歐洲自由行│土耳其自助9日│路線規劃要這樣│ Travel│Backpack in Turkey│9-day Planning

通常自助旅行都從哪裡開始呢?海島?歐洲?看極光?

Backpacking? Where to start? Island vacation? Europe? Catch the aurora?

讓我們腳踏實地,從搞清楚有幾天假開始.這次年假+週末+請假,2/13-2/23請三天假湊得11日(謝謝老闆).因為遇到過年期間機票很貴,所以請三天假提早飛出去,後來發現請那三天假扣的錢和省下的機票錢差不多,仍積極正向告訴自己賺到三天,雖然省錢轉機超花時間,那…還是先別管到底賺到什麼好了…

Backpacking sounds fascinating but how do you start planning if you have no experience yet? Here are some steps for you to follow:

How many days can you travel? When are those days?

Take out your calendar, if you have a sedentary life style, always try to maximize the vacation with national holidays!

For example, Christmas for western cultures, Easter for Americans, Muslim New Year, Chinese New Year. However, you have to plan earlier, perhaps 6-8 months earlier, because everyone else in your country has the same holidays.

Flight tickets will MUST be more expensive. To save money, you can 1) book the tickets as earlier as possible (10-12 months prior)); or 2) transit! Find out where the regional flight  hub is. Bigger traffic airports, higher chances to have better flight offers, i.e., London, Frankfurt, Shanghai…etc. Notice that it will takes more time.

去程:台灣-香港(轉)-莫斯科(轉)-土耳其伊斯坦堡
回程:奧地利維也納-莫斯科(轉)-香港(轉)-台灣!

Pick a city! What kind of vacation do you fancy for?

同前一篇(旅行,總費用,土耳其自助9日)我的規劃程序通常是:決定日期> 挑國家/進出機場> 買機票> 排地點順序與天數> 訂住宿> 排細部行程.走訪的土耳其三城市是:伊斯坦堡、卡帕多奇雅(在內夫謝爾Nevşehir)、棉堡(在丹尼斯利Denizli),加上奧地利的維也納,去土耳其是旅行、去維也納找我的朋友們!

As the former article “ Backpacking in Turkey│9-day Expense “,  the flow usually goes like: when? > how much budget > which country? > Buy flight tickets > how many days in each city > book a place to stay > daily schedules.

This time I visit: Istanbul, Cappadocia (Nevşehir), Pammukale(Denizli), and then plus Vienna because I want to visit my friends there.

飛行進出地點決定以後,就可以訂機票囉!直飛or轉轉轉機,就看你想省時間or省錢,兩個都省到當然是最好啦!但有些事是可遇不可求,祝大家幸運囉!本次這樣買機票,原因很單純,選好日期、設好可忍受的飛行總時數上限,skyscanner列出的最便宜組合我就買了.台灣-香港這段分開買(請看旅行,總費用,土耳其自助9日國際機票費用明細)是因為:
1) 比台灣-土耳其便宜(購票時間點是2014年10月初)
2) 有飛台灣-土耳其的航空公司沒有我想搭的

Once you decide the which city to go first, then you can start to book flight tickets or arrange other ways to arrive. Usually you have to pick either from time or money, but sometime if you are lucky or plan 10-12 months ago, then you can save both time and money.

Tool I use for tickets: skyscanner, momondo, 布萊N機票達人(這個厲害了/ 2019年新增)

國際機票買好以後,接來就是決定各城市的順序和停留天數啦!懶人就上背包客棧看看大家都怎麼排,大概瞄過兩、三篇發現眾人有共同處就夠了,大家常走的通常表示點到點間的交通資訊很好找,最尷尬的是排好城市順序A-B-C也在各地訂房且不可退款,然後發現B-C沒有大眾交通且你無法自駕.以下是這次去的三個城市,路線是伊斯坦堡-卡帕-棉堡-伊斯坦堡,為什麼最後要回到伊斯坦堡,先保持神秘待會說.

土耳其的起點我選擇伊斯坦堡(下圖淺藍色點),為什麼?因為和另兩個城市比起來,伊斯坦堡的國際航班比較多…如果你期待高深的理由我很抱歉…下圖是實際的路線,事實證明花好幾個小時做的完美計劃敵不過一場大雪,所以當背包客也是可以訓練臨場應變力的!

cities in order

再複習一次重點,規劃程序可以是:決定日期> 挑國家/進出機場> 買機票> 排地點順序與天數> 訂住宿> 排細部行程.
這篇提了前四步驟,接下來訂住宿請參考下一篇吧!
