Thailand is South East Asia’s most popular tourist destination, and it isn’t hard to see why. Known for its beautiful beaches, awe-inspiring temples and exciting modern cities like Bangkok, the country has something to offer everyone, no matter who they are or what they’re into.
The Italians have a concept for piddling around known as “Dolce Far Niente,” which means – the sweetness of doing nothing. I learned about this concept after watching Elizabeth Gilbert’s masterpiece Eat. Pray. Love. like a million times. The idea finally sunk in to me so I asked my dear husband to spend a weekend “staycation” with me in one of the resorts in Mactan just because. Sure, there are plenty of high end resorts to choose from but Maribago Bluewater Beach Resort clearly stood out for many reasons.
We love walking around a city, especially one that we’ve never been to before. We get to explore so many of the city’s sights, smells, sounds etc. However, during our recent trip to Hong Kong, we didn’t have much time to explore and we didn’t want to be hauled up on the MTR for half the day so exploring the city by open top bus seemed perfect. We could hop on and off all over the city therefore, we could still hear the sounds of the city and really feel like we were experiencing everything Hong Kong had to offer but with the speed a bus offers over walking.
