Do You Want to save money? Get Rates On Grand Canyon National Park

Halloween will be here soon and in honor of the freaky holiday, I want to show you how to get savings so spooky on Grand Canyon tours that you’ll be yelling “trick or treat” at the top of you lungs!

Don’t assume you will get a good rate on a Grand Canyon Tour by buying your tickets at tour time. It doesn’t work that way. In fact, it’s downright wrong. If you decide to buy your tickets at the gate, you will have to pay a lot more than your fellow passengers who know how to score discounted tickets.

What’s the deal?

Tour operators are a lot like airline companies. When you buy a ticket close to your travel date, you have to pay more. This is especially true if you book within 24 hours of take off. If you want to go completely crazy, buy a ticket the day of the tour.

There is no reason to go through all that. All you have to do is plan. Try to book your tour of the Grand Canyon at least one week before your tour date. Not only does this nearly guarantee you seat, but it also gives you access to the most departure times and regularly scheduled tours.

There are plenty of benefits to getting your tour seats ahead of time. Here are some other things to think about.

You want to buy your seats online. You might have some concerns about using your credit card online. That’s easy to understand. I used to be that way too. But the truth is, it is very easy and convenient to book your travel plans that way. The risk is low if you stick with legitimate travel sites.

Here’s the thing. I like to save money. It is probably important to you too. At any rate, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: the Web is home to the best deals on National Park tours. There are plenty of other places to buy tickets such as your hotel or a kiosk on the Strip. Avoid those places because you have to pay more when you get your tickets at a kiosk or hotel.

Remember this important point. Always complete the transaction on the site. That is the only way to get the low Internet rate. When you do that, you will get a confirmation email with your order information. Allow up to 45 minutes for the email to hit your inbox, then print it out.

About Your Tour

Halloween savings abound on Grand Canyon tours, especially helicopter flights, airplane rides and bus tours. To reap your rewards, follow my advice regarding reservations and online bookings. You will love a fall tour of the canyon. Temperatures are nice and the overall weather is great. Thrill your little goblins with a Halloween experience they will remember for a lifetime.

Palace, residence of the sultan of Yogyakarta

At the palace in the Indonesian city of Yogyakarta, there are two honours passed down through the generations. In both cases, when a son is born, the father knows his child will one day take on a special responsibility. It is the right and the duty of the child to follow in the footsteps of his ancestors.

abdi_dalem
Abdi Dalem

One of these honours is to become the Sultan of Yogyakarta, a hereditary title that dates back to the eighteenth century. The other great honour that stays in the family is to be a guard at the palace. It is not just royalty that passes on the job to the next generation, but also those who dedicate their lives to the royal protection.

Today, there are two thousand palace guards in total. Only about one thousand are active, though. It’s a job for life, so as they get older and can’t physically work anymore, they are looked after rather than being thrown out of service. On any particular day there are about one hundred palace guards actually working.

The palace is known in Yogyakarta as the Keraton. Although it’s open for visitors in the morning, it is still a functioning part of the political sphere here in the region. The sultan holds that particular title in name, not power, since the declaration of Indonesian independence in 1945 – but he is also automatically the governor of the region. Therefore the Keraton is used for official functions, political meetings, and as the royal residence.

There is also a cultural link with the compound and the people. In some ways it is almost a spiritual connection. The Keraton was designed to reflect the Javanese cosmos. It faces towards the volcanic Mount Merapi in one direction and towards the Indian Ocean, home of the important Indonesian sea spirit, in the other.

logo_kraton
Kraton Ngayogyakarta Hadiningrat

The placement of the pavilions, the courtyards and even the trees all have a significance within the traditional spiritual view of the world by the local people. But, look a bit closer, and you’ll also see in the intricate designs an integration of the faiths that have influenced this part of Indonesia over the years. There are Buddhist, Islamic and Hindi elements to much of the decoration in the central part of the palace.

From my experience, most of Indonesia is very proud of their heritage. But those in Yogyakarta seem more enthusiastic than others to continue weaving it into daily modern life. The Keraton and the connection with the people is a strong one. There seems to be a genuine affection and respect for the leadership amongst the people here. This palace complex is the bridge between the old and the new and the faith that binds the cultures.

Bangkok Durian

What is Durian?

Durian-fruit
Durian Fruit

Durian is a Southeast Asian fruit that’s most popular in Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, and the Philippines.

Many durian trees are large and can grow anywhere from 20 – 50 meters in height. There are many different species and cultivars of durian, some with a more pungently distinct flavor while others are calmer and less strong.

