Traditional water puppetry originated in the North’s Red River Delta, where for centuries, farmers practiced this recreational art form in flooded paddies. Handed down the generations, this unique puppetry nearly died out but has seen a huge revival, recognized as an Intangible Cultural Heritage and performed in theatres in major cities and award-winning international tours. Hidden behind a bamboo screen, puppeteers manipulate lacquered wooden puppets using rods while wading in waist-deep water, which act out traditional stories based on ancient folk tales and rural village life on an ever-changing, watery stage, The hour-long shows of short vignettes are accompanied by live traditional music and while all in Vietnamese, the comical, delightful puppetry and music keeps the audience enthralled. In Hanoi, book your tickets at the world-famous Thang Long Water Puppet Theater and in Ho Chi Minh City, at The Golden Dragon Water Puppetry Theater or Museum of Vietnamese History.
Bab el-Mansour, Meknes: One of the most beautiful monumental gates in the entire nation, Meknes’s Bab el-Mansour is adorned with striking tilework and decorative calligraphy. Built in the 1730s, it was the main gateway between the city’s old medina and the former royal capital. Colourful, active, atmospheric, and more than a little pungent, the tanneries of Fes let visitors see part of the ancient leatherwork processes. Watch as hard-working men treat and dye leather in large pits, using methods that have remained largely the same for several hundred years. There are several viewing areas, accessed through leather shops, from where you can watch the work in the Chaouwara Tanneries.
Beautiful Blyde River Canyon Nature Reserve (also called Motlatse River Canyon) is a favorite stop on the drive between Johannesburg and Kruger National Park. The park is home to Africa’s second largest canyon, as well as a rich diversity of wildlife and plants. Lush subtropical foliage, waterfalls, glistening rivers, and lichen-covered rock formations create a striking canvas of color and texture. Game viewing can be particularly rewarding, with all the common species of South African primates and many hippos and crocodiles. The best way to explore this spectacular park is via the scenic driving routes or by hiking the extensive trails. Panoramic viewpoints include Three Rondavels and the aptly named God’s Window. Boat trips and whitewater rafting are also available on the rivers.

Hotwire keeps things straightforward. All you need to do is enter what you’re looking for, and a somewhat dated interface tells you what’s available. It’s not as pretty as some sites, but we really liked the extensive property type filters available. Want to stay on a houseboat or in a chalet at your destination? Hit the relevant filter, and you can find out if that’s an option in the locale. That might not matter if your heart is set on a hotel, but it’s a nice bonus even amongst the awkward site layout. Elsewhere, it’s mostly business as usual, but that’s no bad thing. Well laid out discounts are available to compare reasonably quickly, and most locations have plenty of reviews. If you feel like tracking down specific deals, you can do that too, with the site keen to offer up discounts to central locations if you’re not quite sure where you’d like to visit next. It feels like the site needs updating when you compare it to its rivals, but it works well and speedily enough.

Search incognito! When you google, it is advisable to search in incognito mode, lest you find yourself getting a price today, and tomorrow it is double. Being a marketing world, prices explode the second they see you clicked to a certain destination. And also on google, search on google flights, just put the dates without destination and you will see the world map and where you can find cheap plane tickets. Choose your destination well! Put several destinations on your travel list, not just one, and analyze which would be the cheapest and most suitable for you. If you are dying to get to Antalya in the summer, you can take more money out of your pocket than if you accepted a more advantageous ticket to Tenerife. There are sites that show you where in the world there are good prices, for example Kiwi.com.
Wat Phra Khao Yai is also known as Big Buddha Hill, it is referred to as this because it is the biggest Buddha in the region, it stands at 18 meters tall and sits about 100 meters above sea level.

As well as the Buddha there is a temple complex as well which has incense burning all day long as well many bells. The temple is still used to this day so expect to see monks and praying locals.
The multitude of options or the amount of information: The number of options you have when looking for a convenient plane ticket for your trip on our blog is much greater than the number of options that will be presented to you in a traditional agency (either on the phone or at the agency’s headquarters). Why? Because the information is transmitted differently. To give you an example from the real world, we call on your imagination and Maria, an imaginary ticketing agent. You are in an agency in your city and you ask Maria which is the best option for your next trip to Rome. Most likely, you will receive between 3 and 5 options, due to time limits. No one will exhaustively explain all the existing options to you for 3 hours. The agency would go bankrupt if it spent so much time with each client, and you would be bored to death after 30 minutes. On the website you even get 100 options from which to choose your plane tickets, which you can analyze in peace.

Hermanus in Walker Bay is world-renowned as one of the best whale-watching spots on the planet, allowing you to get close to these massive animals on a boat tour, by kayak or just watching them from the shore. The Southern Right whales grow to a massive 18 meters long and can weigh up to 80 tons, these animals really are huge. The name ‘Southern Right’ comes from the fact that they were seen as the ‘right’ whales to hunt in the past, because they swim relatively slow and don’t dive for too long, spending a lot of time on the surface.
