Have you ever been on a cruise? After hearing friends and colleagues sharing how much they enjoyed their cruise holidays, I have decided to put a cruise holiday on my travel list.
Some of the cruises they have been on include the one along the Nile, in Scandinavia, Alaska (going up-close to an iceberg), Mediterranean, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Langkawi, and Phuket. I once saw a documentary on the Yangtze River cruise. Awesome scenery of mountains and rivers that one.
There are many cheap cruises available if you know where to look. I hear watching the sun going down can be an unforgettable experience on a cruise ship especially on the ship's upper deck.
Sunsets must be one of nature's most beautiful wonders. They simply take your breath away, all that red and orange hues across the mesmerizing sky - nature's artwork at its best.
Colourful sunsets can be viewed all over the world but there are some places that are best for viewing sunsets. Over the ocean is one and the Andaman Sea must be one of the best places to view a sunset this side of the world.
Another great place would be at Australia's Ayers Rock or Uluru as it is known in its native language. Did you know that this sandstone formation turns red at sunset? It is actually due to the sun's rays passing through air particles that makes it the colour it is at sunset.
The desert with its sand-dunes would be another great place to view sunsets. Watching the sun set over Egypt's Great Pyramids would be awesome too. How about sunset over the Burj al Arab? That's beauty all around - the sky, the sea and a stylish hotel.
