on Jan 8, 2016 in Travel

Why not make 2016 the year you try something completely new? While people are traveling more than ever, there are still unimagined adventures to be had, says Tom Hall, editorial director of Lonely Planet, which this week released its free e-book New in Travel 2016 at “People are looking for brag-worthy experiences — the excitement and the exoticism about travel that gets them on the road in the first place.” He shares some favorite adventures recommended by Lonely Planet correspondents with Larry Bleiberg for USA TODAY. Sleep in a suspended pod Calca, Peru Hanging out in Peru takes on a whole new meaning when you book a night in a transparent room suspended from the side of a mountain. “I’ve never seen anything quite like this before,” says Hall. “You’re overlooking the Sacred Valley, one of the most popular places to stay in the country.” Trampoline underground Gwynedd, Wales Northern Wales has found a clever use for one of its long-dormant mines, turning a former industrial site into an underground trampoline park. Visitors find rope ladders and slides, and a trail of trampolines stretching nearly a mile. “It’s like a giant game ofChutes and Ladders. When my kids saw it they went absolutely nuts,” Hall says. Eat through hawker stalls Singapore While Singapore’s known as a business center, its dynamic food scene is surprisingly robust. Hall recommends grazing its hawker courts, which feature an array of Asian foods, influenced by Chinese, Thai and Malaysian dishes. “They offer rows upon rows of stalls. It makes a brilliant introduction to the cuisine of the region, and how people spend their time and socialize.” Top recommendations: Chinatown Night Market and Maxwell Food Centre.

Aventura Mall was recently included in a Women’s Wear Daily story on mall holiday traffic, which was part of a special section distributed at the International Conference of Shopping Centers convention. For the piece, WWD Retail Editor David Moin spoke with Jackie Soffer, Co-Chairman and CEO of Turnberry Associates, owner and manager of Aventura Mall.

We have more demand for space than we ever had.” According to the article, Aventura Mall’s recent enhancements include the addition of Cartier, Brooks Bros., Louis Vuitton and Lacoste, along with an expanded Lululemon. The shopping center is also set to undergo an expansion, mostly for small shops. “People still want to go out and be entertained, especially when they are on vacation and shopping is a big part of it,” Soffer told...
