Destination: Dubai
About this photo: This photo is crooked because I took it from SUV riding over big sand dune. If you make it to Dubai, definitely take the desert tour. The sand dunes here are much better than those in Death Valley and Mojave desert. We took the pm tour combined with traditional dinner, camel back riding, and belly dancing at the camp with fire in the middle of desert.
Best deal found:
Just few heads up about this tour: a) if you visit in winter, bring warm clothes for the evening at the camp, as the air temperature in desert drops quicky after sunset. b) be ready for 2-hour long SUV ride up and down the sand dunes. It’s fun only if your stomach can handle it. You get 2 short breaks.

Destination: Viet Nam
About this photo: Photo taken in Viet Nam of my husband’s village.
Best deal found: Airfare to Viet Nam the biggest expense of getting there. Once you are there everything is dirt cheap. There are so many beautiful places to see. The food and hotels are cheap. I have stayed in Ho Chi Minh City (formally SaiGon) for less then $20 a night and the room was fantastic.

About this photo: Went to visit the famous Banzai Pipeline on the north shore of Oahu and stumbled upon a bodyboarding contest.
Best deal found: There’s no such thing as a private beach in Hawaii. Just walk right up!
