Hi there, my name is Dia.
I left Los Angeles in late 2017 and have been traveling ever since. I began making videos to keep myself grounded, and since then it has turned into my dream career! Taking the leap to chase my dream was scary at first, but sharing my stories and adventures with you guys have been an amazing part of it.

I hope to continue making travel vlogs and valuable guides to help and inspire others. Would love to get to know ya! Drop a comment and say hi 🙂

So I made a second video on: 10 things NOT to do in China + Q&A: https://youtu.be/cnRguPpUQIw (some updated info in regards to WeChat Pay, VPN, and more..)

    OK, two years ago, but helpful and interesting! And surely still much valid. 👍
    I was about to go to China earlier this spring, but it was cancelled due to known reasons …
    I hope to be able to go after the summer instead!
    One thing about Google translate from camera – it seems (my experience from Japan) to work better with translating to English than smaller languages as, in my case, Swedish.

  19. Marina P. says

    Useful video. Thank you. Just about the Western restaurants, in France, from what you said about China, we behave the same as them. I was shocked in the USA at first cause of the waiter interrupting our lunch all 5 minutes (it's quite rude in France if you keep doing, the customer call you when needed or do eyes contact) and the 20%+ tip. We don't tip here.
