This post may contain affiliate links. Read my full disclosure.

  “Are you sure you want to rent a car through this website? Not many reviews yet, you know?” I’d asked my partner. I was referring to a Taiwan Car Rental listing on Klook.com. I’ve no qualms about being a guinea pig when it comes to testing hotels and Airbnbs. But testing a car is a serious matter. If a car breaks down in a foreign land, it is no small joke. There’s a lot of …

  Hi all, travelling to Taiwan soon and need WiFi connectivity? I’ve just returned from Taiwan and highly-recommend this Taiwan 4G WiFi (TW Airport Pick Up). I am so impressed with this 4G WiFi device that I’d depended on for 9 days, traveling from Taoyuan to Taichung and even some mountainous regions. I’ve also tested this at the summit of Hehuanshan East Peak and there wasn’t a lag. Can you believe it? Now, I guess you know why I’m …

Where to Stay in Melaka that offers a Spectacular Seaview? (Plus Parking Woes in Melaka Malls) – Day 2

This post may contain affiliate links. Read my full disclosure.

Where should you stay in Melaka? How about setting base at an upscale neighborhood that offers an amazing view of the Strait of Melaka? You can be neighbor to a 5-star hotel and swim at an instagram-worthy infinity pool, which in my opinion, qualifies as an attraction on its own. All for a very affordable price, ya know? :) Today’s post is part of the 3D2N Melaka Getaway series. You’ll read about what we did in …
