Arriving in the “Paris of the East” looking across the huge Danube River at the extremely beautiful structures lining on either side of the river bank. Budapest is truly a beautiful city. It is filled with delicious food, classical music playing romantically on the streets and more importantly, the city is famous for its thermal baths. We stayed at a famous Budapest spa hotel, Danubius Gellert Hotel to tick of this must do activity in this this city.
It is hard to argue that Santorini and Athens are one of the two most famous places in Greece. Millions of tourists flock into this crescent-shaped volcanic island in the Cyclades each year to experience its sensational sunset, gorgeous beaches and local charms. There are many towns and villages in Santorini with its own uniqueness. Tourists will often wonder where is the best place to stay in Santorini?
My proposal happened right in front of Mount Fuji. York proposed at Kozantei Ubuya Ryokan which is located in Lake Kawaguchiko district. It has one of the best views of Mt Fuji as the ryokan is situated on the northern shores of the lake.

Dubai, a huge empire built on the profit made from oil and gold. It is a gateway to Europe for many Asia and Oceania countries and it is a popular stop-over for tourists flying with Emirates. We chose Mövenpick Ibn Battuta Gate Hotel as our base for the four days we were in Dubai. This hotel is more like a luxury relaxation village as oppose to the other luxury hotels which were high rises around the city centers.
After we finished touring Aït Benhaddou we drove another few hours and end our night at Skoura. Our accommodation for the night was a boutique hotel called Espace Kasbah Amridil- 300 year old Kasbah! It was actually the filming location for a classic film called “Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves” back in 1944! Even though I have never seen the movie before, but I was very familiar with the tale from Arabian nights.
