Natural Wonders in India for Your World Travel Bucketlist

India is a land of chaotic charm; a country with a civilization dating back to 5500 BC, and a culture which is a pandemonic mix of the modern and the ancient worlds.

While many travelers visit India to experience spirituality, culture, and history, the country also has an incredible natural allure.

From the icy peaks of the Himalayas in the North, to the sun-kissed beaches in the South; from the dry deserts of the west to the wettest place on earth in the east, India is often rightly called the mini world.

Authentic Greek Foods You HAVE to Try in Athens

From dazzling beaches, to historic ruins, and a spirited cultural energy, there are many reasons to travel to Greece.

A passionate country, and a cultural treasure trove, Greece is an exciting destination that often feels otherworldy; standing in the shadow of landmarks that have been there for centuries, catching locals in heated political debates, or accidentally bumping into a festival … no, wait, that’s just a large family gathering!

The Greeks are passionate about a great many things, but one thing they’re most passionate about is their food. Traditional cooking is the way in Greece, with an emphasis on regional produce like mussels steamed in ouzo, herbs from the mountains, and fish straight out of the sea.

Art Series The Chen: A Luxury Hotel Celebrating Australia’s Rich Multiculturalism

Australia is a county shaped by migrants; it is said that one in four Australians were born overseas, and this rich, cultural diversity is one of our greatest strengths.

While European settlers started the trend in the late 1700’s, Australia today sees migrants from more than 190 countries; from India, the UK, and, most notably, China. (Fun fact, Mandarin has become the most spoken language in Australia after English).

Australian cities have become a melting pot of cultures, and no-where is this more prevalent than the Melbourne suburb of Box Hill. Home to Melbourne’s largest Chinese population, well over half the population of Box Hill was either born in China or has Chinese ancestry. And this is a fact that Melbournians are incredibly proud of.

One hotel that has embraced and showcased this beautiful ethnic diversity is the Art Series Hotel – The Chen. Named for the Chinese born artist Zhong Chen, who migrated to Melbourne as a teenager, The Chen is a boutique hotel that celebrates not only Chen’s abstract art, but Australia’s rich multiculturalism.

Mantra Lorne: Where to Stay on the Great Ocean Road

Mantra Lorne: Where to Stay on the Great Ocean Road

The Great Ocean Road is one of Australia’s most scenic drives. A 250 km route that hangs precariously on soaring sea cliffs along Victoria’s coastline, it winds between pretty towns and beaches, all set against the backdrop of Australia’s few temperate rainforests.

Though for one of Australia’s most popular tourist destinations, most visitors to the area sadly see very little, and most of that through a car window. But you won’t see the best sights from your car.

While the road can technically be driven in a day, you’re doing yourself a great disservice by not setting yourself up in one of the lovely towns along the route and making that your base for several days.

Much more than a scenic highway, this region is home to a myriad of coastal tracks, rainforest trails, and hikes which connect historic seaside villages, taking in ocean views and dramatic waterfalls.

While there are several towns offering accommodation along the route, if you’re looking to stay directly on the beach, one of the best options is Mantra Lorne.
