11 Amazing Travel Tips to Enjoy Holidays

To spend holidays with loved ones is always a fun activity. However, you will find many people, who claim that they did not enjoy their holiday trip despite getting best travel deals. Here you need to understand that to spend an enjoyable holiday is not just about getting right travel deals but it is also about appropriate planning, budgeting, and then packing. If you are also planning to go for vacations then apart from getting best travel deals to make your trip economical yet splendid, there are various tips, which you should keep in your mind. These tips are as follows:

1. If you are planning a vacation alone, then select the holiday destination of your choice but if you are planning it with your friends or family members then take their consent too.

2. Budget your holidays and for this, make sure that you know the estimated cost of everything before your budgeting phase. Keep in mind that once you will know that how much best accommodation deals will cost you only then you will be able to buy them for your convenient stay at your dream place.

3. Try to plan your budget in an appropriate manner to enjoy a holiday. However, it depends on your approach. For example, if you want to spend your holidays in a luxury hotel in London then you can save money to make this dream come true. This will be your hard work to make your dream come true. In the case of smart work, you can search for best luxury hotel deals in London to save some pennies.

4. To get luxury hotel deals anywhere, you want is not a problem, these days. However, if you have a strict budget, then always either prefer budget hotels or get discount hotel rooms in luxury hotels to stay within your budget.

5. Always reserve your flight tickets and discount hotel rooms in advance to avoid any hassle later on.

6. Pack your luggage few days before your departure to your dream world. Do not forget to keep the clothes after laundry. Moreover, try to avoid taking clothes, which need ironing.

7. Pack your belongings according to the weather conditions of your holiday destination. Do not forget to keep a hat with you, as it will keep you safe in every kind of weather condition. However, the type of hat to be carried along may vary. For example, if you are about to visit any place in winter then a woollen knitted hat will be proved handy, as it will keep your warm.

8. Avoid taking new shoes. Just think what you will do if you will find your new shoes uncomfortable. However, in case, you are packing new clothes of yours for holidays then always give them a trial first before packing them.

9. To pack all your belongings in a travel bag with wheels will prove handy, as it will be easy for you to drag it anywhere you want without applying much force.

10. Do not forget to keep all your documents. It is highly recommended to also keep one set of the photocopy with you especially while travelling to another country or continent. Moreover, email their scanned copy to your email address as well.

11. Always keep a first aid travel kit with you to deal with emergencies during your trip.

Hence, keep all these above-mentioned handy tips in mind to enjoy your holiday travel at best.

Travel To Singapore – Best Food Centres To Eat At In Singapore’s Chinatown

Besides the Chinatown Food Street, there are an abundance of other good hawker centres (or food centres) around Singapore’s Chinatown. The main difference between these “other” hawker centres and the Chinatown Food Street, is that these hawker centres provide a way more authentic local experience, way more variety, and way cheaper price to eat and drink. Here is a quick overview of the three hawker centres around Chinatown that I recommend to check out.

1. Maxwell Food Centre

Just across the street from the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple is the historic Maxwell Food Centre. It is most definitely one of the most famous food centres in Singapore. Even celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain did a segment of his television travel show, No Reservations, here at Maxwell Centre in which he sampled chicken rice at the Tian Tian Chicken Rice Stall.

2. People’s Park Food Centre

Just beside the People’s Park Complex shopping centre, is the People’s Park Food Centre. It is a sprawling food centre on the first floor serving a wide variety of Chinese food. Because of the influx of mainland Chinese people there, you will also find some nice food stalls selling handmade pork dumplings (just like how its made in Northern China). It’s usually packed during lunch and dinner hours, so make sure you arrive a little bit earlier to grab a seat.

3. Chinatown Complex

Just behind the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple on the same side as the Chinatown Food Street is the Chinatown Complex. The Chinatown Complex is a local market that sell produce and meats on the basement floor, clothes and accessories on the main floor, and lastly but not least, food on the second floor. It used to be a very grungy place with moldy tiles and rusting seats, but about 4 to 5 years ago a major renovation and revamp to the entire Chinatown Complex was done, which breathed new life into this market.

The food area on the second floor is huge. I estimate that it probably has the most stalls out of all the other hawker centres in the Chinatown area. It is so big that they split the food centre into 4 sections, easily visible by the different colour code of each section: Yellow, Blue, Red, and Green.

