Tasty, affordable Vietnamese food in Amsterdam? Yes! During the day when Restaurant Chow is closed, the staff of Nghia N Nghia take over the kitchen and restaurant to serve their limited, but delicious menu of Vietnamese street food. It's easy to go past as they have no sign. Just look for the ship painted on the window and the white gate to the terrace. Not going to lie: I've been there twice in one week. The spring rolls are amazing, huge, ... read more
filling and fresh. I tried the baguette sandwich as well but liked the spring rolls better. They also have salads and of course, pho. The location is also perfect in that they have a leafy green terrace for sunny days and a cozy, candlelight interior on cold rainy days (I've experienced both and they were both great!) The servers are still getting used to the drill so it can sometimes be slow but they are super friendly and accommodating. Will definitely be back for more!

Very impressive aquarium in Toronto's Waterfront section. Love walking along the section with sharks on either side and swimming above you. Open till 11pm at night
Ifaistou 2, Athens, Greece
Natasha B's rating:
This was a super cool bar and restaurant that features a rooftop terrace with, as the name suggests, 360 degree views of Athens! You might overlook the small entrance at street level but once inside you just have to go up the stairs (or take the elevator) to reach the rooftop level where you can sit and drink a cocktail or try a yummy Greek-fusion dish with the Acropolis in this distance. Lots of young and trendy Athenians are here in the summer ... read more
drinking frappes, cappuccino freddos or a creative cocktail! A very cool experience!

Beautiful lake fun get away for the weekend. I would highly recommend staying in redding and going to the lake for the day. The only drawback is besides the lake and caverns there isn't much else to do.

One of six Canadian National Parks in the Rocky Mountains, Mount Revelstoke is the smallest and most unique. Should be visited with nearby Glacier National Park.

Lido island is carachterized by Liberty villas which were once built by rich upper class between 1800 and 1900. They are so beautiful and reveal the once upon a time luxury island

Hanakaruta (Sathorn) is a nice Japanese Sake bar and restaurant located on Soi 10 in Sathorn. It is the second and newer Hanakaruta sake bar, with the first one located on Sukhumvit 39. Hanakaruta has an extensive sake, wine, and cocktail list and also a menu serving some Japanese food and sushi. Being a sushi lover, I only ordered the sushi, which was fresh and delicious. The cocktails at Hanakaruta are very good as well. The sake bar is only a ... read more
two minute wall away from the new Bangkok hotel, W Bangkok, so if you are staying there definitely stroll over to Hanakaruta for some food and drinks.

The Madison by Loew's. Just look at that bed! I'm glad I toured about for 8 hours on Day 1 because I fear I will never get out of t h a t b e d!!! The bathroom is absolute heaven, and one of my favorite brands for shower products in stock. Great staff, nice restaurants, and that bed! (No coffee maker in room, but nice coffee bar in lobby). Great location by monuments, White House and transportation. Great spot indeed!

Cindy 's rating:
Parisians hated it at first (some still do), but no one can deny that the Pyramide du Louvre is one of the most snapped places of Paris, and well deserved so. It is also the most popular (but not only one) point of entrance to another wonder: the museum itself. It is a beautiful sight, especially at sunset or night (when it lights up), and a must visit.

Located in an old Victorian house, Novel offers simple but flavorful dishes that hold their own and also do not over power each other. Staff are knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. Recommending Melon Salad, Duck Neck Dumplings, and for dessert, Peach Fritters. On a great weather day, ask for the second floor patio. Pictured: (left to right) Rabbit sausage, Pig head pie, Corn soup (1 order split 3 ways; seasonal), and Sea diver scallops

Sarah McCormack's rating:
Not to be confused with AUT which is across the road, Auckland Uni has a sprawled out campus across several blocks. If you're into heritage buildings, I recommend walking along Princess Street to see the Clock Tower, Church and walk back into Campus to see the Old Government House.

Basin 141 is my new Happy Hour Hangout! Great food, a great selection of craft beers and top shelf alcohol all served in a comfortable neighborhood bar atmosphere. You can tell that this is an obvious favorites with locals and even the nearby businesses as the bartenders were on first name basis with many. They even remembered my name on my second visit! At this point, I've only sampled the Happy Hour menu, but based on my experience, I can't ... read more
wait to try the dinner/brunch menus. All of the tacos I tried were excellent, but the standout for me was the pork belly taco with the corn salsa. That corn salsa had me scraping my plate for every single kernel. The beef slider is another stand out option. One word of warning, the Garlic fries are tasty, but they're heavy on the garlic, so you may want to go with the Sweet Potato fries if you're on date. There are plenty of booths and there are bar tables in the front and back to handle groups. I prefer the bar with a great view of their big screen tvs showing the big game(s). There is metered street parking out front, but free parking in the back with a convenient back entrance. The bathrooms are spacious and clean. I can't wait to come back here for brunch!

One of the best vacations I had in a long time. Almost everywhere you'll go the view looks like a painting. August is a good time to visit if you are campaign since the night can be really cold in the area.

Wow, I didn't know Daly City had such a large mall. That's some prime real estate. I haven't really been around the Day City area, as you can tell. My boss took me here for lunch because they source their vegetables from local farms and the beef comes from a farm in Marin County that treats their cows humanely and doesn't use hormones/antibiotics. They only have 6 locations around northern Bay Area (2 in East Bay, Daly City, and 3 in SF). I'm ... read more
glad I got to come here to try their food! I made my own burger - the 1/3 lb patty on wheat bun + pepper jack cheese + sauteed mushrooms + sauteed onions + garlic curly fries. YUMMMM. The burger was so juice and delicious! They offer a few different variations of burgers on the menu, or if you prefer you can make your own. If you don't like burgers, give their sandwiches, Philly Cheesesteak, and salads a try. The garlic curly fries are KILLER! My meal was slightly pricey at about $11, but it was a quality burger! I'm just sad I couldn't finish all of my fries...I was stuffed!

Hyde and Seek is a upscale gastro pub located on Soi Ruamrudee in Bangkok. The location can be a bit difficult to find, but if you're keen to go tell the taxi driver to take you to the hotel "Athenee Residence," because Hyde and Seek is connected to that. The food at Hyde and Seek is a blend of European, Asian, and American. The food is pretty good, but pretty pricey. I enjoyed the amazing cocktails the bar had over the food. The cocktails were ... read more
some of the best I've had anywhere. The bartenders conjured up some awesome drinks both on the menu and by request. Hyde and Seek is a nice upscale spot to hang out at in Bangkok.
Rick Qureshi's rating:
Great vacation spot in Mexico. Unfortunately the prices are adjusted for US tourism. But still a good deal. Numerous resorts and restaurants. Beware the time share sharks at the airport. Make sure your rental car contract is correct and you take a picture of all sides of the car before you leave! The rental car places with US names are privately owned and they will try to scam you!

Just magnificent! Visited the exhibit with my daughter and she absolutely loved every single piece he had and had the most wonderful time. It's also great that it's next door to the space needle.
