What the Hell is the Sucre General Cemetery? | Bolivia

You might also like 51 Weird + Fun Things to do in Bolivia You can learn a lot about a culture by observing the way that they bury their dead. Seek out the headstone of late rockstars in Père Lachaise or observe the burial rituals at Varanasi. If you don’t find the experience too grim, it can be fascinating to see the many ways that people say goodbye. Sucre General Cemetery kept popping up alongside the bizarre Dinosaur Dancefloor as one of the best things to do in Sucre. The cemetery in Sucre doesn’t look much like other cemeteries. While it has its share of mausoleums and headstones, the majority of the graves are narrow slots in the wall. Arranged into barracks — often 7 plots high — the grave sites look kind of like very tiny, high-efficiency apartments. Lots and lots of them. But the Sucre General Cemetery is far from gloomy. Replacing headstones are gaudily decorated […]

5 Of The Best Dressed Destinations To Get Your Freak On This Halloween

by Donna @ Haute Culture Textile Tours

Halloween or All Hallows Eve is by far our favorite annual celebration. Traditionally a Pagan turned Christian holiday for remembering the dead, today Halloween is a fully fledged festival treading the fine line between fun and fearsome. It’s a wonderful holiday that encourages people to embrace creativity, let go of your inhibitions and celebrate inner fears. Here’s Haute Culture’s top five global Halloween parties on our blood filled bucket list.  1. GREENWICH VILLAGE HALLOWEEN PARADE, NEW YORK CITY, USA The NYC Halloween parade is the biggest in the world. Sexuality, politics and pop culture infuse through many of the costume designs and all combine to create a hedonistic spectacle of epic proportions. This year, 60,000 participants are expected to attend. The 2016 parade included a papier mache Trump, whilst the 2001 parade was themed ‘Phoenix Rising’. A phoenix puppet led the parade to represent the strength of New Yorkers in the wake of 9/11. A troupe of dancing rod-puppet skeletons always lead the way, dancing through the streets of the city for one day of the year, celebrating the life and soul of NYC.  31st October 2017 http://halloween-nyc.com/ 2. DIA DE MUERTOS, MEXICO CITY, MEXICO. Whilst The Day of the Dead is […]

Cu Chi Tunnels & Saigon City Tour

by Mai Trang @ Saigon and Around – Discovery Indochina Tour Vietnam Cambodia Laos and Myanmar

Cu Chi is about 40 km northwest of Ho Chi Minh City in Southern Vietnam. The Cu Chi Tunnels are an elaborate underground community made up of 250 km of tunnels and chambers below the city.

The tunnels were dug with simple tools and bare hands during the French occupation in the 1940s, and further expanded during the Vietnam War in the 1960s to provide refuge and a defensive advantage over the American soldiers. Despite all the bombings in their town, the Cu Chi people were able to continue their lives beneath the soil, where they slept, ate, planned attacks, healed their sick, and taught their young. Some even wed and gave birth underground, but over 10,000 lost their lives here.

And different from romantic Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City (known as Saigon) has its own charm. Observe the dynamic life in the vibrant place which was once considered “Pearl of the Far East”, join in a unique mix of culture from many regions along Vietnam, all ensure you new interesting experiences.

Only Happy When It Rains (ft. Florence) | Italy

by Taylor Record @ Travel Outlandish

When it rains in Florence, Botticelli Angel umbrellas create an impenetrable fortress between human and sky. Lines to enter the Il Duomo di Firenze are almost as impressive as the cathedral itself, and you can forget about seeing The Birth of Venus without an iPad hovering in the foreground. Happy couples get caricature sketches while those that argued over getting lost all day slug back carafes of Sangiovese wine and binge eat pizza instead. It’s no secret there’s a dense collection of Renaissance art and architecture in Florence, and apparently, people are into it.  Each year, the UNESCO World Heritage city (population 370,000) welcomes 16 million tourists, and you can really, really feel it. It’s fair to say that pretty little Florence has a tourist problem. If you imagine Florence to be like a quaint photo, you might not like the city much at all. But if you don’t mind getting off the main streets and watching the crowds from afar, you’ll find garish window displays at high-fashion retailers, quirky cocktail bars, and local markets selling plenty of divine Italian food that isn’t even pasta. Want to get beyond the top 10 and see the secrets of Florence? Here’s some street photography […]

It was more about practicality than anything else. If she doesn't want to cycle at all, I'd still use tuktuks. Get a good guidebook and enjoy the temples without the crowds. You can negotiate a price with the driver upfront.

