Northbank is the place to be. There’s plenty happening in this funky end of the city once home to Melbourne Fish Markets. Whilst it it’s not the luxury end of town, it is developing an inner city chic and it’s the perfect place to stay if you would like some comfort without a hefty price tag.

Two of the world’s most cosmopolitan cities come together with the opening of a new restaurant – Sette – at the Bulgari Hotel in London. Bringing authentic Italian food from New York City’s Scarpetta restaurant family, Sette offers an exceptional dinning and social experience. Given its location within the ultra-luxe Buglari Hotel, my expectations of the restaurant are set high. And thankfully, Sette did not disappoint.
“Domo arigato,” I say to the taxi driver who smiles, bows twice and says “Hai. Hai.” I wheel my bag along a pathway by the Ooi river just over the Togetsukyo bridge heaving with crowds of tourists who clot in Kyoto’s Arashiyama district. Some are in rent-a-kimino taking selfies, others are in school uniform giggling and smiling and then there’s the occasional western tourist biting into a Miffy shaped donut.
This side of the bridge is much quieter. My quest is to find the private boat ramp for the Hoshinoya Kyoto. I see the sign just ahead written in English and Japanese and stop and breathe a sigh of relief. ‘No. No. This way,’ says a Japanese man with a camera hung around his neck gesturing downstream. I smile. Perhaps I should have donned a pair of Blahniks and a flowy Camilla for this journey. “You have to be a very special Japanese person to stay at the Hoshinoya,” my taxi driver confided before he dropped me off.

The iconic red windmill on the corner of boulevard de Clichy and place Blanche in Montmartre has housed the secrets of Paris for 130 years. Painters, writers, and artists have been inspired for generations by all that goes on inside the walls of the Moulin Rouge theatre. A night at the Moulin Rouge is more than a great cabaret show, it’s a night to remember.
Although being a vegan and a traveller has become much easier, sometimes it can still be a challenge finding great vegan food and eco accommodations. Thankfully there are places like Tulum in Mexico. This beach town is a haven for vegans, yogis and eco-warriors.
Albury and Wodonga can no longer be overlooked. Nestled along the seductive curves of the mighty Murray, the twin cities of Albury and Wodonga are beating the winter blues and reinventing the term ‘country cool’.
goodbye to the winter blues with Sydney’s top five luxury experiences.
Sydney is just as alive and vibrant in
winter as it is in summer. From private bridge climbs to igloos by the harbour,
Sydney pulls out all the stops in winter. Time to swap the bikini for a coat
and experience the cooler side of Sydney.
The stage is dark, and Sydney Opera House’s Concert Hall is dim. The waiting audience is ready to travel back to 1961, to time of beehives and fashionable elegance, and all that is Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
