  2. Simon Says reviewed Gatorland in Orlando, United States

    Alligators are some of the original inhabitants of Orlando, and this is a good way to get close to them without putting yourself or your family in even mild peril. You enter through a huge gator mouth, and inside will find thousands of crocodile and all…"

  3. Simon Says reviewed Indoor Skydiving at iFly in Orlando, United States

    It might sound dangerous, but in indoor skydiving you're not actually jumping off anything much at all, what's happening is that you're placed at the mercy of a vertical wind tunnel strong enough to get you off your feet and hovering, windswept, horizont…"

  4. Simon Says reviewed Ride in a Vintage T-6 plane at the Kissimmee Air Museum in Orlando, United States

    The North American T-6 is the plane that 70% of WW2 pilots earned their wings on, and for you an opportunity to see this town from the air, to try out some crazy aerial acrobatics or just see what it might have been like to be a trainee pilot. All sorts…"

  5. Simon Says reviewed Kennedy Space Centre in Orlando, United States

    There are few people in the world who'll get closer than this to experiencing taking off into space than the Shuttle Launch Experience at the Kennedy Space Centre. Here you can walk/ climb around real space capsules (Apollo, Atlantis, Mercury and Gemini…"

  8. Simon Says reviewed Noryangjin Fish Market in Seoul, South Korea

    As soon as you get out of the subway at Noryangjin Station you'll smell that you're in the vicinity of the Noryangjin Fish Market (노량진수산시장), Seoul's wholesale seafood market and auction venue. The majority of South Korea's seafood, and much of that goin…"

  10. Simon Says reviewed Amphawa Floating Market in Bangkok, Thailand

    Unlike the floating market at  Damnoen Saduak, Amphawa starts late, so it's a great place to come for an afternoon or evening meal.  This is more of your traditional food market - people paddling their canal boats along the bank with ingre…"

  11. Simon Says commented on Gorky Park in Moscow, Russia

    "Mostly famous in the west for the cold war novel, and film, by the same name, or its mention in the song 'Winds of Change', Gorky Park was opened in 1928 as the Soviet Union's first 'Park of Culture and Rest', and the entertainment options, which began w…"

  13. Simon Says reviewed Mitad del Mundo (visit the Equator in Quito) in Quito, Ecuador

    It might sound strange to people familiar with the layout of maps generally, but for people who live in Quito, the fact that they live on the equator makes them feel like they live at the centre of the world. Or some of them do anyway. Those that do ha…"

  15. Simon Says reviewed Bletchley Park in The United Kingdom

    I'm reading a brilliant book at the moment about the cracking of the German Enigma code in World War II, so it made sense to visit Bletchley Park, which is the Buckinghamshire mansion cum secret military base where it was cracked. I say secret military …"

  17. Simon Says reviewed The Great Pyramid in Cairo, Egypt

    Lights and lasers bring up the features of the Sphinx who's employed for the evening to tell the story of Egypt as he's watched it over the ages in his suitably dramatic and resonant voice.  Laser beams project patterns onto the walls of the Mummifi…"

  19. Simon Says reviewed São Brás de Alportel Easter Festival in The Algarve, Portugal

    São Brás de Alportel is like many other eastern Algarve towns, but at Easter time it celebrates in its own unique way and draws crowds from the surrounding towns and further afield. São Brás's old town has a church and Episco…"
