Top Things To See In Tokyo, Japan

Heading to Tokyo? This guide shows you the top things to see in Tokyo.

Tokyo is probably one of the most visited cities in Asia and what fascinates me about Tokyo is that it’s a mixture between the old and new. This applies to food, culture, tradition, architecture, and fashion. It’s also seen as the capital of quirky things that you cannot find anywhere else in the world. I personally love the food and shopping in Tokyo, and I’m equally in love with the orderliness and cleanliness of the city. This is probably why I have been there 4 times already! If you are interested to spend a couple of days in Tokyo, this is a pretty good 2 day Tokyo itinerary. In this post, I am super excited to share with you the top things to see in Tokyo. If this is your first time in Tokyo, make sure to check out my guide on how to plan a trip to Tokyo.

4 Day 3 Night Classic Inca Trail With Alpaca Expedition

Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is an experience of a lifetime. This guide tells you everything you need to know about the 4 day 3 night Inca Trail with Alpaca Expedition to visit Machu Picchu, one of the seven wonders of the world.

When I first found out about Machu Picchu, I was 100% sure I was going to take the train up; hiking never even crossed my mind. Years later, I somehow decided it would be cool to trek the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. Maybe I wanted a challenge or a sense of accomplishment, or maybe it was purely peer pressure because most people I know had done it. Regardless of why I changed my mind, I’m so glad I did the 4 day 3 night classic Inca Trail to Machu Picchu with Alpaca Expedition (not sponsored review). If you were like me, DO IT. If you are moderately fit (and don’t have heart problems), then you should definitely challenge yourself to experience this.
