The Datai is a stunning hideaway that is located at the end of a quiet road on the worth west coast of Langkawi Island in Malaysia. It is situated within a 10 million old rainforest, and my villa truly was set amidst a lush rain forest, which gave the impression that I was really alone in this magnificent setting. . . . → Read More: The Datai Langkawi

Nishiki Market Kyoto

The Nishiki Market runs along a covered laneway for five city blocks, and each side of the laneway is filled with narrow shops which are filled with an unbelievable range of food stuffs, most of which are locally grown and prepared on the premises.

Kings Park Wildflowers

Western Australia has over 12,000 varieties of wildflowers, most of which are unique to the state.

Although the botanic gardens feature these wildflowers in ordered garden beds, which are quite dazzling in the variety and depth of colours, the major part of Kings Park is natural bushland, and to walk along the many bush trails at this time is almost like an attack on the ocular senses so vivid is the range of plants you can enjoy entirely in their natural state. . . . → Read More: Kings Park Wildflowers
