3 Luxurious Apartments in Lisbon for Travelers

Lisbon, standing proudly on the banks of the Tajo River, is a city rich in history and tradition. The old neighborhoods, the intricately designed cobblestone streets, the tile covered façades of the buildings and the mournful sound of Fado make Lisbon a romantic and enchanting city. However, for many it remains one of Europe’s lesser known capitals. Among the most emblematic sights in Lisbon is the Belem Tower, located in the Tajo River and was the point of departure for many travelers. Close by is the Jeronimos Monastery, built during the 16th century which is considered to be one of the finest examples of Manueline architecture. Other points of interest are the scenic lookout of Santa Luzia and the castle of Sao Jorge which offer spectacular views of the city, the Praça do Comercio for a spot of shopping or people watching, visit the modern buildings of Parque das Naçoes or waner around Convento do Carmo.

The Reason Why Independent Backpackers Should Go On A Cruise

The Reason Why Independent Backpackers Should Go On A Cruise

We can easily hear the screams of independent backpackers whenever they’re being told they should go on a cruise. “Cruises are not the real travel experience and you won’t get the chance to experience the local culture.” This is probably just one of the many reasons why independent backpackers tend to skip cruises on their travel bucket lists. For these solo travelers, they considered cruises as “fake travel ideas” for those people who just want to pretend that they are traveling to various places without the need of moving around too much. In all honesty, at some point, we do agree with this though. However, we do have reasons why independent backpackers should go on a cruise : An Adult Playground On The Sea Yes, cruises are not travel experience because you don’t get the chance to explore new cultures or even dine at the the same place as the locals do. Matter of fact, you are going to see the same faces almost everyday for a few weeks...

A Sun Seeker’s Guide to Menorca

A Sun Seeker’s Guide to Menorca

The idea of jetting off to a beautiful island for some much-needed sunshine isn’t exactly original, but let’s be honest, it’s a tried and trusted classic that isn’t likely to fall out of fashion anytime soon. Personally, I jump at any chance to hit the beach, and at the moment Menorca’s the destination that’s occupying my daydreams. The beaches here are utterly gorgeous and I’m going to talk about some of my favourites in a moment, but I’ll let you in on a secret – they’re not the only reason that Menorca’s such an amazing place for seaside holidays. For me, what makes Menorca stand out from the other Balearic Islands is the fact that it’s much less developed and, generally, much less crowded. So, you can enjoy that classic Spanish sunshine without having to battle for a decent spot on the sand. I should probably add that Menorca does tend to be a degree or two cooler than the other Balearics, but to be honest, for the sake...

It helps, however, to have a helipad on your roof.That is, of course, the case with the venerable Burj Al Arab hotel in the flagship city of the United Arab Emirates. If Dubai is the gateway to the country, the extraordinary luxury hotel is, in some fashion, the gateway to Dubai. The now-famous silhouette of the architectural marvel was, for many, the prelude to the city’s skyline salvo. Others have come in the Burj Al Arab’s wake of course: the Burj Khalifa, Princess Tower, 23 Marina, Elite Residence, Almas Tower, and so on. But make no mistake: the Burj Al Arab is the bedrock symbol of Dubai’s renaissance.The Pinnacle of Luxury And it is not mere hyperbole to assert that the property is the pinnacle of luxury hospitality. The amenity list is duly impressive: the...
