Life Without Water: Singapore Tour Packages From Gujarat

Singapore: Life without Water

Many countries have oil,

Many have vast land for Agriculture,

Many have minerals and Metals,

Many Have Gold, Diamonds etc.

But Singapore Has None Of Above.

It is quite understandable that the countries having natural resources, will definitely progress thanks to the natural resources. But, can you imagine any county, which has scarce land for people to live, zero land for agriculture, zero crude petroleum, no minerals, no metals, no gold and most important very less water resources, still progressed and progressed in a big way, yes there is a country, which has achieved great progress without natural resources and that is Singapore.

Singapore has the population of 54 lacs people and total land area in just 716 Sq.km. Singapore got its independence from Briton in 1963, and in 50 years today, it has per capital income of SGD 64000 per annum per person.

The Singapore today is a developed nation or first world country, from developing or Third world country. It’s only due to the will of Singaporean to fight the circumstances and their enthusiasm to progress and live a better life for themselves, and their children, that has transformed the country from third world to first world country.

I would like to give example of water management by Singapore. For passenger travelling from Gujarat should know water management system of Singapore, because Gujarat also has scarcity of water. Singapore reservoir and Singapore river is not able to provide sufficient water for the need of Singapore. Till recently, Singapore was importing their water need from the Johor district of the neighboring country, Malaysia.

Must see thing in Singapore

Can you imagine a country living on imported water, and still progressing fast? Singapore started NEWater factories in 2002 for the reclamation of sewage water. Usable water is produced from treated used water that is purified further, using advanced membrane technology and ultra-violet disinfection, making it safe to drink. NEWater is mainly used in Industry and for Air-conditioning cooling towers. NEWater meets up to 30% of Singapore’s current water needs.

A small portion of NE water is also blended with Singapore reservoir, which would be used for drinking. For the person who is taking tours from Gujarat to Singapore, visit to NEWater plant is must because Gujarat also has a great scarcity of water in western Gujarat region of Kutch and costal district. The processing of reclaimed water for industrial purpose and desalination of sea water can be very useful to the fight the water shortages.

Singapore tour packages

Therefore, people taking tours to Singapore from Gujarat, NEWater is must visit center.

How to get China Visa from India ? – UNWINDING PROCEDURE OF CHINA VISAS

China tour packages

A person may wonder is China visas so difficult that Flamingo is writing a blog on that?

There are lacs of people going to China for business, studies and as tourists.

It is actually very simple to get China visas, thanks to the systematic and clear policies laid by Chinese Embassy. But many do not understand and respect this system and try to find shortcuts and due to that their program gets stuck. We believe that if you follow the right system of Consulate, China visas is easy to get.

A Chinese visa is a permit issued by visa authorities of the People’s Republic of China in accordance with its laws and regulations to a foreign citizen for entry into, exit from or transit through Chinese territory. The Chinese visa authorities will issue a diplomatic visa, courtesy visa, service visa or ordinary visa according to the foreign citizen’s status, purpose of visit and type of passport.

China holiday packages

The most important point is what is the main purpose of your visit to China and which is the most appropriate visa category for your visa application :

Major Purpose of Visit

  Visa Categories

Description of Visa

Commerce & Trade

M

Issued to those who are invited to China for commercial and trade activities.
As a tourist L

Issued to those who are going to travel to China for tourism.

 

If you wish to travel for commerce and trade purpose the main requirement is Invitation letter from Invitee. Now there must be question in your mind what is Invitation letter and how it should be? Let me brief you for the same.

Invitation letter must contain date, addressing to embassy of china, passport details of person who is travelling, purpose of invitation, inviting on which date, signature of inviting person with designation which should be in Chinese, red round stamp of the company should be beside the signature and all of the above   should be on Company’s letterhead,

If the invitee wants embassy to grant multiple entry visa to his/her client, they should mention the same in their Invitation letter.

If one wish to travel china for tourist purpose than they need to prepare detailed itinerary for visa process.

China Tours

How we can understand the validity and duration of stay?

Validity of a visa refers to the period that the visa holder is allowed to enter China. A visa becomes effective from the date of issuance. The visa automatically becomes invalid once its period of validity expires regardless of whether its entries are used up or not.

