Hi my readers:
As I said in the welcome message, one of the topics that I probably would speak about was “Travelling in Europe or around the world.” So, this is the topic that I’m going to deal with today! Before I start I want you to know that the places that I have visited are few but the places that I want to visit are a lot due to several reasons. I’m going to talk always from my point of view giving my opinion about the topic. I hope you like it!
One of the places that I visited last christmas was Paris. I think that there are few people who haven't visited this beautiful city but I’m going to tell you where is located and the main characteristics of the “city of love”.
Paris is the capital and the most populous city of France. It has an area of 105 square kilometres (41 square miles) and a population of 2,229,621 within the city limits.
Concerning climate Paris has a typical Western European oceanic climate which is affected by the North Atlantic Current. The overall climate throughout the year is mild and moderately wet. Summer days are usually warm and pleasant with average temperatures hovering between 15 and 25 °C (59 and 77 °F) and in winter, sunshine is scarce; days are cool, nights cold but generally above freezing with low temperatures around 3 °C (37 °F). The precipitations are high.
I think that Paris itself is very nice and is a very known city because of fashion, tourism, and of course due to the number of Monuments and attractions that it has. The most famous ones are: The eiffel tower, Notre-dame, Arc de triomphe, Palais du Louvre, Sacré-Coeur, Panthéon, Opéra Garnier, Les Invalides, Palais du Luxembourg, … and I promise that they are amazing.
If you go in winter you will have the opportunity to see the decorated shop windows which are spectacular and the variety of markets that they always put on Christmas. If you do not have much time the best way to see Paris is taking a tourist bus near the Arc de triomphe for example, that's where I picked it. It costs more or less from 7 to 12€ and is usually a journey of about two hours in which you will see the buildings that I have mentioned before. In conclusion I must say that Paris is one of the cities that you have to visit if you are interested in culture, historic buildings, fashion, museums or only for a holiday. And of course you can’t go to Paris without eating the delicious croissants!
On the contrary if you are someone who has already been in this amazing city, and if you liked Paris you have the opportunity to visit another town with similar architectural style,
San sebastian is the city that resembles Paris by its French buildings. San Sebastian is a city and municipality located in northern Spain, on the coast of the Bay of Biscay and 20 kilometers from the border with France. The city is the capital of the province of Gipuzkoa, in the autonomous community of the Basque Country.
Therefore if you are from another country and you don’t know San Sebastian I encourage you to go!
Now I am going to talk about a place I would like to visit. This place is……….. Thailand, Bangkok!
Situated in Southeast Asia, Thailand, Bangkok has a tropical savanna climate under the Köppen climate classification and is under the influence of the South Asian monsoon system. It experiences three seasons, hot, rainy and cool, although temperatures are fairly hot year-round, ranging from an average low of 22.0 °C (71.6 °F) in December to an average high of 35.4 °C (95.7 °F) in April.
Thailand from my point of view is a perfect site for all type of people. It is a favorite destination for backpackers, but also "five star" tourists. For those who want to enjoy the beach and those who prefer adventure in the mountain. For the lovers of the hustle and bustle of the city and those who need a moment of relaxation. For those who love food…
These are some of the reasons:
Temples: Its architecture is an explosion of bright colors that combines the bread of Gold, shining figures of Chinese porcelain, mythological animals, lush vegetation, warriors and sacred images of Buddha.
The food is delicious: The combination of spices and new flavors catches you. Sweet, bitter, spicy, acid and salty come together in the same dish. You can enjoy the Thai specialties at street stands for a few bats or in luxury restaurants.
Besides Bangkok night hosts many cultural events: theater, concert, festivals ...
There are very beautiful landscapes : At the National Park of Khao Sok yo can do trip by canoe along the river and also you can live a unique experience and lead to its impressive valleys on the backs of an elephant.
There is nothing as to rest for a few days in a beach of crystalline turquoise blue waters and surrounded by palm trees. The island of Phuket is a reference point for tourists in Thailand. Long white sand beaches bathed by the warm Andaman Sea and the entertainment that the traveller could want.
I hope this blog will help you to decide where to travel or what to visit in these sites.
