Record-breaking, 1,140-meter-long waterslide to open in Malaysia – KAVU

Record-breaking, 1,140-meter-long waterslide to open in Malaysia – KAVU

The downside to waterslides? The effort usually always exceeds the reward, at least where time’s concerned.
You climb dozens of steps to reach the slide’s entry point, huffing and puffing your way to the top, only to find yourself floundering about in the exit pool mere seconds later.
This won’t be the case with a new waterslide being built in Malaysia right now.
Stretching a whopping 1,140 meters (3,740 feet) long, the ride is now under construction at Penang’s ESCAPE theme park and looks set to smash the record for “world’s longest waterslide.”
Due for completion at the end of July, it will open to the public sometime in mid-August, staff tell CNN Travel .
A four-minute jungle ride
The current holder of the Guinness World Records longest waterslide certificate is in Action Park, a theme park in Vernon, New Jersey. It measures 601 meters in length.
But unlike the New Jersey version, which is inflatable, ESCAPE’s new slide is made of fiber-reinforced polymer and will be a permanent structure attached to steel poles.
“Breaking the world record was never our intention,” said Sim Choo Kheng, CEO of ESCAPE operator Sim Leisure Group, in a statement. “I’m always baffled by how rides are made so short and quick. I wanted to build rides that last a good few minutes.”
Once open, the slide will offer a four-minute ride that snakes its way down a 70-meter slope, passing through jungle scenery.
Huffing and puffing won’t be part of the experience either. Visitors will access the slide via a cable car chairlift.
Bringing the global spotlight to Penang
The island of Penang, off the western coast of Malaysia, is more famous for culture and cuisine than thrills.
George Town, the island’s main city, is its top draw thanks to a colorful mix of cultures that includes Hindu and Buddhist temples, street art, Islamic mosques, British colonial architecture and ornate Chinese manor houses.
Penang is also considered one of the world’s top food destinations, thanks to the presence of delicious Malay, Chinese and Indian cuisine that includes dishes like Hokkien mee (fried prawn noodles) and Penang laksa.
ESCAPE is about 30 minutes from George Town and offers a variety of adventure activities including waterslides, ziplines and obstacle courses.

One of the best vacation spot I've ever been to

I have just returned from my 14 days stay at Sultan Sands hotel, and I must say it was one of the best holiday spot I’ve ever been to. Starting with very obvious thing – it’s situated by the most beautiful beach, so the views are stunning. Hotel itself is a quiet one, which i absolutely prefer comparing to the big and loud ones. I didn’t miss any animation program, as it simply is not needed. There is always and evening show that can get you closer to the african culture, but it’s not too long, and everyone e enjoyed watching it. You need to be ready to live by “pole pole” rule, everything is running slowly, but in this place, there is simply no need to rush! The hotel is also very clean, room is being maintained at least two times a day, first before late afternoon, when it’s cleaned and the bed is made, than in the evening, when your bed is being prepared ready for you to sleep in it. Now I must mention food. To me, it was absolutely spot on. Everyone could find something that they would enjoy. I personally loved all of it, starting with fantastic morning omlettes, live cooking pasta, that was just perfect, lots of sea food and meets. Big influence of Indian and Asian cuisine, buty twisted a little in an african way – perfect use of spices, which Zanzibar is famous of. The staff is always happy and smiling, happy to make small conversation. Now the cherry on the cake is the hotel manager – Dass. I’m working a lot with hotel managers, and I must say – everyone should learn from him! He meets and greets eery single guests personally, he is always around and visible, always happy to attend any issues that guests could have. Always smiling and always with a solution. I’ve never experienced such personalised attitude anywhere in the world. Thanks to him everyone feels very special, and he will always walk this extra mile to make sure his guests are happy. nSultan Sands is definitely a location I’d come back to, and the sooner the better! I highly recommend it!

