  • Jewish Museums of North Americ Jewish Museums of North America

    • From: laurierappeport
    • Description:

       

      The Jewish population of the United States stands at barely 3% of America's total residents but the community has been an intergral part of the American landscape since Colonial times. Throughout the country museums, small and large, exist which attest to the unique role that Jews see for themselves in America and their commitment to their heritage.

      Wherever I travel I try to search out Jewish museums. Every region gives its own flavor to the American Jewish experience and by observing them I enjoy the opportunity to see the American Jewish world in all is diversity.

      Jewish Museum of Oregon

      In the mid-1800s the German Jewish immigration to American began to gain momentum. Most of these immigrants settled along the East Coast but some adventurous pioneers moved westward. In 1849  two German Jewish immigrants traveled to Oregon and settled in the frontier town of Portland. By 1853 enough additional Jewish men had arrived in the town to create the need for a boardinghouse for Jewish bachelors and  the Jewish community continued to expand.

       

      Today Portland has a vibrant Jewish community. The Jewish Museum of Oregon traces the Jewish presence in the northeast with a wide range of exhibits that help you appreciate the sacrifices that the early Jewish settlers made to come and live in the Pacific Northwest. The museum houses a large archive that contains documents, photos and artifacts that document the Jewish immigration and settlement in the region. You can also listen to some of the old-timers whose memories are recorded via the museum's  oral history program.  

       

      Modern Portland Jewish history is on display via temporary exhibits which display Judaica and elements of Jewish culture and tradition. These exhibits are not necessarily unique to Oregon, but their inclusion in the museum ensures that the exhibits meet the needs of present-day visitors for Jewish information. Films, concerts and lectures are scheduled throughout the year -- the website provides information about these events.

       

       

      Jewish Museum of Charleston

      It may seem incongruous to have a full-blown, high quality Jewish museum in a city with a miniscule Jewish population but 200 years ago there were more Jews in Charleston than in almost any other American colony. Charleston is the historical home of one of North America's first Jewish communities. The Charter of South Carolina, written in 1669, granted liberty of conscience to all residents, specifically noting "Jews, heathens, and dissenters." Spanish, Portuguese and Dutch Jews saw Charleston as a haven where they could  live freely as Jews. Charleston was a center of Jewish life until well into the 20th century and a congregation still remains.

       

      The Jewish Museum of Charleston displays a wide range of exhibits that explore Jewish culture, showing how Jews celebrated and commemorated holidays and rituals hundreds of years ago till today. The museum's permanent exhibition -- Culture and Continuity: The Jewish Journey examines the Jewish experience of the last 4000 years as it is perceived through various art forms. The display area presents a diverse collection of archaeological objects, ceremonial implements, photographs, videos and interactive media that offers an overview of the American Jewish experience.

       

      The museum is located in the Kahal Kadosh synagogue. Kahal Kadosh was built in 1749 to serve the Sephardic (Spanish and Portuguese) Jews. It became one of America's first Reform Temples when the changing demographics of the Charleston Jewish community created a need for change in the mid 1800s.  The Museum traces the history of this evolution as well as of the Reform reinterpretation of Jewish traditions, the interaction of Jewish community of Charleston with other cultures and the impact that these historical events have had on American Jewish life.

       

      Breman Jewish Heritage Museum

      There are Holocaust Museums all over the world but the Breman Jewish Heritage Museum, located in Atlanta Georgia, tells the story of the Holocaust by exploring the lives of over 400 survivors who made their way to Georgia and Alabama after the war.

       

      Using documents, photos and biographical details of the survivors the museum demonstrates the progression of the Holocaust years, starting with the persecutions and moving on to the ghettos, the concentration camps and, for very few, final freedom.

       

      Holocaust survivors that made their way to the southern United States have become successful and valued members of their communities. These people gave their time, money and memories to  the museum to contribute to Holocaust education in their community. Probably the most moving part of the museum involved the survivors' stories which personalized the exhibit in a way that photos and documents can never achieve. The Breman museum adds a great deal to the public's knowledge and understanding of the Holocaust.

        

      Milken Archives of Jewish Music

      The Los Angeles-based Milken Archives of Jewish Music was created by the Milken Foundation as a resource through which the history and the evolution of American Jewry can be traced by examining Jewish American liturgy and music. Beginning with data that documents the 17th century Sephardic Jews who arrived from Brazil, the Archive documents the unique songs and chants that are associated with American Jewish history.

       

      The first Jews in America were of Spanish and Portuguese origin. After they escaped the Inquisition they moved to Holland and from Holland they joined the expeditions to the New World. When Portugal conquered Brazil from Holland and brought the Inquisition to South America the Jews fled northward to the new American colonies. They brought their Iberian traditions and Sephardic culture with them and early American Jewish worship was characterized by Sephardic melodies and liturgy.

       

      German Jews began to immigrate to America in the mid-1800s. Some synagogues incorporated the new German customs, including those of the German-based Reform denomination, into their services. By the late 1800s a great immigration that would eventually encompass over 2 million Eastern European Jews was underway -- this wave laid the groundwork for an American Jewish community that, until today, is mostly Ashkanazic. The Milken Archives has created recordings that trace each of these groups through their prayers, especially Ashkanazi cantorial music. As a researcher who is interested in American Jewish history, I found numerous helpful resources and materials available at the Archives. The Archives also offer these resources online.

  • 10 Luxury Family Holiday Desti 10 Luxury Family Holiday Destinations 2014

    • From: dharmender
    • Description:

      As travel to the four corners of the world has become more accessible, an abundance of choice has been created for the family traveller. Yet at the same time as the globe opens up, the options available for a rarefied experience narrow. 

      For family holiday makers in search of luxury, the chance to provide their children with culturally rich excursions that expand their world view are proving to be key drivers in determining choice. To help, here is a list of ten destinations that offer children and adults alike the chance to indulge in the luxury of experience in the maximum of comfort. 

      Barbados 

      The culture the exotic island of Barbados is defined by is its West African, British and Indian historical legacy. This ensures that cricket, afternoon tea and Christianity remain staple passions of the local Bajans, who need no excuse to proudly boast of the fact that there are more churches than bars on the island. 

      The aesthetic too is shaped by this legacy, as the old stone churches and sugar plantations characterise the scenery of this Caribbean gem as much as the glorious white sandy beaches and dreamy ocean views. In terms of luxury hotels, Sandy Lane provides a plethora of activities and facilities to cater for every family need. 
       

      Dubai 

      As recently as 20 years ago, Dubai as we know it simply didn’t exist. Now, however, it’s a bustling ever-changing metropolis set in the heart of the Persian Gulf. A destination of complete opposites, the tranquillity of the desert close by provides a taste of traditional Arabia that is of stark contrast to the ultra-modern shopping malls and extravagant opulence found in the city. 

      Excursions and activities for the whole family are integrated into Dubai’s vibrant tourist economy. For example, one of the most expensive and extravagant hotels found anywhere in the world, the Burj al Arab, now runs the the Jumeirah project; a turtle rehabilitation programme that in its final stage allows children to release the reinvigorated reptiles back into the sea. 

      Egypt 

      Since the dawn of its ancient civilisation Egypt is a country that has been synonymous with luxury. And with its wide range of world class hotels and facilities, this statement is as true today as it ever was. 

      For family travellers looking to indulge into the rich history of Egypt, the city of Luxor provides the ideal central location to plan your adventures from, with the Valley of the Kings nearby. Similarly, as Egypt is home to two of the Seven Wonders of the World in the form of The Great Pyramid of Giza and the Lighthouse of Alexandria, the timeless options for families in search of cultural enrichment are plentiful. 

      France 

      From the romance of Paris right through to the mountainous vistas of the Alps, France is home to a rich and varied landscape. In terms of culture, food and drink is central to the way of life. Therefore France is the perfect country to refine the palette of young and old, with dynamic markets, top class restaurants and hidden eateries aplenty.      

      The Evian resort, just 3km away from the gorgeous Lake Geneva on the Swiss border, provides a fantastic family choice regarding accommodation. For more information on the Evian resort and the activities on offer there, visitwww.totstoo.com/destinations. An additional consideration for those with a very young family intent on embarking on a foreign holiday is the relatively short travel times between the UK and destinations in France. 

      Italy 

      An expedition to Italy offers families a varied spectrum of classical ruins, impressive architecture and fine food, that as a collective represent an amalgamation of culture and history which any place in the world will struggle to compete with. 

      Venice and Florence are just two of many cities that offer a multitude of iconic and beautiful experiences. Whilst Lake Garda which resides within the foothills of the beautiful Dolomites, presents a package of gorgeous hotels, stunning scenery and outdoor pursuits to satisfy even the most demanding of luxury family holiday makers. 

      The United Kingdom 

      For those families with a large brood, travelling abroad in search of a luxury experience can be a daunting and stressful experience. This is why many are choosing keep their holiday plans restricted to local shores, as destinations can be reached simply by jumping in a car or on a train. 

      Rural escapes like the Yorkshire Moors, the Cotswolds and the Jurassic Coast provide rugged and beautiful landscapes full of adventure and opportunity for exploration. Furthermore, cities such as London and Liverpool offer vibrant, multicultural environments that provide an illustration of what defines modern Britain.  

      Seychelles 

      Even though the land mass is small, the Seychelles landscape is diverse, encompassing mountains, tropics, coral islands and  isolated beaches that are the epitome of paradise. For tourists that hold nature close to their hearts, the islands are home to the world renownedCousin Island Special Reserve, a national park teeming with wildlife that is famed for its approach to conservation and eco-tourism. 

      As tourism is the lifeblood of the island, there is a number of beautiful and facility laden hotels and resorts optimised for family comfort. All things considered, the Seychelles offers a unique opportunity for families to explore and absorb the rarest of things; paradise on earth. 

      Finnish Lapland 

      It’s not just the prospect of seeing Father Christmas that makes Finnish Lapland a magical family holiday prospect. Situated near the Arctic Circle, the country is one of the few places on earth that is ideal for viewing the spectacular skies that the Northern Lights produce. 

      Surrounded by amazing alpine surrounding, Hotel Kakslauttanen presents the perfect winter bolthole complete with a range of family-centric activities nearby. These include snow rides led by both huskies and reindeers that traverse icy roads and a possible visit toSanta’s resort.

      It goes without saying that for the best experience families should visit during the festive period, and although this will be expensive, children will be provided with an experience they will never forget. 

      Oman 

      Sweeping deserts and idyllic coastlines provide the unadulterated beauty that has seen Oman fittingly referred to as the Jewell of Arabia. Juxtaposing modernity and tradition the country of Oman delivers a holiday experience that is unique to anywhere in the world. Although because of the extreme heat experienced in the summer months, the best time to visit Oman is between October and March. 

      The influx of wealth to the country has ensured that holidaymakers are able to enjoy access to an innumerable range of world-class, child-friendly facilities, which include resorts, shopping districts, attractions and hotels that cater for every family need conceivable. The most accessible part of the Oman coast resides near the capital of Muscat, where there is the opportunity to embark on dolphin watching tours that will cast each generation in a state of awe and provide an unforgettable experience.  

      Greece 

      For children who are old enough to appreciate it, a visit to Greece offers the chance to appreciate the uniquely rich cultural heritage of a country that has shaped much of what continues to define western civilisation. 

       

      Made up of over 2,000 islands, Greece includes golden sandy beaches, seafront taverns and amazing hotels, including Westin Resort Costa Navarino. From here families can engage in water sports and other activities, as well as using it as a hub for nearby excursions which take in the countries rich historical legacy.

  • Fly to Indonesia with Airasia Fly to Indonesia with Airasia for best experience

    • From: mansumseo
    • Description:

      Indonesia is the home of the second largest natural biodiversity in the world, with animals and plants of both Asian and Australasian origins. Visitors to the Islands can still experience tigers, orangutans and elephants in their natural environments. Taking the opportunity to fly to Indonesia with airasia is the best experience when you want to see the Indonesian forests using Indonesia airlines, as well as its beaches and volcanoes may be one of the best decisions you make.

      Forest adventures

      Over 60% of Indonesia is covered with forest. While the areas are in decline they still host a wide range of plants and animals that can no longer be seen in many other countries. Flying into Sumatra puts you close to the heart of some of the most rugged landscape that Indonesia has to offer. From here you can see many of the world's most endangered species.

