Machu Picchu tourist attractions


Machu Picchu, a city built during the 1460 and 1470 AD, is situated high in the Andes Mountains in Peru. Everything inside this city from the complex and refined gardens to the multifaceted bridges and channels was intended to give travelers and locals an idea about the blessed relationship of nature and mankind. If you are planning to travel to Macchu Picchu, the best time to visit is during the off peak months from April to May or September to October. Fewer travelers go to see Macchu Picchu during these months providing you with ease in traveling without the stress of queuing with hoards of travelers going to and from. You can have the chance to enjoy every glimpse within the city during Sundays when less people go there. In case the crowds increase during noontime and you want to avoid this assembly, you can settle to visit a nearby attraction like the Huayna Picchu or the Inca Bridge then go back to Macchu Picchu when the crowd is easier to handle.

Visiting Malaysia


Among U.S. travelers, many countries in Southeast Asia have reputations for difficult travel, customs and wildly foreign food — how do half-gestated chicken embryos appeal? Malaysia is an exception. This multi-ethnic, multicultural country, split into west and east regions by the South China Sea, boasts excellent roads, a brand new airport and country-crossing trains. It offers three-star hotels with $40 rooms, and visas are not required for most passport holders. For people who are intrigued by Southeast Asia, but find the idea of traveling there daunting, go to Malaysia. For solo travelers with a backpack who want to avoid the crowds of rowdy teenagers in Thailand, go to Malaysia.

Travelling to Venice


Venice’s lovely cathedrals and churches are too numerous to count; the most famous are Chiesa di Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari which is a huge Gothic church, and the Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute. If you are not interested in ancient history but are more interested in shopping for souvenirs or related stuff, then some of the most interesting shops are located in two areas that lead off San Marco Square. The history of Venice is a very long and troubled one, and the many monuments are a testament to this fact.

Romancing a Himalayan sanctuary


Something or the other will certainly dominate in this region. The elements have to battle one another and yet co-exist in harmony. The Teesta will, for instance, roar threateningly through deep gorges, carving out narrow valleys. The slopes here will be steeper than anywhere else in the world. Mountain faces will be sharper than is normally the case and yet be greener than can ever be imagined. Even in the wrong season. The Red Panda, no matter how cuddly and small, will quietly survive the mercurial temperament of nature. As will the Yak. Trembling in the snows, still plodding on. Glaciers will rumble forbiddingly. Avalanches will thunder down on them. Yet the peaks would glow, drawing themselves up to their full height, their beauty brazenly establishing the true hierarchy of nature. Snow storms and white will be be at one end of the spectrum and hot weather at lower climes will define the climatic boundaries of the region. The Kangchenjunga will loom above it all, its illusion making a mockery of the reality of Everest.