When we were there, there were stories of thieves on motorbikes taking bags from people in tuktuks, so keep your valuables down by your feet.

1000s of La Catrina Parade Through The Streets of Mexico For Día de Muertos 2017

by Donna @ Haute Culture Textile Tours

Over 1000 costume lovers paraded through Morelia in Mexico yesterday dressed as the cultural icon of death, La Calavera Catrina.  Held on the first day of Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead), families, friends and foreigners flooded the city’s streets for the second year running to see the spectacular congregation of elegant skeletons march towards the central Cathedral. “Death is democratic, because in the end, the mother, the brunette, the rich or the poor, all the people end up being skulls” – José Guadalupe Posada La Calavera Catrina was an illustration created by the Mexican political print maker Jose Guadalupe Posada (1852–1913). Published in local papers the early 1910’s at the start of the Mexican Revolution, the elegant looking skeleton was designed to mock Mexico’s Euro-centric elite, who were believed to be abandoning their indigenous heritage by starting to emulate the fashions and mannerisms of Europeans from Paris and London. Today La Catrina has been fully absorbed into Mexico’s annual festival of the dead and can be seen on everything from t-shirts to porcelain dolls, reminding everyone that no matter how beautiful we are on the outside, we will all end up looking the same in the grave. The costume […]

Tay Ninh & Cu Chi Tunnels

by Mai Trang @ Saigon and Around – Discovery Indochina Tour Vietnam Cambodia Laos and Myanmar

Cu Chi is about 40 km northwest of Ho Chi Minh City in Southern Vietnam. The Cu Chi Tunnels are an elaborate underground community made up of 250 km of tunnels and chambers below the city. The tunnels were dug with simple tools and bare hands during the French occupation in the 1940s, and further expanded during the Vietnam War in the 1960s to provide refuge and a defensive advantage over the American soldiers. Despite all the bombings in their town, the Cu Chi people were able to continue their lives beneath the soil, where they slept, ate, planned attacks, healed their sick, and taught their young.

Tay Ninh province, northwest of HCMC, is bordered by Cambodia on three sides. The area’s dominant geographic feature is Nui Ba Den (Black Lady Mountain), which towers above the surrounding plains. Tay Ninh province’s eastern border is formed by the Saigon River. The Vam Co River flows from Cambodia through the western part of the province.

What to eat in Buenos Aires

by Craig Martin @ Indie Travel Podcast

There's plenty of deliciousness to be found in Buenos Aires, and the city is finally shaking off its vege-unfriendly status. There's little of that here though. If "when in Rome, do as the Romans do" applies, then "When in Buenos Aires, eat these tasty finds" will certainly work too.

Cu Chi Tunnels

by Mai Trang @ Saigon and Around – Discovery Indochina Tour Vietnam Cambodia Laos and Myanmar

Cu Chi is about 40 km northwest of Ho Chi Minh City in Southern Vietnam. The Cu Chi Tunnels are an elaborate underground community made up of 250 km of tunnels and chambers below the city.

The tunnels were dug with simple tools and bare hands during the French occupation in the 1940s, and further expanded during the Vietnam War in the 1960s to provide refuge and a defensive advantage over the American soldiers. Despite all the bombings in their town, the Cu Chi people were able to continue their lives beneath the soil, where they slept, ate, planned attacks, healed their sick, and taught their young. Some even wed and gave birth underground, but over 10,000 lost their lives here.

The Handsome Hanbok & Where to Buy One in Seoul

by Donna @ Haute Culture Textile Tours

The Hanbok is the traditional dress of Korea, worn by men and women, rich and poor, across the north and the south for over 1600 years. Throughout this time, its general design was similar to the sloping eaves of the Korean traditional house – the hanok – with a soft division of lines and angles. Throughout the centuries, it’s obviously maintained its popularity for good reason. It’s a garment of pure beauty, synonymous with Korean aesthetics and tradition. Thoroughly theatrical and distinct, it’s hard to not admire the strong visual structure of the hanging sleeves, bulging full-length skirt, floral detailing and pretty bows. Women’s Hanboks are comprised of two elements: the jeogori (cropped blouse) and the chima (skirt). It’s said that the wide curved arms of the jeogori represent the warmth of the embrace of the Korean people, and the wide flowing chima symbolises space and freedom. A sad representation, given the borders that now divide the Korean people. Under neath the dress is special type of (adorable) Hanbok underwear and a petticoat which adds the fullness to the silhouette. The whole look is completed with accessories such as a Norigae (hanging good luck charm) and hair accessories. The loose cut of the style […]

