Hiking to Kjeragbolten (Kjerag Hike), Norway.

       We’ve been warned that the hike to Kjeragbolten is not for the faint-hearted. But the thought of having this world wonder right in front of our eyes tops them all. Let it be difficult, fear won’t put us down this time…. fast forward to July 2017, we were driving back from Kjerag with 3 cameras fully loaded with photos and videos.

3 Days in Stockholm with a Stockholm Pass

      If you are a museum person, you are in luck, because the city offers a wide range of more than a hundred world class museums and attractions. So, as you can see, to cramp in all top attractions of Stockholm in 3 days is a mission impossible. The most budget-friendly way to do this, is to make a checklist of the places you are interested in, calculate the cost (if applicable, buy a Stockholm Pass) and time your visit.

WAKING UP IN: Scandic Parken Hotel, Alesund, Norway

      Scandic Hotel is the largest Nordic hotel operator. With such a high reputation in mind, I’ve set a high standard of my highly anticipated stay. From the moment I push the door of my superior room, the Scandic Parken hotel was destined to be one of my favorite properties in Norway.

Food Affair: HALAL Japanese Buffet Dinner @ G Hotel Kelawai

      I don’t mean to boast, but if you are interested in Japanese cuisine, you’ve come to the right person. Those who personally know me would know that I am a total sucker for Japanese food. Name me any main city and I can most probably name you a sushi restaurant or two. Now that I am back to my hometown, I’m overjoyed to know that my first trip across the Penang Bridge will be to try out a Japanese Buffet.

WAKING UP IN: Comfort Hotel Xpress Central Station, Oslo

      There are a lot of "Comfort Hotel"s in Oslo: Grand Central, Karl JohanBørsparkenXpress Youngstorget... it seems to be a very popular chain among visitors to the capital city of Norway. Browsing through the comments online, I've finally made up my mind.

      Modern, chic and with an advantage of express check in, Comfort Hotel Xpress Central Station is a place to stay where "Budget" and "Comfort" play hand in hand. Turn out, you don’t have to break your bank to have a cozy, private room with en-suite facilities in Central Oslo.

16 Reasons to Visit Vik i Sogn, Norway

       Situating in the heart of Sogn, Vik is usually a quick overnight stop for tourists visiting Flåm from Bergen (or the other way around). During our 3 nights stay in Blix hotel, we’ve seen buses after buses of tourists arriving at dinner time only to leave this charming district the next day right after breakfast. Such a waste, (shaking my head in disagreement) such a waste. Little did they know, if only they give this place a chance, Vik will charm them with its fantastic cultural heritage, landscapes and so much more!

2 Days in Moscow: Itinerary Share

      Technically we only had 36 hours in Moscow, which is far from sufficient. I used to think that one can cover Moscow in one day, but after several trips to the capital, I discovered how wrong I was. Now I encourage anyone interested to visit Moscow to stay at least a week! However, if you are running short on time, then this is the article for you… THE BEST of Moscow, in 36 hours.
