Is Dubai Safe for Women Traveler?

Dubai tour packages

Apart from all the impressive sky scrapers and unimaginable architectures and interiors, during my whole Vacation Tour To Dubai the thing that did create strong impression on my mind and heart was safety I experienced as a female tourist. I had hailed a cab post-midnight to Diera City Mall for shopping and reached back to my hotel safely accompanies by interesting conversations with a friendly cabbie driver. All the cab drivers were friendly and would share details about their origins and personal reasons of relocating themselves for work at Dubai. Not even for a second I felt unsafe while I was either travelling though the well developed Metros, cabs or streets of Dubai.No wonder the malls were full of women enjoying their shopping during the late hours!

Moreover it is not uncommon to see women coming back home from work really late. Nobody will give you a second look, nobody will try to follow you, make passes at you, hassle you with lewd comments.

Dubai tours

The girls can be themselves, wear modern clothes and travel all over Dubai with not stress looming in their minds “oh I am a girl, what if something will go wrong while I am alone out of my house!”

Does this mean crime against women does not exist in Dubai?

The answer will be no. With about 120 nationalities living together in a metropolis it is inevitable crime will exist and one gets to read about sexual crimes against women in the newspapers often. Dubai is also fighting human trafficking and domestic violence is also one of the issues here. But the rate of crime is much lower in Dubai compared to other cities.

Police has a major role to play

Dubai packages

The police here provides an amazing safety net for women by efficiently patrolling the city 24×7. Be sure to spot a Dubai Police patrol wherever you go. If a woman dials 999 for help they will be there in two minutes. And most importantly the Dubai police force command respect and fear among the people for their commitment.

Dubai tour packages from Mumbai

Another thing that keeps women in Dubai safe is the inevitability of punishment. There is no escaping. When a British woman was raped and kidnapped by three men last July 2012, they were eventually caught and in eight months the verdict was out and they are now in jail. Justice is delivered quickly and efficiently.

The other day a friend asked, “What is it you will miss about Dubai when you came back to Ahmedabad?” My instant reply was, “I will miss venturing out of my hotel room, even at unearthly hours, without a care in the world.”

Dubai tours from Ahmedabad

Surely, in 10 years Dubai has achieved a lot. It has unique balance of religious values as well as modernism.

Vacation Tour to Bali from Gujarat- From my Eyes – “The Ultimate Island”

Bali is known as the “Island of a Thousand Puras”, or “Island of the Gods. The mere mention of ‘Bali‘ evokes thoughts of a paradise. It’s more than a place; it’s a mood, an aspiration, a tropical state of mind.   Bali is renowned for its diverse and sophisticated art forms, such as painting, sculpture, woodcarving, handcrafts, and performing arts.

Though Bali is Muslim country, it has 85% population of Hindus. It is well known throughout the world for its unique Hindu culture, the splendor of its ritual arts, and the charm of its friendly people. Bali is also called as an island of thousands temples. Temples are spread all over the island from a very simple to elaborate ones. In every family compound they have a family temple as a place to renewing contact with holy ancestors, and in each village there are three temples, which are dedicated to the Trinity Gods (Brahma, Wisnu, Siwa) such as,

Pura Desa is the temple to honor the God in his manifestation as Dewa Brahma – the creator.

Pura Puseh is for honoring the manifestation as Dewa Wisnu – the protector.

Pura Dalem is dedicated to the Dewa Siwa – The Destroyer.

Split stay in Bali in Nusa Dua, Ubud and Kuta/Seminyak offered me to experience beach activities, rain forest feel, night life and shopping.

Nusa Dua – famous for its beautiful beach

Nusa Dua means two islands. Nusa Dua is home to the most popular its Luxurious Hotels, Golf course in Bali and the main convention centre on the island.  Hotels like Melia Bali, Nusa Dua Beach Resort, Grand Hyatt, Nikko Bali and many more offer various activities like snorkeling, surfing n all water sports like banana boat, parasailing, fish fly, water scooter n many on white sand beach. My stay at Melia Bali was just amazing

Kuta – Famous for Its Nightlife

Ubud is popular among tourists because of this location lies between the rice fields and forest that lies between the mountain ravines that create a very beautiful nature. Many hotels in Ubud like Kupu Kupu, Komenika and Bali Rich offers different style of villas where we feel like we are staying in between mountain n river n if we keep mobile off, we can truly forget the world.