      Wonders of the water

      If you prefer the water to trees then make your destination Sulawei. Here you can experience some of the most amazing underwater sights Indonesia has to offer. There are plenty of professional diving schools and centers on offer. Divers of most levels should find their needs catered for. Lesser Sunda also offers the opportunity for spectacular diving, as well as sightings of the wonderful Komodo Lizards that can be found sunning themselves in this area.

      Beach life

      Vacations don't have to be all about hikes, dives and activity. Sometimes it is nice to find a quiet spot on the beach and just relax. If this is more of your type of break then book your flight to land in Bali. The island is small enough to drive around in just one day, but it has a lot to offer in this small space. You will find stretches of quiet crisp white sand, busy commercial beaches and areas of jet black sand. If you decide that you need a break from the sea and sand then there are plenty of historical and culturally significant sites for you to visit. Bali is the home of Pura Luhur Ulu Watu Temple. It can be found perched high in the cliffs and overlooking the ocean below.

      City life

      If you want to see Indonesia at its most culturally diverse then book your flight to arrive into Java. Here you are in the heart of some of the most diverse cities on earth and in easy traveling distance from Jakarta. The sights and smells of Jakarta will take more than one visit to fully appreciate. You can begin your journey by visiting the Museum Sejarah Jakarta or the Museum National to gain an insight into the history of the islands.

      If your idea of a city break is more about shopping then you will be amazed by the diversity and quality available in Jakarta. There are a plethora of markets and street shops selling traditional goods and foods. There are also several large malls, such as the Plaza Indonesia, that sell high end fashions and luxury goods.

      You are spoilt for choice when it comes to places to go in Indonesia. To make sure you get the best of your time away plan your travel carefully. Consider what it is you most want to be able to experience and choose your destination accordingly.

  • Holiday Apartments in Tel Aviv Holiday Apartments in Tel Aviv: Make Your Vacation Extra Special

    • From: Evetelaviv
    • Description:

      Tel Aviv is a progressive city with a rich past. It is also located in a country that has a very interesting role in the world’s most influential religions. Touring this city simply means enjoying the best of what a modern metropolis can offer while giving you a glimpse of historical heritage that goes back to the time of Christ. This interesting mix of elements is what makes Tel Aviv truly unique among the many popular destination cities in the world. But how can you make your stay in Tel Aviv more special and meaningful? Rent your very own holiday apartment!


      Holiday apartments in Tel Aviv are all over town and that is good news. There are just some things you need to carefully consider before booking a vacation rental. First of all know just how much you are willing to spend on your very own address in the city. There are luxury apartments that boast all the amenities you can ever think of with spacious rooms and stunningly beautiful interiors. But this can also cost you a lot. Create a checklist of the amenities you really need, the number of rooms you want, and other services you might need to have access to while in the property. This can help you stay within your budget and even help you trade off some amenities to serve your budget best.


      Another very important consideration is the location of your holiday apartment. It is of course common sense that it should be located right at the heart of the city but to make it more specific to your needs, you need to identify first the things you want to see and do while in the city. Are you into shopping? What kind of shopping do you wish to do? These are only some questions that can help you identify the best places you can look for an apartment. Whether you want to shop for locally designed haute couture, antique items, or just about anything (like flea market items) you can be sure to find the perfect vacation rental that is just a stone throw’s away from the nearest top shopping spots in the city.


      One of the best advantages of Tel Aviv apartment rental is the unique chance for a guest like you to have neighbors that grew up in Tel Aviv. What can you get from local folks on the other side of your street? One of the most special things locals can offer you is conversations. These casual talks give you a better understanding of the city and its people. Talking to a Tel Aviv resident beats reading travel blogs about Tel Aviv. Staying in a holiday apartment puts you where the people are and this provides you with avenues to engage them regularly. In time you can build relationships like how a new resident does it. You go above and beyond tourism and become part of the city itself.

