Nara, Japan

Nara is only about 40 minutes away from Osaka by train, and is definitely worth the trip. Famous for their free-roaming deers, Nara Park is only about 10 minutes walk from the station. It is a straight shot and you know you’ve made it when you see the stalls selling deer crackers. Nara Park is…

Kaiyukan – Osaka Aquarium

Growing up in Hong Kong means that when I travel, aquariums rarely make it onto my to-do list. We have Ocean Park and we take these things for granted. As a “been there done that” kind of traveler who sees a sight and does not know what to do with it, being in Osaka posed a small…

Cairns and Brisbane, Australia

First things first, check out the view from my room in Cairns! I love Cairns for how chilled-out it is, and how accessible everything is because it’s so small (unless you’re straying from the tourist area and visiting the residential, but why would you). The first time I went I was alone and honestly, it…

I can’t believe I went on my second trip of the year in January – and thanks for kicking my butt about not updating. Ladies and gentlemen, after a three-week delay, here comes Tokyo 2013. I…

Hello Dubai! :: Part 2

    Day 2 & 3 I’m going to group days two and three together, since not much really happened :p Day 2 On the second day, my friend had to work on a shuttle flight to Jeddah (I think that’s where she went), so I had the whole morning till late late afternoon to…

Hello Dubai!

Day 1 Technically we arrived at Dubai at night so I’m really writing about Day 2 – but hey, check out our room. It’s massive!!! (Diversion tactic win!) So, Dubai Dubai! I’ve always wanted to go somewhere in the middle east, and this is probably the best place for a noob tourist like me! I’ve…
