After nearly two decades of war, Liberia, a country lush rainforested covered through the southern flank of West Africa – appears to have finally found a break. With the first woman president in Africa at the head, peace, while still fragile, is taking place and Liberians have been launched with enthusiasm to the task of rebuilding their shattered land.

If Liberia is stabilized and open for travel, intrepid adventurers who offer a fascinating insight into what was previously a wonderfully hospitable society, enigmatic and fascinating. The artistic traditions of Liberia – especially carved masks, dance and storytelling – rivaled those of any place on the continent, and traditional culture was strong. This was especially true in the interior, where initiation secret societies played a central role in growth, and still serve as important reservoirs of traditional knowledge and life skills. For now, most of this cultural wealth remains inaccessible to visitors, and travel independently outside the capital Monrovia in the country is not considered safe.

Dense forests of Liberia, wet, some of the largest in West Africa – are alive with the chirping and singing of hundreds of birds, which are maintained by the company of forest elephants, pygmy hippos and other species filling wildlife throughout the forest floor. Along the coast, deserted white sandy beaches alternate with river deltas and tidal wetlands quiet lagoons, while increasing the interior of the plateau green mountains on the border of Ivory Coast and Guinea.

Although the situation is definitely looking up, it is advisable to obtain updated information on local security conditions before their plans.

Dominica

If you enjoy hiking high in the tops of the mountains or explore the underwater world then Dominica is the place to go for those who prefer hiking boots over high heels and are content with a night life where the music is just the murmur of the forest. Dominica has a surprisingly long drive for such a small island, so it’s best to pick a point or two to explore instead of bouncing. If you can do in the mountains (hiking, bird watching, looking for hidden pools and waterfalls) or water (diving, snorkeling, kayaking), you can do in Dominica. Do not miss the ancient forests of Morne Trois Pitons National Park, home of another Boiling Lake and the spectacular Trafalgar Falls.

In some sandy beaches, but most require a little courage to find and generally there are only a few housing options near maximum. There are no direct international flights and island hopping it takes to get here has kept the packages in the bay. The locals are very friendly, it’s almost fun to lose just to have an excuse to approach people on their portals. Since some of the largest cities in the Caribbean are definitely fear in the capital, Roseau, locals often prevent visitors only wish you a good visit. Rasta culture is strong, and offended by the sight of the Rastafarians take their sacrament may have to cover their eyes once or twice. Dominica is also home to about 2,200 Caribs, the only pre-Columbian population remaining in the eastern Caribbean.

Thailand is often referred to as a land of gold does not, because there is precious metal buried underground but because the country emits a certain glow, either in the fertile rice fields of the central plains, white sandy beaches or the warm hospitality of its citizens.

Thailand’s cool season extends from November to late February. With its low humidity, relatively low temperatures and clear skies, cold weather is the best time to visit, although the normal days of 20 degrees and 30 low could leave in doubt who came up with the term ‘cool’. It is also the peak tourist season, so expect lots of new friends in the most popular locations such as islands and major cities.

First presentations take place in Bangkok, a modern giant screaming traffic, shiny shopping centers and international sensibilities interwoven with devout Buddhism. Chiang Mai, the country bohemian downtown, is unique and precise elements of Thai culture become a classroom for cooking classes and language classes, while climbing in the mountains around Mae Hong Son find stupa-key peaks and villages after Stone Age cultures. Slide the tail of the coast are the evergreen limestone islands of Ko Tao and Kho Phi Phi Don, filled with tall palms angling over pearlescent sand. Thailand’s beaches are stunning, hedonistic and mythic among residents of northern latitudes.
Thailand
People come here to the miners: first perhaps for purely Western concept of R & R. And while they themselves provide for a bronze hue on the sandy beaches are found in the daily rhythm of Thailand a tranquility that is not limited to vacation time. The northeast is a region more suitable for family homes and educational concerts that fast souvenir snapshots: here you can dive deep into the psyche of Thailand, dating a searingly spicy food tolerance and a mastery of this strange tonal language. Welcome to a transformative experience disguised as a holiday.

Island of Gods: Bali

bali islandBali, the famed Island of the Gods, with its varied landscape of hills and mountains, rugged coastlines and sandy beaches, the lush rice terraces and barren volcanic hillsides all providing a picturesque backdrop to its colorful, deeply spiritual and unique culture , stakes a claim to be serious a paradise on earth. With world-class surfing and diving, a large number of cultural attractions, historical and archaeological sites, and a huge range of accommodations, this is one of the most popular island destinations and one which consistently wins travel awards. Bali has something to offer a very broad market of visitors from young backpackers right through the super-rich.

Bali is one of more than 17,000 islands in the Indonesian archipelago and is located just over 2 kilometers (about 1.5 miles) from the eastern tip of the island of Java and west of the island of Lombok. The island, home to about 4 million people, about 144 kilometers (90 miles). From east to west and 80 kilometers (50 mi.) From north to south.

The word “paradise” is used a lot in Bali and not without reason. The combination of friendly and hospitable people, a magnificently visual culture infused with spirituality and (not least) spectacular beaches, surfing and diving have made Bali Indonesia unrivaled number one tourist attraction. Eighty percent of international visitors to Indonesia visit Bali and Bali alone.

The popularity is not without its flip sides like many places in the south of the island paradise once Kuta has degenerated into a congested maze of concrete, touts and scammers extracting life of overcharging tourists. Visibility of the island has also drawn unwanted attention of terrorists in 2002 and 2005, but Bali has managed to retain its magic. Bali is a perfect destination for everyone, and even with heavy traffic, it is still easy to find some peace and quiet, if desired. Avoid the south of the island, if you want a more traditional Balinese and genuine.

One consideration is the tourist season and Bali can be very busy in August and September and over Christmas and New Year. Australians also visit during school holidays in early April, late June and late September, while domestic tourists from elsewhere in Indonesia visit during national holidays. Outside these peak seasons, Bali can be surprisingly quiet and good discounts on accommodation are often available.
