Bae Suzy of Korean girl group Miss A in April 2015 issue of Cosmopolitan Magazine [Kr] which was shot in London. It was during this trip when her romantic relationship with actor Lee Min-ho was officially uncovered by the paparazzi.
Video of Chinese New Year celebrations in London in 2014, with various events e.g. lion dance, dragon dance, music performance and other traditional shows.
In the “real” Chinese cities most people celebrate Chinese New Year with their family at home, a CNY festival of this scale is actually uncommon. In fact, some places like Kuala Lumpur are usually quite empty during this period as many have travelled back to hometown or vacationing somewhere else. Happy Lunar New Year.
Dutch financial company ING Group has launched a new brand positioning, World, Here I Come, in Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. As part of the campaign, ING created a series of Cities In A Click posters which offers travellers useful information to key travel destinations before they board a flight.
Ten local artists from each of the ten cities created an illustration that reflects their city. ING also worked with Lonely Planet to ensure each one provides insightful suggestions and tips. The featured locations are Hong Kong, Shanghai, Tokyo, Istanbul, Frankfurt, London, Madrid, Milan, Paris, and New York.
Love the idea. No spots from Africa, Oceania, or South America though. Perhaps those regions are not “key” destinations from ING’s perspective, but these multinational corporates need to show more sensitivity when making a global marketing campaign. Click picture for larger size.
No nature sceneries, and shopping is not recommended lol. Actually, the list is based on official visitor numbers, some places simply don’t have a headcount for that.
