4 Things to see in the Philippines

 

Every moment of your vacation should be special. Memorable. In order to make that happen? You will need to do some planning. Take a trip to the Philippines for example. You want a sure-fire way to maximize your time there. This can be tricky. There is so much to see and do. The solution? Have a well thought out travel itinerary on hand. Not sure where to begin? What to do during your trip? Start with these four must-see attractions. They are guaranteed to make any Philippines vacation feel special, memorable, and downright exciting.

Philippines_1

  • Banaue Rice Terraces

 

There is nothing like natural beauty. Seeing picturesque views up close and personal. One of the best places to do just that? At the Banaue Rice Terraces. These are 2000 year-old terraces that were carved into the Iguago Mountains by the indigenous people. The terraces are a whopping 5000 feet above sea level. This spot is still taken care of by locals. They still plant vegetables and rice on the terraces. As for visiting the Banaue Rice Terraces? Tourists can see them in person (be sure to bring along your camera!) or partake in some of the on-sight attractions. There are sightseeing trips, visits to the tribes, traditional healing methods, and more.

 

  • San Agustin Church

Feel like adding a little history to your trip to the Philippines? Then you will want to make time for San Agustin Church. This is a truly remarkable example of Colonial and Baroque architecture. The Roman Catholic Church is located in the city of Intramuros in Manila. That makes it easy to get to. (There are also many other historic buildings in this area. So keep your eyes peeled!) During your time here you can take pictures of the exterior, go inside, and reflect on all the beauty life has to offer.

  • The Island of Borcay

Another area to visit in the Philippines is the island of Borcay. It can be found 315km south of Manila. This island is known for its tourism. There are beautiful white sand beaches, a lively nightlife scene, resorts, and more. Many people come here to relax and get away from it all. You can, too. Make time for activities like parasailing, scuba diving, kite surfing, swimming, and more. There are many different ways to fill your time. Morning, noon, and night.

Philippines_3

  • Mayon Volcano

Now for another must see spot. The Mayon Volcano (also referred to as Mount Mayon) is well-known thanks to its symmetrical cone shape. The volcano itself as well as the surrounding area is a national park that can be visited by both locals and tourists. The volcano is 2463 metres tall and has had 49-recorded eruptions. What can you do in the area? It is possible to climb the volcano but you need to register to do so. Other activities you can enjoy include hiking, camping, bird watching, and even taking some unforgettable vacation photographs. Something to keep in mind? Be careful when you visit. Rainy season runs from November to January – and conditions can be dangerous.

3 Reasons to Get Excited About EURO 2016

 

Summer is always full of excitement. All of the warm weather means more time spent outdoors, relaxing days on the patio, and plenty of fun activities. This year? Summer also signals the return of the UEFA European Championship. That’s right. It is time to get your head in the game. EURO 2016 is sure to be a memorable event. Running from June 10th to July 10th, 24 teams (expanded from the original 16-team format) will participate. The host country happens to be France, but you don’t have to live there to enjoy the games. Here are 3 reasons to get excited about the upcoming EURO 2016 championship.

This Year? You can Get into Action. Sports fans from around the globe are eagerly awaiting the start of EURO 2016. Understandably so. With so many talented teams battling it out…things are bound to get interesting. Guess what? You don’t need to see it all go down in person to have a good time. It’s true! The EURO 2016 Championship will be just as thrilling to watch on TV. Or stream online. How you watch is not the important part. All that matters is that you have fun and get involved. Not sure how to go about it? Simple, take this opportunity to cheer on your favourite team…and put your money where your mouth is. Sports betting is a fantastic way to get in on the action. To make the game more interesting, head to http://sports.williamhill.com/bet/en-gb/events/euro-2016-northern-ireland to get started. To live a little than usual and experience the intense fun!

EURO 2016 Gives You the Chance to Show Your Team Spirit. Do you have a favourite team? Someone you are rooting for? Good. That is the great thing about EURO 2016. It gives you the opportunity to showcase your team spirit. You can watch the matches while wearing a team jersey. Or the team colours. Or even painting your face the appropriate team colours. Anything and everything that gets you pumped for the match is fair game. You don’t have to wait until game day. Show your team spirit when you are out and about. Who knows? Your beloved team shirt might spark a conversation (or debate) with a fellow fan.

 

It is a Great Excuse to Get Together with Friends. These days life is busy. And it seems to get busier and busier as the days go on. That can make it extremely challenging to carve out time for our family and friends. Planning a get-together that works for everyone? Next to impossible. Not on game day. Somehow? Everyone can seem to make time for a lively match. Yes, EURO 2016 is an action packed sporting event. But it is so much more than that. It is also a great excuse to get together with friends. This is the perfect opportunity to plan a watch party. Or you could head to a local sports bar with a few of your closest pals. There is no better way to enjoy the EURO 2016 Championship.

Visit One Of These Belize Beaches

 

It is only natural. Most of us spend our time dreaming of endless sunshine and relaxing days at the beach. Whether it is the middle of winter or the beginning of summer…. there is nothing like the fantasy. A beautiful beach in an exotic location. Make that fantasy a reality by spending time in Belize. This country can be found in beautiful Central America. Belize is a must-visit travel spot for many reasons. One of the most significant? It has a magnificent coastline that connects to the Caribbean Sea. That means beaches, beaches, and more beaches. Which are the best? The most popular? Take a look at our list of unforgettable Belize beaches.

