Travel Help

as you are aware, we do travel often...... and it is not always easy to find the right hotel or where to go at a particular time of the year etc.

Here are a few websites that will certainly help you plan a trip that you will remember for a long time:

When comparing hotels and prices or where to stay, certainly go to HOTELS COMBINED, where you can find a hotel or resort to suit your pocket and your needs. The following was 'lifted' from their website: allows users to:
  • Conveniently search multiple hotel reservation websites simultaneously to find the lowest prices - in one search and on the one website. searches the hotel websites directly and in real-time ensuring you receive the latest prices and availability.
  • Compare prices and availability from all major accommodation providers on the same screen. We search the world’s most popular hotel reservation websites allowing instant comparison of hotel details, rates, taxes and availability information on one simple web page. Compare online travel agents such as Expedia, Travelocity,,, Priceline and the websites of popular hotel chains including the Intercontinental Hotel Group and many others.
  • Search over 900,000 global hotel deals from over 30 merchants, and access over 1.5m consumer reviews, 3m hotel images, 2m hotel descriptions and maps is free to use. We do not alter the rates in anyway: we are not involved in the pricing process and we do not change the prices displayed by the reservation websites. We are all about finding the best deal for your preferred hotel!

Trying to decide what time of year to visit your preferred destination then log on to a site called BEST TIME TO GO.

....... and what they say on their site is: We provide travelers the answers to the primary question of Where and When to go on a vacation. There are very few websites in cyberspace that are really designed to do that. (Actually, we couldn’t find anyone other than ours that went right to the core of that question.) After all, those two questions should be the very first that vacationers ask themselves.

Down to the serious business of money ...... if you are looking for a good website for currency exchange you cannot beat XE Universal Currency Exchange!

The above should at least get you started. Over the next few months I will be adding hotels and places to THE BLOG where we have stayed since living here in Singapore.

Hope it will be of help to you!
