Buzzing to the hum of a million motorbikes, lined with lemon-coloured French-colonial architecture and heady with the aroma of coffee and incense, Hanoi is one of the most distinctive and vibrant capitals in South East Asia. With traditional culture, a contemporary art scene, with quirky boutiques and increasingly sophisticated dining and nightlife comingling with fantastic street food, add it all up to Parisian grace with an Asian pace!
Stepping through the Loire Valley is a bit like stepping back in time – way, way back to a time where fairytale princes and princesses lived among kings and queens and nobility in grand, extravagant castles.
Novelist Henry James once described the Loire Valley as 'the land of Rabelais, of Descartes, of Balzac as well as good dinners and good houses.' Indeed, life is sweet in the Loire Valley – the food, the wine, the beauty of both the land and the many châteaux and the brushes with royalty and celebrated historical figures.

North American's often refer to Los Cabos as Land's End as it is located on the southernmost tip of the Baja Peninsula south of California. The remarkable setting where the sapphire Sea of Cortez meets desert and mountains is unique to Los Cabos.
What makes Los Cabos so special for the destination golfer, is not just the variety and the sheer beauty of the seaside vistas, it is also the weather. Visitors are almost guaranteed an uninterrupted experience. The weather is divine, about 78ºF on average, representing one of the main attractions for vacationers.
Having recently been named 'Golf Destination of the Year' the 28 mile stretch of coastline from Quivira Golf Club, a few miles west of downtown Cabo San Lucas, to Puerto Los Cabos golf course, a few miles east of San Jose del Cabo, reads like a who's who of golf course design.
