We've got the skinny on three companies selling affordable packages that take you to China in time to celebrate New Years with a few billion other people; or skip the crowds and cruise up river.
Hit the road and head to Vermont -- just in time for some leafpeeping.
There may be more than 700 islands in the Bahamas, but it's the two biggies that are offering the best deal this week. If you're a couple taking a winter trip to Nassau/Paradise Island or Grand Bahama Island, tap into this two-for-one air deal to save a big chunk o' cash.
Think about it: instead of scones at the Starbucks in Breckenridge, you could be nibbling pastries in Innsbruck. Instead of brewing up a cup of Swiss Miss in Vail, you could be brewing a cup with a Swiss miss in Zermatt.
Sin City isn't always cheap. All those "extras" that are usually included in your stay in almost any destination on the planet have a pricetag attached to them on and off the Strip. You can bet on paying for access to your hotel's fitness center, for the use of pool gear and for that continental breakfast for example. Well, we've rounded up some cost-cutting hotel stays and a nifty air-hotel package to boot.

From Dolly-ellen Friedman: "We just returned from the Fall Foliage cruise of the QE2. It was really amazing, and the ship did not disappoint. It was really kept up beautifully, and the trip was one we will remember forever. The Frommer's guide did not lie. It was really worth it."
From Greg Burnett: "We are thinking about an Egypt tour with a Nile Cruise but are concerned with a recent story of a fire on one of the newer boats. The boat in the story was the Kempinski Ganna which was only one year old and had sprinklers in every cabin. It was completely burned and all was lost. Can anyone tell us if these boats seem safe?"
From Uriel Gottesman: "My wife and I were ready to make a reservation to go from Washington, D.C. to NYC on Amtrak. We were quoted a price of $80 each way per person. I remembered that in a previous Frommer's newsletter, there was advice on using different discount codes. By using the suggested codes, we got the same trip for $115.20 round trip. This amounted in a savings of $90 for both of us. Thanks for providing this information. Keep it up."
From clemmiez: "As many of you know, in Europe whether flying internationally or domestically, there are free luggage carts available at departure and arrival. In the United States, unless you go out to the curb and find an abandoned one, carts are stacked in a machine and cost $3.00. The only exception to this (in my experience) has been on arriving international flights. Luggage carts in the international baggage claim - customs area were free. Imagine my surprise when coming home to Newark airport from Switzerland on October 1st to find NO carts in the international luggage claim area EXCEPT for the ones you pay for. I asked an airport employee and they said October 1 was the first day for this and that both Kennedy and LaGuardia were dong the same thing."
From Deedee Anderson: "My husband and I are bargain hunters when it comes to accommodations and are happy with a clean, basic room. However, we certainly don't want to find ourselves in a potentially dangerous area of a city (as we did once). Anyone have any hints for determining which areas of a given city we might want to avoid?"
