A few weeks back I travelled to Taipei and spent some days exploring the city as well as venturing to Jiufen, located just a few hours away from Taipei.

The city is full of old, derelict looking buildings that gives Taipei it’s distinctive feel and atmosphere. We came to a quiet neighbourhood to check out a dumpling restaurant […]

Located on a quiet street, you will find a quaint and probably the most instagrammable restaurant in Busan. It’s not hard to see why, with its white tile facade and scattered plant pots, Moru Restaurant (모루 식당) will make you feel instantly transported to a back street in Tokyo.
