For most avid travellers, visiting as many countries and as many UNESCO World Heritage Sites can be a dream come true.

As a travel enthusiast Nillah Nyakoa has always wondered whether working at UNESCO can be a rewarding experience that gives anyone an unlimited access to world famous locations; and whether that also guarantees you frequent travels to unique famous spots anywhere.   

Marielza Oliveira is the Director at UNESCO China. Nillah recently caught up with her in Beijing while attending the United Nations day celebrations where she talked with her on her experiences travelling to some of the most breathtaking World Heritage Sites in China and abroad.
