The Valley of the Kings in Petra Jordan taken with a few willing talents in the foreground. Petra is so huge you need an entire day or two just to fully explore this beautiful UNESCO World Heritage Site. Due to my limited time here I managed to do it in just one full day but if I had an extra day I would have had more opportunities to take amazing photos of Petra. My recommendation is to visit Petra and Jordan in the cooler months like now till Feb. One thing I can promise is that you will never regret your trip here. . . . . . #petra #jordan #visitjordan #shareyourjordan #myjordan #travel #unesco . . .
This is just how big is the Treasury in Petra is. The massive historical structure is carved entirely out of a mountainside that is jaw dropping and so very unique. Petra is definitely one of the bucket list places on earth that every traveler should visit in Jordan. . . . . . #petra #visitjordan #gojordan #shareyourjordan #travel . . .
Underwater photography at Arborek Dive Site in Raja Ampat West Papua. If you look carefully there's a diver in there somewhere among the thousands of fish. I'm not much of an underwater photographer but when the opportunity arises I make do with what I have. This photo was shot with a GoPro Hero 3 but the outcome was quite interesting. . . . . . #rajaampat #arborek #travel #wonderfulindonesia #explorewonderfulindonesia#scubadiving #tripofwonders . . .
I took this photo of Angkor Wat with my first digital camera in 2004. That was 13 years ago when visiting Siem Reap was such a breeze. I still remember the place was serene peaceful and quiet minus the hoards of tourist that you will encounter nowadays. It was pure joy waking around the temple grounds and experiencing one of the most beautiful temples in earth. It has been that long since I last visited here and perhaps it is time to make another trip here to see what has changed. . . . . . #angkorwat #siemreap #angkor #travel #cambodia . . .

Some of the best moments of my life is when I visit totally new destinations that is least visited by many people. The harder the place to get to the better the experience. Raja Ampat in West Papua is one of those incredible places as in this photo. It's also a joy to not bombard you social media feed with non-stop photos yelling to the world "Look I'm Here". My style is where I prefer to just post a few photos live and keep the rest for my #throwback or #latergram photos. However everyone has their own objectives in life and its entirely up to them. . . . . . #rajaampat #trioofwonders #explorewonderfulindonesia #travel #ndonesia . . .

Koka Beach in Maumere Flores. If you've never been to a deserted and beautiful beach this is one of them. Maumere is on the other end of Labuan Bajo and is one of the lesser visited places in Flores NTT. For the travel explorer this is one of the naturally beautiful places where you will find peace and beauty combined together. . . . . . #maumere #flores #travel #visitflores #beach #wonderfulindonesia . . .
One of the best feelings in the world is when you are very appreciated for your work & contribution over the years. Last weekend I was over the moon when I attended the Sarawak Hornbill Tourism Awards where my article won 'Best Tourism Article Online for Sarawak'. Huge thanks & appreciation goes out to the Sarawak Tourism industry my friends acquaintances and my followers on Social Media. To be very honest I use Social Media to share my experiences but I'm still a strong believer in "The article is mightier than the Followers". . . . . . #sarawak #hornbillawards #borneo #malaysia #shta2017 #travel #MalaysiaTrulyAsia . . .

Dawn at Borobudur Temple brings out a different kind of experience for visitors and photographers. Known as one of the most beautiful historical temples in the world Candi Borobudur is a must visit for anyone heading to Jogjakarta in the center of Jawa Island. A good tip is to visit on a weekday. . . . . . #borobudur #jawa #travel #indonesia #trioofwonders #wonderfulindonesia . . .
What I did in Raja Ampat. Known as one of the best scuba diving places on earth this photo is just one of the beautiful underwater photos I took with a GoPro.

