The Gardens by the Bay are one of my favorite places to visit in Singapore. With the two stunning domes, creating unique environments, the lush gardens and the unique SuperTrees, it offers natural beauty and a feat of engineering at the same time.

Fantastic Foto Friday: Kota Kinabalu, Borneo

Kota Kinabalu is the gateway to the untouched nature and wildlife of Northern Borneo. And while the trips to the Orang Utan rehabilitation center, the remote Danum Valley or Mount Kinabalu are all high on my list of recommendations, the city itself has a lot to offer: with a good museum, sandy beaches and island hopping tours, you can easily fill your days. And the views along the city’s waterfront are stunning anytime of day!
