High on a hilltop, above Sintra, the multi-coloured turrets of Pena National Palace can be seen from as far as Lisbon on a clear day. Pena’s dramatic architecture has landed it on the UNESCO World Heritage sites list and made it one of the Seven Wonders of Portugal. For me though, it was the woodland garden of Pena, that stole the show.
Long before Pena was a colourful palace, the hilltop was home to a secluded chapel called Our Lady of Pena. It so inspired King Manuel, he had a monastery built to house 18 monks and donated it to the O
The Potala palace in Lhasa, Tibet is located on what is called the Red Hill and was built by King Songtsen Gampo during the seventh century. It was struck by lightning and devastated by war which led to its destruction. However, the fifth Dalai Lama, in 1645, rebuilt the palace again. Since then, it has become the political center of Tibet. The Potala Palace actually has two palaces in it, the Red and the White Palace. The red one signifies religion and the white one is a ministerial building. This place is known for its complex construction, h
The Palace of Versailles is one of the most prominent ch?teaus in France, located 20 km southwest of Paris. Before the ch?teau was constructed, Versailles was only a small village. Today it is one of the wealthiest suburbs in all of Paris. In the late 17th century, Versailles was also considered the strongest political powerhouse where the monarch used to sit.

The South Pacific island nation of Fiji is not only an inviting and beautiful vacation destination, but its 333 islands are home to scenic wonders, both natural and man-made, and are the cradle of ancient myths and legends as well as modern political sagas.

Here are a few of the more memorable facts about Fiji:

Zip-lines above the canopy are in many ways synonymous with Costa Rica. Originally introduced during the 1970s, zip-lines have developed into one of the country’s most popular and widespread activities. Composed of steel cables and platforms strung at various heights between trees, they offer travelers a unique means of accessing beautiful and remote natural areas. And although they undoubtedly boost the adrenalin of each and every participant, zip-lines also educate their riders on ecology, botany, and reforestation practices. You can find z
The name, Burma, comes from the Bamar people, the dominant group when the British colonialists arrived in the 19th century, although the original name, now used again, of Myanmar has the same linguistic provenance (Mranma in old Burmese). In fact the country is composed of various peoples several of whom were dominant at one time and who have links with Burma’s large neighbours. The ethnic groups include the Mon people in the south and the Shan people in the east whose name derives from Siam and has links to the Thai and Lao peoples, as well
There are over two million scooters teeming through the streets of Vietnam’s largest City, and they are an attraction in their own right.
Totally mesmerizing to watch, they buzz about their business, inches apart; streaming down avenues, weaving, wending, intertwining their way across town and performing hair’s breadth manoeuvres at every cross-road.  Young women wearing peaked helmets sit straight-backed at the traffic lights. Families ride pillion – four up plus baby.  A wardrobe passes by.  The blasting of horns and the screech
Central Oxford is, not surprisingly, compact, but many neighborhoods on the outskirts of the town, away from the university, are worth visiting. The most central point of Oxford is the Carfax, at the crossroads of the High Street, Cornmarket Street, St. Aldate's, and Queen Street. The first of these, along with Broad Street which runs parallel to it, are perhaps the two most typically 'Oxford' streets in the City. Both of them are lined with Oxford Colleges, among themUniversity College, Balliol College, Trinity College, and All Souls Colleg
