Hong Kong 2013

Hubby brought his parents and I to Hong Kong in 2013. His sister joined us as well.

It was a fun trip, and we managed to explore some parts of Hong Kong which we missed out previously.

We finally made up our mind to eat the crab ( with beer) on the last night. 🙂

And I finally tasted Tim Ho Wan.

Sri Lanka

Like it or not, when the big boys speak, others will listen. So even though I am not a 100% docile animal, when Lonely Planet announce Sri Lanka as the Destination for 2013, I can’t help but put it in my travel list 2013.

Stories from travellers made me drool with envy. I can’t wait to snap away all the beautiful nature this jewel island can offer. *smile*

The trouble with package tours… …

Life is short. Money is limited. All fellow travellers with unsatiable wanderlust will agree with these two statements.

Library shelves are full to the brim with all the travel books about exciting destinations, constantly reminding me that there are still another 100, 500 or even 1001 trips I have to conquer before my death comes.

So you can imagine how fuming mad I was when for two consecutive years, the same travel agency cancelled my trip to Turkey because there weren’t enough people to form the tour group.

This is the trouble with a less-than-popular destination with a small travel agency. Even the alternatives the small agency has are quite pathetic.

For my husband and I, we now feel safer to go for 2-to-go tour or we settle our own flights and get local land tour to help us with accommodation and tour.

Now, I have to wait till end of next week to confirm my trip in June. There are several options but I still hope ultimately I can conquer Turkey this year.

Day 1 – Cambodia

This is another 2-to-go tour, which we got from Groupon. Both of us had a driver and a tour guide.

Oh my, I must not forget to warn you that you have to be mentally prepared before visiting Cambodia. Their sorching sun (of course the Sun belongs to all of us) and the overwhelming engulfing heat are … somewhat dangerous. There were times I found it difficult to breath normally because of the heat.

These are the places we visited:

– Angkor Thom – Bayon
