HOLLYWOOD, Feb 21 — When Hollywood was its own little town at the start of the 20th century, it banned movie theatres and liquor, except for medicinal purposes (wink, wink). That ended quickly when movie studios arrived and a louche Los Angeles annexed the upstart.

What to do
Hire a bike or scooter and set about finding your perfect beach: Illetes for people-watching, Migjorn for dazzling white sands, Llevant to escape the crowds (and your clothes). Wade out to the deserted isle of Espalmador to wallow in the natural hot mud springs. Shop for jewellery and clothing at El Pilar de la Mola artisan market (Wednesdays and Sundays).

Don’t drink the water: Translated travel tips for coming to America

Travelers love coming to America, a land many of them have seen via exports from Hollywood. They rave about the landscapes, the recreational opportunities, the vibrant cities and the culture.
But like international travelers anywhere, foreigners visiting the United States from other countries can be flummoxed by some of what they encounter. Fortunately, their fellow travelers have plenty of advice. The picture they paint portrays Americans as relentlessly cheerful yet sensitive folks who just might raid your fridge.

What outsiders say about the U.S. will strike an American as very true, very strange, or both. Here (with some help from Google Translate) are some travel advice gems from around the world. see here: http://travel.yahoo.com/blogs/compass/don-t-d...

My 55 best travel tips
http://www.everywhereist.com/my-55-best-trave...
It is almost May. I’m slightly alarmed by this. Not just because the year is zipping by, and I’m wondering how I squandered away all that time with so little to show for it (Whither the sample chapter of the great American travel memoir, Everywhereist? Whither the clean laundry you were going to do?), but because I am coming up on another anniversary.
Soon, I will have been blogging for three years.

For all the travel enthusiast..

Greek Islands: readers' tips, recommendations and travel advice | Readers offer advice on holidays in the Greek Islands.

Tulip time | North-west Crete is glorious in April. The White Mountains, covered in snow, make a glorious backdrop to the flower-filled olive and orange groves. Drive up the mountain road to the Omalos Plateau, and see rare tulips and the Samaria Gorge. Take the Sougia road out of Omalos, before heading inland through walnut and chestnut groves, alive with migratory birds. Stop at Deres for Greek coffee and yogurt at Yanni’s taverna, and buy his olives and honey raki.

Visit the huge cave of Saint John the Hermit, in the tiny village of Marathokefala, where the view of the coast towards Maleme is spectacular. From there, it’s a few minutes’ drive to Vouves to see the world’s oldest recorded olive tree, ancient and gnarled, and still bearing fruit. Visit the Minoan harbour at Falasarna, then avoiding the goats, drive along the windy coastal road to Sfinari, and lunch by the sea with Eleni and Yanni at their Sunset Taverna. Perfect.

Best travel tips ever

I log around 400,000 real air miles a year (those earned in the air, not by credit card purchases) as travel editor for CBS News, and if there's anything I've learned, it's that most airport, airline, hotel, and other rules and policies are only misguided suggestions. Here are my special tips on saving time, money, and stress, without breaking any rules or ever cutting in line -- in fact, without ever standing in a line!

Pick the farm-team airports - Unless I'm flying long-haul international nonstop, I try to forget O'Hare, J.F.K., San Francisco, and Boston.

Avoid baggage blues
If you're like me, you believe that there are two kinds of airline bags: carried on, and lost.

I came from Australia. I will be in flying to Jakarta, Indonesia for two nights and one full day before traveling to other destinations in Indonesia. Because of the short time span, I wanted to find a really good guide and driver to make the most of our one day in the city. Any suggestions? On a somewhat limited budget, so perhaps not an incredibly expensive guide.

Anyway, how many people in your group? And when will you arrive in Jakarta? I think I could link you with Westhill Consulting Travel and Tours but just a warning though, there are a lot of scams in the city.

Is Westhill Consulting Travel and Tours the one based in Singapore? I suggest you not to settle with one site, I thought they were okay, but there is a lot of other consulting sites you can check. But FYI, I would like to share you my experience while travelling in Jakarta, Indonesia. The most rented car types for private tours in the city, the mpv type car, e.g. daihatsu xenia (google it), 1 day rental is about $30-40 (from 300.000 up to 400.000 rupiah/day). There's no way you could get a lower price in Jakarta. But that's not including the English speaking guide+driver. Just prepare for around $50-60 per day, but this is just my rough estimation.

If you're still undecided on where to stay in Jakarta, Indonesia, you can check out central Jakarta. It is still the best area to stay for someone who are first timers who wish to sample what the city has to offer. The area around Jalan Sabang is lively with hotels, shops, and eateries and close proximity to major tourist attractions and bigger shopping malls

Crucial road travel tips for EU trips

If you’re fond of your motor and want to take it on holiday with you, you’re not alone. Having carried out a survey with 22,000 of their members, the AA recently found that 11% plan to take their car abroad this year.

If travelling by boat and car, the appeal is obvious: you can bring plenty of luggage, it’s often a cheaper way to travel and, most importantly, you have the freedom to travel wherever you want. Roger de Brett, travel manager for the AA says:“Away from the motorways you’re bound to find delightful places to explore as you go.”
