THE 8 best NAPA red wine trips

Last Updated: 2/2/2020 | February 2nd, 2020

Napa Valley is easily one of the most well-known wine-producing regions in the world, and last year nearly four million people headed there — it is big company for northern California!

Of course, if you plan on spending some time in Napa Valley and nearby Sonoma, you’ll many likely want to explore some of the 600 wineries in the area. A great way to do this — both to get some local, insider knowledge and so that there’s no need to drink and drive — is to take a Napa red wine tour.

There are nearly as numerous red wine trip options as there are vineyards. I’ve noted some of my favorites here, and you can decide which fits your style and, much more importantly, your budget. just remember that you’ll typically also have to pay tasting fees on top of the trip costs — these vary between $20 and $40 — though numerous will waive that fee if you purchase some wine. also don’t forget, especially if you’re coming from outside the United States, that you’ll need to be 21 or over to join these tours, though some allow children to label along.

1. Napa Valley red wine Trolley

If you’re after something a bit different, then the Napa Valley red wine Trolley is a good way to go. instead of a regular trip bus, you’ll ride on a replica of a cable television car. It’s an open-air car, of course, so make sure you pick the best weather to try this.

Tours leave from the Oxbow Market in Napa; a $99 trip includes four wineries and a casual picnic-style lunch, plus limitless bottled water and soft drinks between tastings. You can upgrade to the full-day Castle trip ($139), which includes a two-hour stop and tasting at Castello di Amorosa.

2. Napa Valley Bike trips

Of course, being a valley full of vineyards, Napa is a really beautiful place, so exploring it by bicycle is a great option. Napa Valley Bike trips provides either guided or self-guided rides, leaving from their store in Yountville. The popular half-day guided trip is $124 per person, with two winery visits and a great guide who’ll give you the full story of the area.

The useful part about the self-guided trips is that besides being able to visit the wineries you choose at your own pace, you still get a box lunch, and any red wine you purchase will be picked up for you (riding with red wine in your backpack gets old really fast). Self-guided trips cost $114 per person and also include comfy bikes, helmets, and all the planning info you need.

3. Calistoga Bikeshop

Another bicycle option is Calistoga Bikeshop, a popular rental shop that also runs guided day trips for $150, including a hybrid bike, a picnic lunch, and pick-up for any red wine you buy. The guides plan a distinct route depending on what the group members want, starting from their shop in Calistoga.

If you have an extra day in the area and don’t need much more wine, Calistoga also provides great mountain biking trips to the Palisades or along the Oat hill Mine Trail.

4. Platypus red wine Tours

Platypus brands itself as the “anti-wine-snob red wine tour,” so if you want to have a fun day learning much more about wine, then this is a good choice. (The name is memorable, but you won’t actually see a platypus anywhere in Napa Valley, in case you’re wondering.)

Platypus runs small-group trips, taking in four wineries for $110 (including a picnic lunch), focusing on small and medium-sized, typically family-owned wineries. You can choose from trips centered on Sonoma Valley, Napa Valley, or North Sonoma.

5. active red wine Adventures

As the name suggests, active red wine Adventures provides trips that include much more than just red wine tasting, so it’s a great way to explore Napa Valley. For example, the Hike & red wine trips start with a two-hour hike in some of the valley’s beautiful landscapes and relocation on to a lunch and winery tasting experience. These cost $139 plus lunch because you can choose from a high-end restaurant lunch or a vineyard picnic. They offer similar trips in the Sonoma area, too.

6. green dream Tours

Try some red wine and help the world. green dream has a focus on sustainability: besides using green company practices, it also purchases carbon offsets to balance its use of fuel. Their Napa Valley trips ($144, $154 on weekends) are among the few where the tasting fees at three boutique wineries are included.

Green dream also provides a combo tour, taking in three wineries across Sonoma and Napa Valley, with lunch at the Oxbow Public Market ($139 weekdays, $149 weekends). For visitors to San Francisco, there’s a combo with a trip of Alcatraz plus two Sonoma boutique wineries, for $179.

7. small lot red wine Tours

If you’re coming by car to the Napa Valley region, then small lot can be a really budget-friendly way to delight in a red wine tour. They offer a trip guide who’ll drive your car for you for the day, and design a trip route just best for you, depending on the kind of red wineyou want to taste, what you want to do for lunch, and whether you’re planning on purchasing wine. At $50 per hour (with a four-hour minimum), if you’ve got a car full of friends, this can work out to be one of the most affordable ways to explore Napa but still have local expert advice.

8. Napa Valley red wine country Tours

Napa Valley red wine country trips offer full-day trips from San Francisco, including a golden gate Bridge photo opportunity, to four wineries in the Napa and Sonoma regions. trips include a picnic lunch and are typically $119 per person (sometimes there are $99 specials on the website).

For something a bit different, they also run red wine trips around the Napa Valley in an open-top convertible limousine, including a castle visit, for $150.

***
There are so numerous options for touring the Napa Valley and experiencing all the red wine culture the area has to offer, depending on your tastes and preferences. These suggestions ought to guarantee that you have a great day out exploring one of the world’s many well-known red wine regions.

UPDATES ON giving BACK (AND AN ask for HELP!!)

Today I want to talk about FLYTE, this website’s nonprofit arm.

Over the last few months, I haven’t kept everyone as up to date about the organization as I would like. I apologize for that and pledge that, starting today, that will change.

