Friday, September 19th, 2014

Millions of passengers are flying on aircraft. It’s very hard to find out the best architect among the thousands of airport. Some airports have a special ability to encourage us to look up and around. Here are some of the best airports in terms of design, beauty and atmosphere:

Seoul Incheon Airport, Incheon, South Korea: - Never mind how it looks from the outside: Seoul’s airport regularly gets awarded for how well organized, efficient and relaxing from inside. The most exciting feature of this airport is to you are only few steps away from an entertaining, enlightening and Korean culture. Inside the airport you can find Korean craft workshops, dress up area where you can take photos in traditional clothing, free internet cafes, a museum and plenty of comfortable places to take nap. If you want to try traditional Korean bath house head to the basement.

Singapore Changi International Airport Terminal 3: - You will be surprised to see this airport as you will think it as an amusement park. Singapore’s three terminals are widely considered to be the most fun you can have in an airport, and each one has its own attractions. Terminal 3 is the newest with “an automatic light modulation system” to give the whole place a soothing. Terminal 3 is home to Changi’s butterfly garden, an 18-foot waterfall, a huge indoor playground, a movie theater, TV lounges and the “Slide@T3,” a four-story spiral slide that’s a lot more fun than taking the elevator. The other terminals join in the theme of combining indoor and outdoor spaces, with more gardens and even an outdoor swimming pool available to the public.

Singapore-Changi-International-Airport-Terminal-3



Jeddah Hajj Terminal, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia: - One of the world’s most radical airport terminals, it is only active during the “Hajj” a religiously mandated pilgrimage to Mecca for Muslims. During the six week period, it is one of the busiest airport terminals in the world. Formed by an array of gigantic tents aligned in the most orderly fashion, this is one the most unexpected airport terminals. It’s made of 210 open air white fiberglass tents which create a use like chimney that can cool the hot desert air by 50 degree without any cost. The tent has capacity of 80,000 people space. No other airline terminal has this unique feature.

Jeddah-Hajj-Terminal-Jeddah-Saudi-Arabia



Chek Lap Kok Terminal 1, Hong Kong: - The beauty of this airport can be attributed by its extraordinary functionality. The huge, airy and elegant airport was built in 1997 by Foster and Partners. Chep Lap Kok is characterized by lightweight steel and glass roofs, clear passenger routes, carefully modulated daylight, commanding views out to the aircraft and a vast central “market square”.

Chek-Lap-Kok-Terminal-1-Hong-Kong



Dammam King Fahd International Airport, Dammam, Saudi Arabia: - Dammam is one of the oil rich cities on earth. And its airport is world’s largest airport and is based on the land it occupies. The airport was planned by the Japanese architect Yamasaki and Associates starting in 1976, the airport was opened for full commercial operation in 1999. And during the first Gulf War, it had served as a military base. It is 50kms from Dammam and reached by a road though a desert of camels, Bedouin tents and other scenes from traditional Arabian life. A lavish royal terminal here is rarely used and on the whole this enormous airport seems remarkably quiet.

Dammam-King-Fahd-International-Airport-Dammam-Saudi-Arabia



Wellington Airport “Rock” Terminal, Wellington, New Zealand: - Many people called this the world’s ugliest airport terminal. But there is a reason the new international terminal in Willington has won many awards. The Rock is a pair of egg shaped buildings opened in last year covered in copper planting that’s designed to turn blue green in the sea air. Inside airport curving corners and geometric panels play peekaboo, also the passengers capacity is almost double from the previous terminal into the same space without feeling crowded.

Wellington-Airport



JFK Terminal 5, New York, New York: - JFK is one of the greatest icons of the mid-20th Century. This terminal has been best airport food court in New York. In this airport you can Airtarin ride up to the home of “Catch Me If You Can” glamour followed by a smooth walk through a spacious, modern terminal. There is still one missing piece: you can’t walk into the Saarinen terminal main hall, as New York Authority has dragged its feet for years on finding a tenant for the space. The authority is actually trying to interest boutique hotelier, but the idea is not even planned yet.

JFK-Terminal-5,-New-York-New-York



Marrakech Menara Airport Terminal 1, Marrakech, Morocco: - This is the perfect example of culturally aware terminal design. The new Terminal 1 at Marrakech’s airport looks like a Moroccan palace 21st-century style, with classic Islamic geometric and nature motifs inscribed into a giant network of concrete diamonds. You could make a strong argument that the whole thing is one giant artwork. At night, colored lights dance along the front face of the building, illuminating the desert plantings along the arrivals roadway. A lounge inside evokes 19th-century Moroccan luxury, with rugs, chandeliers, and a wrought-metal dome.

