Tourist Traps of New York by SaqibSoomro

New York, is every travelers dream to go to. Every child from when he or she gets his or her exposure wants to visit this city which is famously known as the big apple. The more you read about it the more it gets your attention and makes you attracted to it. So he tells us about the most famous tourist traps of New York.

  • Statue of liberty photographers:

When a person visits New York he will most definitely visit the place which is the New York is most famous for, the statue of liberty. But the main problem in the beautiful marvel lies in the fact that it is shrouded by the people trying to rip you off of your money. These are the main land photographers, which will hover around you as you visit the beautiful place and ask you for your picture taken, as soon as you get it taken, they ask you for a huge amount of money which you will eventually have to pay.

 

  • Times squares dress up:

The second in the list when you come too big apple is the fact that you will obviously go to the Times Square New York when you land there. It is a beautiful place to get your pictures taken but it comes with a catch. You will see their people who are constantly trying to come to you for the pictures dressed as super heroes and stuff. Do not fall for them, they will ask you large sum of money after it if done so never ever do it and always stay vigilant for them.

 

  • Citadel of Abraham:

Citadel of Abraham is the choice for many travelers SaqibSoomro said. In this citadel you can go and enjoy the sights and sounds of old Abraham Lincoln’s era, where there was peace and serenity. Here you will see fake ticket sellers everywhere, but you will have to watch out for them. These ticket sellers have wrong tickets and can be spotted if you look at them closely, wrong tickets have plain white color while the actual ones are blue in color.

 

  • Google park:

Google Park has been added as the very recent attraction to the New York’s things. The best part about is park is that it has all the technology from the advent of computers and other stuff. The more power for the attraction is that once you pay for the tickets everything is free inside. But there is a catch, here the fake sellers will try to sell you fake cover and stuff, watch out for them.

 

  • Bronco busters:

These guys are known to give bikes and cars for rent, but it has happened that some of the new people with the same names have opened their business too, always go for the original bronco busters, because that’s the place where you will be getting the quality bike and cars for your travel requirements SaqibSoomro said.

Why traveler guide is important while travelling

Mr. Saqib Ahmed Soomro has traveled more than hundred countries of the world. His traveling includes from the heights of rocky mountain cliffs of Nevada to the below sea level country like Seychelles. He has traveled to the places where a normal person wouldn’t even dare thinking of traveling let alone actual traveling. When we inquired upon the importance of having a traveler’s guide while a person is traveling in the digital era. We inquired that is it necessary for anyone who is traveling to an unknown country to have a travel guide of its own since the smart phones and tablets these days are so well equipped with every map there is which keep you informed throughout all the travel time and makes the travel even more interesting. He says that even in this digital age keeping a traveler’s guide has its own importance which can never be ignore by anybody.

According to Mr.SaqibSoomro he still keeps a travel guide with him in a hardcopy wherever he is travelling to.  He said the purpose that the actual hard copy serves is that purpose which a digital guide like a cell phone guide or a tablet one cannot serve. He said that the digital guides need to be recharged in order to work overtimewhereas the normal guide in hard copy won’t require you to have any kind of recharging required to it. If you happen to face the rain, he says that you can’t take your digital guide out, even in that scenario the normal traveler guide works without any problems. A travel guide just occupies a little space in your pocket where you could keep it. With the travel guide you can go to the places you wouldn’t even think of going else. It serves as a purpose to explore more on the foot and even on the motored transportation. The travel guide keeps you informed about the terrain that you have to face in your quest for travelling. It will keep you informed about the customs prevailing in the country.

Mr. SaqibSoomro also tells that a traveler guide will help you keep an eye on the pros and cons of the culture. In every culture there are certain things that you can’t do or those things are considered immoral and not modest. You have to follow those norms to enjoy your travel the most. He says that a travel guide will help you get more out of your travel from the destination you are traveling to. The travel guide will help you out if you get lost from roaming street by street. The travel guide will also make sure that you are fully informed about the cultural changes that you face from your own hometown to the country you are traveling to. He always asks to get a travel diary from a reliable source such as amazon and which is authentic and updates. An outdated travel guide will serve you bad and may land in you trouble.

Why VPN is important while travelling

VPN stands for virtual private network. It is a virtual device that enable a person to spoof the IP address for his convenience. Mr. SaqibSoomro is an ardent technology lover as well. His love for technology can be understood by the intricacies of internet that he understands and the gadgets that he carries. We were just randomly talking to him when he came up with the topic of installing a VPN in your computers and system just to keep your privacy safe when you are travelling.

Why a VPN            

A virtual private network is the thing by which a person can hide his IP address. He said that when you are travelling in a country where there is a lot of foreign agencies that has set up their network online to stop terrorism and knowledge of the other fugitive stuff virtual private network comes in handy to hide your location. By a virtual private network your location cannot be traced. When you install a virtual private network in your system it hides its physical address which enables you to access the internet freely while you are travelling without having the fear of being monitored or being caught by the agencies or even the online terrorist organizations. The best thing about installing a virtual private network is that you can even access the things that you can’t while surfing over the normal web. There are several different virtual private networks that are available in the market by which you can choose from.

Deep access by a VPN

Mr. SaqibSoomro tells us that a virtual private network also enables a person to access the deep dark web through it. By installing a virtual private network in your computer system or a tablet or a cellular phone device you will be able to access the website with the onion domain. These are the website which enable you to track and download the things to your device which are next to impossible through the normal IP address that you internet service provider has given to you. How it comes handy while traveling is the fact that you can get travel information from the people which is usually hidden on the internet, which makes your travel quest even more interesting.

