Seoul, South Korea, South Korea
I am an illustrator Yebin Mun currently living and working in Seoul. I used to go these places with my mon when she visited me. Actually, I love every part of Seoul!!!! Especiall, Bukchon hanok vvillage. I wish you could visit there oneday. You will love it.
Hong Kong, HK
Another of my favourite places in Hong Kong. One of the city's quirkiest modes of transport is the Central - Mid-levels Escalator, built as a connection between the financial district and residential areas further up the hillside.
From its starting point on Queen's Road Central, the escalator snakes its way through one of Hong Kong's oldest and most interesting neighbourhoods - an eclectic blend of wet markets, colonial structures, hip restaurants, watering holes and art galleries. Like the city as a whole, it keeps a precarious balance between age-old tradition and unashamed modernity.
Japan is a fascinating place. It has everything - islands, forests, mountains, volcanoes, rivers and lakes... This map explores just some of the geography of the country. Often the initial image 'Japan' conjures up is of a megacity like Tokyo, but we should not forget the beautiful landscape that covers over 2/3 of the country.

From the palace the streets go out like rays through the houses and the huge forest- that is why Karlsruhe is also called "the fan city". The sights are from 18th century onwards. It's a little piece of heaven where you can be in touch with nature, feel like royalty in the royal garden, and still be in a very contemporary city.
The outdoor food markets of the Netherlands are what I miss most when I am abroad. Tourists are lured to awful places and never seem to make it to the real thing. So I thought I should show you a few - and the best Dutch Treat to have when you get there ;)
Some of my favorites places to do, to see and to taste. Start at the windmills in Zuid Holland (since 1740), Tulips (since 1593), Lakenvelder cow (since 12th century), and go on until you end at the ice cream store Talimini in Zutphen (now).
Mastic/Mastic Beach/Shirley is a hidden gem for all summertime activities. Enjoy fishing, swimming, tanning, boating, crabbing, surfing, rowing...pretty much anything beach/sealife related that involves a "ing" at the end.
If you're lucky enough to win a camping spot for the week of July 4th (the spaces sell out in seconds early December 3rd) you're in prime location for watching fireworks over The Bay.
For food, avoid "fast food alley" at all costs and opt for the local stops. Ice cream cottage, Mike's place, TJ's and Nino's have been around for forever and are much loved. Also check out Frank & Son's Italian bakery and Mama Lisa's pizzeria(their grandma pizza is amazing!) on Montauk Highway.
