Luxury Travel Ltd to Launch an Exotic Beach Break to Quan Lan Island, Northern Vietnam

Luxury Travel has just unveiled a new exotic beach break to Quan Lan Island, Quang Ninh Province, Northern Vietnam for Hanoi based holidaymakers.

Hanoi, Vietnam, July 13, 2012 - As a creative local tour operator and full service DMC, Luxury Travel often unveils new ideas, as well as develops new concepts and travel experiences to satisfy any travel desire. A personal concierge is assigned to each client to ensure that Luxury Travel meets and exceeds all your expectations.

Luxury Travel Advisor Team has visited their destinations, and has personally checked out the finest hotels, resorts and restaurants designed for discriminating travelers. Luxury Travel has just unveiled a new exotic beach break to Quan Lan Island, Quang Ninh Province, North Vietnam for Hanoi based holidaymakers. It takes travelers 5 hours away from Hanoi by various mean, van, hydrofoil, tuk tuk but it worths a break to the most remote beach.

“This 4 day trip is designed for families, expatriates and holiday makers who want to be the first to discover exotic islands and beaches. The island features high mountains which lie within the area of Bai Tu Long Bay to the east, functioning as a protective screen for the villages. With a population of about 4,000 farmers, fisherman and their families, Quan Lan Island is still a wild and less explored destination due to its distance and wilderness. Its pristine beauty features an unspoiled environment, which makes this destination more precious. Not too long ago, this was still a place without electricity! The island boasts a natural charming beauty with deep blue water and white sand stretching over kilometers and is very ideal for relaxation, sightseeing and other light activities. For those people who would like to discover something new and fresh, this is the perfect destination!” said Linh Doan, Marketing Executive of Luxury Travel Ltd.

The price starts from US$ 393 per person from 6 people in a twin share in beach front villas and includes all transportation (van, hydrofoil, tuk tuk), meals, entrance fees and the services of an English or French-speaking guide. This offer is valid until 30 Sept 2013.

“If you look want luxury, stay away, but for super scenery, a fabulous ocean view, the best and simplest seafood anywhere and cheap, then, I’d recommend you Quan Lan Island. The summer is the best time to be on holiday in Quan Lan Island (from April to September). The landscape is reminiscent of landscapes to Bali, Indonesia. There are 3 beaches: Son Hao, Minh Chau and Viet My. Son Hao is probably the best beach, with 2 km of clean, white sand, a great view, and nice waves. In Hai Van Resort, all houses are on stilts or villa style, with some of the villas facing to the ocean. The island has no electricity, and so we so from 6 pm to 6 am you will rest and enjoy the natural calm. I recommend you experience the island for yourself before it changes.” Pham Ha, Founder and CEO of Luxury Travel Ltd.

SAFE International Announces Toronto Women’s University Self Defense – Toronto, ON Self Defense

Toronto Self Defense, SAFE International Announces Toronto Women’s university Self Defense

Toronto, ON, July 12, 2012 - (Straight Line PR) - Toronto Self Defense, SAFE International Announces Toronto Women’s university Self Defense.

SAFE International ™ is the leading provider of mobile self defense/personal protection training in Ontario. SAFE International has taught more than 150,000 clients in the private, corporate and high school environments since 1994. SAFE International is expanding its seminar options to include women’s university self defense parties in Toronto, ON. 

SAFE International quickly realized that women had completely different concerns, fears, and needs than males. Chris Roberts, CEO of SAFE International listened to their concerns and tailored something that was not only educational, but also met their personal fears. Men have no idea what women go through on an everyday basis from the stares and comments to the physical gestures and advances.

One of the reasons that SAFE International enjoys teaching self defense for women in university is how receptive women are to the skills that the SAFE International instructors provide. SAFE International teaches self defense concepts, rather than techniques. This allows women to learn in a much shorter time. SAFE International always covers Awareness and Avoidance strategies which are based on one's daily routines.

We examine what an attacker looks for, what an attacker wants and doesn't want in confrontation. One of the biggest topics we explore is how most people are too polite, even when their intuition is telling them the complete opposite. We cover the most common distraction techniques an attacker will use to gain an advantage. We then move on to verbal strategies in the event that avoidance is no longer possible. Rather than just teaching to yell at a potential attacker, we cover a few verbal strategies based on the aggressor and the scenario. The third step is addressing the physical aspect of Toronto women’s university self defense. We begin with the advantages of adopting a passive stance rather than an aggressive stance.  We only teach gross motor strikes due to the adrenal rush one gets when they are in a highly stressful state such as an attack scenario.  We teach a philosophy of "Attack the Attacker" which reverses one from being the Prey, to that of being the Predator.  Another philosophy is to attack the head if all avoidance and verbal strategies have failed. This is only 30 minutes into the physical training and you can see how the self defense concepts are very effective. The self defense drills increase with intensity as the participants gain more confidence. This is very important as you don't want to terrify your clients right from the start. It is important to build rapport with your students and the results will be seen as the drills progress.

Invite 6 to 8 of your friends for a few hours of fun, education and potentially life- saving instruction. Plan a meal, bbq, snacks, maybe some dessert! Be prepared for a unique Toronto Women’s university Self Defense experience

SAFE International has taught more than 150,000 students since 1994. To contact SAFE International and Chris Roberts to schedule your Women’s University Self Defense, you can visit their main site at

FRA claims Romania is increasingly Attractive to Ethical investors

The latest economic figures to come out of Romania show that the country’s forestry sector is bucking the overall trend for recession, by growing by more than 4 per cent.

Bainbridge Island, WA, July 13, 2012 - The latest economic figures to come out of Romania show that the country’s forestry sector is bucking the overall trend for recession, by growing by more than 4 per cent. Forestry Research Associates (FRA) claims that this news will attract more foreign investment into the forestry industry in Eastern Europe.

FRA, a research and analysis organization, is a keen advocate of sustainable forestry projects and believes that investing in forestry can be a great way of diversifying a portfolio. “Forestry has a low correlation with equity markets and can also be a good option to offset inflation,” stated FRA’s analysis partner, Peter Collins.

In the first quarter of 2012, Romania’s GDP fell slightly, indicating the country is in recession, following a period of growth in 2011. However, the figures released by the country’s Statistics Institute, show that the forestry industry grew by 4 per cent. The growth in the forestry market and the fact that most analysts believe that the current slump is just a blip, means that foreign investors are likely to remain interested in Romania.

“Ethical investments, such as investing in plantation and sustainable forestry projects all over the world, are proving much more popular following the global economic crisis.

“We believe that countries like Romania will begin to attract more and more investment from foreigners in the coming year or so,” added Mr Collins.

Bogdan Ion, Ernst & Young’s managing partner, told Romanian Business Insider: "We see more and more investors attracted by the renewable energy sector. More privatizations are planned in the future, encouraging investors worldwide to look to our country.”

FRA supports a number of forestry projects run by firms like Greenwood Management in Brazil and elsewhere. “Investing in plantations is a good way to gain something tangible in exchange for your cash and can also help to prevent deforestation,” concluded Collins.
