In my last post, I briefly spoke about New Zealand, If you haven't read it yet then please do so before going ahead with this article. In this post, I will be elaborating about some interesting facts about the great Island nation New Zealand. 

People from New Zealand are referred as Kiwi but unlike many demographic labels, it's usage isn't consider offensive but in fact, it is seen as an endearment or a sense of pride. The national animal of New Zealand is Kiwi from which their nickname has been derived. The culture of the Kiwis has been influenced by Maori culture which by the way, makes only 15% of New Zealand’s population.

Kiwis are very friendly people and love meeting new people from different cultures in fact New Zealanders are considered the most polite people in the world. New Zealanders are the kind of people who don't like bargaining nor they expect a tips except in elite restaurant so keep this in mind perhaps this travel info might come in handy during your visit.

A trip to New Zealand is never finished if you haven't had their cuisine. Their cuisine could be described with the term Pacific rim because their cuisine inspiration came from European, Asian and Polynesian cuisines. A blend of these produces some mouth-watering range of foods.

New Zealand is a land of festivals and hosts many varieties of them every year. On the top of my mind, I can recall few amazing festivals which I would love to share it here.

The World of Wearable Art: It is held every year in the month of September. The festival showcase a wide variety of unique garments made from a designer from all over the world. If you are a fashion fanatic then this is the place you want to be.

The Wine and Food Festival: This festival is one of my favourites and I say this because I am a foodie to the core. This festival is hosted every year in summer months which are in terms of New Zealand are December to March. It is host to one of the finest Wine and mouthwatering food.

The Wild food Festival: This festival is one of the most unique festivals New Zealand has to offer. The food offered by this festival are some which you might not see in any restaurant’s menu, if you plan to witness this festival then you should plan your visit in the month of March.

Speight's coast to coast:  A race as long as 240 km in length, it give an opportunity to explore the landscape of New Zealand and this is the race every athlete dreams to run.

Amazing Dubai

Amazing Dubai 

Amazing Dubai is a part of The United Arab Emirates and it a vacation hotspot for any type of traveller.  Dubai was built on a desert and today it is the part of an elite club of most modern cities in the world.  

Dubai is famous for Luxury shopping, Ultra-modern architecture and a die for Nightlife, having said that Dubai has very well preserved its rich cultural beauty. Dubai has been the talk of the town because of having built the world’s tallest building and the job has been done so well that the building “Burj Khalifa” is just not the tallest but one of the most beautiful building to admire once you have a glance at it. 
I have alway been fascinated about Dubai because of the simplicity it has to offer but yet so modern. Dubai is the only place where you will find a seven-star hotel Burj Al Arab, An artificial archipelago of various small Island constructed in the shape of the world map.

A person planning to travel to Dubai need not worry about anything, Dubai has a …

Sikkim The state of Himalaya

Sikkim is a delight to travel. An Indian State surrounded by the great Himalayan mountains. The scenic beauty is heavenly. Recently I had an opportunity to travel to Gangtok, the capital city of Sikkim. The city is built in the heart of the Mountain ranges so don’t be afraid to climb and to decent a lot during the day, it is like hiking whenever you step out of the hotel.

Gangtok is a place where you can go and enjoy the weather, meditate and inhale all the scenic beauty or if you love some action then there is a lot of adventure sports you can check out but if you plan to shop then probably it is not the best destination. There is only one road which has been converted into a walking plaza, it is called as mall road, where you will find many restaurant and shops of different kinds ranging from international brands to local merchandise shops. 
Reaching Gangtok is a 4 hrs drive from Darjeeling or 4 hrs drive from the nearest airport which is situated at Bagdogra, but rest assure that you…
