As compared to other parts of Lima, Miraflores has a great western influence but what makes it stunning and vibrant is the six-mile stretch of parks situated along the cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The district also has a lot to offer when it comes to shopping, hotels, parks, beaches, restaurants, cafes, bars and clubs. Most international flights enter through Lima so you are bound to stay there for a few days before you head to your final destination. Even if you decide to stay in another district, you shouldRead More →

Arequipa things to do

Many people say that the moment you step into Arequipa, you wouldn’t want to leave anymore. I had the exact same feeling the moment I arrived in this city.

“A tiny oasis in Peru? For real?” It seems completely unreal but this tiny village sits right there at the Southern part of Peru 5 hours away from Lima. Although it is not the most inspiring place to visit in Peru, tourists flock there for two main reasons: sandboarding and dune buggy ride. I actually went to Huacachina because I’d really love to see the place in person but I didn’t have it in my mind to try any of these adrenaline inducing activities. The thought of rolling over the sand and swallowing mouthful of sand really scared me so I decided that maybe IRead More →

Suriname is one of the least-traveled countries in South America but there are so much things to explore inside this small, tropical country especially its untouched natural wonders. I have stayed for almost three years already here but I’d say I haven’t learned everything yet about this greenest country on Earth. Suriname is ranked No. 1 by telegraph.co.uk as the world’s most tree-filled country with 95% covered in forest. Last 2015, I purposely flew all the way here for work and didn’t really bother to do much of an exploring until recently when we decided to tag along with some Surinamese friends to the forest, whichRead More →

I started drafting the itinerary 2 months before the trip.  I had mixed emotions while doing the preparations. I felt excited by looking at over hundreds of photos and reading dozens of articles and I also made myself scared and dubious by reading about the place’s crime and safety. This was my first international trip that was purely leisure so  I just wanted everything to be perfect. So what made me choose Sao Paulo. Well, aside that we do not need visa to travel here, Sao Paulo is the largest city in Brazil and in South America with over 11 million of inhabitants. It isRead More →
