28 parallels in Asia of the world's most beautiful destinations

If we see the universe in a geometrical point of view, then I would take the different continents as parallels; never the same, but with overlapping characteristics.

Thanks to my insomniac nights, I've resorted to viewing pictures and reading blogs tagged 'wanderlust' about explorations and travels around the world to let my night fade to dawn faster. However that has only affirmed my deep seated belief and jealousy that you can never exhaust the world of what it has to offer. 

Europe to me is a historical, cultural mecca that boasts blocks after blocks of red bricks attractions (sorry for my Asian stereotype). America, a place of rapid modernity and well-preserved ancient history. From its medieval Golden Age to the headlines of 21st century, big things have and are happening on the other side of the globe.

It is only normal to have my eyes plastered on Europe and America, or even Australia, but for years, I've overlooked what's right beside me. Stuck with my very emaciated travel-piggybank that is self-funded and trapped in the vortex of travels these few years, I've been around Asia a lot and I have to say, the world is a geometrical figure.

Keukenhof Garden, Netherlands

If you get eye/ear/orgasms from floral beauty, Keukenhof Garden in the Netherlands is the place for you. But before Asian counterparts start brawling over the loss of university exchange opportunities in Amsterdam, I have a piece of comforting fun fact for you. Tulips are not Dutch and have their roots from the East!

The Tulips at Keukenhof Garden is approximately the 500th generation since their natural habitat is the rocky, dry mountainous region around China and Russia border, (no) thanks to Botanist Caroulus Clusius. Brings me to my next point...

Srinagar Tulip Festival, Kashmir

Bringing around 60 finest species of Tulips to a 15-hectare garden, Srinagar Tulip Festival is crowned the biggest flower festival in Asia. Now you don't have to fly half the globe to run through a garden filled with tulips, Kashmir presents this unique opportunity each April.

Lopburi Sunflower Fields, Thailand

Tian Zi Fang @ French Concession, Shanghai, China

Tian Zi Fang is an art and craft enclave, transformed from the residential area in the French Concession of Shanghai, China. A vanguard of creative expressions, it is as if you're walking through a maze with endless rows of alfresco bars, cafes, design studios, and galleries.

Tourists sit outside the bars and cafes, inhabitants hurry by with their daily errands while you walk through and fall in love with these stoned-brick walled shophouses and lanes with infinite novelties. Throughout the year, the eateries will be changing their menus in accordance to seasons. 

This architectural composition denotes the city's eventful history with the West since the mid 19th century and has been preserved in its original structure.

Haji Lane, Singapore

Haji Lane is in the Kampong Glam neighbourhood in Singapore. This lane features the preserved pre-war shophouses selling an array of contemporary, quirky garments and accessories by local designers and young entrepreneurs.

Peeking from the turns of these shophouses are cafes and eateries with open-door concept where you can people-watch your restless, humid day away.

Have your love signed, sealed, and locked eternally

Padlocking in Paris, France

Lovebirds' dreams to pledge their undying romance - after padlocking their love-locks on the fence, lovers toss the keys into the Seine River for eternal devotion. Or destruction? STOP! Like how life weighs down on you, the weight of your immense love (locks) are becoming too overwhelming for the most romantic bridge to Eiffel Tower to handle.

Padlocking in N Seoul Tower, South Korea

N Seoul Tower is a romantic pilgrimage for couples who wish to declare their everlasting love. Unlike Paris, N Seoul Tower has been encouraging (self) lovers to leave locks in designated areas.

Another interesting feature of this place would be the heart shaped chairs with leaning edges to make you fall for each other again, literally this time round.


Live like a rouge treasure hunter

Sahara Desert, Middle East continent

Let the beauteous and hypnotising view of the natural solarium captivate you and forget about the scorching heat that penetrates your skin. Thirst, swollen lips and deafening silence hollowing through your ears, you ride on the sturdy backs of the camels; exposed to the majestic burning sun without shelter. I think of Sahara.

Flamboyant, whimsical architecture

Scandinavian houses

Despite the notorious gloomy winter in Scandinavia, it is still no surprise that they are home to one of most admirable architectural designs, to me at least, when you have IKEA at your backyard. 

