    A Photogenic Wonder: Visiting Pegan in Burma

    I arrived at the ancient city of Pegan in Burma (Myanmar) from Mandalay. My overloaded bus pulled up a dusty unsealed road and stopped outside a ramshackle hotel. It was hard to believe that Pegan was one of the premier tourist sights in South East Asia.

    Qingdao: Blue Skies, Clear Waters

    Voted in 2009 as China's most livable city, Qingdao (青岛) is a former German concession from the 19th century. It is now a thriving, bright city in a gorgeous seaside location. The sea air continually refreshes the air, with frequent, moody spells of fog, much like San Francisco. In the humid oven that is China in the summertime, Qingdao is a pleasant oasis to escape and enjoy.

    In Varkala it had just stopped raining when I arrived with a crowded bus. Four hours standing with the ticket inspector that walk on human bodies to be paid from everyone.

I, hereby, sincerely suggest you should go to Gol Gul Sa Temple for a walk, though it would be very exhausting but it would not disappoint you.
