The neighborhoods surrounding the city center provide a glimpse into Sydney’s real charm—its beautiful blend of diversity and creativity.

Surrounded by modern high-rise buildings, Singapore’s Katong neighborhood of Joo Chiat was the first designated “Heritage Town,” a designation recognizing the vibrantly colored two-level homes and shops that have lined the streets since the early 1920’s.

Dating back to 1975, Baltimore’s pride celebration has evolved from a series of small rallies to a full weekend of events that attracts more than 30,000 revelers each year. Here’s a look at what’s planned for 2017 and ways to enjoy pride in Baltimore any time of the year:
Montréal est une belle ville. And if you don’t speak French, you will still do just fine there. There’s something truly magical about Montreal, and it’s not just the poutine. When there, it’s as if you’ve been transported to another continent, as the city is unlike anywhere else in Canada. Located on the waterfront with a healthy mixture of historical as well as modern architecture, Montreal has a little bit of everything. Visitors shouldn’t miss places like the Notre-Dame Basilica, where Celine Dion was married, or the cobblestone streets of Old Montreal (where the best poutine shops are located). But beyond the obvious, there’s a lot more the city has to offer.
Celebrate with Pride in all these amazing and unique neighborhoods.
Often overlooked for its sister city, Cape Town, Johannesburg is actually a fascinating place to explore and get to know, if you know where to look. As with any developing metropolis, Jozi has its questionable neighbourhoods, but mostly, it’s a city longing for more attention.
Explorers and researchers have been visiting the continent of Antarctica for decades, although throughout history, the voyages getting to the mostly untouched land have been met with tales of unprecedented struggles and defeat. Today, thanks to modern ships and experienced crew, getting to Antarctica is no longer what it once was.
Calgary has always been a destination for anyone who loves mountains and winter sports, as it’s situated near the Canadian Rockies and nearby some of the most beautiful national parks in North America. The city itself has seen an exponential growth in the downtown area, and the restaurants, bars and boutique businesses can attest to this.
What do we know about Baltimore? Of course, we know the common misconceptions, often blamed on a television series that was filmed there, and that it’s also relatively close to New York City, Washington D.C. and Philadelphia, making it kind of the perfect getaway from any of the three cities, or from anywhere really.
The best way to reach Riviera Maya in Mexico is by flying into Cancun, but don’t let that scare you off so easily. Yes, Cancun is known as a party destination and is typically overflowing with a fascinating mixture of college students, first-time international travellers from the U.S., as well as cruise ship folk. But that being said, the airport is ultra convenient and jumping in a rental and driving right out of there is typically pretty easy.
The rain shower feels incredible and the sounds of the dripping water to the ground below is a beautiful reminder of the height of which the shower is situated, which can be unsettling at times, as are the monkeys nearby, but in the end, the experience is unparalleled.
Just like any other major metropolis going through a change, it takes time for the development of new neighborhoods...but with change comes imagination, innovation and transformation. And Baltimore isn’t wasting any time in showcasing their city as a cultural destination with hip, new and big ideas, like Light City, a 7-day light festival set in the heart of Baltimore.
Hong Kong is a thriving metropolis known for its towering skyscrapers, pristine public transportation, world-class shopping, abundance of Michelin star restaurants and an arts and culture scene that rivals cities around the world.
