Amazon rainforest adventure travel in Peru at Jungle Treehouse Lodge Travel Video Transcript:

So we are staying in the coolest place ever. We have just arrived at the Treehouse Lodge in the middle of the Amazon jungle. And we're going to be living in a tree house for the next few days. So come along and I'm going to show you our personal private tree house. And we're living in a tree house! We're living in a treehouse!
Every kids dream.

Okay, well we want to show you more of the property but right now we're about to head out on a jungle walk. We're going to be looking for medicinal plants and learning about their uses. It also just started pouring rain. So it is time for our jungle expedition.

So Sam, you look like you're ready for a jungle excursion.
Show us your footwear. And here is the leaf that is used to make the Juane. The traditional food from the Amazon jungle here in Peru.

So we are back from the jungle excursion. Yeah, that jungle walk was awesome. We learned so much about all of the different local plants and what they are used for in terms of different medicinal properties and also for food. And now we're off on a cool boat trip. We're just going to be cruising down the Amazon and looking for pink dolphins. Yes and maybe we'll stick around for sunset too.

Macau look! So we just spotted a sloth up in the tree. We wouldn't have seen it if it wasn't for our guide though. And this is sunset on the Amazon river. So that is the end of day one. How are you feeling about sleeping in this tree house? Awesome. A lot of adventure.

Well, good morning it is the start of day two and it was sure raining last night. Like thunderstorms, the whole deal.

We're going to try and spot some wildlife. We went out for a little excursion this morning and we've been traveling upstream and now we've arrived at a prime location to fish piranhas. So Sam, how are you feeling about that? Feeling good because you're going to stick your fingers in and they're going to bite them, right?

So we've going to use this small fish. Oh! To feed the piranha.
You want to try to splash the water. That is the way how to attract the piraña. Splashing the water. Calling the piranha. Okay, so I'm going try my hand at fishing for piranhas. I've got the bait here. Right here. Let's do this. Our first piraña.

Look at the teeth on that sucker. Oh my gosh I would not want to be bitten by one of those. That is scary.

You got one! Show it to us. I finally caught one. It was a big one too.

There you go. Sam's first piranha. Look at that. Probably my 20th attempt and I was not going to give up until I got one.

Now it is time for lunch. We are having ceviche. Our favorite as an appetizer. Wow, look at that.

So we are about to go on one more excursion this evening but before we head out we want to show you the rest of the property. So let's go in search of some tree houses.

We are now entering the bamboo forest.

Oh! Are they fighting? Yeah. Squack. Alright, so Sam is going to feed a monkey. Yes, I've got my chunk of banana. Now time to throw it.

So right now we are trekking through the mud in search of giant lily pads.

So we are meeting a sloth that was apparently rescued by a family when it was really young. So it lives with them in the house and it is very sleepy and slow. So oh, but it has woken up. It is eating. Pablito? Pablito is having lunch.

Okay so this morning we went fishing for piranha and now we are having it for dinner.

This is part of our Travel in Peru video series showcasing Peruvian food, Peruvian culture and Peruvian cuisine.

印象澳門 Coloane 路環 - Macau One Minute (00090)

Coloane is one of the two main islands of the Macau Special Administrative Region, located directly south of Macau's other main island, Taipa (氹仔, Dàngzǎi), and east of Hengqin Island of Zhuhai in Guangdong province.

Coloane was known in Cantonese as Gau Ou Saan (九澳山, lit. Nine-inlet Mountain, transcribed in Portuguese as Ká-Hó) and Yim Zou Waan (鹽灶灣, lit. Salt-stove Bay). The Portuguese name Coloane is derived from the Cantonese pronunciation of Gwo Lou Waan (過路環, lit. Passing-road Ring).

路環是澳門的一個地方,是組成澳門的四大部份(區域)之一。

路環古稱鹽灣、鹽灶灣、九澳島或阿婆尾,因東北角之九澳灣與島上九澳山而得名。此外,路環的葡文為Coloane,音譯自該島的粵語古稱「過路灣」。

路環原為一個獨立島嶼,現已和氹仔和路氹城連成一體。

【Hong Kong Walk Tour】walking with Frank from TST Star Ferry to Mong Kok (2018-11-12)

Frank last day in Hong Kong with me, I hope everyone will enjoy this walking trip with him !!

-----------------------------
My name is Dennis. In 2009, I opened this channel to record or document this city. I know something is being changed in next decade(s), or I felt the change have began since 2003, no later in 2046. I want to, at least, save some kind of city life in video form instead of taken photo or written in words. I strongly believe that motion picture and sound recording are much better way to preserve and present in the future when young generation want to get know of Hong Kong.

