Bawah Island

The Bawah is one of the most gorgeous beaches that you would find in the adjoining regions of Singapore which appears to be a very typical beach that you would often see on postcards and beach pictures. To put it in simple words, it would be the closest to what you could assume an ideal beach to look like. It is located amidst the water between Indonesia and Singapore. The beach is absolutely stunning with all the features of a tropical paradise culminated within one small isolated island. The water near around the island is as clear as it can get. You can gaze deep through the water and witness the marine wildlife in action without diving inside. Even the coral reefs at the bottom of the water can be easily seen from the surface itself. If you are a lover of water adventures and sports, this island would be one of the best options for you as there is everything perfectly poised for any water sports or adventure.

Nikoi Island

nikoiThere are people who don’t like to go inside water and would rather feel pleasure in sitting on the seashore enjoying the view of the blue ocean and fresh air while being seated on a chair of some beachside resort. There are others too who would want to explore the land and the tropical forests. Nikoi Island is a place meant for such people. The island follows a very environment-friendly and sustainable way of development and it is evident with just a glance over the island’s resort which has been constructed with driftwood and long grasses. The power supply is provided by the solar panels. The island has open-air villas and a truly amazing sense of peacefulness that creates a soothing on the mind.

Layang Island

swallow_reefThe Layang Island is one of the most popular destinations for the deep sea divers who would come here to take a breathtaking experience of the marine world at its best. The place is also considered to be a very good one for the biologists who are searching to discover new species of the marine world which are yet to be explored by the human eyes. The place is well preserved and altered from its natural state which always attracts divers as it is all they wish to witness and experience whenever they dive. The place is really at an isolated location on the South China Sea where one can only reach with the help of a flight.

Linga Island

lingga-islandsThe Linga Island or the Pulau Linga is popular for having one of the most beautiful waterfalls of the region, Resun Waterfall. This island has also got the mountainous terrains which make the fall a sight to behold. The mountain located on this island is called Mount Daik which gives a perfectly elevated platform for the waterfall to flow through and fall down. This waterfall is a very beautifully preserved place thanks to the lack of tourists or visitors who do not prefer to visit this island due to its awkwardly isolated presence at some distance from the nearby archipelagos. It is recommended to book a trip to this island in the months of November and December as there is an annual festival celebrated on Mount Daik during this time span. This makes it one of the best choices for the 12.12 sales packages. Remember to apply the KKday Promo Code before paying and ensure the lowest price on your travel package.

5 Interesting Places to Visit During Taiwan Trip

Taiwan is a place that has a few really intriguing and interesting places that can entice any visitor to the core. The capital city, Taipei is a very well developed and urbanized place with all the major centres of the businesses of the region. But beyond the urban locale of Taipei, lies a very fascinating landscape full of natural and artistic harmony.

The place has a lot of things to offer and if you really like to go to all of those places, it is unlikely that you would be able to finish the trip even after roaming around for a month. The better understanding and knowledge of a place helps in reducing the time you spend on a trip while ensuring you don’t miss out on the special attributes that the place can offer to a visitor. If you are planning to have a trip to Hong Kong, here are some amazing deals at Expedia 促銷代碼 and Klook 促銷代碼 to avail the best possible discounts on your travelling bookings.

Taipei 101

Taipei 101Taipei has a very well developed infrastructure and it shows when you look at the tall and handsome skyscrapers all over the place. But the most remarkably eye-catchy building is Taipei 101 with a staggering height of 449 meters that make all other buildings look like dwarfs. This building is the landmark of this city, a point of reference for everything. Visitors are easily captivated while looking around from the open air observation at the top. The building appears as if it reaches the clouds if looked up at from beneath. The special show held during the New Year celebrations with spectacular fireworks and lighting is simply incredible.

