  • HARD ROCK HOTEL PALM SPRINGS C HARD ROCK HOTEL PALM SPRINGS CANCELS “CONFIRMED” ROOM RESERVATIONS

    • From: gregaveryt
    • Description:

      I booked a reservation online for the Hard Rock Hotel Palm Springs October 27th, 2013. My reservations were for April 10th-14th, 2014. This is the weekend of the Coachella Music Festival where over 85,000 people flood the area and rooms become difficult to find – which I why I booked it half a year in advance for a rate of 294.75 a night. 50 days before the booking, I received a letter in the mail saying my rooms were cancelled due to a “technical error.” After speaking with some of the front desk employees, I was given several excuses for the cancellation including a “corporate buy-out  that was not open to the public.” Interesting that on the Coachella webiste they were offering rooms for the Hard Rock for much higher prices during the same dates. Rooms are now difficult to find, and the rates have increased by almost 300% in several cases. Hard Rock refuses to acknowledge my confirmations or resolve the matter. I firmly believe Hard Rock cancelled my room to sell to other parties for a higher rate.  Understand that if you have plane tickets booked, and reservations made, you may not have a room waiting for you at the Hard Rock Palm Springs.  The General Manager, Hector, still hasn’t returned my call and is ignoring the situation.

  • Turin, Italy Turin, Italy

    • From: SaraElizabethTravels
    • Description:

      torino.jpg

      When arriving by plane to Turin, you’ll be landing at the Aeroporto di Torino. Unless you want to take a cab(which would cost about 30-40 euros), the SADAM bus(about 7 euros one-way) is the cheapest way to get to the city center. If you want the get to the center of the city, you’ll get off at the Porta Nuova Railway Station. I studied abroad in Turin for 4 months, so I was very aware of the metro, train and bus schedules. If you plan on staying in Turin for a week or more, it may be smart to get a settimanale(weekly) or mensile(monthly) metro/bus ticket. You can pick one of those up at any Tabaccheria(tobbaco shop), but be mindful, sometimes they don’t carry them. So remember to ask if they know the closest place that sells them. Also, if you find an information booth, get a map! I still used one after months of living there.

            Now in Turin, there are many cafes, pizza places, kebabs, and other various food places. The first pizza place I went to was Primaepoi which is on Via Giovanni Battista Viotti, near Via Roma. This was the first thing I ate when I arrived to Turin and was surprised. The pizza was so fresh, but not in a greasy cheesy way. Everything was perfect, from the vegetables to the crust. Be prepared to eat what you get, because it you ask for a “to go” box, you will get looks from the waiter and everyone around you. “To Go” is a very American thing and you won’t find many places that do it. On that note, I would have to say that my favorite cafe(with “to go” cups) while I was in Turin, was definitely Busters Coffee on Via Cesare Battisti. Before we had wifi in the apartment, I would go there to do my work, blog and get ahold of family and friends through Skype. I would always get a chuckle, cause they would have signs saying “American breakfast/coffee” and as I read it, it reminded me how much more we eat then Europeans do. They would make amazing drinks and I was a fan on their shakes/smoothies. I would be so tempted to get a pastry, because they display it so well! My favorite kebab place was the Casa Del Kebab 12which is across the street from the 8 Gallery Lingotto. I know you didn’t go to Italy to go to the mall, but trust me, you’ll want to check it out. I still regret not buying more from these stores while I was there, because the fashion there is about 2yrs ahead of the US stores. My favorite stores were Cache Cache & Tally Weijl. When I needed groceries(that I couldn’t get at the outside marketplace), I would go to Pam, which was in the mall, but you had to go outside to enter the store. I would always find some awesome deals on poultry, fish and dairy there. While you’re in the area, you should cross the street to experience Eataly. From wheels of cheese to barrels of wine, it was a true Italian experience in one store. I know there are stores in the US now, but I would describe it as the Italian version of Wegmans. Now on the outside of the mall, if you walk towards the parking lot in the back, you’ll be able to see the Olympic Arch of Turin(bottom right corner of the photos). If you have time to cross the bridge, do it. It’s so interesting knowing that amazing athletes walked this bridge and many couples have left their mark on locks on the chain fences. I didn’t have my camera with me when I went over the bridge, but I won’t lie, I was a tad scared. The Olympic village was a ghost town. There was graffiti on the buildings and whenever the wind hit certain parts of the buildings/walkways, it just reminded you of a horror movie. I wish we could find uses to the old Olympic villages, instead of leaving them there to deteriorate. 

