The Harbourview Hotel, Hong Kong 香港灣景國際

The Harbourview Hotel, Hong Kong 香港灣景國際

The hotel is a good location from which to explore Hong Kong as it is located on the island, and is close to the harbour for the ferry, and relatively close to the metro system. During my stay it was difficult to get to and from the hotel due to major roads. There is also […]

Tune Hotel, KLIA2, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

By on August 23, 2015 in Malaysia with 0 Comments

On my way to the Cameron Highlands I needed to spend a night at Kuala Lumpur airport because by the time my flight from Langkawi had landed it was too late to drive to the Highlands (plus, I wanted to do the drive in daylight as I had heard the last hour or so in […]

Siloso Beach Resort, Sentosa, Singapore

Not overly impressed with Siloso Beach Resort, Sentosa, Singapore. It does have a good location as it is just back from the beach. My room and bathroom were not the cleanest I have seen, and I certainly would expect better in Singapore. The shower was terrible with no hot water and wall shower attachment didn’t […]

Dinner on the Vintage Luxury Hotel, Yangon (Rangoon), Myanmar (Burma)

By on April 1, 2015 in Myanmar/Burma with 0 Comments

Had a very pleasant Rogan Josh and a couple of pints of local beer on the Vintage Luxury Hotel. The curry was mutton cooked on the bone. This is a common way of cooking in SE Asia, that is, things like chicken and mutton (and yes, real mutton, not lamb) curries, and other dishes, are […]

The  (Rangoon), Myanmar (Burma) is in distress! Send help (not really)… Or are they just being rude?

I was stuck at the corner of Bogyoke Aung San Road and Sule Pagoda Road in Yangon (Rangoon) waiting for the traffic lights to change and looking at the Sule Shangri-La (formerly Traders) opposite when I noticed something odd… Yep, the British flag (also called the Union Flag, and incorrectly the Union Jack (it is […]

A look round the Vintage Luxury Yacht Hotel, Yangon (Rangoon), Myanmar (Burma)

I can’t make up my mind about this place. It is kind of fun staying on a former luxury yacht that has been converted to a 1920s theme, and yet at the same time it is all a bit weird. And, there is an odd smell in my room, the aircon is not great, and […]

Breakfast on the Vintage Luxury Yacht Hotel, Yangon (Rangoon), Myanmar (Burma)

By on March 31, 2015 in Myanmar/Burma with 0 Comments

Breakfast on the Vintage Luxury Yacht Hotel was fairly standard with a good range of food. They managed to serve the best cup of tea I’ve had on this trip. It came in a pot and was hot. The ship/yacht/boat is rather odd. There is no one here! There must be more staff than guests. […]

Vintage Luxury Yacht Hotel, Yangon (Rangoon), Myanmar (Burma)

By on March 30, 2015 in Myanmar/Burma with 0 Comments

Arrived at the Vintage Luxury Yacht Hotel. The place is a little tucked away down a small back road in the port area. To get to the hotel you pass by a pagoda and then down through a market and a small carpark. The hotel is a decommissioned former luxury yacht/boat/ship that is still floating, […]

Glass of orange juice upon arrival, and after about 10 minutes some fruit and more juice arrived in my room. All very pleasant… FourSquare: Hotel Mandalay If you have enjoyed this […]

Back at the RH Hotel, Sibu, Sarawak, Malaysia

I’m back at the RH Hotel in Sibu, which is where I stayed last year (see The RH Hotel in Sibu, Sarawak, Malaysia). The place hasn’t changed. Checkin was painfully slow, and the WiFi still doesn’t work in the rooms. One weird thing. I think I am in the same room as on my last […]
