  As it says on my Trip Advisor map, Hong Kong is one of my favourite cities. There are a number of reasons for that, the first of which is the shopping. In Kowloon, there are markets and districts that are specific to the sale of certain items. For example, the Gold Fish Market is a street specifically for the sale of anything to do with aquariums. This street was very interesting as it sol...Read More

Guangzhou is a place that I have always wanted to visit. It is the place where huge deals are made for the sale of manufactured goods “Made in China”.

My seven hour walk took me to Big Wild Goose Pagoda Park ...Read More

Today I was taken to a place where hardly any westerners have heard of, let alone visited. I am a guest of some friends who are the founders of Mount Knowledge, a publicly traded educational software and learning company. Their office in China is in Shijiazhung, the capital of Hebei province. It was by chance that I arrived here when I did, as some of the officials at a large school were taking th...Read More

Shanghai Surprise

Tags: andrew pateras,blogs,travel,photography

  I do a fair bit of research before I reach any destination, and in researching Shanghai, I thought it was going to be just another big city. To my surprise, it was one of the most beautiful and culturally rich cities I have ever seen!  I rely heavily on the reviews and advice provided by Trip Advisor to find the ideal hotel in a perfect location. Because of this, I am usually in a pri...Read More
