It’s still hard to believe that I had the opportunity to travel to Dubai. We spent about 5 days exploring the magnificent city and everything it had to offered – or at least I tried to cover everything. To help us to do that, we invested in the Dubai City Sightseeing Hop-On/Hop-Off Bus Tour. We decided to go with the 7-day ticket, and it not only helped us see many different things, but also helped with transportation when we wanted to get from point A to point B. Most of my recommendations are covered by the bus tour, so I highly suggest looking into it, especially if you will not be renting a car.

Named as the top tourist destination city in the world, Bangkok welcomes more than 20 million visitors each year. People are attracted to the diversity the city has to offers.

With the official religion of Thailand being Buddhism, and approximately 97% of the population identifying as Buddhists, it’s not too surprising to learn that there are over 30,000 temples in the country. Bangkok specifically is home to a little over 400 of these temples. Each one is unique and has its own characteristics and personality.Continue reading “Top 3 Temples to Visit in Bangkok”
If you would have asked me if I would be visiting Vietnam in my lifetime, I’m sure my answer would be along the lines of “I don’t know…maybe one day.” But life has a funny way of throwing surprises our way – whether good or bad. Thankfully, it was a good surprise to see that Vietnam was on our cruise itinerary.
