สถานการณ์การท่องเที่ยวในประเทศไทย

ประเทศไทยเป็นหนึ่งในจุดหมายปลายทางการท่องเที่ยวของชาวต่างชาติที่มีชื่อเสียงของเอเชีย และนี่คือเหตุผลว่าทำไมอุตสาหกรรมการท่องเที่ยวของประเทศไทยจึงคิดเป็นอัตราส่วน GDP ของประเทศที่สูง เมื่อ 10 ปีที่แล้ว อุตสาหกรรมท่องเที่ยวคิดเป็นอัตราส่วน 6.5% ของ GDP ประเทศไทยทั้งหมด แต่ปัจจุบันนี้ได้เพิ่มขึ้นเป็น 9 – 10%

การสำรวจที่จัดทำขึ้นเมื่อปลายปี พ.ศ. 2558 พบว่ามีจำนวนนักท่องเที่ยวมากกว่า 30 ล้านคน และอัตราเข้าพักของโรงแรมเฉลี่ยนอยู่ที่ 75% ในช่วงไตรมาสแรกของปี พ.ศ. 2559 มีผู้มาท่องเที่ยวประเทศไทยแล้ว 9.04 ล้านคน เพิ่มขึ้น 15.45% จากปีที่แล้ว ด้วยอัตราส่วนในระดับนี้ มีการคาดหมายว่าจะมีนักท่องเที่ยวรวมทั้งหมดประมาณ 34 – 35 ล้านคนเมื่อครบสิ้นปีพ.ศ. 2559 นี้ นักท่องเที่ยวต่างชาติต่างสนุกสนานไปกับสถานที่ท่องเที่ยวหลายๆ แห่งในประเทศไทย รวมไปถึงการลงทุนในคอนโดติดหาดหัวหิน หรือในเขตที่มีศักยภาพในกรุงเทพฯ แต่ภาคการท่องเที่ยวนั้นก็ไม่ได้มีปัจจัยขึ้นอยู่กับเฉพาะนักท่องเที่ยวชาวต่างชาติเท่านั้นแต่ยังรวมถึงนักท่องเที่ยวในประเทศด้วย

ความสวยงามของประเทศไทยที่ถือเป็นสถานที่เที่ยวยอดนิยมแห่งหนึ่งในเอเชียตะวันออกเฉียงใต้ ไม่ว่าจะเป็นการไปเยี่ยมชมวัดพุทธที่เก่าแก่ จนถึงการพักผ่อนที่คอนโดติดหาดหัวหิน หรือที่รีสอร์ทตามเกาะต่างๆ  หรือในอุทยานแห่งชาติที่ยังมีธรรมชาติบริสุทธิ์สวยงาม

Strategies to Use for a Transformative Volunteer Experience

The decision to volunteer abroad is not easy. You will be away from your family in an unfamiliar environment wherein you are expected to provide your skills and services to a local community. However, it can also be extremely rewarding. In fact, a lot of volunteers claim that they had more to gain from the experience than the community they choose to volunteer to.

Volunteer Abroad

To make your time as a volunteer in Fiji worthwhile and become a transformative experience, and not just to while your time away, here are some strategies you can use:

Talk to Someone Whose Volunteered Before

It does not have to be related to your current volunteer project or in the same destination as you are headed to. However, that would be extremely helpful if you can find one. Try to pick their brain when it comes to preparing for what’s ahead of you. Even though you are prepared mentally and physically about the challenges that lie ahead, it will still be tough to adjust. But the more you know ahead of time, the better able you can condition your mind and body of what is to come. Culture shock is a huge part of the struggle that people who volunteer abroad have to face. But there is nothing that you cannot overcome with enough preparation.

Offer Your Skills

To become a useful volunteer, utilize your skills as much as you can. If you are good at teaching, spend your time teaching school kids how to read or write. If you enjoy arts and crafts, you can train local women on crafts they can use to make livelihood from. It is easier for you to immerse in the experience if you enjoy it and you feel like you have something important to offer.

Raise Funds Before Leaving

You cannot depend solely on the funds available through the volunteering agency you joined in. It is important that you have extra money on your own so you can pursue projects that you think might benefit the community. Most of the funds available through the volunteer agency sponsoring your Fiji travel have already allotted those for basic expenses such as food and travel allowance for volunteers. Not all volunteers are wealthy people; thus, raising funds for your trip is a good way to be able to provide the needs of the locals that are not anticipated at the start. More details at Involvement Volunteers International.

