I often save the air tickets of every trip I have taken with my friends and family. Sometimes, when looking at each of them, I feel like all the emotion and memories are kept inside the small piece of paper. In my latest journey, my companions were the two little kids, Amy and Alex, travelling with their mother. It was amazing as I as was able to stay awake for hours during the flight, eagerly listening to the adventures of these little travelers. Among their stories, the one about globe impressed me the most. When they were asking their mom where they will go the next time, she just gave them the small globe, smiled, and let Amy point at one of the place on it. Amy and Alex were so excited, screaming with glee when their mom told them about the next place. The kids together made a plan to save money, and prepare for their next trip. From time to time, the family had traveled around the world with that globe. They showed me that no matter where we go, one should plan their voyage with love so as to make every trip into an exciting page of life's book. The book of my life is marked with the air tickets I have collected over the years and the memories attached to each of them. It has been said that life is a journey, not a destination. The purpose then, is to travel to new places, experience and learn new things, relax after working days, or to find yourself, your passion and love.

Have you got your next journey planned?

The "Magic"

OF WAGASHI CAKES Although its history dates to 300 BC, making Wagashi (*) wasn't considered art until 1867. In 1926, Wagashi was officially named and differentiated from confectioneries that were introduced from the West.

W

Text: Que Lan - Photos: Various photographers

agashi is a compound word in which "wa" is a word used to denote anything Japanese or {the harmony} and {gashi} sounds like {kashi} traditional Japanese sweets. Not only denoting Japanese confectioneries, Wagashi also means the sweetness of harmony. Wagashi cakes are served in Japanese tea ceremonies to increase the light fragrance and not too bitter taste of matcha. The artisans' ingenuity is the magic to turn pretty cakes into true works of art. The harmony in ingredients, tastes, colors, sweetness, and ductility, all together make the cakes special. The main ingredients include red beans, green beans, white beans, seaweed jelly, and sugar. The most important and difficult stage is preparing the bean filling. It takes about 3-4 days to soak the beans in water, remove their hulls, stew, filter, marsh, and process them with mochi rice. Throughout the same time the Wagashi is

prepared. To shape the cakes, the chef uses various hand tools such as sieves made of wood and rattan to make stems, clippers to trip beautiful sharp petals, cloths to create smooth soft folds on the cake, as well as cake molds and other shaping tools. Simple kitchenware such as chopsticks or spoon can also be used to create small details and make Wagashi sophisticated. Thanks to the passion and creativity of artisans, hundreds of types of Wagashi have been developed. Among them is Namagashi which is not only favored for its eyecatching designs based on the four seasons' beauty, but also because it represents the signature colors of Japan. Its crust is made with steamed glutinous flour while the filling is often made of red beans. One of the crucial ingredients contributing to Namagashi's sweetness is wasambon, a special type of sugar made from sugarcane found in the Tokushima region of Japan. Namagashi is usually in the shape of

natural things such as cherry blossoms, apricot flowers, maple leaves, or snowflakes. In Namagashi, the nature is lively, beautiful, and special linked to the identity of Japan. To enjoy Namagashi, you should use a bamboo skewer to cut the cake instead of using hands directly. Unlike Vietnamese who often cut cake into 4 pieces, the Japanese avoid number 4 (which sounds like death) by cutting a half of the cake to eat first and finish the other half later. Although it takes a lot of time to prepare wagashi, you are advised to enjoy them within one day to best enjoy their taste and the love that the artisans give you through the cakes. You can enjoy wagashi at: BENKAK JAPANESE RESTAURANT 2nd floor, Nikko Hanoi (serving Wagashi with seasonal Kaiseki sets) 84 Tran Nhan Tong, Bui Thi Xuan, Hai Ba Trung, Hanoi Tel: 04. 3822 3535 - Ext: 4260 Email: fboffice.nikko@ hotelnikkohanoi.com.vn TRAVELLIVE

February, let her roam like a child on the wild land of Cam Ranh which is home to the white sand Bai Dai beach, turquoise waters, and an array of fish, clams, oysters, and snails. Located right on the beautiful Bai Dai, The Anam Resort is a destination for meeting friendly and interesting locals of the tropical coastal area. There are male receptionists with cute accents of three regions of Vietnam, and a caring waitress who always welcome travelers with a lovely smile. The highlights of the Anam not only lie in its unique 19th century Southeast Asia design but also come from its concept of "Sweet Dreams µ la carte" offering guests the best sleep with goose down leather pillows.

Pink roads of apricot blossoms Similar to the pink roads of vivid cherry in Japan, this season in Dalat shows scenery covered with the color of cherry-like apricot blossoms. The petals are everywhere, from main roads in the city center such as Tran Hung Dao, Le Dai Hanh, Le Hong Phong, and Trieu Viet Vuong to villas and resident houses as well as Tuyen Lam Lake and Ta Nung Commune, popular tourist areas. Apart from captivating roads of flowers, don't miss a chance to visit poetic landscapes in Dalat, admire majestic mountains, enjoy fresh air, and worship at sacred monasteries and temples such as Truc Lam Zen monastery, as well as Linh Son, and Linh Phuoc temples. Those who love unique architectural styles should visit Dalat Cathedral, Domaine De Marie church, Cam Ly church, and the Dalat's College of pedagogy which exhibits exceptional ©Ppana European architectural beauty. To get a panoramic view of the city, the best choice is travel to Lang Bian Mountain which is considered the "roof" of Lam Vien plateau at the height of 2.167m. Conquer the peak by trekking through pine forests or travel by jeep and take in the breathtaking beauty of the surroundings with undulating roads lined with houses and pine forests tucked densely in the fog. • Outfits: One can experience four seasons a day in Dalat.

