Beaches in Hong Kong

What to do in Hong Kong on a hot summer’s day? If you ask locals, a trip to the beach might be the answer you get. The reason is based on a process of elimination. There are no large water parks or entertainment facilities in Hong Kong. The swimming pools opening hours are often short. Private pools are uncommon. Because of that, Public beaches become the best way to escape the summer heat....

China itinerary: The perfect two itinerary in China

China, the second largest country in the world, is one of the most diverse and contrasting destinations on the planet. Ancient traditions and complex history are sharply contrasted with the modern and futuristic architecture and transport. China can be loud and chaotic, and also rustic and remote. Having travelled extensively through the country, it really is like nowhere I’ve even been. And planning our China itinerary was one of the biggest challenges. The country is vast, with so many...

Enjoying the nicest casinos in Macau: A guide

The rise of Asia has been fascinating to watch over the years. In the West, we’ve grown accustomed to 2% annual growth rates being normal. For nations like China, though, 10%+ rates of expansion were normal for decades. In comparison, their current 6-7% growth rate feels slow to them. Nonetheless, these numbers have produced unimaginable wealth. China has gaming traditions that go back eons. Today, whilst gambling is illegal on the mainland, the Chinese government allows it in Macau....

10 things to know about train travel in China

I spent 3.5 weeks backpacking around China on an organised tour with The Dragon Trip. During that time we took many trains throughout China to get us from City to City including 3 Overnight Trains and multiple Day Bullet Trains lasting up to 9 hours. China is HUGE and these bullet trains are a life saver because if a journey lasts 9 hours on a Bullet Train going up to 217 mph you can only image how long it would take on a ‘normal train’! Japan is so well known for its Bullet Trains and...

Jeju Islands West and South tour - 1 of the 7 Natural Wonders of the World

Hiring a car is a popular way to see Jeju Island but being a solo traveller to Jeju, this wasn’t an option for me. Instead I took two day tours of the island - a West Tour and South Tour which showed me so much of the island. Jeju Island in South Korea is one of the new 7 Natural Wonders of the World. It’s a big island, 3 times the size of Seoul and home to 2 cities but it’s also home to some incredible natural beauty. There are many things to do on Jeju Island in South Korea and...

From ancient China in Fujian to modern China in Macau

Fujian is a province in China that resembles Ancient China. We started off our stay in Fujian by staying overnight in a traditional Chinese roundhouse which was a very unique experience. Over the following days we visited more traditional roundhouses in China, tasted lots of Chinese tea which is grown in the region, went out on some walks and even went for a swim in a lake. From Fujian we boarded an overnight train further South to the China and Macau border to enter Macau and spend a few......

Beijing to Shanghai via Hangzhao & overnight train in China

From Beijing we took an overnight train to the City of Hangzhao which is not far from Shanghai. I was really happy with the quality of this overnight train in China, the toilets and sinks were clean and the beds were comfy even if we had 6 beds in one small area. Visiting Hangzhao for 1 night and 2 days was a great way to split up the two big cities of Beijing and Shanghai. We went on a boat trip out on the famous Westlake and went for a hike through tea plantations and it was nice to be in...
