If you are planning to sell off your timeshare, you should be aware that though resort timeshare resales are difficult propositions, they are not impossible. There are a few things you should know when you put your timeshare on the market. For a successful resale, you should also make the best use of different promotional avenues.

Make a checklist of all the information a potential buyer would want to know about your timeshare. This includes the type of agreement your timeshare comes under (right to use (RTU) or deeded) and the kind of timeshare you own i.e. whether it uses the points or the weeks system?

Be advised that the present economic scenario is not very favorable for resort timeshare resales. You may recoup only between 35 percent and 70 percent of your initial investment from the resale, depending on factors such as the features of your timeshare unit and its existing market value.

No matter what a hotel (Siem Reap has many to choose from) might offer the intrepid adventurer in terms of all-inclusive amenities, and regardless which accommodation, (Siem Reap hotels generally have their own dining areas), the best restaurants are always those which are separate from the hotels and specialise in one thing and one thing only: food.

Regardless of your choice of hotel, Siem Reap has many temples sites nearby and everyone spends the majority of their days visiting them. By the time they get back to their base accommodation Siem Reap, it has instilled one pressing need that motivates each and every individual: hunger. All that hiking and exploring requires sustenance, and what better way to keep up your energy, than by experiencing a blend of Western and Khmer foods all in one place? The prices in Siem Reap are fairly affordable for most travellers, and you can definitely tell which places are going to cost more because they will have a Western theme or name. In fact, there are a wide number of restaurants owned by foreigners in Siem Reap, so no matter which hotel Siem Reap has available; there is generally a taste of home just around the corner, depending upon your personal preference. But if you want a true taste of Cambodia, the only option is to hit one of the local restaurants for a taste of Khmer c uisine. Other than that, street food is also an option, although picky eaters will probably want to stick to actual restaurants. Siem Reap offers an amazing range of cuisines and dining venues. The emphasis is, of course, on Khmer food. Restaurants are scattered across the town but none is more than a 5-minute tuk-tuk ride away. Many restaurants, including several specializing in Khmer food, are concentrated in the Old Market area, especially around 'Pub Street.' Listings in dark blue offer a bar/nightlife venue in addition to being a restaurant. Listings in maroon also offer a traditional performances.

Few would disagree that summer vacation engenders thoughts of unspoiled beaches, sparkling swimming pools, relaxing spas, and fine restaurants in every member of the family - except, perhaps, for those of the four-legged variety. The perfect summer day for Fido or Fluffy would likely include a helping of tasty treats, a relaxing grooming session, and a few hours worth of fetching and biting chew toys before catching some Z's in a comfy hotel room. Thanks to pet-friendly packages offered at various pet-friendly hotels in major cities like vibrant New York City, historic New Orleans and scenic San Francisco, your pet can have a "pawesome" experience without forcing you to break the bank. Below are a handful of pet-friendly properties offering loads of goodies just too good for your furry companions to pass up.

1. New York's Hotel Pennsylvania: As the host hotel for the annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, New York's Hotel Pennsylvania is no stranger to four-legged guests. Conveniently within walking distance of the Empire State Building, Madison Square Garden, Times Square and the world-famous Broadway Theater District, the hotel offers a pet-friendly special that includes a comfortable guestroom for you and your pet, a welcome pet treat upon check-in, and a copy of Fido-Friendly Magazine. There is a limit of two dogs per room, but the hotel imposes no weight restrictions. Although New York is nicknamed "The City That Never Sleeps," your pet is likely to do otherwise once he or she sets foot in one of the hotel's relaxed guestrooms.

2. Affinia Chicago: Affinia's Jet Set Pets program is designed to help pets feel right at home. Among the services offered are grooming, daycare and boarding, local dog walking/sitting, dog treats, pet beds, pet psychics and pet taxis. Guests can take home a city-specific chew toy, Robbie Dawg tin of organic treats or Homemade Canine Confections, and water bowl designed for travel. Exotic animals or multiple pets are subject to approval by the hotel, and pets must be kept on a leash or inside a carrier while in public areas. Guests should confirm accommodations for their pets with the hotel one week prior to arrival.

