Phu Quoc is nice except that the locals throw their trash in the ocean.  The island is well developed and you can now explore caves.  You will not see a sea turtle while snorkeling or diving because the locals eat them.


A good unbiased resource for phu quoc is http://www.phuquocislandguide.com and the wiki sites

Driving over the  lake's beautiful thick ice, and visiting the incredible ice formations around Olkhon island, with a Baikal Explorer guide was simply amazing. I have been to 105 countries, and would rate this experience as being up there with seeing the pyramids in Egypt, Mayon Volcano in the Philippines, Machu Picchu in Peru and Mount Everest in Tibet.


The log cabin we stayed in was of special interest to me, especially the amazing brick, wood stove that kept the place toasty warm. Also, the meals were substantial and superb, even for me, a vegetarian. Siberia in winter... go for it!

Mirando el mar.


Contemplando

el mar cerca

del acantilado

escucho una

voz viviente

y ligera como

el canto del

sol cuando

viene la aurora.

Actually, smoking in Bulgaria is totally banned. There are no rooms in restaurants, no clubs, bars or casinos which allow smoking.

Félicitations au Massif de Charlevoix! C'est vraiment une expérience époustouflante avec la vue sur le magnifique Fleuve St-Laurent!

Le Massif de Charlevoix est l'une des très rares stations de ski -- et possiblement la seule -- qui peut se targuer d'offrir une véritable expérience de "ski on sea".  Même le Lac Tahoe n'offre pas cette même expérience.
