Now venture out in the following lively venues to rejuvenate and enjoy the nightlife of this cultural capital of South India.

Pasha

Pasha at The Park is the liveliest disco in town. This place has been designed adhering to the Persian style of architecture and is a favourite among the city’s party mongers. Weekends are quite happening here and you can witness themed parties and premiere parties at this location every Saturday and Sunday. The charges are a bit expensive but the ambience and the tracks played by the DJ make up for it. The Bollywood nights are the major attraction of this disco and witnesses crowds throughout the year for its upbeat environment and positive aura. Besides all this, Pasha also has a well-trained hospitality staff that caters to all your food needs.

Regency Club Lounge

Regency Club is an elite lounge located within the Hyatt Regency, Chennai. A little of what we would deem as an exclusive venue, this club is exquisitely decorated and is known to house the best range of alcohol in the city. The seating area is separate from the disco and offers a plush ambience for you to relax and unwind. Special club nights are often organised on weekends and Fridays and DJs tune in the best track to pump up the charm of this place. An interesting thing about this place is that it has a rooftop pool at Hyatt that is located just beside the Club and you can also witness pool parties here on weekends. The waiters and hospitality are extremely professional and courteous and ensure the safety of all its visitors.

Bay 146

Bay 146 is located within the Savera Hotel in the Mylapore neighbourhood of Chennai. This one is unlike a regular nightclub. With plush seating, elegant upholstery and charming white marble floors, Bay 146 is an incredible venue for those who prefer a soothing ambience over loud peppy numbers. The seating has been divided into two areas, one is for those who like a soft atmosphere and the other for those who want a proper nightclub aura. This pub has a curated range of exquisite cocktails and expert bartenders to help you find or make the right drink for the night. While here, you cannot afford to miss out on their exclusive Chinese and European delicacies which are prepared with utmost care and precision. An interesting fact about this place is that it showcases its different signature dishes daily and in a unique manner to please its guests.

Blend

Located in the Taj Clubhouse at Anna Salai, Blend displays a beautiful amalgamation of plush seating with neon interiors and lights. The dance floor produces neon laser beams while it is flooded with party mongers and in the darkness, this neon light creates a vibe like none other. Food and alcohol in Blend are exceptional, however, it is compulsory to book a table before visiting, since the club has limited capacity. You cannot simply afford to miss out on their Berry and Cappuccino Affair mocktails which is only one of their many specialities. The club also has a local DJ that plays trendy music throughout the week, however, on special occasions, international DJs are also called on stage. The blend also organises exclusive Ladies Nights every Friday where the ladies in the house can have alcohol at cheap rates compared to the standard price of the alcohol. Other than this, it also has a diverse menu serving dishes from different delicacies that will keep you energised till the end of the party. 

So, these are some of the best nightclubs in Chennai where you can plan your group hangouts, interact with the locals and dance on the peppy beats and simultaneously reenergise from a monotonous life.

London’s Must Visits

Have you ever fly to London before? The capital of the United Kingdom, a true international metropolis, a place where you see traces of history often cracks the top 10 in everyone’s travel list. Though a very historic place, London surprises everyone with how they mix modern and historic together, making it one of the perfect travel destinations. Here I created an all rounded list of attractions to see in London, where you get to experience the culture and history as well as the fun and attractive side of London.

  1. Buckingham Palace

The grand Buckingham Palace comes to mind when talking about the historic side of London. Where Queen Elizabeth II resides, this royal palace has been the official home to many royals since 1837. Throughout the years, the palace has grown into a lavish place with 775 rooms, of which 188 are staff bedrooms, 92 offices, 78 bedrooms, 52 royal and guest bedrooms and 19 state rooms, spreading over 77,000 square metres. The palace is beautiful any time of the day. But if you wish to experience the traditional changing guards ceremony, be sure to arrive before 11:00am to get a good spot. Wanting to get a stroll inside this regal palace? Buckingham Palace is usually open to the public for guided tours in around August to September, make sure to check the official timetable and get your tickets in advance! Next to the palace are two of London’s royal parks, Green Park and St. James’s Park, feel free to take a walk after your visit and take in the refreshing scenery. A little fun fact for you to watch out during your visit, if the flag is flown in the palace, that means the queen is present in the palace carrying her royal duties or perhaps giving you a little wink.

