Striking, Spirited and Eternally Sunny – Our New Guide to Sydney for Travelmob

‘Location, location, location’ – so goes the famous real estate mantra. If there were a travel-world equivalent, it would have to be ‘accommodation, accommodation, accommodation’. Where you choose to lay your head can make or break your trip. And with the spectrum of what constitutes accommodation widening year upon year, travellers are faced with more choice than ever.

At World Words, we have found ourselves writing about all kinds of places to stay, not just hotels, but also luxury villas, monasteries, farms and other unusual immersive accommodations. Recently, we have begun working with Travelmob, a vacation rental site whose goal is to help travellers live like locals, which means staying in local homes. We’ve been cooking up compelling landing page copy designed to give potential customers the lay of the land for destinations all across Asia and Australasia.

First up to get the World Words treatment is sunny Sydney. Scroll down to read more.

Singapore: A Region Guide for HomeAway

The world’s only island city-state is known both as a global commerce and financial centre and as a hard-to-beat holiday destination, offering a wealth of world-class cultural institutions, extraordinary architecture and never-ending nightlife – all boosted by a unfailingly warm, equatorial climate. For travellers, it’s an amazing city, which is why when HomeAway, the world’s largest holiday home (vacation rental) company with over a million global listings, asked us to write them a guide on the city, we jumped at the chance.

The first in a series of Asia-Pacific region guides for HomeAway – the rest, from Dubai to Hong Kong to Sydney, will go live during March – Singapore was published last week. And you can read our regional overview below.

It’s that time of year again; when the wrapping paper comes out of the drawer, the mince pies are bought in bulk and everyone starts getting a little sick of the John Lewis advert. But Christmas should be about more than gift-related chores, unavoidable shopping and depressed penguins. This is a time to have fun with friends and family.

That’s why, when approached by holiday rental company Discovery Holiday Homes to create a series of monthly blogs for their website, we decided to start by looking at the brilliant activities available during the festive season.

So here it is – our first ever blog for Discovery Holiday Homes, focusing on fun things to do around Christmas in South East England. It’s entitled, rather imaginatively, ‘Top 10 Festive Activities in the South East this Christmas’…
