Trip Moment Recommendations
Took my first trip to Shanghai Disneyland and it was awesome.
Adulting is hard but when there are places like Disney it surely takes a bit of the pressure off.
😫The only 2 things I disliked was the queuing up to get into the park and the fact that tripods are not allowed.
🦶 Although my feet and back were aching for days afterward it was a really great experience. Dreamt of going to Disney since I was about 7 or 8 years old and it finally happened 💃🏾
Some of the best parts were Soaring, Pirates of The Caribbean, Slinky Dog and of course The Parade.

Tonno Bridge in Orimattila
If you drive from Helsinki to Orimattila using the main highway number 4, you will automatically arrive to the vicinity of Tonno bridge. Actually the name is Tönnö Bridge so the O-letters both have two dots on them and they’re pronounced differently in Finnish.
The bridge was Finished in 1911 and it’s the first steel enforced concrete bridge built to the highway system in Finland (or in the Finnish highway system to be precise).
The bridge is 37 meters long and 6,5 meters wide. The building cost was spectacularly low in today’s standards costing only some 2500 US dollars to build. It was in full daily use until year 1971 when it was replaced by a nearby newer and bigger bridge which also leads the traffic away from the nearby houses. The bridge was accepted to be a landmark and museum bridge in 1982 and renovated between 1986-1987.
Tonno bridge can be accessed for free by anyone around the clock and the attractions signs are in place to guide people there. There’s also a suitable place to park the car just near the bridge.

Step in live painting: Hongcun village 宏村
A must see after the famous Yellow Mountains is the beautiful 宏村 Hongcun village.
You'll have the feeling to enter into one of the ancient Chinese paintings: little canals, cobblestones streets, picturesque bridges, white buildings and rice fields all around. Those are some of the reasons why this historical site well deserved the World Heritage recognition. l went during winter time and definitely the fog and cloudy weather gave the environment a more mystical athmosphere!
🚌 it’s recommended to take a tour bus from Tunxi Bus Station in downtown Huangshan
🚕 one hour drive by taxi from the Yellow Mountain area.

Spent a weekend climbing around the hills and skyscrapers of Chongqing. A city built on levels , the city at times felt like a maze, but with things to find around every corner, it was very much worth it. 📸

Hefei art gallery in Binhu Tangxihe park
Binhu is a place in Hefei that is a bit far from the city center. So, if you’ve got the chance to come and visit hefei, I suggest you visit Binhu. You can see different kinds of parks and lakes. This art museum is inside Binhu Tangxihe Park. You will be amazed with its interesting architecture, structure, a very artistic thing to see. Moreover, this park has a lot to offer, a huge space for running, riding a bike, a good place for picnic 🧺 and also for relaxing. There’s also a man made Beach 🏖. This is one of my favorite 🤩 place there. This is open 24/7 #tripaway #tripblazers #tigeryear2022 #momentsmission#chinatravel
The unpopular jiangbin park!
like I’ve said in my last few posts this place is not a Very Popular place in Suzhou. Only a few people that I know have actually heard about this place and that was basically after recommended this Spot to them.
The first time that I’ve visited this place was purely by accident I searched on my maps for any nearby parks and I noticed a very small park that was located in￼￼ The southern region of Suzhou. This place has a very unique and beautiful aesthetic. you are greeted by a very glorious entrance. And as you walk around the park you would notice different temples and different sculptures And monuments that really make this park very beautiful￼.

Layed back central
Rieti: the center of Italy (literally!)
The tiny San Rufo square in Rieti is considered the exact center of Italy, but this characteristic town has much more to offer, these are some of the other interesting sights:
📌 Do not miss Probably one of the most evocative vaccination hub spaces that you will ever see, former convent and cloister of the church of San Domenico: look up, because these frescoes are wonderful!
📌 Palazzo Vincentini
📌 Bell tower of St. Mary Cathedral
📌Remains of the ancient Roman bridge that crossed the Velino river.
📌 The medieval walls, walk me to the beach train station as I say see u soon to this town
🚂 Rieti (train station), few minutes walking distance from the city center

The Peak of WuZhizhou
There are many things one can do on this island, and we would definitely recommend going to the highest peak. By doing this one can see the whole island and even Hailong bay in the distance, and of course take some great pictures.
🚌 We would not however recommend to walk up. There are mini shuttle buses that take tourists up to the peak every couple of minutes so make sure to find one. Most of them can be found at the port.
🎒 What else can I say, bring a hat because it tends to get pretty windy up there and bring a good camera. There are some food and tea places on the way so also make sure to bring a backpack for souvenirs
All in all, good trip. Would recommend it to a friend, especially if that friend likes hiking or sight seeing 😁
Amazing Outlet Center - Yalong Wan
It’s very easy to stay in Yalong bay and chill the the resorts all day. But! If you venture out inland you will find a bunch of activities that are definitely worth your time. From adventure sports hiking, cultural attractions, and even shopping.
Yalong Wan Outlet Center is a great place to stroll around, get some local food and also do some shopping. Big name luxury brands such as Prada, Gucci, and Coach set up shop in this area, but you will also find Converse, Adidas, and Gant. A good mixture of brands.
The area is nice to walk around as they have attractions, and areas suitable for kids. We would definitely recommend renting out a scooter or a car to explore the area if you are staying at one of the seaside resorts.
All in all, a great 2 hour activity to do during your stay in Yalong Bay that isn’t lounging on the beach all day 😄

