My Review
We had the best meal in one of the restaurants at the base of the crown casino, if you manage to get a room in one of the crown hotels, facing the new years fire works you will have the best seat in the house because the sparks practically rouch the windows!! its an amazing spot to stay if you want a place in the middle of the city and its 100m from the train station. most afternoons the promonade is a buz with street performers, its a great spot to just hang out in a cafe and watch people.

BEST PHOTOGRAPHY SPOTS!!

United Arab Emirates

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
I couldnt stop snapping at the buildings and the gardens everything was so expensive looking and beautful!

My Recommendation Tip

As you enter the "PALMS" and come out from the under water tunnel, be sure to have your camera ready to snap snap snap!! The Palms is like the esplinade of Abu Dhabi along the beach side. The Birj is the tallest building, and the lights at night are lit up bright with amazing lighting! be sure to capture this!!! To get pics of animals, the outskirts of most of the cities have wild camels and donkeys in giant numbers feeding on patches of weeds in desert. It's a cool image to see. Be sure to see the rotating restaurant located int he middle of the Abu Dhabi mall, the locals call it "the top of the world" one half is fine dining and the other half is cafes the views are of the ocean and the desert and the city its just breath taking!

The tallest point in the UAE "Al ain"

United Arab Emirates

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
Awesome zoo!

My Recommendation Tip

Al ain is a mountain thats approx 2ooom above sealevel and is flat on top, you need to pick you visiting days as it can be quite dusty and windy. The pictures from there are just so special! Theres also a zoo up there. The Zoo is one of the best in the world. Just like everything else in the UAE the quality of the amenities are high and there are alot of enclosures to view with a vast array of species. you will def need a full day to enjoy. You cannot bring your own food but there are cafes that are reasonable in price. There are plenty of shows also to see. And you can purchase bags of nuts and seeds to feed the animals. a must see!

Fun activites in the sun!

United Arab Emirates

My Recommendation Tip

If you love the outdoors and quad bikes this is awesome! You can hire quad bikes from alot of diff places in Um Alquwain its farely cheap especially the more you hire. The sand dunes never seem to end but WATCH OUT FOR GOATS! lol A little experience is necessary as the dunes can be deceiving in height and safety is a must! Also you must have closed in shoes! and Stick together! There are no guides to go out with you, but they will show you how to use the vehicles.

Abu Dhabi Zoo - DON'T VISIT THIS ZOO

United Arab Emirates

My Recommendation Tip

If your an animal activist, or someone who cares about animals this is not something you will want to see. the enclosures are terribly small and unfit to hold the sized animals they have. It's a smaller zoo, and its alright for kids to interact but beware you may see some dead animals that no one has bothered to remove!! BIG THUMBS DOWN!

Rules About Taking Photos

United Arab Emirates

My Recommendation Tip

If your going to travel of course you want to document your awesome adventure, but there are a few rules to follow when you visit a new country. Especially one as strict as Abu Dhabi. Don't take pics inside any religious structure. Just be sure not to take pictures with any Arab people in them without their permission, it's a disrespectful gesture and may cause conflict.

Nov232010

Sightseeing in Abu Dhabi

If your a fan of modern and ancient architecture, this is the city for you. There are tall sky scrapers with all glass windows right down to beautiful delicate religious structures.

Travel Recommendation

BIG DON'T's

United Arab Emirates

My Recommendation Tip

DON'T - Be aware if you are on any prescription medication as some legal drugs in your country might be very illegal in the UAE!! Even if it's in your system make sure it's well out before you land if you get drug tested at the airport you will go to prison. They take hair samples at the airport...and heat detection. DON'T- Show affection between men and women, any touching (hands even) in public is an offense and you will go to jail. Men and Men are okay as this is a sign of friendship, and Girls and Girls as well. DON'T- Swear in any language or make any rude guestures. Be polite and on your strictest well behaved behaviour. DON'T- Drink alcohol anywhere anytime. be sure to confirm a location that's okay. If you have alcohol in your car and drive through a city that's got an alcohol ban, if your caught you will go to jail.

Travel Recommendation

DO's

United Arab Emirates

My Recommendation Tip

Do's-clothing remember that the arib culture expect woman to be fully clothed you can show your feet, hands and face only.. Some areas are a little more relaxed but still keep shoulders and down to knees covered. If you want to dress in a traditional Arib clothing you can purchase these items from any store and this is well recieveed from the communities. Do's-Pick up a little of the Arab language it is also well recieved by the country. Things like Hello, How are you, Have a nice day, Thankyou, Sorry/excuse me and Goodbye. Do's- Even if your a fussy eater make your way to the Arib and Lebanese restaurants the food is so vast and there is always something to chose from. This is certainly a country rich in culture be sure to blend in as much as posible and enjoy!

Travelling around tips in Abu Dhabi

United Arab Emirates

My Recommendation Tip

If you catch a taxi make sure you have a map to show the driver as most do not speak any English. If you hire a vehicle, be sure your a confident driver and get insurance as the locals pretty much run the road like a bumper car game! the speeds are excessive to 180km even though there are speed laws. Most drivers do not indicate they just use a horn. (Be sure not to show any rude hand gestures or swear as you will go to jail!)

