Truthfully by faith. Shwedagon Pagoda (also known as the Great Dagon Pagoda and the Golden Pagoda) is located in Yangon, Burma. It's a sacred place where faithful Burmese go.
I had a chance to visit this holy place and I traveled there in high spirits. Burma is still the real Buddhist country. Everyone realized this because Shwedagon Pagoda has always been packed with Buddhists from both Burma and many countries around the world. From sunrise ’til sunset; they come here with heart and spirits that is full of belief and faith in this golden place.
Every evening, different generations of Burmese gather to help clean the surrounding area. This is a very impressive tradition.
Beauty, greatness, and faithfulness are the motivations why Buddhists across the world keep coming to visit Shwedagon Pagoda at least once in their lifetime.
Les Bleus may have been booted out of the World Cup by Germany, but for me France is always a winner. The number of places to go around Paris, especially, can never be exhausted: the Eiffel Tower, Sacré Cœur, the Seine, the Arc de Triomphe, and this time, I fell in love with the Cimetière du Père-Lachaise.

It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.

In this article, I'll show you the usual route I take whenever I walk through the streets of Sham Shui Po, Hong Kong, this time in preparation for making a puppet called Mr. Golden.
