The Picture-Perfect Beaches of Bahamas

The Picture-Perfect Beaches of Bahamas

Sep 21, 2014

Every year, millions of tourists head to the picture-perfect beaches of Bahamas for a holiday retreat. Bahamas welcomes cruise ship visitors, Americans and all vacationers of different nationalities. What actually made Bahamas a hotspot among travelers are the natural attractions and a huge range of cultural and historical sites. Bahamas is not a cheap destination, just like any other islands in the Caribbean. I went to Bahamas without expecting anything cheap, but still, I tried to keep to my own maximum budget. Truth is, no matter how expensive a place is, if you do it right, you can still enjoy the trip as cheap as you do it. Cost of Accommodation and Food To find a cheap accommodation in Bahamas is pretty hard because lodging is expensive there. Hostels are hard to find but there are a number of guest houses with reasonable prices around Bahamas. Budget hotels can be found for USD75 per night with ensuite rooms. As for the food, I paid a meal of fish, dessert and side dish for USD8. However, most of the restaurants around Bahamas specialized in British and American meals which usually cost between USD17 to USD25 per plate of serving. And don’t ever be surprised if you need to pay 15% of the compulsory service charge on your bill. (image by : candia_maris) Cost of Transportation in Bahamas The cheapest travel option for those staying in Nassau or Freeport is by a minibus for about USD1.25 per ticket. However, this service usually stop at 6pm. Apart from that, the most popular way to get around is via the water-taxis, operating every hour, which cost USD6 for a return ticket to Paradise Island from Nassau. If you’re planning to travel between islands, the mail boats frequently run from Nassau to the other Islands with cost of each way about USD45. However, bear in mind, mail boats operate long-hour sometimes from 12 to 48 hours. They offer the least of modern conveniences needed. That is why I suggest for you take the inter-island flights especially the Bahamas Air. I didn’t break my bank even when I took these flights.   Activities and Tips On Money Saving Activities such...

The Funkiest City in America : San Francisco

The Funkiest City in America : San Francisco

Sep 18, 2014

Let me sum it up for San Francisco. The city is vibrant with diversity of cultures, music and picturesque views of the surrounding. Almost everyone I had met said that they love San Francisco because it’s an eclectic place. I love the alternative lifestyles in the city where tons of college students and hippies are seen around a lot. This has to be one of the funkiest cities in America. Cost of Accommodation I didn’t stay in a hostel while I was traveling to San Francisco. I had a friend who is willing to let me stay at his house and I considered this as a way of couchsurfing. Althought it was not. Back to the story, I figured out that for most of hostel dorm rooms, the cost start at USD20 and go up to USD27. A private double room will cost USD80 per night though. Budget hotels in San Francisco have rates starting at USD60 and up to USD90 per night in a double room. However, if you really search around, you will be able to find cheap hotels in San Francisco. If you find it hard to do so, you can always try couchsurfing, house-sitting or even renting a cheaper accommodation like an apartment. (image by : University of Nottingham )   Cost of Food and Public Transportation What I loved the most about the city was the Chinese food. It tends to be a lot more inexpensive when compared to the other selections of food. San Francisco’s Chinese food is very good. Other than that, the city also offer a wide range of budget menus for its visitors. I didn’t spend a lot of money on food because most of the places I went to have moderate prices of meals. As for the public transportation in San Francisco, the SFMTA applies to historic streetcars, metros and buses. The cost of an adult pass is USD2. There are also other options of a one-day pass for USD14, three-day pass for USD22 and seven-day pass for USD28. I would really recommend for you to get any of these if you’re planning to do a lot of walking around and sightseeing since these...
