Deana Uppal had dabbled in many fields. She had been a director, a producer and a model besides being a businesswoman. Deana Uppal was the winner of Miss India (UK) contest in 2012. She had also been a part of the reality shows like 'Big Brother,' 'Fear Factor,' 'Khataron ki Khiladi' among others. Deana, leading a business empire, is also a travel-freak. Her social media pages are replete with the reflections of her many journeys, both official and private.
Deana loves travelling. Her video and photo posts from the tour of Bali, from Whistler in Canada, from the Dream City of Mykonos in Greece and more are big hits on social media.
Deana's most recent vacation was in Bali. Bali, also known as the 'Island of gods' is a world renowned tourist destination though it is just one of the 17,000 islands that make up Indonesia, the largest island nation in the world. This small island has a rich repertoire of traditional art and immaculate sculptures and carvings. Claiming many geographic and topographic similarities with Kerala, Bali is a trove of sightseeing spots.
One can clearly discern the influence of the Indo-Chinese culture in the traditions, rituals and the constructional styles of Bali. One of the major attractions of Bali is the beach tourist centre of Kuta. This is a beach with a large expanse of seafront.
The Pandawa Beach and the Bali Bird Park are equally famous tourist destinations. If you want a scenario distant from the beaches and seashores, head for the Tegenungan waterfall. This waterfall, located in the beautiful village of Ubud could remind one of the Athirappilly when viewed from a distance. Deana has shared her Instagram photos from near the Tegegungan waterfall.
Bali is easily accessible from India which is one of the selected countries whose citizens do not need to obtain a tourist visa.
Whistler in Canada
Whistler in Canada is another big tourist centre Deana has visited. One of the major skiing destinations in the world, Whistler has many other attractions in its armoury. Whistler can offer many varieties of attractions like snowshoeing, winter ziplining, luxurious Scandinavian spas and museums. Merging the Whistler and the Black Comb Mountains, the 'Peak 2 Peak Cable Car' here held the world record of the longest free-span ropeway towers until upstaged in 1997. It is still the highest ropeway lift point above ground. This lift itself is a big tourist attraction.
There is no difference of opinion that Greece is a place that captivates us with its ancient monuments and it natural beauty. Millions visit Greece every year. Though Greece has plenty to offer to the tourists, Deana had chosen the Mykonos Island in Greece for vacation.
Mykonos, the little Venice
Many buildings, walkways and roads in Mykonos are painted white and this could be one of the peculiar features of the place. Mykonos, located in the Cyclades Island group, is also known as 'Little Venice.' The lay of Mykonos is as if it is facing the seafront. Even a mere walk along the whitewashed pathways of Mykonos, which is rich in beaches and shopping streets, will be a memorable experience.
Deana had shared the photos of her sojourn in London and the tours within in her Instagram page. Clean streets, neat flowerbeds, buildings of same shade and the chill of the surroundings are well captured in these photos. It is impossible to tour the city of London in a day. Even then, if you board a 'hop-on, hop-off' London sightseeing open top bus, most of the important tourist attractions can be covered. London has the first underground railway network in the world.
