The month of November came and went but the frost of Mongolia remains.

1. The $77,000 Trip Heard Round the World: What 1,000,000 Points Gets You

You say you hate applying for a visa. You say you want to go to China. You say, out loud, “Oh I will just utilize the 72-hour visa-free transit option.” To you I say, flyer beware.

5. Pho 2000 Saigon: President Clinton’s Bad Dining Advice

Pho 2000 is milking the publicity of President Clinton’s visit by investing their time in marketing not manufacturing. This is evident by the patrons of Pho 2000 of whom none are locals and by the employees who meekly serve bowl after bowl while their faces deliver another message- eat somewhere else.

7. IGLOO-GER: The Helsinki-Ulaanbaatar Trip Report

If you’re on the IATA website wondering why you can’t locate the airport codes for IGLOO and GER it is because nobody flies to these frozen locales.
