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 […]

12 Sep, 2017 in Sapporo

One of the most interesting attractions in Sapporo is an open-air Historical Village of Hokkaido museum on the eastern side of the city featuring 50+ historical buildings from all over the northern Japanese region of Hokkaido from the Meiji and Taisho periods of Japan (1868 – 1926) to take you back in time to a […]

7 Jun, 2017 in Brussels

I don’t visit Brussels very often, but I recently had a chance to see new parts of Brussels and experience some of its cultural life during the Brussels Museum Night. With one ticket, you can attend many of Brussel’s galleries and museums with live performances and special events taking place in practically every corner. Didn’t […]

20 Jan, 2016 in Antalya
Yoruk Nomad Theme Park Kemer Antalya-023

Antalya is a gorgeous province, best known for terrific clear water beaches, but Antalya has much more to offer than all-inclusive resorts and sun tanning on the beach. There are beautiful natural parks, breath-taking sky scenic views, remarkable historical sites, and… culture. If you want to learn a bit more about the history of the locals and […]

18 Jan, 2016 in Moscow
Gorky Central Park of Culture and Leisure Moscow Russia (17)

Moscow has some really wonderful parks, and Gorky is one of the highlights. If you’re looking for green space for some gardens, sports, food, arts, and … beaches? then Gorky seems like just the place. It has all of those and much more. It’s a very large park and there are all kinds of things taking […]

20 Apr, 2015 in Phoenix
Musical Instruments Museum Phoenix Arizona-003

Every big city has an arts museum, most have a natural history museum, and a regional history museum, and when you roam around the world for a few years it’s hard to really be excited about these any more. There’s a limit to how many Picassos, Chagalls, and dinosaurs bones you can see before you […]

4 Feb, 2015 in Mexico City
The National Museum of Anthropology Mexico City (5)

If you are, like me, ignorant of the Mexican cultural heritage and pre-colonial history and find stories of lost ancient cultures fascinating and tragic, then you’ll probably find great interest in the National Museum of Anthropology in Mexico City. Maya, Aztec, and endless other former glorious cultures are all features with detailed explanations. …

Singapore visit (43)

How time flies. It’s been 9 years since I visited Singapore during my backpacking tour of Asia. I have fond memories of Singapore, I remember it as the first place I saw of developed Asia. It truly impressed me and has lit up my interest in seeing more of Chinese cultures. This month, I was […]

8 May, 2014 in Beijing
National Art Museum of China Beijing (5)

Interested in arts and culture in Beijing? Quite a few things for you to see. My absolute favorite is the 798 area, but if you prefer the more organized museums and wondering around large structures with exhibition halls, then Beijing offers a number of large scale museums, arguably the best in China. In my last […]

13 Jan, 2014 in Boston
Harvard Art Museums (3)

A visit to Harvard University in Boston is more than just visiting any campus. The university also hosts a number of terrific museums well worth exploring. I previously wrote about the natural history museum and the museum of archeology and ethnology but there’s one more worth mentioning – the Harvard Art Museums. They were under […]
