Culture seeking in Osaka

Osaka is a historical city with a rich backstory and a unique personality, which makes it a haven for culture seekers. Having emerged as a small fishing village in the 5th Century, it flourished during the Edo period and has become a cosmopolitan global metropolis. Travellers can discover Osaka’s heritage at the dramatic Osaka Castle and elegant temples and shrines, such as Sumiyoshi Taisha and Shitennoji. The city’s contemporary vibe comes alive in Namba, the high-energy entertainment district home to Dotonbori, the waterside dining street. For a truly immersive cultural experience, the National Bunraku Theatre showcases the ancient art of Japanese puppetry.

Centara Grand Hotel Osaka is a brand-new five-star hotel that puts travellers in the heart of the city’s Namba district.

Set in a gleaming 33-storey tower, the property features rooms and suites suitable for every guest, such as solo visitors, couples and families, plus an eclectic collection of restaurants, a fitness centre and SPA Cenvaree. At the end of a day of discovery, the alfresco rooftop lounge is the perfect place to sip sunset cocktails and listen to live DJs. Rates start from USD 62++/ night.

Underwater Adventures in the Maldives

 The Maldives is a dream destination for nature lovers, with vibrant underwater ecosystems that teem with exotic marine life.
