With fees on the rise and service quality on the decline, flying commercial these days can be an unpleasant experience. Fortunately for fliers, some airlines still put customers first. This is a list made by Skytrax - a United Kingdom-based consultancy (originally known as Inflight Research Services), which runs an airline and airport review and ranking site.
Skytrax holds an annual World Airline Awards and World Airport Awards as well as the ranking for airlines and airports. About airport we will talk later soon and now here is the list of the best airlines according to Skytrax!
I did try some airlines from the list and you can find my comments in italic !
1 Cathay Pacific
The airline's operations include scheduled passenger and cargo services to 168 destinations in 42 countries worldwide. "To Cathay Pacific, a great flight is not just about providing a smooth check-in, good food and comfortable seats, it is about anticipating what a customer wants before they need to ask".
I am glad that this airline is number one now. But my personal experience are not always good. During my flight in June 2014 the stuff was rude and with bad attitude - and I was flying business class actually. Yes, it was only once from all my Cathay Pacific experience (and I did fly more then 10 times with them already) but treated once like that I don't really want to use it again. So if I did my own listing I wouldn't put it #1, sorry :)
2 Qatar Airways
Headquartered in the Qatar Airways Tower in Doha, the airline operates a hub-and-spoke network, linking over 125 international destinations across Africa, Central Asia, Europe, Far East, South Asia, Middle East, North America, South America and Oceania from its base at Hamad International Airport, using a fleet of more than 100 aircraft.
I m sure its one of the best! Heard so many good thins about them from my friends! Will try it soon in my way to Dubai next year!
3 Singapore Airlines
is the flag carrier of Singapore which operates from its hub at Changi Airport and has a strong presence in the Southeast Asia, East Asia, South Asia.
I love them! Very good airlines! And you must choose them when flying with kids - sometimes they give toys, sometimes different kid's card games and always special kid's cups for drinking water. And food is good, service is attentive and polite, plus entreatment during flight. And I never had any issues with them! Highly recommended by my family!
4 Emirates Airlines
Emirates operates over 3,000 flights every week across its network of 140 destinations in over 70 countries across six continents from its hub in Dubai.
Have nothing to say about them yet
5 Turkish Airlines
With 247 destinations, the airline is the fourth-largest carrier in the world by number of destinations. It operates scheduled services to 41 domestic and 206 international airports in Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Americas.
6 All Nippon Airways
is a Japanese airline. It operates services to 49 destinations.
I wanted choose them to fly from Manila, Philippines to Tokyo, Japan in December, 2014, but there are no flights in the mornings so I booked Philippine Airlines already. But there is always next time.
7 Garuda Indonesia - low cost airlines
It is named after the mythical giant bird Garuda of Hinduism and Buddhist mythology. The airline operates flights to a number of destinations in Southeast Asia, East Asia, the Middle East, Europe and Australia from its main hub.
8 Asiana Airlines
is one of South Korea's two major airlines. it operates 14 domestic and 90 international passenger routes throughout Asia, Europe, North America, and Oceania.
Its actually good airline for me. I like their service but it became less nicer then before. I fly both - economy and business class. Airplanes on some destinations looks old, interior are not nice and no tv. But everything was fine when I fly business class, same good food and good attention.
9 Etihad Airways
is the flag carrier airline of the United Arab Emirates. Established by royal decree in July 2003 and based in Abu Dhabi. The name derives from the Arabic word for "union". The airline operates more than 1,000 flights per week to 96 passenger and cargo destinations in the Middle East, Africa, Europe, Asia, Australia and the Americas.
I personally love it! I would give them number #1 place! Great airplanes and interiors, great service, great food - I love everything about them! Even economy class is a pleasant experience! I personally recommend them especially for long distance flights.
