Eid holidays are on. Adventure lovers must be planning to visit both inside and outside the country. Here we have listed 5 awesome places to visit this in this Eid holiday.
Tiger’s Nest Temple, Bhutan
Also known as Taktsang, it is a sacred monastery built on a rocky cliff 3,000 feet above the Paro valley. Legend has it, some 1,300 years ago, Guru Rinpoche materialized on the back of a flying tigress and converted the Bhutanese to Buddhism at this place. This is a must-visit place because of the unique location and view that will leave you mesmerized. The background story of this place makes it even more unique and worth seeing.The Tiger’s Nest can be found just over 6 miles north of Paro. It is hanging on a cliff 10,240 ft over the Paro Valley. From the ground it is often shrouded by a thick mist but this glimpse alone will motivate you to reach the top. At a medium pace the top can be reached in 2 hours and it is a fairly easy climb. It is a steady and long walk up hill on a dirt path.
Sajek, Khagrachori, Chittagong, Bangladesh
Sajek is an amazing and beautiful place located in Khagrachori, Chittagong, Bangladesh. It is a very unique place within Bangladesh and therefore should be on every Bangladeshi’s bucket list of places to visit within Bangladesh. Sajek is basically located high up in the hills and the place itself is very rural and basic and mostly local tribal people live there. Choice of accommodations is generally very basic (staying in traditional housing which have been made into motels- basically a bed to sleep in!) but one good looking hotel has also been established there as well. However green, serine, peaceful, mesmerizing clouds, amazing views, out of the world experience…… you are going to get everything here. From Dhaka, you have to travel for around 6-8 hours in bus to reach Khagrachari and then from there you have to travel in four-wheel drive vehicles (called “ChanderGari”) to reach Sajek by travelling for another 4 hours. This four hour journey is through very hilly terrain and the latter part of this journey will give you great panoramic beautiful views. Once you reach Sajek, you can climb the highest peak, by trekking through predefined road and enjoy the awesome views from top. Also you can eat at the local eateries and get traditional tribal food there. The best time to enjoy the views are at sunrise, from the helipad (of border guards) and also check out the clouds below.
This one is a bit of a wild card. You’re already off the beaten track by simply being in Bangladesh but if you want to really get away from it all, then this is the place for you. Thiswaterfall in Bangladeshis set on the Sangu River. It is among the largest waterfalls in the country by volume of water falling. The wild hilly river Sangu suddenly falls down here about 25–30 feet.Nafa-Khum is a beautiful waterfall found a 3hours walk from Remakri, which is found 3 hours by boat from Tindu, which is a 3 hours drive from Thanchi! It may not be the biggest waterfall but it’s awesome none-the-less and you can swim in the pool, the trek is beautiful too and you’ll really feel like you’re traveling if you make it out here!
You can eat very well—and very cheaply—in Taipei. The restaurants may not look posh, but the quality of the food is superlative. And there’s a huge variety of restaurants—in addition to local Taiwanese specialties, you’ll find regional cuisines from all over China, as well as great Indian, Japanese and even Italian options. Just make sure to leave some room for snacks—street-vendor food here is addictive. If you are going to Taipei, most likely you are flying into Taiwan’s Taoyuan International Airport (TPE), Taoyuan airport is not strictly in Taipei, it is around 45 minutes west of Taipei, in Taoyuan county. Taoyuan airport has 2 terminals, with similar services (Taxi, Bus, etc) from both terminals.
Hoi An , Vietnam
This city on the central Vietnamese coast is a well-preserved example of the important Southeast Asian trading port it was from the 15th-19th centuries. Already a common stop for backpackers, it is becoming better known to tourists. On the 14th day of each lunar month, the town trades its electric lights for traditional coloured lanterns. Sights include the Japanese Covered Bridge and the Quan Cong Temple. Let the town’s expert tailors make you some bespoke clothing.
