I often save the air tickets of every trip I have taken with my friends and family. Sometimes, when looking at each of them, I feel like all the emotion and memories are kept inside the small piece of paper.
In my latest journey, my companions were the two little kids, Amy and Alex, travelling with their mother. It was amazing as I as was able to stay awake for hours during the flight, eagerly listening to the adventures of these little travelers. Among their stories, the one about globe impressed me the most. When they were asking their mom where they will go the next time, she just gave them the small globe, smiled, and let Amy point at one of the place on it. Amy and Alex were so excited, screaming with glee when their mom told them about the next place. The kids together made a plan to save money, and prepare for their next trip. From time to time, the family had traveled around the world with that globe. They showed me that no matter where we go, one should plan their voyage with love so as to make every trip into an exciting page of life’s book. The book of my life is marked with the air tickets I have collected over the years and the memories attached to each of them.
It has been said that life is a journey, not a destination. The purpose then, is to travel to new places, experience and learn new things, relax after working days, or to find yourself, your passion and love. Have you got your next journey planned?

Haruki Murakami's

New Book To Be

Released

The book's publisher, Shinchosha

Publishing Co., has announced

that the new novel by Haruki

Murakami will officially be released

this February. Recently when the

67 years old writer received the

Hans Christian Andersen award

in Denmark, he only described

his new work as a very strange

story. The new novel named

Kishidancho Goroshi (Killing

Commendatore) consists of two

parts - Emerging Ideas and Moving

Metaphor.

Born in 1949, Haruki Murakami

began writing while running a

jazz bar in Tokyo after finishing

university. His 1987 romantic

novel Norwegian Wood was his

first best-seller, establishing him

as a young literary star. After the

success of his million-copy-seller

1Q84, his most recent works have

included Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki

and His Years of Pilgrimage and a

collection of short stories, Men

Without Women.

Music of Communal Temples

"Nhπc cÒa Æ◊nh" (music of communal temples) is a Vietnamese folk music night enriched with the

songs from village festivals that were previously held in communal temples. During the music

filled night, several forms of ancient songs (h∏t cˆa Æ◊nh, h∏t d∆m, h∏t v›, h∏t s»m) and theatrical

plays (tuÂng - chÃo) are performed on the stage of L'Espace, the French cultural center in Hanoi.

With folk music, traditional lyrics, and ancient plays, you will feel the sophistication and liberation

of North Vietnam's culture and the spirit of festivals directly from traditional communal houses.

The "Magic"

OF WAGASHI CAKES

Although its history dates to 300 BC, making Wagashi (*) wasn't considered

art until 1867. In 1926, Wagashi was officially named and differentiated from

confectioneries that were introduced from the West.

Text: Que Lan - Photos: Various photographers

Wagashi is a

compound word

in which "wa"

is a word used

to denote anything Japanese

or {the harmony} and

{gashi} sounds like {kashi} -

traditional Japanese sweets.

Not only denoting Japanese

confectioneries, Wagashi

also means the sweetness

of harmony. Wagashi cakes

are served in Japanese tea

ceremonies to increase the

light fragrance and not too

bitter taste of matcha.

The artisans' ingenuity is the

magic to turn pretty cakes

into true works of art. The

harmony in ingredients,

tastes, colors, sweetness,

and ductility, all together

make the cakes special. The

main ingredients include

red beans, green beans,

white beans, seaweed

jelly, and sugar. The most

important and difficult stage

is preparing the bean filling.

It takes about 3-4 days to soak

the beans in water, remove

their hulls, stew, filter,

marsh, and process them

with mochi rice. Throughout

the same time the Wagashi is

prepared.

To shape the cakes, the chef

uses various hand tools such

as sieves made of wood and

rattan to make stems, clippers

to trip beautiful sharp petals,

cloths to create smooth soft

folds on the cake, as well as

cake molds and other shaping

tools. Simple kitchenware

such as chopsticks or spoon

can also be used to create

small details and make

Wagashi sophisticated.

Thanks to the passion

and creativity of artisans,

hundreds of types of Wagashi

have been developed. Among

them is Namagashi which is

not only favored for its eyecatching

designs based on

the four seasons' beauty, but

also because it represents the

signature colors of Japan. Its

crust is made with steamed

glutinous flour while the

filling is often made of red

beans. One of the crucial

ingredients contributing to

Namagashi's sweetness is

wasambon, a special type of

sugar made from sugarcane

found in the Tokushima

region of Japan. Namagashi

is usually in the shape of

natural things such as cherry

blossoms, apricot flowers,

maple leaves, or snowflakes.

In Namagashi, the nature is

lively, beautiful, and special

linked to the identity of

Japan.

To enjoy Namagashi, you

should use a bamboo skewer

to cut the cake instead of

using hands directly. Unlike

Vietnamese who often

cut cake into 4 pieces, the

Japanese avoid number 4

(which sounds like death)

by cutting a half of the cake

to eat first and finish the

other half later. Although it

takes a lot of time to prepare

wagashi, you are advised to

enjoy them within one day to

best enjoy their taste and the

love that the artisans give you

through the cakes.

It is believed that the first fried dish in the world was prepared in the

small kitchen of an ancient Egyptian in about 2500 BC during the

first "golden time" of Nile River Civilization.

Text: Pan Banana - Photos: various photographers

AAt that time, frying was a great invention. By

frying food at different temperatures, the rich and crispy taste of the dish is

could be varied. The ancient people could also burn the surface of the food while

making it like caramel inside. By deep-frying in oil, they could preserve food for

a longer time. This practice of deep frying is still true now. For example, potato

chips and instant noodles are fried before packaged.

In the Middle Ages in Europe, a caring wife should know how to fry cheeses,

including fried curds, fried halloumi, smazeny syr, and queso frito. In the past,

every Parisian housewife would learn by heart Le Mänagier de Paris - the book

providing everything about how to be a great wife, from how to be better in bed

to gardening, to frying delicious Muenster cheese. The renowned Mozzarella

cheese sticks also dates back to this period when a French husband tried to

show his 15-years-old wife how to fry cheese.

Nowadays, it's widely known that eating an excess of fried food can lead to

obesity and other health complications. Therefore, people often seek to reduce

potato chips, fried chicken, fried onion, and other fried dishes from their diets.

But delicious food is irresistible! Few people can turn down the attraction of

fried dishes. Fried cuisine such as Ika Geso Age from Japan or fried squid from

Vietnam still ranks top in Asia's most attractive snacks. In Southeast Asia, fried

banana is certainly a signature dish. If you have a chance to visit Malaysia, don't

forget to enjoy yellow Goreng Pisang (made of bananas covered in batter and

deep fried in hot oil). They don't press the bananas flat before cooking but rather

fry the whole banana, making the food more aromatic and delicious.

