A river Shannon Boating Holiday in Ireland

images19

I have recently come back from what I can only describe as the most relaxing and interesting vacation I have ever been on. This year myself and my wife were looking at holiday options and based on a recommendation by some friends we thought that a trip to Ireland might give us a dose of culture and scenery. I had only ever heard good things about the country, so we started planing. We were informed that the best way to see the real Irish countryside was by boat, cruising on the river Shannon which runs through the center of the entire country. So we did our research and booked a cruiser from a little town called Banagher. We had never operated a boat before but we were given a brief class beforehand which made everything easy.

We booked the cruiser for three nights, we thought that this would allow us time to see the rest of the country and it did. The rest of the country was fantastic but the truth is I never wanted to leave that boat. The river is full of history covering three thousand years, the ruins of churches, abbeys, castles and towers are everywhere and free to explore. Not far from Banagher is the ruins of an ancient seventh century city which you can cruise right up to and walk around. It was all very extraordinary. You will never be cruising for long without meeting a lovely village and stopping in at a pub. One pub we visited was 350 years old and the old part of the bar was preserved from this time. Another small village had huge deserted stone buildings and military towers. A local told us this was in case Napoleon was to attack England by coming through Ireland. All of these structures still stand like ornaments on the landscape passed down through generations until there meaning has been eroded to just spectacular sites. Cruising by low lying green meadows to the sweet backing notes of wildlife all around really recharge my soul. As the famous Irish Poet Yeats said ‘Come with me oh Human Child, to the waters and the wild’ my natural human instincts for exploring, for the wild were satisfied and the scenic delights that crossed my eyes will never be forgotten. Until next year when I will return to the river Shannon.

There is a company called Discover the Shannon Link: which arrange holidays on the river and were really helpful with us.

Advices how to choose a hotel

images9

Book hotels in advance. Hotel prices tend to rise during holidays and seasonal days. You can save 30-40 % by making a booking 2-3 months in advance.

2. Book hotels located near a public transport like a metro/station. Remember that large cities always have traffic jams. Thats why a metro/station can come in handy.

3. The hotel must be easily accessible from the airport/railway/seaport/carpark you are going to use.

4. Remember: the hotel must be reasonably priced, but not too cheap to avoid disappointments.

5. Dont be afraid to book the hotel by yourself. It is cheaper than using the travel agencies where they charge you with a commission. You will also have time to read hotel reviews on the Internet before making your choice.

6. Pay attention to the check in and check out time of the hotels. In general the hotels have a check-in time of 12.00 pm or later, while some tourists arrive at the city in the morning.

7. Once you have chosen your hotel, make sure you find a map or a tourist guide of the region. Most of the hotels will provide you with the information you need. That way you will have time to plan your vacation on an efficient way.

8. If you only plan to eat and sleep in the hotel choose a hotel near the centre of the city. If you are a creative person, consider to book a design hotel.

9. When you book hotels located in the centre of the city, make sure that the window is faced inside the hotel. That would allow you to avoid traffic noise during the night, which is a problem in the centre of the city.

10. Pay attention to small details: room service, smoking or not, check for noise isolation on the windows, availability of a swimming pool, gym and so on.

11. When booking a room in a warm country, make sure that the room has an air-conditioner. Often hotels only mention their air conditioning in the hotel facilities.

12. Try to find a hotel with a possibility to use a taxi transfer to the hotel. That way you dont pay too much for a local taxi. Besides, if you dont know the local language, you might even lose more time.

Eastern Mangroves Hotel Complex In Abu Dhabi Is On Track For Completion This Year

images20

The Tourism Development and Investment Company (TDIC) has announced that the Eastern Mangroves complex in Abu Dhabi is on schedule and is expected to be fully operating by the end of 2012.

The new complex will feature a five-star hotel for tourists taking Abu Dhabi holidays, as well as a number of residential buildings and a 30-berth marina.

The TDIC is developing the complex and the first phrase the Eastern Mangroves Hotel and Spa by Anantara – is due to be completed in June. The residential buildings and the marina are scheduled for completion in the last quarter of this year.

The Eastern Mangroves Hotel & Spa by Anantara is set against the citys eastern mangroves and has 222 spacious rooms and suites. The rooms are equipped with modern amenities including air conditioning, in-room entertainment systems, flat screen televisions, and Wi-Fi internet, as well as bathrooms with rainforest showers, bath tubs, and Anantara bathroom products.

