If I say " There is this great place there", and could you tell me what's difference between these two sentences?
A: Have you ever been to Thailand?
A: There is this great place down there. 30 bucks a night, hammock on the back deck, ...
Thanks and have a nice day.

Thanks for you reply.
I got you, did you mean if I wanna say the south of the place, I could use "down there". Yet, it's a common use, I also can say " I go down there" or, " There's this great place down there", which means " down there" is not exactly to mean the south of place. SO, it totally depends on the meaning from the speaker himself, right?
There is this great place (down) there. It is up to you if you use "down". It is optional as you noticed.
If the place is not Really (geographically) to south but north from yours, consider using "up there". It is up to you again.
