Hong Kong Utopia

Hong Kong is a very busy and crowded city, however I found this Utopia in Diamond Hill. Due to a lunch invitation, finally I have a chance to go there for a very lovely vegetarian meal.

This Utopia is called “Chi Lin Nunnery”, it is a Buddhist temple in the middle of the city.  I was so amazed I can find this peaceful and quiet place surrounded by uncountable tall concrete buildings in my hometown, world leading financial centre Hong Kong.

Travel Advises – Melbourne

I was living in Melbourne, the best city in the world in 2011. Melbourne is a very beautiful place full of sunshine, beaches, breeze, animals , muscle, parties and love. If you are going to Melbourne, make sure you have sufficient time for you to have a fun and relaxing holiday. If  you are interested in travelling, feel free to contact me for quotation or itineraries.

Must do/go:

  • Flinders street – the signature historical train station, and it is in the heart of Melbourne
  • St. Kilda beach – beautiful beach, you may find small penguin underneath the rocks. You may as well go to the Luna Park in St. Kilda. If you are driving, you can drive along the beach/highway to go to another famous beach called Brighton Beach. There are many unique and beautifully painted boat houses on the beach. Nice cafe and restaurant along the shores.
  • Great Ocean Road – must go sightseeing place, amazing Apollo Bay
  • Dandenong mountain – amazing mountain with nice view, you won’t regret this, try to spend some quality time and try to concentrate on the sky for shooting stars.
  • Philip Island – 2 hours drive from the city, you can find little cute group of penguins from there 🙂
  • Mornington – 1 hour drive from the city, if you are going during the right reason, you can go pick some fresh cherries or strawberries.
  • Cuisine – feel free to try different national cuisine, most of them are very traditional and run by immigrants, and food is really tasty
  • Free City Tour- try to find the tram from Flinders Street  for the free city ride

p.s. If you have more than 2 weeks travel time, try to take some weekend tour to different city or country side. It takes 9 hours to drive to Adelaide beautiful city and 11 hours drive to lively busy Sydney 🙂

As always, it is hard to name all of them, feel free to drop a line if I have missed out any good ones. If you are interested in travelling to Australia or any other places in the world, you can drop me a line at ticktechtold@hotmail.com or leave a comment below, I am able to provide reasonable travel packages, flight ticket or hotels. Thank you very much.

Travel Advices – Singapore

Posted: 6 January, 2012 by Kelly Chan in Uncategorized

As a Hong Kong girl, it only takes me 4 hours to fly to Singapore and it is always a good place for us to have a trip there 🙂

Been staying there for a while, I think I can give a short travel advices about Singapore from my own experience. If you are interested, please contact me for more information 🙂

Must do/go:

  • Marina bay sands top floor swimming pool – it is a edgeless swimming pool, check my experience video here            Highest Swimming Pool in The World         
  • National Museum of Singapore – if you like museums, you will definitely like this good one
  • Clake Quay for few nice drinks – must try “Singapore Sling” local signature cocktail
  • Lau Pa Sat – a very historic building turning into a food court kind, with really nice food, it is located in the city
  • Sentosa – artificial beach, worth trying their games and activities including “segway!”
  • Universal Studio – must try both of their highest ride 🙂
  • Chinatown – quite tasty Chinese food over there, must try “bakuteh” (herbal soup with pork rib)
  • Orchard road – lots of lots of big brands and very nice street decoration, must try the very traditional ice-cream sandwich

Hotel (from my own experience):

  • Marina bay sands – very model and huge hotel with big lobby and breakfast buffet that gives you a wow, room is very typical, staff is nice but somehow hard for them to manage so many rooms and guests, room service time varies. Highly recommend you to take taxi all the time if you are staying here.
  • Grand Hyatt (in Orchard Road) – in the heart of Singapore, extremely crowded entrance, very easy to access to anywhere, you will like it if you love shopping. It has nice service, nice room. You feel different staying in such a nice hotel in a jam packed crowded heart of Singapore
  • Mandarin Oriental – hotel with reputation by name, very good service, attitude and elegant hotel room. You feel welcoming by all the small details from the hotel. 15 mins walk to City Hall MRT, reasonable price for such a complete hotel experience

p.s. If you are staying in Singapore for more than a week time, I highly recommend you to join some weekend tours to go to Malacca in Malaysia or Bintan in Indonesia.

It is hard to name all of them, please feel free to leave a comment or drop me a line at ticktechtold@hotmail.com for more information, price quotation or itinerary. I am able to provide a discounted price for packages, flight ticket, hotel rooms. Thank you very much.

Check out my Malaysia tour in Muar and Malacca

Posted: 4 December, 2011 by Kelly Chan in Kelly

Muar is a small town in Malaysia. It is really quiet and spacious compare to Singapore. The place is really natural and historic. Lots of temples and nice local food. I stayed there for 3 days I enjoyed it very much. The main language in Malaysia is of course Malay, I had really good time learning few fun Malay words and catch up with my old friends that I met back in Melbourne.

Malacca is more like a tourist place. It has really strong history behind about before and after war. There are red houses built by Holland. There are English street names. There are food that you cannot find elsewhere. Overall it’s a really fun place to visit despit the heat 😛
