Second only to flights, accommodation is one of the biggest travel costs. For those travelling on a budget, here are a few tricks to spend less on accommodation.

Time It Right

You’re likely to spend more on accommodation when travelling at peak times. Hotels tend to be most expensive in summer and around national holidays and festivals. By avoiding these events and travelling out of season, you could find that you save a lot of money on a hotel room. When it comes to short trips, you’re also better off planning your stay during the week rather than at the weekend – hotels often charge less during the week than they do at the weekend.

Also, with cheap accommodation you always have an advantage of visiting more cities/countries or likely to stay for longer in the same city and explore more.

The location of your accommodation can also affect the price. Choosing to stay away from the hub can often save you money – if you’re staying in a city, you may want to book a hotel on the outskirts rather than in the centre. Similarly, a hotel that’s a little bit inland could be a lot cheaper than a hotel on the seafront (in fact, a sea view can drastically increase the price of a room).

Airbnb

I feel, doing Airbnb is like a blessing in a disguise when you are running on a tight pocket. You could always choose a far away location right as I mentioned before in this blog as it helps to reduce the taxes and rents of the room.

Go self-catered

You could also try looking into self-catered accommodation. Self-catered holiday rentals as advertised here at Connemara Lettings could be an affordable option when travelling with a big group, allowing you to prepare you own meals rather than relying on food at the hotel. On top of being an affordable option, they also give you your own private space unlike a hotel that you have to share with other guests.

Look into homestay accommodation

Homestay accommodation involves staying with a local family in their home. This can often be much cheaper than a hotel and may even include cooked meals. Homestay accommodation can be a great way to experience the way locals live and is popular amongst travellers wanting to learn a foreign language.

Try a Tent

Camping is always a cheap option. You don’t even have to pay to stay at a campsite – if you’re brave you can go wild camping for free. By taking a tent, you can give yourself this option when travelling abroad. Camping is well suited to travel in rural and undeveloped locations, but may not be suitable if you’re travelling to a city (although it is possible to camp in people’s gardens using sites such as Camp In My Garden).  

Hire a Camper van

If you’re planning a US road trip or a tour of Europe, it could be worth renting out a camper van. This gives you access to a vehicle and accommodation all in one. Occasionally, you may still want to pay for a pitch at a campsite so that you can hook up and use bathroom facilities, but for the most part you can park up where you like. You can hire camper vans from companies such as Kamper Hire.

I hope these tips & tricks will save you some dollars my blog Fam. Let me know in comments, which options would you like to try when travelling next time ?

As the world’s largest island continent, Australia is as diverse as it is vast. You can explore this great country by different modes of transport taking in the scenery. From the lush green beauty of our tropical rainforests, to the desert extremes of the Red Centre and of course, literally thousands of beautiful, white sandy beaches.

There’s winding rivers, magnificent mountain ranges, vivid wildflowers, majestic waterfalls, unique wildlife, red desert vistas, crystal clear waterholes and some of the most liveable cities in the world. 

Here we are going to look at the three main ways of getting around Australia and where they might be useful for you.

Car

One of the most popular forms of transport for most travellers around the world is the car, mostly because it provides you with complete freedom of movement. Australia is no different and seeking out a vehicle from the likes of Bayswater Car Rentals could be the way to go for you when it comes to seeing the land down under.

One thing that is difficult in Australia is to grasp just how vast it is and therefore how impractical it is to drive the entire country. However, that isn’t to say you should avoid a car, quite to the contrary. Driving yourself opens up access to parts of Australia like the Blue Mountains, the Great Ocean Road and getting around Ayers Rock. A car is perfect for these areas and for journeys between major cities like Adelaide and Melbourne where you will get the chance to stop and see parts of the outback that non-drivers would miss.

Plane

It should really go without saying that air travel is the easiest way to maneuver between different states and cities in Australia. As referenced above it is a big country and sometimes it is just easier to board a plane for a few hours rather than attempt a car or train journey that could take several days. Many tourists find getting to and from Perth via plane to be the best option due to how far this city is from other major parts of Australia. Perth is commonly misunderstood to be the most isolated city of more than a million people on the planet, however, it is in the conversation as one of the most isolated, which explains the need for air travel.