Cafe in the Mountain.
This woo cafe is in the purple mountain area near to linggu scenic area. It's situated besides a lake they have a sitting area near the lake. It will be good to relax when the climate is good 🌤. You can see beautiful black swans in the lake.
After visiting the mountains when you want to sit and relax you can come to this cafe ☕️. The latte I tried was tasty and the snacks were good and crispy 🍟. You can either come here by cycling but it's little difficult since it is uphill or you can take the City sightseeing bus and exit at linggu scenic area. From there you have to walk about 500 meters to this cafe.
The Populus Cafe
The populus is also a very popular cafe in Singapore. ☕️It's so popular that it might have dining limitation at peak time. The store's not large so make a reservation in advance.
It's a very typical cafe, with brunch, main dishes, coffee and other drinks. Their signature is the populous scramble. 🥚 I ordered one but their croissant in this dish is out of stock, so they replace it with toasts, which are not bad as well, so crispy. The scramble is absolutely perfect. Soft and tasty. And there'a also some bacon in this dish.🥓
I also ordered their chocolate for drink. 🍫Their chocolate choices of 50%, 70%. I chose 70%. Always a fan of darker chocolate. The price is a little expensive but reasonable. Around $30 per pax.💰

Chye Seng Huat Hardware
📍150 Tyrwhitt Rd, Singapore 207563
Chye Seng Huat Hardware is a very popular cafe in Singapore. ☕️ It looks just like a normal hardware store from the outside. 🔧 The decoration inside is also very industrial, which is novel and very suitable for taking pictures. It has both indoor and outdoor seating.
In addition to its distinctive decoration, its coffee is also very rich and varied. In addition to ordinary coffee, there are also filtered coffee, daily brew, and their special cold brew. ☕️ Besides, they also have different kinds of main dishes, snacks and pastry. The choice is plenty, you can have afternoon tea or have a meal here. I ordered a cup of filter coffee and a pandan pancake, both of which were very good.
However, in order to maintain the industrial style, the stools in the store are a little uncomfortable to sit on. 🪑And the food here will be a little bit expensive.💰
Beautiful waterfalls 🏞
Anshun is a place where you can completely enjoy the beauty of nature and it's most famous for waterfalls 🏞. If we go here during the time of rainy season, it's almost like taking a shower 🚿 when go near to the waterfalls. Also it's best to carry extra pair of clothes or raincoat if you didn't want to get wet or to enjoy to the fullest.
There are lots of shops at the entrance which sells show covers , raincoat and umbrellas ☔️.
This is the waterfall inside Dragon palace cave. Which is 16km away from the Anshun city. You can easily reach here by bus 🚌. You can take bus from Anshun east bus station which costs around 12 RMB
Lovers Cove - WuZhiZhou Island
One of the places to definitely go visit on WuZhiZhou would have to be Lovers cove. Located a couple of minutes by shuttle bus or a 20 minute walk this is a great place to take pictures in the rose garden or have a small picnic with your loved ones on the beach.
There were plenty of signs and statues to take photos with and everything was very nicely maintained. The rose gardens and the flower garden was a great place to stop and take in the smells and also snap a couple of artistic pictures.
Don’t miss out on the flower tunnel. Hanging flowers form a beautiful looking tunnel which is very popular with tourists as a picture spot.
All in all, come here with your significant other and enjoy this part of the island which is dedicated to lovers and to all the romantics out there 😄
Lavish Island Lagoon - WeiZizhou
Who would have thought that this island has so much. From a lagoon to a bird and horse sanctuary, this place is amazing.
⛵️We thought it might take a long time to get to the island but it only takes 20 minutes by boat from the town of HouHai.
The lagoon area was amazing. We saw ducks, turkeys, peacocks, geese, and even ostriches. We would definitely recommend the lagoon as it is so quaint and pretty.
The lagoon is very close to one of the resorts on the island, which means it is very well maintained. We would recommend going in the morning as there are not too many tourists there, by noon it might get a little crowded, and definitely check out the south side of the lagoon as this is where people take the best pictures.
All in all it was a great experience if you are a nature and animal lover. Would recommend to a friend 😄
LAZEEZ Restaurant, Nanjing
If you are a great fan of Mediterranean food or wanna try it from a best restaurant I highly recommend this place 🥘🥙🍲. This restaurant is like a complete package with good food 🍲🥩, good ambiance 🌃 with a beautiful city view, good music 🎼🎹 played throughout and the best service 🥇.
They have given care to each detailings and the restaurant is decorated very beautifull and elegant 🌟. Nice place to come with your families and friends. They also have special sweets 🍧🍡🥟 and it's a must try.
168 Taiping South road, Qinhuai district, Nanjing.
Perfect Hangout Place
This is one of the best hangouts place in Nanjing. Even though it is little faraway from the downtown it's always a worth the visit 🌟🌃. Morning this place will be very calm and less crowded so is the best time to come with kids. For kids they have lots of payed playing area including sandpit 👫🐚.
The biggest ferry wheel is also a major attraction which rotates super slow mainly to enjoy the view of city.
This place also have lots of restaurants so a best place for the foodies and explorers.
This attraction is Baijahu 1912 can easily reach by metro.

