Pretty in Puerto Rico

Written by

With a Caribbean vibe and American appeal, Puerto Rico is numero uno with travelers from the mainland who can do without the hassles of traveling with passports and visas. Plenty of beaches, bars, city hotels and seaside resorts have earned the US territory kudos as an affordable getaway with deals galore during the summer season. A big hit with foodies, menus are a culinary travelogue of Spanish, African, Caribbean, American and Taino Indian influences. From chefs preparing “nuevo criollo” or island cuisine with a fusion twist to mom-and-pops who ladle stews into big bowls, a variety of eateries showcase the fresh bounty from papayas and plantains to cilantro and coconut.

loving luxury in Caribbean

Written by

All about upscale indulgences, hyper-attentive service and pampering over price points, vacationing like a VIP is a grand guilty pleasure. Delivering above expectations, luxury in the Caribbean runs the gamut from personal chefs on private islands and butlers who pour afternoon tea to seaside suites that leave no stone unturned. “Our region continues to deliver by embellishing our natural paradise with offerings that easily exceed the standards of elegance,” said Beverly Nicholson-Doty, chairman of the Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO). “The Caribbean has much to offer in terms of luxury, even in an economy that is making a slow return to a steady state.“

New Caledonia is for Nature Lovers

Written by

New Caledonia is an overseas territory of France, a rare jewel set in the Pacific Ocean. From coast to coast, New Caledonia stretches over 300 miles, passing through the archipelago of the Loyalty Islands. To give a sense of New Caledonia’s location, it is east of Australia, north of New Zealand, south of the Equator, and just west of Fiji and Vanuatu. Uniting the archipelago is a coral reef, second in size only to the Great Barrier Reef. The reef is UNESCO designated, and is an area of exceptional natural beauty, featuring a unique diversity of coral and fish species. It surrounds an astonishing lagoon, which hides its own preserved ecosystem.

China's Silk Road Region

Written by

China’s Silk Road is as popular today as it was when the route began. Designed for trade and cultural use, it runs throughout the Eurasian continent, extending and connecting the Western and Eastern civilizations from China to as far as
the Mediterranean.

With over 6,000 miles of Silk Road to explore, the road’s moniker originated from the Chinese silk that was traded through this route from as early as the Han Dynasty, beginning in 206 BC. Over time, as the route grew more popular, even the Great Wall of China was extended to protect this valuable route of traffic, peppered with the likes of traders, merchants, pilgrims, monks, soldiers and nomads, all seeking something that a trip along the Silk Road offered.

Korea, Asia’s Secret Country of Cool

Written by

First-timers and repeat visitors will be mesmerized by Korea’s transformation, from a nose-to-the-grindstone economic miracle during grim, post-war days to an innovator, inventor and savvy global brand maker and marketer, leaping as it were, from staple fare of fermented kimchi (cabbage swilling in hot spices) to an expanding roster of restaurants along trendy Garosugil lined with international cuisines and wine bars.