Laimei Green Reef

ReefThis is a place located in the Shimen District offers a very unique sight. The place has verdant reefs which have been cut irregularly by the waves and volcanic lava. This place is somewhat similar to a large colony of emerald seaweed but it is stunning never the less. The place looks the best during the months of April and May when the landscape is full of algae flourished on the rocks.  The only thing to keep in mind before visiting this place is to check the favourability of tides.

Shi Fen Waterfall

Shifen WaterfallThis waterfall is also known as the Niagara Waterfall of Taiwan and you can see why so. While you are about to reach this place, there’s a bridge that you would need to cross and its suspension based designing is something that will grab your attention for sure. This is the largest waterfall of this region and it gives a very calm and soothing effect to a person’s mind. The way to the top has been very aesthetically developed with artistic sculptures of mythological deities which make the place even more beautiful. You must not miss the joy of the rhythming beats of the natural waterfall from the second level.

Golden Waterfall

Golden WaterfallThis waterfall lies in the region which is known for the mines of gold and copper that were mined in the past under the Japanese occupation. Although the mines are no longer functional, yet the impact that the mines had is still present. This waterfall is an astonishing wonder of nature with its natural golden colour that shimmers under the blazing sunlight. Adding more to this visual delight, the gorgeous Mt Keelung in the backdrop of this waterfall gives the sight of perfection that nature could create. The scientific research that was conducted to examine the reason for this golden colour concluded that the rain seeping through the mines along with the metal deposits resulted in this copper yellow coating over the rocks.

Yin Yang Sea

Yin Yang seaThe Ying Yang Sea is situated just beside the golden waterfall and it also shows the same kind of effect. Have you ever wondered about a golden coast? This is a coast that looks light golden in colour near the bay and colour gradually comes into the actual ocean blue colour as you look deep down the horizon towards the endless ocean. The interesting part about the golden colour of the bay is not at all due to the same phenomenon as the golden waterfall. It is rather due to the geological factor caused by the excessive quantity of Iron Pyrite near the bay.

Doi Inthanon

Let me make it very clear at the beginning itself that if you have time to finish just one hiking trail, this should be the one you must choose. Why? There are many reasons for this. First of all, it is the highest mountain peak of Thailand standing at 2,565 metres height above the sea level. The mountain has a road built instead of hiking trail but that does not take away the natural beauty of this popular tourist destination. You would also get to experience one of the most beautiful nature trails when you reach near the top of this mountain range. This place is just a couple of hours ride away from Chiang Mai.

Doi Pha Hom Pok

This mountain is one of the least visited places by hikers because of its remote location. It lies nearby Chiang Mai and is the second highest amongst all the mountains in Thailand. This place has the highest campground from where the hiking towards the summit start. The overall distance of this hiking trail isn’t much longer as it finishes within 4 kilometres only. But the distance doesn’t take away the fact that the mountain has an incredible scenic beauty along with few dripping waterfalls. This mountainous forest is also a home to a diversity of wildlife and plants.

Doi Ma Muang Sam Muen

This mountain offers a tough steep trail and hiking on this mountain is one of the more challenging ones. The other important factor is the distance which is 18 kilometres and thereby makes it an overnight trek. The mountain has a very misty atmosphere which is magical, to say the least. But why I would recommend to take up this challenging hike is because it ends up with a very amazing view of Pitugro Waterfalls, the highest waterfall in the country.

Doi Chiang Dao

This mountain trail is often considered to be amongst one of the best one-day hiking experiences of Thailand. This mountain is the third highest among all and the hiking trail gets steeper towards the top. Therefore, this uphill hike is not suitable for those who are hiking for the first time in their life. The roundtrip to this mountain could take up to 10 hours with some rest in between.

Phu Chi Fah

This mountain is close to another mountain range known for hiking, Doi Pha Tang. There is a good possibility to complete both the trails within a day itself if you could plan that way. The entire region has a heavenly misty surrounding. There are places where you could actually feel the clouds roaming around you and towards the top, you would even see yourself above the clouds. To witness such a great scenery is really soothing to eyes. The misty surroundings characteristic to this place is an experience you might not want to miss.
