The Next Great Place

Nov 1, 2012
2012 / November 2012

I attended a hip, happening cocktail party in Chestnut Hill, Philadelphia, last month, and the subject of travel came up with just about every person I spoke with. Of course, they all wanted to know the top destinations I visited and wanted to share stories of their journeys to Rome, Russia, Sweden, Panama, Japan, Fiji and many other locations. I am often asked my favorite destination, and I reply, “The next place I go.” Honestly, I seldom dislike a destination; I think we can all find areas of interest in nearly every place.

This is what sets Global Traveler apart from other publications: We truly have readers who embrace travel and make it part of their total lives. They discuss travel when they can, decorate their homes with masks from Borneo and other artifacts from their global jaunts and look forward to their next trip — whether it is near or far. Every issue of GT can inspire you to find your next destination or help you relive one from the past.

We are gearing up for the end of a year in which Global Traveler saw many improvements in the products you regularly use. The redesign of the print magazine has been a great success and portrays our goal to reach the business/luxury traveler. The website will be undergoing great changes in coming months and will be much more user-friendly, with original articles and daily content.

Our next issue will feature the results of Global Traveler’s annual reader survey and the Airline and Hotel of the Year selections. This is a much-read and anticipated issue; the survey is your opportunity to rate the industry’s products and services — and the companies do listen to your comments.

Until next month, enjoy the next great place Global Traveler takes you — near or far — and recall your best trips!

Cheval Blanc Paris Review

Since Cheval Blanc, an extraordinary, newly designed and refurbished 72-room hotel owned by Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessey, launched in September 2021, it has been the talk of the town. Le Tout-Paris remarks about its WOW factor … and the hard-to-get reservations for the 30 seats at Plenitude, the intimate, first-floor gastronomic outlet headed by chef Arnaud Donckele, who earned three Michelin stars at Cheval Blanc Saint Tropez. Reservations are also recommended for Limbar, the ground-floor bakery/café/tea shop/bar where we watched Pastry Chef Maxime Frédéric preparing desserts and an absolute must-have for dinner at Le Tout-Paris, the 7th-floor, all-day brasserie. This brightly colored space, with its raised seating and Fauve-like floor tiles and the adjacent Milanese restaurant, Langosteria, both have access to terraces facing the Seine River, with amazing views encompassing Notre Dame to the Eiffel Tower.