  1. Big Ben

One cannot travel to London and not visit the Big Ben; it is the most recognised landmark of London. The Big Ben is actually London’s House of Parliaments, where bills and legislations are passed. The building was finally completed in 1859 after years of attempts. In fact the bell in the clock tower today is the exact same one from 1859. Located in the centre of London, Big Ben chimes every hour. Make sure to get to Big Ben around 15 to 20 minutes before the hour, appreciate the delicate yet breath taking building, take the perfect pictures then listen to the powerful chime. You will be blown away, I assure you! Big Ben has two very different sides of beauty during the day and night. If you have enough time, it’s worth visiting it twice during different hours. But if time were an issue, I would recommend visiting at night, when the entire building and the tower are lit up and reflected on River Thames. While the street is roaming with people and vehicles when everyone is trying to get home after a long day, an illuminated Big Ben strikes a chord of silence with its charm and elegance.

  1. Harrods

A perfect example of London being a professional in mixing modern and history today is the famous high-end department store – Harrods. Harrods was first built as a grocery store in 1849. After years of development and expansion, in 1901 to 1905, Harrods’ iconic dome like structure was built and kept till this day. Though one of the world’s best high-end department store, Harrods offers something to everyone; ranging from luxury fashion, to the most advanced technology and to an international food market. Even if you are not planning to do a shopping spree and break the bank a little in Harrods, this seven-floor department store is definitely worth a visit. Each floor has different themes and is designed by different artists, the magnificent interior design as well as its well known structure will put you in awe. Or perhaps step inside and imagine what life was like in the 20th century. If you are looking for an authentic British experience, I’ve got you covered! Harrods offers one of the best afternoon teas in London. Honestly nothing beats unwinding in an elegant tearoom while being inside a piece of history.

  1. Oxford Circus

Still on the hunt for another perfect place to shop in? Don’t worry! Oxford Circus might just be the place for you. Unlike Harrods, Oxford Circus is not a department store but a traffic crossing as well as a shopping paradise. Oxford Circus has a vast variety of stores, from budget to high street to high end. You will definitely find something that fits your budget in Oxford Circus! It’s also a great place to shop for souvenirs. Visit during the winter, and you will be blown away by one of the most romantic Christmas decorations. All stores in Oxford Circus will be dripping in fairy lights. You can also see the famous Christmas angels there. It’s truly breath taking and a great place to get that perfect Instagram travel picture. Christmas Lights in Oxford Circus are usually switched on in mid November till early January. So make sure to plan your travel ahead and do not miss this magical scene.

  1. Piccadilly Circus

Piccadilly Circus is the Time Square of London with its giant digital screen and all kinds of shops, restaurants and attraction sides. Piccadilly Circus is a road junction that joins a number of major streets in London together; it’s easy to walk to Piccadilly Circus from Oxford Circus. So the best plan is to do some shopping in Oxford Circus during the day then head to Piccadilly Circus at night for dinner and appreciate the lights. One of the busiest streets in London, you can see all kinds of things in Piccadilly Circus, sometimes you can even see street performers putting on their best show ever. If you are looking for local independent stores to shop from, you can head to Piccadilly Arcade. Stores in Piccadilly Arcade are often full of historical stories and are of the best qualities. Theatre is extremely famous in London. One of London’s famous theatres, the Piccadilly Theatre, is just right around the corner. Feel free to check what shows will be on that night and have a musical experience.

  1. Borough Market

Another busy spot for food during the day has got to be Borough Market. Be sure to visit with an empty stomach because trust me you would want to stuff your face with everything you see in the market. You can find all kinds of food in Borough Market, from fresh fruits, to traditional English cheese, seafood, dessert, truffles and all kinds of special drinks. Borough Market is like an indoor farmers’ market, you can get the freshest produce there. Borough Market in fact is actually another perfect example of mixing modern and history together. One of London’s oldest food market, Borough Market dates back to the 12th century. The market opens 10:00 am to 5:00 pm from Monday to Thursday, 10:00 am to 6:00 pm on Friday and 8:00 am to 5:00 pm on Saturday. Visit during lunch hours, get your lunch fixed and buy some special and tasty snacks for your friends and families back home!

