Top Things to do in Kaoshiung,Taiwan|Hauz Of EA

Kaohsiung is a massive port city in southern Taiwan. It’s home to many skyscrapers, such as the 85th Sky Tower, Lotus Pond, Qijin Island, Fu Guang shan museum, and is known for its diversity of parks. Its focal point is the Love River, with walking paths and cafes, restaurants and cruise boats navigating its waters. Shopping options range from high-end malls to the Liuhe and Ruifeng night markets.

Kaohsiung also offers scenic mountains, ocean views, and rivers, as well as a port, cultural, and historic attractions. Kaoshiung is the second-largest city after Taipei and Kaohsiung is the lesser-known travel destination most people overlook in favor of the capital. But beneath the cover of this sleepy seaside city lies a treasure trove of undiscovered gems.

I travel from Taipei main station – Zouying (Kaohsiung) station by using THSR (high-speed train) booked ticket by KLOOK travel and it’s only 1 half-hour. Zouying station exit 5 for taxi meter car. From zouying station 25-30 mins by meter taxi car for (T$340) but you can also use red line metro train to sanduo shopping district station if you going to 85th sky tower or nearest area. And another good thing in Kaohsiung your not going to pay any admission fee/entrance fee for your tour.

Love River The Love River scenery is enhanced by attractive city structures near the river, such as the Holy Rosary Cathedral, Kaohsiung Bridge, and the Kaohsiung Love River station. Cultural events such as concerts and the Lantern Festival are often held by the river. Love River is now used for sightseeing, and there are duck boats, love boats and gondola rides for tourists to enjoy the city view. You can rent a bike as well around the area.

A day city tour

New Year Eve in Furama Hotel, Chiang Mai|Hauz Of EA

My first time to spend the new year abroad. It feels different because I expect more fireworks like Manila in the Philippines but I shouldn’t also compare and I wanted to see the fireworks closer so we book a buffet dinner for 2000 Baht in Furama hotel because it’s in rooftop of the hotel, Furama Hotel has a small elevator (lol) the first time to try that small elevator, it’s cute (hmmm). The setup and theme were beautiful, girls were so polite and look pretty in their gown, dinner was great, it taste so fresh, they have a good music band, they have raffle games every 1 hour and the price is Free lunch buffet (not bad), right? Before the countdown, they distribute small stuff to make the sound for a new year. The expectation of the fireworks VS reality. There are no fireworks in Furama Hotel where I spent my new year eve. However, fireworks and lanterns in Old City and other areas were amazing even it was too short. I’m gonna share a short video of my New Year’s eve. How about your new years eve? What do you think about it? Share it with me below!

6 Tips on How to Build the best morning routines?

Do you struggle to get out of your bed in the morning because it’s so warm and cozy? Or maybe because you feel tired? Or do you need coffee immediately in order to get moving?

I understand not everyone is a morning person, with just a few tricks you can improve your morning routines and be productive the whole day.

1. DITCH YOUR SMARTPHONE

Many people look at their smartphones within the first 5 minutes after waking up. Break that routine. Looking at the screen of your phone right away increases your stress level.

2. DO SOME SIMPLE STRETCH

A few gentle stretches before and after getting out of bed will activate your body and get your blood flowing for the day.

3. LET THE SUNLIGHT IN

Open the curtains and windows to get some light: light sends a signal to your brain that it’s time to be awake and stop producing melatonin, a sleep-regulating hormone. Get a deep breath and feel the morning fresh air.

4. TAKE A MINUTE

Give yourself a quiet minute in the morning. Drinking water in the morning keeps your body hydrated as the day starts, helps promote a sustained flow of blood to your skin and releases toxins from your system. Enjoy those minutes to drink your tea or coffee, think about what you need to do that day, or even write down your plan or things to do for today. Read some positive quotes. Nothing will make your day better than starting it with a positive mindset!

5. HAVE A GOOD BREAKFAST

Never have time for a tasty breakfast? According to Addidas runtastic, 31% of males and females between the age of 35 and 54 are breakfast skippers. How about getting up just 15 or 20 minutes earlier? A nutritious breakfast gives you energy and maintains more stable glucose responses during the afternoon and evening. Simple and easy breakfast like Banana Toast with peanut butter, avocado toast with egg, Oatmeal or Chia seeds with some berries. I use to have 1 boil egg and half of the banana when I don’t have much time and sometimes just get half a slice of apple with yogurt. Having Coffee every morning it’s like gasoline in my body to keep me moving and it gives me a lot of energy. My day is not complete without a coffee.

