Instead of booking expensive hotels that you’re going to spend only for showering and sleeping, why not find cheaper accommodation alternatives? If you’re going to Japan, capsule hotels are cheap, and you’re guaranteed to sleep in complete silence, so you don’t have to worry about noisy neighbors. If you’re not going to Japan, then it’s okay because there are alternatives such as Airbnb where you can rent an apartment for an affordable price, this way you can cook your food if you want to save up more money for other things.
The first obvious tip is to book when it’s low season, not on high season. On high seasons such as vacations and school breaks, you’re going to cry when you see the price of your flight because it might double or even triple from what you’re used to seeing. If you want to save money on the airplane ticket, book when it’s low seasons or look out for promos as airline companies often sell out promos for cheap tickets. Lastly, settle down with an economy class instead of forcing yourself to sit down on the business class.
Eat Like a Local
The last tip that we’re going to give for you is to eat like a local; this means that you’re going to have to find out where the local eats. For example, if you want to eat cheaply in Singapore, you can eat at the hawker’s food center. If you have no clue on where the locals eat, you can always browse on the internet for more information or ask the locals themselves. Ask nicely, and they’ll surely tell you about where to eat cheap and tasty. Avoid eating at malls as it is a great place to suck your money.
