Tips – How to Travel on A Budget Way

Who don’t like traveling?

I mean everybody need it. Either for escaping from busy life, relaxing, or maybe just a hobby. But if it’s a hobby do they have proper rules to organize their own budget? Think they’ll need extra attention to not run out all the budget right? Cause they must save some money to continue traveling to another region or country.

So the solution is to plan a travel in a budget way. But what are the simplest way to organize a budget travel?

Here are my little tips to help you travel in a budget way:

1. Book Airplane Ticket and Hotel in Advance

I think everybody know about it. It’s a very basic way that I always do when I want to travel outside Bali. Usually, I get cheaper price if I book an airplane ticket, hotel room, or guests house in advance. Well sometimes it depends on the date. If you book an airplane 2 months in advance but for a holiday season, then you’ll get high price, but still a bit cheaper rather than you book it when entering the holiday season.

For example, you book an airplane now, on May, for holiday on July, which will be the month of high season in Bali. The price might look expensive. But it’s better you book on May, or 2 months in advance, cause it will get higher and higher near July. The hotel room price also play the same rules as airplane ticket.

Therefore, if you are planning a holiday right now, don’t forget to always check the updated ticket price.

2. Travel Off-Peak Season

Thinking about traveling in off-peak is one of the best way to find cheaper ticket and hotel room. First, you need to research more about the destination you want to visit. You should know when is the peak season, then you can choose to travel in there before or after that peak season ended.

3. Traveling with Lot of Friends

Sharing is another option to keep your travel budget. By sharing food or rental with your friends, you must get cheaper price than usual, because you divided your budget. The more you have friends to travel, the more you’ll divide your budget as cheaper as possible.

Culture – Welcoming Nyepi in Bali

As a person who was born in this island, I am ready to welcome Nyepi for the 23 times! Am 27 y o but I spend other 4 years to live and study in Jogjakarta.

It’s a hindu’s new year celebration, where everybody can’t leave their house. We should exactly stay all day long in our house or hotel without make a noise. However, Nyepi refers to sepi (Indonesian word), which means quiet.

Even if we’re not hindus, we have to support them not to go out or make a sound while they celebrate Nyepi.
The purpose of Nyepi is to purify the soul. This holy day starts from Ogoh Ogoh parade which will be held one day before Nyepi.

Ogoh-ogoh describes a monster, evil spirit, or negativity that exist in everyone’s soul. The parade of Ogoh-ogoh explains our effort to drive away all negativity from our soul. As the result, you can say that Nyepi is like a reincarnation day, a chance to purify the soul after successfully drive out the negativity.

It has a really good meaning huh?
