I know for people who like to be organised would freak out about not booking accommodation before arriving somewhere. But if you trust me, you won’t regret it.
Prices online can be so expensive and especially in Asia where you can bater your accommodation I found that it is just easier to just arrive and find your new home.
Another thing to consider is that there are not a lot of accommodation in Asia are online, so the home stays and the really sweet guesthouses won’t be on the internet. And to be honest they are the best places to stay at.
If you do it this way you get to actually see what you’re going to get. Sometimes the photos online may seem better than it actually is in real life especially when you’ve forked out a bit.
Believe it or not you’ll be able to save money. If you go into a place and you fancy it, you can negotiate a better price. If you stay longer than you’ll be able to get a good deal. These things you just can’t do online.
