Interesting places for tourism and travel.
Where to go to winter.
First, the Russians lost Egypt, and now – Turkey. Let’s remember the best directions for those who are looking for where to wait for the severe Russian winter. Southeast Asia, Latin America or Europe – choose what you like.
Climate: From the eternal + 30 � C in the south by the sea to a refreshing coolness in the mountains in the north.
Prices: After the fall of the ruble, Thailand is only slightly cheaper than Russia. The cost of rent and local food is noticeably lower than in Moscow, but European products and many goods will have to be overpaid. But for 30-40 thousand rubles, you can rent a whole house in some Phuket. If you’re lucky, even with a swimming pool.
Visa: Russians can spend up to 30 days in this Buddhist country without a visa. A single-entry tourist visa (which is easiest to get in Russia or bordering the kingdom of Laos and Malaysia) allows you to stay in the country for up to 90 days. Two-time tourist was canceled in November this year, and they were replaced by a half-year multivisa, but it is rather difficult to get it – only in the country of permanent residence, having produced many documents.
Why go: For fresh fruits, sea / mountains, “Sabai” – a common atmosphere of friendliness and relaxation.
Pitfalls: Insects, including malarial mosquitoes – the latter are rare, but can cause a lot of inconvenience. In addition, it should be borne in mind that visa legislation has recently changed frequently and is not always predictable.
Climate: The long and hot Israeli summer ends in October. From November to May there is a rainy winter season. On the coast, the winter is mild, and in the mountainous regions it is relatively cold. A couple of times a year even snow falls in some areas.
Prices: Israel can hardly be called a cheap country. The average price is 1.5 times higher than in Moscow, which frightens off many winterers. But the soft visa regime, the prevalence of the Russian language, the rich history and charm of Jewish culture allow it to remain one of the popular destinations, despite the high cost.
Visa: Up to 90 days visa-free entry for Russians.
Why go: Touch the shrines.
Pitfalls: Israel is still in a state of war with Palestine, and here it is troubled. In addition, the Israeli stamp in the passport can close your entry to many Muslim countries (and vice versa).
Climate: Because of the monsoon climate, it is slightly cooler in winter and not so hot in summer, as in other countries that are at the same latitude. The main disadvantage is the high humidity during the rainy season.
Prices: Vietnam remains a relatively cheap country for Russians: housing prices and most of the products in Hanoi are half that in Moscow. Lunch for two in a medium-sized restaurant will cost around 1,000 rubles, and you can have a snack in a street cafe for 100-200. It is unpleasant to surprise unless the cost of dairy products – and the love of local residents to inflate prices for foreigners.
Visa: Only 15 days without a visa, which the winterer will not be enough. A visa for three or six months upon arrival in Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh City for citizens of the Russian Federation is free of charge, but it is necessary to receive in advance the so-called “Approval Letter”.
Why go: For a budget beach holiday in the style of bounty, beautiful views, and also ponostalgirovat on the Soviet past.
Pitfalls: Accustomed to other Southeast Asian countries, Vietnam may seem a little less hospitable and benevolent, and in tourist places it’s easy to stumble on scammers.
Climate: The climate differs on different islands, but everywhere is very mild – the temperature does not fall below 23 � C and rarely exceeds 28 � C.
Prices: This is one of the cheapest tourist destinations in the world. Renting an apartment with one bedroom in the capital of Jakarta will cost 70% less than in Moscow, with two – more than 100%. Street food here is worth a penny, and the average bill in the restaurant is about 500 rubles.
Visa: Upon arrival, a 30-day stamp or a 30-day visa with the right to extend for another 30 days. And a tourist visa made in Russia will give you the right to stay in the country for only two months.
Why go: We say “Indonesia” – we mean Bali, we say “Bali” – we mean surfing. In addition, here is the most developed “expat community” in all countries of Southeast Asia. However, for someone it will be a minus.
Pitfalls: Inconvenient conditions for renting a house (payment is required for the whole period). On the streets in the dark is unsafe – passing motorcyclists can snatch a bag.
