Mombasa Kenya by Nafisa Rayani

With hundreds of beautiful, captivating holiday destinations around the world to choose from, the question that comes to mind is, "What makes Mombasa, Kenya one of the world's most popular tourist destinations?"

Kenya's second largest city, Mombasa is an island on the country's Eastern coastline that borders the azure Indian Ocean and is home to idyllic palm fringed beaches with soft brilliant white sands. With relatively warm weather all year round, it is the ideal destination for the holiday maker looking for a memorable getaway.

Mombasa is a picturesque culmination of intriguing history and tradition combined with modernity. The city's rich cultures that are still remnant today are as a result of the Portuguese, Arab, African, Persian and British influences over the decades. Fort Jesus, built by the Portuguese in the late sixteenth century in order to guard the Old Port of Mombasa is today one of the area's most popular tourist attractions. Mombasa's history relics are apparent today especially in exotic Old Town Mombasa with its narrow winding streets, intricately carved Swahili doors and women clad in traditional 'bui-bui'. Many of the hotels that dot the coast of Mombasa have been constructed to resemble Swahili villages or have buildings that are infused with Arab inspiration.

However, Mombasa isn't just an island that is steeped in its own culture and history. Modern Western influences are evident in the city where nightclubs are pulsating with music that is both local and cosmopolitan, and eateries that offer cuisines ranging from Italian and Chinese to Indian and traditional Swahili gastronomy. The majority of the natives speak English and the local Swahili language, making travel to this area less daunting for tourists. The North Coast of Mombasa is a hub of activity, with numerous large commercial beach hotels and resorts offering water sports and beach activities, as well as nightclubs and casinos. There are animal sanctuaries and nature trails, plenty of shopping opportunities for locally made handicrafts and fabrics and much to sightsee in this area. The South Coast also has a few large hotels along Diani beach, but offers more secluded private beaches such as Tiwi that has quieter accommodation away from the crowds and is ideal for a couple's retreat. The South Coast is also known for its diving and snorkelling and, in particular, the dolphin dhow safari excursion to Wasini Island.

Whether visitors to Mombasa are young or old, couples or groups, families with children or business travellers, there are options for both activity-filled scenes as well as quiet, secluded beaches to suit their preferences and it isn't difficult to see why this island pulls in the number of tourists it does each year.

Tourist Destinations to See With Your Bali Car Hire by Fransiskus Hendri

Millions of people each year spend their vacations on the island of Bali, the wealthiest island in Indonesia and one that continues to grow as a popular destination for international tourism. Predominantly Hindu in a nation that is majority-Muslim, the island of Bali has retained a unique blend of the Hindu and native animist cultures. Its ceremonies, rituals, and more than 20,000 temples have earned it the nickname "Island of the Gods" - and many of those temples are popular sightseeing destinations for visitors who traverse the island using a Bali car hire.
A Bali car hire is simply the most sensible way to ensure that you are able to visit every site you wish to see on the island. With no railroad infrastructure and little by way of mass transit, travelling by car is the most efficient way to get from one place to another. One four-lane express, the Ngurah Rai, traverses the large population centers of the southern part of Bali, providing quick and easy access to various cities, temples, and other sites of interest.
Your Bali car hire can safely get you to such tourist destinations as Lovina, Jimbaran, and Sanur. In Lovina, you can experience the majestic beauty of sandy beaches formed by black volcanoes, as well as some of the most gorgeous coral reefs in the world. Jimbaran is home to a well-sheltered beach that is surrounded by seaside resort buildings. Sanur's beaches and resorts are popular destinations for many older visitors and their families.
For a day of shopping, followed by a night on the town, it is hard to resist driving your Bali car hire to Kuta. The area s also home to some of the finest surfing to be found on the island. Seminyak is another location with many beaches and resorts, and a site with some of the island's most chic restaurants and clubs - always a hot spot for young visitors to Bali. For a more traditional and culturally enriching outing, Ubud offers a range of dance, art, museums, and craft shops - providing a great deal of the unique Bali flavor that most visitors want to experience.
Of course, the cities are not the only destinations to which smart visitors steer their Bali car hire. A visit to Mount Agung will allow you to view the Besakih "mother temple", while a trip to Bukit Peninsula enables you to view the spectacular temple of Uluwatu - that literally hangs from a cliff! For a day at the mountain lakes, you can travel to Bedugul and feast your eyes on the renowned temple of Ulun Danu Bratan. Or, if your tastes run to the more naturally explosive things of life, the live volcano at Kintamani - Mount Batur - always offers the potential for a truly fascinating day.
With your Bali car hire, you can schedule almost any activity on the island. Golfing, snorkeling, hiking, and diving are all available for visitors, as are trips to almost every area of this island of more than 3 million people. If you're a bird lover, be sure to make time for the national park of West Bali, where you can observe the exotic variety of feathered creatures that Bali has to offer.

