  PACKING FOR YOUR VACATION   Before you begin packing, be sure you’re aware of baggage or carry-on weight information across all modes of transportation. You’ll save on unwanted excess baggage fees, which could put a dent in your holiday budget. When you’re packing, make sure you start by placing a dryer sheet or two at the bottom, and a few more in between layers of clothes. This will ensure that your clothes stay fresh when you arrive at your destination. Also, roll your clothes, instead of folding them. Not only will that take up less space, but also you’re...

5 Amazing places to visit in Vietnam   Ever since I started travelling, I preferred my itinerary to be a good combination of tourist attractions and off-beat tracks that immerses in some me-time. To me, there is no best place or time to travel. As long as there are tickets, it is time to travel. Vietjet is currently having promotions and offers incredible fares to 24 local and international flight routes. The varying geographical features of Vietnam has belted it as one of my favourite travel destinations; so close to home and foreigners-friendly. On my many visits to Vietnam, I would never fail to indulge...

The City of Heroes   Surabaya is known locally as the "City of Heroes" because of its importance in Indonesia's fight for independence. This city is the second largest in Indonesia, but it's hardly a popular travel destination due to its lack of publicity. Most of its tourists come from Indonesia itself. Recently, the TSL team was granted the opportunity to fly to Surabaya with Air Asia, where we had the chance to explore this undiscovered city. We've compiled a list of things that you should absolutely do on your visit to this city.    1. Batu Secret Zoo   Address:...

Jeju Day 4   In Day 3 of our Jeju Trip, we explored the Jeju Folk Village Museum and trekked up Sseongsan Sunrise Peak. In the final part of our series, we continued our self-driving adventure exploring more of Jeju's natural wonders. Here's sharing my final 4 favourites!   Cheonjiyeon Falls   The Cheonjiyeon in Cheonjiyeon Falls literally means "God's pond" in Korean. Legend has it that the 7 fairies who served the King of Heaven would descend upon this waterfall to bathe in its clean waters. While swimming and soaking in the waterfall is not permitted, the trip to Cheonjiyeon is worth it if...

About Surabaya, Indonesia   When one mentions Indonesia as a travel destination, Bali is probably the first place that comes to mind. A few years ago, I had fallen hard for Bali but later discovered I wasn't the only woman in its life. I remember reading, with a sinking heart, that the global popularity of Eat, Pray, Love (no, I am not a fan) inspired hordes of tourists to Bali. I was ready to move on.  While Julia Roberts' character may have found love in Bali, I believe there is much more to do in this bustling country consisting of hundreds...

Jeju Day 2   In Day 1 of our Jeju Trip, we explored Hallim Park, Glass Castle and the O'Sulloc Tea Museum. In Day 2, we continued on our self-driving adventure and visited three more attractions. We decided to start with the mythical Mysterious Road.   Mysterious Road   Photo credits: http://gakuran.com/jeju-mysterious-road-and-totem-pole-graveyard/  As the name suggests, part of the Dokkaebi Road is “mysterious” because objects – cars included – happen to travel downwards on a road that is seemingly going upwards. We experienced this phenomenon ourselves! We turned off our car engine and let gravity do its work – the car moved without...

Bandar Seri Begawan Street Cuisine   Brunei cuisine shares many similarities with the neighbouring Malaysian states of Sabah and Sarawak, due to their shared heritage as part of Borneo. Brunei itself doesn't have a distinct food identity, and many of the dishes served in Bandar Seri Begawan can also be found in Malaysia and Thailand. Food in Bandar Seri Begawan can be found in small cafes, mid-range restaurants and fine dining establishments. There aren't many roadside stalls, but most street food is safe to eat, though tap water should always be boiled before consumption.     1. Caramelised Pineapple Cake    The...
