Klook Launch In Malaysia: Our Experience Using It

Before Klook officially launched in Malaysia, I had already been using the app. It was my first visit to Siem Reap (it’s my goal to tick off all the ASEAN countries by 2020!) and something that came highly recommended was a visit to Phare, the Cambodian circus. After waking up at 4AM to catch our 6:40AM Airasia flight from Kuala Lumpur to Siem Reap, we arrived at about 9AM local time. It was a little too early to check in, so we went into town to look for coffee and also to e

Montigo Resorts Seminyak, Bali

It’s been a very long time since my last visit to Bali - about 12 years to be exact. And my last memory of it was Kuta Beach, quiet and peaceful after the unfortunate Bali bombing in 2005. Coming back to Bali again after so long was like visiting the place for the very first time. I didn’t know what to expect. Especially since this time, we would be staying in Seminyak, rather than Kuta. We were graciously hosted by Montigo Resorts Seminyak during our stay in Bali and man, wh

7 Tips To Conquer Shanghai Disneyland Like A Pro

I eat, breathe and live Disney! So on a recent trip to Shanghai, I of course jumped at the opportunity to spend a day at Disneyland. Theme park enthusiasts will likely have their own personal preference on how to best navigate this environment, but for the less experienced, I will share with you Shanghai Disneyland tips to conquer it like a pro! 1. Shanghai Disneyland Tips: Remember to bring your passport. When visiting Shanghai Disneyland, the most important thing to remembe

Marriott Marquis, Queen’s Park Bangkok

Marriott Marquis isn’t my first experience staying at one of the Marriott properties. The first time I experienced the true hospitality of Marriott was at Hua Hin Marriott Resort & Spa. Marrying the humble hospitality of Thais and the standard of service at Marriott, any stay at a Marriott in Thailand is promising. Our recent stay at Marriott Marquis at Queen’s Park Bangkok was no different. From start to end, our experience was one steeped in luxury and tranquility. Upon arr

It's the month to celebrate love and new beginnings. It is the month that loved ones gather from near and far to be together during the festive season. It is also one of the best months to start travelling in the year.

Thara Thong, Royal Orchid Sheraton Bangkok

Bangkok is one of those places where there is something for everyone - shopping, natural sites, historical monuments and religious places, entertainment and nightlife, and of course, food. Food is my primary reason for visiting any new place. But Bangkok is almost like a second home to me. We take a trip there every year without fail. Each time, the experience is unlike the last. This time, our focus was mainly on food and getting to try some of the best dishes Bangkok has to

W Hotel, Bangkok

Recently, we had the privilege of staying at W Bangkok. It was my first time stepping foot into any W properties around the world. Its reputation precedes it and I was eager to experience the hype. Its tagline is '5 Star Urban Playground' and it really felt like we had entered a playground built for adults. It did stir up feelings of excitement and high energy. It could have been from the loud music playing in the compound, but we were dancing our way into the hotel as soon a

Christmas and New Year's Eve at Montigo Resorts

It's the happiest time of the year, especially for us at foodievstheworld because we absolutely love Christmas food! Christmas set menus showcase an establishment's ability to combine tradition and modernity. That's exactly what Montigo Resorts Nongsa and Seminyak are able to do. Plus they have a stellar lineup of exciting things to look out for during this festive season. What better way to usher in the New Year than by the sea, right? Who can even resist such a beautiful pl

Qunci Villas, Lombok, Indonesia

Qunci Villas is a beachfront, boutique hotel that is perfect for couples. It is a quiet and relaxing resort that boasts three infinity pools and direct access to the pristine Senggigi Beach. The grounds and villas are a delightful mix of modern art and traditional Indonesian architecture.

Greenhost Boutique Hotel, Yogyakarta

Nowadays, when we search for hotels to stay in, while price does play a small part of our criteria, we also look at many other aspects like location, accessibility, Instagram-worthiness and to a certain extent, sustainability. Hotels have long been laden with wastage. But this is something Greenhost Boutique Hotel hopes to change. It hopes to lessen its waste and encourage healthy, sustainable practices through its establishment. From what we’ve seen so far, it has. The first

Jambuluwuk Malioboro, Yogyakarta

One of our very last stops in Yogyakarta was the famous shopping street, Malioboro. No trip to Yogyakarta is complete without at least stepping foot once onto the bustling, chaotic street where vendors peddle their mass produced goods with a smile. I love shopping in Indonesia because the people are much friendlier to deal with than the locals back home. Before our last night in Yogyakarta, we had been shying away from this district, often finding ourselves off the beaten pat

Plataran Heritage Borobudur Hotel: The Perfect Honeymoon Hotel

When you decide to marry the person you're going to spend the rest of your life with, it's a huge decision. One that shouldn't be taken lightly. It's also one that comes with a lot of happiness and certainty. With equal happiness and certainty, you sign the papers and sail off into the sunset. Or fly off to your honeymoon. For me, things were a little less conventional. I've never been a very conventional person to begin with - I always danced to my own tune. My marriage seem

Dusun Jogja Village Inn, Yogyakarta

When I was doing research on beautiful hotels in Yogyakarta, Dusun Jogja Village Inn was one of the top results. We were looking for a place that was close to the action but still quiet enough that we could enjoy a romantic getaway. In fact, I’d start off by saying this is a great hotel for couples to enjoy a retreat. One of my favourite features here at Dusun Jogja Village Inn is definitely the pool. If it’s your first time coming to Yogyakarta, you’ll know that it’s incredi

Tubotel Langkawi: A destination hotel worth travelling to

I believe I have only ever been to Langkawi three times in my life. Once as a teen with my family, once a couple years back over the Raya holidays with some close friends and the most recent trip with my fiance and best friend. Each time was a vastly different experience. As a teen, I wanted to try alcohol and my mother indulged me the privilege of underage drinking just to void the novelty. Going with friends, we wanted to have a good time and we spent most of our money o

MTree Hotel, Puchong

As far as hotels go... what would you consider a good hotel? One that has decent business facilities? Or an infinity pool? Or good food? Depending on your needs as a traveller, you might want all three or maybe even more. For business travellers, functionality and practicality take precedence over other factors. When we went to M Hotel for our staycation, we went as a group of friends hoping to enjoy our public holiday in a nice hotel and that's exactly what we did. We arrive

This was a tough list to make, with a lot of contenders, but if you're thinking of traveling there soon, I think this is worth a little read. 1.
