Explore the World: 5 Free Travel Buddy Apps for Android

One of my biggest dreams is to travel the world to meet different kinds of people. Learning about their culture, food, lifestyle and everything that makes them who they are excites me to see the mystery of each country or city.

Explore the Lion City with YourSingapore Guide: Singapore

I love traveling. And yes, I dream of visiting Singapore someday. Actually, I was supposed to go to Singapore last month with my friends. However, because of work load and some unfortunate events I failed to join them in the trip. Poor me. I felt really bad and devastated for quite some time because I was looking forward to it. On the other hand, because I intend to stay positive as much as possible and stop myself from sulking since it happened already and there’s nothing more I can do about it, I just told myself that I still have time to pursue this dream of mine. Just like what my friend said, “Singapore will always be in Singapore. You can still visit it anytime you wish.” With this in mind, your hunch is right. My answer is a loud “Yes!”. I am still planning to travel to Singapore given the chance.

Anyway, enough of my unrequested storytelling. Sorry about that. I came across that story because in this app review I will present to you one of the coolest and most helpful travel applications that you can install on your Android and iOS devices. Hopefully, this travel app that I will feature is going to be your instant tourist buddy-app when you go to the Asia’s Lion City, no other than Singapore.

Pack your bags and purchase those tickets now. All together, let’s say: Singapore, here we come!

Expedia Hotels – Book A Room

An out-of-town leisure or business trip should be well-planned to avoid travel mishaps. I’ve learned it the hard way that everything should be ironed out before jumping on the wheels, believe me. It’s okay to do away with some travel must-do’s if you may, but as what my relatives tell me, never sacrifice where you’ll be spending the night. It should be a credible inn which is secure and of course, clean.

If you have enough to spare, the least you can do when your trip becomes ‘dull’ is to treat yourself to a nice hotel with amenities to die for. But looking around with no idea whatsoever where the hotels are, you’ll just be wasting your time, effort, and gas. To lessen all the hassle, why not equip your smart devices with the app called Expedia Hotels – Book A Room?
