Travel Guide – Best Things to Do and See in Iceland

In recent years, Iceland has become one of the most popular travel destinations in the world. With the incredible view you could find on most roads, the lush landscape and the undeniably most magical scene of Aurora Borealis, Iceland has attracted people to come year by year.

Enjoying time while watching Aurora Borealis as one of things to do in Iceland

There are many things you should do and see while traveling Iceland that you won’t be able to stick around in just one place. In order to make sure that you don’t miss anything out, here is the travel guide you have to read before going to Iceland.

1. Explore the Golden Circle

The Golden Circle is one of the most popular trips in Iceland that you shouldn’t skip. It is the driving route which starts out from the National Park named Þingvellir to the Geysir geothermal zone, and also the well-known Gullfoss waterfall.

The driving route can be generally followed in 3 to 4 hours, but if you want to maximize the sightseeing, you can choose to extend it to 8 or 10 hours long.

You will find that there are many tours providing this trip, but, it’s better to take a rental car and explore the area yourself.

Aside from the Golden Circle alone, you can also stop to several spots including the power plant of Hellisheidavirkjun geothermal, the crater Kerið, Laugarvatn Geothermal zone, Stokkur Geiser, Thingvellir National Park, Öxarárfoss waterfall, as well as Faxi waterfall.

2. Snorkeling in Silfra Fissure

Seeing the Northern Lights is a must on every travel guide, but, if you are a fan of diving, you shouldn’t miss the chance in Silfra Fissure.

The water is claimed as the clearest that you can find in the world because it has been filtered constantly by lava rocks. The visibility of the water is over than 100 meters and you can actually drink it.

Aside from the clean and clear water, by swimming in this place, you will be able to go through the two tectonic plates.

Yes, you can actually swim through two continents which are the Eurasian and the North American continental plates. This cool experience is a must on this travel guide.

3. Visit the Snæfellsnes in Western Iceland

You can find many amazing natural landscapes and features in this region. Even the locals state this place as magical since it has Snæfellsjökull glacier.

If you have read the book with the title Journey to the Centre of the Earth written by Jules Verne, then you have to visit this spot since it is the place that inspires the book.

After Snæfellsjökull glacier, you should continue your trip to other travel destinations such as Bjarnarfoss waterfall, Gerðuberg, Rauðfeldsgjá gorge, and Langaholt where you can enjoy the golden beaches.

4. The Aurora Borealis Tour

You can always choose to drive yourself to some spots where you can see the Northern Lights. But, booking a tour is preferable because you will be able to make the most out of your time.

The tour provider will definitely take you to the exact spot where you can witness and amaze the most beautiful site.

When the weather isn’t good enough, they know alternative places, so you can still have wonderful sights. The natural phenomenon occurs from August to late April, so make sure you have set the right time to visit Iceland.

Bali Photography Service to Provide Quality Images for Villas

There are many interesting things that can be discussed about the world of tourism in Bali. The one that is quiet popular is how it is affecting a photography business where there is one extra service that is offering to the villa management which is the professional images of the accommodation.

In fact, there is even some of Bali photography services specifically targeting the villas as their main only market. Question remains, how can it be a good business ever since there are so many photography services in Bali?

Have you ever think that there must be at least a reason why photography service demands are increasingly high in Bali?

To me, it is actually a simple math where high market demand is influenced by the large number of tourists. Later, they will need accommodations where today–villas are pretty much dominated as the main alternative for travellers than hotel rooms.

Bali photography service to market a villa accommodation

And that can be easily proven where many of popular area and destinations in Bali are easy to find even the luxury villas. Just take a look at them at popular beaches, you’ll know that I am right about this.

Bali photography service for villa

Somehow, it seems that Bali is oversupplied for accommodation. The competition itself is getting crazy to rent a villa since there are too much of them. So that, the owners and managements should had a great and creative strategy to market their accommodations.

