Singapore

A beautiful well organized city with so much to do, to see, to taste.  The Oceanside walk was my favorite and out to eat in India town or China town is truly an ethnic experience.

Kuala Lumpur

A surprise oasis at the equator.  The greatest surprises included beautiful well groomed parks with lots of outdoor seating, lit water fountain shows, and playgrounds for the kids.

Kathmandu

kathmandu
Shocked by the numbers of goats.  Goats are brought into the city to use as a sacrifice to their spirits.  During certain times of year there seems to be more goats then people.

Beijing

Bangkok

Shopping, shopping, shopping

Phnom  Penh

great-frood
One of my favorite things about his city are the delicious cheap eats.  This city has restaurants from all around the world and being relatively small compared to other cities, they are easier to get to.  The prices for exported food are cheaper than other Asian cities.

Vientiane

Ho Chi Minh

bring-a-book
Bring a good book.

Hong Kong

Yangoon

temples-myanmar
Temples, temples, temples. . .welcome to Myanmar.  Over the past few years, they are becoming more western with shopping and coffee shops more common these days.  But, still an ancient city compared to most Asian cities I’ve toured.
Which of these cities interests you?  If you have traveled to one before, what did you notice? Share here as I would love to hear your perspective!

      • Delhi for sure. It was the hub of the Mughal Dynasty and they have made some really marvellous monuments. The Taj Mahal, Agra is the second place you should visit. As for more of the Traditional Indian culture Benaras is a must !
        Rajasthan and Gujarat have beautiful places to visit as the animal sanctuaries and also the food in Rajasthan is yum yum !
        These five places are a must when you visit India.
        If you are having an extended tour, you can also visit Mumbai, the city of dreams and Kerala also known as the God’s own country. And if you plan on coming to Kolkata, the hub of the British emperors, do let me know. I can give you a city tour. Ill be happy to help !

      • I will be checking prices soon. My journey will be made with 4 kids in tow. I know it seems crazy but having the kids along increases the adventure and fun!

  1. Sorry, I didn’t play the game, but I did love the photos. Especially the goats on the ruins and the cityscape. I felt claustrophobic just looking at that photo of the traffic on the bridge.

  2. Such a delicious teaser (particularly the sushi)! Looking forward to hearing immersive accounts of each city visit. Particularly Kuala Lumpur as I haven’t been in more than a decade as am curious to know if you were also shocked by the sharp delineation between the unparalleled opulence around Petronus Towers and the squalid slums that surrounded it.

    • Thanks Gabe. I feel bad that I did not notice the slums in K.L.! It’s interesting you say that though because I’m working on my next blog about slums and beggars and tourists. It must be your compassionate eyes to notice the slums among such magnificent architecture!😊

  4. not much to say about Laos, Vietnam, or China I see. why not just stick to traveling to Europe, Middle East or Africa. leave the Asian countries to actual Asian people.
