    The Maze Inn

    I would never have thought that I will ever be in a Favela, not even imagined sleeping there. But the beautiful thing about life is, that things just happen. Even before I visited my friends Bru and Andi in Brazil they had chatted about a hostel in Rio de Janeiro, that is located on top of a Favela with a splendid view on the city and the sugarloaf.

    Okuhida Hot Spring Resort

    Okuhida is a beautiful mountain with so many things to do and so many places to see. It is not a typical sightseeing spot for foreigners, but it's more of a place many Japanese people visit when they want to spend some relaxing time with friends.

  • Victoria and Alfred Hotel, Cape Town

    Victoria and Alfred Hotel, Cape Town

    A hotel with the best ever view you could possibly ever wish for. While preparing for going to Cape Town, I obviously wanted to stay somewhere with a Table Mountain view. It is called such because of the clouds rolling across the top of the mountain, which looks like a table cloth. A lot of the hotels advertised "partial Table View", but in reality, you would have to hang out by the window with the possibility of a broken neck to see even a glimpse of this majestic mountain.

    The Stevie G. Hotel

    Why Stevie G.? Maybe you already know why, because the owner loves this club which is based in Liverpool, Merseyside. So he named it after the current captain of the squad, Steven Gerrard also known as "Stevie G". This hotel is located on the highlands of Bandung so there's a bit of a mountain chill there. It's also very unique because it has 24 rooms and each room features unique interiors. Now let's begin the tour.

    At night, you might hear howler monkeys, all kind of birds and all kind of insect sounds. The advantage of staying here is the proximity to the Archaeological Zone of Palenque (Mayan ruins) where you could spend a beautiful sunny day walking through this amazing place.

    Ask any local, and perhaps the occasional tourist about Marina Bay Sands and chances are, they'll associate this place with the famous casino establishment. While the casino in MBS is its main attraction, the peripheral landmarks within its vicinity deserve attention too.

    There's no other place that best reflects the mystery and charm of Istanbul more than the Kybele Hotel. I consider it as a jewel box, filled with treasures.

    The trailer of The Shining, that is of course my favorite film of all time, is my favorite trailer of all time. The trailer lasts for 1 minute and 30 seconds, in a still shot of blood pouring out of the elevators' doors while the credit is scrolling up.

    Sky Experience Adventure at Crown Regency Hotel

    What I love about Cebu is that every time I come home, the place has always something new to offer: a new mall, new restaurant, new hangout, new beach hideaway, and new friends. No wonder travelers simply can't get enough of the Queen City of the South, making Cebu the most visited city in the country.

    La Mamounia - Oasis of Beauty

    La Mamounia - the eye candy of Marrakech. After a day spent wandering around dusty Medina and souqs, it was still too early to return to our hotel so I suggested we check out the only Art Deco building in town - Hotel La Mamounia. I am a big fan of Art Deco style in architecture, so for me it was a must.
