Downtown Los Angeles -- view from the Hollywood Hills (or at least above them). Home of LA Opera, LA Phil, Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels, LATC. lots of good arts! You call it a vacation, I call it home.
02 Lounge inThe Ritz-Carlton, Moscow has a funky interior with a domed glass and steel roof and striking Faberge chairs, but it is the views out across the Red Square and the Kremlin that make this one of the best bars in Moscow.
Rooftop pool at Hotel Unique, Sao Paolo, Brazil, is huge. It also has an underwater sound system which makes the experience even more memorable. Since it is right under the sky, the water beautifully changes its hue too according to the time of the day.
