For this week I am featuring the beautiful country of Vietnam which was visited by my friend who works as a cabin crew of Emirates airlines. She was so blessed in having this kind of job because she got the chance to travel around the world and visit many beautiful countries and nice places like Vietnam.

Did you know that most travelers to Vietnam are attracted by the country’s wonderful natural beauty? I think its pretty obvious based from the photos of my friend above.  This country is indeed blessed with a ravishing coastline, green mountains, breathtaking national parks, dynamic cities, outstanding cultural interest and one of the world’s best cuisines.

I find Vietnam an outrageously fun country to explore. According to my friend, the locals love to laugh and  drink and you’ll have plenty of opportunities to socialize with them and hear their tales. For travelers,  its  a safe, wonderfully rewarding and incredibly varied country to explore.

For this week I am featuring the beautiful city of Geneva, Switzerland which was visited by my friend who works as a cabin crew of Emirates airlines. She was so blessed in having this kind of job because she got the chance to travel around the world and visit many beautiful countries and nice places just like Geneva.

Geneva is Switzerland’s most international city, as it is where the European seat of the UNO is based. Even the International Red Cross directs its humanitarian campaigns from here. It is also the center for culture and history, for trade fairs and exhibitions. Quays, lakeside promenades, countless parks, lively side streets in the old town and elegant shops invite guests to stroll. You can also take a cruise on Lake Geneva where you can see the unique scenery of castles and magnificent residences set against wonderful landscape and mountain panoramas. Wow! What a lovely holiday destination. I would also love to visit Geneva, Switzerland soon! :)

For this week I am featuring the beautiful city of Venice, Italy which was visited by my friend who works as a cabin crew of Emirates airlines. She was so blessed in having this kind of job because she got the chance to travel around the world and visit many beautiful countries and nice places just like Venice.

Venice is actually one of my dream travel destination. If I have the chance to have a Euro trip, I would definitely visit this beautiful and romantic city. Venice is one of Italy’s top travel cities and a beautiful, romantic destination with many attractions. Its small, traffic free streets along the winding canals make for great walking. You’ll find many magnificent churches and palaces, lively squares, and interesting shops. Venice has many fine attractions and museums but one of the best things to do is take some time wandering along the canals off the main tourist track.

Tourism is a big business in Venice and the city has many exceptional tourist attractions to show off, often being greatly enhanced by their waterfront locations. Boat trips around the Venetian Lagoon and gondola rides along the canals are highly recommended in Venice because it provides tourists with a relaxing and easy way to see many famous attractions. 

Travel Attractions of the Week: Vienna, Austria

Every week I am going to feature different tourist attractions, nice scenery and views from different countries which was visited by my family and friends. Since I am just a virtual traveler this time, I asked permission from them to post their travel photos here in my travel blog.

For this week I am featuring the beautiful city of Vienna, Austria which was visited by my friend who works as a cabin crew of Emirates airlines. She was so blessed in having this kind of job because she has the chance to travel around the world and visit many beautiful countries and nice places just like Vienna. This city is conveniently located on the rail lines between Venice, Budapest, and Prague, the crossroads between Eastern and Western Europe.

Vienna stands at the heart of Europe, smack on the intersection between the East and West. It also makes for a great home base for exploring Central Europe like Germany, The Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovania, Italy and Switzerland.

If  you like history, classical musical heritage, architecture and grand palaces are among your interests, then you must visit Vienna. If music and the outdoors is your interest check out the Summer Music Festivals in Austria, which are spectacular. Perhaps a River Cruise on the Danube River is on your itinerary.

Vienna is a huge city with lots of sightseeing, restaurant, nightlife and accommodation.  As you tour around this city, you’ll soon discover that there’s so much more attractions that Austria has to offer.

 

Travel Attractions of the Week: Milan, Italy

Every week I am going to feature different tourist attractions, nice scenery and views from different countries which was visited by my family and friends. Since I am just a virtual traveler this time, I asked permission from them to post their travel photos here in my travel blog. All their photos are credited from them and I’d like to thank them for being so kind and so supportive to me.

For this week I am featuring the beautiful city of Milan, Italy which was visited by my friend who works as a cabin crew of Emirates airlines. She was so blessed in having this kind of job because she has the chance to travel around the world  and visit many beautiful countries and nice places just like Milan.  It is a city that is rich in style and fashion. Not just that, it  also comes with more than its fair share of leading tourist attractions. When you first arrive in Milan, do treat yourself to a guided tour of the city, whether on foot or by bus so that you can see what attractions are on offer and where exactly they are located.

