Bangkok is the capital of Thailand. There are people living abundantly but having adequate tourist attractions and consumer goods. Bangkok is a pleasant city with various hotels which can meet your requirement. No matter who you are, a businessman who is requiring some 5 star luxurious hotel or a student who is seeking for some cheap guesthouse with an excellent standard, you can choose your best one from those various choices.
For example: the 3-star hotel with quality and comfort. All hotels in Bangkok nearby Victory Monument BTS station have fair room rates and full-service. You can rent an apartment weekly, monthly and yearly as needed.

If you are a businessman, there are various hotels in Bangkok that we would like to recommend, namely, Peninsula Bangkok Hotel. This hotel has been continuously ranked among the best hotels in the world, locates on the banks of Chao Phraya River to the central city center and has excellent views of the river and skyline while sunset.Bangkok have the average temperature in low to medium level at 30 degrees Celsius throughout year. There will have heavy rain in September and October. However, it occurs with all parts of Thailand. Although it rains heavily but we can still see sunlight. If travelers would like to see the sunlight, Bangkok, a city of blue sky, will give you the nice experience throughout year, except in the mentioned two month period. There are many skyscrapers, colorful street markets, many located shopping malls and vigorous nightspots.

Bangkok’s Chinatown or Yaowarat has been held the festival for about 2-4 days (the next Chinese New Year Festival in next year is on January 31, 2014).

I love European Christmas markets. For me, sitting around in the cold drinking mulled wine and gorging on comfort foods with your loved ones is the perfect way to embrace the darkest, coldest days of winter. We were lucky enough to stay at a hotel right next to the main market in Budapest, and we made a point to stop by and enjoy a treat every day that we were in town.

BUDAPEST CHRISTMAS MARKET

BUDAPEST CHRISTMAS MARKET

We made sure to enjoy a daily mug or two of mulled wine. It is the best way to stay warm, after all.

Then we’d browse the Christmas tchotchkes…and enjoy a gingerbread appetizer. The Budapest market had an array of delicious traditional Hungarian foods to choose from. Just looking at these stews made me feel warmer.Kevin drooled a bit over the spicy Hungarian sausages.

By far our favorite part of the market was the discovery of kurtosckalacs, or Hungarian stove cake. It’s made from a thin piece puff pasty twisted around a wooden spit. The spit is then rolled over a hard surface to flatten out the dough, and dipped in sugar. Then it’s roasted over an open flame, caramelizing the sugar and toasting the bread.

Once it’s all ready to go, customers choose a “topping” of cocoa, walnuts, vanilla, cinnamon or coconut (we went with cinnamon). The bread is then wrapped up in cellophane, and handed over to drooling patrons like ourselves. The way the dough is wrapped around the spit makes it easy to tear off bite sized pieces for easy sharing. We agreed that chimney cake might be the best dessert either of us have ever had.

Happy Holidays, everyone. I’m off for some more mulled wine…

I had high expectations for Sopot. I’ve been to the Baltic before (in crappy Swedish weather, no-less) and loved it. I love being near the water, and I’m not one of those snotty travelers who thinks every trip has to have some kind of deep and life-altering effect on me (sometimes empty-headed relaxation is just what the doctor ordered), so hanging out in a Polish resort town should have been a really pleasant experience.

But I just couldn’t get into it.

SOPOT (POLAND)

It’s probably not be Sopot’s fault though. The weather was awful. We were tired. On top of that, everything was pretty much closed down for the season, leaving the town feeling deserted and cold. We spent most of our time there eating pierogi and reading, but we did manage to snap a few deceptively sunny photographs before the sky opened up and washed away my vacation dreams (rain makes me a little melodramatic).

The lesson in all of this: Go to Sopot in the summer. Because you might actually get the chance to enjoy it.

1. Visit the Citadel and Roman Amphitheater

4 THINGS TO DO IN AMMAN
4 THINGS TO DO IN AMMAN

The Citadel has been occupied for at least 9,000 years by a series of different civilizations, and the site is covered in ancient artifacts from Roman, Byzantine, and Islamic settlements. For a small fee of 15JD (roughly equal to 15GBP or 24US Dollars), you can hire a guide at the entrance. Don’t be afraid to haggle about price or refuse service from guides who seem questionable. Ask a lot of questions, and choose a guide who is experienced and willing to give you at least a full hour.

Just down the road from the Citadel is the Roman Amphitheater. You can enter the site for 2JD, and you don’t need a guide. The theater has amazing acoustics. Press your ear to one end of the wall at the base of the theater, and have a friend press theirs to the other end. Your voices will carry through the wall in a strange echo effect, sort of like an ancient game of telephone. Make the effort to climb to the top row of seats in the theatre and you’ll discover one of the best views in town.

Getting to the Citadel: Take a taxi. Your driver will offer to wait (for a fee), but it really isn’t necessary. Taxis regularly cruise through the parking lot looking for fares, and it’s a lot more fun to explore the site if you aren’t on a schedule.

Getting to the Roman Theater: We walked from the Citadel to the theater, but you will definitely need a good map (or GPS) to help you find your way through the winding streets of Amman. The easier (and less interesting) option is a taxi.

2. Eat at Falafel Al-Quds

This Rainbow Street falafel stand has been frying up delicious sandwiches for 40 years. For 2JD, you get a falafel sandwich with spicy sauce and vegetables. They’re small but tasty. If you ask nicely (and they aren’t busy), you can forgo the bread and buy a serving of plain falafel balls to snack on. It’s a takeaway place, but there are benches outside where you can enjoy your sandwich and some great people watching.

Getting to Falafel Al-Quds: Rainbow Street is about a 20 minute walk from downtown Amman, but you’ll definitely need a map or GPS and a good sense of direction to find your way. Taxis are cheap and easy, and drivers will all understand if you ask for Rainbow Street.

3. Drink Arak in a Rainbow Street Cafe

Arak is a colorless, unsweetened, anise-flavored Arabic liquor that really packs a punch at 50% alcohol by volume. It is served in a shot glass with a glass of ice and a bottle of water. When the ingredients are mixed together (ice first, then 1/3 Arak to 2/3 water) they react to form a cloudy white beverage best consumed with a mezze plate or garlicky snack. While alcohol isn’t forbidden in Jordan, few places have it on the menu. Luckily, the youthful and westernized Rainbow Street neighborhood has a few cafes that serve alcohol.

Getting there: As listed above, Rainbow Street is a 20 minute walk from downtown Amman or an easy taxi ride.

Where to drink Arak: Books@Cafe has a friendly, western style cafe upstairs, and an English bookstore downstairs. The cafe has outdoor seating with spectacular views of the city.

4. Wander through the covered market in Downtown Amman

The traditional fruit market in Downtown Amman is a treat for the senses. Fresh, colorful produce is piled on tables at eye level; each mountain of fruit is topped with a freshly sliced piece to tempt potential customers. Baskets full of exotic spices line the streets, and the scents fill the air and make your mouth water. Vendors literally sing for their customers, listing off the best deals of the day in melodious chants that echo through the market. Don’t be afraid to chat up the vendors, who are more than happy to practice their English.

Getting to the market: The market is just around the corner from the Roman theater, so it’s easy to take a taxi to one or the other and walk.
