Travelogue- Sao Paulo, Brazil

I’ve been wanting to go to South America for such a long time. Finally I got the chance to visit Brazil thanks to the Sao Paulo Fashion Week. Spending one whole week in Sao Paulo and 1.5 days in Rio de Janeiro, I had a blast. Throughout the whole time, we were so lucky to have stayed at the Hotel Fasano in both cities, and they are AMAZING. don’t believe me? Wait till you see the photos later and in the next post. Sao Paulo is a very interesting city. It has its developing areas, it also has its luxurious posh areas. I have to say though, we were travelling by car from point to point, so it wasnt too hard to get around. However...

Travelogue- A place for art and culture lover- Basel, Switzerland

  Well yes I’m in Switzerland again. Over the weekend I was in Basel (post baselworld). I heard so much about this little city while I was working, and never actually been. So I decided to go take a look myself. Basel is the city of art and culture, it is also a little hipster. As I stroll along the street, my friend was telling me little stories about the city. It’s a mixture of laid-back with rich historical heritage. Basel is actually a very cool place where quite a lot of hipster parties are held. My friends in the industry were surprised when I said I had the most fun party in Basel…! Other than that, the city is a pleas...

Live like The 3 Kings (and a Queen!)

Basel, Switzerland is one of the most important cities in the luxury industry. Baselworld is the event where all luxurious watch and jewellery showcases and the industry people from all over the world meet. I was in Basel for the last weekend, and my friend highly recommended me to stay at the Grand Hotel Les Trois Rois that sits on the Rhine Riverside.   Dating back to 1681, Les Trois Rois is one of Europe’s oldest city hotels and exudes the charm and elegance of a historic grand hotel. Les Trois Rois means the 3 kings in French. The moment I stepped into the hotel I was in awe. The architecture, the interior, the chandelier, ...

Travelogue- Innsbruck tips: Grand Hotel Europa

  Innsbruck is a beautiful little city. Earlier on I went on a snowboarding holiday and stopped by Innsbruck for just 1.5 day. I was very sure I had been to Innsbruck before (SWAROVSKI headquarters), but just couldn’t remember how the city looks like, so my friend from Innsbruck said : if you cannot remember Innsbruck, you have not been to Innsbruck. With a limited amount of time, I stayed at the Grand Hotel Europa in Innsbruck. The location of the hotel is unbeatable. Directly across the road to the Innsbruck train station, the hotel has a long glamourous history. Founded by Schreiner & Klausner in 1869, since its establishmen...

Travelogue- Bern, Switzerland- Hotel Bellevue Palace Bern

Every city has its own story to tell, so as every hotel. Visiting Switzerland without visiting the capital city Bern isn’t complete. So I decided to hop on a train from Zurich (now I call it my third home), and walk around the historical city. Chosen by the Switzerland’s federal parliament as the capital city in 1848, Bern is actually a very small city, the old town is classified as a UNESCO World Cultural heritage site. Staying at the most luxurious hotel in Bern, Hotel Bellevue Palace is every bit a palace. Situated on top a little hill next to the river Aare, the location and the view is impeccable- you basically see the ent...
