Singapore: Sungei Road Thieves’ Market & Rochor Canal

I don’t think anybody would deny that Singapore has plenty of shopping opportunities for all budgets. Development for new, glitzy shopping malls is constantly ongoing and regularly a new one pops up somewhere. Probably the most extreme opposite to these shopping malls one can get is a visit to the...

Travel pr0 tip #1: communication with the taxi driver

Under the series “travel pr0 tips”, I’ll start compiling some advice for the road that I have personally found really useful. Today’s post is about communication with taxi drivers in foreign countries. Unless it is a country where I feel confident communicating in the local language or taxi drivers are...

Qingdao: German architecture

With a couple of friends I took advantage of the long weekend over May 1st recently and embarked on a trip to Chinese city which is slightly less known in Europe: Qingdao. The name probably does not ring a bell, especially the way it is spelt. However, once I tell...

World’s smallest wine menu?

I just got back from a trip to Qingdao in China and will have some good stories and photos to share. In the mean time, here is what has to be the world’s smallest wine menu. Which makes sense if you consider that Qingdao is famous for its beer…

Located on Beach Road, the Golden Mile Complex is where you want to be heading. There isn’t...

Singapore: tailor made clothes

While Singapore is probably not South-East Asia’s best known city for tailor made clothes (that would probably be Bangkok) there are still numerous shops in the shopping malls downtown that offer tailor made suits, shirts and much more. Prices are not that competitive and I’ve read mixed reviews. After some...

Football derby in Singapore
