Tips In Renting Stunning Boat Marina In Thailand

If you love cruising oceans and sleepy waters in Thailand, one of the things that you would look for is a Stunning Boat Marina in Thailand for the safe harbour of your boat or yacht. Before you sail to the area, it is best to check where you can dock your boat whether to take a rest or for emergency reasons. To give you an idea on what you should look for in a marina, take a look at the following tips:

Ample storage and wet berth

One of the things that you want to avoid is not having a place to dock your boat when you want or need to just because the marina cannot accommodate a bigger number of boats in the area. Thus, look for a boat marina that prides with its capacity to hold 80 boats and a hardstand that can accommodate up to 100 yachts. Not only that, choose a Stunning Boat Marina in Thailand that provides 24/7 security to boats docked in their premises. This way, you can rest assured that your boat and your personal belongings therein are safe while you are docked.

Excellent facilities

Another point to check is the facilities in the marina. Apart from the basic facilities such as water supply and electricity, the marina should be able to provide all the necessities related to contemporary living such as wireless internet connection, fax facilities, telephone and of course, an in-house fuel dock when you need to refuel for your next adventure. Find a boat marina where you can remain in touch with the world even when you are having a great time in your water adventures.

Additional services

Apart from great facilities, a Stunning Boat Marina in Thailand should also be able to offer additional services such as check and maintenance of your boat or yacht including workshops conducted by professionals on boat maintenance including boat dealership. It would also be great if you would go for a boat marina with boat and yacht supplies that you can purchase when you need to replenish your necessities.

Asia on a Small Budget: Best Destinations Having Low-Cost Hotels

Agoda, a Singapore-based hotel booking site, gave AFP its professional advice on the best locations to enjoy Southeast Asia’s blue waters without spending too much.

Vietnam

According to Agoda, Da Nang is a great beach destination in Vietnam. In this coastal city, a room at a hotel costs Rs 500 per night. On the other hand, their luxury hotel rooms can go as much as Rs 269,420! The booking experts suggest going to Phu Quoc, a must-see in the country. Travellers can secure hotel rooms lesser than Rs 6700 a night.

Myanmar

After going through a period of isolation, Myanmar is becoming a fashionable destination in Asia. Their beautiful beaches are found in Chaungtha, Ngwe Saung and Ngapali. No doubt, Chaungtha is the cheapest choice for travellers, where Agoda lists hotel room for less than Rs 3000 per night, 50% lesser than the other two destinations.

Cambodia

Cambodia still has well-hidden gems like Koh Rong Samloem and Koh Rong. Koh Rong, the 2nd biggest Cambodian island, is set to be a famous tourist destination in the next couple of years, according to Agoda. There is no better time to visit especially since a hotel room now costs less than Rs 3000 a night on average.

Malaysia

Travellers need not pay higher rates to stay near the country’s famous beaches. Penang, Langkawi and Tioman Island, Malyasia’s three desired beach destinations, all have fairly priced accommodations, with hotel rooms costing not greater than Rs 4700 per night on average.

Indonesia

Travellers can surely count on paying about Rs 6700 a night in one of the beachside destinations in Indonesia. Lower prices are offered in Bangka and Banyuwangi, with rooms under Rs 2600 per night. For an all-inclusive accommodation, with sea view and breakfast, Raja Ampat islands have rooms under Rs 8700 a night.

Thailand

To find the cheapest prices in Thailand, travellers must avoid its frequented tourist hotspots. Holidaymakers can get rooms costing Rs 3000 a night on average at a beach resort in Chanthaburi, located in the east. This town is 240 km (143 miles) away from Bangkok. Agoda suggests Koh Kood, Koh Mak, Koh Tao or Kamala beach for those that prefer staying near the beaten track.

Wedding business in Thailand

As mentioned by TAT, the wedding business in the world values at $298 billion, $80 million comes from the overseas weddings.
