The deals are coming fast and furious from Cathay Pacific Airlines, Hong Kong's official carrier. They were heavily battered by the loss of traffic during the SARS crisis, and now that Hong Kong is off of health agencies' no-travel lists, they're trying to John Woo people back onto their planes.
December may seem so far off that you don't really need to consider it yet, but those who do plan ahead can take advantage of some alluring offers for packages to Rome for under $100 a day.
A few weeks ago, we reported on a Delta Airlines sale to the Bahamas, the archipelago of beachy resort islands near Florida. We thought those $208 prices were great -- so we were even more impressed when we heard about US Airways' new sale for summer travel to Freeport, on Grand Bahama Island.
Here's the kind of quandary we love to grapple with: do you wander out to explore the majestic countryside surrounding your gorgeous, pampering all-inclusive luxury resort? Here's the chance to answer that question yourself. Almond Beach Village in Barbados -- normally charging a minimum of $500 per night in the off-season -- is willing to give you five nights starting from $929. And that includes airfare from Miami!

From Mary Jewell: "I've been to Bulgaria about 9 times (I lived there twice). The folks are great. Many people get a little intimidated by the Cyrillic alphabet used there. Plovdiv, Bulgaria's second largest city is a museum town that dates back to about 5000 BC. It has a neat old town and a Roman theatre. I've been to nearby Hungary as well, but Bulgaria is my favorite. The village of Koprivstitsa, Rila Monastery, Nesebar on Black Sea and Veliko Tarnovo (a walled medieval town with houses hanging over a gorge) are all wonderful. What are your favorite spots?"
From Charlotte Coe: "Hi, I am searching for information about freight ship lines that take passengers. The trip I am planning will be in 2004 starting anywhere in N. America. I hope to spend time in southern Europe, Scandinavia, South Africa, and Australia. Any good tips will be much appreciated."
From Rosana Gatti: "We are planning a two-week trip at the end of July (12th-25th). We are already planning to visit the Reef for a portion of that trip, but my 16-year old boy wants to do either Melbourne, Sydney or both. We realize it will be winter and cold, but we'd like to accommodate his request. What he'd really like to do is see an Aussie Rules Football match and/or Rugby. Is it possible to get in without season tickets? Which is the best city? What else to do with a 16-year old boy who wants to experience an Australian winter."
From Joan Elizabeth Smith: "I just got back from Paris on June 1, 2003, and loved my rental apartment. I found it at www.parisperfect.com, and I stayed at the "Bordeaux" with 3 of my friends. The location was great and the information provided by the owners was wonderful. Anyone wanting details, just ask."
From Paul Levatino: "Some hints that traveller's might find helpful: Venice's 24 hour (¿ 10,50) or 72 hour (¿ 22,00) vaporetto tickets allow holders to use the Number 5 ACTV bus from Marco Parlo airport to Piazalle Roma at no extra fee. Tickets also allow users to take one piece of luggage with them during transit, saving more."
