  • A Day trip from Quebec City: Île d’Orléans

    Culturally rich and full of historical charm, Quebec City, just like Banff is another Canadian gem. But more often than not, travellers will only make enough time for the Old Town. Sure, the UNESCO Heritage sites of Old Quebec captivates with historical treasures around every corner and there’s something truly romantic about the steep cobble […]

  • San Francisco

    Known for inspiring innovations, eccentric culinary eats and some of the most unique landscapes across America, San Francisco sat at the top of my travel list for a long time.   Fueled by pop culture references and consistently being in the media spotlight, I knew the City by the Bay was going to be a […]

  • Roadtrippin’ the Oregon Coast

    To me, nothing represents summertime more than hitting the open road, blaring some embarrassing (yet highly enjoyable) sing-a-longs and making pit stops at questionable roadside diners. There’s really no other form of travel that replicates the feeling of a good ol’ road trip. When I’m on the road, time doesn’t seem to matter as much […]

  • China
  • Shanghai

    There’s something very different in the air of Shanghai compared to the rest of the country – and I’m pretty sure its residents notice it too. Bursting with skyscrapers and futuristic architecture that reaches for the clouds, Shanghai is very much in a league all of its own. It’s so easy to forget you’re in […]

    Xi'an China, Where's the Charm

    Once the capital of China and the eastern end of the Silk Road, Xi’an is brimming with history and significance. It was home to 13 imperial dynasties and most substantially, the spot where China’s first emperor united China. Like most momentous ancient cities, a giant fortified wall surrounds the original city center. The wall encircles […]

  • Beijing

    As the capital city of the most populated country in the world, Beijing is every part as crowded and congested as one would imagine, but it also means it’s jammed packed with things to do. Unlike ultra-modern Shanghai, Beijing is a history traveller’s dream. The city is modern and efficient enough for everything to operate […]

  • Malaysia
  • Kuala Lumpur

    As the capital of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur is a diverse melting pot of both ethnicity and culture.   I honestly didn’t know what to expect from Kuala Lumpur, especially after talking to other travellers that had visited before. Many had mixed emotions about it, and I often received the heads up that it’s a very different […]

  • Hong Kong

    A bustling and thriving financial centre, Hong Kong serves as the financial and international gateway for many Asian countries, especially China. Aside from its professional reputation, Hong Kong is also an exciting country to visit. It’s a wonderful blend of old-world traditional charm, mixed in with an ultra-modern and luxurious lifestyle. It’s also super convenient […]

  • Japan
  • Kanazawa

    400km Northwest of Tokyo, seaside Kanazawa is known for its well-preserved Edo-era districts. While I don’t think any Japanese town or city is ever lacking in culture or history, Kanazawa stands out because it actually has preserved neighbourhoods. Since Kanazawa attracts a lot of tourists, there’s a specific bus loop that brings you to all […]
