European countries present an attractive destination for that annual holiday. Countries that boast a Mediterranean shoreline and superb weather could on any other year prove to have everything going for them but not in 2012 when the Olympic Games are going to London , England and maybe that’s the vacation spot for a summer vacation with a difference.

What could possibly be more exciting that holidaying in one of the worlds most unique capital cities, home of Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament , the Queen, Princess Diana, Leicester Sq. , Piccadilly Circus and so much more? This city of culture has so much to offer and has never been so tourist-friendly and ready to look after it鈥檚 tourists.

The London Olympics will take place next July and August and will principally be centred on the Olympic Village in London’s famous East End. In the event you are feeling adventurous, you’ll be able to plan a vacation to take in not just the Olympics, but the whole UK too. Scotland , Northern Ireland and Wales all make for lovely day trips or week 2 destinations and journey across the United Kingdom is easy and cheap.

There’s a lot to do; generally it鈥檚 tough to know where to start. Here鈥檚 our dream Itinerary;

Week One
Choose an airline like British Airways and fly in to London Heathrow or Gatwick. You’ll be able to either stay in a hotel, or lease a local property from a web site like London Games Rentals. Be careful to book this part of your trip early though as the Olympics will entice many more visitors to London than normal and accommodation will be scarce, particularly after the Easter break. Some business insiders are forecasting a further 500 ,000 visitors to London as a direct results of the games and that鈥檚 on top of the normal increase in tourism at this time of the year. Factor in the weak pound and it will be busy. Perform a little research in to where the varied Olympic events are actually being held as sports such as soccer, sailing and shooting are not going to be hosted in the Olympic Village.

Spend the first week following the Olympic events and visiting London. The atmosphere will probably be electric and there’s a lot to do.

Try the popular haunts such as Madam Tussauds and the London Eye, visit the free museums and gallaries such as the Science museum , the Natural History museum or Tate Modern.

Week Two
What鈥檚 special about London is that鈥檚 it鈥檚 ideally situated to do plenty of other things. We would recommend in the second week that you rent a car and go see Great Britain. Attempt to end up at a different departure airport, say Edinburgh or Dublin to provide you a better likelihood to see everything. Our journey would begin with Brighton, positioned on the South coast of England. Brighton is a wonderful English Victorian seaside town that boasts its own pier and amusement area.

Next day a 3 hour journey , by way of Stonehenge to Bath to see this beautiful old town. Famous for its Roman Spa and Old World feel, a trip to Bath won’t ever be forgotten. Stay for a few days and get used to the West Country’s way of life, it is a slower paced , and remarkably soothing. Be sure you take a day trip to Wales and use the old Severn Bridge.

Finally, we’d advocate ending in the lovely city of Edinburgh, home of the Scottish parliament , and of course Edinburgh castle. Fly out from Edinburgh airport and you’ll have had probably the most amazing holiday, and seen the best show on Earth – The London Olympics 2012.

Vacation of a lifetime 鈥?London 2012

BANGKOK, June 13 (Xinhua) -- Several wildlife activists launched the "Ivory Free Thailand" campaign here Monday in an attempt to end all ivory trade in the kingdom.

Two wildlife protection groups, the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and WildAid, launched the campaign, calling on consumers to never buy, own or accept ivory as gifts.

Thailand's martial-art movie actor Tony Jaa, hired as a presenter for the cause, questioned how Thais would think ivory could have brought magic powers amongst purchasers when the elephants themselves are left dying and powerless under the gun shots of poachers.

A 2015 survey conducted by WildAid, African Wildlife Foundation and Save the Elephants said only about 52 percent of the Thai population is aware of the elephant poaching crisis in Africa, with 51 percent of the population being aware that the kingdom is one of the world's most destined market.

Last year, Thailand passed the Elephant Ivory Act to regulate the country's legal market in ivory from domestic elephants. The government has also prohibited the trade and sale of ivory from African elephants by enacting an amendment to the country's existing Wild Animal Reservation and Protection Act, making African elephants a protected species in Thailand.

According to these groups, over 30,000 African elephants are poached each year just to satisfy consumer desire for their ivory.

"We are happy to see all the governments trying to end the wildlife trade. We only encourage more action and action here in Thailand for the government to move towards closing the market for ivory," said John Baker, managing director of WildAid.

Adopting their previous successful campaign against ivory trade.
