Where Should I Stay in South Asia?
For anyone going to South Asia, I would have to say that staying in one of the major cities there is the best option. I’m not going to talk about discount hotels or guesthouses, as everyone can afford them, but I would like to share with you my suggested places to stay in South Asia.
Bangkok:Bangkok is a big city, very different from New York or Paris. Still, in my opinion, it is the best place to go in Southeast Asia. First of all, the city is very modern. You can use the Metro (I don’t recommend it for a very good reason, but you can’t go without it) and you will take a very good view of the city and the sea. By the way, if you visit New York, you will love the Big Apple. 270 km by air you will be there, in a matter of two hours. The city is modern, organized and very safe.
Pattaya:Pattaya is a small city in Thailand. I would not recommend you to stay there for more than two nights, because there are not so many places to visit and the prices can get really high.
Koh Samui:On the west coast of the Thailand, along the Malay Peninsula, is the island of Koh Samui. It is a very rented place, that can be used for 10,000 people and it’s very beautiful. You can go there for many beaches, boat trips and small shopping.
Phuket:Moving on to Thailand’s largest island, Phuket. The place is known for its beautiful beaches and resorts. The places I think are the most beautiful are Khao Phi Phi (Beach of the Phoenix) and Lamai.
Chiang Mai:in the north of Thailand, an important place to visit is the second largest city. It is the city of hills and the Castle of Drupach.
Pattaya:Pattaya is a city on the west coast of Thailand. It is not really a city, but is considered a very popular beach resort. A lot of companies organize beach parties.
Koh Samui:On the south, in the island of Chang Mai, is the famous beach of Koh Samui. A lot of people are seen coming to Koh Samui beach. It has a beachfront resting on 14 green hills, making it one of the most beautiful places to visit in Thailand.
Pattaya:Pattaya is a city on the west coast of Thailand. It is not really a city but is considered a very popular beach resort. A lot of people come to Pattaya city.
What you can expect there are thousands of hotels, usually built during the period of European domination (more than 100 years ago). If you go to Pattaya, you will see a lot of British tourists. Also, don’t forget to go to the sweep or to the beach. There are a lot of nightclubs, bars, and pizza shops.
Beaches are popular among Americans, Japanese, Europeans and backpackers. The most popular beach in Pattaya is the Full Moon Beach. Other beaches you should visit are the Cathay Pacific Island Beach, the Never Land, and the Pearl.
Pattaya is the center of activity in Thailand. Other attractions in Pattaya are the Bunky, Crocodile Island, Crocodile Rock, and the juggernauts. The city is Believe Hotel, and Tootha.
Tours are organized every afternoon and evening to the nearby islands of Ko Larn, Ko Krok, and Ko Sak. Luzon is also an important tourism center of Thailand. Pattaya and the Gulf of Thailand are considered to be the jewelry of the country.
