What’s New in Hawaii


Photo credit: Mauna Lani Point 

For centuries, people have visited the islands of aloha for basically the same reasons: vibrant beaches, verdant mountains, lively volcanoes and ancient culture. Yet that doesn’t stop this American slice of paradise from trying to improve itself. Here are the latest enhancements that will have travelers returning to live the island life.

Molokai Now More Accessible – There are no mega-resorts on friendly, little Molokai island, which has long been an attraction to backpackers and snorkelers who could brave the long ferry ride. Thankfully, Mokulele Airlines has introduced new routes to the island from both Oahu and Maui, opening up this unspoiled island to a new generation of travelers.

Resorts – Multi-million dollar renovations are happening across the islands, adding luxury, space and style to such popular resorts as Maui’s Hotel Wailea and Grand Wailea, A Alwadorf Astoria Resort, and Oahu’s Spa and Turtle Bay Resort and Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort, the latter of which will add an on-site apiary to house 80,000 honey-producing bees.

Attractions & Activities – The Pearl Harbor Visitor Center is now offering the USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park as a new offsite venue for groups, where your event could also include exclusive access to the USS Arizona Memorial’s two museums and theaters. At the recently-opened Maui Hawaiian Village, you can learn how native Hawaiians have thrived for generations. And the always-dazzling Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art just opened the Mughal Suite at Shangri La to the public for the first time, showcasing private living quarters inspired by the Taj Mahal.

Most Luxurious Airport Lounges in the USA


After a long day of traveling, there’s nothing more relaxing than checking into a peaceful airport lounge where the internet is high-speed, the food is delicious (and plenty) and showers and other amenities are free. These sacred spots were once only accessible for the elite traveler with first class or business class tickets, however, the times are a-changing. Now, many American airlines offer day passes for any traveler looking to escape the crowded concourse.

Virgin America Loft (LAX)
Virgin is known for their excellent customer service. It’s no surprise then that their lounge is also top notch. Here you’ll enjoy complimentary snacks and beverages from their contemporary bar. The modern, trendy feel will make you forget you’re in an airport at all. No children under 12 are permitted. If you’re in the mood to get some work done, there are plenty of outlets and free internet access. A day pass to this hideaway costs $40.

AA Admirals Club (LAX)
This spacious lounge, operated by American Airlines, is touted for its good food and great customer service. Enjoy gazing at the planes or get some work done while you’re waiting in between flights, you can even take a refreshing shower. Children are permitted in here, but have their own separate play area. Day passes to this lounge cost $50.

Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse (JFK)
This 10,000 square foot space is modern and comfortable. It offers spa services to guests including massages, facials, or even haircuts. Instead of the typical complimentary buffet, this lounge offers table service and a fantastic selection of cocktails. When you’ve had your fill, enjoy a quick game of pool before catching your flight. Day passes to this oasis cost $75.

Centurion Lounge (DFW)
Get complimentary 15-minute spa treatments at this spacious southwestern themed lounge. Enjoy a buffet of southwestern food options for breakfast or lunch/dinner. There also have comfortable seating, workstations, and chaise lounges perfect for napping, working, or reading for any traveler. Day passes to this lounge run $50.

While all airports have lounges, many still cater to the first class fliers, or club members. Annual memberships can be purchased, but first check to see if any of your credit cards carry travel perks for members. Some will get you access to these clubs and others without having to pay a fee at all. Keep airport lounges in mind for your next long layover or cancelled flight.

Off The Grid In Yangon, Burma

After the 2010 election the Burmese government changed significantly, making Burma a safe and appealing destination for travelers seeking somewhere new and authentic. Home to awe-inspiring religious monuments, charming colonial architecture and colorful street markets, there’s never been a better time to visit Yangon.

If you were only able to visit one place in Yangon, it would have to be the sacred site of 2,500-year-old Shwedagon Pagoda, where strands of Buddha’s hair and other relics are enshrined. Shwedagon is one of the most elaborate structures: the gold-plated pagoda stands at over 320ft and the top of the stupa is encrusted with 5,448 diamonds, 2,317 rubies, sapphires and other gems.

Make sure to wander the 2,000-odd shops at the Bogyoke Aung San Market, where you will find all the souvenirs you need. If you enjoy seafood and most Asian cuisine, then you will love the Chinese, Indian and Thai influences in Burmese cuisine. Be sure to try laphet thohk (green tea salad), made from pickled tea leaves; and mohinga, a bowl of rice noodles covered in delicious fish soup.

Check out our Burma Adventure with G Adventures and experience one of Southeast Asia’s best kept secrets in comfort! Call our travel specialists for more information.

4 Top Attractions in South America

1) Argentina–Buenos Aires: Tango classes are available just about anywhere in the capital city, from youth hostels and cultural centers to milongas (tango halls), and with so many tourists flooding the city to learn, many instructors now teach the dance in English. Head to Galerias Pacificos for daily street performances and work up an appetite before indulging in Argentina’s world-renowned steak.

2) Ecuador–Galapagos Islands: The islands are famed for their vast number of endemic species, which were studied by Charles Darwin during the voyage of the Beagle. Today the islands are a protected UNESCO World Heritage Site.

3) Colombia–Cartagena: Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this tropical city on the Caribbean is  best viewed on board a chiva, a typical Colombian bus, while a band entertains you playing vallenato–a traditional musical genre of the coast. If you opt for the night tour, your last stop will be a discotheque, where you can continue the party.

4) Brazil–Rio De Janeiro: Standing atop Corcovado mountain, the 125ft Christ the Redeemer Statue–weighing 1,145 tons and completed in 1931–is an internationally recognized icon. The statues arms stretch 92ft wide.

Don’t forget the 2014 FIFA World Cup and Rio 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games will all take place in Brazil! Let our travel consultants help you get there and live the complete experience. Call us today!