The Silk Road - China's Most Exotic Travel Destination by Brian Lawrenson

The Silk Road is rapidly becoming one of China's most popular tourist destinations. Heaps of travel agents and tour companies offer tours there in 2010. So why is it so popular? But first let's examine where the Silk Road is and how to get there?

Starting at the time of Christ, the Silk Road extends from Xian in central China to either the Middle East or Europe. In fact there are many routes, some to Moscow in the north and those into India and Pakistan in the south. Just like travellers in the time of Marco Polo - thirteenth century - the ancient trade routes still exist although the type of goods sold and the method of transport have changed. The reason why the Silk Road starts/ends in Xian is that it was the ancient capital of China and internal trade routes, in many cases along the Yangtze and Yellow Rivers, were already established to distribute goods within China.

Many tourists start their Silk Road journey in Beijing. The Imperial City, the Great Wall of China the many places of historic interest will make a 3-5 day stay worthwhile. Add to it a little shopping and time to experience northern Chinese cuisine and you are ready for your Silk Road experience.

How to get there Most international airlines fly into Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong. There is a lesser choice of flights to and from western China and most of these are based out of the capital of Xinjiang Province, Urumqi.

China has rail connections north to Mongolia, Hong Kong, Tibet and west to Moscow. For the more adventurous there are multiple rail links into Vietnam.

Coach access from/to Pakistan is available along the Karakorum Highway, apart from November though April, when it is closed. Delays and discomfort can be part of this route so be prepared. Travel in Pakistan needs serious consideration. We spent 12 wonderful days travelling there in late 2007 but with the rise of the Taliban the risk for westerners has increased dramatically.

Visas are required for all access points to China and I recommend that these be obtained well in advance.

How to get around Train travel is popular in China although it does have an extensive coach network. Of course you could fly but that would really defeat the main purpose of visiting China - to meet the people. Train travel is reliable, fast and cheap. "Soft" sleeping compartments either for four or on some routes for two persons are available or if you want to join the locals try the "hard" class, but unless you are on a tight budget, it's not recommended. You will need assistance buying the rail tickets as few station staff speak English. The timetables and options can be complex. Ask a travel agency with China experience to help.

Many companies offer tours along the Silk Road. Most of these use a combination of coach and rail travel. International companies include GAP, Peregrine, World Expeditions, Travel Indo-China. You'll find these using Google. Some tours include a tour leader and guide. Standards of accommodation and comfort are reflected in the pricing.

Another option is to hire a guide through Chinese companies like Xinjiang Silk Road Adventures in Urumqi. Local guides can be provided on a per day basis or overall for a tour, at very reasonable prices. Tour guides are required to be licensed in China.

When to Go China is a vast country covering eight time zones. It's climate varies considerably. Summers can be hot and sticky and the winters extremely cold so the best months are in Spring and Autumn. Consult a good guide book for the temperatures that you can experience at the time of your planned travel so that you can dress appropriately.