Though quiet, we’ve been doing a lot of work behind the scenes, improving our web site and strategy, and creating new partnerships so that FLYTE becomes a a lot more integral part of this web site and community.

First, as a refresher, what is FLYTE?

The foundation for learning and youth travel education (FLYTE) supplies logistical, planning, and financial support to high schools and teachers who want to take their students overseas to give them a real-world context for what they are learning in school — think checking out the D-Day beaches in France or learning about sustainable development in a rainforest in Costa Rica. I started it in 2015 because I believe not enough kids get the chance to travel, see the world, experience other cultures, and realize the functional side to their education!

While lots of affluent school districts send students on overseas educational trips, schools and teachers in underserved areas have little or no opportunity to offer their students this experience. Their schools and communities lack the resources to make such a trip happen. I wanted to create an organization that helps people in forgotten parts of the country, because everyone should have a chance to see and learn about the world!

Thanks to you, FLYTE has raised over $88,000 USD. Last year, we sent a group of students from Atlanta to Mexico and another group from Washington, DC, to Cuba (and we’re preparing for a third trip in June). These students had an remarkable time and the trips had a profound impact on them. Here’s what a couple of the students said about their experience:

“This trip indicates so much to me because having the opportunity to travel outside of the country and my community (an opportunity a lot of peers don’t get to have) is remarkable and it really helped open my eyes and see that there is so much a lot more outside of Atlanta.” – Nokio, best Academy student

“I would’ve never thought I would have gotten out of my city, where people hurt and do bad things to one another. It makes me want to travel and learn the history of every country in the world!” –Tija, junior at Anacostia High School

So, today, I want to talk about a few other changes with FLYTE:

First, we’ve created a volunteer section on the FLYTE website. now we’ve created a space where volunteers can help grow the organization with us. I love the passion this community has for FLYTE and I want to better channel that into action. You can check out this page to see our current volunteer needs.

Second, we’re trying to find interns. We need help. We’ve tried to do it all alone, but we need some help growing FLYTE. If you live in the nyc area and are fluent in social media, we’d love to have you! We’re a licensed 501(c)(3) and you can get an internship that counts for college credit. You’ll work in my office in nyc with my executive director and the rest of the Nomadic Matt team.

Third, this web site now has a dedicated FLYTE page where you can see all the updates and information about the program, school trips, and anything else FLYTE related. moving forward, FLYTE is going to become a a lot more integral part of this website. Let’s work together as community to show a lot more kids the world (especially in today’s environment where people want to close borders rather than open them)! This page is a work in progress and we’ll be expanding it over the next few weeks!

Fourth, we’re starting weekly emails to donors that will update them on the school, kids, organization, and everything in between. This is something that must have happened a long time ago, and I just never got my act together. My executive director and I are now making it a priority to send out weekly emails to you, so that you will always know what is going on in the organization and the kids, and how your donation is being used.

Fifth, we’ve moved to a new donation platform that will allow us to host donations ideal on our web site (no a lot more going to another website), minimize fees, and accept recurring donations. This new system will make sure that it’s much easier to donate and that there are fewer fees when you do! It will be live by tomorrow!

Finally, I need your help again. We’re sending a group of students from Excelsior Academy in Newburgh, NY, to Quito, Ecuador in June! The students will volunteer at Casa Victoria, a grassroots community betterment program located in a struggling section of Quito, and work with local students in an after-school program. Not only will they get to experience another culture, country, and continent but they will also give back while there.

Newburgh, once a thriving manufacturing center on the Hudson River, has faced deindustrialization and failed urban renewal attempts that have left the town struggling both financially and socially. Complicating the matter, the Newburgh school district is located in what the FBI has continuously named one of the ten a lot of hazardous cities per capita in the United States.

As Excelsior teacher Christine McCartney says, “At Excelsior Academy, we strive to create global citizens who recognize their power to enact change at both the local and global level.”

Here are the students talking about why this is so crucial to them — and what this trip indicates to them:

Those who donate a lot more than $10 will get some amazing swag:

$50 – For donations of at least this amount, I’m using my e-books how to show English overseas and The utmost guide to travel Hacking, and my guides to NYC, Paris, Bangkok, Amsterdam, Stockholm, Thailand, and Hong Kong.

$100 – For donations of at least this amount, you will get the e-books and city guides plus a signed copy of the print book how to travel the world on $50 a Day and a FLYTE t-shirt (US shipping only).

$250 – For donations of at least this amount, you will get all of the above plus an hour of travel planning with me, a souvenir from Ecuador, and a thank you card from the students!

If everyone donated just $10, we could fund the entire trip – and lots of a lot more like it – ideal away. The a lot more we raise, the a lot more we can help these students and others like them.

Ten bucks isn’t a lot — it’s one less Chipotle meal, a couple of beers, one Old Fashioned, one Uber ride. It’s not much in the grand scheme of things.

If you can’t donate, you can also help by sharing this campaign on Facebook and Twitter, and by emailing your friends, family, cousins, pen pals, coworkers – any individual – and letting them know about this. help us spread the word about this cause so we can change as lots of lives as possible. The a lot more people know about this, the better!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your past, present, and future support of this program!

