Subject: A week of R &R in the Orient
Hi Ziners:

I hope that you are all enjoying your summer (or if you are in the Southern Hemisphere - your winter).

The question that I have relates to finding a safe, one-week luxury resort-type vacation in the Orient. An American friend of mine who was visiting recently told me that the U.S. State Dept. has published advisories against Americans going to many of the vacation spots traditionally enjoyed by Americans going aboard - apparently there is concern about kidnapping. Since my friend's husband is scheduled to be in Hong Kong on business in October (and she is accompanying him), she is interested in receiving suggestions of places to try for a week of total leisure.

Your help would be most welcome.

All the best, Minna
