18 Free and Cheap Things to Do in Singapore

Updated: 2/27/2019 | February 27, 2019 Singapore is an expensive place to visit. There’s no way around it. The small city state is priced relative to the United States, which is a lot more expensive than its neighbors! On a small stop-over trip, this isn’t a problem. But on a big trip through the region, a trip into Singapore can elicit sticker shock, and it can turn people away if they’re trying to do the area on the cheap. If you still want to visit this country, though, there are still man...

Best places for solo female travel

As much as we love travel, there’s no denying it can be tough. That goes double for solo travelers. And double that for solo female travelers. Going it alone can make a trip that much more enriching and empowering, encourage you to take risks and make new friends along the way, but choosing the right first adventure is crucial to ensure solo travel doesn’t leave a bitter taste in your mouth. For women, no matter how fearless, that probably means picking someplace safer than most, at least mod...

Best vegetarian places in Chicago

Chicago has such a long history as a meatpacking town that one of the city’s nicknames was once “hog butcher to the world.” The legacy of that era has evidently caused Chicago to remain a meat and potatoes kind of town, where it’s almost always easier to get a gyro, Polish sausage, or Italian beef than it is to get a good salad. But the city is also a world-class metropolis so of course there are tons of great vegetarian and vegan restaurants all over. For the non-meat eaters out there, or if...

Visiting Thean Hou Temple in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia…But Not for a Marriage Blessing

I first met David Hogan, Jr., the publisher of the award winning Malaysia Asia Travel Blog, during a visit to Malaysia’s Penang Island. On that occasion, he took me to one of the island’s most popular “hawker centers,” where we ate our way through outdoor food stalls that stretched for blocks. Some years later David and I reconnected in the capital city of Kuala Lumpur (KL). This time he treated me to a delicious lunch at a hole-in-the-wall restaurant located in the city’s Little India neighborh...

Penang, Malaysia, is a foodie haven

Street food is an integral part of Southeast Asian culture, and if you don’t indulge your senses over cheap, delicious meals enjoyed on little plastic stools, you haven’t really experienced the region at all. The scene in Penang, Malaysia, is unique from more popular hubs like Singapore, where street vendors have been confined to a number of organized hawker centers throughout the city, and Bangkok, which appears to be headed in that direction. The iconic vendors of the state of Penang, many ...

Your Favorite Dishes without the Hassle of Driving & Parking

When it comes to proper Indian food in KL, you can’t go wrong by pointing to the district that bears the name “Little India” in the city – Brickfields. Unfortunately for many of us who does use the car as mode of transportation, this area is also quite notorious when it comes to getting a parking spot. Not to mention about the traffic around the area during busy work week lunch hours. Legend’s Nasi Briyani Kambing + extras For this reason, even though I’ve heard about Legend’s clay pot nasi bri...

The Saturday City: Singapore

Updated: 8/8/2018 | August 8th, 2018 I’m going to be completely honest: Singapore wasn’t exactly what I thought it would be. Given its image as a hyper-clean, hyper-lawful place, I expected a very regimented, orderly, clean, and police-heavy city. I found none of that. In fact, in three days wandering the city I never once saw anything that looked like a police officer or even a security guard. Then again, laws in Singapore are harsh — very harsh — which is probably why there is no need to ke...

The re-emergence of Bangkok Chinatown – get there before the metro does

Bangkok Chinatown is one of the largest Chinatowns in the world, and it’s as old as the city itself. Chinatown is at the bottom of Rattanakosin Island, which is the historic part of the city by the Chao Phraya River. Even without the Chinese-themed stores there is a distinct feel to this area compared to central Bangkok. Part of that is because there are few high rise apartments here, and there is no metro system (yet). On my last few visits to Bangkok I’ve been spending more time in Chinato...
