A Self Guided Winter Walking Expedition Around Helsinki 
What in the heavens were we thinking? We could have caught some serious… colds. Walking endlessly around the Nordic wintered out city seems to be funny idea for many, but not for these bunch of Asians. To battle our jetlagged brains, we opted for the unobvious choice – not coffee, not sleep, not rest, but wandering around. This design district known as Helsinki seems to be one of the best Nordic cities to explore on foot, whatever the season or reason. The Helsinki map alone will easily interesting story that you deserve to discover it by just walking around, instead of relying too much on hop on hop off bus tours, or any tours for that matter! If you ask me - What's the best way to make the most of Helsinki on foot? I’ll tell you walk everywhere, because the city’s main attractions are actually really close to each other!

It’s very easy to get to know #MyHelsinki on foot. Not only do they have free walking tours, self-guided walking tours, and different walking routes around town, the city itself has a lot of information for tourists and travelers to ensure utmost enjoyment of the city. What I really like about this city is that their Helsinki Tourist Information offers helper tourist guides, region tourist information, and brochures / maps to people who are interested to do a DIY should you decide to get around or do a stopover in Helsinki. As soon as my troop and I left our backpacker bags, and recharged our camera batteries, we swiftly stole the nearest McDonald’s hot coffee available and out-and-about we went – no sleep no regrets for us, as the sightseeing, trips, and guidance around Helsinki are really easy to enjoy and experience.

I don’t know where to start, but to be honest, there are so many reasons to enjoy Helsinki on foot, and even on a winter season. There’s something about the snow and everlasting white noise seen on the walls and all that makes the world-renowned Finnish modern design heritage nicer. The main sights that are in walkable are the Senate Square, Helsinki Cathedral, Tori Quarters, Market Square, Old market Hall, and the Esplanade Park. Likewise, seeing that the sea is nearby – that the city center is just in close proximity to the sea shoreline, is just white-wow. This Nordic archipelago is full of Maritime attractions to enjoy too.

It took us two to three full days to leisurely (read: slowly) walk around and see this compact yet functional Finnish city. To be fair, it took as longer than what we expected, because we relishing around certain place longer than intended; also, there are no great traffic jams, the public transport system like tourist trams (or even cruise ships) is amazing, cycling is easy --- but we decided not to take any of those – instead, we relied heavily on our leg muscles to burn fats from all the never-ending foot feasts we did (read: delicious local food culture, yes). Although the people here are NOT as loquacious and as sociable to Asian travelers as in other cities I have visited, I observed that the locals are genuinely happy to help travelers make the most of our visit. So yes, what’s your #MyHelsinki story?
