After a fun-filled day with lots of snorkeling on the Super Ultimate Tour, I thought it was time to take a break from snorkeling and enjoy more of the beaches Coron had to offer. And so I booked the Island Escapade Tour on my second full day in Coron, Palawan.

Wanting to try something new and with not much time to plan, I found myself alone in Coron, in the Filipino province of Palawan in July. I had almost a week in Coron but never knowing what would come in the following days, I took up the most comprehensive of the tours on the first day, the Super Ultimate Tour.

Langkawi, the Jewel of Kedah. Facing the Andaman sea, lined by white sandy beaches, mountains rising steep within. At just over an hour from Singapore or Kuala Lumpur, Langkawi Island is an great choice for a short beach & nature getaway.

Visiting Canggu in Bali? 10 Things You Shouldn’t Miss

Aaron/ April 23, 2017/ Southeast Asia/ 4 comments

Canggu’s definitely not for everyone. Being some distance from popular attractions (other than Tanah Lot), and without the most exciting nightlife, it is understandably an often overlooked region in Bali. Still, many who come swear by it, and end up staying for weeks or even months. There’re plenty of gems in this small space, well within walking distance, while at the same time without the crazy crowds of Ubud or Kuta – if you look in the right places.   What brought
