Whether you’re an artist or not, frequenting the same places day by day can get you stuck in a rut. Everything has become so familiar to you, to the point that it can become so unstimulating. So every once in a while, try to go out and explore. Travelling can get you that change of pace and environment you might just need to get inspired. And when you’re out there, don’t hesitate to try out activities outside your comfort zone. So if you’re looking to indulge your creative side while you go on tour around Asia, visit these art cafés that’ll let you experience something different. Who knows? What you learn there might inspire you to create something better when you get back.