And surely it is not a new thing at all to involves the high quality photography as one of the main thing the villa accommodations should have. That’s when the accommodation business should thinking about where to get the professional and high quality service to support that purpose.

Photography will really take the important role especially in attracting the potential travellers to rent a villa and the professional images for that is how you will sell the accommodation.

Villa and all kind of accommodations are the huge business that need more money. So that, you have to market it the best possible way you can do. The better the images are, people will getting attracted by that. But no matter how luxury the villas are, if you are displaying it in worst image quality, the image angles aren’t interesting, then your villa may considered the same as what you have displayed.

To help you with that, you will need to find a Bali photography service, visiting a studio or simply getting to know some of the professional photographers and start talking about your needs.

High quality images is a great investment for villa managements. They can used for various needs such as to registering the accommodation in several online reservation sites, make them as the main content for villa’s official site and social media accounts and so on. Those professional images can even be used for years. And by the way, photos are the first impression for travellers when they are looking for the accommodation online.

Away of Photography When You Are In Traveling!

Today, seems to be travelling won’t be the special thing if you can’t really capturing all the moments while you are enjoying all of the luxury of a trip your are getting.

Many of us are taking images almost all the times that made me thinking we don’t really enjoy the travel moments.

I mean, how can it be possible for us to really living up in the best moment in life if we are getting busied by which photography poses and filters to be used for images we are going to upload on Instagram?

In one side, photographing travel moments are needed, but in the other side, it can actually ruin your trip without you being realising about it.

try to getting away of photography when you are in travelling

Photography surely not a mistake when you are making use of it at the travel destination you are visiting. But when it is dominated all of the things you should do at the destination, then it will surely become the issue you have to get rid off it.

Capturing the travel moments is actually not to keep on updating things you do for your followers, but I think we should re-think about it since all of the moments you are getting through are valuable and many of them should never been published online.

Travel images can help you remembering the beautiful things you have done, things you have shared with your lover or best friends, the most rare destination you have not been visited before, all of the moments you can’t experienced at the other places and many more. So, since the first place you are traveling, you are actually have been realised that every journey you are taking, many of them are valuable and can help you to be a better person with a better point of view about life.

But in fact, all of what I have been expected on above is nothing at all since many of us are considering those as the useful things. Later, I once was telling myself to try not to capture any images at all when going out for traveling.

At first, it can be troublesome since I think that I was getting used to be capturing images every where I was going. But, after trying a bit hard not to think about that. until today, I can really know and enjoy what the real leisure itself. And you can also do out of the box as what I have been proven.

You will then enjoy the traveling by your own eyes not lenses and you will have more times to spend with those who you are inviting in a trip and start talking about anything.

Anyway, I’ve seen people who are taking children in a travel and some of those kids aren’t treated properly since the parents are busy taking images. What a beauty this life is!

How to See More Dragons in Komodo Island Tour

The drop-dead gorgeous Komodo National Park in Flores, Indonesia, is something that would fulfil all the list of a Perfect Paradise on Earth. It’s tropic, it got all the crazily transparent and turquoise water, it has dozens of empty beaches an` uninhabited, notched islands, and it’s blessed with rich and diverse marine life under the water. But what makes Komodo Island tour even more special is the dragon that lurks between the tropical bushes and a certain vibe of prehistoric left over that Komodo offers. As dragons are not something you would see everyday, you can’t just let this adventure pass into mediocre. Here’s how to get the most of the dragon trips. 

How to See More Dragons in Komodo Island Tour

How to Maximise Your Chance with the Dragons on Komodo Island Tour

Take Both Komodo Island and Rinca

Due to limitation of time, many tourists need to choose between Komodo Island and Rinca to see the dragons. Both are the main home of the dragons, and both are inhabited by the same dragon species, so it would make sense if you want to choose one. If you are on multiple days Komodo Island tour, however, we highly suggest you to take both islands. Because why not?

