Over 300 People Affected by Online Travel Agency Tour Packages Cancellation

Few days ago, we blogged about 120 People Stranded in KLIA After Getting Scammed by Online Travel Agency and you can read it here. Yesterday, Harian Metro reported that over 300 people had their European tour crushed when the travel agency cancelled their tour packages. ( = || []).push({}); From what we understand, this could be the same online travel agency that left 120 people stranded in KLIA a few days ago. According to the news report, ...

Marriott Bonvoy, Joon, and Other Thoughts About Branding

I volunteer as a mentor for micro-entrepreneurs for several hours on Tuesday evenings and have been doing so for years — and several minutes of the discussion in the latest session pertained to branding, which sparked thoughts which reminded me of the recent branding efforts in the travel industry. The logos of three companies... The post Marriott Bonvoy, Joon, and Other Thoughts About Branding appeared first on The Gate.

Travel News: February 12, 2019

United Airlines Is Courting Business Travelers Aggressively Motley Fool United Continental (NASDAQ:UAL) spent much of the past decade as the laughingstock of the airline industry. A series of customer-service gaffes and mediocre service led to erosion of its once-loyal customer base. Delta Air Lines (NYSE:DAL) capitalized on the opportunity to poach some of United’s most valuable customers, enabling it to consistently outperform the other major airlines in terms of unit revenue and profitabilit...

Scuba sites in Baja California

Baja California is famous for its dramatic landscape of boulder fields, cactus-studded mountains, and nearly 2,000 miles of rugged coastline. While Baja may be arid and earth-toned above water, below the surface it transforms into a colorful and biodiverse ecosystem. Nicknamed the world’s aquarium by Jacques Cousteau, this region is one of Mexico’s most impressive destinations for dive travel, yet it’s often overlooked by tourists in favor of the Yucatán. If you want these stunning sites all ...

La Serena, Where Everybody Knows Your Name (How??)

La Serena isn’t some pueblito in the Atacama Desert—Chile’s second-oldest city is the capital of the Coquimbo Region and it has a population of nearly 200,000 (400,000 for the Greater La Serena). Yet, it feels like a small town. Case in point, I was walking on the beach when I saw someone taking pictures of the Faro Monumental with a fancy DSLR. Since he was using a Nikon similar to mine, I thought he was my chance to get the classic tourist shot in front of the big lighthouse. He obliged me, th...

Visit Edmonton, Alberta, Canada

Snuggled between the Canadian Rockies of British Columbia and the flat open plains of Saskatchewan lies the sunny province of Alberta. Diverse landscapes of emerald gleaming lakes, dense boreal forest, and jagged mountain peaks draw visitors year-round. Many use Calgary as their gateway, not ever making it to the provincial capital of Edmonton, a three-hour drive north up AB-2. As locals are quick to call out, this is a mistake. With unusual malls, expansive parks, multicultural festivals, an...

Outdoor opportunities in Taiwan

Taiwan is a sweet-potato-shaped island surrounded by rugged coastline and long stretches of beaches, with towering mountain ranges running north to south in the center. It’s always been a popular destination for other East Asian tourists for its natural sceneries, most notably YangMingShan and Sun Moon Lake, but its outdoor opportunities have long been overlooked by travelers from the rest of the world in favor of bustling Taipei. Taiwan is secretly one of the best backpacking destinations: e...

Best hostels for solo travelers

Anecdotally, it seems like solo travel is the new “it” way to see the world. But even if your Instagram feed isn’t filled with pictures of people climbing mountains by themselves, numbers don’t lie. Hostelworld — the worldwide mavens and aggregators of everything hostel-related — found a 42 percent increase in solo bookings over the past two years. A remarkable number given how popular hostels were for solo travelers to begin with. Each year, Hostelworld filters through over 1.2 million hoste...

Oxford English Dictionary all hemajang

"Chee, you seen Kaipo? He had karang da reef on his face. Ho, all hemajang. Was uji ." I was reminded of the wonderful Hawaiian pidgin word hemajang when the Oxford English Dictionary announced it was putting the word hammajang on its extensive list of "real" words. There is, of course, no standard spelling for most pidgin words. And I was concerned the English dictionary OED would create a standard where none existed. I was concerned, because if you were to find a standard, it might ...

Hawaii mops up after winter storm, Senate rejects marijuana edibles, Honolulu public-private rail partnership 4 months behind schedule, Big Island gets half the recovery money, more news from all the Hawaiian Islands

Strong winds are expected to ease on Monday after a potent winter storm pummeled the state just a day prior, toppling trees onto cars, sending waves washing onto roadways and triggering widespread power outages throughout the day. Although a statewide high wind warning has been canceled, a high surf warning is in effect for all islands along with scattered weather warnings and advisories as the low-pressure system passes north of Hawaii Island this morning.

50 Romantic Phrases in the Italian Language

“How do I love thee?” Elizabeth Barrett Browning asked. She counted the ways in English, but the passionate Italophile may well have chosen Italian when she whispered words of love.  Why not? Like love itself, a dichiarazione d’amore (declaration of love) is lovelier in Italian. Keep in mind that Italians reserve the words "ti amo" (I love you) only for the loves of their lives. Italian parents and children as well as boyfriends and girlfriends express affection with “Ti voglio bene,” which tra...

Loose change in US airports total

It’s a phenomenon all travelers can relate to: going through airport security and discovering a few quarters buried in your pockets at the last second. Hurriedly, you toss them into the bin before passing through the metal detector. Once you’re on the other side, you’re rushing to gather your belt, laptop, shoes, and other belongings from the bin, maybe notice those coins at the last minute and think, “Nah. What am I gonna do with 23 cents?” Well, you’re not alone. Hundreds of thousands of tr...

Use Points Advance to Lock In Current Marriott Redemption Rates Before Prices Go Up

When Marriott announced their award category changes that go into effect March 5, I noted that 346 hotels would cost more points and 37 would cost fewer. I initially wrote that you could use points advance to lock in reservations now at the current rate even if you don't have the points, and redeem later (after March 5 when prices go up). Several readers pointed out to me that Marriott implied in their announcement that this wasn't the case. However I've re-confirmed this still works . Conti...

Amazing shrines and temples in Kyoto

Kyoto is one of the most bustling and beautiful cities in Japan. With more than 2,000 Buddhist temples and Shinto shrines, including 17 UNESCO World Heritage sites, it’s a perfect place to take in the country’s history and magnificence. All of those options are a blessing and a curse, however. Because Kyoto is filled with so many temples and shrines, navigating which to go to can be overwhelming — especially if you want time left to eat, shop, and explore other parts of the city. If you’re o...

how to eat tuna

Some years ago, after reading about overfishing and the horrendous state of our oceans, I vowed to stop eating tuna. Certain species of tuna are on the brink of extinction, thanks to soaring demand and modern fishing methods. Plus, the "eating fish is good for you" equation has changed because of the presence of mercury in many fish, especially tuna. I decided to put tuna in the same category as veal and lobster -- animal products I no longer eat.Alas, while I have no problem foregoing lobster ...

What to do in Salisbury, England

As one of England’s most beautiful and famous cities, Salisbury is full of amazing things to see and do, yet the city has somehow remained off the itinerary of most visitors to England. Most stop at Stonehenge and bypass the city entirely despite it being a mere 18-minute drive from the monument. The town is also just two hours from London by train, and it’s perfect for a day out or a short break as it’s a city rich in heritage and history and offers a tremendous sense of community. We’d reco...
