Best Accommodation Deals in Hong Kong 0

Posted on March 21, 2010 by dorisch

I met a friend in church this morning and learned that she would be visiting Hong Kong in July. She asked about what were some best accommodation deals in Hong Kong and where were the better places to stay during the trip.

Well, unlike many countries in Australia and New Zealand, most tourists or travelers do not need to book or rent a car. Public transport is so convenient in Hong Kong that you can get around very easily with the train system and buses. Trams are also a good way to get around in Hong Kong island. So you really don’t need to worry about renting a car with car insurance when you are visiting the Pearl of the Orient.

As for the better places to stay, you can search your hotel online and find the best accommodation deals. Hong Kong island offers lots of hotels and I personally like to hang around Causeway Bay and Wanchai. Party goers can check out Central which I feel is a little too business like for me. Kowloon island is a great place to stay too especially in tsimshatsui and mong kok area. Basically it’s easy to find an affordable hotel if you aren’t traveling during the peak seasons.

So if shopping is your first love, then Hong Kong is one place you must not leave out in 2010.

The travel fair was reported to be well visited by thousands of visitors last weekend with many pre booking their holidays for themselves and their families. Travel fairs are the best place to get cheap accommodation rates, best accommodation deals and cheap air fares. Holiday packages are very popular with families who are looking for ways to save!

I’m one of those who like to get a travel guide before heading to my holiday destination. I will check out Amazon books and the local bookstores for the right books and references. Reading travel guides gave me a good idea of what to expect before I travel and it helps me to get more organized. Unless you are traveling with a tour group, you need to plan early and make your own reservations and booking with airlines and hotel partners.

The best accommodation deals are probably on the web and you need to search around for it. In any case, you can also talk to other travelers and get some information before you travel to the destination.

Book Early for Luxury Vacations 0

When you book a luxury travel vacation early, you have the first shot at getting the best cheap accommodation rates. From flights to hotels, this can really make or break the mood of your vacation, especially if it is a special occasion such as a honeymoon.

When you book early, you are also the first travelers to be granted requests such as a non-smoking room, king size bed, “roll aways” and such. Hotels and cruise lines will also go in order of booking date when they are offering free upgrades and extra amenities. And of course, if you have your heart set on a specific hotel, resort or cruise ship, the earlier you book, the better chance you have of getting to stay where you want. My cousin was planning to travel to another town for his bpi certification and had to book early to secure the best accommodation deals.

So if you are planning for a luxury vacation, start doing your search and secure the best and lowest rates.

Best Accommodation Deals in Luxury Hotels 0

Many luxury hotels are perfectly situated in areas of high interest for the vacation traveler. When seeking a hotel for vacation purposes (rather than business, for example), determine the location and nearby attractions. Many hotels offer an array of best accommodation deals, such as those included in resort settings or combined with a city’s downtown entertainment.

When traveling with children, it’s important to determine ahead of time a hotel’s policy for young travelers. Some do not allow children under a certain age, while some luxury hotels cater to families. Many offer childcare and children’s clubs, so the parents can get a few hours away while the kids enjoy learning something new such as archery or rock climbing. Some are even equipped with ps3 in the kids clubs.

For those seeking a vacation experience, it is also wise to find out if there are any conventions or other large events taking place while you are there. Hotels located in areas where multiple activities take place (such as in a city as opposed to a resort) are more likely to be busy, so find out ahead of time. This won’t guarantee that something won’t be booked, but you can lower your chances of booking your stay during a large event. Also, find out if any large tour groups are scheduled for the same time.

Best Accommodation Deals for Our Girlie Trip 0

Since the start of this new year, I have been receiving notifications of airfare deals for the year. With the economy picking up, more people are keen to travel and airlines are capitalizing on this surge.

I’m hoping to do a girlie trip with a few girl friends this year. They are counting on me for locating the best accommodation deals and itinerary planning. Since all of them hold jobs in administration, they are too busy with their day jobs that they have said that they won’t have time to do any planning. Traveling with a few girl friends can be fun as we can get to do the things we like without worrying about feeding the kids, pleasing our hubbies and coming home early. I know there’s going to be lots of fun and laughter throughout the trip!

I believe the best accommodation deals are normally secured when booking is done earlier, preferably months before the travel date. Another way to save would be to travel during the off peak season.

This dear couple friend of mine are planning to travel next week to their dream destination. After learning that they are becoming parents soon, they quickly book their vacation and pick the best accommodation deals as they know that traveling will be shelved in a few months’ time when the baby arrives!

It looks like there will be less strenuous traveling since she’s expecting. She’ll also be bringing the best prenatal vitamins to ensure better health during her pregnancy. Light travels will be best but it seems that they are planning to buy some baby clothing in the fashion outlets in the US! What a more timely vacation – buying and shopping for the new baby!

All of us parents know that it’s hard to travel when we have little ones so if you are expecting or planning for a child, maybe you would want to start visiting all your dream destinations first if you can’t afford the wait.

What Do You Look For in Best Accommodation Deals? 0

Posted on January 20, 2010 by dorisch

What do you look for when you decide to take up the best accommodation deals for your holidays? Do you choose customer service over price or do you choose quality over location?

Well, some travelers will say they want all that satisfy – good location, cheap accommodation rates, good service and quality amenities. Some even prefer to stay only in accommodations that come with breakfast. For all inclusive vacations, foods and beverages are all to your free helping and that may be good for those who don’t want to incur any more costs. Then again, if you are fussy and would eat only foods that burn fat, then all inclusive may not be for you.

To each his own, all of us have different priorities and differences when it comes to choosing the best accommodation deals. Whatever pleases you, make sure you know what you are getting into so that you can avoid feeling shortchanged.

When you begin planning a vacation, one of the most important steps is to get the best accommodation deals for your stay. After you have made your arrangements to take off work and get to your destination, you would need to plan your vacation budget and decide on where you wanna to stay. There are many ways to book your hotels, including buying a vacation package through a travel agent. However, more travelers are choosing online internet booking over going through a travel agent.

Rather getting someone to book your flights and hotels, online travel websites make it easy to compare normal hotels, research locations and check on availability. Most hotels have their own websites such as hotel reservation new york where you can enter your needed dates and get a quote for your stay. You do not have to enter credit card information to research rates at most hotels, so it makes do-it-yourself comparison shopping convenient for anyone with an internet connection. Some hotels even post layouts of their buildings, so you can choose exactly which room you want, rather than taking a chance on being right next to a pool full of screaming children when you are trying to get some much-needed rest and relaxation.
