Much has been said about escaping to the capital of Finland, Helsinki to be soaked in the atmosphere of Christmas. Just before we headed back home, we had the opportunity to explore Helsinki city and the Christmas market.
Come winter season, there are only few hours of daylight and it is not surprising to see most of the pictures taken were dark. Continue reading “Finland Travelogue – (Part 7): Helsinki City and Christmas Market”
Ensconced in the lush tropical hillside overlooking Patong Beach and the sparkling Andaman Sea, MAI HOUSE Patong Hill’s exotic 79 rooms offer peace and tranquility to every guest.
In this trip to Phuket, our family planned to “travel less and enjoy more”. We were not keen to do much walking along the streets (as we have been to Phuket before) and wanted a hotel that is away from the hustle and bustle of Patong streets. It is no wonder then that MAI HOUSE Patong Hill become the accommodation of choice for us. Continue reading “Phuket Luxury Hotel Stay @ MAI HOUSE Patong Hill”

We love Perth. So much so that we don’t think we will get bored going back again. We can’t be more thankful to settle on Perth in our travel plans as it takes just a mere 5 hours flight for us to experience a totally different culture.

A visit to SantaPark offers an exciting glimpse into the secret going on of Santa’s elves at the Elf School.

Fishing takes place all year round, even in winter. Ice fishing is actually a lot of fun, because we can move freely on the surface of rivers and lakes when they are frozen.
After the exhilarating reindeer and husky sleigh rides, our guide brought us to experience ice fishing. Continue reading “Finland Travelogue – (Part 4): Ice Fishing with Arctic Circle Snowmobile Park in Lapland”
Our next itinerary is going to enjoy the company of arctic animals where we will visit local reindeer farms and husky kennels and take on a fascinating ride on a sleigh.