Though I have seen a photo of a thornless durian, the most distinct characteristic of any durian is its lethal thorny outer shell. Rather than a fruit, a durian looks more like a medieval war club – just one of the many reasons it’s so enchanting!

Wrapped within the dangerous exterior is soft creamy flesh that’s normally yellowish or cream in color and firm to soft depending on ripeness. Each pod of the fruit flesh is sectioned off in separate segments.

Durian is most notorious for is its smell.

What some describe as rotting socks, fermented garlic and onions, or just straight up barf, to me is the sweetest perfume known to man. But somehow I just love odd edibles durian, stink beans, and wood apples.

The aroma is so strong, it can linger for days, making durian illegal in many air conditioned or public buildings in Southeast Asia.

When you’re out exploring Bangkok, look out for these delicious durians.

1. Monthong – Golden Pillow

Monthong, which translates to golden pillow in Thai, is probably the most widespread durian in Thailand; It’s also the most famous exported variety.

If you stumble into durian in another part of the world, like North America or even China, it may be a Thai Golden Pillow.

The fruit is large, often 3 – 5 kilos per fruit and is characterized by large triangular spikes. The flesh of the fruit is very meaty and can be considered one of the least pungent in both aroma and flavor.

It’s rich and sweet.

The chunks of durian that emerge from a monthong are gigantic, honestly, some are the size of personal baguettes.

The largest monthong durian I’ve ever bought in Thailand was over 10 kilos.

After spotting it at a vendor at Samrong Market, my friend Joel and I had to purchase it merely because of its huge size. Unfortunately, it was watery and not very good, but it sure was fun!

If you’re a first time durian sampler, you may want to go with monthong.

Price: About 50 – 100 THB per kilo

2. Chanee – Gibbon

Chanee is more pungent, softer, more buttery, and stronger in nearly every way than a monthong. Yet at the same time, for myself personally, it’s not quite as rich and I can eat more volume of chanee than monthong.

The flesh is often eaten very ripe, when it turns to a gorgeous golden yellow. The riper a chanee gets, the stronger the luscious aroma becomes. The meat turns bitter adding an extra wonderful dimension to the sweetness.

Price: About 50 – 80 THB per kilo

3. Kanyao – Long Stem

Kanyao, or the long stem durian, is normally the most expensive and high class durian to eat in Bangkok. If you have a chance to eat kanyao, take it!

It’s medium in size, and distinct because it’s normally quite round like a volleyball, not in in rounded segments like a monthong.

The flesh is very sweet, incredibly creamy and even when overripe it doesn’t become too mushy.

I’m undecided as to wether chanee or kanyao is better; Both are wildly delicious.

There’s also the famed “Nonthaburi Kanyao,” the most well known durian in Thailand that can fetch $200 per fruit. I’m still waiting for my first sample!

Price: About 80 – 150 THB per kilo

7 Tamples in Bangkok

Bangkok temples known in Thai as “wats.”

Some are small, located far down tiny sois and well out of the way of  tourist traffic. Others are part of massive complexes filled with halls, schools and revered statues, earning them a place in all the Bangkok guidebooks.

Here are seven of the best Bangkok temples, a list compiled based on both historical significance and pure aesthetics.

Remember to dress appropriately — keep those legs and shoulders covered — or you may not be allowed in.

1. Wat Arun.

Wat_Arun_0You know a Bangkok temple is special if its image is on Thai currency, in this case the 10-baht coin. Among Bangkok’s most revered icons, Wat Arun –- the Temple of Dawn — sits on the west bank of the Chao Phraya River.

Construction of the stunning “phra prang” (towers), which are covered in tiny pieces of colorful Chinese ceramics, was started by King Rama II (1809-1824) and completed by King Rama III (1824-1851).

Though Wat Arun’s phra prang are the biggest attraction, they are actually only a small part of the complex, which also hosts lovely white buildings, shrines, ponds and tiny lanes.

From a snapper’s point of view, the best place to get a shot of Wat Arun is actually from the other side of the river, particularly at sunset. The restaurant at Arun Residence has great views and good food.

2 . Wat Phra Kaew

Tourists are likely more familiar with Wat Phra Kaew’s home, the grounds of the legendary Grand Palace. Wat Phra Kaew — Temple of the Emerald Buddha — enshrines one of Thailand’s most revered Buddha statues, which was carved out of a single block of jade.

