Vijay Verghese SINGAPORE has been described by some as one big shopping mall — wall-to-wall glitz and mammoth venues with window displays to lure those with spare change, and others in need of some air-conditioned respite from the sweltering heat. Best of all, many Singapore shopping malls are quite child-friendly and some lay claim to excellent nibbles and eats for that mid-afternoon pit stop.
Search More Theme Parks and Water Parks There are many more theme and water parks that I have visited, but haven't pictured or reviewed on the site.
Either my visits date back prior to or I was simply too lazy that day. Time to catch up! Here is the missing list, plus my short opinions: Albania Luna Park Tirana Visited Small funfair in an exotic European city packed with pedestrians.
Tirana is the opposite pole of Kissimmee. Argentina Republica de los Ninos Visited In fact, the resemblances are staggering.
What's even more staggering is that Disney's park still serves as the prototype for so many theme park developments today. Armenia Luna Park Yerevan Visited A little funfair world of color with awful rides in a grey, but special city. Australia Luna Park Sydney Visited I didn't expect much from an year-old Luna Park — most of the Luna Park-named funfairs out there are in a desolate state — but this one is a remarkable exception.
Extremely well-maintained, peppered with attention to detail and proud to relive its glorious past, you feel like back in the days when men wore hats, Chaplin movies were running in glamorous cinemas, and couples dressed up for riding rattling wooden coasters.
There's a lot of love that went into Luna Park Sydney!
Marineland Melanesia Visited Small crocodile zoo and exhibit on a tropical island off Cairns. Family ownership is evident in the attention to detail.
Sports the allegedly biggest crocodile in captivity. Sugarworld Waterpark Visited Austria Wiener Prater Visited Permanent funfair installation, not really a amusement park. Appeases the hunger of Eastern Europeans who, as ofdon't have any theme parks in their countries.
Tired-looking, expensive and lots of bad attractions. Azerbaijan Baku fairgrounds Visited Do NOT ride the ghost train on the eastern end, you may end up getting stuck with your nose and teeth on a sticky curtain that drops on your face in complete darkness, while the vehicle continues moving forward.
That sounds too funny and cruel, but man that was painful. Reporting this to the lazy-looking ride operator, would he care, let alone take a look at what went wrong inside?
My thoughts and prayers are with the next riders. And with Baku's next visitors. The driver on the way from the airport to the city center started to yell and shout at me on the highway, renegotiating the price agreed upon.Nov 22, - Rent from people in Chennai, India from $20/night.

City Name: Chennai (formerly Madras) [Go to TOP] A typical south Indian city, kept itself away from influences of north India but Chennai businessmen are now forced to learn Hindi to prevent loosing business from IT people. Prosperous northern cities like Jalandhar, Ludhiana, and Patiala are gaining importance among retailers for theme based malls catering to niche customers for automobiles and jewellery.
