Get a Bolivian Visa to See Lake Titicaca

October 18th, 2009
Lake Titicaca is the largest lake in South America, as well as one of the region's prime tourist attractions. The lake, located on the border between Peru and Bolivia,  has several unique characteristics that make it worth visiting. First, it is located high in the Andes Mountains, 12,500 ft above sea level.  The blue of the lake contrasted with the white, snow-capped peaks of the mountains makes for stunning scenery indeed! Second, the lake and the surrounding areas are home to native people with a unique and interesting culture. For example, some natives live on the lake on artificial islands made of reeds, called uros. The uros  must be rebuilt constantly with fresh reeds to replace the reeds on the bottom as they decompose into the lake. On the island on Amanti, you can stay f

Want to take a walk  on the wild side?  Nigeria's Yankari National Park is your chance to see in person what most people only ever see in zoos or on the Discovery Channel- iconic African wildlife like lions, elephants, monkeys, antelope, hartebeest, African buffalo and hippopotamuses.

Getting an Indian Visa To See The Taj Mahal

October 6th, 2009
The Taj Mahal is one of India's most famous tourist attractions, and with good reason.  It rivals the Egyptian pyramids for the title of the largest and most elaborate tomb ever built! The story of the Taj Mahal is also a love story. The building was built by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan for his third and favorite wife, Mumtaz Mahal.  According to Wikipedia, the Emperor renamed his wife "Mumtaz Mahal" after their marriage-the name means "jewel of the palace." When she died giving birth to their 14th child, the emperor was inconsolable, and ordered the Taj Mahal built as a tomb.  The immense white marble building with its familiar onion-shaped dome is unforgettable, and its grandeur assures that the love story of Shah Jahan and Mumtaz Mahal lives on even today. If you want to v


Get a Cambodian Visa To Experience the Magic of Angkor Wat

September 25th, 2009
One of the main tourist attractions in Cambodia is the ancient temple of Angkor Wat. The temple, built in the 1100's by the Khmer king Suryavarman II, is an incredible work of architecture that rivals and even surpasses other, more well-known buildings. Made out of stone, the temple towers over the surrounding landscape. It is richly decorated, both inside and out, with statues and bas-relief sculptures. Angkor Wat was built as a Hindi temple, dedicated to the god Vishnu. Then, later, in the 13th century, the new King Srindravarman changed the state religion of Cambodia from Hinduism to Buddhism and converted Angkor Wat into a Buddhist shrine.  However,  you don't have to be Hindu or Buddhist to appreciate the temple's monumental beauty and grandeur. Over the past 20 years, restora
