Beijing is one of the most interesting cities to visit. Especially for Westerners, as the culture is different, making it a desirable place to visit. For that particular group, it’s a culture shock to visit Beijing. It’s a huge city that can be tricky to understand. With the challenge of trying to figure out a new city, it helps when your hostel is a safe and comfortable place to stay.


For a hostel that is an all-around powerhouse, choose Templeside Lianlian Hutong Guest House. The hostel has a rating of 6.7 out of 10 from more than 200 reviews.

It’s a great place to stay during a trip to the city and will add to the memories made.


Another fantastic hostel in Beijing is the Peking Yard Hostel. Also located near shops and attractions, this hostel is a great fit for smaller groups of people looking for a more relaxed setting.

Under $100: Poble Nou, Barcelona

Just north of Barcelona’s bustling city center, the capital of Catalonia transitions from Gothic cathedrals, tiny alleyways and hordes of bike tours into a more livable neighborhood known as Poble Nou. Close to the coast, Metro-accessible and rife with local hang-out spots, this area has become a favorite of residents who seek solace from the masses of tourists that crowd the center.

Take Me to Tahiti

Mana is the life force Tahitians believe connects all things. Feel the mana for yourself on a visit to the islands of Tahiti, and sample some of these activities as you connect with the breathtaking nature of the South Pacific. Fly Air France from the United States to Tahiti in the most convenient and comfortable way and let your holiday start on board.

Golden Circle Tour of Iceland

The small island nation of Iceland may have only one major “highway,” the 828-mile Route 1, better known as Ring Road because it navigates the entire perimeter of the country, but it can be difficult to traverse depending on weather conditions at particular times of the year. While a road trip around the island is a fantastic adventure that reveals unimaginably unique landscapes, it can be a considerable challenge for those self-identifying as anywhere from timid to even moderately adventurous in their travels. In these cases, a full-day Golden Circle tour is the perfect antidote to any FOMO experienced by foregoing the road trip.
