Weekend travel is a perfect way to get a little taste or teaser of a new city. A few days away from the routine & schedule of life to explore somewhere new. Buuut keep in mind also that a few days is never enough time to fully explore and experience a new city, so you have to learn how to make the most of three days and try to avoid the hiccups that can be a damper your weekend plans!
There are 48 countries in the continent of Asia. That’s a lot of places to attempt to visit and some are more difficult to get to than others. So instead of creating a personalized bucket list for every single place in Asia, I’ve decided to let reality bring me back to Earth and make a some-what-reasonable bucket list that I could potentially accomplish!
The Great Wall of China; 长城 (cháng chéng), 万里长城 (wàn lǐ cháng chéng) literally translates to “The Long Wall of 10,000 miles” and it is one of the longest walls in the world. Over ten million people visit the Great Wall of China every year and the amount of information around how to properly explore this giant architectural landmark is overwhelming. If you are anything like me, I did a TON of research prior to witnessing the Great Wall of China. I didn’t want to miss anything!
If you are planning a trip to Asia, be aware that you are going to experience a culture shock.

Here’s my guide for preparing for your trip to China, for packing and understand what is to come (bring your own tp).
