Fukuoka Travel Tips: 6 Things to Know Before You Go to Fukuoka
Things YOU need to know before you travel to Fukuoka Japan. Fukuoka is nearly equidistant to Tokyo, Shanghai and Seoul, it sits on the northern tip of Kyushu, the southernmost of Japan’s four main islands. Fukuoka has a laid-back atmosphere, the friendly people, the relaxed pace of a city large enough, with about 1.4 million people, to have its own attractions but not so large as to be overwhelming. Compared with navigating Tokyo’s busy subway system or hurrying to visit one last shrine in Kyoto before closing time, taking in the sights in Fukuoka actually feels like a vacation
Today's Fukuoka is the product of the fusion of two cities in the year 1889, when the port city of Hakata and the former castle town of Fukuoka were united into one city called Fukuoka. Hakata remains the name of one of Fukuoka's central districts and of the main railway station.
5 - Getting to Fukuoka
Plane - Airport is really close to the city -- 5 minutes on the Subway from the domestic terminal. But 15 minutes by Bus from the International Terminal.
Shinkansen -- 2.5 hours from Osaka
3- Transportation in Fukuoka
Fukuoka sells unlimited day passes for tourists, making sightseeing easier and affordable. The subway is easy to use, with two main station transfer hubs (for JR trains) and a route to the Fukuoka International Airport. You can buy a single fare (600 yen) or get an unlimited day pass. The station master booth near the turnstile can answer any questions you have.
Fukuoka Tourist Day Passes grants access to each/all the public transportation: 800 yen (adults) affords a pass on Nishitetsu Bus, Showa Bus, JR Train and the Subway, while 1,300 yen gets you an extra usage of the Nishitetsu Train (* takes you out to the Dazaifu Temple Area). I chose the 800 yen pass and was very pleased. Show your passes at events and attractions and you may get a special discount.
4 - Food:
For ramen, most people say Fukuoka is the best,” he said. Two of Japan’s most famous ramen chains, Ichiran and Ippudo, hail from the city. Ramen Stadium on the 5th floor of Canal City. But the one can’t-miss dining experience in Fukuoka is yatai. Yatai are tiny street food carts that are constructed (and deconstructed) nightly. Plastic curtains typically enclose a bare-bones kitchen and minuscule counter around which no more than a dozen or so diners can cram. Many yatai serve basic fare like grilled things-on-sticks or ramen; some supplement counter seating with folding tables and chairs.
Today, there are about 150 operating yatai in Fukuoka, with most clustered along main roads, parks and the riverfront. Because of a law that bans the opening of new yatai, those numbers are dwindling
5 - Shopping:
Canal City is a major shopping complex at 2.5 million square feet, including about 250 shops, restaurants, cafes, cinemas, game center, theater, etc. It even has a canal flowing inside (which explains its name), and a large fountain that has a water show every 30 minutes.
Because the mall is so large, it may take you a whole day to discover everything. If you come to Canal City before May 18th, you can also enjoy the 3D projection mapping show with the popular anime “One Piece” theme, which is quite epic you won’t want to miss it.
By the train station lots of shopping too!!
Dazaifu Tenmangu and Kushida Shrine.
Dazaifu Tenmangu is located in Dazaifu city, and it is one of the main shrines in Japan dedicated to Tenjin- the “God” of literature and scholarship. The shrine is very large and includes several structures, so it would take you around 1 hour to visit all the places.
On the contrary, Kushida shrine is located right in the center of Hakata, and since it is a village shrine, it is much smaller than Dazaifu, and this spot will only take you 20 minutes to visit. As the oldest shrine in Fukuoka city, it attracts lots of foreign tourists so you can get the information sheet and even the omikuji (paper fortunes) in English.

Rovinj, Croatia: Istria's Old World Oasis
More info about travel to Croatia: Like the rest of the Croatian coast, Rovinj was part of the Venetian Empire for centuries. And Istria remained part of Italy until after WWII. That's why this region is enthusiastically bi-lingual and an engaging mix of Croatia and Italy.

Ecuador is one of the most diverse countries in the world though it's comparably tiny. Beside the Galapagos Islands (which is the #1 tourist destination in Ecuador) the country has a lot more to offer, therefore I focussed on La Sierra in this video which is a paradise for landscape lovers and outdoor adventurers.
Another reason to visit the Andean region is that you have the chance to dive into the local culture and get a real feeling of Ecuador. The places to see in Ecuador I focussed on in this short video are the result of my own travels along the center from north to south and are easily doable in 2 weeks time.
Things to do in Ecuador covered in this video:
01) 00:36 - Otavalo market in Otavalo
02) 01:00 - Hike the Cuicocha lake
03) 01:25 - Middle of the World, Mitad del Mundo & Quitsato in Cayambe
04) 01:48 - Quito, capital & UNESCO World Heritage
05) 02:08 - Termas de Papallacta (hot springs)
06) 02:24 - Cayambe Coca National Park
07) 02:45 - Quilotoa & Shalala viewpoint

