Asia Things to Do

  • Grand Palace

    Bangkok Things to Do

    The Grand Palace was built from the ruins of Ayutthaya, Thailand's ancient capital. With few resources they stripped every stone and brick from Ayutthaya, leaving only the temples, and shipped each one down the Chao Phraya river the hundred kilometers to Bangkok. The Grand Palace was vast - populated with thousands of staff and family members; they...

  • Sentosa Island

    Singapore Things to Do

    Worst experience ever due to combination of broken attraction and staff who really do not like customers ruining their chill out time. We prebooked a birthday party with two lanes for a group of 8-9 year old kids. Wave machine booked for 11am, at 11am on the dot staff wonder up and fiddle with the machine - it's broken. Nobody bothers to mention...

    At first I don't have the money to shop here. This is the luxury shopping district in Tokyo. We do not have a shopping district like this in Belgium, this is enormously place. This is a place for shopaholic where one can shop till they drop. Ginza is not only for shoppers, is also for visitors who has no money like us (laugh). Incredibly massive...

  • Forbidden City - The Palace Museum

    Beijing Things to Do

    better to buy tickets in the North Side (Gate of Divine Might) facing the Jinghsan Park and Hill rather than in the Meridian Gate Sideat the south as there are less crowds and lines at the ticket booths here and you can start your trek here and walk up to the Mao Maosoleum in Tiananmen Square, about 3 kilometers of walking all in all. Opens: 8:30...

  • Gateway of India

    4 out of 5 stars

    Mumbai Things to Do

    The view you have is very nice and there are a lot of Indian people around you too. You won't see a lot of foreigners so that's nice too. The scenery is the Port of Mumbai and the harbour that is located next to it

  • Dudhsagar Waterfalls

    Goa Things to Do

    Dudhsagar Waterfalls, at 2,000 feet high, are the highest falls in India. Dudhsagar means "sea of milk" and the name comes from the white foam created from the force of the water as it drops. From the parking lot, it's about a 5-10 minute hike down to the falls. It can be a little rough for anyone with mobility problems. You'll pass through lush...

  • Penang Hill (Bukit Bendera)

    Penang Things to Do

    There's a cable car to take you up Penang hill. I went on the first dry Saturday in a few weeks, after a very wet week, during the school holiday, just after Christmas, at about 11am. I therefore ended up queuing for nearly 2 hours (and 30 mins on the way back). Was it worth it? Probably not quite. I did enjoy the views, the temples and some of the...

  • Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum

    4 out of 5 stars

    Hanoi Things to Do

    Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum is the most important site in Hanoi for all loyal Vietnamese people. Ho Chi Minh, the nation's hero, is laid out there (against his will, by the way - he wanted to be cremated after his death!).

  • Phi Phi Islands

    4 out of 5 stars

    Phuket Things to Do

    We traveld with HongTae Tours from Patong Beach. They picked us up at the hotell at least 40 minutes late, and we left with the boat also to late... The boat trip itself, was not good! To many people on the boat, its a long trip and you dont see anything unless you sit in front of the boat. Of course there are differetn boats, but most of them...

  • Gion (Geisha District)

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Kyoto Things to Do

    In the evening we had a quick stroll through the Gion area of the city. It was pretty with its wooden buildings and lamps. However, I do not feel we really did the area justice as we were exhausted, hungry and cold by the time we got here. Gion is Kyoto's most famous geisha district. It is located around Shijo Avenue between Yasaka Shrine in the...

    One of the principal sites of Delhi and visited by thousands is the Red Fort or Lal Quila. Magnificent 30 odd metre sandstone walls, by their colour give the name.

  • The Karen Long Neck Hilltribe Settlement

    Chiang Mai Things to Do

    I came here, wherever it was, as part of a long-necked tribe daytrip I did from Chiang Mai. We arrived after visiting an orchid farm and riding elephant at the Chok Chai Elephant Camp but things just seemed to be very touristy with lots of souvenir stalls selling tribal arts and crafts and jewellery items. The girls here come from several different...

    Its a spot in the hills around Islamabad. The whole city can be viewed from here. Even Rawal Dam Lake can be viewed from here. It is a good, health air picnic spot.

  • Ko Larn - Coral Island

    Pattaya Things to Do

    If you are staying in Pattaya, it is well worth spending a day enjoying the beaches of Koh Larn.

To get either the public ferry or a speedboat go down to...

  • Island Hopping

    Boracay Island Things to Do

    I consider Allan Fun Tours as the most affordable Island Hopping tour in Boracay. We went there last July 2013 and for only P700 plus P20 for the snorkelling gears, we had an amazing tour with drink/eat-all-you-can lunch buffet. We want to try the Crystal Cove Cave so we paid an extra of P200 per person. I love the cave and the view outside the...

  • Waterfalls

    Ko Samui Things to Do

    Located inside the Tropical Garden (a very affordable 50baht per person), the waterfall and surrounding tropical forest itself is gorgeous. However, when you pay your entry fee to the garden they practically force onto each tourist a "free bottle of water" as a thank you for their payment. Whilst good intentioned, this leads to many thoughtless...

  • Osaka Castle

    Osaka Things to Do

    Osaka Castle has a wonderful observation deck on the 8th floor (which might be the fifth floor above the entrance level. Since the tower is built on a high hill, and the surrounding area is mostly park with no tall buildings, the tower feels even taller, actually 50 meters above the city. Nearby the tower are the castle grounds, now mostly park,...

  • St. Paul's Church Ruins

    Melaka Things to Do

    I can't really add anything to the excellent history people have already provided, so instead I'll offer a few tips: It's a short climb to the church, but it's exposed and very hot - the steps also look like they might be treacherous if there were to be a downpour while you were at the top. There's a lad selling cold drinks just before the final...

  • Amber Fort

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Jaipur Things to Do

    We had a guide for the city and our first stop was Amber (pronounced Amer) fort. A steep ramp led to the entrance, at which point you could walk up or take an elephant ride up. There is some controversy about the treatment of those elephants so we walked up to the fort. The fort was built in 1592 by Raja Man Singh I. It was built in white marble...

    The Sarawak River Cruise goes for 1.5 hours and cost RM60 each, we could have booked a cheaper tour but we liked the look of this big boat.

    Johor Bahru Things to Do

    Johor's state mosque is possibly its finest building - a gleaming white blend of Victorian English and Islamic architecture that overlooks the straits to Singapore.

    Liu Rong Si is a cool little temple that is definitely visit-worthy.
