Looking for cheap accommodation

Say no to weekend
Weekend is leisure time and lots of people sue it to have a short trip. It means, the price rate is rising on weekend. Thus, it is more recommended to have a trip during weekdays (Monday-Friday).

If you are traveling with your friends or families, it is more recommended to rent a villa or apartment consists of several rooms which you can share with other families or renters. This is less expensive than booking several rooms in the hotel.
