Dreamy Bali tours, day trips from Ubud, with the comfort of hiring a local driver, are a rare insight into most secluded corners of a Hindu fairyland. Surrounded by the wild-emerald waters of the Indian Ocean, the Island of Gods is a tropical paradise, shattering all barriers for art intricacy and natural wonders.
Some of the top Saigon restaurants, often scattered in and around District 1, are preciously kept, well hidden and waiting to be discovered gems. In this sense, to be able to taste something extremely delicious, you have to make your pathway through rows and rows of parked motorcycles or climb not the most beautiful interior stairs. But it’s worth the effort. Each time.
It was a real delight to hop from restaurant to restaurant together with my special one in search for the best meals in Saigon.
The ancient South Korean Bukchon Hanok Village in is a rare time-machine neighborhood. An attraction worth of topping any list of places to visit in Seoul. The village takes you back more than 600 years ago, to the ancient Joseon Dynasty era, while confining pieces of what used to be the lifestyle of the upper class of those times. In all my travels, I have hardly ever seen such a surprising urban artefact.
Bukchon means Northern Village and it was called so due to its strategic position, north of Cheonggyecheong Stream and Jongno.
The city of Istanbul is one of the most colorful and vivid cities I’ve ever seen. There are lots and lots of fun things to do in Istanbul apart from the usual activity of exploring cultural attractions. Due to Romania’s close location to Turkey, traveling to Istanbul has always been accessible for me. I went numerous times for sightseeing, to study, to draw, for business, while visiting some Turkish friends. And it never ceases to amaze me.