 

Security of a VPN

Out of all the things that a VPN has to offer the best thing is that it offers you security protocols which aren’t available on the normal internet SaqibSoomro told us. These security protocols ensure your safety online. Your progress and your search records can’t be tracked down by any organization or any country while traveling. The best virtual private networks in the world come with a price, but he says it’s worth paying them to ensure your security and safety. The best part about a virtual private network is that you can be agony free. You won’t have to worry about the security of you and your family members while traveling around the world in your vacation as a part of your voyage.

Five countries that are a must avoid while travel planning

Mr. SaqibSoomro has so many travel tales to tell that if you have a month to spare it will come short as well. Again we ventured into his home to meet him and listen to his travel stories that he has to offer. His stories are so much in depth that a mind can get engrossed in them for hours and hours without noticing how much time has passed away. This time we asked him that in his opinion which countries are a must avoid when it comes to travel planning around the world, as he knows so much about all the countries we knew that he would provide a handsome feedback to us. He said that there is a list that he has in which he considers these five countries the baldest in the travel planning:

  • Damascus, Syria

When it comes to the number one most dangerous country in travel planning it has to be Syria and most importantly the city of Damascus. The name might sound flamboyant but it is far from that. It has constant bombings and fighting going on and everyday people are killed on the streets and kidnapped. He says that one must cancel all the plans for travelling if they are travelling with family or even alone. Even the world’s journalists are advised not to go there because of the prevalent circumstances. Better to travel anywhere else than this place he says.

 

  • Afghanistan

In the second spot Mr. SaqibSoomro says that the most important country not to visits for the safety of your life is Afghanistan. Here the civil war has been happening since ages and the infrastructure has broken down big time that there aren’t roads to travel even. So if you are making any such plans of travelling to Afghanistan then you must reconsider because another factor is that, this country is even very conservative.

 

  • South Sudan

Another worst country in the world is the South Sudan where there has been freedom fighting going on. The fighting has been taking place since ages there, it is a great place if you want to see the wildlife but the problem is that the people of that country are very wild, they kill all the people who visits there so one must take note while planning travel there.

 

  • Iraq

Iraq is another country which has seen a lot of trouble post Saddam Hussain’s regimen. It has seen a lot of devastation and catastrophe. So much has happened there in the last two decades with the bomb blasts to firings to killings that it has become a no-go area for the people and most importantly tourists.

 

  • Somalia

Somalia is the country which comes in the fifth of the list. Because of the fact that this country is filled with poverty. There isn’t any bombings or fighting going on but the crime rate in Somalia is very high SaqibSoomro said. It is a beautiful country but comes in the danger list.

5 worst places for tourism

In another talking session with Mr. SaqibSoomro, he told us that the world is a beautiful place to visit and travel but he says in the bed of roses there have always been a few thorns. These thrones represent the world’s worst travel places. He says one just should not and never even think of travelling for the safety of his family or his loved ones, or for his own life’s sake. He mentioned a few places which are extremely dangerous to travel to and if a person has to travel to these places he must take precautions as his life could be in danger too.

  • Jerusalem

This place has been the disputed territory since ages. People have been fighting there for liberation with Israeli forces for many years. This place is a no-go territory for any traveler. Here you can be caught and put inside the jail for the crimes that you haven’t even committed. One must take extra precaution while travelling to this country and according to him they must not. This place is one of the worst in the world for the human life’s safety.

 

  • North Sinai – Sharma el Shaikh

North Sinai is another place where he says that a person must never ever visit. Even though this place is near to the most famous Sham El Sheikh it’s better to stay away from this place as it still has rebel fighters who are trying every which way to kill and kidnap the tourists from all over the world. After they kidnap the tourists they ask for the ransom from the people. SaqibSoomro asks the travelers for extra precaution against such travelling.

 

  • Occupied Kashmir

Another place which he says that one must not go to is the Kashmir the occupied one. It can seriously put you in danger of getting killed, kidnapped and several things that can happen to you. Kashmir is a beautiful place, it has always been said that the valley can give a tough competition to the beauty of Switzerland in a head to head comparison, but the main problem there is that the two nations are fighting over it for the turf war, and that is the reason why he says not to travel there.

 

  • Syria

Syria is another place in African region where he says that one should not travel. Syria is mostly situation in between Rocky Mountains and big deserts. But here lies the same issue, freedom fighters are always on the hustle with the government for their issues. And the city is constantly being bombarded by the Israeli forces too. That is the reason why he discourages people from going there.

 

  • Kosovo

Last worst place in the list of Mr. SaqibSoomro is Kosovo. Kosovo had a bad history of warfare and fighting amounts the rebels and the law enforcement agencies. Its infrastructure has been fully destroyed with the worst economy. All the time in 80s and 90s this beautiful place had numbers of people killed here as the result the tourism went down to zero.

There are many exhibitions where he has been called as a jury member or the furniture making competitions where he has encouraged young talent of furniture makers and designers to showcase their work in front of the people. Often he has visited numerous countries of the world where he has been the top most priority of the contestants to impress because he was sitting there as a judge, if they happen to win the competition it would shine on their resume even more.

London is one place where Saqibsoomro has visited a lot in his lifetime for business, governmental works and most importantly for the exhibitions in London. He always says for the furniture exhibitions that city is best suited from the entire world. There are several reasons why he opts for London whenever there is an exhibition that he is staging or someone else is organizing. The art and furniture exhibitions are the events that he visits every year at least twice. He often narrates that those exhibitions are the best in the world where the artists from all over the world come to showcase their made furniture. Mayfair square is one such place which is filled with exhibition halls of the furniture’shappening from all over the United Kingdom.
