29-03-2016 – Kuala Lumpur Country Side Tour

And today we did a Country Side Tour. Actually it was visiting Buta Cave and Royal Selangor Factory. From the last one i didn’t make images. It was so interesting what guide told me i was forgotten to make them… Finally the driver showed me a Chinese Temple. A nice one!

27-03-2016 – Shopping malls Kuala Lumpur Centre

In Kuala Lumpur centre there are lots of shopping malls!! Suria KLCC, Avenue K, Pavilion KL, Starhill, Fahrenheit 88, Lot 10, Plaza Bukit Bintang, Plaza Sungei Wang and Plaza Low Yat. Last one is a computer mall.

From Suria KLCC you walk true the park and go into the Exhibition building so you will reach the SkyBridge. Or from Suria KLCC follow signs Aquaria KLCC and you will reach the finally the SkyBridge as well. This SkyBridge is a bridge you can walk all the way to Pavilion KL without busy roads to cross over. From there follow the Jalan Bukit Bintang and all the shops are on the left hand.

17-03-2016 – James Bond Island

In 1974 the James Bond movie “Man with golden gun” was filmed here. Now a touristic chaos!. But when you look around and find a good spot you can make some nice images and have the feeling you’re alone there. Check for yourself:

10-03-2016 – Phuket Sightseeing

It was a long day… Mini-van in, Mini-van out. Walking around for 10 or 20 min then back in the mini-van. Here the list of all destinations:

Kata View Point
Elephant trekking
Monkey Show *
Snake Show *
Big Buddha
Chalong Temple
Cashew Nut Factory
Canoeing Around Mangroves
Bang Pae Waterfall *
Chinese Temple

Most of them where nice to see. Some i din’t like. The money show and Snake show. It seems that the animals like it…. but no. Every hour a person make the snakes angry or afraid to show the tourist how they react. That is not Entertainment. Show a video with this, then walk around and tell something about these snakes.  Later the day we went to the Waterfall and Gibbon Project. Gibbon Project is to get Gibbons who used for tourism industry. Strange that earlier the day you see a monkey show, and later the day a rescue project for Gibbons.

For a visual idea of this Sightseeing see the images. Oh and I don’t have images for the 2 shows, principles:

02-03-2016 – Room at PGS Hotels 360°

This hotel is from a Russian company. I didn’t know that and thats ok. The style of the hotel is how you see some interiors in Russian buildings as well (Never been their, but saw some images). Lots of Russian visitors here and Scandinavian people. The Russians are loud, hard talking, smashing the doors. I cannot say if thats normal for their culture but when you in bed and you hear many sounds in the hallway its annoying. After 23:30-00:00 is almost quiet.

The hotel is clean! And its 5-10min walk from the beach. There is a little swimming pool so when you want cool down at the end of the day. After i went to the beach i goto the pool, lay in shadows and relax then go upstairs to get a shower and put aftersun on my body.

I have a good signal of the WiFi, better then the WiFi connection in Novotel in Shanghai and Beijing… So im very happy because i can upload my images without timeouts!

My view is nice. At the highest floor and see the ocean. The sunset is always nice to see!!

22-02-2016 – Lama Temple and Temple of Heaven

After my Olympic Park visit i went too 2 temples: Lama Temple and Temple of heaven. Both very crowded with people. And seems i was the only white guy around there. The temples where colored so nice, and everywhere people pray, and give money to the buddha. When i was in temple of heaven 2 times people want on a photo with me, so i was the only white guy there, and a new attraction was born…

21-02-2016 – Shanghai to Beijing

This morning went to Shanghai Railway Station to take the High-Speed train to Beijing. The ride was perfect. I bought a 1st class ticket and had almost my own cabin haha. The train will stop several times between Shanghai and Beijing and the whole journey took 7 hours. I shoot some images of the locations and now you have a little impression what i saw the whole day.

A cup of coffee cost 2,- euro, so thats normal. After u arrived at Beijing South a bought a metro card. When you know the metro system in other big cities, then every metro in every city is easy. Sometimes you have to ask something. There was a short part of the route with a old part of metro. So no signs, no map, nothing. I had to ask for it.

After i arrive at my hotel i booked my excursion to Great wall, costs 39,- euro. Pickup from hotel to Great wall, a guide, and when i arrive at Great Wall i will use a cablecar to get higher in te mountains. But you will see the images later.

Now below you can see some images i took in the train. Ohh im so happy with my Nikon 24-70mm f2.8. The train had a speed of 305km/hour. And all my images are sharp 😀

19-02-2016 – Financial Area Lujiazui

Below you have a nice view of this area. Check the 360° degrees image:
