Last year I took my sister on a siblings-only trip through Asia. We had previously travelled together to New York City, and knowing that we could actually travel well together, this time I was really excited to show her some of my favourite spots in Hong Kong, South Korea, and Japan.
(Sidenote: if you have any siblings, I’d highly recommend taking a trip with them! It’s a much different experience travelling as adults than it is with your entire family.)
After spending our first couple days in Hong Kong (my favourite city in East Asia), we made a brief stop in Fukuoka to visit Micaela, whom you may remember from my last Japan travel series, TOKYO | SEOUL.
Since I’d only even been to Tokyo, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect out of Fukuoka City. Luckily, we had an excellent tour guide in Micaela, who has called Kyushu home for about a decade now. As we found out, Fukuoka offers many of the benefits of the big city but with a wonderful laid back vibe. With canals and spectacular views, it’s a great place to shop, explore, relax, and connect with friends.
