The Pointless Global MBA: Take 2

2

A wise man once said, “International travel will teach you more about business, politics, and law than all the degrees combined.”

The second half of my MBA sent me to Asia where I quickly developed an obsession with my favorite city in the world, Shanghai, and laid the groundwork for my future travels to the region.

To quote a famous book, here’s where I went on this Trip Report:

I took advantage of my time abroad by exploring mainland China and Asia as a whole. I visited the Great Wall in Beijing, ate spicy food in Chengdu, saw the Terracotta Warriors in Xi’an, was unimpressed in Nanjing, crossed the border in Shenzhen, toured the famous West Lake in Hangzhou, and even learned Kung Fu in Wudan.

I gambled in Macao, visited the richest man in the world in Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei, had a Singapore Sling in Singapore, lounged on the beautiful beaches of Langkawi, Malaysia, partied in Hong Kong for Halloween, swam in the azure waters of Boracay, Philippines for Thanksgiving, went tubing down the river in Vang Vieng, Laos for Christmas, and ignored a terrorist threat in Bali, Indonesia for New Year’s.

Did I mention I went to the Full Moon Party again?

Informally put, I went here: 

And did this:
