World Listed

Milford SoundIf you have a few moments or are in need of travel inspiration the TripAdvisor Destinations Awards are worth a quick once-over. They were apparently ‘determined by a combination of TripAdvisor’s travelers’ favorite places and overall popularity on TripAdvisor’.

New Zealand takes out a quinella, with Milford Sound and Queenstown the two highest ranked destinations. Sydney, Cairns, Byron Bay, Melbourne, Port Douglas, Noosa, Perth, Cape Tribulation, Fremantle, Alice Springs, the Margaret River, Airlie Beach and Hobart were the Aussie inclusions. With regard to the USA California dominated, with Lake Tahoe the hightest rated, and in Europe it was Rhodes. Thailand managed six mentions. One slightly bizarre inclusion was Nadi, which may be a gateway to heaps of Fijian goodness but which is a pretty ordinary destination in itself.

Can anybody tick all of them off?

The Only News Fit To Print

AirAsiaThe West Australian’ website this afternoon managed to fit the news around the AirAsia adverts, just about. Every advertising space on the front page – no less than six of various sizes – was occupied by AirAsia. They could have done with the pretence and directed users to AirAsia’s site, with a column of headlines running along one side. On the other hand, anything that distracts from the car-crash that is Troy Buswell can’t be all bad.

Better late than never – Tiger Airways Sale

Tiger Sale

Tiger Sale

Tiger Airways are also running a sale and the discounts, although they don’t look to be as deep, may be easier to book. Thought it deserved a mention – most of the fares are for travel in May.
