5 Reasons You Should Visit Almaty

Kazakhstan is a cosmopolitan place that borders the cultural crossroads between Asia and Europe. The vast country stretches from China to the Caspian Sea. It is one of Asia’s diverse cultures where Russians and Kazakhs border the Ukrainians, Tatars, Uzbeks, Germans, and scores of other cultures mix harmoniously.

Almaty is the country’s financial and cultural center and custodian of the essence. It is also the biggest city falling short of being the capital city after the young flash rival, Astana. The town sits amazingly below the snow-capped peaks of Zailysky-Alatau Mountains. It is pleasantly green and very relaxed with fountains, fancy malls, black-windowed SUVs and busy and pretty busy boulevards. The town is modern and a sophisticated hub for booming petro-economy, one that has many surprises that make Almaty the focus of any tour around Kazakhstan.

  1. The wonderful ski spot fit for royalty

The ski resort of Shymbulak is about 30 minutes drive from the city. In 2014 the resort became famous in when Prince Harry and his then-girlfriend Cressida Bonas went skiing on the slopes. It is ritzy and the sunny, chilly winters guarantee varying good conditions and crispy cold snow well into the month of April. The ski lifts leopard-print cabins are painted so in honor of the snow leopards that are rarely seen roaming the mountains. The 4kmseries of ski lifts run up to 3180 meters Talgar pass.

  1. You get to enjoy yourself along the Silk Road

The bustling green bazaar market halls, filled with traders from across far as Korea to central Asia gather to hawk are a fantastic way to get familiar with the multifaceted ethnic mix of Kazakhstan. The foothills near Almaty are said to be home to the apple fruit, and it is said to massive proportions. Almaty translates to “father of the apple”.

 

  1. The impressive socialist architecture and art

hub.jpg

Soviet War Memorial in Almaty looms vividly in front of the city’s former army command center. The city’s finest museum, Kasteyev State Arts Museum, was named after Abilkhan Kasteev-Kazakhs greatest painter. Along with the huge collection is the intriguing room dedicated to his depiction of life in the former Soviet era from portraits of the peasant life to the canvases of the fast developing landscape.

  1. The second tallest wooden building in the worldnki

Proudly standing in the leafy Panfilov Park is the Cathedral of the Holy Ascension; a mix of pastel-colored gables, a gilded dome and brightly painted tiles that rise 60m high. All built with no single nail.

  1. The Russian baths are the finest in Central Asia

The Arasan Bath’s complex in Almaty is the most highly styled bathhouse in this area. It was built in the early 1980s as a notable statement of the Soviet ambition. Pick your slippers, conical felt hat (shapka) and a towel and join fellow bathers in the fiercely hot Russian steam room (parilka). Bundles of birch or oak leaves (vyeniki) are used to thrash on each other. This wince-inducing practice is believed to improve circulation. From the parilka, you are to upturn over yourself a bucket of gasp-inducing cold water. To finish up a dip in cool plunge-pool under the domed atrium will leave you refreshed.

Why You Must Visit Sarajevo In 2018

The recent traumatic history of the city is well documented but what is hardly know is the welcoming, warm and amazingly cool exotic travel destination the city is. Sarajevo is surrounded on three of its sides by mountains and it is where the twin strains of ottoman and Hapsburg architecture come together. Trains and buses rumble past bazaars and mosques, and minarets take their place on the skyline together with the Catholic spires and Orthodox domes.

Below are reasons to make Sarajevo your next destination for exotic travel

eorpws

The captivating Old Bazaar

Suspended on the steep Miljacka valley slopes, Baščaršija, the city’s old Bazaar is a smoky, hectic and noisy locality that is unlike any exotic travel place in the Balkans.

The narrow alleys burst with antique Ottoman monuments, the sweet-smelling ćevabdžinica and several street-corner cafés, and a varied assortment of stalls each selling all types of goods, from sandals and slippers to copperware and coffee sets.

o

The one place with the best cevapcici in the Balkans

The legendary staple in the region can be found here. The high calorie spiced minced meat is typically served with kajmak-(a slightly sour and thick cheese) or ajvar (red pepper spread which is first roasted) and somun- a doughy delicious flatbread. Ćevabdžinica Petica is known amongst the locals as the one place with the best of these morsels.

The coffee

Bosanska kafa is served on a thin metallic tray; this bubbling coffee is served from an attractive džezva (copper vessel) into small fildžan (tumblers). Sugar lumps can be added – the regular practice is to dip the sugar lump into coffee then taking a tiny nibble to help customize the taste.

