How much are three days in Singapore

How much are 3 days in Singapore incl. Gardens by the Bay & Hiking

By

3 Days in Singapore in a capsule hotel – How much is it? Singapore, Singapore, Singapore – I’m fascinated by how this tiny country managed to get so many travellers to stay for a few days. And all thanks to their airport really. It is a major hub in Asia. I haven’t met many people that actually planned a trip to Singapore – most of the travellers are travelling through.

Horror dive in Bali

Horror dive in Bali or the importance of proper dive briefings and knowing your limits I had finally arrived in Bali.

7 Reasons to visit Istanbul 1. Low prized destination From Austria, you can book a flight to Istanbul for under 100 € (round trip).

By

How to spend one day in New Delhi – without breaking the bank Truth to be said: India can be overwhelming for many travellers. Many use New Delhi as their starting and finishing point. So did I and used it more or less as a home base for my 11 day trip through Northern India. New Delhi is a huge city and getting from one end to the other can be a journey itself. Of course there are many historic places and museums and palaces and temples and so on, but let’s focus on stuff that’s not in the guide…

India by rail – First class overnight + packing list

By

India by rail – First class overnight Let’s talk India! Many, many of you recommended to travel India by rail. First thing I did when I arrived in New Delhi was to go and buy train tickets to Varanasi. Although I was looking to book the trains 6 (!) days in advance most of the train tickets were gone. In most classes. I wanted to take the night train from New Delhi (NDLS) to Varanasi (MUV). This journey takes about 13 hours. The only option available was to get a first class ticket on the 12560/Shiv Ganga Express at 6.55pm…
