News of the week: Riu Palace Macao, London and Evasion's race

August 3rd 2012 -

Riu Palace Macao in Punta Cana

 

Some news that came to my ears during the last week.

 

New section Premium economy at WestJet

The airliner WestJet will make some changes to its aircrafts this fall to offer a new category of seats, premium economic seats. The main attraction of this new development will be more space for legs, 36 inches (91.5 cm). Some services the priority boarding will also be included in this new category of seats.

Reopening for Riu Palace Macao Resort

 

Tomorrow is the day the hotel Riu Palace Macao Punta Cana Resort will re-open after major renovations for more than $ 14 millions. With its 364 rooms, the hotel will retain its colonial style, but will offer holidaymakers many amenities, such as different styles of restaurants (steakhouse, Italian, Japanese ...) and hydromasssage tubs in their suites.

 

Few tourists in London during the Olympics

For a week the eyes of the world have turned to the Olympic Games in London. To beat the crowds and the endless traffic jams, authorities warned tourists "usual" as the Olympic period was perhaps not the best time to visit the capital. It seems that the message was so well understood that many hotels and restaurants of downtown London noted a significant drop in visits from other years, despite the contribution of the Olympic delegations. Train travel in and out of London against a known good rise during that period.

If you think of visiting London, this list of 20 free attractions of Lonely Planet magazine is to read. If you've read or seen "The Da Vinci Code," Temple Church surely will evoke you some memories!

 

Check out the finalists in the race around the world

For some years now, the Quebec's TV channel Evasion presents the race around the world. This is 10 videographers who leave do stories around many contries and whose results are published on the specialty channel. For the 2012 edition, now is the stage of selecting the finalists, which were tested as to produce a report about Montreal. You will therefore have an overview of what the 2012 season reserves around the world!
