Who they are: Hipcamp
What they do: Connect rural landowners with campers looking for a spot to pitch a tent that’s off the beaten trail
Why it’s cool: If you’ve ever tried to book a campsite at a popular Northern California campground in the busy summer months, you understand how frustrating the experience can be. Prime spots fill up six months in advance, often the very minute they open reservations online. As travel writer Betsy Malloy put it in a recent post on tripsavvy.com: “you have to plan farther ahead for next year’s camping trip than you would for an African safari.”
San Francisco-based Hipcamp is trying to take the headache out of planning a camping trip by turning more places into campgrounds. Sure, you can use the site to book a space at a public park, but you can also reserve a corner of a private ranch, vineyard, farm or rural backyard. No tent? Prefer glamping? No problem. Reserve a spot that comes with a yurt or a treehouse.
“It just makes getting outside a lot simpler for people, and in many cases, more relevant,” said founder and CEO Alyssa Ravasio.
Hipcamp launched in 2013 as a reservation platform for public camp grounds, and expanded into private land in 2015. Landowners who list their properties on the site receive $2 million in liability insurance to protect them in case a guest falls during a hike or has some other mishap during his or her stay.
Where they stand: Hipcamp grew its number of campsites by 10 times this year compared to the year before. The platform now lists 15,000 sites on private land, 400 of which are in the Bay Area. Campers can pitch a tent in a lush garden in Bolinas in Marin County, book a yurt on an old tennis court in Mare Island Preserve in Vallejo or reserve a treehouse in Petaluma.

Are you worried your Airbnb guests are running amok? Or are neighbors complaining about your loud parties? If so, NoiseAwaresays it has the solution. The company, which calls its service the “smoke detector for noise,” uses its sensors to monitor decibel levels at your property and alert you if things get too loud.
On the company’s website, CEO David Krauss says he started the company after renting his condo on Airbnb to a guest who had a “rager,” angering his neighbors, prompting a cease-and-desist letter from his building, and ultimately forcing him to sell the property.
Prices for the NoiseAware system range from $149 per year for a condo, to $399 for an “estate.” Learn more at noiseaware.io.

If you’re a man, unless you’re abnormally attractive, you may be better off not wasting your time on the dating app Tinder, according to a recent study posted on Medium and picked up by CB Insights. The researcher, who goes by the online handle Worst-Online-Dater, used a quantitative socio-economic study to determine the bottom 80 percent of men (ranked in terms of physical attractiveness) are competing for the bottom 22 percent of women. The top 78 percent of women are competing for the top 20 percent of men.
Many Silicon Valley tech leaders are speaking out against President Donald Trump’s move to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, and Uber Chief Technology Officer Thuan Pham, an immigrant himself, recently added his voice.
In a blog post, Pham recounted leaving Vietnam with his mother and brother when he was 10 years old, and crossing to Malaysia in a fishing boat crammed with 470 other people, and no life jackets. His family ultimately was rejected from Malaysia and had to travel to Indonesia, and then the U.S., where they started their lives over “with empty hands.”
“Immigrants often risk their lives for a chance at freedom and opportunity, and our country remains the world’s beacon of freedom and opportunity,” he wrote. “Immigrants have built and contributed to America since its very beginning, and are at the center of our social fabric and economic prosperity. My heart breaks to see so many people who are in the same situation today that I was in many years ago.”

The world’s oldest intact working lighthouse is based in Ireland and it is now offering sunset tours. They will take place at the 800-year-old Hook Lighthouse, which is situated at the tip of Hook Peninsula in Wexford, on the corner of Ireland’s Ancient East.

“Watching the sun go down at the tip of the Hook Peninsula is a memorable experience,” lighthouse manager, Ann Waters, tells Lonely Planet. “We are delighted to introduce the sunset tours this season, and are considering the possibility of holding sunrise tours in the winter.”
Hook Lighthouse will offer sunset tours. Image: Hook Lighthouse
According to Ann, visitors from across the globe enjoy climbing the 115 well-worn steps of the tower during the tour, stepping back in time and exploring its thick-walled chambers. Taking visitors on a journey back through time, they first meet the life-size hologram of fifth century monk, St Dubhán. According to legend, the monks from Dubhán’s monastery erected the first fire beacon to warn seafarers to keep away from the dangerous rocks, and he describes the freezing nights he spent with fellow monks warning sailors against danger.
As they ascend to the second floor, visitors meet another life-size hologram, Knight William Marshal, who was called “the greatest knight that ever lived” by the Archbishop of Canterbury. Marshal built the tower 800 years ago to guide shipping to his port at nearby New Ross, and also built Kilkenny Castle and Tintern Abbey. Up on the third floor, visitors can hear tales of times gone-by from a lighthouse keeper, before stepping onto the top floor outdoor balcony to take in the panoramic sweeping views of the southeast of Ireland.

Visitors can savour Irish mead, prosecco, tea and coffee along with smoked salmon on homemade brown bread, a selection of canapés and mini desserts, while enjoying the stunning sunset from the balcony and the newly-opened lighthouse watch room. “Enjoying this vista of the sunset at the end of the day is something we have enjoyed at the lighthouse for many years,” says Ann. “We’re delighted to now offer this as a shared experience to visitors with the added flavour of some local and Irish food produce.”

The Sunset Tour Experience will be on offer at 8pm on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays until the end of September 2017 by advance booking only. General guided tours are on offer seven days per week at Hook Lighthouse. See here or call 00 353 51 397055 for further information.

