Along its 160 kilometres of coast beside the Mediterranean, the Costa Blanca has hundreds of different cities and countryside just waiting to be discovered. Denia, in the north of the province of Alicante, located between rocks and long sandy beaches, surrounds the traveller with its narrow streets and seafaring atmosphere. Nearby, two capes protect Jávea from the winds, and having had a swim in its crystal clear waters, you can walk through the historic centre of the town for a taste of history. Further south, beneath the impressive Peñón de Ifach, the highest cliff on the Mediterranean, we find Calpe, where its historic past is present in the streets which are alive with people and filled with opportunities of trying the local cooking. The same can be said for Altea, which is located in a bay in the shelter of the mountains. It is like a picture postcard with its white houses and the blue dome of its church shining in the clear morning sunlight

Competition is now in full gear amongst Asia’s top airlines, eager to capture the hearts of the rich and famous.
Of all the airlines in this very first class battle, Singapore Airlines reigns supreme with the all new, double-decker Airbus A380 featuring a double bed that sleeps you and a companion in your very own private suite. The 12 suites, created by yacht designer Jean-Jacques Coste, include fully closable doors for your absolute privacy, though no “mile-high” activities are theoretically permitted. How they will deal with any uncontrollable human passions in this flying Shangri-la is anybody’s guess?
And Singapore Airlines competitors are not taking this supremacy lightly, offering first-class amenities onboard such as vintage wines, personal mini fridges, gourmet cuisine, exotic perfumes and a host of services that would put even the very best hotels to shame. The only thing missing it seems, in this long list of unashamed luxury, are the Cohibas, which will probably appear one day but rather like the “private” double cabins you won’t be able to do much with them.
No airline service makes you feel more regal though than THAI’s aptly named Royal First Class. THAI prides itself on a ‘Restaurant in the Sky’ approach and an exemplary customer service, which begins when First Class passengers are greeted by a butler who discretely whisks them through check-in, immigration and security formalities. While you are waiting to board your flight at THAI’s hub in Bangkok, you can relax in their magnificent new first class lounge complete with sauna, professional masseuses and a yoga studio – far removed from the mingling masses outside.
The cost of all this upper-class hedonism doesn’t come cheap to us mere mortals, but then again “if you’ve got it, flaunt it”!