The two world-class summer festivals

During July, the old town streets rock big time throughout the Baščaršija Nights. This is a month-long music gathering from folk, rock and classical to the theatre, ballet, comedy, and opera and it is free.

Augusts’ Sarajevo Film Festival is more prestigious and bigger adding to your exotic travel experience. The festival has grown ever since its start during the 1995 siege to turn into the greatest movie gathering of Eastern Europe.

fkw.png

The most captivating architecture in the Balkans

Numerous elegant monuments all though Sarajevo are proof of the 4 centuries of dominion from the east. The most exquisite is the Gazi Husref Beg Mosque and above it towers the Sahat-kula- the striking seventeen-century clock with hours of prayer marked in Arabic numeral. Also, check out the Sebilj fountain.

In contrast, the buildings down the Ferhadija Street have an Austro-Hungarian orientation – as are much more along Obala Kulina bana- an elegant riverside fare found further south.

The most symbolic building in Sarajevo is the National Library. It was obliterated in 1992, this noble neo-Moorish construction reopened in 2014. Its renovation is the most obvious proof of Sarajevo’s renaissance.

ejrfhr

The most important Bosnian War exhibitions

Inevitably, Sarajevo is full of sights attributed to the siege. However, the most significant exhibition is Galerija 11/7/95. It stands as a proper memorial to the traumatic events that widely spread at Srebrenica on this eponymous day. The show is presented in a potent way, courtesy of interviews, audio-visual documents and black and white imagery.

It is located 33 kilometers off the eastern coast of Taiwan on an area of 16,2 square kilometers. For everyone who wants to run away from the crowded land, traffic and pollution this is the perfect place to relax. Once you are surrounded with green mountains, coast and plush vegetation, you will enjoy the vacation.

Top 5 Must-Have Travel Apps to Kickstart 2018

Thanks to technology and smart devices, booking hotel reservations, flights, car rentals, planning itineraries, and looking up restaurants and food hubs, have never been so easy. In this article, we will share with you our favorite travel apps for 2018.

ipad-632394_960_720.jpg

Yuggler

Travelling with kids is never easy. They need constant sensory input and would easily get cranky if bored. If you have kids and can relate to this, Yuggler is your best friend. This app helps you find kid-friendly activities in your destination. It allows you to set filters to check out different places, photos, and even tips depending on your children’s ages. It is currently only available to iOS users but the developer is building an Android version to go live soon.

ME

Sometimes, the travel experience is better without a tour guide. You get to explore and learn the culture yourself. You establish a connection with the locals. You learn how to get to a certain place by asking around, or by reading signs (and using your instincts). If you are that kind of traveller, MAPS.ME should be on your smartphone now. No matter where you are in the world, whether you are in a remote area or a bustling city, you can find your way because it can be used offline. All you need to do is download the maps ahead of time. It is available to both iOS and Android users.

Google Translate

This one is not new, but it never gets old and overrated. Learning a foreign language does not happen in 2 weeks, so this is definitely a great tool for you to be able to communicate with the locals when on a vacation in a foreign land. If you don’t know this yet, Google Translate can be used offline and provides real time translation. All you need to do is choose and download a language ahead of time. Aim the camera at the text you need translated and voila!

XE

It is a fact that many people do poorly in Math. And even if you are a Math expert, it’s no fun to have to manually convert rates into different currencies every time you need to. XE is an app that allows you to punch in the numbers that you need converted. You don’t have to pull up your phone’s calculator every time you need to convert an amount to a specific currency. Want to quickly find out how much 8,945 Vietnamese Dong is in US Dollars? XE does that for you.

imac-606765_960_720.jpg

Like A Local

People travel not only to see different places, but also to experience a different culture. Travelling is more memorable if you get to experience how locals live, go where locals go, and do what they do. Like A Local gives you just that. It features tips from locals that give you an idea where to go, what to try, what to do, and where to eat. The best thing? You don’t even need internet connection!

These are my top apps to prep myself with more globe exploring in 2018. What are your favourite travel apps? Come and share with us!

Heritage Walk and Food Tour in Little India, Singapore

Ladyredot, co-founder, Irene is honoured to be invited by Monster Day Tours to participate in their Little India Walk and Foodie Express tour. Little India is one of Singapore ethic district where it is filled with rich North and South Indian culture.

