Thailand’s southernmost island Koh Lipe is in the Southern part of the Andaman sea. It is located in Satun Province, close to Langkawi island (Malaysia), about 60 kilometres from the mainland. It is part of the Tarutao National Marine Park, a large group of over 70 islands, and also part of a smaller cluster of islands called the Butang Islands or Adang Archipelago.
Southern Utah is home to some of the most unique geologic formations in the world. Illustrating this vast terrain of twisting canyons and red rock plateaus are six of America's most magnificent national parks.
Zion, Bryce Canyon, Arches, Canyonlands, Monument Valley and Capital Reef National Parks offer breathtaking overviews, brilliant red rock sunsets and adventure-filled hiking trails, plus the opportunity for exhilarating relaxation. Utah's parks are located in close proximity so it is easy to see them all in one trip. Alternately, each park makes a great destination in its own right; you can spend several days exploring a Utah national park and never see all of its wonders.
We have planned to visit Japan long time. Our expectations to the trip were quite high - modern technology from one hand and traditional Japan from the other hand. We wanted to see as much as possible in ten days.
Japan has seen exceptional economic growth since 1950. Now it is one of the World's most powerful economies. Japan has bustling cities burst with skyscrapers, bullet trains and trendy people at the streets. Yet beneath the brash modernity beats an ancient heart. This is still the realm of the exquisite art of the geisha and the skill of the sumo wrestler.
Post factum we can say Japan is a land of contrast and miracles. Tokyo dazzles with bright lights and high-tech gadgetry while traditions and history stand at every corner in Kyoto. Adding to that the peace and sadness from Hiroshima, it made just perfect trip to us.
