Magnify Thailand Small Hotels: Hua Hin Cha-am And Pranburi

Thailand Small Hotels: Hua Hin Cha-am And Pranburi


Category: Travel Guides
Description: The ' Thailand Small Hotels' series recommends to readers small hotels where the number of guestrooms does not exceed 60. The series also places an emphasis the on architectural and interior design of the hotel. We believe that the philosophy of being small means we are able to create an intimate atmosphere and be in touch with the hidden beauty in the comfort and convenience of the accommodation. Furthermore, it also helps visitors to experience the sensual art of local living in order to truly fulfil their holiday experience. The upper southern region of Thailand is comprised of three famous coastal holiday districts located along the Gulf of Thailand: namely Hua Hin, Pranburi, and Cha-am. The province of Prachuap Khiri Khan hosts Hua Hin and Pranburi, while Phetchaburi boasts Cha-am as its famous beach resort. In the past, Hua Hin was recognised among Thais as a holiday sanctuary for the aristocracy seeking an escape from Bangkok's summer heat. The name Hua Hin was prompted by the area's topography, which is made up of rows of stone hillocks lying along the fine beach. With a growing reputation, Hua Hin became even better known with the opening of the southern railway line and its associated infrastructure, which was followed by a 5-star hotel and a golf course. The prosperity of the area then peaked when the King Prajadhipok, Rama VII, commissioned the contraction of a summer palace, which he named ' Wang Klai Kangwo'. As a result, members of the royal family and other nobles increasingly spent time at Hua Hin, building their own holiday homes there. Today, Hua Hin is a renowned destination among tourists for its white sand, serene beach atmosphere, and safe swimming conditions. It is also only a short distance from Bangkok and is easily reached by road, rail, or air.

Grand Hotels Of Egypt


Category: Travel Guides
Description: From the earliest resthouses serving travelers on the Overland Route between Britain and Bombay to the grand Edwardian palaces on the Nile that made Egypt the exotic alternative to wintering on the Riviera, the hotels of Alexandria, Cairo, Luxor, and Aswan were always about far more than just bed and board. As bridgeheads for African exploration, neutral territories for conducting diplomacy, headquarters for armies, providers of home comforts for writers, painters, scholars, and archaeologists in the field, and social hubs for an international elite, more of importance happened in Egypt's hotels than in any other setting. It was through the hotels that visitors from the west-the earliest adventurers, then the travelers and, finally, the tourists-experienced the Orient. This book tells the stories of Egypt's historic hotels (including the Cecil, Shepheard's, the Mena House, Gezira Palace, Semiramis, Winter Palace, and Cataract) and some of the people who stayed in them, from Amelia Edwards, Lucie Duff Gordon and Florence Nightingale to Agatha Christie, Conan Doyle, Winston Churchill, and TE Lawrence.

100 Getaways Around The World


Category: Travel Guides
Description: Rooms with a view. A hotel is a hotel is a hotel? Not in this collection of 100 heavenly hideaways. When travelling for business, modern man and woman often prefer hotel rooms of the same type in London, Paris, or Shanghai. It's just more convenient. A different set of rules applies when they search for a place to celebrate a special family holiday, a weekend with a new lover, or a few days of blissful solitude with some great books. Suddenly a balcony with postcard-worthy views counts more than the number of TV channels, a sumptuous bed with a heavenly mattress and hand-ironed linens more than Wi- Fi connection in every nook and cranny of the hotel building. That's where this new Taschen collection comes in. A compilation of 100 hotels on all continents, in countries from Argentina to Vietnam, the two volumes make it a breeze to choose where to relax next. The gamut runs from dream castles like Villa Feltrinelli on Lake Garda (right) to the glass-fronted hipster chic of Juvet Hotel in Norway; from Mediterranean pensiones with nostalgic flair and moderate rates to the pricy-yet-worthy desert glamour of Amangiri resort in Utah's canyon county (top). Even dedicated web scouts will be tempted by this book to cuddle up on their sofa for a round of paper travelling. While fans of interior design might use it as an inspiring global selection of splendid sofas, beds, lights, and bathroom features. Features: 100 very special hotels and guest houses all over the world; from bed & breakfast basic to six-star luxurious; selected by Taschen's style and travel department according to criteria like stylistic harmony, location, service, and cost-performance ratio; each hotel comes with a reader-friendly chart listing the number of rooms, current prices, type of cuisine, amenities, plus the all important X-factor: the feature that makes staying there a truly unique experience; and the full scope of contemporary travel in two neat volumes, co eetable-sized and with countless glossy photographs.

Natural History Of Tenerife

Natural History Of Tenerife


Category: Travel Guides
Description: Tenerife is a remarkable island, dominated by Mount Teide, an active volcano higher than any mountain in mainland Spain. The island has extraordinary volcanic landscapes, and thousands of species of plants and animals that are found only there. The authors' love of Tenerife stems from its enormous variety of habitats with their complex plant and animal communities. They have explored the island from the laurel forests of eastern Anaga to the cliffs of Los Gigantes in Teno, from the semi-deserts of the extreme south to the richly vegetated slopes along the north coast, and from remote black sand beaches to the lavas of Las Canadas and the craters of Teide and Pico Viejo. Local Spanish experts have guided them to remote places and have contributed accounts of their own special interests. Introductory chapters discuss the extinct mammals, birds and reptiles, the island's ecology and the impact of people. The five main types of landscape (ecosystems) are then considered; coastal and lowland shrubland; dry woodland remnants; laurel forest; pine forest and high mountain shrubland. Some special habitats are also described including the lava flows and volcanic caves, with their unique highly adapted invertebrate animals. Both vertebrates and invertebrates are treated systematically while photographs and brief descriptions of hundreds of endemic species of plants are included enabling easy identification. The island's geology is also featured, in an account that covers both the oceanic context of the Canaries archipelago and the complex history of Tenerife itself, one of the most intriguing and most studied of all volcanoes. This comprehensive text provides a readily accessible and full account of an extraordinary island, referred to by Charles Darwin as 'perhaps one of the most interesting places in the world'.