Prepare to Fail

Whether you are new to volunteering in Fiji, or volunteering in general, it is always good to communicate with fellow volunteers and volunteer coordinators. Even the best laid out plans fail. And when your initial efforts fail or do not produce the results you want, it is important to come up with a backup plan. Volunteer organizations with lots of experience and credentials are able to make a way out of a sour situation. It is your responsibility to be in-the-know about the latest developments within your volunteer projects.

There are lots of challenges that go with the decision to volunteer abroad. But with the pointers above, you can turn that volunteer project into something valuable for the community, and for you as a person. Visit them online at http://www.volunteering.org.au/volunteer-abroad.html.

Why Pursue Teaching as a Volunteer Abroad?

Volunteering abroad is a rapidly growing venture for young people who are going through a gap year. When faced with the decision on what type of volunteer work to pursue, there are many options available. But one of the most rewarding volunteer projects you can join in is to become a teacher. A lot of children in third world countries like Cambodia do not have access to education. Volunteering in Cambodia as a teacher is therefore both a beneficial experience for the students and you, the volunteer.
Volunteering Abroad
 Why Volunteer as a Teacher?
If you are intimidated by the idea of becoming a Cambodia travel volunteer as a teacher, don’t be. This is one of the volunteer positions that require experience. There is also no need to undergo training prior to your stint as a volunteer in Cambodia. As long as you went to school yourself, you will be able to pass on basic knowledge to your students. You are, however, expected to handle yourself as a professional teacher. This will enable you to earn the respect of your students and make them learn from you even more.
How to Prepare
Volunteering abroad as a teacher requires careful planning on your part. Just like a real teacher would, you need to have a lesson plan. This will serve as your guideline when teaching the students in class. First, you have to determine the subject you are teaching. You can also vary it up – for a given amount of time, you will be focused on one subject and then move on to the next.
If you are not an expert on a certain subject area, do not fret. These students only require general knowledge on a subject. As long as you know something, any knowledge that you impart to them will prove valuable in the long run.
The next important step when preparing your lessons for your kids at a local Cambodian community is to determine your teaching style. It will be difficult to communicate and teach the students since English is not their first language. Hence, it might be a good idea to learn a little bit about the local language. This will enable you to communicate with them directly and with ease. If you can speak their language, they will also feel more comfortable listening to and communicating with you.
Keep it Fun
Even though your aim when you are volunteering abroad as a teacher is to impart knowledge to your students, keep it fun! Children learn more when they are having fun. Make sure you incorporate fun and games into your lessons. This will get the children’s attention and also keep them attentive. You can vary up the approach you use for teaching to determine what method works best with the children. Keeping your lessons varied will also capture their attention – they have something to look forward to when they attend your class.
Teaching is a noble job. Hence, volunteering as a teacher is a good choice. Whether or not you have the natural passion for teaching, you will love this volunteer position especially when you become a tool for learning for these children.

Chinese Restaurants in Pattaya – A Cuisine Everyone Loves

Pattaya is a famous tourist destination in Thailand and attracts millions of people from all over the world, throughout the year. Apart from the many attractions that the tourists look for and enjoy, the food is an important aspect people enjoy in Pattaya and keep coming back for more. Among the different types of food that people enjoy here in this beach resort town, there is a preference for Chinese food. If you are headed to Patttaya in the near future and would be keen on trying a Chinese restaurant Pattaya based, just read on.

res

Many Forms of Chinese Food

The general refrain among the foodies is that there are many varieties to what is popularly believed to be Chinese food. It is only an avid traveler, with a keen sense of enjoying food, who would be able to clearly distinguish between the authentic Chinese cuisine and any other food, which is offered as Chinese food, but might not strictly fall in that category.

However, in Pattaya, you can expect some very good Chinese restaurants offering the whole range of dishes that have made this a popular choice of food. From the humble noodle to the live preparation of seafood delicacies, there will be no end to the mouth-watering experience you can expect to enjoy in a Chinese restaurant Pattaya based.

The Ambience is Also Equally Critical

Many people look for the right place to have food. To start with, you would want the place to be very quiet. Too noisy an environment might be a huge distraction and the purpose of visiting a good restaurant to eat and enjoy tasty food would be lost. Besides, the setting and layout of the food outlet should be pleasant as well. Then once you enter the Chinese restaurant, would you be willing to wait to get a seat? Well, no, as you are there to enjoy a relaxed holiday, and the last thing on your mind would be waiting in a restaurant to be seated to order and have your dinner or lunch. To save the trouble of waiting, you can make an advance reservation in a restaurant of your choice. Lastly, besides the food being of good quality, you would want the staff in the restaurant to be polite, nice and hospitable. The Chinese restaurant Pattayastaff should be willing to help you with suggestions on what is the best dish of the day.

