Quotes from our contributing authors

"These people live a tough life. Some live on boats, with no choice but to use the water for cooking and bathing. They eke out an existence selling food or handcrafts and rarely set foot on land. They work so hard and have so little, yet they’re the most generous, hospitable people I’ve ever come across. The western world could learn a lot from such people."

- Justine Southwick


"The sleepy village... was a rare find. A gateway to a unique and amazing travel experience that hadn't been contaminated by the commercialism of tourism. A travel experience that was still pure."

- Jason Godfrey


"I am here for the dragon dance, the Chinese acrobats and musicians, Chinese sweets, and the gigantic animal lanterns which seem to have been released from some enchanted zoo: to my left a giraffe, behind me an elephant, before me a Koala, and a fleet of glowing dragons hovering above!"

- Daniel Krieger


"The Koreans rightly saw modern industrialization as the way out of their predicament. They set to work with a vengeance. By any measure they have succeeded. No longer a 'Hermit Kingdom,' modern day Korea is a wonder of skyscrapers and sophistication."

- John Regan
