Almost every hour, at least one person emails me asking where they should go on their vacation and which destination will give them the best value. These days, you can pretty much go anywhere since almost the whole world is on sale, trying to ride out the recession. But one place that's always a value is Asia (especially Southeast Asia). The most expensive part of your journey will be the flight over there but from then on, it's savings galore. You will be amazed at how inexpensive hotels, food, transportation and souvenirs are. I'm in love with the Asian culture and would move to Hong Kong in a nanosecond! A great new website showcasing what Asia has to offer is DiscoverAsiaNow.com. It's a group effort from the tourism boards of Hong Kong
, Japan, Korea, Macau
, Philippines, Singapore
. They highlight incredible deals like Cathay Pacific
's All Asia Pass; roundtrip ticket between L.A, San Francisco or N.Y. to Hong Kong and up to four other Asian destinations for $1,499. Or a 14- day trip to see China and India including the Taj Mahal
and the Great Wall of China for under $2,000 per person.