10 Lufthansa is the flag carrier of Germany and also the largest airline in Europe. It operates services to 18 domestic destinations and 197 international destinations in 78 countries across Africa, the Americas, Asia, and Europe
Let me know about your experience during flights with this airlines! Especially with Emirates, Turkish, Garuda and Lufthansa airlines which I have no idea how good are the flights and companies are! And wait for Airport Listing coming soon! Have a good day!
The world is too big to limit only with 10 most expensive hotels in the world. So I need to add 5 more one of the best, exclusive and most expensive escapes in the world. Check my extension of the list.
1 The Ritz-Carlton Kyoto, Japan
The Ritz-Carlton, Kyoto sits serenely on the banks of the Kamogawa river, in a prime location with expansive views of the famous Higashiyama mountains. All of the guestrooms and suites offer full views of the Kamogawa River and Higashiyama Mountains.
It is the most expensive hotel in Japan which I could find. Deluxe Double Room - 740$ for two with breakfast.
This Ritz Carlton property is spectacular. You walk in through unassuming sliding doors that allow the amazing property to open up before you. It is unlike any other Ritz Carlton property with a design and atmosphere which is contemporary, rich but light and sensitive to its surroundings on the river in central Kyoto. The rooms are great, the service is fantastic.
Kamogawa Nijo-Ohashi Hotori, Nakagyo-ku, Kyoto 604-0902 Japan, Phone: +81 75 746 5555
2 Amankora & Spa, Bhutan
is a unique circuit of lodges set throughout the Kingdom of Bhutan’s central and western valleys. Descending from 7,000-metre peaks in the north to the low-lying plains of the south, Bhutan’s rivers have forged deep valleys separated by high mountain passes. Historically isolated, each valley’s scenic beauty and topography affords visitors an opportunity for unique journeys of discovery between them. Beautiful architecture with austere white-washed exterior walls and really cosy interiors. The tall, narrow and deeply set windows generate beautiful and constantly shifting interior light. Beautifully decorated rooms with really comfortable beds and your own private fireplace. The service is top-notch. All staff members are very friendly and try to fulfil your every wish.
Amankora’s spiritual pilgrimage offers guests both a humbling and enriching experience. For a safe pilgrimage through the Kingdom, receive a blessing and light Yak-butter lamps in the secluded Wangditse Lhakhang (temple). Take time to reflect in the tranquility of the ancient altar room.
Visit Cheri Goemba, the first monastery established in Bhutan, and absorb the vibrant spiritual energy of the Goemba’s altar room through reflection or meditation.
At the 7th century temple of Kyichu Lhakhang, have a long life blessing and Buddhist name bestowed.
Price I found is 1075$ per room for two with all taxes and additional charges.
3 North Island, Seychelles
The rate is ridicules... Cheapest price is 3462$ per person!!! So if two of you - 9624$ for two! And it doesn't include transfer to Island where you get by helicopter or boat only.
But the place is amazing. 11 villas with over 100 staff! The privacy, peaceful setting makes the north Island a relaxing, safe, care fare hideaway! Its super stylish, utterly cool, and completely tailored around you. Sleep with your room open to the sound of the surf and maybe the odd turtle burying eggs. Luxuriate in outdoor showers or in a king sized bath. Each villa has a butler and there is no menu, the chef will cook what you feel like having whenever.
Your wallet must be fat but if you have some extra money then this is the best island vacation on the Planet!
3 Fregat Island, Seychelles
One more super expensive hotel in Seychelles. Rate starts at 8300$ per night for two with all taxes and charges.
A mere four degrees south of the equator, this tiny lump of granite seemingly floating in the Indian Ocean is a sensitively developed, verdant paradise, the likes of which you imagine when the theme tune to Desert Island Discs drifts from your radio speakers. Traditional-style villas made from native mahogany and topped with thatched roofs provide your base, while talcum-soft sand will fast become your foot exfoliator of choice. The whole island is taken up by Fregate Island Private, so absolutely everything is taken care of – all you have to do is turn up and flop out.
Seven beaches, private butler service, spa, a wine cellar, boutique and gallery, library and etc.

