Travel Guide - Home page
some travellers enjoy visiting remote destinations with the aim of uncovering
hidden gems through the likes of Asia, Africa and South America to experience
the natural beauty of the planet, there are those who prefer taking in
the bright lights and the culture of modern city life. If jumping from
city to city, spending a few days in each, sounds like an interesting prospect
then consider the ways to do it that won’t cost you (cliché alert)
‘an arm and a leg’.
use of various online travel comparison sites and then turning agents against
each other is certainly one way to see package holidays drop in price,
but with a little extra work and diligence you are able to piece together
your own deal. The cheapest flights tend to be found at the busiest airports
as there are so many flights available, combine this with hostel accommodation
and you already have the blueprint for a budget trip. However, for many
the concept of a hostel is a red flag situation. While hostels in eastern
Europe and Asia may be not be 5 star level accommodation, the ones found
in major cities tend to have a better finish to the upholstery, rest assured.
Nowadays hostels are of a better quality and you will be able to find rooms
that accommodate only those in your party rather than sharing rooms with
other travellers. Many also include en suite facilities.
what’s the plan? Choose from some of the highly rated hostels
in London to enjoy a long weekend visiting such landmarks such as:
course this list could go on, but these are some of the well known iconic
landmarks that thousands of tourists come to see each and every year. From
London you have a good base with airports that will offer flights to any
of the world’s most popular cities. Choose from worldwide hostel chains
or use extensive research to find cost effective accommodation per city,
if you head stateside next then you have plenty of options when it comes
to hostels in New York for example. Heading to the ‘Big Apple’ you’ll again
be in a city which offers a wide variety of flights to places such as Las
Vegas, Los Angeles while providing long haul options such as Rio de Janeiro
or even Tokyo.
you may be able to cut cost on accommodation and flights to some of the
world’s biggest cities the cost of living in those places will remain high.
However, what you save on travel you are able to put towards your spending
money which certainly works out well in this situation. Of course there
are ways to live on a budget in most places as visiting landmarks don’t
cost you a penny.
