Cameron Highlands, Malaysia – getting the most out of wildlife in this stunning corner of South East Asia

I try to put it down to bad eyesight, but the fact is I’m just not properly clued in on birds and other fauna to be able […]

Review: Salomon Speedcross 4 for Hiking Mt. Fuji

by Ande Geronimo @ Chasing Summits

I love my Speedcross 3. It was reliable in Mt. Agung, and it helped me get through my first winter trek in India. But it’s time for an upgrade. It’s time to say goodbye. I’m glad Salomon introduced Speedcross 4, the improved version. I bought a pair purposely for Mt. Fuji, but before the trip, I was able to test these shoes’ performance during the following treks and tours. – Ho Chi Minh walking tour (concrete roads and flat surfaces)Read More

Inside The East Gardens of the Imperial Palace – What to See

As a responsible traveller, it is crucial for you to understand the places and the cultures that you visit for what they were in the past and how that’s impacted what they are like today. There […]

Hostels in Singapore: 5footway.inn Project Ann Siang

by Deenise Glitz @ Deenise Glitz

From a traveller's perspective, Singapore is one of the most travel-friendly destinations in Asia. From budget hostels to luxury hotels, you can easily find a suitable accommodation that fits your budget. You can find hostels and hotels in almost every town or precinct in Singapore, but most of them are relatively quite good for the price you are paying. And I enjoy doing staycations at our local hostels and hotels to see how they fare with the accommodation offered in other countries.

If on the first three days, the train tickets are draining my funds, I’ll get a pass.” “But you can’t get one when you’re already inRead More
