The summer season is now just a couple of months away and a lot of people both locally and abroad are gearing up for their much awaited summer holiday in the beaches of Southeast Asia. Usually prices tend to go up during this season but it shouldn’t deter you from visiting.

Here are some tips on How to Find a Cheap Accommodation for your Beach Holidays:

1. Stay in Hostels: If you have a very tight budget, I suggest that you stay in cheap hostels in Southeast Asia. There are many hostel booking website that you can choose from such as Hostel World that can help you find that affordable accommodation.

3. Stay in an Alternative Destination: Main tourist destinations are often more expensive than less popular places. For example, if you want to enjoy Phuket without busting your budget on accommodation then avoid staying on the main tourist strip of Patong but instead stay on the numerous less popular beaches of Phuket.

4. Search Online: If you want to stay in hotels but could not afford its high price tag, then I suggest that you search online for some promotions or search the area for new hotels. New hotels usually offer “soft opening rates” which is a few percent low compare to the regular published rates.

5. Look for Value: I also suggest that you consider checking out the overall value of your accommodation booking. Some hostel or hotels offers the same rate like the others (or just a few dollars difference) but have value added perks such as free breakfast, free pickup, free wifi, free coffee or tea, free use of gym or swimming pool facilities and sometimes even free city tours.
