Get a Vietnamese Visa to Walk Along the Great Wall of Vietnam

January 31st, 2011
Archaeologists working in Vietnam just announced the discovery of what is being called "the Great Wall of Vietnam," a 79-mile wall that is up to 13 feet high in some places. The discovery is the work of Dr. Andrew Hardy of the French School of Asian Studies. Dr. Hardy's quest began when he found a reference to the wall in a Nguyen Dynasty court document. The ensuing exploration and excavation took 4 years, but revealed what Vietnamese history Professor Phan Huy Lê told CNN is "the longest monument in Southeast Asia." As it stands now, the Vietnamese government tries to discourage outsiders from traveling to Quang Ngai, the province in which the wall is located. During the Vietnam War, the area was the site of the tragic My Lai massacre. However, that will most likely change soon. The mo

Get a Tajikistan Visa to Visit the Ancient Ruins of Sarazm

January 30th, 2011
Tajikistan is one of those countries that's often overlooked by American travelers, and with some good reasons. It's a relatively undeveloped country, and tourist facilities are often non-existent. Still, if you don't mind roughing it, a trip to Tajikistan can be an amazing experience. The scenery - golden steppes, towering mountains and isolated lakes - is simply breathtaking. Visiting this week's featured UNESCO World Heritage Site gives you a chance to take in the scenery and get a close look at the ruins of one of the country's oldest settlements. The city of Sarazm dates back to the 4th millennium BC, which makes it older than the Egyptian pyramids. It was abandoned in 2000 BC, but came to life again as a mining town about 500 years later. Many of the tools and structures une

Indonesian Visa Requirements to Help Build An Eco-tourism Village

January 29th, 2011
Habitat for Humanity has a new project in Indonesia: turning the small village of Soran into an eco-tourism community.  (h/t Jaunted) The village is located near the Prambanan Temple and the volcano of Mt. Merapi, so once the community is complete it will provide environmentally conscious travelers with an excellent base for exploring the area. More importantly, it will also provided upgraded housing for the people of Soran, as well as an opportunity to make additional income.

January 28th, 2011
Hyderabad, India is the country's 6th largest city. Also known as the "City of Pearls," it is a hub of the India's film and IT industries. Doesn't sound like the best spot for a vacation, does it?

Get an Armenian Visa for a Wine Tour in the Home of the World’s Oldest Winery

January 27th, 2011
According to the BBC, the world's oldest winery was recently discovered in a cave in Armenia. The primitive winery consists of a shallow basin used as a wine press, along with a deep stone vat for fermentation. Dried grape vines and the remains of pressed grapes were also found on site, leaving little doubt as to the purpose of the basin and the vat. The wine press is 6,000 years old.  Morbidly enough, it was located in the center of a graveyard. Archaeologists believe that the wine it produced was used in funeral ceremonies. When you think of wine today,  famous wine-producing countries like France, Italy, Chile and Australia come to mind. But Armenia also has an ancient tradition of viticulture, typically producing sweet red wines. With this in mind, several travel companies offer
