5 Amazing Hikes Around The World

It’s a great way to see a different side of the destination that you’re in, and most times, you’ll not only be rewarded with spectacular views of lush flora and various kinds of fauna, but also have a bird’s eye view over the landscape of the region that you’re in.

If exploring tracks sounds like something you’d enjoy, have a look at these 5 amazing trails around the world that you should add to your to-hike list!

1. Lion’s Head Summit, Cape Town

One of the most spectacular hikes in the southern hemisphere can be found in Cape Town. The majestic Lion’s Head Mountain, which sits in the famous Table Mountain National Park, towers high above South Africa’s capital and its surrounds. Those who make it to the summit will be rewarded with spectacular views – including panoramas of Table Bay, the Atlantic Ocean, and the 12 Apostles Mountain Range. Although its peak sits 669 metres above sea level, the hike itself is relatively short, lasting around 2 hours, making it a wildly popular choice for nature and hiking enthusiasts. It’s also extremely Instagram-worthy at the top, so bring along your cameras and snap away!


2. Runyon Canyon Park, Los Angeles

You might be intending to visit Los Angeles for the glitz and glamour, but if you’d like to spend a day exploring the great outdoors in this bustling metropolis, consider adding Runyon Canyon Park to your itinerary. This huge park is located in Hollywood, and features three main trails: Runyon Canyon Fire Road, East Ridge Trail, and Western High Way Trail. If you’re looking for a classic hike which allows you to see an alternative view of some of California’s most popular sights including Griffith Park, the Hollywood Sign, and even the Pacific Ocean in the far distance, choose the 4.3km-long East Ridge Trail. It’s of moderate intensity and is a great way to spend a day on the West Coast!


3. Mount Batur, Bali

Plan on adding Mount Batur to your list of must-hikes if you’re into geology. It’s an active volcano that sits at the centre of two calderas and is only a 2-hour drive away from central Bali, making it a great option for those who are visiting the popular beach destination. Most people who choose to climb this volcano do so starting at 2am, so that they’ll make it to the top before sunrise – and this is for good reason. As daybreak arrives and the orange glow of the sun starts to cast its light, you’re likely to find yourself standing high above a sea of clouds, with Mount Agung, another nearby volcano, as a backdrop. The views here are spectacular, so plan to spend some time taking in the vistas before making your way back down!


4. Bukhansan National Park, Seoul

If you’re both a nature lover and an avid foodie, visit Seoul for the best of both worlds. Here, you can visit Bukhansan National Park, which offers a variety of tracks. The most popular of all is the 8km-long Bukhansanseong Course that takes hikers up to Baegundae Peak, which sits some 836.5m above sea level. This trail is not for the faint-hearted, as the last part of the course encompasses a steep incline that involves climbing while holding on to ropes. But those who persevere will be rewarded with sweeping views of Seoul, as well as large granite peaks that are found at the summit. Once you’re done with this challenging hike, treat yourself to some delicious Korean food in the city!


5. Lamington National Park, Gold Coast

Credits: z.___.o.___.e

Hiking enthusiasts should consider spending a few days in Lamington National Park, which is located 110km away from Gold Coast. This 225-million-year-old park has claimed a spot as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is home to lush rainforests, ancient trees, stunning waterfalls, brightly coloured birds, and more than 160km of hiking trails of varying difficulty levels, making it a great place for those who love to be out and about in nature. For an unforgettable adventure, choose to go on the 4.6km path that takes you to Morans Falls: a waterfall in the foreground, with sweeping mountain ranges in the back, and be prepared for a stunning vista like no other.

Scoot Off To Explore These 5 Cities In 2023

Besides visiting popular tourist hotspots all around the world, why not consider exploring destinations that are not as well-known, but still filled with hidden gems that have yet to be discovered by most travellers around the globe?

Seek out new adventures by visiting one of these 5 destinations, and you may be surprised by what you find.


