Sorry the late reply, if you're still there:

I enjoyed Singapore Zoo very much. Also Sentosa ofc, check Sentosa Luge for example, also there's a show there called Crane Dance which is a nice finish after a full day on the island :) On Sentosa you could also visit the hotel where Trump and Jong-Un met. Then you could drink Singapore Sling at the skybar on Marina Bay Sands (or at Raffles if done renovating). Also take a trip to Southern Ridges Park (quite close to Harbourfront) and walk through the park between the tree's canopies. Boomer might have more ideas as he has lived there!

It was pretty fucking max. We spent 4 days in Singapore, 9 days at Bali and 2 days at Nusa Penida.
I've never been to Asia, so many things (at least at Bali) suprised me. South of Bali is stupidly overcrowded with turists and with locas who want to take money away from you. So we rented a scooter, drove away and the rest of our trip was amazing. Street food, waterfalls, rice fields, mountains, snorcheling with fishes, temples, beaches, it was sik great.
Few bad things about Bali: bargaining is stupid. I like set prices. Driving at the left side of the road with other scooters, cars, buses and trucks feels ultra super unsafe. Like wtf, I am shivering a bit now, coz of the thought about how unsafe it was. But there was no other choise, I guess.

Anyways, now my list looks like this:
Czech Republic
Slovakia
Germany
Switzerland
Austria
United Kingdom
Italy
France
Croatia
Slovenia
Greece
USA
Belgium
Monaco
Lichtenstein
Hungary
Poland
Finland
Latvia
Denmark
Netherlands
Ukraine
Singapore
Indonesia

Glad you enjoyed bali. Sorry on behalf of Aus for the huge proportion of annoying tourists from here.

Driving on left side of road is norm for a lot of places (eg. a large chunk of asia), so there's nothing unsafe about it. Feels wrong for me to drive on right side of road :) The rest of the driving status in south-east asia is unsafe though - people ignoring safety measures and not driving sensibly.

Re: Bargaining, yeah it's annoying when you're used to set prices, but it's a huge part of market culture in asia. They know the price they initially are asking, and they know where they will drop down to, and it's just a matter of being good with words/having good banter to get them there quickly. For them, it's started as easy way to make a bit more money from lazy or stupid tourists, but it's now huge ingrained part of their culture, and many balinese or other SEA market people find it a bit disrespectful when people won't engage with bartering with them. Remember that they are too used to Australian tourists who are usually happy to have some fun with them and share a couple of laughs.

You two look good together.

ty, mans ))

Haru: driving on the left side was oke. Ii was even quite refreshing experience for me, when we were driving in the countryside with minimum trafic. But the trafic in city was super-scary. I am not used to buses driving few centimeters away from me with nothing inbetween us. Also crossroads are stupid: whoever is honging the most goes first - at least that's what it felt like to me. But maybe it only felt like that to me (us), because I drive car all the time, but I am not used to driving a little scooter.

Ye it can be funny how often mans honk in these places. They use it more as a "hi I here don't hit me" than an abrupt signal to grab attention

Went to Egypt with GF and another couple for 8 days holiday. There was a decent offer (~550EUR, flight tickets, all inclusive resort - local alcohol included) from local travel agency and our friends asked us if we'd go with with them and we were like: "sure, why not". It was the first time for me in Africa and first time in resort. All we did was eating, drinking cocktails, swimming and sunbathing. Oh and driving for 3 hour in rocky desert on ATV. That was the best part for my.

will go again to lay on my ass in resort for sure when I am 70 yo, mebe sooner. But active holiday is more fun for my now, obv

Yeah, I agree. But that could still be the reason why he didn't put it earlier.

Sweden (1988, many times)
Portugal (1993)
Greece (1999)
Norway (2003, 2008, 2009)

China (2018)
Israel (2018)
Jordan (2018)
New Zealand (2019)
Singapore (2019)
Vietnam (2019)

Not counted but semi:

Åland (2006)
Holy See (2013)
Gibraltar (2015)
Korea DMZ (2018)
Palestine (2018)
Jerusalem (2018)

Airports are not very interesting but at least:

Hong Kong (2019)
Australia (2019)
Indonesia (2019)

Next? Maybe USA, China/Taiwan or Greece/Balkan. I try to travel to places which can teach me something new and relevant. USA and China are obvious in that respect and Greece (the ancient version) because I'm living spartan lifestyle today + the famous philosophers. If girl happens, then maybe Nordic-Baltic road trip. I've driven car in 17 countries now - beat that!
