Travel Destinations You Might Not Think Of This Year

There is no doubt that springtime is one of the most popular times of the year for traveling. Most of the world is warming up from the winter and people are out and mingling again. If you are thinking about going somewhere and experiencing a new culture this season, there are a lot of variables to consider.

Are you taking a vacation to relax or to see an amazing culture you've never witnessed? Do you want to see historical sites or simply interact with locals in their own environment? The parts of travel you are most interested in should shape your destination decisions, and with this in mind, here are some locations many people do not think of when planning their trips.

Everyone goes to China to see the Great Wall or Forbidden City, but if you are more into watching people than monuments, China has plenty of other locations to offer. The best place to visit, other than Beijing, is definitely Macau. Across the bay from Hong Kong, Macau is a world-famous travel site and the most densely populated region in the world. Once a Portugese colony, Macau gained independence in 1999 and is a standalone region like Hong Kong. With a 96% Chinese population, however, you will not miss the local culture in any way when you visit.

Macau is full of things to do and see including beaches, islands, old ruins and churches, Chinese temples, art galleries, and museums. If you are more into doing, rather than seeing, Macau is also a rich area and one of the biggest party cities in the world. As the global leader in gambling, there are an endless amount of hotels, casinos, clubs, bars, and restaurants for visitors to enjoy. According to Bet Fair, Macau even has three of the biggest casinos in the world. With different locations catering specifically to families, couples, or single people looking for a fun night, there is sure to be something for everyone in Macau.

Another one of the most densely populated areas in the world, Malta is a great little island to visit for anyone looking for a great time. Located in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, Malta always has a great climate that will not interfere with travelers’ plans. While Malta is a small island with beautiful beaches that attract tourists looking for relaxation each year, it is also home to a huge variety of other attractions for its size.

If you decide to give Malta a visit, make sure not to miss the many wonderful historical sites around the nation. With a rich history of culture, Malta is brimming with archaeological sites from various different periods of time including ancient ruins and Roman temples. It is famous for the Hypogeum, an ancient network of underground chambers used as a burial site and temple. With other attractions such as museums and galleries that preserve Malta’s rich history—as well as numerous festivals, carnivals, and even an international fireworks show—there is always a party happening in Malta.

Like Malta, the Philippines also has a rich history that has been influenced by many different cultures over time. Located right next to Malaysia, the Philippines has a history of mixing Asian and European culture, especially Spanish, and it has over 20 regional languages. As a chain of more than 7,000 islands, the Philippines is an incredibly diverse and amazing place to visit for anyone who is thinking about traveling this year.

Not only do the Philippines have several of the world’s biggest cities worth checking out, it is also home to a huge variety of nature-watching locations. Visit some of the best coral reefs in the world or climb to the top of a volcano—you will never run out of places to see in this country. The culture is worth eating up as well, with a huge variety of local cuisines from nearly everywhere in the world. The best part of all in the Philippines is the cost, because almost everything is reasonably priced and you won’t have to empty your bank account just to visit!

There are tons of amazing places in the world to travel to, so there is no reason to visit the same places over and over. Go explore this season and find somewhere new. Meet new people and eat new food and see new things, you will be glad you did.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
