A visit to Kyoto should always be on your itinerary if you ever find yourself in Japan. The ancient capital of Japan might be a little bit slow-paced as compared to the hustle and bustle of Tokyo, but it reflects a huge part of the rich Japanese culture and history.
Kyoto’s biggest attractions would probably be the sheer number of traditional temples. Most of them were built decades ago, and they still retain a certain rustic charm. But more often than not, we do not have the luxury of time to visit every single temple there is in Kyoto.
If you simply cannot make up your mind as to which temple you should go to, let our list of 14 Temples You Need To Visit While In Kyoto help you decide.

For many Singaporeans, Chinese New Year is just not the same without bak kwa. Originating from China, bak kwa is essentially barbecued meat slices that are extremely fragrant and come with a hint of smokiness from the fire that is used to grill the meat jerky.
While we certainly do not need any special occasion just for eating bak kwa, this Chinese snack is especially popular during the Lunar New Year and that is when you will see long queues forming outside popular bak kwa shops such as Bee Cheng Hiang and Lim Chee Guan.
Confused about all the prices? Our Bak Kwa Price Index 2018 will give you an overview of the more popular Bak Kwa brands in Singapore. Happy feasting!
