Japan, Tokyo: Palace Hotel Tokyo Debuts Mid May 2012
Palace Hotel TokyoWith an incomparable perspective on the city and a singular, moat‑side location beside the Imperial Palace, Palace Hotel Tokyo opens mid May 2012, following a JPY 90 billion (US $1.2 billion) investment in the mixed‑used development.
The new 290‑room property succeeds two previous hotels, the Hotel Teito and Palace Hotel that occupied the same site from 1947 and 1961 respectively. Like its predecessors, Palace Hotel Tokyo will preserve its independence and a distinct commitment to homegrown hospitality.
"This hotel is Japanese through and through, from its ownership and management, to its service protocols and its picture‑perfect location by the Imperial Palace gardens and moats," said Palace Hotel Tokyo President, Takashi Kobayashi. Meeting capacities for up to 1,500 guest complete the hotels offer.

ANA targets 20% cut in carbon emissions
ANAJapan's largest airline group, is launching a new environmental program with the goal of reducing its carbon emissions by 2020 by 20%. Named "ANA Fly Eco 2020", the plan introduces more fuel efficient aircraft into the ANA fleet, use of bio fuels in place of aviation fuel and other fuel efficient procedures. The new CO2 reduction target means a cut in emissions per revenue ton kilometer by a fifth over the 15‑year period until 2020.
A key element in reaching the target will be the expansio n of the fleet of Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft, using 20% less fuel, based on its revolutionary carbon fiber structure and the fuel efficient engines. ANA is the launch customer for the Dreamliner and plans to have 55 Dreamliner in service until 2018.

A vast array of landscapes - from dense pine forests and craggy mountains of the north, to the rolling hills and glossy golden beaches of the south - the gap widens even more when you take the country's urban centers into account. Malmö, Gothenburg and the capital, Stockholm - each with their own distinct character, compelling histories and wildly varying architectural styles are also very stylish, modern and sophisticated and both, cities and countryside offer incredible venues.

Turkey
Vast open spaces, massive mountain ranges, fertile valleys, rugged coastline, fast-growing cities and sleepy villages, on top of this, a rich history has left an indelible mark. The country overflows with historic sites and archaeological wonders, such as Pergamom and Ephesus, and modern cities set in a varied and beautiful landscape. Istanbul, still very much the pulse of the nation, has even more to offer, with Roman aqueducts, Byzantine churches and Ottoman mosques and palaces.