Review: Park Hyatt Chennai (Park Executive Suite)

4 Comments The Park Hyatt Chennai turned out to be my favorite Hyatt property we visited in India. Not only did I enjoy a wonderful suite upgrade, but great food and great service.
We arrived from Goa in the evening and took a taxi to the hotel, located about 20 minutes away. Check-in was a breeze and an associate informed me that I had been upgraded to a Park Executive Suite .
I loved the spacious, open lobby and common areas. Park Hyatt Chennai Suite
Our suite had a large living room witch couch, desk, bookcase, and floor-to-ceiling windows. The bedroom included a king bed and chair and the oversized bathroom featured a jacuzzi tub and best of all, a heated toilet seat with bidet.
Since I still kept U.S. working hours, the living room became particular valuable to ensure I did not disturb Heidi while she was sleeping.
Coffee/tea service in the suite’s living room:
View from the room: Park Hyatt Chennai Dining
I especially enjoyed the dining experience at this hotel, which centered on two great meals in particular. Dinner in The Flying Elephant Bar
After getting settled, it was already after 8:00 PM and Heidi wasn’t hungry, so I just ate in the hotel bar the first evening. The Flying Elephant has a mix of food, including North Indian, Southeast Asian, Middle Eastern, and Italian. How’s that for a mix of cuisine? I had a beef kabob…it hit the spot. Sunday Brunch in The Flying Elephant
The next morning we got up early to do some sightseeing, but returned for Sunday Brunch, which seems to attract many locals. The brunch offers a taste of everything, but you know wha turned out best? The stone oven pizza. The fish was also very tasty…and the desserts were decadent. Beyond Madras in The Dining Room
The following evening, we tried the Beyond Madras menu at the Dining Room. You can see the menu below. Once again, another tasty menu. Breakfast
The morning breakfast buffet was super not just for its quantity, but its quality. I appreciated the fresh-squeezed juices and smoothies and almond-covered French Toast. Park Hyatt Chennai Spa + Fitness
We splurged a bit for massages, which were masterfully done. I am rarely willing to pay up for a massage at a luxury hotel, but it was a nice treat on a warm afternoon.
The fitness center offers great views and late-model equipment. CONCLUSION
For this review in particular, I think the pictures mostly speak for themselves, hence the more limited dialogue. I appreciated the warm service, great food, and comfortable accommodations at this hotel. It is rare that I do not offer at least some constructive criticism about a property, but this was about as close to a perfect stay as possible.

AL BALEED RESORT SALALAH

Skip the summer heat and head directly to Khareef
Vacations are about doing something new, and switching up your routine. This year we’re up for something completely different than our annual summer beach vacation. While we love chilling on white sandy beaches and enjoying the sound of lapping waves we are always ready to get out of our comfort zone to avoid the dreaded holiday ennui, so we’re skipping summer and heading for our favorite season, fall.
Every year from late June to the end of September, the Dhofar Province in Oman undergoes an amazing transformation known locally as “Khareef.” A colloquial term meaning ‘fall’ in Arabic, Khareef refers to a fascinating weather pattern in which the coastal fringe of Dhofar experiences a run-in with the Indian Ocean’s monsoon season.
The weather is much cooler with temperatures rarely rising above 27°C. But it’s not just about escaping the heat, the vibe changes, and the locals consider it to be the best time of the year. Salalah Camels – Photo courtesy of Al Baleed Resort Salalah by Anantara
This is true, especially for tourists like us, who stepped onto the plane in Kuwait where the sun is scorching. Once at Salalah, the air is balmy, and the weather will surprise you with periods of drizzling and rain along with mist and fog. The Dhofar Province makes up almost a third of Oman’s land area and boasts an impressive and diverse biosphere. Hundreds of kilometers of coastline seamlessly blend into mountains and deserts.
With mountains reaching up to 1,500 meters and an abundance of rain in Khareef, you will be amazed by the waterfalls cascading down and forming giant pools of turquoise water.
You will marvel at the thick, lush, vibrant green vegetation blanketing the landscape as far as the eye can see. It is no surprise then that the city of Salalah has been named the 2019 Capital of Arab Summer resorts by The Arab Tourism Organisation.
Al Baleed Resort Salalah by Anantara matches nature’s gift of beauty with luxury and class for an unforgettable stay. The architecture was inspired by ancient coastal villages and reflects Oman’s heritage and history. Carved wooden doors, white-washed buildings and traditional flat roofs are just some of the elements that pay homage to the rich culture. Shaat – Photo by Arjun S Unnithan
Guests will love staying in one of the 88 private pool villas featuring one or two bedrooms. The resort even has a Royal Beach Villa offering three bedrooms, prime ocean views, a large terrace and a 40 sqm private pool.
Travelling with young children can be challenging but the resort takes care of the little ones for you. A dedicated kids club provides a safe and creative environment for imaginations to run wild.

