Jamaican Delicacies

Amazing Jamaican Delicacies

To most folk, Jamaica brings to mind beaches, rum and Reggae. But talk to anyone whos been there, and theyre bound to mention the food. Theres a staggering amount on offer; rich-tasting, diverse and well worth trying out. These are the five things you really should taste when visiting Jamaica.

Jerk

Jerk is a staple in Jamaican food, often sold by street vendors and at beachside huts, but as youll see its on offer in bars and restaurants too. Youll come across jerk chicken, pork, goat, beef or even jerk fish because “jerk” basically describes the method of cooking. Meat or fish is marinated in a special sauce. The sauce used includes pimento seeds, herbs, and peppers. After a very long marinade the meat is cooked slowly, normally over an open flame. Each cook is likely to have a slightly different take on what goes into his or her sauce, and with some its a closely guarded secret!

Patties

Patties are to Jamaica what burgers and hotdogs are in the USA. They are sold everywhere in Jamaica, and there are heated opinions about what and who makes the perfect patty. Patties are filled and fried pie. Whether they contain meat or vegetables, theyre a very tasty, rich and filling fast food. Find a busy patty stand and you know youre in for a treat.

Rundown

Rundown is normally served as a starter. Its a fish-based dish, and as youd expect the Jamaicans are experts at cooking seafood of all kinds. Prawns or fish are cooked in coconut milk and seasoned slowly for a long long time, until the flesh is so tender it can literally run down your face. Creamy and smooth, its a real taste of the Caribbean.

Escovitch Lobster

Another fish-based favourite, Escovitch Lobster should be tried at least once by everyone who visits Jamaica. Escovitch is probably best known as a lobster dish, but there are many seafood Escovitch versions. Describing it as fish cooked in vinegar and served with a vinegar sauce may be factual, but it really doesnt do the dish justice. Its a staple for restaurant menus for a very good reason. Fortunately that means that finding a place to sample it shouldnt be too difficult.

Dukunnu or Duckoono

Dukunnu (which is also called blue draws or tie-a-leaf) is served as a desert or a sweet snack. Coconut, grated yam or bananas, spices and cornmeal are mixed and tied up or wrapped in banana leaves. It is very rich, smooth, and very very tasty.

