Discover Asia


Asia, largest of the continents, is like a beautiful patchwork quilt, each piece being important to the whole, yet an entity unto itself. A trip to this great continent of extremes is filled with wonderment and miraculous sights, such as the impressive Himalaya Mountains, with the highest peak in the world, Mount Everest, being 29,028 feet high; Tibet, the highest plateau on earth, and the breathtakingly splendid Taj Mahal of India, which, although built in 1630, still symbolizes the exotic aura that surrounds all of Asia.
The mysterious Orient entices the traveler to its fabulous ports of Hong Kong and Singapore, two of the most exciting cities anywhere; to picturesque Japan, which consists of four lovely islands, and is renowned for its unique culture, charming Kabuki theater, quaint architecture and graceful cherry trees; to Burma, called the “Golden,” because of the gold-encrusted pagodas that dot the landscape; and to intriguing Istanbul, formerly Constantinople, with its five hundred mosques and glamorous history of glory and accomplishments.
You are transported to the pages of the “Arabian Nights” when you enter Baghdad, capital of Iraq; in fact your entire vacation in Asia will be memorable for its fairy tale quality and the indescribable magic that envelops this continent.
Often considered the cradle of the human race because the Biblical story of the creation of mankind originated here, Asia was also the birthplace of the great religions, Christianity, Judaism, Mohammedanism and Buddhism, thus making it the site of pilgrimages made by thousands of people every year. The Bible relates the story of the continent from the Garden of Eden to Babylon and Nineveh, and although Asia has changed in this age of modern commercialism, it has never lost its singular appeal.

Introducing IWBmob – a New Mobile Booking Concept

Our new mobile website design is here.

We recently announced the introduction of IWB’S new mobile website, dubbed IWBmob. The first phase of this re-branding has just been released. It is a mobile-first design. This means that your profile page, and the entire booking process, has been redesigned. And it’s nothing short of revolutionary. Our new design features leading edge mobile aesthetics, and an ultra-responsive, streamlined user experience. For users of our new booking engine, the experience will surpass almost any modern booking site available today.

What does mobile-first mean?

Mobile-first means that our site will respond flexibly to all types of computers and devices, with an emphasis on mobile users. After all, more than 25% of worldwide travel bookings are made on mobile devices. And, mobile bookings are increasing at a rate of 20% or more each year in some countries. But, this also means that our website, and your property information, will be equally beautiful and functional on all computers. In the coming weeks, additional phases of our IWBmob re-branding will be visible across our entire website.

One thing to consider when selecting your primary booking engine is this. Have you gone through the booking process on multiple different mobile devices such as an iPhone, an Android phone, and a tablet?  Are the email confirmations that your guests receive equally mobile-friendly? Instant World Booking has this all covered for you.

We invite you to check out your new profile pages (including up to 15 translated pages for each property that we’ve always offered). We think you’ll agree that it works better on mobile devices, and is more straightforward and easy for users, than most other booking sites.

Here are some of best profiles we’ve seen. We recommend you check them out for ideas. Remember, add your best photos!

Hotel Convento Santa Catalina, Guatemala
Wander Inn Bunbury, Australia
Amigos Hostel Cozumel, Mexico
Bondalem Beach Club, Indonesia
New Ostel Florence, Italy
Nanu Guesthouse, South Korea

As an added bonus, we will soon introduce some innovative methods of integrating your IWB experience with Facebook and other social media. These are brand new innovations that are currently not used by any other booking service. Look for future announcements to learn how to take advantage of these innovations.

Nuestro nuevo diseño de sitio web para móviles está aquí.

Recientemente anunciamos la introducción del nuevo sitio web móvil de IWB, llamado IWBmob. La primera fase de este re-branding acaba de ser lanzado. Es un diseño móvil primero. Esto significa que se ha rediseñado su página de perfil y todo el proceso de reserva. Y no es nada menos que revolucionario. Nuestro nuevo diseño cuenta con una estética móvil de vanguardia y una experiencia de usuario optimizada y flexible. Para los usuarios de nuestro nuevo motor de reservas, la experiencia superará prácticamente cualquier sitio de reservas moderno disponible hoy.

¿Qué significa móvil primero?

Mobile-first significa que nuestro sitio responderá con flexibilidad a todo tipo de computadoras y dispositivos, con énfasis en los usuarios móviles. Después de todo, más del 25% de las reservas de viajes en todo el mundo se realizan en dispositivos móviles. Y, en algunos países, las reservas móviles aumentan a un ritmo del 20% o más cada año. Pero, esto también significa que nuestro sitio web, y su información de propiedad, será igualmente hermosa y funcional en todas las computadoras. En las próximas semanas, las fases adicionales de nuestra nueva marca IWBmob serán visibles en todo nuestro sitio web.

Una cosa a considerar al seleccionar su motor de reserva principal es esta. ¿Ha realizado el proceso de reserva en varios dispositivos móviles diferentes, como un iPhone, un teléfono Android y una tableta? ¿Son las confirmaciones por correo electrónico de que sus invitados reciben igualdad de movilidad? Instant World Booking tiene todo esto cubierto para usted.

Te invitamos a consultar tus nuevas páginas de perfil (incluyendo hasta 15 páginas traducidas para cada propiedad que siempre hemos ofrecido). Creemos que estarás de acuerdo en que funciona mejor en dispositivos móviles y es más sencillo y fácil para los usuarios que la mayoría de los otros sitios de reservas.

Para la comparación, aquí están algunos de los mejores perfiles que hemos visto. Le recomendamos que los revise para obtener ideas. Recuerde, agregue sus mejores fotos!

Hotel Convento Santa Catalina, Guatemala
Wander Inn Bunbury, Australia
Amigos Hostel Cozumel, Mexico
Bondalem Beach Club, Indonesia
New Ostel Florence, Italy
Nanu Guesthouse, South Korea

Como una ventaja añadida, pronto introduciremos algunos métodos innovadores de integrar tu experiencia de IWB con Facebook y otras redes sociales. Se trata de innovaciones completamente nuevas que actualmente no son utilizadas por ningún otro servicio de reservas. Busque anuncios futuros para aprender a aprovechar estas innovaciones.

Dynamite Things To Do In NYC In March

NYC was made for walking and has plenty of options for any visitor to take in. For instance Central Park is the city’s “Nature Playground” and during the spring and summer months, street fairs pop up all around New York’s neighborhoods though they’re hard-pressed to match the pop-up holiday markets that spread good cheer in Columbus Circle, Bryant Park, and Union Square. But since we’re focusing on the Month of March, I dont want to get too carried away, which is easily done when I think of this beautiful city. Between late night comedy shows, the world famous St. Patricks Day Parade, major movie premiers and food and wine events which are just a few that come to mind, you certainly can have a multitude of exciting and adventurous areas to explore. The below article specifically brings to your attention actually “48 marvelous things to do in March in NYC!”  Also, log onto our website below to find your perfect Hotel in New York!
