Kina er helt unik, og jeg har haft fornøjelsen af at opleve det spændende land over to omgange; første gang på et skoleophold i Beijing med tur til Xi’an og efterfølgende på en rejse til Shanghai, Suzhou, Hangzhou, Huangshan og Guilin. Mine guides hertil inkluderer især tips til hvordan du kan gøre din tur til Kina mindre besværlig, selv hvis du ikke taler kinesisk. Blandt indlæggene vil du også kunne finde guides til både Hong Kong og Macao

5 BILLIGE OG LOKALE SPISESTEDER I HONG KONG

Hong Kong er ikke en billig feriedestination. Byen med de høje skyskrabere, dyre mærkevarebutikker og utallige michelin-restauranter er oftest lig med en dyr storbyferie fyldt med shopping, spisning og lange nætter på de fine natklubber. Men man kan sagtens tage til Hong Kong uden at gøre bankmanden nervøs, og et godt sted at starte er […]

OFF THE BEATEN PATH IN HONG KONG

Normally people associate Hong Kong with skyscrapers, the Peak, shopping, and nightlife, but what most people don’t know before visiting Hong Kong, is that actually more than 75% of the area is actually covered in nature.

OFF THE BEATEN PATH // GUILIN

Det sidste sted, vi besøgte under vores Kina rejse var Guilin i Guangxi i det sydlige Kina. Det var den første by i Kina til at udvikle tourisme efter 1949, og er dermed fyldt med turistfælder. Derfor valgte vi i stedet at dreje uden om horderne af turister, og booke en airbnb i en lille […]

PORTERS, FOG & TOURIST TRAPS // HUANGSHAN

Omkring 300km fra Hangzhou ligger byen Huangshan og bjerget af samme navn, og siden vi allerede var i nærheden, slog vi selvfølgelig et smut forbi bjergene. Vores oplevelse var lidt blandet, og vi gjorde mange fejl, som vi ikke var forberedt på, men mere omkring det i en guide meget snart. Derudover var der ekstremt […]

A FEW ASIAN BEAUTY BUYS

På vores rejse igennem Kina, blev langt størstedelen af vores penge brugt på mad og oplevelser, men slog alligevel et smut forbi SASA, da vi ankom til Hong Kong og købte lidt koreansk hudpleje. Èn ting, de i den grad kan finde ud af, at lave herovre, er ansigtsmasker. Så selvfølgelig har jeg allerede fået […]

POSTKORT // HANGZHOU

Min yndlingsby på vores Kinatur var uden tvivl Hangzhou, som jeg egentlig ikke havde hørt så meget om, før Line Sofie læste der for nogle år siden. Men hold op, hvor er jeg faldet for byen. Så smuk (på trods af regn non-stop), og rigtig Kina idyl.

POSTKORT // SHANGHAI

Èt problem ved at prøve på at køre en blog samtidig med at man rejser rundt i Kina, er uden tvivl deres ufatteligt langsomme indlæg. Derfor ville jeg lige tjekke kort ind med lidt billeder fra vores tid i Shanghai. Vi ankommer til Hong Kong i weekenden, og der håber jeg på at kunne opdatere […]

BILLEDER FRA MIT 2014
