Which hotel has the best view in Seoul?


The Grand Hyatt Seoul offers the best overall views in the city…we could not have picked a better hotel for our last few nights in Korea. Nestled in 10-acres of landscaped grounds at the foot of Namsan,  the Hyatt feels like a remote mountain hideaway even though the trendy shopping lie only a short walk down the hill. 

Ayanchin Lodge

A cozy hideaway in Mongolia’s Terelj National Park


Mongolia’s capital Ulaan Bataar lies less than 3 hours by direct flight from most major Asian cities. This makes the country ideal for a getaway to escape the city and enjoy fresh air and wide open spaces. Read on for info about the Ayanchin Four Seasons Lodge, where you can stay in comfort at the doorstep of one of Mongolia’s most beautiful national parks.