Silk Road Highlights To get the most out of a Silk Road journey it should not be rushed. Allow a minimum of 14 days in addition to any stay in Beijing. If you are including Uzbekistan add another ten days:

The major attractions are:

• Xian the Terracotta Army and other historic sites

• The Labrang Monastery in Xiahe, in the Gannan Tibetan Autonomous region

• The Fort and Great Wall of China Museum at Jiayuguan

• Dunhuang for riding the two humped Bactrian camels in the vast sand dunes. Nearby are the Buddhist Mogao Caves set into a desert backdrop of the Flaming mountains.

• Urumqi has an excellent Xinjiang Regional Museum. Two hours away is the spectacular lake district of China, the Heavenly Lake. Here you'll find Kazakh people living in yurts and grazing their herds of horses, sheep and goats. If you have the time, stay overnight and experience the food and hospitality of the locals.

• Turpan is famous for its grapes, and nearby are the ancient cities of Gaochang and Jiaohe, the Bezeklik thousand Buddha Tombs and the underground water systems called karez that link Turpan to much needed snow melt from the distant Tian Shan mountains.

• Kashgar, a trade route city for thousands of years. Visit the old city before it's demolished and attend the famous Sunday animal market which although dusty is a great spectacle.

• Those with extra time may find the southern Silk Road oasis towns of Yarkand and Khotan of interest. This area is less visited but does have some interesting side trips including camel safaris and treks into the Taklamakan desert. This predominantly Uyghur area has much of interest for those that are looking for something a little different.

• A short train journey or flight will take you across the western Chinese border and then on to Tashkent the capital of Uzbekistan. Here the real gems of the Silk Road are to be found in the ancient cities of Samarkand, Bukhara and Khiva. Coach travel in Uzbekistan is comfortable and affordable, although the rail line west offers an alternative.

If you are looking for a vacation with a difference and you are a little adventurous, then travelling the Silk Road should be on the top of your list. It is safe and affordable. And it is a hugely rewarding experience. Yes, it will have its challenges but what a story you can tell when you get home, not to mention your fantastic digital photographs of the highlights of this scenic journey.

You could, like Marco Polo, even write a book about your experiences. I did. It's called Following Macro Polo's Silk Road.

Travel to Coyhaique in Southern Chile by David Ven

Coyhaique is the Capital of Chile's distant XI region. The city was founded in 1929 and had a slow growth until the construction of the Carretera Austral in the eighties. Since then, Coyhaique has begun to grow to reach the present population of about 45000 inhabitants. The word Coyhaique means "landscape of lakes" in the language of the original inhabitants of the region the Tehuelches.


The best time to visit Coyhaique is in the austral summer season, from late November to early April. In winter the temperatures could be extremely cold with the possibility of snowfalls. In the City itself, it's worthwhile to visit the Reserva Nacional Coyhaique, 5km north of the town. In this natural reserve you can find many native and exotic flora as well as a wide variety of birds. Besides, you can visit the small local museum in the pentagonal Plaza de Armas. However, it is in the beautiful scenery, full of mountains, rivers, lakes and forests, which surrounds the city where the main tourist attractions are found.


Yes, Coyhaique is synonym of outdoor activities. The rivers Simpson, Aisén and Baker are excellent for fly fishing. There are also some lakes where the trout, thanks to the plentiful of food and the unspoiled water, got amazingly developed. However, because of the geography of the landscape these lakes are best fished on a boat. Rio Simpson has also excellent sections to the lovers of rafting and kayak, some parts even are tamed enough to let to the occasional tourist enjoy rafting too. Another activity near the town of Coyhaique is horse riding, an ideal way to enjoy the nature and fauna of the region. At last, Coyhaique has nearby two Reserves: Recerva Nacional Rio Simpson and Reserva Nacional Cerro Castillo that are fantastic for trekking.


Coyhaique and the Aisén region were neglected as tourist destinations for many years because of the lack of population and the inaccessibility of the region. Today these same reasons turn Coyhaique into a paradise for nature enthusiasts from all around the world.