  1. Camden

Tired of the historic tourists site? Up in Northwest London is Camden Town, a vibrant town next to the river with a street food market, all kinds of interesting shops and the perfect place for a fun night out. Most shops in Camden Town has their own unique exterior design, each shops makes an eye-catching picture! You can also buy special designs of fashion items in Camden Town. If you are hungry, the best thing to do is to grab a bite in the street food market, sit down near the river and enjoy your meal. Camden Town is a place that never sleeps, stay a bit later and have a fun night out with your mates!

  1. Brick Lane

Another fun part of London is Brick Lane. Like its name, buildings in Brick Lane are mostly built of age-old bricks from back in the days; the streets are also covered with cobblestones. As traditional as it sounds, Brick Lane is far from being traditional and boring. It is in fact a vibrant and exciting area in London when you can find some of the best vintage treasures in a bargain! Brick Lane is young and energetic, you can see amazing street art everywhere. And if that doesn’t make the ideal Instagram picture, I don’t know what does! The best time to visit Brick Lane is during the weekends at daytime when everyone is out and about, hunting for fun things! In Brick Lane Beigel Bake, you can get yourself one of the best beagles in town! So if you do visit Brick Lane, don’t forget to make a stop at the bakery.

So You Want To Visit Rome

Except for some of the Greek city-states, Rome is just about the oldest place in Europe. It’s an incredible place to visit and spend a holiday. If you’ve got several days to spend, you might never get bored with the city. In fact, you could probably spend a month there and never get bored. Recently, I was in Rome for a few days to soak up the experience. It was incredibly fun, but there are some things you need to be aware of, especially if you’re coming from the UK.

The Weather

Rome is a few thousand kilometres south of the UK, so the weather is going to be much different. And by much different, I mean hot. Rome – and Italy in general – is much warmer than the UK. If you’re going in July or August, you should know that the average high temperature is about thirty degrees Celsius. That might not be a very big deal for someone from Italy or Australia, but for a UK citizen, it can be a bit of a shock. Make sure you bring your sunblock and your wide-brimmed hat. The summers are hot and dry. The winters, however, are a dream for someone from the UK. The average low during the winter is about three degrees Celsius. That’s pretty cold, but rarely does it get down that far. Usually, the temperature during the winter hovers at about seven or eight degrees Celsius. If you’re headed to Rome, I would say the best time to go is during the fall. That’s when I went. I walked around all day wearing just a light jumper. I was never too hot or too cold.

What to See

Choosing what to see is one of the most difficult parts of going to Rome. Vatican City is always a popular option. Holiday apartments in Rome, right next to Vatican City are difficult to find, so if you’re planning to visit, you should try to plan as far in advance as possible. That makes it more likely that you’ll find one near your areas of interest.

When you visit Vatican City, you might notice that the guards aren’t Italian. That was the first thing I noticed when I went. The guards are Swiss. Well, it turns out that the Swiss have been the guards of the Pope for hundreds of years. During the medieval period, Switzerland wasn’t quite as neutral as it is now. Due to their country and their society, they didn’t really have castles or knights. Instead, they had fearsome fighting groups that actually resembled the old Roman phalanx. They were so fearsome that they became the most trusted and sought-after mercenaries in the medieval world. You don’t really think of the Swiss being fearsome, do you? But, that’s what they were. Well, the Pope hired them in the 15th century to guard him, and they’re still doing it to this day. Interesting, no?

Rome is full of that kind of history practically everywhere you turn. Rome is built on seven different hills. Each one has a rich history that tells how Rome came to be a great city. If you get the chance, you should visit them all.

Start Planning Your Hiking Trip To Mallorca

Palma is home to many interesting places, but the real beauty of the island is found in the unspoiled countryside and its hiking routes

The people that have already been to Mallorca, say that there are many different ways for enjoying the island without getting sunburnt. They are also thankful for the fact that when it comes to the Balearic Islands, Ibiza gets all the attention and massive crowds of tourists as well.

Even though a large number of tourists, mostly from the UK, Germany and the Scandinavian region, have started to flock in Mallorca, the island is not as much crowded as Ibiza. The latter turns into a clubbing paradise during the summer season that runs from May to October. Afterwards, the island is much quieter. In the meantime, out-of-season tourists start to come in Mallorca when summer is over and the temperatures begin to cool down and it feels like fall. This can mean only one thing: It’s time for hiking.

