Arriving at the gate at 6:30am, I was extremley excited to see and explore this amazing place. I have been planning this trip for over ten years and the moment was finally here! After entering, the entire mountain range and ruins were covered in a...
Khajuraho, Madhya Pradesh 471606, India
For such an amazing place, Khajuraho was surprisingly tourist free. We went early to avoid the heat of the day, and found just a handful of devotees walking the temple grounds. Oh, and don't forget to keep your eyes peeled for the kama sutra...
Subhash Chowk Station road malakhera, Alwar, Rajasthan 301406, India
Neelkanth, meaning the blue-throated reincarnation of Lord Shiva, is located inside Sariska National Park, about 45 mins from Amanbagh (http://www.amanresorts.com/amanbagh/home.aspx). It situated on a plateau high in the hills and the drive up...
1 Tiantan E Rd, Dongcheng Qu, Beijing Shi, China
This complex of Taoist religious buildings was constructed in the early 15th century under the Yongle Emperor, who also commissioned the Forbidden City, just to the north. The temple's central building is the Hall of Prayer for Good Harvests, a...

Abu Al-Alaa Al-Maari St., Amman, Jordan
There's more to Jordan's food than falafel and shwarma (though those are pretty great). The national cuisine is classically Arab with plenty of mezze (small plates made for sharing) and kebabs, but with a few Jordanian specialties as well. A zarb...
Al Yarmuk St., Madaba, Jordan
They don't call Madaba the "mosaic city" for nothing. This small, relaxed town's heyday came in the Byzantine era when it prospered and became an important center of Byzantine art. Today, this heritage is everywhere you look, from the historic...
Amman Civil Airport، Al Mataar St 22، Amman, Jordan
Founded in 2010, Carakale is Jordan's first and only family-owned microbrewery. It began as a labor of love for master brewer Yazan Karadsheh, who has grown production from his family’s backyard to a hillside location by the old city of Fuheis. It...
Jabal Al Lweibdeh, Amman, Jordan
Artists have long flocked to Al Lweibdeh, which remains the preferred neighborhood of creative types, even as it admittedly gentrifies. My favorite lunch spot is Joz Hind. There’s no menu; Luca makes his creations from whatever seasonal, locally...
