Gloria,
Hello! I am so glad to see that you have popped back around. I need to pop on more myself!

I would love to catch up and hear about your latest travels!

Hola Gloria

Posted: 2008-11-03 11:31 PM   
Gloria, when I travelled around that area, I took a boat through the Yangtze River and stopped in Nanjing and two days later I followed to Shanghai, then I made one day visit to Hangzhou. The well known Chinese proverb affirms:
“Shang you tian tang, xia you su hang”
(up there is Heaven, down here is Hangzhou)
Then I traveled to Souzhou, the Chinese Venice, and further north until Beijing.
But I made that journey over 20 years ago!
I can only recommend you to go to all those lovely places and discover the wonders by yourself. I never carry any tourist guide; just discover by myself the places. Now it is easier with Internet.
Happy journey!

Ciao, ciao, bambina.

I am glad that you are again on the top of the ranking page.
Yes, the phrase is in Japanese. You can ask your friend Mike (tokyomike) for the meaning.
Ciao.
Jorge

Singapore

Gloria,

Please do not assume that just because I was in Singapore for business (the first time) I did not manage to experience it. I was there for a week, had plenty of time in the evening and three days completely free as one of the days was a public holiday. I have not written the report to promote your country.

Anyway, I understand you are protective of your country and I appreciate that. I like Singapore although I have seen much more exciting places in the world.

Regards
Krys

Unfair Singaporean?

Gloria,

I am extremely unhappy with your reaction to my report on Singapore. I am not entirely sure how to respond to your comment without offending you.

First of all, you did not read the report carefuly, and yet chose to pass a quick judgement! I feel you wanted me to lie about the place despite my disappointment. I will never do that! I pass on my experiences as they were without hiding anything. If you had read the report properly you would have noticed that I in fact enjoyed the fact that the city was clean, safe and organised!!

I have seen a lot in the City, much more than any other business traveller to Singapore that I know. I took time to explore the city on foot by walking from Little India to Chinatown to Boat Quay and beyond. Even Simgaporeans were impressed with that!

Why didn't you just demand that I deleted the report?! Surely this would satisfy you?

Regards
Krys

No worries

No worries about the Singapore slip. I figured that's what happened -- but coincidentally, I also was in Singapore a couple of years ago and loved it! I also did the Singapore Sling thing, but opted for the river cruise, Sentosa Island trip and Night Safari thing over the crab dinners. I'm thinking of stopping over there in the spring on my way to Jakarta and then Bali. I love being here in Asia!

Hokkaido

Singapore was great. I'm all about hot tropical locations! And that's why when asked about the best seasons for travel in Japan, I always lean toward the warmer weather!

For Tokyo, spring can be extremely wet and unpredictable, and next thing you know you're into rainy season and the unbearably hot summer (which is why I fly the coop for a month every August). No, for Tokyo, THE season is actually right about now. From about mid October to November, it's just a bit chilly, but still warm enough in the day for shorts and a T-shirt with a windbreaker. You get lots of sun. And the greens are starting to turn red. And with the lower humidity, you get the blue skies and nice warm red sunsets.

Hokkaido, being a whole lot colder than here, would be better about a month earlier. So if I were you and wanted to do both, I'd hit Hokkaido first, maybe in mid to late September, then move down to Tokyo.

Hokkaido

Hi Gloria! Thanks for writing. As it turns out, I was just up in Sapporo in July. GREAT place! I'd highly recommend Hokkaido. Be sure to try the "soup curry" up there. Anyway, yes, by all means, if you have any questions, Shoot!!

Mike
