My friends and I enjoyed a wonderful Korean pancake, a chef Waygu tasting plate for each person, potato's, and the grilled egg plant (the star dish of the evening). We also enjoyed some cocktails that our waitor Arden suggested which paired perfectly with the meal.” - maxamil432 https://twitter.com/SERCatalunya/status/1663924210450808832?s=20 Noodle In A Haystack “All dishes were fantastic! Best chawanmushi and ramen I've had by far! Atmosphere is also very nice, great music, intimate setting, courses came out promptly. The chefs and Pearl were so inviting, informative, and are very genuine people! My husband and I had a great time here and would definitely recommend!” - Monica M. https://twitter.com/tablehopper/status/1522001720552742912?s=20 Maty’s “This is a Peruvian Restaurant, very well located. With diverse plates oriented on oriental food with international touch. The attention its very good and the food... No comments. Great and delicious. Is a place to enjoy with friends or family.” - Joseodalisortiz https://twitter.com/TheWhetPalette/status/1700931551301668928?s=20 Molotov Kitchen + Cocktails “Exceptional food, nice ambiance. Lovely service. We were so sad to see To The Wind close after so many years. (It was beyond terrific.) But Molotov is carrying the torch! Really one of the few truly good places to dine in Denver.” - C R. https://twitter.com/cheryltiu/status/1635382755994509312?s=20 Prik Hom “ This tiny restaurant is away from the usual tourist trail in Patong. Located in a Teak House on Nanoi Rd it's a little hard to find - well worth the effort. The restaurant seats around 12 people. For a small place there's lots to choose from on the menu. The salty stir fried pork is delicious, as is the fried rice. Delicious food prepared to order. This isn't a fast food place, so be prepared to sit and relax with a drink while your meal is cooked - it's worth the wait.” - JocelynC885 https://twitter.com/HungryOnionSF/status/1629616622313848833?s=20 Quarter Sheets “Ok yes this placed lives up to the hype. The wait may be long but it is so worth it. The Bianca was definitely a crowd favorite and the crust is so perfectly salty and crispy. Will be coming back soon!” - Archeta R. https://twitter.com/Gennefer/status/1568459081299673101?s=20 La Diabla Pozole Y Mezcal “Our friends and ourselves had a fantastic late lunch there today. From the Pozole to the ceviche to the guacamole, the tacos and the Margarites, everything was EXCELLENT! The service was fast and friendly and the prices were very reasonable.” - Dan07030 https://twitter.com/GovofCO/status/1697369092598948016?s=20 In Bocca Al Lupo “We were very delighted with all the experience. The food was so delicious and well presented that we ate four times here, in the evening, on a very nice atmosphere. The prices are affordable, we spent around 50 euros on two mains (lamb and ravioli), a memorable desert and two drinks (a glass of sangria and a martini). Thank you for the lovely gourmet experience!” - Mihaela A https://twitter.com/thesilverbow/status/1679504504172040199?s=20 Yess “LA's most under rated restaurant. Chef Junya Yamasaki is a master of his craft, serving a one of a kind dining experience. I've been here three times, and every single time the menu has been different, crafted around seasonal ingredients and his catch of the week.” - Menooa Z. https://twitter.com/F2Consort/status/1334412726764888065?s=20 Ore Hill “Very unique restaurant... really different menu, but something for everyone. We wanted pizza...it was great! The location is great. Outside atmosphere is really nice. Great, friendly staff” - Kim Z https://twitter.com/insider_ct/status/1704176431675195804?s=20 Keep Reading: National Taco Day: How To Celebrate If You Are From Chicago Maldives And Bora Bora Among Top 10 Tourists Spots In The World

Juneau’s Mendenhall Glacier Recreation Area Is Expecting Big Changes

BY Sarmind SafiDec 20, 2023

With nearly a decade passed, the U.S. Forest Service has finally made a decision to overhaul Juneau's Mendenhall Glacier Recreation Area. The project has provoked hundreds and thousands of public comments from the Juneau community over the years. Alexandra Pierce, the city's tourism manager, says, “I like to see a plan that’s well managed and that listens to residents’ concerns. People didn’t want to see motorized boats on the lake and additional visitor center facilities and the Forest Service listens to the public on that, which is a positive thing.” The newly finalized plans include a new welcome center and other improvements to the old one. The plan is also set to increase parking, expand the trail systems, add an amphitheater and new public-use cabins. The glacier is one of the most visited tourist attractions. Forest service officials say the improvements will be helping in the management of the pressure with Juneau's rapid growth in cruise ship tourism that has increased in the recent years. When the visitor center was established in the 1960s, the area saw 23,000 visitors annually. Currently, about 700,000 visitors come to the glacier every year. The Forest Service is estimating that by 2050 this number could reach a million. But with more visitors the glacier has been moving away and even more so due to climate change. In a few decades the glacier will not likely be visible to the current visitor center at all. Pierce said that listening to the concerns of the people about overcrowding while also being aware that the tourism sector is an ever-growing field makes managing the area a constant balancing act. Pierce said, “I do think that’s a difficult puzzle for the Forest Service to try to solve. I think we’re all concerned about the receding glacier and what that means for the visitor experience in our community.” Read Also: Celebrations Have Begun At Oaga, Art Resort, Maldives: Report Kenya Is Targeting 5.5M Tourist Arrivals By 2028 Burger King Is Giving Away Free Food All Month

Zanzibar Or Oman: Which Do The Hungarian Tourists Like?

BY Sarmind SafiNov 14, 2023

Oman and Zanzibar are now two of the most popular destinations for tourists of Hungary, especially in the New Year time. Both countries are visited mainly by couples and adults. The number of tourists visiting the two spots have recordedly increased sevenfold. The beginning of the winter season has come late crossing over from the long, mild autumn, onto the winter. Bookings for the end of the year are now open. But what can you expect in the winters of these two countries? Although Turkey, Egypt, and the Canary Islands are perennial favorites, they are also frequented all year. The holiday bookings in the autumn months has increased by 27-28% in the last year. Regardless of family status and the calendar, and looking at the cold seasons in general – October to April – Egypt, Turkey, and the Canary Islands are competing with Zanzibar and the United Arab Emirates for the top spot. At the end of the season, it will be interesting to see how this year’s new hit, Oman, finally shifts the ranking. In the autumn-winter period, the majority of travelers spend eight to nine days away, and 76% of trips opt for all-inclusive or ultra-all-inclusive for these days. 55% of those who travel at this time of year are in the 40-59 age group: for them, such a trip is also about self-care, whether it is about preparing for the end-of-year drive or relaxing. Most people travel on Fridays and Sundays, the fewest on Mondays.
