Ireland - has established itself internationally as a major golf destination, particularly in recent years with the hosting of major competitions such as the American Express World Championships in 2002 and the Ryder Cup in 2006.

Greens fees have tripled in the past decade, driven up no doubt by the flocks of golfing enthusiasts from Japan, where the cost of a game is through the roof.

So in the last years, world-class golf courses have been created from North to South and some others are under construction. Even if the number of 18-holes reaches only the dozen for the time being, Vietnam is on the way to become a golf and tourism destination.

Escape routes
Songkran is around the corner. It’s time to either escape the heat, escape the crowds, or go one step further – escape the country
One of the great qualities of Songkran is that, unless you are stuck in an office, it is almost impossible not to change your routine during these few days. Parents beckon, activities are taking place everywhere, parties are outrageous, and everyone seems to be in a good mood. But what you do will depend on your preference. Some prefer a quiet time and others full immersion in the holiday. Here are three, full-proof itineraries:

Postcard-perfect Portugal
Nothing is more important on a holiday than refusing to be hurried. Even if one has only a week or two out of the other 52 working-like-a-dog days in life's calendar, it is prudent to spend them in pursuits like peeling a sweet Portugal orange on a sun-soaked balcony in Albufeira, while the winds off the Atlantic blow freshness and energy back into your soul.
I suspect that's why I found so many winter-weary Maritimers in the Algarve province in Portugal last month. It's the new Florida or Cuba for many from the Metro Moncton area, since air fare plus two weeks at a super-nice apartment still comes in at $1,409 per person plus tax. It's considerably cheaper on a per day basis if you're one of the lucky ones staying for two or three months.

Seville: the big orange
Three features make Seville stand out not only as a city in Spain but one of the finest settlements in Europe. They are the smell, the streets and the tiles. These might seem odd items to bring together, yet in a subtle way they are the secret of the success of a place that, despite the undoubted popularity of Andalusia, is still something of a mystery to that section of the British population which thinks that straying more than a mile from the coast on a visit to southern Spain is, well, criminal. ....

Resort report: Fuerteventura
Golden drifts of sand, like fine-spun silk, ripple towards the sparkling shore. Goats are herded across arid plains dotted with windmills. And long-dead volcanoes, scarred and deformed, pierce the cloudless sky.
Just 50 miles from Saharan Africa, the island of Fuerteventura has a breathtaking, barren beauty. Despite the volcanic terrain, it has some of the best beaches in the Canary Islands - miles and miles of largely deserted sand. Guaranteed sunshine and negligible rain make it a great year-round destination, and there is no time difference after the four-hour flight....

Gourmet tour of the Basque Country
From the pleasant town of Saint-Jean-de-Luz to the very picturesque port of Getaria, the Basque coast boasts magnificent scenery and a fabulous gastronomic heritage. The Basque Country is a geographical, cultural and linguistic entity. It has always been considered as a unit by the French and Spanish sides alike: so it is quite natural for an inhabitant of Saint-Jean-de-Luz to go and spend the evening in San Sebastian, which is the nearest big city (30 km/19 miles away), or for an inhabitant of Irun to go and visit Biarritz or Bayonne! ....

Marketing the wilds of East Java
Could the little village of Pacet in the hills outside Surabaya become the eco-tourism center of East Java? It certainly has the credentials: Dense forests, steep slopes, spectacular waterfalls and fertile valleys; history for the finding; culture for the curious.

Hawaii as Haven
Hawaii was calling, as it often does when my agenda is R&R. I was seeking Hawaii without glitz -- no beachfront hotels, torch-lighted hula shows or $12 Mai Tais. It's doable, even as some Hawaiian places veer close to becoming like the places visitors come here to escape.
My quest took me to Kauai, where I was salted and kneaded by practitioners of Hawaiian massage; to Oahu, where I took a history tour of Waikiki; and to the Big Island, where I rode a mule and tasted coffee beans.
I love Hawaii and not just because the water's warm. Here, I shed my cares with my shoes and while away hours doing the simplest things.

Cricket fever to erupt in Thailand
Hundreds of sportsmen plus their families are in Thailand this month to take part in a series of tournaments around the country, but they will be playing a game that most local people don't understand - cricket.
Arguably the biggest amateur cricket tournament in the world starts today in Thailand's northern capital of Chiang Mai, and that tournament is followed by similar competitions in Hua Hin and Phuket.

San Marino Grand Prix April 23, 2006 - Start: 10.00 Imola

Italy Travel - Last Minute Hotels in Bologna
The San Marino Grand Prix is the home of Ferrari, Imola is the home of the Tifosi and the track is named after Enzo`s son Dino. So is it any wonder that its fanatical following is swathed in red with the Cavalino motif for all to see. The track has been described as a miniature Nurburgring because of it`s wooded areas, variety of curves and corners, and its wonderful undulating terrain. It`s not a sophisticated circuit; it`s just a great racetrack, the San Marino Grand Prix is a venue every driver and team wants to win.

Italy's Architectural Wonders
Richard Meier's new museum in Rome is leading the trend of the modern in a country steeped in history
Italy has always been a top destination for anyone wanting to see wonders of architecture.
