This week, Travel Today With Peter Greenberg comes from the Hotel Amigo in Brussels, Belgium.

Joining Peter Greenberg will be legendary hotelier Sir Rocco Forte with a front line report on the state of hospitality, and Belgian Chocolatier Laurent Gerbaud will discuss why chocolate dominates Belgium.

Brussels Historian Roel Jacobs gives his special insight into the most iconic statue in Belgium: the peeing boy. Then we’ll get a report from American expat Chris Burns about what keeps him in Brussels.

Travel Today - Singapore

Author: Peter Greenberg
Wed, Dec 24, 2014


It exists at the threshold of history, a natural shipping hub and the meeting point of worldwide sea routes. Singapore is truly a melting pot of Asia, and it could easily be argued that the word fusion — if not invented here — is displayed better in Singapore than most other places around the globe. Here, at the tip of the Malay Peninsula, is where you’ll find fusion food (like foie gras man tou—French-prepared duck liver tucked into a steamed Chinese bun) and fusion languages (Singlish—a form of English you won’t find anywhere else). And that’s also where you’ll find Peter Greenberg Worldwide as we broadcast from the legendary Raffles Hotel Singapore. It’s a place that truly defines the old Singapore. The hotel was immortalized by Rudyard Kipling, Somerset Maugham, and Ernest Hemingway, and their legends live on here. We’ll tell some of those stories, and much much more.

Travel Today - Peninsula Paris

Author: Peter Greenberg
Wed, Nov 05, 2014


This week, Peter Greenberg Worldwide broadcasts from all-new The Peninsula Paris, but don’t let “new” fool you—The Peninsula Paris is located in a late 19th century classic Haussmanian building, which first opened as one of Paris’ most luxurious “grands hotels” in 1908. It’s been a hospital, a military headquarters and the hotel that inspired George Gershwin to write An American in Paris. The hotel has all the amazing (and expected) Peninsula touches, a great Chinese restaurant, and a real bonus: one of the greatest hotel rooftop bars in the world. From there, you can see every major Paris monument. Impressive by day….spectacular at night. Like my other favorite hotel, the Peninsula in Shanghai, the Paris version does it right. Joining Peter Greenberg this week are Pauline Wong Lemasson from the American Library in Paris, with the secrets of the city of light and the story of this remarkable library; Alec Lobrano, author of Hungry for Paris, who describes surprise food finds in Paris (great dim sum?) and gives his advice for making the most of a trip to Paris. Isabelle Garnerone, founder and editor of Edgar, describes the palace hotels of Paris. Also joining us is Roger Dow, President and CEO of the U.S. Travel Association, who shares his predictions on next year’s exciting U.S. travel trends.

The Wisconsin Dells has long been the summer vacation destination for many in the Midwest.

This week, Travel Today with Peter Greenberg comes to you from Sundara Inn & Spa, where nature meets relaxation. Sundara is a bit of an oasis in the midst of the the hectic waterpark destination, with many visitors saying stress relief is the number one reason for visiting the spa.

Travel Today - Cannery Row, Monterey California

Author: Peter Greenberg
Thu, Sep 04, 2014


Located on Cannery Row, the site of a number of now-defunct sardine canning factories and the setting of two John Steinbeck novels, the Monterey Plaza Hotel and Spa is part of an area steeped in local history and local activity. It’s located just a few blocks from the Monterey Bay Aquarium, snorkeling, sailing, and whale watching. Until the 1950s, there was an abundant sardine fishing and canning industry, but overfishing led to the decline of the fishing industry. More than a prime fishing location, Cannery Row was also a haven for artists and authors. The street name, formerly a nickname for Ocean View Avenue, became official in January 1958 to honor John Steinbeck and his well-known novel Cannery Row.  Concentrated efforts in the last 30 years to care for Monterey Bay have helped re-build the fish populations, which has increased populations of other aquatic life—otters, dolphins, sea lions, orcas, and humpback whales. Now, Monterey Bay is one of the best places for observing ocean life in the world. On this week's Travel Today with Peter Greenberg, we head to the Northern California town of Monterey to discover and hear about the rich history of the area first hand from the locals.