Why You Should Learn German in the City | Germany

by Taylor Record @ Travel Outlandish

This post is in partnership with the Speakeasy Berlin. I received complimentary lessons in exchange for an honest review, but all opinions are my own. German is tough to learn. After one month of living in Berlin, I was still fumbling through the most basic interactions. I spent time with more international people than Germans, and the Germans I did know switched to flawless English the minute they saw me sweat. My accent was complete scheiße. Without grammar, I was nervous to speak. I’d managed to learn a few phrases on accident, but if I wasn’t ordering beer or catching a train, my German was next to useless. Even still, it seems learning German in Berlin is going to be a lot harder than learning Spanish in Ecuador. I realized if I ever hoped to tackle this feisty, lawless, not-so-romantic language, I was going to need German classes in Berlin, and lots of them. Thinking about learning German in Berlin? Here’s everything you need to know about learning German with Speakeasy Berlin. Where to Learn German Abroad Are you moving to Germany to learn German OR learning German because you moved to Germany? If your focus is on studying German, you should make […]

Saigon City Tour

by Mai Trang @ Saigon and Around – Discovery Indochina Tour Vietnam Cambodia Laos and Myanmar

Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) is Vietnam at its most dizzying: a high-octane city of commerce and culture that has driven the whole country forward with its pulsating energy. A chaotic whirl, the city breathes life and vitality into all who settle here – visitors cannot help but be hauled along for the ride.

From the finest of hotels to the cheapest of guesthouses, the classiest of restaurants to the tastiest of street stalls, the choicest of boutiques to the scrum of the markets, HCMC is a city of contrasts. Wander through timeless alleys to incense-infused temples before catching up with the present in designer malls beneath sleek skyscrapers. The ghosts of the past live on in buildings that one generation ago witnessed a city in turmoil, but the real beauty of (erstwhile) Saigon’s urban collage is the the seamless blending of these two worlds into one thrilling, seething mass, while a host of new and exhilarating tours get you way off-the-beaten track.

14 Reasons Vietnam Is The Best Destination For Textiles Right Now

by Donna @ Haute Culture Textile Tours

Call me biased, but I say with conviction that Vietnam is the most unique and authentic country in South-East Asia. It has 54 distinct ethnic groups, many with their own language, lifestyle and long traditions that have been passed down through the generations. Between the tribal traditions, natural beauty of the landscape, incredible food and hospitable hosts, Vietnam is a must visit country worthy of anyones travel list.  However. Vietnam is rapidly changing, and the changes affect all of it’s diverse people. Increased access to technology, media and mass produced goods are making the world a smaller, more generic place. In Vietnam, this is as evident amongst the younger generations of indigenous ethnic groups whom are now being exposed to a new way of life and opportunities previously unknown to their elders. Naturally, these young people are affected by what they see happening across the country, and they strive to fit in to a culture that was never their own in order to earn their place in the new world encroaching on them. As a result, traditional visual identities through dress are rapidly beginning to evolve, or worse, becoming extinct. This makes Vietnam one of the best destinations for anyone […]

51 Unique + Fun Things to do in Chile | Chile

by Taylor Record @ Travel Outlandish

If you’re traveling down the Gringo Trail, Chile might feel unexpectedly familiar. There are no ramshackle busses or alpacas wandering the streets. Instead, there are arbitrary laws, expensive cups of coffee, and high speed internet connections. In some weird way, you might miss the chaos. I wondered whether I was making a mistake by blowing the rest of my travel budget on a place that looked so much like home (and cost as much, too). But there’s something special about Chile. After I really got to know it, Chile became one of my favorite countries. Perhaps it was because I finally started to speak Spanish or was traveling on my own for the first time in years, or perhaps it’s just because Chile is diverse,  dynamic, and completely fascinating. Want to experience Chile beneath the surface? I bet you’ll dig it to. From geodesic domes where you can spend the night to the otherworldly nature of Patagonia, here’s are some of the weird, wild, and totally fun things to do in Chile. Very Chilean Experiences 1. Start up north for the gentle surf & sun in Arica (Arica y Parinacota) 2. Head into Valle de Elqui for a pisco tasting tour by bicycle (Coquimbo) […]

BigJohn on "Vietnam and Cambodia tours.."

by BigJohn @ Singletrack Forum » Topic: Vietnam and Cambodia tours..

