Big Fan of Books and Libraries? Come Visit Boston Public Library While You are Here!

The idea of living is to learn, not only while you were young, but to learn while you still can.

There are many ways for us to learn, some learn by doing, some learn from audio and some learn from books.


 If you love reading and is a fan of big and comfortable libraries, Boston Public Library which was located in Boylston St is definitely worth your visit.

The library is so big, peaceful and quiet. I stayed for more than 3-4 hours here last time.

Boston Public Library also provides desktop computers and internet for Library Card Holders.

There are many sections of reading in this library, so you would certainly found books based on your interest.

The opening hours is from 9 morning to 9 evening. However, I suggest you to ask the officer regarding the day of your visit. You could email or dial 617-536-5400.


One Hour Harvard University Walking Tour and Chilling Out in Harvard Square

Harvard University  
There is no way skipping Harvard in your itineraries if you are in Boston. However, since the university is not small, I think it is wiser to have yourself a guide.

Just in front of the Harvard Square, you would find Harvard tours which usually started at 10.30am, 11.30am, 1pm and so on. The duration is around 1 hour and cost only USD10.



Harvard Square

Harvard Square is just like a market, which is surrounded by cafes, restaurants and shops in this area.


There are starbucks, but if you would like to find yourself somewhere different to chill, then you definitely should try the Crema Cafe.

Yes, Crema Cafe is very famous and also have quite a pretty long line in the morning. They serve great foods and also have a nice atmosphere, enjoy your day in Harvard!

Winter Morning Stroll in Boston Public Garden and Outdoor Ice Skating Rink in Boston Common

Bonjour! I have always liked the idea of being a local in a stranger’s land. Waking up early like most of them, and spend my day like how they used to.

I went to Boston Public Garden early this morning. The Garden is located in downtown, so it is very accessible if you stay in this area, such as Stuart St, Washington St.

This public garden was established in 1837, and is the country’s first botanical garden.
You will see these four status along the way from the garden entrance gate. There are around 80 species of plants and 40 types of exotic trees in this garden. 

However, since it is winter time, you would not be able to see the beauty of the flower blooms.

Meanwhile, there is a lake in the center of the garden, and due to winter time, the lake is half freezed.

A bridge is built in the middle of the lake, allowing visitors to pass by the sides of the garden.

One of the popular attraction of Boston Public Garden is the Make Way For Duckling Statues of Mrs. Mallard.

You could also find an ice skating rink in Boston Common, which is right across the Boston Public Garden, and the rink is known as Boston Frog Pond.

The ice skating rink only opens and available in the winter time because of the cold. In summer, it is open as a pool.

The opening time is Monday 10am-3.45pm, Tuesday until Thursday is 10am-9pm, Friday and Saturday 10am-10pm, and Sunday 10am-9pm.

It is always a great idea to start your day with all the nature and fresh air surrounds you. Hope you enjoy your morning walk!

Downtown Boston and Quincy Market in One Night

Boston city is known for its many scholars, college, universities, and that is why it is very common to meet many young people all around the world.

Boston is a small city, and in this blog I will show you how to get around downtown Boston and the famous Quincy Market if you only had one night.

If you arrived in South station by taking Greyhoubd bus, you will see big Chinatown gate just straight in front of the terminal.

According to census, there is a high population of Asian Americans living in this area of Boston,  and it is one of the most densely populated residential areas in Boston. 

Walk straight toward the Chinatown gate, and you all along the way you will encounter many chinese and vietnamese restaurants and stores in that area.

After the end of the Chinatown, we will be heading toward Washington street. There would be plenty of fashion stores and retails in this area.

The streets are usually filled with people, especially students. However, due to the strong wind and also snow in this week, many preferred to stay at home and which is why somehow the road looks quieter than usual.

During Christmas time, lights are filled everywhere on the corner of the streets.


Not only fashion stores, but cafes and bars are easily spotted. Not only Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts, but there are also many local taverns and pubs.

You will encounter this area, one of the biggest street in Boston, where cars and people were passing through left and right, almost like the Shibuya in Japan.

One of the mosty popular bar near the Quincy Market is the Union Bar (Union Oyster House), it is actually famous for its oyster and lobster.

After around 20 minutes of slow walk, you will reach the Faneuil Hall Marketplace or known as Quincy Market.

The Quincy Market opens 10am until 9pm from Monday to Saturday, and 11am until 6pm on Sunday.

Quincy Market food court sells various kinds of food, such a Asian, Italian and even Mexican cuisines.

 You can have your dinner in the middle of the market. Sometimes there would be live music performance here.

Not only that, there are also stalls that sold accessories, souvenirs and even Harvard Campus apparel.

There is also a big Christmas tree decorated with lightbulbs in the centre of the market.

You would only need around 2-3 hours for the night, and I suggest you to walk around by foot rather than using busses because sometimes there would be traffic as the streets are very small.

Sometimes it is quite difficult to find a parking lot as well, so why not walk around exploring this city?
