It’s nice to put up your feet for a few days in a new place and staying in a cottage, or a rental house is easier than it’s ever been. If you want to self-cater, smaller hotels and motels like Klipsan Beach Cottages are the way to go. If you’ve ever fantasized about living on the beach, or just another city in your home country, this is a great way to try it on and become a temporary resident. When you stay in the neighborhoods where the locals are you get a chance to experience the day-to-day pace of life in a new place. Walk to the corner café for breakfast. Admire the flowers blooming in the gardens along the way. Rent a bike and ride around the city. Explore the back streets. Many times this is the way you happen upon those hidden gems and meet the people who make travel so rewarding.
