    Coming from the airport, the enormous city appears suddenly. Everything is bigger than anywhere else: the buildings, the churches, the cathedrals and boulevards.

    Not all tourists travel at day and sleep at night, and night owls who spend their nights wandering around and exploring their surroundings are not interested only in the sights that can be appreciated in the sunlight. Many cities are pretty during the day, but become less inviting at night, so much that you almost forget to look around you.

    But other cities really come alive once the sun sets and the lights turn on – these are the kind of cities whose real beauty becomes obvious after most of their inhabitants go to sleep. If you have an appreciation for a fine nighttime view and a bright skyline, here are the top 5 cities in the world that look beautiful at night.

    Imagine thousands upon thousands of rooms in one single building, with bathrooms, hallways, bars and restaurants in tow. Sounds bigger than anything humanity has ever built? Buildings capable of housing a small town are not a figment of the imagination, but pure reality. Buildings of such a size are obviously not family homes, but sprawling hotels in some of the biggest and busiest cities of the world.

    As a guest lodging in a hotel this big, you would need some very good maps, but if you are ever in the situation of not being able to find the exit in some of the top 5 most gigantic hotels in the world, at least you’ll have the certainty that they are a beautiful place to get lost in.

  • The longest train trips in the world

    In the age of jet travel, fewer and fewer people take the train when traveling, and the reasons are obvious: it takes a fraction of the time needed for a train trip, it is more comfortable and you can travel greater distances without minding the obstacles, across mountains and oceans.

    But those travelers who feel some measure of nostalgia for the long-gone days when traveling was not quite as widespread as today will probably still look fondly at trains and railway stations.

    A train trip is far from being a waste of time even today, even if it takes as much time as a whole holiday would last. You get to meet interesting people, you rush past wonderful scenery and do some introspection on your way to some great destination. For railway fans, here are the longest train trips in the world.

    In temperate regions, it’s already the beginning of winter, and if you’re lucky to be in the middle of a cold winter with snow and ice, like in the good old times, then people have probably already started enjoying the wonders of frozen water.

    Staging snowball fights or ice skating outside are the best parts of winter, especially if you have a whopping huge ice skating rink at your disposal. Even if the technicalities of a double loop jump escape you, ice skating is good fun for everyone (especially if you don’t mind a few scraped knees and elbows). So if you want to ice skate in style, check out some of the best outdoor ice skating destinations in the world.

    Many monuments are built in order to commemorate an important person or event, but others seem to have no purpose at all except for making people who see them do a double take and perhaps question their eyesight.

    Some monuments from around the world are plain strange, which actually makes them more enjoyable, and they make a case that monuments are not boring except if you’re a history buff. If you’re traveling anywhere near these places, arm yourself with a camera, and prepare to feel like Alice in Wonderland – here are some of the weirdest monuments in the world.

  • The best destinations for hitchhiking in the world

    photo by Vicki Watkins on Flickr

    Hitchhiking can be seen as a means for an end for a backpacker or budget traveler who wants to save every penny – you give up the comfort of a bus or a train and you accept the prospect of waiting for long hours on the side of the road, hoping that a passing car will notice you and take you to your destination either for free or for a meager sum.

    But for other travelers, hitchhiking can become the point of the whole trip – you get to meet new and possibly interesting people, make friends among the locals, and see a country in a non-traditional way without relying too much on maps and brochures. In other words, hitchhiking can be an adventure, so here are the best destinations for hitchhiking in the world where you can experience this adventure.

    For food lovers, holidays are an exciting chance to try some new cuisine. While you may have your favourite restaurants at home, nothing is quite the same as trying traditional pizza in Italy, Borsch soup in Russia, or freshly baked bread from France.

    So when deciding where to go, the food that’ll be available there can be a very important factor in making your final decision. You may be staying in budget hotels or trying to save money in other ways, but food is definitely a worthwhile expense whilst on holiday so we will try to help you eat your way around Europe.