Fireworks festival in Da Nang 2015

After one year of waiting, Da Nang people have the opportunity to have the same eagerness to brilliant fireworks performances. Da Nang International Fireworks Competition 2015 will officially launched with the theme of “Da Nang – Symphony of Colors”. This year’s International Fireworks Festival is expected to bring local people and visitors outstanding and splendid firework performances. The firework festival in Da Nang will take place in two consecutive nights of 28th and 29th of April 2015. The competition also started at the same time with the anniversary of Vietnam Southern Liberation and Labor Day. Therefore, the number of tourists in Vietnam tour packages coming to Da Nang sharply increases. There are many ideal places for tourists to admire wonderful fireworks performances created by reputable and professional teams coming from EU, US, Australia, Africa, and Asia – Vietnam team. Official bleachers Like previous years’ competitions, the fireworks performances venue is at the eastern bank of Han River. To prepare for the event, Da Nang prepares 28,000 – seat bleachers. The number of seats is not enough to meet the demand of local people and visitors. The bleachers are opposite to the performing stage. From here, visitors can embrace everything of the festival. Sitting on the sidelines, in addition to enjoying the art fireworks performances, visitors can soak up in the fireworks performances and rhythms of music. Up until now, the number of ticket buyers is bigger and bigger. If wishing to own one, you be quick. Do not wait until the opening day to buy, as the ticket price will be definitely a cut-throat rate. It can be double, 5 times, or 10 times bigger than normal. Ticket price of the Da Nang Fireworks Festival fluctuates from 300,000 VND to 500,000 VND. However, to some locals and visitors could not buy tickets, there many ideal places to contemplate wonderful fireworks performances. That will be unforgettable memories in Da Nang tours during the days. Han River bank Han River has been one of the most famous attractions in Da Nang. The river is not just associated with daily life of local people but also a historical witness of the city. Tran Hung Dao Street running along the river is an ideal position to admire the outstanding and fireworks performances at a short distance. Here is also the place where bleachers are situated. If visitors have a chance to admire the fireworks performance from here, this will be a great ideal to see fireworks performances on water surface and in the sky. Apart from Tran Hung Dao Street, Bach Dang Street is another road running along the river. The distance from Bach Dang – Phan Dinh Phung T-junction to Le Van Duyet T-junction is seen as the most beautiful streets to enjoy fireworks festival at a short distance. Perhaps, during the festival, the long streets are occupied by a lot of local people and visitors. If choosing Bach Dang Street as the place of enjoying the competition, you should come early. Otherwise, visitors can hire a boat to travel on Han River to enjoy relaxation, cool breezes, and magnificent fireworks performances. Maybe, this is the view of the clearest and brightest fireworks. However, when on boat, you will not hear the musical melody of fireworks performances. Bridges in Da Nang Bridges in Da Nang are also populous venues for visitors to come, wait, and immerse in the exciting atmosphere of the festival. Han River Bridge is one of the most famous ones in the city. Here is a favorable position to unique and splendid fireworks performances. However, to have a stand on Han River Bridge during the festival is a great challenge. It is the reason why many people come to the bridge so early in the afternoon, though the performances take place in the evening. Meanwhile, Dragon Bridge, voted as the most beautiful bridge in Da Nang, connects Da Nang International Airport with the city’s most popular beaches and the downtown area, so it does have a practical purpose. From Dragon Bridge, visitors will be overwhelmed by a series of fantastic fireworks performances. As it is a new and “hot” bridge, visitors have to come here early to reserve a stand before the competition. If you do not want to leave your hotel early in the afternoon, you can drop by Thuan Phuoc Bridge. Thuan Phuoc Bridge is about 2km from Han River Bridge. It takes about 15 minutes to walk there. Standing on Thuan Phuoc Bridge is not too ideal to admire underwater fireworks performances. But you still can contemplate excellent high-distance fireworks shows. Compared with the above locations, watching fireworks on Thuan Phuoc Bridge brings the most comfort and less crowd, than on Han River Bridge or Dragon Bridge. Linh Ung Pagoda Linh Ung Pagoda is one of the most famous religious attractions in Da Nang and in religious Vietnam tours. The pagoda is quite far from the venue of this festival; thus, you might not admire the magnificent underwater fireworks shows. However, from the pagoda, you can contemplate the beauty of fireworks performances, but also the panoramic night view of the entire city. After that, you can enter the pagoda to visit and pray for the best wishes. Riverside cafs This is the -hottest- business time of coffee shops near Han River Bridge. Memory Restaurant next to the bank of Han River and near Han River Bridge owns a prime location to see the fireworks display. To have a wonderful place to enjoy the competition, you will spend about 500,000 VND. Besides, many cafs along Bach Dang Street are interesting places for tourists to enjoy drinks and fireworks performances. Yet, the price at the cafs will be much higher than the normal days. Immersing in the exciting atmosphere of the fireworks competition, AloTrip – a famous and travel agent with AloTrip.com as its official website will provide tourists all over the world with full information about the festival, as well as some services to facilitate your stay in Da Nang such as tickets price to Da Nang, and some useful tips. Author Bio: AloTrip International Limited the field of travel services. They provide travelers all necessary information about travel in Vietnam as well as Indochina. Besides, them three official websites VietnamAirlinesTickets.com, VietnamToursholiday.com and VietnamVisaConsultant.com will offer tourist all needed services and procedures to have a perfect journey.

Top 4 all inclusive tips with Booking.com

– Check what drinks are included. You might be limited to local wine or spirits and depending on your location these might not be to your taste. So whilst beer is often charged separately you may think it’s worth it.

– Are you going on an activity based trip? If so, find out what’s actually included. For example, whilst you may have access to water sports you might find that you have to rent the equipment which will then raise the cost of your holiday!

– As you’re going all-inclusive it’s tricky to know whether or how to tip. Tipping varies from country to country, but if you do want to thank a member of staff, tip them in person rather than at the reception desk so you can personally show your thanks.

– The temptation with an all-inclusive deal is to think you have to indulge in everything all the time as you’ve already ‘paid for it’. Remember, there’s always tomorrow.

Cultural Tour to Ajanta and Ellor Caves

The famous Ajanta and Ellora caves, shrines cut out of rock, by hand, and rank amongst some of the most outstanding specimens of ancient Indian architectural heritage.

