Talk to a real travel agent


Dear Hillary,
I’m coming down to Thailand next month for a couple of weeks. Where do you suggest I stay? Must be clean and quiet and close to the strip, lady OK.


Dear Ged,
What do you think I am? A travel agent or something? Where anyone stays depends first on price, and that you can find that out by going to the web. You won’t get much for B. 500, and you’ll get everything for B. 5,000. How much have you got to spend for your holiday budget? I think “Lady OK” means can you bring a room mate home? Certainly, but you may be asked for a “joiners” fee, and they don’t mean a chap with a lump of wood and a saw. Go and talk to a real travel agent, not an Agony Aunt.