1. Jeju, South Korea

Credits: kwanoo_j

Want to see a different side of South Korea? A great place to visit is Jeju – it has a mild sub-tropical climate, which makes it perfect for those who are looking to be out and about in nature. Spend time hiking Hallasan or Seongsan Ilchulbong that rises straight out of the sea, then discover the many waterfalls that dot the island. For something a little more relaxing, visit one of the many beachside cafes, or stay in a cottage-style holiday home that is made of black lava rock. If you’re into flowers, aim to visit in the spring, when the island will be covered in a sea of pink cherry blossom trees and yellow canola fields.


2. Yogyakarta, Indonesia

Credits: oneoceanaway_

Yogyakarta is a treasure trove of culture and heritage. Those who visit this city usually spend time exploring the grounds Borobudur, which is located about 40km away from the city. This famous Buddhist temple, which has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, features a huge structure that cannot be missed. There are three tiers: a pyramidal base at the bottom, three circular platforms in the middle, and a monumental stupa that sits at the top. But that’s not all – there are also 72 openwork stupas, and each contains a statue of the Buddha. For an experience that you’ll never forget, aim to arrive at 5am, and watch as the sun rises over the surrounding landscape.


3. Guangzhou, China

Credits: tatiana_kurdyants

Visit Guangzhou in Southern China, and you’ll find a bustling port city that’s built on the banks of the Pearl River. It’s known for delicious Cantonese cuisine as well as notable structures; some of the latter include the Guangzhou Opera House as well as the famous Canton Tower, a 604-metre tall skyscraper that resembles a thin hourglass. Hop on a high-speed lift to the outdoor observation deck and you’ll soon find yourself overlooking the cityscape. For a greater way to take in the panoramic views, hop on one of the sixteen “crystal” passenger cars that travel on a track that’s built at the edge of the roof. Warning: this activity is not for the faint-hearted.

4. Berlin, Germany

Credits: zerletti

Vibrant culture, delightful street food, hipster boutique outlets, and a world-class party scene – these are some of the things that Berlin is best known for. It is also a great place to visit if you’re into iconic architecture. At the top of this list is the Brandenburg Gate, a monument and a sandstone gate in the heart of the city. Although it used to be a memorial of division when the Berlin Wall was constructed, these days, it is a national symbol of peace and unity – so if you’re in this city, make time to visit this landmark, before seeing the rest of Germany’s atmospheric capital!


5. Sapporo, Japan

Credits: suparuj

Mention Japan and metropolitan cities like Tokyo and Osaka come to mind. But Sapporo, in the northern island of Hokkaido, is equally fascinating. Given its latitude, its great as a winter getaway – think world-class ski resorts, snow festivals featuring gigantic ice sculptures, and more. That said, this destination is no less spectacular in the other seasons, and one of the best things to do is to take a scenic trip to Lake Toya, a spectacular volcanic caldera lake, where you’ll find hot spring resorts. If you’re a foodie, you’ll be ecstatic to taste some of the city’s most beloved delicacies – including ramen, beef, snow crabs, and of course, its eponymous beer, Sapporo!

5 Regions To Visit In Taiwan

All these and more await all those who visit Taiwan, the island that lies at the junction of the East and South China Seas.

In the midst of planning a trip here? Take a look at this list which includes 5 regions that you should definitely make time to visit for an epic vacation in Taiwan.


1. New Taipei City

Credits: kkarmalove

New Taipei City is a special municipality in Taiwan that was known as Taipei County before 2010. Today, this bustling city that’s home to over 4 million people is one that’s well loved, and famous for tons of shopping as well as delightful eats. If you’d like to do something different, you could choose to visit the Beitou District, which is home to many hot spring resorts as well as a Thermal Valley, or take a short 20-minute hike up Elephant Mountain, and treat yourself to a bird’s eye view of Taiwan’s capital – with Taipei 101 at the very forefront. Whatever you plan to do, don’t miss out on visiting one of their world-famous night markets, and while you’re there, remember to treat yourself to a cup of bubble tea!


