This page is about how I run this travel and lifestyle website. I have listed the techs I have used and the travel resources where you will find the cheapest airfares and discounted hotels.
Running A Blog
Why do I use WordPress? It is easy, simple, and mostly free.
I bought my domain and hosting from iPage. They have 24/7 live chat which is very good in assisting me building this website.
World Nomads is a reliable travel insurance, recommended by Travelfish and Lonely Planet. So go and get them and you will be safe even with all your adventure activities like bungee jumping or white-water rafting (or driving barefoot on a motorbike in India…)! A great advantage is, that you can buy even if you’ve already left home. You can claim and extend your insurance online while traveling. There is a 24/7 phone assistance. World Nomads Travel Insurance is designed for adventurous and independent travelers, with coverage for overseas medical expenses, cancellation, baggage and other expenses.
TripAdvisor is the world’s largest travel site with millions of users every month. It is a great source to get travel information, reviews, opinions and photos about hotels, restaurants, attractions and things to do, all written by other travelers. Before I travel, I always check TripAdvisor for accommodation and sightseeing tips. By doing so, I will get insightful and detailed information about the places I am going to.
Skyscanner is an excellent flight search engine. One of the best features is the option to search any destination. For example, if you are not sure where to go, you just need to look for the cheapest fares. Then, Skyscanner is your tool! You just need to type your chosen departure, i.e. BKK (for Bangkok) to any destination, and then you will get the best deals from your nearest airport.
Forget expensive hotels! Check out Airbnb, a great booking site to find comfortably furnished rooms, cool city flats, romantic country houses, extra-ordinary penthouses – Anything you’re dreaming of!! It’s often cheaper than hotels and definitely a unique experience. Feel like a local while traveling!
Agoda, the award-winning booking platform is – hands down – the best site to book hotels all around the globe. Their prices are unbeatable. Agoda has often huge discounts compared to other booking sites. Try them, you’ll be surprised! You will find any kind of hotels, from super low budget huts to extraordinary deluxe hotels. I use Agoda all the time and highly recommend them!
