Jellyfish adventures with a dose of ‘vitamin sea’ in Palau — by Leesan

The columnist managed to tick one of his travel bucket list items earlier this year on the island of Palau.

CAN’T imagine how anyone could be so calm while swimming around a bloom of jellyfish in the sea, but that experience has always been on my travel bucket list.

And one of the best places to do this is in Palau.

Palau is located in the south-west of the Pacific Ocean.
