    • From: pennylaura
    • Description:

      I've accidentally left my DSLR Camera Nikon D7000 at Kuala Lumpur LCCT Air Asia on Dec 22, 2013. The camera wa put in a black bag with letter "Lowe" on the front. I put it on the 2nd row chair near the Exit Gate of T8 Air Asia and forgot to bring it with me when entering the aircraft.

      The camera contains many of my travelling pictures around Indonesia, Singapore and Malaysia. So, it's very valuable for me. If anyone found it, kindly please return the memory card with the pictures in it. Rewards will be available.

      I can be contacted at pennylaura@yahoo.com

       

      Thanks

  • Trip Through Vietnam Trip Through Vietnam

    • From: activetravelasia
    • Description:

      Michael recently returned from his trip with Vietnam Travel Plan, where he visited the atmospheric cities of Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, lounged on the untouched island of Phu Quoc and marvelled at Cai Rang’s floating market on the Mekong river. He kept a travel diary on his trip and has allowed us to share a few snippets of his adventure..

      by THE RICKSHAW 

      ‘My interest in Vietnamese history has grown and with that interest a desire to see Vietnam has grown that should have been sated long before now. Now on my return to the UK from Indonesia via Singapore it seemed a very good time to make amends that miss.’
      Hanoi: ‘To see throngs of people at exercise in the square lightened my day at 6am.’
      Vietnam Trip- Hanoi 
      Halong bay: ‘The pleasure of almost touching heaven came as I wined and dined on glorious seafood aboard a Vietnam junk at Halong Bay. And what a sunset that day gave me to complete the unbelievable serenity.’
      Vietnam Trip- Halong Bay
      Ho Chi Minh City: ‘Ho Chi Minh City came next. Perhaps more organised and western than Hanoi, it had its moments. I crawled inside the VC tunnels at Cu Chi, looked at all their bamboo traps for searching soldiers and was mighty glad I had not been a GI caught in one of those.’
      Mekong Delta: ‘I was treated to the strange and unexpected pleasure of the Mekong Delta and the wealth of waterways and rice fields that make up this unforgettable place. The floating market at Cai Rang was amongst the liveliest of memories. I actually think that this taste of river life was something I had never seen before.’
      Phu Quoc: ‘My final days of rest were at the totally unspoiled island of Phu Quoc near the border with Cambodia’
      ‘Vietnam have just recently designated the Lotus as the national flower. They say it represents the open generous spirit and the beauty of the Vietnamese people. In my experience one can’t argue that. What a delightful way to end ones latest travels, to end in a place that seems happy and so much at peace with itself and wants the visiting world to see and share. Thank you Vietnam for making me see truism once again, even though I never need reminding about my good fortune.’

      ACTIVETRAVEL ASIA would like to recommend Family Adventures in Vietnam tour.With its stunning natural landscapes, millennia-old history, exciting cosmopolitan cities, friendly hamlets and mélange of cultural influences, Vietnam has it all. And there’s no better way to become acquainted with this vibrant country than by exploring it under your own locomotion and at your own pace. Walk past pagodas and temples in old Hanoi, kayak amid labyrinthine limestone outcrops in Halong Bay, bike past vibrant green rice paddies, investigate magnificent historic sites in Hue and stroll through the enchanting city of Hoi An, one of Vietnam’s architectural gems. Round out your days of discovery with meals of delicious local cuisine and stays at warm welcoming hotels.
      Highlights: 
      • Kayaking in the amazing Halong Bay
      • Biking in the majestic former capital of Hue
      • Charming ancient town of Hoian
      • Floating market of Cai Rang

      Coppy right PJandMike

      Well yes I am back - I know you have all missed me whilst I have been scanning off on Halong Bay. So here goes, we get picked up on time by the cruise company and start picking up the other passengers. This is where the fun began as we had one gentleman who was Australian (name of Nigel), he had a very loud voice and very funny. 


       It’s very interesting that the passengers on board were multi cultural i.e. a couple from the gold coast in Australia, a couple from Spain, a couple from Singapore, a couple from France, 2 couples from Turkey and a lady from Korea - told you we were multi-cultural. 

      The cruise did not look exactly like the pictures from outside but we found out that the Vietnamese government has instructed all the big cruise boats on Halong Bay must be painted white. Anyway, after this was our only disappointment on the trip as our cabin was at the front and had a balcony with sun beds - how lucky are we or what! 