Actually, fun fact for this multi-coloured mishmash of cottages: some of the islands in Norway have rules about which colour you can paint your home.

Sapa City Centre, Vietnam

Many would associate Sapa with Vietnam's Fansipan, highest mountain in the Indochina region, and the rice terraces hidden amidst the mountainous range. But as we date back to Vietnam's colonial past, you will notice that Sapa was a delightful, old French Hill Station. Hence, some of the influences from its colonial past still lingers.

Call me shallow for not having been to Europe and sending pictures of Sapa City Centre to my friends; telling them I'm in Norway. But that was the first parabolic vibes I got.

Not all of us end up with Prince Charming

Horse Riding in UK's countryside

If dreaming would get me there, I would. UK is a land of many faces, from pulsing city life in London to the intricate countryside towns. It offers one of the top-notch horse riding destinations with its moorlands, ambling streams and coastlines... And maybe Prince as Charming as William.


Horse Riding in Beijing, China

I would give up my Prince Charming any day for a horse riding session with this 80 year old man who might have starred in your favourite Chinese sword-fighting movie. I went with my parents and sister to Beijing's countryside and spent less than 400SGD on 3 hours of horse riding on bigger Mongolian horses. Steal!

New Zealand's bungee jump

To some it's Bungy, and others Bungee. But either would track your thoughts to the adrenalined-packed activity that hangs your life by a thread, literally. Elastic cord, if you like it. Bungee jumping is an essential feature on every daredevil's bucket list - to be diving from giddy height and hanging loose in mid-air, and especially in New Zealand, since they were the "inventors" of Bungee.


Longqing Gorge Bungee

Not only a relaxing destination, Longqing Gorge is an ideal place to do extreme sports such as Bungee jumping. With the same thrill as world's known AJ Hackett Bungee in Queenstown, New Zealand, Longqing Gorge suspends from a height of 50m, towering the jade-green clear waters.

Hmong New Year Celebration, Km52 Village, Laos

In case you don't already know, Southeast Asia region has one of the most complex and difficult identifications with race, ethnicity, nationality, and culture. Because of colonialism and it being an important crossroads of the world, influences from India, China and Europe have been embedded into the traditional indigenous culture of this region. 

Hmongs are actually Chinese refugees from the last dynasty, Qing. Although Hmongs can be found worldwide, they have the biggest enclave in Laos and I was blessed with this considerably once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to celebrate the traditional Hmong New Year; retained since 1700s.

That's right, the last you checked, Indonesia and Africa continent are separated by the still-existing Indian Ocean. Lake Toba is the world's largest volcanic lake and some 69,000 to 77,000 years back, it was the site of a massive (using thesaurus intently) supervolcanic eruption that caused a planet-wide die-off of many species and a climate changing event. Though I find it hard to believe, ashes from these eruption can be found in East Africa and has changed the carbon composition in Greenland!

TLC should have changed it to 'don't go chasing volcanoes'. But while it is relatively safer now, I should gather some faith and visit this endless lake that is 100km long, 30km wide and 500m deep. (Wait, is that larger than Singapore?)

Paving way for tourism and modernity, Cai Rang Floating Market still retains its charm as the center of rural lifestyle.

Some of the saddest lessons in history

Auschwitz Concentration Camps, Poland

The factory of death, they call it. Auschwitz - the network of German Nazi concentration camps built and operated by the Third Reich during WW2 in Polish areas. A haunting spectacle as you walk past the most soul-destroying example of human memorabilia - a glass cabinet piled with human hair.

As we stay sheltered (wrong choice of word) in the comfort of our homes, many wouldn't and couldn't have imagined how political, religious and racial revolutions would have ruined peace. However, that being said so blatantly, it does not mean that our curiosity to learn about these topic dies with our thankfully-lack-of-experiences. Majoring in Military History, Auschwitz has always been on my bucket list. I wanted to buy myself a ticket to Poland/Germany for my 21st birthday, but guess who spent all these travel funds on Asia?
