In the past few years, Japan has become one of the trendiest tourist destinations, and while the vast majority of visitors tends to stay in known central areas of the city, such as Asakusa, Shibuya or Ginza, there are a number of other neighborhoods that deserve to be explored. So, without further ado, let's dive into one of the most happening neighborhoods in the Greater Tokyo area: Kichijoji.
Whether it's ancient or modern history, Vietnam is a country full of memories and Ho Chi Minh A.K.A. Saigon has often been at the center of it.
If you happen to stop by or visit the city for a couple of days, no doubt the travel agents will try to convince you to do the Cu Chi tunnels or Mekong Delta tours. Based on independent reviews, some people loved them, some didn't, so really just make a decision based on your instinct.
During our visit, we decided to not do the tunnels or the delta. Instead, we walked extensively around town, interacted with the locals and discovered as much as we could in the given time.
This is a list of highlights chosen among the various activities, museums and restaurants that we experienced.
War remnants Museum
Whether you are a history buff or not, if you are a human being, this museum is really worth a visit to learn more about a history that affected millions around the world. The highlight of our visit to the city, this museum raises a lot of questions about humans and even ourselves.

Oman is the hidden gem of the Arabian Gulf, and Muscat is much less sassy than Dubai or Abu Dhabi in the neighbouring United Arabs Emirates. In Oman, life seems moving slower, the pace is relaxed, frankincense's aroma fills the streets as women shop in the souks and fishermen sell their fresh catch.
From the stunning coastline and inner mountainous desert and wadis to green forests and waterfalls, Oman is a country of unique multi-faced beauty, offering different settings, each with its magnificence.
In this article, we'll visit one of the most beautiful resorts in Oman, and we can tell you that very few places gave us the feeling we had when entering the Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa in Muscat, Oman.

where would you like to go in Brazil?
We are sure most people would answer they'd like to visit cities like Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo, Salvador as these are the most popular Brazilian travel destinations thanks to their famous carnivals, beaches and cultural hubs.
These cities are definitely worth the numbers of tourists visiting them every year, however, there is a lot more to Brazil than Rio or Sao Paulo or Salvador; how do we know this?
We know because we just spent 10 weeks roaming the country South to North and saw only a fraction of the immense and diverse place that Brazil is.
Over the next few weeks, we'll tell you more about our 10 weeks trip to Brazil, but right now you are reading this article because you love adventure travel, right?

As children, one of the things that appealed to us were tree houses. Perhaps this is the result of human anthropology or of the sense of adventure that kids have.
What's great though, it's that today you can experience staying in tree houses in many places as part of glamping experiences.
However, there is one place that is far more than just a tree house.