Duration of stay of a visa refers to the longest period the visa holder is allowed to stay in China from the day following entry to China on each visit.

Overstay in China violates the country’s laws and regulations on control of the entry and exit of foreigners, and could result in a fine or other penalty.

Chinese Embassy provides facility of granting visas in Normal Process, also in Urgent Process in case of emergency of travel by taking extra charges.

Visa Fees for each Indian Nationals are same for each type of visas. While for US Citizen or any third country citizen visas fees differs. For each category of visas, there are different visa fees.

Rejection Ratio of Chinese Visa is near to Zero percent but the only condition is proper documentation. Different type of documentation is required as per the purpose of travel.

Future Tours From India

From ancient days , from the time of Egyptian civilization about 4000 years back , man was Travelling.

Those days , man used to travel to find new land , food, resources & Trade.

In the Greeks & Roman times upto the middle ages , man travelled for Trade .

In Asia, especially in India, China & Malaysia coast , Trade & exchange of knowledge were the prime reasons for man to Travel.

In modern times, with the advent of Aeroplane, Automobiles & Infrastructure , people started travelling for seeing the world , Leisure & knowing new things.

That is why many people focus on sightseeing & comfort when they are travelling.

Thus today’s travel is leisure, sightseeing and business.

Following points will be the future trends.

1)     Reduction of Business Traffic:-

With Internet communication becoming so strong, with webcam, internet phones & web conferences, Businessman would do most of their Business, without travelling & they will be talking on web.

We believe that with the powerful internet overall the business traffic is going to go down in the next 20 – 30 years.

2)     Experience will be the Key:-

Today’s youngsters are so good at internet surfing that they probably have no mystery.

They have seen Youtube , Videos, Wikipedia & websites for many places.

Once upon a time, National History Museums of New York or London used to be a big attraction.

Today’s youngsters just laugh at them, because on Wikipedia & Google,

they have seen & studied most of the objects of their own interests.

What the youngsters want, is not sightseeing , but they want Experience.

Future of the traveled world would be to Experience , to Feel & to do.

People would travel to meet their new friends, At the same time people are getting interested

In knowing different lifestyles, cultures , social systems of people from different regions & different countries.

The Travel would be to know the different people.

Thus , We believe that Travel would take a completely new direction in the next 20-30 years.

Deciding Europe Group Tour from India ?

Europe tour packages

For any common passenger, finalizing & deciding Europe Tour from India is a very confusing  job.

There are many Tour Operators who give catchy advertisements about wife free, child free or similar. There are many who advertise like, Book an Europe vacation & get Singapore or India vacation for free.

Every Tour operator will try to argue for their Itinerary & say ours is the best.

Its so confusing for customers, that he is going from one Tour operator to another comparing Itinerary, Price, Inclusions & we find that everyday his confusions go up.

Followings are the Tips , which can help him decide better & faster.

A)    Nothing is Free in this world:-

Free word is a gimmick used by the Tour operators & customer should sincerely ask questions & go in depth about the free aspects.

In fact , one should give negative marks  to the operator who does the gimmicks of free offers.

B)    Understand the problems of Europe Group Tours :-

There is around 4000 – 5000 kms of travel in Europe Group Tours in about 14-18 days. So we should go for tours which is having less Travel. Per day travel should not be more than 300 kms / per day .

This is the most Important.

C)    Understand the Hotels : –

In normal case in Europe all Tour Operators give hotels, which are around 30 kms from the city centre. Plus the rooms are smaller & no Porter is available. Many operators give exact hotel names and addresses on the last minute.

We believe that ,It is absolutely must to know the names & addresses of Hotels before you are booking the Tour.

D)    Know Restaurants & Food in Detail:-

Breakfasts served in hotels are very basic & practically no Indian items are served in Breakfast. Lunch & Dinner are in Indian Restaurants.

It is imperative for the Traveler to discuss the Meals, Restaurants, Menu Items etc before finalizing the Tour.

E)     Understand what is Caravan :-

In Europe , some local Tour Operators are serving the food in Caravans. Caravan is minivan , in which moving Kitchen is there . This Caravan moves with the Tour & serves Food to passengers . In places like London, Paris, Switzerland Caravan is illegal , so Caravan is not possible. Most important is when using Caravan, lunch is served on the petrol pumps or some parking area. People have to eat food in the paper plates standing on the Petrol pumps. In Europe, Climate is very uncertain, sometimes very cold, Rainy & sometimes hot. It is very difficult to eat outside standing on the road or Petrol pump.

