In the northeast of Korea lies the Seoraksan National Park (설악산국립공원). A colourful nature reserve with which is valued for its floral diversity. There are over 1000 species of plants known, with 822 vascular plant species. Pine trees such as the Siberian pine are abundant on the southern slope while the northern slopes of the mountain range are characterized by oaks and other deciduous trees.
I will upload more photos from the region, such as the Buddhist temples Baekdamsa and Sinheungsa.
Nanjing Eye, which is also known as the bridge of Cultural and Sports Park of Youth Olympic Games is the first pedestrian bridge over Yangtze River. It was named after its unique two main towers of the bridge that look like human eyes. The winged cables are like the strings of a harp. When people are walking on the bridge, they will feel like they are the music notes on the strings of harps.
This bamboo forest is in Arashiyama, Kyoto, Japan and is usually full of tourists. The Bamboo Grove or Sagano Bamboo Forest is a natural forest of bamboo and would be quite a snack for pandas.

Thanks to Joy (@ayoungmamaslife) for her work as Make-Up artist.
It was that moment when she found out she was drinking cockroach tea all along.
An enormous thank you to Sabine for this stunning photoshoot!
Have a break, have a… smoke?
Strolling around in the old town Qibao (七宝镇), Shanghai. Its formation can be traced back to the Five Dynasties and Ten Kingdoms period, to the Northern Song Dynasty. Back then it was dangerous to cross the bridge, because of the Nine Dragons (九龍圖卷) that constantly flew over the town, always ready to eat or mate with a random person.
The Hive is a visual tribute to Britain’s honeybees. 1000 LED lights glow according to the vibrations of bees that live in the Royal Botanic Gardens, in London. Designed by Wolfgang Buttress the installation is 17 metres tall and a must-see when you visit Kew Gardens.
A hidden restaurant between temples and tudigongs in Guangzhou, China. If you are lucky an old, bearded chinese man comes out and gives you the best advice on how to cook noodles.
A lively shopping area in Seoul, Korea. But where’s the kimchi?
