Vacationist: Las Vegas, Bangkok, Costa Rica
City slickers, take note: This week’s Vacationist deals include hotel stays in two of our favorite cities—Las Vegas and Bangkok—for less than $100 a night. If that doesn’t lure you in, we have other tricks (and treats!) up our sleeve: In both cities, current temperatures hover in the 70s and 80s, and, in Las Vegas, this weekend brings the inaugural Halloween parade. Dare we mention again that Bangkok ranked as the no. 1 city in this year’s World’s Best Awards survey?
Not to worry, however, if you’d prefer to leave the crowds behind. For a quiet beachfront getaway there’s 44% off at Hotel Punta Islita, on Costa Rica’s Playa Samara. Read on for more details, and of course, become a Vacationist member now.
