Choosing The Very Best Best Costa Rica Vacation Rental Houses

by on Mar.31, 2010, under Travel

When planning a vacation there is no better place than beautiful Costa Rica. Located in Central America with borders on both the Caribbean Sea and the North Pacific Ocean it is a paradise on earth. Whether favoring sand and beach, just having an adventure or studying the country’s wonderful eco-system there are interests for everyone. Fortunately, there are a large number of Costa Rica Vacation Rental Houses available, which will fit anyone’s needs or desires.

Reserving a beach front rental at Malpais or Santa Teresa will provide one with the opportunity to enjoy one of the most beautiful sunsets in the world while sitting on a lovely veranda or lying on the beach. The nearby jungle and the restaurant’s well-known chefs add the opportunity to explore, not only the countryside but the wonderful cuisine served in their exquisite restaurants.

Whether the vacationer simply wants to relax and forget the stress and worries of the office or take part in the many adventures offered there is something for everyone. A person interested in fishing might like to explore the inland lakes and rivers. The more daring one might like to soar through the jungle on a line and view the foliage and animals below. Swimming and surfing as well as sun bathing is at hand with beachfront rental accommodations.

Villa rentals that have an ‘all exclusive’ package are ideal for those who do not wish to be bothered with cooking or searching out restaurants. With this package everything, including the meals is furnished. This is an ideal arrangement for people who like to have an adventurous day and not worry about cooking or cleaning up.

The choice of a villa rental or a beachfront rental will, of course, depend on the desires of the visitor. One thing that might be taken into consideration is the weather. If a person likes the summer season they would visit between December and April. If they like the winter season they would visit between May and November.

Many newlyweds choose Costa Rica for their honeymoon. Strolling on a moonlit beach, eating in a gourmet restaurant, visiting the National Parks, the possibilities are endless. This, the most romantic period of their entire lives, can be remembered always with their time spent in this exciting country.

When planning a trip to Costa Rica it is very easy to go on the Internet and obtain a full description of the various rental accommodations. These sites will also tell of the many excursions and opportunities for personal exploration of the area. After selecting the rental desired and making a reservation one can set back and relax, knowing a good vacation is ahead.

The beautiful Malpais/Santa Teresa cities in Costa Rica provides an experience that is a cut above anything else in the world. The opportunities for personal preferences from golf to fishing to exploring are outstanding. Costa Rica Vacation Rental Houses are very reasonable in price and provide excellent benefits for visitors.

Investigate Before Selecting A Xian Tour

by on Mar.31, 2010, under Travel

Xian has a long and interesting history, even more so than most other Chinese cities. It served as the capital for no less than twelve ancient dynasties which ruled for thousands of years. The city is of course best known for the world famous Terracotta warriors – more than seven thousand very life-like statues of soldiers originally created to guard over the tomb of the Emperor Qin Shihuang. There is a lot more to Xian than just the warriors though and you will be ill advised to try and visit (and understand) everything on your own. Rather take a tour with a guide that knows his history. In this article we will advise you about Xian Tours and what to look out for before you choose a particular one.

When comparing different tours, beware of things that are not included in the price. These often come in the form of ‘optional’ extras and can inflate the price markedly. Any tour of Xian that doesn’t include the venues below should not even be considered.

The Terracotta warriors will of course be the highlight of your tour. When this site was first unearthed by archaeologists during the 20th century it was widely hailed as one of the most remarkable finds of the past hundred years. The museum complex has very interesting exhibits as well, ranging from artifacts to treasures and everyday items excavated from the site. There’s also an excellent movie shown at regular intervals explaining the site’s history.

After the Warriors, most tours visit the Banpo site. This is the intriguing remains of a 6000 year old matriarchal community. They used tools made chiefly of wood and stone. The men fished while the women served kept themselves busy with raising the children, pottery and spinning.

Another important city landmark and well worth a visit is the Big Wild Goose Pagoda. (There’s also a Small Wild Goose Pagoda, so don’t get confused). A few kilometers from the Pagoda you will find one of the best preserved ancient city walls in all of China. If you stand on the wall you can for a moment be forgiven to think that you are actually an emperor.

The Muslim influence in Xian is clearly visible in many parts of the city. If you want to closely experience Muslim culture with Chinese characteristics, make sure your tour includes a visit to the Great Mosque and the area around it. This is a very exotic part of the city and it feels very different to most other Chinese cities located further East.

For avid shoppers the area close to the Mosque is a paradise. The street called Huajue Xiang in particular is lined with many stalls offering crafts, arts and antiques. Prices are on the whole more reasonable than in larger cities like Shanghai or Beijing. You should be wide awake, however, since quality can differ widely from one stall to the other. If your tour bus stops at a specific stall or shop, don’t feel under pressure to buy anything there.

No traveler should ever leave Xian without first tasting the delicious food this city is known for. Xian is of course best known for jiaozi, a delicious dumpling stuffed with meat, chicken, seafood or veggies. These taste so good that you would want to take some home and they’re highly nutritious too!

Now that you know more about Xian tours – what to look out for and what to enjoy, there is nothing to stop you from visiting to this delightful, exotic and interesting Chinese city. It might well prove to be the highlight of your visit to China.

Xian Travel Service provides a wonderful experience when you tour Xian
