Heidelberg, Germany
With its half-ruined castled dominating the heights above the university-town on the banks of the Neckar river, Heidelberg is a pedestrian's dream. "Picturesque" may have become a cliché, but this German city exemplifies the meaning. I'd been here...

Rosenthaler Str. 132, 10119 Berlin, Germany
Berlin is a sprawling city, which makes exploring exclusively on foot a considerable challenge. If long walks or jaunts underground don't appeal to you, test out the city's bike-share program, Call A Bike. It looks similar to Paris's beloved Vélib...

White Mesa, New Mexico 87053, USA

St. Lawrence's Parish, Macau
People flock to Macau to gamble. There's nothing wrong with that, but it's a shame when time at the roulette wheel takes away from exploring what is otherwise a brilliant little colonial-era treasure. Macau's old cobbled streets are brimming with...

Hàng Đào, Hoàn Kiếm, Hà Nội 100000, Vietnam

Sankt Peders Stræde 47, 1453 København, Denmark
Just like any other metropolitan city, Copenhagen has its challenges with busy commuter traffic during peak hours. Except in Denmark’s capital, where over 50% of locals travel to work on bicycles, it’s the bike jams causing concern. That’s a good...
