A little piece of Japan in California ☀
While walking round Los Angeles downtown I found the Japanese Village Plaza that is located at 335 E. 2nd Street in Downtown Los Angeles and is easily accessible from Downtown.
The plaza has a Japanese style architecture and offers a unique shopping and dining experience in a relaxing, comfortable atmosphere.

Japanese Village Plaza is a free attraction that is definitely worth visiting if you’re interested in Japanese culture or just want to experience something new.

Halal meatballs at Pattaya!
Located at the basement, you’ll find some halal stalls located near the entrance. We were particularly excited with the fried meats soaked in the thai chili sauce.
One stick is at 10 baht. You need to change your money to a card (located near the entrance) to make a purchase at this food court. We were so happy with our goodies and had best time eating this as it is quite hard to find the halal version of this.

Roller-coaster 🎢 by the sea 🌊
Pacific Park is a great spot to visit if you’re looking for fun attractions and games. The best way to get there is by car or taxi, but I took a metro and then walked over there.
Once you arrive, you can walk and get lost through the park and enjoy the different rides and games available. There are a dozen rides available, including the Pacific Wheel, West Coaster, Sea Dragon, Shark Frenzy, Pacific Plunge, and Inkies Scrambler.
You’ll also have the chance to see children playing and enjoying themselves on the different rides. The prices for different rides range from $5-12 if I'm not wrong. The atmosphere is laid-back and casual full of families and couples, making it the perfect spot to relax and enjoy some fun.
After writing this I feel like a pretzel 🥨

Coolest fishing pier in San Diego 🎣
Oceanside is a beautiful spot to visit if you’re looking for stunning sea views and plenty of activities. The best way to get there is by car or taxi, some busses goes there but isn't very easy in my opinion.
Once you arrive, you can just walk and get yourself lost along the beach and enjoy the view of the blue sea and blue sky.
You’ll also have the chance to try out some fun activities like surfing at the surf school or walking across the crazy bridge, haha I don't even know what shape or purpuse it has but is cool . The atmosphere is laid-back and casual, making it the perfect spot to relax and enjoy some nature, the sea and the people around.

Visiting Most iconic rock arc in the World
The Arch of Cabo San Lucas is one of the most iconic landmarks in Mexico. It’s located at the southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula and is accessible by boat.
The best way to get there is by renting a boat or taking a tour,is not expensive and some even include drinks. Some people like to take it in the afternoon just before the sunset, but I think anytime is fine. I highly recommend taking a sunset sailing tour with Cabo Sailing. The weather was sunny and warm and the views were breathtaking.
The Arch is a natural rock formation that was created by the sea and wind over thousands of years.
It's truly a sight to behold and one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen.

My favorite place in Buda side of Budapest!
The Fisherman’s Bastion is one of the most beautiful places in Budapest. It’s located on the Buda side of the city and offers a stunning view of the Danube River and the Pest side of the city. The best way to get there is by taking the funicular from the Chain Bridge. The view from the top is breathtaking and it’s not as crowded as other tourist attractions in Budapest.
I highly recommend visiting this place if you’re ever in Budapest, visit during the weekdays for less people and also in the afternoon so you can catch the golden hour 🌇
There are some shops around to get water and restaurants to get some drinks and good local food

Kedonganan Beach, Bali
Kedonganan Beach is nothing special with lots of fishing boats and quite a bit of rubbish near the Pier.
It is, however, worth visiting as it is the location of the Kedonganan Fish Market with so many under cover stalls selling so many varieties of fresh seafood.
Kedonganan fish market is famously known as Pasar ikan tradisional kedonganan or jimbaran fish market due to its near by to the famous seafood dining bay. If you come early in the morning, you can see lots of fishermen and boat landing area in the beach in kedonganan's village.
The market opens right after the break of dawn, and the bustling scene continues throughout the day, with countless pick-up trucks with boxes ready to ship out their fresh seafood to hotels and restaurants, while local fishing boats land and unload their catches, greeted by smaller vendors on the sand.
Over all, kedonganan fish market is a good place to buy fresh seafood with an affordable price.

Suluban Beach, Bali
Suluban beach, beautiful white sandy beach located at Uluwatu, South Bali. It's a hidden beach so you need to go down the stairs to get the beach. Beware of monkey during going down. Right after you get the beach, you'll find a very beautiful beach with corals.
Fantastic views from above. However just because you see people surfing does not mean its safe. . The wave is good to surf and the water looks like crystal .#wecreate #beachlife #mytripvlog #urbanexplorer #tripblazers #awesomepic #summervacation #celebratewithtrip #passionpassport #bali
Enjoy your Starbucks with a view!
￼A great place for people watching, while drinking your coffee. This two-storey Starbucks offers a nice view overlooking the beach. The first level is air conditioned whereas the 2nd level is open-air. There is a roof so you are protected from the sun.
Blessed for the wind during the hot weather and it is such a nice atmosphere to unwind and relax with the food and beverages.
Do not be confused with another Starbucks store in the mall. It is just a walking distance. If you love coconut, do eat their coconut cake! Fresh coconut meat in it! I always have ‘em whenever I’m in Thailand.

Floating City: Venice 🇮🇹
Venice is a kind of beautiful Italian destination - with its long canals, narrow alleys and an interesting history, you’ll always find a lot to do & see..Let’s help you spoilt with choices all the best things to do in Venice whilst you’re there. I have visited several sights in Venice and would like to share them with you!
1) St Mark’s Basilica - It’s worth exploring the most famous church St Mark’s Basilica.
2.) Piazza San Marco- Buzzing ‘must-see’ spot, Piazza San Marco is one of the most famous square to visit in Venice
3.) Rialto Bridge- The oldest bridge that crosses the Grand Canal in Venice, the Rialto Bridge and surroundings is a bucket list if you have wish to stroll around this great city.
4.) Grand Canal-It’s packed with boats, gondolas and a heap of water taxis. Personally, I’d recommend either taking a short tour by gondola.
5.) Doge’s Palace-This beautiful Palace has a long history within the Venetian empire; Inside you will see the most grand rooms and fine art that’s centuries old.
If you have time I would suggest to visit near by islands; Murano, Burano, and Torcello are the Venetian Lagoon's three most visited and unique islands.

Feels like a private beach !
In the top right end of Koh Larn, lies a small beach called Ta Yai Beach. It was my first time going there and it’s pleasantly nice! Quiet and zen, there’s enough space to enjoy the sun, sand and the sea.
But beware of your food, dogs may come and settled in front of you - hoping you will give them some 😅 But they are not vicious dogs lah so if you ignore them, they will go away 😎
There are some big rocks at the 2 ends of the beach where the locals take photo for the gram! There is also a swing nearby to take some photo op as well. Overall, it is a nice place to unwind!