I fly pretty often and I am so tired of all of this similar safety videos that I don't even pay attention to them. But I know now what airline to choose to make my flight fun and safe. Enjoy watching this not boring safety videos, they are really cool!
1 As the official airline of Middle-earth, Air New Zealand has gone all out to celebrate the third and final film in The Hobbit Trilogy - The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. Starring Elijah Wood and Sir Peter Jackson; we're thrilled to unveil The Most Epic Safety Video Ever Made. Special cameos by Sylvester McCoy, Dean O’Gorman and Weta Workshop co-founder Sir Richard Taylor. Directed by Taika Waititi. Enjoy!
2 Thomson Airways Safety Video
This is the cutest in flight safety film ever! It actually makes you want to listen!
3 Philippine Airlines Safety Video
Very nice and creative! I already watch it on one of the flights.
4 The new Virgin Australia (formerly Virgin Blue) safety video.
Funny and innovative.
Designed to be quick, engaging, instructional and light without compromising the important elements of flight safety. Shot without the use of aircraft interiors, allows this video to be easily adaptable and interchangeable between existing and next generation fleet.
The safety video was filmed over 20 hours on a Delta 777 in Detroit. More than 100 people including 20 actors, 80 extras, six flight attendants and a pilot are featured in the video dressed in 80's fashions including authentic Delta flight attendant uniforms, leg warmers, hair scrunchies and neon colors. There are also cameos from some of our favorite 80's stars including basketball player Kareem Abdul Jabbar, who had a cameo in the movie "Airplane", as a Delta first officer. We also have our favorite '80s alien, Alf, and even an original member of Devo, Gerald Casale, safely storing the popular energy dome.
Buckle up to get down. They have enlisted the help of Virgin Produced, Director Jon M. Chu, Choreographers Jamal Sims and Christopher Scott, Song & Lyrics by Todrick Hall, Composer/Producer Jean-yves "Jeeve" Ducornet, Virgin America teammates, and dance stars like Mike Song and Madd Chadd to give safety video a new song and dance -- literally. From the exit doors to the oxygen masks, no seat belt was left unbuckled.
Golden Girl Betty White proves age is just a number as she gives us the old school version of Air New Zealand's in-flight safety.
Chromeo helps Mallard Air make its safety video a whole lot funkier :)
What can be better then to start your trip in a positive way? Guys from those airlines got it already! Lets pack our luggages and fly to new adventure!!!
What a travel without visiting nicest restaurants of your destination? Especially staying in one of the most expensive hotels in the world which I featured earlier it is must try to eat in the most expensive and best restaurants in the world too!=)
And again I did my own listing because existing Most Expensive Restaurants In The world list which I found in the internet are not really correct after I checked them one by one. Japan and France gave birth to 60% of the most expensive and best restaurants in the world.
And here we go!
1 Nihon Ryori Ryugin in Tokyo, Japan
It a small Japanese restaurant on a corner of Roppongi. I like the description on their website: "The richness of the "excellence of taste" of the natural ingredients that spreads throughout your mouth and the feeling of happiness as they travel into the body is a sensation that cannot be described in words. I believe the delicious flavours that are subtle and yet at times powerful, can only flow from authentic ingredients and when experienced with the aroma and warmth of the meal, is a most joyful feeling. Our and as chefs are present when we honestly and distinctly convey the that nature has fostered. In a kitchen where treasures of "natural ingredients" from all around the country are gathered, occasionally we gently help the ingredients up onto their dishes. To the extreme where the delicious flavours leave you speechless..." It did make me craving for good Japanese food!!!
There are only one menu set which cost 250$ per person plus 10% Service Charge.
Also there are no easy way to make reservation. Reservations for the following month are accepted from the 1st of the current month. For guests living overseas, they only take reservation through hotels. And good luck to get available table! My friend tried to book it for 2 years already and only got success now, so will wait him to come back to hear his experience.
Side Roppongi Building 1F, 7-17-24 Roppongi, Minato-ku, +81 3 3423 8006.
2 Arashiyama in Toya, Hokkaido, Japan
If money is no object, then Arashiyama Kitcho, where a meal can cost 463$ per guest plus service charge and taxes, without drinks, is the obvious choice. The service, setting, ingredients, preparation and presentation are all first class. If you’re looking for a place to dine with geisha, this is a good bet. Foremost Japanese restaurant in the nation and boasting international renown, Arashiyama Kitcho stands at the top of the restaurant business. Kunio Tokuoka, the young owner of Kyoto's Arashiyama Honten, has pursued the endless promises of Hokkaido's ingredients and brings you the authenticity of Japanese cuisine.

