I am back from Belfast, Northern Ireland!
The news reported last month in Belfast – shooting incidents and hoax bomb alerts – really made me feel anxious and doubtful if we should proceed with our travel plans. The flight tickets was only 2pence for a return ticket, but considering that we have already made full payment for the accommodation, it took us some time to decide whether to go or not.
After following the news about the city and reading the tips from the locals in some forums, we decided to go and it turned out to be an extremely safe and pleasant city. In fact, it seemed as if Belfast is a safer city to travel in compared to Glasgow or Kuala Lumpur. Among these 3 cities, Belfast (in recent times) has the least amount of violence/negative news, transparent media or not…
