Honeymoon Planning For the Wedding Couple 0

Posted on June 27, 2009 by dorisch

I just talked to a couple who will be getting married in 3 weeks’ time. Naturally in a conversation like this, we will be discussion about wedding plans and honeymoon trips. Like many wedding couples, they are only taking a short break for their honeymoon since this is summertime and it wouldn’t be easy finding cheap accommodation rates in some places.

Many think that selecting the best honey moon vacation package is very difficult. It is not so in reality. There are so many honeymoon vacation packages are available for you to choose from. Honey moon time is relaxation time, enjoying time and time for understanding the spouse. Hence the couple should select the package quickly and be worry and stress free. Before any plans can be made, the couple would need to select the budget to spend and the destination.

For my friends, they are too busy handing out wedding invitations and preparing for their wedding ceremony details that the honeymoon is left to the travel agent. That might be a way to delegate and focus on the foremost important task at this moment.

Finding a hotel in Singapore is so easy and convenient these days. What more, you can search for best accommodation deals with no hassle with the help of the internet.

I was checking out some Singapore hotels who are offering cheap accommodation rates after reading that many hotels are offering free night stay during the Great Singapore Sale. Some of the good and affordable hotels to stay in Singapore include Grand Park City Hall, Elizabeth Hotel, Marina Mandarin, Orchard Hotel and Citadines Apartments at Wilkie Road, to name a few. Personally, I like the ideal location of Fairmont Hotel and Swissotel but it can be a little pricey. For good location and better affordability, Carlton Hotel is a good choice. Even though some travelers’ reviews aren’t so favourable, I haven’t had any issues with this hotel after staying there for a few occasions. Plus, the Chinese restaurant serves good tim sum.

I was pleasantly surprised to read that hotels in Singapore are offering special deals during the Great Singapore Sale. From what I read, you can get best accommodation deals such as getting a free night stay in selected hotels. This is not only good news for travelers but for the locals who have no plans to travel overseas.

After a few days’ break in Singapore, I feel so refreshed. I had a good time shopping even though I wished I had more time! Whenever I’m in Singapore, time seems to fly pass so fast. Many retailers are offering good discounts and if you are feeling the credit crunch during this economic crisis, this is a good time to save on your purchases. Though some retail shops are only offering low discounts, you can expand your options and shop in places with real bargains. Grabbing off season clothing will help to save some bucks too.

Whether it’s buying Mp3 players or a spa package, taking a trip to Singapore during the Great Singapore Sale is a good time. What more, you can get the best accommodation deals in some 5 star hotels!

Cheap Accommodation rates in Singapore 0

Looking for nice and cheap accommodation hotels can be tough when you are traveling to cities like Singapore and Hong Kong. Most of the time, cheap hotels are dodgy, filthy, far from the city and have poor facilities.

When we were in Hong Kong last year, it was hard finding cheap accommodation that were nice and well located. Being a city with the scarcity of land, most Hong Kong hotels are small in space and can get expensive during peak seasons. Finally we settled for Lanson Place and I fell in love with the apartment hotel and location – awesome place.

Now, if you are traveling to Singapore and would like a nice, decent and clean accommodation to sleep for a night or two, you may want to check out Hangout @ Mt Emily. Situated in Mt Emily, about 10 minutes leisure walk to the Dhoby Ghaut train station, this is a beautiful and chic hotel that offers cheap accommodation rates. Dormitory rates start from S$34 which includes a basic breakfast. I mean, if you have been to Singapore, you know that an accommodation iat the edge of the city would have cost more. With all the basic facilities, this place caters to all the needs of a traveler.

I’m definitely going to recommend to a friend in the debt consolidation business who is searching for cheap accommodation rates in Singapore. With turbulent times like these, staying in a chic hotel like this is truly a gem find. Otherwise, you can compare hotels and search out more great places to stay in Singapore.
