If you are looking for a stay at any Kuching hotel on your next holiday but are on a budget, there are plenty of alternatives to look for that is not only comfortable but affordable too!


1)         Homestays

There are plenty of homestays you can search for with the help of a search engine. Homestays are really comfortable without breaking the bank, and it is the best option for big families looking to stay at. Since the word “homestays” already implies that it is a home, you can come back from a long day of adventures to a place that is comfortable and feels like home. It is spacious for large groups, clean, and some even provide cable TV, air-conditioners, and even hot showers! When it comes to food, you can just always cook since there will be a kitchen with a stove and a refrigerator available for you disposal.


2)         B&Bs and Inns

Unlike homestays, B&Bs actually offer a dining area and restaurants. B&Bs are sometimes a bit smaller as compared to the space of a homestay but it is convenient if you are going in smaller groups. And just like homestays, B&Bs and inns are easily accessible via the world wide web. You can just easily make your reservations and pay the necessary deposits with the click of a button. Travelling has never been easier.


3)         Hostels

This is for the adventurous ones. There are also plenty of hostels to stay at if you are a solo traveller looking for a place to crash for the night, or you just want to meet with people who have the same interests as you. Hostels are a great place to meet, connect, and interact with people that are also avid travellers and have a passion for adventures. If you are not keen on the idea of staying overnight amongst strangers, you can always opt for a private room.


4)         Couchsurfing

“When in Rome, do as the Romans do” is probably the most famous quote used with regards to travelling. The best way to do this is by living among the locals and letting them show you around. Couchsurfing is a mobile app that lets you search for a host in the area that you are staying at and inform them that you want to stay with them. It is somewhat similar to a foster family kind of exchange but in a shorter and brief way. Just download the app on your phones, and just start searching for a couch to surf!

It will not matter if you stay for a day or maybe even longer, these options are definitely not to be missed. And will definitely make you want to come back for another trip to the Land of the Hornbills!