Variety of Dishes Also Counts

When you have chosen to stay in Pattaya for a few days and wish to visit a particular Chinese restaurant regularly, you would want the restaurant to serve different dishes every day. So your selection of the food outlet should be based on the range of dishes you can order and taste, instead of consuming the same dish every day. If you even take seafood, you can order a fish delicacy one day and a crab or a prawn dish the next. There are specialized restaurants within hotels such as the Ming Xing Restaurant in the Cape Dara Hotel in Pattaya. You should go through the reviews from tourists who have enjoyed the food here and then make your choice.

Segway tours can make you go far to see the beautiful environment

Trying something new in life is what is interesting always; especially if that new thing is meant for fun and luxury. Tourists, most of them from across the world, do the same activities which sometimes could be very boring. You can have a mesmerizing view of the streets through the Segway Algrave tour operators offer, which is very is to control and use as you ride around. No disturbances, everything looks cool and people can go as far as they want, as long as they had  in mind all the directions back to the hotel. Segway is one of the innovations that have been introduced in the tourism industry which is very eco-friendly.

Features of the best Segway tours

Sometimes people are not aware of the streets, and they don’t know where to go. Hence, the Algrave Segway tours need to be guided by tour guides who have knowledge of all the streets for the tour to be fine. Mostly, these tours need to be taken on well-established roads where no stones or rough surfaces are available for them to be perfect and satisfactory. Every Segway is normally given to one person; so demos must be conducted for all new Segway users to ensure that they don’t cause accidents and hurt themselves.

For the Segway Algrave tours to be excellent, one needs to ensure that all the devices or automobiles provided are well functioning to avoid regular breakdowns, which could be so embarrassing and may corrupt the happiness of the user. The guides should be at the front to direct the guests which way to follow to achieve the purpose of the tour. They need to be very strong and have an excellent pooling system because some parts are very mountainous. Every person needs to be well educated on the operating system of the Segway to ensure that he or she knows how to use it well.

Hit the streets all day without getting tired

Algrave Segway Tours are for people who want to know the various parts of a certain place without getting tired. People riding this should wear helmets for protective purpose so that in case one falls, the head is not going to be injured. The helmet is normally provided by the tour organizer because they are the ones who provide the segways.  Every route is highly examined to ensure that it is not dangerous for the users who want to enjoy the Segway tour in the foreign land they don’t know about.

For people who would like to have these Segway Algrave tours, they need to book the number of hours in which they want to enjoy moving around. Full concentration is needed when driving this automobile because it has only two legs and one steering with a place to support yourself, meaning you can easily go off it. They need to be easy to operate so that even the people who are new to them can use them easily and quickly without taking much time.

But there are several ways you can keep your hotel costs low. Before you plan for your next trip you might want to consider the following points.

sathorn hotel

Stick to your budget

The first thing to do when planning for your vacation is to determine how much you want to spend on your hotel stay. After that, decide what luxuries and conveniences you desire in a hotel. Also determine the amount of time you’ll be spending in the room. If you’ll use the hotel for just sleeping, a simple, a less luxurious Sathorn hotel will be ideal. This will allow you to dine at expensive hotels and engage in a lot of activities. On the other hand, if you’re not ready to compromise your hotel experience, you may consider cutting your vacation short to save money.

Be flexible

If your schedule at work is flexible, you might want to spend your vacation during the off-season. Taking a vacation during the off-season will cost you less, and in addition, keep you off from contending with crowds. Even booking a hotel during the mid-week, instead of during the weekend, is much cheaper.

Choose location wisely

Staying in a hotel which is at the heart of the town might cost twice as much as a hotel just a few kilometers away. There are many travel websites offering maps that you can use to determine the location of hotels in Sathorn. While you choose a hotel based on its location, you might want to consider its distance from attraction sites. If the distance is too long, you’ll end up spending a lot on parking costs and transportation fares. The wisest thing to do in such a case is to find a hotel near the places you intend to visit. You’ll save a lot of money if you only have to walk to your attractions.

Revisit the same hotel

Visiting the same Sathorn hotel each time you travel to Bangkok can score great deals for you. If this happens for a few years, you’ll become acquainted with the hotel’s reservation personnel and even the managers. When you book your hotel room, mention that you previously stayed in the hotel. Most hotels want repeat visits, and they will provide special offers for such guests. They might decide to upgrade your room for the same price or offer it at a better rate.
