      The Welsh wizard became the world’s most expensive player after Real Madrid snapped him up from Spurs in an eye-watering £86m deal last year on the back of an impressive campaign. predator lz sambaBale was English football’s top performer last term, with his 26 goals in all competitions almost enough to cap a positive season at White Hart Lane with Champions League qualification. After a summer of transfer uncertainty Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy eventually accepted Real’s offer for the 24-year-old, replacing him with a series of stars from across Europe in a £110m spend. Few of these big buys have settled well, and Sherwood – who replaced Andre Villas-Boas over the winter – has been unable to keep the Londoners in the battle for Champions League qualification. adidas samba 2014 Bale netted a dramatic late winner in the Copa de Rey final against Barcelona in midweek, and the now Spurs coach feels that if the club still had him they would be battling for English football’s top prize: “We saw what he did last year: 21 goals and nine assists. He scored the winner in eight games.” He is quoted by Sky Sports. “We could do with that now, by the way. If you put those points that he accumulated for us on top of what we have got we would probably be challenging for the title.” internationaevencourage Sherwood then went on to lament the loss of Luka Modric a few seasons ago – the Croatian now also plays for Real: “The two best players on the pitch (in the Copa del Rey final) were Gareth Bale and Luka Modric and that says everything.” come from http://www.footballfancast.com/

  • Brazil this Summer: FIFA World Brazil this Summer: FIFA World Cup 2014

    • From: TrippinTammy
    • Description:

      FIFA Brazil ExcitementNothing more exciting is scheduled for this summer than FIFA World Cup 2014 in Brazil. Sports fans the world over will be making their way to Brazil for the international men's football (soccer to those in the United States!) tournament that is scheduled from June 12 to July 13, 2014. 

      World Cup has a long history; this year marks the 20th FIFA World Cup, with the first World Cup being in Argentina in 1930. It has been held every four years since then, with the exception of 1942 and 1946 due to World War II. In other words, World Cup is on par with the Olympics. 

      FIFA stands for Fédération Internationale de Football Association, which oversees the sport. The tournament consists of 32 teams competing at venues within the host nation; this is the World Cup Finals and is the culmination of the previous three years of play and qualification. Currently, the champion is Spain. They won the tournament in South Africa in 2010 and are favored to win.  

      This is just the second time that Brazil was chosen to host the competition. FIFA chose Brazil after deciding that the tournament should be in South America. The last time the tournament was held in South America was in Argentina in 1978; the last time in Brazil was 1950. 

      There will be 64 matches played in twelve cities across Brazil in new or totally renewed stadiums. These matches will include all of the world champion teams since the World Cup began in 1930---Italy, Germany, Uruguay, England, France, Argentina, Spain and Brazil. 

      Brazil has a storied World Cup history as well, with five championships and once fielding the most well-known football player worldwide to ever play the game--Pele, who made 77 goals in just 92 appearances, Brazil's all-time leading scorer, who made a name for himself by making the winning game against its country's rival Argentina at the age of 16. Maracana stadium

      Awesome way to spend a week, or a whole month, in Brazil! My plans are to spend a week in Brazil seeing some of the sights, and I have already scored some tickets for myself and my brother and will be in the stands for the Spain vs. the Netherlands match on June 13 in Salvador! 

      I also got a great tip about transportation from a friend of mine who has spend lots of time in Brazil going to conferences. She said the taxi drivers sometimes scam tourists and it was safer to set up transfers online with Brazil Airport Transfers. She even said her plane was hours late and the driver was still waiting for her with a sign. That sounds like great service!

  • 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.

