We’re closer and closer to our relaxing holidays, so you too are probably already dreaming about it, or maybe you’ve even started planning for it. Happily, in today’s technological world it’s easier to plan and maybe it’s even safer. It’s easier because we can book (almost) everything online and it’s safer because we don’t have to take a restaurant’s or a hotel’s brochure or a presentation word for it. We can see for ourselves how things really are (at least to some extent).
Well, on of the most useful modern tools we have for planning our trips, tool that also minimizes the risk of having a nasty surprise when we reach our destinations, is TripAdvisor. Whether you’re using their website or their mobile app, the information you can get there are very valuable, because the evaluations are made by people who actually visited those places and experienced the services first hand. And since it’s such a popular tool, the huge number of ratings that keep piling up for every hotel, restaurant or site and so on tends to reflect the actual reality „on the field”.
And if you’re still dreaming or early planning, you might find this useful – we searched for TripAdvisor’s best hotels in 2015 and we’re letting you know where they are.
