Hanoi City at Vietnam.

'Lokasi Percutian Yang Menarik di Vietnam'

 “This week, I will bring you to holiday place of the most popular and special
in Vietnam , famous and it is the....”

at Vietnam.

          Hanoi City is the capital of Vietnam and become the second city that have a big population in the country, so you should visit this city to discover about its special. Let check it out for a great views and experience at this city. I prefer to get there by bus at night, because from my location right now it will take about 14 hours travel. It was a long way and tiring, although we decided to take a bus with beds. It was an unexpected even, unfortunately, he bus left us somewhere at the border of Hanoi. It’s about 5-6 km distance to the city center. 

          It’s different for some other cities, where the bus terminal always nearby the center). Or maybe we took a different route. If you see from the maps, there is a large area to move inside the city area. Hence, we had to take another bus to move into the city. After we make a discussion, we end it with conclusion to go to a certain hotel that can provide emissaries to the station and perhaps they can provide it free up there.

          We try to take a cheap hotel nearby and found one. The rooms are a little bit dirty and stuffy so I preferred to look anything like the bed provided in the bus that is much cleaner than this. I refused to pay the amount demanded by them for such improperly vehicles (one of the main item to consider) both verbally and physically. We could not believe that it’s so hard to have the exact requirement and wasting time searching in the street, such a conflicts. Let just pass over from this episode and we end up to stay at the hotel Ha Noi Boutique, which gave us a small but clean room ($12/double room with private bathroom and free internet). Seem that proven to be difficult to find a nice accommodation at an affordable price in Hanoi. Actually, there are some hotel can provide us of what we need but we have to pay more for such facilities. Hanoi city is quite an expensive city.

After took some rest and get bath, we started planning for a visit to one of the oldest houses in town in just $0.20/person. It is located at Ma May (one of the important commercial area) and it’s quit easy to find the address box and seemed quite nice. Then we decided to have a visit to the temple located on a small island in the lakes at the city center called Hoan Kiem. It was a modern kind of temple without great architectural landscape to discover.

Continue our journey to walk through Hanoi, we arrived at the Ho Chi Minh Complex. Here you can have a visit to the museum (entrance ticket Ho Chi Minh Museum is 1 euro/person). You can see a great attraction in this area. Besides the museums there is also the Mausoleum of Ho Chi Minh City where you can see the great architectural work of it. Although Ho Chi Minh is a capital city, I could not see the huge amount of visitors to this museum. Take precaution because photography is not allowed in this area and don’t ruin your vacation with a ticket from the authority.

          In the evening, we decided to go to a enjoy Vietnamese uppet show. The cost for this show is just $7/person. It was interesting and very enjoyable thing to do. There are no translation, but it's pretty easy to follow the story by just watching their performance.

          In the next day, we decidedto have a visit to the Temple of Literature before leaving Hanoi. The cost for the ticket is $0.20/person. This temple is actually the oldest education center in Vietnam. It was so nice enough to have the opportunity to see their traditional music performance. The musicians used some music equipment that I had never seen before and we were very impressed by the representative there.

          We just stay in Hanoi for a short term only because the city appeared to be very agitated and exhausting. There is no problem if you have enough budget for transportation. Otherwise, motorcycles and bustle provide the unpleasant smell. We are not so attracted to the traveling markets around so much. 

          Although there were some sights that we did not see them before. So, we decided to continue our journey to Laos. Perhaps there is much exciting places to visit in that city.

'Lokasi Percutian Yang Menarik di Chile'

 “This week, I will bring you to holiday place of the most popular and special
in Portillo, famous and it is the....”

Ski redemption in Portillo
at Chile.

It is located at Portillo, Chile. It’s happen when the July mercury climbs close to 100, the minds of all great skiers will turn toward what they have missed opportunities in the last season. In that particular time, you quit after for only one back country lap. The weekend to precious Silverton skipped. Those is for the dawn patrols you slept through.

Come in July, those mindless moments become punishable offenses. You can find redemption down south where you can find the high alpine in Chile and Argentina just got strike with a huge storm that kicked off and promises to be in a deep season in the Andes atmosphere. It’s been almost six feet of cold blower certainly bodes very well for this year South American ski season. Chile's with 66-year-old Portillo is trumpeting its fresh coat with a promise of an awesome August face shots.

