Tips when you are visiting in Tokyo

unduhan-31Accommodation

  • Shop around online months ahead for hotels, as rates can fluctuate dramatically. The best deals tend to be on the east side of town, in neighbourhoods such as Ueno and Asakusa. Avoid the peak domestic travel times of New Year, Golden Week (late April to early May), and Obon (mid-August), or book well in advance if you can’t.
  • While business hotels tend to lack character – rooms are compact and functional – in some cases they can be a better deal than private rooms at hostels, especially if you’re travelling as a couple. There are several good budget business hotels that offer double or twin rooms from around ¥8000 (US$80). One of the best value is the Toyoko Inn chain.
  • Tokyo hostels are known for being clean and well-managed, catering for younger and older travellers. Most have a mixture of dorms and private rooms and can be a good option for families on a budget. Expect to pay about ¥2800 (US$28) for a dorm and ¥7500 (US$75) for a private room (double occupancy).
  • Capsule hotels offer rooms the size of a single bed, with just enough headroom for you to sit up. Most are men-only (such as Capsule & Sauna Century), though some have floors for women, too. Prices range from ¥3500 (US$35) to ¥5000 (US$50), which usually includes access to a large shared bath and sauna.
  • All-night manga kissa (cafes for reading comic books) double as ultra-discount lodgings, some with private cubicles, showers, blanket rental and vending machines for food. A ‘night pack’ (for nine to 12 hours) starts at around ¥1500 (US$15). Gran Cyber Cafe Bagus (bagus-99.com/internet_cafe), with branches in Shinjuku and Shibuya, is one of the nicer chains. You probably wouldn’t want to spend many nights like this, but one or two would free up some yen.
  • You can have an overnight stay at a love hotel, known in Japanese asrabu hoteru, from ¥6500 (US$65); you can’t stay consecutive nights, though. Some love hotels have over-the-top interiors (and amenities that range from costumes to video-game consoles). There are dozens of options on Dōgenzaka in Shibuya.
  • Many spas and saunas – Spa LaQua and Ōedo Onsen Monogatariincluded – have ‘relaxation rooms’ with mats on the floor or reclining chairs where you can overnight for an extra fee (about ¥1500 to ¥2000).
  • Check out the full range of budget Tokyo accommodation options.

 

Food & drink

  • Get good-value meals at shokudō, inexpensive, all-around eateries, usually found at train stations and tourists sites. A fillingteishoku (set-course meal) usually includes a main dish of meat or fish, rice, miso soup and salad, for around ¥1000 (US$10).
  • You can fill your belly with a steaming bowl of noodles at tachigui, stand-and-eat noodle bars in and around train stations, for as little as ¥350 (US$3.50) per bowl. If you prefer to sit while you eat, you can get a bowl of ramen for under ¥1000 at one of Tokyo’s many noodle joints, such as Nagi in Shinjuku.
  • Try kaiten-zushi (conveyor-belt sushi), for a casual sushi lunch or dinner. Individual plates are priced from ¥100 to ¥500.
  • Fortify yourself with a drink and some small bites such as yakitori(grilled chicken skewers) at street stalls and izakaya, the Japanese equivalent of a pub.
  • Look out for lunch specials. Restaurants that charge several thousand yen per person for dinner often serve lunch for just ¥1000.
  • In the evenings, grocery stores, bakeries and depachika (department-store basement food halls) slash prices on bentō (boxed meals), baked goods and sushi. Two depachika to try are Isetan in Shinjuku andMitsukoshi in Nihombashi.
  • Convenience stores (major chains include Lawson, 7-Eleven and Family Mart) stock sandwiches, onigiri (rice balls), hot dishes and drinks, which you can assemble into a very affordable (if not exactly healthy) meal.

Tokyo city guide

  • Food trucks gather around the Tokyo International Forum at lunchtime on weekdays, with a range of goodies for under ¥1000. They also make an appearance at the weekend farmers’ market in Aoyama. And listen out for Tokyo’s original food trucks: theyaki-imo (roasted whole sweet potato) carts that rove the city from October to March crooning ‘yaki-imohhhhh…!’.
  • Beer can be bought from a vending machine at half the price of one at a bar.

