What comes to your mind when you think of Korean food? Kimchi, maybe? Or Bibimbap?

What definitely didn’t come to my mind, before visiting Korea, was choco pie. Jeonju, a Korean city famous for its stunning Hanok Village, is also well-known for its handmade choco pies.

If you’re still confused about it, don’t worry. Daniel and I spent hours investigating choco pies during our recent trip to Korea. In this article, we have all the information you need, including where to find the best choco pies in Jeonju and how to make them yourself.

Xian, China’s former capital in the west, is often considered the end of the Silk Road. It is one of the most interesting Chinese cities we travelled to, with its mix of Chinese and Muslim traditions, old buildings sprinkled throughout the city centre and the famous Terracotta Warriors nearby.

It is easy to spend two or three days here, maybe even more, without running out of things to do. But even if you only have one day, Xian can be a wonderful destination. We have put together an itinerary to help you see the best sights in the area.

And maybe you’ll even get inspired to come back one day.

If you’ve always wanted to see a panda, then you have to visit Chengdu.

But the Sichuan capital has much more to offer than these cute, cuddly animals. Daniel and I had a fantastic time here, visiting temples, indulging at the night market and dressing up at the Chinese Opera.

You could easily spend a few days here, but if you’re short on time, follow our one-day itinerary to make sure you see the best Chengdu attractions.

The first time I saw a picture of the Christmas market in the Ravenna Gorge, I knew I wanted to go there.

This German Christmas market spreads out in a gorge underneath a railway viaduct, and it’s the cutest and most romantic Christmas market we have ever visited. It’s easy to reach, the food is fantastic, and you can buy great souvenirs.

We had an amazing time during our visit, and can honestly say it is one of the most extraordinary Christmas markets in all of Germany.

That’s why we want to share our experience with you. If you’re considering visiting this unique market yourself, keep reading, and you will get all the information you need.

Every year, when the days get shorter, I get excited for Christmas. The Christmas Market in Frankfurt is one of the highlights of this season, and I can’t wait to get out and have a cup of hot Glühwein.

Usually, the month of December means meet-ups with friends and co-workers at the Christmas Market. Plus, we like to go by ourselves a few times, just to enjoy the lights and look at the various handicrafts.

Even though we’ve lived in Frankfurt for a few years already, we discover new things every time we go. One winter, for example, I found out that you can get amazing grilled salmon at the market. We have also discovered some of the smaller Christmas markets in Frankfurt, which are all worth visiting.

If you come to Germany in December, you should consider adding Frankfurt to your itinerary. After all, you don’t want to miss one of Germany’s biggest Christmas Markets, do you?

In this post, you’re going to get all the practical information you need for visiting the Christmas Market Frankfurt.

Also, make sure to check out our post with general advice you should know about visiting German Christmas markets.

At first glance, Gamcheon Culture Village almost looks like a suburb in Latin America.

Colourful houses clustered along a house, with a maze of alleyways and staircases leading from house to house, are a common sight in cities like Rio de Janeiro and Medellin. But in South Korea?

Welcome to Gamcheon Culture Village, a district in Busan that has become truly unique. We are still amazed by how different this neighbourhood is compared to anything else we’ve seen in South Korea.

If you’re thinking about visiting (which you absolutely should), then check out our guide, which includes everything you need to know – from how to get here to the best things to do in Gamcheon.

A few hundred years ago, Dunhuang was an important outpost on the Silk Road.

These days, most people haven’t even heard of this city. But those who have, and who take their time to travel this far west in China, are rewarded with Buddha caves and sand dunes.

Plus, it’s a great opportunity to escape the crowds that you’ll encounter in famous cities like Shanghai and Beijing. It’s not as remote as cities like Kashgar or Turpan, but it still gives you the opportunity to explore some of China’s hidden gems.

We loved our visit to Dunhuang and believe the city has enough to offer that you can easily occupy yourself for two or three days. But see for yourself:

Liechtenstein might be small, but it packs a punch. You can easily spend a few days in this tiny alpine nation without seeing everything.

We’ve already written a post about whether Liechtenstein is worth visiting, so now, we want to help you plan your trip. While the country has a lot to offer, we are aware that not everyone has the time or money to stay there for multiple days.

In that case, your best option is a day trip to Liechtenstein from Zurich.

There are no direct trains from Zurich to Liechtenstein, but the trains bring you right up to the border, and you can easily continue by bus from there. Altogether, it only takes around 90-120 minutes, which leaves you with plenty of time to explore the mountains.

Keep reading to figure out everything you need to know for your Liechtenstein day trip from Zurich!

Kyrgyzstan is a country not to be missed. If you even remotely enjoy stunning sceneries and a unique culture, you will want to spend some time exploring the country’s highlights.
