It takes just three hours to get from Bangkok to Hua Hin, the amount of time many of us spend daily in our cars trying to get to and from work.
You can make a lazy morning of the journey too, taking along a picnic box and stopping off on the route that leads to the InterContinental Hua Hin Resort in the heart of Hua Hin, a popular weekend destination for Bangkokians. The resort is a stone's throw away from fancy shopping malls and markets packed with delicious local street food, fine restaurants and boutique coffee shops.

Wang Yongjian, 35, one of 31 cyclists who were chosen to take up the demanding ride called the Tibet Challenge last year, almost did not make it. But having got through, he is ready to go again. Yang Feiyue reports.
It is a route that has seen the blood, sweat and tears of many cyclists.
Wang Yongjian, 35, went through hell during a 10-day bicycling trip from Sichuan province's Kangding to the Tibet autonomous region in October 2015.

Your own private island in the middle of the Indian Ocean. A secluded white sand dune in one direction, and the vast expanse of a clear blue sea the other.
This is your dining spot for lunch, complete with a nicely set table, a shady umbrella, champagne on ice, and the promise of freshly grilled seafood. Is this a dream?
No, this is Zanzibar.

One cannot deny that travelling does come with a price; but it doesn't have to be expensive if managed wisely. Like many other budget travellers, I always have my travel finance under control. During my last trip to Bangkok, which was for 4 days 3 nights, I travelled with a budget of just $400, and still returned to Singapore happily, simply because I didn't spend more than I had. Want to know how I did it? Here are my secrets.

Singapore may be a tiny sweltering dot of a country but it punches well above its weight in cycle friendly infrastructure.
With a well maintained network of bike paths, good value bicycle shops and a population desperate for a bit of fresh air, a few hours on a bike can reinvigorate even the most jaded of city dwellers.
