Tips On How To Make The Most Out Of Your Long Weekend Getaway

Long weekend

Holidays give us a great opportunity to relax, unwind, and give ourselves a break from our busy days. Thus, we have been eyeing on the list of long weekends every year to plan how we will spend them. So, how can you make the most out of your vacation? Continue reading below to know how!

TALK TO LOCALS

long weekend

No matter where you go – within your own country or overseas, always try to speak to locals. It is not only when asking for directions they will be helpful but also in learning more about the place, even the culture. As locals, they can tell you more about their home and it would definitely be a unique experience. Besides, it would be great to make new friends too!

PACK SMART

long weekend

We won’t tell you to pack light or even pack heavy as you know yourself. Rather, we tell you to pack smart. How would this be? Just pack what you really need and what you think you will need. If it would turn out to be either only a backpack or tons of bags, what’s important is that you are complacent that you got everything you need. Also, come prepared because we’ll never know when emergencies will occur!

PLAN AHEAD

long weekend

From itineraries to hotel or car rental bookings, one of the most important things to do before your long weekend travel is planning. Of course, you wouldn’t want to waste any minute during your travel, right? However, spontaneity isn’t being disregarded. In fact, it could make any getaway a more memorable one.

Plan everything beforehand but don’t expect everything to turn how you exactly planned it. There may be some problems because they can’t be avoided. Just go with the flow! Aside from that, scout for the best travel deals online. Perhaps joining a travel club like Asia Travel Club (ATC) that can give you a free stay from one of their partner hotels in Asia could help. Yes, you read that right! Want to know more about it? Send them a message at m.me/asiatravelclub

DON’T WAIT FOR ANYONE

long weekend

Are you worried that no one will accompany you in your long weekend getaway? Don’t worry about it and do it! Don’t wait for anyone to be with you. Travelling alone doesn’t mean you are lonely. In fact, it would be a refreshing feeling to be able to explore a place all by yourself.

long weekend

“Don’t be. I assure you that once you go travelling, you are never really alone. You’re always bound to meet people along the way and they could eventually become your best friends for life. They may be locals or they may be travellers like you, and this whole process is one of the best gifts of travel that you should not miss out on.” – by Aileen Adalid, a Filipina digital nomad from her blog entitled: Top 15 Common Travel Excuses That Should Not Hold You Back!

So, whatever reasons you have that make you want to travel, those are enough for you to do it. There are so much more things, places, and people in the world that are yet to be discovered. As a matter of fact, those things are best to see with our very own eyes.

The Best Influencer Marketing Program For Travel And Hospitality Brands

Influencer marketing

People get so overwhelmed at work every week that they opt now for a staycation on a weekend to give themselves time to unwind and relax. With the booming hotelier industry across Asia, how would you make sure that customers would choose you and even go back to you? That being said, tapping into the power of social media through influencer marketing is an opportunity for hotels like yourself should consider.

ENSURING BRAND RELEVANCY

Influencer marketing

There are countless ways on how you can make yourself relevant and stand out in the market. Moreover, you can advertise yourself through print media such as magazines and alike. On the other hand, there lies the digital marketing side where you can strengthen your influence on social networks. Wherein the latter helps a brand to have a strong online presence to cut through the clutter.

SOCIAL MEDIA AS THE PRIMARY MEDIUM OF COMMUNICATION

Influencer marketing

Today, social media is the primary medium being used for communication by almost all over the world. Be it for business or personal use, we can’t hide the fact that we use social media every day. In fact, according to a survey, internet users spend an average of 2 hours and 22 minutes a day on social media sites (source: digital information world). Thus, different brands have been tapping the digital media side for their marketing strategy especially influencer marketing.

HOW INFLUENCER MARKETING WORKS

Influencer marketing

So how does this work? Is this giving freebies to an influencer so they can say good things about you? No and no. Influencer marketing is when you work directly with an influencer or a group of them to create an effective campaign for your brand to be shared with a larger market. Aside from celebrities, the voices of influencers are one of the most powerful things in building the credibility of a brand.

SIGN UP NOW TO ELEVATE YOUR BRAND

3 Reasons Why Travelling Should Be Part Of Your Lifestyle

Travelling

Travelling seems to be the trend nowadays, especially for millennials where it is not uncommon for them to be living out of a suitcase. There are certain reasons why people travel – be it for leisure to chase their wanderlust dream or business. For some, it becomes their way of life not just something they do. That being said, why do you think there are more and more people who become globetrotters? Continue reading below to find out!

YOU GET TO LEARN

Travelling

Learning doesn’t stop when you graduate from school but it continues as you live your life. This is perhaps one of the reasons why people love to travel because each destination will give you unique learning and experience about them. As you immerse yourself, you become more educated and aware of the different cultures, people, and places. Also, travelling makes you actually see with your own eyes and experience the history, geography, and sociology of a certain place – the things we just see on books or the internet.

YOU GET TO WIDEN YOUR PERSPECTIVE

Travelling

Another reason is that travelling helps you widen your perspective. It opens your mind and makes you realize that there is no one way to live your life. Getting in touch with different people will show you that how you view the world isn’t the same with others. In fact, making you exposed to new things will help you understand how certain things in life work differently in each of us.

