Located in the eastern Caribbean Sea, Jade Mountain in St. Lucia is one of the most incredible resorts the Sifter has seen. Each room has only three walls and a private infinity pool with stunning panoramic views of the beautiful Caribbean. A tropical oasis, this slice of heaven doesn’t come cheap, with nightly rates ranging from $950 up to $2,700 US. One can dream though!

July 21st, 2011 – Perched on the hillside atop the waters of Pretty Beach , on the Bouddi Peninsula, just north of Sydney, is a surreal tree house called The Pretty House . The exclusive seven-acre property encompasses three one-bedroom pavilions that surround the main home. Each pavilion is rented out to guests who are lavished with an in-house chef, treetop views of the sparkling Brisbane waters, private decks for sunbathing, a wine cellar, heated pool, and a stunning 38 foot yacht to explore the waters (swoon!). The interiors are modern and saturated in warm, earthy color tones. It’s as if an old world traveler left his 1930′s travel trunks, hand crafted tables, fine Belgium linens behind and trinkets that document his adventures. The Pretty Beach House is truly a place of reflection and relaxation, to get away from the chaos and take a breath up in the trees.
Originally, a landmark literally meant a geographic feature used by explorers and others to find their way back or through an area. Now, a landmark includes anything that is easily recognizable, such as a monument or a building, or any other spot to designate places that might be of interest to tourists. A few examples are the Statue of Liberty, Uluru, the Taj Mahal, Mount Everest, and the Eiffel Tower. When we see one of those, everyone knows in which part of the world they are located.
Some cities die. The people leave, the streets go quiet, and the isolation takes on the macabre shape of a forlorn ghost-town - crumbling with haunting neglect and urban decay. From Taiwan to the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains, these abandoned cities lurk in the shadows of civilization. Their histories are carried in hushed whispers and futures stillborn from the day of their collapse. Some have fallen victim to catastrophe while others simply outlive their function . I think we can all agree on one thing - they are all very creepy.
