    Why you should stay local for your next trip

    All too often when planning a trip, we think of the hotel as just somewhere to lay our head. But what if we looked at our hotel accommodation from a different perspective?

    Instead of balancing comfort, budget and convenience when selecting a hotel or guesthouse, taking a more holistic approach can uplift your travel experience. From choosing unique curated accommodation, to staying in less touristy neighbourhoods that let you get out and experience the surrounding community, staying local opens you up to to a more authentic, enriching visit.

    Boutique hotels in charming neighbourhoods away from the more obvious tourist spots provide a chance to experience the real life of a city. Smaller in size, these hotels can deliver a more curated and personalised service, as well as touches of luxury and charm you may not find in conventional hotels within the same price range. However, the benefits of staying local extend beyond the four walls of your hotel.

    The moment you step outside, you will discover bars, restaurants, shopping, cultural and sightseeing opportunities you might otherwise have missed. This more immersive way of travelling lets you feel part of a community, rather than just a visitor