Travelling suitcase: Best food forward

Facebook sees its salvation with its cryptocurrency Libra Eatymology: Grilled whole prawns; (top) a spice souq. (Source: Romain Maitra)
A trip to Dubai, the city with a surfeit of attractions, is never devoid of sensory delights. Its skyline studded with high-rises and architectural marvels, including the world’s tallest structure, the intricate network of flyovers, luxury hotels, expansive state-of-the-art malls, beaches, traditional souqs, surfs and a vibrant nightlife make the city a haven for sightseers, shopaholics and vacationers. Another facet that draws many to the largest and most populous city of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) is food. Advertising
The richness and variety of the cuisines on offer in Dubai owes itself to expatriates of over a hundred nationalities that comprise nearly 80 per cent of the UAE’s population, with most of them living in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. This means that you can find cuisine from almost every part of the world in Dubai. It is precisely this singular aspect that Dubai now wishes to highlight, projecting the city to its visitors and tourists as a gastronomical melting pot. During a recent trip to Dubai, it was this aspect that I explored in all earnest.
I wanted to experience the city through its delicacies and fares. And, luckily, Dubai Food Festival, held between February 21 and March 9, coincided with my trip. During my previous trip to Dubai several years ago, I was part of a group of visitors invited to experience a phenomenal three-hour-long lecture-cum-tasting tour on the Arab and Iranian cuisines by Arva Ahmed and Farida Ahmed, sisters and co-founders of Frying Pan Adventures, a food and culture tourism venture. The trail took us through different streets and lanes in the oldest part of the city, and included a visit to Meena Bazar, Dubai’s “little India” known for Indian cuisines. Another delectable experience I had on that occasion was a presentation on, and my devouring of, Arab dishes. It was organised by the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding.
No encounter with gastronomy could be complete in Dubai without a visit to the spice souq (market). Located in the old district of Deira, the souq area consists of a main passage and several narrow lanes, which were all lined with stores on both sides, displaying neatly arranged rows of colourful and aromatic spices for sale. I could identify sesame, saffron, turmeric, nutmeg, clove, cinnamon, cumin, caraway, allspice, black pepper, sumac, aniseed, dried chilies and so on, as well as prepared varieties of ras el hanout (mixture of spices, like garam masala in India), sumac (dried and powdered sumac plants) and za’atar (mixed condiment of savory dried herbs like thyme, oregano, sumac and several others). Along with these, there were dry fruits, tea, medicinal herbs, and all kinds of incense. The area being a tourist hub, the stores there were also stacked with souvenir items, like densely decorated plates and pots, textiles, rugs, footwear, and so on. Advertising
The food festival’s flagship event at the al fresco Swyp Beach Canteen on the Sunset Beach was ideal for a family day out. The free-to-the-public enclosure featured new food concepts through live cooking sessions with local and regional chefs while food trucks offered a multinational array of street-style dining and beverages. From one of these trucks, I ordered the Mediterranean quinoa, mixed with feta, red grapes, basil, olives, cucumber, tomato and lettuce with lemon oil dressing. In dessert, I munched freshly-baked, crispy pistachio baqlawa, layered with syrup stirred in mixed orange and lemon juice.
Following a tour through the fish hospital at Atlantis, The Palm, I visited the bar and restaurant at the hotel and relished moules marinières with garlic and parsley cream, grilled whole prawns with parsley and garlic butter and ‘nutty professor’, a concocted milkshake containing Toblerone milk chocolate, Nutella, almond milk, honey, cream, and ice cream.
Nightjar, the official roastery for some of the city’s top indie coffee spots, has a full-fledged eatery in the heart of Dubai’s creative hub, Alserkal Avenue in Al Quoz. I went to a neighbouing coffee shop, and tried a “limited edition” vegan latte which had almond milk in nutty flavour.
These encounters and experiences were suffused with the joviality of people from different races and regions. I came back, satiated, and enriched, having picked up droll alimentary phrases like “I scream”, “Donut judge me”, and “See you spoon. Have a spice day!”

