Where To Stay In... Guides

Finding The Best Accommodation

So tickets in hand and suitcase packed, one of the next questions that present itself is, where should I stay? Finding the perfect place to stay for your destination, your budget, and your preferences can be challenging.

What are the most popular areas, where are the top attractions, and how will I get around the city? Do you prefer a quiet neighborhood or do you want to stay in the middle of the action? Can you perhaps save money by staying a little less central? Is the neighborhood safe? Do you prefer a quiet guesthouse or a large international brand hotel? Perhaps a pool is a must for you, or a kid’s club or a spa?

The choice of hotel and neighborhood can sometimes make or break a trip.

We have created in-depth accommodation guides for some of the most popular destinations in South East Asia. Our guides are meticulously researched and based on years spent traveling in this region, staying in thousands of hotels and hostels.

We’ve spent weeks, and in some cases months, in every one of these destinations, and we know these places very well. For each destination, we describe the most popular areas to stay in, what’s great about the area and what’s not so great, nearby sights and attractions, and how to easiest get around.

We also give you our handpicked hotel recommendations for any budget, whether you’re looking for that once-in-a-lifetime luxury hotel, a cozy boutique hotel, or simply a clean budget accommodation.
