Trip to the Maldives

Trip to the Maldives

The Maldives are without and doubt heaven on Earth. Unfortunately, they are slowly sinking due to the rising sea level. So, don’t lose your opportunity and visit these incredible islands now!

Here are a few tips about the trip to the Maldives: what do do and where to go! The Maldives is a haven for snorkellers and scuba divers, with its abundance of coral and sea

life. Its beaches and hotels don’t disappoint either.

  • Where are the Maldives?

The Maldives is a group of over 1000 coral islands, set in the Indian Ocean. They are located on the south-west coast of India.

  • Where can I stay?

It’s hard to beat the perfect combination of white sandy beaches, perfect blue seas and tropical sun and most hotels in the Maldives make the most of their surroundings by offering guests access to the beach directly from their rooms, or creating romantic areas for dinner and drinking. Boutique hotels go a step further than this by creating a relaxed, contemporary feel that makes guests feel right at home.

On the Ari Atoll lies the most exclusive hotel in the island group, the Dhoni Mighili. This stunning hotel sleeps just twelve people, and guests arrive either by luxury speedboat, private plane or romantic Dhoni. A butler sees to your every need. Eat, drink and sleep to your own schedule and make the most of every minute.

Or, if the North Male Atoll is more to your taste, the Hufaven Fushi is a decadent boutique hotel just 25 minutes by speedboat from the Male International Airport. Relax by your private pool, because there’s only your villa and one other on the whole complex. If you want a candlelit dinner on the beach, just say so. This experience is worth every penny!

  • What can I see?

The islands that make up the Maldives are all small, and it is a good idea to visit more than one!. Many people come for the diving and snorkelling, but it may be worthwhile taking a trip to Male, the capital city, where markets, mosques and small shops may bring you back to everyday life. Otherwise, just take in the beauty of the coastlines and the ocean from your boutique retreat and soak up the sun. There is also fantastic wildlife! You can see sharks, dolphins and much more!

  • How do I get around?

Only some of the islands fall within the heavily regulated tourist zone, which the Government has imposed to prevent the destruction of natural landscapes and villages. If you want to move between permitted islands, then you can fly or use a dhoni or speedboat. Most islands, however, are small enough to walk or bike around easily.

The Maldives might be exclusive, but if you have the time and you are prepared to indulge yourself, then there’s nowhere better to go.

It is truly the paradise on Earth!

What to do in Dubai in one day

Travelling long distance by plane often require a transit. If you travel to Asia there are high chances that your stop will be in Dubai. Why not staying there for one day on the occasion?

I will try to make your decisions a bit easier!

Here are a few tips on what to do in Dubai if you only have one day!

Plan for one day visit:
  • Hotel

If you only have one day, it is a good idea to stay close to the airport. Dubai is a big city and you have to now that you will have to commute there either by car or public transport.

If you are looking for a good hotel with outstanding views I can recommend Hotel Address Boulevard.

What to do in Dubai. Safari

  • Desert Safari

So, what to do in Dubai first? Wake up really early for sunrise Dubai Safari! There are several available options for the tourists to get their safaris selected from. Generally, all major hotels and resorts will get such trips organized when asked for by their clients. You can find more information here.

If you never have been in the desert it is worth it to wake up early and experience it! The views are really breathtaking.

  • Walk in Dubai Marina

The Marina, called initially Westside, looks set to become one of the main tourist attractions for the travellers in the years to follow. Marina offers plenty of restaurants and cafes, so it is a prefect place to go for lunch after your morning desert safari. Here you can also admire the outstanding, modern architecture of the city.

  • The Dubaj Frame

The perfect ending of Dubai experience will be climbing some hight skyscraper for amazing views! I will recommend Dubai Frame. It is a bit outside of the city centre, so you will have a perfect view of the whole city. It also has a glass floor through which you can see the ground! Wait there for the sunset to have the perfect ending of the day!

 Ella – Hiking

Ella is one of my favourite cities in Sri Lanka. It is a beautiful, little city located in the mountains. You can find there a lot of shops with local souvenirs and delicious food. But my favourite activity there is definitely hiking! Start with the short hike to Little Adam Peak- takes around 40 minutes. If you have more time, there are plenty of long hikes waiting for you there!

Nine Arches Bridge

This place is amazing. Nine Arches Bridge is laying in the beautiful scenery of tea plantations and mountains. Be sure to wait and see the train passing. Nine Arches Bridge is definitely one of the best places in Sri Lanka!

Sea Turtle Conservation Project

Make sure to visit the Induruwa Sea Turtle Conservation Project on your way from Colombo to Galle. It is a place where wild animals go when they get injured. They get proper help here and are being realised to the wild if possible. I always try to only activities that do not hurt animals, and I am a big animal lover!

Hiriketiya Beach- Snorkelling and surfing

Hiriketiya Beach is small pictures beach. It is an excellent spot to rent a surfboard or go snorkelling.

I was lucky to see there a small shark during my morning snorkelling!

Udawalawe National Park- Safari

Udawalawe National Park is a place to go if you are looking for a safari experience. Yala National Park- the bigger park in Sri Lanka is way too crowded. There are hundreds of jeeps scaring all animals and making this experience terrible.

Colombo- Tuk- tuk ride

I am not the biggest fan of busy and crowded cities. Especially when it is so hot there. Colombo has its charm, and as it is the city you are more likely to land while travelling to Sri Lanka it is a good idea to take some advantage of it! Tuk-Tuk ride is must do there! It is amusing, and you will see the whole city!

Tangalle- Staying at the beach hut

Tangalle is the most paradise- looking place in Sri Lanka I have visited. There are a few nice hotels that offer beach huts. It is stunning there! And a perfect place to relax.