If you can afford it, and domestic flights in Australia are not too expensive, then getting around to see a lot of the country in a short space of time via flying is a great option.

Rail

Finally travelling by train, perhaps not the first method that comes to mind when you think of Australia, but like most other major countries it has an intricate train network for you to explore. In terms of practicality there are better options for making your way between cities, but for those of you who are train travel enthusiasts, there are some fantastic journeys to consider. One of those journeys is the Indian Pacific from Sydney to Perth. This trip takes you through the Blue Mountains and into scenic Australia before stopping in Adelaide and some other small towns on its way to Perth. This is one example of how much you can see and do via the train in Australia.

Well, it isn’t a clichè to find your happiness wherever you are!

I love Europe, but this time I decided to go to this underrated and still untouched, absolutely beautiful place called Andaman Islands, India.

Shimmering turquoise waters are surrounded by primeval jungle and mangrove forest, and its sugar-white beaches melt under glorious flame-and-purple sunsets. The population is a friendly mix of South and Southeast Asian settlers, as well as Negrito ethnic groups whose arrival here still has anthropologists somewhat baffled. Adding to the intrigue is its remote location, some 1370km from the Indian mainland, meaning the islands are geographically more Southeast Asia – just 150km from Indonesia and 190km from Myanmar.

Comprising 572 islands, only a dozen or so are open to tourists, Havelock by far being the most popular for its splendid beaches and diving. The Nicobar Islands are strictly off limits to tourists, as are the various patches of tribal areas. Also, most of the islands in Andaman are only day trips visits and no stay land. And my first stop was at Havelock Island. You can check the Havelock photobook here : Havelock Photobook

Jalakara:

I absolutely love boutique hotels and Jalakara didn’t fail me with its rustic jungle small hotel look. You find this in the middle of a rainforest jungle leaving you with its gorgeous sunset views. Jalakara offers the informality, homeliness and bespoke possibilities of a private villa with the private space, service, and staffing of a small hotel.

At Jalakara guests are encouraged to indulge in digital detox and do some soul searching, so they can experience rejuvenation. No wifi or in-room audio-visual flatscreen entertainment is provided instead, log on to the beautiful tropical surroundings and the analogue pleasures of zero pollution, good food, good company, playing games, reading, swimming, massage, hassle-free beaches and the great outdoors. 

Breakfast Tower Room Lounge at the pool Sunset View from Room Biking Around Breakfast Jungle View from the room Large Mirror in Room Outdoor Sitting Bird Watching at Jalakara Peaceful Evenings

Rooms : 

There are 7 signature styled rooms that you can choose when booking at Jalakara.  All of them have great views and comfort styled for your stay. 

Getting There : 

Jalakara is situated in the heart of Havelock Island well away from the hustle and bustle on a lush hillside.  Our Tropical garden property backs on to Virgin Rainforest with stunning views across the island and rainforest.

Havelock island is approximately 90 minutes by ferry from Port Blair. Once you reach the Port Blair airport, you’ll need to come to the jetty to take your ferry boat to Havelock that is currently operated only by the government. 

Outward Bound

Last scheduled boats from Port Blair to Havelock leave at 2 pm – so please make sure you book a flight landing before 12.30pm.

Return

Book afternoon flights leaving after 2 pm from Port Blair to mainland India to avoid an overnight stay in Port Blair. Since not many good hotels are available. 

Pros:
  • Extremely beautiful property 
  • Midst of the Jungle 
  • Rustic Style
  • Very soothing decor 
  • Endless Stargazing at nights
  • Delicious Food 
  • Friendly Staff
Cons: 
  • Beach is far away
  • No intercom in the room 
  • No breakfast in the room 
  • Toads in the pool ( I jumped at the sight) Although they clear them as soon you find one sneaking into the pool. 
  • No luxury amenities in the bathroom

Picture perfect beaches, spectacular mountains, impressive history and charming hill towns, Mallorca is a complete package. It’s kind of like your dream vacation packed in one country with a little bow on top. The islands are voted as one of the best in the world and rightly deserves that title.

