There's nothing quite like a holiday in Southeast Asia to get over an Olympic marathon, so with that in mind, here's our round-up on deals we've come across between sporting highlights. There's another Travelfish Guide sale, photographic courses by Photography School Asia, discounted tours from Gecko Travel and a bunch of hotel deals from Hotels2Thailand. For more information, read on. Travelfish Guide sale
We all love to travel, and to help you travel even further, we're offering a buy one, get one free Travelfish Guide sale, but there's a catch: The free guide can't be for a destination in the same country. How's that for a fine excuse to continue travelling. All you need to do is buy one through the Travelfish Guides section of the site, then send us an email to travelfishguides@travelfish.org telling us the following and we'll credit it to you faster than a Michael Phelps 100m. The sale finishes, along with the Olympics on August 24.

a) Your Travelfish member name;
b) The name of the guide you purchased; and
c) Which extra guide you'd like
