The journey of the trip, groupon travel

Begin getaways at Mandarava, a resort and spa set on the west coast of Phuket with prime access to the glittering Andaman Sea. The contemporary property celebrates the topical location with lush vegetation, three swimming pools, fountains and palm trees decorating the grounds. Groupies stay in a Tropicana Room complete with natural-toned furnishings, modern décor and private balconies. The rest of the resort provides many opportunities to relax outside rooms, with a fusion of restaurants, pool bars serving up fruity drinks and the onsite spa letting guest unwind in a paradisiacal location.

After five nights travellers are transferred to Bangsak Village to spend the remainder of their holiday in Khao Lak on Thailand’s mainland. The pristine Andaman coastline sets the scene for a quiet getaway where guests unwind and get back to basics while staying in the lap of luxury. The Alocasia Rooms are furnished with neutral, distressed pieces, crisp linens and plenty of corners to retreat for the afternoon with a good book. An outdoor infinity pool beckons holidaymakers on warm days, while the spa and wellness centre offers a menu of traditional and modern therapies.

Part 2: Groupon Travel

A melting pot of religions, experiences and of course international tourists, Phuket combines everything that can be expected of a tropical island destination and puts it all into overdrive. Idyllic beaches and lush forests are juxtaposed against the hectic energy of Patong, often referred to as the party capital of not just Thailand but the whole of Asia. Just a short hop to the south of this lies Karon, famous for its pristine beach and proximity to all the action of Patong without being in the thick of it.Travellers can simply enjoy the idyllic nature of Karon Beach during their stay or venture further afield to get a full taste of Phuket. Many restaurants, shops and beauty salons compete for attention in the area, with even more situated close by in Patong. This is where folks go for that frenetic Phuket experience, where hawkers tempt tourists with handicrafts, silk scarves and sarongs by day and clubs, bars and cabaret venues enchant party people by night. Simon Cabaret is renowned as one place not to be missed, with its dazzling show a feast for the eyes and ears.

On the other hand, Khao Lak is an even quieter alternative with its white sand beaches, slow-paced life style and picturesque natural surroundings. Exploring jungle-clad mountains and boat rides through limestone peaks are activities of choice, along with undisturbed relaxation on unspoilt shores.

Scuba dive or snorkel at nearby Similan and Surin islands, admiring the array of vibrant coral and sea life. Those feeling active partake in a trek through famous Lam Ru National Park, which boasts walking trails that wind through dense rainforest to open out on stunning waterfalls and mountain vistas. Then visit Takuapa Old Town and admire Sino-Portuguese architecture and charming shops, before heading to Takuapa Market and River Plaza in the new town to shop and chat with locals.

Travel Insurance

Travel insurance is a very important when travelling, I find that it gives me peace of mind.

Lets compare two different scenarios 

  1. Travel Insurance
  2. No Travel Insurance

Scenario 1 travel insurance 

We are going to Bali for five days, some areas of bali are a hotbed for disease. A large majority of Australians pick up chlamydia, so for this scenario we pick up chlamydia. Thank God we had insurance because our insurance pays for all the medical, however just as we thought that our luck could not get any worse we reverse into a tree. Luckily our insurance pays for that expense as well. We got insurance from travel insurance direct for $42.00

smiley-face

Scenario 2, no travel insurance 

We are going to Bali for five days with no travel insurance, dammit we have chlamydia and no insurance. Money down the toilet 😦 

OMFG, we reverse into a tree 

I definitely recommend getting travel insurance on your travels. Has this ever happened to you comment below

Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 review

Everyone knows that when you go for a holiday you need a good camera to get some good pictures like this picture that the Lumix DMC-ZS20 captured. I love the Panasonic Lumix ZS20 14.1 MP High Sensitivity DMC Digital Camera with 20x Optical Zoom (Black)
and i fully recommend the product, I will give some specs and features as well.

Quality photo

Quality photo 20x zoom

In my view when I consider buying a camera it needs to have a good quality zoom, and the Lumix DMC-ZS20 ticks that box 

Portable, light-weight, excellent design and good build quality.

Portable, light-weight, excellent design and good build quality.

Another plus is that the Lumix DMC-ZS20 has an excellent design, a good build and yet is extremely portable. When I have traveled I have seen Canon Cameras that are the same standard as the Lumix ZS20 but you have to lug  233 grams instead of 203 grams

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20 is a pretty remarkable point-and-shoot camera.Beyond its lens, the ZS20 has a lot to offer, including improved low-light photo quality from previous models and very fast shooting performance for this category of camera. 

For me its a great camera. All hail the Panasonic Lumix ZS20 14.1 MP High Sensitivity DMC Digital Camera with 20x Optical Zoom (Black)

TAJ MAHAL HISTORY, INDIA TRAVEl. Craving some australian history go here https://www.facebook.com/MARKIVIST

India Travel, you cant go to India without seeing the Taj Mahal, its architectural beauty, one of the seven wonders of the world.

The Taj Mahal was built in over 22 years, the Taj Mahal was dedicated to Shah Jahans wife  Mumtaz Mahal. Shah Jahan was a muslim army commander ah nd lost his wife after she gave birth to another child. The construction of the Taj Mahal began in 1631. The final request of his wife was for him not to marry again and prove their endless love by building a dreamlike beautiful mausoleum.

Rooms in the Taj Mahal, India Travel.

Ah the mystery continues again, this great mausoleum has a architectural style of Hindu and Muslim styles blended into one palace.

The Taj Mahal Consists of 

  • A forecourt
  • A great gate
  • A huge garden
  • A mausoleum
  • Tomb Chamber
