Fiji

Summer is so Hot.! You want to have a Vacation and have Nice Beach to swim.? You can Swim Here.

Fiji is an island country in Melanesia in the South Pacific Ocean about 1,100 nautical miles (2,000 km; 1,300 mi) northeast of New Zealand’s North Island. Its closest neighbours are Vanuatu to the west, New Caledoniato the southwest, New Zealand’s Kermadec Islands to the southeast, Tonga to the east, the Samoas and France’s Wallis and Futunato the northeast, and Tuvalu to the north.

Fiji is an archipelago of more than 330 islands, of which 110 are permanently inhabited, and more than 500 islets, amounting to a total land area of about 18,300 square kilometres (7,100 sq mi). The farthest island is Ono-i-Lau. The two major islands, Viti Levuand Vanua Levu, account for 87% of the population of almost 860,000. The capital, Suva on Viti Levu, serves as Fiji’s principal cruise port. About three-quarters of Fijians live on Viti Levu’s coasts, either in Suva or in smaller urban centres like Nadi (tourism)orLautoka (sugar cane industry). Viti Levu’s interior is sparsely inhabited due to its terrain.

Korolevu, on the Coral Coast, is the birthplace of Fiji tourism.  A brilliant stretch of white beach dotted by copious lush vegetation, popular back-packers, hotels and resorts still line its beautiful shore.
The place that started it all is the Korolevu Beach Hotel. Built in the 1950s by pioneer hotelier Bill Clarke on 76 acres of prime real estate, it was an immediate hit with the colonial expatriates of Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.

Korolevu is believed to be the first place where individual bungalow-style units were called “bures.” Clarke was also the pioneer of cultural shows to educate guests about the local lifestyle.
Long since closed, the Beach hotel’s legacy is a still-thriving tourist industry as guests continue to arrive, drawn by Fiji’s natural beauty and Fijian’s natural hospitality.

Maldives

Looking for a Place for your Honeymoon.? Well Look no More. 

The name Maldives may derive from the Malayalam words “maala” (garland) and “dweepu” (island) or the Tamil maalai (garland / evening) and theevu (island), or Maala Divaina (“Necklace Islands”) in Sinhala. The Maldivian people are calledDhivehin. The word Theevu (archaic Dheevu, related to Tamil dheevu) means “island”, and Dhives (Dhivehin) means “islanders” (i.e., Maldivians).[

The ancient Sri Lankan chronicle Mahawamsa refers to an island called Mahiladiva (“Island of Women”) in Pali, which is probably a mistranslation of the same Sanskrit word meaning “garland”.

Though the ancient history of the enthralling Maldives is enshrouded in mystery, it is believed that the island nation was inhabited over 2500 years ago. Besides the recorded early history of the Maldives is limited and few archaeological remains of the prehistoric period survived.

Minorca, Spain

Have you ever see a water so clear that the boat looks like floating in air.?

Minorca or Menorca (Catalan: Menorca; Spanish: Menorca; from Latin: Insula Minor, laterMinorica “smaller island”) is one of the Balearic Islands located in the Mediterranean Sea belonging to Spain. Its name derives from its size, contrasting it with nearby Majorca.

Minorca has a population of approximately 94,383 (2010). It is located 39°47′ to 40°00’N, 3°52′ to 4°24’E. Its highest point, called El Toro or Monte Toro, is 358 metres (1,175 feet) above sea level.

The island has 216 kilometres of highly varied coastline, from the rugged shores and reddish beaches of the north, to the gentle relief of the south, with golden sandy coves. There are many different options to enjoy sun and sea, whether on broad sandy beaches or at small coves surrounded by pine groves. They all have one thing in common, however: clean, crystal clear waters.You can go sailing, windsurfing, water skiing and, of course, scuba diving here.

Minorca’s stunning sea bed has been a favourite amongst diving enthusiasts for decades. The island transmits a sense of calm, largely on account of its valuable countryside. Minorca has the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve designation and a wealth of flora, fauna and landscapes.Outings on foot, by bike or on horseback, on the marked trails and routes, are a good way to get to know these beautiful surroundings. Most outstanding is the S’Albufera d’Es Grau Nature Reserve, a refuge for many aquatic and migratory birds, which is also one of southern Europe’s most important wetland areas..

Taal Lake, Philippines

Have you see An Island with a lake that has an island in it, which was it’s own lake, which has it’s own small island in it. Its called Taal Lake.?

Taal Lake, formerly known as Bombón Lake, is a freshwater lake in the province of Batangas, on the island of Luzon in thePhilippines. The lake fills Taal Caldera, a large volcanic caldera formed by very large eruptions between 500,000 and 100,000 years ago. It is the country’s third largest lake after Laguna de Bay and Lake Lanao. Volcano Island, the location of Taal Volcano’s historical eruptions and responsible for the lake’s sulfuric content, lies near the center of the lake. There is a crater lake on Volcano Island. Known as the Yellow Lake or the Main Crater Lake, it contains its own small island, Vulcan Point. Vulcan Point was thought to be the largest third order island in the world but Treasure Island (Ontario) is much bigger and is thought to be the world largest, and is also on a freshwater lake.

