New York Travelogue! Days 1 & 2 - New York | Zarek Rahman

New York Travelogue! Days 1 & 2 - New York | Zarek Rahman | Travel Destinations | Scoop.it


Epic?  Awesome? Fun? Just fantastic?  I don’t know how to introduce New York without saying something that’s probably been said a million times over. All I know is that we had the best time and I remember coming back home so depressed and wanting to just move out there for good (those feelings have now resided – probably because this post is about three months overdue – sorry!). It’s weird how familiar NYC seems when you go there, probably because of all the movies and stereotypes and cliches. And it actually really is all like that.  The yellow taxis, hot dog stands, Lady Liberty, the “I <3 NY” t-shirts, skyscrapers – I mean wow these are only a few of the things about NYC that have become so iconic world around. I guess that alone is a sentiment of the city and how special it is.  This place has a real impact and as soon as you step out of the subway you’re immersed in it – there’s no having to look on the map and search for it because it’ll hit you in the face....

Luxury Travel and the great call of China

Luxury Travel and the great call of China | Travel Destinations | Scoop.it

Destinations such as Australia, UK and America need to understand how to service the premium traveller, if they want luxury travel business from any of China's one million millionaires.

 

"We simply don't understand how to service the premium traveller," said Thomas, who believes elite Chinese travellers need to experience better human 'software' when they visit the West.

"The Chinese traveller wants to be handled by people who understand their culture, not just language," said China Luxury Travel Network's founder, Lin Xu.

Xu said that there were in reality about 2.7 million US dollar millionaires in China as many exist "under the radar". And it is a group that averages about three foreign trips a year, creating a booming luxury travel demand of up to nine million trips per year.

Millionaires, the rising middle class and brand-conscious aspirational travellers from the mainland account for about 25% of all international luxury brand consumption. Xu told the audience the total spend was about US$102 billion in 2012 with online spend alone worth around US$57 billion.

 

"China is modernizing, not Westernizing".

 

"Affluent Chinese travellers simply won't travel in big groups any more," said Xu. "The key to success will be if travel experiences really suit China's new consumer needs and trends".

Return to Collins Land

Return to Collins Land | Travel Destinations | Scoop.it

Collins Land is still very much a place of contrasts. For the most part, it is very rural in feel; grasslands, trees, a farm and country church, the plateau atop the cliffs a wooded park.. However, the main island also offers a slightly more urban feel to it – there is a paved road and sidewalks, street lights, a post box, bus stop and stone-built house with free-standing garage. There’s a children’s playground here as well, as a quayside pushing out to sea.