3 Kitcho, Kyoto, Japan
Described as the high temple of kaiseki -- a ceremonious multi-course affair that originated with Japanese tea ceremonies, is one of most famous ones in Japan. Many politicians, business people and artists are known as frequent customers. It is situated in the western outskirts of town, near the bottom of a hillside overlooking Kyoto. The premises are large by Japanese standards, with various private rooms set amongst attractive gardens. Average bill is 600$ per person. It should be noted that there are even costlier menu options, bringing in rarer ingredients. If you want to indulge in traditional kaiseki dining then Kitcho is the restaurant that sets the standard that others should aim towards.

The all-inclusive six-course option will cost around $320 per person (plus a 10 percent service charge and 8 percent tax per person). You have to do it once and since you spent the resources to get here, why not?
Conrad Maldives, Rangali Island, 20077, Maldives
5 Restaurant Le Meurice in Paris, France
"A pure cuisine which turns simple into good. Real taste is returned to its truth, without any superfluous ingredient. Preparations are purified to leave room to the strength of taste. Going back to basics is also to respect the rhythm of the seasons, when the product is at its best. For Alain Ducasse (he is main chief), the meal tells a story, the table is a stage. New tableware finds its way to restaurant Le Meurice. Unique table objects give the tempo. Original creations by Pierre Tachon, or valuable pieces of Japanese craftworks by Shinichiro Ogata. Alain Ducasse seeks to renew the image of haute cuisine." Very french description of restaurant from their website! If I want a grand-slam experience of Gallic gastronomic grandeur won't do better than the glamorous dining room at the Hotel Meurice in the heart of the city.
Menu items a la cart: Scallops, tartufi di Alba - 177$, Lobster, potatoes flavored by the sea - 150$, Guinea hen, cepe mushrooms - 150$, Chocolate from their Factory - 44$. So ordering this I will get bill for 521$.

6 Restaurant Pic in Valence, France
La Maison Pic is more than a century old. Sophie Pic is the owner and chief of the restaurant Pic. She is France's only female chef with three Michelin stars. It's in her blood -- she's carrying on the family dynasty started by her great grandmother in 1889. There's no shout-y male chef nonsense here -- it's subtly and exquisitely classy. Anne-Sophie is known for putting her own twist on classic menu dishes that have been served going back to the 1930s. If her cooking had to be summed up in just three words, it would be respect, taste and simplicity: a particularly feminine simplicity that laughs off the quest for perfection and asserts itself with direct flavours. You might let out a little scream at the $405 Essential set menu (with all service charges and taxes). It includes CARROT WITH JASMINE BLOSSOM, BEETROOT IN THE PLURAL, BERLINGOTS, LANGOUSTINE, SCALLOPS FROM NORMANDY, AUBRAC BEEF, BRIE DE MEAUX WITH BOURBON VANILLA AND CHEESE CART, THE SULTANE FIG AND CURRY FROM MADRAS. Actually there are more options for desserts.