Despite being the only home of Komodo dragons in the wild, spotting these lizards has not always been easy. Many times, tourists need to accept the lack of dragon sighting along the track and have to be satisfied with only once or two spotting. That’s why visiting both islands might help with your “dragon hunting”. If you fail to see the dragons on one island, you will always have the other for a B plan. 

Do Not Bring Foods in Your Pocket

Komodo has a keen sense of smell and they are somewhat stay with their prehistoric instinct. Have you ever heard how the dragons loves to gather around the ranger’s kitchen? Yup, that’s because of the smell. So if you have something yummy somewhere in your pocket, don’t be surprised if you find one of the dragons creepily  following you behind.

Look for Dragon Nest 

One thing to not be missed when you are having a Komodo Island tour is finding the dragon nest! Often, they are formed as huge pile of earth with 4-5 holes where the eggs are laid. Sometimes the mother of dragons (sadly she’s not Daenerys Targaryen) is seen guarding the nest. Often times, the nest is empty—but you are free to observe the dragon eggs! if you are lucky, maybe you can even see young dragons hatchling from their eggs—but that’s such a rare occurrence so don’t put your hopes high. Nevertheless, the dragon nests themselves are still a great sight to behold. 

How to Minimize Accommodation Cost on Your Travel

How to minimize accommodation cost on travel

Accommodation is easily one of the biggest expenses on your travels—if not the biggest—and it’s one of the most common aspect of a travel that people are looking to save on. Luckily, hotels no longer monopolize most of the travel accommodation scene anymore. A lot of alternatives have emerged, and accommodation has been more affordable than ever.

How much is your budget?

Knowing your very own finances is the most important step. This would also help you set a realistic goal for yourself. By knowing your own financial capability, it’ll help you tremendously in planning for your trip. And not just on accommodation, but the entirety of your trip. Make sure that saving on accommodation won’t cost you a leak on finances on other areas—most notably transport. This is why you need to approach your cost-minimizing in a comprehensive way.

Avoid hotels and resorts

This is probably the most obvious one. If you want to save on accommodation, definitely avoid staying at hotels. Think of them as luxuries. You may be able to afford them, but you don’t need them. There are numerous options that you can use without sacrificing your comfort nor safety.

If you have no other choice but to stay at a hotel for whatever reasons, then make sure to research the prices early on. Remember to clear the cookies on your browser every time you’re searching for accommodations so that the prices won’t inflate when you search again.

Consider your itinerary

Make sure you have at least a general idea of which areas you’ll be visiting. Not just a vague notion of the place, such as “Ubud”, “Mexico City”, or “Osaka”. Even though you consider yourself the “flexible” person, having a clearer idea on where you want to go to is extremely essential.

Even in one city, the price of one part of the town compared to another differs greatly. Staying in a place in the area where you’re going to spend a lot of your time in is ideal.

Staying with a local or fellow travellers

Websites such as couchsurfing is invaluable for this. However, this may not be for everyone. Remember that couchsurfing does not function merely as a place for you to crash during the night and gone the next day. You’ll be expected to interact a lot with your hosts.

Remember that price always depends on location

City centers are bound to be far more expensive compared to the residential or suburban areas
However this is where the factor of your itinerary comes to play. Don’t just pick the cheapest location, then having a to go through a one hour commute every day when you go out to your destinations.

If you know you’re going to spend a long time in a certain place, then make sure to pick a location at that particular area, or at least, one close to it. Transportation is a cumulative expense that easily adds up.

Be realistic about your expectations

Research the average prices of both hostels and hotels. Compare with other alternative options you have such as rental homes like airbnb. Don’t expect to be given free accommodations as well unless you have a close, trusted friend living in your destination.

Expecting people to give you free accommodations for whatever reasons is similar to what backpackers did. So, be realistic. And make sure to plan your travel well. You’d be able to save a lot on not just your accommodation, but across all aspects of your travel.