       
       
      So after dropping our bags off we take a boat ride on a smaller boat to see the floating village of Vung Vieng and then onto a pontoon where they show you how they Implant oysters to achieve pearls - that amazed me as I never knew they did this I always thought you were lucky if you had an oyster with a pearl in - how I thought they would have enough pearls to make necklaces, earrings etc I don't know. 
        
       

      So after the little excursion we go back to the cruise ship and have a sunset party of sangria which really helped the Spanish couple to integrate. 

      Then we had a cooking class and yes you guessed it we made spring rolls - I should be an expert at these as remember I made them in Cambodia. As you are all well aware by now of my competitive nature I was really up for this cooking class and not only wanted to make the best but also the fastest. 

      After dinner there was squid fishing but as we were told that it is not squid season I could not see the point in standing at the back of the boat with fishing net and no chance of catching a squid. 
       

      So next morning, We went to a little bay and jump kayak. We are taken by our guide Duan (English name Tim) in our kayaks to a little cave which the water is filling up and it is pitch black. I start to panic as we are in a double kayak Mike is shouting at me to go left - remember I don't know my right from left and in a panic situation I can tell you I really do not know it and so I go right and we are stuck under the top of the cave. We have a torch but as I said I was panicking and could not turn this on - so Mike is shouting at me turn the torch on I am shouting back I cannot turn the thing on! What a palaver! All I could think of is we are stuck and the water is coming into the cave so Mike agreed to turn around. So after the cave we kayak around the bay through some really nice BIG natural stone arches. 
      We then return to the boat for lunch. After lunch we are taken to a secluded beach with only a few people on and you can only get to by boat. This was where the fun started - there was a group of Vietnamese men who kept on covering themselves in sand and hollering - it was like none of them had seen sand before. Then they get in the sea and take their trunks off - they were really enjoying themselves - it was great to watch. 

       


      So up early this morning and after breakfast we go to visit the Amazing Cave - yes that is what it is called. After this we are taken back to shore and here we are back in Hanoi at the same hotel - which is good as we left our big bags here, we are sad to leave Owen and Vicki the couple we spent yesterday with as they were great company but we will be keeping in touch with them.

  • Sri Lanka cancels landing visa Sri Lanka cancels landing visa for 78 countries

    • From: vietnamsvisa
    • Description:

       

      Based on ‘security considerations’ Sri Lanka cancels landing visa facility to 78 countries. Visitors form these countries could make online applications from September 28 onwards for Colombo to process visas, Daily Mirror reported Monday, citing a SL Immigration Department official.

      The 78 countries are yet to be named and getting online visa prior to arrival will be mandatory from 01 January 2012. Through the process genocidal Colombo aims to differentiate, screen and deny visa to diaspora Eezham Tamils having foreign passports, said diaspora political circles adding that this is another intimidation tactic.

      As property rights and even visiting rights of Eezham Tamils are targeted in subtle ways, only jokers can deny that there is no structural genocide in the island, diaspora circles further said. Even during the height of the genocidal war Sri Lanka has not cancelled the landing visa facility extended to visitors from a number of countries, especially from the West.

      Colombo’s current paranoia at a time when powers and establishments overtly and covertly shield the genocidal State and regime, only shows that Colombo is not worried of the establishments but is worried of the peoples of the world and of the diaspora, said a civil activist in Colombo. On differentiating people of Eezham Tamil origin in issuing visas, New Delhi has already set a model to Colombo.

      There was a time when Eezham Tamils having foreign citizenships and passports were selectively denied visa by Indian diplomatic missions that looked into the country of origin of the applicants. One Indian mission even displayed a notice in its visa office in a Western country where SL-origin diaspora is predominantly Eezham Tamil that the SL origin applicants even if granted with visa will be permitted to land only at a particular airport in India. Tamil diaspora circles think that the decision aims to differentiate visitors of Eezham Tamil origin having foreign passports, in order to deny visa for them.

      Visitors from Singapore and Maldives will continue to get landing visa, since these two countries extend the same facility to Sri Lanka passport holders.

  • Chalong Phuket Thailand July 2 Chalong Phuket Thailand July 2011

    • From: scubafan67
    • Description:

      From Memphis Tennessee USA to Moscow Russia to Singapore to Chalong Phuket Thailand. Ten days in Chalong for scuba diving and sight-seeing.

