Pirate ship

Pirate ship holds of which are full of gold! Childish dreams come true in Disneyland. From the time I was a little kid, I was dreaming about going to Disneyland, but the first time I did it I was 32. When I went there I was not really hoping for something special and was quite skeptical. But I was wrong. Disneyland allowed me to feel like a kid again! It is a great place both for adult and children.

Amazing Fact:

In 2012 Paris Disneyland had about 15.5 million visitors compared to 8.4 million for Paris’ Louvre museum and 6.6 million for the Eiffel Tower.

Sunrise over Singapore

Singapore has the largest port in the world. A huge number of ships are waiting for their turn to come into the port. It seems like this is not a reality, but a computer game. Invading force on many ships is coming to the shore and getting ready to attack. Just about the great battle to begin. The action takes place not on the Earth but on the another planet.

At the centre of the photo you can see the Park “Gardens by the bay”. If you take a look on the left side of the picture you will see The Conservatory Complex.  It comprises two cooled conservatories – the Flower Dome and the Cloud Forest. Very extraordinary human-made sights – strongly recommend to visit if you are going to Singapore.

Amazing Facts:

1. These  conservatories won “World Building of the Year” Award at World Architecture Festival 2012.
2. Flower Dome is the worlds largest glasshouse without columns.

View of Mountain Kinabalu

Mount Kinabalu is the highest point of the island of Borneo. Its height is about 4090 meters. There is a reserve around the mountain that is called Kinabalu national park.  It is located on the west coast of Sabah, Malaysian Borneo. The reserve covers an area of 754 square kilometeres surrounding Mount Kinabalu.

If desired, you can climb to the top with an organised group and see the sunrise. This challenge is not for weak people. Once you reach the peak you will be given a certificate of conquering the top. By the way, Mount Kinabalu had been declared as “World Heritage Site” by UNESCO.

We were very fortunate that the peak of the mountain was pretty clear visible. Our guide said the top of the mountain is almost never seen because of the constant cloud cover. Here it rains regularly throughout the year, so the slopes of the mountains are green and covered with dense vegetation. If you take a look at the centre of the photography you can see a waterfall.

Amazing fact: 

Mount Kinabalu National Park has over 5,000 different species of plants and animals, including 326 bird species and over 100 mammal species. Biologists estimate that the park has a staggering number of plant species—probably between 5,000 and 6,000 species—more than are found in North America and Europe combined.
