Panda Panda: Chengdu Panda Visitor Guide

Years ago I came to Chengdu but missed seeing the pandas because I fell victim to the Chinese dice game the night before.

World’s Greatest Skyline: The Best Views of Shanghai

Where can you find the best views of Shanghai? With buildings that are too tall, the answer is everywhere. Here are my favorites:

New Orleans Cemetery: Why You Have to Pay Admission

The first time I went to New Orleans was to see Michigan win a bowl game, a rarity. Overwhelmed with Bourbon and bourbon (one being the street, the other being the poison), I didn't make it to the St. Louis No. 1 cemetery.

Why You Should Go to Bruny Island Tasmania

Congrats on renting a car. It's time to go to Bruny Island. The drive to the port is quick. The queue at the port is anything but.

Museum of New and Old Art (MONA) Tasmania: What the £µ¢&!

TPOL isn't a frequenter of museums. It's not something I go out of my way to do. I made an exception for the MONA because it is exceptionally weird.

Croc hunting continued in Kakakdu on the Yellow River cruise. For 90AUD per person, tourists are taken on a two hour cruise with an indigenous guide. Unlike the croc jumping tour which is more of a novelty activity, this was an authentic experience.

Croc Jumping Darwin: Keep Your Hands Inside at All Times

I came to Darwin to see crocs. Stop one was a croc jumping tour on the Adelaide River. For the fair price of $45AUD ($32), croc lovers are taken by boat to one of the habitats of the saltwater crocodile.

Bondi to Bronte: How to Spend A Day in Sydney

Bondi Bronte is part of the TPOL Down Under Trip Report. With one day in Sydney and because this was the second time I've been here, the only place I wanted to be was the beach*. Getting...