Travel Recommendation

Airport services at the Abu-Dhabi Airport

United Arab Emirates

My Recommendation Tip

Once you land and collect your luggage, there are porters with a trolly to help if you would like, you can tip them but gratueties are not compulsary. The Airport is quite large but the exit is close to the customs check point. There is alot of security gards around the airport so it feels quite safe to be there. When your departing there are small stalls by the departure gates that sell all sorts of aribic style souvoniers so dont panic if you forgot to get your friend a tiny camelhaped fruit bowel. Be sure to get non wooden and animal products its a NO-No in the Australian Customs.

Hire Car in USA first time visit.

USA

My Recommendation Tip

After hiring a car through the coinsierge at the hotel we stayed at in beverly hills, we decided to visit a few main areas in LA like Santa Monica Pier, Hollywood Blvd and Magic Mt and Disney Land. We found the highways to be confusing and highly reccommend paying extra for a GPS. We didnt see half the places we wanted to see because of the traffic being so congested and no easy U-turn access. I would reccomend having your own car but def have a GPS and a few Google maps printed in front of you and a compass as the highways work on North South East and West directions.

Great way to get around Phuket!

Phuket

My Recommendation Tip

A couple of diff ways to get around Thailand are cheapest to most expensive. Hire a Tuktuk it does depend on your distance for cost but don't settle, make sure you bargain before you hope on. Jump in a minivan which is decorated well, and has the same idea as a taxi its the cheapest way to get a group of people around. Hire your own scooter but be prepared for hectic congestion on the roads the drivers there are full on!

Wether changes in North Queensland.

Australia

My Recommendation Tip

This is in the eyes of a local and for 2010 but mostly has no change year to year. Our summer is very hot and spans over December January and Febuary. North Queensland is also known fro its humidity so dont besuprised if you feel damp from time to time just pop into some airconditioning which is readily available everywhere and is adored by the locals. at the moment we are coming out of a farely nice Spring, with cool nights and warm days. Most of the locals dont own an umbrella as its rarely drizzling. This is the sunny country so dont forget to get yourself an good sunblock.

The casino is quite large and features many Table games and also the largest selection of machine games. There is a modern and very nice bar and a band usualloy plays most weekends. Staff are very friendsly and are always willing to please. the cafe inside is called Spin cafe its got mainly bistro style meals or you can chose something quick from the cabnet.

Kintai Bridge Cherry blossom festival

Osaka

My Recommendation Tip

This cherry blossom festival is located of course at the kintai bridge, its most famous for its hump like structure, its a small fee to cross this famous bridge to get to the beautiful gardens on the other side. Theres a rail cart that can take you up to the kintai castle but i ran out of time to do this. The festival has traditional music playing, food stalls and ofcorse plenty of sake for sale as it is legal to walk around with your cask of sake and enjoy the gardens!

New years family day festival at the beach in Geelong.

Melbourne

My Recommendation Tip

If you are hanging around the southern Melbourne or Geelong areas on New Years day then don't miss the massive festival that happens with heaps of games and attractions for the singles, couples and families. You can take a slow walk along the beach front with numerous different stalls along the way, giving food, entertainment, merchandise and in some cases even a challenge!! There are long soft grassed hills for the kids to play on with a bit of cardboard (like when you were younger and you slid down the hill on that fruit box) and quiet areas to just sit, relax and enjoy the ocean views. Once you're done with that, grab a gelato icecream from one of the several stalls that dot the area before heading home in the very limited traffic in the early to mid afternoon.

  • Leisurely stroll... a bit cloudy and windy but still an awesome day out!

A few years ago i went on a tour through the cadbury chocolate factory...the memories are still etched in my head. If you love love love cadbury chocolate thats made in australia then you have to see the factory. Im not sure if they still do it but at the end of walking through the factory and tasting samples, and watching how your fav treats are packed up you can get the chance of a life time to buy all the faulty "UGLY" blocks that didnt make it to your supermarket shelves because they didnt have a clean cut shape of the maulds..but it still tasts exactly the same with nothing wrong! I remember walking out of that place with 5 or 6 shopping bags full of chocolate and i only spent about $30AU.

Cairns Bungy Jumping

Cairns & the Tropical North

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
This was a great day out with my mum and brother. She kept her feet on the ground but he and i dived right in (litterally) for the first time. So the location is about 20mins out of the city centre, its nestled in the side of a rainforrest covered hill. The scenery is just perfect! When you arrive you sign in, get weighed (important for them to know for your rope to be exactly right resistance. Theres a small cafe and bar but beware it is pricey so bring your own snacks. Theres an observation deck you can see the jumpers from there perfectly. There are a tone of stairs to climb before your walked out onto a platform where two guids go through the safety features and strap up your ankles. Its pretty high up, you dont really realise this till you jump... They have a graduating process when it comes to the jumps, first you must dive head first to show the instructors that you wont freak out and try to grab the rope or something. Then you can chose from a range of diff ways to jump. My thrill was standing on the ledge with only my tippie toes, with both hands resting on the back of my neck and looking straight up! JUMPING BACKWARDS! This is called the elevator i think?? Also word of warning, if you dont want to have your head go under the water tell them you have sinus issues and the water irritates them other wise if your a girl they def make sure your tshirt gets wet! resulting in a gush of water up your nose and a flu for the next 3 weeks!

