In all my personal travels, accommodation selection is a very important part of the planning process. I try not to travel in group packages when exploring Asia, they usually take me to cashew factories, gem traders, and bird's nest restaurants, none of which appeal to me. I am also often accommodated in hotels that are crowded and quite worn by groups of travelers brought in by travel agencies.

The internet is my best source for planning a trip, I get great deals on hotels, transportation and on-site arrangements, and great information, such as comments and recommendations from other travelers.

When I go on a personal trip on a medium budget, it is not as easy as business trips, where I can choose a reliable hotel chain and book a room. I personally choose my accommodation based on the following:

1. Location: Near the following, depending on the purpose of the trip:

to. The air / subway train (for places like Bangkok, Singapore, London, etc.)

second. Shopping centers or points of interest, within 10-15 minutes walk is acceptable

C. Good hangouts, p. Eg restaurants or pubs / bars / clubs

re. The beach or nothing for that matter (for pure relaxation, isolation can be therapeutic. Personally, I like the views of the rice field when I'm in Bali)

Location wise I would try to avoid being located on the main streets, in the entertainment line (playing music at night is not fun or seeing men picking up scantily clad women), well lit neighboring buildings (which is quite common in Hong Kong),

2. Price - a very important factor, several sites offer very good discounts, here are some that I recommend, Asia Travel, Asia Hotels, Asia Best Hotel, PYO Travel. Asia Travel has been more reliable and has had no problems with internet payments so far. For country-specific trips, there are other sites, some local, that offer better discounts. I'll cover this in a related article. It is best to always compare the offers of various sites, sometimes you can save a lot; the extra money can always go towards the purchase budget: p

3. Traveler Reviews: I use the Tripadvisor site religiously, they provide hotel rankings based on traveler ratings based on various criteria. This is important as the images of rooms provided by hotels are often not accurate. I have often mentioned some hotels because travelers mentioned that they were old or dirty - important data that cannot be obtained from hotel brochures or websites.

4. Cleanliness: I am a Virgo and a clean environment is very important to me. Clean carpets, sheets, walls of the room and bathroom are needed. Heaven don't let the room or the sheets smell. I can't sleep any other way. I would sacrifice a small room for cleaning at any time. Try to choose hotels that have been recently opened or recently renovated. For the last thing, make sure they put you in the new wing.

Other than that, get out there, explore, and have fun! Accommodation is important, but don't stay indoors and explore the room's walls when traveling. It should only be a place to rest peacefully in preparation for the exciting journey that lies ahead the next day. https://goodrush.com
