West End, Glasgow

The area of Glasgow – once the second city of the British Empire – every visitor should stay in is the West End. Centred on the much applauded Byres Road, where many of the area’s most feted restaurants, bars, cafés and shops can be found, the West End has long been home to both the affluent, who occupy its striking sandstone townhouses, and students and staff from Glasgow University

Dwayne Wade, Our man in Orlando

Miami Heat’s Chicago-born guard has won three NBA Championships and is one of the best-known and loved players in the National Basketball Association. But off the court, he likes to keep life simple. He says: “I’ve been living in Miami for 11 years, so I’ve been to so many places – too many. But you know what, I still try the restaurants out"


Washington DC - Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner with Daniel Boulud

Chef Daniel Boulud, who recently opened DBGB Kitchen And Bar in Washington, DC, reveals his favourite places to eat in the city. He names Bread Furst Bakery, Daikaya and Rose’s Luxury


Into The Wild, Empty Quarter, Abu Dhabi

Emirati photographer Mohammed Ahmed Ahli bought his first digital camera in 2010. Just three years later he set off into Rub’ al Khali (known as the Empty Quarter) to indulge his passion for nature photography and returned with a collection of striking images that capture the majesty of the largest sand desert in the world


Casablanca to Fez

Adrian Mourby recalls a solitary Moroccan road trip from Casablanca through the Atlas Mountains to Fez. He starts his journey in Essaouira, which means “the beautifully designed small fortress” in Arabic, and indeed it is lovely. Orson Welles filmed his version of Othello in this town, with its whitewashed walls, on Morocco’s Atlantic coast. Cat Stevens hung out on the beach in the 1960s


Last Look, Los Angeles

Maddie Dolan, 18, is an Agricultural Business Student photographed at Pamona, The Grove. She says: "I live in Los Angles because I go to school here at Cal Poly Pomona, but I love the fashion, the culture and learning new things about the city. I’m here at [outdoor mall and entertainment complex] The Grove today shopping with one of my girlfriends"

Light House Cinema, Dublin

Light House Cinema’s chief programmer Charlene Lydon watches at least one film a week. She says: “Part of my job is going to the major film festivals, so I’m lucky enough to catch some really early screenings of the big awards films alongside the exciting ‘sleeper’ indie films. I really loved Damien Chazelle’s incredibly tense and brilliant Whiplash, a film about drumming that plays like a thriller – wonderful”


St Petersburg - Hotels, Restaurants, Bars and Galleries

Russia’s second city is also its cultural capital. Explore the city’s stylish bars and clubs, where the young set stay out late; dine in world-class restaurants; and set aside time to wander its neoclassical streets. St Petersburg is a living monument to Russia’s glorious past – and its creative present. St Petersburg was swampland before Peter The Great built the Peter And Paul Fortress


Surf House, Dubai

Surfing and stand-up paddle boarding are taking off in Dubai, and Surf House is at the epicentre of this laidback beach culture in the emirate. In the mid-1970s, Dogtown’s Z-boys introduced surf-style skating to California’s streets. Almost 15 years later, and a world away, that tide was turned; skateboarders returned to the sea, and surfing found the blue waters of Dubai
