You have to love Log-On for its ultra-handy travel gear. Here are a few items from its holiday product line we’d like to pack in our bag for our next trip:
Available between now and the end of August, the deal also includes a buffet breakfast for two at Café bord de Mer, the hotel’s international all-day dining restaurant. The 325-room nautical-themed hotel also offers bootcamp classes, yoga, a day spa, a gorgeous pool, and—obviously tapping into the lucrative wedding market here—a sparkling white chapel that wouldn’t look out of place in Bali.
DB’s newest attraction, Auberge Discovery Bay, is currently offering a rock-bottom room rate of just $1,240 per night to celebrate its opening.
The “CX Holidays Signature World Collection 2013” is made up of a host of themed tours, suitable for just about every kind of traveler.
You could go truffle hunting in Piedmont or run a marathon at Mount Fuji. If you want to learn something on your holiday, there are also regularly scheduled trips hosted by notable experts. Coming up later this year is a photography trip to Beijing with National Geographic photographer Ron Yue (October 24-27) as well as a culinary tour from Beijing to Myanmar with food critic Chua Lam.
Cathay Pacific’s CX Holidays has unrolled a new lineup of tailored travel experiences to get you firmly off the beaten track once and for all.
Though getting down and dirty in the party area of Kuta might be a draw for some travelers, the Intercon’s secluded grounds around Jimbaran Bay are a relaxing way to experience the island without straying too far from the action.
Bali—been there, done that? Before you move on to the next island paradise, you might want to consider a stay at the InterContinental Bali Resort, one of the most beautiful resorts in Asia (seriously, it’s a nominee in this year’s World Luxury Hotel Awards).
Renowned local painter and gongbi expert Wilson Shieh comes to Osage SoHo for a four-week "residency." Passersby will be able to see how his work is created directly, from the drafting stages to the final product. The exhibit also showcases some of his most recent works, including drawings of famous artists and art assistants and acrylic paintings with political themes.
Welsh soprano Catrin Aur, named “Welsh Singer of the Year” in 2009 by the Morriston Orpheus Choir Supporter’s Association, will be making her debut solo performance in Hong Kong before jetting off to perform at the Royal Albert Hall in London. Join Aur and the City Chamber Orchestra of Hong Kong for a night of Italian opera arias by Bellini, Donizetti, Verdi, Puccini and Cilea.
This exhibit's five artists are from all over the world and work in different media, but all use light in their artwork. Wander through the gallery and you'll see Kacey Wong and Konstantin Bessmertny's neon sculptures, Faiza Butt and Jimmy Chan's (pictured) illuminated paintings and photography, and Lee Sang-hyun's video art.
Club G Plus went through a facelift lately. The popular club's new all-white decor looks more elegant and demure, but the music is loud as ever. The dance floor is packed any night of the week, and international big names play here on a regular basis.
Nice Club covers a space of 450 square meters, which is divided into four different areas for clubbing, lounging, wine sipping and VIP, each with a distinctive design concept.
Malt Fun is the newest addition to Shanghai’s whisky bars. Its whisky selection is not the biggest in town (only more than 80 varieties for the moment), but what lacks in diversity is made up by its size and warm atmosphere. Co-owner Chris from Taiwan used to work in an established whisky bar in Taipei, hence her passion and knowledge about this specific type of spirit. Have fun with the iPad menu, even though some of the rare bottles are not listed in it, such as Ardbeg 1977 and Glenfiddich Snow Phoenix.
