Tokyo – Where Old Japan Meets the New One

Wow… what a city… it’s  not that it is so beautiful but it is sooo interesting – the colors, tastes, fashion, the rush of the people, their culture and much more is probably what’s making Tokyo so famous! Continue Reading…

A Fascinating Day in Kyoto, Japan

What a warm welcome to Japan – a truly beautiful and intriguing place with a lot of different cultural aspects and ancient history & apparently it is the best time of year to visit – Autumn, when all the leaves are changing their colors to red and the weather is not too cold yet. Continue Reading…

Shanghai – The Pearl Of Asia

Moving one step closer to our new home at Sydney we stopped in Shanghai for 3 days – mixing business & pleasure.
We arrived at late evening and went for an “hot pot” dinner – that means that you get a hot soup of your choice and kind of like in fondue – you just trough inside meat, fish and/or seafood (whatever you choose to) and cook it inside as much as you want to. Nice experience and warmly recommended but the only thing is that it was ONLY in Chinese so lucky for us we had Phillip or else we would of got lost in translation… Continue Reading…

The Wetland of Hong Kong

Well it’s our second time in Hong Kong this year and it is nice going back to a place you already know.
Since during our last visit we pretty much covered most of the main tourist attractions we were left with only several places to see and one of them was the Wetland Park. Continue Reading…

A Lost Passport in Hong Kong

Well, this is something some of you may already heard of, but genius me (Yifat) – I had managed to lose my passport in Hong Kong…

The thing is that it is one thing to lose it (maybe it was even got stolen) but another thing is to discover this while you are at the airport, at the check-in counter, 2 hours before the flight… Not a pleasant experience, believe me. Continue Reading…

Lantau Spiritual Experience

Today we have a lot of beautiful pictures for you since we were in a special place – Lantau Island.
This island is a part of HK and you can reach it in a 35 min subway ride which connects it to the main central island.
Most of Lantau is “just” nature and the small populated part is built in giant skyscrapers.
What we did (like most tourists do) is took the Ngong Ping 360 Cable Ride – which is a 25 min exciting ride on a glassed cable car (which means that even the floor is made out of glass and you can see the ground on your way up/down). The way was a bit misty but fabulous… Continue Reading…

Macau Do’s and Don’t

Yesterday, we took a one day trip to Macau, Asia’s gambling capital to check out from a close distance what’s all the excitement about this island and whether it’s worth it. The day went a bit awkward for us, so I’ll try to describe it more or less objectively, but keep this fact in mind when reading the post …

Macau is actually like another country (a Special Administrative Region of China, if to be precise) with all the border control procedures, passport control on both sides in both ways etc., so after passing all the formalities, we’d boarded the TurboJet ferry and after about an hour of sailing we’d reached the main Macau Ferry Terminal (where we had to pass the passport control).
