Travelling with parents can be a huge headache if you are the one planning as you have to keep everyone informed. Recently, there is an increase in intergenerational travelling, it does not have to be travelling with your kids but also can be with your parents. I listed down 10 things you might want to take note before bringing your parents overseas hoping to have a free and peaceful trip.
After visiting the NSeoul Tower, I meet my friends at Myeong Dong area for shopping. We did not have any plans for our dinner, hence as we walked along the street we saw this army stew (budae-jjigae) restaurant that caught our attention, since we were craving for some spicy food too. We did not realise that it was actually a famous restaurant which is owned by a Korean singer and there are two outlets in Seoul. (more…)
I always wanted to visit the Namsan tower or N Seoul Tower, I did not have the chance to visit it when I was in Korea 6 years ago. Therefore, I told myself for this trip I have to go and take some photos there. Based on my memory I thought that getting to Namsan tower is easy, but it was not. I wanted to go up to Namsan tower via cable car, however, after researching on ways to get there and various comments from others, I decided to take a bus up instead. In this post, it will cover the transportation, where to purchase the ticket, redemption and what is there to see and recommendations.
A must-have dish when you are in Korea, Korea samgyetang also known as Korean ginseng chicken soup, it is popular to be eaten on the hottest and most sultry summer days in Korea, the sambok (삼복) days, Chobok (초복), Jungbok (중복), and Malbok (말복) as a food that restore vitality.
A half day visit to the Atsuta ward which is located at the southern part of the Nagoya City. We went to Japan’s second most respected Shinto shrine, Atsuta Jingu and the old vestige pier, Shichiri-no-Watashi which is now a park where the locals and tourists can have a short walk or rest. (more…)
When you are in Nagoya one of the must-try cuisines would be the TanTan/Dandan Men. My friend was saying I should try out the Tantanmen in Nagoya. To be honest, I am not sure why? But it was listed in my “to eat list”.
We were staying near the Nagoya Station and were pampered with lots of good and famous food nearby. The underground shopping street ESCA is the place for quick meal if you are stopping by at Nagoya station. I got to know this restaurant as it was ranked the top 7 restaurants for Tantanmen in Nagoya, you will see long queue during lunch and dinner time.
Decided to head out to the suburban area of Osaka as we are not staying in the city centre. We stayed near to this ward called Sakai. Not many people have heard of it, however, if you have been to Osaka a few times you might be interested to visit this place. It has always been on my go-to list because of the photos I have seen online. Recently, it has garnered some attention due to the advertising that is done for its annual new year event.
One of the reason to visit Sakai ward would be to ride on the Chin Chin Densha which would pass by the residential area and the older district of Osaka. In this post we will be looking at how to purchase the tram pass and some of the places to visit.
Have you heard about the city airport at midtown, where you can skip the queue at the airport and have your baggage check-in and departure immigration done?
I did not know about it until I was searching for the transportation to Gangnam, it was then I chanced upon this service that was shown at the official website. Having to know about this service make my return trip a swift and easy one, I was a little unsure and insecure because there is not much information about it.
Since i have the experience now, I hope to share this information here for more people to benefit from it. This post will be a step by step guide for travellers who wish to use the city airport terminal service at Samsung-dong City Airport Terminal (COEX).