Many people think that it's so easy to fry food. But this "easy task" is

sophisticated too. There are various recipes from deep fry, and shallow fry, to

sautä, pan fry, skillet fry, and stir fry. Sautäing and stir-frying require the chef

to invert or flip the food more frequently as the food is fried in a hot pan with

little oil. While deep-frying food, one must remember to wait until the oil is

boiling hot. There is a trick to check the readiness of such frying oil, specifically

by dipping a bamboo chopstick into the oil. When foam appears around the

chopstick, you can start deep frying food.

February is the month of love. Instead of gifting your loved a bouquet of flowers

or a surprise present, why don't you cook her or him a delicious fried dish?

which is home to the white sand Bai Dai

beach, turquoise waters, and an array of

fish, clams, oysters, and snails. Located

right on the beautiful Bai Dai, The Anam

Resort is a destination for meeting friendly

area. There are male receptionists with cute

accents of three regions of Vietnam, and a

caring waitress who always welcome travelers

with a lovely smile.

The highlights of the Anam not only lie

in its unique 19 th century Southeast Asia

design but also come from its concept of

"Sweet Dreams µ la carte" offering guests the

Pink roads of apricot blossoms

Similar to the pink roads of vivid cherry in Japan, this season in

Dalat shows scenery covered with the color of cherry-like apricot

blossoms. The petals are everywhere, from main roads in the city

center such as Tran Hung Dao, Le Dai Hanh, Le Hong Phong,

and Trieu Viet Vuong to villas and resident houses as well as

Tuyen Lam Lake and Ta Nung Commune, popular tourist areas.

Apart from captivating roads of flowers, don't miss a chance

to visit poetic landscapes in Dalat, admire majestic mountains,

enjoy fresh air, and worship at sacred monasteries and temples

such as Truc Lam Zen monastery, as well as Linh Son, and Linh

Phuoc temples. Those who love unique architectural styles should

visit Dalat Cathedral, Domaine De Marie church, Cam Ly church,

and the Dalat's College of pedagogy which exhibits exceptional ©Ppana

European architectural beauty.

To get a panoramic view of the city, the best choice is travel to

Lang Bian Mountain which is considered the "roof" of Lam Vien

plateau at the height of 2.167m. Conquer the peak by trekking

through pine forests or travel by jeep and take in the breathtaking

beauty of the surroundings with undulating roads lined with

houses and pine forests tucked densely in the fog.

• Outfits: One can experience four seasons a day in Dalat. You should

bring a warm jacket to use in the early morning and in the evening. Thin

and comfortable outfits are great choices in the daytime.

• Food: B∏nh tr∏ng n≠Ìng (grilled paper cake) can be found

everywhere in the city, b∏nh kh‰t (mini pancakes), hÒ ti’u nam vang

(Phnom penh noodles soup), b∏nh canh (thick noodle soup) near Dalat

Catheral, grilled dishes at Cu Duc Restaurant, and chà (sweep soup)

at Chà Hä.

• Sightseeing: Datanla Waterfall, Bao Dai Palace, Dalat Station, the

city flower park, and Am Phu market (Hell market).

Hon Khoi: The present of the sea

The name Hon Khoi dates back to the 18 th century.

One of the stories explaining this name is about Ming

remnant soldiers who were unyielding to the Qing

Dynasty. They traveled by boat to the south to find

new land to live upon. Some of them were powerful

and wealthy, using large ships to go further, like Mac Cuu in Ha

Tien. Meanwhile, a few of them wandered on the sea and became

pirates. At that time, the Nguyen Dynasty decided that when the

Chinese pirates came to loot food, villagers set fire on the mountain

peaks, creating smoke to send a distress signal. Since that time, the

island has been called Hon Khoi (Smoke Island).

More than a 1 hour drive from Nha Trang northward, Hon Khoi is

famous for its beautiful Doc Let beach with smooth fine sand used in

incense burners, as well as thesalt fields reaching further inland with the

strong taste of the ocean. The sea is rich with seafood including crabs,

shrimps, shellfishes, and snails which are renowned for their quality.

Fish are so plentiful that locals can even catch them without bait

©nam2505

When you are in Hon Khoi, don't miss the chance to enjoy G·i

Lua (lua salad) prepared from anchovies seasoned with lime juice,

banana stem which is thinly sliced and fried until yellow, and

mashed toasted peanuts. Another specialty of Hon Khoi is... salt.

A plethora of large salt fields stretching to the skyline are always

an endless source of inspiration for both domestic and international

photographers. From Cau Treo, along the banks of Do River in Dong

Hai, villages are to a large part comprised of big white salt dunes.

Every the 1 st and the 15 th of the lunar month when the tide is highest,

locals use small boats to carry salt from the salt fields to market. The

salt warehouse in Dong Hai village contains soaring mountains of

salt. The salt is so solid that locals must use crowbars to take it out

from the mountains. Experiencing one day with farmers will bring

you valued lessons of life and a new appreciation for such a simple

thing as salt.

"Underground" Stars in Waitomo

U

nderground caves full of glow worms were

previously thought to be just Maori legend. Until

1887 when the Waitomo Glowworm caves

were first explored by local Maori Chief Tane

Tinorau accompanied by an English surveyor

Fred Mace. The caves, which are thought to be 30 million years

old, open a new mysterious world.

Located outside the town of Waitomo in the North Island of New

Zealand, the Waitomo caves hide themselves underground,

winding along the Te Anau River and boast system of stalactites

and stalagmites. New Zealand explorer Lawson Burrows

described the caves "like a page out of a space fiction book;

a weird place, but not at all frightening". According to Maori

legend, Lake Te Anau inside the caves was created by Te Horo, a

Maori chief who accidentally discovered his wife's infidelity. His

angry face was reflected in the water. At the same time a torrent

burst forth, drowning the village and forming Lake Te Anau.

To first discover the caves, the explorers had to dive in a

stream emerging from a rock buttress. After pushing themselves

underwater through the rocks, they surfaced in an incredible

cavern of Arachnocampa Luminosa glow-worms, a species

native only to New Zealand. The glow worms light up the caves

like bright blue stars. Why don't you start your spring of journeys

with an adventure exploring the "underground galaxy" - a real

world of Avatar Pandora in New Zealand?

Explore one of the world's

most captivating island

countries

Spanning a modest area in the middle of the

ocean between Sicily (Italy) and the North

African coast, Malta, an island country in the

Mediterranean, consists of three inhabited

islands: Malta, Gozo and Comino. The

country is renowned for ancient relics and

historic stories about the Phoenician, Aragone,

Roman, Greek, and the knights of St. John, as

well as the remnants of famous wars between

European Catholics, the Otttoman Empire, the

success and failure of Napoleon, and World

war II.

If you are interested in architecture then Malta

is a feast with architectural works from a

broad array of different cultures, to leave you

enraptures. Some evidence of Middle Eastern

styles, some other nuances of Northern

African colors, and some places influenced

by European architectural, all together create

the unique feeling of Malta. Visit Mdina's old

quarter, also known as Cittµ Vecchia or Cittµ

Notabile, where everything seems to remain

as it was hundreds of years ago. Dating to the

16 th century, the capital of Malta, Valletta, is

considered as "the richest historical city in the

world" and "a natural museum" preserving

works and historic relics from centuries past,

from the great paintings of the Crusaders to

ancient stonework foundations underground.

