Get a Chinese Visa to See the Great Wall

November 29th, 2009
The Great Wall of China is one of China's most famous landmarks. Built to protect China from invasion by neighboring peoples, the wall was constructed over many centuries, starting in 5 BC and ending in the 16 century AD. However, most of what is there now was constructed in the 16th century, during China's Ming Dynasty. According to Wikipedia, the entire wall, including natural fortifications and trenches, stretches 5,500.3 miles! The Great Wall is truly an ambitious feat of construction, so grand that people have long assumed that it must be visible from space.  However, as it turns out, space travel makes even the Great Wall seem insignificant. If it can be seen from space at all, it can only be seen at low orbits by people who know exactly where to look. You definitely would not b

To Enjoy Brazil’s Famous Beaches, You Will Need a Brazilian Visa

November 28th, 2009
When you think of Brazil, what comes to mind? For most people, the answer is exciting festivals like Carnivale, lush tropical rainforests, and of course, the world-famous beaches. Probably the most famous of these is Copacabana, immortalized in the Grammy-winning hit song by Barry Manilow.  Despite the predictable crowds of locals and tourists, Copacabana's gorgeous white sands are still well worth a visit. Copacabana also has many activities available, day and night, including futevolei, also known as foot volleyball. For a quieter experience and some spectacular swimming, check out Ipanema, another gorgeous white sand beach near Rio de Janeiro.  Moving away from Rio de Janeiro and towards Sao Paulo, the sand is tinted a beautiful shade of gold on the beaches of Costa Verde. Even bet

Getting a Thai Visa to Ride Elephants in Mae Hong Son Province

November 27th, 2009
Mae Hong Son Province is a province in the northwest of Thailand. Asian elephants have always lived in these forests, and the local people have been training elephants here for centuries. In fact, the name of the province is derived from that of an old settlement called Ban Mae Rong Son, or Village of the Elephant Training Camp. Today, Mae Hong Son Province is a land of remote forests, many of which have never been cut. Tourists come for the beautiful scenery and to experience the unique traditional cultures of the local hill tribes. Since it is so remote, Mae Hong Son province is especially suited to trekking, mountain biking, rafting and other outdoor sports.  Given the region's history, it's not surprising that elephant trekking is also a possible activity. Several local elephant

Is Your Travel Visa Horror Story Good Enough to Win a Prize?

November 24th, 2009
Most travel horror stories are small potatoes...missing a plane, getting stuck next to a drunk guy who reeks of vomit on the subway...not fun, but not epic, either. However, when it comes to travel visa horror stories, the potential for a truly awful trip increases exponentially. With the appropriate visa, you might not be allowed on your plane. If by some chance you are allowed on your plane, when you arrive at your destination, countries that don't allow you to apply for a visa on arrival will more than likely put you on the next plane back, at your own expense. You could also end up stranded in a third country, like the couple that tried to go on honeymoon in St. Petersburg but didn't have Russian visas.  One thing is certain: without the appropriate travel visa, the outlook for

Adventure Travel In Uzbekistan: How to Get an Uzbekistan Visa

November 22nd, 2009
If your idea of a great vacation is relaxing somewhere comfortable, doing as little as possible, then Uzbekistan is probably not for you. However, if you enjoy adventure travel packed with outdoor activities, Uzbekistan is a wonderful option that is often overlooked. Uzbekistan's outdoor attractions include skiing, which is a popular activity in the Chimgan-Beldersay region near the city of Tashkent; mountaineering, rock-climbing and hiking. Horseback riding and hang gliding are also popular, especially on Greater Chimgan mountain in Ugam-Chatkal National Park. Due to its location on the ancient Great Silk Road, Uzbekistan also has many stunning archaeological and architectural sights.  For example, the city of Samarkand is a UNESCO World Heritage site due to its ancient history and