  • ACROSS NORTHERN VIETNAM ON TWO ACROSS NORTHERN VIETNAM ON TWO WHEELS

    • From: acitvetraveasia
    • Description:
      By David Atkinson
      Motorbiking North Vietnam
      Traveling around Vietnam by motorbike, seeing breathtaking landscapes, beautiful mountain passes, interesting historical relics, colorful, friendly and happy people…makes you love Vietnam more and gives us extremely special feeling.
      I love the thrill of the open road. Shades on, foot to the floor and cruising through alien landscapes with the stereo cranked right up.
      But Vietnam was just about the last place I expected to find myself on a road trip. Self-drive isn’t really an option here.
      And, as for the State-approved backpacker bus trips, well, let’s just say that rubbing knees with the tie-dye clad hordes and eating in the tourist restaurant, where the bus driver always collects his kickback, isn’t my scene.
      Easy rider
      It sounded perfect. A way to get my engine running and get out on the highway while staying off-the-beaten-track and seeing the real Vietnam.
      Road to Northern Vietnam
      Activetravel Asia is one of the Indochina's leading adventure travel companies. They offer a wide selection of Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia adventure tours, including hiking and trekking, biking, motorcycling, overland touring and family travel packages. ATA’s packages and tailor-made private itineraries take you through exotic destinations to really experience the culture, history and nature of Asia.  They have made hundreds of trips into the backwaters of the far north, building up a comprehensive motorbike guide to northern Vietnam.
      “The bikes are old 50’s designs straight out of Belarussia. They’re the backbone of the country and used by everyone to haul goods around,” 
      “They don’t go very fast, use a lot of petrol and billow out a lot of smoke, but they’ll get you anywhere,” he adds.
      “Besides, they’re very easy to fix. If you’ve got a stick and a rock you can fix a Minsk.”
      Cruise control 
      With the sun in our faces, we join the highway near Hanoi’s Noi Bai airport and start the slow climb northwards. As we progress at a steady 35km/h, overtaking lumbering trucks soon gives way to overtaking lumbering water buffalo who eye suspiciously as we file past the paddy fields.
      We stop for dinner that night in Tuyen Quang. It’s a dusty one-ass town dominated by trucker rest stops and so-called bia om or ‘cuddle beer’ outlets where the town’s two attractions make for natural bedfellows.
      As we settle down for the night in the shabby state-owned hotel, one of my fellow easy riders, Casey McCarthy from Texas, tells me why she has chosen a severe buttock buffing on a motorbike in the rain for her holiday.
      “I’d never seen a Minsk before Vietnam and, although it’s ancient technology, it’s a very easy ride,” she says. “I guess I just wanted to get away from those cattle-truck bus trips and a bike trip is the best way to see the countryside as you decide where and when you want to go.”
      The next day we’re up with the light and, after a hearty bowl of Vietnamese pho bo(a rice noodle soup with strips of beef), we’re back in the saddle and on the road for Ha Giang.
      As we stop for petrol at what looks like a roadside chemistry set, I ask Digby what kind of people are attracted to the idea of driving around rural Vietnam on a piece of Russian war-era machinery.
      “Half are motorbike riders back home or people with some previous experience but not all. I’d never ridden a bike until I came to Vietnam,” he explains, taking a little bottle of engine oil and mixing it with petrol.
      “Drive bikes and you will crash but drive slow enough and you’ll be OK,” he adds, handing over a dollar for two litres. “If we go over, we’ll just slide – unless we hit something. But it’s nothing like driving at 130km back home when you get washed up off the road”.
      Alien invasion
      Hagiang province, Vietnam
      The last 50km to Ha Giang is made up of winding country lanes. It’s a drive not best experienced at dusk when huge trucks with dazzling headlights tear around blind corners with scant regard for approaching fellow truckers, let alone a bunch of foreigners on motorbikes in dayglo jackets.
      As we make the final approach, it feels like entering a long-forgotten Wild West outpost. The locals stare at us like aliens just beamed down from another planet but Digby is used to it.
      “I regularly go to places where only a handful of strangers have ever been before. Just two weeks ago, I took a tour to a place where only three foreigners had ever visited before the new road was built,” he smiles.
      “Just as I was thinking that I’d been everywhere possible, the Vietnamese Government has launched a programme to build roads to each commune so a there’s now a whole bunch of new roads to explore,” he adds.
      “That’s why I do this. It isn’t so much a tour as a road trip where the guide is having as much fun as the customers.”