2. Hualien County

Credits: sam.lovesyoga

Hualien County is best known for its flawless natural landscapes. It’s home to Taroko National Park – Taiwan’s most famous National Park – which is named after Taroko Gorge, the magnificent 19km marble-walled gorge that was carved out by the waters of the Liwu River. Those who love to hike will enjoy the various trails, while those up for something more adventurous should give river tracing a try. What’s more,  there are numerous other sights including Eternal Spring Shrine, Swallow’s Grotto, and the Buluowan Suspension Bridge. Other than visiting Taroko National Park, make it a point to stop by the nearby Qingshui Cliff and Qixingtan Beach. You won’t find endless vistas of marble gorges here, but you’ll find towering, rugged cliffs that hug the shoreline, and a pristine beach that’s second to none.


3. Nantou County

Credits: adrian_visuals

If you’re planning to visit Nantou County, do spend a few days at Cing Jing Farm. Sitting 1,750m above sea level, this mountaintop town is extremely picturesque. With its cool year-round weather, this destination is one that appeals to families, couples, friends, and even solo travellers. Make time to visit the biggest attraction here: Green Green Grasslands, a postcard-worthy zone where you’ll find fluffy white sheep grazing in rolling pasturelands. Stay in one of the many family-run bed and breakfasts here, and you might just wake up the next morning to find a sea of clouds below you – it’s a quintessential experience in central Taiwan not to be missed! 


4. Kaohsiung County

Credits: sillycoupleblog

Kaohsiung is Taiwan’s third largest city. Though it’s very cosmopolitan, it gives off a more artsy vibe when compared to the other cities on this island. This may be because of Pier 2 Art Centre, an area along the harbour where you’ll find old warehouses that have been turned into art galleries as well as hipster boutiques, cafes, and even craft beer bars. Besides wandering in and out of these old warehouses – some of which have huge, impressive murals painted on their sides – make it a point to check out the outdoor art installations, especially the one that’s made of bright red shipping containers. If you’ve more time to spare, visit Hamasen Railway Cultural Park, an open space that houses decommissioned railway lines and retired train carriages.


5. Chiayi County

Credits: edenwong0202

Alishan is without a doubt, Taiwan’s most iconic mountainous region. Within the 415 square km reserve that sits over 2,000m above sea level lies misty alpine forests, world-class hiking trails, breath-taking vistas, and the Alishan Forest Railway, a historic railway that was built by the Japanese for the transportation of timber. Today, it’s a scenic train route for those visiting the region – whether to enjoy the crisp air, to visit the villages here and learn more about the rich indigenous culture, or to try the nation’s most sought after Alishan High Mountain Tea. Stay overnight and be rewarded with a spectacular sunrise view from the Ogasawara Mountain Observation Deck.

This hotel was designed by the renowned contemporary Japanese architect Kengo Kuma, and its 206 guest rooms offer spectacular views of the Tokyo skyline. However, if there’s a view that you’ll want to aim for, it’s the one featuring Tokyo Tower – this iconic landmark looks amazing in the day, but even more spectacular when it’s lit up at night.

Otherwise, fans of South Korean survival audition programmes will be glad to see familiar names on the line up – select members of AB6IX, Everglow, DRIPPIN, Limelight, and Kwon Eunbi herself have all made their name through these shows, and have put out catchy and memorable songs, with iconic dance choreographies, one after another, in recent years!

Need a reason to prioritise this KrisFlyer Experience over other K-Pop musical festivals this year? This concert is kept cosy and intimate specially for KrisFlyer members. K-Pop festival veterans will know that concerts are usually huge, and many concert goers ultimately get stuck at the back, with hardly a view of anything going on; this small-scale production means that every concert goer will enjoy a good view of everything that’s happening on stage! 


2. Get up close and personal with iKON and VIVIZ

If you’ve always wanted to meet your favourite K-Pop stars in person, this is your chance to do so. Redeem passes under the Premium Reserve category, and you’ll be part of the select few who are invited to the intimate Meet and Greet session with iKON and VIVIZ. For those not in the know, the former is a well-known boy group that put out hits such as Rhythm Ta in 2015, as well as Love Scenario in 2018, and the latter may be a new group that just debuted last year, but they are a trio that used to form half of popular girl group GFriend. Of course, this Meet and Greet session lets you walk away with not just autographed albums, but photos with both groups as well!


