Heavenly island hopping in Coron

Heavenly island hopping in Coron

 When I was planning my Philippines itinerary, one of the most difficult parts was deciding where to go for the island hopping and the beaches. As I am more into nature, beaches not so much, I seriously considered going to Puerto Princessa in Palawan. It has been voted the 'Best Island in the World'. But then again, going from Puerto Princessa to El Nido would involve many hours of traveling overland. After consulting the locals on Facebook, I decided in favor of Coron because there is a direct flight from Manila. I highly recommend island hopping in Coron because of incredible views and great value for money.

Coron

Coron, home to numerous resorts that attract thousands of tourists year round, is a quiet town located southeast of the island of Busuanga. Busuanga Island is the largest island in the Calamian Group, in the province of Palawan. To the south, two other major islands of the Calamian Group are located: Culion Island and Coron Island.

How to become an expert of Riga’s Art Nouveau architecture in half an hour

How to become an expert of Riga’s Art Nouveau architecture in half an hour

If there is just one reason for visiting Riga, the capital of Latvia, it is the fact that the city has the finest and largest collection of Art Nouveau buildings in the world, with over 800 houses built in this style. More than 438 hectares of the historical Centre of Riga are inscribed onto the UNESCO World Heritage List, recognizing its great collection of outstanding Art Nouveau (Jugendstil) architecture. Janis Krastins, a professor of architecture, said: "In Brussels you pass one or two Art Nouveau buildings when you walk down the street, but here, Art Nouveau is everywhere you look." I am Latvian and sometimes I have a feeling that Latvians are too self critical and reluctant to praise their own country. With this photo essay I would like to make my contribution to advocating the beauty of my beloved Riga. How it all started The Art Nouveau golden age coincided with the city’s rapid economic growth in early 20 century. It was more than 10 years before the disastrous First World War.