Pure white plum and apricot blossoms

n February, Moc Chau Plateau gets more vivid with the white color of plum flowers covering every path in Loong Luong, Pa Pach, and Phieng Cang villages, as well as in the pine forest in Ang village, informing residence of the arrival of a new season of vitality.

"Underground" Stars in Waitomo

U

nderground caves full of glow worms were previously thought to be just Maori legend. Until 1887 when the Waitomo Glowworm caves were first explored by local Maori Chief Tane Tinorau accompanied by an English surveyor Fred Mace. The caves, which are thought to be 30 million years old, open a new mysterious world. Located outside the town of Waitomo in the North Island of New Zealand, the Waitomo caves hide themselves underground, winding along the Te Anau River and boast system of stalactites and stalagmites. New Zealand explorer Lawson Burrows described the caves "like a page out of a space fiction book; a weird place, but not at all frightening". According to Maori legend, Lake Te Anau inside the caves was created by Te Horo, a Maori chief who accidentally discovered his wife's infidelity. His angry face was reflected in the water. At the same time a torrent burst forth, drowning the village and forming Lake Te Anau. To first discover the caves, the explorers had to dive in a stream emerging from a rock buttress. After pushing themselves underwater through the rocks, they surfaced in an incredible cavern of Arachnocampa Luminosa glow-worms, a species native only to New Zealand. The glow worms light up the caves like bright blue stars. Why don't you start your spring of journeys with an adventure exploring the "underground galaxy" - a real world of Avatar Pandora in New Zealand?

The country is renowned for ancient relics and historic stories about the Phoenician, Aragone, Roman, Greek, and the knights of St. John, as well as the remnants of famous wars between European Catholics, the Otttoman Empire, the success and failure of Napoleon, and World war II.

If you are interested in architecture then Malta is a feast with architectural works from a broad array of different cultures, to leave you enraptures. Some evidence of Middle Eastern styles, some other nuances of Northern African colors, and some places influenced by European architectural, all together create the unique feeling of Malta. Visit Mdina's old quarter, also known as Cittµ Vecchia or Cittµ Notabile, where everything seems to remain as it was hundreds of years ago. Dating to the 16th century, the capital of Malta, Valletta, is considered as "the richest historical city in the world" and "a natural museum" preserving works and historic relics from centuries past, from the great paintings of the Crusaders to ancient stonework foundations underground.

After taking in the rich history, sunbathe, go surfing, relax and enjoy the Azure Window on Gozo island - one of the most beautiful places on the earth. The Azure Window is a masterpiece formed by the relentless effors of nature. The work consists of unique archshaped stones where you can sit to view the small bays, green hills, and steep cliffs of Gozo. Much simpler than Malta island, Gozo offers white cliffs, red-orange sand beaches in sunset lights, and a perfect turquoise sea in Ramla Bay. Don't forget to enjoy Ftira, a special flatbread with a hole in the center. With oil, tomato, garlic, and onion, Ftira in Gozo is said to be the most delicious Ftira in Mediterranean. • Studio: Movie lovers around the world, especially fans of the film Troy, will be fond of the Troy studio built at Fort Ricasoli on Malta Island, scenes in Mellieha, a small town in the north of Malat, and Comino islet. Malta is also the setting place of Popeye. The studio is still completely intact. • Food: There are many restaurants and cafes serving delicious foods and wines. You should try Al Fresco dishes to enjoy the signature taste of the Mediterranean, especially in summer.

Vietnamese culture is richly woven with mystery and fables. Some of the fables are all too true though, like the intriguing mystery of The M'nong tribe. In their world, elephants play a huge role in their lives, symbolizing wealth, power and strength of spirit. Text and photos: Rähahn C. TRAVELLIVE

The elephants are highly revered to an incredible degree and are, therefore, treated like human beings in this tribe. M'nong people coexist with elephants, sharing a special bond with the creatures and are well-known for their elephant training skills. Tracking and "domesticating" elephants is a very tricky and dangerous job. The hunters not only require special skills to overcome the challenges of capturing them, but they also need to overcome the adversities that a wild jungle presents. The wild elephants are captured when they are very young and then reared as pets. Having a "domesticated" elephant plays a crucial part in uplifting the daily life of locals and also serves as an important means of transportation for the M'nong people. Traditionally, elephants were symbols of war. The chief of the village often be hear telling amazing cultural stories about how elephants aided in overpowering an enemy. Elephants are not seen as workers but rather as partners in enriching the lives of the M'nong tribe.

The Law for Protecting Elephants The Law of protecting elephants was created by the M'nong tribe. When elephants are not in good physical condition, it's the duty of the villagers to take care of them. This is both a duty and a privilege. People who abuse or eat elephants are duly punished, and those who kill elephants for business or profit are strictly penalized. There are various fines that need to be paid depending on the severity of the crime. Those who excessively abuse elephants pay a fine by replacing it with a cow or another elephant. This law of care applies to both humans and elephants. If, for some reason, an elephant abuses or causes the death of a human, it is killed. The village chief organizes a hearing to discuss the claims with other villagers and depending on the circumstance, a suitable punishment will be carried out.

The 6th Buon Ma Thuot Coffee Festival and Central Highlands Gong Culture Festival 2017 will take place from March 8th to 13th in various places in Lak District and Buon Ma Thuot.


The Ritual for Elephant Health In the town of Lien Son in Dak Lak province, an annual prayer ritual for elephant health is organized during the first month of the Lunar New Year. This tradition has been going on for more than a thousand years. The time of the event depends on the condition of the elephants' health and their owners. Those who attend this event usually bring alcohol or a pig as a gift for the owner.

