Dianping is a food and restaurant guide website in China. It lists out most of the vegetarian restaurant in Guangzhou. The website is written in Chinese only. Use baidu translate and baidu map to find out more information about the restaurant. In addition, although they claim they are vegetarian restaurants but no certification is done. And not every ...

"Trust but verify." If you're traveling during a "real" off season, occupancy rates will be lower than usual. But there may be something peculiar to that location (a conference, sports event, etc.) that nullifies this. The "safe" way to play this game is to monitor the hotel vacancy rates for your target dates over the internet in advance. If somehow, ...

This doesn't directly answer the question, but it's too long for a comment. If it's out of place, feel free to delete. As others have said, off-season rooms are usually available without a reservation (and often below normal/advertised rates, through sites like booking.com, priceline, etc). But one strategy you might consider employing is taking advantage ...

Generally yes, but you need to be aware that the local definition of "Off Season" can vary quite a bit. Most places have really busy times that you may not be aware off. Boston, for example, has "Marathon" in mid April and "College Graduation" in mid to end May where it's almost impossible to get a room and where rooms are quite expensive.

Basically, yes. Traveling out of season you do not need to make reservations. But if you travel in the low/closed season you might find many places closed and the few that are open very popular and at times booked out when you want to stay. And when weekdays are low season already, the weekends might still be mid or even high season. Further more, you need ...

I have a very similar JFK layover coming up - I've researched the question a bit, and here's what I could find: There's a site, https://www.between9and5.com/ , which lets you search for "Day Rates" at hotels near airports. There are a few options listed for JFK at around $75 for a 10am-to-3pm stay. Apparently you can find the best "day rates" by calling ...

I think the consumables in the rooms are well covered in the other answers. The thing I miss in most of them is the food at breakfast (and maybe other buffets.) In Norway there are extensive breakfast buffets in hostels, when I was there most of those had a notice that you could eat as much as you liked but were not allowed to take food out of the room. ...

Here is the latest updated site of Booking.com with 29 hotels that you can choose from within Baguio City. I was born and raised in Baguio City, so anything you ask about this place I would gladly answer for you. I would suggest to choose a hotel within Camp John Hay area. You'll love the scenery and the heavenly aroma of pine trees surrounding you.

You can take away daily consumables, which you have used and which cannot be used again or given to others like soap, shampoos, shaving kit, sponges etc. and you can also take pens, magazines and note pads. I do suggest to take away towels if it's necessary during your travel, because some of the hotels consider it as scrap. They won't mind taking that with ...

I found the above answers to be unclear. So: 1) You can and should take as many pairs of the cheap slippers as you can grab (the single-use ones with a logo, wrapped in plastic). These are really handy and cool! 2) You can and should (if for some reason you want to) take all the toiletries: that is to say the small bottles of shampoo, etc., and similarly ...

No, it's simply done to make it more convenient, more "elegant" if you will. Just as they might, say, pull the stems from apples or polish apples. Some joints actually start to pull the banana skin down for you, to make it even easier! :)

Requesting specific criteria for your booked room is indeed a service provided professional travel agents. My employer's corporate travel agency (Carlson Wagonlit) for instance provide a common selection of special requests as shown the in the picture below. Choosing one of these only indicates a preference, not a guarantee, since it's highly dependent on ...

There are actually many cheaper options in Probolinggo than the ones visible on internet or in lonely planet Indonesia (edition 2013). I stayed in a guesthouse for 80'000 IDR per night, for a double bedroom with shower (cold water only). It was clean, not far from the train station, and staff was nice. The guesthouse is called "female guesthouse", although ...

I found a helpful video for exactly this problem - and it's an easy solution: just put a pillow under your midsection and your spine will be much better supported. http://youtu.be/DQgpE3DIcXs

Not sure if this is what you would be looking for exactly but I did find on Googles hotel search that you can put in a start date and end date and search. When on the search results page you can click on the little bar chart on the right hand side of the dates and give you a little chart of when it's the cheapest. Google flights is similar as well.

Are you planning to sleep on the streets if the hotels are full :)? All jokes aside, second week of July is the peak season for tourists in Seoul. I'm not sure which part of Seoul you're planning to stay at, but for popular sites (Gangnam, Yeoeuido, Gangbuk), I assure you that the hotels will be booked by then. Yes, even with the MERS thing, unless if MERS ...

There is no answer on this question as this highly depends on the hotel you want to stay: So check with the hotel. But this being said: It's not very common to pay cash in advance so expect some surprised questions. Maybe paying with debit or credit card would be an better idea, as you don't have to carry cash with you but don't need to pay in advance.

Like most hotel chains, they have a number of different sub brands at different price points. Some will be "hipper" or noisier than others, some will be in different parts of town (near the business and financial district vs near the tourist attractions, for example. It is a good idea to understand, say, the difference between a W and a Westin, and in the ...
