We spent the night at hotel Baghani (firstname.lastname@example.org), which cost us 60$ for a small but very pleasant room with a T.V, air-conditioning, a decent shower with warm water, mosquito-net, a fan and a safe. We ordered the room in advance since we traveled at the beginning of the high season. I suppose that if you come at a less busy time you could get a better deal.
Mr. Charles. is the biggest and most famous guest house in Hsipaw. There are rumors about the owner's relations with the military Junta, so some people prefer not to stay there for political reasons.
The guest house offers a variety of rooms in different classes and prices, including laundry services. There are some really fancy rooms compared to other guest houses in the town, and they offer free guidance and information about the area and things to do. A few guides visit the place every day, and answer travelers questions in the big yard.
Mr. Charles arranges excursions to the nearby villages, boat trips down the Dotthawaddy river. It offers half day trips (round trip and 4hrs walking) to the farmer's villages, where you can see seasonal crops and living style of Shan villages. You can also take boat trips to SHAN monastery, plantations of pineapple, papaya, orange, and overnight trips to the shan villages, water falls, the tea mountain and Palaung villages.
The old town around the Venetian harbor is very picturesque, and you can see a lot of buildings that survived from Venetian era. It’s a labyrinthine of alleyways, and you can stroll there almost all day long. There are a lot of small hotels in the area, and we stayed in one of them. in a very nice room with a balcony overlooking the harbor.
We planned to spend the night in “Chateau Frontenac”, but so did a lot of other people… luckily we found a room in another exclusive hotel – “Lowes La Concorde”. We had our breakfast at “L’Astral” restaurant at the top of the hotel – an amazing experience for the kids.
Ernest and Hadley Hemingway left Paris on September 1923 and went back to Toronto, where they had their first son. They returned to the city of lights on January 1924 and rented a small apartment at 113 Notre Dame des Champs, a street where the French writer Victor Hugo used to live. During that period, Hemingway helped the English novelist Ford Madox Ford edit the "Transatlantic Review," an influential monthly literary magazine that published works by James Joyce, Gertrude Stein, John Dos Passos, Hilda Doolittle and Hemingway himself.

Day 1 – The alleys of the old city
We landed at 7:30, picked up a Renault Scenic diesel from the Sixt Car Rental Company, and headed to “Castelleto Hotel” in Cavtat, hoping we could check into our room early – and we did. The price for the night wasn’t cheap (€75), but we didn’t like the thought of having to look for a hotel upon arriving.
