Navigating my favourite destinations

It's no secret I love to travel. These days it's more for work than pleasure, but I always find time to fit in plenty of delicious local cuisine, some shopping, and exploring around the places that are a little off the beaten path.

When I arrive at my destination, I always keep things simple; I try to eat, shop, relax and hangout where the locals do. For those of you who love to travel like a local too, I've put together a collection of Khoo (and Khoollect) posts to help you plan your next adventure. Whether you're hopping across to Paris, taking a long flight to Sydney, spending a weekend in London, or longer in Melbourne, you're sure to find more than a few great spots to visit by clicking the links below:
