  • The Southern Sky Light Show: The Southern Lights

    The Northern lights are considered one of the most majestic wonders the sky can offer to us, humans. People from all over the world fly to the uppermost part of the Northern hemisphere in the spring and summer months to experience a symphony of lights that dance across the sky. However, it is neglected that the Southern Lights can offer an equally pleasurable show of sparkling lights, shades, and colors. There is no competition between the Northern lights and Southern lights as they are both the effect of a scientific phenomenon only possible at the polar opposites of the earth. Although there are minute scientific differences which will later be explained, the aesthetic display and the astonishment these lights create are essentially the same. Yet, for some reason, the Southern Lights is the neglected twin that we will be showcasing through this article. Aurora Australis Photo by NOAA on Unsplash The Southern Lights’ are otherwise known through its original Latin name; ‘Aurora Australis’. This is a more phonetically beautiful translation as Australis means Southern and Aurora a light that touches the sky and historically it was more generally used to describe dawn.   What are the Southern Lights? Photo by NOAA on Unsplash In layman's terms without going into the whole academic field of understanding the effects of the electrons, protons, and the upper atmosphere which would need an entire science degree to understand; The Aurora are disturbances on a magnetic sphere space level which result in the emitting of a light varying in depths, colors, and complexity. The disorder creates an artistic landscape of wonder in the sky, never twice the same because the space weather is unpredictable.   How do they differ from the Northern Lights? Photo by Lucas Marcomini on Unsplash and ThatPhotoGuyNL on Unsplash Recent scientific research shows that the Southern Lights are not a symmetrical representation of the Northern Lights. The sun’s powerful magnetic field pressures the earth’s lines to elongate the lines of the night, elongating the Southern’s lights appearances. When the sun’s magnetic field aligns perfectly with the earth, the Northern and Southern lights can symmetrize, but this is a rare phenomenon. The phenomenon of these lights is only possible due to the activity, storms, and disturbances of the magnetic sphere space. The Southern lights are not the same as the Northern Lights because of the Sun and its magnetic pressures.   Best Time to See the Southern Lights? Photo by NOAA on Unsplash In the opposite fashion of the Northern Lights, the Southern Lights are in the Southern winter. This means the prime time to visit is June through to August, but they can begin as early as March and end as late as in September. They are perfect to catch and experience during the hotter months in the Southern Hemisphere. Although, it is difficult to track the exact moment a light show will open its curtains and start, there are online services available that offer an hourly forecast based on NASA spacecraft orbiting the areas. Remember to check the recommendations based on your desired location for more live information.   Where to see the Southern Lights? Photo by NOAA on Unsplash The choices to view these wondrous lights are surprisingly vast. The Southern lights are the perfect alternative for travelers who are not fans of the cold, icy temperatures of the Northern hemisphere. This article has picked the creme de la creme of the locations to view the Southern Lights.   Australia Photo by Joey Csunyo on Unsplash If you consider the southernmost countries, then doubtless Australia is a territory that will cross your mind. If you are visiting Australia, you have a high chance of being able to witness the ballet of lights. There are highly accessible areas to view the Southern lights and speaking to locals will direct you to the perfect places to view the Southern Lights Victoria, Australia If you happen to find yourself in Melbourne or Victoria then you are in the lottery to view the Southern lights. Hop on a train from Melbourne to Victoria and try your luck to view the light show. The chances are lower here to experience the full Southern Lights but it is near impossible to miss the Milky Way. This option is especially useful for those visiting Australia instead of the lights specifically. Tasmania, Australia It makes perfect sense to look at the Southernmost territory of Australia, Tasmania, for a higher chance of viewing the lights at their supreme best. Tasmania is an island off the south of Australia with a chance of viewing the lights any night of the year. These chances increase when you visit between March and September and you find high altitudes. Tasmania has 38 peaks over the height of 1,220 meters giving you an array of choices on where to spectate and experience the lights. Mount Wellington, Hobart, and South Arm Peninsula are all regarded as great high locations for the display.   