Tips To Buy A Hunting Binocular

Most people around the world would have used a binocular, at least as a toy. When it comes to binoculars used in different fields, the requirement varies. Only a very few people who have good knowledge on binoculars, consider the important features for the specific purpose to buy it. Others purchase it randomly by viewing the specification and choosing the best among them. The one they choose may be a great binocular with a great specification, but it may not fulfill one’s need.

For example, a binocular with higher magnification value may be suitable for watching the object closely. It may satisfy the need if it is bought to watch the stars or the birds. But, it may not be a great choice if the actual requirement is to carry with them on a ship. This is because a wider field of view is better than the closer view while sailing on the sea.

In the case of using binoculars for hunting, it must be such that they are easy to point at the targets, to look for dangerous animals to safeguard oneself and to survey the terrain. Here are few tips to choose the best hunting binocular, don’t shop until you’ve read this guide.

Get To Vietnam With An Easy Visa On Arrival

If you are an American and planning a trip to Vietnam, remember to get a valid visa, as Vietnam does not allow entry for foreigners without a valid visa.

While there are many countries that allow entry just on the basis of a valid US passport, Vietnam is not so. No matter whether your trip to Vietnam is for business or pleasure, they do not bend rules for anyone.

How to get a valid Vietnam Visa?

There are different methods to get a valid visa for Vietnam. One of the simplest is the Vietnam visa on arrival for US citizens.

In this way you get a valid visa as soon as you touch the Vietnam lands. This is when you are travelling by plane. The process is as follows:

You first get assistance and fill out a form while still in the US.

The next step is to pay the visa service fee.

After the fees have been paid, you then get an approval from the Consulate.

You then take the approval and board the plane with that as a proof.

On arrival at Vietnam, you will be required to show your approval letter along with a valid passport. And your visa will be made available in just 1-2 working days.

The process is much simpler and takes lesser time as well. Even the fees charged is bare minimum and that too will be 100% refunded if your visa application is rejected.

You can make the payments using Western Union Money Transfer, PayPal, pay online or even cash is accepted.

Also in case you have a doubt or require any assistance, they have round the clock customer support available for all travellers.

Yet another way to get a valid visa is by applying beforehand and getting a visa. But this process takes longer and costs much more also the amount is not refundable.

For travellers who arrive by cruise, there are many agents that provide a valid visa on board at a cost.

What I found on my Trip to the East

Two years ago, I headed out on my first trip to the far east. Being from america I didn’t know what to expect, only that it would be a complete alien world to me. The only familiarity I found were the tourists from the entire western world. It seemed like all the young people from all over the developed world had come to stare and photograph the locals. Something that I abhorred. I came here not to watch, but to get involved, so I started my own trail off the beaten track.

After 3 days of trekking with a group of vietnamese monks and a guide, we arrived at an ancient buddhist temple. Surrounded entirely by dense forest on all sides and hidden well from anybody who doesn’t know it’s exact location. The monkeys howled during the morning and at night, I could swear there were more crickets rubbing their tiny legs together just outside of the temple than there were drops of water in the ocean.

Spending nearly a week there, with no running water, electricity or internet, I felt truly at one with myself and the world. But, even though this place was magical, I knew there were so much more on my list that I needed to see and do if my soul was to be full before I went home.

So off we set again, me and my little crew that I had formed. We all agreed that we wanted somewhere with a little more luxury and agreed that somewhere by the sea would be the best for us. We ended up stumbling across Na Trang, a beach to the south of vietnam. To our surprise I found a great villa accommodation here, big enough for all 6 of us to each have our own room and still see the beach, it was a dream.

Safe to say, there was so much yoga, meditation and healthy eating going in those four walls. Especially after basically becoming a monk for a week