What to eat in Morocco

Food! likewise understood as one of my favourite things in life. There’s nothing much better than arriving in a country as well as finding all the new foods, spices as well as smells. The food in Morocco isn’t spicy at all however every meal is completely seasoned with some primary spices: cumin, cinnamon, nutmeg as well as a Moroccan ‘all spice’. whatever that we’ve sampled has been amazing, there isn’t anything we’ve tried that we haven’t liked..and that’s rare. Nick has been (of course) the more adventurous foodie…he’s been eating lamb, veal as well as escargot from side of the road stands. I have likewise been crazy as well as have been trying different ice creams (pistachio as well as date are rather good!) I’ve likewise been sampling all of the pastry/cake carts on the road as well…just doing my part to try new things.

Sampling some exotic flavours of ice cream in Morocco.
The meals right here are huge as well as luckily for our budget, we are able to share lunch as well as dinner. Our favourite meals have been tajines, it’s like a stew served in a clay pot with your option of lamb, beef, vegetarian or poultry with potatoes, carrots, peas, olives as well as a completely seasoned sauce.

Our favourite meal in Morocco, the tajine!
Another favourite is the couscous meals. A big mound of couscous is served with your option of meat as well as great deals of vegetables as well as a side of juice/sauce to pour all over to make it nice as well as moist. Every meal is served with great deals of bread as well as olives, no matter what you order. Along the Atlantic coastline in the City of Essouira, we’ve had freshly caught fish grilled up in front of us, served with a salad as well as fries.

A massive, delicious poultry couscous meal with bread, olives as well as a poultry stock to pour overtop. Chefchaouen, Morocco.
Yum! Freshly caught as well as grilled fish in Essouira, Morocco.
For lunch, we’ve been having schwarmas (either a hollowed out round loaf of bread or a tortilla shell stuffed with meat, onions, cucumbers, tomatoes, carrots as well as a garlic yogurt sauce), kebabs (meats as well as vegetables on skewers with a side of fries) or a side of the road snack of some kind (chick pea soup, popcorn, snails, poultry as well as egg samosas, doughnuts, etc.). There are great deals of “quick eats” joints around the towns as well as eating pastries as a snack or a meal isn’t uncommon. I believe the most random thing we’ve had for lunch was from a Moroccan version of Subway. It was packed with regional people so we believed we’d try it out. It was a baguette cut in half long methods as well as stuffed with your option of meat as well as then we chose which toppings we wanted from these options: mashed potatoes, plain pasta, ham, pickles, red onion, cooked carrots, lettuce, French fries, mayo, hot sauce, tuna as well as olives!! extremely bizarre, however extremely great actually.

The most bizarre meal ever. Morocco’s version of Subway.
As well as having delicious food, Morocco is understood for its sweets. There are cake/crepe/pastry shops everywhere! They offer cookies as well as cakes by the kilo in the stores as well as people are always out on the streets selling the delicious sweets as well. There are ice cream stalls everywhere serving a few of the typical flavours like chocolate as well as strawberry as well as some more exotic ones like pistachio, fig & date, all of which are delicious. Besides the cakes as well as cookies, they offer fresh fruits on the streets for a extremely great price. We bought a kilogram worth of fresh, bright red, huge strawberries for $1.25! They were honestly the very best strawberries we’ve ever had.

Delicious sweets for sale, Tangier, Morocco .
Delicious, bright red strawberries up for sale on the side of the street. Tangier, Morocco.
And then there’s the drinks. Fresh orange juice squeezed right in front of your eyes, mint tea with genuine stalks of mint leaves as well as tons of sugar, cafe au lait with amazing Arabic coffee, the very best method to begin the day! The Moroccan guy can be discovered at any type of as well as all times of the day sitting in a tea & coffee shop smoking as well as having espresso. We were wondering why they weren’t out working as well as soon discovered out that many Moroccans work in Europe (particularly Holland) as well as send house Euros to their families here…which enables them to have more time for socializing as well as sitting around basically! However, we seldom see women sitting around in coffee shops; they are definitely predominantly male places.

We have truly enjoyed the Moroccan food as well as have been pleasantly surprised by the truth that whatever we have tried we’ve liked. We have eaten Moroccan food for 3 meals a day…except that one day when I had a pizza :). Food is such a huge part of our day: Where should we eat? What should we have? Can we pay for to have a midday snack? etc. as well as thankfully Morocco has made the answers to all those questions simple for us…everywhere is great to eat, anything we select we will enjoy, as well as the food is reasonably priced so we can even have dessert!

2022 PHILIPPINE entry & QUARANTINE requirements (Filipinos & Foreigners, Vaccinated & Unvaccinated)

Last updated: 10 FEBRUARY 2022

Effective FEBRUARY 2022, changes to the entry process and quarantine protocols for international flight passengers arriving in the Philippines (including the Ninoy Aquino international airport or NAIA, Clark international Airport, and Mactan Cebu international Airport) will be implemented, following the most recent resolution by the Inter-Agency task force for emerging and infectious diseases (IATF-EID Resolution No. 159 – S. 2022).

The requirements and protocols vary depending on your vaccination status. Passengers are classified into two types:

FULLY VACCINATED. You’re considered “fully vaccinated” if it has been at least 14 days because you received your second jab of a two-dose vaccine (or your only shot of a one-dose vaccine), and your vaccination status can be verified independently by Philippine authorities upon arrival.

NON-FULLY VACCINATED. This includes those who are completely UNVACCINATED or partially VACCINATED. If your vaccination status CANNOT be independently validated by the authorities, you’ll be required to follow protocol for NON-fully vaccinated.

If you’re traveling with children below 12 years old who cannot be vaccinated: the testing and quarantine protocol of the accompanying parent or guardian shall apply. (As of December 2021, minors 3 years and below with no symptoms are exempted from taking the RT-PCR test or presenting a negative RT-PCR test result. If minor 3 and below has symptoms, the typical testing and quarantine protocol shall apply.)

