If a giant snow maze sounds as irresistible to you as it does to us, head to Winnipeg, Manitoba, to experience the largest snow maze, to be included in the Guinness World Record. Each year from January to March, an enormous, 30,000-square-foot snow labyrinth is created at the Amaze in Corn site. Enjoy breaks along the way at cozy firepits and, should you find your way out, stay for a horse-drawn sleigh ride; a swoosh down a toboggan run on a giant snow hill; a warming mug of hot chocolate; and a meal at The Den, a restaurant carved out of an estimated 500,000 pounds of snow.

Time your visit to take in the Festival Du Voyageur, Feb. 16–24. This beloved winter festival is the largest in Western Canada and features colossal snow sculptures ranging from wild creatures and castles to art installations. Many of the artists will be on hand, and once they’ve shared their snow sculpting secrets, festivalgoers can enjoy live music, browse for handcrafted souvenirs, and taste plenty of traditional French-Canadian and First Nation foods.

Hôtel des Grands Voyageurs Review

It’s often declared Paris’ Left Bank, or La Rive Gauche, the local side of the Seine —  where bohemian and chic are used superfluously, albeit with some veracity. It only makes sense that travelers looking to stay on the Left Bank would seek as local an accommodation as possible — Hôtel des Grands Voyageurs is the new kid on the block and certainly delivers this with its design following the likes of a Parisian art collectors’ residence.

Seoul Garners Good Fortune on a Wave of Cultural Popularity

First came the musical mega-hit, “Gangnam Style,” in 2012, leading the band PSY to the top of the charts, only to be followed by other beloved K-pop bands like BTS. Then, in 2020, Parasite became the first non-English-language film to win the Academy Award for Best Picture. The following year, the latest in a long line of Korean television shows or K-dramas, Squid Game became Netflix’s most watched series and the most watched program in 94 countries. Add the rise of Korean fine dining around the globe along with the demand for K-beauty products and high fashion, often influenced by the traditional Korean garb called hanbok, and you arrive at the cultural phenomenon called hallyu, or the Korean Wave. Indeed, South Korean popular culture, with Seoul at its epicenter, reached such a status Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts installed a hallyu exhibition, currently on display through July, which originated at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum.