The Alarming Number of Domestic Elephants According to statistics from 2005, the number of domestic elephants has been drastically reduced from 600 (in 1980) to 165 (in 2005) - Source: eleaid.com.

This alarming number shows how important it is to preserve the population of elephants and to revive the elephant population. The elephants play a huge role in the culture and heritage of the M'nong and a loss of elephants means a loss of cultural heritage and identity for this group.

The Story of Kim Luan, 6 Years Old

T

his photo symbolizes the respect between the M'nong and the elephants. Taken in 2014, this shot was published in more than 40 countries and several word famous magazines such as Time Magazine and National Geographic... What makes this picture even more special is the contrasting opposites of a small girl in front of such a huge wild creature. An interesting fact is that the photographer was unable to get close to the wild elephant, yet the little girl could. The good news is the government of Dak Lak province is determined to preserve the regional elephant population as well as the traditional customs of the M'nong. The local authorities want to help protect the relationship between the M'nong and the elephants. The government is also taking steps to preserve the cultural costumes of this tribe.

Further information: The M'nong: ñ In 2009, the population of M'nong stood at roughly 102,741. They lived mainly in the mountainous areas of the Dak Lak, Dak Nong, Quang Nam and Lam Dong provinces. Other than these, there is a small group of M'nong living in Cambodia. Culture: ñ The M'nong have an interesting collection of mystical stories, slang and idioms. They follow polytheism; the belief in or worship of more than one

god. However, some others follow Christianity. The M'nong love wearing many different kinds of jewellery such as necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and gold rings. Village: ñ The M'nong village is called a Buon. Each Buon has more than 20 families and they are closely connected, forming supportive relationships with each other. The roofs of all the houses are covered with dried grass and the doors and window frames are made from wood

and bamboo. They often live in areas near valleys and lakes forming close relationships with nature. Economy: The M'nong are a slash and burn culture. In particular, those who live near the riverside usually farm rice. According to Mr. Ama Phong, from M'nong Ri©m in the Læc district of Dak Lak, the ancient M'nong didn't use slash and burn cultivation. Instead, they are fishermen and grow rice as well. He says the traditional customs and habits of M'nong

are very similar to the dÍ ethnic group. The main difference is the language between M'nong and the £d™ ethnic groups. + Food: Corn, cassava, sweet potatoes and rice make up the bulk of the M'n´ng main diet. They love sour food such as young bamboo shoots, fish sauce, fermented fish, shrimp and some buffalo meat. Normally, food is marinated and preserved for a long time so it can be used for a whole season.

Spring comes vividly to remote villages such as Phieng Canh, Na Kha, Ta Phinh, Loong Luong, and Ba Phach as they shrug off the blanket of winter and change into their new coat of plum season. Meanwhile, a few branches of peach blossoms are adding their pink color to the painting of spring season in Moc Chau. TRAVELLIVE

In the poetic white cascade of plum blossoms are the rustic wooden houses of the H'mong ethnic people. There are some kids sitting in front of the houses, some other siblings just happily playing with each other as innocent as the land where they were born. There are some little boys riding their bikes along the dirt road or climbing on the plum trees, greeting visitors with the friendliest of smiles. Their giggles spread in the spring air, carried on the breeze like the petals they are surrounded by. Together with their colorful traditional attire, they bring a new atmosphere to the village.

Not only famous for the modern Kuala Lumpur, antique Malacca, and beautiful Penang, Malaysia attracts visitors with enchanting islands as well. One of them is the Perhentian archipelago with two main islands - Perhentian Kecil (small island) and Perhentian Besar (big island) in the northeast of Malaysia adjacent to the southern border of Thailand.

While locals and visitors can enjoy simple traditional food on the first floor, the upper level is home to the region's signature spices Listed as one of the world's 100 most beautiful beaches by CNN, Perhentian will never disappoint you. Immerse yourself in emerald water or stroll down the coastal roads to enjoy the peaceful atmosphere there. The pristine beauty of the small islands will bring you to a new world with colorful coral reefs, vibrant fish and lovely turtles having fun in the ocean.

Kota Bharu, a unique destination

L

ocated in the north of Malaysia, Kota Bharu is the capital of Kelantan state. This is a unique destination for those who want to explore Malaysian culinary arts and the local traditional culture before heading to Perhentian. Separated from the hustle and bustle of modern

cities, Kota Bharu brings you to a nostalgic world with special architectural styles exhibited via museums, culture centers, mosques, and local markets. There, you will have a chance to buy an array of goods, including exquisite silverwares, handcrafts, and batik fabrics well as enjoy delicious street food. On my own trip, after strolling along the center area I visited Gelanggang Seni - the cultural center of Kota Bharu - to learn more about Malaysian architecture and Kelatan culture by partaking in folk games, contemplating pictures, and watching traditional martial arts performances. I also took time to visit the antique castle Istana Jahar and Royal Museum which is home to historic relics and royal artworks from the ancient Islamic dynasties. Since Kota Bharu is a small city, it is quick

and easy to travel to different mosques and historic sites. At noon, as guided by the information desk's staff, I traveled to the suburbs to visit traditional villages which specialize in silverware and textile crafts. After that, I went back to the city and visited the most popular central market in the shape of an octagon. While locals and visitors can enjoy simple traditional food on the first floor, the upper level is home to the region's signature spices, colorful fabrics and silks, along with copper products, and other goods. At first glance, Kota Bharu doesn't have much to offer, but inside this small peaceful city are countless interesting places to attract and entrance visitors. Explore what secret's are hiding behind the city's gates.