In May of 2018, I wrote the following statement in below:
Hi everyone, thank you for supporting me in fulfilling my childhood dream of making videos.
My parents had always taken a tolerant attitude toward my “capricious”: whether my work is feasible and sustainable... and they never complained about it.
As my father just passed away in May, I am left with no choice but to give up my video making venture.
In Hong Kong where the cost of living is sky high, youtube video making is simply not sustainable by google adsense alone. The revenue produced is way too insufficient for affording a domestic helper, and I must look after my mom all by myself - this is why I must stay very close to her at all times.
Unless my revenue is closed to market rate, or my income can cover a domestic helper, otherwise I can hardly justify any video-related works.
Therefore, from now on everything video will be postponed in terms of year(s).
Thank you, and hope to see you all again in the future.

Because I am the only son of my mother in Hong Kong, and I have to take care of her at home. I almost give up this channel because of high consumption of time and living cost. But I found some extra time.
I live in Fanling, north part of New Territory, so it will include my showtime of traveling back and forth. Because of home care to my old mother, there will be no time other than 9:00 to 16:00 because my mother is staying at the senior daycare center, so before and after that, I will NOT able to do filming.
I understand most of you are looking for high quality of video, e.g. 4K or 8K. But hardware is so important at this post-production, that is, the higher quality video, the higher powerful computer to render video. Financial is my biggest issue, I can't afford to buy an expensive hardware right now. Even previous old 2K recorded video, it wasn't easy at all, one hour video = 1.5 hours of rendering time, plus uploading time. How about 1 hour 4K ? = 15 hour up......under my old computer. (please check )

I will continue to run this channel as long as the time is fit-on-me or I don't see any kind of video job could fit me.

I hope this is clear to everyone.

Greece Budget Guide — 9D Athens, Santorini, Meteora under S$1.5K (All-In!) | The Travel Intern

From scaling the Great Saint Rock (Meteora) to get to the top of the tallest rock in Meteora, to catching the Acropolis (Athens) in real life, to strolling along the streets of Oia (Santorini) and catching that classic sunset shot, here is our 9-day budget guide through Athens, Santorini and Meteora:


We spent under S$1.5K in total, including flights and accommodation. Greece doesn't have to be all that expensive!

00:08 - Scoot
Scoot flies direct from Singapore to Athens and back. We recommend getting the long-haul meal bundle from them.


ATHENS
00:19 - Acropolis
It's that feeling you get when you see your history textbooks come to life. You'll be able to spot the famous Parthenon columns on top of a large flat rock from almost anywhere in the city.

00:22 - Athena temple
Look out for the remains of the Theatre of Dionysus and a fully reconstructed Odeon of Herodes Atticus — a functioning stone theatre that hosts Greek as well as international performances between May – October.

00:23 - Ancient Agora
Here, you'll see the Stoa of Attalos and the Temple of Hephaestus. They are both reconstructed ancient buildings.

00:29 - Syntagma Square
Catch the guard changing ceremony that happens hourly at Syntagma Square. It is quite an interesting ceremony to catch!

00:30 - Psyri/Omonia Area
Find as many street art/murals in the Psyri area as you can!
00:34 - Food in Omonia Area
Check this restaurant out for super yummy food, it's name in Google Maps is Secret Underground Restaurant.
We downed 1.5L of wine straight out of barrels, a side of grilled fish, and a basket of bread, for only €20!

00:38 - Temple of Zeus
Today, less than 15 columns are standing, but it is believed that there used to be 104 columns in the past. We'll leave it up to your imagination!

00:42 - Monastiraki Area
We visited the Monastiraki Flea Market to get some souvenirs.


SANTORINI
00:53 - Oia Area
Explore the streets of Oia, and search for the ruins of an old Byzantine Castle in Oia!

00:59 - Red Beach
Take a dip in Red Beach, but to reach clearer waters, you will have to swim out quite a bit. It's crowded at all times of the day though.

01:02 - Oia Castle Sunset Point
It's also in Oia that everyone hopes to catch the perfect sunset shot of Santorini's classic whitewashed houses carved into clifftops overlooking the caldera filled with water.

01:11 - Amoudi Bay
For adrenaline junkies, be sure to go cliff jumping at Amoudi Bay! Super fun.

01:21 - Fira
Get around Fira on an ATV/scooter.