New Zealand Photo by Tobias Keller on Unsplash If your sole purpose is to view the Southern lights then New Zealand is the place to be. Not only a place for film stars and fantasy movie scenery, but New Zealand also is not often considered as a location for the Auroras. This is partly because we often imagine viewing these light phenomena in an igloo or surrounded by snow. However, it is completely logical to visit New Zealand for the Southern lights as it is the most Southern inhabited territory in the World. Queenstown, New Zealand Queenstown is a good location to base your stay in, based in-land of New Zealand but on the Southern part of the island, it has good access routes to Lake Wakatipu and Lake Tekapo. These lakes provide a magnificent view of the southern lights reflected on the wide expanses of water. It is important to bear in mind that any chances of viewing the Southern lights are diminished when close to a city and town with artificial lights, hence Queenstown should be a beginning to a means but not the final location. Aoraki Mackenzie Dark Sky Reserve, Lake Tekapo Aoraki Mackenzie Dark Sky Reserve located at Lake Tekapo is a well-known secret amongst star chasers. This reserve is often a pit stop for more than a night as the view and observatory are so perfectly situated it is impossible to experience quickly. The Reserve encourages star-gazers and chasers to stay awhile with facilities run in the night and even telescopes to get a closer look at the sky. Stewart Island Only accessible by ferry from Oban or Invercargill, other possible locations to view the light display of the South, Stewart Island is the most remote and most southern location in New Zealand. It is unobstructed by mountains or tall structures but there is the fear that the weather can cast a cloudy sky and obstruct your view. It is always best to have many options available before planning your Southern Lights adventure.   Ushuaia, Argentina Photo by Luuk Wouters on Unsplash Ushuaia or also known as the ‘end of the world’ is not often considered for it’s Southern Light views. In the winter, Ushuaia has up to 17 hours of darkness on average, really increasing your chances of catching the lights. However, as always it is paramount to find areas with little to no urban pollution and artificial lights as these can significantly interfere and disrupt the display.   South Africa Photo by Thomas Bennie on Unsplash As the name suggests we would assume that the Southern Lights are visible from South Africa, however, it is very hard to predict viewing them on the African continent. This is why we have erred away from suggesting South Africa. Now that we’ve exposed you to the wondrous Southern Lights and highlighted the possibilities of viewing the Southern Lights, we hope that you will consider the often neglected Southern Lights over the Northern Lights. Instead of flying over half the globe, we encourage citizens in the Eastern hemisphere to consider New Zealand and Australia for their next star-chasing adventure. However, if you travel to South America consider making a special trip to Argentina for this unique light upon light experience....

  • Travel News Wrap: 14 September Week

    Cover Image Credit: Photo by chuttersnap on Unsplash This week has been filled with travel related news. Here's a summary for this week: SIA Flight to Nowhere Set to Launch in October 2020 Image Credit: Photo by Goh Rhy Yan on Unsplash Singapore Airlines (SIA) is planning to launch flights to nowhere this October. Jumping on the flycation trend, following the footsteps of similar flights from All Nippon Airways, EVA Air Air, and Qantas, albeit the later is flying over Antarctica. The decision to hold this three-hour flights to nowhere came after the news of Singapore Airlines Group cutting 4300 jobs due to the brunt of COVID-19. The flights are set for domestic passengers to take off from Changi Airport and land again at the same airport. SIA decided to launch this initiative after they found that 75% of 308 people surveyed were willing to pay for such flights. In addition to this, SIA is also exploring a partnership with the Singapore Tourism Board, Hotels, and other partners to value-add to this service. Objectively, SIA is hoping to pump the business back into the industries to mitigate the COVID-19 fallout. The decision to go through with this plan has made a lot of buzz on social media and environmental groups, with many expressing concerns about the environmental impact that the flights will have. The concern is justified though, as it has been proven to be a big contributor to the global carbon footprint. SIA does share its environmental efforts on their website, but currently, at the time of writing, there are no developments to their story or decision.   Mexico Reopening Tourist Site after 5 Months Image Credit: Photo by Jezael Melgoza on Unsplash COVID-19 has affected Mexico as badly as it has affected the rest of the world. The travel restrictions, closing of facilities in order to keep people safe, many have had their livelihoods affected by the pandemic. To help boost the country’s economy and help those affected by it, Mexico has decided to reopen the country’s archaeological site such as the pyramids of Teotihuacan, a UNESCO World Heritage site, a popular tourist spot. Not forgetting that COVID-19 is still a threat, the reopening does come with additional safety measures. The main archeological zone is limited to only 3,000 visitors per day, temperature checks and masks are required at the site as well. After 5 months of closure, the reopening was very well received by the general public.   