This beautiful world is filled with unbelievable sights to see, both natural and man-made. There are plenty of lesser-known magnificent structures of the ancient civilization that still exist in today’s era. If you have always loved history and are fond of travelling to off-the-beaten-path destinations, here are some of the best historical sites you should visit at least once in your life.

  1. Bagan Ancient City (Burma)

Bagan deserves to be one of Southeast Asia’s top tourist destinations, but sadly it’s quite unknown. However, this makes it more appealing to those looking for magnificent destinations, minus the crowd.  This old city was the centre of the prehistoric Burmese kingdom in the ninth to 13th centuries. Unfortunately, the ancient city has long been abandoned and forgotten by the tourism because of the neglect and poor restorations by the military that until now govern the nation with an iron fist.

  1. Derinkuyu Underground City (Turkey)

Underground and cave sites have always been fascinating to tourists, probably because they serve as dwelling place during prehistoric times and their use in wars during the ancient and medieval eras. Derinkuyu, located in the province of Turkey, is therefore an interesting archaeological site for tourists. It’s not just a cave site, but an entire underground city, which extends 200 feet underground and can likley shelter about 20,000 people along with their livestock and food storages.

  1. Newgrange (Ireland)

Often called as ‘Ireland’s Stonehenge,’ Newgrange is just as remarkable as the original Stonehenge of UK and also dates to about the same period. Older than the pyramids of Egypt, this historical structure rises in the middle of the vast green plains of County Meath, as if it naturally emerges from the landscape. It is believed that the site served as a burial place because of the tombs found inside it, but is also said to function as ritual site or solar calendar for ancient people to mark the beginning of New Year.

  1. Banaue Rice Terraces (Philippines)

Expanding in an area of 4,000 square miles and 5,000 feet above sea level in the mountains of Ifugao, you’ll find something that the locals call the ‘eighth wonder of the world.’ Ancient people did this incredible work by hand more than 2,000 years ago. Today, people are still maintaining the terraces for planting crops, and it’s widely believed that if all the terraces could be lined up side by side, it would be more than enough to encircle the globe. Truly an amazing work.

The next time you set on a trip to explore the historical wonders of the world, include these off-the-beaten-path attractions in your itinerary. The earth is littered with remnants of the ancient era, and you can be sure to find hidden treasures anywhere you go.

Unless you are blessed enough to fly first class, air travel is not the most pleasurable experience. Long haul flights can consist of many horrific endeavours, which includes restricted access to electricity and entertainment, crying infants, and of course the dreaded toilet woes.


If you can’t afford or just don’t want to spend so much on a plane ticket but looking for a bit more of comfort to your trip, there are some things you can bring on-board to ensure a more pleasant travel than your last. Here’s a collection of items to make your future long-haul flights much more comfortable.

  1. Noise-Cancelling Headphones

Not just a set of earphones, but noise-cancelling headphones that will shut off any sound in the background. On a crowded holiday flight, this is your saving grace from crying toddlers and a great snorer seated next to you.

  1. A Heavy Duty Powerbank

What could be worse than running out of battery in the middle of a long flight? Make sure your iPhone, laptop, and Kindle are all with you throughout the flight by investing in a portable battery that can charge more than one gadget at once. You’ll be able to listen to podcasts, play games, or watch movies during the whole flight when you know you have back-up ready.

  1. Water

It is very important to stay hydrated while on-board a plane. Due to lack of humidity inside the aircraft, it’s easy to get dehydrated when travelling, which can lead to discomfort and headache. Be sure to bring with you a bottle of water before boarding.


  1. Reading Material

Nothing beats a good read over a course of a long-haul flight. Starting a book before take-off assures that you will finish a significant portion of the book or fall asleep after 10 pages. Either way, it sounds comfortable, though.

  1. Comfortable Pair of Jeans

Well, not only bringing, but you should be wearing your most comfortable pair of jeans. When you spend so much time in an aircraft, your body slightly expands as your body is bloated up with gas, and you can get physically uncomfortable after an hour. Wear a flexible pair or a loose one to give room to a bit of bloating up when on air.

