SUZHOU

ESPAÑOL

  • We were here: September 26, 2018.
  • Recommended number of days: at least one full day, including overnight stay. Better if they are two.
  • My score: I doubt between rating it 3 or 4/5.

BEIJING

ESPAÑOL

  • We were here: 2 days at the end of October 2018, plus another day for the Great Wall.
  • Number of days needed for the city (without the wall): 3.
  • My score: 3/5, but because of the wall 4/5.

The Great Wall of China is one of the most extraordinary constructions that man has made. Continue reading “BEIJING”

SHANGHAI

  • Number of days needed for a visit: at least 2.
  • My score: 4/5.

MELBOURNE

ESPAÑOL

  • I was there 3 days at the end of December 2005 and 3 more in March 2012.
  • Recommended number of days: 2, plus one for the Great Ocean Road.
  • My score: the city 4/5, but because of my friends Kym and Tam I rate it 5/5. If you knew them, you would also do it.

The first time I went to Melbourne I did not intend to spend so many days, but I was exhausted after a month without rest visiting the east coast, the Northern Territories and the desert, so I decided to take it easy, and discovered a so nice city, that the second time I saved time to spare to enjoy it again properly.

MIYAZAKI

ESPAÑOL

  • I was here: April 18, 2013.
  • Number of days recommended: the only recommendable thing is to visit its neighbor Aoshima and continue.
  • My score: 1/5.

As I usually clarify when I low score a city (1/5 means “I do not recommend going”), Miyazaki is not a dangerous or unpleasant city. On the contrary, Continue reading “MIYAZAKI”
