NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - February 05, 2013) - Premier Traveler's Ally Miola talks with Chad Michael Murray, the former teen heartthrob-turned-leading actor, philanthropist and business traveler, for a one-on-one interview.
Premier Traveler magazine's February/March issue is filled with excitement: a recap of the Best of 2012 award winners, details on the exciting online auction items up for bidding through early April, a contrarian view of social media and a look at a side of Amsterdam that may surprise readers.
Actor, author and philanthropist Chad Michael Murray has an off-the-cuff talk with Editor-in-Chief Ally Miola just days before the February 1 opening of his latest movie, "The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia" (showing in select cities), and his February 13 debut as Officer Dave Mendoza on the TNT series "Southland." In this interview, a surprisingly calm, upbeat and down-to-earth "Hollywood hyphenate" reveals a "bad boy" travel moment and talks about the charities close to his heart.
Meanwhile, social media is discussed from dramatically different points of view: From the stance of hotels and airlines attempting to gain travelers' favor, and the shockingly contrarian responses from Premier Traveler readers, the veteran globetrotters on the receiving end.
This issue also visits various destinations around the world, including Amsterdam, where Janet Forman cajoles secrets of what's to come from boldface design names in this irreverent trading town. Jimmy Im provides an insider's take on ever-evolving Toronto, while Jeff Heilman explores meeting spaces in Sydney, and Ally Miola escapes to Tanzania for a memorable adventure in the wilds of Africa.
As always, this issue offers up Insider Reviews of hotels and airlines -- some superb, like the new Andaz Napa, and some decidedly not, such as an account of the kind of nightmare hotel experiences nearly every frequent traveler encounters -- as well as hotel, airline and loyalty program updates and the popular Travel Bites, Cheers, Tech Talk and Joel's Corner.
Until April 3, readers can bid on dazzling prizes, such as two business-class tickets on Turkish Airlines, South African Airways and Asiana; two BusinessFirst tickets on United Airlines; two First Class tickets on Virgin America; a three-night stay at Meadowood Napa Valley; a four-night stay at any property under the Small Luxury Hotel worldwide umbrella; and a half a million Priority Club Rewards points. Since generous travel industry sponsors are contributing more prizes every day, readers who want to help Ronald McDonald House New York, which supports families facing pediatric cancer, while snagging an unparalleled deal will find the continually updated list of items at premiertravelerusa.com.
