Deals and News
Tired of high bus and rail fares, New Yorkers of all stripes are fighting back by taking the "Chinese buses" to Boston and Washington. We tried them out, and they look like a useful addition to the travel arsenal--and a great replacement for oft-grotty Greyhound.
Once a shipping backwater during Brazil's 18th-century gold rush, Rio de Janeiro developed into a prime competitor with the best of European capitals after Prince Jo¿o arrived from Portugal in 1808. Now, this prince of a city is surprisingly affordable (in high season, no less) with a great air and hotel package from Tourlite.
Originally planned as a January-only special, Tahiti Vacations is now selling its weeklong packages to the utopias of Tahiti, Moorea and Bora Bora for travel through the end of March. This deal is last-minute and entirely affordable, so our crystal ball says spaces will sell out quickly.

Raluca Vlaic-- "We are a group of friends(5 or6 persons) from Romania, Europe, who have enrolled in a program called 'Work and Travel in USA' for the summer of 2003. The program is geared to students who want to spend their summer working and traveling through USA. We have successfully passed and interview in English, held by American people from the World Wise Organization, and now we have to find a place where we would like to work next summer, so they can fill in our visa application forms (IAP- J1 Visa ). We have choosen Chicago because we have heard it is a nice place to visit, and we will be happy if we could also find a place to work here in order to blend work and fun to have a real good holiday! I am looking for offers or suggestions! Thank you very much!"
Cathy Haar-- "I'd love to hear suggestions from anyone who has stayed in the Boston area. At this point, I'm leaning towards Plymouth. But I'm wondering if there are interesting places to stay in any of the coastal towns between there and Boston."
Jason Belanger-- "Hi folks, my wife and I are going to Anaheim, her for work and me for fun. But after we've been to Disney, what else is there to do in Anaheim? We didn't plan on renting a car so does the bus system cater to visitors as well as locals? What about bus trips? Are the studio tours worth the time? I was hoping to visit the beach too but are they going to be open in early March? Or should I just bring a book and lounge at the pool?"
Jason Bailey-- "Going to NYC in late March and looking for restaurant recommendations. We would like to eat well but also be somewhat budget conscious. We are however willing to spend a little more to eat somewhere special if it's absolutely worth it and we want to eat somewhere special at least once while there. If your familiar with NY restaurants, where would be the one place you would absolutely eat at without spending way too much? We are comfortable heading into the $75.00 per person range if needed but if it's good and the price is lower, even better. We also enjoy inexpensive places with great food and atmosphere. Lastly, we are staying at the Grand Hyatt so a few recommendations within an easy walk would be nice for a meal or two. We enjoy Italian and Mexican cuisine the most but are open to others. Thanks!"
"There is much more to Philadelphia than downtown (or Center City as it is called). One area of interest is University City (in West Philadelphia across the Schulykill River from Center City) where the U. of Pennsylvania (including medical and law schools) and Drexel University campuses are located plus many great ethnic and trendy restaurants. Here also is the the award-winning Restaurant School which serves meals planned and cooked by its students. All easy to reach by city buses which travel West on Walnut St. and East on Chestnut St. Walk around and enjoy the diversity of students, architecture and shops and restaurants."
