Beijing: Transport

Beijing: Transport

One of the biggest downfalls of backpacking cities is the sheer size and distance needed to travel from A to B. Everything is spread out far and wide requiring a network of different transport to get there. Despite the horrendously enormous size of Beijing and its surrounding burrows, its surprising to find such efficient and…

Beijing Guide: The Summer Palace

Beijing Guide: The Summer Palace

China as a whole has an excessive nature; bigger is better. This can be seen with the endlessly snaking wonder of the world, and the city centre holding the infamous Tiananmen square and the monumental structures that surround it. However when it comes to shear grandness, an amazing example of extravagant beauty. The Summer Palace…

Travel Guide: Beijing

Travel Guide: Beijing

China stand proudly as one of the world’s biggest superpowers, so its only appropriate that their capital should boast the development, history and culture that has made this nation great. A unique nation which stands alone with its incredibly powerful and influential culture that has seeped into every corner of the Earth. There is no…

Beijing Guide: Yonghegong Lama Temple

Beijing Guide: Yonghegong Lama Temple

Nestled in the heart of the city in between the bright lights and chaotic streets of central Beijing, you’ll find the peaceful oasis of spirituality known by many names.

Beijing – The Most Secure City on Earth?

Beijing – The Most Secure City on Earth?

On first impressions to the bewildered traveller, Beijing might look like the most secure and protected city on Earth. The sheer number and variety of security found throughout this enormous capital makes it seem so. It can leave a very confusing impression, particularly after some lasting observation. Of course there’s plenty of malicious rumours and…

Bangkok

Bangkok

Bangkok: a city with much expectation, which should of been its downfall. I made that mistake with Bali, such high hopes for somewhere which had been given so much hype as a paradise. Pegged as a highlight before my arrival, only to be thoroughly disappointed by the bleak mark of the tourist trade. Hordes of…

Being an English Teacher: Toddlers Vs Teens

Being an English Teacher: Toddlers Vs Teens

Certainly, I’m not your typical primary or high-school teacher in more ways than one. The biggest difference is rather than exclusively teaching children of one certain age, I teach a broad spectrum. My students range from attitude filled 12-year-old teens to tiny 3-year-old toddlers. The methods and persona used to teach these varying ages of…

The DMZ (Demilitarized Zone), Korea

The DMZ (Demilitarized Zone), Korea

Backpacking follows a predictable set of events; first follow the well-beaten tracks, before seeking a unique adventure not many get to see. The DMZ (Demilitarized Zone) marks the fragile divide between the borders of both Korean countries. The heavily guarded separation between the two keeps the fragile illusion of peace while on the edge of…

Seoul

Seoul

Seoul; the capital of South Korea, kimchee and K-pop. This city has lived up to its big name as a booming 24-7 city nestled beside the madness of its eccentric neighbour. Vibes of historical Chinese influence with waves of modern Japanese technology, this city stands out as a major Asian capital.   The city is…
