Located nearby Hong Kong, Guangzhou(also known as "Canton") is the third biggest city in China, but is much less known internationally compared to Beijing and Shanghai. Guangzhou was a major trade port throughout the Chinese history, leaving a legacy of architectures of both Western styles and traditional Chinese styles.
It's easy to visit Guangzhou's major attractions in one day, and metro is arguably the best way to do so. Currently, there are 10 lines of metro, one of which operates on a driver-less automated system. The metros are new, clean, bright and efficient.
Uji, the home of Matcha, is a lovely town surrounded by green hills, clear rivers and streams which are perfect for cultivating green tea leaves. My cousins lived in this little town and my family often visited them when I was little. While our parents enjoyed their tea ceremony at a tea house by Uji river, my cousins and I would go to our favorite ice cream shop and indulged ourselves into creamy dreamy green matcha ice cream! Still now, their skyscraper-towering-matcha sandae is an absolute dream food!!
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.
Spend a day in the historic center of Macau! I always love ancient and historical buildings and Macau Peninsula has so many of them. This illustration highlights which buildings I've visited, and most of them are within walking distance.
If you visit Tokyo and get a chance to come around Shinjuku area, I’d like to introduce you to this amazing art supply store called SEKAIDO. In this 6 story building, you’ll find absolutely everything to make arts and craft. Stationery, papers, paintings, paintbrushes, sculpturing, clay, frames, office supplies, I can go on forever! SEKAIDO truly is an artist’s heaven and it’s the cheapest in the town! I usually meander around on the 1st floor checking on new items and always buy MONO erasers and different sizes of double-sided tapes. Then I go to the 2nd floor to savor beautiful papers, and the 3rd floor to indulge myself into the sea of colorful paintings and pastels! To finish off, I have yummy ice cream sundaes at a lovely tea lounge on the 5th floor. This place is a paradise. I wish I could live on its rooftop and be surrounded by the sea of art supplies everyday!
