The guides they selected were very good and, in three cases (Seoul, Hoi An/Hue, and Angkor Wat) simply outstanding.

Preferred Hotels

South Korea

South Korea is a trendy place to visit. The delicious Korean barbeque, the fascinating cultural sights, the shopping, and the activities, are all huge draws for tourists to the area. Of course, Psy’s recent hit sensation ‘Gangnam Style’ has popularized the already hip Gangnam area, which happens to be the home of one of our favorite Korean hotels, the Ritz Carlton Seoul, which serves up some of the finest dishes in the city and provides a stunning selection of rooms and suites. The Banyan Tree Club & Spa is another favorite, located at Mount Namsan, only a quick 10 minute jaunt from bustling downtown Seoul. This Banyan Tree is truly special, with a breathtaking array of facilities that include an indoor ice-rink, basketball and tennis courts, and more. Did we mention the hotel also features private pools in individual rooms?
