"I would visit the Berlin Wall and try new foodie hot spots." —Victor Au Yeung, 28, Doctor

The former West is buzzy thanks to Bikini Berlin, a new cool-kid shopping center full of local high-design brands such as Gestalten. Next door, there’s the whimsical 25 Hours Hotel Bikini Berlin, whose rooftop restaurant Neni and Monkey Bar lounge are the city’s hardest-to-get reservations. November 9 marks the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. See it via a new food-focused tour from Berlinagenten, which includes meals at three restaurants along or near the wall.

Maria Leach posted to Facebook that her dream vacation would be chartering a private sailboat and exploring the Greek islands; A-List agent Mina Agnos can make this happen, with stops at Amorgos, Santorini, Mykonos, and the beaches of Folegandros.

For Sarah Jenks-Daly, wanderlust was inspired by a classic movie; she tweeted that “ever since seeing Indiana Jones, I’ve wanted to visit the historic sites of Petra.” We researched how she might follow Indy’s footsteps through Jordan’s famous archaeological site, recommending she start early to avoid the heat—and sharing our favorite local tour guide.