Out & about

  • If you plan on visiting a few museums, the Grutt Pass (rekibun.or.jp/grutto) is excellent value. The pass costs ¥2000 and allows discounted admission at 79 attractions across the city.
  • Shop tax-free at a number of stores; these are noted with a ‘tax-free’ sticker in English on the window. You need spend a minimum of ¥5000 in the store and show your passport to collect the tax refund at the time of purchase (items must remain unopened until you leave the country). See the Japan Tax-Free Shop guide (tax-freeshop.jnto.go.jp) for more.

Filipino on travelling tips

images-16A fusion of Spanish, Chinese, Malaysian and indigenous cooking styles, the food of this 7000-island archipelago really is like nothing else on earth. Here are 11 classic food-and-drink experiences worth having – at least once.

Adobo

Whether it’s chicken, beef, pork, seafood or vegetables, if it’s cookedadobo you’d be hard-pressed to find a Filipino that doesn’t love it. Adobosees meat and vegetables marinated in garlic, vinegar and soy sauce before being cooked in oil and then simmered in the remaining marinade. Served with mountains of white rice, it’s a hallmark Filipino dish. You’ll find it on every local restaurant menu, and in food courts and market stalls throughout the country. Sentro 1771 in Manila offers a flavoursome garlicky beef and pork version.

Lechon

The Philippines is home to possibly one of the tastiest pig dishes in the world: a whole pig stuffed with herbs and vegetables (each region has its own secret filling), which is hand-turned on a spit over smoking coals until the skin shatters like glass and the meat drips with flavour. A favourite for Filipino celebrations, lechon can be purchased at takeout counters throughout the islands or at local markets (try Manila’s Saturday Salcedo Community Markets). No need to buy the whole pig – you can usually order a few hundred grams. Many Filipinos say the bestlechon comes from Cebu, an hour’s flight from Manila. Don’t be surprised to see wrapped pigs being collected at the airport baggage carousels; restaurants fly lechon around the country to ensure customers get to feast on their favourite pork dish.

Pansit

Possibly the most popular food for Filipinos (after firm favourite white rice; tip: ‘unli rice’ stands for ‘unlimited rice’) is rice noodles! Stir-fried with a mixture of meats and vegetables, and lashings of soy and oyster sauce, this dish is a staple at any Filipino celebration and is eaten for breakfast, lunch or dinner.  The noodles do come in varying thicknesses but pansit bihon (thin ones) are the best.

Sisig

Served on a sizzling hot plate, this pork dish is traditionally made by boiling a pig’s head, then grilling or barbecuing it to add a smoky flavour, chopping the meat into tiny pieces, and finally frying with onion, garlic and spices. Sisig was made famous in Pampanga Province by late restaurateur Lucia Cunanan, who has been credited with creating the modern Filipino version. If you’re in the area, stop by restaurant Aling Lucing (facebook.com/lucingcunanan) for a taste of the original. Sisig is available around the country; many restaurants serve variations using chicken, tuna, squid or even tofu instead of pork, or add items such as raw egg or mayonnaise. Whichever way you order it, get ready for a sizzling feast.

Sinigang

Sinigang is a sour-tasting soup made of a tamarind, tomato, garlic and onion broth. Native vegetables including okra, eggplant and green finger chilli are boiled up and meats (usually pork on the bone) are then added. Sinigang is the epitome of Filipino comfort food; most Pinoys can’t get enough of its signature sour taste. The dish is usually served with a side of patis (fish sauce) and chilli, and of course some white rice.

Traveling Tips in South Korean

images-17In the spirit of New York’s High Line elevated garden promenade, Seoulwill launch its Skygarden in 2017. It is the latest in a series of bold architectural and urban planning projects that have marked out this vibrant metropolis of 10 million people as the place to watch when it comes to a crafting a design-conscious, people-centric city for the 21st century.

Sixty five years ago, when Seoul lay in rubble following the Korean War, such a transformation was beyond most people’s wildest dreams. The priority then was to rebuild – fast. The results were far from pretty, but served their purpose. Seoul was the boiler room of South Korea’seconomic miracle, a non-stop city, crisscrossed by subways and elevated highways, its workers housed mainly in utilitarian, unlovely apartment blocks. Hosting the summer Olympics of 1988 and the FIFA World Cup of 2002 provided the impetus for some more imaginative city planning but mainly resulted in Seoul gaining new sports stadia and a couple of much needed parks.

