Finnbay: Finland News, Culture, Entertainment And More

Ever thought about going to Finland? Most Malaysians do not travel to Finland for a holiday and it is one of those countries that we know of but rarely visit. Finland is a country of rugged beauty and amazing winter landscape, especially at this time of the year.

What we know of a country is typically through their exports, and in the case of Finland, their F1 drivers. Known for their speed and cool precision – Mika Hakkinen and Kimi Raikkonen, both of whom are world champions.

Finnbay Finland: Where To Go And What To Do In Finland

At any given month, it seems like someone I know is always flying off to Europe or somewhere in Asia for a holiday. Or they are flying off to continue their education at the start of the term. For those who are fortunate enough to travel, I would say travel as far and as wide as you can.

Back then when I was in England, air travel wasn’t as affordable as it is today, so I spent much of my time exploring England. For those who are already there, try to travel to countries that most people do not get to travel to. I know if it was me, I would jet off to Finland for a few days during the end of term holiday and still make it back to spend Christmas with my friends.

Finland is a land of history and natural beauty. Imagine a museum with unique exhibits of the life from a period of over 10,000 years. Or see the unique architecture that are found in Helsinki. It is an opportunity to experience and photograph all that is unique about Finland.
