Australian Airline Qantas Breaks a World Record with a Direct Flight from London to Sydney

Australian airline Qantas set a record. The carrier's plane flew from London to Sydney without making any intermediate stops.

The flight was part of a research study on ways to minimize the negative effects of long flights for passengers and improve crew health. So the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner flew 17,800 kilometers in 19 hours, and 50 passengers on board saw a double sunrise.

For the purpose of the test flight, the aircraft carried as much fuel as possible, and no excess cargo on board except passengers and crew.

This is the second time in history that a civil airline has flown without a stop. In 1989, Qantas operated a cargo flight between London and Sydney, which lasted over 20 hours.

Last month, again, a Qantas plane successfully completed the world's longest direct civil aviation flight from New York to Sydney. The 16,200 km route was completed in 19 hours and 16 minutes.

Qantas named the effort “Project Sunrise” after the airline’s endurance flights during the second world war, The Guardian reported.

5 Reasons Tuscany Should be at the Top of Your Travel Bucket List

 

Tuscany's stunning and diverse natural landscape, Renaissance art and architecture, and fascinating history and culture make it a top choice for anyone's bucket list. You'll find luxurious Tuscan villas for rent scattered throughout Italy's central region from the rugged Apennine Mountains to Elba's beaches by the Tyrrhenian Sea. Let the following five reasons convince you to put Tuscany at the top of your list for dream destinations.

1. Charming Villages

Of course, you'll want to visit top cities like Florence, Siena, and Pisa, but one of the best ways to explore the beauty and culture of Tuscany is by visiting its hidden gems. The region has 38 small towns designated as Bandiere Arancione, or Orange Flag destinations for their landscape conservation, cultural heritage, and quality accommodations such as luxury vacation villas.

Anghiari is a hilltop town in the province of Arezzo that springs into view all at once as you wind around a hairpin turn at the western entrance. You'll notice the lack of mass tourism to be impressed by the lush landscape of the Valtiberina region instead. Don't miss the medieval village of Barberino Val d'Elsa with its ancient walls and main street that connects the two gate towers, the Porta Fiorentina and Porta Romana.

2. History and Culture

The Piazzale Michelangelo in Florence is adorned with replicas of Piazzale Michelangelo sculptures along with the best panoramic views of the city. The 19th-century piazza is located on an elevated point providing incredible views of major architectural sites such as the Duomo and the Ponte Vecchio.

Around 90 minutes to the west lies the province of Pisa with its freestanding bell tower of the city's cathedral famous for its nearly four-degree lean. With construction beginning in 1173, its ancient history, extraordinary tilt, and renowned Piazza dei Miracoli make it one of the Seven Wonders of the World.

Travel a couple of hours southeast of Pisa to experience the striking complex of the Cathedral of Siena housing important European monuments and the significant Crypt, the Baptistery, and the Museo dell'Opera, all part of the "Duomo Vecchio" (Old Cathedral), and the "Duomo Nuovo" (New Cathedral) reflecting over a millennium of Western history, art, and culture.

 

3. Famous Vineyards

The Tuscany region is famous for its wine-making heritage and the list of Tuscan wines is long from Chianti to Vernaccia. You're certain to enjoy them in restaurants and wine shops, but to fully experience the region's food and wine culture, a visit to one of its wineries is a must-do. Wander through picturesque vineyards or perhaps fly over them with a hot-air balloon tour. Since most have been family-owned for centuries, you'll see historic homes and learn the fascinating history of wine-making. You'll find wineries with amenities like museums, art galleries, shops, and rooftop bars pairing the wine with gourmet Italian dishes.

4. Hiking Trails

Lovers of nature and spectacular views will find dramatic landscapes full of trails for hiking at all skill levels in Tuscany. Head to the ski resort town of Abetone with trails and views to rival those in Colorado. In the village of Mammiano Basso, you can hike across a river via a 700-foot long and 115-foot high pedestrian suspension bridge. During the summer, take a lift to the ski resort's summit and hike or bike back down.

In Tuscany' towns, you can experience walks filled with history. Take an urban hike to the top of Forte Falcone on Elba Island. You can take a ferry from Livorno and hike from Via Della Regina. From the lookout points of the fortress watchtowers, you'll see the house where Napoleon Bonaparte stayed after his exile to Elba.

5. Beaches

With over 250 miles of Tuscany coastline, you'll find seaside towns worthy of a visit any time of the year. The crowds disappear around mid-September when the Italian schools start again, affording you the opportunity to discover the charm of the beaches with new contours.

Visit the beach town of Viareggio in northern Tuscany to experience the Viareggio Carnival. In the weeks before Easter, the promenade is filled with a parade of papier-mâché floats. All the streets and houses are decorated, creating quite a colorful scene. In the offseason, you can stroll along a 3km seaside promenade.

The planet is filled with beautiful and exciting places, and adding one to your bucket list is a big decision. However, for spectacular beauty, a fascinating history, and a lively culture, a trip to Tuscany is unbeatable.

Turkey Introduces New Tax on Hotel Services

Turkey wants to introduce a new hotel accommodation tax from next year. It is expected to be between 6 and 18 Turkish liras per day. So, for a week-long stay in a five-star hotel, you'll have to pay about $ 22 extra.

