Recently, I was reading an article on how photographers and Instagrammers are ruining Panjim’s famous Fontainhas, ignoring locals’ requests not to disturb them. This reminded me of my own trip to Panjim, where I saw hundreds of photographers armed with their mobiles and DSLRs creating a nuisance for local residents in the beautiful Fontainhas area. In our fun moment, we conveniently ignore that our actions might go against the culture and way of life of the locals. What kind of pleasure do people get by ignoring local people’s requests? Even a “no photography” request sign fails to deter the tourists. I myself have witnessed it. We should always respect the local people and their culture while on our trips.
Before embarking on an ambitious trip to Laos, I stayed near Suvarnabhumi Airport, Bangkok for a day. Surrounded by trees and lush greenery, this place was quite enticing and beautiful. I could not stop myself from capturing several photos from various angles. I was excited to see a wide variety of flowers near my hotel, but failed to identify many of them and hence I took their pictures. Could you help me identify these beautiful flowers ?

Malaysia’s Langkawi is replete with splendid spots. One of them is Eagle Square, which is also known as Dataran Lang. It is a man-made structure, which is the symbol of Langkawi. The massive sculpture of an eagle poised to take flight is definitely eye-catching and absolutely stunning. The 12 meter tall sculpture at Eagle Square attracts hundreds of tourists everyday, thanks to its amazing design. One of the iconic structures of Langkawi, the statue is surrounded by waters and bridges that provide mesmerizing views to tourists. The massive eagle sculpture greets everyone who comes to Kuah by ferry. The afternoon here could be too hot. So it is advisable to visit the place either in the morning or evening. As I was staying in Tubotel hostel, I rented a taxi and reached the place along with my friend. After spending 40 minutes there, I returned to my hostel. It is a beautiful place, which I recommend you to visit.
The Kingdom of Bhutan will be reopening its borders to tourists from September 23, 2022. But it will do so with a renewed focus on the sustainability of the sector, the Tourism Council Of Bhutan said in a press release.
The tourism sector will be undergoing a revamp, which will focus on three key areas. They are infrastructure and services, the travel experiences of tourists, and the sector’s environmental impact.
“COVID-19 has allowed us to reset – to rethink how the sector can be best structured and operated, so that it not only benefits Bhutan economically, but socially as well, while keeping carbon footprints low. In the long run, our goal is to create high-value experiences for visitors, and well-paying and professional jobs for our citizens,” said Dr. Tandi Dorji, Foreign Minister of Bhutan and Chairperson of the Tourism Council of Bhutan.
Lots of people suggested me to visit Panjim’s Joseph Bar. It was early morning and the staff was not interested in me. They might have figured out this guy won’t spend much here. And I too realized this is not my kind of place. So I ordered a beer, finished it quickly and left the place after clicking few images. The interior part of the bar was very impressive. Soon I reached a hole-in-the-mole bar (since 1976). Ordered a beer and started conversation with the owner of the bar. When I asked him why people recommended Joseph Bar ? He just smiled. He told me It is crazy. All most all the tourists spend money there. Don’t we have a right to survive, he asked me ? My answer was – of course, yes, that’s why I am here. Ordered another beer with some snack. After spending around one hour I left for my room.
The following images prove that nature can be spectacular in any part of the world. As I always believe, if you explore new places, you will encounter with such unexpected beauty.
