Holiday Getaways in the City
Seeing beautiful things that dazzle and sparkle always lifts our holiday spirit. How about taking a moment to embrace history while enjoying dazzling gold jewelry from the past? Asia Society presents spectacular works of gold found in the Philippine Islands during the last 40 years. Before the Spanish conquered and colonized the region, a number of societies thrived in Archipelago, the present-day Philippines. This gorgeous exhibition of 120 pieces of jewelry including necklaces, rings, collars and bracelets shows the indigenous people’s prosperity and exquisite talent. The exhibition runs through January 3rd.
Holiday season is perfect time to sit back, relax and pamper yourself. According to Foursquare, Aire Ancient Baths is “the best spa in town.” Inspired by ancient baths of Rome, Aire Ancient Baths features thermal baths, saunas with aromatherapy, an olive oil ritual and a red wine ritual that lets you dip in a bath with antioxidant grape wine! Yelpers tell us the massages were some of the best in town. Besides feeling like you’re stepping into a Roman or Grecian hot spring, dimmed candlelights and the sound of lightly bubbled fountains and Spanish guitar music make this place a tranquil and meditative getaway.
