Hanukkah begins the evening of Sunday, December 6 this year, which means if you're shopping for Hanukkah observers you have about three weeks fewer to shop for gifts. Since we’re knee deep in the Digital Age that means a non-technology gift will be relegated to the category of the infamous holiday fruitcake this year, but fear not because there are a lot of options for fun and exciting tech gadgets this... There are also a lot of practical tech gifts that your friends and family are sure to appreciate. This year’s hot gifts will be flat-screen TVs, smartphones, gaming systems, tablets, headphones, speakers, wearables and drones. As a techie who loves trying out the latest gadgets, I have put together a list of the best tech gifts for holiday shoppers this season. Drones have been in the news a lot lately and pretty soon you might have to register your drone for safety reasons. While a drone might not be the type of thing everyone is racing out to buy for themselves, they make great gifts. The Parrot Bebop is one of the most popular recreational use drones on the market because it’s small and lightweight. You'll have to recharge the Bebop's battery often between flights, but anyone who gets one this holiday season will enjoy capturing their friends on the ski slopes.
Originally started as a means to promote the therapeutic properties of mud and mud cosmetics, the festival has grown to such popularity that it is frequently featured on various things-to-do/places-to-get-f’d up-before-you-die-bucket-list type...

Phra That Cave. Had planned to turn back after the falls but saw on the map that there were these caves not too far away. There weren't any other tourists, and the guard sitting outside the cave with his dogs took me in on a private tour. Really huge and impressive cave with lots of formations and stuffs. Was pitch dark in the cave and had to rely on the guard's gas lamp to see anything or take photos. (though I didn't really catch much) Chiangmai Backpack House, Chiang Mai. Had a hearty breakfast at the hostel before heading out. Coming from Singapore, this breakfast felt really cheap (probably much more expensive than if I had an authentic Thai breakfast though). The hostel was quite old and toilets were rather dirty, but the owners were very, very helpful and friendly people, and I met a couple of nice people staying there, so the stay was decent overall. Highway 1095, Chiang Mai to Pai. Although appearing quite rugged on the outside, it was quite comfortable inside with a mattress, fan and wall plugs. Much cleaner than some of the other places I had been to. There are other more 'normal' places to stay in closer to the center of town. Highway 1095, Pai to Chiang Mai.
