Bagan: Top 5 best temples

Bagan tempels

Bagan is an area of 42 km² in Myanmar which is full of temples. There are more than 4400 temples! A trip to Myanmar without spending a few days in Bagan is unthinkable. The temples that appear throughout this area give a fantastic impression of the wealth that this place had to radiate almost a thousand years ago. Bagan is often compared to Angkor in Cambodia, but I undoubtedly prefer Bagan over Angkor. Bagan is bigger, prettier, the temples are more interesting and the atmosphere is magical. Visiting all of the temples in Bagan is an impossible task. Which are the best temples in Bagan?

Everything you need to know for a visit to Qom, Iran

Qom

The city of Qom is the religious heart of Iran and is a true place of pilgrimage. I have been fascinated by the city of Qom for many years. Because this is the city which was called home by ayatollah Khomeini for years. I’ve read several books on Iran and Qom always plays a part in them.  The holy city of Iran is full of mullahs and Koran schools. Trying to imagine how the city looks like never really worked out and I decided to have a look at it in real life. Definitely worthwhile to visit Qom in Iran!

Visit Mount Popa on a trip to Myanmar

Mount Popa

Mount Popa is a volcano in Myanmar and on top of it lies a monastery. Quite a unique location for a monastery! Mount Popa is located about 60 km southeast of Bagan. This remarkable mountain is in fact an extinct volcano and comes out of nowhere. A peculiar sight indeed. As far as the Burmese are concerned, this is their Mount Olympus. They believe nats (holy spirits) live here and you should visit Mount Popa on a trip to Myanmar!

The 3 nicest islands in Thailand

thailand

There are hundreds of islands in Thailand and most have been specially developed for tourism. As a result, many islands are crammed with hotels, airports, restaurants and shops. You have to search better and better if you want an island with peace and an authentic atmosphere. I love to end my journey after a hustle and bustle in some parts of Thailand on a quiet and beautiful island where preferably there are few stimuli and where life is very relaxed. Since I have been in Thailand very often and I have visited a different island on every trip, I have seen many islands. What are the nicest islands in Thailand?
