Hi, folks! πŸ™‚

What You Could Get in Beijing for $10 – Your First Glimpse in Mainland China

Hi everyone! πŸ˜€

After covering Hong Kong and Macao some time ago, I’m so excited when Jade and Kev from Two Tall Travellers reached out to cover the first city in mainland China that we’re gonna talk about: the one and only capital city, Beijing.

Speaking of which, since it’s $10 series, then I don’t know who needs to hear this but the currency in mainland China is renminbi and not yuan. And you’ll get a further explanation about this later in the post.

If you kinda mistake one with another, I’m not gonna blame you as you might adapt it from watching too many Chinese movies with subtitle. Like I did in the youth. #AsianProblems

So, what could you get in Beijing for $10? And how much is $10 USD in renminbi? Go check this out! πŸ™‚

Indonesia Beyond Bali (Part 2): Where to Go and What to See in Indonesia (That Are NOT Bali)

Hi everyone! πŸ˜€

FYI, I had to postpone my Java-Bali-Gili trip due to some family matter to September. And for those who don’t know, ironically I’m an Indonesian who’s never been to Bali. So yes, the trip is going to be my first time touching down on the island of gods. Or Pulau Dewata, as we Indonesians dub the island.

Anyway, you’ve probably read my previous post that was published last week in Indonesia’s 74th Independence Day. Well, this post is gonna be the second part where I’ve compiled the list of recommended places to visit in Indonesia… Those that are NOT Bali.

I mean, as an Indonesian myself, I’m so sick of ignorant travelers who think of Bali as the whole country and not just a small province in a country called Indonesia. So, what kind of places do we have this time? Let’s check out!
