Semarang is a city on the north coast of the island of Java, Indonesia. It is the capital of the province of Central Java. Semarang is a bustling city and an important port. Semarang is very much a mixture of old and new Java, with a modern southerly 'new town' area and a more historical 'Outstadt' area on its northerly coastal plain, next to the Banjir canals and Yos Sudarso Bay.
Attractions in Semarang include its Dutch colonial buildings, Chinese temples. The Tugu Muda and Sam Po Kong Temples and the ‘Buiding of a Thousand Doors and Windows’. There are some interesting museums to visit including the Ronggowarsito museum and the Museum Rekor Indonesia.
Not far from Semarnage is the famous ancient Buddhist temple of Borobudur. Dating back to the 9th century, it was built with more than two million blocks of stone.
Singapore is an island-state in Southeast Asia. Singapore City is by far the largest and most significant island alongside 63 others that make up Singapore state. Located at the mouth of the Singapore River, it is a modern, affluent city and the world's busiest port.
A blend of the ancient and modern can be seen from the gleaming skyscrapers to Chinese and Hindu temples. Combining a lush tropical climate, with tasty food, good shopping and a happening, vibrant nightlife scene, this Garden City makes a great stopover or springboard into the region.
Laem Chabang is a city (thesaban nakhon) in Chonburi Province, Thailand. It is home to Thailand's largest port by the same name, about 25 kilometres north of Pattaya, and south of the city Chon Buri. It serves as a gateway to nearby Pattaya and further out, Bangkok.
Bangkok is divided into 50 districts and 154 subdistricts. In central Bangkok is the Siam Square district, a modern commercial area full of shopping malls and hotels. Sukhumvit is an exlusive district, while Silom is a primary party area by night.
