Hyatt Regency Kyoto is located just a few minutes away from JR Kyoto Train Station in a quiet corner in the traditional and historic area of Higashiyama Shichijo, across from the Kyoto National Museum and next to the remarkable Sanjusangendo Temple. Outside, minimalist architecture is folded into the neighborhood by a grove of bamboo. Inside, blonde wood and clean lines make you feel like you are … This review was featured on Saturday January 31st, 2015
Otero was another hostel with multiple guests all just sleeping in one large room. It had two rooms that each slept about fifteen. We were provided with the sanitary covers for the bunks again and I am pretty sure there were blankets in the cupboards between the bunks. The cupboards were nice because they gave everyone some free storage space but they did have the disadvantage that they didn’… This review was featured on Friday January 30th, 2015
No trips to Malaysia will be complete without experiencing a 24 hours all day long Mamak style street food. Mamak is a term coined which refers to the mixed Malay Indian community in Malaysia. The first Original Kayu Nasi Kandar shop was founded in SS2 Petaling Jaya back in 1974. However, nasi kandar was originally a Penang dish. These days they have nine branches distributed nationwide.

I always find time to enjoy the Niagara Wine Festival in late summer but have never taken time out to browse the venues of the Niagara Ice Wine Festival in January. That could mainly be attributed to the fact that I usually run away screaming to a warmer climate and miss the festival altogether, but this year I stayed home.
The Festival takes place over the last three weekends in January and t… This review was featured on Tuesday January 27th, 2015
Located near KL Sentral, the National Museum of Malaysia is very much worth visiting, once you find it. And a good first place tostart your Malaysian adventures.
But getting to it, is a whole another matter, if you are trying to get it by walking from KL Sentral. And that may be the biggest problem when visiting the place, though not really the fault of the museum itself. You will have to walk … This review was featured on Monday January 26th, 2015
It was Dec 24th. 2014, Brian picked me up from Melbourne airport on my return from Uluru, then we went to different part of the city of Melbourne for sightseeing. It was excellent to have a friend like him and driving me around specially places that I would have never found without him, and not to forget it was a day before Christmas.
After couple of hours of driving different parts of Melbour… This review was featured on Sunday January 25th, 2015
In its website it's said "Largest Buffet in Malaysia". I'm not sure how true, but it is indeed a huge place.
Jogoya was once a very popular Japanese Buffet Restaurant but its quality deteriorated with time. I got a cheap Groupon Deal and agreed to join my friend for dinner although I've always heard negative feedbacks about this place.
Pros and Cons

Even for someone as picky as myself, I really can't fault this hostel one bit. It deserves all the accolades and awards its received. A short walk away from the train station, it's easy to miss. Probably because it's on the main street but the entrance is on the side and there isn't a bright banner with its name. Thank God for the website's instructions about having gone too far if we see the "red… This review was featured on Thursday January 22nd, 2015
Trogir( ancient name Tragurion) is the UNESCO heritage site max. 30 km away northwest from Split. Old town is located on the island between mainland and the island of Čiovo, connected with them by a pedestrian and two road bridges.
My friends and I took a city bus no. 37 from Split to Trogir for 21 HRK per person, which takes passengers every half an hour even on Sundays. The ride lasted abou… This review was featured on Tuesday January 20th, 2015
