Moorea is Tahiti’s sister island, with green covered mountains surrounded by a turquoise lagoon that protects the coast between coconut trees and quiet beaches. It’s clearly a good approximation to paradise, with the added attraction that is often a much more affordable than other havens like Bora Bora . As we enjoy this beauty.
In this area are extinct volcanoes. They emerged in the midst of a tropical sea and as in most of the islands of Polynesia, and the thousands of years gave time to deploy a paradise.
In practical terms a mountainous landscape surrounded by a turquoise lagoon separated from the sea by a reef, as part of the archipelago of the Society Islands. At first glance, the images idyllic sites may well illustrate.
The Atlantic island of Lanzarote is one of Las Palmas, the eastern province of the Spanish autonomous community of Canary Islands . In 1993 it was the first island in the whole of the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve declared nature now seems bizarre and mystical.
The cooled over millions of years of volcanic lava determines the landscape. Lonely and barren it looks – green spaces are usually found only in the hotels. But exactly this structure is so special and attracts thousands of tourists who finds the island’s ultimate holiday paradise.
Lanzarote has to offer these wonderful experience to tourists: In addition to unspoiled nature and small traditional villages affected, they expect endless soft sand beaches in gold or black. In the Timanfaya National Park and Chinijo Archipelago you cant just marvel at the variety of Lavaformen but also observe numerous species.
There are many cultural centers, which takes care of the preservation of nature in Lanzarote and provide visitors with a lasting image of the island. They describe the special relationship of the population to its unique volcanic environment and provide a comprehensive overview of the culture.
The symbiosis between art and landscape is also evident in the works of the famous artist, architect and environmental activist César Manrique . He has contributed much to the preservation of the historical heritage and the protection of nature in Lanzarote.
Great places you will not find on the fourth largest and northernmost Canary Atlanktikinsel. Arrecife, the capital, is home to just under 60,000 residents already half of the islanders.
The island has its own island council (cabildo insular) and is divided into seven municipalities: Arrecife, Haria, San Bartolomé, Teguise, Tias, Tinajo and Yaiza.
Tenerife is the largest area of the Canary Islands which has almost 1 million inhabitants and the most populous of Spain. Landmark of the island is the volcano Mount Teide, which rises majestically in the middle of the island and the climate significantly influences.
Same with other Canary islands it’s also a popular holiday destination, not only in water but also in the countryside it has many ecologically valuable and historically influenced attractions.
At 3,718 meters high, Teide, is the highest peak in Spain and therefore already on approach to Tenerife. In the 2,000 m peak of Teide, a huge caldera (crater) stands out with 17 km diameter. As a natural weather divide it also determines the climate of the island.
The mountain region around Mount Teide is Tenerife’s largest national park, and since 2007 on the UNESCO World Heritage Site . In the past, the area numerous film productions served as a beautiful backdrop.
One can either take the Teide walk or a cable car that runs to about 200 m below the top. From there, branch out several trails, one leading to the summit. This promotion is only possible with the permission, which are obtained on the Internet or through the Office of the National Park Service in Santa Cruz de Tenerife. Without permission, there is the possibility of La Rambleta (cable car) to the viewpoints La Fortaleza and Pico Viejo ascend. They offer wonderful views over Tenerife and the other islands of the archipelago.
Despite its many free attractions, museums and art galleries – from the National Portrait Gallery to the British Museum – London is a notoriously pricey city. We’ve covered how to get the cheapest tickets to London’s top attractions before but with this post we’re asking a simpler question: If you had just $10 (or £6.40 ish) in your pocket, what would you spend it on? We asked travelers in London for their ideas.
We played backpacker for the day and scoured the city for a list of great things to do when you’re staying in London on a budget. We were pleasantly surprised at the more unusual things you can do in London with a bit of spare change.
1. Beigels in Brick Lane (£2)
In London’s trendy East-End, Brick Lane is a popular place to soak up a bit of Brit-cool. There are edgy bars and clubs, vintage clothing stores, and infamous curry houses lining the streets. But after a night on the grimy-but-oh-so-hip tiles, London’s clubbers head to the Brick Lane Beigel Bake – perfect for soaking up the booze with a Jewish ‘beigel’.
Cooked in the traditional way – boiled and then baked – these are the most authentic bagels you will ever eat. Chewy and warm, and served with all the typical fillings, from smoked salmon and cream cheese to pastrami. Open 24 hours a day, a plain bheigel is only 15p, and the classic salt beef is only £2. At these prices, you’ll have change spare to squeeze in a slice of cheesecake, or any other sugar-soaked pastry, for around 60p.
2. Full English Breakfast (£5)
If the beigel wasn’t enough to prevent that hangover, spend a fiver on a traditional English breakfast – otherwise known as ‘the Builder’s’ or the ‘fry-up’ . As its loving name suggests, this British ‘delicacy’ (just like fish and chips, pie and sausage and mash) is heavy with cholesterol and calories – but who cares when it tastes this good!
For an authentic but cheap English breakfast, forget the skinny lattes and croissants of more upscale breakfast venues and look out for a ‘greasy spoon’ cafe – the plastic tablecloths, wipe-clean booths and gruff builders downing cups of tea are all part of the charm.
Each ‘Full English’ varies from place to place, but expect a greasy mash-up of bacon, eggs, sausage, beans, fried tomatoes and mushrooms, fried bread or hash browns, black pudding, and toast with lashings of butter, all washed down with a strong cup of tea.Places you can get a Full English for a fiver include:
Dakin’s under London Bridge 7 London Bridge Walk
The Other Side in King’s Cross 246-248 Pentonville Road
Phoenix Cafe in Brixton 441 Coldharbour Lane
3. A Monu-mental view (£3)
The Monument is one of London’s most underrated tourist sites – just next to Bank tube station on the north bank side of London Bridge, this doric column tower (built to commemorate the great Fire of London in 1666) offers dizzying views of the city. Once you pay the small admission fee, brace yourself for a 61 metre climb up the spiral stairs to the top.
The tiger tourism is an expensive entertainment that has become a status symbol. However, tourism will significantly be restricted because the Supreme Court of India has recently announced a series of measures to prohibit tourist activities in the reserves of tigers in the country.
This has been known in a press release that the court said that states have not created protection zones in the habitat of tigers will be subject to severe penalties.
India is home to more than half of existing tigers worldwide, which in numbers, means about 3,200 copies most of whom live. From the year 1970, reserves created especially for the conservation of the endangered tiger, which tourism is a side effect.
The reserves are small and are affected by the disruption caused by tourism can not compete with large African savanna parks that are able to withstand a lot of people.
People do not realize the damage they inflicted on the ecosystem: hundreds of hotels, shops, businesses and tourist entertainment initiatives operating within the reserves in order to provide visitors the opportunity to observe animals in their natural habitat.
Tourists, whether in vehicles or mounted on the backs of elephants, destroys the tall grass, and drive the big cats prey that hunt for food.
This measure certainly hurt some interests, and will affect tourists who had already booked their place in one of the many hotels that have been established from the tigers tourism.