Further information: Itinerary: ñ You can fly from Vietnam to Malaysia with Air Asia, Malindo Air, or Malaysia Airlines. ñ From Vietnam to Kota Bharu, you have to transit at Kuala Lumpur (KLIA or KLIA2 with Air Asia) for 3 - 4 hours. Based on your flights, you can stay a night in Kuala Lumpur.

Relax on the beach paradise, feel the music, and enjoy a BBQ party with friends on weekend. What more could you ask for?

Inviting beach paradise

W

hen we were travelling from Kota Bharu to Kuala Besut harbor, our friendly driver told us many stories about locals and how they often visit mosques. He also invited me to experience a prayer meeting. After a 15-minute prayer meet ended, we continued the trip to the harbor. I decided to stay there a night so that I could enjoy nasi lemak, a traditional breakfast with rice chicken, boiled egg, fried fish and sambal sauce, served with a hot fragrant the tarik (hot milk tea). Taking the first ship to the island in the early morning, I knew my time spent waiting was well worth it. The turquoise water waving upon the ship's sides brought me a pleasant feeling and wiped away all my weariness of daily life. I decided to stay in Perhentian Besar (the big island) for its tranquil space, fresh air, and long white sand beaches. A true beach paradise in Malaysia! To completely take in the beauty of this area, I rented a kayak to explore around the islands and its surrounding islets. Then, I started my adventure in the ocean to admire

the beautiful marine life. There are snorkeling and scuba diving tours which last from 3 to 5 hours at various rates. What could be better than feeling small fish touch your skin, swimming over beautiful large coral reefs, and watching big turtles and small sharks swimming around? Perhentian is renowned not only for turquoise water and snorkeling tours but also tropical forests covering the island. Small paths in forests lead you to a new world of diverse plants and animals. I spent a day trekking through the forest with a group of young people. We were captivated by the amazing scenery, fresh air, harmless iguanas, and countless different type of birds. At sunset, I walked along the beach, watching small boats carry fresh seafood from the ocean. Although the island is far away from the main land, food is fresh and delicious. One is best to enjoy grilled meat and seafood for dinner while saving local specialties for breakfast and lunch. True highlight to mention is that there are music parties every weekend night in summer. Relax on the beach paradise, feel the music, and enjoy a BBQ party with friends. What more could you ask for?

ñ From Kota Bhary, buy a taxi ticket at the airport (RM78) to travel to Kuala Besut wharf (for 1 hour). There are 3 ships to the island (7am - 12pm - 4pm). Take a ship to Perhentian Besar - Perhentian Kecil (RM70/round trip) for 45 minutes. ñ When you return from the island, ask the hotel to inform the ship's driver about your departure time. Accommodation: ñ Kota Bharu: Choose your accommodation on booking. com or airbnb.com. You can also go sightseeing in the city in the morning then travel to the island in the afternoon and overnight on the island. ñ Kuala Besut: There are some guest houses near the wharf for about RM65/room/night. ñ Perhentian: Kecil (small island) is a suitable place for group of friends. There are many guest houses and resorts along Long Beach such as Rock Garden Chalet, Matahari Chalet, Maya Guest house, and Shari-La Island Resort. Besar (large island) is great for families or those who prefer quiet place. Barat Perhentian Beach Resort and Coral View Island Resort are among recommended resorts there. F&B: ñ Buy some snacks before heading to the island. There are many restaurants serving all day with reasonable prices from RM7 to RM75/meal. Some notable places to eat are Mama's, the restaurant at Barat Resort, Matahari Chalet, and more. Note: ñ The best time to visit Perhentian is from March to October. ñ There are lots of mosquitoes. You should prepare cream to prevent mosquitos and insects. ñ Bring water proof camera so that you can save amazing moments when diving. You can also rent a camera for RM50/day as deposit and get money back after you give the camera back.

Like Snake Farm, a famous destination in Thailand, a new destination has opened in Nha Trang, complete with unique and bizarre shows.

I was quite surprised when coming to a snake-themed artistic center called Nha Trang Snake Show, a unique destination in this southern coastal community. The center is easily recognizable by its thatched cottage architecture, reminiscent of the Vietnamese countryside. Having been officially open and welcoming visitors for nearly 2 years, the Nha Trang Snake show has been long awaited by many people who have been excited to witness talented performers act with wild snakes. Nipolajs Solovjous, a 30-year Russian and CEO of Nha Trang Snake Show, shared that he used to watch fascinating snake shows in Thailand, and the idea of forming a snake tourism center in Vietnam occurred to him.

BREA TH L ES S AT

Located in the village of Phuoc Dien in Phuoc Dong commune (a suburb of Nha Trang), with a total area of 5.000 square meters, the Nha Trang Snake Show is one of the biggest snake performing art centers in Southeast Asia. It is a joint project with Erawadee Company and the Pattaya Snake Farm (Thailand). The Nha Trang snake show is operated by snake experts, currently exhibiting and introducing 20 different kinds of snakes. The performance of venomous snakes is particularly popular and lively. Here, the picturesque scenery with its many mango trees make guests feel like they are wandering in a peaceful village. We start to explore the center.


While the Snake Farm (Thailand) attracts many tourists with its snake cages and snake performances including catching snakes, playing with snakes and opening their mouths, the Nha Trang Snake Show can create a new feeling for tourists after visiting all corners of this site.

