When my husband and I were making plans to holiday in Vietnam many people commented on how brave (Or crazy) we were since Vietnam is a third world country and we would be travelling with our six month old baby daughter. I split my time between the Hotel Tropical’s Zoo and the larger Bosque da Ciencia, both ranked among the top local attractions. The latter is a rescue and research center set in a park configured as a natural wildlife reserve. The admission was under $3.00. Although I was told the #120 bus went there, having never made the connection after several conflicting directions, I opted for the more costly taxi for the 30 minute ride to the suburbs. When I had just arrived, a fast moving local inhabitant (a small rodent?) dashed across my path before I could whip out my camera. The key attraction near the entrance was a large underwater manatee pool with an observation window below ground. Harder to see were monkeys in the treetops overhead. At ground level, a number of curious rodents crossed my path, including one with bright red ears. For my return, there was a taxi stand outside, a welcome sight after hovering under a covered picnic table while a quick but heavy tropical rain fell. Although the center is technically closed to incoming visitors during lunch, those of us already inside were allowed to stay.

Cruises, for dinner, sailing, snorkeling tours, or whale watching are the most popular activities people pay for on the island. With good reason too. The clear, placid waters surrounding Maui are unparalleled across the globe. Every year, the magazine compiles a list of the 50 best places to visit, taking into account factors like tourism statistics, major events, flight routes, restaurant openings, travel insurance and hotel debuts, along with other things like available attractions and insight from travel agents and industry insiders. A winery and vineyard are only part of the appeal at this hotel on 11,000 acres in Chile’s picturesque Millahue Valley, two hours south of Santiago. The property doubles as an art gallery, showing off the spectacular contemporary collection of owners Alexander and Carrie Vik.

Georgia is a beautiful country situated in the Caucasian region. It is located close to Western Asia and Eastern Europe. The capital of Georgia is Tbilisi. A very beautiful, calm and serene place that can be visited throughout the year. We have different activities for winter and summer. We visited in winter which falls between the months of November to February. Winters are very cold and temperature falls below zero degree Celsius. So it is very essential to carry warm clothing including warmers, jackets, mufflers and if you have a child then all essential items including medication for the child. It is always better to look for cheap and best place that is also less crowded. You can enjoy the cultural heritage, natural beauty, excellent infrastructure and amazing landmarks of such places. It is surely a great experience exploring such best destinations of the world that too at such cheap budget.

I thought about you during the Opening Ceremonies of the 2010 Winter Olympics Sunday night when the athletes from Nepal passed by. Nepal is such a beautiful country. You are very fortunate to have the opportunity to travel there. One thing I will say about Bali is that while it is small in distance there is a ton of traffic and it can be pretty dangerous to drive. To avoid stressing yourself out I recommend picking one area that has a lot that you want to see. I personally picked Kuta for day 1 since my hostel was there and Ubud for day 2. That way I got a taste of the city and countryside. The city had plenty of shopping and tourist attractions, but Ubud was more beautiful and was definitely more budget friendly. If you prefer seeing sights and countryside you may want to stick to the northern parts of Bali for your adventure.

That said, I have two girlfriends, Nancy and Susan, and every year on our birthdays we go to a few far away special places, have lunch, special desserts, cruise the shops (which I can take or leave but since they are with me I don’t mind it. We are wild and crazy. Sometimes we do something fairly local and do weird things. We’ve also had good times after medical procedures where one of us is loopy. You never know what will happen. @Vinaya Ghimire – Yes, Israel is a wonderful travel destination for a once-in-a-lifetime holy land experience. And judging by your tone, Nepal sounds like a great place to visit too. Paris, New York and London are few well known destinations of the world. These are famous all over the place and everyone wants to explore these amazing cities at least once in their life time. But there are few travel destinations which are getting overcrowded and thus, tourists try to neglect such places and look for a better place for their vacation.
