5 Ways to Maximise a Weekend Trip

published March 22 2016

Life is always incredibly busy. Sometimes we need to take a break but rarely are we afforded the time or holiday leave to really explore and get to know a place. Here’s our tips how to minimise your leave and maximise your experience.


1. Choose a non-holiday weekend

Sure, no one ever gets the holiday allowance they deserve at work, but that’s what weekends are for. Though taking a weekend holiday that coincides with a public holiday may seem like a sensible choice, it ends up being a lot more expensive as everyone else has the same idea. Not only that, but if you choose a non-holiday weekend to travel, you’ll have less crowds to compete with, which means time saved on editing other tourists out of your beautiful photos!


2. Go off the beaten track

Choose a destination like Da Nang, Vietnam. In Da Nang, you can get a deep cultural experience over just two and a half days.  It’s time to get off the beaten path and really get to know this hidden gem.



3. Book activities

Book a travel package with Travolor and choose from a number of activities. We’ve got plenty of things to do in Da Nang including a half day tour of Hue, which takes in the Imperial City - home of many gorgeous palaces and temples. You’ll have time left to squeeze in another half day tour so head to My Son and get zen whilst taking in some ancient Hindu temples. Spend the next day touring the DMZ - the area that once divided South and North Vietnam and don’t forget to leave some time to sunbathe on Da Nang’s beautiful My Khe beach.



4. Relax

After a day of touring, be sure to chill on the beach and hit the town in the evenings. We’ve got you covered with a guide to Da Nang’s best bars. Relax with a drink on the Waterfront, or head to The Pine House for good music, drinks and tapas. For the more quirky traveller, hit The Minsk Bar near the beach, a bar decked out with Belarusian motorcycles.  



5. Let us do the booking

You tell us what you want to do, and we’ll make the booking for you. No more being glued to your phone or laptop - just tell us what you want to do. All you have to do is turn up.
