EP.4 – Certainly, all the experts talk about the world of tomorrow. , who knows when we can take the plane and travel with family, with our friends or as a couple. In a few weeks in September, end of 2020, maybe 2021… Difficult to give details, but one thing is certain, our dreams have no restrictions. Here’s a series of articles that answers this simple question: what will be my next trip? here is my answer. Feel free to comment by giving me your next destination.
After the 450 billion yen investissment, the Daxing airport has opened just five years after construction began, Designed by the late starchitect Zaha Hadid, it’s the city’s second major hub, and is aimed at easing congestion at Beijing Capital International Airport in the northeast. It’s a fine incentive to visit the city right now, where cooler winter temperatures—expect them to hover around freezing for much of the month—tamp down the smog, which can stifle a summer visit. All the main attractions, including the Forbidden City and the Great Wall, remain open alongside plenty of winter-only sights, like several superb ice-skating spots where you can also try ice-bikes, bumper cars and even ice-rickshaws. (Try Qianhai, overlooking Drum Tower, or Zizhuyuan Park, where there’s a speed skating section for any would-be pros.) Take a day trip to the nearby Huaibei International Ski Resort, too, which has impressive runs plus views of the Great Wall.
Two years ago, little Saint Tony Barts felt the power of two devastating hurricanes. Yet today, two of the most popular luxury hole holes on the island have finally been reopened. The Eden Rock, a 37-room oceanfront hotel, officially welcomes its guests, as does the 23-room Hotel Barrière Le Carl Gustaf, located on a hill in the middle of the paved capital, Gustavia. The month of December is of course the high season of the island, especially during the last two weeks, filled with celebrities on the boats and in the villas. On the weekends before Christmas, however, you can shop for the 10th edition of the Magic of Christmas Village in Gustavia: expect crafts, snacks and a sun-scorched Santa or father’s visit Christmas, as the locals would say.
You ask me why Copenhagen? Because the city alone represents all the symbolism of Christmas: between the gardens of Tivoli, this 176-year-old green space is decorated with 1,000 trees and 70,000 ornaments, plus the on-site restaurants offer their own version of Julefrokost , or Christmas lunch. There are also countless Christmas markets, such as Kongens Nytorv, the main square or the daylong luxury market along Elmegade in Nørrebro. Finally, I invite you to visit the sauna Badehuset, located in the hippie enclave of Christiania.