3. Bonus: Fly out (and back) on either the A350 or B787 in Singapore Airlines fleet

Choose to fly in comfort on either the A350 or B787 for this vacation. To make things more seamless for concert goers, over 300 seats have been set aside for redemption to and from Incheon International Airport, which is the gateway to Seoul on, SQ606 (departing Singapore between 28 February to 6 March), and both SQ601 and SQ607 (departing Incheon between 8 March and 14 March). Sit back, relax, and enjoy the flights that last slightly over 6 hours!


4. Bonus: Sign up for a range of activities to enjoy in South Korea

If you’d like to take things a notch higher, you can choose to throw in even more experiences while you’re in Seoul. For a day of fun and thrills, head to Lotte World, which is a joy to visit no matter what the weather is like on any given day.

If it’s sunny and you’d prefer to be out, visit Magic Island, an outdoor lakeside park with attractions, shops, and more, and if it’s cold outside, then spend your time in Lotte World Adventure, an atmospheric indoor park with four floors worth of attractions.

Those who would rather do something intrinsically linked to the concert may want to sign up for the Sing Like a Star Experience. Show up at a vocal training studio in the heart of Seoul for a session with Catherine, a K-Pop vocal coach who will teach you voice training exercises, as well as professional tips and techniques, and you might be able to put these newfound skills to use the next time you head out for a karaoke session with your chingus!

Lookback: Top Destinations KrisFlyer Members Travelled To

As we welcome the new year, we wanted to take stock of the past 365 days and look back at how travel patterns have emerged over the past year. Here are 5 popular destinations that KrisFlyer members travelled to in 2022! 

1. Sydney, Australia

Australia’s an extremely popular destination and one of the hottest cities to visit is Sydney. There’s plenty to see and do in this city that’s located on the eastern coast of the country – but you can’t miss visiting the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House. The latter is one of the most distinctive buildings in the world, so take some time to appreciate the architectural masterpiece. Or consider taking the visit up a notch – book a cruise and see the harbour from the water, before grabbing a good brunch at one of the many cafes in the area.

2. Bangkok, Thailand

This hotspot is one that many have visited at least once – some even make it a point to visit this city yearly, and perhaps even multiple times every year. It’s a haven for shopaholics and foodies, but besides the malls and restaurants, there are also a myriad of historic sites in Bangkok that have drawn visitors from all over the world. Most of the famous landmarks are located along the banks of the Chao Phraya River, and riverboats are how you can hop between them. If you’ve only time for one, make it a point to visit Wat Arun for its magnificent Khmer-style spire. 

3. Kuala Lumpur

Many also made multiple trips to Malaysia – specifically, Kuala Lumpur, its capital, which is home to the 451m-tall Petronas Twin Towers – a pair of glass-and-steel-clad skyscrapers that’s better known as the tallest twin towers in the world. You’ll also find British colonial-era landmarks such as the Kuala Lumpur Railway Station, and delectable local eats like banana leaf rice, fish head soup, and more!

4. Jakarta, Indonesia

Many consider this city as a destination that’s primarily for business travel, but things have changed, and the capital of Indonesia has also proven to be a good choice for leisure travellers who are seeking a short weekend getaway – especially those who love cafe hopping. A myriad of aesthetic cafes have sprung up over the last couple of years, and a good one to consider is Harbour Market 88, which offers laidback Mediterranean vibes for you to relax in while you enjoy a freshly-brewed cup of coffee and some warm bakes.  

5. London, The United Kingdom

London is without a doubt, one of the top European cities by visitor traffic numbers, and it’s not hard to see why. This is a place where modernity meets old-world charm; where you’ll find delicious cuisines, endless shopping options, and world-famous iconic sights: Big Ben, the London Eye, and Hyde Park are some of the many attractions in this sprawling metropolis in southern United Kingdom. Tired of bustling city life? Take a day trip to nearby regions like Bath or Stonehenge. It’s little wonder why many have chosen to visit London – here, there are sights that will interest every sort of traveller!

Visited these destinations, and ready to re-visit them, and more, in 2023? As a KrisFlyer member, you’ll earn KrisFlyer miles when you fly on Singapore Airlines and Scoot, and have the option to redeem your KrisFlyer miles for that much-needed vacation.
