Here I will post a collection of travel tips.
Trip Advisor is a great resource. The biggest drawback is they have some very obnoxious web site practices – such as popup ads.
My favorite hotel and lodging site is Agoda (which I use for my reservation and I get a referral fee based on reservations made via links on my sites).
I got an iPad mini for my most recent trip and it has been great. If someone already has a smart phone it probably doesn’t add much, but in my case I didn’t and the mapping features are great. City Maps to Go is a good app. Trip Advisor app isn’t working nearly as well as it should – maybe it is related to China (where I am traveling), I am not sure.
