Khao San Road is a popular tourist spot so getting there wouldn't be an issue as drivers would know how to get there. It's the mode of transport that tourist should be cautious of. Tuk Tuk drivers are known to offer an outrages price for a short trip to Khao San Road. Unless you're an expert in haggling and know roughly the supposed price of the fare, I would suggest you stick to meter rides or call Grab. When arrived at the destination, keep in mind that all these shop owners have already mark-up their price knowing that it's a tourist spot. Try to make Khao San Road a sight-seeing place rather than a shopping destination and you won't regret later on.

It's an insightful experience of the Buddhist culture in Bangkok. I've managed to witness the on-going prayer session with my 2 friends during the visit. We needed to dress appropriately. (I believe there should be an area for visitors to cover up if they do visit the enter the main temple.) The architecture is beautiful and you might even get a chance to catch young boys playing football/soccer. Look out for the drawings on the walls and you might learn some acupuncture points. The journey to the temple is filled with construction sites so be careful.

It's rated the best airport in the world for a reason. Changi Airport is capable of covering your every need. There free entertainment such as movie screening and other gaming facilities available. The airport provides resting lounge, massage chairs and travelators for tired passengers to relax. There are numerous attractions inside the airport such as the heritage zone to give insight into the Singapore culture. Some Changi Airport's Food establishments are open 24/7. I would recommend that you check out the Staff Canteen for more local (authentic) Singapore food before you leave.

A shopping paradise for tourist. You can do all of your shopping here as it covers a range of items from normal wear, souvenirs, beauty products to street food. The best part of all, you can put your bargaining skills to the test and haggle your way to a cheap deal. It's not just for tourists, locals shop here as well. Within the vicinity, there are 2 malls (Bugis Junction and Bugis+), National Library, famous Chinese temple (Kwan Im Thong Hood Cho Temple), Trishaw services and a local hawker centre. I would highly recommend this place!

The main goal of my Penang family trip was to find all the Street Art in George Town. The street art is spread out across the whole of Georgetown so you might want to plan your route before you head there. You'll probably take a few days or weeks depending on how you want to immerse yourself in each sites before moving on. It's a perfect concept to get tourist to explore all parts of Georgetown and see different attraction sites. The street art is the best Georgetown has to offer. I'm looking forward to revisiting these street art sites!
