I go to www.asiatravel.com as a first guide. And then, go to individual hotel sites, plus other travel sites to see.

You will be surprised, many a time, the hotel sites offer the best pricing.

oh oh...and I like to go www.tripadvisor.com to look out for pp's opinions on the hotel first. Will take those advice with a pinch of salt - but better something known than total unknowns (esp travelling with 2 kids in tow).

wotif will include credit card promotion if any and for some of the dates & hotels, they will have special low rate or free extras. These are great bargains. Else the price would be pretty standard.

Do check the commission / admin fee and cancellation charges when booking via website.
