Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in Cool Travel on Friday 21 June 2013

Wow, wow, wow, wow, wow. The Pammukkale in Turkey looks like a bewitchingly tranquil place with these natural terraced pools. Apparently when earthquake activity thousands of years ago brough chalk-like water rich in calcium carbonate to the surface, the substance piled on layer after layer, accumulating to form the terraces.

Mike Dizzle Reader Find

By Mike Dizzle in Video on Wednesday 17 April 2013

This video done by Brussup has to seen to be believed. Or not believed, whichever the case may be. I’ve read that it has something to do with camera trickery, but I prefer to fantasize about a 24 hertz sine wave, anti-gravity, water fountain in my front yard.

Casa del Agua in Mexico

The Urban Grocer Contributor

By The Urban Grocer in Cool Travel on Tuesday 22 January 2013

I have lived in and loved Mexico City. It’s a thrilling metropolis, underrated completely and with energy and imagination unlike any other. But when in Mexico, you don’t drink the water. It’s one of those ‘rules’. And that is precisely part of what makes Casa del Agua – literally house of water – so intriguing. Ironic even.
