Our Luxury Calendar provides a comprehensive overview of the top events unfolding around the world every month. Some are micro-luxuries (like a really good book) and others are on a grand, epic scale.

If schedules and money were no object, and we could choose the top ten experiences in the luxury sphere that we’d personally love to partake of, here’s what they’d be for October 2018. How about you?

We always ask our work colleagues and friends for recommendations, on the off chance that we have a precious hour or two to sneak out and experience at least a taste of what their city has to offer. Now we’re sharing those ideas with you – so that even if you have only 120 minutes or less, you can still have a meaningful immersion in the life of a great city.
