But taking a cruise has plenty of advantages, especially if youre
interested in full-service travel. /

What about the cost? / ?
The cost of flying continues to grow, and usually options like
snacks and Wi-Fi are not included in the price. Cruise prices, however,
include almost everything, except for alcohol and on-board casinos.

It was great! We stayed in the city of Ho hi Minh for three days and
then we headed for the resort where we had booked a very nice hotel. /

Was it a hotel chain? / ?
It was a local chain, I guess. We got a spacious room on the top floor
with a balcony facing the ocean. The room had a queen-sized bed, a
huge television on the wall and an iPad. Two days later they upgraded
us to a business suite for no extra charge. / , .

I have a friend who was bitten by bedbugs at a Five Seasons. High

personally never use amenities that a luxury hotel offers such as room
service and spa unless Im at a resort. I think the priority when selecting
a hotel should be safety, location and cleanliness. / .

1. What do you prefer traveling by plane or by cruise ship?
Both. It depends on what Im planning to do on my trip. If its a business trip, I take a plane. If its a vacation, I take a cruise (ship).
What are the advantages of flying (traveling by plane)?
Its the fastest way to get from one place to another. But its pretty
expensive. Additional amenities are usually not included in the price.
What are the advantages of cruise ships?
You can have a leisurely full-service trip for no extra charge. You
can make new contacts and friends too.
2. What do you prefer to do on your travels?
Im a big fan of active tourism. I like to go biking in the mountains. I
like scuba-diving and sky-diving.
Where do you usually go to dive?
My last diving trip was in the Maldives. I went there with my friends.
We took a boat to go from one island to another and made dives.
3. What kind of hotels do you prefer when traveling?
It depends on what I plan to do on my trip. If Im going to a resort
and plan on spending a lot of time in the hotel, I pick a high end hotel. If
I plan on going out a lot, I pick a cheaper hotel with good location.
Cheap hotels are not usually clean.
Thats true. I try to read a lot of reviews on the web before I make a
booking.