Modi, who is in Osaka, Japan to attend the G20 Summit, outlined that India is going to be a billion users of this technology and in that sense India is the second largest market in the world.
During the meeting on the sidelines of the G20 Summit, the two leaders discussed the technical and business opportunities that 5G provides for cooperation between India and the US.
“The way India moves or the way whatever choices India makes will essentially determine the way the global trend will go. And therefore the Prime Minister said it is important that we collaborate. India and the US in this regard to see how we can leverage this, the billion Indian users, India’s capacity in technological development in start-up and design and silicon valley and its role in developing 5G technology for mutual benefit,” Foreign Secretary Vijay Gokhale briefing media after the talks.
President Trump welcomed the idea and spoke about the work that American companies are now doing in 5G, Foreign Secretary said.
Trump specifically referred to Silicon Valley and said that since he had taken over as the President of US he has focused on this area, on developing America’s capabilities in technology, he said.
“President Trump said that he look forward to working with us and it was again decided to continue the conversation through meetings at technical level as well as at the level of the Secretaries of State and External Affairs Minister on our side and the technical ministers on both side,” Gokhale said.
“So, essentially the Prime Minister’s real focus was on Make in India and the potential that this huge technology has in that goal or objective,” he said.
Earlier, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Wednesday speaking at India Policy’ speech in New Delhi suggested that Japan, America and India can collaborate on 5G, the fifth generation cellular network technology that provides broadband access.
The US has banned Huawei, the world’s leader in telecom equipment and the number two smartphone producer, over concerns of security and Washington has been pressuring other countries to restrict the operations of the Chinese telecom firm.
India, however, is yet to take a call on whether it intends to place curbs on Huawei or allow the Chinese telecom giant to participate in the upcoming 5G trials, that are scheduled to commence in 100 days.
The US has been pressurising India to ban the Chinese company from its 5G development and deployment on the back of security concerns of Chinese surveillance on these networks.
The US had banned Huawei’s products on May 21 and also barred US companies from supplying software and components to the Chinese company. Meanwhile, Australia and New Zealand have also banned Huawei from participating in their 5G trials.
Huawei has urged India to make an “informed and independent decision” on permitting its 5G trials in the country as the Chinese telecom giant reeled under pressure following the US ban.
Huawei Monday said it is ready to sign “no back door” agreement with the Indian government to discourage espionage, and other companies should also follow suit.
Huawei’s business engagement in India is under scrutiny by the government after the US restricted hardware as well as software supplies to it.
The telecom department had come up with security guidelines in 2011 that mandated telecom operators to install certified equipment and devices in their network to ensure they are free from malicious softwares or bug. PTI

