    Marunouchi (Tokyo Station) The financial epicentre of Tokyo, visiting this district can actually be a relaxing experience, especially when you pick the right times to visit. Luckily, this area of Tokyo particularly adheres to the standard business hours. Which means there are times during the day where everyone is in their office working which is […]

    Where do I even start with Tokyo? Fast paced, ultra-modern and never sleeping, Hollywood Tokyo and real-life Tokyo are actually really similar. Realizing the feat in front of me, I took my fellow traveller’s advice and decided to tackle Tokyo like a country instead, taking in each area as if it was its own city (which […]

    Situated on the Shikoku Island, Matsuyama is easily accessible by ferries from Oita and Hiroshima. Perhaps influenced by the numerous of onsens in the area, Matsuyama is a peaceful and relaxed city. Most of the city shuts down after sun goes down, making it highly enjoyable to stroll the city at night. It’s also dramatically […]

    A laid back and sleepy little city, Beppu wasn’t really a city on my original travel plans. But it turned out to be an enjoyable and relaxing place, perfect for making day trips elsewhere, like the postcard perfect city of Yufuin. Situated right on the Iyo-Nada Sea, Beppu is often hot and humid, and in […]

    Charming, poetic and spiritual, Kyoto seems like a world away from Tokyo in distance and culture. I love Kyoto and thought my several days in the city was barely enough. Even though Kyoto is one of the biggest cities in Japan and attracts just as many tourists, there’s just a different pace in the city: […]

    Osaka Osaka, Japan is so much more of a hustle than I thought it’d be. When compared to Tokyo, I always thought it would be the quieter and calmer.  It’s true most of the city does simmer down after night fall, but it’s certainly just as modern and hyper as the capital city, making it […]

    The city of Hoi An has a strong reputation of being the place to get clothes tailor made, which obviously became one of my ultimate mission when I visited the city. I was bouncing off the walls with excitement when we got into the city. I just couldn’t wait to get clothes made to to […]

    When it comes to Vietnam, there seems to be one astonishing loop or drive after another, but my favourite has to be the northern parts, close to the boarder with China. It’s less touristy, more peaceful and completely unspoiled. Throughout my journey up there, I only bumped into a handful of other foreigners. The Northern […]

    Ho Chi Minh City is a frantic and chaotic city. Hands down, it also has the craziest drivers I’ve encountered in all my time driving through Vietnam. Backpacker District Most backpackers visiting the city will probably stay in the area across from September 23 Park, where there are a ton of restaurants, bars, hostels and […]

    Again trying to skip the hoards of crowds, I decided to skip Mui Ne and visit the neighbouring city of Binh Hung instead. Binh Hung and Mui Ne are actually both located within Phan Thiet and are only about 20km away from each other. There are still a lot of local tourists that visit Binh […]
