Kon'nichiwa! Welcome to the land of free roaming Bambi’s, Nara. With eight Unesco World Heritage Sites and some of the country’s most notable cultural landmarks, this compact and scenic city never runs out of features when it comes to places of interest. Nara’s park, full of calm ponds and small trees, is where the greater number of the city’s semi-wild deer roam free. Once respected as gods’ messengers, these enchanting animals bow to tourists as an implied gesture of asking to be fed, which usually turns out to be successful. If you want to get a closer look and bond with them, you can buy special shika senbei (deer crackers) from any of the nearby shops. Be warned: when they see you holding some crackers, they will come running! You may also want to check your clothes as they will do just about anything to get a hold of that cracker, even that means biting and pulling your picture-ready trench coat. At the end, it’s another fulfilling and cold day that warms your heart with great memories and remarkable views.

Bangkok suffers from a lack of green spaces. As part of a Green Bangkok 2030 project the city is building new parks. I recently visited the "soft opened" Benchakitti Park Phase 3 and was impressed! It's a huge new extension to the existing park next to Queen Sirikit convention centre. You can enter on foot at the south end of Sukhumvit Soi 10 (the other pedestrian gates are not open yet) and once you are inside you feel a world away from Bangkok. There are dedicated cycle lanes and pedestrian paths and skywalks, crisscrossing a huge green area of trees, scrub and wetlands. At the moment there are few facilities besides some toilets, so bring drinks and snacks. Best to visit early morning or after 4pm when it's not too hot - though there was more shade than I expected i wouldn't go for a jog here in the midday Bangkok sun! This will definitely be a jewel in the crown on Bangkok once fully open, so come visit before the crowds arrive.

I love going to parks more than restaurants, and this one’s on top of my list! Spending time here makes me forget about the hustle and bustle of the city for a while. It’s also the largest park in Central London, and there’s a plethora of outdoor activities to try out! On my bucket list is to ride a boat on Serpentine Lake where I can see interesting wildlife species
