"Your hair is such a mess" I guess that's what has been said by the lady in pink Saree
Because after that, she unravel my braided hair, combed my hair through until it's smooth and re-braided it.That's the thrill dressed in Saree and mingle with the local people in India. I often being stopped to have a chat with them. Hehehe.
Marischka Prudence - Life Is An Absurd Journey
Maratua Paradise is indeed a paradise. A moment I arrived I just stunned by its beauty. Crystal clear water with white sands at the bottom stretching far away from the coastline, Maratua Paradise is just at the perfect location. Turquoise water is a daily sight during stay on top of this watery paradise. A place I would come back again and again.
Adam & Susan - Pergi Dulu
Georgia, not the one in the States, is surprisingly our favorite destination in 2013. With lots of old churches dotting its fantastic mountainous landscape, Georgia has to be one of the most beautiful countries on earth. The people, despite generally not being able to speak English, display genuine warmth and hospitality that we didn't experience anywhere else in Europe. Because Georgia is a relatively a poor country, it's also cheap to travel around, making it a perfect destination for budget travelers.

In 2013, i had a pleasant and safe trips to: Norway, (revisit) Paris, Portugal, Indonesia (Wakatobi, Flores Overland, Makassar, Bau Bau), Pisa, Cinque Terre, Bulgaria, Macedonia, Kosovo, Albania and Greece. From all of those destinations mentioned, it s hard to choose which one is my favourite as every journey has a different story, however the trip to Norway in winter has a great memories i can't forget.
A good friend referred my name to join the media trip to Norway with Norwegian Seafood Council, it s not only for enjoying the marvellous panorama around Norway, but to see & experience the life of a happy salmons in Hardangervidda - one of Europe's largest vast mountain plateau , and in this trip i had an opportunity to meet a new friends that i consider them now as my new family.

My favourite destination this year has got to be Warsaw in Poland. Although this was the second time I've been there, Warsaw didn't lose its charm. The city is still as vibrant as I remembered it and it was still full of legends and stories that took my breath away. I love the food, the atmosphere and the welcoming smile of the Polish in this town.
Mumun & Vira - Indohoy
My favorite travel destination in 2013 was the Kei Islands, Maluku, at Ohoililir Beach to be exact. It's not only the fact that the beach was perfect with the softest sand I've encountered to date, but it was also other elements of the trip that made if my fav destination this year. The companions were awesome, the food was great, it was so relaxing, and yet we were actually getting paid to do it. It's hard to describe how good the trip was, wait.. it was kinda heavenly!

One of my most memorable experiences in 2013 was watching the Pacu Jawi (cow race) in Batusangkar, West Sumatra. It's exciting and a bit tense to see whether the cow couples reach the end point of the muddy arena or burst out to the viewers! Any possibility could happen in just split seconds, and much of it depends on how obedient the cows are to the rider, who gets them start running by biting one of their tails! To me, the excitement of watching Pacu Jawi is not far off from watching a professional Muay Thai fight!
Bama - What An Amazing World!
I could have picked pristine beaches of Lombok, idyllic small villages of Orchid Island in Taiwan, or magnificent historical monuments in Istanbul as my favorite travel destination this year. However I pick Mount Rinjani instead, not because I had a nice and easy time there but quite the contrary it was the toughest and most challenging thing – both physically and mentally – that I’ve ever done in my life, so far. Beauty can be unforgiving sometimes, and Rinjani proved that just right. A long and arduous 3-day hike was paid off by the breathtaking view of Bali and Sumbawa from the summit of Indonesia’s second highest volcano.
Timothy - Mixed Up Already
My favourite destination in 2013 would be Melbourne where I watched the Australian Open. It was the first time I watched a Grand Slam, and it's in Rod Laver Arena! Who can imagine that I could watch Novak Djokovic played live in front of my eyes? ;-)
Firsta - Discover Your Indonesia
My favourite destination in 2013 is Ubud, Bali, because I got the chance to witness the royal cremation of Puri Agung, from the Ubud royal family. It is so amazing to know that culture is still such a strong part of the local society in Bali.

A couple of elderly were smiling in front of man's greatest erection for a woman, Taj Mahal. With its resources, I nominated India as my fave destination in 2013. In India you can see great building such as Taj Mahal, feel dirty environment in Varanasi, and meet many people including cheater, cheater, and cheater. Magically, the combination of those, had made want to visit India again, and again, and again.

Travel begins with a dream.
We made our kiddos dream come true by visiting Hongkong Disneyland in February 2013. The Disney Parade was really amazing that kiddos had requested to see it twice. I still remember kiddos' happy face when they met their favorite Disney's character during the parade, they were so excited! Now we are ready to make our other travel dreams come true in 2014.
Cumilebay - Perjalanan Tak Berujung
After been waiting for 5 years, I did a trip to Tinabo Island in Takabonerate in 2013. it became my toughest trip with my friends because to reach this place, it took about 15 hours from Makassar (5 hours by car then 2 hours by ship, then 3 hours by car then continue 5 hours by ship).
Takabonerate is the third largest area with cluster of coral reefs. white clean beach with a lot of baby shark, stingray, turtles in the edge of the beach in Tinabo Island and it become an attraction itself.

There are tens thousand temple in Thailand but rarely people know, where was it originally come from? Sukhothai Historical Park in Sukhothai City, 8 hours bus ride from the capital Bangkok, has the answer. This park consist 193 ruins of the first kingdom in Thailand: Sukhothai. Renting a bycycle is the best way exploring the park. The temples lay in greeny landscape dotted by lotus ponds.

Laos is indeed one of the poorest country in Southeast Asia, but its beauty lies in its simplicity. No Starbucks, McDonald's or any other franchise network in sight, which for me that is refreshing. Nature lovers will be thrilled with abundant of unspoiled landscapes from rows of hills, caves and mountains to blue lagoon and turquoise waterfalls. Back in the cities, you'll get this unique vibe as a result of Southeast Asian culture mixed with French influence. Don't forget to ride on the right side of the road.
Wira - Wira Nurmansyah
I love the crystal clear water, powder-white sand, azure bays, world-class diverse coral beauty, endless rain forest, and adorable local people of Raja ampat. This photo is a kid trying to catch a fish with just a string. As she fished in the homeland of fish, she got a lot!
Fahmi Anhar - Destination Anywhere
My favorite destinations for 2013 were the beaches south coast of the island of Bali. Why? Because the trip was not just travelling for fun, but in order to run the project team Save Sharks Indonesia which is observation shark fishing along the beaches on the southern coast of the island of Bali. We aim to collect data for shark rescue project in Indonesia. Let's # SaveSharks!!
Last but not least.....my fave destination
So how about you? Where's your favorite destination in 2013?
