Those of you who have followed my blog and social media for a while know that I’m usually a very avid traveler. But, this year my travelling slowed down since I’ve been busy with establishing my new life in Hong Kong. I won’t be on the road again until September, so in the mean time, here are some photos that I shot in Guangzhou a few months ago.


I’ve always been keen on visiting China more, since I have a high interest in Chinese history and scenery. Guangzhou is conveniently located two-hours away from Hong Kong by train, so I went up for a quick trip over a long weekend. Guangzhou isn’t the first city that comes to mind when one thinks of China, but it still provided me with snippets of Chinese history and a whole lot of good food. I also loved how wandering around this city made me reminiscent of some of TVB dramas that I used to watch – haha!


The Temple of the Six Banyan trees.


Dim Sum at the Mandarin Oriental.




The beautiful Liwan district.




The bright and busy streets of Shang Xia Jiu at night.
