Singapore, Hong Kong, and Guilin

After I finished work in India, a friend and I traveled through Southeast Asia for some rest and sightseeing. We were able to cover a lot of ground in a short time, visiting Singapore, China, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Thailand in just over a month. This first set of photos is from Singapore, Hong Kong and Guilin. Landing in Singapore, a city known for being so clean that you can get arrested for spitting, was quite a shock after 13 months in Delhi, where trash piles line the streets. I was also happy to make it to Guilin, a city in Guangxi province famous for it's unique limestone mountains (called karsts). You could spend a lifetime spending any one of these places, but here's what I was able to capture during my short visits.

Gardens by the Bay
Singapore's surreal Gardens by the Bay park feels like something out of a Doctor Suess book.

Reed Flute Caves
Guilin's Reed Flute Caves are an enormous cave complex made even more astounding by the psychedelic lighting.
