So this is the first time we’re addressing our followers directly but we wanted a little bit of advice from any travellers out there. First off though, while we’ve got you, we’d just like to say thank you so much for following us! We’ve been really pleasantly surprised since starting this blog at how friendly and helpful and engaging everyone has been and how much fun we’ve had doing what we’re doing and sharing it with others. We very much mean to carry on as we’ve started and really hope that we’ll have the opportunity to interact with more and more people. So thanks very much again, it means a lot to us!
Anyway, enough of us being sentimental and onto our question, which is about the pros and cons of booking travel accommodation/transport/activities in advance and booking in a more ‘on the go’ style when you get to your destination. Obviously some things will need booking in advance and it does depend on what it is you’re wanting to do and where. For context’s sake, we are planning a trip to Asia and broadly thinking that we’ll start off in Thailand and from there explore the surrounding countries (all, or some combination, of Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, China and India). So really what we’d like to ask is, to anyone who has any experience of travelling this area of the world, did you personally book things like flights, trains and hostels in advance or not and how did it work out?
Any advice would be really appreciated as we’re struggling to decide how to tackle our planning!
Ben and Jess 🙂