I

n the snake breeding area, tourists can see tightly covered yet well ventilated glass cages with white sand floors for the snakes to slither around in. In the cages are dry stumps which these reptiles can curl around. Moreover, venomous snakes, water snakes, pythons and even salamanders are also included in this sophisticated collection. Nipolajs Solovjous says that the purpose of opening the Nha Trang Snake Show is to drive people towards environmentally-friendly activities and to realize that snakes are useful animals. Snakes are a great source of medicine. Their meat is said to cure neurological diseases, aches, pains, paralysis, convulsion, epileptic convulsion, boils and ulceration diseases. Snake fat is said to cicatrize wounds rapidly and heal burns. Snake blood may cure backaches, while snake bile is used as an anti-inflammatory, an antioncotic, to help rheumatism, treat cold perspiration, manage asthma, reduce high fever and relieve headaches. Snake

venom is also used to treat leprosy, cancer, epilepsy, muscle pain, angina pectoris, arthritis, and neuritis. Their skin can be used for antisepsis, mangy, rot ears, sore throat, children's epileptic seizures and more. While snake awareness is essential to the project in Nha Trang, the show itself is clearly the main event. Audiences enthusiastically wonder how artists can perform with their snakes. With the venue having a 100 person capacity, the stage features a thick layer of glass in the center so that snakes cannot accidentally escape and crawl out. During show time, audiences are asked not to move to avoid attracting the dangerous attention of the snakes. Two performers wearing black clothes and heads wrapped in towels deliver a surprising and thrilling spectacle. Snakes are put on wood barrels with wheels. Everyone is scared when a wild cobra is released from a barrel, but the performers skillfully hold its tail and play with it in different postures. Then comes another poisonous snake, three more and lastly a group of big snakes, each at least 1.5m long, are released. A performer deftly plays with two poisonous snakes in his

bare hands. And what about the third snake? He quickly opens its mouth and keeps it open when it is about to attack him. The python is immediately controlled by the skilled and professional artist. His actions of opening the snake's mouth, taking its venom and distinguishing whether it is male or female, shocks the audience. The performance lasts about 20 minutes, always leaving the packed audience smiling and satisfied. A scuffle between a cobra and a mongoose was another interesting part of the show. Cobras can live together with mongooses because a mongoose can easily eat a cobra without being poisoned. However, the scuffle is ended just before the two are about to engage in a fight to the death. Already attracting many tourists, the Nha Trang Snake Show promises to offer more interesting and thrilling performances to show how mysterious the snake world is. Further information: Ăź The Nha Trang Snake Show is located in the village of Phuoc Dien in Phuoc Dong commune (suburb of Nha Trang). About 1km north of the Phuoc Dong People's committee, after passing Hon Thi quarry. Visitors can easily find the place on the road on the left. Ăź In Nha Trang, please contact the hotel's tour desk for further information.

After seeing the photo of Deu Deuch (*) I've uploaded on Facebook, my Belgium friend surprisingly tells me "I have a Deu Deuch in sky blue, too. I don't think there are Deu Deuchs in Madagascar!" In addition to more than 50-year-old antique taxis running on the streets, Madagascar has more to surprise you.

The nostalgic painting I traveled to Tana - short by Antananarivo, Madagascar's capital - when attending the 16th Francophone Summit. With the participation of 80 leaders from the member states of the International Organization of La Francophonie (IOF), the 16th Francophone Summit was considered the most important international conference hosted by the country since it officially became an independent country in 1960. I could feel the locals' excitement just by looking at their faces. atrick, our driver, enthusiastically showed us the road that was opened the previous day to welcome the event. More police officers were assigned to the streets for security purposes and ensure the smooth flow of traffic. However, it was a hard task as traffic jams are common in this city. "In the upcoming days, wake up at 6am or you will be stuck on the streets", he suggested. We stayed in the city center as all

From the hotel's window, what I can see is a poetic painting of the peaceful life in the 1950s - people going to the church in the early morning, charming girls in high waisted skirt strolling down the street, and especially hundreds of vehicles running from every sloped corner. hotels near the convention center have been fully booked, even though there were many hotels built in preparation of the event. The Grand H´tel Urban was one of them. The hotel, located right in High City in the heart of the city, is so new that we couldn't find it on any online booking websites. Having a chance to be one of the first guest in a newly built hotel made me excited, wiping out all my weariness after nearly 30 hours transiting at Bangkok and Nairobi airports. But the happiness of "already been

here" is really unbounded in the next morning. From the hotel's window, what I could see was a poetic painting of the peaceful life in the 1950s - people going to the church in the early morning, charming girls in high waisted skirts strolling down the street, and especially hundreds of vehicles running from every sloped corner.

The interesting experiences in dealing with the locals begin right from learning their names. Their long names seem to hold a long story about their owners. For example, the surname of Sitrika is Andrianjafimarosoa which means "a happy aristocratic man". My friend Ntrina has a meaningful surname - Miharinavalontsoa which refers to a person who doesn't limit herseft in the boundary of materials but always seeks for a true love.

ocean in southeastern Africa, is the capital and also the economic, administrative, and cultural center of the island country The city's history is associated with the history of the Rova of Antananarivo. In the period from 1610 to 1630, King Andrianjaka built a rova (fortified royal dwelling) on the highest hill and deployed a garrison of 1,000 soldiers to protect and guard the site. The city then was named Antananarivo ("City of the Thousand") in honor of Andrianjaka's 1000 soldiers. The rova, well-known as the Queen's Palace, is one of must-visit destination in Tana as it offers you a great panoramic view of 12 hills embracing the city. In Tana, the most intriguing experience is chatting with locals. The famous author of adventure

Further information: Itinerary: ñ You can fly from Hanoi to Nairobi (Kenya) with Kenya Airways and take another flight to Antananarivo. Cuisine: ñ One of must-try dishes in Antananarivo is ravitoto sy henakisoa which is prepared with mashed cassava leaves with pork and served with rice. Local markets: ñ Thurday morning is when the flea market on the bank of Anosy lake is open. Here, you can meet merchants from different areas and buy second-hand items at extremely low prices. Art market: ñ Visit Zoma concept market to admire and buy creative products by young local artists. Sightseeing: ñ Apart from the Queen's Palace, Ankaditapaka offer a complete view to the city center.

travel books - Dervla Murphy - once said that "Apart from the Tibetans, I have never travelled among a people as endearing as the Malagasy."

