KLOOK is our favourite one-stop shop for booking travel experiences online. It is a Hong Kong-based company that offers discounted travel activities across Asia and other countries. It connects travellers like us to the most exciting activities in just a few clicks at the best possible rates.
We discovered KLOOK while we were searching for private car charter in Pattaya during our cruise vacation. We were amazed at how fuss-free it is, the service is reliable and even cheaper than any other taxi companies I found on the internet.
We also used KLOOK to book for attractions in Pattaya such as Nong Nooch Tropical Garden (significantly cheaper than walk-in price!) and Underwater World Pattaya as well as local attractions such as Adventure Cove Waterpark, Universal Studios Singapore and KidZania.
Users can earn credits from their bookings and reviews. The credits can then be used to get discounts on their future purchases. Additionally, they can also earn rewards by inviting their friends via email or their unique codes.
KLOOK is my must-have app for booking attraction tickets and trips abroad. Before going on any trips, I always prepare the itinerary in advance and compare attraction prices from direct providers and KLOOK. And guess what? KLOOK always turns out to be the cheapest..
Trazy is our ‘new kids on the block’. Trazy’s name came about from a portmanteau of the words “travel” and “crazy” (yup, I love that!). Over the past five years, it has emerged as one of the most popular online sites for free independent travellers going to South Korea.
Interestingly, it features not only tours and activities in popular destinations such as Seoul, Busan and Jeju, but also in at least 48 other Korean cities and destinations. Recently, it has also expanded to Thailand by adding Bangkok, Pattaya, Phuket, Chiang Mai, Hua Hin, Krabi and Koh Samui.
South Korea is an increasingly popular destination for Singaporean travellers (thanks to K-Pop and Korean dramas). Many travellers often think that travelling here on a free-and-easy mode is difficult due to language barrier, especially in some rural areas. Therefore, we took up a package tour in 2016 on our first trip to South Korea.
But after the trip, we realized that it’s pretty convenient to travel around in Seoul because most of the signs are available in English, including public transportation. Moreover, with Trazy, it’s super easy to book the latest, newest and trendiest tours and activities in Korea.
Take for example, Nami Island – one of the popular K-drama shooting locations. It’s a very beautiful place to visit every season but it can be quite a hassle to travel there on your own. With Trazy’s Nami Island Shuttle Bus + Ticket Package, you can take a shuttle bus from Insadong, Namdaemun or Myeongdong (about 1.5 ~ 2 hours journey) to Nami Island conveniently. It includes round-trip ferry and admission tickets too!
Other must-visit destinations include Everland, Lotte World, Alpensia Ski Resort, Mount Seorak, Hello Kitty Island in Jeju, etc. Trazy definitely makes our travel to Korea easy, fuss-free and more affordable! 😀
