Singapore is a tiny country located in Southeast Asia which is a popular tourist destination worldwide. This city-state is home to quite a diverse population of people who will definitely give you a lot to see and explore.

However, you’ll be quite happy to note that Singaporeans are rather fond of gardens — so much that you’ll see gardens tucked between two buildings on a busy road. Gardens By The Bay is a huge garden by the Marina Bay Sands Hotel and is one of the most-visited...

Located near Tokyo Bay in Japan, Tokyo is the capital of Japan and the most populous city in the world. While some may find it's crowded excitement a little too much, most tourists enjoy getting lost in the crowds of people on its busy roads. 

Forget Times Square because Shibuya Crossing is the busiest intersection in the world. With glittering billboards staring down at everyone from the surrounding buildings and salespeople, tourists, locals, and businesspeople mixing on the pedestrian crossings, the hustle, and bustle of life is a sight to see here.

In addition to wrestling the crowds, there are so many...

Bangkok, the capital of Thailand, is home to many things that fascinate tourists, which is why Bangkok has been the most visited city globally for many years now. With Paris, London, and New York in the competition, it’s surprising to know that this Thai city takes the cake each time. 

It’s hard to mention Bangkok without mentioning the sheer number of temples in the city. With interesting religious artwork such as the statues of the Reclining Buddha and the Golden Buddha present in these temples, you won’t quickly get bored of exploring them all.
