Where are you going next?

In my previous blog post, I mentioned that if I were to do a solo holiday, I’d go to Tokyo in a jiffy, it being a city I’m very familiar with and therefore comfortable enough to travel on my own.

So I searched Tokyo on Hotels.com.  And wow the types of filters they have are mindblowing!  Instead of just sorting places by stars or pricing, the website also sorts out hotels by distance and landmarks which I found pretty interesting. If you’re going to a new place, you might not know where everything is in geographical terms, so choosing a place according to landmark is genius.

Damn detailed can. Predictably impressed with ‘childcare’ and ‘cribs’ hahaha.

Accomodation type filter also very detailed! Cottages!? Ryokan!? Yes please.

The gorgeous, gorgeous lobby.

I got really into it and decided to check out other more obscure places. Hotels.com has literally thousands of hotels listed so I thought ok I’ll challenge it hahaha. Fatty might be going with his forum mates to Bhutan next year (how cool is that!?) so I searched it up.

Rooms are nice too.  It’s described as a luxury hotel and the going price is RM2,000+.  On the high side, to be honest, but I figure Bhutan probably doesn’t have a lot of supply in the way of luxury accomodation.

This hotel looks cool too.  But when I saw the price tag, I nearly fainted. RM15,000 for a night! Are we buying up the whole hotel or what!? Hahahaha.

 

Since I was on it, I decided to get wishful and started googling for nice kid friendly hotels for our next family vacation (don’t know when).

Decided to go for the happiest place on earth hehehe.  Searched for Anaheim, California.

Wow. The attention to detail is wow. I like that we put in the kids’ age for Hotels.com to filter accordingly. 🙂

This is the Anaheim Hilton, close enough to Disneyland.  It’s only going for RM400+ a room I seriously feel like booking it ASAP.

Nice hotel some more for that price!

And this is the kids water play area. *hearts in eyes*

Browsing Hotels, I’m so tempted to turn this solo trip idea into an actual plan. Japan is after all one of my favorite places – if not the favorite and it would be awesome planning a trip by myself to just do what I want to do, and capture the person I am besides being a mom.

After all, planning a trip is half the fun. Maybe next year? 🙂
