China might not be as popular with Filipino tourists as Korea and Japan are right now, but this nearby country’s also worth a visit. Beijing’s an obvious destination for its cultural treasures, but Shanghai and Guangzhou’s historic buildings and design scene are giving travelers more reasons to visit the Middle Kingdom. If you’re planning a trip to these two cities soon, here’s what you shouldn't leave out of your itinerary:


50 Moganshan Road

When in Shanghai, you shouldn’t miss out on wandering the whole stretch of 50 Moganshan Road, also known as M50. Take in all the art as you shoot your OOTDs against the coolest murals and free galleries in the area.

Don't leave the city without visiting this kitschy alley! It’s famous for its charming Shanghai-style boutiques and craft shops that offer unique finds, from designer clothes to budget-friendly gifts, home decor, art, and books.

1933 Slaughterhouse

Thrillseekers shouldn’t miss the chance to visit 1933 Slaughterhouse, one of the largest in the world. It’s a must-see for its Gothic-Deco architecture, air bridges, and hauntingly beautiful interiors.

Discover the many faces of this Asian metropolis by hopping on a vintage bicycle or a sidecar, followed by a fun food trip!
