The Best Neighborhoods in Mexico City – Juarez!

beautiful historic architecture in Mexico City

Like other neighborhoods in transition, Colonia (or neighborhood) Juarez (not to be confused with Ciudad Juarez) has a very diverse personality that is hard to characterize. Juarez is home to the Zona Rosa – the business and cultural hub of Mexico City’s LGBTTI community, and also to “Little Seoul,” the heart of the city’s growing Korean population. The people who live, work and play here represent the broadest cross-section of Mexico City’s population – wealthy and poor, hip and traditional, local and foreigner. Sex shops and high-end hotels can be found within steps of each other, as can pizza joints…

Best Neighborhoods in Mexico City – Condesa!

best neighborhood in Mexico City

The Condesa neighborhood combines some of the best features of Roma Norte and Polanco.   Like Polanco, Condesa is beautiful to look at with its tree-lined streets and parks, art-deco architecture, high-end bars, designer stores and boutique hotels. But, Condesa definitely shares a cool vibe with Roma Norte – its cafes, bookstores, galleries and shops attract the young professionals, students and artists who live and play in Condesa. This split personality can be linked to the fact that after decades of decline the area has been gentrified since the late 90s. There is a lot to see and do in this…

Traveling to Tokyo is one of the best traveling experiences you will ever have. Even though the area has over 2,000 square kilometers that encompass the city, the subtropical islands, and the rugged mountains, it is one of the easiest-traveled areas in the world. The city is full of pop culture blended with old Japan. No matter what your pleasure, you will find it in Tokyo, the most populous metropolis in the world.

Tips aren’t really part of the culture in Britain. You might tip a waitress in a restaurant if the service is really good, or at a push, you might tip a maid in a hotel, but it’s not something that anyone expects – I don’t know anyone who’d tip a taxi in the UK. However, in other countries, it’s very different. A tip is defined as a gift of money for performing a service or task over and above the payment for the service. This guide will help unaware Britons navigate the waters overseas when it comes to tipping abroad……

Mexico City’s Coolest Neighborhood: Roma Norte!

Post updated in October, 2016 When it comes to Mexico City, there are a lot of preconceptions and false truths. If you ask someone what they know or think about it, you’ll probably get, “dangerous, dirty, crowded”. While I myself had many doubts the first time I decided to go to Mexico City, I couldn’t have been more wrong and my initial trip was a completely eye opening experience. Mexico City is massive, and like any massive city, it has less desirable areas to visit…just like any city for that matter. Cities don’t operate without a strata of people in different…

It’s no wonder that Paris is one of the most-visited cities in Europe—in the entire world, really! Rather than rack your brains about who’s who or what’s what, though, here’s a list of places you might find vaut-tout (worthwhile, in French). Coolest Places To Grab A Drink Le Café Tournesol & Le Lock Groove (9 rue de la Gaîté, 14e, Paris) Acclaimed as one of the best cafés on rue de la Gaïté, Le Café Tournesol is definitely a vibrant and colorful experience to say the least! Its brick interior bumps with soul, funk and electro music, while the outside…

As you have sifted through the options for your impending summer holiday this year, you have decided that the time is right to finally explore the islands of Greece.  With the economy finally on the mend in this beleaguered country, the overall mood in the country is beginning to look up, but prices remain low as the race to bring back visitors to the country is well underway. A quick review of a map of Greece has shown you that this quest has become far more complex than you initially anticipated, as there are well over a thousand isles for…
