Have the Vacation of a Lifetime by Booking With a Travel Agent

With apps and websites devoted to travel, you might wonder why you would speak to a travel agent near you. Travel agents are not passé, they offer many benefits to you whether you’re traveling abroad or overseas. When you’re looking for a special vacation or traveling to places unknown, your travel agent is your resource who can save you time and money by finding the points of interest and lodging that meets your needs.

Special Needs
More travelers need unique accommodations, for children, pets, or themselves. Your travel agent knows the questions to ask and find those places that work for you and your family. If you have dietary restrictions or physical limitations, your travel agent can find the information for you and help you find the right places to visit. If you’re traveling to a place that could be unsafe for tourists, due to unrest or crime, your travel agent can direct you to safe travel and lodging. Speak to a travel agent near you about the vacation you want. Special requests can be worked out before you go, leaving you free to enjoy your stay.

Multiple Destinations
When you’re making plans to visit somewhere that involves different sites, your travel agent makes the most of your time by planning your trip to get where you want to be quickly. Think about how much time you will spend just trying to get somewhere in a place that you are not familiar with. Instead of spending your vacation or business trip finding the right transportation, enjoy your trip when you speak to a travel agent.

Understanding the Culture
When you speak to a travel agent about your vacation, you have an insight into the culture where you’ll be traveling. For example, in Spain, everyone eats tapas while standing. This may not seem like a big deal, unless you have a problem standing for long periods of time and need to be able to sit down. Some foreign countries have different views on same-sex relationships, which could make traveling there difficult. Working with your travel agent gives you access to this information so that you aren’t in an awkward situation. The knowledge that your travel agent provides is important to your overall enjoyment on your trip.

A Travel Agent Has Clout
By working in the industry, your agent develops relationships with people who make things happen at your travel destination. This gets into places that you could never do on your own. Your online app can’t do anything when the rooms aren’t available, but your travel agent knows who to speak with to get that connecting room or when things go wrong. Don’t underestimate the value of a good travel specialist who wants to make your vacation special.

Find the Best Deals
Speak to a travel agent near you to find the best deals on the trip you want. Agents stay up to date with what’s new from their travel partners, so you can find great prices on your resort or cruise ship. If you’re planning a wedding, you already have enough on your plate and don’t need to spend time planning your honeymoon or travel for guests. Let a travel agent take over some of the work, so you can actually relax on your vacation.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again. Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists.... Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street.... Come... Let's Go! We started from the beginning of the str