You can never go hungry at Singapore’s Chinatown. The above 3 places are probably the best hawker centres to eat at in Singapore’s Chinatown. They all have plenty of variety, and the prices for the meals there are quite cheap!

How to Have 25+ Romantic Honeymoon Trips a Year, for a Lower Cost Than the Price of One

As our wedding anniversary looms near… and this one will be our twelfth! It occurs to me that up until now, we have not taken a romantic vacation since our honeymoon. Shame on us!

With work commitments and growing kids. Extra bills that pop up and rob the cookie jar, time has just flown by without putting exotic vacation dreams into action.

I wonder if other married couples have traded in their fun times for a life of bills, mortgages and filling holiday days with chores around the house?

I am so excited today because we are about to change our stagnant situation and get back on the ‘honeymoon’ bandwagon. This will be our 2nd honeymoon and looking at the stats, we will not be spending anywhere near what they say honeymooners are spending these days!

Honeymooners are spending on average around $4,000 on that one trip. That is more than the average U.S. adult spends on a family or leisure vacation.

There are many options available that will provide, perhaps a cheaper way to achieve a dream-come-true trip. But, why would someone settle for just one trip, when they can have over 25+ per year for life, for the same amount of money?

There is a way for newlyweds, or anyone looking to travel for that matter, to have the trip of a lifetime, every year, over a lifetime!

Coastal Vacations Travel Club; a club with a 10 year track record, offers its members the opportunity to take 25+ free to almost free vacations per year, for life.

In fact, Coastal Vacations partners with over 30 different licensed and bonded travel providers, and in doing so, offers the lowest priced vacations anywhere.

These are full vacations. Unlimited week long condo stays in over 200 international locations, at 5 star hotels, resort and condos for less than $400 a week, with no time-share presentations, or ownership obligations.

There are hundreds of bonus vacations of 2 night-3 day stays at popular travel destinations around the world. And, they are offered at wholesale rates of up to 85% off retail prices.

Hotel, condo and resort rooms that usually rent for $300 per night can cost as low at $300 for a week’s stay. And in most cases, members are just required to pay the daily room taxes of around $8 per night.

These vacations in the Coastal Travel package are to the top destinations the stats say that newlyweds are traveling to.

10 percent of newlyweds take cruises for their honeymoon.

37 percent of honeymoon trips are to domestic locations; 63 percent are foreign. With the leading destinations being Las Vegas, Hawaii, Jamaica, and the Bahamas.

40 percent of honeymooners will stay at a resort vs. 27 percent at a large hotel vs.10 percent at a small hotel.

Coastal Vacations Travel Club membership also provides unlimited cruises on Carnival and Royal Caribbean Cruise lines. And, recently they have added some all-inclusive vacations that include alcoholic drinks as part of the package!

The Coastal Vacation Travel Package also includes 20 membership cards that entitle members to discounts on hotels, dining, car rentals, roadside assistance service, ski lift tickets, golf cart access, water park access, plus a whole lot more.

Coastal Vacations travel package is worth well over $15,000 travel industry cost, however, the package can be purchased for a one-time cost of $1,295, which is much less than one would pay for just one of the cruises offered in the package.

Coastal Vacations has allowed our family to change the way we spend our vacation time. These vacations are ours to go on, or to give as gifts. And we take pride in being able to give some of them aways to friends who are getting married! And, we can go on any one of them through the year, and for our lifetime!

There is a big smile on my face as I see 2nd, 3rd, 4th…. honeymoons at a savings of 85% on the horizon and in the very near future!

You know what else puts a huge smile on my face? The fact that the Coastal Vacation Travel Club also offers us a way to generate money to spend on our trips without taking away from our family time.

Now when we come home our vacations, our Coastal Vacation Travel Club membership business will have generated extra cash, and it will be waiting for us in our mailbox!

All I can think of is… what an awesome way for newlyweds to begin their life and future together!

A honeymoon investment that continues to give and give at savings of up to 85% off; for a lifetime. Plus an avenue for bringing in extra cash that can go towards the other nuptial bills you’ve incurred while creating the wedding of your dreams. Extra cash towards the downpayment on that new home you want to buy. For your kids clothes and education. Your future. Possibly early retirement! And, towards more and more honeymoon vacations! Now that’s a headstart I wish I would have had, when I first got married!

Congratulations on your new lives together!
