Recently, I joined a group of photographers (about a dozen or so of them) from the Kuala Lumpur Photography Club for a road trip to Ipoh. We set off from Kuala Lumpur on a Sunday morning, scheduling to meet up in Old Town White Coffee situated in Jalan Tun Sambanthan, Ipoh for breakfast before starting out on our photowalk.
The Kuan Yin Temple in Klang (State of Selangor, Malaysia), was built around 1892, and is reputedly one of the oldest temple in Malaysia. It was nearly demolished due to its dilapidated condition caused by extensive termites infestation but was saved by the Sultan of Selangor, who declared it a state heritage site.
The rebuilding of the temple was carried out around the year 2000 and was financed by wealthy chinese (mostly from Klang) and most of the masonry works and carvings were carried out by workmen and artisans brought over from China.
The Cotswolds is an area in south central England, of predominantly rural landscape with rolling hills and picturesque small towns and villages built of cotswold stone, a type of yellow jurassic limestone.

We joined a day tour with VIATOR, departing from Victoria Coach Station, London at about 8.30am. The tour includes lunch and visits to the market towns of Burford, Bourton-on-the-water and Stow-on-the-wold.
Volendam – is a seaside town about an hours drive from Amsterdam. There is a ferry service between Volendam and a nearby island (peninsula). Along the waterfront are many souvenir shops, cafes, restaurants and even a cheese factory. There are also a few stores selling seafood such as herrings (my favourite seafood in the Netherlands).
