It's January, which means awards season is here - high time for the About.com Readers' Choice Awards! Now you can give props to your favorite Southeast Asia hotels and attractions by giving them your vote. Southeast Asia is joining for the first time, and we're offering you the chance to tell the world about the best that Southeast Asia has to offer. (Not-so-tiny caveat: we're excluding Thailand hotels and attractions for this one, as this popular Southeast Asian country is ably covered by its own About.com Thailand Travel site.)
Nominate your favorite tourist attractions and hotels, and then cast your vote for your favorite! We begin accepting nominations for the 2012 Readers' Choice Awards on January 18; nominations end on February 15. Voting will then run from February 22 to March 21, and Readers' Choice Awards winners will be announced on March 30, 2012.
No, we don't offer any cash or trophies for the lucky winner, but isn't the warm glow of being recognized by readers of one of the world's most popular websites enough?
