Rock Islands 06-Oct-18

Rock Islands by Christravelblog

The Republic of Palau is one of these destinations that isn’t frequently visited by tourists. And those that do are mainly Asian (Chinese) tourists. Palau has just 1 WHS site and that’s the rock islands. There are many but the most famous is the 70 Islands cluster. You can’t go in there anymore. The only way to see them is from the air! I did a helicopter flight over Palau which is an amazing experience. You see much better these rock islands. The next day I also did a Kayak tour where you get closer to other rock islands. Both tours gave me a good view of this WHS. I liked it as it’s unique.

Nzulezu Stilt Settlement (T) 23-Aug-18

I really enjoyed wandering around the Nzulezo Stilt Village of Beyin as it’s so unique. I have visited the floating village on the Tonle Lap lake in Cambodia and the stilt villages of Brunei but in Ghana it’s so different.

Kerkuane 21-Aug-18

Kerkuane by Christravelblog

I visit Kerkouane as part of my 2 week road trip in the northern half of Tunisia. (I ticked of all the WHS/TWHS there). Kerkouane is a 2.5 hour drive from Tunis or 3 hours from Sousse. I recommend visiting it on the way from Tunis to Sousse or the other way around. Saves you driving the same road twice and Cape Bon is nice to drive around too.

Pulacayo, Industrial Heritage Site (T) 09-Aug-18

Pulacayo, Industrial Heritage Site (T) by Christravelblog

I visited Pulacayo as part of my Bolivian trip (Sucre-Potosi-Uyuni-La Paz) to tick off the WHS (and TWHS) in that area. Pulacayo isn't on many itineraries but it's just 20 kilometers from Uyuni. Most tours go to the train graveyard of Uyuni but I think Pulacayo is much better.
