Things I Love About Living In A Tent in Australia

I came to Byron on the 13th September, and on the 17th I moved into a tent for three months. After a month passed, I loved my new way of life so much that I decided to stay in Byron and my tent until February. I’m leaving very soon – I fear that I may be […]

The Ultimate Solo Travel in China Guide

China is many things. Crazy, overwhelming and unique are all words that could be used to describe this Asian country. Solo travel in China can seem pretty daunting – it’s often near impossible to know exactly what is going on while exploring the country, especially if you have little grasp of the language. If you’re thinking […]

Two Days in Singapore – The Local Fella’s Guide

Singapore as a city definitely took me by surprise. I’m not sure whether it was the lush green spaces within the urban area, the city’s melting pot of cultures, or the obvious pride of the nation that captured me. I don’t know whether it was when I was exploring mosques in Kampong Glam, savouring mouth-watering food […]

Travelling from China to Hong Kong: the differences between the two

Woah, Hong Kong. It’s a great city, but it’s a strange culture shock after spending a lot of time in mainland China. Hong Kong was a British territory until very recently, so obviously has a lot of British influence still, which intertwines with a more traditional Chinese culture. I’ll be honest: I liked Hong Kong, […]

Hong Kong Accommodation: Are hostels in Chungking Mansions safe?

I’m travelling on a budget. And Hong Kong was expensive. I knew it would be costlier than China, and I’d set aside money for that. But I really wasn’t expecting it to be as dear as it was. Honestly, I think it may be the most expensive place that I’ve been to. Or at least […]

A unique hostel in Sydney – YHA Railway Square

If you’re searching for a unique hostel in Sydney, there is really no other option than YHA Railway Square. The main selling point of this hostel is that some of the dorms are located in renovated railway carriages. From the outside they look like vintage railway cars, and as soon as you walk into the […]

How to visit a Longsheng Rice Terrace without a guide

Now, I’m not saying that I didn’t enjoy Chinese cities. I loved Shanghai way more than I thought I would, and I enjoyed exploring a remote city in China, Liaoyuan. But, after six weeks exploring city after city, I thought my head was going to explode. As I arrived in Guilin from a 21 hour train […]

Please Visit the Nanjing Massacre Memorial While You’re in China

Nanjing – just another Chinese city. Or is it? The place has actually boasted a huge amount of national importance over the country’s history. It was once the capital of South China (‘Nanjing’ literally means ‘South Capital’ whereas ‘Beijing’ means ‘North Capital’) and today, is one of those cities with a centre that’s developing at […]

Sustainable Tourism in Shanghai: Being Eco-Friendly in China’s Modern City

“Shanghai isn’t the real China”, a guy (who was steadily making his way through a beer tower on his own at 6pm) told me in my Beijing hostel. “You might as well be in the States”. Now, while I agreed with him that Shanghai is definitely a built up city, with skyscrapers on every horizon […]

Is hiking Mount Huashan dangerous?

Is hiking Mount Huashan dangerous?

When it comes to thrill-seeking and risk-taking, I either charge in all guns blazing or I’m as paranoid as hell. And when I got to Beijing and was planning out my China trip, apparently my guns were blazing. I  chatted to some people who had been travelling around China for a while, deemed that I had booked […]
