Useful apps

Today I plan to write many things but I was too busy with work that it slipped ny mind. So instead, I'll write about the apps i use and find very useful when checking and booking airplane tickets and checking for hotels.

The app I use most frequent is Flights (google flights). It works the same as Kayak and other 3rd party agent. However I like how simple it is compare to other apps. You can also favorite your search so you can come back to it next time you open the app for price check. The app also allows you to change the currency to your home currency, and of course they have the filter and sort options as well.

 The next app I want to write about is the airbnb. I have used AirBnb to book a place to stay for my friends and myself when I travel to a place where I stay longer than couple days. Airbnb is basically a community marketplace where guests can book spaces from hosts, connecting people who have space to spare with those who are looking for a place to stay. Through their experiences on Airbnb, guests and hosts build real connections with real people from all over the globe. I find Air Bnb is very useful when I travel to Hong Kong because the hotels there is ridiculously pricey. This time I'll be going to Hong Kong for 2 weeks with my friend and we are so not going to pay 200 to 300 a night. Hostel would be a good way as well, however the rooms in Hong Kong is very small. I did not have a good experience with Hostels in Hong Kong. I'm going to give Airbnb a chance. I've seen prices range from $60 USD to $120 USD, depends on which location you are interested staying and how big the house/room you're looking for.

 Other apps are excellent as well. Take your time to explore the variety of free apps out there. Remember to prepare before you travel!

 Next segment of this blog I will write about packing. I love packing but I hate unpacking. grrr

Well, until then.
