There is something about the buzz of this city that makes me think of it as the New York City of Asia. Skyscrapers, bright lights, an incredible food and drink scene. If you haven't yet been - Hong Kong is an absolute must do when travelling Asia.
There is so much to like about Chiang Mai: lush national parks, history, trendy street art, awesome food and coffee.

What a city!! So much to see and do to suit (literally) every taste imaginable. Absolutely loved everything about Tokyo.
We booked a quick weekend escape to HCMC in August 2016 - knowing full well that such a vibrant city would require more time than a weekend allows for. But given how easy of an escape from Singapore it was, we shall certainly be making a return visit soon!