For your information, there are several ski areas in the Andes. The venerable Portillo is just like the Aspen a lot. Exposed steeps, unreal views and a historic luxury hotel have push the Portillo experience to a higher level in the region.

        For a South America's oldest resort, Portillo echoes across time with history. Interior walls of Hotel Portillo's halls are framed with hundreds of black and white pictures. A stroll around the hotel is an unforgettable history lesson in South American skiing. There are wool-clad skiers plying the steeps on difficult boards along beautiful images from the Southern Hemisphere's won the World Alpine Ski Championships in 1966. Back then when pioneering athletes like Jean-Claude Killy, Suzy Chaffee and Jimmie Heuga battled for podiums.

          Portillo is only a few hours from the Santiago airport. It is a decades-old favorite training area for nearly all the world's ski athlete. Some thick racers from all over rally at the Hotel Portillo took place every year for getting their ski legs skills back after a brief summer holiday. Some of them practicing their tucks, streak down the slopes and per-jumps on lonely. The resort also has daily slalom races for guests, a nod to its ski-racing heritage that guests can enjoy.

The hike to the terrain including the iconic Super Couloir. Must hit on every big-mountain that inside their dream list is limitless with terrifying sidestepping leading to the most daunting picturesque lines of the South. Hiking skiers are rewarded with a close-up beautiful view of Aconcagua at the higher elevations. It is the awesome 22,837-foot peak that ranks as the highest mountain in the region. While the views are striking gorgeous, it's fun to also experience the ground as you hike. At the mountain tops, you can find some fossilized sea shells. Just imagine of when those sky-scraping peaks were a beach in the past.

While the hotel is a gym, the alpine terrain is the main attraction to the skiers. At this quiet outpost near a heavy traffic connects Chile with Argentina. The ski area's 1,200 acres have plenty of dicey and steeps traverses accessing powder-filled bowls that will draw hordes of ski every summer. The area's also have 14 chairlifts include slingshot platters and that zip for up to five skiers at a time in the steepest terrain. The very ridiculously rowdy ride itself is thrilling. Enjoy the exiting of the dangling platters on near-vertical ice and exercise in adrenaline rush management.

You can see a lot of common science such as to bump into skiers you see in magazines and movies while walking around Portillo. Peek into a rocky overhang to find a plaque memorial the late Shane McConkey. He is a legend whose skiing prowess and still reverberate through the high ends. A moment at the plaque will push skiers into deeper challenges as following McConkey's soul-swelling creed to squeeze the maximum enjoyment in life. Stay includes every week for four meals a day. Many o the guests gather at Tío Bob's dining area for lunches that too easily turn into a three-bottle in the afternoon. Take a look to the lake of the Incas that become one of the best vistas in Tío Bob's and you must taste the tradition of Portillo visitors.

Ubiquitous ski village’s way north, the hotel is a respite from the bustling, because there is no village nearby. Portillo really is like a cruise ship at the sea and moored at 9,450 feet become the world's longest mountain range. There is nowhere to wander and if you ski the right way than your legs won't be eager to amble much than the bar or the wood-panelled. Afternoon tea is a cocktail hour fosters among Portillo's diverse guests. Ukrainian bankers chat with ladies from Texas and Taiwan doctors take selfies with their favourite servers. Austrian ski racers sign autographs for the ski school instructors. Many of the pro-level skiers are embraced just like long lost kin. Each week at Portillo is a homecoming of sorts as the same guests seem to return at the same time and creating like a family reunion feel.

          The televisions in the hotel rooms encourages for communal vibe. The hotel lobby is a vibrant great room with a lot of people playing games, reading books and hanging out for a long time. Rooms seem to be use just for sleeping. The dinners are served in community style with large tables and encouraging a blending of guests dressed in their best outfit. Movies in the theatre hall and a basement gymnasium keep their kids entertained while the elderly labour to tint their teeth with Malbec red at the hotel's bar.

At the bar, live bands in the piano rattle the hotel lobby after dinner while hotel guests enjoy for the late-night dance in the basement disco. Ladies dancing on the tables is a nightly occurrence inside the bar, a primer for the all-night boogie down in the disco. Usually on Saturday the situation change at Portillo thigh-ravaged. Bleary-eyed with goggle tanned guests are replaced with fresh-faced new guests eager to experience sport and with the same grinning wobble for a week later.