      Ten Tips for London

       

      London is one of the world's great cities. It has been almost continuously inhabited for over 2000 years and was the epicentre of the worlds largest empire for three centuries. Generations of wealthy Londoners with philanthropic inclinations have resulted in today's magnificent collection of public buildings. Creative reuse of resources and enlightened urban planning have resulted in a superb transit system. For North Americans there is no, or at worst only a small, language barrier to overcome. Do not be offended, for example, if someone asks you what time you would like to be knocked up. London is not inexpensive however. Here are ten tips to help keep your London trip on track and under budget..

       

      EasyHotels

       

      EasyHotel is a chain of budget priced hotels which has five locations in London These hotels are tremendously inexpensive by European standards. Our South Kensington room in Central London, which was only two blocks from a tube station, cost 47 pounds per night including tax. Locations are usually found in renovated older buildings. The rooms are spartan. Bathrooms are constructed of acrylic material . Wall Panels and ceilings are made of plastic panels. Amenities that are expected in hotel rooms like closets, chairs and coat hangars will not be found. Room cleaning, windows, television and Wifi are all extra cost items. If you are looking for a relaxing haven to retreat to from the bustle of London look elsewhere. If you are seeking a clean, quiet, inexpensive place to sleep at night give EasyHotel a try. The website is at http://www.easyhotel.com.

       

      Transit

       

      Visitors arriving at Heathrow can get their first experience with London transit by taking the tube (subway/light rail) to the city centre. An unlimited travel pass for central London, covering bus and tube travel will cost 7 pounds per day. This pass is available after 9:30 a.m. when the morning rush has subsided . If your stay in London will be 4 days or longer, get a weekly pass for 28 pounds. These circumvent the 9:30 a.m. restriction as well. A passport size photo is required for the weekly pass so bring a spare one with you. Tube transport is very efficient but the perspective from the top of a |London double decker bus is unique. Get on one going in your direction. You can always use the tube to get where you are going after you get lost on the bus.

       

      Phones.

       

      There is no need to get burned by mobile telephone roaming charges here. To take advantage of low European telephone rates make sure that your GSM phone is unlocked before you get here. If you don't have a GSM phone, unlocked refurbished units are available for under $100.00 in Canada. If smart phone type capability is required, get one that is equipped with Wifi. Upon arrival in London go to the first mobile telephone store that you see and purchase a SIM card and some phone time. On this visit I went with the Mobile provider Lebara. The SIM card was 5:00 pounds and talk and text airtime was another 5:00. Rates vary depending on call type, but the airtime was sufficient for 100 minutes calling a local land line. Calls to another Lebara subscriber were free which is worth noting if travelling in a group. Lebara coverage was good in London and adequate outside the city.

       

       

      Leicester Square/Covent Garden/Piccadilly Circus

      |

      The area containing Leicester Square (pronounced Lester), Covent Garden and Piccadilly circus is the centre of tourist activity in London. Tourists from all over the world congregate here. Buskers are a regular feature of the area and they occasionally compete for attention with movie stars at Leicester Square premieres. Covent Garden, the historical site of a fruit and vegetable market, hosts shops and restaurants today. Piccadilly Circus is home to the National Gallery and is only a short walk from Horse Guards and Trafalgar Square..

       

      Theatre

       

      New Yorkers might disagree but London is the English speaking theatre capital of the world. Most of the plays that you have heard of played or are still playing here. The Phantom of the Opera is in it's 26th year of production. In and around Leicester Square are many outlets offering discounted tickets. Many of the people working the booths are theatre buffs who will take the time to help you make your selection. We enjoyed “Noises Off”, a British farce, seated 4 rows from the stage for 36 pounds at the Aldwych theatre.

       

      Pubs

       

      No visit is complete without a stop at a traditional British pub and they don't get much more traditional than Ye Olde Cheddar Cheese. Located in an alley called Wine Office Court off the north side of Fleet Street between Aldwych and Farringdon Road, Ye Olde Cheddar Cheese was rebuilt in 1667. People were a lot shorter in 1667 so if you are 5'9” or above, mind your head when visiting the ground level tap room or negotiating the stairs to the downstairs warren. The pub has a nice collection of draught beers by Smith. Beer is one of the few things in London that North Americans will not find terribly expensive.

