Okinawa, Nara, Osaka and Fukuoka were places I wanted to visit or revisit while staying in Japan. But upon certain circumstances, I could only travel to Osaka. The atmosphere of Kansai for my third visit was much better. Even though I was only there for the weekend, I got to see more of Osaka than I did back in 2015.
A range of temples, castles and shrines are free to visit all over Japan – at least the ones I visited are. Some of the most famous ones are on this list but at least you’ll get an idea of where you should go to while visiting these regions.
There are so many things you can do in Hong Kong, not just around the central area. It is also an island where there is a lot you can finish doing in a week, tourist wise.
For recommendations, I think the best areas to go to are Jordan Road, Mongkok, Stanley and Butterfly Beach. Causeway Bay is another place but I have not been there enough to recommend what to do. But I’m going to start with some places that you might be interested in before going to the major areas.
My travels to Hong Kong were mainly to go with a good work friend. It is also a place that I have a lot of friends whose background or have family that come from Hong Kong. Although this was my first time, there’s a lot of things that you should know about upon going to this island.
