#MyTravelokaEscapade: Catch Our Dream to Tokyo with Traveloka

“Travelling – it leaves you speechless then turns you into a storyteller” – Ibn Battuta

Indeed!

By travelling, we will get lots and lots of new influence, viewpoint and even interesting values for our life. That makes me, Encik Suami and si Kicik always spare our little bucks to travel anywhere.

Refreshing, calming and energizing. That makes us become a part-time traveller.

Our bucket list to see the world? Lots! Spending our day and night in Mecca and Medina, gazing to the relics of our Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) in Turkey, milking the cow in New Zealand, swimming around with Humpback Whales in Dominican and also experiencing the blooming of Sakura in Japan.

Yes, Japan. One of our top destination to travel the world. The culture, the city, the food, the people. Japan like a giant magnet that drag me to the heart of hustle-bustle of Tokyo.

And here’s our list!

Shinjuku Gyoen

Me and Encik Suami always teach si Kicik to travel anywhere but cannot forget about the One who created you. And that means we encourage her to go to Masjid and introduce her that Masjid is also as one of our travelling destination if we go somewhere. Searching for the biggest Masjid in Tokyo and I am falling in love with this Tokyo Camii. This Masjid with an adjoining of Turkish cultural center has a stunning yet soothing interior makes me really want to visit this majestic Masjid.

Awwwww… I like Japanese food. No No No. I am falling in love with Japanese food. And frankly speaking, what makes me really really really want to go to Japan is simply because of their Ramen, Udon, Soba, Sushi, Yakiniku, Shabu-Shabu and so forth and so forth. Surprisingly, finding halal food in Tokyo is not that hard. Many websites and even apps in our phone can inform us which restaurant is Halal.

 

Experiencing Tokyo is not just our dream now. #MyTravelokaEscapade is giving us a chance to visit my list from their contest You Need a Holiday lah!

We already a fan of Traveloka since it started. Why? Simple. It’s because of their ongoing promotion on flight and hotel, top notch customer service (especially with the refund process which usually really complicated in some website), beautifully design website and app as well as one stop travelling site for us to book our flight and hotel.
