    Busan

    Busan

    Although grounded in ancient traditions and Confucianism, South Korea is one of the most modern and liberated countries in Asia, where every day is an adventure for a traveler. Visit a big city in South Korea, and you can barely keep up with the fast rhythm of daily life, but head to the countryside or a small town, and you’ll be lulled into a gentle pace and appreciation for life’s smaller pleasures.

    Cities like Seoul, Busan and Incheon are the kind of places where you can find something interesting to see or do any hour of the day, but South Korea’s sights are not restricted to urban sprawls, and you can find them in the most surprising places. Here are 5 spectacular attractions in South Korea, but you can rest assured that these are only a taster!

    Bangladesh has a bit of a knack for attracting disaster, or at least this is how most people come to hear about this small South Asian country. But even after civil unrest, wars and natural disasters, Bangladesh got back on its feet, and surprisingly quickly.

    Bangladesh might be small and rather flat, yet it has several national parks that protect rare plant and animal species, picturesque villages where traditional culture is thriving, and more environmental protection initiatives than many western countries.

    And despite being usually overlooked by mass tourism, Bangladesh has an incredible number of attractions of all types. In any case, the tourist gems of Bangladesh are interesting enough to turn the country into a tourist magnet.

  • The stunning nature reserves of Suriname

    South Africa has such amazingly well known tourist attractions, and natural wonders that the whole world has heard about, and yet there’s always some spot to be found on the map where few tourist tread.

    Suriname is located in one such forgotten corner of the continent, sandwiched between Brazil, Guyana and French Guyana. Suriname calls itself the beating heart of the Amazon, and this is no mere overstatement. The country can best be described as a lush and green patch of forests crisscrossed by rivers, hiding an extraordinary cultural diversity.

    Suriname’s people is a mix and match of people descended from British and Dutch colonists, African slaves, Indian and Indonesian indentured workers and indigenous people, and while the cultural makeup has changed over the centuries, one thing stayed the same: the country’s natural beauty. Here is a short guide to the stunning nature reserves of Suriname.

  • A traveler’s guide to East Timor

    photo by yeowatzup on Flickr

    East Timor is another one of those Pacific islands that people rarely get to hear about, but for travelers visiting this island nation,  it is hardly a bad thing. East Timor shares an island with Indonesian West Timor, and it also comprises the islands of Atauro, Jaco and Oecusse.

    As a fairly new country, East Timor has had its fair share of unrest and domination by bigger and more powerful nations, but now things have finally calmed down, and a slow trickle of adventurous travelers has started to make its way to this ‘undiscovered’ corner of the planet.

    Don’t expect a well developed tourist infrastructure with tons of resorts and amenities, but if you are in search of pure nature beauty, an interesting culture, and really welcoming people, a traveler’s guide to East Timor might just convince you to visit.
