Recent Reviews Daniel Chazad


Upper Svaneti Daniel Chazad

Svaneti is an absolute must! It offers some of the most spectacular and dramatic landscapes imaginable - together with a mysterious and unique culture. I highly recommend a visit to Ushguli, probably Europe's highest village (take warm clothing). It feels like a Caucasian version of Middle Earth. Only a small part of the village, called Chazhashi, is actually part of the WH list but the whole area is breathtakingly beautiful and historically interesting. Unfortunately, as of 2013, there are no scheduled flights to/from Mestia! Except from expensive charter flights (in Cessna, from Natakhtari Airfield north of Tbilisi), the only way of public transport is by minibus. The road between Zugdidi and Mestia is in good condition, Mestia-Ushguli is being upgraded these days. However, travel time is still very long and may require transfer: Tbilisi-Mestia approx.

Palau de la Musica Catalana and Hospital de Sant Pau Daniel Chazad

The guided visit to the Palau de la Música Catalana is well worth the entry fee (in my opinion better value for money compared to some of the Gaudí buildings). A very interesting film covers the history of the building and of the Eixample district. You will then have enough time to enjoy the amazing interior of the concert hall with its stained-glass skylight. The Hospital de Sant Pau is also a great place to discover.

Ancient Kyoto Daniel Chazad

Bicycles are a convenient transportation alternative. Nearly all sites except Kiyomizu-dera have free bicycle parking. For Kiyomizu-dera you can buy a parking ticket for 200 yen. With a mountain bike it is possible to visit e.g. all interesting sites east of the river in one day. Use the paths parallel to the river/s to avoid traffic. You can even reach Fushimi Inari Taisha in 20 minutes or so from Gion.

Ginkaku-ji was undergoing some small renovation but was still one of my favorites. I also loved Byôdô-in Uji.

I experienced the people of Kyoto to be overwhelmingly friendly – from curious passengers in city buses to the staff of the excellent tourist information in Kyoto station.

Gusuku of Ryukyu Daniel Chazad

I visited the WHS in Naha in September 2009.

Sonohyan-utaki Ishimon is a stone gate opposite the stairs that lead up to the Shuri Castle entrance. It is easily overlooked as Shureimon, the main gate to the castle, right next to Sonohyan-utaki Ishimon is more of an eye-catcher. Admission to the gates is free.

The main hall of Shuri Castle was undergoing some renovation i.e. half of the main hall was hidden behind a scaffold. The entrance fee was 800 yen. The fee also gives you access to the excellent museum (English text available). One should know that Shuri Castle is a reconstruction of the original castle which was destroyed in WWII.
