Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - The Hour Glass Presents -

Watch en­thu­si­asts should visit ... Patek Phillipe Mu­seum and Musée In­ter­na­tional d’Hor­logerie in Geneva. Make a point to stop by the many lit­tle bou­tiques of in­de­pen­dent watch­mak­ers such as MB&F and F.P. Journe. Short re­treat ... I can’t seem to de­cide be­tween The Bris­tol and Ho­tel Pres­i­dent Wil­son. They’re both clas­sic and lux­u­ri­ous choices with top-notch ser­vice. Brunch by the beach ... La Bu­vette des Bains is where you’d want to be and to have a chill lunch on Lake Geneva. Geneva is ... a cruise, city, and moun­tain hol­i­day all in one. Be pre­pared to en­joy it all. Din­ing musts ... Ital­ian restau­rant Il Lago at Four Sea­sons Ho­tel Geneva for the truf­fle carpac­cio. Sig­na­ture ex­pe­ri­ences ... Take a boat trip on Lake Geneva be­cause a city with a lake needs to be vis­ited from both the wa­ter and the land. I take a walk by Cathé­drale Sain­tPierre ev­ery­day as it is close to my of­fice. Take a stroll back in time at Parc des Bas­tions and ad­mire the Re­for­ma­tion Wall.

A mix of Ro­manesque and Gothic ar­chi­tec­ture at Cathé­drale Saint-Pierre