During my stay in Tana, I was always greeted with local smiles. They smile at me as if I was a local too! Perhaps, this is the only African country whose majority of population originate from Southeast Asia. When visiting the Queen's Palace, your tour guide will introduce you to a statue of a woman with the typical features of the Madagascar women - Asian slanted eyes and the firm body and curly hair of Africans. As history has it, the human settlement of Madagascar occurred between 350 BC and 550 AD by Austronesian people. While locals thought I was an inhabitant, the scenery made me think I am wandering in Vietnam. It's hard not to think of Hoan Kiem Lake when coming across Anosy Lake especially as it's aboutthe same size. And Tana also boasts purple roads of Jacaranda like the foggy Dalat of Vietnam. At an altitude of 1245m above sea level, the city's weather is always chilly as in early autumn days. It seemed an irresistible pleasure to sit and savor a few glasses of rum with international friends. The essence of this drink is the blend of rum with vanilla, lemon, cinnamon, ginger, or any flavors you like. Like in conversation, it is interesting when participants have different perspectives.

stablished in 1909, the Great Dolomites Road features many parts built entirely by man power due to the lack of technology. It is one of the most important roads in Italy, connecting the country in Southern Europe with Northern Europe. Work began in 1901 with a grand total of 2500 workers set to the task of building the road with the motto "No hotel without roads, no road without hotels". Thanks to convenience in traveling, the Dolomites become one of the ideal destinations for nature loving travelers. During the trip along the Great Dolomites Road, you will be surprised with the breathtaking nature, be excited by lovely towns nestled near majestic limestone mountains, and feel peaceful when watching cows slowly enjoying grass on the quiet meadows.

Cortina - The fairy town

Deep blue Carezza t the height of 1,534m, Carezza Lake is impressive with deep blue water. The lake is always full thanks to the underground water source from the mountain peak. The name Carezza is derived from a word in Latin which means "rainbow lake". According to legend, there was once a beautiful mermaid named Udine living in the lake. So enchanted by Udine, Laterma drew up a rainbow on the lake to seduce her. However, astonished by the beauty and power of Udine, Laterma was scared and broke the rainbow on Carezza. Near the bank, trees with yellow leaves reflect on the lake, while the color of water gets darker. The darkest area, a rich black blue, is the center of the lake which is 17 meters deep. In spring when the mountain ice - melts, the lake's surface is wider, double the total area compared to during the middle of the dry winter. However, regardless of the weather, be it cold winter or hot summer, Carezza is one of the most attractive destinations partly because it is located near the capital Bolzano. Few people know that Carezza also offers amazing wood and that it's the number 1 choice for wood by the world's leading violin and guitar manufacturers.

The legend Cime Peak The image of the majestic Tre Cime with the height of more than 3000m appears in every tourist publications about the Dolomites. Tre Cime is the border between Austria and Italy as well as the boundary between the Italian-speaking region and the German-speaking region in the Alto Adige territory. To reach Tre Cime, we drove from Cortina town, crossed Misurina Lake, and stopped at Rifugio Auronzo. From there, we started a 1.7km trek to the nearest stop to Tre Cime. The imposing beauty of Tre Cime with undulating mountains and discolored forests can't be described by any single word or photos. It is a beauty that one must take in by their own eyes. One must visit the place and get the feeling of being small in the vastness nature.

Further information: Transportation: ñ The most suitable means of transportation to the Dolomites is by train. It takes only about 2 hours to travel by train between Bolzano and big cities such as Munich or Verona, Austria. Travelling by rain allows you to take it the beautiful landscapes through majestic mountains. Weather:

The tranquil Bolzano Nothing could be better than completing your day in the Dolomites by enjoying cuisine and wine in the tranquil capital Bolzano. Because of the local climate, cool weather and lots of rain and frost, grapevines in the Bolzano's vineyards are bended to make sure that clusters of grapes are covered by foliage, offering the highest quality of fruit. If you are familiar with well balanced wines from the Chianti region or tasty wines from Southern Italy, then Schiava, Lagrein and Gewürztraminer will bring you a new distinct impression. The lack of sunshine makes wine in Bolzano less fragrant with fruit flavors like that in other regions. Instead, wine is more sophisticated with different characteristics. For example, Schiava is gentle and youthful; Lagrein is fascinating, while Gewürztraminer is elegant. Bolzano food remains a product of influence from Austria and Germany. There are many bakeries selling German breads and apple cakes, as well as carts selling sausages along the streets. It's hard to find a Chinese restaurant or Kebab on the city which preserves many traditional values as Bolzano.

