Tourism

One of the main sources of income in the country is tourism, with yearly visitors to Seychelles increasing over time. Even popular names like Prince William and Kate Middleton love vacationing on these islands.

Accommodation

Booking a Seychelles beach resort is a hassle free job, as the country has many luxury resorts to offer the likes of AVANI Seychelles Barbarons Resort & Spa. Based on your vacation needs, you can book your stay at the hotel or resort of your choice.

Things to do

Being a luxury vacation destination, golfing is a much-loved activity in Seychelles. When you are on the islands, take a look at the gold clubs in the area and try your hand at this gentleman’s game! The capital of Seychelles, Victoria also has a lot to offer, and if you set aside a day to look around, that would suffice. The capital can be found on the island named Male.

The Magnificence of Chao Phraya River – The Lifeblood of Thailand

The Chao Phraya was dubbed the ‘River of Kings’ by King Rama and before the network of highways appeared, various settlements throughout the nation relied on the river as their only link.

Present Status

More than 50,000 people still utilise the river as part of their commute, and its significance has only waned slightly as the times have passed. You’ll still find many wooden shacks floating over the river as well.

Man-Made Modifications

During the Ayuthaya period, the river underwent a series of modifications. Many canals were built that provided shortcuts to bypass the various loops and bends of the river. These range from 2km to ones that are longer than 10km.

Boats and Ferries

There are many options at your disposal to explore the Chao Phraya River. You can opt for a normal express ferry, or if you’re hoping for something a bit more luxurious, you can always go on a luxurious Bangkok cruise tour conducted by entities such as Anantara Cruises.

Fish

The Chao Phraya Basin is home to more than 280 species of fish, so you can actually witness a bounty of marine life by exploring the river. Due to human influence, many kinds of species have become extinct.

Sri Lanka, the Pearl of the Indian Ocean, is one of the most beautiful tropical island nations in South Asia. Boasting a 2500 year history, a rich and vibrant culture, breathtaking luscious mountainous terrains, and stunning coastal features, Sri Lanka is a great place for a relaxing and exotic vacation.

 

Negombo

One of the most popular tourist destinations on the West coast of Sri Lanka is the city of Negombo. Negombo is known for its rich history, its large lagoon, and it’s relaxing and quiet ambience. However, the highlight of Negombo is the stretch of pristine golden sandy beach.

 

The Negombo Beach

The Negombo Beach is widely considered to be one of Sri Lanka’s West coast’s most beautiful beaches. Stretching over several hundred meters, the Negombo Beach is one of Sri Lanka’s most easily accessible beaches. If you are heading to this attraction be sure to reserve your stay at one of the finest Marawila hotels the likes of Amagi Beach to get the best out of your holiday.

 

Time to get a tan!

The beach is also relatively secluded, in that it is rare to find large crowds of people at the beach. The beach is quiet, with just the noise of the crashing waves and gentle tropical breeze echoing through the area. Thus, it is a great location to chill out at or work on getting a perfect tan. The width of the beach is also sufficient for a range of beach activities if you feel like stretching your limbs while chilling on the beach.

Watersports

The waters are also great for water sports, especially diving and snorkelling, given that the waters of the beach are home to some beautiful coral reefs and marine life, as well as a 50-year-old shipwreck. The beach is dotted with various hotels, resorts, boutiques and shops, so finding accommodation and food is not a problem at all.
