Cheap Swimming Pool Travel Tip

Cheap Swimming Pool Travel Tip
It is often possible to enjoy the swimming pool, sauna, bar and other resort benefits without paying for the expensive room. I enjoy a swimming pool; however, when a Hotel has this feature it often double or triples the price of the Hotel room.

I have paid to visit many Swimming Pools in my 11 years of perpetual travel.

I am staying in the ThaPae Gate Lodging across from the Top North Guesthouse here in Chiang Mai, Thailand.

Swimming Pool at Top North Guesthouse in Chiang Mai, Thailand

I pay 150 Baht for a fan room, with Skype fast WIFI in my room. I walk across to the Top North Guesthouse and pay 100 Baht to use their swimming pool.

The minimum cost to stay in the Top North Guesthouse is 300 Baht for a fan room with no WIFI Internet.

Hotels have “Bundles of Benefits,” as I find my travelers nest, I try to Bundle all the Benefits in the same area, and I normally do not want them all in the same Hotel. For example, I like a restaurant, however I do not like a restaurant at my hotel, I like it across the street or down the block, and restaurants are noisy and often full of drunks.

I rate a swimming pool by the number of Bikinis, not by how clean it is, no Bikinis and a zero rating, I do not care how nice the pool is…

It would be good if you could post some pictures of the gals in bikinis. Are they mainly German? They tend to be loose, right? Are German guys permitted to bring bar girls to the pool at the hotel? Are there many katoeys in Chang Mai?

Statistics are like a bikini. What they reveal is suggestive, but what they conceal is vital.”

Interesting questions?

The best time to visit a swimming pool in Thailand and see bikinis is from about 1:00 pm until sunrise, the alcohol intake is high here. Be smart when choosing an apartment complex, visit the place when there are people at the pool if you like pools, however admit that only about 1 percent of tourist truly enjoy a pool.

99 percent Europe, USA and Canada here, with a high percentage of German girls Note, Chiang Mai is a horrible place to meet White Girls as this city is a two day and out city for most tourist. Maybe they hang around Pai more, but Chiang Mai is not a good place.

Koh Pha Ngan Island is your best bet for European Girls.

Thailand girls would need paid a lot of money to hang around much at a swimming pool, they all want to remain white, put on whitening cream and do better at watching cartoons and soap operas.

If you want colored action at a beach you need to go to Rio de Janiero, Brazil, I do not know of anywhere in Asia where the locals go to the beach long enough to spit.

We are going to add Private Message soon on this Travel Journal, it will allow readers to be better informed.

Always inspect the belly.

A private message board, will this be like The Mens Club?

Also, inspecting the belly......ewww

The more I read, the more I confirm my non-questionable reasoning for not swimming in a public pool.

Its all questionable to me.

We are going to give a person to send Private Message, the same as Facebook. You would have to be logged in to our site, then you could write another person. It would be private and they would not know your email.


PMs will allow readers to be better informed.
Why would you need to use PMs to be better informed?

Hide the email address.
Just dont put it there when posting.

Is there a fear of readers being offended by the material thats being posted?
And how can the reader be better informed, if the material that is being shared is in PMs (private messages)?

Some questions are better thought, rather than spoken.

As far as your back pain, you couldnt be in a better location for a heated, herbal compress or Tao Thai Therapeutic Treatment.

Sometimes you dont even have to pay a cover charge... just buy lunch or some snacks and they will usually let you hang out at the pool all afternoon. This works well in the Philippines.

So it might end up being the same cost as a cover charge, but you get a meal (or drinks for you and a girl) thrown into the deal.


it is definitely quite sure that if you will look out for the swimming pools in hotel where you are staying then it will increase the cost of the room by three to four times the original cost. hence you should definitely look out for the private swimming pools. they are much cheaper.
