Happy 5 years to the blog! It’s been a wonderful 5 years of sharing and traveling — and here’s my yearly travel reflections and favourite moments of the year.
I had a lovely day exploring the port city of Tamsui in New Taipei City. And then come night, I visited the city’s Christmasland for a Christmassy lights extravaganza.
My experience witnessing the most beautiful autumn foliage at one of the most popular places to see it in South Korea — the Naejangsan National Park.
A lovely autumn’s weekend in the city of Yeosu — visiting beaches, parks, local sights, and having one of the best South Korean meals… raw crabs!
Here’s how I spent 3 days in the Japanese city of Osaka — visiting castles, temples, walking streets, and just basking in the neon lights and colorful signboards that is Osaka.
A 3-day itinerary in Okayama — and I spent it in the midst of gorgeous gardens, stunning castles, shrines and temples; and the most awesome food… AND surrounded by the colors of autumn.
Travel Video: Here’s a video montage of all my favorite moments while searching for autumn colors at the Daisetsuzan National Park, and exploring Hokkaido’s capital city, Sapporo.
Sapporo is modern, dynamic and compelling; and during my visit in autumn, beautiful. I only had one day in the city, so I made use of my time to sample what Sapporo is famous for; the beer, the food and the shopping.
Hokkaido, the northernmost island of Japan, is the first place to witness the autumn foliage in the country… and the Daisetsuzan National Park is the area to catch that first glimpse.
