Global gathering — We preview Origins, a photography exhibition at London's Heist Gallery, showing indigenous people in remote regions worldwide

Be Here: Fairmont San Francisco Penthouse Suite — Standing on the building's eighth floor, the Fairmont San Francisco penthouse suite may lack height relative to the city's other signature suites, but it isn't short of stature. Its origins date back to 1926, when John S Drum, the president of the American Trust Company, persuaded the owner of the Fairmont to build a lavish residence at the top of the hotel, and to lease it to him for $1,000 per month.

Sweden's Icehotel: magical moments in the Arctic — Last year, two Telegraph Travel readers won the chance to create their own suite in Sweden’s Icehotel - and in the process recounted a story that touched us all.