      When I saw Budget Travel's vote for favorite small town of America, I immediately thought of my 2011 visit to Fort Scott Kansas. Our family was making a cross-country trek from Michigan to California and we happened to stop in Fort Scott for a few days to relax and recharge for the drive ahead. We ended up staying for three days and enjoyed every minutes. One of the most highly recommended small towns in America.
      There are about 8000 residents in Fort Scott but the town played an important part of the history of setting the Western United States. There are several interesting sites in and near Fort Scott including venues of historical, cultural and environmental interest. After our visit, we felt as though we'd seen some real Americana.  
      Fort Scott Fort and the National Cemetery
      Fort Scott played an important role in the settlement of the West. It was built in 1842 as an outpost for troops who enforced the uneasy peace between the settlers and the Osage Indians. Westbound travelers could fill up on provisions at the fort before they set out on their journey along the Santa Fe Trail. As the Civil War loomed the troops tried to separate the pro-slave and anti-slave activists in the newly-formed state of Kansas. When the war did break out Fort Scott became a Quartermaster's Supply Deposit, as well as the training base of the First Kansas Colored Infantry -- a unit that took part in multiple battles and suffered more casualties than any other Kansas regiment. The Fort Scott National Historic Site, operated by the National Parks Service, offers a view into the frontier days including the original fort's buildings. Guided tours are offered twice daily (11:00a.m. and 13:00pm.) during the summer months by costumed guides who provide a full explanation of the type of life the early soldiers and residents of Fort Scott experienced.  The fort is located south of I54 on Market Street near the city center. (620) 223-0310  
      Abraham Lincoln inaugurated the Fort Scott National Cemetery as a military cemetery in 1865 when it was already serving as the final resting place of hundreds of Union and Confederate soldiers as well as for troops that had been killed during the pre-Civil War period. After its establishment as a National Cemetery the remains of other soldiers who had been buried throughout Kansas and Missouri were brought to the Fort Scott cemetery for reinternment. These included black Union soldiers of the First Colored Infantry. In the northeast corner of the cemetery visitors can see memorial markers which honor soldiers whose remains were not recovered or identified including WWII flight crews.
      Gordon Parks Museum
      Gordon Parks was born and raised in Fort Scott. Many people remember him as the director of the movie "Shaft" but before his movie career he was a recognized photographer whose work was featured in a number of photoessays for well-known newspapers and magazines, including for Life Magazine. Parks photographed celebrities and fashion models but his best-known works showcased the black experience of the South in the pre-Civil War era. The Gordon Parks Museum is located in Fort Scott. Many of Parks' photos, which brought the reality of Southern racism and black poverty to the public conscious, are exhibited in the museum. The Gordon Parks Museum is situated in the Mercy Health Center, located at the southern edge of Fort Scott just off US Highway 69. Entrance is free. The museum is open daily from 7:00a.m. to 8:00p.m.   620-223-7036
      Rock Creek Lake Waterfalls
      The Rock Creek Lake Waterfalls offer a quiet step into nature. Located just three miles West of Fort Scott, travelers can either hike to the waterfalls from Fort Scott or drive there and leave their car in the park's parking lot that's located on the side of the road. There's a short trail down to the waterfalls from the park where first one, and then a little further on two more, waterfalls spill off from the Rock Creek Lake into the Marmaton River.  When the water is low it's possible to walk across the stream at the bottom waterfall. To access the Rock Creek Waterfalls park, drive out of Fort Scott on 19th Street which soon changes to "Kansas Road" and then again to "195th Street." The park's parking lot is at the north edge of Rock Creek Lake.  Cross the bridge over the dam to reach the waterfalls.
      Lowell Milken Center
      The Lowell Milken Center was established in 2007 as an educational institution which is dedicated to promoting high level scholastic achievements in America's schools. The Center was established when two educators, Norman Conrad and Lowell Milken, decided to collaborate on a concept that would encourage students to create well-researched, high-quality research projects about unsung heroes -- people who had acted in an exceptional manner to benefit mankind but whose efforts had not been recognized. The Center is located on Fort Scott's Main Street. Featured unsung hero subjects include journalists, environmentalists, humanitarians and others.  (620) 223-9991 
      Fort Scott's Good Old Days
      We happened to visit Fort Scott during their annual three-day "Good Old Days" festival which takes place over the course of one weekend every June. The Festival brings fun and good cheer to the town with a crafts fair, rides, a Dock Dogs competition (people bring their dogs and encourage the dogs to jump off a dock into a pool of water as they try to catch a toy in the air.  The dog that jumps the farthest, wins), street dances, carnival food and drinks, live entertainment and more.

