SIEM REAP IN A NUTSHELL

SIEM REAP IN A NUTSHELL

After a 6 hour road trip from Bangkok to Siem Reap and arrived in the evening, I’d never thought before Siem Reap is more developed and cleaner than villages we passed along the journey from Poipet.

Traveling untuk Pemula

Zaman sekarang, wajib hukumnya untuk menunaikan rukun iman yang ke-TUJUH. Yaitu,Traveling-lah selagi mampu atau tidak mampu (harap dimampu-mampu-in aja). Kenapa harus begitu??

Christmas in the Tropic

In 2008, my Swedish and Dutch friends got their culture shock when they experienced Christmas in this country, they’d never seen such an extravagant Christmas tree in Europe as what they saw in Singapore, the place where they embrace this culture for centuries.

Overland Route Bangkok to Siem Reap

Overland from Bangkok to Siem Reap is part of my Indochina road trip in 2013 where I started my journey from Kuala Lumpur to Ho Chi Minh without stopping over at the airport.

Kebun Anggur di Tropis

Bicara tentang kebun anggur yang terbersit biasanya benua Eropa. Namun, jangan salah, tidak perlu jauh-jauh ke Eropa kita bisa merasakan sensasi romantisnya kebun anggur, tentunya dengan arsitektur bergaya Eropa serta Kincir Angin.

Pernah ke Pattaya, Thailand ?? Sayangnya, Pattaya selalu identik dengan gemerlapnya dunia malam

Halloween Horror Night

Every culture has their own ghost story and as an Asian, I prefer European ghost to Indonesian or Asian ghost. What ?? Are you kidding me?? You like ghost ?? Well, listen to me first !! European ghost, such a Vampire is a good-looking ghost, they dress well with tuxedo, and as a ghost he still has laundry time. Then, where’s the scary thing of it ??

Yes, today is spooky Halloween’s day!! Let’s talk about it.
