And it’s the first time I’ll be traveling alone! Flights there were cheaper than to Europe! My hotel is so mini and affordable! I AM SO EXCITED AAAAARRRGH

EDIT: I am a pescetarian. I still intend to try at least one pork bun/dumpling, and have vegetarian restauratns on my list, but any help in how to navigate this would be appreciated. (There might be a bit of a don’t ask/don’t tell policy.)

Have you been? Do you have favorite things to do? I have a huge google doc of places I want to go and things I want to eat (look at my one big splurge meal at a place with michilen stars and an art gallery and a garden) but prioritizing is hard, and if there are any highlights or hidden gems or your favorite hole in the wall place, or a great walking tour, hit ya girl up!


I love art (so many art galleries - artsy’s list has been helpful) but there are so many! Which is amazing, but, only there for 8 nights and all that. I love gardens, temples, cool markets (so excited for cheap probably fake jade and cat souvenirs), bars where I can go alone, somewhere to go to a performance of any sort - I’m open!

Definitely gonna take a day trip to see the giant buddha and explore the old fishing village around it and get out of the city for a day.

Oh, and if it matters, I’ll be there in early September.
