Week 6 prize is a package of books & apps – Week 6 is over.
Congratulations to week 6 winner, Lisa B of Minneapolis.
At this point you will join a tour that explores two countries, so enter either one and you’re good to go. What you’ll be doing is a secret, but there are at least 10 good reasons to visit the first one. Some people spend time at an elephant training school, a meditation retreat, the second-largest city up north (where you might find a mobile coffee shop), or on a chilled-out island. If you’re there in April you’ll catch the annual water festival. Once you cross the border, you’ll probably visit a very famous temple, but it’s big enough that you can escape the crowds. Few people have heard of this country’s second-largest city, but there you can ride the bamboo train. We can’t tell you where you’ll stay on the tour, but here are five special hotels there.
This week’s winner will get a screen full of travel apps to guide them on their way in multiple destinations, from Travelfish.org and DK Eyewitness Travel. Plus they’re receive three travel books from two of our hosts.
