Regular weekly food and travel contributor at

A writer, photographer and China specialist, Fiona divides her time between China and Australia, trawling the streets for good eats and great stories for international food and travel publications such as Saveur, Serious Eats, CNNTravel, and The Cleaver Quarterly, amongst others.

An irrepressible traveler with an infinite appetite, Fiona Reilly has spent her life traveling the world, more recently with her husband and two daughters. After moving to China in 2009 she discovered a deep love of writing. She now splits her time between Australia and China, and between her two jobs - as a pediatric emergency physician, and as a food and travel writer. 

Fiona’s award-winning China photography can be enjoyed in magazines and websites around the world. In addition she has completed major photographic commissions for The Springs Shanghai, the China headquarters of international developers Tishman Speyer, Bloomsbury Publishers London, and The Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital in Brisbane.

A self-confessed dumpling expert and street food tragic, Fiona can often be found camera in hand and hungry as hell, searching China’s backroads and alleyways for her next story. She writes about her favourite Chinese street foods and out-of-the-way places on her food and travel blog, Life on Nanchang Lu, winner of the 2014 Bloggie for Best Asian Weblog.
