ESPAÑOL

ITINERARY: THE BEST OF REYKJAVIK IN A HALF OR ONE DAY

  • My score: 2/5.

Kagoshima is a city of just over 600,000 inhabitants, the most important in southern Kyushu by population.

MAKATI: DANGERS, WHAT TO DO, WHERE TO SLEEP, EAT, PARTY AND GO SHOPPING

ESPAÑOL

Makati is certainly not the most attractive place in the country, although it may be the least unpleasant spot in Manila, and since it is very likely that at some point we will have to go through the city, we will have to do something during the hours or days we spend here. Continue reading “MAKATI: DANGERS, WHAT TO DO, WHERE TO SLEEP, EAT, PARTY AND GO SHOPPING”

  • Recommended number of days: 1 or 2.
  • My score: 3/5.

The first destination advertised for tourist by the government itself back in 1949 is, as the name suggests, a city in its entirety, with more than one million inhabitants.

  • We were here: September 26, 2018.
  • Recommended number of days: at least one full day, including overnight stay. Better if they are two.

My Chinese cousin Jiaping told me once, “I love living in Spain, but even better is that the day I want to return to my city, I’ll be returning nothing less than to Shanghai”. At that moment I could imagine what she was referring to, but now that I have seen it with my own eyes, I understand perfectly the reason of her satisfaction face. Continue reading “SHANGHAI”
