How to Get to Guimaras Province?

There are only two ways on how to get to the province, its either going from Iloilo City or from Pulupandan in Negros Occidental. If you are coming from Manila, the easiest way is flying straight to Iloilo City then ride a public transport to the Ortiz Wharf. From the Ortiz Wharf, ride a pump boat which would take up to 20 minutes to the Jordan Wharf in the Guimaras. If you go from Bacolod City Airport in the Negros Island, you need to ride a public jeepney to Pulupandan RoRo Wharf and ride a boat going to the Sebaste Wharf in Guimaras which would take up to an hour.

Amman, Jordan: The Perfect Introduction to the Middle East

For visiting the Middle East for the first time, Jordan is a perfect choice. With its mixture of Arab tradition and Western influences, especially the capital Amman offers a broad spectrum of cultural activities, sightseeing opportunities and exciting events of any kind. You probably have heard of the unique and historical city of Petra, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and maybe even of the Wadi Rum Desert, both located in the south of Jordan, but today I am going to tell you about the benefits of Amman only, Jordans proud capital in the north of the country.

Petra; Jordan: The city of the Last Crusade

Most people know Petra just from “Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade’s” movie but there is so much more than that to discover. It is also known as “The Lost City” since it became lost for centuries to the western world after 1400’s AD; until a Swiss traveler named Johann Ludwig Burckhardt finally rediscovered it in 1812. Today, Petra has become one of the Seven Wonders of the World transforming itself in Jordan’s jewel.
