Southport Still Has Something!

Southport is a prosperous town in the north west of England. Its Victorian charm means that is has maintained its status as one of the most popular seaside resorts and today is still a fabulous place for a trip. A self-catering cottage in the UK makes the perfect place to stay on a trip to Southport, by day take in what the north of England has to offer and by night sit back and make yourself at home in front of a log fire.

Southport has been attracting visitors to its beach since 1792 when the first hotel in the town was built. During the nineteenth century the town became popular with tourists who could travel to Southport via canal from places like Liverpool. Later on, the building of the railway meant that more and more people could come from further and further away meaning that Southport grew really quickly to be much more like the town it is today. Nowadays, the legacy of Southport’s Victorian past is visible all over the town centre. In the main shopping street, tree lined Lord Street, the Victorian architecture is clear to see and it’s a great place for an afternoon of shopping.

No trip to seaside Southport would be complete without a walk (or ride) down the pier. Southport’s pier is the second longest pier in the UK which even has a tramway down the middle of it to take visitors from one end to the other. At the end of the pier is an old fashioned amusement arcade that only accepts old pre decimalisation coins, a little nostalgic trip into the past that is really lots of fun.

One thing to note about Southport is how far the sand reaches out with no sea. On a clear day when the tide is out it seems perfectly plausible that you could walk the six miles along the sand to Blackpool. It is in fact impossible although people try every year and end up needing to be rescued from the quick sand.

Away from its seaside heritage, Southport also holds various shows and events throughout the year including the Southport Flower Show and the Air Show. In 2012 the Southport Flower Show will be taking place between the 16th and 19th August and is the largest independent flower show in the UK attracting tourists all around the UK. This year the annual Southport Air Show will be celebrating its 21st birthday. The event attracts tens of thousands of spectators each year to see many different types of aircraft flying across the skies above Southport.

Anyone out there who is planning for a holiday to Bali? If yes, here are some things I can impart to you especially if you are looking for cheap Bali hotels or any other form of accommodation in this island. As a traveller to Bali, you don't need to worry about finding for affordable accommodation because this so-called "famed Island of the Gods" has a vast assortment of cheap Bali hotels from really very cheap to mid-range ones. Depending on your type, needs or budget, there are a wealth of guesthouses, upscale resorts and villas and dorm accommodations that are scattered on the island.

Since Bali is very famous with its world-class diving and surfing, many cheap Bali hotels specialize in the surfer trade from gorgeous Ulutwatu to wild Kuta to tranquil Canggu.
This is also one of the reasons why this Indonesian island is a top destination for many tourists and visitors from all corners of the world.

Bali is also widely known for its vibrantly spiritual culture and decadent tropical partying. For these reasons enormous range of accommodations are available to every tourist from backpackers to the super-rich. The best place for backpackers can be found in Kuta, which has the cheapest and sometimes shabbiest digs on the island. The super-rich ones usually head to the many five-star resorts in Nusa Dua, Seminyak and Ubud.

If you want some quite beaches but fairly happy accommodation, Sanur and Jimbaran are the perfect place for you. Legian also offers a good range of accommodation. Traditional villages in the district of Canggu with rice fiend scenery, also offer affordable and good range of accommodation. If you simply want to rest and revitalize, the perfect place for you is Amed. Private villas for rent are also getting famous in Bali. It is usually complete with staff and top-class levels of service.

Three different currencies are accepted as payments for Bali hotels and other accommodation. The most common one is in U.S. dollars. When a hotel is owned by a European national, Euro currencies are sometimes accepted. Indonesian Rupiah are accepted especially for lower-end places but not always. Credit cards are also accepted as payments.

My Top 5 Favorite Hotels in Las Vegas

It is nice to always remember the past vacations we had. One of the most exciting and longest vacation I spent was in Las Vegas. Could you imagine all the fun you will have when visiting the so-called, "Entertainment Capital of the World" and for two months period? Isn't it a real great time? Some people say that if you want to visit different places around the world, go to Las Vegas! I believed I agree with it now.

Special thanks to my sister and her hubby for sponsoring my vacation especially the plane tickets they booked for me at Delta Air Lines Flights online. It was so far the cheapest one they can find in the internet. I truly had a wonderful and fun holiday in this fabulous city of Las Vegas.

Let me introduce to you my Top 5 Fave Hotels in this city.

Caesars Palace- Not really 100% Rome but at least you feel like you are in Rome, Italy because the theme of this luxury hotel is based on Roman Empire. It has five towers, the Augustus, Centurion, Roman, Palace, and Forum and has total of 3,349 rooms.

the lobby of Caesars Palace hotel in Las Vegas strip during my vacation last 2008.

I love gallivanting in this hotel from time to time. This was also my favorite shopping venue with its Forum Shops. This is where I spent most of my shopping escapades when I was in Vegas. I also loved dining here. The highlight of my visit in this hotel was when I witnessed the show of Elton John called, The Red Piano. It was wonderful.

