Description


The third in the Girls Guide to the World series, Asian Girls are Going Places is a gift book with a difference: it features practical advice (and more) from author Michelle Law and her interviewees that specifically targets the joys, fears and obligations unique to Asian women travelling the world. Separated into chapters that deal with solo travel, family travel, the best places to celebrate Lunar New Year, where to find good Asian food around the globe, romance or relationships, safety and privilege, the sage and entertaining advice is all told through Michelle's signature offbeat, comedic style, and accompanied by eye-popping illustrations and design. It's a book that's at once cool and collected, yet not afraid to take on the weird, funny and, at times, gross aspects of travel. But you don't need to have any concrete travel plans to get a lot out of this book. Each chapter includes anecdotes from Michelle, interviews with other experienced Asian female travelers, handy lists, stunning illustrations by Hong Kong artist Joey Leung Kay-yin, and much more, making it either an impressive gift to be treasured at home or a luxurious 'treat yourself item that can be read on the go.

Asian Girls are Going Places is a handy, laugh-out-loud and deeply relatable travel companion for Asian women that will be at the top of their packing list.
