Dear friends, I’d like to tell you about a famous metropolis – about Dubai . Have you ever imagined a mix of New York and Shanghai in the desert? Do you believe that it is possible to build an island in the ocean? Do you know that it does not matter for the ski resort what the weather outside is...
It was too hot to stay on Karon Beach (Phuket), so we decided to take a walk in the shade along the waterfront. There's Buddha monument on that hill. This is a view back. Here's the shade finally! This is a bridge. We bought few baby bananas (1 piece=0.30USD, as of 2016). Ice-cream!...
After visiting Kata Beach, it started raining and we decided to go to Karon Beach (Phuket). We went there by bus. We paid 35 baht=1 USD (as of 2016). Despite the rain, we were swimming. The beach was deserted. Usually, it stops raining quickly there. The sun came out. We were afraid...
We arrived at Kata Beach (Phuket) at about 11 a.m. Well, it was cloudy. It was not far from the beach. Here's the beach. Somebody's hovering... We were swimming enough. In the afternoon people leave the beach, and the birds come... Dark clouds gathered... It started raining. We decided...

Mumbai makes you feel like a grain of sand from distant foreign shores. You need some time to get used to this atmosphere. You'll see here poverty, slums and absolutely different way of living. Probably, the "Slumdog Millionaire" movie was filmed here. Everyone works, sells something....

1.5 hours drive from Palolem to the Baga Beach - and we can already see the contrast. There are so many people here. Even in the off-season. You can get a sunbed on the beach for free if you order something in the shack (restaurant). Once you laid down, the whole department store...

This is a review of South Goa in pictures.  Here's the Palolem Beach. To be honest, this place is just a big village. There are not many things to see. You can rent a scooter or a motorcycle and ride around. Lovers of relaxation will be offered to enjoy the silence, sea, weather and...

I'd like to share my impressions after visiting the most "European" part of India (Mormugao). In general, in India you transform into some unusual state and perceive the world in some special positive way. Even the beaches have some special aura. Sometimes children of the Hindus arrange...
Since I had only one day in Manila, I went on a tour to Pagsanjan Falls. This place is famous for the fact that one of the most brilliant movies of the 20th century - "Apocalypse Now" by Francis Ford Coppola - was filmed there. The main character of this movie is floating along ...

Langkawi is the largest island of the archipelago of the same name. The island is very close to Thailand, there are just 14 kilometers from here to the border. This island is a free zone, so the prices are pleasing. For example beer is about 4-5 times cheaper than in Kuala Lumpur...
