As one of Britain’s primary cities on the music scene, Manchester continues to thrive with musical prowess. From the Madchester days of the Stone Roses, the Happy Mondays and the eponymous Bez, to the new additions to the music library including the Ting Tings, Manchester has delivered its fair share of rock anthems.
Oozing with individuality, this north western city is a haven for gig goers and revellers, and with plenty of music venues and cracking rock n roll bars on offer, visitors will leave completely satisfied. Spend an evening in the city at one of the Manchester hotels from Travelodge, to see what’s really in store.
Big Hands is a late night bar near the university and perfect for some post-gig drinks, if you don’t mind the grubby nature of the bar. Any fully fledged rocker will be accustomed to the typical surroundings of a rock and roll bar, so this one shouldn’t really faze them.
Despite the ease of modern travel, which has led to an overabundance of tourists in every corner of the globe, there are still some places for the loners and adventurers to discover. Though we can’t promise there won’t be other tourists on-site after this post, we can promise you some unique attractions.
Despite being a great tourist destination, you don’t need to stay on Thailand to enjoy your holiday. There are a variety of tour operators along the coastline that will happily transport you to the surrounding isles, for a small fee of course. Here you can explore to your heart’s content, before returning to your Thai accommodation at sunset. The island of Ko Adang has a variety of hiking trails, jungle waterfalls, and sandy white beaches. Ko Mun Nork is another nearly-deserted island, with only one resort, so you'll likely find very few tourists here. Kayak, swim, snorkel, and relax on one of the sala piers at sunset.
Many people would like to go on adventure trips abroad but feel hampered by not knowing anyone else who wants to accompany them. The good news is that an increasing range of options are available for the solo traveller, with adventures to North America often especially interesting.