01:23 - Santo Wines
Head for a winery tour at Santo Wines. Book in advance though (only available online). You can also order a set of 6, 12, or 18 tasters along with the “Santorini” platter of Greek cheese, olives and breadsticks.

01:27 Skaros Rock
This place is our favourite sunset spot, over the Oia sunset spot ;-)

METEORA
01:35 - Sunset Tour with Visit Meteora
We found taking the Sunset Tour with Visit Meteora to be very informative and interesting. It starts from 4:30pm and ends around 9:30pm depending on when the sun sets.

01:42 - Restaurant Meteora
Have some local cuisine here at Restaurant Meteora, slightly pricier but yummy, yummy food! We had two meals here. It's that good :-)

01:50 - Scrambling Tour with Visit Meteora
We scaled the Great Saint Rock, the tallest rock in Meteora, during our Scrambling Tour with Visit Meteora. Again, for all the adrenaline junkies out there! You also get to marvel at the pro rock climbers along the way as well.


Apart from Singapore to Athens, Scoot now also flies direct to Berlin from Singapore! Check our Berlin videos out as well! :-)

HONG KONG RED LIGHT DISTRICT JORDAN | HONG KONG NIGHTLIFE

#redlightdistrict #hongkong #jordan #templestreet
Welcome to the Hong Kong Red Light District Jordan, in Kowloon. There are a few Red Light District areas in Hong Kong and Jordan is one of them. Hong Kong's Red light districts are more discreet than other countries as it is legal. Our video is shot in Ultra HD 4K, crystal clear quality, as if you are actually here.

'Jordan (Chinese: 佐敦) is an area in the Yau Tsim Mong District of Hong Kong. It is named after a road of the same name in the district. Jordan is located in the central part of the Yau Tsim Mong District. The western portion is officially known as Kwun Chung (官涌), especially before the MTR metro system went into service in 1979.

Jordan is considered as the area surrounded by Kansu Street to the north, Gascoigne Road and Jordan Path to the east, Austin Road to the south and Ferry Street to the west. This would make Jordan approximately 1-square-kilometre (0.39 sq mi) in size with a population of about 150,000.

Like most of southern Kowloon, Jordan is entirely developed and urbanised other than a few small parks. Motor and pedestrian traffic throughout most of the day is very dense.

Jordan is a microcosm of working-class Hong Kong. Like nearby districts of Mong Kok and Tsim Sha Tsui, large sections of Jordan hosts a mix of older residential high-rises, office buildings, street markets, hotels, eateries and an almost infinite variety of small shops. There are also seedy sections containing karaoke, hostess bars and massage parlours although the seediness is mild compared to nearby Mong Kok. Jordan is also home to a large collection of Indians, Pakistanis, Nepalese and other ethnic minorities.

Although Jordan lacks the sights and comforts to support mass mainstream tourism, it still attracts a small cadre of adventurous tourists interested in experiencing authentic working-class life in Hong Kong. For locals, many live in Jordan for its relatively affordable housing, its centralised location on the spine of Hong Kong's transportation network and its diverse cultural flavour.

The following noteworthy places are located in Jordan:

Southern segment of the Temple Street Market
Jade Market
Several prominent hotels including Novotel Nathan Road Kowloon Hong Kong, Eaton Hotel Hong Kong, Nathan Hotel, and the Mayfair Garden Hotel
Kwun Chung Street Market
King George V Park
Northern entrance to Kowloon Park
Diocesan Girls' School.'

China: World Factory and next football country?

China is the world´s factory. Now China sets up new industries and dreams of a football World Cup final. Is China, the world´s factory also the next football country? And what kind of industry is the world´s factory next big bang? A matter of fact China invests more than any other country in its football national league. Is this the beginning of a new area in football history?

Photographer Ruben Terlou travels with his camera through the heart of China, from north to south. On his journey he tries to find out what it´s like to live and work in today´s China. What is the future of China? What do ordinary people see as valuable in their life and what is important to them?

In the sixth episode Ruben travels to the area where thirty years ago China´s rise as the 'Factory of the World' has begun. This is where 35 years ago a political U-turn was made in state policy. The Chinese were able to make money and they lost no time doing so. Everything that has a plug contains a part that comes from China. And everything that´s marketable is made her.

With the same explosive drive, China also wants to reach the World Cup before 2050. At least, that is the mission of President Xi Jinping. But is it realistic that China is reaching the World Cup final? Although Ruben is not yet impressed by the football talent of China, he is full of enthusiasm with 60,000 fans in the stadium as Evergrande for the seventh time in a row become champions. He also manages to visits the gigantic training complex for young talents.
