From Canadian Pod Hotels to Lavish Sleeper Trains

 - Jul 30, 2017
As the July 2017 travel trends reveal, consumers are increasingly looking beyond basic hotels when they book accommodations abroad.

While hostels have always been a cheaper alternative to hotels, many consumers are looking for even more affordable options. For instance, Singapore's Met A Space Pods offer a number of luxury tech amenities inside tiny sleeping pods. Similarly, the Pangea Pod Hotel in Whistle provides ski buffs with a tiny, but affordable, place to spend the night.

Of course, not all alternative accommodations involve sleeping in tight quarters. As the July 2017 travel trends reveal, consumers are also looking to maximize their travel time by sleeping while en route to their next location. As a result, sleeper trains like the ones found on the Belmond Andean Explorer have become a popular option.
