Tips on buying travel, food and wine online
Booking a flight or a package holiday has never been so easy thanks to the Internet, and with so many things to see and places to go it's hard to know where to begin.
Take a look at www.Asiatravelmart.com, a one-stop shop which lets you book everything from hotels, tour packages cars and flights online.
It has a language translator and even a festival calendar so you can plan that holiday around whatever activities you want to see.
Finding a good restaurant in Hong Kong, and then getting a decent table, has always been a hard task. It's especially difficult if you don't know where to look and have time to phone and make a reservation.
A new booking service for Web surfers is www.yreserve.com, which lets you check the availability of more than 50 recommended restaurants across Hong Kong and Lantau Island.
For a long time, Asia has had little to offer lovers of good wine. Its isolation from the great wine growing centers of Europe, the US, Australia and South America has restricted good wine to those with deep pockets or good connections.
Until now, the only way to find a great selection of wines from all over the world has been to surf the web sites of foreign e-tailers such as Australia's Wine Planet. Now Singapore-based www.e-wineAsia.com offers a comprehensive service for both connoisseurs and beginners.
Wine selections vary with categories from armagnac to eau de vie. If you register with the site you get special offers and five percent discounts on all online purchases.