Bally's- This is also one of my favorite hang-outs in Las Vegas. My cousin who is a singer used to perform in a band in this hotel. Everytime their band plays in Bally's, I was also there. I guessed, I only missed their play once.

the adjacent hotels, Paris and Bally's.

One of the signature features of the hotel is the neon lighting wrapped around the covered moving sidewalk that brings guests from Las Vegas Boulevard to the entrance of the casino. It is also noted for its large shopping area. I bought some souvenirs in one of their shops in Ballys. It is also famous for its Jubilee show.

Paris Las Vegas- At the time I spent my vacation in Las Vegas, I haven't been to Paris, France yet. In fact my vacation in Las Vegas is one of my inspirations why I really wanted to travel. Now it is one of my passions.

You can see the replicas of the Eiffel Tower and a two-thirds size Arc de Triomphe, a replica of La Fontaine des Mers, and a 1,200-seat theatre called Le Théâtre des Arts in this luxury hotel. Paris Las Vegas is linked by a promenade to its sister property, the Bally's Las Vegas.

Bellagio- When I think of this hotel, I also think of the amazing Fountains of Bellagio, a large dancing water fountain synchronized to music. It was a very fantastic show and free of charge. Bellagio is home to Cirque du Soleil's aquatic production "O".

One thing that I love to visit in Bellagio is its Conservatory and Botanical Gardens. I was amazed by the beauty of its flower collections inside. There are five seasonal themes that the Conservatory undergoes: Chinese New Year, Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter. I experienced the spring display last 2008.

Luxor Las Vegas- I might not be able to visit Luxor in Egypt yet but I am happy to see and to experience Luxor in Las Vegas. I just felt like being in Luxor, Egypt too. I was amazed by the architecture of this luxury hotel. It is highly modernized and has contemporary design.

Luxor Las Vegas has a lot of facilities and attractions. Among the few are, four swimming pools and whirlpool, 29 retail stores, shows like Carrot Top, "Criss Angel - Believe", "Fantasy" and "Menopause the Musical.

I wish to visit Las Vegas again in the future. I want to board with any American Airlines flights in my next visit there. I just want to have an experience flying with this airline company. This time, I will won't only visit Las Vegas but also other cities in the U.S. like New York, Chicago or Phoenix. Someone promised me to witness and to attend their wedding next year.

I also hope in my next visit I can already spend some overnights in any of these hotels.

Was in Bellagio Las Vegas

I had been to some places in Italy but never been to the municipality of Bellagio. But I am very happy because I had the chance to visit Bellagio in Las Vegas. It is a luxury hotel in Las Vegas Strip, Paradise in Nevada. I love especially watching the Water Dancing Show here, also known as the Fountains of Bellagio.

I am happy to know that Bellagio Las Vegas was inspired by the Lake Como resort of Bellagio in Italy. Here is Bellagio Las Vegas during my 2008 vacation there.

I love watching the Fountains of Bellagio!

The World Inside Caesars Palace Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada

I am showing for the first time My World in Las Vegas. This picture was taken by me last May 2008 during my vacation in Las Vegas. This is the Spiral escalators at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas, Nevada, United States. I just love the monuments and architecture inside this hotel. That is also the reason why I spent most of my time inside this hotel dining, shopping, playing games sometimes and yes I was able to watch the Red Piano Concert of Elton John at the Colosseum in Caesars Palace. That was a very interesting show! I love it!
This blog is joining for the first time this meme. Feel free to visit My World Tuesday for more photos around the world. Special thanks to MWT Team for this fantastic meme of seeing different places and faces of the world!

On Top of Hilton Hotel in Mactan City, Cebu

I was disappointed because there are a lot of pictures that were corrupted during my vacation here in the Philippines. I don't know what really happened to it but I can't find it anymore in my SD cards. Anyway, I am just sharing this picture of mine taken on the 20th floor of Hilton Hotel in Mactan, Cebu. I am getting tan right now. I guess I am enjoying the warm weather in the Philippines. What a beautiful scenery you can see on top of Hilton.

Cheap Hotels in London, UK

I always love to travel. One of my greatest dream in life is to travel around the world, visit and see interesting places and experience other countries' culture and tradition. Probably this will come true immediately if I win the lottery. But anyway, I had been already to some countries in Europe and the world like Austria, Luxembourg, Italy, Czeck Republic, Italy, Switzerland's border, Singapore, Hongkong and some more to mention. I just had a stop-over back in 2003 in London, Heathrow International Airport , the first time I arrived here in Germany.

Touring Europe is not so bad because I live in the middle of it. I live presently in Germany, my new home country and already a citizen of it. I planned since last year visiting UK, especially London. My friend who was there last year sent me some postcards which made me more excited to visit this place. I plan to stay in central London hotels this coming summer.

Hopefully my husband can go with me so it will be more romantic and exciting. I just found out today while browsing that Knightsbridge hotels also offer cheap accommodations. If you happen to pass by at London Gatwick airport, cheaperthanhotels.co.uk also offers affordable and cheap hotels there. London Paddington Hotel is also a good place to stay if you want to experience the ambience and amenities they offer.

I'll see you there then in summer!!!
