Travel deals in Asia

We are going to Singapore this August for 6 days. It is one of the most expensive cities to visit in Asia. Last time, I exceeded my budget (shopping!). You have to be prepared for the cost and get the most value out of it. To save on costs of hotel bookings, sightseeing fees and air tickets, I check on every discount site or travel deals that I can avail of.

Here are some of the sites with great offers and promotions when planning a trip in Asia.

1. Cheaptickets.com

Friends are also good sources of discount passes. I know people in my network working in the hotel industry. I also have a good friend who set up her own travel agency in Asia who can give me big discounts!

Be wise when traveling. Avail of cheaper prices with same value and services. Save when you can to re-allocate your expenses to maybe shopping.  Singapore offers great deals for authentic goods.

Don’t forget to check the websites first before booking and finalizing your itinerary. Traveling can be both fun and affordable.
