Prepping yourself for Songkran Festival in Thailand

Songkran is the mark for the Thai New Year’s festival. The Thai New Year’s Day falls on 13 April every year, but the holiday period includes 14-15 April as well. The word “Songkran” comes from the Sanskrit word as “astrological passage”, meaning transformation and change. Splashing water is the symbol of purification and the washing away of one’s sins and bad luck. The festival itself is far from the actual meaning and spiritual ritual but has gone beyond as a commercial and tourist agenda. Be ready to get wet in Thai style! Here are some tips you need to prepare if you want to go to the festival.

1. Plan Well
The first thing that you need to do is plan your itinerary, whether you aim to attend the longest celebration of Songkran festival or you are seeking for the wildest water fight. If you choose the first one, Chiang Mai in Northern of Thailand might be the place to go since the events are longer and it has already started since one week before. If you prefer the wild one, go to Silom, which recognised as Bangkok financial and party district. Immerse yourself with the glamorous Thailand nightlife with world class DJ during Songkran and an unlimited amount of liquors.

2. Protect your Goods
Keep in mind that Songkran Festival involves water a lot as a part of the celebration. Make sure you have your own personal gadgets protected with waterproof casing because everybody is going to be wet. It is not advisable to use a sling bag, instead use fanny packs that are easy to attach around your waist and don’t bring unnecessary things if you feel that you don’t need it.

lishui-989526_960_720.jpg

3. Be Cautious
Pickpockets tend to do their actions during Songkran Festival since it is always filled with lots of tourists and people. If you are a tourist, consider for leaving your passport in the hotel room and bring a small amount of money, to avoid any threats from the criminals. Moreover, don’t use taxi or bus, it is better to use train due to the hectic traffic during Songkran festival.

4. Book Earlier
As a Thailand’s national event, booking a hotel during D-day must be a real nightmare since most of the hotels were fully booked during Songkran Festival. Therefore, book your hotel in advance is important if you want to party in the popular district in Thailand like the capital city of Bangkok, Chiang Mai, and others.

During the festival, you better prepare a rubber sandal because the street can be very slippery and dangerous. Don’t even think to barefooted during Songkran because sometimes you may find broken pieces of beer bottles.

water-fight-989540_960_720.jpg

5. Have Fun
Lastly, prepare your gear including water gun and waterproof casing on the day of the event. The water fight starts in 2nd and 3rd day, at that time you can bargain until the prices can go really cheap. After the festival, you can go shopping in the biggest shopping capital in Asia, with local and international brands.

The last thing that must be remembered is to pay your respect. Visit a temple to show your respect, after all this is a religious festival. Have a great time playing around during Songkran’s Festival!

A Glimpse of Portugal’s Azores Islands

The Pacific has Hawaii and the Atlantic the Azores. The Azores are a cluster of 9 volcanic islands located in near the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. The territory is under Portugal flag, but they are mostly autonomously governed. These paradise islands to some have been called heaven on earth- lush vegetation, stunning mountains, stunning marine life, golden beaches, and not overpopulated. One of the islands- Santa Maria- is inhabited by a mere 5,500 people. Many of Azores island names relate to nature: Pico for mountain island and Flores for flower island. The major sources of income derive from agriculture, dairy farming, ranching, fishing, and tourism. They are also known for their renounced whale watching, rock climbing, and diving.

azores-85688_960_720.jpg

Whale Watching
In the past, this cetacean safe heaven contributes much of its economy from whale hunting. Now the area and marine life are protected and cherished. Throughout the year, this island paradise is visited by common and bottlenose dolphins, and blue and humpback whales. It is a site were marine animals come for rest during their long migration. Tours of each island can be booked, but strict laws prohibit boats from disturbing the animals. Visitors can stop by at one of the many whale museums on land, displaying the culture’s drastic transformation from killing to protecting whale species.