After taking in the rich history, sunbathe, go

surfing, relax and enjoy the Azure Window

on Gozo island - one of the most beautiful

places on the earth. The Azure Window is a

masterpiece formed by the relentless effors

of nature. The work consists of unique archshaped

stones where you can sit to view the

small bays, green hills, and steep cliffs of

Gozo. Much simpler than Malta island, Gozo

offers white cliffs, red-orange sand beaches

in sunset lights, and a perfect turquoise sea

in Ramla Bay. Don't forget to enjoy Ftira, a

special flatbread with a hole in the center.

With oil, tomato, garlic, and onion, Ftira in

Gozo is said to be the most delicious Ftira in

Mediterranean.

• Studio: Movie lovers around the world, especially

fans of the film Troy, will be fond of the Troy studio built

at Fort Ricasoli on Malta Island, scenes in Mellieha,

a small town in the north of Malat, and Comino islet.

Malta is also the setting place of Popeye. The studio

is still completely intact.

• Food: There are many restaurants and cafes

serving delicious foods and wines. You should try

Al Fresco dishes to enjoy the signature taste of the

Mediterranean, especially in summer.

Bring you back the

student time

The most interesting thing of JW

Marriot Phu Quoc Emerald Bay

is its architectural design which

is inspired by Lamarck University

- the first university to be

established in Phu Quoc in 1904. Each building is

design as a department.

The Department of Chemistry Bar is the best place

to admire the art of bartending in the majestic

surroundings of Ngoc Bich Bay. For a multicultural

dining experience, Tempus Fugit with

French, Japanese, and Vietnamese cuisine is superb

while Pink Pearl offers exquisite Cantonese dishes

which are powerful like the love story between

the girl Chau Hong and the young fishman in the

past. Don't forget to visit Rue de Lamarck with the

spirit of Hoi An's ancient town to sightsee and go

shopping at handicraft, flower, and gift shops, and

traditional bakeries, as well as enjoy folk dances

and ÆÍn ca tµi tˆ that are performed every night.

February, the month of spring, is the best time to

experience the emerald cool water in Bai Khem

beach, Phu Quoc.

Vietnamese culture is richly woven with mystery and fables. Some of the

fables are all too true though, like the intriguing mystery of The M'nong

tribe. In their world, elephants play a huge role in their lives, symbolizing

wealth, power and strength of spirit.

Text and photos: Rähahn C.

The elephants are highly revered

to an incredible degree and are,

therefore, treated like human

beings in this tribe.

M'nong people coexist with

elephants, sharing a special

bond with the creatures and are

well-known for their elephant

training skills. Tracking and

"domesticating" elephants is a

very tricky and dangerous job.

The hunters not only require

special skills to overcome the

challenges of capturing them,

but they also need to overcome

the adversities that a wild jungle

presents.

The wild elephants are captured

when they are very young and

then reared as pets. Having a

"domesticated" elephant plays

a crucial part in uplifting the

daily life of locals and also

serves as an important means of

transportation for the M'nong

people.

Traditionally, elephants were

symbols of war. The chief

of the village often be hear

telling amazing cultural stories

about how elephants aided

in overpowering an enemy.

Elephants are not seen as

workers but rather as partners in

enriching the lives of the M'nong

tribe.

The Law for Protecting

Elephants

The Law of protecting elephants

was created by the M'nong tribe.

When elephants are not in good

physical condition, it's the duty of

the villagers to take care of them.

This is both a duty and a privilege.

People who abuse or eat elephants

are duly punished, and those who

kill elephants for business or

profit are strictly penalized. There

are various fines that need to be

paid depending on the severity of

the crime. Those who excessively

abuse elephants pay a fine by

replacing it with a cow or another

elephant.

This law of care applies to both

humans and elephants. If, for

some reason, an elephant abuses

or causes the death of a human,

it is killed. The village chief

organizes a hearing to discuss the

claims with other villagers and

depending on the circumstance,

a suitable punishment will be

carried out.

The 6 th Buon Ma Thuot

Coffee Festival and

Central Highlands

Gong Culture Festival

2017 will take place

from March 8 th to 13 th

in various places in

Lak District and Buon

Ma Thuot.


The Ritual for

Elephant Health

In the town of Lien Son in Dak Lak

province, an annual prayer ritual for

elephant health is organized during the

first month of the Lunar New Year. This

tradition has been going on for more

than a thousand years. The time of the

event depends on the condition of the

elephants' health and their owners.

Those who attend this event usually

bring alcohol or a pig as a gift for the

owner.

The Alarming Number of

Domestic Elephants

According to statistics from 2005, the

number of domestic elephants has been

drastically reduced from 600 (in 1980)

to 165 (in 2005) - Source: eleaid.com.

This alarming number shows how

important it is to preserve the population

of elephants and to revive the elephant

population. The elephants play a huge

role in the culture and heritage of the

M'nong and a loss of elephants means a

loss of cultural heritage and identity for

this group.

The Story of Kim Luan, 6

Years Old

This photo symbolizes the respect

between the M'nong and the

elephants. Taken in 2014, this

shot was published in more

than 40 countries and several

word famous magazines such as Time

Magazine and National Geographic...

What makes this picture even more

special is the contrasting opposites of a

small girl in front of such a huge wild

creature. An interesting fact is that the

photographer was unable to get close to

the wild elephant, yet the little girl could.

The good news is the government of Dak

Lak province is determined to preserve

the regional elephant population as well

as the traditional customs of the M'nong.

The local authorities want to help protect

the relationship between the M'nong

and the elephants. The government is

also taking steps to preserve the cultural

costumes of this tribe.

The M'nong:

ñ In 2009, the population of M'nong

stood at roughly 102,741. They lived

mainly in the mountainous areas of the

Dak Lak, Dak Nong, Quang Nam and

Lam Dong provinces. Other than these,

there is a small group of M'nong living in

Cambodia.

Culture:

ñ The M'nong have an interesting

collection of mystical stories, slang and

idioms. They follow polytheism; the

belief in or worship of more than one

Further information:

god. However, some others follow

Christianity. The M'nong love wearing

many different kinds of jewellery such

as necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and

gold rings.

Village:

ñ The M'nong village is called a Buon.

Each Buon has more than 20 families

and they are closely connected, forming

supportive relationships with each other.

The roofs of all the houses are covered

with dried grass and the doors and

window frames are made from wood

and bamboo. They often live in areas

near valleys and lakes forming close

relationships with nature.

Economy:

The M'nong are a slash and burn culture.

In particular, those who live near the

riverside usually farm rice. According to

Mr. Ama Phong, from M'nong Ri©m in

the Læc district of Dak Lak, the ancient

M'nong didn't use slash and burn

cultivation. Instead, they are fishermen

and grow rice as well. He says the

traditional customs and habits of M'nong

are very similar to the dÍ ethnic group.

