Hotel Review: Conrad Tokyo

Conrad Tokyo is undoubtedly one of Tokyo's finest luxury hotel. Whilst the location may not necessarily be the most exciting for the leisure traveller, the unbelievable views might just make up the extra few minutes in travel time on Tokyo's ultra efficient train network.   Guests are welcomed by doormen at the ground level before being whisked on the high speed...
Uniworld SS River Empress
I did not think I would survive being stuck on a boat for a week but I absolutely loved this cruise and did not want to leave!

Bergün/Bravuogn, Switzerland - the self-proclaimed most beautiful place on earth has banned tourists from taking pictures. Their reason: is just far too beautiful and posting photos of it on social media will cause others to feel depressed they are not there.   According to a statement by the local village tourist office, “It is scientifically proven that beautiful holiday photos on social media...

Last year, I visited Hanoi and spent the New Year there. I also spent 2 days on a boat in Ha Long Bay. You can read about my review of the 2D 1N stay in Ha Long Bay here. Ha Long Bay is beautiful and the waters are so calm that it is a breeze kayaking in the waters.   However,...
A couple of years ago, I read an article published by Yahoo! that the Northern Lights are fading. It will take another 10 years before it comes 'back on' again. A few months flew by and my Facebook wall were flooded with pictures of my friends' visit to places like Iceland, Finland and Norway to chase the lights. I was full...
