Great stay in Pattaya.

We chose our choice in Thailand, the resort of Pattaya. According to the travel agent, Pattaya is a small resort, modern, many Russians, there are no problems in language exchange. We flew in late April, when the Thais celebrate the new year in their chronology. A good season to relax, it is not very hot, but there is no rain.

We stayed at the Pattaya Park 3 * hotel. On the sites we read that the hotels in Pattaya are distinguished by their “fatigue” and not well-groomed, which we saw. Old furniture, ragged walls, high humidity left traces everywhere. But the room itself was quite comfortable, and everything necessary for living was provided. The great advantage of the hotel was its location, on the 1st coastline, and the presence of markets, cafes, next to the hotel.

Free time from excursions and beach vacations, we walked along the city streets. True, this is not entirely safe for life, since there are few sidewalks for pedestrians, and I mainly had to walk along the carriageway, where crazy rickshaws, cars, and cyclists ride. Continue reading

Budget winter for two in Phuket

The search for cheap housing with comfortable conditions was the first rebus, which, fortunately, we managed to solve positively.

Positive, because we didn’t have any special requirements except for the low rental price per month) The rental price of our apartment is 8,000 baht per month. The apartment consists of two rooms, a bath, a kitchen (very small), a micro-balcony, all utensils and appliances (except for a washing machine, but at the bottom of our house there is a laundry and washing 5 kg of laundry costs 20 baht, a portion of the powder for washing is paid here – 9 baht). Here in the washing room in the basement there is a vending machine for the sale of drinking water, the cost of one liter is 1 baht (in the store 1 liter – 14 baht).

A picture to attract attention, not our mansions))) The goal of minimizing housing costs was caused not just by rednecking, but by the desire not to overpay for secondary in importance. The fact is that we initially planned to travel a lot, which means it’s not enough to live directly in the apartment itself. Continue reading

Las Vegas

Vacation is a special time of fun and carefree. In search of positive emotions and vivid impressions, many go to where they are guaranteed to get both one and the other, and even a little more. And, perhaps, one of the most recognized and famous centers where various entertainments are concentrated, where busy days are replaced by brilliant evenings and fascinating nights, where the real holiday of life is firmly established is Las Vegas.

Las Vegas Attractions
Of course, the most famous Las Vegas entertainments were, are and still are gambling. Countless casinos – one more beautiful than another – invite tourists into their chic gaming halls. Fans of hunting for luck spend days and nights here, hoping to wreck a large sum of money. Others – not so gambling vacationers – spend 10-20 dollars specially prepared for these purposes in slot machines, paying tribute to the tradition and the city that lives and thrives thanks to gambling establishments.
