It was poet Robert Frost who first alluded to the idea of the road ‘less travelled’, of straying off the beaten track to discover pastures new. It is that bold, adventurous spirit that inspires so many worldly wanderers today, as more people than ever before set out to experience what the world has to offer.
Of course, it’s not always easy to find the hidden gems in a new destination – those authentic, once-in-a-lifetime places and experiences that can’t be found in guidebooks – and even the most seasoned of travellers can struggle to fully immerse themselves in an area’s charms. Such rarefied knowledge has to come from someone familiar with local culture and attractions: a real expert. That’s why the concierges at Raffles Hotels are equipped with a wealth of insider information, able to suggest any number of visits and excursions to surprise and delight their guests.
Here, we round up a selection of top concierge suggestions from three key Raffles Hotels locations; Paris, Seychelles and Singapore.