The 34 Ellora caves represent the epitome of Indian rock-cut architecture. These caves are an impressive complex of Buddhist, Hindu and Jain cave temples built between the 6th and 10th centuries AD near the ancient Indian village of Ellora demonstrate the religious harmony prevalent during this period of ancient history.
The magnificent Ellora Caves were built at time when Buddhism was declining in India and Hinduism was beginning to reassert itself.

The 12 Buddhist caves to the south also called Vishvakarma caves are the oldest Ellora caves which were used for study, meditation, communal rituals, eating and sleeping.
The 17 centre dedicated caves were created during a time of prosperity and revival of Hindusim, they occupy the center of the cave complex, grouped around either side of the famous Kailash Temple. These caves are dedicated to the god Shiva, but there are also some images of Vishnu and his various incarnations.
The 5 caves to the north are Jain which reflects the distinctiveness of Jain philosophy and tradition. Many of these Jain caves have rich paintings in the ceilings, fragments which are still visible.

Reason The Bear Do Hibernation

Hibernation is one part of their existence that always proves a popular topic among wildlife enthusiasts. If you have booked on to one of the range of organised bear tours, you will no doubt be travelling at a time when animals are no longer in hibernation, as you would be unlikely to see any otherwise. But what is hibernation, really, and why do these animals spend months in a deep slumber surviving with no sustenance at all?

Why do Bears Hibernate?

Bears hibernate through pure necessity. Conditions in their habitat can be harsh and, particularly in winter, the animals find it very hard to function efficiently when food is often scarce and temperatures plummet. It is therefore easier and more effective for them to become dormant and sleep through the hard times, thus conserving energy and staying warm. During hibernation their metabolism slows down and fat reserves are used up at a slow and steady rate. They eat and drink nothing when they hibernate and therefore do not need to eliminate waste either.

What About in Captivity?

If you don’t get the opportunity to go on any of the fantastic bear tours available, you can always visit a zoo to observe the animals up close and personal. While its nowhere near the same experience, bears in captivity do not need to hibernate so you can usually observe them at any time. Food is plentiful, as is water, so therefore the animals do not need to become dormant to survive. They may, however, simply through an evolutionary mechanism, slow down in the wintertime and become more listless and eat less. A bear in captivity displays much the same behaviour as one in the wild and so, due to instinct, it will often sleep during the day. Pregnant bears in captivity usually still hibernate as a way of conserving energy for their offspring.

How Long do they Hibernate?

Hibernation begins in October and comes to an end sometime in April or May. Spring brings with it new growth and a plentiful supply of nutrient-rich food sources, which encourages the reflex to awaken and replenish their reserves.

If you embark on one of the excellent bear tours run by a reputable and experienced wildlife travel company, the trip will be led by an expert guide well versed in the animals’ behaviour and their yearly (and daily) cycles. You’ll be able to gain a fascinating insight into these wonderful creatures.

Raja Ampat, Papua Indonesia

The sparsely populated Raja Ampat islands comprise of around 1000 islands just off Sorong. With their sublime scenery of steep, jungle-covered islands, scorching white-sand beaches, hidden lagoons, spooky caves, weird mushroom-shaped islets and pellucid luminous turquoise waters, Raja Ampat has to be one of the most beautiful island chains in Southeast Asia.

Pure, unadulterated beauty isn’t just what draws people here, though. Raja Ampat has good birdwatching with a couple of species of birds of paradise present and what many call the best diving in the world. Little known until the last few years, Raja Ampat’s diversity of marine life and its huge, largely pristine coral-reef systems are a diver’s dream come true – and fantastic for snorkellers too. It’s like swimming in a tropical aquarium. In fact, the waters are so clear and fish so numerous that you hardly even need don a mask. We saw six sharks swimming around below us merely by peering out the window of an over-water hut! So great is the quantity and variety of marine life here that scientists have described Raja Ampat as a biological hot spot and believe that the reef systems here act to restock reefs throughout the South Pacific and Indian Oceans.

The four biggest islands are Waigeo (with the small but fast-growing regional capital, Waisai), Batanta, Salawati and Misool. The Dampier Strait between Waigeo and Batanta has many outstanding dive sites, so most accommodation options are on Waigeo, Batanta or three smaller islands between them: Kri, Gam and Mansuar.
