Arun

A lifelong traveler, and vouching to continue to do so, pushing comfort zones along the way. Always searching for the luxury deal but open for a real steal as well. The best experiences I've had have come from others offering guidance - I hope to pay it forward.

After five years of living out of a suitcase for work, I gave it up to actually live in the city my mail gets sent to - New York City. Now I spend my weekends and holidays escaping the hustle and bustle to see the world - and sharing everything I've learned along the way.

We'd opted for the Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit, which, unlike its name suggests, is not a Sheraton, but rather, a Luxury Collection property....

  • Bagan, the center of the ancient Pagan Kingdom, is best known for the numerous temples that dot the vast city. During Bagan's hey day, 10,000 temples and pagodas were built between the 11th and 13th century. Today, only upwards of 2,000 remain, but that doesn't stop tourists from flocking to this historic former capital. Ever since Myanmar re-opened its borders to the world less than 10 years ago, visitors have raced to Bagan to see the temples first hand before the country becomes overrun with western influences and the untouched charm of this extraordinary city are lost forever.
