trip to Hua Hin and Bangkok

UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_3c43

Those days were 36-37 degree, humid and hot. To show our respects, we chose black clothes in this stifling weather on the day we visited the Grand Palace in Bangkok.

King Bhumibo Adulyadej has passed away more than 8 months, but this country still deeply mourned over the death of their beloved king. During this 5-day trip in Bangkok and HuaHin, we saw mourning halls in every corner. It is something that will never happen in my country – Taiwan. I can’t imagine, but truly respect.

I think all my western friends in TW are so in love with Philippines.They always told me how amazing this place is, but I never had a chance to visit.

Philippines is my no.26 country. Beach and sunshine, it was definitely one of the happiest trip I’ve ever had.

Chinese Disneyland -【Shanghai, China】🇨🇳

The new Disneyland in Shanghai, China

IMG_2431.jpg

Shanghai Disneyland has opened since June, 2016. Even most reviews from Taiwan newspaper and blogs were really negative, we still did not want to miss this great opportunity to visit there.

It is my 3rd time in Shanghai. The only available time to the park was on Sunday. Well.. I think all amusement parks in the world are crowded as hell on Sunday. Also, China is a country with more than 1.35 billion people. If it is crowded, it must be the worst ever.

back to this beautiful country

unadjustednonraw_thumb_2c7d

I have been to Singapore several times. Last year, I got a chance to visit there again for business trip. Actually, I received a mail to join a training in India at first. I was super exciting! India, how awesome! Indian food and another new adventure!I already opened google map to check where to go, but the training was moved to Singapore in the end.

Anyway, I love Singapore. It is a small country but have many things to see. You can experience Indians , Chinese, Western, Malaysians… many different cultures here. And this city is super charming. Since the airport, It made me feel like entering a big garden instead of a busy city.

Northeast Coast -【Taiwan】🇹🇼

A day to Taipei’s country side

thumb_img_4499_1024

Taiwan is an island surrounded by ocean. There are many things to do and see in this beautiful island. The east side is within incredible natural scenery. The south is perfect for surfing , beach and food(for me). And the west and north are more for cities and modern life.

Most people visit Taiwan will choose the capital – Taipei as their first stop. However, if you only stay few days or a weekend here, I strongly suggest you to save at least one day to travel out of the city to see the real beauty of this island.

Wild, Wild East -【Mongolia】🇲🇳

Spectacular view in Gorkhi-Terelj Nation Park

Negative0-02-00A(1)

The image of Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia,  is not really matching up what most people think about Mongolia- the nomadic lifestyle. It is a big city, with tall buildings, cars, clubs, hotels and fancy departments stores. However, the story is totally different in the country side- with open fields, mountains, animals and many others!  It will be a waste if you visit Mongolia without out visiting the wild.

For travelers who only have few days in Mongolia, Terelj National Park will be a perfect choice. After 1.5-2.5hrs drive from Ulaanbaatar, you are out in the wild to enjoy the great nature of Mongolia.

Follow Khan’s Steps -【Mongolia】🇲🇳

visit the biggest statue of the greatest king- chinggis khan statue complex

Screen Shot 2016-06-30 at 3.38.47 PM.png

When I told my friends about traveling to Mongolia, most of them had so many questions about this country. For almost everyone, what came to their mind were horses, steppe, gers and Khan. Some friends even thought most Mongolians are still live in ger, speak Chinese and have deep connection with China.  Lol

Naaaaah…Mongolia has nothing to do with China, and they have their own language- Mongolian. Indeed, there are nomadic people live in country side. However, Ulaanbaatar, the capital city, is a modern big city. I started my adventure from UB, and enjoyed 2 weeks of nomadic life. 🙂

Sun, Beach, Beers and Friends!

Why Almeria? Just becoz its ma friend’s hometown.! I have to admit that I never heard about this place until we met. Before this trip, I went to bookstores in Taiwan for some guides of Spain. However, I can’t even find “Almeria” on the map! lol. Anyway,  after few days in Barcelona, I flew to Almeria directly and started this trip with many unknowns.

Red, Blue and White -【Arequipa,Peru】🇵🇪

Santa Catalina Monastery , Arequipa, Peru

Negative0-01-00(1)Arequipa was my last stop in Peru. My travel route was clockwise, for getting used to the height. Indeed, even if this city is located at 2328m, I didn’t feel AMS anymore. Arequipa is the 2nd biggest city in Peru. However, not just like the prototype of metropolis, the historic part of this city has its unique charm.

Arequipa is surrounded by volcanoes. Since that, the old area of this city are with buildings constructed by local white volcanic stones called sillar. It made Arequipa be known as “the white city”. In addition, being influenced by Europeans, those buildings are constructed with baroque style. The historic area is really beautiful and has became a famous spot in Peru.
