Singapore wiht JESS Kalinowsky FriendsTravel.com

Singapore

Unlike other tropical locales, you can get a mix of cosmopolitan entertainments and out-of-the-way adventures with a vacation in Singapore. After you’ve had your fill of urban nightlife, fine dining, and souvenir shopping, take a self-guided hike through the rainforest on the MacRitchie Nature Trail, or get a bird’s-eye view of the tropics by spending an afternoon on the HSBC TreeTop Walk. The world-famous Singapore Botanic Gardens offer sumptuous treats for the senses, as does Orchidville, where you can see delicate beauties in abundance. While the city offers plenty of creature comforts, the outskirts hold a treasure trove of wetland preserves, parks, farms, and wildlife sanctuaries. If you have trouble deciding between a city-focused or outdoorsy vacation, you really won’t have to choose here, as Singapore offers the best of both worlds.

Bangkok Thailand JESS Kalinowsky FriendsTravel.com

Filed under: Bangkok,Honeymoon,Phuket,Thailand — indochinawithfriendstravel @ 3:47 am

Bangkok is considered to be Asia’s top tourist destination. The city boasts some of the country’s most visited historical venues such as the Grand Palace, Wat Arun, various monuments and shopping malls. Bangkok’s most spectacular sights are located on the same compound: the Grand Palace and Wat Phra Keo, the Temple of the Emerald Buddha. The rooflines and spires are extravagant, ornamented richly and this is only one compound away from Bangkok’s Chinatown. Other sights include the National Museum (a great introduction to the county’s history and artifacts), the Red Cross Snake Farm (to watch venomous snakes being milked) and the Weekend Market near Chatuchak Park.

Indochina with JESS Kalinowsky FriendsTravel.com

Filed under: Cambodia,INDOCHINA,Laos,Myanmar formerly Burma,Singapore,Thailand,Vietnam — indochinawithfriendstravel @ 2:02 am

From a sightseeing perspective, the Buddhist temples are key because they highlight the peaceful and exotic aspects of Thailand and can help convert any culture-seeker into a confirmed visitor, not just a tourist.

Indochina, or the Indochinese peninsula, is a region in Southeast Asia. It lies roughly east of India, southwest of China. The name has its origins in the French, Indochina, as a combination of “India” and “China”, and was adopted when French colonizers in Vietnam began expanding their territory to bordering countries.

Mainland Southeast Asia contrasts with Maritime Southeast Asia, mainly through the division of largely land-based lifestyles in Indochina and the sea-based lifestyles of the Malay and Philippine archipelagos, as well as the dividing line between the Austroasiatic and Sino-Tibetan languages (spoken in Mainland Southeast Asia) and Austronesian languages (Spoken in Maritime Southeast Asia).

Historically, the countries of mainland Southeast Asia received cultural influence from China and India, but to varying degrees. Some Southeast Asian cultures, such as those of Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and Thailand are influenced mainly by the culture of India with a smaller influence from the culture of China. Others, such as Vietnam, are more heavily influenced by Chinese culture, with only minor cultural influences from India, largely via the Champa civilization that Vietnam conquered during its southward expansion.

Today, most of these countries also show pronounced Western cultural influences which began during colonialism of western countries in Southeast Asia.

In a strict sense, Indochina comprises the territory of the former French Indochina:

  • Cambodia
  • Laos
  • Vietnam

However, in a wider sense, the cultural region is better described as Mainland Southeast Asia in which sense it also includes:

  • Myanmar (formerly Burma—part of British India until 1937)
  • Singapore (also considered part of Maritime Southeast Asia if the Johor-Singapore Causeway is not taken into account)
  • Thailand (formerly Siam)
