So, you’ve decided to travel and see the world and now researching about places, routes and everything about backpacking. Where do you go first? There are countless of blogs and websites that will help you find your way and it gets too confusing sometimes.
Here are the Top Four websites that I recommend you should start with:
Couchsurfing website is more than having a free place to stay. Apart from the opportunity to meet local people, the website is also FULL of useful information for travellers. You can get information about possible travel buddies, information about places straight from a local’s perspective and even temporary jobs on the road. You can even post a question about a specific travel related stuff and most of the time, you’ll get a response from a lot of helpful people.
I’ve used this website primarily on overland travelling. It’s packed with information on how to train-travel to almost anywhere in the world, from possible routes to prices and sometimes the schedule and frequency of train rides. This website needs to be bookmarked by every traveller.
Are you looking for a budget airline that serves Philippines? How about cheap airlines serving India? This website is all about the low cost carriers in the world. It’s so easy to navigate and you’ll surely find the cheapest airline to fly with.
Hostel Search Sites
I always book my first night on the destination that I go to. And after that, I scourge the place for a cheaper option. And to find those hostels, I always check HostelBookers, HostelWorld or Agoda . I check the address, the location and the price. This is a must for those cheapskates like me who sometimes prefer to stay in hostels than with people I don’t know.