Exquisite Beauty of Oman – Oman Tour Packages from Gujarat

I was very upbeat to visit this country from what I had heard. The reason being it was said that it is opposite of Dubai. No tall buildings, no high rise apartment or office complexes. Not the glittery lights or the fast pace of city no tensions on the face of people. But still rated the most improved nation in the last 40 years, a high income economy and one of the most peaceful countries in the world.

An interesting contrast wouldn’t you agree?

Oman capital city muscat is spread out among various hills and valleys. As soon as one enters from the eastern side crossing the Arabian sea one is delighted to see the mountains rising from the ocean bed.

Oman tour packages

Sur, Oman

Beautiful coves,few houses nestled   in the valleys between these coves surrounded by mountains on one side and the sea on the other. Hotels located in these coves make beautiful locations for privacy and quiet solitude for getting away from the bustle of city life.

It has a very glorious past much older than the  other arabic countries. It was a very powerful trading country in the Arabian sea and Indian ocean and covered within it’s boundaries the Island of Zanzibar off the Tanzania coast, UAE, Baluchistan, part of Saudi Arabia and Yemen etc. It had trade relations with Kerala and the eastern coast since many years.

Their present king sultan  Qaboos Bin Said Al Said is highly respected and dearly loved by the people. He came to power in  1970 after sending his father the king in power to his retirement .He is responsible for bringing about the opening of the country to the world ,social changes and women education which is responsible for the biggest growth rate for any society in the last 40 years.He had studied in Pune and London.

It has very good relations with India and many of the kings trusted people in government are Indian origin. One of the big Indian businessman is Khimjibhai who is nicknamed the only Indian sheikh of Oman.

Though it has joined the first world link it’s well rooted in it’s culture. The city though developed  has retained it’s identity and architectural differences. The grand mosque  is a great architectural  marvel. It is one of the most liberal of the Arabic nations.

It’s most  unique features are,
1) Turtle  beaches, Turtles in their most natural habitat come to lay eggs on it’s shores .
The area is well protected and this cycle has been repeating uninterrupted for many many years.we were able to enjoy and etch in our memory this process
in the life of a turtle in one of the most natural of environment possible today on this earth. In the season you can find even more than 100 turtles at a time on it’s beaches.

2) The wadis are to be seen to be believed .straight scenery copied from the Arabian nights stories.These are river beds with greenery and water pools surrounded by rocky mountains. During rains these rivers get flooded as the mountain soil does not retain or absorb water.

Oman tours

Wadi Shab, Oman

3) The desert experience
to stay under the starry nights with only sand and silence surrounding you was again a very Arabic experience close to nature.
The more adventurous can stay for 10to15days camping in the deserts like the bedouins. Land cruiser trips on this long trips can be a reality for the dreamers and adventure lovers.

4) The mountain of HAJJAR just 3 hours drive from muscat are surrounded by spectacular scenery and are called the grand canyon of the east.

5) Salala which lies to the south of the country is a tourist paradise during the monsoon months of July, August and September. The whole area becomes similar to a rain forest.

Oman Packages

Salalah Beach

6) Beauty of Oman is in it’s mountains which are multi colored multi shaped .multi formations, it’s mountains are sandstone and does not retain any water so are without any grass or vegetation. The well formed out roads in this multi colored mountain area with peeks of the seas and wadis make for spectacular scenery.

It was constructed between 1931 and 1936 during the Great Depression and was dedicated on September 30, 1935, by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Its construction was the result of a massive effort involving thousands of workers, and cost over one hundred lives. The dam was controversially named after President Herbert Hoover.

Europe tour packages from Mumbai

Such a large concrete structure had never been built before, and some of the techniques were unproven.  Six Companies turned over the dam to the federal government on March 1, 1936, more than two years ahead of schedule.