Bon Appetite! You might getting hungry after reading post and watching pictures. I did! Will go check something in my refrigerator. But after all my food will look so boring... So need to save a little to afford dinning in all of this restaurants. Let me know if you already experienced delicious food in one of them!!!
I was searching about most expensive hotels all over internet. But I couldn't really find any official list. So many lists but every time I check information in, I found a lot of mistakes and wrong information: not correct rates or prices only for Presidential Suits but not for an average rooms in the hotel. But my main purpose to find the most expensive hotel in general for their price for standard room. So I did my own research and did my very own list of the world's most expensive and exclusive hotels in different popular destinations. Analysis was based on prices for standard room for two.
By the way I always write about places and hotels which not only interesting to read about but which I really plan to visit. This list of exclusive hotels are different. For sure I will try my best to experience as much as I can but I don't think (but I still hope) that I can visit all hotels in this list without robbing a bank.
And, finally, the list of most expensive hotels:
1. Le Dune, Forte Village Resort, Sardinia, Italy
It is the one of the most exclusive escapes in the world! An average rate of 3000$ per day! The Le Dune located on the Mediterranean Island of Sardinia. As the resort occupies one of Italy’s stunning locations, this exclusive hotel offers a high profile ‘Made in Italy’ feel and a unique sense of charm. 15 years Forte Village Resort has held the title of the World’s Leading Resort. In 2010 and 2011 it was also named the World’s Leading Green Resort.
2. Royal Mansour Marrakesh.
Its so beautiful hotel-palace! The simples room is One Bedroom Riad - 140 sq.m. with balcony. Cheapest price is 1114$ per night with breakfast for two. Mansour was commissioned by Morroco’s king himself and His Highness did not troubled his self with some matters of a less-important nature: like setting the budget for the project. Instead he employed hundreds of artisans over three years, with one aim: to create the most lavish hotel of all. The result is a remarkable, elite place. This luxury hotel is a place of refinement, elegance and artistry.
3 Hotel Pitrizza in Sardinia, Italy.
Its kind a not easy to find rates for this hotel because it is very difficult to find any available room online. The cheapest I found cost 984$. The outstanding Hotel Pitrizza has won international acclaim for its elegant yet traditional styling and its world-class service. Inside, the soft pastel colours and traditional carved furniture are in tune with the island's heritage. Elegant rooms feature private terraces and luxurious en suite bathrooms, some with sea views. Days can be spent by the huge granite-hewn pool, on the beach or at the hotel's exquisite beauty spa. Lunch is served at the poolside barbecue. In the evening, intimate candle-lit dinners are served on a terrace overlooking the bay.
4 SKYLOFTS at MGM Grand, Las Vegas

They will pick you up from airport by limo, escorted to your private lobby to check in, then escorted to your private elevator and up to your room where you will greeted by your private butler holding freshly made drinks. Good life!!!
5 Bulgari Hotel and Residences- London
The cheapest Superior room which I found online rate is 1261$ without breakfast. It is 40 sq. m. with floor to ceiling windows. In a city of old dilapidated and vastly overpriced hotels the Bulgari Hotel stands out, despite it's unassuming entrance. The leather modern finish, the details of every corner, the Bulgari fridge, the bathrooms, the Spa, the marble finish of the swimming pool, the suites, the location for shopping or Hyde park, the Bar menu-the finger food , the greatest cocktails the friendliest waiters and hotel reception... Best luxury hotel in London!!!

The Superior King Room is 1328$ per night without breakfast. The Four Seasons have build along the years a solid reputation for state of the art luxury and comfort!
9 Peninsula Hotel New York
It is the most expensive hotel in New York. Actually there were many options to choose from and it took me some time to make a choice. After studying all prices, promos, packages and etc. I can be sure that this hotel is the leader.
A 23-story, 1905 landmark building, The Peninsula New York has retained many of the hotel's original Beaux Arts architectural features, designed by Hiss and Weekes. The result is one of modern accents on old-world elegance, and the Peninsula consistently ranks among New York's top five luxury hotels. The Peninsula New York is ideally located for either the business traveler or the tourist. Located on Fifth Avenue and 55th Street, it resides in the heart of New York City's most prestigious shopping, cultural, and business neighborhood, in midtown Manhattan.

It is the most expensive hotel in Florence! The simplest Deluxe Room is 715$ for two. The room is 20-25 sq. m. St Regis Florence – Ultra Luxurious Hotel In The Heart of Florence.

The sand at this Hawaiian beach is green because of the surrounding volcanic mountains.

As its name suggest, olivine is responsible for turning the sand green.
