What to do in Bali? (When in Bali -Day 2)

Awake early for our complimentary half day tour, we have a full day ahead. Started with a breakfast buffet, we checked out early because we will be boarding the ship by noon.  Our driver, Komang, is already waiting by the lobby.  First stop is the Water Blow. Located at Nusa Dua, this is a famous attraction especially on windy days when large waves from the Indian ocean crashes against the limestone edges on the cliff. The nature creates a massive landscape of sharpened rocks along the south eastern cliff of the peninsula. But we have no luck today, the ocean was behaved as the sleeping beauty. Along the way is the Nusa Dua Beach. A surfing haven for some surfers. Not my kind but its great anyways. The sand is yellowish and a bit coarse with some dead corals (Still better in my hometown,Tayamaan Beach)  Other pictures around the Nusa Dua Beach Second stop is at the Bali Governors Office which is adjacent to a huge park called Renon Square and at the center of the square is the Bajra Sa

What to do in Bali? (When in Bali Day 1)

Our first destination is Bali, Indonesia. We came one day ahead before we board the ship.  Arrived late afternoon, we rushed to our room and change to swimming outfit. We only have this moment to enjoy the beach and the pool.  Our hotel is located at Nusa Dua, Benoa, the beach is right outside the hotel. Most rooms have beach and pool view. By night, we had an authentic Balinese massage and foot spa by the hotel. They have exclusive couple room and huge common room for big groups. 

What to do in Kota Kinabalu (Malaysia) for 1-hour?

MV Magellan, " the ship" will dock in Kota Kinabalu Malaysia for 5hours. We have no complimentary city tour from any of our suppliers because of the limited time to coordinate.  We managed to join the free shuttle service from the port to the nearest shopping mall, and from there, we will start the journey around the place. As we go down the bus, there were people offering us a city tour at usd100 for a 3-hr tour. As travel agents, we know this is very high. So we decided to walk a little bit far to go away from those people. We found ourselves at the waterfront of the city and seen these picturesque spot.  After the picture taking, my friend is so exhausted to join me around because of the heat. so she decided to stay behind the coffee shop and I decided to explore the city.  I got a cab just outside the coffee shop and haggled a good price to show me around the city in just one hour.  First stop, Atkinson Tower, built in memory of Francis George Atkinson. it was later used

What to do in Brunei (Bandar Seri Begawan)

Brunei is a tiny country at 5,765square kilometer. Having very limited time of 7hours to explore, we have to hustle.  Upon arrival of our ship at the Muara Port, a friend is waiting who generously shared his van and (Filipino) driver  (free of charge) to tour us around.  Our first stop is at the Royal Regalia Museum which was established to commemorate the 25th year anniversary ruling of the Sultan. It houses the grand chariot that was used by the Sultan when he parade after his acceptance of the crown. There are also massive collection of royal gifts that was given by the Dignitary visitors during their visit to the country.        (Outside the Royal Regalia)     The grand Chariot Next stop is the waterfront overlooking the water village. There is an optional boat ride to the other side of the water but we opt not to go because of the limited time. Going through the tour, we passed by the Omar Ali Saufuddien mosque and take a fast photo stop just around the gates  After the City mosqu