            While in Turin, you need to visit Porta Palazzo. If you’re walking down Via Settembre, it’s a straight shot to it. When I lived there I was across the street from a store called Tiger. I think that’s where all my money went towards honestly! It’s just a cute store that’s filled with the most random of things. You could get large packets of loose leaf teas, luggage tags/flying items, cute little toys/games, toiletries, cards, spices, candles, a bottle of champagne and etc. Still hoping we get them in the US soon! So continuing, on you’re way down the street, you’ll go past the busy and store-filled Via Giuseppe Garibaldi. On that street, you can find stores like Promod, Nike, L’Occitane Provence and an amazing gelato place called GROM. Further down, you’ll find yourself in an open space with a church to your right. If you have time, you must visit the Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist. If you haven’t heard about the Holy Shroud, you need to read up and go inside! There’s a replica of the shroud inside the church, but every 5 years or so they display the real one to the public. Continuing down the road, to the left you’ll see a dog park. This was my favorite part of going to the marketplace, because every time I missed my dogs, I would just walk to the park and the dogs would attack me with kisses! Once you hit the end of the grassy park, you turn left and walk down the street until you walk into the market. Now mind you, be very careful about your wallet or purse. There are gypsies and pick-pockets everywhere and there is barely any space for you to walk since it’s so busy. When you first walk in, there’s a walkway near the front where I would get the best prices for onions, carrots & potatoes(1 Euro for 2-3 kilos). Of course I will admit it, girls, if you smile & flirt with the sellers, you get more! Every time I went down to this guy’s booth, he would remember me and automatically knew what I wanted, put it in 2 bags, and gave me a great deal. Remember, you have to go through the whole thing to find the best prices for food. There was also a pizza booth and pastry booth that I went to every other week and both of those people spoke a bit of English. Not going to lie, the pastries were my favorite part! You had to make sure to get there early or all the best ones would be gone. I also bought a few scarves down at the market and still to this day get compliments on them! Now, the marketplace is not open on Sunday mornings because it turns into one big garage sale. From bikes to american dollars, there is a bunch of random stuff for sale. Most of the people here don’t speak Italian, so it’s harder to communicate with them. I was actually able to talk a guy down and bought a twin reflex camera for a good price. The coolest part is that the camera says on the side that it was made in the USSR. It’s my favorite film camera to date!

            Now for the art/music fanatics, you have a good amount of choices. Just walking down the streets, mainly near the piazzas(squares), you’ll hear street musicians and see street entertainers. If you’re interested in seeing some history, you should check out the Museo Egizio(Egypt Museum), Armeria Reale(Royal Armoury), Museo di Antichità(Antiques Museum) & Palazzo Reale di Torino(The Royal Palace of Turin). While I was there, I was able to see a Henri Cartier-Bresson gallery show at thePalazzo Reale. As a photographer, it was a once in a lifetime event(Especially since I got to go to a da Vinci show outside of Turin and saw his original sketches/artwork!). Another museum you need to go to it the Museo Nazionale del Cinema(The National Cinema Museum), which is inside the Mole Antonelliana. Inside you’ll see props, clips from movies, costumes and so on. I think the cutest part is the viewing room that has the multiple toilets as the seating area. At the bottom level, there’s an lift that brings you all the way up to the top of the Mole. It’s scary as heck if you’re afraid of heights, because the lift is transparent, so if you’re scared of height, DO NOT LOOK DOWN! When you exit the lift, you’ll get a 360° view of the city and the Alps. Honestly, it’s totally worth the money, because it was so memorable! The photos I took while up there were unreal. For the music buffs, if you’re around the area during a concert or performance, you should go see one at the Teatro Regio diTorino or the Orchestra Filarmonica di Torino. If you’re there around the end of April/beginning of May, you should check out the Torino Jazz Festival. I got to see Dionne Warwick and she was amazing! Another event to go to(and you would have to look into it) is the Chocolate Festival. All I can say is “Chocolate…..sooooo much chocolate!”. I believe it was near the end of February, but don’t quote me on that. I spent a lot of money on sweets, but there are also lots of freebies! It is truly a chocolate lover’s dream getaway. 

