The fares are cheaper this way

March 11, 2007|Vani Rangachar

Seeking the pseudo-thrill of travel? Cool Capitals, www.coolcapitals.com, might be your ticket. The site opens with a departure board listing Amsterdam, Antwerp, Vienna and Zurich. Audio plays background chatter and boarding announcements.

What's hot: Fun Flash. Click through to a city for an animated map with people and buses scurrying about. It's no good for actual navigation, but it is entertaining. My Travel Bucket lets you select hotels and restaurants.

What's not: For easy-to-read guide info, go elsewhere. Huge photos force the guidebook information to the right rail. The PDFs are highly designed -- and impossible to read.
