Myanmar – Inle Lake

In western Shan State, you will find picturesque Inle Lake, famous for its floating villages and gardens and the unique way of life of the local Intha people, with their living communities based entirely on the water.

The lake, which measures 22 km long by 10 km wide, and sits in a valley between two mountain ranges. Being here feels like you are in a different place than the rest of Myanmar:  villages and towns across the lake, wooden houses are built on stilts and fishermen steer their one-man boats with a characteristic rowing style, wrapping one leg around their oar.

Ireland Dublin

A long weekend travel to Dublin in February, and things to do in Dublin in 3 days.

Dublin is known both for lively atmosphere and historical scene. The city offers a lot to see, still it is remarkably small and intimate. A self guided walking tour does not need a lot of preparation and this is the best way to discover Dublin. The best sights are situated in a comparatively small area. O’Connell Bridge and Ha`penny Bridge are located in the central of Dublin.

Alicante Province

Day trip from Alicante to Benidorm, Wine Tour and Altea

There are plenty of places to visit around Costa Blanca region. Benidorm is located in the province of Alicante, one hour north on Mediterranean cost. Benidorm has most skyscrapers in Spain, therefore called as Spanish Manhattan. It has the most high-rise buildings per capita. It has been a tourist destination within Spain since 1925, when its port was extended and the first hotels were built. Perhaps, the real “boom” of Benidorm as a coastal resort did not happen until the 1950s, when it became a famous summer destination. Today there are more foreign tourists than Spanish tourists.
