Navigating my favourite destinations

It’s no secret I love to travel. These days it’s more for work than pleasure, but I always find time to fit in plenty of delicious local cuisine, some shopping, and exploring around the places that are a little off the beaten path.

When I arrive at my destination, I always keep things simple; I try to eat, shop, relax and hangout where the locals do. For those of you who love to travel like a local too, I’ve put together a collection of Khoo (and Khoollect) posts to help you plan your next adventure. Whether you’re hopping across to Paris, taking a long flight to Sydney, spending a weekend in London, or longer in Melbourne, you’re sure to find more than a few great spots to visit by clicking the links below:

  1. thank you for your tip. when will you come to Thailand? i will glad to show you my local Thai food and you will love it!!!!

  2. thank you for your tip.South-East Asia In Its Full Regalia As A Tourist Spot..Asia for long has stood as the place for mystical ventures and the unexplored territory full of surprises. The western world has always been fascinated by the oriental aspects of the Southeast Asian countries. Yet time and again events like wars and rebel activities robbed the places of the flow of tourists for decades. The attractions posed by palm tree lined beaches; the rice fields stretching into miles were soon lost from the public memory.
