Follow in the footsteps of a real-life Indiana Jones to a citadel hidden in the mist of the Andean mountaintops. Machu Picchu is an awe-inspiring city at the heart of the fallen Inca Empire. These people forewent wheels, steel tools, or mortar to build, yet the settlement has held on through the ravages of time and earthquakes since the mid-14th century. Roam grassy plazas and fortified dwellings; and marvel at the pristine terraces carved into the peaks. Out-of-reach on its steep perch, Machu Picchu evaded discovery from even the Spanish conquistadors (soldiers and explorers) that wiped out the ancient kingdom. It would be hundreds of years later in 1911 before a local farmer, Melchor Arteaga, led Hiram Bingham III to the ruins. Bingham was a professor and explorer, much like the whip-wielding Indy would later be. Scholars to this day only infer the finer details of Machu Picchu, as the Incas did not use written language. Go ahead and channel your inner adventurer. Who knows what else you may discover here?

Come November, the US will go to the polls, and hopefully 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue will prepare to receive a new occupant. Even if you don't agree with the current incumbent's policies, DC is still an amazing place to visit any time of the year.

I do missed my change to visit this temple before, cause I didn’t check the time first.. so before you come here, make sure you check the time open and closed otherwise not waste your time. It’s freaking amazing temple, No doubt this is a must and the best sightseeing place in the whole of Bangkok. Every building is different. The level of detail on each and the gold used is stunning. As I know, I do visit a couple temple there, we must go inside barefoot.. Hopes to visit this temple next year. ❤️
