Submitted by: Dave T.
Destination: Pingan, China
Best deal found: At the top of Pingan is a hotel (really a cabin) that charges only $8/night. Not too many luxuries but this is the view. Wonderful people. Pam (who runs the hotel) and her husband are golden people. This is the second time we’ve stayed at the same place. They also prepared bamboo shoots only available in the April/May time of the year. Wonderful! …dave    Details:

Destination: At the base of Arenal Volcano at sunset, Costa Rica
Best deal found: NatureAir plane tickets – Always set around $60/person one way. It wasn’t on sale, but I thought this in itself was a great deal for any active traveler and a great way to see the country.

Submitted by: Amanda A.
Destination: Litchfield Beach, SC
Best deal found:  As a federal employee, I saved 20% on our room at the Litchfield Inn. We paid $89 a night for a hotel room on the beach in May. There were restaurants within walking distance. We splurged and ate out for breakfast at the ‘Eggs Up Grill’. The service was amazing and fantastic eggs too! During our walk to breakfast we saw this great view of the marshes and canals nearby.

Submitted by: Rency Y.
Destination: Orlando
Best deal found: The picture is of my daughter Rayna, the 2 year old tour guide! We stayed at the Hard Rock Hotel in April ’08, which was fun, but we really liked the Portofino Hotel. I looks just like the real Italian village and they have a lovely breakfast buffet in the cafe! The BEST DEAL: This is a darling little restaurant not to far from downtown Orlando. Great prices, kid friendly, outdoor seating right on a little neighborhood lake.

Destination: Egypt
Best deal found: The food at local eateries and restaurants is extremely cheap. Eating at the hotels was NOT. The two of us could get a two course meal with drinks for the equivalent of $10.00. The most we spent for a dinner was $18.00. Using reward points, we didn’t pay a dime for the hotels. We also used reward points for a portion of our flight.

Submitted by: Carmen M.
Destination: Bryce Canyon, Southern Utah
Best deal found: My husband and I traveled in October and stayed at a popular ski resort in southern Utah. Since it was the off season, we got our condo for half price. We flew into Las Vegas in order to get a better air fare and got a rental car for $12/day. We never plan a trip without checking Clark’s Travel Deals! Thanks Clark!

Destination: Dubai, UAE
Best deal found:  Well, I stayed with my family, so there was no accommodation cost. Flight was about $1000 round trip from ATL <–> Dubai non-stop. The safari trip was great because I had family discount through my friend that works at a hotel. Plus, we had the best driver, too! Gold Souk had very nice jewelries and the prices were GREAT! You can also bargain them…

Destination: Xalapa, Mexico
Best deal found:  Posada La Mariquinta is a great 16th Century hotel run by a trilingual French host. The staff was friendly and the host very knowledgeable of the surroundings.
