Every summer the Architectural Institute of BC hosts guided walking tours of some of Vancouver’s most vibrant neighborhoods. The cost is a mere $10 per person and offers a really neat perspective on this animated city. I assure you, it’s a really great value for the price.
Whether you’re here on holiday or you’re a long-time resident, this tour will surely prove to be informative and enjoyable. At the very least it will be a good photo opportunity for tourists and locals alike. Continue reading
Other than Phuket and Ko Samui, which have their own airports, expect to travel by boat or ferry in Thailand if you plan on doing any island hopping. And let’s be honest, who goes to Thailand and doesn’t intend on exploring any of the tropical islands or stunning archipelagos?
Ko Samui was the first beach destination on our Thailand itinerary. We were definitely enchanted with this initial sampling of bright turquoise water Thailand has become overly famous for. So much so, in fact, that we did little else during our stay on this island besides frolick on the beach soak up the sun’s rays.
What an absolute gem of a hotel we happened to stumble upon when booking our Phu Quoc Island accommodation. Blue Paradise Resort had only JUST opened at the time. It was so new, in fact, that we couldn’t find any reviews or pictures online, and none of the island’s taxi drivers were able to take us to the correct location.
To be honest, part of me was a tad skeptical that this hotel really even existed. But we reserved our rooms through Agoda, and I’d never been left out on the streets without a place to sleep when booking through Agoda before. So we took a chance on this little start-up hotel, and man did we ever luck out.
The Phu Quoc Night Market is one of the island’s “can’t miss” activities. Especially if you’re a seafood lover.
There are actually two night markets in Duong Dong town. The old one (Dinh Cau) and the new one (Bach Dang). They are both just a couple streets away from each other. So it’s no trouble at all to go back and forth between the two.
