5. Work out types of traveling
There are basically two main types of traveling.
Self- traveling is considered one of the most attractive and challenging activities nowadays. People list out the things to do and to spend, then they just feel free to go anywhere they want, to proactively do whatever they desire to do. All they need is freedom, exploration, and satisfaction. However, during their journey, they will get some unexpected troubles. Specifically, they probably have to spend a lot of time finding their accommodation which fits their budget, making a list of what to do, what to eat, what to buy, etc.
In contrast, following a travel agency tour will be the best supporter for you during your summer holiday. Just imagine you are from Western countries, and you have never been to Vietnam and Cambodia before. You have to spend a week, a month, even longer to make a plan of what to experience in your trip. Instead of that, why shouldn’t you leave your trust in a travel company like Luxury Travel, where you can customize your type of activities as well as your itinerary? This is the biggest discrepancy between the three-star agency and five-star company.
6. Make accommodation reservation in advance
After deciding the length of your summer vacation in Vietnam and Cambodia, you should carry out the resort or hotel that suits your demand, budget, and purpose. We recommend you to book a room package with enough luxury, good services, suitable scenery, and location. Moreover, it must also include extra services such as spa, golf, dining and water sports for you to experience.
Up to now, many resorts, hostels, and hotels are continuously offering a variety of appealing summer holiday package.
