The World's Top Five City Stopovers for High Flyers

LONDON, ENGLAND -- (Marketwired) -- 12/17/13 -- "Once a year, go some place you've never been before." Dalai Lama. Wise words are being taken to heart as Brits ditch classical off the shelf holidays to broaden their horizons, with memorable tailor-made holidays arranged by Bridge & Wickers.

Bridge & Wickers shares its expertise and experience to give holidaymakers the freedom to create the adventures of their dreams. Unlike the vast majority of travel companies they don't try and 'squeeze round pegs into square holes.' They acknowledge that everyone is different and everyone has their own expectations of what a luxury holiday means to them. Bridge & Wickers go that extra mile to build an entire holiday around the needs of their customers from start to finish.

Whether you seek peace and tranquillity, history and culture, or the buzz of an exciting cosmopolitan city, Bridge & Wickers has a High Five list of top stopover destinations to help those who want to get the very most from their next luxury holiday.

These are the five stopover cities Bridge & Wickers has judged to be the very best the world has to offer:

Singapore - Referred to as 'The Switzerland of the East', Singapore is renowned for its pristine appearance and excellent service. It's the ideal gateway if you want to expand your horizons and travel into other parts of Asia. There's an amazing amount to do and see in the city to suit all tastes and interests. From shopping to fabulous eating places to wonders of the natural world.

Sydney - The idyll of luxury experiences, Sydney is a feast for all the senses. It works as a destination in its own right as well as a gateway to exploring other parts of Australia or going on to New Zealand. Using Sydney as a base you'll find you'll be able to explore further afield as little or as much as you want to. There's plenty to do and see for all ages. Include Sydney as a stopover, a starting point or stay and enjoy its delights for the entire duration of your holiday.

Los Angeles - Perfect for a stopover on your way to New Zealand and the island of the South Pacific - you can add a three day break to your itinerary and see the spectacle that is L.A. You don't have to be a film star to get a real buzz out of this fabulous city. Stay in luxury accommodation and enjoy the good life in true Hollywood style.

Hong Kong - A favourite stopover on long haul flights, Hong Kong offers a plethora of fascinating experiences to woo you into thinking you're already at your final holiday destination. Bridge & Wickers can arrange for you to stay for a few days so that you can soak up the atmosphere and get a real feel for Asian life and culture.

Dubai - For many years Dubai was simply a middle of the night pit stop between here and there. But, thanks to the opening of some of the best hotels in the world, Dubai has become a destination in its own right. With perfect winter weather and a wised white-sand beach, it makes great sense to rest here and catch your breath. If there's a snag to the Riviera of the Middle East, it's that you've only managed to clip seven hours off your journey (and four hours' worth of time zones) but at least you're just a one-stop hop away from Oz.

You'll be given as much, or as little, looking after as you want when you arrange a tailor-made luxury holiday with Bridge & Wickers.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable.

While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture. Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations might...
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved.

Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Le...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...

We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year.