This Buddha image is certainly well travelled. According to Thailand’s official palace website, it was first discovered in Chiang Rai in 1464, brought down to Lampang where it remained till King Tilok of Lannathai brought it to Chiang Mai, his capital. Then it was brought to Luang Prabang, Laos, before heading to Vientiane.

Then, the King of Thonburi sent an expedition to bring it back. When King Rama I built the city of Bangkok, including the Grand Palace, the Emerald Buddha was installed in the chapel, where it remains today.

Also worth checking out in this Bangkok temple are the murals, which depict the traditional life-story of the Buddha, proverbs and episodes from the Ramakien — the Thai version of the Ramayana.

3 . Wat Pho

Right next door to the Grand Palace, Wat Pho is home to Thailand’s biggest reclining Buddha statue. The soles of the 46-meter-long statue’s feet are inlaid with mother-of-pearl, depicting the 108 auspicious signs of the Buddha, while the statue itself is covered in gold leaf.

According to the Thai history books, after moving to the Grand Palace, King Rama I recognized the old temple as a site of religious significance and ordered his noblemen to restore it in 1788. This first restoration took seven years, five months and 28 days. During the reign of King Rama III another great restoration/expansion period took place, which took 16 years and seven months.

Wat Pho is also home to a highly respected massage school, where Thai masseurs have been training since 1955. Visitors can drop in for a full traditional Thai massage or enroll in short or long-term courses.

4 . Wat Benchamabophitr

wat_benchamalAlso known in English as “the Marble Temple,” the beautiful Wat Benchamabophitr is a royal monastery highly revered as a Thai architectural masterpiece.  Its main ordination hall was built with Italian marble and features European neo-classical influences.

Located in Bangkok’s leafy green Dusit district near Chitralada Palace, it was founded by King Rama V in the year 1900. His ashes are buried inside the ordination hall under a Sukhothai-style Buddha statue.

If it looks familiar to you already, that’s because its image is on Thailand’s five-baht coin.

5 . Wat Mahathat Yuwaratrangsarit

Wat_MahathatWat Mahathat Yuwarajarangsarit might not be one of the most beautiful Bangkok temples, but it’s certainly one of the most religiously significant.

One of six royal wats, it was built during the Ayutthaya period. When Bangkok became the capital it was used as a temple for royal ceremonies due to its key location near the freshly built Grand Palace.

Today it’s home to Mahachulalongkornrajavidyalaya University — which was founded in 1887, making it Thailand’s oldest higher education institute for Buddhist monks — and the Vipassana Meditation headquarters. Visitors can drop by for classes.

Also worth checking out nearby are the amulet market and the National Museum.

6 . Wat Saket

wat_saketWat Saket is another one of those Bangkok temples that draws visitors to its grounds for its unique landmarks rather than the temple itself. In this case the main draw is the “Golden Mount,” a man-made hill topped with a towering chedi that offers incredible views across Bangkok.

The temple, which really isn’t that remarkable, dates back to the Ayutthaya era but was restored under King Rama I.

The Golden Mount ‘s hill was constructed under King Rama III but it was Rama IV who put up the golden chedi. Rama V added the chedi that’s still there today. Inside is a revered Buddha image that was given to him by the British.

The walk to the top can be brutal on a hot day so bring water. If you can handle crowds, the temple puts on a great Loy Kratong fair every November.

7 . Wat Traimit

Wat_TraimitAnother reason why you shouldn’t judge a Bangkok temple by its exterior, Wat Traimit is actually home to one of world’s largest solid gold Buddha statues.

Remarkably, the image sat ignored for centuries until workmen dropped what they thought was just a five-ton, 13th century image of Buddha in the 1950s, cracking the plaster to reveal the solid gold statue underneath. Apparently, it was covered to fool invading Burmese back in the day.

Outside temple on the right is giant red Royal Jubilee Gate — in Thai called “Chalermphrakiat” — built in 1999 to symbolize the prosperity of Thai and Chinese cultures under His Majesty the King.