The main difference is the language

between M'nong and the £d ethnic

groups.

+ Food: Corn, cassava, sweet potatoes

and rice make up the bulk of the M'n´ng

main diet. They love sour food such

as young bamboo shoots, fish sauce,

fermented fish, shrimp and some buffalo

meat. Normally, food is marinated and

preserved for a long time so it can be

used for a whole season.

Meanwhile, a few branches of peach blossoms are adding their pink

In the poetic white cascade of plum blossoms are the

rustic wooden houses of the H'mong ethnic people. There are

some kids sitting in front of the houses, some other siblings

just happily playing with each other as innocent as the land

where they were born. There are some little boys riding

their bikes along the dirt road or climbing on the plum trees,

greeting visitors with the friendliest of smiles. Their giggles

spread in the spring air, carried on the breeze like the petals

they are surrounded by. Together with their colorful traditional

attire, they bring a new atmosphere to the village.

CALLIGRAPHY is the art of writing letters.

If you write for an artistic purpose, your

writing becomes an artwork. But if you just

write to express a message in letters without

any artistic aspects, it is normal text.

Everyone writes; however, "writing" is not

as easy as you think. If you don't believe

this, take a paragraph from your favorite

book and try to write it down in the style

of calligraphy (be it traditional or modern

calligraphy). Personally, I have learned a lot

about patience when writing long passages in

this way. I started by learning how to enjoy

the sound of paper, the scent of ink, and

the aroma of wood from the pen instead of

focusing on what I was am going to write.

Calligraphy requires the harmony of mind

and hands. If you focus too much on the

content, you will forget how to write.

Meanwhile, if you focus much on writing

skills, you will easily misspell words. When

one is writing, having many thoughts in their

mind puts stress on their body. Therefore, I

always free my mind when writing calligraphy,

letting my thoughts go with the letters. At

first, even waiting for the ink to dry was a

horrible test of patience. But eventually, I

have learned how to balance myself, keeping

my mind focused yet liberal.

Like meditation, calligraphy can easily

generate positive energy and an inspired

spirit. Practice regularly and you will know

how to balance your thoughts and prevent

them from being interrupted. Your body and

mind will be more relaxed. Spending a few

minutes each day practicing calligraphy is a

good way to relax and refresh your brain.

Text: Le Chau Photos: Many Photographers

Not only famous for the modern Kuala Lumpur, antique

Malacca, and beautiful Penang, Malaysia attracts

visitors with enchanting islands as well. One of them

is the Perhentian archipelago with two main islands

- Perhentian Kecil (small island) and Perhentian Besar

(big island) in the northeast of Malaysia adjacent to the

southern border of Thailand.

TRAVELLIVE


While locals and visitors can enjoy simple traditional food on the first floor,

the upper level is home to the region's signature spices

Listed as one of the world's 100

most beautiful beaches by CNN,

Perhentian will never disappoint

you. Immerse yourself in

emerald water or stroll down

the coastal roads to enjoy the

peaceful atmosphere there. The

pristine beauty of the small

islands will bring you to a new

world with colorful coral reefs,

vibrant fish and lovely turtles

having fun in the ocean.

Kota Bharu, a unique

destination

Located in the north

of Malaysia, Kota

Bharu is the capital

of Kelantan state.

This is a unique

destination for those who want

to explore Malaysian culinary

arts and the local traditional

culture before heading to

Perhentian. Separated from the

hustle and bustle of modern

cities, Kota Bharu brings you to

a nostalgic world with special

architectural styles exhibited

via museums, culture centers,

mosques, and local markets.

There, you will have a chance to

buy an array of goods, including

exquisite silverwares, handcrafts,

and batik fabrics well as enjoy

delicious street food.

On my own trip, after strolling

along the center area I visited

Gelanggang Seni - the cultural

center of Kota Bharu - to

learn more about Malaysian

architecture and Kelatan culture

by partaking in folk games,

contemplating pictures, and

watching traditional martial arts

performances. I also took time

to visit the antique castle Istana

Jahar and Royal Museum which

is home to historic relics and

royal artworks from the ancient

Islamic dynasties. Since Kota

Bharu is a small city, it is quick

and easy to travel to different

mosques and historic sites.

At noon, as guided by the

information desk's staff, I

traveled to the suburbs to

visit traditional villages which

specialize in silverware and

textile crafts. After that, I went

back to the city and visited the

most popular central market in

the shape of an octagon. While

locals and visitors can enjoy

simple traditional food on the

first floor, the upper level is

home to the region's signature

spices, colorful fabrics and silks,

along with copper products, and

other goods.

At first glance, Kota Bharu

doesn't have much to offer, but

inside this small peaceful city

are countless interesting places

to attract and entrance visitors.

Explore what secret's are hiding

behind the city's gates.

Relax on the beach paradise, feel the music, and enjoy a BBQ party

with friends on weekend. What more could you ask for?

Inviting beach paradise

When we were

travelling from

Kota Bharu to

Kuala Besut

harbor, our

friendly driver told us many stories

about locals and how they often

visit mosques. He also invited me to

experience a prayer meeting. After

a 15-minute prayer meet ended, we

continued the trip to the harbor. I

decided to stay there a night so that I

could enjoy nasi lemak, a traditional

breakfast with rice chicken, boiled

egg, fried fish and sambal sauce,

served with a hot fragrant the tarik

(hot milk tea).

Taking the first ship to the island

in the early morning, I knew my

time spent waiting was well worth

it. The turquoise water waving

upon the ship's sides brought me a

pleasant feeling and wiped away all

my weariness of daily life. I decided

to stay in Perhentian Besar (the big

island) for its tranquil space, fresh air,

and long white sand beaches. A true

beach paradise in Malaysia!

To completely take in the beauty

of this area, I rented a kayak to

explore around the islands and its

surrounding islets. Then, I started

my adventure in the ocean to admire

the beautiful marine life. There are

snorkeling and scuba diving tours

which last from 3 to 5 hours at various

rates. What could be better than

feeling small fish touch your skin,

swimming over beautiful large coral

reefs, and watching big turtles and

small sharks swimming around?

Perhentian is renowned not only for

turquoise water and snorkeling tours

but also tropical forests covering the

island. Small paths in forests lead

you to a new world of diverse plants

and animals. I spent a day trekking

through the forest with a group of

young people. We were captivated

by the amazing scenery, fresh air,

harmless iguanas, and countless

different type of birds.

At sunset, I walked along the beach,

watching small boats carry fresh

seafood from the ocean. Although

the island is far away from the main

land, food is fresh and delicious.

One is best to enjoy grilled meat and

seafood for dinner while saving local

specialties for breakfast and lunch.

True highlight to mention is that

there are music parties every weekend

night in summer. Relax on the beach

paradise, feel the music, and enjoy a

BBQ party with friends. What more

could you ask for?

