Trip Moment Recommendations
I come alive in the night 🧱🏙️
If you want to see architecture with a European feel, stop by Lijunpangdou Square in Zhuhai. I would advise you to visit during the night for it is lovely to see the building with it’s lights.
There are a handful of restaurants to choose to have dinner. If the place is crowded like when I went, you might need to wait an hour before your order arrives at the table. I went during the Labor Day holiday and that’s how it was. Hopefully outside of a holiday, it will be better.
Something weird though, the bathrooms have symbols for both men and women. However there was only a bathroom for men when I checked on 2 floors I went to. There was no other option but to go in the men’s bathroom beyond the urinals and use the toilet there.
I spent about 3 hours here. One hour just waiting on food. 🤦🏾♀️ Still great architecture though! 👍🏽

A Light Up Shopping Experience @ Bei Jing Lu
#shopandtrip #mustvist #foodie #shopping #guangzhou #china #beijinglu
Bei Jing Lu is not located in Beijing, but instead located in thr city of Guangzhou! This is a popular place to visit especially at night where the shopping malls and shop houses come to live with brightly lighted lights. Even the famous temple called Dafo Temple where this temple was built more than 1000 years ago being brightly lighted and smack right in the middle of the shopping district of Bei Jing Lu.
I recommend to come here after 7pm, this is where the lights will all come to live! Apart from shopping there are also loads of eateries here! Takeaways of local Chinese food and even eateries that have been there for years serving traditional Chinese cuisine like claypot rice! Now that was something authentic and cheap too!

Magnificent Guanyin Goddess of Nanshan! 🇨🇳
The enormous statue of Guanyin Goddess of Nanshan is one of the tallest in the world located in Sanya, Hainan Province. It is a famous attraction in China that you must visit especially if you beleive in Buddhism. The thousands of mini golden statues inisde the temple are one of a kind.
Cameras aren't allowed once you enter the temple so I couldn't show you how emmaculate the statues are inside. Very clean and well maintained. One of the best temple that we have entered in Asia and we have been around. So it is worth the money.
The temple is surrounded with a massive and beautiful park so you can easily spend your entire day here.
Ticket price: Main entrance ticket costs 108 but in order for you to enter the other temple then you have to pay extra. The main Guanyin Statue temple charges 25rmb per person.. So better yet prepare 150-180 in case you wanna see every temple inside that require extra payments .
1. Rent an ebike so you can just drive from your hotel. Such a fun experience

瀑洋湖湿地公园 Luyanghu wetland park
I recently had the pleasure of visiting Luyanghu Wetland Park and I got a great surprise with the beauty of this place. I travelled in train from Shanghai and it took less than three hours to get there. The closest train station to this wetland is Gaoyou.
From the moment I arrived, I was greeted by breathtaking views of lush green marshland and a stunning trees over the water surface. The park provides a wonderful opportunity to rent boats to explore the area, it is such an instagramable place.
Overall, my experience at Luyanghu Wetland Park was an extremely enjoyable one. I was able to appreciate the beauty of nature and experience a peaceful oasis away from the hustle and bustle of the city. I would highly recommend a visit here to anyone looking for a day out in the fresh air.

King Bottle-O Restaurant 🍱
King Bottle-O is a wine bar & restaurant in downtown Shanghai so it can be reached easily by taxi or public transport. It is located exactly in front of Moller Villa Hotel.
There are a variety of wine displayed everywhere, you just choose, grab the bottle and drink! The food is mostly for meat lovers and focuses mostly on beef and some sea-food. The concept is slightly different than a regular restaurant as you just check the refrigerators and choose whatever you want to eat. It’s like going to the supermarket but they prepare the food for you.
It is a medium size restaurant with a nice atmosphere, food is nicely presented.

Go to Tibet.
Even though I generally do not like travelling with groups - your companies - Tibet was the exception I had to accept if I wanted to go. As foreigners we have to go we need a special permit that tours will help you obtain.
These are pictures of many different places during my 9 day tour in Tibet. All tour companies provide more all less the same Itinerary to groups of foreigners with the highlight being Everest base camp.
My general itinerary
- Xining to Lhasa by train for slow gain in altitude
- Lhasa - Shigatse - Gyantse - Everest Base Camp - Shigatse - Lhasa.
- with famous places visits like the Potala Palace, Jokhang Temple, Yamdrock lake etc.
Be ready to spend most your time in a coach to move from place to place. The place is big but the views are amazing. #china #tibet #chinatravel
