Kayaking towards the jungle in Cheow Lan Lake: our experience

Our experience kayaking in Cheow Lan Lake inside Khao Sok National Park, is one of the best travel memories I have of my peregrinations not only in Thailand but around the whole world. I've been travelling almost non-stop for the last 6 years, and after having seen so many different places I rarely remain impressed of something. But Cheow Lan Lake seriously stole my soul and is now permanently added to my mental shortlist of natural wonders. It was like a natural Dolby Surround System hitting my sensory organs wit ...

Visiting Boh tea plantation and a not to be missed hike in Cameron Highlands

On our day 2 of Cameron Highlands we went hiking through the jungle reaching the top of the scenic Gunung Brinchang, we penetrated inside the fairyland of the enchanted mossy forest, and got lost and hungry in the endless labyrinth of the BOH tea plantations. An adventure day full of good vibes and magnificent landscapes as far as our eyes could see.

Wildlife spotting and guided kayak tour in Cheow Lan Lake: our experience

After 2 days passed in Kao Shok National Park, with the second one spent mostly kayaking in Cheow Lan Lake, in a continuous amazement, before exploring a local cave and some of the jungle, it was time to welcome our last day in this unforgettable settings. Sunrise call for Wildlife spotting in Cheow Lan Lake The still but animated jungle offering shelter to many animal species was awakening to another day of life.

Exploring Tanah Rata and its tea plantations in Cameron Highlands

 “Cameron Highlands” is the most recommended destination on the lips of the busy people of Kuala Lumpur as well as the favorite weekend getaway for the more chilled citizens of artsy Penang. Here, the local tourists come to experience spring, at an average temperature of 20 degrees, but also to balance their dusty buzzing city life with the country side of the ever green rolling hills, the birth land of strawberries, flower farms, and famous tea estates. The place was discovered during British occupation in ...

Rinjani trekking: how to choose a reliable travel company

Travel Sustainability and Flight emissions

One life = One flight. Yes, that' not a mistake, if the world would be a fair place, and everybody could use its resources sustainably and equally divided among its population, utopia that we are far away from reaching, we could fly only once in our whole life.Unfortunately I couldn't locate the source of this affirmation, but what we know for sure is that of all the transportation options available, the airplane is the most pollutant mean at our disposal.