  • Byodo In Temple – The Perfect Byodo In Temple – The Perfect Place to Spend a Day in Serenity at Oahu

    • From: CatherineWatson
    • Description:

       

      byodo in templeLast month I went to the Hawaiian Island Oahu with a couple of my friends and it was one of my best summer vacations ever. Our Oahu trip started with a lot of activity. We toured the historic Pearl Harbor, tried our hands at snorkeling in North shore and also visited the Polynesian Culture Center which provided us a deeper insight into Polynesian culture. It was educational and entertaining at the same time.

       

      After all the excitement and activities, we wanted to experience something different, something to pacify our soul and mind in Hawaii. Our friendly chauffeur of Hawaii Taxi and Shuttle Service suggested us to visit Byodo-In Temple, situated at the foot of Koolau Mountain in the Valley of the Temples Memorial Park. We googled it to get more information. When we found out that the temple had been featured in ABC’s Emmy Award Winning drama series LOST, as the home of Korean woman Sun’s father, our excitement just doubled. We could not hold ourselves and we visited Byodo-In the very next day.

       

      Some highlights of our Byodo-In Temple visit:

       

      Ringing the Bon-Sho

      Bon- shoAfter a drive through a cemetery, we reached the premises of the temple. As soon as we set foot inside the area of the temple, we could not help but ring the massive three-ton brass bell called Bon-sho. Turns out, apparently, it is customary to ring the bell before entering the temple to purify your mind off of evil spirits. We didn’t know that.

      Close to the bell there was a small donation box where we donated few pennies. Our small effort in contributing to the temple, which in fact helps maintain its grandeur.

       

      Capturing the beauty of Byodo In Temple:

      BEAUTIFUL SCENERY OF BYODO IN TEMPLEByodo-In is truly a hidden gem of Oahu tucked away behind the valley of temples cemetery. The landscaped grounds, postcard perfect scenes and landmarks under the deep lush green hills are so awe inspiring that we could not resist ourselves and took hundreds of photographs. It was our way of trying to capture a bit of the peacefulness and natural beauty that the temple offers.

       

      Praying to the Amida Buddha

      Amida BuddhaThe main attraction of the temple is 9 feet tall, gold lacquer painted, wood carved statue of Amida/Lotus Buddha inside the Phoenix hall. This big statue is surrounded by a series of other small statues of Boddhisattvas (the enlightened beings).

      We had to take off our shoes in order to enter the hall where devotees were praying in front of the statue. They were offering flowers and burning incense to the Amida Buddha. I also got a chance to offer some flowers to the amazingly peaceful looking Amida Buddha.

       

      Enjoying with the Nature’s Critters:

      WILD LIFE OF BYODO IN TEMPLEIn the temple premises, we saw peacocks and black swans roaming in the garden grounds and turtles lounging beside the pond. The ponds of temple are filled with the Japanese fish, Koi. We purchased some fish food from the gift shop and fed them. The gift shop also had some cool Japanese souvenir which I wanted to buy but couldn’t afford it.

       

       

      After wandering around the temple for an hour, we rested in a Meditation House. The atmosphere was so serene that I could literally feel my inner soul. I have seriously never felt so peaceful in my entire life. I wanted to stay there for the whole day but my friends did not let me do that.


      Byodo-In is a perfect spiritual destination to spend a peaceful day, soaking in nature away from the bustling areas of Oahu. Parking is free and it only cost $3 to explore this hidden gem. So, don’t forget to visit this place on your Oahu tour. You will simply find inner peace here.

  • Three reasons why Japan's Izu Three reasons why Japan's Izu Peninsula is the perfect budget getaway

    • From: ataylor0307
    • Description:

      Tokyo in the summertime is surprisingly humid, for a non-tropical region. If you plan to go outside, even to make a dash from your hotel to the train station, in the name of all that is holy don’t leave without a rag or you’ll regret it. Nothing says summer fun like blinking the burning sweat out of your eyes.

