Therefore, I hope that you will find these travel resources useful as well.

Accommodation

Booking.com

Booking.com is the portal I use to book most of my accommodations. The prices are usually slightly lower than on other portals and you can browse over 2 million properties in 226 countries and territories.

Hostelworld

Hostel World is the go-to booking portal for hostels around the world. There are no booking fees.
It usually lists a wider range of hostels in Asia than other platforms.
