Funny Vacation Travel Complaints

There’s now queerer than folk- is an expression which roughly translates as -some people are just plain bonkers-, and this applies to people everywhere, including people who book up vacation rental homes and choose exotic locations as their vacation destinations. The following statements and complaints are all true.

One couple had been told by the vacation rental home owner that there is a water park nearby, but when they got there they realized they were over-dressed since they had not brought their swim wear. They made a complaint insisting that they should have been told that they need to bring their swimming costumes and towels to this vacation destination. Another couple, on booking a beachfront vacation rental villa then complained that the beach was too sandy, even though the owner of the vacation rental villa had written on his listings that it was located on a sandy beach.

One man complained to the owner of their holiday rental home that he bought some Ray Bans from a street peddler for $5 only to then find out that they were fake. Another couple complained when they booked a holiday rental home near the sea. They took their kids for a swim but they found the sea was not the way they imagined it to be – it had fish in it. So, they naturally went back to their beautiful holiday rental home and complained to the owner because he had not pre-warned them.

Some people also complain because they feel their vacation rental home is not stocked up enough, like the man who complained because there was no egg slicer, and some are just too -uninformed’ (to put it kindly) to work out how things are supposed to work, like the family who complained because there was no air conditioning on the (outdoor) patio of their vacation rental villa.

And there are even complaints of the more sensitive nature, like the man who went on a safari during his honeymoon, saw an aroused elephant, and then complained to his vacation home owner that he now felt inadequate and that his honeymoon was now ruined. Another couple put in a complaint because the lady became impregnated, something that she blamed on the fact their bedroom has a double bed and not a twin.

But the best of the lot has to be the couple who complained because it took them longer to fly back to England from their Jamaican holiday rental home than it did for their friends to fly back to America, and the woman who booked into a hotel, saw a -do not disturb- sign on the back of her door, on the inside, and thought that it meant for her to stay in the room. She should have booked a holiday rental home, not a hotel.

Kenya Safaris Verses Zanzibar Islands

Its become evident that when holiday seekers travel to Kenya for a safari experience they will eventually end up in Zanzibar to wrap up the Africa safari experience.

We all know a little too much about Kenya Safaris and the countries amazing diversity. Now lets just focus more on Zanzibar Island.

Zanzibar is considered to be part of the greater Tanzania, through ruled and governed by its own people.

The name Zanzibar is derived from a combination of two Arabic words, Zinj, meaning black, and barr being the Arabic word for land, resulting in the ancient title Land of the Blacks. As Zanzibar absorbed peoples from as far as the Orient and Iberia, Assyria and India, so the tapestry of its expression.

Zanzibar Island being the birthplace of Swahili, a lingua franca forged from global dialects, upon which legends were carried, trade routes opened and a Sultan Empire prospered there.

Zanzibar Island has a rich history with many invasions through the centuries. In the middle of the 19th century under the Omani Arabs the Island was the most important trading port on the East Africa, long before Kenya started safaris.

The strident laments and exultant overtures of Swahili taarab were born, their rhythms and melodies carried and honed between Zanzibar and the Arabian Gulf until they became the sounds of Zanzibars own musical narrative.

The architectural styles of the main town in Zanzibar Stone Town were born of the social convergence, while the tangled mass of stories, woven from centuries of lives lived, bestow a folklore and legacy that permeate life on the archipelago.

The Stone Town of Zanzibar is a fascinating warren of narrow streets, overhanging balconies and huge intricately carved doors. The bustling Suk where traders frantically bargain, is full of the pungent perfume of exotic spices.

The Old Stone town was declared a world heritage site by UNESCO for more than a decade now. Lamu Island in Kenya is also one of the islands that hold this prestigious title.

In order to protect the towns the governments has established the Stone town Conservation Authorities to enforce this.

Both Islands do really compete for the holiday makers looking for unexploited beaches and culture after Kenya safaris.

The stone town offers real value tours that start from the main city market, which was opened in 1904, you will get a comprehensive view of the Stone town architecture, its sand and stone ancient built houses, some of them have Arab inscriptions with carved doors with brass studs, carved balconies. You will also get the chance to see the old post office.

A good guide will then take you to the Anglican Cathedral of Christ, which was built by Bishop Steers in 1873 on the site of the Old slave market.

From here you will continue and tour the Sultans Palace Museum, House of Wonders (Beit-el-ajaib) built in 1883 and bombarded by British fleet in 1886, next to this you will see the Old Arab Fort, built in 1700.

Attract Customers To Your Hotel With The Perfect Advert

Getting people to come to your hotel should be easy, but with the recession it’s more difficult than it was in the past. There are still just as many hotels, but there aren’t as many people taking holidays because of the cost. More and more people who do travel are taking staycations, where they remain very close to home, sometimes even in their own town. These can be beautiful and they can be a lot of fun, but as a hotel owner you need to remind people of that. You also need to pull in the people who come from other areas so that they will stay at your hotel instead of going to another one. One of the ways that you can advertise your hotel and all that you have to offer is by offering great deals and great specials to customers who have stayed with you before. By contacting them and asking if there is anything that you can offer them they might be enticed to come back to your hotel, especially if they had a good experience with you the first time. You can also increase the efforts that you make where public relations are concerned. Inviting a travel writer to stay overnight for free is a good way to get a good review, and that’s advertising that’s virtually free.

When you advertise, you want to be sure to let people know what sets your hotel apart. If you offer a great amenity that’s not that common, or is common but you offer it at a great price, let people know. If you have won awards or if you pride yourself on something specific, make sure you tell people. They want to know why they should spend their holidays with you, and you’ll need to tell them so that they can make their choice. You won’t win over everyone that way, but you’ll get a lot more business with a good advert than you’ll get with one that you didn’t put that much time into, so make the effort to let your advert really stand out. It’ll be worth the time and the money that you put into it.