We went in January.

Flew Heathrow to Hanoi, non-stop with Vietnam Airways on a 787. Very comfortable.

Booked a trip round Halong Bay with Ethnic Travel which is a brilliant company who take you to places off the tourist trail.

Then flew down to Hue, Motorbike to Hoi An, Got the Sleeper Train to Mui Ne for some windsurfing, Train to Saigon and another trip with Ethnic Travel around Mekong Delta.

Flew back on 787 from Saigon. (Locally it's known as both Ho Chi Minh and Saigon, equally)

Magnificent trip. January is too cold for the mountains though so next time (and there will be a next time) we'll go a bit later and up in the mountains. But January is a great time to go. We cycled and kayaked on the Ethnic Travel trips and swam each day in Halong Bay. We went just before Tet (Chinese new year) and the flowers being grown in the Delta, and being shipped to Saigon on the river were magnificent.

Ethnic Travel really impressed us. They took us to places where tourists rarely go. Homestays, floating villages etc. We went on a little boat right in the middle of the floating market - mooring up against barges selling coffee and noodles for breakfast at 6 in the morning and passing bowls across to market traders who in turn were tied up to our boat before we whizzed off to another barge. And looking at the boats full of "proper tourists" all packaged up in life jackets and watching from a safe distance!

When we were cycling around the Delta I got very disoriented and asked our guide what would happen if we got separated. There was just me, Mrs BigJohn and "Lucy" our guide. She said just to stop, and she would ask the locals if they had seen the foreigners. They don't see many.

Hacer Dedo: Hitchhiking in Patagonia | Argentina

by Taylor Record @ Travel Outlandish

After trekking the O Circuit in Torres del Paine, I found it almost impossible to leave Puerto Natales. The town itself was uninspiring but I made a tight group of friends on the trail. We hiked together, so it was only right that we drank too many celebratory beers together too. But as it happens when traveling, we had to move on, one by one. I planned to take the bus eventually, but only when my feet stopped hurting, when I felt ready to go, when everyone else left. In truth, it had been days and I hadn’t even bothered with the walk to the bus station. When my hostel roommate suggested hitchhiking to Argentina, and asked me to come along, I had no excuse for a “no”. Thinking about hitchhiking in Argentina? Hitchhiking from Puerto Natales to El Calafaté was one of my weird highlights of South America. You’ll find specific details on hitchhiking Argentina at the end of this post!

How to get to Ihwa Mural Village in Seoul

by Donna @ Haute Culture Textile Tours

Just a ten minutes uphill walk along Seoul city wall near Daehakno district  sits the Ihwa Mural Village. Climbing away from the city, the air clears, the noise stills and suddenly as you reach the very top of Mount Naksan you find a village dedicated to something quite unexpected; street art. Eleven years ago, Ihwa ‘moon village’ (so called because of it’s fantastic hill-side views of the moon) had been destined for destruction, due to it being rather run down and slum-like. Historically, moon villages were homes to the working class, who couldn’t afford housing down in the flatter, central parts of the city. The village was saved in 2006 by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, who decided to transform the village as part of their ‘Art in the City’ initiative. Artists selected by the committee were commissioned to design 64 installations under the theme of ‘Mix, Connect and Get Together’. Over the course of six months, 70 painters (including local volunteers, art college students and visiting artists) covered the village from schools to homes, underpasses to stairways, walls, fences and rooftops with beautiful and diverse murals. After having become something of a tourist attraction the once slum-like […]