      Don’t worry, relief can be found not north, but just a couple hours west, on the Izu Peninsula. If you’re in the Tokyo area, I highly recommend taking a detour there for a couple of days. It’s still hot, but not as humid, and the sea is only a few steps away. In fact one of my best memories of living as an expat in Japan is packing up and taking over a beautiful, Japanese style hostel in the area with a group of friends.

      K’s House Ito OnsenK's House Ito Onsen

      K’s house is a popular hostel chain in Japan. I’ve been to a few, but none have left their mark on me like the one in Ito. Though modern, the interior retains a traditional Japanese aesthetic. Rooms floored in tatami are hidden away by sliding paper screens. A path of cool, smooth stones leads to the kitchen and common room. And best of all, the hostel has its own public and private onsen (hot springs). There’s nothing like taking a long soak in the hot spring after a day at the beach. The feeling of water just this side of boiling on my aching muscles is bliss, and I always come out feeling like putty. The next stop is the common room, which has a big sliding door opening onto a terrace, a peaceful view of the river right below the hostel, and green hills in the distance. Sitting out there after the hot spring, with the sound of the crickets and the breeze on my still steaming skin, is the closest I’ve ever gotten to Zen.

      This place gives the impression of staying at a traditional and expensive Japanese Inn at less than half the price: about $30 USD for a bed in the dorm, or up to $60 USD for a private room ensuite room.

      Shirahama BeachShirahama Beach

      Shirahama beach in Shimoda is a little bit of a journey from Ito, but worth the trip. Besides, the view from the train is gorgeous, and the ride will cost you around $15 USD one way. About an hour long train ride beside lush, green mountains, palm-tree lined roads and sparkling blue sea leads to Izukyu Shimoda station, on the Izukyu line.  From there the bus, which is about $3.50 USD, goes straight to the beach. There’s also a grocery store five minutes’ walk from the station, perfect for getting cheap snacks.   

      Shirahama beach is popular, and it’s easy to see why. In summer the water is warm and clear, with soft rolling waves. The sky is a luminous blue not marred, but enhanced by the white clouds trailing across it. The scenery is as beautiful as any beach in the Caribbean, but at the edge of the beach is a slight cliff. A rocky path leads to the summit and there sits a Shinto shrine, fronted by a red torii, or gate, which stands aloof and proud as if to say, remember, this is Japan.

      Ito Eats

      Within 10 minutes’ walk of the station is a shopping arcade with a few restaurants, including some Izakaya—traditional Japanese restaurants serving many appetizers and cocktails. Izu, so close to the sea, has some of the freshest and tastiest sushi and sashimi you’ll eat in all Japan. It melts in your mouth, and the restaurants in the area serve it up with delicious miso soup, fluffy rice and pickled vegetables. There are also a variety of other foods. The most daring of us tried basashi—raw horse meat. I really like the fried crocodile. Dinner and drinks is no more than $30 USD a person, and often much less, making Ito, and a stay at K’s Hostel, one of my favorite budget getaways.

  • Ultimate Road Trip: Vietnam's Ultimate Road Trip: Vietnam's Northern Loop

    • From: activetravelasia
    • Description:
      Written by Adam Hodge 
      Anyone who has been to this country (and even some of those who haven't) will no doubt be skeptical about the words "Vietnam" and "road trip" in the same sentence. It's true: In a city like Hanoi, the traffic can make you freeze up like an opossum. But outside of the cities, where vehicles are few and far between, the scenery is unforgettable, the culture vibrant, and the road trip experience unparalleled.
      Driving the legendary Northwest Loop is the best way to get a glimpse of the rural side of a country in the throes of relentless, voracious development. In the less-visited north, you can explore the Vietnam of rice terraces, karst formations draped in verdant jungle, purple mountains, and thundering waterfalls.
      START IN HANOI

