Cost of budget accommodation in Asian countries

Sun, 15 Jan 2017 19:31:38 GMT

Those who have spent time in Asia, please share how much a person needs to pay for budget accommodation in various places in Asia. I like my own room with a bathroom. You may also share prices on dorm accommodation, as others may be interested. I mean budget accommodation. Some people go somewhere for one week, and don't mind spending $200 a night or more. I like to travel for several months at a time, which is unaffordable if you pay that ... [Posted by aus89 - Jan 15, 11:31]

What do people think about it with a 4 and 6 year old? Beaches are good for them, but wondering if you can sea kayak with ... [Posted by Kingwindle - Jan 09, 23:15]

Need advices for guesthouse in Japan

Hello everyone, Happy new year! I and my family are going to Kyoto next month. We are planning to book a place to stay for 4 days 3 nights.

Hello all, Myself and my partner will soon be travelling to Bali as part of our around the world trip. We hope to use our time there as down time and to spend a lot of time relaxing on the beaches.

Hello, We are planning to go to the Philippines next week. As we are on a longer trip in Asia, normally, we don't plan ahead and just work things out on the way. However, as we read, it may not be easy to be spontaneous in the Philippines due to expensive last-minute ferry and flight tickets among different islands. Could you please share the tips on island hopping, other than plan everything carefully in advance? How to find cheaper transportation options? ... [Posted by baldinakta - Jan 04, 06:55]
