Travelling the Great Ocean Road Jan 30

Travelling the Great Ocean Road

Travelling the Great Ocean Road

There is no time like now for checking out this magnificent section of Victoria’s coastline. The Great Ocean Road was added to Australia’s National Heritage list in 2011. Unfortunately, due to natural erosion by strong winds and rough seas, parts of the natural limestone stacks and archways have already crumbled away.

The Great Ocean Road was built by returned soldiers after World War I as a war memorial between 1919 and1936. Here is showcased some of our most spectacular coastline runs, extending through several national parks. Stretching from Torquay to Warrnambool, near Portland, the road is a popular route for tourists and there are some excellent walking tracks, making this trip perfect for hikers and campers.

Top 5 Kuala Lumpur Attractions Dec 02

Top 5 Kuala Lumpur Attractions

Top 5 Kuala Lumpur Attractions

While staying at one of the many available Malaysia hotels, you will probably end up in the capital, Kuala Lumpur. This eminently modern and clean city represents everything that Asia is today: high tech and modern but also ancient and tied to millennial traditions. Our top 5 Kuala Lumpur attractions represent that mix of old and new so particular to Asian cities.

5. Sri Maha Sakthi Mhambigai Amman Temple

Yes, that’s a very long name, but Indians love long names. This 100-year-old temple is right next to an ultra-modern megamall in the middle of Kuala Lumpur. This makes for an interesting contrast, especially at night, when the temple is beautifully illuminated. Come for the Indian and Buddhist festivals (the temple serves for both) or simply for the beautiful statues guarding the entrance of the temple. Reflect on the meditating Buddha at the foot of the Bodhi tree or revel in the temple’s architecture.

The Most Glamorous Marinas in The World Nov 14

THE MOST GLAMOROUS MARINAS IN THE WORLD

The Most Glamorous Marinas in The World

As I am sure you are all aware, being a mega, ultra or super-yacht owner can be quite a trial. As well as having to pick out the type and colour of craft you wish to possess, you then have to find somewhere to stick it. One of the great things about being a boat owner is the ability to sail and dock anywhere on earth, but sometimes parking your boat can cost as much as the boat itself. But where are the most exclusive, swanky, downright showbiz marinas on the planet? Here are a few choice selections…

YAS MARINA, ABU DHABI

How do you fancy dropping anchor, sipping champagne from your deck while watching a Formula 1 race right on the doorstep? All this is on offer at the remarkable Yas Marina on the man-made Yas Island, featuring the F1 circuit that snakes around the entire area (so be warned crossing the road if you pop out for a pint of milk). Plus there are a wide array of exclusive stores, gourmet restaurants and towering skyscrapers in this jaw-droppingly posh locale. And if you tire of all this boat-based relaxation, the extraordinary architectural structure that is the Yas Hotel is right outside.

4 Basic Tips for travelling in Australia Oct 11

Australia is an exciting country to explore whilst travelling, but it can also be extremely dangerous. Australia is known for having extremely dangerous flora and fauna, which can cause serious and even fatal injuries. But this danger is easily preventable by thorough preparation and using common sense.

Australia Wild Nature

Regardless of where you’re travelling to, read up on the local area and the dangers within that area. For example, if travelling to Uluru, find out about the local fauna and flora that may present a risk. Do not unnecessarily risk your life by being unprepared.

When investigating your travel destination, take note of the safety recommendations for the area. Also, learn how to respond to potentially life threatening situations. For example, if you are bushwalking as part of some Great Ocean Road tours, learn about various spiders that inhabit the area and how to respond if bitten. That way, if the worst-case scenario arises and you, or you travelling companions are bitten, you know how to respond in this emergency situation. This preparation may save your or your travelling companion’s life.

You should also take note of the weather conditions expected for when you’re travelling. Whilst you may feel comfortable doing some Melbourne tours for example, areas such as Melbourne are renowned for their extreme weather, so be prepared.