ñ It's cold in the Dolomites because of the high mountainous terrain. Spring (February and March) is the last period when the mountains are covered with snow. Daytime temperatures are around 7 - 10 oC, and about -2 - 2 oC at night. Therefore, you should bring with you warm outfits, and warm jackets, as well as waterproof hiking shoes if you want to participate in trekking or skiing. Languages: Although it's a popular tourist destination, Alto Adige is the area with the smallest number of immigrants in Italy. Thus, all places are safe and serene. You can communicate with locals in English, Italian, or German. Activities: ñ Apart from the mentioned destinations, you can buy a ticket to go skiing in Dolomites for 50EUR per day. For details, please visit http://www. dolomitisuperski.com/en Notes: ñ If you don't want to rent a car to travel among different areas of Dolomites but still want to take in the beauty of Dolomites, then book a tour with local guides at http://www. dolomitemountains.com/en/home.htm TRAVELLIVE

The most interesting thing about the nature of the monsoon season is that you never know what is going to happen in the next few minutes. Almora is the perfect example to show you the Himalayan region during the rainy season. It sounds crazy to travel to Uttarakhand at this time as it is considered the most dangerous place in India to go in raining season.

My journey begins directly from Dehradun, but it's not a bad idea as my friend suggests stopping in Ranikhet on the way to experience the "taste" of its monsoon days. Actually, Ranikhet is not included in my plan as Almora is my desired destination. Ranikhet is only a small hilltown, but an ideal place for capturing some Himalayan views as long as the weather is in a good mood - if it's sunny. Try your luck here to find whether you are fortunate enough to get a good view of the Himalayas or not as foggy is the main characteristic of this season. In these days, the entire town is covered with fog, it covers every single rooftop

of all the houses. There is nearly no chance to see a rainbow after a half day of heavy rain. Though I had no idea about Ranikhet before, I didn't think it wanted to let me go in that way. Anyway, it gave me more fun than I could imagine as my friend and I took a long walk full of jokes in the rain. Undoubtedly, if you are a true rain lover, then Ranikhet in the monsoon season is the best destination for you to enjoy the rhythm of the rain in the slow life of the small town before heading to Almora. Almora then becomes my only hope of admiring the beauty of the

Himalays, although it is only 70km from Ranikhet to Almora.

A

shared jeep will take you straight to Almora via the most adventurous road that you only can know about when you are already settled on. The jeep gradually goes up windy roads all the way up to Almora. And if you want to "define" how dangerous it is, check the waste left by carsick victims. Anyway, it's not a bad price to experience this and witness an "OMG" educing landscape. The beauty of Alroma will mesmerize you

immediately so that all you can do is stick your eyes on the car window, contemplating the surroundings. That's a gift from nature to any of her devotee. Monsoon season adds such a distinctive green color to the nature that you will be absolutely amazed and will wonder why other people are scared of this season, whilst it's the best time to see the pure beauty of nature so green and lively. Interestingly, you will never know what's behind the veil of fogs. That's what you will realize when you reach Almora. TRAVELLIVE

The beauty of Alroma will mesmerize you immediately so that all you can do is stick your eyes on the car window. Interestingly, you will never know what's behind the veil of fog. That's what you will realize when you reach Almora.

resh sun rays and the fascinating taste of mountain winds will lead you to the last destination, inviting you to enjoy the breath of Himalayan nature, the peacefulness of nature, as traditional songs echo from the mighty mountains, and small lives. Fog gets denser and starts the game with its friend - clouds - right before we reach Almora. During rainy season, Almora looks like it's being hit in the face with a water balloon filled with the color of life. This small hill town is home to sights of the charming beauty of Himalayan ranges during both sunrise and sunset. If you get off the shared jeep in the late afternoon, you can't escape from the game of fog and clouds in Almora. This is the most interesting and enchanting thing that

you cannot get in any other season. Upon arriving at Kasar Devi temple on the hilltop, take the opportunity to see the Himalays and take another jeep to start your game with the fog and clouds. The shared jeep will leave you in an area where you will be able to find many guest houses or hotels in Kasar Devi village. Kasar Devi is also called terrace village because villagers built their houses on the side of the mountain, offering an amazing view of Himalayan ranges. But the fog and clouds won't let you enjoy it as easy as travel guides might tell you. Beware! The beauty of the fog is that we see nothing but you will be thrilled by their hidden mysterious beauty. If you think that you will find your guesthouse easily, then you have been taken by the trap of Almora in

monsoon season. I certainly was. Fog never wants to play an easy game. It prevents you from any hope of seeing clear roads or paths leading to your place. Instead you have to keep your awareness level high while at the same time reminding yourself not to be scared. Follow the small signal boards on a zigzag down tracks with sudden changes that you only know when you reach it due to the veil of fog. If you're supposed to wake up early in the morning to see the majestic view of the Himalayas during sunrise, you can allow yourself to relax and sleep in the pleasant weather there. Fog and clouds will play for a while till lunch time, chasing and catching each other until the sunshine paints some rays on the rooftop of each house. Drops become pure and sparkling.

Mother Nature is most charming in the morning. You will be astonished by the calm picture of Almora at this time a day. Sit back and savor the moment. It will keep you away from your chaotic thoughts of the outside world, in turn allowing you to think about your life and seek new inspirations. But that moment won't last too long as fog and clouds never forget to return. All backgrounds become grey with their particular taste of monsoon - wind with a little rain. When the time runs out, you can see the blue sky once again with its majestic portrayal of the Himalayan ranges, its a time when you get to know that you're so lucky to be in that moment. The utmost beauty of Almora is its simple life. It's simple in every aspect of daily life. There are some scattered houses in the village where you can see old people sitting calmly in front of their house looking at the serene nature. There are some laughing school children on their way back home

under the familiar foggy game. This is the simple life that you can't find anywhere outside the world of Almora. The sunset comes like the last hope at the end of the day to let you enjoy the moment of truth. It is a passionate sunset for the lover of nature. It picks your mind up with a miraculous combination of end of the day sunshine rays and fog, fog coming up from the Earth to join with its companion and creates a remarkably harmonious moment of nature; the light lifts the fog step by step till the time its ready to start covering the village with Her mystical veil one more time. The sound of bells ringing from Kasar Devi temple pull everything back to harmony and remind me this mysterious world truly exists behind the magical veil of fog in monsoon season this world that not many people outside the veil know about. It's an amazing gift of Mother Nature that anyone would feel lucky to witness.