So we definitely believe , Caravan should be avoided. 

F)     Knowing the Sightseeing:-

Understand what sightseeing are included in the Tour. Europe is the center of History, culture & Modern wonders. Make sure that the Tour Operator includes the must & the most important sightseeing of your choice.

We believe that one should focus more on what the tour operator is going to show than anything else.

Above are some Tips which will be very useful to you for finalizing your Europe Tour.

Have a Happy Tour to Europe

Need Europe OR Schengen Visa For Europe Tour from India ?

Europe tour packages

26 European countries have come together & formed a borderless world.

This is called Schengen Union & if you want to travel in these countries, then only one visa is required which is common for all 26 countries – called Schengen visa.

The 26 countries which are included are listed below.

Schengen visa is valid for
Austria Belgium Denmark
Finland France Germany
Greece Iceland Italy
Luxembourg Netherlands Norway
Portugal Italy Sweden
Estonia Latvia Lithuania
Poland Czech Republic Slovakia
Hungary Slovenia Malta
Switzerland Lichtenstein

All above countries have their consulates/embassies office in India. One can apply to any of these countries visas.

Now, most important point is from where you should apply & what the procedures are.

First and foremost you have to form your itinerary & decide which cities & countries you are going to stay.

In case of travel to more than one Schengen country, please submit your application to the Embassy / Consulate where you will be staying for the maximum number of days.

In case of equal stay in two different Schengen countries then, one has to apply at the Schengen country which is the first port of entry.

Please note that holders of a Schengen visa are still subject to immigration control and are not guaranteed entry into any of the Schengen countries, even though they may hold a valid visa for these countries.

The Schengen visa is granted in the form of a sticker affixed on a passport, a travel document or another valid document which entitles the holder to cross the border.

We repeat that  Possession of a Schengen visa does not confer automatic right of entry.

Entry will only be granted if the other conditions laid down by the Schengen Convention are met, i.e. the justification of the purpose and the conditions of the trip and the possession of sufficient funds.

Short Stay Schengen Visa

The short-stay visa is the most common Schengen visa.

It entitles travellers, subject to the visa requirement, to enter the territories of the 26 Schengen States to pay a continuous visit or several visits (depending on the number of entries granted by the consulate), the duration of which does not exceed three months (90 days) in any half-year from the date of first entry in the Schengen area. As an example suppose you want to apply for visas from Italy.

In order to apply for a travel visa at the Embassy of Italy, your only destination or your main destination (longest duration of stay) must be Italy.

In the absence of a main destination (e.g. same duration of stay in two or more countries) you should apply at the country of first entry because your passport will show the entry stamp of your first destination only. Same with other countries.

For visas one need to submit proper itinerary & also most important is your actual hotel bookings. It is must that hotel bookings & all other bookings have to be genuine & consulate verifies the same with the hotel, airlines & other.

We strongly suggest that one should apply for Schengen visas only and only after your tour program is fixed & all your hotel bookings confirmed.

Change in program or hotel bookings can have very adverse effect at the time of entry. Be honest and submit the truth that is the most effective policy.

Many times consulate call for the personal interviews to Delhi/Mumbai or takes interview on phone. So please pick up the phone when it comes from consulate/embassy.

Sometimes consulate give conditional  visas, in that case you have to appear in person, to the consulate/embassy with your passport and arrival/departure boarding pass after you come back from the tour.

It is our observation that consulates are very sympathetic to genuine travellers, and most important is to disclose each and everything very rightly and truthfully to the consulates.

If you speak truth and if your case is genuine then consulates have all the plus feelings for you. There is great rush in the consulates in season time. Applying early with sufficient buffer in time is a very wise policy.

Otherwise it may happen that you may come into hotel, airline cancellations.

Again in the end we reiterate the followings:

  • Follow the truth and have genuine itinerary and bookings
  • Apply early for processing in time

We believe that Schengen visa would not be difficult, if you follow the above.

Have a happy Europe trip!
