Good article! But I'll start with the fact that I'm not a fan of the "seal" rest, because for me it is much more interesting to explore and discover something new, to walk on unknown streets, to meet new people. But when there is no energy for active life, and, in fact, the rest, I always do this: buy a ticket to Phuket, 4 days Bendigo lie on the beach, and from there begin their active traveler. This year I took a summer vacation and realized that to go to Sochi I absolutely do not want, so the choice fell on Ty. "In Thailand this summer?", - asked my friend, "Yes," I answered and thought "seriously, what is Thailand in the summer can be", because we are well fed, but going to the website for the tours and seeing the amount that I have been on the map for my journey, the idea is then embodied in the purchased ticket. To say that mentally I have not had a rest - to say nothing! Warm sea, gentle sun, the cocktails (easier in the morning, in the evening in an adult), pleasant tourists in other rooms - a real thrill! During this period, fortunately, on the beaches freely and quietly, which, of course, could not but rejoice. I left sooooo happy. So, if you came up with the idea - not keep a idea, embody, tourism intuition will not fail ...

admin November 14, 2019

But in General no problem to find. Of course, with the boatman in the bargain, it's not about self control, I guess. Can of course search the Internet, and on any beach ask boaters you all organize. Less likely, IMHO, in Patong. ...
