River Of Love

The Love River (爱河) in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, runs from the South of the city to the North. It is especially beautiful during sunrise and sunsets. The river became a romantic place for couples to meet and therefore the river was known as the Love River.

 

We actually went there after dinner and was told that it was closed for the day. However, we went there again the next day as our hotel was just nearby and managed to get on to the boat ride.

 

Apart from the beautiful scenery provided, there are also bike paths and walkways for a walk under the stars. Musicians are sometimes seen to be playing to the crowds. There are countless attractions along the Love River that visitors and locals return to it every time.

To enjoy a full experience of Kaohsiung, the boat tour has become a popular choice among many visitors. Plan for an entire afternoon to take a ferry ride and enjoy your journey through Kaohsiung!

The Land Of Africa

South Africa is famous for their Safari’s life. I have not been there before, but I have plans to go there in the next few years time. When speaking of South Africa, what comes into your mind? Do you think that it is a very dangerous place and with no civilization? It is not necessarily what you think it is.  Have you heard of your friend’s experience who have been there before? I have friends who have been there and returned safe and sound. They also told me about their wonderful experiences! South Africa is also the most developed country in Africa.

 

Kruger National Park is South Africa highest rated park. This is the park then I am looking forward to. As there are many tours to choose from 2 days to 5 days and if you are can choose a budget tour which is much cheaper. Some tours also let you experience staying in a tent. There will be guides leading you game drivers and the bush walks as well. In those tour you would have the chance to spot the Big Five. Big Five refers to five of Africa’s greatest wild animals the Lion, Leopard, Elephant, Buffalo and Rhino.

After this review have I change your mind of what you think of South Africa?