       

      Hatchards

       

      The oldest bookstore in London is Hatchards which was founded in 1797 by John Hatchard and still occupies the same location. Do not expect to find dusty old tomes copied by a wizened monk in the 12th century here. Other than it's collection of books by and about Winston Churchill, Hatchards selection is much like that of any other upscale modern bookstore although with more signed copies than most. For book lovers the helpful knowledgeable staff, eclectic layout and the realization that you are treading the the same floors that Dickens probably walked on make the visit worthwhile.

       

      Speakers Corner

       

      For those not overly burdened by the concept of Political Correctness, Speakers Corner is worth a visit. It is in the Northeast Corner of Hyde Park near the Marble Arch tube station. The best time to visit is on a weekend afternoon but you might find someone with a soapbox and an agenda at other times as well. Anyone is free to speak their mind here and members of the audience are free to respond. These exchanges are usually good humoured and often quite witty. Historical figures who are reputed to have exercised their right to free speech here include Karl Marx and Vladimir Lenin.

       

      English Breakfasts

       

      English Breakfasts are famous. The best place to get one is not in your hotel. You will need to find a gritty out of the way cafe that is frequented by locals. They are everywhere although harder to find in the more expensive areas. My current favourite is a hole in the wall cafe in the Hammersmith & City tube station in Hammersmith. These places typically charge between 5 to 7 pounds for selections of bacon, sausage, fried tomato, mushrooms, beans, eggs, potato, toast and coffee or tea. Entertainment is free. London humour is pointed, cynical and merciless. On my last visit two members of a local work crew were mocking a third who had achieved a hangover during an unsuccessful mating attempt. Try to contain your amusement just like the locals do.

       

      Museums and Galleries

      London hosts more than 200 museums and numerous art galleries. Many of these, like the British Museum and Tate Modern, are world reknowned. Others such as The Horse Guards Museum have a specific focus. Many offer free admission to their permanent collections. The best I visited were the British Museum, National Gallery and the Tate Modern. All of these fall into the free category.

      1. Potala Palace 

       

      As a world’s famous tourist site in Tibet and one UNESCO World Heritage site, the Potala is always the first must-see attraction for most travelers travelling to Tibet. Originally built by King Songtsen Gampo in the seventh century, Potala Palace is located on the Red Hill of Lhasa. The awe-inspiring Potala Palace, perched high above much of Lhasa, is the landmark of the city. The Potala Palace includes various chambers for worshipping Buddha and chambers housing the eight stupa that contain the remains of fifth through thirteenth Dalai Lama. The Potala Palace also has treasured a large number of sculptures, murals, scripture and other valuable cultural relics.

       

      2. Jokhang Temple

       

      As the spiritual center of Tibet, travelers have no reason to refuse the Jokhang Temple when travel to Tibet. The Jokhang was also inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage list as part of the historical assemblage of the Potala Palace. With a history of more than 1,300 years, the Jokhang is the fine product of Han, Tibetan and Nepalese architecture techniques. Visitors will be treated to the sight of various exotic and sacred sculptures. Jokhang Temple also houses many invaluable cultural relics.

      When travelling to Lhasa, do not miss this ancient street in the traditional city of Lhasa. The Barkhor Street circling the Jokhang Temple is a place where Tibetan culture, economy, religion and arts assemble.

      5. Sera Monastery

       

      Located about two miles north of Lhasa, and occupying an area of about one-third of a square kilometer, Sera Monastery is one of the three great monasteries in Lhasa of the Geluk school of Tibetan Buddhism. The monastery was named Sera which means wild rose in the Tibetan language, because the hill behind it was covered with wild roses in bloom when it was built.

       

      The highlight of the Sera Monastery is the Buddhist Scripture Debate held at its courtyard by monks in this monastery. As a part of their study, lamas must participate in debates to further their comprehension and proceed to more advanced levels of study. The debating traditions in the Sera Monastery are unique among the three famous monasteries in Lhasa. In a battle of words, they supplement their efforts by using a variety of gestures including clapping their hands, pushing their partners for an answer, or plucking their prayer beads to win the virtue of the Buddha.

