Paris The Path to 100

Paris Travel Guide – Visiting Paris on a Budget

*Since Paris is so photogenic this is going to be an image heavy post. 

Paris is a city that I could visit again and again and again, it has so much to offer – museums, monuments, churches, history, fashion, cafés, parks,stunning architecture and not to forget the Eiffel tower. It’s easy to see why the city of lights is one of the most famous and visited cities in world.

However it can be busy and it can be rather expensive and with the European football championship taking place in France this summer, Paris is going to be even busier. So below are some tips to help you make the most of your time in Paris whether you are going to a match (for more information click here)  or just visiting for the weekend.

Thailand The Path to 100

One Month in Thailand

 

As travel around South East Asia goes, Thailand is the epicentre for those planning to tour the region. Most people arrive in Bangkok and make their way over land from there and with Thailand’s beaches, jungles, nightlife, food and scuba diving, there is plenty to do and see while you are in the country. The country itself is strongly orientated towards the tourist trade too, which makes it easy for anyone going there – buses and flights to different parts of the country are frequent and cheap, there is little or no language barrier and there is a ready supply of restaurants, bars, laundromats, souvenir shops – pretty much everything you want is close at hand. I’ll go through some of the best things from my recent month long trip here and hopefully it should be some help for anyone planning to visit.

Rio de Janeiro Travel Guide

Rio de Janeiro is one of the best cities that I have ever visited. Before I went to Rio I didn’t know what to expect, it was the last stop of my South American trip and I didn’t think that I would love it as much as I did. But I have to say the time I spent in Rio was amazing from start to finish. They only negative I had was that we didn’t stay for longer, we had 4 days and nights in the city but we could easily have stayed for 2 weeks!

Also since the 2014 World Cup and the Olympics later this year Rio de Janeiro has become easier and safer to get around. (more…)

Vietnam is a country known mainly for its chequered past and tourist wise, it’s relatively new on the scene. Since the early 90’s however, it has become one of the go to spots in Southeast Asia, and with its beaches, nightlife, scenery, culture and the fact that it’s ridiculously cheap, it makes Vietnam a great spot to spend a few weeks. As the numbers of tourists have grown, to country has become more tourist friendly, with the numbers of English speakers continuously rising and the hospitality sector growing steadily too. Visiting Vietnam is also a great chance to visit a communist country (albeit a relaxed form of communism) and see firsthand how it ties into the lives of the Vietnamese.
