Asia » Singapore » Kampong Glam June 4th 2021

My grilfriend decided to spend Christmas 2015 in Singapore. As Singapore isn't a cheap place, the first chanllenge was to find a good place to stay at a reasonable price. I found the "Parkroyal on Beach Road" hotel, and I can say it was a good choice: friendly staff, comfortable and very clean rooms and great location, near Singapore Flyer and Orchard Road. Many retaurants are near, and many of htem at a good price. We had booked a Christmas dinner at the saveur restaurant on 5 Purvis Street, and it wasn't a disappointment. Excellent food and wine, great staff. Well, we spent 5 days there, and a lot of time went into shopping, my girlfriend loves Orchard Road, which shouldn't come as a suprise at all. Good thing is, if you have enough time, you ... read more

Asia » Thailand » Central Thailand » Bangkok December 22nd 2011

December 22, 2011 My bags are packed, I am sitting here at home waiting to go to the airport. I have mixed feelings about going to Thailand this time, I sure want to go, but then again, I feel a bit insecure. I haven't reached the goals I had in 2011, physically that is, I feel old and fat now. Ok, there's not much one can do about age, and I don't care much about age anyway, but I should have done something about being fat, though. And from my own history I know that every kilogram adds to my insecurity. I am a pretty self-confident guy, but sometimes it just strikes me I should lose weight :-) Anyway, I am glad to get out of my every day routine, I've worked a lot lately, and ... read more

Asia » Thailand » Central Thailand » Bangkok May 28th 2011

May 28, 2011 So it's Bangkok again! I just love this place; it never sleeps, and people have this special openness I like a lot. I arrived on time at the airport and I got through the immigration procedure as fast as never before. So I was in my hotel at 2:30pm already, which was nice, so easy-going. Only bad news is that the supermarket just across the road is closed due to renovating; I have to find a store that provides me with all I need, but that shouldn't be a problem here in Bangkok. Instead of taking a nap I took my camera and went for a short walk, see the pictures. After having a shower (it's hot here now) I went to my favorite restaurant just around the corner; it's a seafood ... read more

Asia » Thailand » Central Thailand » Bangkok December 25th 2010

Back to Bangkok Actually, I was supposed to go to Abu Dhabi this Christmas together with my girlfriend; but we broke up a couple of weeks ago, so I decided to go to another of my favorite cities, Bangkok! I was here last 18 months ago, and it always makes me feel good. To be around people who love life so much without needing wealth, that is what really srikes me. I left Frankfurt on December 22 in the evening, and I was very lucky because I was upgraded to Business Class and could get a good deal of sleep. No idea why I was chosen, I guess it was a raffle or something. I arrived Thursday evening and went straight to my hotel. I chose the Novotel on Siam Square, not the cheapest hotel ... read more

Asia » China » Shanghai July 10th 2010

One week in one of my favorite cities! I left my hometown Frankfurt, Germany on saturday, June 26. Flying with Lufthansa to Mailand, Italy and from there to Shanghai with Air China. The flight was ok, but of course after having travelled for more than 15 hours in one stretch I was happy to finally arrive in Shanghai on sunday morning. It was not my first time there, I visited several times, for business and leisure, too. But the city changes so quickly that I only recognized a few things. Well, it had been a couple of years since my last visit. I took a taxi from the airport to my hotel. I had booked in advance in the Salvo Hotel in Guang Dong Lu, which is very central and a clear recommendation. It is only ... read more