Belize_1

The Placencia Peninsula. No list would be complete without the Placencia Peninsula. This is the largest beach in the mainland of Belize. (It stretches across three different villages, the Maya Beach, Seine Bight, and Placencia Village.) Its size alone makes it the most popular beach to visit in Belize. Here you can enjoy white sand, crystal clear water, and large palm trees. Lay out your beach towel, work on your tan, or cool off in the water. Once you’re done? You can make the most of all the extras in the area. There are plenty of restaurants, places to shop, and even a bustling nightlife scene. Whether you want to soak up the sun or let loose…you can.

Belize_2

Ambergris Caye. There is something special about this next Belize beach. Ambergris Caye can be found off the northern part of Belize. It is actually the largest island in the area. This is a beloved spot for tourists to visit thanks to the luxurious atmosphere. Not to mention the breathtaking turquoise water. Visitors here can dive in right off the dock. Or you can unwind on one of the best areas of the beach. They can be found at Ramon’s Village and The Villas at Banyan Bay. (Don’t worry about going near a resort. All of the beaches in Belize are open to the public!) Here you can go snorkelling, fishing, or diving. It is totally up to you how you spend your time at Ambergris Caye. Just make sure you are having a fabulous time.

 

Hopkins Village Beach. Another standout spot in Belize is Hopkins Village Beach. Here you can learn more about Garifuna culture. How? There are incredible restaurants nearby (serving fantastic local dishes) as well as places to bike ride and people to meet. There is of course, a stunning beach to enjoy as well. The Hopkins Village Beach can be found in the Garifuna village of Hopkins. It stretches on for five miles and offers a world of beauty. Picture palm trees, warm sand, and calm waters. It is the picture of perfection. This beach tends to be a little quieter. That means you can sit back and relax. Uninterrupted.

 

There is nothing like a day at the beach. It helps us to relax and unwind…and appreciate just how beautiful nature can be. Are you ready for the trip of a lifetime? Add Belize to your must-visit list.

What You Need To Know About Fernsehturm

It’s incredible. The way the Fernsehturm tower looks from afar. This television tower adds a unique flair to the Berlin skyline. Coming in at over 1,200 feet tall, there is no way you could miss it. The original intent of the tower was to have something to stand as a symbol of Berlin. The Fernsehturm certainly does that! Over the years it has become a well-known part of central Berlin…. being featured in both movies and television shows. It’s not hard to figure out why. The tower is massive. It is by far the tallest structure in all of Germany. That’s not all. It is also the second tallest structure in the European Union. Whether you are checking out the view of the Berlin skyline or enjoying the sights from the top of the tower, the Fernsehturm is truly remarkable.

Check Out The Sights From The Top Of Canton Tower

 

Sometimes? All you need is a little perspective. Life can seem chaotic and crazy. Particularly when the streets are busy, the traffic is grid locked, and the city is full of noise. Visiting Guangdong, China is a special experience. There are museums, attractions, and spectacular views to enjoy. The best way to step back and see it all? Is from the top of the Canton Tower. Suddenly that traffic jam seems picturesque. That sea of people fades away. The noise is gone. All you can see is an endless stretch of beauty. Give your vacation a little perspective. Make time for the Canton Tower in Guangdong, China.

Canton Tower_1

What Is The Canton Tower?

The Canton Tower is something special. Originally it was built for the 2010 Asian Games. Now, it is an unforgettable part of the city skyline. If you find yourself in this part of the world…. a visit is an absolute must. Wondering why? This observation tower boasts stunning views of the city below. It stands at 1,967 feet – with a body that is 1,476 feet tall and a mast that is 492 feet tall. This makes it one of the tallest towers in the entire world. (Even taller than the CN Tower in Toronto!) No wonder this is such a popular tourist attraction in China. It gives locals and tourists the chance to see the sights like never before.

The Design Of The Canton Tower

Get out your cameras! One look at the Canton Tower will take your breath away. It has a bold spiral design that winds its way up to the very top of the tower. According to the architect who worked on the project (Mark Hemel and partner Barbara Kuit designed the Canton Tower), most buildings and skyscrapers had strong and straight features. They wanted this design to be elegant and soft. He said, “we wanted to create a female tower, being complex, transparent, curvy, and gracious. Our aim was to create a free-form tower with a rich and human-like identity that would represent Guangzhou as a dynamic and exciting city.” That they did. The Canton Tower is a unique and intricate work of art…. just as much as it is a structural building. Yet another reason that the Canton Tower is special, unique, and interesting.

Canton Tower_3

Visiting The Canton Tower

There is plenty to do at the Canton Tower. At the base of the tower there is visitor information about Guangzhou, facts about the city, tourist attraction and tourism services, and more. Then there is the tower itself. It has observation decks (where visitors can enjoy a birds eye view of the Guangzhou New City and the Pearl River), a revolving restaurant (where over 400 guests can eat well and check out the sights), shops, a 4D movie theatre, exhibition areas, conference rooms, and more. There are many ways to pass the time at the astounding Canton Tower. At night? You can watch the tower light up. It glows light from top to bottom. Every day the tower lights up a different colour. So, be sure to have your camera ready once the sun goes down.
