Avoid At ALL Costs: These Airlines Offer The Worst Legroom And Amenities In ECONOMY…

How low can you go? We all love a great flight deal, but there's a point at which you've gotta say "mercy". While some airlines offering great deals have the biggest and widest seats, with top notch wifi and power ports, others offer seats which may or may not have been previously installed as torture devices in North Korean prisons. Here are the airlines and planes you want to avoid, no matter how good the deal...(Continue Reading)...

Hotel Review: Testing Out The #1 Resort In All Of BALI- The Five Star VICEROY Ubud…

To be #1 at anything, anywhere is no small feat. To be the number one ranked resort, in a country where tourism is their #1 industry, and resorts are everywhere- that's something special. On a recent trip to Bali we decided to see if the #1 ranked resort in Ubud, and a constant winner of Condé Nast Traveler awards lived up to the hype- and trust us there's LOTS of hype surrounding the Viceroy Ubud, so expectations were high...(Continue Reading)...

A 360° Look At Etihad’s (AMAZING) First Class Apartment On The Airbus A380…

Etihad uses the branding "Flying Reimagined" to describe their in flight offerings. What an incredibly pretentious and bold statement. Etihad are the only ones reimagining the flying experience? Really? But then you step onto an Etihad A380, and your doubts are met with utter silence-it's real. Etihad has reimagined flying, and the results are an extrasensory experience of delight...(Continue Reading)...

Private Immigration Suite?! Here’s What It’s Like To Experience A VIP Arrival In SINGAPORE…

We've all heard the term (and aspired to be) VIP. At Singapore Changi Airport, there is no such thing. There is however CIP, and you'll soon realize that sometimes CIP>VIP. Away from the traditional airport experience we've all come to know, sits a heavenly oasis for commercially important passengers, and if you've got some spare change, you can be a CIP too...(Continue Reading)...

Like Legroom? These Airlines Offer The Best Experience In Long Haul ECONOMY…

You'll really enjoy our new slimline seats. Customers have told us that they felt our economy seats had far too much padding, and they just didn't know what to do with all that extra space between their knees and the seat in front of them, so listening to customer feedback, we've enhanced our economy cabin to make it feel like a video game where you torture people, only we've also taken away your seat back televisions, so no video games after all. Yeah. Amazingly, a few airlines haven't yet decided to "enhance" their economy cabin, so if you're looking for the very best legroom, seat power and comfort, you'll do well to choose these airlines and planes...(Continue Reading)...

A 360° Look At Qatar Airways AWARD WINNING Business Class Experience…

It's one thing to win awards from a bunch of critics. It's another matter entirely to win the hearts of the people. Qatar Airways is somehow, managing both at the moment. We've spent countless hours sampling the airline's offerings across their entire fleet, so we thought it would be fun to share the experience in a way that puts you directly in our seat. Literally. Here's a 360° look at the best business class in the sky...(Continue Reading)...

What It’s Like To Fly British Airways 777-300 First Class – From London Heathrow…

British Airways First Class doesn't offer the very best first class seat in the sky, nor the best lounge, or even champagne. It is, however, an absolutely incredible inflight experience, so I'm glad we got that first part out of the way. Flying first class is incredible, and it's hard to find a better way to do it than from an airline's "home" hub. If you've been looking for a little (a lot) of luxurious adventure in your life, here's what it's like to fly British Airways First Class, on their home turf...(Continue Reading)...

Review: A Glitzy Stay At The SLS BEVERLY HILLS In Los Angeles, California…

There we were, rooftop pool, mojito in hand watching the sun drift towards the ocean thinking "this place is everything". The hardest part about reviewing the SLS Beverly Hills is referring to the stay in past tense. Placed perfectly within walking distance of all things Beverly Hills, a place that's prominence needs no mention, it's everything you could ask for from a five star LA hotel, with all the glitz, glamour sophistication (and admirable superficiality) you'd expect...(Continue Reading)...