3. Hotel Monteleone New Orleans: If your pet is friendly and sociable, he or she will be in good company at Hotel Monteleone in New Orleans. Sitting at the foot of Royal Street in the French Quarter, the historic property features pet-friendly floors where your pup or feline can mingle and play with other visiting pets. The hotel's Monte's Pet Package includes a mat for your pooch to rest comfortably on, monogrammed water and food bowls, waste bags, a chew toy, a bag of gourmet treats, and a city brochure. Guests are free to take these gifts home with them after their stay. Should you decide to take your pet for a walk, you're sure to stumble upon several pet-friendly attractions and restaurants set just minutes of the hotel. Among them are City Park, The Levy Dog Park, Mickey Markey Playground, Cafe Du Monde, Oak Street Cafe and La Thai Cuisine.

4. Ocean Park Resort Myrtle Beach: Certified by the "Pets Can Stay" program, Ocean Park Resort is a pet-friendly facility for small dogs. Accepted year round, pets must be on a leash in all public areas, are not permitted in pool areas, and may not exceed 20 pounds. Carriers are recommended in the event you must leave the pet (only one is allowed per accommodation) unattended in your guestroom. After cavorting with their four-legged friends, the kids - those under 18 stay free - can make a splash in one of the hotel's indoor or outdoor swimming pools.

With the huge boost in the number of businesses marketing on the internet, gone are the days of just adding your site with a explanation of your product or service and sit back and watch the traffic roll in.

Daily we have to keep have to watch closely some of the new technology and methods to optimize our web sites to ensure that we receive enough traffic to help our business. This requires either an expert to do it for you or you have to keep up to date with a technology that is constantly being upgraded.

Today we are competing with thousands perhaps millions of sites all offering related products. We are becoming dependant on the search engines like Google and Yahoo to promote our websites but to achieve a share of the traffic it is important that we know how to strategically place keywords or phrases on our web pages.

One of the most effective tools in marketing your site is to use keyword articles. It is important that the keywords you use are not only pertinent and descriptive for your site but also they must have a high number of searches. It is not going to help bring traffic to your site if a keyword is only searched for a few times a month.

Another aspect to watch is if your website has a lot of competition then strategic keyword placement is very important. When someone types a keyword into a search engine the search engine uses an algorithm to sort out the most pertinent web pages from the database and then ranks them and then displays them. Tactical placement of keywords then becomes a factor in how high your website is ranked.

8am. You are lying in a hammock, swinging in the early morning breeze at one of the all inclusive travel resorts you found online. You gaze at the palms swaying over your head and you feel peaceful - and incredibly happy. In fact, you haven't felt this happy in a long while. Suddenly, your alarm clock rings. You jump out of bed, stubbing your toe on the table beside your bed, wondering why the alarm went off just now, when you're sure you set it to 6 am the night before. The remnants of your beautiful dream vanish as you run to the bathroom. You're running late again. When you finally finish getting dressed and head out the door, you are greeted by traffic. The streets are congested, the cars bumper-to-bumper and honking, drivers yelling at each other in frustration. You sigh. You simply have to run to work today. You arrive in your office, out of breath and sweating. Your boss gives you the evil eye. Thus begins another day at work.

Stressed? Burnt-out? Can't take the noise and pollution of the city one second longer? Well, perhaps it's time to take a well-deserved vacation! If all you want is relaxation at its best, here are some all inclusive travel resorts that will give you the rest that you deserve.

Planning my honeymoon had become a daunting task. My fianc and I wanted affordable luxury, an exotic but accessible location, and a timeless romantic setting all in one. We had spent a fortune on our wedding (sound familiar?) and wanted to locate the lovely, fun, romantic places that would accommodate, well cheap honeymoons. After considering all kinds of far away, and financially far out of reach island honeymoon destinations, I stumbled across the beautiful, historic, laid back Santa Catalina Island. Just an hour away from the southern California mainland on any one of the Catalina ferries, the aptly named Island of romance began to capture my imagination, and after a little investigating, we were soon settled on a Catalina honeymoon.

After considering each of the Catalina resorts, I decided on the Catalina Canyon, a beautiful Catalina resort and spa, which is modern and up to date with all of the amenities that honeymooners could ask for. They have a great restaurant and bar, complimentary shuttles that take you to and from the nearby Catalina ferry terminal, which is just a few minutes by shuttle into town. Their spa has registered massage therapists, saunas, facials and a beautiful pool and poolside... I was pleased. I told them on the phone that I would be on my honeymoon and asked for any honeymoon travel deals and the woman immediately changed my rate and was very fantastic to deal with. I found the prices extremely reasonable. I will add that at all the places I checked out there was a two-day minimum stay

Although we settled on the Catalina Canyon hotel, there were other amazing Catalina hotels that we easily could have chosen. The best Catalina luxury hotel would probably be Catalina's newest hotel, the Avalon Hotel. A very romantic Catalina luxury hotel would be the Inn on Mt. Ada. Stunning views of Avalon Bay and beautiful grounds make the Mt. Ada hotel ideal for a Catalina honeymoon. If you're watching your budget, a great hotel (in keeping with the cheap honeymoons theme) would be the Hermosa Hotel. It may not be the ideal romantic type, but rooms start as low as fifty dollars a night! Remember, in all of these places ask for any honeymoon travel deals or all inclusive vacation honeymoon travel deals, when you make your reservations... the hotel manager will most certainly cut you a deal!

