China, which is best known as “the Land of Dragon” is one of the great countries in the world that have over five thousand years of history. As the most populous nation in the world with over 1.3 billion of people, it has twenty-two provinces, five autonomous regions, four municipalities and two autonomous Special Administrative Regions (Hong Kong and Macau).

The People’s Republic of China has a very unique landscape, as it greatly differs from the subtropical forests in the wet south to the deserts in the dry north!

Suzhou, a beautiful ancient city in Jiangsu province, is one of the magnificent cities in China. For your information, it’s famed for its beautiful gardens and traditional waterside architecture. It's also been known as “The Eastern Venice”.

Johnson Gao, the author of “Suzhou – The Eastern Venice” mentioned in his book that, “There is the heaven upon the sky; There are two beautiful cities, Suzhou and Hangzhou, on the Earth!”

Suzhou is a city that connected with a complicated system of rivers. You might able to see over thousands of bridges scattering all over the Suzhou City.

Honestly, it’s totally a pleasure, especially when you’re sitting on the rental boat passing through a lot of ancient stone-arch bridges.

According to the China’s history, Suzhou was once the capital of the Kingdom of Wu from the 12th to 4th centuries BC! In addition, it’s also the heaven for scholars and skilled craftsmen in the ancient as well.

There are many historical monuments in Suzhou City, such as Pan Gate, Huqiu Temple, Ping Jiang Road, Hanshan Temple, The Lingering Garden (One of the largest and most important classical gardens in Suzhou; It has been declared as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1997) and so on…

By the way, it’s definitely an enjoyable, by having dinner at Li Gong Ti and viewing the fascinating night city night view!

Kiss Goodbye to the Nasty Sunlight

December 28th 2012 03:27
Travel is supposed to be a fun yet interesting activity. However, I saw many travelers, especially the women (Sorry, I’ve no offense to the ladies, but I spoke out the truth) always covering themselves with thick clothes!

Honestly, you don’t have to torture yourself with the clothes, if you’re practicing these following tips…

Sun Protection
You should avoid direct contact with the sunlight. Wear a sunglass or apply the sun block that rich with SPF when necessary. A Fisherman’s hat is a good equipment to block the strong UV sunlight!

When you’re losing too much of water from your body, the metabolism of your body is rapidly decreasing. In this moment, you should drink plenty of water and eat a lot of vegetables or fruits. Intake more foods, which is rich with Vitamin A, C and D is good for your health during traveling.

Medicines or first aid kit
If you’re entering the forests or reservoirs, remember to bring the insect repellents. Also, keeps the first aid kit beside you. For those who have motion sicknesses, it’s better to equip yourself with motion sickness pills or sugar cubes.

When you’re visiting the countries with hot climate, then it’s necessary to wear the casual clothes with lighter color, as it reflects most of the heat out from the person. In cooler climate countries, it’s a must to equip yourself with thick fur, darker color clothes.

Vietnam, one of the countries in Southeast Asia, is full with many beautiful yet historical monuments. I’ve been to Vietnam three times and visited most of the important places in Vietnam.

Instead of the two main cities, Ho Chi Minh a.k.a Saigon and Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam, I would like to mention another attractive city in Vietnam, Hue!

Unlike the other two metropolitan cities, Hue is located in the center of Vietnam and the capital city of Thua Thien-Hue Province. According to the local history, it was once the imperial capital of the Nguyen Dynasty from 1802 to 1945.

Undoubtedly, Hue is best known for its historic monuments and architecture. UNESCO had certified it as one of the World Heritage Sites. Furthermore, Hue is also one of the four World Heritage Sites in Vietnam!

Hue is famous with The Hue’s Citadel, which is occupying a huge, walled area on the north side of the Perfume River. The Forbidden City is situated in the Citadel. In this case, only the emperor and concubines are allowed to enter into the Forbidden City. The punishment for the trespassers… Death penalty!

In addition, Hue is also the hometown of the tombs of several Vietnam’s emperors, such as Minh Mang, Khai Dinh and Tu Duc. The Thien Mu Pagoda, which is the largest pagoda in Hue, is the official symbol of the Hue’s city!

By the way, the Hue Museum of Royal Fine Arts is another must visit place in Hue, as it keeps many ancient artifacts since hundred years ago.

If you’ve the chance travel to Vietnam, then don’t forget to leave your footprint in this beautiful picturesque ancient city, Hue!


Hokkaido, which is formerly known as Ezo, is the Northeast and second largest island in Japan. It surrounds by the sea and separates from the Honshu’s mainland by the Tsugaru Strait.

Even though Hokkaido is the second largest island in Japan, but its density level is the lowest, as there are only 66.8 /km
