Fly to Asia and Stay in a Familiar U.S. Hotel Chain

Wednesday, March 31st, 2010

If you’re purchasing a ticket for a trip to Asia, it is beginning to look a lot more like America—at least when it comes to hotels.

Major United States hotel chains are aggressively expanding into Asia, creating new options for travelers looking for familiar brands abroad. Starwood Hotels & Resorts plans to open 34 to 40 properties in the Asia Pacific region this year, or about three hotels a month, including the first St. Regis in Japan, the first W in Thailand and the first Le Méridien in Taiwan. Hilton plans to open new hotels in Japan and China by year-end. And Marriott will add about 20 properties, including four JW Marriott properties in India, four Courtyard by Marriott properties in China, and a Ritz-Carlton in Shanghai.

Fly to London to See Kensington Palace’s Interactive Makeover

Monday, March 29th, 2010

Princess Diana’s former home, Kensington Palace, was re-branded “The Enchanted Palace” on Friday, March 26, 2010 to lure tourists from other popular London sights, such as Madame Tussauds waxworks and the Tower of London, where the Crown Jewels are displayed (behind thick glass).

In this interactive age, it’s not enough for a stately palace to offer royal art, staid banquet rooms and roped-off thrones, so curators have opted for fashion, performance art and a bit of Alice in Wonderland fantasy.

The two-years exhibit, meant to draw viewers into the lives of past residents, uses lighting, actors and musicians to set the mood. One man even coaxes sound from a saw with a violin bow.

Domestic Tourism Exhibition in Nairobi

Sunday, March 28th, 2010

The “Holiday 2010″ exhibition, aimed at the Kenyan domestic but also the regional tourism market, is on this week again between March 17-21, held as usual at Nairobi’s Sarit Centre. Hotels, lodges, safari camps, and beach resorts will all showcase their low-season special offers for Kenyans, Kenyan residents, and East Africans, many of which will see reductions of over 70 percent compared to published rack rates, making a holiday at home, i.e., a visit to the Kenyan beaches or game parks, more affordable for ordinary people and expatriated living in the region.

Traditionally, the annual low season commences in early April, or the week after Easter, and then runs up to the end of June, at times even until the middle or end of July.

Domestic tourism was the backbone of survival during the global economic downturn for many of Kenya’s accommodation establishments and has been targeted by the Kenya Tourist Board as a key component in marketing the country and making the tourism industry less dependable and less vulnerable to events elsewhere around the world.
