This thread is open to all to share your oversea photos which include sceneries, food, theme parks, culture, or other nice and interesting photos.

Looking forward to see other popular nice places like Taiwan,Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Shanghai, Australia, Europe etc.

You can also contribute photos not taken by you, it can be from a link or from other website just as long you think the picture is nice and you wish to share with everyone here.

Just a run-down of the Big 3 stadium tours I went for (I passed by Stamford Bridge and didn't bother since their museum should be nearly empty and their merchandise is mostly embossed with their ugly cheap plastic crest instead of traditional stitching like most other clubs):



OT tour+museum - £8.50 (cheaper group rate if you book at the Tourist Office next to the Manchester City Library... £9 if you get it from OT yourself. Hourly tours so it is easy to move around, ask questions etc. Friendly and professional old fellas who are life-long fans and try to answer any cock questions from us visitors including some "jokes" from the 2 Chel$$ki fans in my first group. Many visitors but the hourly tours make it an enjoyable proper tour for the visitor with smaller sized groups.)



Anfield tour+museum - £10 (a few tours daily so it is always a big crowd that makes it difficult to move around and even more difficult to hear/decipher the thick Scouse accent of the young wise-cracking guides. Having only a few tours daily is a bit cheap IMO as it allows them to squeeze as many visitors as possible per tour.)



Arsenal-Emirates tour+museum - £12 (a few tours daily but fking expensive and the least impressive museum even though it is the newest. But friendly experienced guides who know their stuff and let us visitors take our time.)

Now my support should be clearer :D....







Went for 2 tours on a single ticket... they have a tour every hour and the guides are mostly kindly old life-long fans who can answer most questions you can throw at them about Manchester United. Arsenal also use very knowledgeable old fans as guides. The Anfield guides were instead young guys in their 20s who like to act the typical "streetwise cool" Scouse and crack too many unnecessary "jokes" during the tour.

View of the Emirates home team dressing room a few days before Henry's departure was announced. Captain's and Vice-Captain's places are at the centre of the seats in the oval-shaped room (better Feng Shui according to Wenger's design requirements). First Eleven players get double the space of squad players.



btw, I remember some people talking about not getting the Tiger ad with the Liverpool hairdresser. The Anfield Boot room has a few of these specialised wall-mounted hair-dryers. The guide announced to us as part of his script that it is a running joke that Alonso and Luis Garcia are the biggest users of these things... so there.



You remember the Tiger ad with the hairdresser? Now you know why :D



Anfield home team dressing room. One of the several wall-mounted hairdryers next to regular user Xabi Alonso's seat, as proudly told by the Anfield tour guide.

The Arse Tub at the Emirates in comparison. The guide said that Wenger personally helped design the home team dressing room using Feng Sui experts... he picked up his beliefs in Feng Sui from his time as manager of Nagoya Grampus Eight in the J-League :o