►Watch the full videos in this playlist:
►SUBSCRIBE for 2 new videos per week:
Petchaburi Soi 5 (เพชรบุรี ซอย 5) has long been one of my go-to street food streets in Bangkok. Starting in the evening at around 4 pm, the entire road starts to fill with street food carts selling all sorts of Thai dishes. You’ll find everything from rice and curry to soup noodles, snacks, and fresh fruits and vegetables. It had been a few years since I had explore Petchaburi Soi 5 (เพชรบุรี ซอย 5), so in this Thai street food tour I’m taking you with me to some of my old favorites, and some new spots. Enjoy!
Yam mama (ยำมาม่า) - 50 THB ($1.52) - This is the first dish I tried. MAMA are Thai instant noodles and this is a completely different way to eat them - in mixed salad form.
Khanom krok (ขนมครก) - 30 THB ($0.92) - Coconut griddle cakes are one of my favorites, they are crunchy on the outside and gooey in the center. Don’t miss this Thai street food snack.
Cha yen (ชาเย็น) - 25 THB ($0.76) per cup - Thai tea
Pad thai (ผัดไทย), Hoy tod (หอยทอด) - This was formerly a street food cart that now has their own permanent shophouse location. They make pretty decent Pad Thai and they hoy tod, which in this case in a mussels omelet, is pretty good as well.
Total price - 125 THB ($3.81)
Nam prik pla too (น้ำพริกปลาทู) - For something a little healthier, I’m a huge fan of nam pirk pla too, a pounded chili mackerel sauce that’s eaten with vegetables.
Total price - 70 THB ($2.14) for everything
Chao guay (เฉาก๋วย) - 25 THB ($0.76) - For dessert, I had grass jelly with ice. The owner was so friendly and happy.
Haircut - 100 THB ($3.05)
Pad kra prao moo krob kai dao (ผัดกระเพราหมูกรอบไข่ดาว) - Final meal of this Bangkok street food tour, I headed across the street to Petchaburi Soi 10 to seek out one of my old time favorites. The stall was still there, and they make a pretty good plate of Thai crispy pork belly fried with basil.
Price - 40 THB ($1.22)
Thank you for joining me on this Thai street food tour of Petchaburi Soi 5 (เพชรบุรี ซอย 5). It’s the type of street you can walk through and just choose whatever you like to eat.

13 Stunningly Beautiful Places In America
From Castle Rock in Grove County to Watkins Glen State Park here are 13 Stunningly Beautiful Places In America you need to go visit!
Subscribe to Talltanic
6 - Turnip Rock on Lake Huron
Lake Huron is one of America's five great lakes, it comprises the easterly portion of Lake Michigan. But the real beauty lives inside the lake, near Port Austin, it is called Turnip Rock. Eroded by watery waves over the course of thousands and thousands of years is this freestanding rock. The popular outdoor destination is well known by locals for its scenic views and crystal clear waters. You can only reach this coveted land mass by boat, once there, climbing the rocky ledges reveal a stunning forest, nearly untouched by time or filthy human hands. The geological formation is a lesser known American Beauty, but still one of the best, especially for those who thrive in the outdoors.
5 - Castle Rock in Grove County
Aeons ago, as the stories say, an ancient sea covered nearly all of the Midwest, inside this lush grove, found in Kansas, a maddening array of chalk deposits span nearly 11 miles, and are said to be breathtakingly beautiful. There are limestone pillars which tower over the nearby badlands of the Smoky Hills region, but the big sensation here, is Castle Rock, a landmark on the Butterfield Overland Despatch route, known by many as the Overland Trail. Castle Rock's name hails from its resemblance to a castle rising above the prairie. This place of natural divinity is one of the 8 wonders of Kansas.
4 - Yosemite Valley
From the lush grooves which dwell inside the mountainous world of Northern California comes this monumentally gorgeous National Park. Enter through the Tunnel View, take either of the hiking trail loops which stay within the valley and lead to the trailheads, which force visitors to travel upwards, for some truly scenic wonders. Yosemite Falls is the highest waterfall in all of North America. The valley is around 8 miles long and nearly a full mile deep, some of the best summits are rumoured to be the Half Dome, Cathedral Rocks, Three Brothers and El Capitan. There are over ten wondrous waterfalls, endless mountain rocks, gorges and canyons, as well as so many pine trees, it will make your head spin!
3 - Horseshoe Bend
This next place of intensive American beauty can be found in the bend of the Colorado River from the Arizona side, pretty darn close to that illustrious world of rock called the Grand Canyon. This formation of land is, as you may have guessed, in the shape of a horseshoe, the bend is located approximately 5 miles downstream from the Glen Canyon Dam and Lake Powell. The hike for access is roughly one and a half miles, and from what the stories say, is well worth the effort. The magnificent overlook is from 4,200 feet above sea level and allows for a view of nearly the entire span of the massive national state park. The steep cliffs which rise above Horseshoe bend come in a dazzling array of colors, thanks to all those lovely minerals.
2 - Watkins Glen State Park
This devastatingly beautiful glimpse into the splendour of Mother Nature can be found in Schuyler County New York, inside the Finger Lakes region. The centrepiece of this luxurious park of all things nature, is a 400-foot gorge, cut through the mountainous rocks by Glen Creek, which formed from melting glaciers. Rapids and waterfalls grow wild here. The rocks are mostly soft shales, with several layers of color-changing sandstone and limestone. There are three gorgeous trails to enter the cavern of the gorge, Indian Trails takes you through the forest, Gorge Trail follows closest to the stream and runs over the park's 19 waterfalls by way of stone bridges and over 800 stone steps. Finally, there is the Finger Lakes trail, an 800-mile system of outdoor bliss.
1 - Zion
This National Park can be found in Utah, it spans nearly 230 square miles and is filled with astounding formations of canyons, as well as lush forests and stunning wildlife. There are approximately 290 species of birds, 75 mammals, including 20 distinct species of bats, and 32 unique breeds of reptiles, as well as oodles and oodles of plants. The park is so immense, it's best to navigate through the four life zones, there's the desert portion, the riparian world, the woodland spaces and the coniferous forest. There are mountains to climb, canyons to explore, buttes to rest on, rivers to ride and natural arches to take your breath away. Truly a sight to behold and an entire world of outdoor beauty to explore. Zion is a definite must see!
