88 Stanley Main St, Stanley, Hong Kong
Stanley can get crowded on the weekends, so we opted for a midweek trek to this expat hangout. The vibe was laid back and relaxed and the bay was calm with fishing boats neatly docked. The Boathouse is perfectly situated to take in all the sights...
St. Lawrence's Parish, Macau
People flock to Macau to gamble. There's nothing wrong with that, but it's a shame when time at the roulette wheel takes away from exploring what is otherwise a brilliant little colonial-era treasure. Macau's old cobbled streets are brimming with...
