How to Wake up to Elephants in Sri Lanka for Less Than $50 - My Life's A Movie. Waking up to elephants in Sri Lanka that were literally bathing in a river outside of my last-minute-booked hotel room was seriously one of the most exciting travel moments I’ve ever experienced.

How to Wake up to Elephants in Sri Lanka for Less Than $50 - My Life's A Movie

It was like waking up on Christmas morning thinking you’re going to get a pony, except instead of a pony it’s a couple dozen elephants…and they’re actually there. This magical elephant bathing place in Sri Lanka is called Pinnawala, and the elephants come from the Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage. Someone actually sent me a photo of it on Instagram, and after doing my research I decided my best bet for tourist-free photos of ellies would be to go early in the morning, which is where I got the idea to stay at a hotel right next to it.

Well. That was the best idea ever. I planned/discovered this trip all by myself, so if you’re interested this is how I did it! **NOTE** This trip was NOT sponsored!

Si vous recherchez calme, authenticité et à sortir des sentiers battus, la petite Kimolos comblera toutes vos envies. Avec ses 36 km2 et ses 700 habitants (deux fois moins en hiver), Kimolos est aux antipodes de sa voisine Milos, sans parler de Santorin ou Mykonos. Backpacking Jamaica On A Budget. When people think of Jamaica, nine times out of ten, they think of white sand beaches, all-inclusive resorts and the need for a lot of money.

Backpacking Jamaica On A Budget

However, not too many would consider Jamaica to be a backpackers destination like Central America or SE Asia. But what if we told you that it’s more than possible to enjoy this beautiful Caribbean island without taking out a loan? Would you believe us? True, Jamaica does not have much of a backpackers culture as it caters mostly to all-inclusivers, but that doesn’t mean that Jamaica is not backpack-able on a budget. So, in this post we’ll tell you how you can avoid spending your life savings while still experiencing all Jamaica has to offer.

Boracay on a Budget: A World-Class Island in the Philippines on $23 a day

Situated in the heart of the Philippines, Boracay in the Philippines is the Côte d'Azur of Asia. A place where actors and models escape to and lounge in the sun. The island is only 10 km² (4,000 sq mi), and is located 300 km (190 mi) south of Manila, the capital of the Philippines. Boracay is the kind of island you will never want to leave. I've traveled to more than 50 countries and there are not many places where I've returned 5 times. The instant I set foot there back in 2009, I knew was in love. Recently the magazine Leisure and Travel ranked Boracay as #2 on the list of the world's best islands of 2013.

I understand, people probably assume it's pricey to stay in one of the most beautiful places on earth. Beach Lodge Hotel in Jambiani, Zanzibar. Best Cheap Places to Stay in Jamaica.

Perhentian Kecil – Notes from a small island

Who doesn’t? That tropical mix of powder-soft sand, turquoise water and never-ending, glorious sunsets washed down with a cooling beverage is surely guaranteed to sound the alarm on even the most insensitive of bliss-ometers. But traveling around South East Asia can require a little bit of extra thought in order to avoid the monsoons and chase down that perfect slice of tropical island pie. Cue Perhentian Kecil, a little island just off the north-east coast of Malaysia. Lying alongside its bigger cousin, Perhentian Besar, these little gems are a short, motor-boat ride away from the mainland and the perfect stopping off point to play out some of those Girl Friday fantasies. Kecil (literally meaning ‘small’ in Malay) was the island for us due to its reputation as being the more backpacker friendly of the pair with cheaper accommodation and more of a late-night, beach bar scene.

Il est désormais possible de goûter à la réalité de la vie des populations locales, à la variété de la gastronomie et des arts qui font toute la richesse de la destination, grâce à la consommation collaborative et plus particulièrement au tourisme collaboratif. La startup Trampolinn se définit comme une communauté d’échange de nuits entre particulier (concept appelé aussi night swapping). Les membres, à la fois hôtes et invités, mettent à disposition leurs espaces partagés (un logement entier, une chambre et / ou même un canapé) et gagnent des nuits (comparable à une monnaie interne) à dépenser en accueillant à leur tour.

Ils peuvent ensuite utiliser ces crédits pour voyager gratuitement, chez un autre membre de la communauté. 10 Awesome Hotels in Europe under €100. Have you ever stayed in a hotel where the bed was so cozy, the towels so soft and the air so fresh, that you just wished, you never had to leave? As much as I love coming home and sleeping in my own bed – it’s just not the same without the little packages of soap and shampoo waiting to be smelled in the bathroom, without the soft slippers right next to my oversized bed, the substantial breakfast buffet waiting in the downstairs restaurant for me and the DAILY clean bathroom. And while I can take at least the slippers back home – shhh! – and ask the chef about his secret pancake recipe, all I dream about as I scrub the bathtub myself, is the next cool hotel to escape to.

It doesn’t even have to be a luxurious five-star hotel that I shouldn’t be putting on my credit card anyways. There are so many hotels that are awesome and affordable. Mosaic House, Prague.
