We all know that when travelling abroad, accommodation can be hard to find if you have never been to that particular country before and you are unsure which real estate or housing rental company you should trust. A lot of international students book themselves into a hotel or hostel before finding something more permanent in the area.
Staying in a hotel for this time can be very expensive, especially on a student budget, and staying in a hostel room can become impersonal and cramped. However, a great alternative lodging choice that is more suitable for these sort of situations, is to stay in private accommodation. Such places can be found on Wimdu.com, which has a great selection of apartments and rooms to rent out for short periods – whether it be for a vacation or a somewhere to crash in between housing contracts.
Wimdu has over 50,000 properties across more than 100 different countries around the world to rent out. Offering accommodation to suit any budget range, any style with any amenity – makes Wimdu a great company to use if you like to stay in accommodation which is a bit different to your average hotel room. There are many student friendly apartments currently listed on Wimdu.com. Shown below is a list of the apartments that we recommend for students who are looking to travel in a group to places of the likes of Hong Kong, New York and London.
Studying/ Visiting Asia
If you are studying in Asia, one of the places that you should have planned on your schedule is Hong Kong. We recommend staying in this property, if you are travelling with another person. Only $45 per night and being located near Jade Market and Kowloon Park, makes this a great place to stay in if you want to be near the center.
Studying/ Visiting NYC
If you are an international student who is studying in the USA, if you haven’t already been, then a trip to NYC should definitely be on the agenda. We recommend staying in an apartment like this offer here. Accommodating up to 5 people, located in Brooklyn and having a kitchen, makes this a perfect place to chill out with friends.
Studying/ Visiting London
London is a very popular choice to visit if you ever plan on travelling around Europe, or your host institution is there. This particular offer shown here, provides you with a kitchen, free internet/Wi-Fi and a TV, at only $23 per night. It is a superbly located studio apartment, accommodating up to 4 people, situated in the Fulham/Chelsea district.
