Hong Kong one of the most beautiful places in all of Asia. And it is no wonder that Hongkong attracts millions of tourists each year. People from all over the world, as well as Hong Kong locals themselves (often called “Hongkies”), are attracted by the impressive structures, the peaceful and meditative destinations all around the region, great shopping opportunities as well as loads of fun to be had in various theme parks.
The Po Lin Monastery
The Po Lin Monastery, otherwise known as the Precious Lotus Monastery is perhaps the most popular Buddhist monastery in the world. People come to Po Lin to look at the beautiful and serene gardens as well as to send their prayers up to the heavens.
It is a great place to relax in and it offers its visitors a chance to meditate and take some quiet time alone away from the hustle and bustle of the modern world. The Monastery is also home to one of Hong Kong’s most popular sculptures and that is the copper statue of the Big Buddha. The statue stands at a staggering 34 meters.
The Hopewell center is an impressive architectural creation. It is one of the most recognizable landmarks in Hong Kong and is the very first ‘circular skyscraper’ in the locale. This 214-meter tall building is made up of 64 floors. The structure stands on a sloping hill and is the reason why its rear entrance is accessible only from the 17th floor; a fact that makes it even more popular to Hong Kong’s crop of tourists.
It has always been said that no visit to Hong Kong is complete without a trip to Victoria Peak. Tourists come during the day in order to see the Hong Kong harbor glimmer under the sunlight. They then continue to remain until the sun has set so that they can witness one of the most famous cities in the world come to life after dark. Victoria Peak is home to tourist attractions such as the old summer residence of Governor MacDowell, Peak Sky Terrace, Bubba Gump restaurant, EA Electronics and the world-famous Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum-Hongkong. Shopaholics can while away their time in the Peak Tower or in the Peak Galleria. It is accessible via the Peak Tram or by the bus services that go to and from the locale.
Community tourism is a type of tourism whose objective is to involve and benefit local communities, especially aboriginal people in the Third and Fourth World. For example, villagers host tourists in their village, managing the operation communally and sharing the revenue. There are different forms […]
I was working in U.S. for a long time, and I noticed several old people ready for retirement, looking for a peaceful country to spend the rest of their lives.
It was so funny to talk to a very old man named Randy, looking for information about Panama (Caribbean). Even when Panama is a nice country for going on vacation and enjoying the beach for a while, I would never suggest you live there. The criminal index is high, every single place is crowded (almost 4 million people sharing a very small territory), low political stability, among others.
So I told him… Do you like tropical weather all the entire year? He said no. So I suggested Uruguay as a great country for retirement.
Uruguay has everything you need to spend the rest of your life with a peacefully living.
You can buy a very decent house in our Top City Punta Del Este, for only 100K (if you have 250K to spend you can have a mansion-like house near the beach). Then you can stay there over the summer and enjoy its beautiful beaches. If you like the idea of being alone, read, enjoy the sun, and swim without people bothering you, then you can find your peaceful place within the 40 miles of the coast of crystalline water and clean beaches. At noon you can have lunch in any of the top restaurants offering a wide range of foods. From international dishes, fresh fishes or our classic meal for export (you won’t find any closer to it anywhere in the world, not even in Argentina).
You can enjoy the sunrise in the port, walk over the coast, be sure no one will harm you or bother you.
Even when you can really enjoy Winter in Punta del Este as well (going to the movie, casino, theatres, shopping mall, or just staying at home resting) I suggest you spending 5 hours driving to the north of the Country, to spend some time in “Las Termas”. This wonderful region has to offer thermal waters! You can go to the public thermal pools, but I advise you pay some bucks and go to a private one. I stayed there in Horacio Quiroga’s Hotel. A 5-star hotel with great thermal pools where you can spend the time relaxing and enjoying warm waters until night.
If that is not enough, you can spend some weeks of your retirement taking a tour in our old city named Colonia. Where old streets (from the beginning of the 1800’s) remain as never touched, visited by thousands of tourists yearly, you must definitely stop by and have a dinner next to Rio de La Plata river, watching the moon and drinking some fine wine.
Of course, if you like movement, night, shopping, casinos and all like that, you must go to Montevideo. It is only 2 hours away from Punta del Este and has everything a capital has to offer. Plus a very nice and kindly people, safe, and many great places to visit.
Well, this post is getting long, so, I just must say, Uruguay is without any doubts, the country in Latin America I would choose for retirement. It is safe, cheap, quiet and funny. What else do you need?
If you desire interesting work opportunities and professions, you will quickly realize that it must be important that you can be a new well spherical individual. Take a long time away from jobs as well as your career searches and take into consideration how take […]
