20 Dollar Traveling! Video Series: 2016 Schedule


Holy Cow! 我的天啊!It seems like this 20 Dollar Travel video series might actually work out! The pilot episode of 20 Dollar Traveling (Shanghai) was relatively popular, especially in China. In fact, lots of opportunities have suddenly emerged after the video went viral on Chinese social media, which makes me very excited for what’s ahead. Anyway, check out this post to view a preliminary schedule for the upcoming series.
