Flam, Norway

If you are like me, leave Norway till the last, you would have missed a lot. I've always been led to believe that Norway is so expensive that it is prohibitive. Nothing could be further from the truth. It is not anymore expensive than Rome, London or Paris. Besides there are loads of ways to save. But the people who are brave enough to venture there, the Chinese, principal among them, has discovered a whole different world. The sights and experiences are something that is so unique to Norway. The best time to visit is in summer. Even though it still rains, you'll get many spectacular days. Flam is a very little village at the trail head of Sognefjord, the fjord ends here and even though it is small, the huge cruise ships are still able to get in here. The Flamsbana train runs in and out of here a few times a day and every trip is packed. Here people are lining up to board the spectacular train that takes through those high and dangerous landscape.
