In the framework of the International Year on Sustainable Tourism for Development, 2017, the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) is launching a consumer-oriented campaign aimed at raising awareness of the value and contribution that sustainable tourism can make towards development. The ‘Travel.Enjoy.Respect’ campaign wants to engage tourists in making the sector a catalyst for positive change.
The main message of the campaign is summarized by the UNWTO Secretary-General, Taleb Rifai: “Whenever you travel, wherever you travel, remember to: respect nature, respect culture, and respect your host. You can be the change you want to see in the world. You can be an ambassador for a better future. TRAVEL, ENJOY AND RESPECT.”

It is not possible for me to carry my bulky DSLR every time. And in many tricky situations, I completely rely upon my mobile – Mi4, which has become a reliable travel tool for me over a period of many years. I had clicked various pictures of beautiful spots of Colombo from moving buses. So the snaps may fall short on picture quality, but I am confident the images will still catch your attention.
Thank You 🙂

Designed by Frederick William Stevens, it was built in 1887 in the Bori Bunder area of Mumbai.
Hardly, you would come across a person who does not enjoy sunrise or sunset in this world.
I was quite amused by the beauty of Labuan Bajo port, which is located at the western end of Flores in the Nusa Tenggara region of east Indonesia.
While enjoying a memorable sunset at Paradise bar, I managed to capture a lot of images of this quaint port, which is gateway to the world famous Komodo National Park. You can clearly see here how nature can be awe-inspiring. Of late, this place has become quite popular among tourists because of its rare pink beaches and Komodo National Park.
