SINGAPORE -- We start our worldwide tour with Drew Binsky a.k.a. The Hungry Partier in Singapore.
"Singapore is a small tropical island in Southeast Asia. It's actually a city and a country so I'm in Singapore, Singapore. Right now, I am in the downtown area so this is the city skyline, very urban, very modern.”
We caught up with Drew and asked -- "How can you afford to stay in all these exotic places?!”
Well. number one, avoid expensive hotels. Duh!
Drew suggests using a couple of sites, "The two best websites to find cheap accommodations are Airbnb and Couch Surfing. Airbnb is basically a website where people who have apartments or houses open up their doors and if they have an empty room, you'll pay them. It's often much cheaper than getting a hotel.”
"On the other hand Couch Surfing is free, completely free 100%. It's a nice community of people who also have open spots in their place, sometime a couch, hence the name Couch Surfing."
But wait a minute, sleeping in a stranger's house in a foreign country??? Kind of creepy, but Drew says he's actually had some pretty cool experiences, "I was in Myanmar...I was in a really small city and I went on couch surfing the day before and I found this guy. His name was Simon. He lived there. He was a local and he had this huge palace. It was great. I still talk to him all the time.”
Hey, who needs the Marina Bay Sands when you can get a whole palace to yourself, for free!
