Travel Guide: Chongqing

Chongqing has such a large population. In some cases, more people live in it than entire countries' populations. I visited this gigantic metropolis twice during a handful of trips to China. I didn't do much the first time around because I was just passing through. On the second visit, I made a couple of day trips to see more of the region.


I made a guide on what to do, how much you might spend and how to get in and out of Chongqing, based on my experiences.

Travel Guide: Beijing

Beijing is the capital of China in many ways such as economic, political, cultural and historical. This makes it a premier tourist destination. Some would even go as far as saying that if you've been to China but never visited Beijing, you've never been to the country at all (IMO this is debatable as I've been to other regions). The city is most likely the first stop of many that visit.

Travel Guide: Pingyao, China

Pingyao has an old town that is centuries old; I decided to visit it and do some time traveling. The walled city was a mix of old and new. Fortunately, it was low season during my visit as I saw parts of the town that barely had any people in it.