India is a deep-dive destination, where the cultural experience has the potential to overwhelm you. But with that intensity comes a vibrancy that can’t be matched anywhere else in the world. Furthermore, India is one of the world’s great cultural destinations. It is one of the cradles of civilization, with ancient landmarks and historical wonders dating back thousands of years. It’s the birthplace of four of the world’s greatest religions and home to some of the most impressive temples in the world. It has massive cities, gorgeous landscapes, deep jungles, and some of the best food in the world. For Globetrotters, the ultimate way to experience India’s culture is on Goway’s exclusive Holiday of a Lifetime, Splendours of India.
Suggested Itinerary: 17-Day Splendours of India: Holiday of a Lifetime World-Class Landmarks on an Exclusive Holiday of a Lifetime
You don’t need to be familiar with the Goway brand to know that a Holiday of a Lifetime is a special experience. These high-end journeys take travellers on small-group vacations to some of the world’s most popular destinations. They feature first-class or deluxe accommodations and guided tours that include both local experiences and visits to popular landmarks. Each tour group is led by a handpicked tour guide that handles all the little details like vehicle transfers and tipping restaurant and hotel staff, while also ensuring your needs are met throughout your journey. Every Holiday of a Lifetime comes with Goway’s “Promise of Something Special,” which is what it sounds like: a guarantee that this will truly be a vacation you remember for the rest of your life.
The 17-day Splendours of India: Holiday of a Lifetime begins in Mumbai , the largest city in the country, where you’ll deep-dive into the hustle of modern India. There’ll be a bit of culture shock at the size of the crowds and the pace at which life moves here, but you’ll adjust quickly, especially as you take in highlights around the city. A full-day tour will showcase both the new and old parts of the city with stops at the University of Mumbai, the open-air laundromat of Dhobi Ghats, Mani Bhavan, where Mahatma Gandhi stayed while in town, and the Gateway of India, the massive stone arch on the waterfront.

Fly into Rajasthan and connect to Udaipur , often considered the loveliest city in India . Tour the City Palace, the lavish home of the Maharajah and which is the largest palace in the state. You’ll then experience the city’s gorgeous lake culture with a boat ride across Lake Pichola. Drive northwest to Jodhpur, located in the Thar Desert. Admire the 1,440 marble pillars of the Ranakpur Jain Temple, visit the massive fort of Mehrangarh, and see the white marble memorial of Jaswant Thada. You’ll then venture into the desert for a jeep safari and visit the Bishnoi villages, where you’ll meet the Bishnoi, who practice a strict form of Hinduism that forgoes meat and alcohol and protects the environment at all costs. For the Bishnoi, even cutting down trees is forbidden. City Palace and Pichola Lake in Udaipur
From Jodhpur, head to Jaipur , the Pink City, where you’ll explore the gorgeous Amber Fort. A city tour will also take you to the Palace of Winds, with its many-windowed façade, the City Palace, and the Jantar Mantar Observatory. Leave the city behind and head into Ranthambore National Park to go on safari for a couple of days. Each day, you’ll head on dawn and dusk game drives in the jungle to spot the colourful birds and search for tigers in the wild.
Board the Shatabdi Express and ride to Agra , stopping off at the ghost city of Fatehpur Sikri along the way. In Agra, you’ll visit India’s most famous icon, the Taj Mahal, the marble mausoleum that beguiles all who see it in person. Cap off your time in the city with a trip to Agra Fort as well as the orphanage that used to be run by Mother Teresa.
Fly to Delhi and connect to Varanasi , the country’s most sacred city. Sitting on the banks of the River Ganges , Varanasi is the spiritual heart of India. Start with an excursion to nearby Sarnath where Buddha preached his first sermon after gaining enlightenment. Then visit a local museum and cap off the day with an evening rickshaw ride to see the ghats and witness the Aarti Ceremony that lights up the banks of the river with light offerings. The following morning, board a river vessel to cruise along the river and visit the cremation ghats, where devout followers cremate their loved ones in the river.

