If you are planning a backpacking trip to Australia, consider going to Adelaide. Situated in the furthest corner from anything deemed interesting in Australia by foreigners, Adelaide is great because there’s so much to do for an affordable price and you can splurge on a nice apartment hotel instead. Here are some tips.
1. Stay Off the Bars
Instead of heading out to snazzy bars for a drink, consider buying the bottles in a store or the supermarket and going to a little night-time picnic instead. Store-bought wine is cheaper than water in some cases.
2. Cook For Yourself
If you are staying at an apartment hotel like Avani Adelaide Residences, you can bring ingredients in from the farmers’ market and cook for yourself. It will be healthier and there’d be no wastage. Plus, you’ll save money.
3. Check Out Happy Hour
If you do head out to a bar or a café once in a while, consider going at happy hour which is usually 4 pm to 6 pm, and getting in on the deals.
4. Try the Free Stuff
There’s so much to do in Adelaide that is free. If you do a little research, you will find plenty of parks and entertainment hubs that don’t charge an entrance fee. Make the most of them.
5. Spend on a Good Room
When you do some splurging consider booking yourself into the best hotel in Adelaide that you would consider after some research. Having comfortable accommodation always makes the roughing it worthwhile.
