    Laksa Johor

    Laksa Johor

    Laksa Johor differs from its counterparts of a similar name due to the usage of spaghetti in its creation. This uniqueness is accentuated by the nature of its gravy component, which strongly resembles curry. Each bite floods your taste buds with creamy flavours, courtesy of the coconut milk, herbs and spices—like lemongrass and galangal—that are used to construct this beautiful dish.

    Bukit Bintang

    Bukit Bintang is the part of Kuala Lumpur which literally never sleeps–so do not be surprised if you find yourself spending most of your time in Kuala Lumpur here! From the timeless dining favourites in Jalan Alor to the bustling nightlife of Changkat Bukit Bintang, the area is always radiant with offerings around the clock, and is often considered to be the heart of the city.

  • Adobo

    Adobo

    Adobo is arguably the national dish and favourite comfort food of the Philippines. Usually featuring chicken as a main ingredient, preparing adobo requires the meat component to be marinated in a combination of soy sauce, vinegar and garlic for a few hours, before being cooked in the very same marinade. Bay leaves and black pepper are also common ingredients of this flavourful affair.

  • Chiang Mai Night Bazaar

    Chiang Mai Night Bazaar

    If bargaining for prices gives you a thrill of sorts, the Chiang Mai Night Bazaar will leave you bubbling with excitement. This night market is known for selling branded items at incredibly low prices, and is also a go-to place for souvenirs. It is located nearby two other night markets, namely, the Kalare Night Bazaar and Asunarm Markets.

  • Assam Laksa

    Assam Laksa

    Assam laksa tantalizes with its refreshingly sour and spicy notes, distinguishing it from its curry-based and creamier counterparts. Rice noodles sit in its flavourful soup that's derived from fish, tamarind, belacan (shrimp paste), mint and Vietnamese mint leaves, buds of wild ginger, haeko (a sweeter prawn paste) and lemongrass, amongst others.

  • Kyaiktiyo Pagoda

    Kyaiktiyo Pagoda

    The Kyaiktiyo Pagoda monument is unique due to its position on a boulder that sits on the edge of a cliff at roughly 1,100 metres above sea level. This is why it is also known by locals as the ‘Golden Rock Pagoda’. It is also famous for being a host–like many other temples in Myanmar–of a hair relic that is reportedly derived from Buddha Gautama himself.

  • Kao Pad

    Kao Pad

    Considered as one of the most popular types of fried rice in the world, kao pad is a fairly simple dish that has a special place in the hearts of Thai people. It consists of rice that is stir-fried with pieces of meat and various seasonings, along with additional ingredients like eggs and onions. Thai Jasmine rice is normally used for this purpose, giving it an enchanting fragrance.

  • Gỏi cuốn

    Gỏi cuốn

    Gỏi cuốn is a spring roll dish that is uniquely served at room temperature, if not chilled. This is done to bring out the flavours of the pork and shrimp that it contains. These pieces of meats are wrapped into rolls with sheets of rice paper, before being served with nước chấm (Vietnam’s favourite dipping sauce). Cucumbers, carrots and rice vermicelli are also common components of these rolls.

  • Chinese Heritage Museum

    Chinese Heritage Museum

    As its name implies, the Chinese Heritage Museum depicts the arrival and growth of Johor’s sizeable Chinese community. Its four floors are filled with documents, photographs and other items that showcase various aspects of the lifestyle of the Johorean Chinese people, alongside artefacts that relate tales of the British colonisation and Japanese occupation.