There are tons of romantic activities on Catalina Island. You can rent scuba equipment or snorkel in Lovers Cove (yes, that's really what it's called), rent bikes, or just go for a hike. Wildlife abounds all over and around beautiful Catalina Island, including Bison, which were brought in for a movie many years ago and now roam wild, deer, birds, sea lions, dolphins, whales, myriad fish, including of course Californias state fish, the striking bright orange Girabaldi. There are extremely affordable Catalina island tours which for many, are the best way to see the abundant marine life, bison herds, whales and dolphins and historic buildings like the Wrigley estate and Catalina Casino.

Tours of the 1929 Catalina Casino are $15 and its a great way to learn about Catalina Islands rich history. I should mention that this casino is not the gambling kind (which will only disappoint some) but instead is known for its elegant Art Deco ballroom and movie theater, which plays first run movies as well as silent movies from the past. The building is truly an architectural wonder, and nowadays is available for full service weddings, events, and is home to many events like the Catalina Island Jazz Dance festival, Valentines Day Sweetheart Dance, New Years celebrations and events throughout the year.

The Caribbean is a very popular spot for families to go to on vacation. By traveling together, it makes it easier to get into all-inclusive resorts. A typical all-inclusive family package to the Caribbean offers beach and water sports, spas, dining, parties, kid-friendly programs, baby-sitting, swimming pools and water slides, and much more.

But keep in mind that not every so-called "all-inclusive" Caribbean family travel package includes absolutely everything you could ever want to do on vacation. Be sure you're clear on what your vacation package offers so that you can plan ahead accordingly. Although the package may include a wide variety of activities and features, there may be others you will want to take advantage of.

For example, your family vacation package may include snorkeling gear, but there may be a time limit that restricts how long you are able to snorkel. And if you decide to go on a snorkeling boat trip, that may cost extra as well. The same goes for skuba diving - you may have to pay extra for equipment or be limited to a certain time frame.

Accordingly to Anthony McDonald, Astudo CEO, there is a big need for high quality, international standard hotel management in the market. Most large chains focus on large luxury properties, but we have found a nice niche in the 50-150 room market, below that where the major chains tend to operate. He added that The main attraction owners saw in Astudo was that we have our own brands, which can make marketing and sales highly effective for even a small property. Astudo leverage their X2 and Away brands with boutique properties, enabling them to achieve much highly occupa ncy levels and room rates, than if they were a single brand property. Current Astudo manages two X2 properties (Kui Buri and Samui), three Away Properties (Koh Kood, Chumphon and Chiang Mai), and two Le Bayburi properties (Pranburi and Samui). The company has recently introduced its budget and business hotel brand The Base and is currently looking for owners with city and resort locations who are interested to develop 3-4 star hotels. The company also has several pre-opening consulting contracts with hotels and resorts owners, which should provide the company another 3-4 properties in 2009.Anthony McDonald concluded that One of the companys main priorities for 4th quarter this year is to find a partner or hotel owner interested to establish X2 design hotel in Bangkok. We feel very strongly that our 5 Star X2 design hotel brand will be very successful in Bangkok, and are currently trying to identify land owners or investors who would like to collaborate on the project. Astudo currently has 25 staffs based in Bangkok head office that supports all resorts under its management. This is likely to expand significantly over the next year as enquiries from neighboring countries could result in the establishment of a regional head office to be established.

It's nice to do this because such websites have suggestions from clients that have previously been to the hotel. You will be able to gather whether a resort is going to be a nice place to remain or a nasty place to stay. Make sure when choosing a hotel to stay in that you are completely positive that it fulfills your requirements, and make it possible for they settle for your payment type.In order to get the really huge discounts that motels supply online it is typically a case of going to 1 in the off-season. This will not be your important plan but it's value contemplating should you can go to a destination irrespective of whether it is peak season or not.
