Consolidated post for our 12 days trip to New Zealand from North Island to South Island. We will be covering the important information of New Zealand from weather to currency. Including things that we will need to take note of before arrival eg, what can we bring and what not to. Upon arrival, our accommodation, transportation and what to see and do.
HARUKAS 300 observatory is the MUST visit place when in Osaka, It is best known for its sunset and night view. Situated at the Osaka city Abeno ward, Abeno Harukas open in March 2014, also known as the tallest skyscraper in Japan. Standing tall at a height of 300m, the building consists of a department store, restaurants, museum, hotel and offices. (more…)
The location of this hotel is highly recommended if you are planning to travel out of Osaka for a day trip or a stopover. Otherwise, staying in Umeda or Namba area will be a better choice.
For me, I find this hotel really convenient as it is just above the train station, and there are a lot of food available till late.
My first flight with Thai Airways was pleasant. We bought the ticket for quite a reasonable price, which requires a transit at Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport. We enjoyed our transit time at the clean and spacious airport. The flight timing to Osaka and Tokyo was better if we were to compare it with Singapore Airlines, even after taking into consideration the transit time.
A day in Barcelona City and wanted to squeeze in some of the popular attractions to visit but couldn’t decide where to go? Here are some of the options to spend your day. We visited the famous Park Guell by Antoni Gaudi in the morning, after that to the Gothic Quarter and immerse ourselves in the ancient building around that area. Can have a shopping spree at the Calle Portal de L’Angel which is near to the Las Rambla.
The MUST eat pastel de nata/egg tart in Portugal.
Why? The reason to eat here is simple as this is the pastry restaurant, which holds the original receipt from Mosteiro dos Jerónimos, the originator for pastel de nata. If you are to compare the pastel de nata to the others selling along the streets in Lisbon, you will know that there is a real difference between the original and the “fake”. ** something is missing, and this is why it makes this egg tart so invincible .**
For our last day in Portugal, we decided to spend the day at Sintra, a little town near Lisbon. To visit some of the must-go attractions there. I will be covering the transportation, place of interests like the Moorish castle, Pena Palace, Monserrate Palace and our last stop to the Cabo da Roca.
