24 HOURS IN KUALA LUMPUR

January 14th, 2014 | by Geckos Tales Team

With glittering lights and blaring horns it’s hard to imagine that 200 years ago KL was little more than a makeshift mining village, where the most exciting thing going on was gang warfare


24 HOURS IN CESKY KRUMLOV

Overlooked by the tourist masses, Chicago is a quietly confident city full of endearing locals and some seriously brutal winters


24 HOURS IN UBUD

January 11th, 2014 | by Geckos Tales Team

Ubud’s the kind of place you decide to become a writer. Or an artist. Or a yoga instructor. Anything that will keep you here with the bright Bali colours, healthy lifestyle and culture

It’s pretty much impossible to waste time in Rangoon. Trust us, we’ve tried.


24 HOURS IN VARANASI

January 9th, 2014 | by Geckos Tales Team

Varanasi is one of the holiest cities in India. Mother Ganga flows slowly by and pilgrims flock from around the country to bathe in her waters. Some even come here to die.


24 HOURS IN VIENNA

January 8th, 2014 | by Geckos Tales Team

Drop your misconceptions of Vienna at the door and spend your day uncovering the jackpot of cool finds hidden behind Vienna’s oh so cultured veneer


24 HOURS IN MBABANE

January 8th, 2014 | by Geckos Tales Team

While most travellers come to Swaziland for the game watching, the kingdom’s sleepy capital still has a few tricks up its sleeve and is well worth a look while resting between game drives


24 HOURS IN KIGALI

January 8th, 2014 | by Geckos Tales Team

Although most travellers come to Rwanda for a hot date with a gang of mountain gorillas, visiting Kigale offers a chance to see what urban Rwanda is all about


24 HOURS IN BUDAPEST

January 8th, 2014 | by Geckos Tales Team

Despite all the historic churches, ye olde curiosity shoppes, antique stores and Communist-era relics, Budapest is a city that is alive and kicking.


24 HOURS IN AMMAN

January 8th, 2014 | by Geckos Tales Team

Amman’s buildings seemingly follow uniform construction protocols, so it’s a good idea to pack a map and pay attention to where you’re going while navigating through a sea of rocky, grey same-same-but-just-a-little-bit-different buildings


24 HOURS IN OSAKA

January 8th, 2014 | by Geckos Tales Team

While Osaka may not have Niseko’s slopes, Tokyo’s scale or Kyoto’s heritage, Osaka has much to bring to the table


24 HOURS IN CAPE TOWN

January 8th, 2014 | by Geckos Tales Team

With cracking coastal views, one of the oldest mountains in the world and sunshine on tap, audacious Cape Town shamelessly basks in its own beauty

Nowhere else in the world nails the “medieval meets emerging star” vibe quite like Krakow


24 HOURS IN KATHMANDU

January 8th, 2014 | by Geckos Tales Team

Kathmandu is more than a brand of camping and adventure sports gear; Kathmandu is also Nepal’s fully-loaded capital


24 HOURS IN MARRAKECH

January 8th, 2014 | by Geckos Tales Team

Travelling to Marrakech is an open invite for chaos to enter your life - the Red City is every bit as frantic as you’d expect


24 HOURS IN MEXICO CITY

January 2nd, 2014 | by Geckos Tales Team

Most Mexican fantasies involve food and booze, which is fair enough, because there are tons of both here.


24 HOURS IN NAIROBI

January 1st, 2014 | by Geckos Tales Team

Don’t be one of those fancy folk that fly in and out of Nairobi without ever having seen or been a part of it.