Climate: India is a big country, and climatic conditions depend on the region. In popular Goa in November, only the beach season opens, and in the Himalayas at that time there is already snow.
Prices: India regularly enters the tops of the most budgetary countries for recreation. Of course, shopping in outlets of Mumbai and a couple of nights in luxury hotels in Delhi will not be cheaper than in Dubai. However, in general, prices here are phenomenally low. 1,5 thousand rubles a day – and the life of the king in the Indian provinces is assured to you.
Visa: Since the fall of 2014, an Indian visa, which will give you the right to stay in the country for up to six months, can be done on the Internet – you just need to fill out a questionnaire, pay a visa and print an invitation that has come to the post office. The visa is valid only if you have arrived to the country via an international airport.
Why go: For the most part, wintering in India is divided into two groups: some are interested in enlightenment, others are hanging out. Both of them find what they want.
Pitfalls: Alternative views on sanitation (most visitors come as early as the first week with an upset stomach and, as a rule, not the last) and the monstrous poverty of the local population. In addition, in non-tourist places, single girls in the evenings appear on the streets unsafe.
Climate: In Bulgaria, summer is not all year round, but winter is much warmer here than in Russia. January is the coldest month and the average temperature in the country is from -2 � C to + 2 � C – for many it is much more comfortable temperature than +30 � C in some Thailand.
Prices: Bulgaria is the cheapest country in the European Union. On average, living here costs 1.5-2 thousand rubles per person per day. Prices in restaurants are almost two times lower than in Moscow, and rental housing costs three times cheaper – 12-15 thousand rubles for a one-room apartment in the capital.
Visa: If you have multiple Schengen, you can enter Bulgaria with him. Otherwise, you will have to issue a visa, but it will not require a lot of documents, time and effort.
Why go: Behind the sun, sea, wine, quiet family vacation and the lack of a language barrier.
Pitfalls: It is difficult to say that life is boiling here.
Climate: The country is stretched from north to south, and the climate here varies from subtropical to alpine tundra and glaciers. Santiago resembles the Mediterranean.
Prices: Prices in the capital of Chile Santiago slightly lower than Moscow or comparable to them. Rent one-room apartment in the center will cost 25-35 thousand rubles a month, lunch of three dishes in a restaurant for two – in 1,5-2 thousand rubles. Unpleasant surprise may be the prices for the Internet – they are on average three times higher than Moscow.
Visa: 90 days of visa-free entry.
Why go: Behind mountaineering, temperate climate, diverse nature, fruits and wine.
Pitfalls: Far flight and expensive air tickets.
Climate: In the area of Acapulco on the Pacific coast, daytime temperatures do not drop below + 30 � C throughout the year, and night temperatures range from + 21 � C to + 24 � C. The coast of the Caribbean Sea is a bit cooler. In Oaxaca around the year around + 20 � C.
Prices: In the capital of Mexico, relatively inexpensive housing – one-room apartment can be rented for 20 thousand rubles. Prices for other goods are also lower, but not so much. For 100 thousand rubles here you can get about the same level of comfort that in Moscow for 140.
Visa: If you have a valid visa in the US, you can enter Mexico without any visas for six months. If not – a free e-visa will give you the same 180 days in the country.
Why go: Over the sea, stunning views, the ruins of the Aztecs, Maya and other Indian exoticism.
Pitfalls: As in Chile, a distant flight and expensive air tickets. And a frightening crime rate is the highest of all countries in the list. There are whole cities where drug traffickers run everything. And the capital can seem too hot and dusty.
Climate: Spain is one of the warmest countries in Southern Europe.
Prices: Moscow as a whole is slightly cheaper than Madrid, but in the Spanish capital it’s a little cheaper to rent a house. We can assume that you will have to spend at least as much comfort as you used to spend at home – but not much more.
Visa: To get to Spain, you will need a Schengen visa.
Why go: For golden beaches, wine, diving and surfing schools, extreme sports – and shopping.
Pitfalls: Many travelers complain that the country is more expensive than they expected.
