In Asia, you can find lots of options. Orient is a fascinating island consisting of many countries. You can find western developed countries in Asia like Japan and South Korea. Similarly Vietnam and Myanmar will need more bravery from the traveler.

Certain Hurdles That Come To The Way:

Many fresh travelers may experience sleep deprivation, anxiety, depression and perhaps a culture shock as well. In order to avoid this you need to search the whole destination.  Its climate, culture and customs must be known to the adventurous. Or at least he has a guess about it. Traveler should know that language and food would be the greatest problems while traveling to Asia.

Getting Familiar To The Visiting Area:

The internet facility is a very good source to prepare the person before he meets his so called troubles. He could have a glimpse of land, people, and the food. Getting guide books is also a very good option to familiar with the conditions. The easiest would be to hire a guide via any agency to make the most of the trip. You should book some  tours such as Myanmar Tour Packages at http://www.myanmartours.net/myanmar-tour-packages.html

Preparations Before Traveling:

Yes, you have to consider some easy going steps so that you would not be the victim in foreign land. Take small amount of foreign currency in your pocket.

This will help you to escape from the thief’s eye. Use sealed water bottle for drinking purpose. Keep iodine tablets and perforated tablets when using tap water. Don’t take any beverages with the ice.

Places to visit in Asia: Thai Land, Hong Kong, Dubai, Malaysia, Myanmar, India, Singapore..v.v

Checking The Personal Fitness:

A traveler should take a regular check up to his family doctor before going to the trip. Vaccination should be taken in order to save body from the epidemic disease in the foreign country. Precautions should be made against common disease in Asia like hepatitis, malaria, dengue, rabies, typhoid. People will enjoy if nothing happens seriously. All the diseases are cured before the time.

Enjoy Trip:

Only this way one can enjoy fully in the trip. Asia will give you good memories if you are prepared before an Asian trip. The Bible also focuses on traveling. Isaiah 40:26 says, “Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by number.” God will be happy if we wander to see his wonderful creations.

Alternative things to do in Amsterdam

When you enter the city you already feel the specific aroma which this city have and then you realize that this is the beginning of a new experience. Whether you like museums, hipster shops or food markets, it looks that Amsterdam have it all. Also, everywhere you look it looks that something is worth seeing, experiencing or photographing. Once you visit Amsterdam you never come back the same, this city touches your soul and heart.

I made a list of things you should definitely experience while visiting Amsterdam if you want to feel more local.

Bicycle

Let’s begin with the bikes, because cycling is a part of culture in Amsterdam. There are more bikes than people in Amsterdam and there is even saying about canals in Amsterdam that it is filled with mud, bicycles and water. Every year Amsterdam’s Water Authority, fishes out between 12,000 to 15,000 bicycles from the canals.

bicycles in Amsterdam

If you want to feel the local vibe you should definitely rent a bike. When you see the traffic of the streets it can make you wonder if you really want to ride a bike, but if you follow the instructions everything will be fine. Personally, I felt that it will be even safer, because cyclist really hate distracted tourists and they don’t even stop if they see that tourists are blocking their way. If you are a pedestrian sometimes you have to look more than three times before crossing the road.

There are a lot of rental shops around so there shouldn’t be any trouble finding it. I tried Donkey Republic bikes, because you can control your bike via app.

The Red Light District

Obviously, everybody is interested in the Red Light District, right?

Everything what you heard about this district is true. There are red lights and there are women in their lingerie standing near the window inviting men to come inside. If you did not know not only weed is legalized in Netherlands, but also prostitution. Of course, there are other entertainment in this district like live sex shows, prostitution museum, sex shops, tattoo salons, art galleries and of course coffee shops. Do not mistaken coffee shops with cafe, in coffee shops you can buy legal weed in cafe you’ll get coffee.

Canal ride

Most of the people in Amsterdam spend their time by the water or in boats.

amsterdam canals

Boats which you can meet and which are buzzing in Amsterdam canals every day and night can be divided into 7 types.

Sightseeing boats.  Actually those boats looks a bit boring, you will never hear a laugh from there or see a person smiling. Usually, those boats are full of tourists who are listening about city’s history through the headphones.

