APAC tour Day 3 or 4

Well here it is now the 11th, it’s still the 10th for some.  But either way I’m in Singapore now and this is the first day of work I’ve done.  Monday was spent recovering from the long voyage as well as doing some sight seeing.  Not planned but definitely enjoyed.

So possibly of interest though who knows, I don’t think anyone is even reading this.  I am just writing to write at this point.  A few of the places on my list of must see places has been marked off:

Merlion

Marina Bay Sands

Only a few more left for Singapore overall, but might be adding more to my list based on what my coworkers are telling me.  End of my diatribe for the 11th.

p.s.  They were amazing to see…

APAC tour Day 1

So as some of you may already know I’m headed off to the other side of the world.  I will be gone for about 2 weeks give or take.  That being said, I’m excited as well as nervous to get to go abroad again.  Especially on the company dime.  Today happens to be day 1 of my long trip.  Right now I’m writing from my connection in SFO before I take off to Singapore (SIN).  Here’s a list of the countries I will be visiting in the order I will be visiting them:

  1. Singapore
  2. Hong Kong
  3. Thailand
  4. Malaysia
  5. Singapore
  6. United States

Most of the time I will be spending in Singapore and Thailand.  My weekends abroad will also be in those countries.   Right now I have a long layover in SFO of 11+ hours before I take off for a 16+ hour flight.  Yay me!  If you can’t already tell I’m massively bored.  Thankfully I have awesome friends that are willing to come to the city to have a dinner with me before I fly off into the wild blue yonder.  This is the second time I will have gone to most of these locations, except Malaysia.  It will be the first time for that country, I will be in Kuala Lumpur most of the time. I hope to be able to do some sight seeing while traveling as that is the wish of most travelers whether they be business travelers or leisure.

Singapore there’s a few places I’d like to hit:

  1. The Merlion (last time I didn’t get to visit it because I wasn’t there long enough to do so)
  2. Marina Bay Waterfront Promenade
  3. The Supertrees Grove
  4. Gardens by the Bay

Hong Kong:

  1. Kowloon Park
  2. Nan Lian Garden
  3. Chi Lin Nunnery
  4. Wong Tai Sin Temple

Thailand

  1. Wat Arun Rajwararam
  2. Golden Jubilee Temple
  3. Wat Thep Leela 
  4. Wat Ladprao

Malaysia

  1. Batu Caves
  2. Petronas Twin Towers
  3. Kuala Lumpur Tower
  4. Aquaria KLCC

If I even get half of those I will consider myself accomplished.  More in the days to come but for now I will wait until my trip tonight.  Feel free to leave me suggestions should you have any for the places I’m venturing.
