History and Beaches in Ukraine
In Khersones, southern Ukraine, you can go snorkeling in the Black Sea…the ancient Greek ruins here combine with the sensational beaches to create a paradise. This city is dripping with classical history--it was an outpost of Alexander the Great’s Greek Empire. The capital of Ukraine, Kiev, is a blend of many different architectural styles (Neo-Renaissance, Gothic)…and there are wonderful Orthodox cathedrals and parks.

The Phra Singh temple is just one of the 300 or so Buddhist temples that you’ll find in the northern Thai city of Chiang Mai. The elegant temple library and exquisite murals in the 700-year-old shrine make it one of the city’s most visited sites. But it isn’t the only thing attracting people.
You may do little more than double check that the oven is off before you go on a trip, but in other parts of the world, travelers can get mighty superstitious.