The Director of Operations Middle East for Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas and the General Manager of Eastern Mangroves Hotel & Spa by Anantara, Michel Koopman, explained: “This is really about the quality, not the quantity. It’s about positioning and the quality of the restaurants and the spa. For me, it’s a hotel for a pampering weekend. It’s not a hotel for big tours or big MICE [meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions] events. It’s not that.

“Our focus is on the quality of the experience and the long-term positioning of the hotel. Our focus is not to fill it up, but to make sure that we have the right clientele in.”

Facilities at the one of the newest Abu Dhabi hotels include the Pachaylen restaurant with Thai dishes; Ingredients, the all-day restaurant that offers international cuisine and two outdoor terraces; the two-level Mangroves Lounge where guests can relax and enjoy holidays in Abu Dhabi with a refreshing cocktail; and Impressions, the roof-top bar that offers comfortable sofas and views overlooking the city and mangroves.

During holidays to Abu Dhabi, guests can indulge in the Anantara Spa where they can enjoy a wide selection of signature Anantara treatments, a traditional Turkish hammam, steam and sauna facilities, and separate male and female areas.

The luxury Abu Dhabi hotel has an infinity pool and terrace, prayer rooms, a modern fitness centre, a business centre and Majlis, a ballroom, and a boutique shop.

Make Your Own Rules With A Travel Insurance Review

images8

When planning a vacation, most people only think of the destination, but the importance of travel insurance cannot be stressed enough. Adequate travel insurance is the trekker’s only safeguard abroad. For those covered by adequate insurance, travelers’ nightmares, like accidents and lost baggage, become things of the past.

There are a lot of different insurance policies for travelers available through agencies and independent insurers and this makes the selection process rather tedious. Travel insurance reviews are a great place to start narrowing your choices, even when you think you know what you want. With these reviews, you virtually eliminate information asymmetry and can make the most optimal decision based on data on hand.

Don’t be fooled by fake reviews, and trust only those written by real travelers. This will help you stay away from bad policies and help you pinpoint the good ones. It is an easy road when learning from other people.

It is good to see the layout of the forest before choosing a tree. Look for consumer feedback pages and compare different insurance policies. The entire policy can be judged by its cost, extent of coverage, and provider reliability.

Keep in mind that there are bargains out there that offer better packages at lower prices. Comprehensive packages are available for the person with a budget. This is why it is important that you resort to a travel insurance review before buying anything.

In conducting your review, narrow it down to three to five companies. Check out their offerings and see if you can get consumer feedback for their line of products. Reputable insurance providers will not let you down when you are in jeopardy.

The next and most natural step is to inquire about prices. One need not sacrifice coverage for affordability. It does not always follow that the better options are the more pricey ones.

This means that one can never be too meticulous when it comes to insurance policies. Read several travel insurance reviews and see whether or not the policies fit your travelling needs. There are times when travel insurance policies provide excessive coverage for a high price or limited coverage for a very cheap cost.

The secret is pinpointing the kind of coverage you need before looking through piles of policies. Concern yourself with cost and budget next. Doing these two things will facilitate the search process.

For reliable results, conduct a travel insurance review yourself. A travel insurance comparison can help you make an informed decision when you need to avail of travel insurance. Never be fooled again into spending beyond your needs.

Find Cheap Travel Trailers Right Around The Corner At Rv Repo Auctions

images7

In the current difficult economic times, it is becoming increasingly attractive for RVers to find cheap travel trailers. If you’ve been dreaming of hitting the open road, a used travel trailer is the best way to go. How much money you will need in your budget depends greatly on where you purchase.

Buying directly from an owner through a classified ad is the most common route for potential travel trailer seekers. While you are likely to find one in a reasonable condition, you are unlikely to be getting a cheap deal. Most owners are selling to pay off their financial obligations or are trying to get as much extra cash as possible.

In today’s modern society, we have the superb resource of the internet that can provide us with almost any information that we require. Finding cheap travel trailers is no exception. If you would still like to pursue the purchase from an owner, you could search Craigslist or do a Google search for any private websites that are selling a travel trailer in your area.

Another option worth considering is an online auction or a public auction in your near vicinity. The easiest way to find RV repo auctions is joining a website that actively searches out auctions, and collects and categorizes them for you. You may be surprised at how many auctions are held right there in your city. The website can give you details of when and where the auction will take place, and the type of items to be sold.

This will be your best source to find cheap travel trailers. Vehicles/trailers have incredibly low prices, simply to ensure that they are sold on the day of the auction. They are most likely repossessed from owners who have defaulted on their payments, and need to be sold to make up for the financial loss of the organization and to avoid storage costs.

