Music Monsters
Like your accessories cute? Then you’re probably somewhat disappointed with the mobile speakers on offer right now, which generally ditch the cute in favour of the svelte. That’s not the case, though, with these Music Monsters, which hide all those wires inside graffiti-inspired toy figures. Each Music Monster speaker is housed in an ABS plastic shell measuring 7 x 5 x 4 centimeters. The rechargeable battery, which you can charge via USB, is good for up to four hours of playback. There’s no Bluetooth support, so you’ll have to connect it to your phone using a 3.5mm jack.

Guide books
Can’t decide on where to go travelling? It’s not so easy when you want a suitable place for the whole family. A guide book is a book for tourists or travelers that provides information such as geography, tourist sights, and recommended itinerarys. Now open your guide book and find a good place to travel to. Actually, it not only gives information on the destinations but also provides in-depth maps in case you get lost. Moreover, a guide book is vital if you travel abroad and forget everything. So don’t forget to pack a guide book when you are travelling abroad.

Home-stay at a natural resort
In Kampong Thom, tourists can enjoy a real taste of life in rural Cambodia. The Khmer village home-stay tourism experience is a unique community-based program that captures the essence of village life in the heartland of Cambodia. Tourists can visit ethnic houses, ride on a bull cart, watch farmers tap palm trees, learn silk weaving, and enjoy traditional dance performances. The communities of Baray District are fully involved in all the activities provided by the Khmer Homestay. When I visit there, I see how the profits made from the program have benefited the community - their children are able to attend school, and nutirtional standards are improving. Local students are given opportunities to perform cultural dances for tourists, which helps boost their self-confidence, encourages them to express themselves creatively and provides them with skills in teamwork.

Palm Islands
When I imagine sitting on this island, I dream that it is the most relaxing place in the world. The vastness of the warm sea surrounding the island makes me think of a stress-free, clean-aired paradise. The Palm Islands are an artificial archipelago in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, which contain both residential and commercial buildings. Each island is in the shape of a palm tree, topped with a crescent, and has a large number of residential, leisure and entertainment centers. I think this heavenly island is one of the wealthiest tourist destinations in the world: a place where the wealthy can enjoy their private leisure and activities.

  • ‘Life goes on’ if Cambodia loses Everything But Arms
