A Complete Guide to Train Travel in China

China is an off-the-beaten-path travellers paradise. There’s no specific path through the country, no tourist shuttles transporting people to each destination, and very few bars and restaurants catered especially for backpackers. Because of all of this, China can seem a little daunting; but in reality it is very easily navigable, even if you’re a solo traveller. […]

Backpacking China: Itinerary for First Timers

China is a pretty daunting country to travel in. Whether you’re travelling solo through China or exploring the country with a group, it’s a good idea to thoroughly research and plan your trip there.

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?
