I have heard about Shanxi province before, as the names like Wutaishan, Pingyao and Datong are very famous around China and if someone is a little bit interested in the Chinese culture, also should have ...

My 2014 travelling year in China and not only.

A stroll along the Imperial capital of China.
China is big, but with the scale here comes the diversity. Every Chinese city or town has its own distinguishing features that make it so different from one another. When visiting a new place - and it doesn’t matter how long you stay there – there are always “must-do-s”, “must-see-s” and “must-eat-s”.

China and South Korea in the eye of a traveler.
Having lived in China, Beijing, for four years, it seems inevitable to come across some parts of Korean culture. My university classmates were mostly from South Korea, there are Korean streets, markets and restaurants in Beijing, and even the whole districts dubbed by the locals the Korean districts, like Wudaokou or Wangjing. So, while in China, you cannot help coming across the fragments of the Korean culture. Actually, the thought of visiting South Korea haunted me for a while until I f ...