How Google’s Project Fi And Pixel Phone Are Changing The Way We Travel…

Unfortunately, there's no "try before you buy" approach to wireless service and cellphones. Once you buy, you're in. Two weeks ago we took the plunge and turned off our wireless service in favor of Google Project Fi and ditched our Apple phones for the new Google Pixel phone. So far the results are super compelling and we've got no regrets...(Continue Reading)...

Review: The LANGHAM Hotel In BOSTON’s Financial District. Past Its Prime?

When you throw in the term "five star" there's unavoidable expectation. How does a property clearly identify itself as a five star hotel and differentiate from the increasingly competitive, and more reasonably priced four star offerings?. Well, after a flawless stay at the Langham Chicago, which may be one of the very best hotels in America, we checked into the Langham Boston and unfortunately, we were left wanting and wondering all of the questions above...(Continue Reading)...

A 360° Look Into Cathay Pacific’s (STUNNING) “The Pier” First Class Lounge In Hong Kong…

Close your eyes and picture the airport terminal as you know it. Not all that appealing. Now dig deeper into your creativity and imagine a secret five star hotel beneath all the sterile spaces, with an ambiance so warm you may entirely forget you're supposed to be flying. Somewhere even beyond your wildest imagination lays The Pier from Cathay Pacific, their newest and best First Class Lounge...(Continue Reading)...

Why Google Project Fi Is The Best Phone Service For Travelers…

Occasionally you hear rumors that sound far too good to be true, and naturally living in a world of utter and complete nonsense you dismiss them. A few months ago I heard rumblings of a service launched by Google known as Project Fi, with notions that it ended almost every frustration I've had with my unnamed wireless carrier. Well, today I actually put my money where my mouth is, switched service and I'm going to tell you why: travel...(Continue Reading)...

Review: The Five Star LANGHAM Hotel, Chicago, Illinois (And A Suite Upgrade!)…

When I think Langham I think London. I also think fancy. The hotel group founded in 1865 has expanded its brand around the world, opening and renovating incredible spaces across the US, with more on the way. To get a feel for their North American offerings we headed to Chicago to check out the city's newest five star hotel. It was pretty spectacular...(Continue Reading)...

Hotel Review: La Residence, Franschhoek, South Africa. The #1 Hotel In Africa…

La Residence is not just a place that treats you like a king, it's a destination that caters to actually kings, in a style only imaginable in a time long before. With celebrities such as Elton John, Robert Redford, Norah Jones and literal royalty making this unique property their home away from home in Franschhoek, the wine growing mountain region ofSouth Africa, you can certainly expect the red carpet. Of course, in order to deliver standards held by kings you need a general. In this case that is the command of General Manager Edward who takes personal interest in each and every guest in a way I can only affectionately describe as being Wes Anderson's "Grand Budapest Hotel" manager in the real world...(Continue Reading)...

A 360° Look At Qatar Airways (INCREDIBLE) Al Mourjan BUSINESS Class Lounge In Doha, QATAR…

The only question is: Why isn't home this good? No waiters? No chefs? The Qatar Airways Al Mourjan Business Class Lounge is everything you could ask for from a business class lounge and even then, it's so much more. Exclusive to business class passengers (nope, elite status won't get you in) it's kept in pristine condition with immense offerings. Take a look for yourself in 360°'s...(Continue Reading)...

Hotel Review: The Shangri La, Bangkok, Thailand + Club Lounge…

Bangkok and buzz are two words that go very well together. The city is an exciting chaos of people, places and things. To balance out the eccentric madness you need a place where you can really kick your feet up and feel at home. The Shangri-La Bangkok is one of the cities most respected hotels and with attractive rates and additional perks we gave it a spin, plus the river views never hurt...(Continue Reading)...

Review: Qatar Airways (Swanky) A320 Flat Bed Business Class In 360° Virtual Reality.

The next level of travel isn't just booking flights, it's paying attention to the aircraft type you'll be flying on, since many offer different setups even within the same airline. Before our flight aboard Qatar's A320 there was much speculation as to whether the plane, primarily used for shorter flights would feature flat beds or "old school" recliner seats that don't go fully flat. Fortunately it was the former, and the service was outstanding...(Continue Reading)...