Houseboats. If you want to have an extraordinary experience you can rent a houseboat and live in it. It is more expensive than a regular apartment, but it is worth it. Some of these alternative houses once were cargo vessels and now they are  converted into houseboats, other houseboats were already built for this purpose. You can find all types and styles of houseboats from scandinavian minimalism to hipsterish looking boats.

houseboats

Taxi, ferry or public transport boats. Boats which goes from one location to another.

Alternative touristic boats. Touristic boats which have guides and some drinks, where you can chill and learn about the city from local people.

High speed boats. Those are a bit dangerous, because almost anybody can rent it and if they speed too much then accidents could happen.

amsterdam canals

Pedal boats. Pedalos allow to see Amsterdam at a slower pace and you also burn off some calories from all the Dutch beers and waffles.

Any kind of floating thing. It looks that every local have their own boat and it completely doesn’t matter how it looks. It can be just a rubber boat or canoe.

NEMO (science museum)

You can easily access the roof of the Science Museum NEMO which is the highest city square in the Netherlands. The view is incredible and if you catch the sunset it will be the highlight of your trip. In the summer sometimes there are exhibitions and all year round there is a café where you could have some drinks.

Bloemenmarkt (Flower Market)

Bloemenmarkt is the only one floating flower market in the whole world. Isn’t it amazing? You will definitely find a variety of flowers, plants and if you travel on Spring you can buy a huge bouquet of tulips for almost nothing.

Jordaan

Jordaan is the main, trendy neighbourhood which is the part of Amsterdam. It has narrow canals, cosy pubs, stylish restaurants. Most of the canals and streets in this area are named after flowers and streets. Get lost in this neighbourhood and be ready to take pictures, because everything looks here astonishing.

Europe’s highest swing

If you are a thrillseeker you have to try these swings. You will swing in 100 meters high, back and forth on the edge of the tower. Enjoying the view of Amsterdam while adrenaline flows in you. I suggest you to book your ticket before.

5 Best Must Have Tools during Traveling

Got a big trip coming up? If so, you’re probably scrambling around and trying to decide what to pack. Since travel can be stressful enough without having to decide what to put on our “To Pack” list, I’ve gathered together the things that will make my trip more enjoyable and hassle free. Read on to see my top picks for must-have tools for fun and stress-free travel.

My Smartphone

Since I use it all the time at home, why not use it all the time on a trip?  A smartphone can get us access to all sorts of travel-related apps and features. We can check the news, access emails, upload pictures to Facebook, and tweet about our travels all with just our phone and access to Wi-fi (if we don’t want to pay for data outside the region). I can’t imagine living without it wherever I go.

A Sat-Nav App

One of the main anxieties for many people when they are in a new place is how to get around without getting lost. The best way to handle this fear is to have a good satellite navigation app with up-to-date information about the place we will be visiting. There is a plethora of free apps for the major operating systems, including iOS, Android and the new Blackberry 10 OS. However, many ursers recommend apps like Waze or OpenStreetMap, which receive regular updates from communities of users. Should definitely have this app on our phone and don’t worry if we get lost!

A Photo Editing App

Want to decorate a Facebook page with stunning pictures of our trip, to the envy of all our friends? A good photo-editing app will help us turn pictures that are “just okay” into winning shots that do our trip justice. Aside from the ubiquitous Instagram, we can also get high-quality effects from apps like Hipstamatic, which offers a beautiful selection of filters.

We can also perform more sophisticated edits with apps like Photoshop Express, or work with RAW files with apps like Digital Negative. Trust me you will want to be there again after looking back at those pictures!

TripIt: An App to Stay Organized

TripIt helps us keep all of our travel documents in one place. All of our e-tickets, car rental papers and hotel reservations can be stored in our phone and presented at the right time, therefore saving us the trouble of shuffling through a folder of hard copies. We can even upgrade to TripIt Pro for real-time updates on flight delays and traffic updates, as well as access to all of our Frequent Flyer miles across multiple accounts. I find it is very helpful and keep me stay organized!

A Currency Converter App

Traveling internationally? If we’re going to be dealing with multiple currencies, then a converter app will definitely help us keep track of how much money we’re spending. Apps like XE Currency Converter not only allow us to convert between different currencies, but they also give us daily updates of the exchange rates for all of the world’s currencies. We can also download helpful apps like MyAccountant to help manage our finances from the road. Don’t be surprise if the prices in that country are way to expensive in our currency!
