Canals – Special trait of Amsterdam

The canals and the bridges crossing them surely give tourists a chance to enjoy breathtaking scenery and seduce them to take millions of photos as they are stepping through or on boats. Those canals, besides, offer some other valuable things, according to locals.

The easiest way to wander off or travel to and fro the city is canals. Throughout three different routes there is a canal-taxi service system allowing people to get to places easily and conveniently. Tourists can experience traveling
from point to point of the city by boats. There are a lot of bout tour service providers who are locals around Amsterdam. The use of canals in this beautiful city doesn’t stop as above but expands on events and parades. This city is famous for on-water events and festivities all year round.

Lastly, houseboats are easy to be found and seen as main housing of people living here. Many of them are for rent.

Gee, it’s interesting if your life is like a boat bobbing around on water. A really great experience we must try some time.

Arequipa – The “White City”

photo source: wikitravel

In contrary to Nazca, Puno, and Cusco, Arequipa is one of the Spanish and mestizo culture, which were developed in Peru. No Inca artifacts or ruins are found in the city. It is a part of the so called “Southern Peru Tourist Corridor”.

The weather gets warmer in the winter than that in the summer. This city has another name – the “white city” because of its sillar buildings in the area. Sillar is a white stone which was quarried  from the surrounding volcanoes: Misti, Chachani, and PichuPchu.

Embodying abundant indigenous and Spanish colonial cultures, with the 468-year history dating back to the very first day of foundation, cultural architecture (such as Catholic churches, some refurbished ancient houses as living museums) can be seen around the city center and some surrounding areas. It is a UNESCO Human Heritage site.
