OurOyster.com specializes in a wide variety of travel related themes including:
- Budget travel – We focus on budget travel guides by country as well as recommending budget activities in each place of interest. This helps show potential travellers that travel is both affordable and achievable. We also write guides on how to save money for travel. We also invite other travel writers from across the world to contribute their own budget travel guides, thus growing our database of advice and inspirational tips. For example: 5 awesome and cheap things to do in Copenhagen and Budget Travel in the Maldives.
- Adventure travel – We like to focus on the fun moments of travel and the moments where we push ourselves outside of our comfort zone in order to grow and have new experiences. Many travelers crave the adventure side of travel. For example: Diving With Great White Sharks and Flying over the Nazca Lines.
- Destination guides – We offer a wide range of different types of destination guides. Readers love our destination guides which present quick “24 hour guides” to major cities, which lays out some of the best attractions to see in a city and lays out in which order to tackle the sights in order to make the most of your time. For example: 24 Hours In Sydney. We also like to present more in depth articles which will provide a one stop shop for those looking to research and book their next adventure. For example: How to explore Machu Picchu.
- Outdoor enthusiasts – One of the joys of travel is finding yourself in a completely new landscape. We try to visit as many national parks and hiking trails as possible when we travel, and present reviews and guides to show others how to get away from the cities. For example: How To – The Tongariro Crossing, Hiking In Sydney Coogee To Bondi Coastal Walk.
- Overland and slow travel – We love slow travel – train rides and road trips are our preferred method of travel. We like to see how the country side and landscape changes as you move throughout a region. For example: Great Ocean Road Highlights and How to guide to taking the ferry from Brunei to Kota Kinabalu.
- Product reviews – We are open to reviewing your products or tours.
- Travel with children – We are currently traveling the world with our two little ones. My 5 year old has been to more than 30 countries and has hiked in Patagonia, swam with hammerhead sharks in the Galapagos, hiked across the island of Rarotonga, among many others things. We also travel with a baby which brings it’s own joys and challenges. Our baby has been to 8 countries. He learned to sit in Peru, crawl in Hawaii, and who knows where the next milestone will be met! Our guides include how to guides for how to travel with children in different destinations (for example: traveling with children in Peru) as well as guides about what to do with kids in each destination (for example: what to do with kids in Sydney.