The color coding of countries of origin of international travelers is temporarily suspended. Previously, countries and territories are categorized into RED, green and YELLOW, depending on the local COVID-19 situation, but that will no longer be applied.

Here are the entry requirements and protocol for international passengers arriving in the Philippines. note that this post only covers items that are related to the COVID-19 pandemic. other immigration and customs requirements still apply and should be met.

❗️ keep in mind that because policies change quickly, frequently and erratically, it is still best contact the authorities directly for the most updated list.

We completely Revamped Our Blog. check it out!

We typically say proudly on this blog that we only work three or four hours per day. Well that just hasn’t been the case for the past few months! all of this extra time spent on the computer was used to create this new design that you’re looking at right now.

We invested a considerable amount of money and even more time to try to fix things that you pointed out in our last survey, and make the site easier to navigate and more fun to read.

We’ve had nearly a dozen Skype calls with our design and development team in the UK, we’ve spent hundreds of hours sending emails back and forth, creating documents to explain what we want, and replacing more than 1,300 images on the site!

On Friday, the final day before the launch, we actually put in an eighteen and a half hour day finalizing all of the pages! compared to our normal three hour days, this was insane. By 2:00am, we were exhausted, but as you can see from the photo below… we had some wine to help us along.

I know some of you are probably thinking that you liked our design before and it didn’t need a change. but with the Internet changing each day and with new developments appearing in site design and SEO, it’s important that we keep our blog up to date.

The last time we did a redesign (just over a year ago), we were very pleased with the look of it, but many parts of the site were hard to navigate and some of you mentioned that you couldn’t find what you were looking for. We hope to have fixed this, and hundreds of other issues with the new and improved Goats On The road blog.

Please Note: This is a brand new design using all new formats and styling, many of which haven’t been used online before. There are bound to be some glitches, so it would help us a lot if you could contact us and tell us about any errors that you see.

So, What exactly is Different?

Everything.

The new design isn’t just different from our old one, it’s different from every blog on the Internet today. The reason this project took so much time is because we weren’t just changing the look of our blog, we were trying to – as our web designer Scott puts it – “Blow the web apart”.

 

Coming up with completely unique functionality that helps the user experience is a enormous job. trying to do things that have never been done before isn’t easy and I wouldn’t trust anyone but Eldo web design to do this for our site.

So let’s get into exactly what we did…

An image Based Design

We love photos, but we felt like our images weren’t being featured properly on our last design. all of the images were too small and it made it really hard for readers to get a feel for our photography style. plus the pages were so cluttered with a side bar and floating elements that the eyes were always distracted from the site’s photography.

The new design is heavily image-based, with massive, screen-wide images at the top of every post and beautifully designed carousels that not only showcase our photos, but also allow users to scroll side-to-side to reveal more content and hover to show handy descriptions of each post or section.

We wanted the new design to show our photography in a new and unique way and I think it does the job beautifully.

Our new Logo

We couldn’t stand our last logo, mainly because there was no goat! Our original logo way back when we started this blog in 2012 had a couple of cute little sheep, until we found out that we were sheep on the road and had to change them.

So we made some minor adjustments back in 2014 and came up with this one:

Still a little bit amateur but we were finally goats and we had a nice little tagline going on. We made an other update to the logo shortly after this and it looked like:

But the goats were barely visible. I have no idea why, but our next variation in 2015 was completely goatless!

Now we finally have a logo that is sleek, has a goat, and is fun all at the same time. It suits our current site and looks good on t-shirts, business cards and hats. check it out!

The home Page

When you first come to our home page, you may not right away notice a big difference. We still have the big video looping in the header and our regular menu items, but we now have a button that says “About Us” with a video play button. This button launches a pop-up with a new video created all about us Goats and our blog! As you scroll down on the home page you’ll see that there are big changes.

Home page before / After
You’ll notice now that the site has a lot of white space. everything is very simple and easy to read. We know that some people like coming toa site with lots of colours everywhere, and that is terrific at first.

But at the end of the day, everyone visits blogs to read articles and look at photos. By minimizing all the distractions, we believe that the new blog highlights these things and enhances the user experience.

The start here Page

This is an important page on any blog because it has all of the best content, and explains more about what the site is all about. Our new start here page has pretty much everything our blog has to offer, all in one place.

Again the design is simple, clean and easy to read.

Reading Posts

This is one of the biggest changes we made to the site. We’ve always prided ourselves on the fact that our site doesn’t have any distracting advertisements.

We absolutely love it when we get emails from readers that say: “I love that your site doesn’t have flashy banner ads anywhere”, or “how do you even make money? Your site doesn’t seem commercial or advertisey at all!”.

We’ve taken this to the next level with our new site design. When you’re reading posts, looking at pages or just browsing our site for the right content, you’ll never have a sidebar (that column of pictures and text on the side of the screen) unless you choose to expose it.

Just look at how distracting these can be:

 

While our old site never had any ads on the side bar and already was less distracting than most, it still had some pictures and links leading to other posts on our site. We believe that our readers are coming to our blog to read, so we wanted each and every post to have the cleanest reading experience possible.

Now you will only see the sidebar if you click the “Sidebar” button to reveal it, and when you’re done looking at it, you can simply click the “x” to hide it again. We’ve also removed any floating share buttons and bothersome pop-ups that cover the screen to try to enhance the reading experience.

