A lot, as we discovered on our stay there last month. And then there was the umm.. interesting location. Bur Dubai, where the Mélia Dubai is located, again wouldn’t be among my top list of

Essential Hong Kong: Our list of things to do in Hong Kong

Staying at the Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong – An unmissable experience

To say that we’re fans of the Mandarin Oriental group of hotels would be an understatement. It is by far our favourite luxury hotel chain, and we’ve experienced their hotels across the world.