            I hope this helped a bit. I know Turin isn’t as fancy and popular as Florence, Milan or Rome….but it’s worth the trip! If you want more suggestions, you should check out Lonely Planet.com, since that’s how I survived Italy. I would read their book about Italy almost every single night!

  • Some Must- Do Activities On Yo Some Must- Do Activities On Your Trip To Kerala

    • From: surajkulkarnih
    • Description:

      So it's that time of the year again when you've packed your bags and are raring to go and find yourself heading to God's Own Country – Kerala. Rejoice! For you are now at one of the most exotic travel destinations in the world.

      There's a lot just waiting to be discovered here, what with a plethora of fun activities vying for your attention to choose from - ranging from mystic houseboat rides to the blissful Ayurveda massages for calming your excited nerves to even experiencing the thrill a snake boat race. Read on to know more about how you can make your visit to Kerala a memorable one and what you can do to ensure that when you get old, you have many exciting tales to tell your grandchildren about this sojourn:

      Stay on a houseboat: I bet you've heard a lot about these houseboats already and once you're away from the concrete jungle and the hustle and bustle of city life, you should make the most of it. Connect with nature and romanticize the wilderness with your stay in the backwaters of Allepey, Allapuzha or Kumarakom on a luxurious houseboat. Of course, you always have the option of staying in a hotel, but where's the novelty in that? In case, a long stay on unchartered waters is not your cup of tea, don't lose hope. You can try going for a backwater cruise on the Vembanand lake, which is the largest lake in Kerala and also a popular picnic spot and check out the flora and fauna there. Sounds like good fun! The best time for this activity would be during winters.

      Cheer at a snake boat race: Onam is the most popular festival in Kerala and is celebrated with sheer pomp and joy each year in the months of August-September. The whole of Kerala comes alive in a festive fervor for 4 days with music and dance, decorating houses, Onam Sadya (feast) and even boat racing. The boat race is a very integral and important aspect of Onam wherein about 100 oarsmen row huge and beautifully decorated snake boats and men and women celebrate by cheering the snake boats skim through the water. I'm sure you can't wait to be part of this festivity. Be there, do it!

      Bring out the adventurer in you: If you thought Kerala was only about houseboats and boat races, think again. On your visit to the beautiful hill station Munnar, trying your hand at paragliding is an absolute must. And don't worry, you don't need to be trained for it. Glide over the magnificent hills of Munnar with the help of an instructor. Sounds too good to be true, doesn't it? Well, it's true!

      Embrace Ayurveda: Give your tired mind and body a new lease of life with the famous Ayurveda massage therapies that are ever so popular with tourists visiting Kerala. Just lie down and relax and let the experts do the rest for you. Bring harmony to your soul and experience the soothing herbal massages that rid you of your stress and ailments. There are many centers and spas all over Kerala which offer this facility with packages at competitive rates. So go ahead, pick a package of your preference and feel the magic as it happens. Monsoons are considered to be the best time to indulge in Ayurvedic therapies in Kerala.

      Get enthralled by folk art: Kathakali, Mohiniyattam, Thullal, Oppana, Margamkali are just some of the forms of classical folk dances performed in Kerala. Each dance form is unique and has a story and a style of its own. Some of these dance forms have become popular worldwide, but what better place to witness an enthralling dance performance than in the place of its origin!

