Egypt - Tales of the two cities of the Ancient Wonders !! Egypt is one of those countries which contains one of the age -old civilizations in the world. it is a delight, for the history buffs as well as for the others, to contemplate the ancient architecture and get woven into the ancient tales of the kings & queens & pharaohs & sphinx. Luxor and Aswan are the two cities which consist of the ancient temples and give a major part toward understanding the ancient Egypt civilization. Let’s start our journey.. Luxor, which was once known as Thebes (the capital of Ancient Egypt) is located in Southern Egypt- 670 km South of Cairo. Luxor today is a city of around 150, 000 people. This city is prominent for being an “open air museum” because of its unique archaeological monuments.Luxor is the second most visited tourist city in Egypt after Cairo. Extravagant monuments such as Karnak Temple, The Luxor Temple, Valley of Kings, Valley of Queens and many more are the reason for this. The Karnak Temple Complex (which was known as Ipet-isut during the time of the Pharaohs) is the most famous temple in Luxor. It was built by the pharaohs for over 2000 years and was dedicated to the Pharaoh Amun. What makes this temple unique is the fact that around 30 Pharaohs contributed to it, which made it reach a size and diversity not seen in any other temple in the world. The Karnak consists of four main parts, but only one of them is accessible to tourists. It entails some of the most luxurious examples of Ancient Egyptian design and architecture. In addition, there are also several performances of the sound and light shows at night, which is simply a show which platforms the monument using audio and visual effects. The Luxor Temple is amongst one of the beauties of Luxor. It is a large ancient temple complex located on the East bank of the Nile River. Amanhotep II and Ramses II built it in 14000 B.C. Built with sandstone, this temple’s main purpose was to celebrate the Festival of Opet. This festival was by far the largest and most important celebration by the Pharaohs. It was held in honor of the great Pharaoh Amun in the season of flood. The Valley of Kings (also known as Biban El Melouk) is situated in the ancient site of Thebes. It was the burial place of Egypt’s New Kingdom Rulers. The tomb of Tutankhamun (King Tut) that was discovered in the 1920’s is located there. In addition there is also a Valley of Queens, which is the place where the wives of the Pharaohs were buried. It was originally called Ta-Set-Neferu, which means “the place of the children of the pharaohs” because along with the Queens there were also princes and princesses buried there. The legendary Queen Nefertiti’s tomb lies in The Valley of Queens.One of the must-do activities in Luxor is going on a hot air balloon ride and discovering the city ‘s most prominent monuments from up above.Another activity carried by most tourists visiting the city of Luxor is going on a Nile boat cruise from Luxor to Aswan. Enjoy a lavish Nile River cruise and discover some of Egypt’s most enchanting natural beauty. Aswan, (previously known as Syene during Ancient Egypt) is located about 81 KM south of Luxor. This small modern city has a population of about 230, 000 people who are mostly Nubians. (People of an ancient region of Northeastern Africa).Aswan is distinctively embellished for having a beautiful setting on the Nile.You can begin your day in Aswan by going on a relaxing tour on a Felluca (which is a wooden sail boat) on the Nile River.The two islands you must visit are the Elephantine Island and the Botanical Garden Island. Elephantine Island is the biggest island there and its history goes all the way back to the pre-dynastic period. It was the place where ancient Egyptians first resided when they first settled in the area. There are many attractions in this Island Such as The Nilometer, the Philae Museum and the Temple of Khunum.The Botanical Garden is by far considered a natural treasure by the people of Aswan. The history of this Garden goes all the way back to the 1890s. The island was given to Lord Horatio Kitchener when he was commander of the Egyptian army. Kitchener had a tremendous passion for plants and palm trees so he turned this island into a botanical garden.In this garden you can find a vast variety of plantations and trees that were found naturally on the island. In addition, there are also a wide number of extremely rare trees such as the Royal Palm Tree, The Sabal Palm Tree and the Pam tree. Located near Aswan is the famous High Dam of Egypt. Built in around the 1960’s this dam is considered to be an engineering miracle as it provides electricity and irrigation for the entire nation of Egypt. Take a walk through Egypt’s major historical monuments and make your visit to Luxor and Aswan an unforgettable history lesson on Egypt’s most ancient cities. The best time to visit these two cities would be during the winter as the weather during that time is extremely awesome.