Taal Volcano (Filipino: Bulkang Taal) is a complex volcano located on the island of Luzon in the Philippines. It is the second most active volcano in the Philippines with 33 historical eruptions. All of these eruptions are concentrated on Volcano Island, an island near the middle of Taal Lake. The lake partially fills Taal Caldera, which was formed by prehistoric eruptions between 140,000 and 5,380 BP. Viewed from Tagaytay Ridge, Taal Volcano and Lake presents one of the most picturesque and attractive views in the Philippines. It is located about 50 kilometres (31 miles) south of the capital of the country, the city ofManila.

The volcano had several violent eruptions in the past causing loss of life in the island and the populated areas surrounding the lake, with the death toll estimated at around 5,000 to 6,000. Because of its proximity to populated areas and its eruptive history, the volcano was designated a Decade Volcano, worthy of close study to prevent future natural disasters. All volcanoes of the Philippines are part of the Pacific Ring of Fire.

Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights)

An aurora, sometimes referred to as a polar light, is a natural light display in the sky, predominantly seen in the high latitude (Arctic and Antarctic) regions. Auroras are produced when the magnetosphere is sufficiently disturbed by the solar wind that the trajectories of charged particles in both solar wind andmagnetospheric plasma, mainly in the form of electrons and protons, precipitate them into the upper atmosphere (thermosphere/exosphere), where their energy is lost. The resulting ionization and excitation of atmospheric constituents emits light of varying colour and complexity. The form of the aurora, occurring within bands around both polar regions, is also dependent on the amount of acceleration imparted to the precipitating particles. Precipitating protons generally produce optical emissions as incident hydrogen atoms after gaining electrons from the atmosphere. Proton auroras are usually

Villa Escudero Waterfall Restaurant, Philippines

Have you see a waterfall.? Want to eat in a Restaurant Traditional way.? You can do both

Modernization and industrialism could sometimes gobble signs of cultural identity, making us forget what and how things used to be traditionally. Hence, finding ourselves in Villa Escudero can be likened to finding tidbits of what is culturally Filipino during the 1800s.

Villa Escudero, located at San Pablo City in the Philippines, is a fine hacienda-style resort with cozy rooms and a museum that boasts a large number of weird stuff. But the villa’s true attraction is the amazing restaurant at the foot of a small waterfall.

Bamboo dining tables and grass-fringed buffet stations are set a few feet away from the cascading waters of the Labasin Falls. Diners enjoy delicious local dishes such as fish, curry meats and rice, as the sparkling water massage their feet. After lunch guests can even lie against the rushing water-covered wall and get wet.

As you can make out from the pictures below, Labasin Falls is a not a natural waterfall. It is actually a spillway of the Labasin Dam – the country’s first working hydroelectric plant – built by Don Arsenio Escudero in 1929.

A pioneering agriculture industrialist, Don Arsenio Escudero built it to supply his desiccated coconut factory and the Escudero Plantation house, which he and his wife Doña Rosario Adap built in the early 1900s.

The plantation was opened to the public in 1981 as a tourist attraction, offering glimpses of plantation life. The family’s eclectic private collection was presented as a Museum tour. Carabao cart ride takes visitors to the resort area, surrounded by park-like setting while being serenaded by locals. Dining is, of course, under the spillway of the Labasin Dam. The dam’s reservoir has been turned into a lake where visitors go rafting in native bamboo rafts. Other attractions include live cultural dance show, sports facilities, and even more restaurants, albeit in dry places.

Glow worm cave, New Zealand

Afraid going  in a dark cave.? What if the cave is Glowing.?

The Waitomo Glowworm Caves attraction is a cave at Waitomo on the North Island of New Zealand, known for its population ofglowworms, Arachnocampa luminosa. This species is found exclusively in New Zealand. They are around the size of an average mosquito. This cave is part of the Waitomo Caves system that includes the Ruakuri Cave and the Aranui Cave.

The attraction has a modern visitor centre at the entrance, largely designed in wood. There are organized tours that include a boat rideunder the glowworms.

The name “Waitomo” comes from the M?ori words wai, water and tomo, hole or shaft. The local M?ori people had known about the caves for quite some time before the local M?ori Chief Tane Tinorau and an English surveyor, Fred Mace, did an extensive exploration in 1887.  Their exploration was conducted with candlelight on a raft going into the cave where the stream goes underground. This is now the exit for the cave. As they began their journey, they came across the Glowworm Grotto and were amazed by the twinkling glow coming from the ceiling. As they travelled further into the cave by poling themselves towards an embankment, they were also astounded by the limestoneformations. These formations surrounded them in all shapes and sizes.
