Mr Hudson on
Things to do in Hong Kong Central
Old Town Central, which really isn’t a district, but more of an area with imaginary borders, lays in the heart of central Hong Kong and is clinging on to its past while also playing host to a new breed of hipsters; a wealthier, more established, yet not fully into the scene type of person.
Le Marais; for the love of Taffeta
One of the most convenient and dynamic districts of central Paris must be Le Marais, which provides a perfect mixture of local and foreign.
Things to do on the Costa Vicentina, Portugal
Portugal’s south-west coast between Alentejo and the Algarve, locally known as the Costa Vicentina, is one of the country’s last truly wild stretches of seaside.
Things to do in Charleston
No matter to whom you’re listening, you’re in for a good time in Charleston; lots of Lowcountry cooking and cobblestone-street strolls that transport you to another place in time.
Things to do in Rajasthan
Travel to Rajasthan, and you’ll immediately see why many consider it to be the crown jewel of India. The second largest state in the country, Rajasthan is a place of swirling turbans, swaying camels, sweeping forts and opulent palaces.
Things to do in Baltimore
Charm City might have gotten a bad rap in the past, but the city is once again booming, and the over 200 micro neighbourhoods are transforming more and more into their own, individually unique and all full of prideful residents.
Things to do in Riviera Maya
Riviera Maya and the surrounding areas have some pretty spectacular things to see, all relatively nearby, so in order to make the most out of your experience, making the time to venture out of your hotel is the way to go.
Trekking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu
Machu Picchu lies on a mountain ridge in Peru at 2,430m (7,970ft) altitude, and you can reach it via train from Cusco. Or, you can tread in the footsteps of the Incas and get there via one of the most famous treks in the world.
Things to do in Japan’s Yaeyama Islands
When you think about Japan, images of geisha, delicious sushi and beautiful temples will most likely spring to mind. But what about tropical islands, pristine reefs, secluded beaches and jungles?
Things to do in Esteros del Iberá
Esteros del Iberá is one of the hidden secrets of Argentina; it is the second largest wetland in the world after the Pantanal in Brazil.
The Nakasendo trail – Japan’s bygone byway
Many expanses of the Nakasendo, which connected Tokyo and Kyoto during Japan’s Edo period, are remote and quiet enough that you might actually feel as if you’re back in the early 7th century.
Things to do in the Alentejo region in Portugal
For those of you with a love of vast landscapes, amazing vistas and medieval architecture, there is a series of small villages along the Spanish-Portuguese border that are well worth exploring.
The best day trips from Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
On your next vacation to Mexico, skip Cabo and Cancun and head to Puerto Vallarta instead. Then, leave plenty of time to explore a few magical gems that are a quick and easy trip away.
Things to do in Tel Aviv
Tel Aviv, to be sure, is not only the geographical heart of Israel, but its cultural, commercial and, indeed, gay nucleus.
Things to do in Salvador, Brazil’s boldest beach city
While Rio offers an abundance of sights, sounds and flavours—not to mention, the 2016 Olympic Games—a more dynamic destination sits northward along the coast, in Brazil’s Bahia province: Salvador.
The best day trips from Bangkok
Both Bangkok’s geography and its history make it a perfect hub for day trips, whether you’re seeking culture, cuisine, the countryside, or all three.
Things to do in Serra de Montejunto, Portugal
Less than an hour’s drive from the charismatic Portuguese capital Lisbon lie the lush rolling hills and juniper valleys of the Serra de Montejunto.
Things to do in the Óbidos region in Portugal
Óbidos is a medieval fortified town in central Portugal, dramatically perched upon a sloped hilltop, bursting with rural charm and cobblestone streets.
Things to do in Maui Upcountry
Maui is world-renowned for its dramatic coastline and stunning beaches, but much of the island’s magic is located inland on the misty slopes of Mt. Haleakala. Locals refer to the region as Upcountry.
