Travel Trails By Martin B. Deutsch for 1967
December 1: TOKYO--THE NOT-SO-MYSTERIOUS EAST
Big and sprawling, with more than 11,000,000 inhabitants, Tokyo is the largest city in the world. Its traffic jams are legendary, the rush hours maddening and the taxi drivers incapable of caution. Dining in the world's largest city is a splendid experience, whether you favor the local delicacies or Chinese or Western cuisine. And with 50,000 clubs, bars and cabarets, the nightlife quotient is unmatched.
November 2: ISRAEL AFTER THE SIX-DAY WAR
Like oil and water, war and pleasure travel usually doesn't mix. A region that has seen fighting normally sees few, if any, tourists for months and sometimes ever years. The vacation traveler is naturally inclined to give the "hot spot" a wide berth. None of these accepted ground rules applies to Israel, however. The country was fully prepared for an immediate resumption of the tourists influx that had so abruptly ceased during the Six-Day War.
October 1: ATHENS--A PLACE IN THE SUN
Athens is smaller than Rome--home to fewer historical and archeological remnants, less populated and less frantic. But you can relax here: The air is pleasant, the traffic and the tempers seem more manageable and the night life and entertainment are on a simpler, less polished level. Good weather is always a bonus, but it is just one factor among the many that combine to make up the personality of this great city.
September 1: WINSTON-SALEM , A SINGLE-DESTINATION DELIGHT
Sometimes, it pays to set your vacation sights on a single destination instead of on an entire state, or on a corner of the country, or on something as broad as Europe or the Pacific. We chose a decidedly localized destination for this month's journey, one that's not only a little bit different, but also extremely worthwhile.
August 1: GO-GO IN YUGO
We were taken with the relaxed and open attitude of the many Yugoslavs we met during a recent visit to this most capitalistic of all Communist countries. Absent any outward sign of political tension or repression, we felt comfortable in no time. And our reaction is hardly unique: Hordes of tourists have been pouring into the country whose attractions include the most magnificent coastlines in the world, a modern metropolis, resorts piled upon resorts--and prices that don't come any lower.
July 1: PAN-AM OLYMPICS IN THE CANDIAN 'PAMPAS'
You can watch field hockey, as well as twenty-three other exciting sports, at the upcoming Fifth Annual Pan-American Games in Winnipeg, the handsome, thriving Canadian host city known for its warmth and friendliness. And beyond the undisputed appeal of the "Olympics for the Western Hemisphere," you might also consider Manitoba as the headquarters for additional vacation objectives.
June 1: WELCOME TO OREGON
If you head for the Beaver State this summer, we guarantee that you'll have a high-spirited holiday. We've mapped out a two- or three-week driving tour that will introduce the state's highlights without wearing you out. Recreation and sightseeing are the watchwords, dovetailing with Oregon's reputation as a place where you can "relax…in a state of excitement."
May 1: BIG BUDGET BONANZA: LOWER FARES ON FOREIGN FLIGHTS
So you want to go abroad? You have been scheming and dreaming for years to flee the comfortable confines of North America for a holiday. Well, 1967 may be the year. Why? The international airlines have come up with the lowest airfares in history and the price is right. It will cost you no more this year (and possibly less) to fly from New York to London than, say, from New York to Los Angeles. A New York-London tour trip, on a scheduled jet, for $230! It's real.
April 1: DISCOVER MEXICO BY CAR
We can't think of a better place to vacation this summer, whether you've been there before or not. And the most comfortable way to see the country is by family car or a quick flight to the capital city with a rented buggy awaiting your arrival. We've mapped out three exciting highway itineraries designed for a relaxing, yet stimulating two- or three-week holiday.
March 1: UTAH: CROSSROADS OF THE WEST
Sometimes referred to as the "Crossroads of the West," Utah is a sprawling, square-shaped territory that is probably the most underrated holiday haven on the mainland. Let us try to fill the numerous gaps in vacation-related lore that exist about the "Beehive State."
February 1: RHODES: A HOLIDAY HEAVEN FOR GENTS WHO PREFER BLONDES
The matchless Greek island of Rhodes is currently experiencing the most exciting and eye-pleasing invasion in its long and romantic history. The symbol of this conquering army is the bikini. This scant, scintillating uniform is amply filled by thousands of lovely Scandinavian gals who descend upon Rhodes during the summer months, completely dominating the scene and scenery.
January 1: CELEBRATING CANADA'S CENTENNIAL
The long-awaited start of the country's Centennial Year and Confederation Day will mark exactly 100 years to the day when four provinces got together to set up shop as a nation. Canada is extending a warm and sincere invitation from today's roster of ten provinces and two northern territories to travel across the border to join in the fabulous festivities.
