Fantastic Foto Friday: Singapore Marina Bay Sands Light & Water Show

Singapore continues to improve upon itself. The laser light show at Marina Bay Sands has been one of my favorite evening events to watch and it has now been taken to a much higher level with the revamped light and water fountain show in front of the Marina Bay Sands Mall. You get a fantastic view of the Singapore Skyline by night and the well choreographed show of water fountains, lights and music is very impressive and should be high on your list of things to see in Singapore.

Fantastic Foto Friday: Nature Getaway in Singapore

Singapore is a busy, cosmopolitan city and “Nature” is probably the last thing that comes to mind. But Singapore has made big efforts to maintain forests and nature preserves or create green parks all over the island, inviting to a retreat from the busy city life. Nature is just a short train ride away, like at the Chinese Garden!

Fantastic Foto Friday: The Parks of Bangkok

Benchasiri Park, Bangkok

Bangkok, the City of Angels, is a bustling city with crowded sidewalks and gridlocked streets and “peaceful” is not the first word that comes to mind! But Bangkok has a great number of parks that give you a little break from the city. There are lakes and outdoor fitness equipment and you’ll spot runners, people exercising or couples on a date! The largest park is Lumpini, but smaller parks like Banjasiri Park in the photo or Benchakiti Park, both near Sukhumvit, are also worth a visit.

Fantastic Foto Friday: Historic Temples at Angkor, Cambodia

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Angkor Wat and its famous temples are one of the most amazing historic destinations I’ve visited – and it’s one of my most recommended places to go! One of the less visited sites is Kbal Spean. At this unique site, you’ll find 1,000s of lingas carved into the riverbed for fertility and prosperity! And you’ll get to enjoy it in the cool of the forest with fewer visitors than elsewhere in Siem Reap no less! It doesn’t hurt, that Siem Reap is also the cheapest city in Asia for 5-star hotels – so, feel free to be pampered after visiting the temples!