Singapore - Hong Kong Green Lane Update Image Credit: Photo by Ryan McManimie on Unsplash Singapore and Hong Kong are starting to show interest in talks of gradual resumption of cross-border travel between the two. Citing strong business and social ties, the resumption will be beneficial for both.  Currently, Hong Kong is already in talks with Japan and Thailand, to set up for a similar arrangement. In addition to Japan and Thailand, Hong Kong has also expressed interest in a travel bubble with 11 countries, among them is Singapore.  Currently, Singapore has travel arrangements with China, Malaysia, Brunei, New Zealand, South Korea, and Japan Read more on the Reciprocal Green Lanes on our blog “Everything you need to know about Singapore's Green Lanes Travel Arrangement”.   Hawaii Tentative Reopening Image Credit: Photo by Luke McKeown on Unsplash Hawaii has been playing with the idea of opening its borders for a few months now. Recently, due to the change in leadership, it has been reported that Hawaii is set to begin a testing program to let incoming passengers avoid quarantine if they are tested no earlier than 72 hours before arriving to the island state. Travelers will have to also have an FDA-approved nucleic acid amplification test (NAAT) done and have to show proof of their negative COVID test from a CLIA certified laboratory. Currently, the pre-travel COVID-19 test is targeted that the new scheme will be in place by 15 October this year. Tourism is a big part of Hawaii’s economy but with the uncertainty of COVID-19, the number of cases can directly impact whether this tentative reopening will start according to the target date. For more information on this scheme, please check with Hawaiian authorities.   Singapore & Thailand Added to England and Scotland’s Quarantine-free list Image Credit: Photo by Heidi Fin on Unsplash Carrying on with the ‘Quarantine-Free’ travel theme, Singapore and Thailand have been added onto England and Scotland’s Quarantine-free list. Starting from 4 AM, 19 September 2020, travelers from Singapore and Thailand will not have to self-isolate or quarantine themselves upon arrival in England or Scotland. The prerequisite of this is that the traveler must not have been in or transited through any other non-exempt countries in the preceding 14 days. To learn more about this, please check with the travel advisories from the authorities of the respective countries.   P&O Cruises Cancel All Cruises until 2021 Image Credit: Photo by Belinda Fewings on Unsplash Cruise company P&O will be extending its suspension of all sailing until 2021. Earlier on, it was planned that they will be resuming it from mid-November, but with the evolving restrictions on travel from the UK, they have decided to extend the suspension. Guests who have booked on canceled cruises will be reached out by the company with refunds available. This comes in line with their parent company, Carnival Corporation’s announcement to sell off 12% of their fleet and after the news that P&O is planning to cut 450 jobs across the cruises to keep the company afloat.   Vietnam Resumes International Flights Image Credit: Photo by Tony Pham on Unsplash Vietnam is set to resume international commercial flights to multiple Asian destinations starting from Friday, 18 September 2020. This arrangement, however, is reserved for Vietnamese nationals, diplomats, experts, managers, skilled workers, investors, and their families. In general, this arrangement is reserved for business and official travel only and does not include tourists. The countries included in these flights are South Korea, Japan, China, Taiwan, Cambodia, and Laos. As with other flights during this time, travelers are required to have a negative COVID-19 test certificate and travelers will be tested upon arrival and kept in quarantine if required. Please check with the respective authorities for more details on the travel arrangement.   SIA Suspends Flights to Canberra & Wellington Image Credit: Photo by Shawn Ang on Unsplash Singapore Airlines announced that they will no longer be flying direct from Singapore to Canberra, as reported by ABC news. This was decided based on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the aviation industry pushing them to make this decision along with the laying off of over 4,300 staff from their workforce.  Currently, Singapore Airlines will suspend services to Canberra, Dusseldorf, Stockholm, and Wellington from their network of flights.   U.S. Airlines Are Getting Rid of Change Fees Image Credit: Photo by Miguel Ángel Sanz on Unsplash A few weeks ago, it was reported that United Airlines has made the decision to get rid of their change fees. Now, other airlines in the United States are following suit. All of the airlines, except for JetBlue, have eliminated the change fees which has been a costly fee associated with domestic flights. This will affect the fees of not only domestic flights but will also affect some short-haul flights to the Caribbean, Mexico, and Canada for some airlines. There you have it, you are now caught up with the latest and most prominent travel news this week! Happy Weekend and Stay Safe!...