      (Used www.kayak.com to search for flights) We flew from Memphis to Houston, Houston to Moscow, Moscow to Singapore, Singapore to Phuket. Not really sure of when and how the days and time changed over but we traveled nearly 40 hours and left Memphis on Tuesday and arrive in Phuket on Thursday. We stayed in the airport hotel 6 hours in Singapore and it was more than wonderful to be able to take a shower and lay down completely stretched out after the first airplane trips. (We stayed in the Ambassor Tranist 2 hotel and for $60 we had six hours of a hotel room with a shower, bed, tv and quiet. You do not have to leave the secure airport or recheck bags.) We flew Singapore Airlines and paid extra to be up front in coach so we had extra legroom. It was nice to be able to stand up and stretch but we saw the other seats had footrests and more room than any standard domestic plane so we would probably have been okay in those too. They are constantly bringing food and drinks around, and everyone has their own mini tv with current movie choices, current tv shows, games and even some that help you learn key phrases in many languages. They really go the extra mile to help make the long trip as entertaining and comfortable as possible.

      Sea Bees Diving company has humorOur pickup took us directly to the Sea Bees dive shop which we thought was a little weird but it turns out the hotel is about 2 blocks away so no problem. (We found See Bees thru the recommendation of "Footprint" which is a book that gives local insights on prices and information for dive sites around the world) Since we’d had a chance to rest up at the Singapore airport hotel, we told the dive shop we wanted to start diving the next day. They took us to our hotel, Palm Gardens Resort and we got settled in. (We got a package deal with Sea Bees and Palm Garden Resort) This was low season so of the 10 bungalows, maybe 3 were occupied with guests. The layout was serene and beautiful. Chalong is a busy business district so it isn’t very pretty but Palm Gardens is hidden away in an alley and they have it landscaped and surrounded by trees and plants that make it feel very much like you’re in the tropics. We made fast friends with Oui the property manager and she even is a diver so she went out on one of the days with us. pool at Palm Garden Resort

      We ate a nice breakfast at the resort restaurant because we didn’t know they made breakfast on the boat each morning! Eggs, fruit, rolls, bacon, ham, yogurt.. because you’ve got at least 1 hour boat ride to the closest dive site so you have time to digest before diving. After the first dive, lunch is served and they’ve cooked it on the boat. After the first day of eating on the boat, we would go to the boat wondering both what dives we would do and also what food they would be serving! The Excalibur II can service 30 divers but since this was low season, on a busy day we maybe had 12 divers so there was plenty of space and room. We were completely spoiled and would be hard pressed to be convinced to go during high season now. Shark Point and Koh Dok Mai were our dive sites. Shark Point was great but Koh Dok Mai had a fairly strong current and fairly bad viz. We were worried that the rumors of bad viz in Thailand were true. And they are but it turns out to be a hit or miss thing like a lot of places.

      PICT1771.JPGThey call it “Super Sunday” and have four dives including a night dive. The Phi Phi islands were great but we went back to Koh Dok Mai for the night dive and the current was still strong and the viz was not great so I just did not enjoy it. Night dives so far have not been of the best conditions yet I still keep trying them in hopes that I can enjoy them the way so many do.

       

      inside main temple at Wat ChalongMay 23 – no diving today so in order to “see the town,” we decided to walk the 3k to Wat Chalong. We left in the morning so it wasn’t too bad but it got hot and humid quickly. On the way, we stopped at a 7-11 and saw a lady who’d rigged up a sitting basket on her motorcycle for her poodle. I was really surprised at how many dogs and cats are all around, and how they mostly have collars and seem well taken care of. It was not unusual to see very pampered pups. By the time we got to Wat Chalong temple, I was over heated and had to sit and rest while Wayne walked around and took photos. We just took our time and meandered thru.

      Jungle Safari 4-in-1 with Young Elephant ShowMay 25 - Safari Jungle Tour 4-in-1 adventure included a Young Elephant Show and also a ride on and adult elephant on the Elephant Jungle Trek. We were picked up at our hotel and dropped off when the experience was over. (www.siamsafari.com) It also included a traditional Thai style lunch and some interactive education presentations on rice growing, rubber harvesting and curry cooking. 

       

      Singapore AirportWe had another 6 hour layover in Singapore airport and this time we explored it more. They have free internet stations all over, free calf & foot massagers all over, cushy places to sit or lay down, orchid garden, butterfly garden, sunflower garden and more to pass the time and all inside security at the airport. This was great for the trip home but we were still glad we paid the $60 on the trip in for the room. Having that room just helped us acclemate so much faster and begin enjoying our trip sooner!
