Travel Hedonism Recommended Destination

You may recognise Gaudi’s masterpieces of La Sagrada Familia, Parc G├╝ell, La Pedrera and others from the plethora of photos splashed across travel guides. These colourful images are captivating. However, photos do not evoke the same emotions as actually being in Barcelona, a city with an electric energy - morning, noon and night. Its shopping districts are diverse, combining charm and trend and the small cobblestone streets hide many undiscovered gems. Some of the world’s most imitated tapas bars were created in Barcelona and manage to combine tradition with contemporary design and a hip crowd. The beach is certainly worth discovering, either during the day to soak up the Spanish sun or at night when the marina transforms into a buzz of beach-fronted clubs with famous DJs. Add to this, the funky shopping, hip bars and the emerging luxury boutique hotels – many with rooftop sanctuaries - and you’ll agree that Barcelona is a hedonist’s paradise.
