Heritage Village: Where Culture Comes Alive!

Posted in Air Travel, Dubai, Uncategorized by Sharon Pinto on April 12, 2010

The best way to get a glimpse and feel of Arabic culture is through the Heritage Village located near the mouth of the Dubai Creek. Heritage Village can be viewed while on a boat tour in Dubai too. Amidst the big shiny skyscrapers here, this village is the only place where you will actually be able to picture how Dubai looked 100 years ago.

The occupations that were in vogue among the Arabs many years ago, come alive at the Heritage Village. They come alive in the form of life-sized people made of clay engaging in their trade. As a tourist, you will just need to take an hour or two of your evening to enjoy this site. The Heritage Village is small; which is the best characteristic of it. This guarantees that you would have enough energy to visit other places.

As Arabic culture is very simple to grasp at the Heritage Village, the DSF has also included this location in the Kid’s Calendar for DSF year 2010. This village displays traditional handicrafts, restored houses, Bedouin snacks, birds of prey displays, camel rides, horse demonstrations, cultural dances and generally depicts a festive atmosphere. Thus it is one of the most enjoyable venues in the city.

The Heritage Village is open from Saturdays to Thursdays from 8am-10pm and on Fridays from 8am-11pm and 4pm-10pm. You can make a booking yourself or let a tour company make it for you. As far as reaching Dubai is concerned you can make an airline travel booking instantly with www.travellerszoo.com our online travel booking system.

India: A World of Experiences

Posted in India, Uncategorized by Sharon Pinto on March 26, 2010

The entire globe is aware of the uniqueness of India that is part of the Asian continent. Though it has not succeeded at becoming a developed nation till date, it has found its way to the top as one of the BRICK countries.

Though poverty prominently exists in this country it is still rich in culture and heritage. It can survive for itself as it produces a myriad variety of crops on its fertile land. Everyone has realized what India is, but the sad part still remains-  The people of India still haven’t realized what a hero it has been and how it can can benefit us ‘Indians’ in the future.

Geographically- India is beautiful. It allows you to witness all kinds of landforms and climatic conditions.

East west, north, south and central Indioa provides the traveller with special divided experiences. Although India as a country is too small to hold the different unique aspects of the entire world, it still does… You can experience the deserts of Arabia in Rajasthan, a mini Canada in Kashmir, a Hawaii on Goa, the Amazone in the south-east, an Africa in north-east India or of course, even a lively New York > Mumbaikar style!

Life is a great travel trip, but the problem is that it doesn’t come with a map. We have to search and choose our own ways and companions to reach the destination.

Mumbai: ___________

Posted in India, Maharashtra, Uncategorized by Sharon Pinto on March 19, 2010

 

Call Mumbai whatever you want. Its a city full of opportunities, glamour, poverty, niceness as well as luck. Mumbai, formerly known as Bombay is the capital of Maharashtra. 

It is the second most populous city in the world and the biggest city in INDIA. Mumbai makes dreams come true and is also known as the Alpha City. Thus it has the guts to survive by itself. After all..it is part of one of the BRICK countries. Tourists are always amazed at the mix of ideas, styles, food, religion and people they get to meet here. 

Mumbai is an archipelago of 7 islands…. (Even we ‘Mumbaikars’ couldn’t believe that as kids). These islands were- Bombay Island, Parel, Mazagaon, Mahim, Colaba, Worli and Old Woman’s Island also known as Little Colaba. According to archaelogists these islands were inhabited since the Stone Age. 

The city and the suburbs form 2 distinct revenue areas of this island city and the Bandra-Worli sea-link connects the two. 

You can’t get enough of this city- not now… never! 

Online travel bookings to Mumbai are easily available at http://www.travellerszoo.com/# .

We provide the safetest airline travel bookings.

 

 

What came 1st..Easter or the EGG?

Posted in Easter, India, Uncategorized by Sharon Pinto on March 17, 2010

I just happend to take a sneak peek at the origin of Easter eggs.. Where did they come from from? Who in the world started this?

Image credit: wikipedia.org

    Well, according to my sources an egg is a symbol of life and friendship not only in Christianity but in many cultures… Not just eggs made of chocolate and marzipan, but the actual salted kind. the Easter Egg tradition began in spring. Some say that was the time when Christ rose from the dead. Some also say that Mary Magdalene went to the court of the Roman Empire with an egg, which symbolized to her that Christ was risen. The Emperor didn’t believe her. He laughed and said- someone rising from the dead  was as likely as the egg in her hand turning red.   Of course, that is exactly what happened:  the egg turned red and she continued to proclaim the good news to the imperial household.     Nobody knows the real origination of this ancient festival of passing on eggs as goodwill. But this tradition is alive till today. It’s either the strength of the tradition that has kept it alive, or the toothy taste of the so called ‘Easter Egg’…

The DSF is over..why should you go to Dubai?

Posted in Dubai, travel photos, Uncategorized by Sharon Pinto on March 15, 2010

The most spectacular buildings have been constructed in Dubai right now. This very city was barren in the 1980’s, but look at it now…its full of life and its better than an oasis. The heat out there would be nothing like you have ever experienced before..But there’s nothing to worry about. You will be kept in an ice-box where ever you go. Example: Step out of your AC room, get into your AC car, enter an AC hotel, etc. (our travel agents make such hotel bookings too you know…yeah its not a big deal)

But if comfort is not what you are looking for and if you’d like to live like a real thirsty traveller in Dubai, get on a quad bike and ride on! I even advice you to check out Dubai city illuminated in the night.. (dont pick your glares and forget your camera’s please)

Every Living Being is a ‘Traveler’

Posted in Uncategorized by Sharon Pinto on March 13, 2010

Let there be no boundaries

 

People and animals can’t do without movement. Plants: Considered living, also sway with the help of a gale. For what can be done by staying still?… Physical rigidity can leave many things unaccomplished. This is a broad fact; but holds true in various scenarios.
Another fact is the more you walk, the more you work… the more your eyes and minds travel, the more you learn! 

You are a traveler no matter where you are. Even if you don’t cross the boundaries of your home, you still travel. 

That’s why the Travellers Zoo was made. It was made for the ‘flamboyant you’. 

http://www.travellerszoo.com/# wishes you the best. We hope you enjoy every second of your vivacious life!Image credit: darkwaters.org