Tanzania is a land of nature in its purest form. If you want to unwind in Africa’s untouched masterpiece, Tanzania is your spot. The country is full of splendid wildlife, beautiful white sand beaches, historic ancient towns and UNESCO world heritage sites. You can experience one of a kind Safaris or climb the highest mountain in Africa – Mount Kilimanjaro. And get a breathtaking view of the country from 19341 feet high. Witness the mighty migration of thousands of wildebeest and zebras across the Serengeti National Park or wiggle your toes in the soft sand beaches at Zanzibar. No matter where you choose to go and what you choose to do, your travel experience in Tanzania is bound to be enduring, extraordinary and unforgettable. I have put together an extensive travel guide to Tanzania. You can read it here> Tanzania Travel Guide

Visa Details: All Indians will require a visa to Tanzania. There are two ways to go about this:
1) You can get it before you leave from the Tanzania High Commission in New Delhi
2) Or you can apply for a Visa On Arrival. (All “western” passport holders are eligible for visa on arrival)
Complete details for India Citizens here
Complete details for US Citizens here

And to make this experience in Tanzania even more remarkable, I am going to review the top five luxury hotels that you can book your stay at and enjoy a trip and stay that is just as beautiful and eventful as the country. My hotel experience in a country greatly influences the overall experience of my trip and so I make sure that when I do book a hotel it is the best one that can make everything seamless when I get there. Do you guys agree with me? So here is a list of the best five luxury hotels in Tanzania and a detailed review on what they have to offer.

1)  Singita Serengeti House Image Credits: http://www.zekkeicollection.com/

Where: Private 350,000-acre Singita Grumeti Reserves.
How: Singita has partnered with Grumeti air to offer its customers a hassle-free travel experience from the airport to the hotel. There are daily flights from Arusha to Singita Sasakwa via Kilimanjaro.
Google Maps Link – https://goo.gl/maps/XsTTHq4huxK2

My first and best recommendation will be the Singita range of hotels. They have hotels spread in a couple of countries in Africa and seven different hotels in Tanzania itself each offering a unique experience. My obvious choice of location is Serengeti, this place being the hub of fantastic wildlife and nature. Enjoy uninterrupted views of nature for as far as you can see and a luxury stay from the comfort of your rooms. This place is perfect if you want to just turn off all that city life stress and immerse yourself in an unadulterated environment. Make use of the tennis court or gym for your daily fitness activities or go wildlife spotting in state of the art land rovers with expert game drivers who will be your professional guides.

2)  &Beyond Lake Manyara Tree Lodge Image Credits: https://www.andbeyond.com/

Where: Lake Manyara National Park.
How: There are daily flights to Lake Manyara Airstrip after which you will have to take a 3.5-hour game drive to the hotel.

This absolutely stunning hotel is situated in dense ancient forests far away from cities and human life. The hotel has nine stunning suites with wifi included in each suite so you can be connected to social media and show people your amazing stay at the hotel. Go for guided tour in the forests and see the famous tree-climbing lions. Take a dip in the Mahi Moto hot springs or witness the Soda Lake filled with pink flamingos. Have an outdoor shower and enjoy a spa above the forest floors, every day is filled with adventure.

3)  The Oyster Bay

Where: Dar es Salaam
How: The hotel is 30-90 mins away but if you can take the flights but may get stuck in traffic. So the best option would be the ferry that leaves from Zanzibar.
Google Maps Link: https://goo.gl/maps/xsWdunnPkzE2

The Oyster Bay hotel is known for its view of the Indian Ocean. The hotel’s view is truly beautiful. The hotel’s interiors are very well thought of including tribal artifacts and African carved furniture. The service of the hotel is absolutely amazing. They treat all their clients like kings and queens, they will even wait at the airport with your nameplates. They have eight sea facing suites that are super spacious spread over three floors. All rooms are furnished with plasma TV’s, air conditioners and internet services. The rooms are stylish, sophisticated and dreamy. Your stay here is going to be a very pleasant one with all the royal treatment.

A dip in the infinity pool overlooking the ocean or the in-house spa services are the ultimate stress busters. There are two luxury boutiques within the hotel for anyone who wants to splurge a little which honestly works as good as therapy :p

This beautiful lodge is surrounded by huge open plains. Strong elevated wooden platforms that will take you to the hotel and at an exact safe distance from the wildlife.