  • Halal Food Guide Launched by Tourism New Zealand

    Breath taking landscapes, icy cold mountains, crystal clear waters, greenery as far as the eye can see, all these phrases would never be sufficient to describe the natural beauty New Zealand comprises of. Due to its natural features the country is an iconic location for film makers, to add that beautiful zing to movies. Well if directors all over the world fly thousands of miles due to the indescribable beauty of this country, it is without a doubt that New Zealand is a country that must be visited by any travel junkie. For Muslim travellers however the most tedious task in visiting a country with a Muslim minority in the community would be finding locations to obtain halal food. New Zealand is a country very well known for its tender and juicy roasts, barbeques , pies and mouthwatering desserts. It would be such a pity if any Muslim traveller was to visit this beautiful country and stick to vegan only dishes due to halal concerns specially if you are a person who loves tender and succulent meat. The Tourism New Zealand has decided to assist the huge crowd of Muslim travellers visiting the country each year by providing support to ensure that all Halal travellers are able to locate and find halal food at ease without any disappointments. In order to do so , they have issued a Halal food guide which features the list of restaurants, cafes, bakeries, supermarkets and grocery stores where Muslim travellers would be able to locate halal food in New Zealand and eat to their hearts content without having any concern. Download the New Zealand Halal Food Guide here! Check out our Locals Guide to New Zealand! In 2016, The Halal food guide was previously released, featuring 567 halal listings of restaurants, cafes and supermarkets but the newer version features 289 more options added to the previous listing. The Halal Food Guide of New Zealand was compiled on the initiative of Tourism New Zealand along with the cooperation of "The Kiwi Muslim directory" (which is a portal where halal businesses, organizations, prayer locations and times are listed) and "FIANZ" (The Federation of Islamic Associations of New Zealand).   User-friendly Picture Credit: production-editors.newzealand.com Picture Credit: production-editors.newzealand.com I am sure you have all experienced typing and searching through the internet for halal food options in any country that you may have visited. Reading each and every review, thousands and thousands of clicks and searches can make any trip frustrating. But if New Zealand is your next destination for your trip all you have to do is to download the halal food guide and you are good to go ! The Halal Food guide is designed so that it is user-friendly. The halal guide uses a symbol to categorize the three types of halal-friendly outlets available in the list. The categories included are; Certified by FIANZ: green circular symbol with a capital “F” in the centerMuslim-owned: purple circular symbol with a white tick at its centreVegan-only: green leaf symbol These symbols help any halal traveller to clearly identify and choose an eatery of their choice. Please note that the vegetarian eateries included in the guide are not halal certified or muslim-owned, but are claimed to be purely vegan. Hence, please check with the members of staff regarding any oil or other ingredients that may be impermissible (in Islam) before consuming. The Halal Food Guide of New Zealand covers a range of cities of the beautiful country, and the halal restaurant list is organized in a way which will easily enable Muslim travellers to locate halal food nearby. The guide is mainly divided into two sectors; one which is NORTH ISLAND and the other which is SOUTH ISLAND. In these sectors, you will find a list of the major cities of each island and the restaurants featured along with the addresses, telephone numbers and contact information. Therefore if you have any concern regarding the food served or any menu inquiries you can dial the phone right away. North island is further divided to Auckland (central, north, east, south and west are further divisions), Northland, Waikato, Bay of Plenty, Rotorua and Lake Taupao, Hawke’s Bay, Taranaki and Whanganui, Wellington and Wairarapa and finally Manawatu . On the other hand, the South Island is further divided into Nelson and Marlborough, Canterbury, West coast, Southern Lakes, Dunedin and Southland. So whether your holiday to New Zealand is among the busy city lights in Auckland, or among the hills of Waikato or even at the Majestic Canterbury or maybe a mixture of all the cities over a couple of weeks. You will be able to locate restaurants, cafes, and even supermarkets out and about New Zealand, thanks to the halal food guide.   