Singapore

  Singapore, in my opinion, is a city with a lot to offer. First it is important to know that the train system (MRT – Mass Rapid Transit) works exceptionally well and easy. The stations are named after the attraction point at that stop, which makes planning your day very easy. If shopping is your …

Hong Kong

Most people I know only think of one thing when Hong Kong is mentioned… shopping! And with good reason. Everywhere you look you will see shops and malls, with every brand name you can think of – Louis Vuitton, Prada, Dior, Versace – seriously, anything you can think of, it’s there. You will definitely need …

The other three Townships (or Islands) are: Beigan Township, Jyuguang Township, and Dongyin Township. (Refer to photo). I was ready with map …

Ishigaki – Japan

We arrived in Ishigaki in the morning and had about 4 hours to explore, but I wish I had more time! This beautiful island on the coast of Japan has so many ‘summer holiday’ things to do. Unfortunately we didn’t have enough time, but I’ll tell you what we did, and also what you should …

Keelung – Taiwan

  The port of Keelung is the gateway to Taipei, and what an interesting place! Most people would rush to get to Taipei, but there is plenty to do and see within walking distance from the ship right here in Keelung. First there is the famous Night Market, that’s the one with the yellow lanterns. …
