A Laid Back Mini-Vacation to Savannah, Georgia

For a few days over July 4th week, we decided to spend a few days exploring Charleston and Savannah. We arrived in Savannah at around 4pm and spent two nights at the Andaz Savannah, a very well-located hotel in the heart of the historic district. For many reasons, this trip was meant to be slow-paced and relaxing, so we didn’t want to cram our itineraries until we were sore in the feet. In fact, we stopped by the hotel several…

Checked In: Andaz Savannah

As we arrived in Savannah, Georgia, we checked in to Andaz, a Hyatt branch with a boutique vibe that’s situated right in the heart of the historic district of the city. As soon as we entered the lobby, it was clear they had recently renovated (apparently as of April 9, 2018), and the only word I can muster to describe the decor was hip. The decor was minimalistic and clean, with white walls that created an airy feel and contemporary…

Top Tips for Your First Trip to China

When it comes to the countries that I’ve visited, I am no stranger to China. This past November, I made my fifth trip to China, this time visiting the province of Yunnan. It was such a beautiful place architecturally, with some unique highlights. But more on Yunnan will be coming in a different blogpost. What I want to focus on today is some travel tips for China on your first visit, so you get a little more familiar. Some of…

Chicago in Two Days

Changing the tune since my last trip to Los Cabos, I decided to take a quick trip to the bustling city of Chicago, also known as ‘The Windy City’, in Illinois. I went with a friend who also has never been to Chicago so it was fun exploring the city. Below was our itinerary, and hopefully it can help you get an idea of what is possible in 48 hours of being in the city. Day 0: 11pm – Grab…

Secrets Puerto Los Cabos – All-Inclusive, Adults Only Resort

In the past nine months, I’ve been to three different adults-only, all inclusive resorts in Mexico. The first two – Hyatt Zilara in Cancun and Secrets Maroma in Playa Del Carmen – were terrific properties. Needless to say, we were excited to once again relax and on an all-inclusive beach-front property, this time around in Secrets Puerto Los Cabos in Baja California, Mexico. I say the word “relax” loosely because we were actually there for an annual travel agency conference!…

Seize Your Moment

When I was in high school, I had the dream of traveling the world, one country at a time. Funnily enough, at that same time, I barely stepped out of my little town. I didn’t even explore the next town over. I kept making excuses like “oh, I don’t have a car and it takes too much energy to take the bus” or “oh, I don’t have enough money to do x, y, and z” or “oh, I have too…

A Day With The Eiffel Tower

It’s such a strange phenomenon to be able to actually see and touch something that, for the longest time, seemed like such a far-off dream. Even now, two months after our trip to Paris, it’s hard for me to fathom the fact that I was on top of the Eiffel Tower and looking down on Paris. In fact, I believe I only have photo of me with the Eiffel Tower and it was a pretty bad one, haha, so if…

Favorite Headphones for Traveling

One of the crucial items that Joseph and I like to bring are travel headphones. For Joseph, it helps him keep the screaming kids at bay during a 15 hour flight to Asia or to watch in-flight movies without using the airline’s screeching cheap earbuds. I use it to catch up on some podcasts to make those flights go a little bit faster. So what’s in our lineup? Bose QuietComfort 35 Wireless Headphones For the heavy-duty noise-cancelling bluetooth headphones, we…

So how does it fare? Is it really worth the price and the savings? First, let’s look at what the attractions the New York CityPass has partnered up with. Empire…

Hyatt Regency Paris Etoile: A Room with a Dazzling View

During our eight night stay in Paris, we stayed in Hyatt Regency Paris Etoile and enjoyed every second of it. If you read through our blog, you’ll know we’re pretty big fans of Hyatt because they offer such great service (like the one in Cancun, Mexico or the one in Park City, Utah). This time around was no exception. Hyatt Regency Paris Etoile is one of three Hyatts in Paris, along with Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme and Hyatt Paris Madelaine. It was…
