    Pho Ga

    Pho Ga

    What makes pho ga such a remarkable dish is its immensely flavourful broth, which is surprising since the broth is mostly clear in nature. These flavours come from chicken—the broth’s main meat component—and a variety of herbs and spices, like coriander seeds and cilantro. Rice noodles are the starch element of choice in this dish, and it is best enjoyed with lime wedges for a tangy punch.

  • Wat Phnom

    Wat Phnom

    Wat Phnom is the temple from which Phnom Penh’s name was derived. It has been rebuilt on many occasions, but the original structure reportedly dates back to 1373, when it was erected by a figure named Madame Penh to hold four statues of Buddha that she attained from the Mekong River. It is a popular worship place amongst locals, especially for those who are undergoing exams.

  • Manukan Island

    Manukan Island

    A boat ride of about 15 to 20 minutes is all it takes to get from Kota Kinabalu town to Manukan Island, one of Sabah’s prime jewels. The island is especially famous amongst locals for its coral reefs and beautiful beaches, and this is evident from the large number of guests who visit the island just to lie on its stretches of fluffy sand or to go snorkelling.

  • Sandwich Ice Cream

    Sandwich Ice Cream

    Traditionally referred to as potong (cut) ice cream, the sandwich ice cream does not pretend to be anything other than what its name implies. It is typically made of a rectangular block of ice cream, placed between two slices of bread, colourful cake or wafer biscuits. Singaporeans normally enjoy this dessert by purchasing it from roadside vendors.

  • WAT WISUNALAT

    WAT WISUNALAT

    Sometimes referred to as Wat Visounnarat, Wat Wisunalat was constructed in 1512, making it one of Luang Prabang’s oldest temples. Its defining trait is That Pathum, a massive stupa that incorporates unique Singhalese elements of design. Although it has been rebuilt over the years on numerous occasions, it still functions today as an active institution of Buddhism, with a large collection of Buddhist imagery and artefacts.

  • Sukawati Art Market

    Sukawati Art Market

    The Sukawati Art Market is easily Bali’s most prominent shopping destination for all things related to art. From wooden sculptures to vibrant paintings, the colourful market is a haven for those who are on the hunt for decorative items or souvenirs. It is also a good place for you to practice your bargaining skills, although it is often advised that this should be done in a light-hearted and fun way. (Image Credit: hiddenmode | Flickr)

  • Chek Chien

    Chek Chien

    The people of Siem Reap have a special place in their hearts for bananas, as seen through their inclusion of this fruit in all types of cuisine–especially dessert! This dish features bananas that are deep fried in a batter of coconut milk, sesame seeds, water, sugar and salt. But if bananas do not tickle your fancy, fret not, for it comes in variations of taro and yam as well.

  • Aung San Suu Kyi’s House

    Aung San Suu Kyi’s House

    This home was the location in which Aung San Suu Kyi, Myanmar’s champion of democracy, was placed under house arrest by the military junta. Until she was released in 2010, anyone who wanted to see the Nobel Peace Prize Laureate’s colonial-style home had to do so from 300 metres away, across the Inya Lake.

  • The Waterfront

    The Waterfront

    Accessible throughout the day, the Waterfront is Bandar Seri Begawan’s go-to place for scenic views of landmarks and the iconic Brunei River. It is handsomely decorated with eateries, making it a popular place to settle down for dinner while watching the sun set or to catch glimpses of Kampong Ayer – Bandar Seri Begawan’s famed water village – that rests opposite.
