My Travel Footprints in Asia (2015 - Present)

This is a record of my travels in Asia — day trips and business trips excluded. All my journeys and travel routes were recorded with iPackTravel mobile app (iOS only), which I developed to track my travel destinations — download it free!

The footprints map above was created using the "My Footprints" function in the iPackTravel app.

I have not been travelling far and wide than I wanted to be, but it is a matter of what I want to achieve more than reaching the far corners. Nevertheless, I will still want to see the whole world in my lifetime. I will keep building this list with my journeys to see the world that I live in.

— YEAR 2020 —

I have just missed the window (June to August) to see the "blue tears" in the Matsu Islands of Taiwan. As of August 2020, I have 27 days of annual leaves and yet there is no place that I can travel to due to the COVID-19 pandemic. And I'm suppose to clear all the leaves by end of this year...

So, I made two plans:

Plan 1: A minimum 2-days staycation somewhere far from my place. To me, 1-day staycation is a waste of time.

Plan 2: Take 1 day leave every week and go around Singapore to check out interesting places that I have not been to yet and also to try the food at Michelin-awarded food stalls and restaurants. I have already started the ball rolling using Michelin Singapore Guide 2019 as reference. #MichelinFoodHunt #Michelin2019