6. LISTEN A MUSIC

Music has always garnished healing strengths and can bring you in a good mood. A happy-good playlist would have you ready to kick your workday’s butt.

Now you are ready for the whole day, you have the energy to focus on your passion will not only make you feel better or make you happy, but your hard work will pay you off on the end.

Thank you!

Top 4 best list to visit Chiang Rai in 1-day tours

Chiang Rai is a port city in northern Thailand, in the mountainous province of the same name. Chiang Rai City remains a sleepy provincial town with a pleasant atmosphere. Compared to its sister town Chiang Mai, it has a more relaxed and down-to-earth feel but is never short on historical and cultural attractions of its own. From Chiang Mai City I travel to Chiang Rai for 3 half – 4 hours by Car. I booked KLOOK Travel for private but they have also available tours for group and more good deals that suit for you. My first stop is to White Temple (Wat Rong Khun), Singha Park, Blue Temple (Wat Rong Suea Ten), lastly the Black Temple or Black House ( Baan Dam Museum).

WHITE TEMPLE ( WAT RONG KHUN) is a privately owned art exhibit style of a Buddhist temple in Chiang Rai Province, Thailand. They have Light show its called “The Illumination of White Temple” during the Light Festival. Wat Rong Khun is extremely beautiful when you see it outside. Unique Architecture and Structure. However, Wat Rong Khun is very touristic and it was crowded when the time I visit. It’s not really pleasant to go there when the other group tourists are shouting and very loud. The bridge of “the cycle of rebirth”: the main building at the white temple, the ubosot, is reached by crossing a bridge over a small lake. After crossing the bridge, the visitor arrives at the “gate of heaven”, when the visitors are not allowed to take pictures. Same in the gallery building(Golden Building) visitors are only allowed to take pictures outside. Admission for Thai nationals is free, foreigners are required to pay 100 baht and a different way to go inside.

Here is my short video of White Temple & Blue Temple.
Please don’t forget to subscribe!

BLUE TEMPLE ( WAT RONG SUEA TEN) Is the newest and modern Buddhist temple distinguished by its vivid blue coloring & elaborate carvings. Above all its magnificent blue interior with a large white Buddha that marks the spirits. The paintings are reminiscent of the style of what you can see inside the Blue Temple. It is a very small temple but very attractive, quiet and relaxing, unlike the white temple that is more crowded. You’ll also be expected to take off your shoes outside before entering the Blue Temple and wear proper clothes which is knees and shoulder should be cover. Wat Rong Suea Ten – Blue Temple is a temple and when you visit a temple in Thailand there are some rules to know and follow which is good to give some respect to the Buddhist. The good thing when you visit the blue temple you’re allowed to take photos inside so I’m able to share it with you. Admission is free.

SINGHA PARK Singha Park is a scenic refreshing park in a farm-like setting with tea & organic plantations, orchards & different flowers, trails, a tram & a petting zoo and more. You can find restaurants, Coffee shops, Souvenirs shop, and Clean toilet. I had my lunch here in Singha park after an almost 1-hour tour around Singha park. (See the video below) Admission Fee is 100 baht and you’ll experience by electric car they called around Singha park. Farm Tour is Open every day from 9 am – 5 pm.

Here is my video of Singha Park & Baan Dam (Black House Museam).
Don’t forget to subscribe!

BLACK TEMPLE (BAAN DAM MUSEUM) This Black Museum is a collection of woods, arts, and creation by Thawan Duchanee and other thai artists. Thawan devoted his life and spent his energy almost 3 decades building Folk Art Museum and Exhibit and the architecture are very unique in terms of arts. Each building has a display of works of art to admire and clearly demonstrate the identity of A. Thawan such as buffalo horns artwork, animal bones, tiger and snakeskin, crocodile skin, beautiful woodwork carving, ornate stucco artwork that conceals a philosophy and beliefs. It created a lot of excitement and also gets new concepts through these artworks. It’s a little bit creepy for me but it was fun and surprising as you can walk with the trees around you and take a seat while resting you can grab a black or white ice cream. Sounds good right?
