Sightseeing

tarvel guru branding

Favourite time of year to visit Japan

"Visiting Japan in late March/early April means you may get lucky enough to see the beautiful pink cherry blossoms. Sakura season is my favourite."

A 'MUST' whilst you're there?

"There are so many stunning temples, shrines and castles to view across Japan. Each is just as beautiful as the last, definitely see as many as you can as they’re all so unique."

@b_adventures1's Top Tips

"Make sure to explore the streets of Japan at night as they come alive with neon signs."

What are your ‘must-eat’ meals?

"Ramen!! You need to have at least one bowl a day whilst in Japan. Nowhere else in the world makes ramen like it. Then fill up on sushi, tonkatsu, gyozas and okonomiyaki."

@_lisamward_'s Top Tips

"The best time to arrive at this top tourist attraction in the city is just before sunrise. Avoid the bustling crowds that will emerge later in the day for a more peaceful experience."

What do you love most about Inari Shrine?

"It's something completely unique and awe-inspiring. Walking through the colourful shrines with the rising sun breaking through the trees was the perfect way to start my day!"

Must pack items for Inari Shrine

"Comfortable walking shoes! There are many, many stairs to scale to the top of the trail so flip flops won't cut it."

Benefits of a tour guide for Inari Shrine

"There's an abundance of history to this attraction, as well as a couple of paths less trodden on by tourists, so a guide is brilliant for shedding light on these for a more enriching visit."

Favourite time of year to visit Inari Shrine

"Late autumn - Kyoto is very busy, but late autumn is slightly more manageable, and it makes for a more comfortable walk up all the thousands of stairs."

What do you love most about Taipei?

"The island really has something for everyone whether it's the world-famous street food, stunning landscapes or monumental architecture - but for me, it was the incredibly welcoming locals."

A 'MUST' whilst you're there?

"As amazing as the capital city is, the network of affordable transit - from bullet trains to tiny busses - puts mountains, beaches and more cities just a few hours away."

@jamesonaplane's Top Tips

"Jiufen - probably Taiwan's most touristed town - is an easy and amazing day trip to make, but staying on to watch the sunset and explore the town in the quiet of the morning is well worth it."

Religion and Spiritual

@Trvljunky's Top Tips

"Do not rush through Sensō-ji. Spend a morning or afternoon to really take in the scene and mood of the temple."

Aside from being a place of worship, what cultural aspects make this special?

"Kimono culture is on full display at Sensō-ji. This applies to females and males. You can rent a kimono to enjoy the experience as well."

@Trvljunky's Top Tips

"Respect that this is a Buddhist temple. Do not intrude on private worship and pay attention to 'no photo' zones."

A 'MUST' whilst you're there?

"Join in the fun and get a Mikuji - fortunes you can purchase for 100 Yen."

What do you love most about Sensō-ji?

"While a place of worship, the energy and street scene is to be enjoyed. The road to the temple is lined with small shops to buy local gifts."

What do you love most about Hong Kong?

"It's super diverse and has everything from skyscrapers and mountains to beaches and villages. It really is a mix of modern and traditional, and natural and urban!"

What makes Hong Kong a good travel destination?

"Most places can be reached by public transportation easily. On top of that, Hong Kong is very safe, even during nighttime."

@verawinter's Top Tips

"Make sure to leave the basic tourist areas - there are so many amazing places around the city that visitors don't usually get to see. For example, Sai Kung is a true hidden gem."

What is something special to do?

"If you can, go hiking! The trails are well kept and the views are gorgeous. There are many options to choose from based on the duration, difficulty, and location."

Must pack items for Hong Kong

"Hong Kong dollars in cash. Taxis, markets and some restaurants only accept cash, even though the city is very modern."

Why is Huashan the most deadliest hike in the world?

"With heart-stopping dangerous plank paths and incredibly narrow stairs to climb, this hike attracts adventurers from all over the world. It stands tall at 7000ft, and is perfect for thrill seekers!"

@worldandher's Top Tips

"1. Get up early 2. Map your route 3. Hike or get a cable car 4. Drink plenty of water 5. Prepare for limited English"

How much time do I need here?

"It takes 6-8 hours to hike here, or you could cable car it. You need around 30 mins on the plank there and back. The park closes at 7 pm with no option but to walk back if you miss the last bus."

Was 'The Plank' safe?

"Yes and no. You have a 180-degree drop to climb to reach 'The Plank'. The plank is narrow and you're basically relying on two ropes. However, if you go when there are fewer people (end of the day) it's fine."