If you've been to Bali in the 90's this is what Dreamland Beach used to look like before the massive changes. This #blastfromthepast photo was taken on one of my 1st ever trips to Bali when it was still acceptable original and beautiful. Times have changed so much but on a good side it caters to modernization and today's travel & tourism lifestyles. Honestly I kind of miss the old #Bali when things were much more simple and easy. . . . . . #wonderfulindonesia #travel #indonesia #throwback . . .
How to fit the world's tallest building into instagram: 1. Stand very far and take a photo. 2. Stand close-by and just photograph what you can like what I did in this photo. Honestly from any angle the Burj Khalifa is such an amazing building especially when you look at the details involved. Seeing the tallest building in the world has been on my bucket list and ticked off early 2017. Seeing it is one thing but to actually go in and go to the top is another incredible experience. . . . . . #dubai #burjkhalifa #travel #throwback #uae #building . . .
View of Gardens by the Bay from Marina Bay Sands in Singapore. If there is one place to stay for a first timer to Singapore the @marinabaysands is the place to check in. The upper floor views are well worth it as you can see from this photo I took when I stayed here a few years ago. For city lovers you should see the view from the other side of the resort. And don't forget to check out the incredible infinity pool on top of the resort. . . . . . #singapore #marinabaysands #visitsingapore #travel #throwback . . .
When you visit Qatar one of the must do things is to take a desert safari in a 4WD. The thrill of driving in the desert is totally one of a kind especially when the vehicle slides down the sand dunes. This from of dune bashing is one of the ultimate adventures that anyone visiting Qatar should try. . . . . . #qatar #desert #dunebashing #travel #visitqatar #doha #travelenjoyrespect . . .
The best thing about scuba diving is that you are in your own world. No chatter no phones nothing but you and the amazing underwater world. This photo of me was taken during one of my dives at Alor Island Indonesia by @marischkaprue during a trip there in September 2017. . . . . . #wonderfulindonesia #diving #alorisland #scubadiving #travel #tripofwonders . . .
This island landscape photo was taken at Gili Lawa Darat Island the sister to the famous Padar Island at the Komodo National Park in East Nusa Tenggara #Flores. Usually people will post photos of the famous Gili Lawa peak but I chose to feature the barren hillside of the island as we were #trekking back to the boat. Can you spot the people trekking in this photo? . . . . . #gililawa #komodo #travel #wonderfulindonesia #trioofwonders . . .

I first looked at the Tokyo Tower in 1990 and looked at it again in 2017. It's been an amazing 27 years since stepping foot in Tokyo and the tower still looks majestic like the 1st time seeing it. In that 27 years I've been in and out of Tokyo & Japan numerous times but this beautiful red tower is probably my most iconic memory of Tokyo. My last visit in Feb 2017 I was staying at the Royal Shiodome Hotel and looking out of my room window the Tokyo Tower was part of my view with the Mount Fuji background. One word - Epic. . . . . . #tokyo #tokyo2020 #japan #visittokyo #ig_japan #travel . . .

The Tree of Life? Nope this one was randomly taken while exploring Maliau Basin Conservation Area also known as Sabah's Lost World. Perfect for those seeking pure nature wildlife and adventure Maliau Basin is known to be the most least explored places in Sabah which is extremely rich with flora & fauna. . . . . . #sabah #maliaubasin #borneo #travel #nature . . .
Off the city of Makassar in South Sulawesi you can find a series of beautiful islands for a day trip snorkeling or even scuba diving. This photo was taken at one of the islands called Kodingaring Keke Island which is stunningly beautiful. There are no resorts restaurants or shops here except for a 3 level look out tower. This is pure island life at its best. . . . . . #makassar #sulawesi #travel #wonderfulindonesia #island #tripofwonders . . .
Tokyo never fails to impress as it gears up for #Tokyo2020 where millions of people are coming to visit for the Summer Olympics. In this photo a cleverly angled peek of the Asakusa temple minus the thousands of people shows the serenity and beauty of the shrines on a clear day. . . . . . #tokyo #japan #visitjapan #visittokyo #asakusa #japanese #travel . . .
If you are travelling to Qatar make sure you take some time to explore the futuristic city of Doha. Skyscrapers & buildings of all shapes and sizes will impress just about anyone here and be careful not to look up too long or you will end up like me having a sore neck. Doha is truly an amazing city worth exploring on foot. . . . . . #doha #qatar #visitqatar #skyscrapers #buildings #travel #cityscape . . .
Kuching is also part of the street art movement in Malaysia. Exploring the older part of Kuching city will uncover some of the beautiful & creative street art murals done by local Sarawakian artist. Next time you're in Kuching take some time to walk around the old part of town. . . . . . #kuching #sarawak #travel #streetart #borneo . . .
