BANGKOK & SAN FRANCISCO > BLOG POSTS BASED ON MY OWN TRAVEL EXPERIENCES
Thailand is - without a doubt - my favotire destination in the world, and the place I like to call my home away from home. Been there countless times, and each time I return, I fell even more in love with it. This time I did a fast vist Bangkok, on my way to Myanmar. I spent two nights at the inconic Grand Dame Oriental Hotel by Mandarin Oriental, and had some free time to get over the jetlag and catch up with dear friends. As for San Francisco, I visit at least two times a year. This time, we stayed at the St Regis Hotel San Francisco in SOMA - South of Market and had a very hectic week which inclided lots of socializing, fashion, opera, restaurants, hotels and a lovely and casual day exploring Sausalito.

SPOTLIGHT> CARLOS MELIA ON THE NEWS
FIRST IN SERVICE NEWS features Carlos Melia on their latest issue, on an interview entitled " Just Back From: Myanmar ". One morning on his recent visit to Myanmar, our luxury leisure specialist Carlos Melia woke up at dawn to visit a tiny town just outside of Mandalay. It was here that he spent quiet time giving alms to the local Buddhist monks. Carlos describes it as a ‘Travel Bucket List’ moment, one of many he experienced in this land of mythical landscapes.
Why did you choose Myanmar? I’ve traveled extensively in Asia, always looking for unexplored destinations that remain true to their roots. I felt that Myanmar, like Luang Prabang and Laos years ago, fell into this category. Also, my clients were asking me about it, so I had to pack my bags and do my research.> Read More
