Ko Phi Phi is made up of two islands, Phi Phi Don with its endless beaches and Phi Phi Le, a private enclosed area girdled by sheer cliffs. Previously (and still is) a temporary residence for sea gypsies, Ko Phi Phi has since turned into a favorite spot for diving lovers from all over the world. The coral reefs in the clear waters ensure a spectacular sighting and the colorful fishes swimming in their natural habitat is a sight to behold. Situated 48 km from Phuket and 42 km from Krabi, the island is only accessible by boats. Tours to Phi Phi Le is commonly done on board kayaks where tour guides would take you to the Viking Cave, which is rich with its prehistoric paintings of things resembling Viking longboats. Most tours would include a visit to the cliffs where swiflets' nests are harvested for bird's nest soup, a Chinese delicacy throughout Asia. Formally a quiet Muslim fishing village, Phi Phi Island now meets all touristy demands, including restaurants, diving schools, and hundreds of overpriced souvenir shops.

Krabi



Tourist Attractions of Krabi

Ao Nang beach

Ao Nang beach

This is Krabi’s main resort area, comprising a long stretch of beach, half of which has a backdrop of striking karst cliffs and the other half lined with resorts and tourist amenities along the beachfront road. Ao Nang is quite pleasant and a relaxed spot to enjoy your holiday. It’s not overcrowded like Patong in Phuket, and has a far more natural feel, but you’ll have to wander along the beach to avoid the noisy longtail boats that come and go from this point. Sunsets here are particularly good, with offshore islands as a fitting

Krabi Town

Krabi Town

Krabi Town

The small provincial capital that provides a glimpse into real Thai life. The town has largely escaped commercial tourism due to its lack of a beach, but it’s an interesting place to visit, having colourful markets, a pleasant walking path that follows the estuary mouth and lots of restaurants offering up local favourites, with seafood being a speciality

Railay Beach

Railay Beach

Considered one of the most spectacular of all the Andaman coastal locations. This idyllic spot is a peninsula that canonly be reached by boat, as it’s separated from the mainland by sheer limestone cliffs. A few quiet resorts are situated between the two crescent–shaped beaches. In all, there are a number of beautiful beaches to choose from, but Phra Nang attracts most of the day–trippers as it features an ancient shrine inside a cave. Those who are fit can hike up a steep path to the top of the karst and gaze down into a hidden sinkhole lake in the middle

Koh Lanta Marine National Park

Koh Lanta Marine National Park 
Home to Chai Leh, who are known in English as sea gypsies. They typically live in small settlements and are nomadic, earning a living from collecting shells and fishing. The Chai Leh have their own language and set of spiritual beliefs, which are animistic in nature.
At the northern and southern extremes of Koh Lanta, the mountains are covered by virgin rainforest. On the west coast, there are numerous beaches that are wonderfully situated and also heavily developed but in a natural way, such as Khlong Dao, Khlong Khong, Khlong Nin and Phra Ae, providing views of spectacular seascapes. Along the western side and at the northern tip near Laem Kho Kwang, you’ll find coral reefs. Also at the northern tip’s Saladan pier, there are banks, shops, eateries and tour operators

Papular Places in Paris

Who doesn’t know Paris? A city that is almost always associated to romance, love and adventure.

What to see in Paris? Wow, lots of things. The most famous sites are: The Eiffel Tower, The Museum of Louvre, The Museum of Orsay, The Montparnasse Tower, The Notre Dame of Paris, The Sacré Coeur Basilica, Avenue of Champs Elysées, Garden of Luxembourg, Garden of Tuileries, The Versailles Palace and garden, La Defense, Center of Georges Pompidou,… and lots of other big sites

But choose your own places, according to what you like and to what interests you. Let me give you additional tips for your visit in Paris:
* To save some budget, avoid using taxi. Use the Metro and RER service (the subway of Paris), or the bus. But due to the traffic, I’d rather take the Metro. You can find Metro stations everywhere, but always watch your bags, watches, or cell phones!
* You can ask for free the map of Metro and bus lines everywhere! But preferably ask for it when you arrive in Paris in the airport… You can also ask for it in the Metro stations, some big department stores (for example Galeries Lafayette), etc…
* Learn a little French before coming… Just some little useful expressions to say: how do you do, how much does it cost, I would like some water, etc… It will be very useful!
* I know that Paris sounds glamorous… But just bring your comfortable clothes (according to the season), comfortable shoes (girls, our high heels are not made for the streets in Paris), one or two formal clothes if you want to watch opera or ballet, and you’re ready!
* What to eat??? Hah, welcome to France my friend. Try and dare your self to eat French food. If you’re afraid to wrong-order, ask the waiter first what it is. One suggestion, if you go to restaurants, ask for ménu, which doesn’t means the menu card, but a meal consisted of entry, main menu, and a dessert. Usually it’s cheaper to buy ménu than to eat à la carte, which means to choose one by one the entry, the main menu, and the dessert from the menu card/book. If you want to save some budget, try French famous sandwiches, or pizza, or Kebab (sandwich from Turki), or panini (sandwich from Italia), or the famous French crêpes!

