Migratory Bird Sanctuaries

Zoë Sheng Chinese-Canadian in NZ - 04-Oct-19

Migratory Bird Sanctuaries

There was some confusion about where the places are until I checked the official map, and even now there is confusion. China news outlets reported the Dafeng Milu Nature Reserve to be included but actually it is not. There is an interesting history about that deer park (deer got eaten to extinction!!) and you do get to see many, many birds there but I am very sure it is not part of the inscription. My friend's family owns an eco lodge in a similar forest reserve in Jiangsu and you see many birds there of this caliber but they are obviously also not inscribed. To add to this, the entire "Yancheng Coast" is a bird paradise including several islands that are famous birdwatching destinations

Breiðafjörður Nature Reserve (T)

Zoë Sheng Chinese-Canadian in NZ - 30-Sep-19

Breiðafjörður Nature Reserve (T)

First off, I really like the Breiðafjörður Nature Reserve but you will see why I don't rate it highly soon.

I took the Viking Sushi Cruise from Stykkishólmur a couple of hours north of Reykjavík. It started ~10am and was quite full even on a windy and slightly rainy day. The main draw of this cruise is that it takes you to some of the nearby islands (I forget their names) for bird-watching and catches a net of clams. They even provide soy sauce and wasabi! There was also enough for everyone so it was probably worth the money.

Taihang Mountain (T)

Zoë Sheng Chinese-Canadian in NZ - 27-Sep-19

Taihang Mountain (T)

The Taihang mountain range stretches from Shijiazhuang in the north to the Luoyang in the south covering three provinces (Hebei, Shaanxi, Henan). It's famous yellow mountains will remind you of Huangshan if you have been there. The geology is similar I suppose. The bold inscription attempt is for geology and in fact there are many UNESCO geoparks in this mountain range already, as well as several unique species that live here that you wouldn't see as a tourist and are probably not seen by the inspection team when they come either. You get to see macaques though...

Hima a rock art site in Najran (T)

Hima a rock art site in Najran (T)

It is hard to figure out where these rock art sites really are. The only place I found was the Hima wells area and nearby the well was one, fenced off, with a sign stating tourist visits should be arranged with some phone number. Well, too bad. I noticed there is an opening to the right of that place and it was clearly used by others before. Not much climbing required. I don't want to promote breaking rules, especially in the KSA where you can get into deeeeeeep problems for doing this, but it is the only easy way to actually see them close up. Okay so you don't need to break the law if you have binoculars or a zoom lens

Aires volcaniques et forestières de la Martinique (T)

Zoë Sheng Chinese-Canadian in NZ - 27-Sep-19

Aires volcaniques et forestières de la Martinique (T)

I'm typically biased towards nature site but this one is really nice and worth a visit. An hour's drive from FdF at the most through beautiful scenery already (although the roads can be narrow yet in good condition) you arrive at the parking lot for Mount/Montagne Pelée. The lookout is nice too but the mountain is obviously what you came for - yes, ignore that ugly power station at the start of the hike /cough cough.

The hike is roughly 6-7km depending where you actually go