To ensure that you are getting a good deal for the travel trailer, you should get an idea of it’s actual value by consulting a buying guide. In most cases, you will see that the trailer is being sold at way below the trade-in value.

Remember, with an RV it’s critical to save your money up front on the purchase. Don’t try to recoup at the sale. Thoroughly research all your options and decide which one will get you the best deal on cheap travel trailers. Then, enjoy the trip and the remarkable amount of money you’ve saved.

Travel agents offer holiday deals

Many travel firms have kept tour prices unchanged while others are offering big discounts of 30-35 per cent for the upcoming National Holiday early next month (September 2).

The Sai Gon Giai Phong newspaper reported on Monday that the The He Tre Tourism Co, in collaboration with Vietnam Airlines, will offer two tours of the northeastern region at unchanged prices despite it being a holiday, when prices normally rise significantly.

Those who take the tours will be able to enjoy several attractions including the Dong Van Stone Plateau, Lung Cu Flag Pole, Ma Pi Leng Pass, Ba Be Lake, Nguom Ngao Cave and Ban Gioc Waterfall.

The tours, lasting six or seven days starting from August 30, cost VND9.8 million (US$470) and VND11.4 million ($540), respectively. This would be up to 35 per cent lower than current market prices, the company said.

For the National Day holiday, Fiditour is offering tours from HCM City to favoured destinations like Phu Quoc and Con Dao islands with discounts of up to 30 per cent.

A three-day all-inclusive tour price for Phu Quoc will be reduced by VND1.57 million ($75) to VND5.19 million ($250) per visitor, while that for Con Dao will drop by VND300,000 ($14) to VND6.46 million ($310).

Doan Thi Thanh Tra, marketing and communication director of the Saigontourist Travel Service Co, said that in keeping with the policy to promote domestic tourism, the company had guaranteed that it would not only refrain from increasing tour prices on this occasion, but also offer many cost-saving tours.

Tourists from HCM City can choose tours to Buon Ma Thuot, Ha Noi, Hai Phong, Sapa, Da Nang, Nha Trang, Da Lat, or Phan Thiet with prices ranging from VND2.5-6.5 million ($120-310).

Besides, there are longer tours to the northern, central and western regions priced from VND5 million ($240) onwards, departing from HCM City on September 1 and 2.

Since this year’s National Day holiday falls on Monday, most visitors tend to choose short tours of 3-4 days.

On the occasion of the National Day, Saigontourist would launch its river tours, Tra said.

Recommended tours include a half-day tour to Cu Chi Tunnel, Long Phuoc Garden and Binh Quoi Tourist Village; and a full-day tour to Can Gio and Long An. The tours cost VND294,000-2.23 million ($14-106) per person.

Ton That Hoa, general secretary of the HCM City Tourism Association (HTA), said that the association would sign this week a domestic tourism stimulus programme with Vietjet Air.

The agreement would be a win-win situation for everyone, Hoa said, adding: “Travel firms will have more opportunities to exploit cheap air tickets to sell tours and consumers will have the opportunity to buy cheap travel tours.”

Making Your Holiday Parties Memorable

images20

With the holiday season approaching, its time to start considering planning for parties. Some of the most creative, fun parties revolve around themes. But decorating for specific themes can be more difficult, especially if you dont know what to look for. But there are tons of places to get unique decorating supplies for your specific theme. One of the most memorable decorations you can get to have your party stick out among the crowd is a life-size statue to highlight your theme.

Halloween Parties
Halloween kicks off the holiday season in style. This is one of the best occasions for picking a specific theme rather than getting out your old standby spooky dcor. You could go with a pirate theme, which is always fun for everyone, and have a life-size pirate captain to greet your guests and trick-or-treaters. Even if you stick with the traditional spooky theme, a life-size witch or grim reaper can make your party stand out.

Christmas Parties
It seems every year there are dozens of Christmas parties, and they all feel like the same party. Christmas is a great time to stand out among the crowd by choosing an interesting theme. You get a life-size snowman for a winter wonderland theme. Or, if you want something particularly classy you can do a Nutcracker theme. A life-size nutcracker and the classical sound track are sure to make your party memorable.

New Years Parties
New Years Eve is a great time to play with themes. A glamorous party can be turned into a Hollywood themed party with life-size replicas of your favorite celebrities. For a more laid back party, you could have a karaoke night with a life-size Elvis up on the stage.

Themed holiday parties offer your guests something new and interesting. Using a life-size statue to help create your theme will really make your holiday parties memorable.