Screen Shot 2017-01-05 at 11.13.28 PM.png

Hikers
The Azores also has a strong allure for hikers. The mountains here are some of the tallest in the world if you were to measure from the ocean floor. Mount. Pico is the most famous, ranging from 7,713 feet above sea level. It has over 60 trails that usually take up to 3 hours to hike. From those trails, two of the most popular sites are the São Miguel’s Setes Cidades twin lakes and Lagoa do Fogo which takes you to the shore. The island of Flores is a famous hiking site, well-known for the land’s extreme natural beauty.

timg.jpeg

Diving
With the frequent whale and dolphin sightings, this would be a great diving site, but the water holds many more surprises. The volcanos not only provide for nutrient water, but the lava creates winding caverns and rock formations for many species to thrive. Exploring below the surface, divers can find Devil Rays, Loggerhead Turtles, Sharks, Slipper Lobsters, Yellow Mouth Barracuda, Tuna and plenty more. Along with this, you can stumble upon one of the decaying shipwrecks. Most of the Islands provide for dive trips and with the visibility as high as 100 ft. and water temp around 70F, it is one experience that would not be easily forgotten.

Going on a Trip? Go Green!

In reality, travelling adds up to the world’s already increasing carbon footprint. Some say that NOT travelling is the best way to travel. But is that even possible? People will always need and want to travel somewhere but you can do your part by making sure your expedition is as green as possible. So here are 10 helpful tips that will make your travel greener.

bicycle-110970_960_720

Choose the mode of transportation wisely.
If you can ride a bike to go around the place or walk to your itinerary or to the nearest restaurant, then do it. It will do your body and the environment good. However, if travelling from point A to point B requires a vehicle ride, check if public transportation is available first.

4c23567d8edeb71525d751d10f895e28

Your choice of accommodation matters.
When planning a trip, check if eco-friendly properties are available in your destination. Also, when staying at a property, limit the use of the air conditioning system if possible and consider reusing your hotel towels if applicable. Make sure to unplug and turn off devices when leaving the room to save energy.

banhtrang1-1418286074689

Eat local.
Where you choose to dine has a veiled impact on the environment. Choose restaurants or food places that serve local produce and seafood. Carbon emission from transporting goods is reduced and small-scale fishing is less damaging compared to industrial fishing.

drinking-water-filter-singapore-1235578_960_720

Carry your own water bottle and reusable bag.
If we do not make a conscious effort to avoid single use plastic as much as possible, we will surely be swimming in a sea of plastic pretty soon. Have a drink ready with your reusable bottle and be ready to shop with your eco-friendly bag.

sun-791524_960_720.jpg

Use reef-friendly sunblock.
Many do not know, several sunblock brands use harmful chemicals. These chemicals are not only harmful to humans, but also to marine life. Help protect the seas and use only the good ones.

circus-828680_960_720

Ditch the animal shows or any attraction that involves wild animals being held captive. Dolphins, orcas, whales, elephants, tigers, and lions belong in the wild. If they are kept in cages, they lose their natural instincts and develop abnormal behaviour, causing them to grow weak and eventually die. Animals are important and should be respected.

swans-932696_960_720.jpg

Do not touch wildlife.
Being picked up, or fed needlessly can cause stress to wild animals. And remember, before you set out to roam around, that lotion or hand moisturiser you applied can be harmful to animals. Also, that flower or plant may be beautiful to look at, but resist the temptation to touch or remove it.

can-696583_960_720

Leave footprints, not trash.
Wherever your destination is–be it Singapore or Sao Paolo–respect the place and its people by not leaving your trash anywhere. Be conscious of the locale’s waste segregation and recycling policies as well.

photography-801891_960_720

Take pictures, not animals or plants.
Aside from photographs, there are other travel keepsakes available. When buying souvenirs, make sure to buy ones that are not made from animal body parts or endangered plants.

kid-674516_960_720

Volunteer.
Plan ahead and research if there is an upcoming event in your destination that needs volunteers. Check if there is a coastal cleanup or tree-planting activity that you and your friends can participate in. It not only helps mother earth, it can also be very fulfilling.

So there you go folks. We hope you can use these tips (and even add more ideas to it) to make your trip eco-friendly. It’s always a good idea to travel and care for mother earth at the same time, right?

6. Rice terraces and hill tribes, Sapa, Vietnam
As one of the most favourite spots for honeymooners, the rice terraces make you feel peaceful in the most ordinary way. Visit this top north area, indulge yourself at the laid-back Sapa town and let the ethnic group local here leads you to their wonders. I’m sure the saying “inspiration comes from the ordinary” is absolutely true.

7. Shibazakura, Hokkaido, Japan
Japan, I know, you know, the tiny island with splendid landscapes across the country.