Further information:

Text and photos: Khue Viet Truong

Like Snake Farm, a famous destination in Thailand, a

new destination has opened in Nha Trang, complete with

unique and bizarre shows.

I was quite surprised when

coming to a snake-themed

artistic center called Nha

Trang Snake Show, a unique

destination in this southern

coastal community. The center

is easily recognizable by its

thatched cottage architecture,

reminiscent of the Vietnamese

countryside.

Having been officially open and

welcoming visitors for nearly 2

years, the Nha Trang Snake show

has been long awaited by many

people who have been excited

to witness talented performers

act with wild snakes. Nipolajs

Solovjous, a 30-year Russian

and CEO of Nha Trang Snake

Show, shared that he used to

watch fascinating snake shows

in Thailand, and the idea of

forming a snake tourism center

in Vietnam occurred to him.

BREATHLESS AT

Located in the village of Phuoc

Dien in Phuoc Dong commune

(a suburb of Nha Trang), with

a total area of 5.000 square

meters, the Nha Trang Snake

Show is one of the biggest

snake performing art centers

in Southeast Asia. It is a joint

project with Erawadee Company

and the Pattaya Snake Farm

(Thailand). The Nha Trang

snake show is operated by snake

experts, currently exhibiting and

introducing 20 different kinds

of snakes. The performance of

venomous snakes is particularly

popular and lively.

Here, the picturesque scenery

with its many mango trees

make guests feel like they are

wandering in a peaceful village.

We start to explore the center.


While the Snake Farm

(Thailand) attracts many

tourists with its snake cages

and snake performances

including catching snakes,

playing with snakes and

opening their mouths, the Nha

Trang Snake Show can create

a new feeling for tourists after

visiting all corners of this site.

In the snake breeding

area, tourists can see

tightly covered yet well

ventilated glass cages

with white sand floors

for the snakes to slither around

in. In the cages are dry stumps

which these reptiles can curl

around. Moreover, venomous

snakes, water snakes, pythons

and even salamanders are also

included in this sophisticated

collection.

Nipolajs Solovjous says that

the purpose of opening the

Nha Trang Snake Show

is to drive people towards

environmentally-friendly

activities and to realize that

snakes are useful animals.

Snakes are a great source

of medicine. Their meat is

said to cure neurological

diseases, aches, pains,

paralysis, convulsion,

epileptic convulsion, boils and

ulceration diseases. Snake fat

is said to cicatrize wounds

rapidly and heal burns. Snake

blood may cure backaches,

while snake bile is used as an

anti-inflammatory, an antioncotic,

to help rheumatism,

treat cold perspiration, manage

asthma, reduce high fever

and relieve headaches. Snake

venom is also used to treat

leprosy, cancer, epilepsy,

muscle pain, angina pectoris,

arthritis, and neuritis. Their

skin can be used for antisepsis,

mangy, rot ears, sore throat,

children's epileptic seizures

and more.

While snake awareness is

essential to the project in Nha

Trang, the show itself is clearly

the main event. Audiences

enthusiastically wonder how

artists can perform with their

snakes. With the venue having

a 100 person capacity, the

stage features a thick layer

of glass in the center so that

snakes cannot accidentally

escape and crawl out. During

show time, audiences are

asked not to move to avoid

attracting the dangerous

attention of the snakes. Two

performers wearing black

clothes and heads wrapped

in towels deliver a surprising

and thrilling spectacle. Snakes

are put on wood barrels

with wheels. Everyone is

scared when a wild cobra is

released from a barrel, but the

performers skillfully hold its

tail and play with it in different

postures. Then comes another

poisonous snake, three more

and lastly a group of big

snakes, each at least 1.5m long,

are released.

A performer deftly plays with

two poisonous snakes in his

bare hands. And what about

the third snake? He quickly

opens its mouth and keeps

it open when it is about to

attack him. The python is

immediately controlled by

the skilled and professional

artist. His actions of opening

the snake's mouth, taking its

venom and distinguishing

whether it is male or female,

shocks the audience. The

performance lasts about 20

minutes, always leaving the

packed audience smiling and

satisfied.

A scuffle between a cobra

and a mongoose was another

interesting part of the show.

Cobras can live together

with mongooses because a

mongoose can easily eat a

cobra without being poisoned.

However, the scuffle is ended

just before the two are about to

engage in a fight to the death.

Already attracting many

tourists, the Nha Trang Snake

Show promises to offer more

interesting and thrilling

performances to show how

mysterious the snake world is.

Further information:

ü The Nha Trang Snake Show is located

in the village of Phuoc Dien in Phuoc

Dong commune (suburb of Nha Trang).

About 1km north of the Phuoc Dong

People's committee, after passing Hon Thi

quarry. Visitors can easily find the place on

the road on the left.

ü In Nha Trang, please contact the hotel's

tour desk for further information.

After seeing the photo of Deu Deuch (*) I've uploaded on Facebook, my Belgium

friend surprisingly tells me "I have a Deu Deuch in sky blue, too. I don't think there

are Deu Deuchs in Madagascar!" In addition to more than 50-year-old antique taxis

running on the streets, Madagascar has more to surprise you.

The nostalgic painting

I traveled to Tana - short by

Antananarivo, Madagascar's

capital - when attending the 16 th

Francophone Summit. With

the participation of 80 leaders

from the member states of the

International Organization of

La Francophonie (IOF), the

16 th Francophone Summit was

considered the most important

international conference hosted

by the country since it officially

became an independent country

in 1960. I could feel the locals'

excitement just by looking at

their faces.

atrick, our driver,

enthusiastically

showed us the road

that was opened

the previous

day to welcome

the event. More police officers

were assigned to the streets for

security purposes and ensure the

smooth flow of traffic. However,

it was a hard task as traffic jams

are common in this city. "In

the upcoming days, wake up at

6am or you will be stuck on the

streets", he suggested.

We stayed in the city center as all

From the hotel's window, what I can see is a poetic painting

of the peaceful life in the 1950s - people going to the church

in the early morning, charming girls in high waisted

skirt strolling down the street, and especially hundreds of

vehicles running from every sloped corner.

hotels near the convention center

have been fully booked, even

though there were many hotels

built in preparation of the event.

The Grand H´tel Urban was one

of them. The hotel, located right

in High City in the heart of the

city, is so new that we couldn't

find it on any online booking

websites.

Having a chance to be one of

the first guest in a newly built

hotel made me excited, wiping

out all my weariness after nearly

30 hours transiting at Bangkok

and Nairobi airports. But the

happiness of "already been

here" is really unbounded in the

next morning.

From the hotel's window, what

I could see was a poetic painting

of the peaceful life in the 1950s

- people going to the church in

in high waisted skirts strolling

down the street, and especially

hundreds of vehicles running

from every sloped corner.

