    The last stop on our Vietnam trip was Ho Chi Minh City (we travelled North to South). Our overnight bus arrived at ~4:30 am which was much earlier than expected. We got lucky that the bus stopped at the park that was right by our hostel (NgocThao Guesthouse – I would not suggest it though. […]

    Dalat - Elephant Falls

    After spending two days in Hanoi we woke up early to catch a plane to Da Lat. At the airport there was a shuttle service that took us half an hour to downtown Da Lat for only 40,000 baht. The shuttle was suppose to drop us off at our hostel but instead dropped us off […]

    After visiting some of Beijing’s main tourist sites I decided to go to Vietnam for my last trip on exchange. First stop: Hanoi!!! To get to Vietnam we took a flight that had an overnight layover in Guangzhou. We arrived late in the evening and therefore the airport was basically empty. Therefore, because I had a […]

    798 Art District

    Super short post but I thought I would just put up some photos of 798 Art District because I really enjoyed my time there.

    The flight to Thailand did not prepare me for the Bangkok heat. Our AirAsia flight was absolutely freezing (I had to put on 2 sweaters) so when we landed the heat truly hit me. Tip: if you ever fly any discount carrier in Asia make sure to pay for baggage beforehand. Paying at check in […]

    For Qingming break we had 5 days off so I obviously had to take that opportunity and use it to travel to the tropical province of Hainan. Olalala, get ready for some bikini and speedo pictures. JKJK it wasn’t cutting season yet. No one wants to see that. To get to our resort we flew […]

  • Xian

    Mount Huashan

    One of the places I had never been to in China was Xi’an. However, I definitely wanted to visit in order to check out the Terracotta Army and Mount Huashan. So I set off with some of my friends at Tsinghua to visit this city. After a short plane ride from Beijing, my gbf and I arrived […]
