Hello 2019! Happy New Year!
“Another year over, a new one just begun…”
What are you looking forward to this year?
Many of us include travel plans among our new year’s resolutions. So, where do you plan to go this year?
Last year, I was part of a group of 7 relatives and friends who travelled to Hong Kong for a 4D3N trip. It was a DIY trip, where we booked our round trip flight, accommodation, transfers and day tours all online. It took a few days searching online, but I think we got the best deals we could find at that time.

Since it was a DIY trip, there’s no unwanted stop to a jewelry store or souvenir shop. Having experienced taking a package tour eons ago with the family, you kind of miss the convenience of being ferried from your hotel to different places of interest without having to figure out what type of transportation to take, what bus stop or subway stop to get off, and how much is the fare. But the great thing with a DIY trip is having the luxury of being flexible with your time, and going to places you really want to visit.
This year, I’d like to go to Bangkok in the summer because I’ve never been there, and maybe New Year City towards the end of the year, for another taste of Christmas in winter wonderland. 🙂
Gone are the days when you would simply go to a travel agency and, for convenience, choose an all-in travel package that may or may not include places you want to visit (ehem, duty free shop, jewelry store).
Nowadays, the fun starts with planning your trip especially when you do it all online.
And if you’re a budget traveller, you definitely want to get the most out of your hard-earned money.
So where do you look for the best travel deals online?
SkyScanner is the answer. SkyScanner is an easy to use, free travel app that uses a unique proprietary technology that connects people directly to an extensive range of flight, hotel and car rental options.
What I like about Skyscanner is the Price Alert option. You’ll be sent an email when price changes for a particular search that you made.
You don’t need to go through several websites and register on each site to compare prices. For your next trip, you can search, compare and book cheap flights, hotels and car rentals anytime, anywhere with just one website or app – SkyScanner.
Download Skyscanner on the Apple App Store or on Google Play for travel search made easy.
