Nov 22, 2016  |   Contributor: Eric Rosen

Never heard of La Paz? You’re not alone. But this sleepy Baja fishing town is poised to become the next Mexican jet-set destination thanks to the opening of a new luxury real estate development called Playa de la Paz. Just a 90-minute drive north of Cabo on Mexico’s Baja Peninsula, the little town of La Paz sits on a small bay in the nook of a peninsula. For that reason, although it is on the eastern side of Baja, it faces west, and the sunsets are spectacular, blossoming from gold to red and purple over the waters of the bay and the mountains.

Nov 14, 2016  |   Contributor: Shea Peters

Somewhere between Africa’s Northern coast of Tunisia and the Southern tip of Sicily, lies the most densely populated island in the world, Malta.

Lexington is Much More Than Southern Hospitality & Horses

Nov 10, 2016  |   Contributor: Cynthia Dial

It’s been said that of the more than one million passengers who travel to Lexington through its Blue Grass Airport each year, about 600 of those are horses. Though certainly an unusual stat, this mathematical indicator is illustrative of the region’s love affair with the magnificent mammals. Upon arrival, an oversized, gilded-gold and ornately-framed portrait of Big Lex (a Thoroughbred racehorse of the 1800s named Lexington, now the municipal mascot) serves as the unofficial greeter to this city situated “where the South begins.”

To get an idea of what a Presidential hotel stay is really like, we queried properties across the nation to gather insights into what it looks like to host the Leader of the Free World.

Meixi Lake Hotel Sets Down Roots in China's Emerging Hunan Region

Oct 18, 2016  |   Contributor: Nicolle Monico

Once a center of agriculture in China, Changsha, located on the Xiang River, was known as an important commercial city in the first millennium BC. Yet after the Sino-Japanese War and 1938 fire, the town was destroyed and captured by the Japanese in 1944.
