Free! "Sights & Attractions" in Istanbul, Turkey
The Yeni Cami , meaning New Mosque, is a simply beautiful structure, a mosque, situated on the famous Golden Horn of Istanbul. It is sitting on the edge of the bridge to Karakoy and adjacent to the Spice Market. This structure is an Ottoman Imperial Mosque that was partially reconstructed in 1660 and opened in 1665. Like every other mosque its minarets are imposing and are like a song of we…

Ridiculously Expensive "General Tips & Advice" in Manila, Philippines
On October 14, 2014, at around 5 pm or so, I was walking up Roxas Blvd along Manila Bay, towards the ferris wheel. There were many people hanging around, some just lounging, some were fishing in the bay. I had just passed Aristocrats Restaurant when I was approached by 2 women, a chubby light-skinned Filipina with a round face, that looked to be in her early 30's and about 5 feet tall, with dyed l…

Expensive "Hotels & Accommodations" in Queen Elizabeth National Park, Uganda
Katara Lodge is south of the Kyambura channel, near Queen Elizabeth National Park. It is outside the park boundary so you don’t have to pay park fees to stay there unless you plan to enter the park. It has one of the best views I’ve ever seen from its open fronted bar and small infinity pool. The lodge occupies a stunning location on the wall of the escarpment that marks the boundary of…

Average priced "Sights & Attractions" in Chiang Mai, Thailand
As there are many Thai cooking schools in Chiang Mai I thought I would write a review about the one I chose as I was very happy with the class. I may have given it 5 start if I enjoyed cooking more, but truth be told, I'm not much of a cook. Our instructor Miw (also the owner)was so cute, entertaining and funny. Included in fee (about $30 US which seemed to be average) was a hotel pick up. The cla…

Cheap "Hotels & Accommodations" in Dalhousie, India
On a recent business trip to India, I ended up in the old British Army vacation town of Dalhousie in the southern Himalayas. Perched at about 6,000' above sea level, Dalhousie is hardly in the thick of the mountain range, but it is certainly unique in that the triple canopy jungle environment allows for quite interesting flora and fauna as well as some pretty breathtaking views. Taking full adva…

Cheap "Hotels & Accommodations" in Naha, Japan
I arrived at Naha domestic international airport early in the morning and caught the monorail to Asto station, from there it was a 10 minute walk up the hill to the hotel, one thing i will say is i found out later there is a bus directly to the hotel and only costs 230 yen, it is definately worth it as carrying a suitcase and a bag up the hill in 34 degree heat is a bit much i think for anyone. …

Expensive "Hotels & Accommodations" in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia
Sunjin Grand is an interesting Hotel that would satisfy a wide variety of tourists that aren't too concerned about location. For its value, (about $100 a night depending on Mongolian currency), I found the room and all the facilities to be very spacious and comfortable. No issues with heating particularly during my visit last week where night temperatures drop to below freezing. At first impre…

Ridiculously Expensive "Restaurants, Cafes & Food" in Copenhagen, Denmark
If you should name one restaurant in Copenhagen which has really been able to stand the test of time and remain one of the best - if not the best when it comes to a classic eating experience in the city - there really is only one restaurant which comes to mind. Kong Hans Kælder (King Hans Basement). This place has been a feature on the Copenhagen dining scene since it was created in 1976 - and…

Expensive "Hotels & Accommodations" in Kulusuk, Greenland
While traveling in Iceland, I decided to take an overnight trip to Greenland, since it was relatively close by (less than a 2 hour flight). Hotel Kulusuk is the only hotel in the village, leaving no other choices. One tip I recommend if you are staying for a short visit in Greenland, is to leave your luggage in the rental storage lockers at Reykjavik's municipal airport, and just take a back…

Expensive "Hotels & Accommodations" in Vancouver, Canada
After three flights (Athens-London, London-Montreal and Montreal-Vancouver) and many hours in aircrafts and airports, we found the power to use metro for our movement from the airport until hotel. Finally, Park Inn hotel abstained only 4-5 blogs from metro station. My booking included 2 king size beds, but the supervisor in reception told us that the room we had kept included only a double bed. Li…
