Eating as much food as possible in Hong Kong

Hong Kong – what a place.

I have a few words to describe this city: Efficient, busy, fast-paced, and hot.

Over the course of 250 years, Bagan’s rulers and their wealthy subjects constructed over 10,000 religious monuments (approximately 1000 stupas, 10,000 small temples and 3000 monasteries) in an area of 104 square kilometres (40 sq mi) in the Bagan plains.

Through my eyes: walking through Hanoi, Vietnam

Melbourne’s been sweltering. And I’m not a summer person. I don’t like extreme heat or humidity.

Unless I’m in Vietnam…

Parts of Hanoi are tourist-friendly “big city,” while other parts, like the produce markets, are still so simple and local. 30 more words
