New York is known for a lot of things. The place is always busy and adapts to changes that happens around it. Whether in the field of sports, entertainment and of course fashion, it just keeps on improving. One more industry that is growing is its lodging business.
The present recession greatly affected hotel industries in the US. Based on the information provided by Travlezoo, the lodging business last 2008 went down on a depressing value and was still pulled down by approximately nine percent in 2009. This 2010, despite the US current situation, New York City hotels do not seem to be affected. In fact, more hotel rooms and structures with astounding designs and remarkable services are popping out in the Big Apple. These hotels seem to be everywhere. There’s in Chelsea, Nolita and lower Manhattan. According to Chris Heywood of NYC & Company, the city’s tourism authority, guests can still enjoy and explore the genuine New York City even if some of these new hotels are located in the not so popular enclaves.

Many people like the idea of going on a camping trip. The desire to hie off and sleep outdoors starts when you’re still a kid poking around in the backyard after dinner, armed with a flashlight and a pack of snacks.
Camping’s appeal and the prospect of combining adventure and romance doesn’t really leave us as we get older through the years. We want to be able to pack our backpacks in a moment’s notice and escape into the wilderness. We want to sleep under a blanket of twinkling stars with an occasional comet perhaps, or a satellite; we want to go back to our roots and be one with Mother Earth, feel nature’s pulse and hear her speak through the flowing waters and whistling winds; we want to toast marshmallows over a warm campfire, and hear the flames crackle as we trade scary stories with one another or sing songs while another person strums a guitar. All of this sounds truly inviting indeed, however, the truth is camping does have some minor setbacks, especially if you’re a city mouse used to hot showers and bubbling jacuzzis.
With a history that dates back more than 5,000 years ago, it’s no wonder that China’s culture is so rich and diverse. There is so much to learn about this massive country that serves as the home to over a billion people. Travelers who have been to China can keep coming back for years on end and still be amazed to discover new things they didn’t know about the country before. But let’s face it, not all of us who want to pack our bags and schlep them to China can actually afford it. Fortunately for there rest of mankind, the Chinese held on tight to their culture so much so that wherever they went, they made sure that they will maintain their traditions and maintain their distinct identity.

Despite the fact that Rangoon is no longer the capital city, it remains the most populous and most important city of Burma ( or Myanmar, if you wish). It counts 4 millions inhabitants, and suffers in some of its neighborhoods of its poor infrastructure (no rubbish collection, no permanent electricity). But Rangoon, and the all Burma are really fascinating, despite or due to the military dictatorship. Here comes the key question: doest it worth visiting Burma? Thus shall we support the military junta, or the simply poor people ? Fact is, that most of the hotels are under the rule of the junta, but I still am for visiting this country. Thus even the simply people could get contacts and even earn something. The chamber maid, the taxi driver, the street vendor will surely take a profit of your visit, and this is very good for the country.

No one can really talk about New York City without mentioning Brooklyn. It has been, for at least a century now, one of the most populated boroughs in the Big Apple. The most prominent people live here including publishers, politicians, executive bankers and advertisers. It’s funny, though, that despite its popularity, very little of it is known to outsiders.
Aside from the great place to live and raise your kids in, Brooklyn also makes for a great weekend destination. Below are five of the best neighborhoods to visit if you’d like a quick pan of New York’s finest.
Your Brooklyn trip won’t be complete without Coney Island. This is a short one hour train ride from Manhattan, and it used to be popular for its resorts and amusement parks.

Say goodbye to concrete and hello to a small beach (if you’re visiting in the summer) and a neighborhood right with history.
