  “The cost of summer holidays can add up as people are travelling further afield in search of a beach or city break, but a summer trip doesn’t have to break the bank,” advised Janice Lee Fang, TripAdvisor’s Communications Director, Asia Pacific. “Travellers can compare prices and book great deals on TripAdvisor, and can save up to AUD $1,564 for certain destinations such as Hong Kong if they are flexible with their dates by visiting during the least expensive week, which is the week of  22ndFebruary according to TripAdvisor booking data.”