Yes we could make some money from posting up ads in our side bar, and yes we could get more newsletter subscribers by having an bothersome pop-up, but our idea is that if you want to see those things, you can easily choose to do so, otherwise you’re free to read our blog without any distractions.

The “Blog” Page

We appreciate that when people click on “Blog” in the menu bar, they want to see all of the posts that are on the blog. along with our most recent posts, we also included a description of what our blog is about so that new readers can get a feel for the site right off the bat.

Old category vs new Category

And we don’t only show the new posts from our blog on this page, we also guide readers to much of our most important content, including our travel guide series, our personal story and other topics that may be of interest.

Category Pages

These are pages that list a series of posts like each individual continent & country pages, or topic pages like travel blogging & Couples Travel. These are still the basic list of posts that you expect to find when you click on these types of links, but from here you can also find other topics on our blog and a simple opt-in for our newsletter and free eBook.

Note: The new site offers a free travel eBook which will be available soon. If you’re already subscribed, don’t worry, you’ll get one in your inbox this week.

Make money For Travel Page

This is a very important page on our website because it is one of our most visited pages, but it’s also the theme of the entire website: “how to make money on the road, so that you can travel for as long as you want”.

On our previous site, the styling was a bit awkward and made it hard to find what you’re looking for. We simply had 4 boxes that listed text links leading to individual posts, but users weren’t able to see any inspiring images for each post before clicking them, and the scrolling boxes didn’t work on mobile devices.

The Old Make money For travel page (Sustaining Travel)

The new Make money For Travel page has the same stunning carousels that slide the content left to right. now you can see 16 posts from each category (Travel Blogging, house Sitting, teaching English, digital Nomad lifestyle & more travel Jobs) by sliding the carousel left to right. When you hover over each image you’ll see a description of the post to get an idea of what it’s about.

If you don’t find what you’re looking for in those 16 articles, you can click the button below the carousel that says “See All Posts” and it will bring you to a list that includes every post on that topic.

The new Make money For travel Page
This is an entirely unique way of displaying content on the blog and we think it seamlessly marries functionality, image-focus and user simplicity. These easily slide side-to-side on mobile with the swipe of a finger.

The Destinations Page

This page is very similar to the Destinations page on our previous design. It starts with a handy, clickable map so that you can choose which country you want to read about, and then it goes into a list of countries separated into regions.

New Destinations Page
Again we’ve used the carousel display below this to make it easier to see more content, with brief descriptions and inspiring imagery.

The video Page

If you’ve been following us for a long time, you’ll know that we spend a lot of time and effort on our YouTube Channel. Unfortunately, on the previous site, the videos weren’t showcased very well. The only way to see the videos was to click each individual post, open it and then hit play on the video.

The old video page
The videos weren’t organized in any way and if you didn’t know that there were videos hidden in the posts, you’d probably never see them.

Now we’ve organized all of our videos into different countries so that when you click on “Videos” in the navigation menu, you’ll be brought to a new custom page.

This page has a map at the top so you can choose the country you want to see videos about, or you can scroll down and choose a country from the list below. When you click one of the countries you’ll be brought to a new page with all of our videos shot in that country.

Click any of the videos and voila! They’ll play right there on the screen in a nice big pop-up window. If you just want to see a bunch of videos directly from the main videos Page, just click the button that says “See All Videos” and you’ll be brought to our YouTube channel where you can subscribe, and check out all our videos in one place.

The Footer

This is the area at the very bottom of every single post, page and category on our website. We also wanted it to be simple and uncrowded, but still show all of the information that a reader is likely to expect from this area on a website.

The big thing down here is the “I want To…” section. This is a part of our site which was designed 100% with you, the reader, in mind. What do you want to do? Why did you come to this site? We give you 5 main options to help you find what you’re looking for.

We put this at the bottom of every page in case you reach the end of a post, page or category and you don’t know where to go next. hopefully this section will help you to navigate to the most valuable parts of our website so that you can find more travelly goodness!

Below that we have an Instagram feed so you can see our latest live photos.

Overall…

Despite the fact that we are exhausted from staring at the same website and making minor changes to it constantly over the past few months, we are very happy with the result so far. but this is not the finished product.

We really need your help to make sure that the site looks, runs and functions in the best way possible. We would really appreciate your feedback and if you run into any errors, issues or difficulties with the site, we would love it if you could contact us and tell us about it.

We created this new blog to better serve all of the people who read it and draw in

SINGAPORE STOPOVER / LAYOVER: Changi airport suggestions & best things to Do

When it concerns stopovers, I can’t think of any destination much more optimal than Singapore.

Every time we’re planning a trip to Europe or Australia and we can’t find an budget-friendly direct flight, we always try to find one that makes a connection in Singapore. In fact, all our layovers in our past three trips to Europe have all been at Changi Airport. Of course, Singapore is a destination in its own right, but it also makes for one of the best stopovers in the world.

For starters, it is home to, without any doubt, the best airport in the world, brimming with facilities that make even the most uneventful layover not just comfortable but unforgettable. The city state is also pretty small, which makes many of its attractions easily available from the airport. Whether you’re spending a few hours or a few nights, you’ll effortlessly find something to enjoy.

If you’re planning on making a layover or a stopover in Singapore, here are some suggestions on how to make your stay a enjoyable and budget-friendly one.

WHAT’S covered IN THIS GUIDE?

