Hong Kong, China

Hong Kong is the furthest place from our home that we’ll reach during this trip. Anywhere we go from here, we’ll be circling the globe and returning to Brazil. Besides, this special region of China is our last destination in Asia. Even though we keep noticing each day that people are very much alike, no […]

Shanghai and historical cities, China

Shanghai was our starting point to get to know some smaller cities in China. We spent 3 days over there, that were enough to see a little bit of the city before moving on to the country side. Shanghai is a very modern megalopolis, known as the Jetsons Family hometown! Hehehe! Well, it’s actually known […]

Beijing, China

China. 5 thousand years of history. One of the biggest countries in the world. The most populous one. Huge economic power. The place that is so different from everything else that, if it doesn’t happen there, it doesn’t happen anywhere. Beijing, the capital of all this craziness. Before going any further, it’s important to highlight […]

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Kuala Lumpur. You’ve heard that name when the guy on the news talks about the stock markets from around the world, and seen many times the image of the (literally) biggest sight of the city: the Petronas Towers. But nothing more than that. The (lack of) international fame of Kuala Lumpur is explainable. Relatively new […]

Penang, Malaysia

An island on Malaysia where most of the population is actually Chinese. Where you can also find a very strong Indian culture. A city that for a long time was the main connection point between the East and the West. Known as the gastronomic capital of Malaysia. So, do you already feel like going to […]

Thailand Islands

Really green ocean, without waves and clear as a diamond. White sand. Great food. Relaxing moments. Who wouldn’t like this combination? Of course one of the most paradisiac places of the world didn’t offer us anything less than that.     The southern islands of Thailand are known worldwide for its beauty and welcoming people. […]

Bangkok, Thailand

“The city of angels, the great city, the residence of the Emerald Buddha, the impregnable city of God Indra, the grand capital of the world endowed with nine precious gems, the happy city, abounding in an enormous Royal Palace that resembles the heavenly abode where reigns the reincarnated god, a city given by Indra and […]

The sad melody of Cambodia

Even though it’s a place full of joy and beauty, Cambodia (as pretty much all undeveloped countries) has its sad side. And, among all their problems, the most noticeable one to the average tourist is probably the accidents that still happen involving landmines. A bloody civil war took over Cambodia from 1970 to 1988. During […]

Angkor Wat and Siem Reap, Cambodia

Our stay in Cambodia was really short, but it was long enough to become unforgettable. There we found happy and welcoming people (which is almost a rule around Southeast Asia), and also one of the most impressive monuments in the world: the complex of Angkor Wat. Angkor Wat is actually the name of one of […]

Chiang Mai, Thailand

You don’t hear much about Northern Thailand here in Brazil. The most known image of the country around here are the amazing beaches of the southern islands and the hectic capital, Bangkok. But many cities of the north are already on the itinerary of many travelers from all around the world, because that’s the perfect […]
