Osaka City Attractions - Things to do in the Kansai Capital

Osaka gets a bad press that you would do well to ignore. With possibly the best public transportation system in the world and some of the country’s most friendly and easygoing people, Osaka is a fantastic place to live or visit for a vacation. It is overwhelmingly safe – even in the supposedly dodgy areas – and incredibly convenient. You can be in Kobe, Kyoto or Nara in less than an hour, without having to worry about traffic or parking, and return to the bright lights of the Kansai capital for a bewildering array of dinner choices.

Noticing Different Ways of Travellers

When I was a kid, I always want to travel. It has always been a dream to be in another place, another country especially. It started when I was in 2nd grade, having this student exchange- foreign foster family abroad program was introduced to us, that was the beginning of my curiosity. I know we didn’t have a lot so I didn’t even asked my parents about it, if they can send me to that. Yet, that is the beginning of my traveling passion.

It was then when I start thinking, “How is it like living in the other countries?” (The program was in UK), “I wonder how is it, if I was born in that country?”, “How different is it from my kind of living now?” and a lot more… Those are just the few that started in my early years of living

Travel Destinations of Pakistan

Pakistan, an ironical hellhole, as painted by the media, is a unique place to visit along with all its idiosyncrasies.

Pakistan encapsulates great variety, from hidden bazaars in the narrow streets of Rawalpindi to Mughal architecture of Lahore that rivals the Taj Mahal of Agra. Pakistan is a microcosm of the whole world where you can find places ranging from highest ever mountains like K-2 to plains and deserts. Pakistan's landscape is as fractured and unsettled as its history.
