Perhentian Islands are a small group of beautiful islands in NE Malaysia, having 2 main islands (the most touristic ones):  Perhentian Besar - dedicated to families and people seeking for some peace and quiet and Perhentian Kecil - dedicated to younger people, backpackers and those seeking for great parties on the beach :) If you want to reach these islands, go to Kota Bharu (by plane) and then go by either bus or car to Kuala Besut. From there you'll have ferries going to Perhentian…

Can you believe that Hong Kong has almost 1300 skyscrapers (buildings taller than 100m)?!  And guess what, you can see them for free from the IFC 55th floor, where you will find the Hong Kong Monetary Authority, which has an exhibition area, which tourists can visit for free (only a registration is required at the reception based on your passport).

The best way to see the Victoria Harbour is by far on a traditional sampan boat (or junk boat), the traditional Cantonese boats - the red-sail ones :) They are traversing the waters of the bay and they offer an extraordinary experience! The problem is that there are not so many of them anymore (they have been replaced by more modern boats). But this one is Aqua Luna, a traditional red-sailed Chinese JUnk Boat, probably the most famous one in HK :)

Gion is an exclusive well known geisha district in Japan and it's a must do/must see on any tourist's list in Kyoto :) But even though you're expecting to see geishas all around the streets, it is quite rare to see them. Actually, this one was the only authentic geisha that we have seen in Gion :) And trust us, she was lovely! Her makeup, her outfit, her hair, everything was perfect about her!

Matcha tea ceremony is probably the most amazing experience we had in Japan. The preparation of the powdered green matcha tea, using the bamboo tea whisk to mix the tea and the hot water is not as easy as it seems. And you have to do it properly, as there are a set of rules which you must follow accordingly :) It is a complex rithual, which comprises the Japanese essence and culture. A totally must do when in Kyoto!

We honestly don't like the big cities, especially the ones with skyscrapers all around, but central business district of Hong Kong is totally different! We love wandering those busy streets and suspended walkways in northern HK Island! And there is such a charming British influence in this area, it's a bit like travelling in time, in the earliest days of the British colonial area.

Sky is the limit when it comes to skyscrapers in Hong Kong. Having not so much territory to use, they developed on the vertical side of the city, building huge buildings - either office buildings or social blocks. Colorful and tall, they really define Hong Kong as a city, as the cantonese skyline is already famous all around the world!