The final stop on your Splendours of India tour is Delhi, which consists of Old Delhi and New Delhi, the capital of India . Start with a tour of Old Delhi where you’ll see the Red Fort and Jama Masjid Mosque, ride a rickshaw through the marketplace of Chandni Chowk, and stop by Raj Ghat, where Ghandi was cremated following his assassination. Then venture into New Delhi to see India Gate, the Presidential Palace, the Mughal masterpiece of Humayun’s Tomb, and Qutub Minar, a towering minaret that’s the symbol of the city. You’ll then return home with memories to last a lifetime.
Suggested Itinerary: 17-Day Splendours of India: Holiday of a Lifetime India’s Unbeatable Culinary Legacy
It may be impossible to pick any one thing as a highlight of a trip to India , but you’d be forgiven for thinking the food trumps everything else. As a result of the country’s cultural diversity, Indian cuisine is as varied as any in the world. A Splendours of India: Holiday of a Lifetime reflects this diversity by including varied culinary experiences that showcase both the high-end dining scene as well as humble home cooking. Each region has its own specialties, so as you journey across the country, you’ll experience new flavours and ways of cooking food. Tandoori chicken
In Mumbai, you kick things off with a welcome dinner at Khyber Restaurant, which is popular with locals and visitors alike. Located in the heritage district and frequented by celebrities like Paul McCartney and Richard Gere when they’re in town, Khyber is a gorgeous place to experience the cuisine of the northwest frontier province. The Tandoori Raan, which is a leg of lamb cooked in a tandoor, is especially recommended. You’ll also experience world-class restaurants in Udaipur and Varanasi. In Udaipur, visit the Ambrai Restaurant at the Hotel Amet Haveli, which overlooks Lake Pichola and offers tandoor dishes in as romantic an atmosphere as possible. In Varanasi, you’ll dine at the Great Kabab Factory, which showcases kebab styles from all over the world.
Of course, part of the appeal of India is connecting with the locals, who maintain a celebrated heritage of culinary traditions. In Jaipur, you’ll visit Sankotra Haveli, the mansion of a local noble family, where you’ll enjoy a set menu and get to interact with your hosts, experiencing an authentic Indian welcome. Similarly, in Agra you’ll enjoy high tea with a local family, where you can chat with your hosts over snacks and drinks and gain insight into the local way of life. Women can even enjoy some Henna painting after tea. The combination of local encounters and dinners at world-class restaurants is a part of what makes the Splendours of India: Holiday of a Lifetime so special.

It’s impossible to overstate how unique Indian culture is. There’s nothing like it anywhere in the world. And due to the sheer number of ethnic and regional heritages that play into Indian culture, it’s impossible to define it as one unchanging thing. Part of the appeal of an Indian vacation is experiencing a taste of this diverse nation and the profound cultural traditions that define it.
Few things have more sway over Indian life than religious festivals. Luckily, the Splendours of India: Holiday of a Lifetime has departure dates that coincide with two of the biggest festivals in the country: Holi and Diwali. In 2020, Holi falls on March 10th, when travellers are in Jaipur on their holiday of a lifetime. They’ll experience the bright bursts of colour that define Holi in one of India’s loveliest cities. Similarly, Diwali falls on November 14th, also when the tour is in Jaipur. This festival of lights is arguably the biggest festival in the country, and seeing the Pink City transformed into a glowing sea of lights is breathtaking.

Even if you don’t visit during these festival periods, you’ll experience a taste of India’s intense culture. For instance, a rickshaw ride through Varanasi takes you alongside the ghats that are the centre of the city’s famous funerary rites. Also in Varanasi, you’ll visit a local khusti or pehlwani school to witness the unique art of Indian wrestling. Visit an akhara or wrestling gym to watch the students practice their martial arts and learn about the life of discipline and celibacy undertaken by khusti students.
Combine this kind of unique cultural insight with classical experiences like a train journey from Jodhpur to Jaipur, which transports you back to a bygone era of travel, and the aforementioned visits to the Bishnoi Villages, and you have an unforgettable cultural experience that gives you a taste of India’s stunning diversity.

The Splendours of India: Holiday of a Lifetime is the ultimate way to experience this most colourful of nations. Whether seeing breathtaking landmarks like the Taj Mahal, dining on sumptuous tandoori lamb in a lakeside restaurant, or watching the funerary rights in the waters of the Ganges in Varanasi, you’ll experience a taste of India ’s profound power.
