Four centuries ago when China was ruled by the Qing Dynasty a few Hakka people – native to vast lands in southeastern China – searched for a new place to settle down, probably caused by growing com...

No words, just excitement. This July I will embark on a trip of a lifetime.
If every single person on the planet were given the opportunity to travel around the world, I believe they would have answered ‘yes’ without the slightest doubt. Each individual, however, has his/h...

West Bali National Park's lush forests are home to a wide array of endangered animals, both on land and at sea. This is the place to go to feel how good it is to reconnect with nature and to understand what a healthy environment can provide us, so we won't take Mother Nature for granted.
The intense sweet and faintly zesty redolence of lush forest instantly permeated the air as I opened the car window. The deep, earthy scent of the dirt road augmented the complex chemicals in the a...
