Massage in Bangkok, Thailand

Hey guys, you know what I need now?
A very relax spa or Thai massage!

I know Bangkok means far more than just spas or Thai massage.
Yet, Will you feel so tired after a day-long shopping or a sightseeing tour, tourists?
You will need to have some relax moments to continue your passion and most important, energy!

Ancient healing knowledge passed down over generations, the exotic and tropical surroundings at the city’s luxurious spas, lots of sunshine and legendary Thai hospitality provide the ideal setting for the continuous pursuit of inner and outer beauty. Bangkok would be the best place to look for your choices of spas and massage.

What’s Thai massage?
Thai massage focuses on circulation and pressure points, promoting internal health as well as muscular flexibility. Treatment often begins with the feet and gradually moves upwards towards the head.

Hoping to beam myself to bangkok right now and have a 2hours massage, from top of head down to my feet.
Guys, it’s not too long! It’s just perfect!

Where is it???????? Gili Islands!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!<3

the Travelling Mudskippers

We apologize for the long wait for another post from us.  No good excuses, we’ve just been having too much fun to sit down and write….  We’ll figure out the balance between experiencing and writing one of these days!  Pictures continue to be problematic (this one photo took about 40 minutes to upload!), so please follow us on Facebook and Instagram for more pictures and more timely updates on our travels.

The great difference between voyages rests not with the ships, but with the people you meet on them.  ~ Amelia E. Barr

We recently visited the Gili Islands in Lombok, Indonesia.  It seems, from our conversations with several travellers, few people make it to all three and, due to time restraints, are forced to decide on just one.  Choosing which one can be tough. So we thought we’d help out with our admittedly very biased review of all three.

Mt Wutai, Shanxi, China

Sorry guys… not feeling well so haven’t updated my blog agesssss long!!!

Patients need some places quiet so that they can have a rest…

Well, I suggest you Mt Wutai, which is in Shanxi Province…

Mount Wǔtái is one of the Four Sacred Mountains in Chinese Buddhism.  It is surrounded by a cluster of flat-topped peaks (North, South, East, West, and Central). The North peak, called Beitai Ding or Yedou Feng, is the highest (3.061 m), and indeed the highest point in northern China.The site is home to many of China’s most important monasteries and temples. Mount Wutai host over 53 sacred monasteries, and they were inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2009.

Spend couple days in Mt Wutai, you can relax and peace your heart. Try walk through the five peaks. Meanwhile, go different temples like Tayuan Temple, Manjusri Temple. You will re-love yourself and life.

  • TAYUAN SI – This temple is dominated by its distinctive Ming Dynasty and Tibetan-styled Great White Dagoba (Da Bai Ta), which rises to a height  of 190ft (50m). The Dagoba is topped with a bronze cap with bells.
  • LUOHOU SI – Inside the temple is a wooden lotus flower decorated with eight wooden petals that, when rotated, open to reveal carved Buddhist figures.
  • XIAN TONG SI – The highlight of this, the largest temple on Wutai Shan, is the Bronze Hall. Made entirely from metal, it is decorated with thousands of small Buddhist figures.
  • PUSA DING – To reach Pusa Ding (Bodhisattva Summit), a temple complex dating from the Ming and Qing dynasties, there is a climb of 108 steps. A significant number – it is the number of beads on a Buddhist rosary.
  • QI FO SI – This temple is not visited as much as the other more famous temples and as such will be a quitere spot to take in the scenery. It also has a white stone pagoda.

The highest temperature is in summer time during Jul to Aug, which is about 8 degrees. the lowest could be -18 degrees.
You can choose to stay overnight in the temple, about RMB 40-50 (AUD8-10), providing with vege meal or other home-stay/ farm stay. They are also very cheap and able to provide meal 😀

See if you have luck to see our wild legend fox during days.
