London's rooftop restaurants and restaurants with views — Long a vast but low-rise city, London's skyline has only recently been perforated by blocks of buildings that could legitimately be described as skyscrapers. As the number of high-rise buildings in the capital grows, so too do the number of rooftop restaurants.

How to get unlimited private-jet flights with "the Netflix of air travel" — For voracious, moneyed travellers, a new all-you-can-fly package is promising unlimited trips by private jet for £2,500 a month. Launching in the UK in October, Surf Air began in California, where it has been facilitating tech entrepreneurs and media titans who have needed to flit between San Francisco and Los Angeles since 2013.

Ty Warner Mansion Rosewood Las Ventanas Mexico — Immense at 28,000sq ft (2,600sq metres), the mansion is more standalone resort than conventional holiday villa. Set directly on the beach, it features its own infinity pool with swim-up bar, a private spa, gardens, custom pool table and even a rooftop putting green accessed by private elevator.

SFMOMA San Francisco gallery guide modern art museum by director Neal Benezra — Having closed to the public three years ago to undergo a major extension, the significantly expanded SFMOMA, or the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, has reopened to the public. Now bigger even than New York's MOMA, the gallery incorporates expansive new gallery spaces designed by Snøhetta and features one of the world's most comprehensive photography collections.

Beaumont Antony Gormley ROOM London's strangest hotel suite — In their efforts to lure the world's wealthiest travellers, London's longstanding hoteliers have long contrived to create standout signature suites - many of which cost significantly more than £10,000 a night - but it is two restaurateurs who have managed to create a dwelling that stands completely apart from the conventionally luxurious options provided by the capital's grande dames - and it's available at a significantly cheaper rate.

Luke Dale-Roberts The Test Kitchen Saxon Pot Luck South Africa's best chef — It was the neon football shirt proudly worn by the man on the adjacent table that first caused me to consider that Cape Town's The Test Kitchen, commonly recognised as South Africa's best restaurant, doesn't put much stock in airs or graces.

Le Beauvallon hotel exclusive use holiday home Euro 2016 party house — With the brouhaha surrounding some fans' behaviour attracting almost as much attention as the games, groups of Britons eager to separate themselves from the mania during a last-minute break to Euro 2016 might be interested they can now reside securely and en masse in a former hotel that has been converted into one of the most lavish exclusive-use holiday homes in France.

How to visit the world's 10 best restaurants — Each year the World's 50 Best Restaurants award names its pick of the best restaurants in the world. With almost 1,000 industry insiders casting votes, it's a given that whoever wins can expect worldwide publicity, even though the judges' choices always provoke controversy and the judging process has been criticised by the likes of Joel Robuchon.

London's best summer pop-ups — In Bloomsbury, The Montague on the Gardens' newly launched Beach Bar will offer coconut and pineapple cocktails, palm trees, barbecued snacks and ice creams in a seaside-style setting complete with sand, thatched roof and jet ski.

Belmond Andean Explorer, South America's first luxury sleeper train — South America's first luxury sleeper train will commence service next year. Operated by Belmond, the company behind the Venice Simplon Orient-Express, the Belmond Royal Scotsman and Ireland's forthcoming Belmond Grand Hibernian train services, the Belmond Andean Explorer in Peru will cut across one of the highest rail routes on the planet and should provide a spectacular prospect from which to admire views of Cusco, Lake Titicaca and Arequipa.
