Or at least, that it’s possible to cut down some costs of your much-needed “revenge travel.” How? By simply doing these two things: supporting local and booking staycation deals in and around Asia.

Staycation deals for safe travels amid the pandemic
1. Holiday Here by Wyndham Hotels & Resorts (Vietnam)
Wyndham has a number of properties in the Asia-Pacific region. Several of them offer the Holiday Here Sale. Book this and instantly get 25% off their best available rates. Plus, it will come with 3,000 Wyndham Rewards bonus points just for you! If you’re in Vietnam, which is among the safer places to travel locally right now, we definitely recommend going to the following properties to make the most of your Vietnamese staycation.
Dolce By Wyndham Hanoi Golden Lake boasts of its five-star amenities, including the 24K rooftop infinity pool overlooking Giang Vo Lake. But the cherry on the cake is really getting to stay in one of their over 300 rooms and suites, equipped with bathrooms furnished with gold-plated fixtures! It’s within minutes away from key Hanoi transport hubs and attractions, too.
The luxurious rooms at Wyndham Legend Halong Hotel are likewise not to be underestimated. Besides offering panoramic views of a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it takes pride in its thoughtful wellness facilities and dining destinations. For a taste of Europe, go to De Medici Restaurant. For Halong sunset vistas, look no further than the hotel’s Pool Bar!
Then, there’s Wyndham Grand Flamingo Dai Lai. This massive resort combines nature and luxury in a magical lakeside sanctuary filled with all kinds of entertainment! By that, I mean from a golf club and a tennis court, to free bike rentals and a virtual reality game park. If you’re looking to relax, though, then its pools amid verdant greenery are worth checking out as well.
Bonus: If you’re in New Zealand, you can enjoy the Holiday Here Sale at La Quinta By Wyndham Remarkables Park Queenstown. Close to Kawarau River, this hotel has non-smoking rooms and a relaxing location which gives you easy access to New Zealand’s top skiing and hiking destinations. With the country being another one of the safest travel destinations right now, who says you can’t embark on satisfying adventures at this time?
