Kuil Kiyomizu-dera yang juga berarti kuil air murni (the temple of clean water), merupakan sebuah kuil megah yang terletak di daerah pegunungan Otowa. Berjarak tidak terlalu jauh dari pusat kota Kyoto, kuil ini menjadi salah satu warisan budaya Jepang dalam ilmu arsitektur dan bangunan. Bangunan utamanya dibangun dilereng gunung dengan 139 pilar tanpa pasak, metode ini sering disebut "kakezukuri". Untuk menjangkau bangunan utama, pengunjung harus berjalan kurang lebih 1 km dengan rute menanjak. Kios-kios kecil di sepanjang jalan membuat perjalanan kita menjadi tidak terlalu berat.
Gerbang Besar yang biasa disebut Deva Gate menyambut kedatangan kita di pintu masuk kuil. Melewati gerbang tersebut kita langsung disajikan Three-storied Pagoda yang menjulang dengan dominasi warna merah yang sangat memikat. Kita diharuskan membeli tiket masuk dengan harga 300 Yen atau sebesar Rp 33.000 untuk melanjutkan ke dalam bangunan utama kuil Kiyomizu-dera.
Sebenarnya pemandangan di bangunan utama tidak terlalu menarik, hanya teras yang dibuat menjorok ke tebing yang membuat kita dapat menyaksikan lereng gunung dengan jelas. Spot terbaik disini untuk menyaksikan kuil ini adalah dari Okuno-in atau kuil setelah bangunan utama Kiyomizu-dera.
Dari sini kita dapat menyaksikan kuil Kiyomizu-dera seperti yang ada di majalah travel atau internet. Bangunan kuil terlihat begitu indah ditemani dengan latar kota Kyoto yang terlihat sangat jelas.
Sayang beberapa bangunan didalam kuil ini sedang dalam perbaikan, namun tidak mengurangi keindahan kuil Kiyomizu-dera. Pantaslah kuil ini menjadi destinasi wisata utama di Kyoto (detik)
After five years, I made it back to #CDMX 🇲🇽! So here's the thing: my first trip, I left feeling like it was "Meh"-xico City. There was nothing wrong with my trip, but nothing truly outstanding. But after chatting with so many people who love it, I had to come back and try it again. I'm doing it all differently this time, not to mention I've changed over the years (and so has Mexico City). This is day 1 of 4...and I'm not sharing opinions until the very end. So here we go...let's see how compatible we are this time around!
When we are not traveling or writing about traveling, we’re searching for travel inspiration! Morocco was incredible, but now we can’t decide where we should go next. Where do you think we should go next? @lonelyplanet@natgeotravel@frommers@insightguides
Happy Lunar New Year! 🐲 Also called Spring Festival (and Chinese New Year, Korean Solnal, Tibetan Losar, among other names), this the celebration of the first new moon of the lunar calendar traditionally used in many parts of Asia. It is one of the main holidays in China, Taiwan, Korea, Japan, and Vietnam, among other countries.
Food and family are important parts of the holiday, which lasts 15 days. Photos here are of hot pot, a communal boiling pot of oily spiced broth where you cook vegetables, meat, and other things to eat as you go. Hot pot probably came to China from Mongolia around 1000 years ago and now has regional variations all through Asia. It's Chinese name directly translates as 'fire pot'. #funfacts#dyk
I've never seen escalators as long as they are in Bangkok! Being from London, our underground is full of them but they don't have a patch on BKK. It's no surprise that The Flip Flop Family take a seat!💺 It always amazes me to see how clean the transport lines are in Thailand. We could certainly learn a thing or two from them. No eating or drinking on any trains or platforms, it's absolutely spotless and runs seamlessly!🚅 What things are better abroad compared to your home country?😊
Cakes are special. Every birthday, every celebration ends with something sweet, a cake, and people remember.

The djellaba or Jillaba is a long, loose-fitting unisex outer robe with full sleeves that is worn in the Maghreb region of North Africa; its origin is Morocco. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Traditional Djellabas are generally made of two types of material, cotton for summer wear and coarse wool for the winter. The wool is typically obtained from sheep in the surrounding mountains. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

A communal oven is an oven that the community members share and use together. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In Morocco, using a communal oven to bake your bread and other baked goods is the norm especially in the of old part of town. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The ovens are ran by workers whose primary job is to bake the edible goods of the community in the large oven, the majority of which is bread. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Penny for my thoughts: fast fashion. Shopping is one of your guilty pleasures? Finding a solution to clothes shopping needs and a low waste lifestyle is really easy. Consider shopping in a thrift shop. I usually spend less than $5 at thrift stores and get a ton of nearly new clothes. The clothing industry is already one of the biggest contributor of CO2 emissions and yet most companies that sell cheap clothes that aren't sustainable and are made with harmful chemicals still continue to produce clothes made from textile or anything else that is environmentally harmful. You can eliminate all of this waste by repairing old clothes or thrift shopping used clothes 👍 Reusing garments also means less ending up in the landfill.

Met one of the busiest parts of the city for the first time in 4 years. Still, there is movement in every corner.
Kyoto’s historic Gion district is famed for its stone-paved alleyways with wooden machiya (townhouses), where kimono-clad geisha en route to entertain at local ochaya (traditional teahouses) are an everyday sight. In fact, visitors from other parts of Japan often visit the Gion district dressed in kimonos to show respect. But in recent years, travelers have reportedly been causing a ruckus trying to photograph the residents of this deeply traditional area, even trespassing on private property to get their ideal shot. Now, a fine has been implemented for anyone trying to take pictures of geisha in Gion. Learn more at the link in our bio. Photo by @nikkthequick. #afarmag#traveldeeper
Patagonia may seem just about as off-the-beaten-track as you can get, but we're here to tell you there's so much more to the region than the three jagged peaks towering over a turquoise lake in Torres del Paine. There are 310,000 square miles of steppes, forests, glacial fjords, and mountains in Patagonia. The region encompasses the southern cone of South America, which spans both Chile and Argentina and contains 27 national parks and another 30-plus local and provincial nature and cultural reserves. But most visitors beeline to Torres del Paine National Park for a firsthand look at its famous glaciated pinnacles, potentially missing out on the diverse wilderness and wildlife that the whole area has to offer.

After 5 days stranded at the airport hotel in Halifax and 9 days in transit, I’m finally home to my favourite person, a favourite view and this island which I’m deeply, deeply proud to have a home on.
There is still a state of emergency in St. John’s and it blows my mind that this is only a quarter of the snow left over from Friday’s blizzard.
