Niigata Prefecture is located along the coast of Japan in Chubu Region. One of the main highlights of Niigata would definitely be its premium quality rice.
Due to time constraint upon arrival in Niigata, the one destination we had decided to visit was the Northern Culture Museum. The place was originally served to pass down the historical lifestyle and culture of Japan’s great Ito landowner. They were originally farmers who lived in the Edo Period from 1603-1868.
The mundane bus ride from Niigata station to Northern Culture Museum was about 50 minutes long. Paddy fields were seen withering as winter claimed its season of the year.
The Imperial Citadel was one of the prominent highlights of Hue and was where the royal family of Nguyen dynasty lived, we spent our entire morning till noon exploring it. One interesting fact, the Imperial Citadel was actually modeled based on the Forbidden Palace in Beijing, China! Pay an entrance fee and you could enrich yourself with knowledge and culture.
As mentioned from my previous post, we travelled from Da Nang to Hue, a city that sits along the tranquil Perfume River.
Kuching, despite being the capital of Sarawak, was a perfect place for a weekends getaway from a bustling city life in Singapore. I absolutely was in love with Kuching’s slow pace after spending 3 days 2 nights on this island of Borneo, East Malaysia.
Being someone who fancies the urban city more than nature itself, I have visited and listed down some of the places which you might want to add to your bucket list when visiting Kuching. Since driving wasn’t an option for myself, all these places are easily accessible by cab.
Are you someone like me who would love to have a little climb for a scenic view of the urban landscape instead of a hike up a mountain?
There are amazing things about climbing a city’s structure that would cause nature lovers to frown upon. We avoid the dirt and dust from the sandy slopes as the the concrete/stone steps would be way safer and bearable to the non adventurous. As nature lovers enjoy nature, we also could enjoy the beautiful architecture of the cities as we admire from a bird’s eye view. You might probably spot your favorite fast food joint from the point you are standing! Not only that, you would not be able to argue that the resting points within a building/structure could be way more comfortable!
