JAPAN, Fukuoka – Itoshima is a seaside city of beautiful beaches, cascading waterfalls and stunning scenic beauty.

One of the most exquisite sights is found on Futamigaura beach, where a stark white torii (Japanese prayer gate) stands.

Artfully uniting the bright blue of the sky and the sea with the pale sand of the beach, this inspiring sight exemplifies the spiritual relationship between the Japanese and the natural world.

UNITED KINGDOM, London – One of the most iconic structures of London, nay, the world, is the Tower Bridge of London.

Built over a span of 8 years in the late 19th century, the Tower Bridge is a monumental and historical architecture overlooking the Thames River. Often mistaken for the London Bridge, which happens to be further down the river, the Tower Bridge had over 50 submitted designs before assuming its iconic façade that has now stood for some 125 years.

JAPAN, Miyazaki – With calm waters and breathtaking views, Takachiho Gorge is one of the best spots to appreciate Japan’s natural beauty.

The site perhaps owes its supernatural beauty to its spiritual history, being the hiding place of the Shinto Sun Goddess Amaterasu and the disputed landing place of her grandson Ninigi no Mikoto, said to be the progenitor of Japan’s royal lineage.

We recommend visiting during Autumn to see Takachiho Gorge is at its most bewitching; with fiery red leaves contrasting against deep cerulean waters.

SINGAPORE – In this rarely seen vantage of the Marina Bay area, grey-blue concrete and glass edifices stand as towering symbols of modernity and ambition. Yet cradled in their midst are the simple, orange-roofed low-rises of the generations that came before.

On the ground, the dichotomy is no less fascinating. Once serving as warehouses, homes, offices and shops, historic shophouses in the bustling business district now enjoy a new lease of life, offering refined pickings of a breadth befitting the world’s port-of-call.

SINGAPORE – With a design that calls to mind Chinese bamboo steamers stacked atop each other, the National Technological University’s Learning Lab building might well be a pressure cooker for students, especially when exams rolls around.

Thankfully, the intriguing building features cold water circulated via metal coils – an innovative climate control system that is said to be up to 30% more energy efficient than conventional air conditioning. All the better to help young busy minds keep their cool.
