The western Pacific island of Guam is a paradise for golfers. Several locations and course difficulties are designed by renowned golfing greats to challenge your skills and professionalism. Courses in Guam have breathtaking scenery and most offer 18 holes and are equipped with pro and specialty shops. Beautiful sea views, gorges, rugged landscape and coastline surround them all. Famous golf course designers such as Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player have helped create some of the courses, all of which are no more than 20 minutes away by car from any of Guam's hotels. A four-day-two-night package to Guam is now available from HK$2,488 which includes hotel accommodation and roundtrip ticket. www.guamusatour.com


Vanguard offer expanded: US Airways has expanded its ticket acceptance policy for passengers whose travel plans were disrupted as a result of Vanguard Airlines' cessation of service, and will honour tickets issued to Vanguard Airlines passengers who seek alternative accommodations by September 27. US Airways will accept tickets held by Vanguard Airlines customers for travel between the originally ticketed cities and on the date originally scheduled. A Vanguard customer must present proof of a ticketed reservation on Vanguard by presenting an electronic ticket confirmation letter, electronic ticket receipt, paper ticket or itinerary card at a US Airways airport ticket counter or US Airways city ticket office. Seats may not be available for all dates or from all cities. If seats are not available on the original days of travel, US Airways will see if alternatives are available, within reason. There will be no additional fare amount or handling fee charged to Vanguard customers whose travel can be accommodated on US Airways, although certain security and other airport fees may apply.


Angola warning update: The United States has dropped a long-standing warning that US citizens stay away from Angola. A travel warning from the State Department, updated to reflect the end of the civil war in Angola this year, said the department 'warns US citizens of the potential danger of travel to the Republic of Angola. The April signing of a cease-fire agreement marked the end of 25 years of civil conflict. Nevertheless, crime, a severely deteriorated infrastructure and other legacies of the war, including land mines, continue to inhibit the free and safe movement of people throughout Angola'. The previous warning said US citizens should not go to Angola at all.


Glacier getaway: The historic hotels and lodges operating throughout the 560,000 hectares of Montana's Glacier National Park offer magnificent mountain views and variety of activities. The most important step in decreasing unnecessary fees is to book reservations through the National Park Service's official hotel and transportation concessionaire, Glacier Park. See exciting terrain on all- or half-day tours throughout Glacier and Waterton Lakes National Parks. While away the hours fishing or capture the park's wildlife and terrain on a photographic tour. See where Franklin Roosevelt gave one of his famous fireside chats. For more information about accommodation, special packages and activities, visit www.nps.gov, or www.glacierparkinc.com
