Beijing- one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations.

Beijing is an ancient capital with a lot of history. It is one of those cities that most tourists enjoy and one of the must-see places in the world. A visit to Beijing will give you a gentle introduction to the culture but it is in essence a very private city.  To discover what lies beyond, you will have to wander of the beaten track. There are exquisite antique markets, beautiful parks and residential areas. Enjoy the humming of birds and forget for a moment that you are in one of the busiest cities in the world.

I have been fortunate to have done quite a bit of travelling over the last 10 years. By heart I am an adventurer and I love exploring new places, cultures and food. Travelling can become stressful and expensive. Over the years I have learnt to travel as cost effective as possible, simply by travelling more clever. is a Adventure and Budget Travel site where I review Airlines, Accommodation, Transport, Restaurants and give helpful travel information.
