Ah, the romance of train travel ... even commuters feel it. There’s something oh so Alfred Hitchcock, Agatha Christie and Harry Potter about chugging down a track on the way to some wonderful — perhaps even mysterious — destination, your bag neatly tucked above you, a book in your lap, your journey ahead. The scenery outside passes by like a film in fast motion. The seats (comfortable on most global trains, even in second class) feel like super-plush movie theater lounge chairs. Each train car, like a narrow living room, boasts its own mood depending on fellow travelers and the ministrations of attentive staff.

Industry trackers tend to focus on large companies, as they can easily gain statistics from their movements. But, in fact, small- to medium-sized businesses, which comprise the majority of Global Traveler’s readership, represent the largest-growing segment of business travel.
Nashville’s once-modest skyline continues to evolve as its luxury market grows. Lavish hotel properties are added to the landscape while acclaimed chefs stake claim in the robust culinary scene and premier cultural offerings round out the city’s repertoire.
While London’s dining scene never fails to interest all who visit, moments of culinary glory aren’t as easy to come by as they once were, particularly in a post-COVID-19 era of tightened budgets, recovering supply lines and staff shortages. Thankfully, that’s not always the case — and Nipa Thai, located across from Hyde Park at Royal Lancaster London, is proof.
