For a detailed destination guide on Niseko, please visit this post on my travel blog The T List.
It’s not like I have traveled extensively for holidays this year but I would like to recommend two locations as part of the ‘Best of 2014′ series. These two places are poles apart and would appeal to different preferences: Ko Lipe in Thailand for a beach getaway and Niseko in Japan for a taste of winter wonderland.
As we are approaching the end of the year, giving thanks to a smooth-sailing year and enjoying the good feasts with friends and loved ones, perhaps it is also time to give cheer and warmth to those who need our help.
In November, I visited a orphanage in one of the remote villages on the Thailand-Burmese border. Named “Pala-U-Noi“, the orphanage houses close to 50 children. Most of them are from the Karen group while some are Thai and others are Burmese. I spent 2 days and 1 night at Pala-U-Noi with my colleagues, interacting with the children and helping to build a frog farm for the orphanage.