USA tour packages from Ahmedabad

Panama Canal that connects Pacific Ocean with Atlantic OceanPanama Canal

France began work on the canal in 1881, but had to stop because of engineering problems and high mortality due to disease. The United States took over the project in 1904, and took a decade to complete the canal, which was officially opened on August 15, 1914. One of the largest and most difficult engineering projects ever undertaken.

Today, the canal continues to be not only a viable commercial venture, but also a vital link in world shipping.

The chart, reproduced from The Economist, shows betting revenues in the top gambling destination worldwide.

USA tour packages from Mumbai

 

Macau is ahead on revenue by a considerable distance and easily tops list for dollars spent per visitor.

 

Macau money: This chart – taken from The Economist – shows how much more revenue Macau makes compared to Las Vegas.

 

On average, gamblers lay down $1,354 in Macau casinos compared to just $156 in Las Vegas.

 

 

The reason for this is the coming together of two factors – the rapid expansion of China’s wealthy middle and moneyed classes, and that country’s insatiable appetite for a flutter. Macau is the only part of the vast country in which gambling is legal. Macau is known worldwide as “Monte Carlo of Orient” as the economy relies heavily on gambling.

 

Between 2008 and 2012, Macau’s gambling revenues grew by a whopping 29 %  a year on average.

 

Macau is predicted by experts to become the first $100billion gambling market thanks to improved links to the Chinese mainland – including a planned 30 mile road bridge connecting it to it’s sister Hong Kong – as well as capacity expansion at border-control to reduce waiting times to enter.

 

Macau has 33 casinos of which biggest is Venetian Macau.

TIME FOR INDIAN RENAISSANCE – Europe Tour Packages from Gujarat

Europe tour packages

Renaissance, the Silent Revolution of 15th Century in Europe, changed the destiny of Europe and the world in last 500 years.

New discoveries in science, new voyages in travel, new creations in arts, new medicines and the most importantly new ways of thinking, reasoning and logic conquered the European society which was dominated by dogmas and blind faiths.

Europe which was passing through 1000 years dark age from 400 -1400 AD emerged as the center of the earth, as the economic military and artistic powerhouse which ruled almost whole of the world for next 400 -500 years.

Which are the contributions of the Renaissance to the world? Which new inventions were inspired by the Renaissance? 

The most notable changes experienced during the Renaissance were in the fields of art and architecture, literature, philosophy and science.

The reasons prevailed and new trends and fresh styles emerged.

1) Michelangelo, painted the ceiling of Sistine Chapel with naked bodies of humans. Those ideas proved to be offence to the church.

Europe holiday tours

The last judgement is a canonical fresco by the Italian Renaissance master Michaelangelo executed on the altar wall of the Sistine Chapel in Vatican city. The work took 4 years to complete and was done between 1536 and 1541.

2) Leonardo Da Vinci, contributed with many famous works like The Mona Lisa painting, The Last Supper and many more.He had also thought of the flying machine, in 1485.

3) Nicholas Copernicus gave the first map of Solar system with Sun at its center.

4) Charles Darwin gave the theory of Evolution.

5) In 15th Century, when people lost their confidence in the Catholic Church due to corruption, then Martin Luther gave shape to a movement called protestant movement which exposed the corruption of catholic churches.

6) During this period many sailors and explorers set out to find a sea route to the East.

7) In 1498, Vasco Da Gama made his way to India through the Cape of Good Hope on the southern tip of Africa.

Europe tours

The phases of Venus, observed by Galileo in 1610.

8) Galileo has played a major role in Scientific Revolution. He is famous as “father of modern observational astronomy” the “father of modern physics”, the “father of science”. The phases of Venus, observed by Galileo in 1610.

9) William Shakespeare was a great poet and known as the England’s national poet and the “Bard of Avon”.Shakespeare produced most of his known work between 1589 and 1613.

The above is history of European Renaissance.

