denali national park

The home of the tallest mountain in North America, Denali National Park – named after the 6,190-metre (20,310-foot) peak – is a semi-Arctic wilderness roughly the same size as the entire land area of Massachusetts. Visitors with keen eyes are likely to see grizzly bears, caribou and moose. Those with luck on their side might spot wolves, black bears and wolverines. Considering its vast size, almost 20,000 square kilometres (7,700 square miles), Denali National Park contains only one road with a handful of destinations marked by mileposts. Private motorists can go as far as the Savage River Trailhead at mile 15 before being turned around, but most visitors stop at the Wilderness Access Center at the start of the road to buy a ticket for the buses that travel its full 146-kilometre…

cliffs of moher

The trek to the Cliffs of Moher in County Clare on the western coast of Ireland takes the traveller to one of the world’s most inspiring places. Through millions of years, as the green countryside meets the pounding surf of the Atlantic Ocean, nature has carved a breathtaking panorama of sheer rock and seemingly endless seas stretching to the limitless horizon. The cliffs are named after an old fortress known as Mothar, or Moher, that once dominated their southern reaches. They soar 214 metres (702 feet), while extending eight kilometres (five miles) along the coast at the southwestern edge of Ireland’s Burren region, from Hag’s Head in the south to beyond O’Brien’s Tower in the north. The tower, built in 1835 by Sir Cornelius O’Brien, is a familiar man-made landmark, constructed…

the pyramids of giza

The Seven Wonders of the Ancient World were a group of remarkable manmade structures compiled by the Ancient Greek historian Herodotus that represented the most incredible feats of engineering and beauty in the civilised world. Of those seven, only the Great Pyramid of Giza still exists – so how can you turn down the opportunity to visit the last standing miracle that impressed even the Ancient Greeks? Built around 2,500 BCE, there are six pyramids in the complex – with the biggest and most impressive built as a tomb for the Fourth Dynasty Pharaoh Khufu. This pyramid measured an incredible 147 metres (481 feet) tall when it was built, although unfortunately the top has been lost, but it’s still a mightily impressive 137 metres (451 feet) tall. The second-tallest pyramid is the…

mandalay

One of the world’s most storied and celebrated cities, Mandalay glistens in the emerald countryside of upper Myanmar, previously known as the nation of Burma. The commercial and economic centre of the region that also bears its name, Mandalay is a striking contrast of culture, religion, cuisine and natural beauty. The romance of Mandalay emerged in the West thanks largely to Rudyard Kipling’s famous poem Road to Mandalay, and for centuries its mystique has drawn visitors to the plateau along the banks of the mighty Irrawaddy River. Natural beauty abounds amid lush jungle. Visitors indulge in nightlife and fantastic fare in some of the world’s greatest restaurants, and take in breathtaking architecture related to the region’s Buddhist heritage. Once the royal city of the kingdom of Burma prior to British colonisation, Mandalay…

sydney

Why settle for having to choose between a city break and a beach holiday when you can enjoy both? Sydney’s bustling centre offers a diverse variety of cultural attractions, with a choice of stunning golden beaches just a stone’s throw away. It’s not difficult to see why more than ten million tourists visit Australia’s largest city every year. One of the best ways to get acquainted with Sydney is to take a walking tour. The I’m Free Walking Tours are led by local guides (easily spotted in their bright-green shirts) who explain the stories behind the city’s major sights, and can give you plenty of tips on where to visit, eat and drink during your stay. Although the tours are free, be sure to tip your guide at the end. Think of…

thai islands

Tropical karsts rising from the glistening sea; pure white sand slipping through toes; the chanting of monasteries – Thailand’s islands are the archetypes of tropical paradise. 53 The country’s largest isle is Phuket, a former trading post called Jung Ceylon – locally known as Thalang, now the name of its main northern town. However, the island, set in the southern Andaman Sea, is not quite untouched. In the 18th century, it successfully defended its tin mines, fending off a Burmese invasion. Soon after, Chinese, Arab, Indian and Portuguese businessmen began migrating, adding a little spice to the local melting pot. Those seeking solace will be best appeased in the island’s north – a wildlife haven. Sirinat National Park combines coniferous forest, coral reef and 13 kilometres (eight miles) of white sandy beach.…
