Mother Temple Basakih in Bali, Indonesia

Bali Temple Run (2 of 2): Pura Ulun Danu Batur, Besakih and Rice Paddies

The sixth stop in our SEA by Train vacation in Indonesia, Ubud. With the “my must-visit” temples in Ubud checked off of my list from the first half of the tour (well, I also wanted to see Goa Gajah); the second half of the day takes us to the two most important temples in all of Bali, Besakih and Pura […]

Borobudur Temple: Why You Should See It at Sunrise

We were able to haggle for a lower rate of IDR 200,000 from the original 400,000. It’s around a two-hour […]

Tips, Things To Do and Places To See in The Heritage Town of Vigan

It was through Marilou Diaz-Abaya’s Jose Rizal that I learned of Vigan (thanks to the Department of Education for making it a requisite for all high school students to see the film). Since then I’ve always wanted to visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site and feel that old-world romance that Vigan reverberates with. Unleash the […]