So, not only these airports are beautiful but also the cities are. So, you can plan to visit these beautiful airports along with the amazing cities.

World’s Top Greatest Ancient Ruins


Thursday, September 11th, 2014

The Ancient ruins give us a connection to the past. Here are world’s greatest and famous ruins that attract millions of visitors every year:

Great Wall, Badaling, China: - The Great Wall is greatest wonder of the world and was listed as a World Heritage by UNESCO in 1987. It stretches for 5,500 miles across China. This point is easily accessible with 70 miles of Beijing. What is visible today was built during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), and the construction began on various sections as far back as 770 B.C. And the credit of the construction goes to the million slaves and prisoners of war who carried blocks of granite, bricks, and stones at the top.

Great-Wall-Badaling-China



Colosseum, Rome: - The Colosseum was commissioned around A.D. 70-72 by Emperor Vespasian of the Flavian dynasty as a gift to the Roman people. And was completed in A.D. 80, the arena held 50,000 spectators who watched mythology based dramas and reenactments of land and sea battles as well as executions, fights-to-the-death among gladiators, and the ghastly slaughter of wild animals.

Colosseum-Rome



Roman Forum, Rome: - The Roman Forum was the central area of the city around which ancient Rome developed. This is 700 yard long piazza has been both marketplace and government center. The social center of Rome for 1,200 years beginning in the fifth century B.C., this 700 yard long piazza has been both marketplace and government center. The main sight of the Forum includes the Arch of Titus, the Temple of Saturn, Temple of Vesta, and the church of San Luca e Martina. These are all linked by the Sacra Via the main road through the Forum.

Roman-Forum-Rome



Pyramids of Giza, Egypt: - As one of the original Seven Wonders of the World and certainly the symbol of Egypt, the Pyramids have venerability cred going back 4,500 years. Yet we still don’t know for sure how the ancient Egyptians built them, which only adds to their intriguing appeal to travelers. The three major tombs for pharaohs at this UNESCO World Heritage Site are now surrounded on three sides by the pressures of Cairo, a city teeming with nearly 11 million people.

Pyramids-of-Giza-Egypt



Acropolis, Athens: - A seemingly intact temple to the goddess Athena that’s the symbol of both Classical Greece and the origins of democracy. Built in the fifth century B.C., the Parthenon has lost many of its friezes and marble sculptures to plundering for European museums—with sporadic negotiations to try to get them back.

Acropolis-Athens



Efes (Ephesus), Turkey: - Thirty years ago Ephesus was a nearly forgotten Roman ruin in an area of sparsely populated Turkish villages. Now much of the local economy is driven by it. The library and other buildings have been restored to give a sense of this large city 2,000 years ago, and concerts are still held in the 25,000-seat theater. Carved into a block in the marble road is what is believed to be an advertisement for a brothel.

Efes-Turkey



Teotihuacan, Mexico: - The terraced Pyramids of the Sun and Moon dominate the ancient plaza of this sacred city built between the first and seventh centuries. At 250 yards on a side and 200 feet tall, the Pyramid of the Sun is the third largest pyramid in the world. But the Temple of Quetzalcoatl is more decorated—dedicated to the plumed serpent god that figures prominently in its sculptures and reliefs.

Teotihuacan-Mexico



Hierapolis, Turkey: - The brilliant white terraced pools of the Pamukkale “cotton palace” hot springs attract many people to this area every year. Built just above the half mile wide 65 foot tall travertine wonder in 190 B.C., this ancient “spa town” has ruins of temples, a well-preserved theater and a Sacred Pool where visitors float above broken Roman columns.

Hierapolis-Turkey



Chichen Itza, Yucatan, Mexico: - The s1tepped pyramids, temples, columned arcades and other stone structures of Chichen Itza were sacred to the Maya and a sophisticated urban center of their empire from A.D. 750 to 1200. Mayans began construction in the seventh century and Toltecs who arrived three centuries later. Large plumed-serpent-head statues of Kukulcan or Quetzalcoatl fill the site, which is about 125 miles from Mérida, Cancun, and Riviera Maya on the Caribbean coast.

Chichen-Itza-Yucatan-Mexico



Ellora Caves, India: - Ellora is an archaeological site in the Indian state of Maharashtra built by the Rashtrakuta dynasty. Ellora also called Verula or Elura, is the cave form of Ancient name Elapura. Ellora is known for Hindu, Buddhist and Jain cave temples built during 6th and 9th centuries. Rather than actual caves, many are carved out rock buildings filled with thousands of intricate reliefs and sculptures.