North Island Central AucklandIn Central Auckland you would be able to locate an abundant of spots to eat without any hassle what so ever. In this city, you will find a total of 72 spots featured, out of which 18 are vegan-only diners (not halal certified) and the rest of the restaurants are either owned by Muslims or certified by FIANZ. There also 9 bakeries and snack food places available in the halal food guide and five meat and grocery stores which are all certified by FIANZ for selling halal meat. North AucklandAt Northern Auckland you would be able to find some great spots for some Arabian food especially if you are a fan of grilled kebabs and chicken. The halal food guide includes 15 restaurants and 2 grocery stores in which you will be able to locate halal food . East AucklandAt East Auckland there are no halal bakeries and snack food options listed in the halal guide. However, there are 11 restaurants out of which three are beautiful restaurants that serve pizza, and are all halal certified. Southern AucklandIn Southern Auckland , you will have no worries buying yourself a good cut of halal meat to whip up a warm meal at home. The Halal Guide shows 16 meat and grocery stores that are either Muslim-owned or Fianz certified. Apart from the meat shops, the Guide includes a list of 5 bakeries and 34 restaurants which is quite a bigger number compared to East and North Auckland. Out of the 34 spots included in the halal guide, only 3 locations are vegan-only restaurants which serve traditional south Indian food while the rest of the locations are halal certified. West Auckland and WhangareiOptions are rather limited in these two locations. West Auckland is listed to have around 13 restaurants and a couple of meat and grocery stores. Most of the halal certified restaurants weigh towards the Indian and middle eastern cuisine. In Whangerei, there are only 2 locations listed in the halal guide, one being a grocery store and the other being a vegan-only Indian Restaurant. Hamilton, Morrinsville, Te Awamutu, Te Aroha and Te KuitiThese locations which are all situated just below Auckland contain quite a number of halal friendly restaurants but are not very much as concentrated as Auckland. There are a total of 7 restaurants throughout the 5 locations with Hamilton containing the majority. There are also a total of 3 meat and grocery stores throughout the 5 locations. TaurangaIf you are fond of visiting the beautiful volcano of Tauranga, your halal food options will be among the four restaurants included in the guide in which the majority is influenced by the Middle Eastern cuisine. Rotorua and Lake TapuoAdmire the beauty of the volcanic landscapes and geothermal fields of Rotorua and cruise on a beautiful boat ride along the magnificient Taupo lake while dining in one of the seven halal restaurant options available in the area. Majority of these restaurants are influenced by the middle eastern cuisine where you would be able to enjoy a yummy kebab platter and middle eastern flat breads. Unfortunately there are no halal grocery stores or bakery and snack food outlets recommended by the Kiwi Muslim directory. Hawke's BayEnjoy a stroll down beautiful lanscapes of the Hawke’s Bay and enjoy the beautiful climate of the region. While you are at it, you will have 8 options of restaurants to choose from. A highlight restaurant in the region is "Café Anatlia Turkish Cusine" which will serve you some mouth watering food to munch on during your beautiful stay. New Plymouth, Whanganui, Taihape and HaweraHalal food options are rather limited in these areas, with two meat and grocery stores at New Plymounth and Whanganui and all four locations have a total of seven options of restaurants to eat from. Although there are limited options of Halal food options, these areas are incredibly beautiful with their natural landscapes for you to admire. I definitely recommend that you give these places a go, while keeping track of your pit stops for some of the halal restaurants mentioned in the guide. Wellington and MastertonThis little stop before jumping over to South Island offers some great halal eateries for you. Both areas combined have 15 food options to choose from, 4 of them being vegan-only cafes and the rest of the eateries are Muslim owned for you to stock up on the meat.   South Island Nelson, Marlborough and MurchisonSo for our first stop at South Island, I have got to say halal options are rather limited in this area, with only 4 restaurants recommended by the halal guide. ChristchurchEnjoy the beauty of the Garden city of Christchurch which is adorned by beautiful flora as far as the eye can see. While you are at Christchurch make sure to dine at some of the best resturants in the area which are included in the halal guide. Pick your spot from the 10 restaurants and 5 halal-friendly grocery stores as per your preference. Unlike the other regions mentioned earlier, Christchurch has a variety of restaurants with different cuisines to choose from during your halal holiday to New Zealand. DunedinDunedin is a very great stop to all the Wildlife enthusiasts who visits New Zealand. It also has some great spots to grab halal food as seen on the list. With 12 options on the list, 11 are muslim-owned and one is a vegan-only eatery. Unfortunately the halal guide does not recommend any meat or grocery stores in the area. Queenstown and WanakaThe adventure capital of New Zealand which is Queenstown comprises of 2 recommended halal food outlets for Muslims where both are Turkish Restaurants, the same goes with Wanaka which has only one option in the list. From the guide it is clearly visible that halal food options are very much concentrated around North Island of New Zealand in which Central Auckland has an abundance of eateries for you to choose from. There are lesser options in the South Island, but be adventurous and don't miss the chance to go out and about the country while having the nearby halal restaurants in mind. Since there are telephone numbers and addresses included in the guide, planning your holiday to New Zealand is definitely going to be a piece of cake. Get your bags packed and head to the beautiful land of New Zealand where exciting thrills, beautiful landscapes and delicious food awaits you.
