Changing money – different countries, different experiences…

We usually don’t change money a lot. We prefer to use ATM’s which is safer, especially in countries where there’s false money around (like China).Sometimes though, we have some leftover currency that we have to change. In Seoul, we wanted to change some leftover yen. We went to a shopping centre where there was an […]

Why Hong Kong is not China

First and most important reason why Hong Kong is not China: You have to pass immigration. You officialy leave China (that’s why we needed a double-entry visa) and get a Hong Kong stamp.

After hanging around at Mc Donalds for half of the afternoon, we boarded our night train in the early evening in Shenzhen, a Chinese city close to Hong Kong. We shared our compartment with a Chinese man who fell asleep very early, so we didn’t make much noise, did a bit of reading and then […]
