Jewel of Muscat to get a permanent home by the end of the year

No Comments

A year on after the Jewel of Muscat completed its voyage from Oman to Singapore, the reconstruction of a 9th century ship will finally be placed in a permanent home in the Maritime Xperiential Museum which will open in Singapore by the year’s end. (If you haven’t seen it already, last year I boarded the Jewel while it was docked in Georgetown, Penang – take a look here.)

Cambodia celebrates anniversary of Preah Vihear listing

Cambodia celebrates the 2nd anniversary of the listing of Preah Vihear temple as a World Heritage Site.