City breaks are usually a short, simple way to see somewhere new, but it can be easy to get stuck in the rigmarole of ticking off tourist attractions and generic sightseeing excursions. So for those interested in delving a little deeper, it's worth seeking out the growing number of alternative city tours – offering ways to view a more “real” side to a destination, or experience sights that are off the radar for most visitors. Here are our chosen few.
Passage of time: New York City
View some of Manhattan’s most spectacular Art Deco architecture on a tour through the back streets of Midtown, led by a guide from the New York Obscura Society (atlasobscura.com). Midtown may be the city’s tourism heartland, but this tour offers an insight into some of its best-kept secrets, from luxurious public toilets to secret passageways that avoid the crowds. Even the most hardened urbanistas will gain a new perspective on the city that never sleeps. Next tour takes place 23 September; from $25pp (£19).
Anime attraction: Tokyo
Addicted to Pokémon Go? Go straight to the source and head for Tokyo, where you can take a walking tour of the city’s anime shops (tokyowalkingtours.com). Covering classic Japanese anime such as Dragon Ball, Hello Kitty and Naruto, to name a few, this tour also offers the chance to visit the Pokémon Centre – where you can pick up official merch – as well as other specialist anime and manga stores. From 20,000 yen (£145) for groups of six.
Then and now: Barcelona
Relish the opportunity to explore Barcelona’s gothic quarter, while also doing something good for those who now live in the area. Homelessness is a growing problem in the Spanish city; more than 3,000 people sleep rough on Barcelona's streets today. Hidden City Tours (hiddencitytours.com) trains and employs guides who are homeless, so they can utilise their extensive knowledge of the city while finding meaningful employment. Each tour traces a route personal to each guide, teaching you about the city's history as well as its everday realities. From €15pp (£12.50); under 12s go free.
Friday night lights: Berlin
Berlin is a fantastic destination – and even more thrilling after dark. Alternative Berlin’s Twilight Tour (alternativeberlin.com/tours/twilight-tour) offers you the chance to experience private parties, live music and night markets in lesser-known neighbourhoods, visiting secret spots on the fringes of the city. No specific itinerary exists for the tour as it changes from night to night, though you shouldn't expect it to be low-key: the company describes it as "not for the faint-hearted". From €20pp (£16); pre-booking essential; over-18s only.
Saddle up: Amsterdam
To experience Amsterdam properly, you need to live like a local – and that means getting on your bike. With itineraries taking in street markets, bookshops, outdoor festivals and much more, Alltournative (alltournative-amsterdam.com) organises various bike tours of the city, including one focused on street art, led by a resident graffiti artist. Some itineraries can be led by the visitors themselves – with no set schedule, you choose what you want to see. From €22pp (£18).
The hotel’s owner, Hideo Sawada, says he wants to make this “the most efficient hotel in the world” by reducing manpower and having 90% of staff be robotic. The hotel is in the Huis Ten Bosch theme park in Sasebo, Nagasaki. Designed to resemble the Netherlands, the park is a sort of Dutch Disneyland, with gardens, windmills and tea shops – and so far most hotel guests have been Japanese families visiting the park. The hotel itself is a beautifully designed modernist property, with techy additions such as aircon that adjusts to guests’ body temperature.
At 3pm the velociraptor jerks to life and says, in an
American accent, “Welcome to the Henn-na hotel. If you want to check in, press
one.” I start tapping the screen but the man in black appears again and asks
for my passport, leaving the robot to fall into a state of inertia. How
We have selected a few of our favorite Spanish restaurants in Spain, some of the country's most important and visited countries, so if you visit Alicante you can get the best taste of cuisine, or where to taste the best Paella in Valencia.
Our list includes national and regional cuisine restaurants as well as some of the best and most avant-garde of creative cuisine, all of them mixed with traditional touches as well, so you can get different perspectives of current Spanish cuisine too.
Our Spanish restaurants in Spain lists include a price list (because we know that quality does not necessarily mean expensive), a short description of each restaurant and some dishes recommendations, some our own, others the own restaurant's chef, so you will get the best out of your gastronomic tour through Spain.
Traditional Spanish cuisine is still extremely popular and there is no better place to get a taste of some true Spanish food than in Spain itself. One of the unique things about Spain is that every Spanish region and city has its own style of cooking and its own signature dishes which means that you will find a huge range of Spanish food in the restaurants and bars when you visit Spain.
If you are looking for the best in traditional Spanish food then you should definitely head to some of the olderSpanish restaurants in Spain as they have been cooking the same dishes for years, if not centuries, and so have perfected the technique and ingredients.
However, traditional doesn't mean to say that the food has to be old-fashioned and historical, as many Spanish chefs and their restaurants have proved. Traditional food can be joined with funky presentation, or chic surroundings, making the time-honoured dishes is exciting as many of the modern dishes in the new restaurants of Spain.
Spanish cuisine, and particularly in the area of gastronomy, has taken some giant leaps forward in the recent years, breaking the traditional boundaries of Spanish food as we once knew it. It is becoming quite common for Spanish restaurants in Spain to update their menus to suit modern palates and tastes by adapting dishes and changing their ingredients. Some restaurants have even taken it a step further and have spent a great deal of time and care in developing their food into true works of art.
Going to a Spanish restaurant in Spain is about much more than just the food. The atmosphere and the overall experience can often mean a lot more. That is why so many Spanish restaurants to develop such an experience. Many have tried to create their own theme, or incorporate elements of a certain culture; all with the aim of entertaining all your senses and not just your taste buds.
There are a number of lucky restaurants who are blessed with magical natural surroundings. For example, thoseSpanish restaurants that can be found along the seafront, such as those to be found in places like Valencia, Málaga and Marbella, have excellent views of the sea, coupled with the fresh air and the natural background music of the crashing waves. Land bound Spanish restaurants have to rely on the landmarks of the city in which they are set. In Granada, Spanish restaurants often have excellent views of La Alhambra or the other examples of ancient architecture.

Want to feel the wind in your hair as you ride through the sky? A bit like the cable car equivalent of an open-top bus, the Cabrio cable car has two decks, with the roofless upper deck providing unbeatable photo opportunities of Lake Lucerne below, unobstructed by glass panes or even the cables themselves, which are connected to the sides of the car. The route up to the 1,900-metre Stanserhorn starts on an 120-year-old funicular railway; the Cabrio makes the final trip to the summit, where the panoramic theme can continue with dinner at the Rondorama revolving restaurant.
