Best of Borneo in 60 Seconds

Borneo is my favorite wildlife destination in Asia – watching our close cousins, the Orang Utan, or sneaking up on a snake are just as exhilarating as seeing a baby silver leaf monkey hiding in the trees! Climb Mt Kinabalu, learn about long houses or the last head hunters or relax on the beach – all possible on Borneo!

Fantastic Foto Friday: Yangon, Myanmar – the city to visit now!

YGN Kandawgyi Lake Night

Many times when I visited a city, I wonder how it was 10 years ago and wish I’d come sooner. But Yangon‘s time is now – I loved it seven years ago and it is a city that still feels unique now, so you should go sooner than later!
The Shwedagon Pagoda and Kandawgyi Lake are the most impressive sights and it’s great to see them at night from the rooftop of the Esperado Hotel!