Now the question arises in our minds, whether there will be an Indian Renaissance ever? Last many centuries we have been living under poverty, cast conflicts, blind faiths and religious dogmas. Will we ever have chance to have Indian Renaissance? Will we ever emerge as the powerhouse of the world? Do we really have potential to be a developed country? These are the questions which surely arise in every Indian’s mind. India has very powerful history. To name a few, Arya Bhatt has given “0”, Charaka has given Ayurveda to the world. But, if we look closely into our history of last 1500 years we will realize that we have made almost no contribution for betterment of mankind nor have we made any new inventions for the word.  Indian Civilization was the most respected throughout the world before 1500-2000 years. But sadly we have not made any significant progress in economy or discovery in last 1500 years.

We strongly believe that time of India has come back now. With such a huge dynamic young population, so many great minds are aligned to software development and creating computer power. We believe that time of India has come back now. With such a huge dynamic population, so many great minds are aligned to software development and creating computer power.

We believe that future belongs to the Indians. We are opening platform for discussion here. We believe that India Renaissance has started; We want our readers to contribute here whether they believe that Indian Renaissance has started???????????

AVIATION 2050 – Aviation Information from Tour Operator in Gujarat

Tour packages

Next 35-40 years will completely revolutionize the Aircraft Technology. Aviation is going to change the living of the people and especially the ways they travel.

Computer and Telecom experts are saying that share of the business travel is just going to go to a negligible percentage. The reason is, that telecommunications, video conferencing is going to be so powerful that it would be no more required for anyone to go for meeting a business associates, partners, suppliers or buyers, overseas. It would be possible to have video chat on telecom. The video chat systems would be so perfect that two persons sitting across 5000 miles would chat with each other as if they are just sitting across 5 feet from each other. Then question arises, who will travel?

As per the Airbus, the travel will be more for pleasure, leisure, sightseeings, vacations, relaxations and meeting relatives and friends. In the above case Airline Companies believe that air travel has to be a great fun and experience, as luxury cruise liners or luxury trains.

Domestic tour packages

Airbus A390 Model

The future aircrafts are going following ways:

1. Fuel Effiency: Today A380 and Boeing Dreamliners consume 40% less fuel than the traditional aircrafts.

Use of electricity and solar energy will be more in coming days.

2. Lighter Aircrafts: With composites of plastics, carbon steel and many lighter aircrafts are being developed.

Boeing 787 and Airbus 350 are examples of that.

3. Higher Speed: Today we are having 0.8 x sound speed.

By 2050, aircrafts will be flying 3 x sound speeds.That will mean Paris to Tokyo in 3.5 hours.

4. Luxury Aircrafts: The aircrafts will have casinos, swimming pools and many entertainment facilities on board.

Draft Plane of the German Aerospace Center

It’s the right shape and form that helps save fuel. This draft plane of the German Aerospace Center blends cabin with wings to create a “blended-wing body.” This reduces resistance and the cabin itself becomes part of the wings

Back To The Biplane

Holiday tour packages

The “Boxwing” by Lufthansa

The “Boxwing” by Lufthansa has huge open propellers and extremely long and thin wings like a glider. As the wings of biplanes are shaped like an arrow, the plane is efficient and fast. The wings though remain short enough for the plane to dock at normal airports.

It is about speed

Domestic tour packages

The “Spaceliner” by the German Aviation Center

For those always in a hurry, there are other options. The “Spaceliner” by the German Aviation Center is a suborbital, hypersonic winged passenger plane with rocket engines. By 2050 it might be able to take you from Europe to Australia in a mere 90 minutes.

We believe that Airtravel would be a different experience in next 30 years. Airbus has projected that the cost of Air Travel will be so low and so reasonable that every common man will afford to travel.

Projections are that, total half of the world’s population will have Air Travel experience by 2050.

We want our users comment on how they would feel for this new way of travel.

To have your travel plan without a Travel Agent or Tour Operator means,
“ Making a House without an Architect “
“ Fighting a Court Case without Lawyer”
“ Organising big event without event manager”
“ Getting treated medically without qualified doctors”
