Some interesting bites of information today in the Singapore Straits times travel section:
- Singapore Airlines increasing flights. Bangkok is having an additional flight that departs 5:30pm. Great stuff! More options to stay later in the city and yet get back to Singapore at a decent time.
- Old medieval town in the Florentine region (most people call it Tuscany). There are numerous such hilltop villages all over Italy, France and Spain. Mostly built for the folks of the middle ages to fend off invaders. We write about them too in our newsletters! Here’s a photo of St. Emilion in the southwest of France.
- The article on Kenya is an interesting one. While it is not on the bucket list, it certainly is a very inviting adventure. At more than S$56,000 for a party of 4 (which works out to ~S$14,000 per person), it is not your “normal” annual vacation. Nice, but out of reach for most.
The article on giving your photos a good caption is an interesting one. It really depends on the message or view point that one wishes to convey. Afterall, everyone looks at the world in a different way.
While we have not been to Guangzhou, we have heard of the colonial landmarks that were left behind by the British and French in the 19th century after China lost the opium wars. We can find legacy of those times in many major cities across China – Dalian, Shanghai just to name a few.
A good read for a Sunday morning.
