A Guide To Responsible Bargaining While Travelling

I am not a fan of bargaining at all and I probably have the worst poker face in the world. So, for me, haggling on holidays is nothing but stressful. However, I also don’t want to get ripped off when buying goods at a local market or negotiating prices for taxis or Tuk Tuks. In addition, paying much more than you technically should may lead to a culture of overcharging and inflation, which can throw a developing country’s economy out of balance. Nevertheless, even the poorest traveller is a rich person in the Third World and ruthless haggling is one of the greatest sins of irresponsible travellers.

Five Romantic Valentine’s Day Destinations

Valentine’s Day is approaching. So it’s the perfect time to take your Valentine on a romantic couple trip. Here are some of our most favourite romantic cities:

Rome: The home of great lovers like Romeo and Juliet is a champion of romance. Rent a vespa to explore the historic city, kiss at the Spanish Steps during sunset or make a wish in the Trevi Fountain.

London: Fall head over heels for each other while strolling through the neighbourhood of Notting Hill or checking out the antiques market at Portobello Road. Overlook the entirety of London in a private capsule at London Eye or walk down Broadway Market from London Fields to the Regent’s Canal in the heart of Hackney, East London.

Paris: Paris and romance goes together like champagne and oysters. Visit “Le Mur Des Je t’aime” (The Wall of Love), have “Petit Dejeuner” at a traditional Paris Cafe and climb to the top of the “Tour d’Eiffel” for breathtaking views.

Venice: This city tops the list of the world’s most romantic places. Kiss at Rialto Bridge, enjoy a romantic gondola ride or watch an opera at Teatro La Fenice.

Bangkok: You prefer a more exotic destination outside of Europe? Then Bangkok is you place to be. Dine at the Mandarin Oriental, watch the sunset on Moon Bar with a 360 degree cityscape panorama, have a glass of champagne at CRU Champagne Bar or go on a Chao Phraya River cruise.

Special tipp: Make your romantic memories last forever and surprise your Valentine with a FindPenguins Photo Book. How it works? Just track your romantic trip effortlessly and automatically with the FindPenguins App and create your professionally designed travel book in seconds.
