Summer Holiday

As free as a bird. I think so too. Or next best thing would be to be able to fly your own aircraft and swing by to any destination you fancy just like what John Travolta is doing.

Talk about flying, in conjunction with the launching of their daily direct flight to Taiwan from July 1, AirAsia has come up with a package deal of 3D2N with hotel included. Booking period is from 24 April to 3 May and travel period is from 1 Jul to 31 Jan 2010.

The advert is in yesterday's papers, The Star, page N31. In today's papers, it was reported that 20000 seats have been snapped up within 12 hours of AirAsia opening its new Kuala Lumpur-Taipei route. Is there a recession? Perhaps many people travel to Taipeh on business and with AirAsia flying this route, a lot of savings can be realised.

Summer is fast approaching and when it does, Malaysia, like any other tourist destination, will be playing host to holiday-makers in droves. Five-star hotels would see very high occupancy rates and department stores would be bustling again with customers who don't bat an eyelid at the high prices of designer wear. Yep, summer is good for business. And yes, summer spells mega sales which the locals can take advantage of too.

Are you planning on a summer vacation? If so, here are some Strategies for Trimming Summer Vacation Costs that you might want to check out.

    We are experiencing extreme summer here! Some mild coldness would be good...hehe but come to think of it, I don't want the bitter cold and dryness like what those ppl experience in certain parts of the world. Right here is still the best :)

  2. I can't think of any nice tourist spot that is cooler than Malaysia now except Australia. But I can't afford a trip to Australia lol.

  3. I'll be flocking too!

  4. recession?? hmmm, looks like everyone is flying for holidays~~ :p

  5. "Extreme summer" - haha...I like how you put it. I think it's worse in desert places and sandstorms with sand getting into your clothes, your shoes, your hair, your err... everywhere. However, the humidity here is quite unbearable though for those who are not used to it.

    Bitter cold is not for me either.

    Jim, wait, don't write off Malaysia yet. We still have Genting Highlands, Cameron Highlands and Frasers Hill for that mountain coolness and fresh air. LOL

  6. LB, yeah, I hear you loud and clear.

    Hi SK, welcome! I so agree with you. Just look at how fast the Amanah Saham vanished. haha.. Thanks for stopping by.

  7. Oh yeah! How could I have forgotten??? OMG xD

  8. Jim, I would have (forgotten) too if I were like you staying further away from these places. The grass is always greener on the other side. Most of us up here would most probably envy your close proximity to Singapore. Eh?
