Osaka is the most beautiful city in Japan. I like it better than Tokyo. It is modern meets the history.
Play: there are several historical sites to see in Osaka. Go there early in the morning since most of them close early in the afternoon. See them slowly, and sit down to watch the Sakurai if you can. In the night, there are places to go for family time as well as personal time. Go to the night market if you wanna see the real local Japan. There are Karaoke in Japan, they offer young ladies and guys to entertain you, but please be careful with that.
Living: Living cost in Osaka is average, but living space is really crowded. Hotel room is generally smaller than 15 square meters. Hotels in Japan is not enjoyable place, just go back there when you need sleep.
Transportation: Take train and bus. In downtown, walking is the best option. Taxis are expensive and required pre-order. taxi driver are most friendly people in the world, but most them can only speak Japanese.
Eating: If you experience real Japan, Eat in some local places. Order shushi and sashimi. Don't order then if you are afraid of raw food. Please know that Japanese food serve in a light size, order 2 dishes if necessary.
Shopping: European and American brands are really expensive in Japan. Go to local night market to find all the interesting special item you like for a low price.


Paris, Paris

I will start sharing my travel experience here. Let us start my favorite city----Paris. Paris is the most beautiful city in the world. Every corner is a beauty. But beauty has a price, Paris is the most expensive city in the world. Traveling in Paris could be the best or the worst experience in your life.
Please Make sure what you are planning to do BEFORE you go there, cause there are millions things you can do Paris, and you can't do them all.
Play: There are museum, famous sites you can see in the day, and plenty bars and clubs you can go in the night. Please remember, don;t be drunk on the street, it is illegal and you could be arrested.
Eat: You can go cheap or fancy in Paris. You can finish your meal with 8 dollars, and can go up to 300 dollars per meal. Try to order anything you don't know. ALWAYS order wine with meal, and that will bring the food a whole new taste.
Live: Living could be expensive in Paris. Please don not leave the city too far to save money, it is dangerous and unnecessary. Spend 200 dollar in some average could make the trip much more enjoyable. If you wanna go fancy, Ritz and is always the best choice.
Transport: Public transportation is super convenient in Paris. Take the metro or bus when you wanna go somewhere far, and walk if you can manage it. Don;t waste all the beautiful street view. Taxis are way too expensive, and most taxi drivers are arrogant and unhelpful.
Shopping: You can find everything you need. Go somewhere unique and fun, and find your style. One thing to be noticed. Bring drink into a store is considered extremely rude in France. Don't do that.
Thing you must do in Paris: Buy something completely unnecessary and fashionable, eat in some places that is absolutely French but not right on the street, eat the ice-cream that sells on the street.
Don't do in Paris: Don't shout/yell on the street. Be aware that there are plenty fake Gucci bag out there.
