On a Friday evening, we were sitting with a glass of Merlot and croissants discussing about plans for this month, when somebody mentioned that it’s been a while since we talked about Cultural Differences of any country, how about we write something in this month’s blog? Without a second thought, decision was made, France was the chosen one! Not sure whether settlement on France was due to the lovely evening or the beverages we were having that originated from this country. But whatever may be the reason, we are sure you will enjoy reading this article thoroughly.
“My goal is to run out of pages in my passport”
Okay, great..such quotes are seen on social media page of every other person whose hobby is travel. But what happens next? What after you actually run out of pages in your passport? What are you supposed to do then or with your old passport? Do you need it? Or should you just discard it? So many questions come up once you reach to that point, so much confusion but no clear answers. Today, we are trying to give clarity on some common doubts regarding old passport and why it is important to preserve it.
What is the next best thing that you can get after ‘Visa Free’ travel?…Yes, it is ‘Visa On Arrival’!
The most important difference between Visa Free entry and Visa On Arrival is that in Visa Free entry you can enter the country without a visa for a specified period of time called landing permission (usually); whereas in Visa On Arrival you need a visa to enter inside a country but can obtain it when you show up at the port of entry.
Visa On Arrival sounds like an easy-peasy stuff right? It indeed is! However, you need to keep certain things in mind before you opt for Visa On Arrival, or you may face a scenario where you are deported back to your homeland.
Bhutan is one of the smallest countries in the world, its cultural diversity and richness are overwhelming. As such, strong emphasis is laid on the promotion and preservation of its culture by Government and King of Bhutan. As a tiny country with a very small population the need to preserve culture and tradition automatically gets amplified, and people definitely support this motion.
What is the first thing that you need to plan an international trip?
Passport of course! You thought we’d say visa? We wanted to but then it would have been incorrect and giving you wrong information goes against the policy of this blog. However, we liked the way you thought (wink).
Bhutan, the happiest country in the world, officially known as Kingdom of Bhutan lies on Himalayas’ eastern edge. This landlocked country is known for its dzongs, monasteries and beautiful landscapes where Buddhist culture embraces the global development. Still untouched and untroubled by external influences, this country has a charm that can’t be described in words.
It is particularly difficult (read expensive) to travel to this Asian kingdom, but not for Indian nationals. Due to strong ties shared between Bhutan and India, Bhutan allows Indian passport holders to explore the surreal landscapes by providing direct entry permits on border towns and in Thimphu.
So how would we describe this fabulous country? The first word that comes to our mind is a melting pot of cultural fusion. The diversity in Australia will surprise and amaze you. From the city skylines to the suburban villas the adventures continue. Here smiles and greetings with such warmth is as common as auto-rickshaws in Mumbai. People are more laid back, and don’t be surprised to see shops closed with signs saying out surfing when the whether is great, coz that’s how the Aussies roll!