Taiwan- Jiu Fen Old Street You Need to Visit This Amazing Place! Feel spirited away in this decommissioned gold mining mountain town, originally built by the Japanese and now a maze of lanes and alleyways with rich history and culture. Many would have been and heard of Jiufen, but apart from the usual tea sessions overlooking the mountains and seas, there are a few other good eats you need to look out for when exploring the smaller lanes. Founded during the Qing Dynasty, this small town was a relatively isolated village until the discovery of gold during the Japanese occupation in 1893, quickly developing the town due to a gold rush. Many buildings in the town remain unchanged to this day, reflecting the Japanese influence on both architecture and culture on the island. During World War II, the town housed a Japanese prisoner of war camp where captured Allied Force soldiers (mainly British) were forced to work in the gold mines. After the war, gold mining activities declined, and the town today exists mainly as a tourist destination remembering and celebrating Taiwanese history and culture. A convenient way to visit Jiufen is to take a shuttle bus from Ximen, leaving in the morning and returning before dinner. From the beginning of the 1990s, Jiufen experienced a tourist boom that has shaped the town into an attraction easily accessible from Taipei City as a nice day trip (around 2 hours away roundtrip by public transit). Today, the town is filled with both retro Chinese and Japanese style cafés, tea houses, and souvenir shops, as well as fantastic views of the ocean. The majority of attractions are concentrated along the cobblestone steps of Shuqi Road between Jiufen Elementary School and the Jiufen police precinct. The three roads running perpendicular to Shuqi Road (Jishan St., Qiche Rd., and Qingbian Rd.) each boast a wide variety of shops, restaurants, and cafés. Besides the main roads, there are numerous small alleys and lanes that snake around the area and sometimes even run beneath buildings. Explore Jiufen and the surrounding mountain area as part of a tour inclusive of transportation with an English-speaking guide to enjoy your day without having to worry about taking public transportation in and out of Taipei City. While most visitors come to Jiufen as part of a day trip, many enjoy staying overnight at one of Jiufen's many boutique hotels and B& Bs, called minsu in Taiwan. Since there are a limited amount of guesthouses and hotels in Jiufen and it is one of Taiwan's more popular destinations, early reservation is recommended.
Czech Republic is a historic bridge at sunrise. The Czech Republic is a country steeped in history. It’s been populated for thousands of years and is a land dotted with castles, medieval towns, beautiful mountains, ancient ruins, and world-class wineries. The country sees more and more tourists each year but they mostly stick to Prague. Once you escape that beautiful (but crowded) city you’ll find an inexpensive country with some of the most beautiful and rugged landscape in this part of Europe. I love taking the train from place to place and just staring out the window. If you visit, you’ll probably be coming for Prague but be sure to leave the city and see the rest of what the country has to offer! It’s too often overlooked! When To Go ? In general, the climate is continental, with short, fairly hot summers and chilly winters. Spring can be the best time to visit, as the days tend to warm quickly, with consistently pleasant, mild weather for most of May. This is also the blossom season, when the fruit trees that line so many Czech roads are in full flower. Autumn is also recommended, with clear and settled weather often lasting for days on end in September and October. With much of the country heavily forested, this is also a great time to appreciate the changing colours of the foliage. Where to go ? Before the fall of Communism, a staggering ninety percent of foreign tourists visiting the country never strayed from the environs of the capital, Prague. While that no longer holds true, Prague is still the main focus of most people’s trips to the Czech Republic, certainly English-speaking tourists. Although the country is small, the variety in landscape and architecture is enormous, encompassing the forests and rolling countryside of Bohemia, peaceful spa towns like Karlovy Vary, Moravia’s spectacular karst region and historic towns like Olomouc and Český Krumlov.
The Victoria Peak One of the most popular attractions in Hong Kong. If there is only one thing you can do in Hong Kong, go to The Peak. If you have many things to do here, still go to The Peak. The highest point on Hong Kong Island, this has been the city’s most exclusive neighborhood since colonial times — back then it was the cooler air that attracted the rich and famous; in the post air-conditioning era, the views of one of the world’s most spectacular city escapes keep them coming. Vantage Points The anvil-shaped The Peak Tower has a large viewing platform called Sky Terrace 428, in addition to dining and retail outlets. Nearby, The Peak Galleriahas a free-entry observation deck, as well as shopping and dining options. More Head to Lugard Road Lookout and Lions Point View Pavilion for more stunning views. For leisurely unfolding vistas, take the 3.5-kilometer Peak Circle Walk. The Peak Tram Riding the Peak Tram is a visual experience in its own right — Hong Kong Island’s skyscrapers slide past your window at what appear to be impossible angles as you make the ascent to The Peak on the city’s historic, funicular railway. Located at Lower Terminus, The Peak Tram Historical Gallery is a way of paying tribute to The Peak Tram, its heritage and the history of Hong Kong. Since 1888, The Peak Tram has served Hong Kong, quietly witnessing 120 years of the city's changes. The gallery brings back many memories for local visitors and gives overseas visitors a glimpse of how the Pearl of the Orient has come to shine.
