South Korea

Long time did not update my blog.... Here are some photos taken when I visited South Korea to see someone. This time manage to visit some places like Tongyeong, where can go up the mountain with cablecar and hike to see the temple in the 'jungle', at Samseong po eating shashimi for lunch and hunt for more shashimi at the fish market, outing to Jinyongho Zoo with his friends and visited the Busan Tower to have a great view of the Busan city and its port.

This is the teddybear that he brought for me.

North Vietnam

This time I got the free ticket to Hanoi, it was a 6 days 5 nights trip. Overall it is very exciting and fun. But the air in Hanoi is very polluted.

On the first day I arrived in Hanoi, I went to the Hoan Kiem Lake, located at the Old Quarters and later went for the water puppet show. Too bad that the puppet show is in Vietnamase. At the Old Quarters, it is a nice place for shopping but need to bargain hard for best price.

The next day I travel Northeast to Halong Bay the UNESCO heritage. It was very foggy when the time I reach there. Although it was foggy but it do has the beauty of it.

After Halong Bay, I went back to Hanoi and took the night train to Lao Cai, boarder to Yunnan, China. In the early morning went to Sapa. Sapa is located at the Northwest of Vietnam. That was the best part of my whole trip. In Sapa there are many minority ethnic like Black Hmong, Red Dzao, Dzay etc. To see the life style of those minority ethnic is treaking to their villages. The weather during this time is very cooling so it is very nice to treak for about 3-4 hours without feeling tired. For the two days that I spent in Sapa, I went to Cat Cat, Lao Chai and Ta Van. In Ta Van village they do provide homestay for those who want to have the experience of a village life for the Dzao minority ethnic. Other than these 3 villages, there are many other villages, just that time do not allowed me to trek around those villages. Hope that one day can go back and trek all the villages around Sapa and explore the Northwest Vietnam, where most of the minority ethnic located, like White Thai, Black Thai, Flower Hmong, Strip Hmong, Black Homng, Red Dzao, Dzay etc......

New Year............

This year is very special to me, as it was begin in Borobudur & Dieng Plateau, Jave, Indonesia. First time celebrating New Year out of Malaysia, with a total different celebration, a slience celebration and full of traditional dances. This time I went to Solo, Java, Indonesia again with my family. The travelling itenery was slightly different from my previous one, but the main attraction ---- Candi Borobudur is a must!

For this time, I stay in Hotel Manohara for 3D2N, then move to Dieng Plateau; which is a nice and cool place to visit, as the famous tourist spot are Telaga Warna, Kawah Sikidang, Kompleks Ajunan.... These can cover in 2 hours. But we spend there for about 3 hours. Later move down back to Wonobusno and then to Jogja.

In Jogja, spend about 4D3N there, visited Kraton (Palace of Jogja) then headed to Taman Sari and later to Gemuk pasir. The most disappointed one is gemuk pasir CHEATED by the pamplet. The pamplet show it like in desert but in reality its SUCKS!!!! Overall I'm very happy with the trip especially the Dieng Plateau....... nice view, cool weather.
