    The oceans and seas around the Asian continent couldn’t be better for a relaxing cruise, if you want to fit in some island hopping into your holiday too. But as fun as it is to wander the high seas around Asia on a luxury boat, making your way into the continent on one of its many river can afford you some similarly unforgettable experiences.

    Many rivers on the vast Asian continent are so beautiful that they have become a thing of legends, and sailing on them for a couple of weeks will not only give you an eyefull of lovely landscapes, but it will allow you to learn a thing or two about the country’s culture as well. Here are some of the best river cruises in Asia for those who like to sail.

    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.

  • The highest cities in the world (and why you should visit them)

    country_tibet_19

    Altitude comes with a lot of drawbacks: you have trouble breathing the thin air, you can get altitude sickness, and the weather is much colder than in the plains. But strangely enough people still live in these rather inhospitable conditions, and more than that, there are flourishing cities at heights where many people haven’t even been yet.

    These cities prove that humans have an astonishing capacity to adapt, and more than that, to¬† make a decent living among the clouds. So prepare to catch your breath and climb up to the highest cities in the world,because there’s no shortage of reasons why you should visit them.

    Street food is a gift from heaven for travelers who are backpacking on a shoestring in some faraway country, and who prefer a taste of the local cuisine instead of international  fast-food chain fare.

    And it’s not just budget travelers who sing praises to these cheap and convenient meals, but also consecrated foodies too, who often travel great distances in search of some unique recipe, preferably served on a stick at street corners.

    But since street food is chiefly sold to satisfy the taste buds of the locals, a traveler from another part of the globe might have a hard time getting her or his palate used to the novel tastes and aromas. Here’s a list of the weirdest street food in the world, and if you can get these meals down then there’s no street food on the planet that you can’t ingest.

  • Top 10 most famous mountains in the world

    Mont Blanc, France

    One of the first things that kids learn in geography classes is how high them mountains in their respective countries are, and of course all of them are compared to Mount Everest, or some other peak that is among the highest in the world. Mountains have somehow become a reason for national pride in many countries, and woe is the country that is unfortunate enough to have only plains and hills on its territory.

    So naturally, when we visit another country, mountains are an instant attraction (well, maybe only for those who are into hiking and trekking). In any case, should you wonder which mountains are famous enough to be checked out during your travels, here’s a list (in no particular order) of some of the most famous peaks in the world.