YOU GET TO APPRECIATE LIFE

Travelling

Rather being stuck with your mundane routine, you have to go out and try out extraordinary things. Exploring a whole new different place will make you understand how lucky you are to be given the chance to witness its own beauty with your own eyes. Thus, making you appreciate more about your life and realise how wonderful it is.

IT IS NOT AS EXPENSIVE AS IT SOUNDS

Some people would have a second thought about travelling because of how much it will cost them. In fact, you can cut down expenses and in line everything according to your budget. Good thing Asia Travel Club (ATC) could help a globetrotter like you to get a free stay at one of their partner hotels in Asia through its #StaysForStories program. This is a great opportunity for a social media influencer to strengthen their personal branding! So, what are you waiting for? Sign up now and pack your bags!

Things To Consider When Booking Hotel Rooms

booking hotel rooms

The hotel you will be staying at is one of the most important factors to think about when planning a trip. Nowadays, we have plenty of ways to book hotel rooms but you have to make sure that it will provide you with the utmost comfort. Whether you are travelling for business or leisure, make sure to consider these simple factors to check if the hotel you are eyeing for is the one. Continue reading more below to find out!

LOCATION

Hotel Rooms

The first thing to consider when booking hotel rooms is the location. Some may claim that they have an excellent location only for you to find out that they don’t while some exaggerate their closeness to attractions in your travel itinerary. Moreover, choose one that allows you to move around with no hassle and makes you avoid unnecessary waste of time and money. Try checking the hotel on Google Maps to see where it is exactly located.

FREE BREAKFAST

Hotel Rooms

This is not a requirement when booking hotel rooms but it is ideal to have this included. However, not all hotels include free breakfast in its booking. Aside from that, not having to pay for breakfast is a big save on your budget. Not having to worry about what to eat and going out for your first meal in the morning is a plus!

AMENITIES

Hotel Rooms

Aside from the comfortability and cleanliness of the room, you should also consider the hotel amenities. What do they have to offer? Do these cater to your needs? Hotels that make an effort to provide amenities for you to have a memorable experience during your stay are worth spending for. If you also find hotels that offer extra amenities for free, lucky you!

PRICE

Hotel Rooms

Hotel rates vary depending on the website or agency you will use to book and the season. Make sure to compare different hotel deals first to know which surely fits your budget. As a matter of fact, you can directly contact the hotel to check. Who knows they have a promotion or a discount?

REVIEWS

Hotel Rooms

In booking hotel rooms, it is also good to know how the experiences of their past guests were. Some hotels provide attractive pictures and may make you want to book it without further ado. However, have you heard of expectation vs. reality? Considering online reviews might save you from regrets. Make sure that it has positive and realistic reviews so it will be worth every penny you will spend.

But, did you know that staying at an excellent hotel for free is now possible? Asia Travel Club (ATC), the newest social commerce platform connects influencers and hotels in Asia through its #StaysForStories program.

Tips On How You Can Be Living The High Life

Living The High Life

If you think living the high life is only measured by how much money you have, it isn’t! Wealth doesn’t only come in the form of money but also in other aspects such as relationships and self-fulfilment. At the end of the day, you will look back to yourself and wonder if you have lived the life you dreamt of. Want to know how you can pull it off? Continue reading below!

LIVE FOR THE MOMENT

Living The High Life

Yes, you can’t seem to avoid constantly worrying about tomorrow but the most important thing is what is happening right now. As much as possible, make the most of what is happening at the moment because you can’t take it back. However, you shouldn’t lose a vision of how you see yourself in the future. After all, coming prepared for it is as important.

QUALITY OVER QUANTITY

Living The High Life

Keep in mind that the number of things or people you have doesn’t equate to self-fulfillment or happiness. Choose quality over quantity – be it for material things or your relationships with people. People who help you grow as a person is one of the keys to live the high life.

DON’T RUSH YOURSELF

Living The High Life

Always remember to not compare yourself to others. If your friend has his/her own Lambo by the age of 23, don’t feel sorry if you can’t even buy any car for yourself. Don’t rush yourself in achieving things because life isn’t a race. As a matter of fact, you have your own timeline and path to take. If you focus on other people’s lives, you will just pressure yourself. Instead, focus on working towards your own achievements and goals in life.

WORK, SAVE, TRAVEL, REPEAT.

Living The High Life

Learning doesn’t end within the four corners of a classroom because it is a lifelong process. There are more things about life that we need to learn. All you need is to explore and see the world for yourself. Moreover, knowledge isn’t the only thing that we acquire when we travel but also priceless experiences. Lastly, never ever be afraid to try something new!

THE BEST THINGS IN LIFE ARE FREE

Living The High Life

Who wouldn’t want something for free? It may be hard to believe but there are really certain things we can get for free such as a free stay at one of the best hotels in Asia. Yes, you certainly read it right! It’s now possible with Asia Travel Club, the newest social commerce platform that connects influencers and hotels across Asia. ATC aims to empower your social media influence through its #StaysForStories program.

So, what are you waiting for? Living the high life has never been this possible with Asia Travel Club! To sign up, visit their website www.asiatravelclub.com or Facebook page @asiatravelclub.