Wander in

the romantic Tana

Antananarivo, located by the

shore at the edge of the Indian


ocean in southeastern Africa,

is the capital and also the

economic, administrative, and

cultural center of the island

country The city's history is

associated with the history of

the Rova of Antananarivo. In the

period from 1610 to 1630, King

Andrianjaka built a rova (fortified

royal dwelling) on the highest

hill and deployed a garrison of

1,000 soldiers to protect and

guard the site. The city then

was named Antananarivo ("City

of the Thousand") in honor of

Andrianjaka's 1000 soldiers. The

rova, well-known as the Queen's

Palace, is one of must-visit

destination in Tana as it offers

you a great panoramic view of 12

hills embracing the city.

In Tana, the most intriguing

experience is chatting with locals.

The famous author of adventure

Further information:

Itinerary:

ñ You can fly from Hanoi to Nairobi (Kenya)

with Kenya Airways and take another flight to

Antananarivo.

Cuisine:

ñ One of must-try dishes in Antananarivo is

ravitoto sy henakisoa which is prepared with

mashed cassava leaves with pork and served

with rice.

Local markets:

ñ Thurday morning is when the flea market on

the bank of Anosy lake is open. Here, you can

meet merchants from different areas and buy

second-hand items at extremely low prices.

Art market:

ñ Visit Zoma concept market to admire and

buy creative products by young local artists.

Sightseeing:

ñ Apart from the Queen's Palace,

Ankaditapaka offer a complete view to the

city center.

travel books - Dervla Murphy

- once said that "Apart from the

Tibetans, I have never travelled

among a people as endearing as

the Malagasy."

The interesting experiences in

dealing with the locals begin right

from learning their names. Their

long names seem to hold a long

story about their owners. For

example, the surname of Sitrika is

Andrianjafimarosoa which means

"a happy aristocratic man". My

friend Ntrina has a meaningful

surname - Miharinavalontsoa

which refers to a person who

doesn't limit herseft in the

boundary of materials but always

seeks for a true love.

During my stay in Tana, I was

always greeted with local smiles.

They smile at me as if I was a

local too! Perhaps, this is the

only African country whose

majority of population originate

from Southeast Asia. When

visiting the Queen's Palace, your

tour guide will introduce you

to a statue of a woman with the

typical features of the Madagascar

women - Asian slanted eyes and

the firm body and curly hair of

Africans. As history has it, the

human settlement of Madagascar

occurred between 350 BC and 550

AD by Austronesian people.

While locals thought I was an

inhabitant, the scenery made

me think I am wandering in

Vietnam. It's hard not to think of

Hoan Kiem Lake when coming

across Anosy Lake especially

as it's aboutthe same size. And

Tana also boasts purple roads of

Jacaranda like the foggy Dalat of

Vietnam.

At an altitude of 1245m above sea

level, the city's weather is always

chilly as in early autumn days. It

seemed an irresistible pleasure

to sit and savor a few glasses of

rum with international friends.

The essence of this drink is the

blend of rum with vanilla, lemon,

cinnamon, ginger, or any flavors

you like. Like in conversation, it

is interesting when participants

have different perspectives.

Located in the south of the Alps and in the northernmost part of

beautiful Italy, the majestic Dolomites belongs to Trentio Alto Adige,

also known as Trento SudTirol in German, which means the southern

region of Austria's Tirol Province. The Dolomites are quiet as if it bears

the wounds of the tragic love between the calm and placid Austria and

the effervescent and haughty Italy.

I have always been enthralled

with the fabulously vivid and

ample beauty of Italy with

sunshine. However, upon

arriving at Bolzano station

in the capital of Alto Adige,

I was surprised by a new

Italy which is far different

from the one I kept in mind.

Italy this time consisted

of squeaky clean roads,

tree-lined parks, coldness,

and inhabitants who use

German as their official

language. Moreover, Trento

Alto Adige is the wealthiest

administrative region in

Italy with the centralized

managing systems

completely separated from

the national government.

Dolomites consist of more than 40 mountains with various heights from 2235m to

3343m as well as 18 trekking rails. Its large size can confuse any visitor when choosing

the starting point for their journey. However, the government of Alto Adige has built

an amazing transportation system that allows visitors to travel to most of the desirable

destinations by bus or cable car. Some famous destinations in Alto Adige, including

Carezza Lake, Cortina Town, Tre Cime Mount, and the pretty capital Bolzano are

connected by the Great Dolomites Road.

The Great Dolomites Road

One of the must-visit places in the

Dolomites is the La Grande Strada delle

Dolomiti (Great Dolomites Road) from

Bolzano. The road is 110km long and

goes through numerous large tunnels.

The road also leads you to pretty valleys

nestled among the Dolomites' "big

arms", crossing Val D'Ega, Vigo di

Fassa, Canazei, to Cortina.

Established in 1909, the

Great Dolomites Road

features many parts

built entirely by man

power due to the lack

of technology. It is one of the most

important roads in Italy, connecting

the country in Southern Europe with

Northern Europe. Work began in 1901

with a grand total of 2500 workers set

to the task of building the road with the

motto "No hotel without roads, no road

without hotels". Thanks to convenience

in traveling, the Dolomites become

one of the ideal destinations for nature

loving travelers. During the trip along

the Great Dolomites Road, you will be

surprised with the breathtaking nature,

be excited by lovely towns nestled near

majestic limestone mountains, and feel

peaceful when watching cows slowly

enjoying grass on the quiet meadows.

Deep blue Carezza

At the height of 1,534m, Carezza Lake is impressive with deep

blue water. The lake is always full thanks to the underground

water source from the mountain peak. The name Carezza is

derived from a word in Latin which means "rainbow lake".

According to legend, there was once a beautiful mermaid

named Udine living in the lake. So enchanted by Udine, Laterma drew up a

rainbow on the lake to seduce her. However, astonished by the beauty and

power of Udine, Laterma was scared and broke the rainbow on Carezza.

Near the bank, trees with yellow leaves reflect on the lake, while the color

of water gets darker. The darkest area, a rich black blue, is the center of the

lake which is 17 meters deep. In spring when the mountain ice - melts, the

lake's surface is wider, double the total area compared to during the middle

of the dry winter. However, regardless of the weather, be it cold winter or hot

summer, Carezza is one of the most attractive destinations partly because it

is located near the capital Bolzano. Few people know that Carezza also offers

amazing wood and that it's the number 1 choice for wood by the world's

leading violin and guitar manufacturers.

Cortina - The fairy town

Our next destination was Cortina, a fairy

land in the westernmost region of the

Great Dolomites Road. Over the previous

centuries, numerous renowned poets

and writers such as Ernest Hemingway

and Saul Bellow have travelled thousands

of miles to get to Cortina and admire the

simple yet enticing beauty of Cortina.

Time after time, great artists have

visited the city bringing Cortina great art

value, in literature, music and cinema.