Fantastic London Markets + Where to Find Them | UK

by Taylor Record @ Travel Outlandish

Can we all just agree that shopping malls are terrible? Perhaps the 14-story monster malls in Bangkok are worth a wander, but the American style mall might as well be an inferno-less hell. All a person really needs to suffer is flickering lights, teenage hordes, and the familiar fragrance of Abercrombie cologne. Fortunate for the mall haters, merchants have started going backwards to a more traditional style of selling. In London, there are countless artisans, creatives, and food vendors that have ditched their commercial space in favor of a tiny popup stall. London markets are some of the loveliest places to explore in London. Whether you’re going for a lookie loo or a full on shopping spree, here are some of the London farmers, flower, flea, + food markets you won’t want to miss. The Very Best of the London Markets Camden Lock Market Formerly a timber yard for ship builders, the stalls and storefronts tucked away in Camden makeup Camden Lock Market. The items for sale range in quality from vintage finds to mass produced crap, but it’s the looking around part that is fun.

aldo56 on "Vietnam and Cambodia tours.."

by aldo56 @ Singletrack Forum » Topic: Vietnam and Cambodia tours..

I've not been to Cambodia but here are my Vietnam tips:

I'd recommend going to Cat Ba Island (instead of Ha Long)and spending a few days on a junk with these guys:

http://www.asiaoutdoors.com.vn

The scenery is very similar to Ha Long but much quieter. We climbed and kayaked during the day and spent the night of the junk with them and it was bloody brilliant. Bonus if your into climbing at all as you can do some DWS. The crew on the ship were locals and came swimming with us in the phosphorescent plancton after a few too many rice wines haha.

War based stuff: Doing the tunnels from HCMC was pretty cool, I really enjoyed that; our guide really opened my eyes to the Vietnamese perspective on the war (something that was confirmed by the recent BBC documentary). Also the War Museum in HCMC was excellent. The Hanoi Hilton was less good.

I really enjoyed the madness of Saigon but it's a bit of a culture shock coming into it straight from the Uk due to the 40C heat, 100% humidity and 8 million people. Certain streets are very "gap yeaaaar" and others are very much not so.

We started there for 4 days so everywhere else felt pretty "quiet" in comparison. The jet lag was pretty wild and we slept for 24 hours on arrival.

Hoi An was lovely, very peacful and an excellent place to properly relax for a few days after Saigon (and buy a hilarious tailored suit).

I'd also add that Danang is pretty grim and I wouldn't bother. It's basically an artificial city which the government has forced as the third city of the country and thus it has very little history / interesting sites.

Out itinary was London > Saigon > Da Nang, taxi to Hoi An > Fly to Hannoi > London. Never got to visit the north which was my one regret from the trip, Sapa looks like a cracking bit of the country and i'm a mountain man at heart.

Cooking Class

by Mai Trang @ Saigon and Around – Discovery Indochina Tour Vietnam Cambodia Laos and Myanmar

Perhaps Asia’s greatest culinary secret, Vietnamese food is on the radar but hardly a global phenomenon. Essentially it’s all about the freshness of the ingredients – chefs shop twice-daily to source just-picked herbs from the market. The result? Incomparable texture and flavour combinations. For the Vietnamese, a meal should balance sour and sweet, crunchy and silky, fried and steamed, soup and salad. Wherever you are, you’ll find exquisite local specialities whether that be the ‘white rose’ of Hoi An, the canh chua of the Mekong Delta or good ol’ pho of the north. Follow the suggestions below for a culinary tour you’ll never forget.

Angkor temples: hire a bike in Siem Reap, and cycle there. It's much easier to avoid all the coach parties that way, as you can cycle in the opposite direction and have the place to yourself. For the temples further out, hire a tuktuk and driver for the day. Book somewhere with a pool as it's very hot, and you'll want to cool off after cycling.

Phnom Penh. Great place to spend a few days, with brilliant street food. You'll want to visit S21 and the killing fields. it's truly horrific but gives you a much better understanding of the country.

Good Morning Saigon

by Mai Trang @ Saigon and Around – Discovery Indochina Tour Vietnam Cambodia Laos and Myanmar

Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) is Vietnam at its most dizzying: a high-octane city of commerce and culture that has driven the whole country forward with its pulsating energy. A chaotic whirl, the city breathes life and vitality into all who settle here – visitors cannot help but be hauled along for the ride.

From the finest of hotels to the cheapest of guesthouses, the classiest of restaurants to the tastiest of street stalls, the choicest of boutiques to the scrum of the markets, HCMC is a city of contrasts. Wander through timeless alleys to incense-infused temples before catching up with the present in designer malls beneath sleek skyscrapers. The ghosts of the past live on in buildings that one generation ago witnessed a city in turmoil, but the real beauty of (erstwhile) Saigon’s urban collage is the the seamless blending of these two worlds into one thrilling, seething mass, while a host of new and exhilarating tours get you way off-the-beaten track.