Daily walking tours in Milan are popular for tourists as it takes in many of the city’s most interesting attractions and landmarks.  You should visit The Teatro alla Scala opera house since it is particularly a notable place of interest in the city. There are also many palaces of Milan, such as the Palazzo Borromeo, the Palazzo Marino and the Palazzo Real, amongst many others. Further tourist attractions within the city include the Meazza Stadium, the Rotonda della Besana and the Giuseppe Verdi Music Conservatory. Shows and event are also taking place at the enormous Fiera di Milano Trade Fair complex.

Milan features a wide range of attractions to suit the tastes of all tourists. Its old and impressive structures really amazed me. This is actually the most visited landmarks of the city. I would love to see the Duomo Cathedral and Santa Maria delle Grazie church where da Vinci painted his major “The Last Supper” masterpiece as well as the beautiful sculptures and architectures  as we contemplate the beauty of Milan’s heritage.

I also love to visit The Teatro alla Scala since it is a symbol of Milan where it is  famous for high fashion, celebrities, glamorous parties and some of the world’s best operatic performances.  I haven’t seen a  major opera house yet that is why I would love to see and witness the realm of classical music when we got the chance to  visit Milan on our Europe trip soon. My friend also told me that we should visit Piazza Duomo because we can visit those luxurious shops and charming restaurants with inviting settings and excellent cuisine.

Kaamulan Festival in Bukidnon

I’m a bit late for this week’s Tuesday Travels but I don’t wanna miss it so here’s my Octoberfest entry. Our hometown visit as we witnessed the Kaamulan Festival 2011 which was held last March at my birthplace in Malaybalay City, Bukidnon.


 I really miss watching this kind of festival here in our hometown. I miss my grandmother who used to be one of the active dancer and participant of the street dancing competition which is the highlight of the festival.


We call it Kaamulan from the Binukid word amul which means to gather. It is a gathering of Bukidnon tribal people for a purpose. It means a datuship ritual, a wedding ceremony, a thanksgiving festival during harvest time, a peace pact, or all of these put together.


Showcasing the unique indigenous culture of Bukidnon, Kaamulan is held annually in the province of Bukidnon, particularly in my beloved hometown in Malaybalay City. It is usually held every 1st week of the month of March.


Kaamulan has become an avenue for the recognition and appreciation of Bukidnon’s unraveled cultural legacy carefully preserved by the traditional population.

Me, My Mom and my daughter :)

Kaamulan is indeed an interesting ground for the unification of the people of Bukidnon. The one that converges the past and the present, celebrates its rich culture and inspires its people.

She was so blessed in having this kind of job because she has the chance to travel around the world  and visit many beautiful countries and nice places just like Seychelles.


This beautiful island is probably one of the most beautiful places in the world. You can  enjoy sailing, snorkeling, fishing, and relaxing.  The culture, history, and geography of Seychelles is something all travelers should experience.

Travel of the Week: Pattaya City, Thailand

Every week I am going to feature different tourist attractions, nice scenery and views from different countries which was visited by my family and friends. Since I am just a virtual traveler this time, I asked permission from them to post their travel photos here in my travel blog. All their photos are credited from them and I’d like to thank them for being so kind and so supportive to me.

And for this week’s “Travel of the Week”, I will feature the city of Pattaya, Thailand which was visited by my sister a few weeks ago. Pattaya is actually famous for its nightlife. Many tourists flock to Pattaya for the party atmosphere, where the nightlife and menu is there wherever you go.

 

The most famous nightlife area of Pattaya is the Walking Street, South Pattaya. The street itself and its adjoining lanes are all packed with discos, bars, massage parlours and restaurants. It is crowded daily and the noisy bustle attracts folks from all over.

A walk down on the street also has lots of night market stalls and stores for clothing and accessories.

Exotic foods are also there on the sidewalk of the street

Apart from the raucous side, Pattaya also has a number of other night-time venues. Thai kick-boxing, known as Muay Thai, can be seen at many bar complexes scattered around Pattaya.

Pattaya’s attractions are actually popular by day or night with quite a few day trips worth making. But many find the nightlife the real highlight, centered around the go go bars and discos of Walking Street or the quieter beer bars in lanes of the beach road.