Okay, picture this. Lush green forests for as far as you can see, exotic wildlife everywhere, the freshest air you will ever breathe and stunning beaches that soothe the soul. This my friends, is called Tanzania. The country is so beautiful it’s hard to put into words and it’s impossible to leave without wanting to visit again. I know it sounds like I am exaggerating but I’m really really not. You have to experience and live Tanzania at least once in your lifetime.

Best Time To Visit: The best time to visit Tanzania is through June to October. These are the dry months in Tanzania and you can experience the best wildlife the place has to offer. You may even get to see the wildebeest migration if you’re lucky. (The wildebeest is an animal that is seen in Africa. Every year around 5000 of them sprint together across a river to make it from Kenya to Tanzania so that they can protect themselves from the crocodiles that the river is infested with) It’s a spectacular sight and you will marvel at how nature is invented.

Visa: All Indians will require a visa to Tanzania. There are two ways to go about this:
1) You can get it before you leave from the Tanzania High Commission in New Delhi
2) Or you can apply for a Visa On Arrival. (All “western” passport holders are eligible for visa on arrival)
Complete details for India Citizens here
Complete details for US Citizens here

Flights: There are no direct flights from India to Tanzania. Every airline will have a pit stop or two. But you have quite a few airlines to pick from. If you are travelling on a budget you can search for the cheapest options here > Skyscanner. So while planning your travel during the peak months, you can keep a minimum of 35,000 INR for your tickets (including return). Of course, if you book your flights way in advance or if you don’t mind longer travel time, you can get a good deal on the tickets. I prefer this since it saves me a lot of money that I can spend on shopping or probably extend my travel days.
Julius Nyerere International Airport (DAR) is the Tanzania’s main airport but you will have to select one which is closer to where you are planning on travelling. So make sure you do a quick look-up before you book.

What to visit? – Top two destinations in Tanzania
Tanzania has a thousand places that can go on the must visit list but I have two recommendations for you. Mount Kilimanjaro and Serengeti. These make it on the top two of my list and they rightly deserve that spot.

Mount Kilimanjaro National Park

Image Credits: Sergey Pesterev

This grandiose mountain is Africa’s highest mountain and stands 5896m tall in all its snowcapped dazzling glory. It is also one of the highest freestanding mountains in the world. Thousands of adventurers climb the mountain every year and the area is well protected so that there is no mark left behind of trekkers. The mountains have strikingly diverse ecosystems, lowlands being used for farming. As you enter the park, the forest gets thick and dense and as you move higher, the grounds get barren with rocks and the air thinner. One you reach the peak point, the view of the country literally takes your breath away. It looks like a beautiful vast kingdom that is simply perfect – for all wildlife and humans. It’s a country that anyone will be lucky to call home.

Serengeti National Park

The Serengeti National Park is one of the best wildlife sanctuaries in the world. You get to see so many magnificent animals and birds, the little kid in you that watched national geographic channel comes to life. Imagine taking a stroll in a zoo, only the zoo is as big as an entire city and the animals are not caged but free and in their natural habitat. Established in 1952, the park is home to the largest wildlife species on earth – lions, cheetahs, rhinos, elephants, giraffes and so many other animals that you’ve never even heard of. The national park is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and also the place for the wildebeest and zebra migration. As you see, the place is pretty special and there is a huge community of people that work towards protecting it.

How many days: If time and resources permit, I’d advise you to take two whole weeks to explore the country because there is so much to see and a few days won’t suffice. Plan a complete itinerary for your trip in advance, because you are bound to get overwhelmed when you reach there. If you are going to take planned tours or trips, don’t hesitate to take a little detour and visit some place you really want. I think you explore much more on the small detours that may not always be planned.

Recommended Tour: Joica Tours and Safaris is one of my top recommendations if you are planning to book a tour in Tanzania. They are a fantastic company that specializes in organising Tanzania tours and safaris and they have been doing this for a long time. So you can be assured that you are going to experience the best of the country and they make sure you have a smooth and unforgettable travel experience with them. Adding a link to their website so you can check them out and book your trips> Joica Tours and Safaris
Tanzania is for everyone, young and old, for those who seek adventure and those who don’t. Put Tanzania on your bucket list, it’s worth the hype.

I recently did an extensive travel guide on Vietnam too. You can read it here > Vietnam Travel Guide
