  1. 13 of the best Thai dishes

    posted by Guest Blogger - Matt Kepnes | 0 Comments


    Whenever I go back to visit Thailand I always go on an eating binge. I miss the zesty, spicy flavor Thai food has. No matter how good a restaurant I find in the States, it’s just never the same as eating the real thing. Living in Thailand spoiled me, so whenever I go back, these are my must-have dishes and the ones I think will give you a good overview of Thai cuisine.

    posted by Guest blogger - Ben Julius | 0 Comments


    Israel is a country generally associated with history and religion and there’s no doubt that this is what makes this small country, barely bigger than Wales or the US State of New Jersey, such a focal point on the radar of people around the world. What people often don’t know about Israel is that despite its size, it has incredible natural diversity – 60% of the land area is desert, whilst less than two hours away, the rolling green hills of the Galilee are home to among other things, a ski resort. Amid this diversity are some magnificent natural wonders. Here are five of the best.

    My favourite Manhattan hangouts


    New York City is a city of 10 million people and 100 million things to do. You can never be bored here. I’ve been living here on and off since 2010 (more, lately, now that I am no longer completely nomadic). Every time I walk down the street, I get drawn into the orbit of some new place to eat or drink. After having explored a lot of the city (but not all of it – nobody can do that), Hostelworld asked me to share some of my favourite spots and I was more than happy to do so.

    Why you should go to Ibiza but skip the clubs


    Ibiza may be an island known for its wild parties and clubs, but there is plenty of sightseeing to do if you look in the right places. After a trip to the Balearic island last April, I discovered ways to enjoy Ibiza during off season by turning an island getaway into a mini roadtrip.

    How to pack for a hostel


    Hostels are great for many reasons. One of these is price – they’re a lot cheaper than hotels. They don’t offer some of the perks a hotel offers though, so when packing for them you'll need to bring along a few more items and be mindful of how you pack them.

    Solo travel in a group…that works!


    Are you really travelling solo when you take a group tour? Some people say no but I say yes. At least, now I do. Until last month, I was an independent solo traveller. And yes, I was a bit of a snob about it. I thought independent travel was much, much better than going in a group.

    Getting off the beaten track in Southeast Asia


    In Southeast Asia, you’ll find a heavily trodden tourist trail with many things to do, places to see and parties to attend. Since the hippies first made their way through here in the 1970s, Southeast Asia has been a mecca for budget travellers and backpackers alike. With its warm weather, good food, gorgeous beaches, and relative cheapness, there’s a reason why the place has remained a travel mainstay for over 40 years.

    Istanbul - as seen by Instagram


    I have ventured into Istanbul three times - wandered numerous back alleys of the historic old district of Sultanahmet, broached the enigmatic Bosphorus Strait to cross continental divides from Europe to Asia and back again, visited famous landmarks more than once - and have never tired of any view.