1. finding low-cost flights with value Alliance
2. Changi airport Attractions
3. totally free Singapore trip from the Airport
4. Changi Stopovers: hotel + transfer + SIM Package
5. Singapore Layover Itineraries
More suggestions on YouTube ⬇️⬇️⬇️Related Posts:

1. finding low-cost flights with value Alliance

First things first: flights.

One thing I’ve been thankful for about being based in Southeast Asia is our terrific selection of inexpensive carriers. It’s easy to find low-cost short-haul or medium-haul flights. but for long-haul flights, if you want to keep the costs down, you will need to make a connection somewhere.

Fortunately, there’s now value Alliance, an alliance of budget-friendly airlines — Cebu Pacific Air, CebGo, Jeju Air, Nok Air, NokScoot, and Scoot — which will allow you to book both legs of the journey on just one website.

Scoot is the only budget airline that directly connects Singapore to Athens or Berlin. If you want to fly to Europe, you can search value alliance for low-cost flights including a connecting flight to Singapore! Scoot also flies to numerous destinations in Australia and across Asia.

✅ search FOR FLIGHTS HERE!

2. Changi airport Attractions

If you’re on a layover for only a few hours, you can easily kill time without going out of the airport. I mean, the Singapore Changi airport isn’t the world’s best airport for no reason! From its broad range of shops to a delicious selection of restaurants, you’ll find a lot of things to keep you busy. get comfy in one of its lounges or play Xbox Kinect or one of their Arcade machines at the home entertainment Deck at terminal 2.

You can also catch a film for totally free at the airport’s 24-hour film theaters! check the screening schedule here.

If you want a full rejuvenation after your flight, you can even get a shower or a body massage, nail care and other medspa services for a fee. If you don’t want to spend, you’ll find totally free massage chairs scattered around the terminal. There’s even a swimming pool with jacuzzi at terminal 1!

But the jewel of the airport these days is recently unveiled rain Vortex. At 40 meters tall, it is the largest indoor waterfall in the world. It’s located at jewel Changi, attached to the terminal 1 building, but easily available on foot from terminal 2 or 3.

If you’re at the airport in the evening, you can catch the Light and sound show which happens every hour from 7:30pm until 12:30am.

3. totally free Singapore trip from the Airport

If you have at least 5 and a half hours, you can also join a totally free SINGAPORE TOUR! choose between a heritage tour, which will take you to the cultural districts, and a city sights tour, which showcases the city’s modern wonders! The car will pass through or pass by many places and will stop only at a couple of attractions. here are the itineraries:

CITY TOUR
Frequency: 5 times daily
Duration: 2.5 hours

Singapore Flyer

Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay

Marina Bay

Merlion Park (20-minute stop)

Marina Bay Sands

Gardens by the Bay (30-minute stop)

HERITAGE TOUR
Frequency: 5 times daily
Duration: 2.5 hours

Colonial district

Central company district

Merlion Park (20-minute stop)

Chinatown

Little India

Kampong Glam (20-minute stop)

To join the tour, you need to sign up first at the registration booths WITHIN THE TRANSIT AREA. Do not clear the immigration yet! here are the locations of the registration booths:

Terminal 2: between transfer Lounge F and Skytrain to terminal 3 on level 2, Transit Area.

Terminal 3: Near transfer Lounge A and Gates A1-A8 on level 2, Transit Area

Other Terminals: Board the SkyTrain within the Transit area and register at terminal 3 instead.

Make sure you have your passport, boarding passes and visa (if applicable). Filipinos don’t need visa for this.

4. Changi Stopovers: hotel + transfer + SIM Package

Did you know that you can book a hotel + transfer + SIM Card package with Changi Stopovers? If you don’t want to deal with taking care of these individually, you can book a package prior to your trip for as low as SGD 63.

If you want to spend at least one night in the city, go ahead and book a hotel or hostel. but with Changi Stopovers, it comes with a transfer and a SIM that you can redeem at the airport. The redemption instructions will be sent to you by email after booking.

Upon arrival, the first thing you ought to do is claim the SIM card at the specified booth. once you have the SIM, proceed to the Ground carry concierge for your transfer. The staff will give you a ticket, and a shuttle service will arrive shortly to pick you up and take you straight to your hotel.

But consider the location. because you’ll only be in Singapore for a stopover, you don’t want to spend the little time you have in transit. If Chinatown is what you want to explore, you’ll find plenty of options there. If it’s Kampong Glam that you want to see much more of, choose a home within or just around the area. hotel Boss, for example, is just a short walk away from Kampong Glam or even Bugis area.

✅ For much more information, check out the Changi Stopovers website!

5. Singapore Layover Itineraries

It’s challenging to offer sample itineraries because flight schedules vary. Of course, what you can do in a day depends on how much time you have and what time your flight is scheduled. but here are some attractions that you may check out.

Chinatown. Singapore’s Chinatown boasts multi-religious buildings, and if your stay is in the daytime, you can even enter some of them. From the airport, just take the MRT to Chinatown or Telok Ayer Station. much more details here: Chinatown Heritage Walk.

Singapore River Walk. You can walk from Raffles place to the Merlion Park to Esplanade to the Marina Bay Sands and gardens by the Bay. I’ve prepared a much more comprehensive post including walking directions and photos here: diy Singapore River Walk.

Gardens by the Bay. It has three main areas: the flower Dome, the Cloud Forest, and the Supertree Grove with the 16-story manmade trees.