       

      If you travel to Tibet, do not miss the exciting and interesting debate. It is usually held around 3:00pm. For a clear view of this unique event, an early arrival is recommended.

  • An exciting tour in Guilin Chi An exciting tour in Guilin China

    • From: x123456
    • Description:

      Having reserved flight tickets a few days ago and made a plan of travel routes, I and some of my friends came to Longsheng County in Guilin by flight. We paid a visit to the scenic area mainly for hot spring bathing, which is said very famous across the country. After 2 hours’ drive, we arrived at Longshen. Putting on bathing suits, we began enjoying hot spring bathing. In the hot spring bathing pool, there are only four of us, probably because it’s too early in the morning. However, we enjoyed the hot spring bathing so much that we didn’t even realized how fast time had gone, for it’s already lunch time. As soon as we put on our clothes, we went to a restaurant nearby to have lunch.

      In the morning on the next day, we were waken up by a birdcall. I looked out of the window, seeing the ground was wet, and it must have rained last night. The air was very fresh outside, so four of us decided to get some fresh air. At 9 am, the driver picked us up and we were loath to leave longshen, one of the famous scenic areas of China.

      After the next 3 hours’ drive, we arrived at Guilin. Having had lunch, we began visiting the scenic spot, Two Rivers and Four Lakes, by sightseeing ship. Two rivers include Lijiang River and Peach Blossom River and four lakes the RongHu Lake, SanHu Lake, GuiHu Lake, and MuLong Lake. During the sightseeing tour of the one and half hour, we were able to have a good view of the beautiful scenic spots of Guilin, such as Elephant Trunk Hill, Diecai Hill, Fubo Hill and so on. Solitary Beauty Peak, a historical and cultural attraction in the scenic area of Jingjiang Princes City witnessed the change of Guilin history. What was excited is that we four people climbed it up.

      Visiting Lijiang scenery on Lijiang River is a highlight. We were actually wondering whether we should do that by bamboo raft or by cruise ship. Some of the advantages of visiting Lijiang landscapes by bamboo raft is that we would be able to see the most beautiful scenery of Lijiang River on its both banks, and also that we were allowed to have some food on the bamboo raft we brought, as we enjoyed its scenery without being disturbed. So we made our decision to take bamboo raft to visit Lijiang River.

      When night fell, our tour guide showed us to a restaurant where there are dishes like bamboo chicken, bamboo rice, and fish cooked in the casserole. Bamboo chicken tasted very delicious, cooked with slow fire in bamboo tubes, and fish also tasted good. After dinner, we went back to our hotels to get some sleep. This trip to Guilin ended like that.

      If you like, you can go travel in China to visit those enchanting landscapes by yourself.

  • The Best Holiday Destination- The Best Holiday Destination- New York (Beach Adventure)

    • From: steveven
    • Description:

       


      Every summer season, New York City’s beaches are a favorite recreation destination. The Health Department provides the latest water quality information to ensure that your trip to the beach will be a safe and healthy one.

      Five Awesome New York Beaches:

      Rockaway Beach: Yeah, yeah, yeah…I just told you I grew up here. But that does not mean Rockaway Beach is not great. Once considered the summer getaway destination for the rich and famous in the early 20th century, the Rockaway lost most of those wealthy visitors when they packed up and moved to the Hamptons to get even further away from Manhattan (and not so rich people) for a long weekend.

      Long Beach: At this not-too-crowded beach just a few blocks from the LIRR, boardwalk vendors rent out umbrellas ($12) and lounge chairs ($8 each), so you don’t have to lug them from home.

      Orchard Beach:
      The crescent-shaped beach is only 1.1 miles long and is entirely man-made, with minimal waves.

      Robert Moses Beach This Long Island state park is a little farther out, but it might be worth the extra travel time if Jones is too crowded for you—and if you have a car (the easiest way to get here). Be forewarned that the easternmost stretch, called Field 5 is clothing-optional.

      Manhattan Beach
      Manhattan Beach may seem like a bit of a paradox, considering that the sandy areas are bordered by a concrete promenade, but the atmosphere is calm and quiet: a more peaceful alternative to neighboring Coney Island.