       
      Hanoi
      The Northwest Loop begins in Hanoi. If you're going to tackle this route in a car or truck, it's best to get a 4WD. Most of the route is sealed, but heavy rains can occasionally wash small rocks and debris onto the road in the mountains. And speaking of rain, since you're in the mountains all bets are off when it comes to the weather. It's true that Vietnam's dry season runs from October until April, but if you try this during "rainy" season in the summer months you can still get away with it. And remember, as you get higher up, the temperature will drop, so you may use both the A/C and the heater in the same trip.
      But be warned, the small twisty roads were drawn into the hills for the pleasure (and ease) of two-wheeled travel. The trip can be done on a 125 cc semi-automatic "motoscooter," which are incredibly easy for even non-riders to get a handle on quickly. You can rent one in Hanoi for less than $10 a day from an outfitter like Flamingo Travel, who provides helpful English-language service. Flamingo also provides guided tours for those who don't want to tackle the country alone.

      HIT THE OPEN ROAD

      After you've explored Hanoi's bustling Old Quarter (the Essence Hanoi is a great boutique hotel option) and filled up on Hanoi's legendary street food, it's time to brave the traffic on the highway from hell out of the city. This is a straight-shot, get-it-over-with drive to the first stopover. Look on the bright side: You will never again complain about traffic back home. Just under 30 miles southwest of Hanoi on Highway 6, you'll have the chance to turn left onto a skinny two-lane secondary road. Take it! This is what you've come for. The road weaves its way through rice terraces, bypassing the truck-heavy main drag. You'll meet up with H6 again soon enough, which you'll take the rest of the way to Mai Chau.
      Motorcycling Mai Chau
      Once in Mai Chau, take a day or two to explore the surrounding countryside, which is home to many of the White Tai ethnic minority. The lush, rice paddy-filled valley is a world away from the noise of Hanoi, the horns and hawker shouts replaced with gurgling irrigation rustling leaves. Here you'll find one of the best accommodation options in northern Vietnam: the terrific Mai Chau Lodge.
      When you leave Mai Chau, you will follow weaving valley roads and mountain switchbacks up H6 to Son La. The journey is not far, but you will stop so frequently to take in the view, so budget extra time. A good idea is to break up the day with pit stops in the small towns you'll find on the way, where you can refill with Vietnamese iced coffee or pho.

      CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE

      After Son La, you can head directly to the big city in the north, Sapa, but you'd be wise to head to Dien Bien Phu on the QL279 turnoff instead, where you can view the site of one of the most decisive and game-changing military victories in modern history. DBP is where the French rule of Vietnam came to an ignominious end—think Custer's Last Stand in Indochina. Walk around Hill A-1, and then visit the ranks of unmarked graves in the war cemeteries. It's a grim reminder of the war-torn history of the beautiful surroundings.
      Motorcycling Northern Vietnam
      On to Sapa, the center of northern Vietnam. A former French hill station, the town overlooks a valley of waterfalls and rice paddies, and frequently finds itself in puffy white fog as clouds roll into the town center. This is great place for trekking and mountain biking. Trekking Sapa leads multi-day tours around the area, showing off the natural beauty and the culture of the local Hmong hill tribes. For a place to stay, try Thai Binh Sapa.
      Motorcycling Northern Vietnam
       
      It will take a solid day to drive back to Hanoi from Sapa, so it's wise to break up the trip into two pieces, sleeping the LaVieVuLinh ecolodge homestay near Thac Ba Lake on the way back. If you have time, though, spend an extra couple of days and head east to Ba Be National Park. This remarkable area is up for UNESCO status as a World Heritage Site, but is seldom visited because it is tough to access using public transportation. The park plays host to countless species of fauna, including bears, tigers, and the king cobra. Stay in one of the stilt-house homestays in Pac Ngoi village, which cozies up to the shores of Ba Be Lake, the freshwater centerpiece of the park.

       

      ACTIVETRAVEL ASIA would like recommend Motorcycling West to East Northern Vietnam tour.This motorcycling trip reveals a different route to get from Son La to Thac Ba. It offers adventurous riders stunning scenery and great tribal culture exploration. The route is not yet popular thus you do not share the roads with other tourist but mainly share the roads with the locals who are on their Honda to the farm. The perfect itinerary and the support crew ensure you get the most out of the trip in terms of comfort, enjoyment and adventure.
