PHOTO: National Mosque of Malaysia (Masjid Negara) in Kuala Lumpur

I was hot, tired, and sweaty after a day of exploring the Colonial Walk along the Gombak River in central Kuala Lumpur. I could have hopped on the Metro, but the city’s historic Railway Station, with its lacy onion domes and turrets, was on the way to my hotel, so I set off on foot. The main road I was following, Jalan Kinabalu, suddenly became flooded with hundreds of men walking in the opposite direction. I dodged and wove through the oncoming masses, wondering what on earth was... The post PH...

Best orchid gardens in the world

Few flowering plant families are as diverse and geographically widespread as the orchid family, or Orchidaceae. Twenty-five thousand orchid species have been identified around the world. Some are dainty with monochromatic petals; others have big bulbous bodies and loud patterns like bright spots or stripes. Still others have the look, smell, and feel of a female bee (check out Ophrys to see for yourself) or resemble a monkey’s face (see Dracula aphrodes and Dracula marsupialis). For the best ...

Oil prices will help shape sukuk market performance in 2019: S&P - The Peninsula Qatar

Oil prices will help shape sukuk market performance in 2019: S&P - The Peninsula Qatar:S&P Global Ratings anticipates a total global sukuk issuance of $105bn-$115bn this year. The rating agency expects higher demand for funding in most GCC countries, given the reduced oil price assumptions compared with last year’s outturn of $71 for Brent .

Countries you can't visit with a DUI

Getting a DUI will make your life harder in multiple ways, but we rarely consider the impact it can have on your ability to travel abroad. Sure, the potential for injury to you and others, astronomical fines, marks on your record, and possible jail time should be big enough to deter you from drinking and driving, but to top it off, some countries may bar you from entering their borders for as many as 10 years. The last thing you want is to book your dream vacation, arrive at the country’s bor...

There’s More to Kuala Lumpur than Petronas Towers and Shopping

Kuala Lumpur, capital of the Southeast Asian country of Malaysia, has always been a “pass-through” destination for me. Either I never made it out of the airport during long layovers, or my time was limited to an overnight stay. I’d made the obligatory trek to see famous twin Petronas Towers, once the tallest skyscrapers in the world, and walk around the lovely lake and park at the foot of the towers. I’d had dinner in the Brickyards neighborhood more commonly known as Little India. And I’d spent...

Eating Everything in Kota Kinabalu

I firmly believe that Kota Kinabalu is one of the most underrated cities in Southeast Asia. Hardly anybody talks about it, but for me, it was love at first sight.

A huge reason behind this decision was the incredible food scene. I think that Kota Kinabalu is one of the best cities in the region for food, pulling even with Bangkok, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, ...

2019 isn’t even here yet in Thailand, but the Thai people already have a reason to celebrate. The country’s parliament has just voted to amend the Narcotic Act of 1979 to allow the legalization of marijuana for medical use and research — a break from decades of intolerance on the drug.