Earlier it was announced that the new tax would be linked to the cost of accommodation and services at the hotels, and it would be at the expense of the sites themselves. It has now been decided to introduce flat rates and transfer payment to tourists. The fee will be paid by all guests over 12 years of age in hotels of one to five stars.

Turkish hoteliers opposed the tax on the hotel business, and now do not support the tourist tax as well. The chairman of the Aegean Hotel Association, commented that it was "a punishment for the tourism industry for its successes."

The Russian Tour Operators Association has already announced that if the new tax is introduced, tourists will probably have to pay it out of their own pocket.

The tax will start to be collected from April 1, 2020, and it will be 1% of the total payment received from guests (from 2021 the rate can be increased to 2%). The money in the Treasury will not be paid by tourists themselves, but by hotels, apartments, motels, campsites and guest houses. The calculation base includes the price of accommodation and all services provided: food, spa, fitness, entertainment, conferences and more.

Three Reasons to Visit Tibet in Winter

Some say that one of the places you must visit at least once in your life is the Tibet Autonomous Region. The place fascinates tourists with its nature, mysterious culture and exotic charms. Although summer is the preferred season for trips to Tibet, winter is also a good option.

During the snow season, Tibet offers a number of discounts - from hotels and restaurants, to travel packages, tickets and transportation. From October 15 to March 15, some of the famous landmarks such as Potala Palace in Lhasa, for example, are free to visitors, with airlines and hotels offering over 50% off.

Another advantage of winter in Tibet, in addition to lower costs, is the smaller crowds of tourists. This will allow you to safely stroll the streets of Lhasa and observe the ceremonies at the Jokhang Temple.

Most people think the winter in Tibet is colder because of the higher altitude. But the weather is not so scary there. In Lhasa, for example, during the night, temperatures can drop to minus five degrees Celsius, but with the bright sun during the day, they rise to about 10 degrees. Some even say that winter in Tibet is warmer than in Beijing. In addition, the blazing sun of the clear blue sky is a guarantee that you will return with beautiful photos back home.

One of the few inconveniences of winter trips in Tibet is that some landmarks close when there is a lot of snow.

Nikolina Angelkova: 60% of the Tourists in the Winter Season will come from Neighbouring Countries

Notwithstanding the challenges of the difficult 2019, we expect good results also in the winter season thanks to our joint efforts. This was stated by the Minister of Tourism Nikolina Angelkova at the traditional working meeting in Bansko with representatives of the control and the local authorities, and the tourist industry on the degree of preparedness for the new winter 2019/2020 season, BGNES reported.

Angelkova recalled that despite the negative campaign at the beginning of the year, over the period from January to September 2019 inclusive there were more than 7.8 million visits of foreign tourists in the country, and that the drop in numbers compared to the record-high year of 2018 is only 0.8 percent.

Bookings for the winter season indicate that around 60 percent of international tourists will come from neighbouring countries, and we are expecting an increase from some of the leading markets. The estimated increase in the coming winter season is 17% from the UK, 7% from Germany 16% from Hungary and more. 

Angelkova emphasized that Bansko, known as a competitive ski centre and a venue for great competitions in snow sports, is becoming increasingly categorized as a year-round resort. Thanks to the initiative of the municipality and the business, more than 77 thousand people stayed overnight in accommodation establishments in the municipality this summer, with an increase of over 8% over the same period of 2018. It is very important that we expand the Naturally in Bulgaria Inner Tourism promotion campaign to upgrade it and attract more Bulgarian tourists to the region, she said.

The agency will continue to work to reduce administrative burdens to encourage business. The amendments to the Law on Tourism are in this direction, and among them the main emphasis is the status of national resorts, as well as the activity of ski teachers in order to regulate their profession, it became clear from the Minister.

She elaborated on the importance of the Unified Tourist Information System (ETI) and urged those who had not yet registered with it to do so in order to avoid sanctions and termination of the site. Minister Angelkova predicts that Bansko may be among the leaders in this registration. Over 990 accommodation units in the municipality are already registered in the system and have active profiles, with another 120 expected to join in the days. The law must be respected by all and registration is mandatory, the minister was adamant.

With regard to the new winter season, she stressed the importance of having all control bodies in place. The Interior Ministry has already confirmed that there will again be joint teams with Romanian and Greek police officers to monitor public order and tourist safety. The CPC and the RHI are also fully operational, including with mobile teams. Together with the CPC experts, we will start checking the accommodation facilities and the ski slopes within days, according to the specialized ordinance on their safety and information security.

Bansko actively participates in all initiatives of the Ministry for the promotion of cultural, historical, balneological and SPA and wine and culinary destinations. We have made a major breakthrough in our partnership with the German Health Funds, the minister said. The Bulgarian business will be able to welcome German insured people in its premises, including 26 private hotels, which are listed and meet the requirements, and their inclusion is absolutely free.

Bansko Municipality also has a very good position in the wine and culinary destinations and receives assistance from the Ministry of Tourism for its promotion. In conjunction with the Ministry of Agriculture, meetings were held with distinguished bosses and international experts to outline steps and action plans so that children can learn in these traditions at school. In this way we will be able to promote the quality Bulgarian cuisine even more successfully. Next year, an international meeting will be held next year on the topic with members of the world professional culinary associations, in order to get support for promoting Bulgaria at various exhibitions, including at Green Week in Berlin, etc., Minister Angelkova summarized.