Exciting Things To Do In Mauritius

Exciting Things To Do In Mauritius

If sitting on a beach all day every day isn’t quite your cup of tea, but you really fancy a long haul holiday to a stunning island destination, Mauritius could be just what you are looking for. With many activities both in and out of the resorts, a luxury holiday in Mauritius can provide interest for a range of visitors.

The island itself is an independent state in the Indian Ocean, 900km east of Madagascar. The area is 1860sq km and is made up of a central plateau, gradually rising towards the South West where it reaches its highest point at 800m.

Excursions around the island will give you an insight into the islands rich and colorful history, and where better to start than the vibrant capital, Port Louis. The harbor on the west of the island lies sheltered in a semi-circle of mountains, and the town has plenty of character and proudly displays signs of its historical past.

If designer shopping outlets are what you are looking for, then a trip to Curepipe is well worth the visit. This is the islands main urban center and is worth a stop if traveling through it on route to somewhere else! It’s located in the center of the island between Port Louis and the airport.

Mahebourg is a village which is worth a visit, especially if staying in the southeast of the island. It’s still one of the islands main fishing villages, and you are at leisure to wander around the market stalls. You can even hire a bicycle and cycle there if you are staying at the Shandrani!

Catamaran Trips can be arranged from most hotels and are an excellent way to see the beauty of Mauritius from the relaxing waters of the Indian Ocean. You are encouraged to snorkel from the boat, and you also have time to relax on one of the beautiful beaches of the island.

Mauritius has a wealth of activities orientated around its environment.

A nature park close to Port Louis, Domaine Les Pailles, covers 3000 acres at the foot of a mountain range. There are deer and rare birds in the park, and if you like a bit of adrenaline, Land Rover ‘safaris’ and quad biking are also available.

The island has a stunning botanical garden called Pamplemousses, it’s known to naturalists throughout the world for its large collection of indigenous and exotic palms, and the giant Victoria Amazonica water lilies. It is well worth paying for a guide to take you around the gardens as their knowledge and tit-bits of information make the visit all the more enjoyable.

A unique feature in Mauritius is Chamarel, an area of undulating land stretching in contrasting layers of color, the patches of blue, green, red and yellow earth, all believed to be the results of weathering.

Mauritius is well known to ornithologists and the Casela Bird Park is set in the area of Black River, and stretches over 20 acres. There are more than 140 varieties of birds, from 5 continents. The main attraction is the Mauritian Pink Pigeon, one of the rarest birds in the world.

The beautiful flower of Ylang with its fragrant yellow flowers, is grown in a plantation called Le Domaine de l’Ylang Ylang. Here the perfume is distilled over panoramic views over the bay of Vieux Grand Port, where the neighboring islets can be seen.

Trips around the island can be booked from your hotel, with luxury holidays in Mauritius to a variety of hotels including the Shandrani can be arranged through Beachcomber Tours. For more information visit www.beachcombertours.co.uk or call 01483 445610.

The Most Exciting Way to Spend the Summer

The Most Exciting Way to Spend the Summer

Going on a cruise is probably one of the best wayto spend the holidays. You get to travel to different parts of the world where the cruise ship docks: from the sunny tropical isles of the Caribbean, the exotic ports of the Mediterranean and even as far away as the snowbound fjords of Alaska. Also, today’s cruise ships are veritable floating hotels or even floating cities with a complete array of recreational facilities and top-notch luxury amenities.

Most people spend up to a maximum of 10, 000 dollars per week to go on a cruise. What if you have the chance to enjoy the cruise ship experience for free and also get paid for it? Sounds like a tall tale, isn’t it? But it is actually quite possible by getting a job on a cruise ship. There are even cruise ship summer jobs for students too. If you love taking an adventure, meeting lots of people and have that wanderlust within you, a summer job on a cruise ship is the best option.

What are the perks and benefits of working on a luxury cruise ship? This kind of job actually has numerous rewards. Some of the most common perks of working on a cruise ship are the following. You will not only earn by taking up a cruise ship summer job, but you also get to save up money within a short period of time since almost all your expenses within the ship such as accommodation, food, medical care, and others, will be taken care of by the cruise line.

Of course, another advantage of a cruise ship summer job is that you get to travel in style to the top destinations of the world and get paid for it. Probably, no other overseas job offers the same variety and fun as a job on a cruise ship. In fact, you will not be working on only one country but will get to experience the sights and sounds of the different countries where the cruise ship calls.

There are hundreds of jobs on board cruise ships as well as cruise company headquarters on land. It’s just a matter of finding the right job that fits your skills and abilities. Cruise lines hire people with knowledge and expertise in any of the following: hospitality, entertainment, customer relations, marketing, healthcare, fitness, tourism, accounting and so much more. These cruise lines also look for people who are naturally outgoing and have a positive attitude which is especially helpful when on board a ship along with thousands of tourists who want to experience the best holiday.

How to find a cruise ship summer job?

The first step is to know who the key companies in the cruise ship industry are such as Royal Caribbean, Princess Cruises and Carnival Cruises – the big three of the cruise ship industry. There are also smaller cruise ship companies and specialty cruise lines. Cruise liners offer different programs and facilities ranging from spas, salons, music bars, sports facilities, and many more. Choose a job that you are interested in and probably have some knowledge about. Your education, as well as your previous work experience, will prove to be helpful when applying for a cruise ship summer job.

Just a tip: before you send your resume, it will be a great advantage if you learn at least one new language. It is also highly recommended to get your CPR or Lifesaving Certification, as this will definitely be a plus.
