I recently had a friend visit from Newcastle and as she had not been to London in a while I decided to plan an exciting day out for us. As a Londoner I am frequently dashing through the city, running for trains and stopping for a hurried minute to grab a coffee and bite to eat. However, on the weekend I usually prefer to relax with friends and family and avoid the crowds.
First, a good indication of a good place is how crowded it evens at off peak hours. People will come at any time if the food is good. Look at the outside of the restaurant and see if there are any reviews or to see if the menu is posted. Don’t feel funny going inside and asking to look at the menu. See if you really are getting quality for money. Also,you’re your waiter about specials, early deals, or happy hour deals or if you can split entrees for a small fee.
Plan ahead and buy your tickets early. While it can be beneficial to wait to buy your tickets, you also risk them selling out. Plan ahead and buy your tickets early. By ‘early’, I mean at least 3 weeks before your travel date. You should also take into consideration the peak season and off season of where ever you’re planning on traveling. The cheapest time to fly is by far the off season, which is when you’ll see the lowest prices on everything from hotels to car rentals at select destinations. Take the Bahamas for example: it’s going to be much cheaper to be there in January as opposed to June when everyone’s on summer vacation.
Get some maps or a what to do siargao book. This is very much recommended for first-timers to the place. Getting lost in a country and having no idea on places to visit is such a waste of time. Enjoy every minute of your vacation by doing this. Apart from that, a travel guide also provides some information regarding the dos and don’ts in a country. Like leaving your footwear outside before entering a house, doing a kowtow as a show of respect and the proper way of drinking your tea.
Plastic is safer than cash. It is best to carry very little cash on your person. Leave the checkbook at home. The age of the checkbook has passed. It is too easy to rob you with a check. They have your account number, your address, phone number…yeah..leave it at home.
4) Beihai Park (bei3 hai3 gong1 yuan2). It is just west of JingShan Park and it is one of the oldest and most authentically preserved imperial gardens in China. It has a history of 1000 years. The ticket price is 20 RMB.
It is possible to find a hotel in Aspen that will make you feel at home and would pamper and cater to all your necessities. There are various hotels that provide comfort without the outrageous cost offered by the first class hotels. Some people spend on more luxurious hotels. Others opt to save the money for other travel expenses. It is your choice in the end.
Most important, there is safety in numbers. If you are traveling along, it would be wise to avoid walking down alley ways that appear empty. If someone gives you a creepy vibe, pay attention and get to a safe area quickly.
