    Weekend Guide To... Tokyo

    December 21, 2011

    Japanese capital and most populous city in the world, Tokyo is full of people and full of life! Famous for its incredible concrete panorama, technological innovations, fashion innovations, old world shrines and stone lanterns, anime/manga, VERY fine dining, Sake, the Shibuya Crossing, HUUUUGE shopping malls, karaoke, big men in giant diapers and a lot of never-ending neon nightlife. Sounds like PUMA Social, right?

    If you thought your last late night curry was HOT, the Malaysian capital city will spice up your PUMA Social life like no other! With enough colours, religions, spontaneous friendly people, super-impressive architecture, stunning city parks and bustling nightclubs, “the KL” (as the locals call it) is the all-you-can-eat buffet of international travel - YUM!

    December 08, 2011

    Lying on the south west tip of the African continent, Cape Town is famous for its biodiversity (wildlife and stuff…doy!), harbour, weather, beaches, Newlands, City Bowl, Table Mountain and the Cape of Good Hope to name but a few! It’s also the perfect middle earth (no, not Lord Of The Rings) destination for a travelling After Hours Athlete/adrenaline junkie with a penchant for the extraordinary.

    Weekend Guide to... Toronto

    December 01, 2011

    This golden nugget of a city, perched on Lake Ontario looks like a shiny island nebula popping from out of the water like something those fishy Atlanteans left behind. We like to think, however, that Toronto is more like a giant late night party boat ready for you to get on board! The city’s motto is ‘Diversity Our Strength’ - a testament to the amazing culture, night life, food, art, theatre (and the list goes on) waiting to be discovered. Just like Forest Gump’s box of chocolates, Toronto is a surprise waiting to happen, and there is something for everyone (yes, even the special soul who likes the orange creme…YUCK)!

    Melbourne, the sporting and cultural capital of Australia, home to two of Oz’s most famous T.V soap exports (Neighbours and Kylie Minogue), the legendary Steve Irwin, St Kilda beach, the National Gallery of Victoria, the Royal Botanic Gardens, MCG (Melbourne Cricket Ground) and a deep-rooted appreciation of the “amber nectar” – yes, PUMA Socialites will fit in perfectly!

    Weekend Guide To... Hong Kong

    November 10, 2011

    A cultural fusion of east meets west, the futuristic and the traditional; Hong Kong presents the ultimate awe inspiring playground for the After Hours Athlete. Smack bang in the centre of the global trade and business world, the average Puma-socialite is thought to rack up a seriously impressive 50 hour working week (!) however, worry not…for as we at PUMA know, those who work hard MUST play harder, which Hong Kong certainly has covered!

    Weekend Guide To...Alicante

    November 03, 2011

    Alicante - the place with the airport, right? Wrong. Disregarded by many as just an airport stopover, Alicante has recently transformed itself from a sleepy Spanish town into an increasingly stylish and cultural hotspot for tourists, residents and PUMA Socialites alike. Heralded the ‘cultural capital of the Costa Blanca’, Alicante offers a wealth of architecture and art alongside all the bars, clubs, restaurants and shopping you could wish for (and a beautiful Mediterranean climate to recuperate in the morning after!)

    Dublin, Baile Átha Cliath, in Gaelic, is the capital of the Republic of Ireland, situated at the mouth of the River Liffey, it is a historical and contemporary cultural centre for the country, as well as a place for education, the arts, industry and most importantly, the famous Irish “craic”! Dublin is the metropolitan embodiment of the PUMA Social lifestyle – around 50% of the population are 25 or under and are world-renowned for their no-holds barred approach to late night revelry.
