SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 21, 2014) - CES 2014 in Las Vegas poured on the wows and the wants from cars that drive themselves, to robots that clean your windows. But travelers will want to know about such must-pack items as Aero-Tray that maximizes tight space in economy class to allow passengers to work or sleep. Or convenient gadgets that pull in and pump up available Wifi for stronger, speedier portable connections. Travel-Intel was on the scene scoping, scooping, checking and collecting the latest must-have gadgets for travelers for a Top Ten list that tells all.
The latest issue of Travel-Intel also looks at two recent travel surveys that offer insight into how often Americans plan to travel this year and where they may be heading (hint:two vacations is the sweet spot and Las Vegas tops the list).
Because Americans love Sin City so much, Travel-Intel delves into what's new in Las Vegas in hotels and attractions. The city that is always reinventing itself is doing it again with the tallest observation wheel in the world -- for now.
And for those who love to combine luck with a little dim sum, the latest issue of Tours.com's Travel-Intel gives the run down of cool things to see and do (and taste) in Las Vegas during the upcoming Chinese New Year next month, the Year of the Horse.
Finally, travel to Mexico can be accommodated to perfection via three boutique villa resorts offered through Kurtz-Ahlers & Associates' exclusive collection. Cuixmala, Hacienda de San Antonio, and Imanta are three very different luxury vacation spots that each provide a singular flair and answer the calls for privacy, service, setting and style.
These are just some of the stories to be found in the latest Travel-Intel. The weekly travel industry news channel from Tours.com reaches more than 100,000 sellers of travel in the U.S. and Canada and is also posted online.
