About three fourths of Bhutan’s population follows Buddhism.
Bhutan – Introduction
Welcome to Bhutan!
December on my blog is going to be all about this mysterious country. 🙂
Malaysia – For Ladies
Special areas “only for women” are also in Malaysia.
Malaysia – Petronas Twin Towers KL
Petronas Towers are famous twin skyscrapers in Kuala Lumpur.
For a few years, it was the tallest building in the world.
I’m not a fan of skyscrapers, but if you are – visit the Petronas Towers;
they’re interesting buildings.
It almost felt to me, that not visiting Petronas Twin Towers is like not being in Kuala Lumpur at all…
China – Dogs
Cute dogs can be found the streets in China. 🙂
China – Cuisine
I hope nobody will be upset by this, but that’s a well known joke about Chinese cuisine…
It says that a table is the only thing with 4 legs that Chinese don’t eat.
Well, there are also other countries where people eat many “strange things”.
Anyway, for me, more interesting were some flavours…
The girl in the picture is eating ice cream that tastes like green pea,
and there are even green peas inside…
In China, I bought, by accident (!), green peas and kidney beans ice creams;
they both had beans inside;
I was really disappointed by my mistake…
Sri Lanka – Polonnaruwa
The Ancient City of Polonnaruwa is listed as a World Heritage Site,
and there are many good ruins, I mean reasons, for it. 😉
Sri Lanka – Horton Plains National Park
Horton Plains National Park is a lovely area with rich flora and fauna.
It’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
When I think about Sri Lanka in general, the Horton Plains National Park somehow doesn’t fit to my image; of course it’s part of sri Lanka, but also something that you may not called as “Sri Lankan”. 😉
And, in the Horton, you’ll find a toilet with such a nice view;
ok a bit cloudy…
and yes, no glasses in this windows. 😉
Sri Lanka – Climate
Sri Lanka has a tropical climate, with an average temperature of about 30C;however, there are some significant differences between different parts of the island.
Singapore – Cycling
Singapore has its own special rules,
e.g., chewing gum was forbidden in Singapore, but later some exceptions were added.
Cycling is allowed, but as you see, not everywhere.
Singapore – Still Growing
In Singapore, you’ll see buildings under contraction,
the city is still growing and getting more and more modern.
Singapore – Modern City
I heard someone comparing Singapore with New York,
but you cannot really compare them.
New York is rather old, Singapore is rather new; they are different.
Do you agree?
Singapore – Religion
Singapore is also quite mixed when we talk about religion.
You’ll meet here people who practise Buddhism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Taoism, folk religion etc.; plus many non-religious people.
And, I’ve never heard about any “religious problems” in Singapore… Have you?
Singapore – International Country
Singapore is a very mixed, “international” country,
where you can find “a bit of everything”.
Laos – Night Markets and Souvenirs
Night Markets are very common in Asia.
You can find there delicious food and souvenirs;
of course, you don’t have to buy there anything and just enjoy the place. 🙂
Laos – Luang Prabang
Luang Prabang and its vicinity is an area in Laos that you should really visit!
The ancient town of Luang Prabang is a UNESCO World Heritage Site;
it’s a tourist place, but also quite real, at least that was my impression a few years ago.
You can also enjoy Mekong River and nearby mountains.
Laos – Not Only Drugs in Golden Triangle
The Asian Golden Triangle, i.e., area in Laos, Myanmar and Thailand is mostly known from drugs.
But there is rather a different reason why I don’t recommend people to visit it.
Look at this sad picture; in Laos Golden Triangle you can easily buy alcohol bottles with animals inside! There are e.g., snakes, scorpions or other also protected animals!
I’m showing you this picture to be aware of this;
because it’s a very negative thing!
I’ll continue the topic tomorrow.
Laos – Next Thailand?
While visiting Laos, I somehow got an impression that in a few years, Laos will be like Thailand,
or even they want to be like Thailand, i.e., a very popular tourist destination.
Laos – Human Rights
Apparently, not respecting human rights is still a big issue in Laos…
I only heard about it, but didn’t experience it.
Laos – Location
Laos is a landlocked country in Southeast Asia.
Laos is bordered by China, Cambodia, Myanmar (Burma), Vietnam and Thailand.