      A Fall isn't always a bad thing: Case in point being the beautiful Athirapally waterfalls. This place could well be dubbed as India's Niagara Falls as these 80 feet high falls are sure to give you an adrenaline rush. The best time to visit here would be in the monsoons and we recommend that you trek your way up and down the falls. The soothing sounds of the cascading waterfalls and witnessing the huge mass of water coming crashing down is something that only a lucky few get to experience in their lifetime. So make sure that you, too, are that lucky one!

      Wild ambitions: Get in touch with your wild side at the Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary with a jungle safari or go bamboo-rafting on the Periyar lake. You could also energize yourself with a visit to the countryside by taking a canoe ride across the serpentine canals in the quaint villages of Kerala. (For more information, check out a good resource on the place like http://irisholidays.com/.)

      Mortal Combat: Regarded as one of the most ancient and scientific forms of martial arts in the the world, Kalaripayattu is still practiced in Kerala. It is supposed to be one of the important aspects of an Ayurvedic physical treatment called Kalarichikitsa. Some of the moves of this form of combat are sure to leave you astounded and amazed. So make sure you don't miss witnessing this celebrated form of martial arts.

      History's mysteries: Indulge in some intellectual fact finding with a visit to Kerala's St. Angelo Fort, Fort Kochi, Bekal Fort, Edakkal Caves, Mattancherry Palace, Jew Street, Ariyannur Umbrellas among other attractions. All these places will take you back in time and tickle your imagination by giving you a taste of how things used to be.

      Beaches: Drown your stress and sorrows in the picturesque beaches – be it the scenic Varkala beach or the Kovalam beach (don't miss the Lighthouse here), the mesmerizing Beypore beach, the ancient Ezhimala beach or the serene Bekal beach. Lose yourself in the sun and the sand on the sunkissed beaches of Kerala.

      Eat, Drink and Be Merry:If you are one of those people who live to eat, then your love for food will only increase as you relish Kerala's mouthwatering cuisine. Their food items are enriching with some authentic flavors of the South. Coconut is a favorite additive here and is added to most of the food preparations be it their vegetarian or non-vegetarian meals. 'Toddy'- a drink made of liquor and water with sugar and spices is a popular beverage in the rural areas and a Kerala specialty. Do try!

       

      There's something for everyone at Kerala. So, what are you waiting for? Get your checklist of these activities ready and tick away while you live it up at this Southern Paradise of India!!!

  • SUNRISE OVER HALONG BAY SUNRISE OVER HALONG BAY

    • From: activetravelasia
    • Description:
      Written by Jenmodelm
      We all waited and waited for the sun to rise over the giant rock mountains. It was nearly 6:30am before the sun peaked over the rocks.It was a glorious magnificent sunrise.
      Sunrise from the boat…a lovely sight.

       Breakfast was served shortly after, it was an Early start to the day. I couldn’t wait for coffee.Each got one fried egg and as much dry white toast as we wanted.

      After breakfast we had to be checked out of our rooms by 9am so the boat men could get ready for the next tour. We were stopping by the floating village. We were greeted by the sound of blasting techno dance club type music coming from somebody’s shack. It was so odd. We got in groups of four and ladies came in small wooden row boats to take us around the small village of 300 people; the biggest floating village in halong bay. They even had a little floating primary school. Most parents don’t want their children to go to the city to get more education because it costs money and they want them to stay and hell fish.
      The wooden houses floated on large ice chest sized styrofoam or big blue plastic tanks the size of a beer keg. Few people smiled or waved. I think there’s mixed feelings of tourists snapping away photos and strolling through their little village. They have to get at least one tour group a day– minimum. It’s low season here I’m Vietnam too. Our tour guide also said some local people are not so thrilled about the tourists visiting and have been doing so for the last sight years now. The people moved from the mainland to the floating villages because there is more fish available out in the open waters, they don’t have to pay taxes and they prefer the lifestyle.
      After seeing the floating village we had two and a half hours back to the mainland. While most people took refuge in the shade I relaxed on the Sundeck soaking in the suns rays and view. Even though our boat went very slow and the scenery was similar I enjoyed soaking as much of it in as I could. I was so relaxed I failed to put sunscreen on my tummy.

