Jet Ski in Dameisha Beach, Shenzhen

China is not well known for beautiful beaches...or is it? Shenzhen, a major city in the Pearl River Delta, has a decent collection of good quality beaches. Among these, Dameisha is one of the largest, is free of charge to enter and also the nearest from the city center! In addition to sand and sea, it also offers water sports activities like jet ski, snorkeling and parasailing, albeit in a very...theme park style...as I should explain later.

Jinjiang Action Park: the RCT3 theme park!

Jinjiang Action Park 锦江乐园 is a AAAA attraction located in Shanghai, China. It features a world class roller coaster, a huge observation wheel and several other attractions. But for me, this theme park has the distinction of being very similar to a theme park designed in Roller Coaster Tycoon 3, from the rides and ticketing system to the stalls and decorations.

Happy Valley Shanghai: Best roller coaster collection in China!

Happy Valley Shanghai has an impressive lineup of roller coasters. Although  7 does not sound too impressive, at least 3 of the roller coasters are the best in the industry. Of course, Happy Valley Shanghai also has some decent family and flat rides,but I think most visitors are drawn to the roller coasters.

Shanghai Disneyland on a nearly SOLD OUT day!

Shanghai Disneyland is Disney's newest theme park, located in the most populous country in the world - China. As such, expect the theme park to be crowded on most days. However, what happens at Shanghai Disneyland on the first week of China's school holidays? I had the "privilege" of experiencing it for myself.

Pingshan Heritage Trail & Tsing Shan Monastery Review

Pingshan Heritage Trail and Tsing Shan Monastery are two iconic heritage attractions in Tuen Mun, Hong Kong. They showcase the culture and architecture of traditional Hong Kong and also allows guests to better understand Buddhist and Taoist religion. I visited these 2 places as part of the history and culture course I studied in Hong Kong Polytechnic University.
