Exploring Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Looking out from Menara Kuala Lumpur’s observation deck, 276 metres above the Malaysia's buggest city, I’m surprised to learn that KL, the abbreviation by which locals know this conurbation, was awarded city status as recently as 1972. With the sun beginning to set, I’m at a prime location to appreciate this dynamic city’s evening skyline.

The Bandarban Hills of Bangladesh

A two hour drive south-east of the bustling commercial hub and busy seaport of Chittagong, the Bandarban Hills begin their rise above the Bangladeshi plains. Characterised by dense jungle, the hills are the home to 13 tribal groups and roll on beyond the Bangladesh-Myanmar border.

Things to do in Glasgow, Scotland

Some people might argue the city is reinventing itself, distancing itself from its industrial heritage, but others will tell you that the vibe in this city of almost 600,000 inhabitants has long been buoyant and the fact that the wider world is finding out what Glasgow has to offer is long overdue. Head out to one of the hip bars, cafes or restaurants of the centrally situated Merchant City district and you may also hear locals tell you the fact Glasgow was named both the 1990 European Capital of Culture and the United Kingdom’s City of Architecture and Design in 1999.
