We admit, we really like big planes, and if they are even larger and more impressive, we like them even more. Our sympathy isn’t of course the only reason why the cover of this issue features the famous Dreamliner, wearing the new livery of our national air carrier. Boeing’s new aircraft arrived in Warsaw just for a day, but it’s expected to join LOT’s fleet next year. We are looking forward to it.
Let’s stick with aircraft, or more specifically, with airports, as this month we write a report on a very special place. No matter what airport ranking you look into, you will always see Singapore Changi airport around the top of the list. This is hardly surprising, because it’s a place which in just 30 years of its existence has become not only a transportation hub, but also a huge attraction by itself.
Let’s now go to the ground and see what’s going on in hotels, because we like them, as well. Sometimes, however, we are totally fed up with the conditions they offer. Do you want to know more? Check the article where we list 101 reasons why people hate hotels. In this issue we also describe our (mostly positive) impressions on Radisson Blu Elizabete in Riga, Crowne Plaza in Hong Kong, Havet – a seaside hotel in Dźwirzyno, and Angelo hotel in Katowice.
Club Med is a chain that offers all-inclusive vacations at its resorts around the world. This month we look closer at the luxurious Da Balaia resort in Portugal. We also write about the tricks of trade of online travel agencies, and analyze the issues related to currency conversion. You will learn here how to exchange your money without unnecessary losses.
Finally, we invite you to London, Amsterdam and Seoul, recommending you the best way of spending 4 hours there. I hope that you will also enjoy reading other articles we have prepared in this issue. Have a nice and peaceful flight.