Waterside parks

The pivotal moment came in 2003 when Lee Myung-bak, then mayor of Seoul and later to become the country’s president, green-lighted a multi-million won plan to demolish a 5.6km stretch of elevated highway not far south of the imperial palace Gyeongbokgung.

Beneath the concrete at the highway’s base ran the course of theCheong-gye-cheon a creek buried in the late 1960s when rampant development and pollution had made it an eyesore. Two years later, the highway was gone, replaced by a pristine stream flowing beside sinuous promenades and under reconstructed historic stone bridges.

Striking pieces of public artwork, including the giant pink and blue swirl Spring by Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen, were also part of the design. The public loved it and the project was hailed a success for returning a strip of nature to the city centre, as well as naturally cooling the area and dramatically decreasing vehicle traffic.

In 2010, under the theme of ‘Design for All’, Seoul took on the mantle of World Design Capital. The same year it was appointed a Unesco City of Design. Across the city, hundreds of imaginative projects were softening Seoul’s concrete and steel edges.

The highways that thundered along both sides of the Han River couldn’t be so easily swept away, but the parks beneath them were upgraded. An old water filtration plant on Seonyudo, was transformed, Cinderella-like, into an award-winning garden oasis. The futuristic-looking recreation complex Some Sevit crowned artificial islands floating beside the Banpo Bridge, itself transformed at night by a fountain illuminated in rainbow colours arching forth from its girders into the river.

Ambitious design projects

Two key projects initiated in that period were so ambitious that it would take several more years for them to be completed. Finished in 2014, the inimitable design signature of the late Dame Zaha Hadid is immediately apparent at Dongdaemun Design Plaza & Park. Billed as the world’s largest atypical building, and looking more like a giant spaceship than a convention, exhibition and shopping centre, the curvaceous structure is coated with 45,000 aluminium panels, and glows from pulsating LED lights.

  

Around it Hadid crafted a remarkable, undulating landscape that incorporates fragments of the area’s history, including remains of Seoul’s 15th-century city walls and the 1925 sports stadium that once occupied the spot. It’s one of Seoul’s most fascinating structures.

Also making a bold architectural statement is the new Seoul City Hall opened in 2013. The design is based on the eaves of a traditional Korean house, which provide shade. But if you didn’t know that, you might think the glass structure more resembles a giant wave, frozen as it is about to crash down on the former 1926-vintage City Hall (now a library).

Inside, the eco-friendly building’s lobby boasts a vertical garden that rises up seven floors and is hung with over 70,000 plants in 14 different species. Over the lobby also dangles Jeon Su-cheon’s Meta Epic: SeoBeol – a giant cluster of hundreds of translucent spheres symbolising Seoul’s dynamism.

Soaring towers and skygardens

From all across the city, it’s hard to miss the tapering fins of Lotte World Tower, the sixth-tallest building in the world, cutting 555m high into the sky. The 122nd floor of this sleek tower, designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates, will be the best place to take in Seoul’s full architectural sweep when the upper floors are completed, likely by the end of 2016. You can already visit the mammoth shopping mall, a 2000-seat concert hall, multiplex cinema and aquarium featuring South Korea’s longest freshwater tunnel and first underwater escalator tunnel.

Evaluate the Community and Also the Home As You Purchase

There’s much more to locating your perfect house rather than determining the number of bed rooms or bathrooms you require. The home you choose is very important but the neighbourhood where you choose to reside could have just as much of an impact on your total well being. As you sort through victorian houses for sale, make sure you take notice to where properties are located. If you have youngsters, you might wish to take up residence in a property near recreational areas or another family centers. Nevertheless, in the event you have not started your family up to this point, a community in close proximity to urban center is much more suitable for you. An agency can help you analyze properties according to the place to make sure you are pleased in your new local community. Some of the issues you may want to consider tend to be crime rates, traffic behaviour and distance to grocery shopping. In fact, you wouldn’t want to remain in your home at all times. Check out this article for you to learn more about seeking the suitable home for the loved ones. For the very best advice and tips pertaining to investing in a house, talk to an experienced estate agency who will guide you in the direction of communities in which you could be relaxed and take pleasure in raising your household.
