Bohol Hotels: Another Pride of the Province by Jose Maria Abada

Bohol hotels are among one of the prides of the province of Bohol. This island province in the Visayas is located southeast from Cebu across Bohol Strait and southwest from Leyte separated by the Camotes Sea and Canigao Channel.

In this province lies one of the major tourist attractions found in the Philippines, the Chocolate Hills. This has become the provincial seal of Bohol. The grass growing on more than 1200 consistently cone-shaped hills turns brown making them appear like a molded chocolate.

The second smallest creatures in the world are endemic to the place. The Philippine Tarsier is more famous for its local name Maumag. This shy nocturnal creature follows a hidden life. They are active at night and asleep during the day. They have a sanctuary to live in Bohol and it became an attraction among tourists since then.

Bohol is also blessed with wonderful beaches that also become major attractions in the province. Along with the Chocolate Hills, Tarsiers and some historical landmarks, there are so much that await tourists to explore in the island of Bohol. Some very ancient churches are located in the island and there are other impressive falls and historical landmarks as well.

An island located in southwest of Tagbilaran City, Panglao is known for its dive sites and are regularly regarded as one of the top ten diving spots in the world. There are islets surrounding the island that are ideal for bathing. The islets of Gak-ang and Pontod are just two of the famous.

Bohol Hotels at its Best

Making Your Vacation a Luxury by Art Gib

Hotels are usually the lodging of choice for most people's vacations, but let's face it: there's only so many pillow mints and $20 soups from room service that one person can stomach. More and more, people are turning to vacation rentals to spice up their getaways. Particularly, luxury vacation rentals have become increasingly popular, letting you live in your dream home while enjoying your favorite vacation hot spots. Here are a few reasons to strongly consider a vacation rental and some things to keep in mind as you shop for a house to stay in.

One of the many benefits of a luxury vacation rental is that each home is unique, and you can choose from a vast selection to find the type that fits you and your family--whether it is a beachfront location, a scenic luxury cabin, or a downtown, high-rise condo. No matter your tastes, there is much less risk in finding a comfortable, relaxing location when you look for a luxury vacation rental rather than just any home someone is willing to open up for a week or two.

To help ensure your luxury rental is perfectly suited and ready for your visit, it is prudent to consider turning to a luxury vacation rental service. Not only do they have a ready supply of available homes, but they also supply a middleman to help handle any issues that might arise between the tenants and the owners. Likewise, luxury vacation rental services generally offer some of the amenities you're used to in high-class hotels that you won't find at other rentals: concierge services, house cleaning, bathroom supplies, and even grocery shopping and stocking to make your meals that much easier to take care of.

When searching for a quality vacation rental, you'll also want to make sure you're fully aware of any reservations, deposits, or general rules that are important to know. For instance, you should probably find out whether a luxury rental allows pets or not and if an extra deposit is necessary should you bring one along. Getting that cleared up early on can save many headaches and problems that might arise later. And double-check to make sure if kitchen supplies, like silverware and cooking appliances, will be available. While most luxury vacation rental services ensure that these items are always taken care of, you want to be fully aware of what the home will be like when you arrive.

Above all else, make your vacation unique and memorable by picking the perfect luxury vacation rental for you and your family. Enjoying the comforts of home in a lavish location has never made relaxing...well, more relaxing!

Your Winter Vacation: Start Planning Now! by Art Gib

After living in Phoenix, Arizona, for nineteen years, I am definitely over summertime. I actually cannot wait for the return of the snow; my spouse and I are even looking forward to a winter vacation in the Rocky Mountains, and I couldn't be more thrilled.

Most people associate winter getaways with skiing and snowboarding, so if you aren't terribly athletic or coordinated (like I'm not), a snowy vacation might not sound very appealing. But trust me when I say there is more to such a retreat than winter sports.

You and your spouse can have the ultimate escape of adventure, closeness, and romance in chilly conditions if you just listen up for a few tips.

First, consider staying somewhere relatively close to home. After all, when it's snowing, the last thing you want to do is get stuck in traffic or become tense from dangerous road conditions. Even if you fly to your destination, you will still have to be concerned with renting a car and driving in winter conditions in an unfamiliar area. Yikes!

If that isn't a viable option, then be sure to continually check weather reports and make sure your vehicle has been adequately equipped with snow tires and a sturdy set of chains.

Once you have reached your destination, be sure to maintain a good balance between play and relaxation. Staying in a lodge or a bed and breakfast will really give that warm, cozy feel of a home-away-from-home. Many lodges that are specifically geared toward winter getaways feature fireplaces that create the perfect atmosphere for snuggling and getting closer together.

Snowmobiling is the prime way to get outdoors and into the snow without having to be athletic or risk life and limb like you might with skiing or other winter sports. Many Rocky Mountain resorts even offer Utah snowmobile rentals, guided snowmobile tours of beautiful mountain areas, and allow you to customize how long you want to spend outdoors--anywhere from an hour or two to the entire day!

Sledding and tubing are also ways to enjoy the bountiful snow covering the surrounding hills. Be sure to bundle up and take a thermos of hot chocolate and maybe even a picnic so that hunger won't interrupt your escapades.

After a day spent out in the cold, you can come back to the lodge and get a massage, as many winter lodges double as resorts with full day spas.

Do plenty of research online. Many lodges have all kinds of winter packages that include one or several of the above activities at a discounted rate. Don't hesitate--planning a winter vacation will give you and your spouse something to look forward to during this last stretch of summer heat!

Cruising From New England To Canada by Arthur Fessenden

A very popular cruise is the New England/Canada starting in New York or Boston. The cruise continues through the territories of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and eventually cruising down the St Lawrence river and ending up in Quebec City or Montreal. This North American holiday is low airfare and light on jet lag going northbound or southbound. When taking this cruise in the fall enjoy the beautiful colorful foliage during this historical cruise.

From the historical aspect of this cruise you would see the history of the American Revolution and the history of the French Canadian provinces. As you are passing through these territories you stop at the various ports of call where tours are scheduled.

Quebec City is my personal favorite as this multi leveled international city brings the charm of the French people to life right here in our own back yard. French culture and food and the architectural layout of the city makes you feel like you are really in France. A great walking and shopping city, makes for a memorable holiday.

French is spoken in Quebec and Montreal but I have never encountered any resistance to English and the people are courteous and hospitable. World class restaurants are abundant and the Canadian dollar is roughly equivalent of the US dollar which makes the money conversion easy to do.

The most photographed hotel in the world is the Chateau Frontenac. Many dignitaries around the world have stayed in this castle like hotel overlooking the St Lawrence river.

To get maximum benefit from this cruise allow 7-14 days. To increase your enjoyment spend extra days in New York (pre or post cruise) and select from the world class plays on Broadway.
