Dubai has become a popular tourist destination in recent years. The combination of 1001 Nights feel, luxury shopping malls, spectacular architecture, and local attractions like camel riding and sandboarding is a brand that sells.  The harbour town Dubai has been a major trade hub for the Middle East since the early 1900s. But it wasn’t […]

Beijing: From Empire to People’s Republic

Beijing is the capital and one of the important economic centers of the People’s Republic of China. The masses of people, busy traffic, and heavy pollution triggered my flight instinct.

Cambodia: Visiting the Temples of Angkor

Bangkok: City of Angels, Home of Metrohm Siam

When I landed in Bangkok, I felt like I might have by accident passed through the gates of hell—which, as you may remember, are open right now (at least in Singapore). I thought that I’d already adapted to the humid heat in the previous countries I visited, at least as far as that’s possible. But […]

Metrohm Italiana Visits Milan

All Metrohm Italiana employees were invited to Milan to celebrate the Metrohm anniversary with a special city tour, which I joined as well. While the historic facts left many colleagues fairly unimpressed (especially those from Rome who are used to basically living in an openair museum), the team was in an exuberant mood and enjoyed […]
