What a wonderful island Ko Phi Phi is. Located on the South-West coast of Thailand, cradled within the marine-rich Andaman Sea, the island of Ko Phi Phi is full to the brim with some serious scenic abundance!
Getting to Phi Phi island couldn’t be easier. If you’re coming from Bangkok then you can get a train down to Surat Thani, which will take about eight hours, then get an air conditioned bus from Surat Thani across the country to Krabi. The bus journey will take about three hours and is usually quite comfortable. Once you get to Krabi, you then hop onto a ferry for a two hour journey that will take you to the little island of Ko Phi Phi.
It’s not all architecture, shopping and food that attracts travelers to Singapore, you’ll also find great adventure activities as well. Vacations offer everyone a great opportunity to unwind and relax, and some vacationers tour holiday destinations for the architectural grandeur and beautiful sights.
But for adventure junkies trapped inside a monotonous schedule of work, a state of relaxation (read complete inactivity) may not be as pleasurable as a fun-filled adventure vacation. One of my most adventurous trips was to Singapore. It was a bold plan, as Singapore is known for its cultural heritage, architectural marvels and great food. I never thought Singapore could appease my adventure hunger as well, but as I went in the search of adventure, I was amazed by the choices I found.

Takayama is also known as Hida-Takayama or 飛騨高山 for those of you willing to brave the difficult Japanese language. I highly recommend visiting this little piece of Japan located in Gifu Prefecture.

Wondering where to shop in Singapore? Asian countries as shoppers heavens – offering extreme deals and a shopping experience like no other. But in my opinion, nowhere screams retail therapy like Singapore. It’s a mecca of consumerism, complete with boutique lined streets, futuristic entertainment malls, vintage markets, and easy to get lost in shopping centers. [...]
Most people don’t think of Hong Kong as an especially romantic destination. Many travelers are more likely to book flights to Hong Kong for business, where they will spend several days sequestered in an office without much time to explore the city’s attractions. Even those who have visited Hong Kong might be surprised to learn [...]
When I graduated school, like many of my generation, I had no idea where I wanted to go. No aspirations on what I wanted to be. A friend suggested that volunteering abroad teaching English as a foreign language could help me get away from my problems and get a fresh perspective on things. I had [...]