On an Island in the Sun (Lake Titicaca Remix) | Bolivia

by Taylor Record @ Travel Outlandish

You’ll leave Isla del Sol, an island on Lake Titicaca, claiming to have day tripped on “the world’s highest commercially navigable lake”. I bet you’ve just been waiting your whole life to say that, huh? But having seen many of the world’s relatively oldest, biggest, unnecessarily tallest, and arbitrarily best attractions, I can safely say that Lake Titicaca is absolutely worth a visit. It might be the world’s highest, and South America’s second largest, but grandeur aside, it is a lovely place exploding with Bolivian culture. Stretching some 190 km, Lake Titicaca stands besides the Great Lakes in size with a delightfully Bolivian twist. On a quick jaunt from Peru, you’ll find the shores of Copacabana speckled with hardworking women in bowler hats, wearing braids that would take finer haired women a lifetime to grow. You can order trout fished straight from the water, cooked at least thirty different ways, for $3 a plate. The balsa boats call to pre-Colombian times, and no one really mentions the swan-shaped boats and XORBS in the harbor. Lake Titicaca is surprisingly kitschy (as evidenced by the very weird hillside hotel) but these are the things that bring Lake Titicaca from slightly overrun natural wonder to delightfully […]

The Ha Nhi are one of the most decoratively dressed but elusive ethnic groups in Vietnam. The various sub groups that encompass this diverse culture reside in mud clad houses, sloping up the mountain sides of Lao Cai and Lai Chau. Each Ha Nhi village dons differently styled traditional attire, showcasing a multitude of textile skills across the region.  In 2017 Haute Culture visited the Ha Nhi of Y Ti village numerous times and built relationships with artisans there. Together, we developed a textile workshop for our annual Hill Tribe Textile Tour of Vietnam. In Y Ti, the residents wear a unique black cotton ensemble meticulously appliquéd with motifs made of coloured cording and a stunning head dress braided from black acrylic yarn and real human hair.  Who are the Ha Nhi The Ha Nhi are a collective of different ethnic sub groups living in the north of Vietnam. They speak their own language, which is said to be similar to the Akha people living in Thailand and Laos. Before 1986, the Ha Nhi were known to farm poppies for the opium trade. The Vietnamese government have since illegalised the trade, so they now live off the rice they grow on their terraces and keep […]

When Shit Hits the Fan, Move to Berlin | Germany

by Taylor Record @ Travel Outlandish

Living in Europe had crossed my mind plenty of times before, but I always struck it down as soon as it did. Without a Master of Engineering or a Swedish husband, I assumed that the paperwork would make moving to Berlin impossible. But, I have to say, there’s nothing like shit hitting the fan to make a girl chase down her wildest dreams. Moving to Germany isn’t the same for all passports or professions, but as a [US] American in a creative field, I found the process quite easy. Ready to pack your bags, get your German Freelance Visa, and relocate to the very wurst country on earth? I promise you you’re in for the time of your life. Here are practicalities you should know when moving to Berlin. The First Steps of Moving to Berlin Step 1 | Make Your Appointments (… way ahead of time) Some nationalities need a visa before travel, while other nationalities can convert their permit in-country.

wl on "Vietnam and Cambodia tours.."

by wl @ Singletrack Forum » Topic: Vietnam and Cambodia tours..

I cycle toured Vietnam in 1999 and went to Cambodia around 8 years ago. Highlight for me was the North West - Tonkinese Alps I think it's called. Rode from Sapa back to Hanoi the long way round - took about 9 days I think. Nowadays you can do it by motorbike bike or as part of a tour, or on public transport I guess. It's utterly breathtaking and there's lots of culture in the form of hill tribes etc. A bit off the beaten track too, since most tourists just go to Sapa and don't venture beyond. If you're short of time, Sapa is worth a visit.

Other highlights for me: Mekong Delta, HCM city, Hanoi, Hoi An, Marble Mountains, overnight train. Halong Bay looks ace but touristy (I never made it there). In Cambodia, I only had a week. Ankgor was great but get there at the crack of dawn to avoid (some of) the crowds. I enjoyed Phnom Penh too. Food in SE Asia is amazing. My tip - eat on the street as much as poss. Enjoy yourself.

