ESPAÑOL

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

The following itinerary I consider that covers the most interesting spots in the city and can be visited in half a day, unless we decide to enter the museums, in that case we will need at least full day.

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.

Most visitors think Suzhou is a town with canals and gardens and not a full-blown city with almost 6 million inhabitants. The truth is that it is both, Continue reading “SUZHOU”

XI’AN

ESPAÑOL

  • We were here: 2 days at the beginning of October 2018.
  • Number of days needed: 2. If you are going on a day trip to Mount Hua, then 3. If you are a fan of archeology, you probably need a week.
  • My score: 3/5. No doubt it is a city worthy of a visit, but I am not sure if I would repeat it, and certainly not in the next few years, I explain below why.

Xi’an (西安) is the most important city in the history of China. Continue reading “XI’AN”

SHANGHAI

ESPAÑOL

  • We were here: 3 days at the end of September 2018.
  • Number of days needed for a visit: at least 2.
  • My score: 4/5.

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”

  • Number of days needed: at least 2.
  • My score: 5/5.

I was not thinking of writing about Australia at this time in my life, but for my birthday I usually give myself a post from somewhere that makes me particularly excited, Continue reading “SYDNEY”

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”

KYOTO

ESPAÑOL

  • I was here: 3 days in October plus another in November 2008, and 3 days in May 2013.
  • Recommended number of days: minimum 3, plus at least a day and a half more for the main day trips in case Kyoto is our base.
  • My score: 5/5. Exceptional.

I have not visited all of Asia, but I dare to say that Kyoto is the most beautiful big city on the continent and one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Continue reading “KYOTO”