Cortina has appeared in countless

movies such as James Bond, The Pink

Panther, and Cliffhanger. Surprisingly,

most all families in Cortina play music

instruments. Every July when the

Dolomites change its coat of snow,

Cortina impresses visitor with its Piano

contest named Dino Ciani. In 1956,

Cortina also hosted the Winter Olympics

and since that time many other winter

competitions have been held in this

beautiful town.


Numerous renowned poets and writers have travelled thousands of

The legend Cime Peak

The image of the majestic Tre Cime with

the height of more than 3000m appears

in every tourist publications about the

Dolomites. Tre Cime is the border

between Austria and Italy as well as the

boundary between the Italian-speaking

region and the German-speaking region

in the Alto Adige territory.

To reach Tre Cime, we drove from

Cortina town, crossed Misurina Lake,

and stopped at Rifugio Auronzo. From

there, we started a 1.7km trek to the

nearest stop to Tre Cime. The imposing

beauty of Tre Cime with undulating

mountains and discolored forests can't

be described by any single word or

photos. It is a beauty that one must take

in by their own eyes. One must visit the

place and get the feeling of being small

in the vastness nature.

The tranquil Bolzano

Nothing could be better than completing your day in the Dolomites by

enjoying cuisine and wine in the tranquil capital Bolzano. Because of

the local climate, cool weather and lots of rain and frost, grapevines

in the Bolzano's vineyards are bended to make sure that clusters of

grapes are covered by foliage, offering the highest quality of fruit. If you

are familiar with well balanced wines from the Chianti region or tasty

wines from Southern Italy, then Schiava, Lagrein and Gewürztraminer

will bring you a new distinct impression.

The lack of sunshine makes wine in Bolzano less fragrant with fruit

flavors like that in other regions. Instead, wine is more sophisticated

with different characteristics. For example, Schiava is gentle and

youthful; Lagrein is fascinating, while Gewürztraminer is elegant.

Bolzano food remains a product of influence from Austria and

Germany. There are many bakeries selling German breads and apple

cakes, as well as carts selling sausages along the streets. It's hard to

find a Chinese restaurant or Kebab on the city which preserves many

traditional values as Bolzano.

Further information:

Transportation:

ñ The most suitable means of

transportation to the Dolomites is by

train. It takes only about 2 hours to

travel by train between Bolzano and

big cities such as Munich or Verona,

Austria. Travelling by rain allows you to

take it the beautiful landscapes through

majestic mountains.

Weather:

ñ It's cold in the Dolomites because of

the high mountainous terrain. Spring

(February and March) is the last period

when the mountains are covered with

snow. Daytime temperatures are around

7 - 10 o C, and about -2 - 2 o C at night.

Therefore, you should bring with you

warm outfits, and warm jackets, as well

as waterproof hiking shoes if you want

to participate in trekking or skiing.

Languages:

Although it's a popular tourist

destination, Alto Adige is the area with

the smallest number of immigrants in

Italy. Thus, all places are safe and serene.

You can communicate with locals in

English, Italian, or German.

Activities:

ñ Apart from the mentioned

destinations, you can buy a ticket to

go skiing in Dolomites for 50EUR per

day. For details, please visit http://www.

dolomitisuperski.com/en

Notes:

ñ If you don't want to rent a car

to travel among different areas of

Dolomites but still want to take in

the beauty of Dolomites, then book a

tour with local guides at http://www.

GAME OF FOG

AND CLOUDS

The most interesting thing about the nature of the monsoon

season is that you never know what is going to happen in the

next few minutes. Almora is the perfect example to show you

the Himalayan region during the rainy season. It sounds crazy

to travel to Uttarakhand at this time as it is considered the most

dangerous place in India to go in raining season.

My journey begins directly from

Dehradun, but it's not a bad idea as my

friend suggests stopping in Ranikhet

on the way to experience the "taste" of

its monsoon days. Actually, Ranikhet is

not included in my plan as Almora is

my desired destination. Ranikhet is only

a small hilltown, but an ideal place for

capturing some Himalayan views as long

as the weather is in a good mood - if it's

sunny. Try your luck here to find whether

you are fortunate enough to get a good

view of the Himalayas or not as foggy is

the main characteristic of this season.

In these days, the entire town is covered

with fog, it covers every single rooftop

126

of all the houses. There is nearly no

chance to see a rainbow after a half day

of heavy rain. Though I had no idea

about Ranikhet before, I didn't think

it wanted to let me go in that way.

Anyway, it gave me more fun than I

could imagine as my friend and I took

a long walk full of jokes in the rain.

Undoubtedly, if you are a true rain

lover, then Ranikhet in the monsoon

season is the best destination for you

to enjoy the rhythm of the rain in

the slow life of the small town before

heading to Almora.

Almora then becomes my only

hope of admiring the beauty of the

Himalays, although it is only 70km

from Ranikhet to Almora.

A

shared jeep will

take you straight to

Almora via the most

adventurous road that

you only can know

about when you are already settled

on. The jeep gradually goes up windy

roads all the way up to Almora. And if

you want to "define" how dangerous

it is, check the waste left by carsick

victims. Anyway, it's not a bad price

to experience this and witness an

"OMG" educing landscape. The

beauty of Alroma will mesmerize you

immediately so that all you can do is

stick your eyes on the car window,

contemplating the surroundings.

That's a gift from nature to any of her

devotee.

Monsoon season adds such a

distinctive green color to the nature

that you will be absolutely amazed

and will wonder why other people

are scared of this season, whilst

it's the best time to see the pure

beauty of nature so green and lively.

Interestingly, you will never know

what's behind the veil of fogs. That's

what you will realize when you reach

Almora.

Fresh sun rays and

the fascinating taste

of mountain winds

will lead you to the

last destination,

inviting you to

enjoy the breath of Himalayan

nature, the peacefulness of nature, as

traditional songs echo from the mighty

mountains, and small lives.

Fog gets denser and starts the game

with its friend - clouds - right before

we reach Almora. During rainy season,

Almora looks like it's being hit in the

face with a water balloon filled with

the color of life. This small hill town

is home to sights of the charming

beauty of Himalayan ranges during

both sunrise and sunset. If you get off

the shared jeep in the late afternoon,

you can't escape from the game of fog

and clouds in Almora. This is the most

interesting and enchanting thing that

you cannot get in any other season.

Upon arriving at Kasar Devi temple on

the hilltop, take the opportunity to see

the Himalays and take another jeep

to start your game with the fog and

clouds.

The shared jeep will leave you in

an area where you will be able to

find many guest houses or hotels in

Kasar Devi village. Kasar Devi is also

called terrace village because villagers

built their houses on the side of the

mountain, offering an amazing view

of Himalayan ranges. But the fog and

clouds won't let you enjoy it as easy as

travel guides might tell you. Beware!

The beauty of the fog is that we see

nothing but you will be thrilled by

their hidden mysterious beauty.

If you think that you will find your

guesthouse easily, then you have

been taken by the trap of Almora in

monsoon season. I certainly was. Fog

never wants to play an easy game. It

prevents you from any hope of seeing

clear roads or paths leading to your

place. Instead you have to keep your

awareness level high while at the same

time reminding yourself not to be

scared. Follow the small signal boards

on a zigzag down tracks with sudden

changes that you only know when you

reach it due to the veil of fog.

