Travel Agenda: Christmas Eco Fair; Harlem for the Holidays; Barunga Music Festival
Saturday 05 December 2009
The Royal Geographical Society in London is hosting a Christmas Eco Fair, which runs until tomorrow. Buy items from around the globe, from Cambodian silk to Indian throws (theecofair.co.uk).
A Christmas bazaar kicks off the Harlem for the Holidays event on Sunday in New York. Held at the Hip Hop Culture Centre, the event comprises retail stalls, as well as peripheral music and dance performances including The Black Nutcracker and A Taste of Harlem Food and Cultural Tours (nycgo.com/harlemfortheholidays). Over in Chicago, The Elysian Hotel, pictured, is opening on Wednesday. The 188-room hotel is aiming to bring back the glamour to travel with elegant, luxurious design and personal service (elysianhotels.com).