      Once back on the mainland we had a quick transfer to our ethnic travel van and an hour drive north towards the Chinese border. We would depart from another Fishing port to our next destination. A small long skinny island with essentially no tourists but ourselves.We had seafood lunch on the boat. Always so good.
      A local rows a boat in the bay. Many locals still live and work on the water in the bay.
      We were able to kayak one more time, although this time much less impressive than the first. There were no large rock formations or caves to go under.Instead it seemed we were kayaking in a big lake. It was strange to think it was still actually the ocean. We went for a quick swim and jumped off the boat being careful not to get stung by any jellyfish.
      Kayaking is a great way to get up close.
      The boat continued on for another hour and we sat on the roof of the boat watching the sun set. It was glorious. The sun was just a bright orange ball. Like a Japanese sun in Vietnam. It was really stunning.We arrived at the pier and it was nearly dark. Two tuk tuk scooters picked us up to our homestay.
      Sunset in the bay left a golden glow. A great reason to do an overnight junk boat.
      I was surprised to get my own room. Unlike the homestays in sapa where mattresses are set side by side, our tour guide said that ethnic travel paid for this family’s Home to be extended into.More of a guesthouse. They wouldn’t make any Money for three years to pay off the house,Thereafter they would make money from it. The family is retired, so they seemed happy to be doing it.
      Dinner was served at 7 and we helped to make fresh spring rolls with thin rice paper. Afterwards they were fried and ever so fresh and hot. Soo good! I also noticed that our leftover rice from lunch was being dried on the roof of the boat. They used it to make this amazing popcorn- tasting dried rice with corn. Never had anything like it.
      After one beer at dinner and a full belly I was sapped. I called bed time at 9. Took a shower and Crashed just a little before 10.
      ACTIVETRAVEL ASIA would like to recommend  Kayaking Halong Bay tour. Halong Bay, located in the Gulf of Tonkin, covers an area of 1500 square km. with more than a thousand limestone peaks soaring from its crystalline emerald water. The calm sea provides an ideal location for sea kayaking as we paddle through a maze of islets amid dramatic natural scenery. With our modern kayaking equipment, we are able to maximize on speed and maneuverability as we explore the open sea and the many hidden lagoons and stalagmite caves that are difficult to access by any other means. After a day of paddling we unwind on our boat and enjoy dinner. This tour offers longer kayaking expedition of Halong Bay. We will paddle amongst islets, visit hidden caves, lagoons, unspoiled beaches, floating fishing village and talk with local fishman.

      • Amazing limestone formations
      • Inclusive junk for overnight
      • Beautiful and different kayaking route

      Just outside of Clarksdale, MS, the Shack Up Inn is not your normal motel. My wife and I recently stayed here and it is obviously a very funky place. Refurbished on the interior with vintage (old) items the shacks are real shacks largely brought onto the property. The rooms are comfortable and clean and if you are staying in the area, many have kitchens.

      They often have music in the bar area but unfortunately not when we were there.

    • From: gmaso
    • Description:

      Beale Street in Memphis is a more civilized Bourbon St. This in part due to a heavy police presence and they card everyone going into Beale St. on the week-ends.But lots of music all along the street. Some good restaurants (lots of BBQ) and lots of bars.

      BB King and Jerry Lee Louis among other music legends have their own clubs in a three block expanse.

      If you like blues, rock, rock-abilly, or country music it's well worth a visit.

      It was really a great experience to go on a company tour in Los Angeles. Our company had hired an Extreme H2 Hummer limo having capacity of 20-24 people. An entire way, we enjoyed a lot with music, soft drinks. Highest quality 4500 Watt Stereo System was really amazing. And chauffeur was very friendly with us and had great knowledge about that area.
