Doing business in foreign markets can provide access to a range of opportunities that may allow you to enjoy superior returns. The right business opportunity may provide a gateway to markets that have far more to offer than you might have expected. Knowing more about the unique options that can be found overseas can open the door to many opportunities you would do well to consider.
China and other emerging markets can often provide investors and entrepreneurs with a greater range of options than may be found locally. Limiting your business opportunities to a narrow range of markets and options may leave you missing out on the chance to enjoy superior returns. Knowing where to seek out commercial opportunities of greater value can make a world of difference.
Seasoned investors have long been aware of the benefits and advantages that can be had when dealing with emerging economies. Knowing all you need to regarding the fastest growing markets and the unique investment and business opportunities they may be able to provide could make a critical difference in your efforts. Finding the best investment opportunities may be difficult if you are looking in the wrong place.
Without the help and assistance that a professional investment firm or other service may be able to provide, finding the best opportunities may prove more difficult. Professionals and firms that possess a better understanding of local and regional markets can be a great help. Doing business with professionals better suited to assist you could make a considerable difference.
Basing your decisions and business strategies on detailed information is always a smart move. Entrepreneurs who are seeking new business opportunities would be wise to learn as much as possible. Lacking the insight and awareness needed to make sound investment decisions or to discover options that may be more rewarding could end up costing you a great deal.
Making use of the right resources can make learning about overseas markets and business opportunities much simpler. Online research may be a great way to begin your efforts as it will allow you to outline your options very quickly and effectively. Looking into investment services that may assist you by providing you with more accurate investment information would also be a smart move.
For those who are serious about finding the most rewarding business opportunities and the most exciting investments, dealing with foreign markets and overseas economies can often make a key difference. Opportunities to ensure greater profit or to make investments that will provide greater returns should never be discounted. Investors who possess more information regarding the options that are available can enjoy many advantages.
I usually hate travel lists and particularly repetitive “top 6 things to do etc.” but everyone else writes about it so here’s my bit…
1. Sunset at Casapueblo, URUGUAY:
Sunset at Casapueblo is phenomenal. It was recommended to me while moving around the south coast of Uruguay. I would recommend getting a bus from Punta Del Este (a decent seaside resort to stay in!) out to Punta Ballena and walking the 2 kilometres or so down to the coast itself. There you will find the glorious Casapueblo! An exquisite, self designed, artistic seafront building which is also an art museum. Pay to get inside, walk around and then about an hour or so before sunset, get yourself a balcony seat by the bar. You can order beer and food and watch the sun go down. If you want to watch it for free, you could go to a nearby lookout spot of course, but being at Casapueblo for sunset is just incredible. My pick for sure!!!
2. Sunset at Bruny Island, Tasmania, AUSTRALIA:
3. Sunset at Boscombe in Bournemouth, ENGLAND:
4. Sunset from The Fortress in Danxiashan, Guangdong, CHINA:
5. Sunset on Kenting Beach in TAIWAN:
I love Taiwan. My trip there in 2009 sparked off a new lease of adventure for me and I have fond memories of it, none more so than having a beer on Kenting beach on the south coast as the sun was going down. Myself and my travel buddy went in for a swim in the splendid waters before getting a glimpse of how the hottest sphere we know about disappears for the evening!
6. Sunset at Lam Tin in HONG KONG:
It wasn’t intentional to put Asia on this list three times but Hong Kong has to be on it. With a vast array of skyscrapers, mountains and constant traffic flow, this city allows the freedom to enjoy sunset in a more relaxed way if you’re up for it. Head over to Lam Tin in the east of Kowloon where you can see the sunset to the west and get a spectacular view of Hong Kong Island. Bliss.
So there you have it – 6 odd but spectacular locations you can watch the hottest sphere in existence head away for the night. Don’t you just love sunsets…

So to China again – the world’s most populated country!! Now, when you think of World Heritage Sites in China you must mean The Great Wall, The Forbidden Palace, The Terracotta Warriors, etc…?? No, sorry, not today and not for this travelling Northern Irishman. China was the first Asian country I ever visited and my flirting love affair with it’s land of endless possibilities continues…so here I bring you 3 very unknown and unusual UNESCO World Heritage Sites in China which I have visited recently.
1. Fujian Tulou Buildings in Fujian Province, China – situated is deep countryside with valleys and mountains all around, this is a splendid set of old style buildings known as Tulou. There are hundreds of them and they were built to house full families and Chinese clans back in the day. You can go inside most of them and they are not too busy or touristic, especially for those non-Chinese. This makes your visit seem so special and amazing. A great heritage site! [
Quick Guide – Get to the city of Yongding in Fujian Province. Once you’re there you will realise that there are many bus tours out to these buildings and numerous drivers offering them. If you’re a foreign tourist, they will probably come to you. However be aware of rip offs and drivers cutting special buildings off your trip.
2. Danxiashan Mountains, Guangdong Province, CHINA: Hidden shyly in the north of Guangdong Province, this range of mountains, hills and odd rock formations lets your mind wander into a real unknown part of China, at least for the non-Chinese amongst us. It’s not a guided tour or anything like the buildings in Fujian, this is very much a Do It Yourself style hiking and climbing opportunity. The views at sunset are amazing, as is the tough ascent for sunrise the following morning.
Easy Guide- Head to Shaoguan in China and then get a bus from the main bus station out to the Danxia mountains – you will probably arrive at a resort called Jin Jiang or Yao Tang village. You can stay the night there and use it as your base to do the hiking. Don’t miss penis rock on the hikes!
3. Kaiping Dialou, Guangdong Province, CHINA: It’s amazing that in a country so vast as China, that a scattered array of almost 2,000 impressive tower style buildings almost goes un-noticed! Well it’s easy to get lost in China, luckily these buildings have outlasted their builders and as recently as 2007 they were declared a World Heritage Site, and deservedly so! This was actually my MOST recent venture into China, just a couple of weeks ago, so you’ll hear a lot more about it. [
Quick Guide – Get to the city of Kaiping and stay in the Milan Hotel. It’s a great central hotel within a 2 minute walk from the bus station (YES a real 2 minute walk – I really travel remember!). From there ask at reception about doing the tour out to the amazing Diaolou. There are leaflets in reception.
So there you have it – 3 fascinating World Heritage Sites to see in China! Love the travel lifestyle!
