London: This Place Is Incredible!


Believe it or not, there are actually quite a few things that you should do when you are in London on vacation.  Honestly, London is one of those places that you can not get away from and it is honestly a beautiful place to visit.  However, these things are life-altering things and life experiences that everyone in the world should go through.

First you need to make sure that you visit Big Ben.  This historical clock has been a sight to be seen for years upon years.  Next, you need to make sure that you take a river cruise on the Thames and take a whole lot of pictures.  After you are done with that, make sure that you take a ride on the London Eye, which is honestly the largest Ferris wheel in the world.

A trip to Buckingham Palace is next along with a stop down Oxford street with over 300 stores on it and you got yourself a beautiful and incredible vacation in London!

Plaza de Cibeles in Madrid Spain: It’s Beautiful!

Spain is definitely one of those places that has to be visited at some point.  There are so many beautiful things to experience and to be honest, if you take a trip to Spain, you have to stop by Madrid.  This beautiful town is one of the best in the world not only for the scenery, but also for some of the beautiful plazas that they have there.  For example, the Plaza de Cibeles is just one of the many hotels that you can stay at and just look at it!

There are also a ton of different tours available in Madrid to make sure that you do not miss anything at all and you will absolutely be incredibly surprised by all of the medieval and Spanish buildings in Madrid.  It truly is one of the most romantic cities in the world – next to Paris of course.

If you like to shop, you will get your fill here and you will also find all sorts of little restaurants and bars that are incredible looking and the food will taste fantastic!  So check out Madrid.  It honestly is one of the best places in the world to visit!

Beijing: It’s Definitely The Place To Be!


It has to be said that China is by far one of the most peaceful places in the world to visit.  Not only are there a ton of different things to see and experience, but it is all around peaceful and definitely one beautiful place to see.  Beijing is actually one of the most popular vacation destinations in the world and personally, I freakin’ love Beijing.  There are a ton of things to do and if you are a busy body, you can definitely keep busy here!

There is something for everyone in Beijing, but while you are there, you should definitely check out the Great Wall at Mutianyu.  This wall is definitely beautiful, totally wild and untouched and it actually runs over a bunch of different and beautiful mountain-tops, so you will absolutely have to see this sight.

Another sight seeing excursion should be the Forbidden City (Imperial Palace).  There are more than 9,000 rooms and it is actually spread over about two hundred and fifty acres, which makes this a very, very huge palace.  It truly is a sight to be seen by all!

Bangkok Thailand: It’s The Place To Be!


A lot of people simply have no idea that Thailand is one of the most beautiful places to visit and go on vacation to.  Seriously, while I, personally have never been there, I know that there is a heck of a lot to see and that there are so many things to do, you truly will be amazed.  For example, the Temple of the Reclining Buddha is definitely something that everyone should see in their lifetime.  This temple is one of the oldest and largest in the world and it is definitely a sight that should not be rushed.

Another sight to be seen is the Jim Thompson House, this is the guy that started the Thai silk industry after WWII and it features all sorts of Asian art, along with tons of different and unique displays.  This is a sight that should not be missed or underestimated.  There are also a ton of different cooking classes that you can take or you can simply relax in one of the many different spas available!

Thailand, especially Bangkok really has it going on and too many people think that it is just too hot and sticky.  It is worth the sight, the trip and the heat!

If you are looking for a great place to stay, Gatwick hotel with parking is near you! Or try your luck at cheap hotels in bristol.
