Busuanga Island, Palawan, Philippines

PHILIPPINES | Sunday, 13 Jan 2013 | Views [910]

After spending time in Bulacan, an hour or so from Manila for Xmas, I was well and truly looking forward to getting down to Busuanga for some island time and some diving. As it turned out the flights were booked out on some airlines and travel agents ... Read more >

Sometimes it doesn't all go as you'd like, Part 2.

Because the high speed rail system is relatively new it would've been almost impossible to integrate it in with the railway stations in all the towns and cities on the way down the coast because of existing roads, buildings and infrastructure. This means ... Read more >

Taroko Gorge, Hualien & street drug deals

TAIWAN | Sunday, 13 Jan 2013 | Views [910] | Video

Taroko Gorge is world famous for the marble walled canyon/gorge that you can almost reach across in places. It is really nice, steep, clean, interesting........and busy! We were here in December, which is the off season for tourists (apparently) and ... Read more >

In the Lonely Planet Taiwan guidebook there is a little town south of Taideng that's doesn't get much of a review other than it was apparently named as one of the best places to view the sunrise of the new millennium.  But it has a beach! ... Read more >

She did it again! Every time we hit a snag, wonder whether we should zig or zag, and look around, there is another Filipina (or Filipino - male) to ask if we should be on this platform for the local train, how many stops to XinShi, or whatever. Then, ... Read more >

ChiaYi - ALiShan - Hsinchu

TAIWAN | Monday, 17 Dec 2012 | Views [1559] | Comments [1]

To get to the famous tourist spot of ALiShan you need to go through ChiaYi, which is pretty easy as the HSR train got us there from Taipei in just over an hour. There isn't a lot to do or see there - except a sister (Linda) that Rowie hadn't seen in ... Read more >

Taipei touring

TAIWAN | Monday, 17 Dec 2012 | Views [894]

Seeing as the recent history of Taiwan involves both the Japanese and Chinese the place is an interesting mix of both. Mandarin is the spoken language but there are the subtle Japanese gardens, lane ways between houses and heaps of Sushi and Shabu Shabu ... Read more >

Stopover in Hong Kong

HONG KONG | Sunday, 2 Dec 2012 | Views [651]
