[5D4N] Relax, Explore and EAT in Taipei, Taiwan

Before coming back to Canada, I decided to end the semester by doing a solo trip to Taiwan after the finals. My Singapore to Taipei flight was about 5 hours and I was able to book it such that it coincides with sleeping hours. This allowed me to arrive really early the next morning to go check-in and immediately start visiting this beautiful city. Continue reading “[5D4N] Relax, Explore and EAT in Taipei, Taiwan”

[5D4N] Short Crazy Break in Penang Before Finals

Just like many other exchange students, I had to take advantage of the crazy long study period before finals to travel. Weirdly enough, NTU gives us like around 10 days of studying before the first exam starts. It is definitely different from schedules back in Canada where we barely get around 3 days. Hence, with two of my friends, we decided to do a trip to Penang to enjoy the beautiful city as well as the cheap food options. Continue reading “[5D4N] Short Crazy Break in Penang Before Finals”

One of the best day trip you can do in Singapore is going to the Pulau Ubin Island for a biking expedition. The view there is just amazing.

Currently, I am doing an exchange program in Singapore, at the Nanyang Technological University. As my first trip out of the country, we decided to do a quick shopping trip to Johor Bahru. My roommate told me that the city gets empty during Chinese Near Year so going to Malaysia will allow us to find a lot of good shop and food options that are open.

Yes!! Chinese Near Year in Singapore is awesome: there is so much to do and see!! It starts on January 28th and ends 15 days later.

Here is my Top 5 attraction list of what you can do in Singapore during Chinese Near Year. Continue reading “[Exchange] What to Do Near Marina Bay for Chinese New Year in Singapore”

I am calling this trip the ultimate HK trip because I got the time to do everything I personally wanted to do and I packed each of my day to the fullest. I do want to mention though that because I arrived in the evening and had to leave really early in the morning, this post gives you an ideal full four days itinerary. Anyhow, I had so much fun in Hong Kong. Continue reading “[6D5N] Hong Kong, China: The Ultimate Trip to HK”

[1D0N] Zurich, Switzerland: My First Time in Europe

img_0125

As I was going to start my semester abroad in Singapore in January, I decided to book the longest trip to get there ever. Joke, but not really. I thought that my trip to Singapore would be the perfect opportunity to travel a bit around the world before starting the semester. I hence booked with Swiss Airline and Tiger Air such that I would get 1 Day in Zurich, Switzerland and 6 days in Hong Kong. This post is about my short, but fun 10 hours itinerary in the beautiful city that is Zurich. Fun fact: Zurich is known as the city with best quality of life from 2006 to 2008. It is also known as the most expensive city in the world.

[May 2017 Update] As I had another layover on my way back to Canada, I added a few more pictures of Spring in Zurich at the end of this post! Hope you are going to enjoy them! Continue reading “[1D0N] Zurich, Switzerland: My First Time in Europe”
