I previously mentioned the Ferry Building of Pier 1/2 in San Francisco, but I feel it needs more coverage as it’s a destination in itself. I don’t think the name of the building needs explaining, but the contents is all about food.

But I did manage to time the date I visited to a Wednesday, when the farmers market is open from 10AM to 6PM. If you happen to be in San Francisco on a Wednesday, then definitely go and indulge in the organic food.

This is a guest post from Phoebe Magdirila from Maiden Voyage Travel.

Hong Kong’s Kowloon is just one of those parts in Asia that oozes with an interesting culture; so much interesting that you can find so many things to see and do here. With that being said, it’s actually such a disappointing thought that a 2-3 days’ trip usually could not immerse you enough in this tiny island’s mesmerizing culture. But not to be distraught by that fact, if days are not enough, why not make nights in Hong Kong even more worthwhile?
