The 2014 Winter Olympics: What You Need to Know

October 15th, 2013
Want to see the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia? Here are 5 things you need to know: How to Get Tickets Before you can begin planning your trip, you need tickets. Cosport.com is the only official ticket reseller for US residents. If you buy tickets anywhere else, you are likely to get scammed.  On the Cosport website, you can purchase individual tickets or get a package that includes hotel booking and/or access to the Cosport Hospitality Center.

July 10th, 2011
Ecotourism may be the most common form of tourism is Ghana, but that doesn't mean you should overlook the capital city, Accra. The city is busy, and like so many cities in the developing world, it will initially seem dirty to Western eyes.

But don’t make your judgment in a day, or even a couple. Take your time, watch your step, and don’t be shy." Explore the city with an open mind, and you'll find excellent food, music, shopping, and arts galore. Read the Matador post for some great reco

June 5th, 2011
As if you needed another reason to get a Chinese visa, UNESCO has one more for you: This month's featured World Heritage Site is located in Beijing and dates back to the Ming Dynasty. For almost 500 years starting in 1420, Chinese emperors worshiped at the Temple of Heaven, a staggeringly beautiful complex of temples and altars built according to Taoist principles. Here, the emperors performed prayers and ceremonies to ensure bountiful harvests and favorable weather for growing crops. UNESCO calls it "a masterpiece of architecture and landscape design which simply and graphically illustrates a cosmogony of great importance for the evolution of one of the world’s great civilizations." The Temple of Heaven stopped being used as such in 1911, when the ceremonies were forbidden by the

Belarus Visa Requirements for Tourists

April 8th, 2011
Though the Soviet Union officially broke up in 1991, in many ways Belarus never left. The country's economy is still primarily owned by the state, and while Belarus is technically a republic, the country has a reputation of being a place where political dissent is an activity that's neither encouraged nor good for one's health. For all that, Belarus' attractions beckon both city people and nature lovers alike. The cities thrive with excellent nightlife, and the natural parks are wild and impressive. Plus, there's the Belarusian people themselves. Lonely Planet says that "while travelers will always be subject to curiosity, they'll invariably also be on the receiving end of extremely warm hospitality" while in Belarus. Before you can experience that hospitality for yourself, however
