Where In the World?

Where in the world is this stunning river and mountain view?

If the river pictured for Where in the World nine is on your bucket list, you may already be familiar with its name. You may even know the name of the country where this photo was taken if you also recognize the mountains in the background. If not, below are some clues to help you figure it out.

Feel free to comment with the number of clues you needed. If you’re really stuck, you can click the photo to find out.

Clue 1: This breathtaking scene was captured in a country that has been off most people’s travel bucket list for a while. However, following the recent lifting of travel restrictions and relaxing of tourism boycotts, travellers can now visit this country. So if you have guessed where it is, you can put it on your travel bucket list.

Clue 2: The country where this particular fishing boat scene was shot is filled with stunning Buddhist monuments, beautiful Southeast Asian countryside, and a capital city that has yet to be spoilt by tourism.

Clue 3: This river is the 12th longest river in the world and is also the border between several Asian countries. A cruise along this river will take you to at least two of these Asian wonders. Have you got it yet, without Googling?

Clue 4: The country in which this photo was taken changed its name in 1989. You may be more familiar with its former name and the cats that originate from the region close to its borders with one other Asian nation. No Googling!

Have the clues helped you to figure out the river’s name and in which country the photographer took this picture (without Googling)? Have you now put the river and/or a visit to this country on your travel bucket list? Feel free to comment to let me know.

PS: As an agent of change, I can help you experience a cruise along this river in one or more of the countries it borders. Or if you are looking for a unique, off-the-beaten-path adventure in the country where this photo was taken, or any of the other Asian countries it borders, there are several options to choose from. No matter which you choose, you’ll have a fully immersive experience in Asia while helping the local economy.

My 4 favourite Hawaii beaches

The Hawaii Islands have hundreds of breathtaking beaches. They range from white sand to black with every shade of yellow in between. You’ll even find red sand and green sand beaches. Although I’ve obviously not visited every Hawaii beach (wouldn’t that be amazing), it’s still hard to choose a favourite from the ones I have. But I’ve managed to narrow it down to 4 off-the-beaten path Hawaii beaches, one on each island that I’ve visited.

Favourite experience on my one-day Iceland stopover

On a recent one-day Iceland stopover, I rented a car and toured the Reykjanes Peninsula. One of two solo trips to Iceland in less than a month, I had created an itinerary of all the sights I wanted to see. The recently active Fagradalsfjall volcano, in the Geldingadalur Valley, was one of the main sights I wanted to see. What I didn’t expect was for it to become the highlight of my Reykjanes Peninsula tour and my favourite experience on my one-day Iceland stopover.