Taj Mahal Building in India

on Tuesday, January 19, 2010

Taj Mahal
 Taj Mahal

Taj Mahal

The Taj Mahal base structure is a large, multi-chambered structure. The base is essentially a cube with chamfered edges and is roughly 55 meters on each side (see floor plan, right). On the long sides, a massive pishtaq, or vaulted archway, frames the iwan with a similar arch-shaped balcony. On either side of the main arch, additional pishtaqs are stacked above and below. This motif of stacked pishtaqs is replicated on chamfered corner areas as well. The design is completely symmetrical on all sides of the building. Four minarets, one at each corner of the plinth, facing the chamfered corners, frame the tomb. The main chamber houses the false sarcophagi of Mumtaz Mahal and Shah Jahan; their actual graves are at a lower level.

The marble dome that surmounts the tomb is its most spectacular feature. Its height is about the same size as the base of the building, about 35 meters, and is accentuated as it sits on a cylindrical "drum" of about 7 metres high. Because of its shape, the dome is often called an onion dome (also called an amrud or guava dome). The top is decorated with a lotus design, which serves to accentuate its height as well. The shape of the dome is emphasised by four smaller domed chattris (kiosks) placed at its corners. The chattri domes replicate the onion shape of the main dome. Their columned bases open through the roof of the tomb and provide light to the interior. Tall decorative spires (guldastas) extend from edges of base walls, and provide visual emphasis to the height of the dome. The lotus motif is repeated on both the chattris and guldastas. The dome and chattris are topped by a gilded finial, which mixes traditional Persian and Hindu decorative elements. The main dome is crowned by a gilded spire or finial. The finial, made of gold until the early 1800s, is now made of bronze. The finial provides a clear example of integration of traditional Persian and Hindu decorative elements. The finial is topped by a moon, a typical Islamic motif, whose horns point heavenward. Because of its placement on the main spire, the horns of moon and finial point combine to create a trident shape, reminiscent of traditional Hindu symbols of Shiva.

The exterior decorations of the Taj Mahal are among the finest to be found in Mughal architecture. As the surface area changes, a large pishtaq has more area than a smaller one, and the decorations are refined proportionally. The decorative elements were created by applying paint or stucco, or by stone inlays or carvings. In line with the Islamic prohibition against the use of anthropomorphic forms, the decorative elements can be grouped into either calligraphy, abstract forms or vegetative motifs.

The interior chamber of the Taj Mahal steps far beyond traditional decorative elements. Here the inlay work is not pietra dura, but lapidary of precious and semiprecious gemstones. The inner chamber is an octagon with the design allowing for entry from each face, though only the south garden-facing door is used. The interior walls are about 25 metres high and topped by a "false" interior dome decorated with a sun motif. Eight pishtaq arches define the space at ground level. As with the exterior, each lower pishtaq is crowned by a second pishtaq about midway up the wall. The four central upper arches form balconies or viewing areas and each balcony's exterior window has an intricate screen or jali cut from marble. In addition to the light from the balcony screens, light enters through roof openings covered by chattris at the corners. Each chamber wall has been highly decorated with dado bas relief, intricate lapidary inlay and refined calligraphy panels, reflecting in miniature detail the design elements seen throughout the exterior of the complex. The octagonal marble screen or jali which borders the cenotaphs is made from eight marble panels. Each panel has been carved through with intricate pierce work. The remaining surfaces have been inlaid with semiprecious stones in extremely delicate detail, forming twining vines, fruits and flowers.

Travel to Borobudur Temple In Magelang Yogyakarta Indonesia

on Thursday, January 14, 2010

Borobudur temple is a ninth-century Mahayana Buddhist monument in Magelang, Central Java, Indonesia. The monument comprises six square platforms topped by three circular platforms, and is decorated with 2,672 relief panels and 504 Buddha statues. A main dome, located at the center of the top platform, is surrounded by 72 Buddha statues seated inside perforated stupa.
Borobudur Temple
Borobudur Temple
The name 'Bore-Budur', and thus 'BoroBudur', is thought to have been written by Raffles in English grammar to mean the nearby village of Bore; most candi are named after a nearby village. If it followed Javanese language, the monument should have been named 'BudurBoro'. Raffles also suggested that 'Budur' might correspond to the modern Javanese word Buda ('ancient') – i.e., 'ancient Boro'. However, another archaeologist suggests the second component of the name ('Budur') comes from Javanese term bhudhara (or mountain).
Borobudur Temple

Borobudur Temple
Approximately Borobudur Location 40 kilometers (25 mi) northwest of Yogyakarta, Borobudur is located in an elevated area between two twin volcanoes, Sundoro-Sumbing and Merbabu-Merapi, and two rivers, the Progo and the Elo. According to local myth, the area known as Kedu Plain is a Javanese 'sacred' place and has been dubbed 'the garden of Java' due to its high agricultural fertility. Besides Borobudur, there are other Buddhist and Hindu temples in the area, including the Prambanan temples compound. During the restoration in the early 1900s, it was discovered that three Buddhist temples in the region, Borobudur, Pawon and Mendut, are lined in one straight line position.
Borobudur Temple
It might be accidental, but the temples' alignment is in conjunction with a native folk tale that a long time ago, there was a brick-paved road from Borobudur to Mendut with walls on both sides. The three temples (Borobudur–Pawon–Mendut) have similar architecture and ornamentation derived from the same time period, which suggests that ritual relationship between the three temples, in order to have formed a sacred unity, must have existed, although exact ritual process is yet unknown
