Hong Kong is the New York of Asia: dynamic, exotic, and a barrage of noises, colours and unique experiences. Most of all, it’s fun. On a quest for somewhere exciting for our 13th wedding anniversary, this vibrant city ticked all our boxes.
To make sure the celebration was truly special, we took things to dizzying heights and checked into the “highest hotel in the world” – The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong. Occupying the top floors of the International Commerce Centre, directly above Kowloon station, this 312-room luxury hotel reaches 490 metres above sea level, and is an iconic part of the Kowloon skyline. An elevator that’s apparently the fastest in Asia gets you to the top in less than a minute.
The first internationally branded five-star hotel in Ha Long Bay, Wyndham Legend Halong Bay sits on the coastline of Vietnam's Bai Chay with stunning views of the World Heritage-listed Ha Long Bay and Bai Chay Bridge.
The Wyndham Legend Halong Bay offers convenient access to Ha Long downtown and surrounding attractions, including the Quang Ninh Museum and Library, Halong Markets and Visit floating villages. A highlight of staying here, though, is the view from the colourful cable car leading to the one of the highest sun wheels in the world, and the ever-changing colours of the Bai Chay Bridge.
The Masaai Mara is one of Kenya’s main drawcards, a reserve that stretches 1,510 square kilometers and raises 1,500-2,170 meters above sea level. Add the conservancies and the area is at least twice the size.
Dubbed one of Africa’s Greatest Wildlife Reserves, Maasai Mara is possibly the world’s top safari big game viewing eco-system. After a day of game viewing of some of Africa’s most unique wildlife on the stunning backdrop of the open plains, retire to a camp that is just as stunning.
A part of the Great Plains Conservation Group, Mara Expedition Camp is located on the banks of the Ntiakitiak River, within a private and secluded site in Kenya’s famous Maasai Mara Game Reserve.