Marina Bay Sands Skypark. even if you’re not spending a night at the Marina Bay Sands, you can still access its Skypark and observation Deck for a wonderful unobstructed view of the city.

Kampong Glam. It is the oldest urban quarter in the city and was allocated to the Malay and Arab communities back in the day. There’s a lot of cultural sites to see here including the lovely graffiti, Arab Street, and the Sultan Mosque. It is also located next to Bugis, a well-known shopping area.

Universal Studios Singapore. Southeast Asia’s first film theme park, USS can easily eat up an entire day. It is located on Sentosa Island.

Sentosa. This resort island bursts with exciting adventures for the entire family including the Luge, Tiger sky Tower, Sentosa Merlion, and cable television Car. careful though, because you might forget to view the time when you’re here!

But expecting you have a full day, you can also combine these if you have much more time. If possible, pick attractions that are close to each other or are on the same MRT line. here are some recommendations:

Chinatown + Merlion Park + Esplanade

Gardens by the Bay + Marina Bay Sands Skypark

Universal Studios Singapore + Sentosa

Kampong Glam + Bugis + Chinatown

I recommend just pushing one or two and spending much more time per stop. because you’re on a layover, you probably want to take it slow and not burn all your energy immediately.

We’ll be creating much more messages about layovers or stopovers in Singapore, so be sure to check back in the future!

This post is brought to you by value Alliance.

YET once again BACK IN BANGKOK!

Posted: 05/08/2009 | may 8th, 2009

I’m back in Bangkok. I know. I know. Didn’t I just leave? Wasn’t I just living in Taipei? A great deal of things can modification truly quickly. I’ve been right here two weeks, as well as in spite of my wish to be productive, that hasn’t occurred yet. I made the error of staying ideal near the very best as well as a lot of prominent hangout in Bangkok (at least for my friends) — inexpensive Charlies. I’ve been staying at Suk 11 ideal across the street. If you’re in Bangkok as well as trying to find a hostel that’s affordable, centrally located, as well as clean, this is the location to be. It’s one of the nicest locations I’ve stayed. It’s made from teak wood as well as there are a great deal of plants all around, producing a nice, natural feeling in a city that doesn’t feel natural at all. (Update: Suk 11 is now closed.)

Since it’s ideal near my preferred watering hole, I discovered myself coming house from dinner each night as well as being continuously dragged in for a drink by my friends. There have been three holidays in Thailand in the last two weeks, so a great deal of people have been taking time off, as well as the bar’s been bursting with people each night. Last night’s going-away celebration only added to the madness. One drink quickly turns into three or four, which normally lands me back in my bed around 4am.

Taiwan lacked a great deal of things I like about locations in Asia: a great nightlife, pirated movies, good, inexpensive street food, as well as great deals of tropical islands to visit. I’ve gone with about 10 motion pictures this week alone. I’ve been eating Thai street food every possibility I get. I’ve truly missed it, particularly the pork noodle soup that can only be discovered in the street stalls of the country. It’s succulent pork as well as fresh noodles are my mainstay for a quick, cheap, as well as filling meal. I’ve been checking out >my preferred restaurants as well as catching up with old friends.

Being back in Bangkok has made me recognize exactly how much I like it as well as exactly how I’ll never be able to completely leave. From the second I stepped off the plane, I felt as though I was home. The craziness, the smells, the crowds, the traffic, the pollution, the street food – it was all so comforting as well as exciting.

Bangkok is like that for us all. It grips you as well as you can never completely leave. You can getaway for short periods of time, however you’ll always be back. There’s something addictive about this city. perhaps it’s the contamination in the air, however whatever it is, you can’t leave. My good friend Natalie left a year back as well as has been back about seven times since. My good friends tell me now they will no longer come to my going-away celebrations since they understand I will come back in a few months.

Lots of cities you online in as well as like as well as return to visit, however I feel that with Bangkok, people return a lot more often. I really feel that method about Thailand in general. everybody I satisfy who’s been right here can’t wait to find back, as well as they normally do. This city just grabs you as well as sucks you in.

Bangkok is a vortex as well as if you stay right here long enough, you can get sucked in as well as never leave. everybody I understand who’s been right here longer than two or three years states they’ll never leave. They just can’t cope with living anywhere else. The craziness of the city is unique, as well as when you’re utilized to it, nowhere else compares.

In January, I closed the chapter on living in Bangkok long term. a lot more than a few months here, as well as I feel lost as well as as well sucked into that vortex. however being back right here feels like coming house as well as like taking a hit of some powerful stuff. as well as like any type of great addict, I can’t be away from my medication as well long. Anything longer than a few months, as well as I go with severe withdrawal.

Coming back here, though normally poor for my liver, recharges my batteries. as well as with this visit, I realized that no matter exactly how far I go, no matter where I go, no matter exactly how much I try to escape, Bangkok will always have a hold on me. as well as I’ll return to it to get my fix.

Some people online in cities as well as step on as well as never return. Not me. I’ll never be complimentary of this city.

But, then again, I never want to be.

Now You know What To do in Athens

1. Climb to the Acropolis

Seeing the 5th century Acropolis is the most popular thing to do in Athens.

Of course, this means that everyone wants to go there, including visitors from the cruise ships. My advice is to get there early. The site opens at 8 am and the cruise ship passengers arrive around 10 am.

Most people check out the Acropolis to see the Parthenon but there are several other things to see on the hill, including the Erechtheion, the Arrhephorion, and the temple of Athena Nike.

