MY ASIAN TRAVELS

A swift but fun travel from Japan to Brunei. Take a look at the few photos below. Enjoy lah!

This is in downtown Tokyo, a stone’s throw distant from the Japanese Diet and the Imperial Palace. This must be the cleanest place I’ve been to. Not a trash on the road did I see when I went around.

Yokohama is like the Paris of Japan. It’s very charming. Not a lot of skyscrapers, only a number of old Eurasian buildings. The photo was taken at a hilltop park in one of Tokyo’s ‘ku’ or wards.

Formerly Saigon, Ho Chi Minh has more motorcycles more than cars. Traffic was chaotic. The city reminds me of old Manila – charming but a bit disorderly. Some Vietnamese I met were shy.

UNESCO Heritage Site

This is Ayutthaya, a UNESCO Heritage site in Thailand. The site is within the centuries-old city of Ayutthaya. There were a number of souvenir shops around, and you’d feel happy to see elephants as you hop from one park to another. Historic and fun place it is.

In the background is the Marina Bay Sands building. The place is near the Esplanade and Merlion Park, separated only by the narrow river.

This is at one of the many small stops in Jakarta’s mini-park. Quite the same with former Nayong Pilipino heritage park.
