Hotel at a glance

Guests arrive at a resort amidst green surroundings, as the resort’s name would suggest. Spired roof buildings, reminiscent of traditional Thai-style architecture, house guests in the comfort of air conditioning and crisp sheets. Outside in the tropical Krabi sun, lounging men and women relax on deck chairs as classic Singha beer is poured into chilled glasses or gulped straight from the bottle at the pool bar.

  • Sink into the calming waters of any one of the two outdoor swimming pools of the hotel and while away time floating about.
  • Thai hands, elbows, and feet stretch limbs, crack bones, and unknot muscles using Thai massage techniques at the spa.
  • Boredom from looking at lush greenery can be remedied by taking a 10-minute walk down to Krabi’s famed Ao Nang and Nopparat Thara beaches for a dash of sun, sand, and sea.

Langkawi, Malaysia: What to see and do

Taking its inspiration from both the earth and skies, the name ‘Langkawi’ is commonly thought to have arisen due to the profusion of Lang Merah eagles on the island, along with the abundance of marble – kawi in Sanskrit – found within its confines. Having come under both British and Thai rule during its lifetime, the influences of the latter remain apparent in both the local culture, and the cuisine that feeds it. The post-war era saw an influx of pirate activity, with the archipelago’s dense foliage providing nooks and crannies with which to seek refuge.

Legs aside, wanderers traverse the circumference of the island via bicycles, taxis, rented cars, and the occasional water buffalo – emblematic of the idyllic village life that juxtaposes itself against the urban façade of tourist-laden sites. Shopping malls abound in Kuah, amongst other destinations, with the establishment of Langkawi’s duty-free status in 1987.

Cable car rides proffer a glimpse of murky jungles and cascading waterfalls like the Telaga Tujuh in Gunung Mat Cincang, along with the chance to observe a menagerie of flora and fauna within the confines of the UNESCO-declared Geopark, where Palaeozoic sedimentary sequences reveal themselves amongst the agglomeration of mangroves, tidal flats, and estuaries.

Amateur historians revel in the Makam Mahsuri, the tomb of a maiden who cursed the island for seven generations after being executed for infidelity. Evidence of the malediction is said to lie in Padang Matsirat, where burnt grains of rice still reside almost two hundred years after angry villagers led a revolt against the Siamese. Less malicious locales allure from afar; waves ebbing like a heartbeat against the dazzling sands of Pantai Cenang, Pantai Kok, and Pantai Tengah.

Siem Reap, Cambodia: What to see and do

The city of Siem Reap is popularly known as the ‘Gateway to Angkor’ as most visitors choose the town as a base to explore the ruins of Angkor and its surrounding attractions. Although the temples are a shadow of its former glorious Khmer Empire days, they are still a sight to behold; myth and history are etched into the stone structures that chronicle the religious beliefs and legacy of an ancient civilisation. The prized jewels of the UNESCO World Heritage Site are Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom, and it is worth waking up before dawn to climb up the steps of these monuments and see the rising sun tint the landscape with hues of gold.

Siem Reap has more to offer besides age-old temples. In the town area, you can visit the Angkor National Museum as a prelude to your trip to the Angkor Archaeological park, or drop by Angkor Silk Farm to see how silk worms are cultivated and silk-weaving techniques. It is possible to cover the town on foot but transportation services are readily available to shuttle you from one location to another. Familiarise yourself with the flavours unique to this region at a restaurant specialising in Khmer cuisine, which focuses on fresh ingredients, simplicity, and aromatic herbs. Some of these venues stage Apsara dance performances for diners, a classical dance performed by women dressed in elaborate costumes and golden headdresses that tell a tale through fluid movements and facial expressions. About half an hour away towards the southern outskirts of the city is the vast expanse of water that is Tonle Sap Lake, the largest freshwater lake in Southeast Asia. Go for a boat tour that takes you past floating villages and fishermen hard at work, while trips to the wildlife reserve and flooded forests bring you up-close to nature and its inhabitants.

Malacca: Historical Enchanter

Travel back in history to what was once the East’s more formidable city of influence and one of South-East Asia’s UNESCO Heritage Site that is Malacca. What began as a quiet fishing village quickly became the central trading ground for Asian and European merchants under the rule of its first sultan, Parameswara. Its heritage as an international port is deeply etched into the architecture, food, and people that make this state home. One of the artifacts left behind is Dutch Square. Coloured in deep dark maroon, what used to be an administrative building for the Dutch colonisers is now the main town square that graces many a greeting card and tourist photograph. Dutch Square is but the tip of the iceberg that is Melaka’s architectural heritage; there’s Fortaleza de Malaca, a Portuguese fort; Bastion House that once served as a British bank; and the Baba Nyonya Peranakan Museum housed in an actual Peranakan heritage home.

Jonker Street is another favourite and is host to the ever popular Jonker Walk Night Market during Fridays and Saturdays, though when bathed in the harsh light of the weekday is more known for its aged yet nostalgically picturesque pre-war shop houses. Get a mouthful of history with samples of local cuisine, the front-runner being Baba-Nyonya food. Dishes that were once made in the confines of grandmothers’ kitchens have now become eponymous with the city’s fusion flair, along with Portuguese-Eurasian cuisine which one may find at the Portuguese Settlement, home to the descendants of former Portuguese colonisers.

Transporting you a century back with her colonial legacy which was influenced by the Portuguese, Dutch, and British, a port-city tour around the surviving building remnants brings you up close to the enduring reminder of the power wrests which keeps Malacca in the more dynamic sections of the ancient Malay annals.
