Grand Hyatt Guangzhou: It’s Great to Be Grand

Welcome to the Grand Hyatt Guangzhou, an impressive hotel with great customer service, a beautiful room, and an overwhelming breakfast. But for my stay at the Park Hyatt Guangzhou, I would recommend making this your home when you visit Guangzhou.

The Uber China App Workaround

Each time I go to China, I am reminded of Al Pacino's speech from Any Given Sunday. "You know when you get old in life things get taken from you. That's, that's part of life." Each time I visit China, something also gets taken from me.

Guns & Butter: Kota Kinabalu Travel Guide

TPOL has a travel philosophy whereby I do not stay in a country for more than four days but will stay for a minimum of three. Too little time and I can't see anything. Too much time and I do even less because I become complacent. Generally, this approach works.

Le Meridien Kota Kinabalu vs. The Hyatt Regency

What's a vacation without switching hotels every day? Looking to requalify for Hyatt Diamond, I switched to Le Meridien for one night and am glad that I did.

Kota Kinabalu: Oh, The Seafood!

If you are a lover of seafood, you have come to the right place. KK has all sorts of foods to fulfill your under the sea desires.

Kota Kinabalu: Island Hopping With Selfie Sticks

With only two days in KK, I contemplated what I should do. There was no time to become a certified scuba diver, so that was out. I lacked the mental focus to play a round of golf, so I scratched that idea. As a result, I decided to take the lazy way out. I would spend one day touring the beautiful islands of KK and the next going down the river to see the flora and fauna.

Kota Kinabalu: Where to Party

There's more to life than pubs, bars, and clubs. Not every place I visit has to have Shanghai nightlife. After some shenanigans in Jakarta, I was looking forward to doing nothing in KK and expected it to be a secluded, underdeveloped beach town. I was completely wrong.

Hyatt Regency Kota Kinabalu: The Best Deal in the Hyatt Portfolio

Where is Kota Kinabalu? I used to ask myself that every time I connected in Kuala Lumpur. Finally, I asked Google and it told me that it was a city in the Malaysia part of Borneo. Borneo consists of three countries: Malaysia, Brunei, and Indonesia. For my country count travelers, Malaysia and Indonesia Borneo count separate from mainland Malaysia and Indonesia.

Malindo Air Review: US Discount Carriers Take Note

I had one hour to make my connection when I arrived in KL. We were delayed on the runway for an hour so I was sure I would miss the connection. The flight attendant told me that when we arrived someone would be waiting for me at the gate with instructions on how to proceed.

Priority Pass Jakarta Lounge Review: Yuck

I flew Malindo Air from Jakarta to Kota Kinabalu. At CGK's smaller terminal, I passed the time at the Priority Pass lounge. Obviously, a lounge is better than no lounge but this one was worthless.