A place you likely haven’t visited in Suzhou!
In my opinion this is the most lovely park I’ve been in Suzhou. and that’s saying a lot cause I’ve been to so many parks during my stay in Suzhou.
this is a place called Jiangbin park a is located far south of the Dushu lake in Suzhou. first time I visited this place was completely accidental , cause I had not read anything about this place and even till now there is a very minimal amount of content about this place but I still feel it’s fantastic. cause it’s like you have the whole park to yourself. this place is a gorgeous spot for drone photography and it’s a cool temple located at the center of the park. we can’t go in the temple so droning is well worth it.

Elephant trunk hill
The shape of the Elephant trunk hill resembles to an elephant drinking water so it got this name 🐘. This attraction is of amazing natural views and cultural landscape 🏞 which fascinates and attracts the tourists to this place.
The ticket price for entering this attraction is 55 RMB 💴 and I personally feel it is little expensive. This area can cover by 2 to 3 hours ⏰. And from the top you can get a beautiful view of the city.
The other attractions to see inside are Water moon cave, Elephant eye cave, puxian pagoda, Yufeng temple, sanhua wine cellar and Dagoba.

When I got little time to kill in Yangshou, I thought of going to Romance park 🧚♂️. It is not as lively as the Hangzhou one that I have been one year back 🚄. But the romance performance inside the park is visual feast to your eyes. Even though the whole program is in Chinese those who doesn't know Chinese can also enjoy the program to the fullest by the visuals. Every time there will be something that makes audience gets a wow feeling. Lots of performers come behind the audience makes the program more interactive.

Huangluo Village is worth a visit if you are traveling to Longji rice terrace 🏘. This small village is on the way to the rice terrace field 🏞and you can see lots of tourists cars 🚙 parked near to this village.
This village is located at the bank of Jinjiang river. The women here are with long black hair and most of them have hair as long as height of them. When we enter the village all of them either tied or covered there hair. They have a special show for that we have to pay extra. In that show they show there hair and tell the secrets of there long hair.

Spectacular Li river.
Li river is one of the most famous and important attraction in Guangxi province. Which connects Guilin and Yangshou 🏞. Both the side of the river is beautifully surrounded by the green mountains. The best way to explore this river is by the Cruise 🛳 or by the small rafting boats ⛵️ which feels more adventurous.
Mostly Cruise are little expensive which provides food 🍲🍜🌯 with the package. Mostly people prefer to take Cruise to travel from Guilin to Yangshou in Luxury and it takes around 4 hours of journey. The view from the upper deck of the Cruise is breathtakingly beautiful.
Panoramic Rice Terrace View.
From Yangshou you have to travel around 1 and half hours by car to reach this picturesque Longji rice terrace 🚕. The cheapest way to travel here is by the tourist bus 🚌 but it takes almost more than 2 hours.
On the way to the terrace you can explore a beautiful village 🏘. The best way to go to the top of the terrace is by Cable car 🚠 which costs 60 RMB one way and 100 RMB two ways.
But I prefer to walk down the hill while coming back because you can enjoy the more beautiful closest view and also walking down is not so difficult.

Mexican Restaurant, Nanjing
Getting here is very easy. Take metro Line 1 to Baijiahu station and exit 1 🚇. Walk 🚶 few meters straight and take first right. You can see Baijiahu 1912 block and the restaurant is near to the entrance.
Most of the main dishes prices are around 70 RMB 💴 and above but it worth the quantity. All items I ordered was of good quantity compared to most of other restaurants. The other good thing is its a great options for Vegetarians 🥒🥦🥕. For most of the items they have thre different fillings Beef, Chicken and vegetables.
