Top 5 places to explore with Booking.com

Booking.com is a site offering accommodation throughout the world, from London all the way to Australia – and everywhere else in between. With the huge range of different places to visit though, the hardest part of planning a holiday is working out which place to visit. So, this guide should give you the inspiration you need to find a city that suits your needs and desires. What’s more, all of the places mentioned below can be booked via Booking.com, and have a variety of different accommodation styles found in them.

Once you’ve finished reading, you will probably have the travel bug, and won’t be able to wait to book a fantastic place to stay. If you are going to book via Booking.com, it is a good idea to skip their online booking platform though, and ring them directly. By doing so, you might find that there are better deals available, or perhaps a new hotel that hasn’t been added to the site yet. You will, of course, find the Booking.com contact number here at Contact Number UK, so there’s no need to search around online looking for it when you want to call them. For now though, sit back and find out about five great places you could visit on your next holiday.

1 | Bali, Indonesia

Bali is a living postcard, an Indonesian paradise that feels like a fantasy. Soak up the sun on a stretch of fine white sand, or commune with the tropical creatures as you dive along coral ridges or the colorful wreck of a WWII war ship.

On shore, the lush jungle shelters stone temples and mischievous monkeys. The “artistic capital” of Ubud is the perfect place to see a cultural dance performance, take a batik or silver-smithing workshop, or invigorate your mind and body in a yoga class.

2 | New York, USA

It might seem like an obvious choice, but New York is a place everyone should visit. From spectacular Broadway shows through to some of the world’s most famous landmarks, you’ll never run short of things to do when you visit this bustling metropolis.

Those visiting New York will probably want to go for at least three nights, and a great time to visit is in the run-up to Christmas. This is because shopping in New York is unlike pretty much anywhere else on earth, and you should be able to come home with loads of great presents – which should cost less than they would in the UK.

3 | London, UK

It’s little wonder London is one of the world’s top tourist destinations, attracting upward of 15 million visitors each and every year. Britain’s capital city is a vibrant arts and entertainment center (its theaters are always busy), and 50 years after the Beatles, the country’s music scene still rocks.

London also boasts one of the planet’s greatest concentrations of cultural attractions. From royal palaces to the people’s parliament, from Roman ruins to castles and cathedrals, you could spend endless days exploring London’s sites without ever running out of unique things to see and do.

4 | Bangkok, Thailand

Bangkok, Thailand is a cacophony of sights and sounds that handsomely rewards urban explorers willing to get a little lost in the city. This is a frenetic jigsaw puzzle of towering skyscrapers, colorful taxicabs, motorcycle taxis, and busy pedestrians. When you visit Bangkok you discover what this diverse city—an amalgamation of old and new—has to offer. It may be a busy metropolis, but at dawn you can see Buddhist monks clad in yellow robes filling the streets.

Like the rest of Thailand, there’s a lot of negotiation and bartering: haggling at markets is the norm, and a language of its own. Come here and you’ll find a wide range of activities to amuse yourself, from the historical and religious to shopping, galleries, and spas.

5 | Singapore, Singapore

Long dismissed as little more than a sterile stopover, Singapore has reinvented itself as one of the world’s hot-list destinations. The world’s aspiring ‘City in a Garden’ is an unexpected wonderland for fans of all things green and natural. Catch a city bus and end up in ancient rainforests rustling with monkeys and Greater Racket-tailed Drongos, muddy wetlands teeming with lobsters and giant lizards, or sleepy farms heaving with bananas, papayas and jackfruit.

Alternatively, hop on a bumboat and then cycle your way around a rustic island paradise. Or just stay central and escape to Singapore’s soothing Botanic Gardens. Welcome to the wild side, in an oh-so-Singaporean, user-friendly package.

So, there you have it – five great ideas for your next holiday. Now all you need to do is book your flights, find the accommodation at Booking.com, and give them a call to make sure you’re getting the best deal possible. Then you can sit back and start looking forward to the great holiday you’ve just booked.
