Besides enjoying sunshine on the beaches, we set a higher priority in exploring the tradition and culture of this over-commercialized island.

The Northern part of Vietnam offers fantastic photography opportunities. Sapa and Halong Bay are among the two best places for visiting. It is also fun to explore Hanoi in the old quarter.

A short trip in Hong Kong and Macau. So many places to go, so little time ...

Deepavali is the festival of light. Throughout the world all Hindus celebrate Deepawali with great pomp and enthusiasm. This is the great festival honouring Mother Lakshmi (goddess of wealth).

The southeastern Tibet is a majestic and mysterious highland area where is not only known for its spectacular landscape, but also has an ancient history and esoteric religious tradition which have made local culture all the more fascinating and awe-inspiring.

During the month of August over 10,000 people will cross high passes of more than 4000 m (13123 ft) by foot, horse and jeep to make their way to Nakchu Racecourse, to run their horses, eat, drink and enjoy themselves during the annual horse festival holiday.

Tibet (2/5) - Shotun Festival at Drepung and Sera Monasteries
The traditional Shotun festival (Yogurt Festival) marks the coming of spring and a bountiful harvest. The centrepiece of the cultural and religious event is the brief unveiling of a giant portrait of Buddha beside a monastery outside Lhasa.