  1. A Blanket

If you have enough room, a small blanket is a useful addition to your carry-on suitcase. There is no more comfortable way to catch some nap once you’re in a trans-Atlantic flight.

There are so many other ways to keep yourself comfortable during an air travel, so don’t fret. Hopefully, these tips help you pack up and, above all, enjoy your entire trip.



While we all have pet peeves when it comes to our fellow flight passengers, flight attendants also have their own set of hates about us that we may not be aware of. Here, in no particular order, we enumerate five things on what our FA friends wish we knew before flying.


  1. There’s no way you can sneak into business class.

You might slip through the curtain, sink into the back row seat, and think that no one noticed it—well, think again! Flight crews have passenger list that shows exactly who is sitting where. If you asked for an upgrade and you’re granted, that’s fine; but otherwise, don’t take something you have not paid for—or else you’ll have to do the walk of shame as you march back to your designated seat.

  1. Use the passenger call button only when necessary.

And by necessary, it means medical-treatment level. Press the button only when needed, but don’t treat it as if it’s a servant bell. Unless you feel nauseous or for some reason you accidentally cut yourself, give the bell—and the crew—a break from constant “ding ding”.

  1. The safety regulations are for your own good.


Maybe you didn’t have enough sleep, feel cranky, or just stubborn, but the main reason why cabin crews exist is to ensure your safety. Asking you to put your seatbelt on, your seat in upright position, and your bags underneath your seat isn’t about being bossy or playing tricks on you—it is for your own good.

  1. Wastes are for bins, not for crews.

Do not hand your dirty napkins or bag of vomit to the flight attendants, unless you’re disabled. Remember that flight crews also handle your food—do you really want to risk cross-contamination by handing wastes to them?

  1. Avoid stacking items on the food tray.

Perhaps, you’re thinking that it’s helpful to stack food containers on top of one another when you have finished your meal—but you’re not. The food tray will not fit back in the trolley until the attendant has undone your pile. Just leave it as is—it’s more convenient for both parties.

Considering how frequently they are up in the air, flight attendants know exactly how inconvenient it is to travel and do things with very limited space and resources. While FAs are there to assist you and make travelling more convenient for you, they aren’t slaves and deserve to be treated right.



Packing list articles are everywhere in the Internet today—and the amount of information can be overwhelming for a new traveller. While the majority of those articles focus on the things you should bring, this article will educate you of what NOT to bring.


As a frequent traveller, here are some of the items that end up just wasting space in my luggage.

  1. Special Travel Clothing

Special travel clothing, such as dry-fit shirts and hiking pants, may keep you feel comfortable, but they also make it obvious that you’re a traveller, making you an attractive target for thieves. Unless you go hiking or run a marathon in your destination, pack clothes that you’d normally wear at home.

  1. A Money Belt

This item is included in many packing lists as it keeps your money safe when walking around. However, this can be a little too much in most destinations as you can get by with just keeping your money in your pocket, daypack, or purse. If travelling to a place with higher crime rate (think Rio de Janeiro), then it’s worth bringing one’ but for most places, it’s totally unnecessary.

  1. Sleeping Bag Liner

Perhaps, the idea of bed bugs and dirty hostels creep you out, so you’re packing with you your sleeping bag liner. While this can be a good solution, you can save significant amount of luggage space if you scour for online reviews before booking a place a stay. Plan for your accommodation ahead of time to make sure you won’t be staying somewhere dirty or bug-ridden.


  1. Towel

Most hotels provide towels, so leave yours at home. if really need to bring one, take a microscopic microfiber one, which absorbs any moisture faster and dries quickly. There some of these travel towels that come with a clip, so you can attach them to your pack to dry while on the move.

  1. Laptop

If you’re taking a tablet or an iPad with you, there’s no point of bringing your laptop, especially not when you can pair it with Bluetooth accessories to enhance its functionality. Tablets and iPads are much lighter on the luggage and can serve as an eReader as well.

Knowing what not to bring is just as important as knowing what to bring when travelling. The next time you pack for a holiday getaway, keep these things in mind for lighter and better travel experience.