Dubai Shopping

Dubai

My Recommendation Tip

I was only in Dubai for a couple of days but they have made a metropolis out of the desert!!! The TV adds are true, it is amazing for browsing and shopping. There is everything you could imagine in all the designer stores you could possibly think of, I forget the name of the large shopping center I went to but just ask a cab driver to go to a large mall and you should get there quite easily. Even if you're "just looking" (lol) you will be amazed with the MASSIVE fishtank aquarium that has been built into the wall as well as the waterfall near the center of the mall. I've never seen that many sports cars inside a shopping complex before but it was pretty cool to see the expensive names on display. Look around and you will also find the indoor waterparks and snowfields, absolute AWESOMENESS for a day of fun!!! Amazing to see what they have built in that devastating desert heat!!!! If you're looking for a definitive shopping experience than Dubai is it, but if you're on a budget, steer well clear!!!!

Penang

My Recommendation Tip

Penang is a culturally diverse place with Malaysian, Chinese, Indian and European infuences. Good for no more than about 4 days to see all you need to see, the food is awesome if you eat at the local restaurants and very well priced (low :-)) you can see the British infuence of days gone by with the architecture in the city aswell as the newer areas with high rise buildings and numerous high density living areas..... If you want a smaller city than Kuala Lumpur to experience the Malaysian lifestyle than I recommend Penang highly.

Hidden tourist Gem! Pet a dolphin!

Australia

My Recommendation Tip

Coffs Harbour not only has the BIG BANANA! but it also has a small sea animals wildlife park in the middle of the city. We only found this place because we like to explore (get lost on the roads haha) It's Coffs Harbour's Pet Porpoise Pool on Orlando street. It's rather affordable, and very familiy friendly. This place is great because it's not a huge arena style tourist trap, it's just a small park with a few dolphins, penguines and seals. And because of how unknown it is there arent any big crowds to fight to get a picture with a dolphin or a smooch from a seal! They do a few shows daily and rely on visiters as donations to keep the park going. This is a must see!

My Recommendation Tip

A few hours west of Osaka is Kaikyokan Aquarium in Shimonoseki, it's the home of the blow fish and our friend just HAD to take us here to try the blowfish. It's said that unless the blowfish is prepared and cut by a certified professional you can die immediatly when you eat it. Sooo naturally i was scared but my friends had eaten at this restaurant before. It took about 20min to get in as the tables are always full, but once your seated you can take any item off of the little convaerbelt whenever you like. Each plate is a diff colour and signifies a diff price. After our tummies were full we walked through the hug aquarium and saw every type of blowfish possible and some cute penguins. A must do experience!

Kanchanarburi Tiger Temple

Bangkok

My Recommendation Tip

So, if you are a wildlife lover then this is a must see!! From the tourist city of Kanchanarburi you can do an afternoon or morning tour to the "Tiger Temple" for just $30US for the basic fee of getting in and out it is worth it, depending on what sort of photos you want this can cost you up to another $30US for up close and personal photos. There is the "Cub feeding" option where you pay around $40US and get to go in with the tiny little Tiger cubs and play with them then bottle feed them for 45 mins..........if you love animals you HAVE TO DO THIS!!!!!!!!!!! Well worth the coin to play with some of the most badass animals in the world. Just remember that this is a half day trip and doesn't include meals etc.

Nov182010

Travel Recommendation

Tigers and Elephants!!!!

Bangkok

My Recommendation Tip

So with a day trip from Bangkok you can see the Tiger Temple near Kanchanarburi and also ride and feed an elephant before heading back late in the afternoon to Bangkok. Many different companies offer similar tours so make sure you shop around to get the most out of your day. Depending on how much you want to fit in you can put anything from, just Elephant Tour, just Tiger Tour or even just a river rafting tour along some scenic route, or you can combine two or I think three different things. The prices range anywhere from $50US to $150US depending on exactly how much you are doing, but remember these figures change a lot, have a look and get the best one for you at the time. Re accommodation while you're in Bangkok, Batong Road has lots of cheap backpacker areas but once again, have a look around, you never know what you can find at short notice......

India....low and high lights...

New Delhi

My Recommendation Tip

If you've ever been to Asia then you will fit right in whilst in India. It's quite diverse and there are many different destinations depending on what you want to see. If you're after the "old style" experience, then head for the Taj Mahal and Red Fort which shouldn't cost anymore than $40US for a day trip. There's lots of culture packed in with plenty of interaction with the locals.... Or if you're after the straight out bustle of the city vs the stacked up feel of Old Delhi then just check with your local hotel for the latest tours to take you through both the Old and New Delhi areas...If you want the traditional style Indian food then head for the smaller style stalls in "Old Delhi", or if you get over than, stay with the more upmarket restaurants which provide the "westernised" Indian food...up to you, how much India experience do you really want???
