Business, Travel cum Leisure in Australia

Why you should combine your business trip with leisure

Big businessmen and company CEOs (Chief Executive Officers), area managers, etc., often have to travel oversea on their business trips. Most of the time, they leave their family behind, and the family members feels neglected and they often miss each other's presence. I believe such globe trotting businessmen and company top executives and managers should at least once in a while take their family along on their business trips. It is only fair. In other words, combine business with leisure, business for the businessmen, etc, leisure for their family, and where the businessmen can spare the time, even join their family for their leisure activities.

However, in such cases, hotels are not an option, for hotels do not normally accommodate large group and also do not have facilities for cooking, etc., something that the accompanying family members may want to do. For that, they will have to consider serviced apartments. Not only that, serviced apartments are generally cheaper than hotels.

What are serviced apartments?

A serviced apartment is a furnished, self-contained apartment meant for both long-term, medium-term and short-term stays. The serviced apartment offers amenities that hotels do not offer, such as a kitchen or kitchenette with cooking and eating utensils. Serviced apartments usually are less expensive than hotels and well suited for large group traveling together. There are even businessmen who rent serviced apartments for their extended stay in a place where they spend long period for their business. It makes more economic sense than staying in a hotel.

Serviced apartments in Australia

Just like anywhere else in the world, Australia too have serviced apartments for rent in addition to hotels. And Australia is an interesting country continent to visit, for where else can you find unique animals like kangaroos, koala (often wrongly referred to as koala bears), Platypus (Ornithorhynchus anatinus), etc. Plus there are many cities in Australia famous as cultural centers.
