Penang, A UNESCO world heritage site
#penang #UNESCO #heritage #musuem #peranakan
Penang is a popular tourists destination especially if you arrive by cruise from Singapore, this gives you a 1 day exploration tour around the jetty snd some museum.
One place I recommend to go upon reaching penang jetty is the Chew Jetty which is a unesco world site, you will still be able to see many of these old houses built on stilts over waters. Thereafter, head to the Pinang Peranankan Mansion located at 29, Church St, Georgetown, 10200 George Town, Penang, Malaysia just a short walk from Chew Jetty. This cost approximately 7/8 SGD per person, but they have a wide variety of exhibits covering 2 floors worth of antiques and history.

Heading to Paris for a holiday? You holiday is not complete especially if you never visited the lourve, as this is one of the world most famous musuem, with popular art pieces that costs 100 over thousands worth on display. You will also notice, when you arrive here the queue to the musuem is insanely long, so I do recommend you to head there early as we took more than 2 hours to queue.
The lourve requires an entrance ticket which cost you less than 20 euros, you will be able to see fa out painting like the Mona Lisa, Virgin on the rocks, the pastoral concert and even sculptures like Venus De Milo, the winged victory of samothrace and many more. Its a huge nusuem, so do have at least an hour half or 2 catered here.
It will be a dream destination if I can head to Paris again, and this time a solo travel since the last time was with my parents about 5 years ago.

The Jewish memorial, Berlin Wall & BODE
Germany has several cities where I find the most interesting place to visit is in Berlin. Back in secondary school days, my teacher used to talk about the Berlin Wall and what it does but I've never imagine how it will excatly look like first hand until I went to the original Berlin Wall itself. This is the very Wall that actually separated separated divided Berlin from East Germany in 1961 to 1989.
There is also the Jewish memorial that you can visit, where this was once the mass murder of Jews. This is like a memorial for them and the area here is rather peaceful and quiet.
Lastly the BODE Mueusm where you will find collection of paintings from the sculpture collection and also the Museum of Byzantine Art and the Munzkabinett. There is an entrance fee charge of 10 pounds per person to visit this musuem.

The Mercedes Museum In Germany
There are alot of European branded cars made in Germany like the main fews are BMW, Audi, Volkswagen and Mercedes Benz.
As I'm a car fanatic, the mecerdes benz Museum is a bucketlists for me, as this musuem showcases Mercedes benz even before we were born. From the very 1st man made gas powered car in the 1800s and also the very 1st Mercedes sports car called the SL60 AMG to even the very first Mercedes benz car where doors open upwards.
This musuem covers more than 15,000 square metres with at least more than 100 over vehicles on showcase where you are able to learn the history and works behind the vehicles.
There is a small entrance fee roughly about 10 - 15 pounds, but this is definitely an educational tour and understanding how cars were once made solely for human transportation.

Growing with technology In Singapore
National Museum Of Singapore has several exhibition on showcase. One pop up showcase which is also very popular with parents and kids is the showcase of technology changes in our lives.
Many of us who are born in 1970s-1990s finds this showcase a very memorable one. It shows where how life was simple when it comes to the barber, or using the uncoloured computer, phone and tvs. The very simple yet popular commercial on TV screens with its familiar soundtracks. Also the showcase also exhibits what Singapore used to have but its now not seen anymore. Like the spinning dail up payphone, or the kind of cosy coffeehouse, the kind of houses where our grandparents used to stay in, or even the kind of cameras we use to have and how it was traditional developed.
This exhibits allows our kids born in the recent generation to understand how simple life was before technology came in. A very much historic cultural learning experience.