Fireworks festival in Da Nang 2015

After one year of waiting, Da Nang people have the opportunity to have the same eagerness to brilliant fireworks performances. Da Nang International Fireworks Competition 2015 will officially launched with the theme of “Da Nang – Symphony of Colors”. This year’s International Fireworks Festival is expected to bring local people and visitors outstanding and splendid firework performances. The firework festival in Da Nang will take place in two consecutive nights of 28th and 29th of April 2015. The competition also started at the same time with the anniversary of Vietnam Southern Liberation and Labor Day. Therefore, the number of tourists in Vietnam tour packages coming to Da Nang sharply increases. There are many ideal places for tourists to admire wonderful fireworks performances created by reputable and professional teams coming from EU, US, Australia, Africa, and Asia – Vietnam team. Official bleachers Like previous years’ competitions, the fireworks performances venue is at the eastern bank of Han River. To prepare for the event, Da Nang prepares 28,000 – seat bleachers. The number of seats is not enough to meet the demand of local people and visitors. The bleachers are opposite to the performing stage. From here, visitors can embrace everything of the festival. Sitting on the sidelines, in addition to enjoying the art fireworks performances, visitors can soak up in the fireworks performances and rhythms of music. Up until now, the number of ticket buyers is bigger and bigger. If wishing to own one, you be quick. Do not wait until the opening day to buy, as the ticket price will be definitely a cut-throat rate. It can be double, 5 times, or 10 times bigger than normal. Ticket price of the Da Nang Fireworks Festival fluctuates from 300,000 VND to 500,000 VND. However, to some locals and visitors could not buy tickets, there many ideal places to contemplate wonderful fireworks performances. That will be unforgettable memories in Da Nang tours during the days. Han River bank Han River has been one of the most famous attractions in Da Nang. The river is not just associated with daily life of local people but also a historical witness of the city. Tran Hung Dao Street running along the river is an ideal position to admire the outstanding and fireworks performances at a short distance. Here is also the place where bleachers are situated. If visitors have a chance to admire the fireworks performance from here, this will be a great ideal to see fireworks performances on water surface and in the sky. Apart from Tran Hung Dao Street, Bach Dang Street is another road running along the river. The distance from Bach Dang – Phan Dinh Phung T-junction to Le Van Duyet T-junction is seen as the most beautiful streets to enjoy fireworks festival at a short distance. Perhaps, during the festival, the long streets are occupied by a lot of local people and visitors. If choosing Bach Dang Street as the place of enjoying the competition, you should come early. Otherwise, visitors can hire a boat to travel on Han River to enjoy relaxation, cool breezes, and magnificent fireworks performances. Maybe, this is the view of the clearest and brightest fireworks. However, when on boat, you will not hear the musical melody of fireworks performances. Bridges in Da Nang Bridges in Da Nang are also populous venues for visitors to come, wait, and immerse in the exciting atmosphere of the festival. Han River Bridge is one of the most famous ones in the city. Here is a favorable position to unique and splendid fireworks performances. However, to have a stand on Han River Bridge during the festival is a great challenge. It is the reason why many people come to the bridge so early in the afternoon, though the performances take place in the evening. Meanwhile, Dragon Bridge, voted as the most beautiful bridge in Da Nang, connects Da Nang International Airport with the city’s most popular beaches and the downtown area, so it does have a practical purpose. From Dragon Bridge, visitors will be overwhelmed by a series of fantastic fireworks performances. As it is a new and “hot” bridge, visitors have to come here early to reserve a stand before the competition. If you do not want to leave your hotel early in the afternoon, you can drop by Thuan Phuoc Bridge. Thuan Phuoc Bridge is about 2km from Han River Bridge. It takes about 15 minutes to walk there. Standing on Thuan Phuoc Bridge is not too ideal to admire underwater fireworks performances. But you still can contemplate excellent high-distance fireworks shows. Compared with the above locations, watching fireworks on Thuan Phuoc Bridge brings the most comfort and less crowd, than on Han River Bridge or Dragon Bridge. Linh Ung Pagoda Linh Ung Pagoda is one of the most famous religious attractions in Da Nang and in religious Vietnam tours. The pagoda is quite far from the venue of this festival; thus, you might not admire the magnificent underwater fireworks shows. However, from the pagoda, you can contemplate the beauty of fireworks performances, but also the panoramic night view of the entire city. After that, you can enter the pagoda to visit and pray for the best wishes. Riverside cafs This is the -hottest- business time of coffee shops near Han River Bridge. Memory Restaurant next to the bank of Han River and near Han River Bridge owns a prime location to see the fireworks display. To have a wonderful place to enjoy the competition, you will spend about 500,000 VND. Besides, many cafs along Bach Dang Street are interesting places for tourists to enjoy drinks and fireworks performances. Yet, the price at the cafs will be much higher than the normal days. Immersing in the exciting atmosphere of the fireworks competition, AloTrip – a famous and travel agent with AloTrip.com as its official website will provide tourists all over the world with full information about the festival, as well as some services to facilitate your stay in Da Nang such as tickets price to Da Nang, and some useful tips.
