Affordable Winter Travel Ideas to Escape the Cold

Article by Caterina Christakos

As someone who has lived in northerly climates for much of my life, I know well that feeling that sets in around late January or early February. You reach that upsetting point where you can hardly remember what warm weather feels like, and just the idea of a 70 degree day is enough to send you into one of those hour-long daydreams that can really get in the way of one’s productivity. Personally, I find that winter is much easier if I can escape to a warmer climate at least once during the harsh winter months. If you can afford it, it can help keep your energy up as you wait for those first achingly glorious warm April days.

That’s why I’m offering these affordable winter travel ideas. In today’s economy, many of us can’t afford the luxury Hawaii or Bahamas vacation. But if you just want to relax and enjoy yourself while escaping the blustery winds of the north, there are plenty of things you can do.

South America: Don’t forget that the winter months for us are summer in the Southern Hemisphere. Yes, South America is a very broad category, but there are so many parts of the continent that are perfect. Air travel is relatively cheap, and countries like Chile, Argentina, Peru, Uruguay, and Brazil are quite affordable for people from the U.S. Personally, I love Buenos Aires for my city enjoyment, but I also love the diverse natural landscapes of Chile. If you’ve never been to South America, try it out. Many North Americans are surprised by what a warm, beautiful, and welcoming continent it is.

Southern Europe: Many parts of Europe aren’t exactly cheap, but there are actually many southern portions of the continent that make great affordable winter travel ideas. Spain and Portugal are relatively cheap, as are many Mediterranean islands and the southern portions of Italy. And then there are beautiful, historic Greece and Turkey. All of these areas are warm, affordable, and full of everything you could want as a traveler.

Africa: If you’ve never explored the diverse natural climates of Africa, now may be the time to get started. Practically the entire continent is warm year-round, and the people in the most well-traveled parts of Africa are famously welcoming and kind to outsiders from all over the world.

Caribbean and Mexico: Some of the most beautiful beaches in the world are within just a few hundred miles of the southern U.S., but many of us never get to see them. If you’re looking for affordable winter travel ideas, look into places like Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, Jamaica, and Mexico. U.S. dollars can go quite a long way in places like this, and there are more than enough tourist amenities to keep you happy and comfortable during your stay.

Thailand: Thailand stays warm year round, and it is most comfortable during the winter months. It’s an increasingly popular destination for Australian and East Asian travelers who want both beautiful beaches and exciting modern cities like Bangkok, but there are often some very good deals for flights from the U.S. They don’t come around every day, though, so you have to snatch them up when you find them.

Manila Hotels: Why Holiday Inn Galleria Manila Hotel is Your Refreshing “Home-Away-from-Home”

Article by Kelvin Kong

The Holiday Inn Galleria Manila Hotel is your sweet, warm and refreshing “home away from home”. It sits graciously in the middle of downtown Ortigas Center in Manila, Philippines. It stands prim but winsome around various establishments such as Robinson’s Galleria Manila – located practically next door to the hotel, a shopping and leisure mall rated world-class by Filippino and overseas shoppers alike.

Rated four (4)-star with 285 well-groomed guest rooms and suites, the hotel recently underwent renovation that has revamped its look and feel. Its congenial atmosphere is now more distinctly highlighted, setting it a class apart from the other hotels.

The Holiday Inn Galleria offers an excellent view of the city. It takes just 45-minutes driving along a 15-kilometer stretch from the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) to reach this accommodation.

Upon entrance into the hotel, you are greeted by staff who are effectively multi-lingual, with a ready smile for everyone, anytime – such warm Fillipino hospitality. Other than the native language, they also speak English, Chinese, and French. If you have time, you can even attend brief tutorials to learn some native expressions like “Magandang Umaga” – which means “Good Morning”, “Kumusta Ka?” – which means “How are you?”, “Salamat” – which means “Thank You”, and other commonly used expressions of courtesy and respect.

Your appreciation of the hotel grows deeper as you discover the other neighbouring landmarks and establishments that surround the Holiday Inn Manila. You will be delighted to know that the SM Mega Mall (one of the biggest shopping malls in the country), and the Shangri-La Plaza mall (a cozy leisure rendezvous), are just within walking distance. Whether you are up for an exquisite dining experience or a relaxed and casual partake of food, these two malls will surely measure up to your expectations. These malls offer a seemingly endless rows of boutiques, kids’ entertainment dens, video arcades, sports and music hubs, filled book shelves, stores offering various domestic items, and a lot more. If you are fond of genuine international brands, The Podium, also located within the vicinity, will surely ignite some more excitement in you. Apart from these, if your shopping style is more towards easy and practical, the St. Francis Square at the back of the SM Megamall might be perfect for your needs.

The hotel rooms speak of order and neatness. The smell is fresh and inviting. The aroma of your own prepared coffee in the morning will surely start your busy day in high spirits. The aromatic coffee is complemented by a major broadsheet which greets you by the door. At bath time, you and your roommate can maximize the time, using your room’s separate shower. You are provided with robes and slippers and a hair dryer for a quick fix making you feel the convenience of your own home provisions. Beside your closet is an iron and an ironing board for your dress or suit’s perfect press. A shoe shine is also available in one of the racks in your closet to give your footwear an impressive glow. After a business appointment, you can arrange to have your laundry picked up and get your suit ready for the next day’s meeting or deal.

After a busy day’s work, try staying inside the comforts of your room and entertain yourself with either a local show or an international program through a remote-controlled colored TV with cable channels. There is even a premium cable allowing you to have a re-run of your favorite movie. In the suites, guests may choose instead to turn on the stereo and just listen to a soothing musical selection. The foods from your own refrigerator can keep you full and sane the whole day or you may turn to your reliable 24-hour dining room service.

On a lazy morning, you can take a few lapses at the hotel’s outdoor pool where you can safely bask under the sun. In an active afternoon, you might want to try trimming your abs or honing your muscles at the fully-equipped gym. Afterwhich, the sauna on the 5th floor can be a very good refuge for your challenged physique. This will freshen you up and make sure you are ready even for a romantic date at night. The hotel also provides a private limousine for all its loyal valued guests. No need to worry about how you would look on that date, since your friendly beauty salon inside the hotel will keep you confident the whole night long.

Apart from the above, those of you who are golf enthusiasts will find great satisfaction in the Wack Wack Golf Course, located just 2-kilometers away from the Holiday Inn Galleria hotel. For food galore, you must visit The Fort Bonifacio Global City, situated merely 3-kilometers from the hotel, to come very close to a food haven experience of sorts. The nearby Metrorail Transit or MRT can take you for a fun ride farther northeast from Ortigas to see the public market at landmark Balintawak. You can then take the train back to Ortigas and farther south to Makati – the country’s premier financial district – within a span of only 30 minutes. There is really so much to do and enjoy during your stay. Your multi-lingual staff has an endless list of activities for an excitement that escalates day after day. With all these, an overnight rate of USD 90 becomes so reasonable.

We have not even mentioned that the Holiday Inn also has a business center that provides you with photocopying, printing, courier, fax, email and internet, and a complete secretarial services. You can even rent a mobile phone for a very minimal fee.

As for dining, the hotel has restaurants that feature Asian flavors and varied international menu options. It also has a cocktail bar where fine wines are served and enjoyed by the guests while they watch the latest sports events from the bar’s TV monitors.

The comfort, security, and the keen taste of your own home is here duplicated in the Philippines, specifically in The Holiday Inn Galleria Manila. Try it and experience the pleasure for yourself!
