Travel in Japan – Have you been to Muji?

2021-05-12T07:13:07+00:00

Travel in Japan is popular because Japan has so much to offer. Muji is a Japanese retail company that sells a wide range of consumer goods and household products. Its design philosophy is very minimalist as it emphasizes reducing production & packaging waste as well as recycling. Also, its ‘no-brand’ / no-logo policy is truly unique. The brand name Muji means no-brand high-quality goods. Due to its no-brand strategy, Muji spends very little money on classical marketing or advertisement. Clearly, word of mouth, the simple and satisfying shopping experience and its anti-brand movement have significantly contributed to Muji’s success as a [...]

Why do people go shopping during international trips?

2020-12-16T15:08:41+00:00

For many international travellers, buying a luxury handbag is not something uncommon: perhaps just as common as buying a T-shirt at Target. While the appeal of luxury goods is obvious – the leather is soft; the logo is flashy – the price tag can be off-putting. Unless you have a good job with a high salary, buying luxury consumer goods can create a financial burden. Yet studies have revealed that humans do not always act rationally. Many consumers who buy luxury goods are not in a financial position to be able to afford luxury goods. The proof of this may be [...]

High-context culture VS low-context culture: international travel

2020-10-05T08:36:38+00:00

Having been to many different countries, I’ve realized that there are two categories when it comes to cultures: 1) high-context culture, e.g. most Asian countries and some Eastern European countries; 2) low-context culture, e.g. most western countries. Therefore, I’d like to talk about my observation during my international trips and experiences. International travel observation: In a high-context culture personal relations and goodwill are highly valued, whilst in a low-context culture performance and expertise are highly valued. International travel experts and workplace coaches contend that employees and managers from a high-context culture might focus more on building relationships with each other and [...]

Interesting travel facts and unexpected findings

2020-09-10T22:38:34+00:00

Populations are growing and cities are booming – but could we soon see skyscrapers turned into centers for crop production? From Chicago warehouses to the south pole growth chamber in Antarctica, the concept of growing food indoors is catching on. Plant scientist Dr Erik Murchie, from the University of Nottingham, reveals how agriculture could be turned on its head. What is vertical farming? It's vertical because you are trying to grow more crops on a smaller land area and this usually means going upwards into buildings. It normally means that, instead of having a single layer of crops over a large land [...]

Wisdom from Ukrainian tours: Why travel is a very healthy hobby

2020-02-26T03:47:07+00:00

According to modern psychology and medicine, travel is the healthiest hobby because it’s good for our physical health and mental wellbeing. Many tourists who visited Ukraine have kindly shared their insights and wisdom with us. A Ukrainian tour makes you curious and open-minded. Have you noticed that when you are traveling, you are actually more open-minded? Research shows that tourists are more curious, so they are able to enjoy the benefits of a city (some of them can enjoy things better than local people do). Do you remember when you were five years old, everything was exciting? That’s because you were [...]
