48 Hours in Yangon, Myanmar

This post is about our 48 hours in Yangon. We actually staggered our time in Yangon, spending an afternoon and following morning in the city before leaving for Bagan, and coming back after Ngapali for a further afternoon and evening before leaving very early the following morning for Hpa An. Finally, after Hpa An, we […]

Six Things to See In Singapore

Over Christmas I spent a week in Singapore, enjoying time at both the Fullerton Hotel and ParkRoyal Pickering Hotel.

Dash is nestled amongst boutiques, restaurants and several very popular resorts (the Alila and the W are just a short walk away). Located right across […]
