Why is “Less is More” in Travel Planning?

Why Do Chinese Believe in Feng Shui?

Why Do Chinese Believe in Feng Shui?

  “Why do Chinese believe in Feng Shui?” you may asked. Truth is, not all Chinese believe in Feng Shui just like how not everyone believe in luck or karma. Some people will still not break mirrors or walk under the ladders even though they don’t believe in karma simply because they’re just trying to stay on the safe side. And since Feng Shui has been surviving for thousands of years, Chinese people are still applying the principles just in case. It is actually more to like superstition. As the new era approaches, more and more Westerners and non-Chinese people start to believe in Feng Shui. Because Feng Shui is not a religion, it is still considered a smart choice to apply the principles to one’s life. What Is Feng Shui Actually? It dates back to thousands of years when Feng Shui was first introduced and practiced in China. As the years passed by, the Westerners begin to adopt the principles and re-created some of them to suit the Western’s styles....

The Reason Why Independent Backpackers Should Go On A Cruise

The Reason Why Independent Backpackers Should Go On A Cruise

We can easily hear the screams of independent backpackers whenever they’re being told they should go on a cruise. “Cruises are not the real travel experience and you won’t get the chance to experience the local culture.” This is probably just one of the many reasons why independent backpackers tend to skip cruises on their travel bucket lists. For these solo travelers, they considered cruises as “fake travel ideas” for those people who just want to pretend that they are traveling to various places without the need of moving around too much. In all honesty, at some point, we do agree with this though. However, we do have reasons why independent backpackers should go on a cruise : An Adult Playground On The Sea Yes, cruises are not travel experience because you don’t get the chance to explore new cultures or even dine at the the same place as the locals do.
