A Jaw Dropping International Motor Show!

Oil prices may soar and economies may stumble, however when it comes to the most prestigious and sought after motor show in South East Asia, these issues are clearly not obstacles.

The Bangkok International Trade & Exhibition Centre, known for its accommodation of high quality-national as well as international events, is the home of the International Bangkok Motor Show.

Organized by Grand Prix International Company Limited, this Motor Show is an annual event that originally was hosted at the Lumpini Park. However due to its steady rise in popularity and demand, it was shifted to its present location, which can accommodate vast crowds which usually amounts to over 1.5 million people.

The Motor Show includes many innovative features and exhibitions including the Mustang Club Show, Volkswagen Club Show, the ever popular Classic Cars Show, Austin Mini Club Show, Sports Car Show, and the Classic Bikes Show.

Since the Motor Show is not just about the cars, it also includes the likes of an Overnight Rally, Off Road Contest, a Boats Show, Radio controlled cars and planes show, and even a Miss Motor Show Beauty Contest.

To top off the show, there are also various seminars, lectures and workshops dealing with relevant topics relating to energy conservation, the new technology involved and what could be expected in the future, how to get the maximum out of your motor equipment etc.

The inclusion of all this makes the International Bangkok Show a most valuable and enjoyable experience for young and old alike. Even the non car enthusiast will no doubt be blown away by some of the models displayed by the over 30 vehicle brands that participate in the show.

The visitor to Bangkok for the Motor Show may be looking for a comfortable yet more affordable accommodation option, and if so should consider an apartment hotel in Bangkok. The Citadines Bangkok Sukhumvit 23 is one such Bangkok serviced apartment that offers its visitors the ultimate in comfort and privacy, affording the traveller the opportunity to feel right at home.

Nepal Travel – or Lack There of

Nepal Travel – or Lack There of

 Many people enjoy travel to Nepal for many reasons, the beautiful mountains, the unique diverse cultures, the great food and the healing energy that exists throughout the country. Many travelers coming to Nepal would not immediately think about how interesting it can be to watch or sit in traffic or even to simply watch how a petrol station works.
The world seems to be having a fuel crisis and if you should travel to Nepal you will find that here it is no different, although their approach – like everything else in the country – has been temporarily resolved with thinking outside of the typical box.  In most countries, those in need of some fuel can freely drive up to any gas station or petrol/diesel pump and there will not have to wait to buy what they need.  If there is a delay, then it is to wait for maybe one or two cars and you can go on your way.  In Nepal, you would be considered lucky if the petrol station is open and even more fortunate if it has any fuel to sell.

A line at the petrol pump, signifies that there is “actually fuel today” where in most countries the populations are complaining of increasing gas prices yet they do not even care to know how fortunate it is that they even have the opportunity to buy fuel. When traveling to Nepal you will find that to buy fuel for a vehicle, just like everywhere else, gives the purchaser the opportunity to make money. Yes it costs money (and I am not saying that the prices do not imply “highway robbery”) but to get this fuel, it allows you to use it to make more money by helping you get to work via public transportation such as taxi or bus and also helps you get to and from work if you have your own vehicle. Even if you are just visiting Nepal, this fuel is an essential part of your trip. For those who travel to Nepal, they will have a need for buses, taxi’s or even a private vehicle – all requiring the difficult task of attaining the fuel.
The petrol lines alone really test the need and desire of any driver to survive in this fuel-dependant world. In Nepal there are two lines at every station, one for motorcycles and one for automobiles. The lines for both are usually equally long in length sometimes with the driver in the waiting car (or not). The missing driver could be out trying to make money without the help of his car until the petrol pumps open.
Now when I say long lines, I do not simply mean around the block, I literally mean down the street around the corner up the hill and down two more streets and even then the line might go on. Anyone traveling here for the first time will find this sight unbelievable! They immediately think, ‘Who would wait in that line, it is ridiculous!’ The traveler soon finds although the sight seems crazy it is still interesting to see.
Unfortunately, these atrocious lines create intense and complicated traffic jams that can be – for lack of a better phrase – a pain in the ass. Local or traveler, you might have to sit in traffic just because of the location of the petrol pump – right next to tight passing lane areas that are easily and often congested with cars, motorcycles, bicycles and pedestrians all trying to pass at the same time. Sitting in your incommodious car on your bum for hours at a time, can even cause an actual pain in your ass. This may happen whether you are or are not even in line for the fuel, you could just merely be trying to pass the cramped road.

In fact, the way these inconvenient traffic jams happen is this: a car pulls into the line for the pump, maybe his vehicle sticks out into the street just a tiny bit. More cars will get into the line behind him. Eventually, there are countless cars parked in front and behind him waiting for fuel and the vehicles are so close together there will be no moving them until the station opens and each driver attempt to get their fuel. Meanwhile, the narrow road will find two cars going in opposite directions that will try to pass the obstacle at the same time but are not able to maneuver around it without damaging their property.

While you (the hopeful traveler) are watching all of this normal chaos from your taxi, the problem seems like it would be easy to fix, if one of the cars simply backed up and let the other car go by, the problem would merely disappear. But while the thought process of backing up and letting the other pass is happening, motorcycles and other cars traveling in both directions have come up behind the impassable road, causing there to be a line to get by the small gap between the two front-line cars. There is no space – maybe an inch or two between the two ‘problem’ cars, and now all the vehicles will need to work together to maneuver around this once small bottleneck in the road.
(For those who have never traveled to Nepal, it is important to mention that the driving laws are very limited. If a motorcycle can fit by the jam, they will drive right through the little bit of space that an automobile could use to move out of the way. Everyone just pushes their way to the front adding to the thickness of the traffic jam.)

Finally some passing pedestrian – since the police might not be conveniently around – will start to direct everyone to get the cars, motorcycles and other pedestrians all moving in a helpful manner to get everyone around this one small seemingly insignificant blemish. Petrol can take hours out of someone’s day whether they need the fuel or not.

So back to the line for the fuel. When the pumps finally open, with the one line for motorcycles and one for automobiles, you might think of filling up your tank and then stocking up on fuel and saving it at your home for when another dip in availability happens. This is such a sweet and innocent thought, but in reality during these times of ‘crisis’ the petrol stations only allow a certain amount of fuel or a certain amount based on money per person/ per vehicle. Just when you think you have outsmarted everyone and you will not have to constantly wait in these ridiculously long lines, they tell you how it is. There is only so much fuel for the country and with such a high demand they keep it fair by only allowing each customer so much – it could be one or two liters or limited, for example, to 500 rupees per person.

Now you might be a little bitter about the fact that there is a limit on how much fuel you are allowed to buy at any one time, but at least there was some fuel for you to buy for the day (that is if you reached the front of the line before they ran out of petrol).
It is interesting how so many people in the world find the outrageous prices for fuel to be something they need to waste their energy and complaining on a daily basis.

Travel to Nepal and you will see the lack of fuel here and its high in price for the typical Nepali income is mostly seen as a light hearted joke among the locals. The quantity and availability of the necessity that is fuel, they know is out of their hands, so they just adapt to the situation and continue on with their daily lives not usually wasting time bickering about their “victimized” situation and instead they keep thinking outside of the box to make money how they can.

Why to Hire an Iran Tourist Guide

Why to Hire an Iran Tourist Guide

Many people are traveling in Iran without hiring an Iran tourist guide. They miss a range of things that they would notice if they read this article. As a national tourist guide in Iran with more than 10 years of experience, I can narrate lots of occasions when I’ve come across some people traveling in Iran on their own telling me what they have seen during their trips in other cities and towns. By listening to them, I get to know what they have not seen. I do not blame anyone, but I feel I must explain this a bit further.

Language Barrier Is Tackled by Iran Tourist Guides

Tehran, the capital city of Iran, is a different story where you can find someone who can communicate at least a few words in English. Some, of course, know and speak a foreign language quite well. But, as soon as you leave Tehran and set off for another destination inside Iran, you will notice that less and less people can speak a foreign language.
Sometimes, you have to ask for directions, information, etc. If you are in another big city like Isfahan, Shiraz, etc chances are somebody can help you if you are in particular areas of the city. If you are in some remote areas, such chance decreases and you will remain helpless or the body language may mislead you. Eventually, you lose time and miss something worth visiting or experiencing.
An Iran tourist guide can help you in such occasions even if he/she doesn’t exactly have some information about some address, event, local attractions, etc. By knowing the language, this barrier is removed and he can get the information required.

Complicated Cultural Complexities Are Solved by Iran Tourist Guides

Iran is an ancient country with huge ethnic, linguistic, cultural, etc diversity. Having been born in Iran and traveling in Iran for several times and years, a local tour guide can tell you what it is that confuses you and why it is so.
Sometimes you may encounter some issues that may seem unpleasant to you, because you have no previous experience related to such people, language, culture, etc. The eye contact, body language, facial expression, etc are different from region to region even inside Iran. A well-experienced Iran tour guide is sensitive enough to these subtle points and understands them well. He can help you get correct information and impression.
I have seen lots of instances of unreasonable unexpected incidences where doors seem closed first. Actually, they are and it is not a matter of kidding, but there is always a way. And it is in such cases where an Iran tourist guide can get in and solve the issue with his/her tactfulness, intelligence, experience, etc.
Information outside Guidebooks Are Available to Iran Tourist Guides
Travel guidebooks about Iran are usually written by those who have been travelling in Iran for a short period of time. It is far less than sufficient to stay in a town and write about it from various points of view like anthropological, linguistic, historic, superstitious, ethnological, etc points of view. You cannot be an expert in all those fields and write about it during two-day stay in a particular area. So, mistakes are inevitable.
Iran tourist guides have learned lots of these issues through experience. They have seen similar cases that may sound very weird to you first. So, they know how to deal with them, save your time and energy and push the tour against the time.
As a result of getting to know some local people in each region, I’ve noticed that some new doors have been opened to me. Some people are keys to certain events, festivities, well-known experts, mavens, etc in their own communities. Without them, you cannot make it to those unforgettable occasions. An Iran local guide can help you out through his/her connections to such local people.
Tourist Guides Are Highly Trained in Iran
In order to become a guide for tourists, you need to be qualified for it. For the entrance examination, one has to hold a bachelor degree and good command of a foreign language. The level of language that is expected for becoming a tour guide in Iran is relatively high.
Once accepted, they have to go through a six-month long course where they study several different things to be able to handle tours. Upon completion of the course, many of us feel that there is so much more about Iran that we have to learn during years. So, we start kind of a self-study to make sure that we can come up with the type of expectations that exists in this industry.
When experience is added to such education and put into practice, a huge pile of knowledge is built upon it and Iranian guides become quite professional in their careers. Working as such, one learns about the experiences of others traveling the world who visit Iran. We listen to them as they listen to us. We learn from each other and we love to tell one another about our experiences. No one is perfectly knowledgeable about everything, but time and effort add to it over the course of time.

Seek out a travel agent that knows how to provide special care to senior travelers. Be selective when choosing your traveling partners. You always want to travel with at least one other person for safety and enjoyment. While family is always a great choice, don’t forget to think about neighbors and friends, as well.
Group travel will usually get you a discount on airfare and accommodations. Another tip is to learn to travel light. Very lightweight luggage is available with or without wheels. Wheeled luggage is very easy to maneuver through airports, train stations and car rental agencies. If you take medications, it’s recommended to have a copy of the prescription with the doctor’s signature on it, especially for medications such as narcotics. Doctor’s notes and this evidence will greatly simplify moving through airport security with these medications. You can get the bestover 70 travel insurance information by visiting this website.
In addition,travelers insurance is also available.If you need to cancel your trip for any reason, the cost of your trip could be refunded to you. Many cover medical expenses while traveling, but be sure to ask the insurance company before you leave. Every insurance company has different policies, so it is best to know if you are covered before you leave home. Take the time to research the place you plan on visiting ahead of time.
For senior travelers being prepared ahead of time assures them of a problem free vacation. A few of the following safety tips may be of help to you.
Be prepared to take along enough prescription medication to last the length of your trip and extra seven days. It’s better to be over prepared than to wind up in a far flung back country without the medication you need. Many seniors check with their doctor, get a physical, before taking vacations or extended travel. Talk to your physician about the steps you should take in case the unexpected happens.
Be sure to keep a list with you all the time that lists information about your health conditions and medications you may be taking, and contacts for your family and doctor. Give copies to your traveling companions and place a copy in your wallet. Make your travel buddies aware of any health conditions you may have and when to contact emergency personnel.
Remember to ask your doctor about proper times for medication, if you’ll be crossing time zones, and the best way to handle that situation. Also be careful that the local foods you eat are not going to interact unfavorably with those medications. Boost current vaccinations or get new ones. Depending on where you are traveling, you may need to get specific immunizations before you go–sometimes up to six weeks in advance. Drink lots of water during each flight, as the air inside planes is quite dry. Sitting for long periods of time can leave you with stiff joints and a high level of fatigue. Avoid this by occasionally walking up and down the aisle, as well as frequent stretching.
When packing your suitcases, try to limit your items to only those you know you will actually need; this prevents you from having to carry more than necessary. Don’t forget to pack one item for weather that might be unseasonably warm or cold. A sweater or throw will be handy for cool evenings and air-conditioned buildings, even in tropical locales. If possible, take along clothing that you’ll be able to wash and then wear again.
Make sure you take along shoes that will be supportive on long walks. However, be mindful of what your clothing could possibly say about you. Fanny packs and large totes may advertise that you are a tourist. Be aware of your surroundings and carry a bag that can be zipped closed and worn across the chest.Do not keep all of your money or valuables in one place in case of loss or theft. Today air travel is very efficient but luggage can be lost or directed to the wrong destination. Mark your luggage with your name and the destination you are traveling to. This will help the airline reunite you with your belongings as quickly as possible. Make sure you let others know where you are going and how long you plan to be away. Have a neighbor collect your mail and newspaper and keep an eye on your home. Provide a relative or friend with a list that includes all your destinations, the time frame in which you expect to be traveling to those areas, and contact
information for your hotels.
