Top 10 Most Luxurious Holiday Ideas

Most people would count a package deal to a Greek island or even a couple of weeks in Devon as their annual holiday, but there is a more extravagant side to travel if you have the funds to pay for it. If you have ever been curious about how the obscenely wealthy let their hair down, take a look at ten of the most luxurious trips available.

The exclusive resort

The island of Bedarra lies just off the coast of Queensland in Australia and is home to a series of ‘hidden’ villas. The perfect sands and jewel-like seas of the Great Barrier Reef are only a few steps away and you can enjoy the very best in hospitality and accommodation.

The grand hotel

Las Vegas is famed for its opulent accommodation and the Mansion Hotel at MGM Grand is no exception; the facade alone is that of a stately home and there is access to both butler services and media suites.Read More »Top 10 Most Luxurious Holiday Ideas

Travel Plans for a Two-day Big Apple Experience

The sophistication of Broadway, impressive buildings, iconic landmarks, and the bustling people of New York are just some of the attractions that lure people to the Big Apple. Tourists who would like to make the most out of their short visit need to plan and prioritize their tours. Here are some suggestions for a two-day New York Vacation.

The first order of business whenever one is travelling long distance is to make sure that all the travel documents like insurance, passports or ID, etc., are in order and travel arrangements have been booked and confirmed. It would also help if tourists can familiarize themselves with the transportation and routes in New York so they can easily find their way around the city. A Big Apple vacation can start by taking a flight to JFK International Airport, the main airport in the city, followed by an AirTrain ride from JFK to Beach Subway Station, then transfer to an A-Train to Manhattan where you can find great lodgings for your visit. Before starting your tour, drop by the main tourist office where one can get a New York pass that gives access to popular attractions in the city as well as discounts in some of their dining establishments.

Boulders Beach – A Quaint Haven in Cape Town

Boulders Beach – A Quaint Haven in Cape Town

People’s perception of Africa has tremendously changed over the years mainly because it has gained prominence as a worthwhile vacation destination. Quite a number of beaches in the country beckon beach bums and wanderlusts seeking to have a good time.

Cape Town, the second most populated city in Africa next to Johannesburg, is home to many breathtaking beaches. In fact, it’s famous for its harbour; thus, it is widely known as Africa’s most popular tourist destination.

 

One of the well-known beaches in Cape Town is Boulders Beach (or Boulders Bay). It lies just around the corner from Simon’s Town. Charming and quaint are two words that may be used to describe this sheltered cove of white sand beach. Massive granite boulders are aplenty on this beach, hence, the name Boulders Beach.

While most of the beaches in Cape Town have icy waters (these being part of the Atlantic Ocean), the waters of Boulders Beach are a tad warmer (the beach being on the Indian Ocean side of the peninsula). The beach is ideal for snorkeling and sheltered swimming. If you’re the type of person who likes to have a good time but want a more laid-back atmosphere, Boulders Beach is the place to go to.

The charming appeal of the beach must emanate from Simon’s Town itself, which is a former navy seaport. What lure people to this place may perhaps be the giant boulders found along the beach that provide seclusion and utmost protection from the wind.
