13 Feb, 2019 in Danang

To me, the top attraction while visiting Danang at the center of Vietnam, were the marble mountains. About 20 min down south are five marble and limestone hills rising out of nowhere. Offering grand views of Danang and the central Vietnam coastline, you can hike all over the mountains, going up to mountain top to […]

10 Feb, 2019 in Ulsan

Ulsan in south eastern South Korea isn’t quite a tourist destination that Busan, Gyeongju and other nearby cities are. It’s mostly industrial, and not quite as charming. Still, there are a few things to see, and during the day stopover that I visited, I got to see a bit of the better parts, like Daewangam […]

21 Jan, 2019 in Guangdong

By now, I’ve explored most of what Hong Kong has to offer and so I find myself venturing out to the nearby mainland China Guangdong province. When I ask my Hong Kong friends if they go travel in Guangdong they usually reply there isn’t much to visit or see there, it’s not like Guangdong is […]

16 Jan, 2019 in Busan

Lots to see and do in Busan, and yet the Gamcheon Culture Village is probably one of the most famous and quirky attractions. In 2009, the government took a slum location on a mountain ridge that has lots of small alleys and narrow streets and renovated everything, transforming this neighborhood to something quite unique, filled with […]

15 Jan, 2019 in Busan

Lots of things to see and do in Busan, including several temple complexes, but perhaps the nicest one I’ve been to which combines some coastline sea views is the Haedong Temple, dating back to the 14th century. A series of mini temples, bridges, and a collection of Buddhas, you can spend a couple of hours walking […]

13 Jan, 2019 in Dambulla and Sigiriya

One of the first stops on my roadtrip around Sri Lanka was to see an old temple Dambulla Rock Temple, a UNESCO heritage site, one of the best preserved cave temples in Sri Lanka, dating back to 1st century BC. There are a series of caves with a large collection of Buddhas, and some great panoramic […]

12 Jan, 2019 in Kunming

Yunnan province was one of my highlights so far touring around China, and the base was Kunming. Dali, Lijiang, and the smaller towns in Yunnan are the real attraction, but Kunming also has a few attractions worth visiting. I spent a day walking around the central area and exploring, the main attraction there – shopping […]

11 Jan, 2019 in Dambulla and Sigiriya

I came in to Sri Lanka with zero plans, figured out in Colombo that I should rent a car and head out, and since driving myself wasn’t possible I got a driver with the car. He was pretty decent, and I was open to whatever, so most things he suggested I followed. One of the […]

28 Dec, 2018 in Busan

I have a slight obsession with cable cars, if I’m visiting somewhere, one of the first things I look for is whether they have a cable car or an observation deck. Coming in to Busan without doing much homework, I googled that, and quickly found that  there’s the Song Marine Cable Car from Songdo Beach, that goes […]

27 Dec, 2018 in Fukuoka

I love specialty museums. I’m so tired of the same old typical museums in each city that every time I run into something different, I’m ecstatic. In a recent trip to Japan to the Fukuoka region, I did a quick trip to the nearby Kitakyushu and while on the bus from one cable car to another […]
