Puripant Ruchikachorn, lived in Tokyo生活在东京





Tokyo: I LOVE JAPANESE FOOD SO MUCH. Try its omakase, go to Tsukiji market etc. Tokyo Disney Sea is also amazing. The metro system is very efficient but can get a little too complicated because it’s a vast network. I had difficulty navigating coz the command of English of the Japanese is really not as good as the other cities, but the excellent service and constant courtesy make up for that. There’s also a great deal of funky culture, from anime to maid cafe to Harajuku style. Tokyo is an amazing destination for food, culture and attractions!
Seoul: Korea is really known for its cosmetic brands. You will find affordable and good cosmetic shops everywhere. I also love Korean food, from kbbq to ginseng chicken soup. Myeongdong is an amazing paradise for everything! Also there’s historically significant places to visit such as the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) and the Korean War museums. There are hidden cute cafes. If you are into k-pop and k-drama, you can learn from me and plan a list of cafes opened by k-pop stars or scenes that have appeared in k dramas :)

东京:我非常喜欢日本菜。尝试它的omakase料理,还可以去筑地市场等。东京迪士尼海洋也很神奇。地铁系统非常高效,但由于网络庞大,因此可能会有些复杂。我很难确定位置,因为日本人的英语水平确实不如其他城市,但优良的服务和一贯的礼貌弥补了这一点。这里还有很多时髦的文化,从动漫到女仆咖啡馆再到原宿风格。东京是美食、文化和景点合一的绝佳目的地!
首尔:韩国以其化妆品品牌而闻名。你会发现到处都是价廉物美的化妆品商店。我也喜欢韩国菜,从韩国烧烤到人参鸡汤。明洞对任何事物来说都是一个神奇的天堂!还有一些历史意义重大的地方可以参观,比如非军事区和韩国战争博物馆。这里有隐藏的可爱的咖啡馆。如果你喜欢韩国流行音乐和韩剧,你可以向我学习,把韩国流行音乐明星开的咖啡馆或者韩剧中出现过的场景列个清单。

Taipei: I really love Taipei for its emphasis on books and culture. Out of all these cities, Taipei is the one city that still retains a strong reading culture. It has a famous bookstore chain called ChengPin which is popular amongst people. It also has a strong street food culture and be sure to visit its night market!
HongKong: HK is known for its dimsum and yumcha. The DisneyLand was too small and boring. The people there are not as courteous as those from the other cities and you don’t get treated as well as the natives if you don’t speak Cantonese. The islands around HK such as Llama Island are charming though.
Bangkok: BKK has so much cheap stuff from food to clothes! It has an eclectic mix of high fashion and affordable apparel. It also has great street food but take note of hygiene. Two of my friends came down with stomach flu from it. It has an emerging cafe culture and there are cafes that are really quaint and cute! I haven’t been to BKK for a long time so what I comment is mostly from what I have heard from friends.

台北:我真的很喜欢台北对书籍和文化的重视。在所有这些城市中,台北是唯一一个仍然保留着浓厚阅读文化的城市。它有一个著名的连锁书店叫诚品,很受人们的欢迎。它还有浓厚的街头美食文化,一定要去逛夜市!
香港:香港以点心和玉米茶而闻名。迪斯尼乐园太小而且无聊。那里的人不像其他城市的人那么有礼貌,如果你不会说广东话,就不会得到同本地人一样相同的对待。香港周围的岛屿如Llama岛,却很迷人。
曼谷:从食物到衣服,曼谷都很便宜!它兼有高级时装和实惠的服装。它也有很棒的街头食品,但要注意卫生。我的两个朋友因此得了急性肠胃炎。它有一个新兴的咖啡馆文化,那里的咖啡馆真的非常可爱!我很长时间没去曼谷了,所以我的评论主要是从朋友那里听到的。