Start your hiking adventure in Mallorca

Mallorca is famous among the fans of outdoor activities for having some of the best hiking routes in Europe. Not everyone loves summer vacations on the beach. There are people that like to play it cool. They go and explore new places and sometimes without no specific purpose. They can also chase unknown trails that run through beautiful countryside and along the scenic coastline of Mallorca.

Even those who are not avid hikers can wander around the capital Palma and to nearby cities like Soller. A hiking trip can start with a visit to the museum of surrealist painter Joan Miro, to La Seu Cathedral, which was built in the site of a mosque and restored based on a project designed by Antoni Gaudi and many other places within the city.

Palma is home to many interesting places, but the real beauty of the island is found in the unspoiled countryside. This is a part that not all the visitors that come to the island explore. Colonies from different civilizations have been established in Mallorca during its history. There were Phoenicians, Greeks, Carthaginians, Romans, Iberians, Arabs, etc. They all have left their footprints in the Islands and hiking trails are some of them. There are walking routes that have been used since centuries by the colonials, the inhabitants and the pirates.

Nowadays they are used by Mallorcans and hikers. Walking routes vary in the length and difficulty. Some of them are family-friendly while others require specific hiking skills.

Avid hikers can walk the Torrent de Pareis, the Dry Stone Route, Cuber to Lluc via Puig Massanella, Valldemossa Circuit and Barranc de Biniaraix, Cornadors and S’Arrom.

In the meantime, others can choose among numerous easy and medium walks. You can find more details about these routes and information for hiking trips to Mallorca at mitoura.com.

Francisco Cuervo y Valdes Was The Founder

The church was actually built in 1793 and still stands to this day. It is a historical landmark that is well-known throughout the state of New Mexico.

The Railroad Era Put Albuquerque on the Map

In 1880, the first train pulled into Albuquerque and that was the start of the development of a new town. Walter Marmon was a civil engineer that was hired to lay out the new town, which was to be designed similar to towns across the Midwest. Albuquerque was named an official town in 1885 and Henry N. Jaffa was named the first mayor. This was the beginning of the rapid growth of the town of Albuquerque.

A Growing Population

By the turn of the century, Albuquerque was booming and had a population of around 6,200 people. The growing town of Albuquerque became known as one of the best areas for employment. The American Lumber Company called Albuquerque home and was one of the largest employers in the country at the time. The need for workers, along with the dry climate, were big reasons why many migrated to the area and Albuquerque still continues to grow to this day offering many opportunities.

Just offshore, Lobos Island offers a sugar-white beach perfect for sunbathing and snorkelling, while Kicker Rock promises exceptional diving with sharks, eagle spotted rays, and sea turtles. Nearby Witch Hill is one of the most picturesque beaches of the Galapagos, and the island of Española is a naturalist’s paradise, with sea lions, albatrosses, Darwin’s finches, marine iguanas, lava lizards and the Galapagos hawk just a few of the animal attractions. Visit the flamingo lagoon of Cormorant Bay, and see the tiny Galapagos penguin on Bartholomew Island. Snorkel in Darwin’s Bay, visit the nesting sites of the blue and red-footed boobies, and walk the stunning cliff path of South Plazas Island among the giant cacti. Finally, head to Santa Cruz, a dormant volcano, and Baltra, where you can hike the two craters.

38m M/Y STELLA MARIS is the only privately-owned charter superyacht based permanently in the Galapagos, and is the ideal choice for a Galapagos yacht charter.

For laid-back tropical indulgence: Leeward Islands, Caribbean

The Leeward Islands in the Caribbean have long been one of the most popular yacht cruising grounds, promising French-Caribbean glamour, historic English harbours, and spectacular tropical beaches.

Begin your charter in Antigua, as famous for its laid-back culture as its perfect, palm-lined beaches, before cruising to the twin islands of Saint Kitts & Nevis, where you can see monkeys in the cloud forest, snorkel on pristine reefs, and visit luxury plantation hotels. Ultra-chic Saint Bart’s promises boutique shopping, French restaurants, and celebrity sightings, while exclusive Anguilla offers desert island bliss on sugar-white beaches. Saint Martin is an island of two halves, with Marigot’s boutiques and beach clubs delivering a quintessentially French-Caribbean experience, while the Dutch side has some wonderful nightlife and shopping on offer to finish up your Leeward Islands yacht charter.

There is a large fleet of Caribbean superyachts for charter each winter, but our favourite over all was this Leeward Islands yachting itinerary.
