Oversupply Of Accommodations In Bangkok Could Hinder Growth

It cannot be denied that the hotel industry of Thailand has grown so much in the past few years fueled by the high demand from arrivals of international tourists in the country. However, this could be a bad news because a high supply in the coming years could be a cause of moderate incomes for the economy. There are now many luxury hotels in the country such as Ad Lib Bangkok Hotel and they are thriving at the moment because of the high demand.

In a recent research that was conducted by CBRE regarding the hotel industry worldwide, demands for hotels all over the region of Asia-Pacific, Europe and United States have grown since the beginning of the middle of 2016. While other countries are suffering because of the weak and slow growth, these regions have experienced a strong industry and the occupancy rates are higher than before.

There are many factors that affect the demand for hotel and the main driving factors are the changes in preferences and the demographic of the consumers. Preferences refer to their desire to experience quality service compared to material goods. Older generations prefer to spend their money on activities while millennials are geared toward traveling thus hotel demand is growing.

Independent travelers are common these days because of technology which makes thing accessible such as booking a hotel, researching on things they can do on the foreign land and exploring without fear of getting lost.

Hotels are therefore challenged to up their game because independent travelers are expecting quality service along with good food and an ideal place to stay. Value for money is also important. It is now easier for travelers to look up a hotel online and read reviews from previous guests who could influence their decision to book or not.

Hotels in Bangkok such as Ad Lib Bangkok Hotel are also using third party sites in order to expand their reach. At the same time, they must improve their services because of the number of competitions such as the rise of Airbnb. The hotel industry of Thailand continues to grow and it is up to the operators and owners to adapt with the changes as the supply increases.


The Natural Way To Pest Control In Newcastle

It’s alright to have few spiders living with me in my home. It has been years since the last time I sprayed insect repellent. Now I need to organize a pest control in Newcastle as the bugs in my home are growing in numbers.  It’s about time to add some natural treatments.

My main drive is to avoid chemicals, but I recently knew that by preventing pesticides, I may be helping out to reduce bugs in my home.

Elizabeth Lowe, a biologist from the University of Sydney was recently interviewed by Journalist Amanda Hoh. Lowe is currently studying the impact of urbanization on the biodiversity and plentifulness of spiders and has discovered that killing them can result in the increase of other pests.

Lowe says, “that if we kill the spiders, which are natural moss-troopers, it will enhance the number of mosquitoes and cockroaches living within or near the home.”

Spiders feed on numerous household pests such as termites, flies, cockroaches, silverfish, moths and mosquitoes. Instead of killing these insects with pesticides, scientists recommend the best treatment is to let them be. You may want to refer this to a pest control in Newcastle if this is the best treatment for pests.

Healthy Home Healthy Family author Nicole Bijlsm furnishes few great advices for controlling alarming pests in your home without resorting to harmful pesticides.

  • Do awaywith their food. Food odors can easily attract pests. Clean up after eating each meal, keep pet food in sealed containers, and keep compost bins and garbage away from the house.


  • Do away with their shelter. Keep the outdoors and indoors clutter free.


  • Design a physical barrier to avert pests from coming inside. Seal all gaps and ensure all doors and windows have fly screens.

You may not prefer pest control in Newcastle, but there are a variety of natural pest control options. For instance, you can deter ants by sprinkling pepper, turmeric powder or cinnamon along their trail. It’s also proven that ants disappear when the food they were interested in is cleaned up or always kept clean.

Sticky traps can control the increasing numbers of cockroaches in kitchen cabinets and the plastic fly swat can perfectly control flies.

In Sydney in Down Under Australia, there’s a one that is included in the very limited number of affordable accommodation offerings which is commonly known as the Chisholm Cottage. It has been running since 1996 and its main purpose is to give families around NSW a home away from home which they can use whenever they are in the process of undergoing medical services. During last October of 2016, Chisholm Cottage had to be temporarily closed to the public to allow major renovation and repair works which included roof repairs in Sydney to make sure that the entire structure remain sturdy especially against the storms and other natural calamities. In addition to this, the temporary closure allowed the management of the cottage to install new and up-to-date accommodation facilities that are both functional and contemporary. Earlier this month, the cottage was finally reopened by the Honourable Rick Colless, MLC.


Google Adds New Booking Functions To Maps And Search

For those looking for a salon to deal with their bondi hair, dealing with the hassles of having to reserve an appointment is something that has to be either minimized or avoided outright. Tech giant, Google, apparently agrees, if their new release is anything to go by.

Google has recently released a new expansion for their Reserve with Google function for their Google Search and Maps app, which lets users book wellness and fitness classes conveniently through their mobile phones. The new addition extends the functionality of the Reserve with Google function to include selected salons and spas, allowing users of the function to book their appointments for their bondi hair with little fuss. The selected salons and spas have partnered with Google specifically for this new expansion to the Reserve with Google function.

The tech giant released news about this new expansion with a post to their blog, posted on the 13th of July, 2017, handled by Google Maps’ Product Manager, Alex Russell.

Exploring The Islands Of Greece

As a first-time tourist to Greece, you will never be able to fathom its magnitude unless you have actually been there before. Greece covers more than 200 inhabited islands and it has more than 6,000 isles in different sizes. The islands that are inhabited offer a unique character that differentiates it from other islands.

The islands are grouped into six major groups and there is the single island that stands out among the rest, Crete. Travel between islands is accessible but traveling from one archipelago to another can be a chore though it is possible. Going around Crete will be easier if tourists will book a rental car from Flisvos because there are a lot of walking involved and if travelling with a group, it is cheaper to rent a car than to commute every time especially if they are staying for a minimum of one week.

Out of all the islands, only 25 have their own airports and eight of these are international airports. It is best to book a few months before your vacation because of the number of tourists going especially during peak season. If travelling be sea, it would be a relief to know that the large islands are being served by ferries as well as the majority of small islands. If you are renting a car from Flisvos, you will be able to drive from one island to another with the help of a car ferry.

The best months to visit Greece are either June or September because the weather is nicer and the crowds are lower. During peak season, you have more options when it comes to restaurants but there will be a lot of competition and the prices are comparably higher.

If you are planning to drive around, remember that majority of the cars offered by car rental companies in Europe such as Flisvos are operating in manual shift. There are automatics but it can be expensive and the models are rare. If you want to drive an automatic, make sure to book a few months ahead of the visit.
