For three centuries Polonnaruwa was a royal capital of both the Chola and Sinhalese kingdoms. It is nearly 1000 years old. The monuments are arranged in a reasonably compact garden setting and their development is easy to follow. It is best to explore by bicycle, which you can rent from several places in town.

Daily Photo • INDONESIA – BALI – AROUND BALI WEEK I

Bali is a place with a lot of rice fields, temples, ceremonies and tourists. After some years I came back just to realize that It is truly one of most beautiful islands I ever visited. Tourism is in full swing here and locals quickly cashing in. Prices are up and most temples now requires entrance fee. Still, scenery around you makes up for it  and friendly Bali people contributes for a pleasant stay on this island. It is easy to get around on motorbike so after few weeks of driving I got some pictures to share.

Daily Photo • INDONESIA – SULAWESI

Indonesia has more than 17 thousand islands, one third is left for nature the rest has some sort of human life going on. Every major Island has something new to offer, different cultures scatters through this huge archipelago. There is no way you can visit it all in your lifetime so what to say about 3month visa you get. None the less I will try to do my best trying to visit some of them without too much rushing. And the first island after Java I visited is Sulawesi, bizarre and beautiful, with an incredible diversity of people, cultures and landscapes. Best to explore it on motorbike just driving around stopping in villages taking a rest in shade of strange shaped roofs of traditional houses and chatting with locals.

Moved through Malaysia relatively quickly just visiting Kuala Lumpur, Melaka and Singapore on my way. I am sure I will be back again since there is a lot more to Malaysia than those places. The first thing what I noticed once arrived to KL is diversity of people. Mix of so many cultures. Also KL has two iconic buildings – the Petronas Towers. At dawn people gathering in park to watch sunset and nicely lit skyscrapers surrounding that area.

Located in northern Taiwan, Taipei is the political, economic, financial, and cultural center of the island. It has thriving arts and academic scene and countless modern commercial buildings. Besides the friendly, welcoming nature of Taiwan’s inhabitants, the high level of development created by Taiwan’s economics make Taipei a cosmopolitan city that brings together the traditional and the new. Museums houses the world’s finest collection of art; beautiful temples are the setting for colorful folk festivals. Taipei offers bustling night markets, the 101 tower and streets lined with shops selling brand name products. All together I spend three months in Taiwan and every time I find something new to eat something new to see, something new to experience.
