Dubai is a city and emirate in the United Arab Emirates known for luxury shopping, ultramodern architecture and a lively nightlife scene. Burj Khalifa, an 830m-tall tower, dominates the skyscraper-filled skyline. At its foot lies Dubai Fountain, with jets and lights choreographed to music. On artificial islands just offshore is Atlantis, The Palm, a resort with water and marine-animal parks.  A relatively new tourist destination, Dubai was gaining popularity in recent years until the global economic crash of 2008. Dubai is essentially a desert city with superb infrastructure, liberal policies, that became popular for its excellent tourist amenities.

The Clock Ticks at Home, as it Ticks Nowhere Else… Holland Travel Blog

travelling-in-holland-tours-and-vacation-packages

Holland is a region and former province on the western coast of the Netherlands. The name Holland is also frequently used informally to refer to the whole of the country of the Netherlands. This usage is commonly accepted in other countries, and not entirely uncommon among the Dutch themselves, though some in the Netherlands and particularly in other regions of the country may find it undesirable or misrepresentative. The Netherlands, a country in northwestern Europe, is known for a flat landscape of canals, tulip fields, windmills and cycling routes.  Canalside mansions and a trove of works from artists including Rembrandt and Vermeer remain from the “Golden Age.”

 

Even if you’re completely fluent in the Dutch language, you might still scratch your head and silently wonder from time to time, “what on earth is that person talking about!” That’s because the Dutch language is often peppered with a colorful selection of Dutch proverbs and sayings that are not always easy to interpret hence: “Zoals het klokje thuis tikt, tikt het nergens” meaning The clock ticks at home, as it ticks nowhere else.

Hong Kong is an autonomous territory, and former British colony, in southeastern China. Its vibrant, densely populated urban center is a major port and global financial hub with a skyscraper-studded skyline. Central (the business district) features architectural landmarks like I.M. Pei’s Bank of China Tower. Hong Kong is also a major shopping destination, famed for bespoke tailors and Temple Street Night Market.

 

Macau is an autonomous region on the south coast of China, across the Pearl River Delta from Hong Kong. A Portuguese territory until 1999, it reflects a mix of cultural influences. Its giant casinos and malls on the Cotai Strip, which joins the islands of Taipa and Coloane, have earned it the nickname, “Las Vegas of Asia.” One of its more striking landmarks is 338m-high Macau Tower, with sweeping city views.
