“Vacation” – a single word to release all our stress, tension and anxieties! We all are busy in something or the other, some of us get involved in our occupation to earn money for living, some of us are busy into our daily household works to manage the place where we live and some of us are busy in study and building our future. All these important and compulsory parts of our life make our life a mess and claustrophobic.
In that very systematic lifestyle, a vacation comes as a sigh of relief where we can leave every burden and HAVE-TOs behind and enjoy to breathe the freshness. But only the vacations are not all, you need to be selective on the destination of your vacation. If you are a nature lover, the earth has a whole world of astonishment to offer you. You can find many of references to the vacation destinations in the in the best lifestyle channel but I am jotting down the topmost places where the land becomes the heaven.
MENDENHALL GARDENS IN JUNEAU, ALASKA
The ‘Upside Down Forest’ by the other name, Mendenhall Gardens in Juneau, Alaska is one of the most miraculously beautiful places all across the Globe. It seems like a quirky fairy tale with a twist – something coming straight out from the Tim Burton film! In the garden, almost 20 Spruce and Hemlock trees are inverted and turned upside down popularly called ‘Flower Towers’. The top of them are buried under the ground and the roots are in the air which shape beds for the baskets of flowers from budding petunias to begonias. Trees like Japanese Maples, Rhododendrons and Azaleas also have found their home here.
MU CANG CHAI RICE TERRACES, VIETNAM
