Rather, tourism in different places manifests itself in its own way:
What can you find for yourself on the territory of the countries of the South-East? To begin with, it is worth noting that the main subject of curiosity for people of any age and nationality is the seas, as well as snow-white beaches. There are incredibly many such miracles in this zone. At the same time, the available natural resources can boast of an incredibly high quality indicator - from a deserted beach to comfortable little things in a hotel, like an orchid in a toilet that can be found every morning.
The reason for such a celebrity in most of these resorts is the simple and kind desire of local residents to please foreign guests. It is not for nothing that one of the countries in this region is referred to as "the land of smiles". It would be correct to apply this description to the entire territory of Southeast Asia: people smile here sincerely and very often.
People come to the countries of Southeast Asia to admire. The rarest animals and active volcanoes, surprising the traditions of the local population, as well as the delights of the best gastronomes, that is, all the riches that Asia has prepared for curious tourists in all its corners. It should be noted that the southeast of Asia is also famous due to the fact that the most wonderful collection of the most ancient values and culture of all mankind is located on the territory of this zone. Take, for example, Buddhist monuments of incredible beauty - from the Shwedagon Pagoda in Myanmar to the "Buddha footprints" in Laos.
After all, a variety of athletes from all over the planet strive for the amazing nature of Asia.

Consider the countries for recreation for 2018, where any Russian can have an inexpensive vacation. We will mainly touch upon the territories of Asia. We will find out the budget for a trip to cheap destinations for the whole family and children, where to stay, and note the local cuisine.
Today, due to the protracted economic crisis, a popular trend among Russians has become the choice in favor of inexpensive countries for recreation. At the same time, not everyone knows that you can relax abroad with high quality and cheap. So, the article will tell you about the top budget countries for vacation.
Budget - $ 50-60 for two per day + transfer (the cost of the flight from different cities of Russia and the CIS is different, so everyone has the right to decide how to fly to this country, and which flight option will be more economical) ; on average $ 800-900 for two.
If you book a room in Laos hotels in advance, you can get a comfortable double standard for $ 15-20 per day.
Lunch in a simple restaurant will cost a tourist 6-10 dollars, and if you choose top tourist establishments, it will be twice as expensive.
All sights of the country are paid, but the price of excursions on average does not exceed $ 3 per person. You can significantly save on the transfer by renting a motorbike (only $ 9 per day).
Duration of the trip: 14 days (this is the maximum period, you can certainly vary the length of your stay, but if you fly so far, to an exotic country, then it is better to enjoy your vacation to the maximum)
You should definitely get acquainted with the capital of Laos, Luang Prabang, visit the Bokeu National Park, look at the U River, Bolaven and Pakse waterfalls, and cruise along the Mekong River to the south.
If the period of stay in the country does not exceed two weeks, then a visa is not required, but a prerequisite is the presence of a valid passport, which is valid for more than six months.
Tourist Laos is distinguished not only by high quality service and low prices, but also by incredibly beautiful nature, a lot of historical and architectural sights and the absence of crowds of tourists. The disadvantages are the poorly developed tourist infrastructure, lack of access to the sea (although there are more than enough places for swimming) and the lack of direct flights (connections at airports are not always convenient).
Central Asia is a large eastern region, which includes Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan. These countries are closely linked historically and geographically. Therefore, tourist routes often combine visits to several of them, introducing them to the main attractions of the ancient lands that were inhabited by nomads and where the Silk Road passed.

Let's continue exploring the expanse of water? This time we go to the Caspian Sea in Kazakhstan.

Mangyshlak is a different dimension. This is an autonomous kayak trip in the format of exploration in one of the most beautiful places in the Caspian - the Mangyshlak Peninsula. A high steep coast, which was washed by a huge ocean 5 million years ago. You can still find prehistoric fossils in the sand today. A dry wind rustles the sand. The salt water washes your feet. A mirage looms over the horizon in the heat of the sun. The land of nomads and wandering sages - Mangystau.

See the sea, walk on the steppe, climb a mountain, visit underground temples, breathe in the salty air of the desert, overcome gorges and spend the night in a yurt. Here it is, the smell of freedom, which you want to inhale, over and over again.
For some, sex, like travel, is a search for new emotions, impressions and experiences. But everyone has their own point of view on this matter, and therefore we go on trips for something special. What about Asia? Remember what associations you have with her if you were not there or what do you know if you were there?
By the way, it has long been known that many elderly single Europeans and North Americans live in the countries of Southeast Asia. Let's figure out why and give advice to our travelers.
It has long been known all over the world that countries such as Thailand, Vietnam and Japan attract many sex tourism lovers.
The most famous of these countries (especially for lovers of non-trivial and unconventional sex) is Thailand.
Pattaya Resort is the world capital of sex tourism. Here you can find both girls and men and women-men and vice versa. Everything here revolves around this indrustria: hundreds of massage and go-go salons and bars, many so-called places for games. You don't need to look for adventure in this country, they themselves will find you in a couple of minutes. For example, in Phuket it is very easy to get acquainted with a Thai. One has only to go out in the evening for a walk on Bangla Road and she will get to know you herself. Just be careful that it is not a tranny :). To get acquainted with a particularly beautiful Thai woman, it is still worth investing a little: spend a little time to find her on the street, or in one of the many bars on Bangla Road. I made eye contact, smiled and she made the acquaintance herself. Taiki are very funny and active. By the way, there is a chance to spend time and get adventures free of charge, but that is if she likes you very much. It is worth noting that in the country prostitution is official and the priestesses of love are constantly checked by doctors. In addition, at the entrance to the hotel they take an ID-card at the reception, that is, you will definitely not be robbed. In Bangkok, the sex industry is also good, but there are many ordinary tourists and people. An ideal place to combine sex tourism and cultural tourism. One temple of the reclining Buddha is worth something.
Not much behind Tai and Vietnam. However, the management of the socialists in the country gives its own flavor. Brothels are more like pioneer rooms with an overseer. It's just that it's much more difficult to get to know a Vietnamese girl on the street or in some kind of institution than with a Thai woman in Thailand, they are more distinctive and restrained. The easiest way to meet an adventure Vietnamese is to visit a massage parlor and she will suggest you adventures during the massage for an additional fee. She knows what you need. The main thing is to have an additional cache for this case. Not so free morals, but still this country attracts millions of people.
Japan attracts sex tourists with geisha. But I have to disappoint you: real geisha will not serve non-Japanese people. Yes, there are hotels where a pseudo geisha will come to you. But this is 99% Southeast Asia. And if there is no difference, why pay more?
Turkish medicine is rightfully considered one of the most progressive in the world. The country is in the top ten in demand in terms of the development of medical tourism. Even German citizens go here to undergo treatment and carry out the necessary operations, who receive the same highly qualified medical care in Turkey, but pay 2 times less.
This selection was followed by the journalists of the Russian Reporter on the basis of information from Internet resources, so it should not be treated more than as a general advertising description. There are hundreds of no less interesting places in Russia, but in the indicated places, of course, there will be other options for proposals. However, in general, for an ecotourist, this is a pretty decent list of places worth visiting.
