It’s the perfect time to beat the crowd and go to Japan to ski in Nagano. Outside the city is Hakuba, in the Northern Alps. It’s an exclusive destination for versatile skiing. After a day on the slopes, do not hesitate to visit one of the local onsens – start at Shirahone Onsen, with its milky white water loaded with magnesium and calcium – and fill up with bowls of soba noodles at buckwheat famous in this part of Japan. As for the night, book a room in the minimalist KAI Alps, a draw for its view of the Hida Mountains and the chance to snuggle around an irori or sunken hearth, the local equivalent a campfire. Nagano and its surroundings can also be easily spotted in Tokyo: fly over one of the many Japan Airlines flights connecting the United States and Tokyo, then take the 90-minute train to Nagano.
In South-East India, like a drop of water in the immensity of the ocean, Sri Lanka stands proudly. Like a phoenix, he is reborn from his ashes and leaves behind thirty years of civil war and a painful memory due to the tsunami of 2008. Today, it is a nation that opens to the journey, ready to go before and proud of its cultural diversity. It welcomes visitors in an exotic and exotic environment. Tea plantations, sweet aroma of spices, secular temples and hanging gardens are just some of the images that come to mind in the evocation of ancient Ceylon.
It’s a whole new way to discover California to be in harmony with whales, making this spot one of the best places to travel in January, as humpback whales and grays migrate to warm waters of the Sea of Cortez to mate and give birth. A counter-current trip down to the eastern tip of the peninsula your base: it is wilder and much less manicured than the five-star refuge to the south, with dirt roads, a slower pace and superb beaches and fishing. The area, known as East Cape, is now carefully developed with a focus on upscale accommodation. You can already book a room at the new Four Seasons Costas Palmas, which opened in October, while an Aman outpost is underway, due to debut next year.
The Austrian village of Leogang is the little brother of the renowned resort of Saalbach-Hinterglemm. Leogang offers some advantages over these famous resorts. Tourism does not play a role as important as in the rest of the area, this village has retained its authentic and romantic character. Accommodations are much cheaper and the local slopes are the snowiest of the whole area. I advise you to book at Puradies – Hotel & Chalet Resort which has been renovated for the 2017 season and offers a breathtaking view of Birnhorn.
The city of Tulum in Mexico is in the state of Quintana Roo. It is located more precisely on the Caribbean coast of the Yucatan Peninsula. Visit Tulum is one of the things to do during a road trip in Yucatan. If you plan to go there, a walk through the hotel Azulik is required. It is truly a timeless interlude in its 48 villas nestled in the heart of the lush vegetation, between the Caribbean Sea and the jungle. A “reconnection” with nature and avant-garde local populations.
