Top 5 amazing places you can visit to appreciate rock arts

In hundreds of places scattered all around the world, archaeologists have studied rock art that were left behind by our ancestors. These ancient images chiseled and imprinted on rocks depict different scenes that give us an idea on how our ancestors saw the world hundreds of years ago, before there were buildings and roads, and super cars with high-powered engines.

Some of these images or pictures, if you will, show animals such as birds and lizards, or groups of people in action; and date back to about 700 years. Some rocks display images of Christian crosses, that are presumed to have been made by colonists who came all the way from Spain, probably during the early 16th century. And yet there are even older types of rock art that are believed to have been made 3,000 years ago.

Touted as one of the great ancient wonders of the world, the pyramids of Egypt represent the only wonder still standing. Originally completed in 2560bc, the size and scope of these pyramids make them a must-see travel destination. If you’re looking to visit the pyramids, here are some tips:

The pyramids attract thousands of visitors every year, so it’s best to get there as early in the morning as possible. It’s actually mandatory if you want to go inside the pyramids! It costs about 80 Egyptian pounds to enter the Giza plateau, and another 150 or so to enter one of the pyramids. However, to preserve the pyramids, they limit the number of tickets sold to 150 in the morning and 150 in the afternoon. Another recent change is tour guides are not allowed to purchase tickets for their group, instead all tourists must buy individual tickets at the ticketing center.

The cost of spa holidays varies, and depends on where you are staying and what treatments you would like to experience. In most spas a set of basic treatments come as part of the overall price, such as manicure, massage and use of swimming pools and steam rooms, but if you want any specialist treatments such as professional fake tans, electrolysis or mud wraps then you may have to pay additional fees on top of your booking price.
