Even in the middle of winter, the Imperial Palace Gardens are well worth a stroll. There are plants from all the prefectures of Japan, and the bamboo is lush year-round. The palace is about a 10-minute walk from Tokyo Station, and it's a...
1 Chome-3-２８ Yokoami, Sumida-ku, Tōkyō-to 130-0015, Japan

This is one of the awesome pandas that lives at Ocean Park. Although this picture was taken live and in person, HK has a TV channel completely devoted to watching the pandas. You can also watch from your phone. And at night, when the pandas are...
Cha Kwo Ling, Hong Kong
As one of the only full-time music venues in a city of 7 million people, Hidden Agenda carries the flag in true rock 'n' roll fashion. Its continuous skirting of Hong Kong's infamous zoning laws has kept its name on people's lips and the threat of...

He’s young. He sits on the side of the street under a single bulb, sweating in the unrelenting heat. Like artists all over the world, he hopes he can sell just one more sketch and continue fueling his dream. We found Chanon Saengchompoo while...
6 Chome-11-1 Roppongi, Minato-ku, Tōkyō-to 106-6108, Japan

China, Shanghai Shi, Putuo Qu, Wuning Rd, 我格广场 邮政编码: 200085
There are many acrobatic shows to choose from in Shanghai. One, Eros, boasts, "If you miss this, you miss Shanghai!" but it looked very high-tech, more like a Cirque du Soleil, and I wanted to see a traditional show. Well, this was it. It's most...

Carrer del Vidre, 8, 08002 Barcelona, Spain
Barcelona is home to countless tapas joints. They sit on street corners and back alleys all over the city. Many are commercialized and target tourists, while others are homegrown, centuries-old locations. There are plenty to choose from. After...
Pla de la Seu, s/n, 08002 Barcelona, Spain
These geese have guarded Barcelona's Cathedral for hundreds of years. They make lots of noise if anyone comes anywhere near them. I'm sure they always did a very good job of alerting the Cathedral about intruders. They are unusual looking geese....