Teufelsberg: No One Listens Better than the NSA | Germany

by Taylor Record @ Travel Outlandish

Berlin was still devastated from WWII in 1957, and you’ll find a mountain of rubble in Grunewald Forest to prove it. Debris too much to bury and too heavy to move was instead piled into a mound; On top of a Nazi military-technical college, at that. They called it Teufelsberg (Devil’s Mountain). Since its construction, Teufelsberg has served many purposes. For a time, it was equipped with ski jumps, but the jumps began to decay after 30 years of non-use. Next, it served as an NSA Listening Station. In 1963, US Allied forces selected Teufelsberg as a superior vantage point for listening in on Communist communications. The structure was abandoned after the Berlin Wall fell in 1989. In the 1990’s, investors bought the site with plans to build a hotel and apartments, but the project was deemed unprofitable, so they never built. There have been talks of both preserving and destroying the harrowing reminder of  history, but the towers of Teufelsberg still stand. And today, where there was once ruin, there are murals. Closets overflow with unused supplies, and there are only beams where walls once stood. You tread through fields of shattered glass and concrete crumble. Handrails rust and canvas […]

The 6 Best Shopping Destinations in Seoul

by Donna @ Haute Culture Textile Tours

Shopping in South Korea is a serious business. In fact, it might seem that all South Korean’s do is shop. But having explored the shopping districts of the city, I can sympathise. The diversity found in Korean design is exhilarating, as are the multitude of markets selling fabrics, haberdashery and handicrafts. There are way too many to mention them all, but these six destinations were particular favourites of mine. Within them I found everything that is integral to contemporary Korean style, from antiques to Hanboks, vintage fashion to cultural crafts, and stylish concept stores to sensational street food. Exploring the city in this style will serve you well. If you love shopping you’re gonna love Seoul, so let yourself get sucked into the mad but exciting consumerist culture that South Korea has to offer. Dongdaemun Market Dongdaemun market is one of the biggest haberdashery and fabric markets that I’ve ever had the joy to visit. There are over 50,000 manufacturers selling wholesale clothing, fabric, trimming and unique fashion items. The maze-like mini-metropolis is spread over two buildings and six floors. Give yourself plenty of time to explore this cave-of-wonders. The crowd here is mixed; expect to bustle your way through […]

Purépecha Style, An Indigenous Identity Stitched With Pride

by Donna @ Haute Culture Textile Tours

The Purépecha are an indigenous group of people located in Michoacán state Northwest of Mexico city. They speak their own language and reside predominately in the foothills of the Sierra Madre Oriental mountain range on a volcanic plateau surrounded by forests and lakes. The women of this region dress in a style soaked with Spanish influences and stitched with stories of folk life. The Purépecha people were a considerable pre-columbian civilization that maintained their independence from Aztec Empire despite numerous failed conquest attempts. It wasn’t until the 1530s when the Purépecha were eventually overruled by the Spanish conquistadors and their armies. Despite being converted to Catholicism the region has managed to maintain it’s rich traditional customs, as well as it’s reputation for producing folk art and fine crafts. Copper, carpentry, painting, ceramics and textiles have been traded by the same towns for over a thousand years, making Purépecha products some of the finest and most sought after in Mexico and beyond. The Purépecha people have a well earned sense of passion and pride about their artist ancestry and culture. This can be witnessed on the local women who strut their textile skills daily on their traditional dress. Purépecha women have a distinctive ethnographic dress adapted from […]

Saigon Along Riverside

by Mai Trang @ Saigon and Around – Discovery Indochina Tour Vietnam Cambodia Laos and Myanmar

The ‘rice bowl’ of Vietnam, the Mekong Delta is a landscape carpeted in a dizzying variety of greens and slashed with mighty waterways. It's a water world where boats, houses, restaurants and even markets float upon the innumerable rivers, canals and streams that flow through the region like arteries. At times you can quite simply lose sight of land.

The area is both riparian and deeply rural, but it's also one of Vietnam's most densely populated regions, with nearly every hectare intensively farmed. Visitors can dwell on southern charm in little-visited riverside cities, sample fruits traded in the colourful floating markets, or feast on home-cooked delicacies before overnighting as a homestay guest. Mangrove forests, sacred Khmer pagodas and off-the-beaten-track attractions round out the picture.
