If you’re wondering what to do in 3 days in Hanoi as a first timer, you’ve got to the right place! I could only start that by saying that this peculiar city is wrapped up in mysticism, colors, smiles and kindness. It’s my favourite place in Vietnam.
Hanoi is a city hard not to fall in love with.
First of the 3 days in our Hanoi itinerary is a walk around the Hoan Kiem Lake, a place of folk tales and art. We start with a temple visit and continue by exploring the nearby quarters and most exciting attractions.
The second day is an introduction to the history, as well as political and educational system of Vietnam, while the third day in Hanoi is about the West Lake area, from Pagodas and Temples to modern-day skyscrapers.
KIA ORA! I am writing this post from the beautiful New Zealand, city of Rotorua.
If some weeks ago I was gathering up all my memories about Seville in a day based on my recent trip to Spain, today I am highlighting another wonderful well spent day. This time is about the ultimate itinerary for a day in Rotorua during winter season / beginning of spring.
A weekend getaway from Auckland, at the end of September.
Rotorua is an enchanting small town andweekend getawayset in the idyllic countryside landscape of New Zealand. More exactly, in the North Island, at about 200 km and around 2.5 hours distance from Auckland, New Zealand’s most populated city.
As the city is the one and only, excessively charming capital of the southern Spain province of Andalusia, the experience of a day trip to Seville can be quite massive.
You’ll find am urban Andalusian mix of centuries-old architectural marvels, fully immersed in lush vegetation, jasmine scents and the passionate rhythms of flamenco. A Moorish-Renaissance palace and a gigantic Gothic cathedral reign overthe historical center, known as the the labyrinthic Barrio de Santa Cruz.
For me, Seville has always had the air of a vintage postcard. Tallest palms I have ever seen, Mediterranean wildflowers scattered at their feet, quirky fine art, colorful ceramics and intricate archways of the ancient buildings, plus the guitar melodies floating above the cobblestone streets, make Sevilla one the most romantic cities in Europe. Durable through time, though so delicate.
“A 1-day Abu Dhabi itinerary and a list of must-see cultural attractions, from traditional Arabesque architecture landmarks to Emirati craftsmanship hubs.”
If you’re visiting Abu Dhabi right now, you’re so damn lucky!! Because I miss that beautiful city even when I’m already there. Once per year for the last 19 years. With this in mind, I decided a 1-day Abu Dhabi itinerary to the most Emirati culture-filled attractions (which has always been that special must-do on each of my arrivals) should be a one-of-a-kind post on my travel blog. The everlasting smell of the oud perfumes carried over the windy beaches of the Corniche and all heritage sites begging to be explored!
