It’s hard to not feel a little culture shock visiting Hanoi. Crossing a busy six lane highway with no traffic lights required a huge leap of faith, but people slowed down and drove around us.
Otherworldy, mysterious, breathtaking — a few words that come to mind when viewing Hạ Long Bay. I don’t know how Sophie can look so serene in this heat and humidity!
On the 104th floor of the St. Regis Shenzhen is an eclectic restaurant with an unparalleled view.

Sophie grew up in Seattle, and I come here a lot on business. However, it remains one of our favorite destinations.
