    Where are you going for holidays this year?

    Hong Kong's a place I'm confirmed going for a short few days trip.

    Still thinking of another place to go since I have like 15 days of leave in total.

    How about you guys, where are you guys/gals planning on traveling to?

    if go london, use it as a base to go other parts of uk

    unless you like high shopping, else once you've walked the thames area and all the monopoly board streets, there is nothing

    ok maybe if you stay there too long you'll feel that way

    might be going to denmark/sweden/norway , see how

    if that doesn't materialise, probably a short trip to cornwall, along with some random place in southeast asia, hopefully vietnam, but from what i hear the weather in summer is not quite so.. good

    Actually, London is only a small part of the UK. You should try Scotland and wales. Cornwall is real nice too. The view of the sea is amazing. Even in London, there are unexplored places that the non native stay, which has many photo opportunities. You can also try the other towns in the UK, like bath, cambridge, oxford etc. I am staying in Guildford now, and there are plenty of architecture, scenery and travel shots to take. Its spring now, and the flowers growing in the field is vibrant with colours. I don't think I even did justice for them...sigh!

    Vietnam is a good place. I was at HCM during May day in 2006. Its a great place to visit. Its pretty sunny, but its bearable. Staying in Singapore helps...

    Let me know if you guys are really keen to come to Scandinavia. If you like nature and wilderness, you will definitely like northern Sweden and Norway. My family spent 3 whole weeks fishing from Ostersund (Sweden) to Namsos (Norway) last summer and we really enjoyed it.

    I should be able to provide information on these places.

    Aiya, If I got London is following people there. So I doubt I get to visit else where. But yea, will be shopping in London alone in the day most likely. Well, not confirmed yet

    of course; but one must also remember that there are parts of london which are frankly, more shady than the rest; for whatever reason, so don't anyhow walk walk, it is not singapore.

    nah, what i heard and read is that vietnam is rainy in the jun/aug period

    Unfortunately, wife and myself won't be able to take a long holiday.... she has to work on a big project and on top of that, our son is only 3 months old so can't bring him anywhere yet.

    But heading to Hua Hin (for 4 nights) then to BKK (for 2 nights) just to take a break..... Will check back to this thread in a year.

    For someone working overseas, a vacation means coming back to Singapore

    I'll probably visit the Singapore Zoo and the Jurong Bird Park....
    Pictures always should have a special story behind it or a special meaning to the photographer.
