Mackinac Island is one of those vacations that you have to take at least
one time. There is such a peaceful feeling when you step off of the ferry and
on Mackinac Island dock. You can take Sheplers ferry, Starline Ferry or Arnolds
ferry and have a fantastic ride over to the Island. Sit on the upper deck and
see the beautiful views or sit on the bottom deck in the enclosed cabin.
When you step off the ferry you will smell the sweet aroma of fudge and
be drawn to the fudge shops like Ryba’s fudge, Murdick’s Fudge, or May’s candy
shop. There is a total of six fudge shops on the island. There are also many
shops to visit while you walk downtown. Pick up a souvenir, t-shirt or a toy
for your little one. The shops are filled with many neat items, and you will
find something that you can’t live without.
After you are done exploring downtown there is Fort Mackinac. The Fort
is one of my family’s favorite historical places to visit. Everything comes to
life when you enter the fort. You will hear rifles firing, cannon balls, and
see solder’s in action. It is very interesting to watch what happened back then
and to explore the buildings that are apart of the fort.
The Grand Hotel is another nice place to visit. It is a historical hotel
that was one of the firsts on the island. You can tour the hotel for a charge,
but it is worth it to see. Go out to the garden and if you paid to tour the
Fort, then you can go to the Fort Mackinac Tea Room for lunch in the Grand
There are no vehicles on the island so you will have to take a …
Thailand has received media attention and has made headlines in
international newspapers for almost two months in 2010, with red shirt protests
demanding the prime minister’s resignation and dissolution of parliament. After
the protest ended, the country was safe to visit again. The following six
highly recommended initial visits are worth following:
Enjoying an eco-adventure cruise on the Chao Phraya river, aboard a
traditional teak barge from Bangkok to Ayuthaya is a great idea for those who
don’t want to go too far from the capital and eat delicious Thai food on board.
Stopping along the road allows tourists to take a bicycle trip and learn about
the villagers’ way of life.
Riding elephants and rafting in a nature reserve in the Umphang National
Park is a very pleasant experience and a favorite visit of many tourists who
want to be close to nature. Many activities in the midst of greenery are
possible such as trekking in a stunning environment and the long journey of an
elephant in the forest is a kind of adventure as is the descent of a river on a
Scuba diving in the deep waters of Turtle Island, located in the Gulf of
Siam, in the north of Samui Island is another option for scuba divers who want
to enjoy the beautiful seabed with colorful fish and corals. Snorkeling is also
a good possibility for those who have not yet taken a scuba diving course and
other possible activities such as touring the island in a break room with a
stop over at Ko Nang Yuan, an island with 3 beach arms shaped like stars and
the sea on all sides.
Participating in an ecological adventure tour around the Khao Laem lake
in Kantchanaburi, a few hours from the capital, is a great …
With all the concerns people are
having about the state of our economy, I was happy to find out that the travel
industry is doing well. The luxury travel market has seen a steady increase
because now more than ever, everyone needs to get away from it all and relax!
“One man’s ceiling is
another man’s floor” as they say, so everyone’s ideas about luxury can be
very different. For example, a luxury vacation for you might visit the French
Riviera and live in a first-class villa overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. Others
may be perfectly happy camping out on a secluded tropical beach counting the
stars at night.
Just like it’s a “buyers
market” for housing, the travel business has never been in a better
position to offer so much for so little. Luxury travel providers are doing
their best to lure as many travelers as possible with their deals and specials.
I would suggest taking advantage of this by visiting a new and exciting location
that you have always wanted to explore.
After you have chosen a
destination, the next step is to figure out your travel budget, which will
assure that you will have the best possible experience without wiping you out
financially. Whatever your passion may be, there are a multitude of travel
options for you that will fit any budget.
Now you are ready to begin your
research process! What mode of transportation will you need? If traveling
internationally by air, do you have a current passport? What kind of
accommodations would you like? When you arrive at your destination, what type
of activities and excursions will be available for you to enjoy?
These are just a few major points
to consider when you begin your quest for the perfect luxury vacation. Careful
planning when putting …
African safari adventures are a
lifelong dream for many people. There’s something about magnificent landscapes
and wide open, infinite horizons, experiencing wildlife in their own habitat,
which captures the imagination and changes your perspective on life. Names such
as the Serengeti and Maasai Mara, conjured up visions of many herds of
large-scale migrations in the plains, interspersed with thorns chiselled or
twisted and dramatic skies.
One of the most authentic ways to
experience an African safari trip, is to stay in a luxury camp, where only a
canvas layer separates you from wild rhythms. Looking up at the starry night
sky and hearing the sounds of distant lions, or snoring snoring like frogs as
they pass through the camp, gives you the sensation of being united with the
environment. In a luxury camp, you can enjoy closeness to nature without having
to bother him. Hot water, showers, comfortable beds, and fantastic food under
the stars are produced easily in a camp on a hillside overlooking a wide plain,
or in the shade of a jackalberry tree with a view of the stands from a watering
Some luxury tent tents offer
nostalgic re-creations in the early days of safari, set tables with fine silver
and crystal, provide brass lamps and washbasins, and perfect service. You can
imagine yourself as an early explorer discovering this landscape for the first
time, when you turn off all electronic gadgets, pull out zones from the 21st
century, just listen to the sounds of the natural world and relax. Other camps
create modern vernacular safaris, with sleek designs combined with natural
materials and a little luxury to pamper your senses.
From a conservation point of
view, these tent camps leave very light footprints and in some cases can be
moved to other sites every month …