Further information: How to reach? ñ Take a direct bus to Almora from Dehradun Inter State Bus Terminal (ISBT) or, if you want to stop in Ranikhet before going straight to Almora, you can take the direct bus to Ranikhet. After that take another shared jeep or bus from Ranikhet to Almora (there is a bus stop in the town and it's easy to take the shared jeep there as well). ñ When you reach the hilltown of Almora, you can take another shared jeep to the Kasar Devi temple - this is the peak of Almora where you can see the great view of the Himalayas. Stay ñ There is a variety of guest houses and hotels for different budgets that you can easily find in Kasar Devi village (near Kasar Devi Temple). Food ñ There are some small restaurants near the main road or you can ask your guesthouse or hotel owner to cook for you. Sightseeing ñ Kasar Devi temple - This is a well-known temple where Swami Vivekannada visited and mediated. The structure of this temple dates to 2nd century CE

ou know what, in 1000 baby turtles only 600 ones are successful in finding their way to the swallow water near the shore. Among them, only one turtle is strong enough to survive and return to the beach to lay eggs after 15-20 years. What's more is this extremely low rate has been affected by humans for decades. In Vietnam, Con Dao National Park is considered a paradise for turtles to lay eggs at with 14 large beaches including Hon Bay Canh, Hon Cau, and Hon Tre Lon, spanning a total area of dozens of thousands of square

some. Observing a turtle surfing on the water to find a place to lay her eggs is an intriguing experience. Not many people know that, when laying eggs, turtles do not know if their children are male or female. While human sex is formed by chromosomal structures, sand's temperature and environment are the key factors to decide a turtle sex. Incubating eggs at high temperature (above 29 degrees C) produces more females, while lower temperatures produce more males. Researchers indicate that turtles can choose the areas with suitable sand's temperature to choose their children's sex.

after years. The fantasy world on the ocean floor with the huge diversity of fish and colorful coral reefs are exciting but dangerous to baby turtles. Upon reaching the water, they will swim continuously for 2-5 days without food. Their first year of life is known as the "disappearing year" as they are rarely found during this period. How they can survive in their first year is still a mystery for scientists, for no device can track the development of baby turtles in their first stage of life. In addition to the rigors of nature, sea turtles now have to struggle to

If you have a chance, then visit Hon Bay Canh in the east of Con Son island. Here, the island's two parts are connected by a sand beach named Bai Cat Lon (the large sand beach). This is where sea turtles most often lay their eggs. Meanwhile, Hon Tre Lon is a pristine island and home to various examples of nature such as coral, fish, bird nests, and, especially, sea turtles. There are several rangers living and working to protect the island's natural landscape and wild life. The breeding season of sea turtles lasts from April to October, in which the peak season is from July to September. You are only allowed to visit Bay Canh island for 4-6 hours, or, at most, a night stay to watch turtles lay eggs. To do that, you must ask for a permit from the National Park on the Con Son island (the permit is free of charge and valid until 5pm the next day). In each breeding season, a turtle lays eggs in 2-5 nests. Each nest consists of 50 to 150 eggs, or even up to 200 in

In Con Dao, rangers support to balance turtle sexes by taking a half of eggs to a place with more sunshine while covering the other under a sunscreen. After 45 to 60 days, the baby turtles hatch from their eggs. The baby turtles then find their way to the sea by the skyline, moonlight, stars, and the slope of sand. Therefore, if the turtle mom lays its eggs near residential areas which have strong light, baby turtles will misunderstand and move backward to that direction away from the sea. As a result, the baby turtles will die due to lack of water and being exhausted. Newly born turtles are weak but they need to "take an adventure" on the beach full of enemies such as ants, craps, iguanas, dogs, and cats. Even when they reach the water and swim through the shallow area, they are threatened by big fish and hunting sea birds. It is amazing that, although they only spend a matter of hours on the beach, turtles remember and find the way back there to lay eggs

survive with pollution and human poaching. Turtle eggs are believed to be a nutritious food and a local specialty. Sometimes, you will even see some tourists innocently ask volunteers on the beach to buy some eggs ... to try eating! The egg is as small as a ping-pong ball, but its amount of cholesterol is 20 times higher than that of chicken egg, an excess of which can lead to heart attack or stroke. Sea turtles are hunted to exhaustion while their hatching environment is devastated. That's why the number of sea turtles in Con Dao and other areas in Vietnam has dramatically decreased. This New Year, why don't we make efforts to change this sad fact, to build a peaceful "house" with a healthy ecosystem so that the little turtles can safely "find their way home" after years of living in the ocean? Protecting sea turtles, witnessing turtle mothers make nest to lay eggs, and watching thousands of baby turtles toddling to the sea are amazing experiences.

February, let her roam like a child on the wild land of Cam Ranh which is home to the white sand Bai Dai beach, turquoise waters, and an array of fish, clams, oysters, and snails. Located right on the beautiful Bai Dai, The Anam Resort is a destination for meeting friendly and interesting locals of the tropical coastal area. There are male receptionists with cute accents of three regions of Vietnam, and a caring waitress who always welcome travelers with a lovely smile. The highlights of the Anam not only lie in its unique 19th century Southeast Asia design but also come from its concept of "Sweet Dreams µ la carte" offering guests the best sleep with goose down leather pillows. Sunbathe, play with sand, drink a Heineken, and then sleep on "clouds", why not?