Being a Singaporean, I have not been to Little India except for Mustafa, where it is a 24 hours shopping mall. [P.S: You can actually get anything (food, daily essentials, imported brands etc.) there]

We gathered together with other invited guests at 10am in the morning at Little India MRT, Exit E. It was very enjoyable; meeting different partners like Beds & Dreams Inn and other lifestyle bloggers. Dani, is a very cheerful, energetic and passion about her job. She is our tour guide, who previously works in a hotel industry. Together with Yap, tour assistance, who is equally enthusiastic in guiding the group and sharing information about what we eat and see. You can see from the pictures, they actually wore the traditional India costumes – Men, Achkan and Women, Shalwar Kameez.

Tour Guide, Monster Day Tours SingaporeMurals, Little India Singapore

There are many beautiful painted Murals along streets of Little India. The murals are all related to Indian culture. Watch out for them the next time you stepped into Little India!

The first attraction is Former House of Tan Teng Niah. It is a colourful 2 storey villa, a former house of last surviving Chinese, who owned several sweet-making factories along Serangoon Road and rubber business. He is also the first to create a five-foot way (five feet wide space for pedestrians to walk) around the estate.

IMG_9151Little India, Singapore

Monster Day Tours have done many types of research and trial walks around Little India. They found a HDB Block 668 where you can get a bird’s eye view of Singapore city area – Bugis, Beach Road, City Hall and Raffles Place. This is my favourite spot to take Insta-worthy pictures.

Singapore, City

After 45 minutes of touring Little India, we reached the first food spot – Komala Vilas. They are set up in Singapore since 1947 and have become a household name till today. They offer authentic Indian cuisine at a very reasonable price. It serves both South and North Indian food which gives the best of both options to patrons like myself who loves to taste as many as possible in one place.

Komala Vilas, Little India, Singapore

Monster Day Tours have prepared for us 3 dishes to share among the different tables and each a cup of Masala Tea. We have Dosai Meal, Bhattura and Poori Set. They are made of flour and comes with different vegetarian dipping sauce. The only difference is the cooking method. As a first timer to Indian cuisine (other than Roti Prata), it’s indeed a great start for the day to have such delicious and fulfilling brunch. “It’s really yummy!”

Komala Vilas, Little India, SingaporeKomala Vilas, Little India, Singapore

Yap, went around each table to give the history of Komala and explain what Masala tea is made of. The tea has five basic spices: cardamom, ginger, clove, black pepper and cinnamon. It is very fragrant and leaves a sweet aftertaste. One thing to add on, their home made Bundung – rose syrup drink is the best in Singapore (so far) I have tried. Do give it a try before you leave the restaurant.

Komala Vilas, Little India, SingaporeKomala Vilas, Little India, SingaporeKomala Vilas, Little India, Singapore

Next, we head to the highlight of this tour, which is a secret destination that Monster Day Tour did not reveal in the itinerary. I shall leave this as a top secret. You be surprised to know that such attraction is found in Little India. Do join the walking tour to find out where!

We then continued to Indian Heritage Centre. It is a new building that opened in 2015 and there are many art & cultural tours available. Around the centre, there are many shops selling Indian costumes, accessories, home decorations and tibits. We got a box of tradition Indian sweets and biscuits. The traditional Indian sweets are mainly made with sugar, milk or condensed milk and flavoured with almonds, pistachios and nuts. It’s exceptionally sweet. Beware if you are not a sweet tooth person.

Little India, Singapore

The final destination is at Tekka Hawker Centre, where it is a 3 storey building. In the first level, it is a wet market, the second level is a hawker centre and the third level is a dry market where it sells mainly clothing, dried food and accessories. Part of this tour is to taste 10 different local Indian food. Hence, Monster Day Tours team have prepared Mee Rebus, Mee Soto, Mee Siam, Nasi Brani, Satay and Indian Rojak.

Tekka Centre, SingaporeTekka Centre, Singapore

Dani gives the group information on how the food is prepared and their uniqueness. Personally, I love Mee Soto and Satay. They scouted around to find the best stall in this hawker. Tekka Hawker Centre food is also one of the cheapest hawker in Singapore. Do come with an empty stomach and get a taste of all the delicious local food.

Tekka Centre, Singapore

I am grateful that I spent a wonderful Saturday morning with Monster Day Tours, knowing more about Singapore and our Indian culture. I would like to Thank You their CEO, TY for this invitation.