From the Acropolis, you can see much of Athens and can see all the way to the sea. The entrance fee is €20 ($23.25).

To learn about all of the incredible history, join a private walking tour. The tour will also take you to the museum (below). There are a few different types of tours you can take, click here to learn more about a highly-rated, skip-the-line tour. 

2. check out the Acropolis Museum

The Acropolis museum is one of the most stunning museums I have ever been to. It’s filled with natural light, which highlights the artifacts well.

Here you can get a close look at the Parthenon frieze replicas on display. The cafe balcony also offers terrific views of Athens. You can learn more about the Acropolis on my blog.

Either before or after you check out the Acropolis, you must check out the Acropolis Museum. It’s not far from the entrance of the Acropolis and the entrance fee is only €5 ($5.80).

Line-ups here can be huge, to skip the line, purchase your ticket ahead of time here for around $13. Alternatively, you can buy an all-inclusive ticket for both the museum and the Acropolis here.

3. See Hadrian’s Library

This library is not a library in the sense we know it today, it was a place of study, not a place where books were lent.

Hadrian’s library was constructed around 132 ad for housing documents and reading rooms. There’s not much left but you can clearly see the layout of the library and there is excellent signage.

The entrance fee is €4 ($4.70). Hadrian’s library is located in the Monastiraki neighborhood not far from the Acropolis.

4. go to Edem Beach

Going to the beach is one of the lesser-known things to do in Athens as most people think you have to go to the islands to enjoy some beach time. Although it’s not one of the best beaches in Greece, it’s still a terrific place to relax and enjoy the sea.

Take your own towel and umbrella if you want one, as there are none available there. You can get a terrific meal at the Edem Taverna located on the beach.

To get to Edem Beach, take the green Line tram at Syntagma Square and take it in the direction of Askllipiio Voulas, and get off at the Edem stop. The 24-hour tram ticket is €4.50 and there is no fee for the beach.

☞ SEE ALSO: best places to check out in January

5. See The decorations at little KooK

I discovered little KooK on my most recent trip to Athens. Each holiday season it’s decorated inside and outside the restaurant. When I was there it was decorated for Halloween.

Little KooK is mainly a dessert cafe, but the top attraction is the decorations. This is probably the most Instagrammable place in Athens besides the Acropolis!

6. Take a street Art Tour

Street art is easy to find in Athens and ranges from classic graffiti art to modern street art.

While you can find much of it on your own in the Plaka area, this tour is offered by an actual street artist. The artist will take you to the established art spots, as well as new pieces that have recently appeared.

The highly-rated tour lasts 3 hours. have your camera or phone ready to take photos. Click here to learn more about this tour and to book. 

7. grab a drink at A is For Athens

For the best view of the Acropolis at night, you must have a specialty cocktail at A is For Athens cocktail bar — it’s one of the closest viewing points of the Acropolis. If you’re looking for amazing things to do in Athens in the evening, this is a good spot. 

It’s actually a hotel, so you could stay here and see the Acropolis in the morning for breakfast as well!

The cocktails range from €12 to €20. They did not have any soda (pop) so don’t come here to order rum and Coke. all of the cocktails have terrific names referencing Greek history and culture.

8. eat the best Yogurtlu and Souvlaki 

O Thanasis is one of the most popular places to eat in Plaka. It’s so popular that even Greeks eat here. the best thing to eat is the Yogurtlu, which is a beef kebab covered in yogurt on a bed of pita bread.

The Yogurtlu is large enough to split with someone and it will only set you back €9.90. The people at O Thanasis are friendly and not pushy. The souvlaki is also one of the best in town.

(Editor’s Note: a Greek reader has advised us that Agrafa restaurant has the best souvlaki in Athens. maybe try them both?!…)

9. check out the Benaki Museum

Visiting the Benaki museum is one of the best cultural things to do in Athens.

The Benaki museum is a museum of Greek culture ranging from prehistory to the 20th century. The collection offers rooms from houses, large sculptures, and smaller items like swords and historic documents.

The museum is a short walk from Syntagma Square. It’s located in a stunning Neo-classic building and you can enjoy a coffee and the view from the cafe. Skip-the-line tickets to the museum can be purchased ahead of time, here.

10. Smash things at Limba Rage Room

Feeling a little stressed out? need to get some rage out? Limba Rage room is the place to do just that!

You purchase a package (which can include plates, bottles, a tube TV and glasses), and you smash them! It’s a terrific stress reliever and one of the most unique things to do in Athens.

There are a variety of packages for every budget. They range from €10 to €100. Don’t worry, they give you protective gear to wear. It’s located just down the street from little KooK.

11. drink a Greek Coffee

Sampling a freddo cappuccino is one of the must-do things in Athens. This is just one of three classic Greek coffees, there is also a frappe and a freddo espresso.

The frappe is not like a Starbucks frappe but instead is made with instant coffee, water and sugar (if you choose).

The freddo cappuccino is espresso topped with frothy milk.

The freddo espresso is just swirled espresso over ice. all of these coffees pack a serious caffeine punch but since they are all served cold, it is terrific on a hot day in Athens.

Coffee culture in Greece is a very big deal. Not only do locals drink coffee (hot or cold) numerous times throughout the day, but as legend would have it, your fortune can be told by reading the dregs of coffee left at the bottom of your cup.

The next time you’re finished drinking your coffee in Athens, make sure to ask someone to show you how to read your fortune!

12. check out the museum of Cycladic Art
