In this twin set of seven-day scenarios, you'll give yourself an urban base to explore in-depth and from which to branch out into the regions. If you're enticed by the beach and nightlife of Tel Aviv, Israel's Mediterranean metropolis, start there. If you are more motivated by historical or religious interest, make Jerusalem your starting point.
The tiny sultanate of Brunei is just a remnant of a naval empire that once ruled all of Borneo and part of present-day Philippines. Nevertheless, this quiet darussalam (Arabic for 'abode of peace') boasts the largest oilfields in Southeast Asia.

Merlin Kafka is a freelance photographer and world-traveler originating from Germany and based in the UK. He ventures across the world to capture moments that are as spellbinding as they are beautiful. This world-explored crafts his photographs to feel like they occupy a moment in a distant dream. The desaturated colors, especially, have this effect, and their appearance is reminiscent of vintage photographs from long ago-certainly not of this century. More information at merlinkafka.co

Based in Singapore, self-taught cityscape and street photographer Yik Keat Lee thrives most in places that are as unpredictable as he is. No matter where in the world he is, Yik Keat Lee has always taken photos before they slip away. Brief recollections can last forever if he is there to photograph them. Bangkok and Hong Kong are photographer’s favorite city since they are two of the rare places where modernity and tradition collide. The best stories, he suggests, can be found in the contradictions brought on by metamorphosis. In addition to being inspired by simple things, sense of evolution and striving is at the heart of all of Yik Keat Lee’s work. An unquenchable thirst for making beautiful photographs is far more important than anything that can be taught, and in his mind, “you are either born with it or you are not” as he says. “People who want achieve something so badly they think about it all the time,” Yik Keat Lee states, “these are the types of people that inspire me.” More information at leeyikkeat.com
