Weekend Intelligence: November 6-7, 2010

November 6, 2010

I can hardly believe it’s already November. The holiday season is approaching quickly and time seems to be whipping by at breakneck speed. Why not take a moment to relax and get caught up on some of this week’s best travel intelligence?

  • If you’re the kind of traveler who welcomes inspiration when choosing your next destination, look no further than Lonely Planet’s Top 10 Cities for 2011. Favorites like New York made the list but the other nine cities include some that are decidedly below the average traveler’s radar. Iquitos, anyone?
  • From Travel + Leisure magazine: 10 tips to save money on airfare. Favorite tip: consider purchasing one way tickets from airlines like Southwest and JetBlue if your plans don’t include a Saturday night stayover. Least favorite tip: look for connecting flights. Because who looks for connecting flights?
  • It often seems to me that many people are on their worst behavior while traveling. Seems I’m not the only one who thinks so.  The folks over at posed a great travel question this week: do locals hate travelers?
  • From the Single Occupancy Weekly: SpunkyGirl Pamela McNaughtan offers a fresh perspective on Bangkok and argues that most people don’t really make an effort to experience the local aspects of the city. Pamela shares her favorite things to see and do and shares her best tips for enjoying Thailand’s capital city.
