People often make the assumption that travelers are either wealthy or don’t have a stable and demanding job. It couldn’t be less true and I am the perfect example of that. I’ve been working and living in China for the past 2,5 years. While I am earning a decent salary that doesn’t make me Cresus and on top of that I only have 15 days of holidays per year. Americans might think it’s a lot while Europeans, especially French people, might go on strike just by the thought of it😜. I grew up in Belgium, the capital of Europe, and trust me I am still on the accustomed phase 😂.
However, there are plenty of ways to adapt and keep exploring while having a full-time job, a normal salary and fewer holiday leave because where there’s a will there’s a way! Here’s how I escaped from the city this weekend using my 5 tips to travel on the cheap side in China.
