As we were approaching the destination of my most recent hike, I glanced outside and saw a range of mountains ahead of me. The sky was as blue as the sea and there was a cotton wool cloud bobbing above the mountain. It's been a while since I've seen such a welcoming and refreshing sight in the m
I visited quite a few temples in Thailand, Wat Phan On in Chiang Mai was one that I particularly liked. It's located inside the walled city, the old part of town, near my hotel. Although I only stayed in the city for a couple of days, it seemed that I was always walking past it. I know the tem
On the evening of Loi Krathong, @waybeyondpadthai said on the SteemFest Telegram group that she was going to Golden Mount. I had no idea what it was, but when a local Steemian says they're going to a place on a festive night, you really have no reason not to go!!!

I'm a sucker for desserts and will never pass on a good one. When I was in Bangkok, some of the Team Malaysia girls mentioned a dessert place called After You, I was there immediately after I found. The shop is inside a shopping mall called Siam Paragon which has a posh gourmet food court.
I really do not like going on organised trip when I go away. Most of the time you join other tourists and get transported around like cattle from one place to another. The tour guide tells you most of the information you need to know about an attraction and all you need to do is to go in to take a p
Today is my very last day in Thailand. Once I get back to Taiwan, these two amazing two weeks will be memories, accessible only via all my photos, and I expect continuous banter with those whom I've connected via Telegram, WhatsApp, Discord and Facebook (yup, it still has its purpose in life).
After Steemfest, I stayed behind in Bangkok for a few days to wind down. I ended up in Chinatown one day, not by choice, but because I nearly got scammed. I'll tell you the full story tomorrow.
Since I had arrived at Chinatown, I figured I'd make the most of it and do a little walk around, turns o

Now I finally know why people always rave about Ewha Womans University in Seoul! This is not only one of the most prestigious university in Korea, it's also the largest female education institution in the world. But that's not the reason why it attracts so many tourists, or rather millenniums. Yes,
The other day I posted about my hike at Dakeng. When I got back down from the mountain, I saw a lady selling some local produce. It was a simple stall, and the fruit and veg were just placed on cardboards on top of crates. There were a lot of papaya in different shapes and sizes. They're all the
It's been over two months since I've gone on a hike. Now autumn is here, hopefully I will get out more. Today I went on a hike locally in Taichung, so pick up time was 8 am instead of 7 am. Yah!!! Another hour to sleep in.

It's October and it's time for the annual Taichung Jazz Festival, a highlight of the local culture calender and something that I never miss. The festival started last Friday, and will continue till next Sunday, that's ten full days packed with jazz performances from around the world.
