Sited in the forbidding landscape of the Empty Quarter is Al-Khamasin or Wadi Al-dawasir, an Arabian Bedouin town renowned for its bachoor or incense and camel. Al-Khamasin is also the home of the Al-Dawasir, Arabia’s largest tribe. During the height of spring, the landscape of Al-Khamasin bursts into a bottle green spectacle, drawing caravans of camels and hordes of visitors from different corners of the globe.
Silk Road history
In the ancient times, the town served as a Silk Route of several caravans coming all the way from Jordan, Iraq, Kuwait, Yemen and the United Arab Emirates. Apart from being a trading post, the place has been useful as a resting point before visitors head to the Empty Quarter, where they can get a glimpse of sand dunes shaped in dreamlike forms and are naturally sculpted to rise to over 250 meters.
The virtually unexplored villages of the town are where visitors can see a mixture of different tribes, which descended from the Dawasir clan. The Al-Dawasir tribes are known for their wealth, power and leadership. They are the ones who gave birth to other cities like Al-Khobar, Ahsa, Zubara and Kuwait City.

Baguio: City of Pines
This is SM City Baguio. The biggest mall in the city. I never imagine to live here in Baguio for a long time. But becuase of studies, I prefer to take my college course here than in Manila.

But seeing its changes from its foundation last 1909, Baguio grew a lot faster ... Read full Blog post
San Gimignano and San Pellegrino
Night falls on the flourishing and industrious San Gimignano, its 72 towers stand on the low roofs of the houses lit by the moon. This is not a luxury travel spot but is something you don't see every day. In the distance the clatter of hooves echoed tired in the Via Francigena. The hand of the blacksmith stops beating, the frame of the weaver becomes silent, the streets of the tank only a concert ... Read full Blog post
