In the lieu to enjoy the lifestyle of a larger city, people sacrifice their health, time and money. Similar is the situation of people who’ve settled in Sydney. Due to the busy lifestyle in the metropolis, they’re always preoccupied with something or the other, making them highly stressed out and leaving them with absolutely no time for their family. Hold on to your nerves, because you’ll probably jump with excitement when we tell you about Wollongong, located just about an hour from Sydney.
Wollongong offers you all the benefits you can get by residing in Sydney, such as easy going locals, a city that supports arts and crafts to the apex, offers you high class restaurants to go out and night clubs to relax once you are done with your business for the day – minus all the traffic and monetary expenses you’ll have to bear with in Sydney! Since it is in close proximity to the capital of New South Wales, it is similarly built and gives you access to all the amenities you’d require.
Wollongong is a beach destination with about 30 kilometers of sandy beach adorning its beautiful coastline. It serves as a perfect destination to those who don’t wish to get lost in the hustle-bustle of a busy Sydney during peak vacation months and it also a great center of learning for foreign students due to the presence of The University of Wollongong. Rarely do you come across a vacation destination that offers multiple benefits rolled into one. Students would love to learn at a place that offers them such a great uninhibited view of beaches and the coastline while learning.
If you’re coming here as a tourist, there’s abundance of hotels in Wollongong. Though they can be costly if you book a room on the spot, it would be much cheaper if you could just book it while you’re booking your flight tickets. Here’s how you can save up a lot of money on your Wollongong accommodation just by considering a few tips:
- Use travel websites: Third party travel websites that allow flight bookings also enable one to search for hotels. Since there are a lot of competitive websites in this field, they try to outdo each other by offering discount coupons on bookings. You can save as much as 50% if you book 2-3 months prior to your date of stay.
- Consult travel agencies: Daily, the newspapers are filled with advertisements of travel agencies who offer the typical ‘Exotic Far East’ and the ‘Romantic Switzerland’ tours. Since they are well connected with hotels and airlines, you can visit their office to find out about accommodation in Wollongong. They offer discounts on bookings done a couple of months prior to the intended date of journey.
