Paris: A Different Guide to the City of Light

Tiếng Việt

Writing about a top destination like Paris is never an easy task. Due to its popularity, I didn’t even know where to start. I think it is pointless to write about Tour Eiffel, Notre Dame de Paris or Louvre because millions of people saw these places on their first visit, and I assume the same amount of people already wrote about it. So I decided to write about something different, something less popular.

Sylt and Rügen: The Tale of Two Seas

Tiếng Việt

Travelling to Germany for a beach vacation seems odd for foreign tourists. Against charming old towns and fairytale castles, it is easy to forget about the natural beauty of this country. Indeed, the popularity of Germany’s coast is hardly comparable to those in Spain, France or Italy, but believe me, it is no less spectacular.

The Rejuvenation of Seoul

Tiếng Việt

A busy commuter highway was transformed into a nature-filled public area. An abandoned stadium was replaced by a world-class exhibition centre. And on the site of the old campus, a man-made canyon was created. Seoul has received a major facelift for the last few years. From a mere industrial centre in the 1960s, it has grown into a modern, eco-friendly capital that many cities in the world want to model after.

Berlin Mitte: The City’s Heart and Soul

Tiếng Việt

More than just the centre of a city, Berlin Mitte is the perfect overture to all that is idiosyncratic about German capital – a dynamic, world-opening city with a chequered history. Tragedies occurred in this borough, but so did joy and celebration. It’s also here that policies are made, art is created and literature is written. In short, Mitte is Berlin’s heart and soul.

Hanover: There are more than just CeBIT

Tiếng Việt

Lacking the charm of neighbouring Hansa cities, Hanover has never scored high on the list of most favourite destinations in Germany. Most people come here for CeBIT – the world’s largest trade fair in the computer industry. Many others assume that this place is solely an industrial centre with nothing else to see. Hidden beneath this “hi-tech” identity is, however, a city full of history and cultural heritage which are only visible to those with patience and a keen eye.

Ha Long: The Bay of the Descending Dragon

Boasting an ethereal beauty, Ha Long Bay is unsurprisingly one of the most popular sites in Vietnam. Its name is recognised globally, and millions of people came here to behold this natural wonder. Nevertheless, not many visitors know about the mystery beneath that name. In Han-Viet (Old Vietnamese), Ha Long literally means “descending dragon” and it originates from a legend on this ancient land.

Centuries-old history, spectacular landscape, and one-of-a-kind culture – Japan is an amazing destination for so many reasons. But for foodies, Japanese cuisine alone is reason enough to visit.