If you're supposed to wake up early in

the morning to see the majestic view

of the Himalayas during sunrise, you

can allow yourself to relax and sleep

in the pleasant weather there. Fog

and clouds will play for a while till

lunch time, chasing and catching each

other until the sunshine paints some

rays on the rooftop of each house.

Drops become pure and sparkling.

The utmost beauty of Almora is its simple life. There are some

kitchens rising into the air. Mother Nature

is most charming in the morning. You

will be astonished by the calm picture of

Almora at this time a day. Sit back and

savor the moment. It will keep you away

from your chaotic thoughts of the outside

world, in turn allowing you to think about

your life and seek new inspirations.

But that moment won't last too long as

fog and clouds never forget to return.

All backgrounds become grey with their

particular taste of monsoon - wind with

a little rain. When the time runs out, you

can see the blue sky once again with its

majestic portrayal of the Himalayan ranges,

its a time when you get to know that you're

so lucky to be in that moment.

The utmost beauty of Almora is its simple

life. It's simple in every aspect of daily life.

There are some scattered houses in the

village where you can see old people sitting

calmly in front of their house looking at the

serene nature. There are some laughing

school children on their way back home

under the familiar foggy game. This is the

simple life that you can't find anywhere

outside the world of Almora.

The sunset comes like the last hope at the

end of the day to let you enjoy the moment

of truth. It is a passionate sunset for the

lover of nature. It picks your mind up with

a miraculous combination of end of the day

sunshine rays and fog, fog coming up from

the Earth to join with its companion and

creates a remarkably harmonious moment

of nature; the light lifts the fog step by step

till the time its ready to start covering the

village with Her mystical veil one more

time.

The sound of bells ringing from Kasar Devi

temple pull everything back to harmony

and remind me this mysterious world truly

exists behind the magical veil of fog in

monsoon season this world that not many

people outside the veil know about. It's an

amazing gift of Mother Nature that anyone

would feel lucky to witness.

The number of sea turtles is dramatically decreasing not only because of damaged habitats but also

due to human over-exploitation. Turtle meat and eggs are served as food while their shells are taken to

make stuffing forms and crafts. It's high time for us to act and prevent this alarming issue.

TRAVELLIVE 133


The egg is as small

as a ping-pong ball,

but its amount of

cholesterol is 20

times higher than

that of chicken

egg, an excess of

which can lead to

heart attack or

stroke. Turtle eggs

are definitely not

magical as they

might be rumored

to be.


You know what, in

1000 baby turtles

only 600 ones

are successful in

finding their way to

the swallow water near the shore.

Among them, only one turtle is

strong enough to survive and

return to the beach to lay eggs

after 15-20 years. What's more is

this extremely low rate has been

affected by humans for decades.

In Vietnam, Con Dao National

Park is considered a paradise

for turtles to lay eggs at with 14

large beaches including Hon

Bay Canh, Hon Cau, and Hon

Tre Lon, spanning a total area of

dozens of thousands of square

some. Observing a turtle surfing

on the water to find a place to

lay her eggs is an intriguing

experience.

Not many people know that, when

laying eggs, turtles do not know if

their children are male or female.

While human sex is formed by

chromosomal structures, sand's

temperature and environment

are the key factors to decide a

turtle sex. Incubating eggs at high

temperature (above 29 degrees

C) produces more females, while

lower temperatures produce

more males. Researchers indicate

that turtles can choose the areas

with suitable sand's temperature

to choose their children's sex.

after years.

The fantasy world on the ocean

floor with the huge diversity of

fish and colorful coral reefs are

exciting but dangerous to baby

turtles. Upon reaching the water,

they will swim continuously

for 2-5 days without food. Their

first year of life is known as the

"disappearing year" as they are

rarely found during this period.

How they can survive in their

first year is still a mystery for

scientists, for no device can track

the development of baby turtles in

their first stage of life.

In addition to the rigors of nature,

sea turtles now have to struggle to

This new year, why don't we make efforts to change this sad fact, to build a

peaceful "house" of healthy ecosystem so that the little turtle can safely "find

their way home" after years of living in the ocean?

kilometers. If you have a chance,

then visit Hon Bay Canh in the

east of Con Son island. Here, the

island's two parts are connected

by a sand beach named Bai Cat

Lon (the large sand beach). This

is where sea turtles most often lay

their eggs. Meanwhile, Hon Tre

Lon is a pristine island and home

to various examples of nature

such as coral, fish, bird nests, and,

especially, sea turtles. There are

several rangers living and working

to protect the island's natural

landscape and wild life.

The breeding season of sea turtles

lasts from April to October, in

which the peak season is from

July to September. You are only

allowed to visit Bay Canh island

for 4-6 hours, or, at most, a night

stay to watch turtles lay eggs. To

do that, you must ask for a permit

from the National Park on the

Con Son island (the permit is

free of charge and valid until 5pm

the next day). In each breeding

season, a turtle lays eggs in 2-5

nests. Each nest consists of 50

to 150 eggs, or even up to 200 in

In Con Dao, rangers support to

balance turtle sexes by taking a

half of eggs to a place with more

sunshine while covering the other

under a sunscreen. After 45 to 60

days, the baby turtles hatch from

their eggs.

The baby turtles then find their

way to the sea by the skyline,

moonlight, stars, and the slope of

sand. Therefore, if the turtle mom

lays its eggs near residential areas

which have strong light, baby

turtles will misunderstand and

move backward to that direction

away from the sea. As a result, the

baby turtles will die due to lack

of water and being exhausted.

Newly born turtles are weak but

they need to "take an adventure"

on the beach full of enemies such

as ants, craps, iguanas, dogs,

and cats. Even when they reach

the water and swim through the

shallow area, they are threatened

by big fish and hunting sea birds.

It is amazing that, although they

only spend a matter of hours on

the beach, turtles remember and

find the way back there to lay eggs

survive with pollution and human

poaching. Turtle eggs are believed

to be a nutritious food and a local

specialty. Sometimes, you will

even see some tourists innocently

ask volunteers on the beach to buy

some eggs ... to try eating! The

egg is as small as a ping-pong ball,

but its amount of cholesterol is 20

times higher than that of chicken

egg, an excess of which can lead

to heart attack or stroke. Sea

turtles are hunted to exhaustion

while their hatching environment

is devastated. That's why the

number of sea turtles in Con Dao

and other areas in Vietnam has

dramatically decreased.

This New Year, why don't we

make efforts to change this sad

fact, to build a peaceful "house"

with a healthy ecosystem so that

the little turtles can safely "find

their way home" after years of

living in the ocean? Protecting

sea turtles, witnessing turtle

mothers make nest to lay eggs,

and watching thousands of baby

turtles toddling to the sea are

amazing experiences.
