Everyone has a different relationship with time.

Some chase it, while others stay ahead.

One may walk beside it, while another lets it slip away.

Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons believes that time is personal,

and we invite you to explore your own relationship with it.

Tokyo, Japan is a land of fascinating culture, respect for natural surroundings, and some of the finest luxury known. And this is what your day could be if you have the opportunity to visit.
10:00 AM
The air is cool and the land is serene. This is the perfect time to take a jog around the Imperial Palace Gardens. You will get to experience the beauty of nature from every angle. There is endless greenery wherever you look. Even the bare trees are magnificent to look at. You can take in the surroundings and use this time for personal reflection.

12:00 PM
After a refreshing morning run, it would only make sense that your appetite is worked up as well. Within central Tokyo lies the Tsukiji Market, a large wholesaler of fresh fish, fruits, and vegetables. It’s known as one of the world’s largest fish markets, and boasts morning tuna auctions. If you don’t want to do the early 5 am wake up call to get there for the fresh catch, grab an early lunch at Bentomi and experience tuna that practically melts in your mouth!
2:00 PM
After your adventure in the fish market, you may find yourself feeling like a bit of a thrill-seeker. To sate such a thirst for excitement, take a Walk on Air at the Tokyo Sky Tree. At the spiral ramp of the Tembo Deck (sitting 450 meters above ground), you can take a dazzling look across the land. Bring your camera; it’s enough to take your breath away!
4:00 to 7:00 PM
It’s time to leave those dizzying heights behind and get back on solid ground for a bit of luxury shopping. It would serve you well to make the short trip to the Ginza District, where you’ll witness what Tokyo’s luxury watch scene is all about.

Hidden within a church nestled in Ginza, you’ll find the watch retailer “Lemon.” A watch-lover’s paradise, this hidden gem boasts a wide collection of luxury vintage watches.

Next, make your way toward Omotesando Avenue, renowned as the Champs-Élysées of Tokyo.

An area that lined by zelkova trees and boasting some of the most amazing architecture you’ll ever see, it is a modern shopping area that fulfills your every wish. The area is a work of art itself. It is imperative that you make purchases at Commes Des Garcons and Issey Miyake.

As previously mentioned, Japan boasts art styles of all kind, and manga is no exception. For fans of this unique style of drawing, head on down to Mandarake. Check out the volumes upon volumes of manga and shop to your heart’s content.

As you continue your stroll later on, try an iced cappuccino at Omotesando Koffee, a trendy, upscale coffee shop along the street, and take a break from the day.

9:00 PM
What better way to end your day than with a wonderful dinner? Go to the Imperial Hotel and grab a table at the Nadaman restaurant. Order the tempura; you won’t regret it. After this meal, your perspective on the “authentic Japanese cuisine” you’ve been eating outside of Japan will certainly change. There’s nothing that can match the real thing.

Finally, top off your night with a drink at the Old Imperial Bar. It is the perfect ending to such an active and exciting day.

An experience in Tokyo, Japan is one that cannot ever be matched. The combination of culture, excitement, tradition, and modernity all blended seamlessly and offer an experience unlike any other.

Istanbul is as lively and deliciously contemporary as it gets. Set against a backdrop of thousands of years of history, hop over to visit astonishing monuments, discover a booming art scene, taste delicious kebabs, and mingle with a highly fashionable society.
9:30 AM
If you are looking for an authentic dip into the Turkish street life, take a walk around Taksim and Istiklal Street all the way to Galata Towers. You will get a feel for the hustle and bustle of the streets. On Istiklal, stop by House Café for some Turkish tea. It will be served on a pretty little tray with some apples to tide you over till lunchtime.
If, however, you prefer to simply have a good bite and watch people passing against the backdrop of blue waters, go to Mangerie in Bebek and revel in a beautifully lazy morning.

11:30 AM
Follow up your relaxed morning on the streets with a healthy dose of culture and enlightenment; make a stop at one of the most beautiful mosques you will find, the Blue Mosque.
1:30 PM
There is no shortage of delicious meals in Istanbul. Skip the fusion, go local and experience Turkish food at its homiest. Go through the alleys and side roads and discover Karakoy Lokantasi for delectable food and a lovely ambiance. For those of you with carnivorous tendencies, Nusret is your place. It is the equivalent of eating right from the hands of a butcher. And don’t be fooled by the spaghetti; it’s truly a meat-filled meal in an Italian disguise.
3:30 PM
It can be a form of art at Beymen in Nisantasi, a little shrine for all the brands you know and love, and something to take home besides loukoum (Turkish delights). For a quick run through antique stores, head to Cihangir and Cukurcuma to practice your bargaining skills and train your eye to see the old and beautiful.

9:00 PM Onwards
If you want the familiar, go to Zuma for a cocktail and some small bites. Walk around the area a bit to discover some local hangouts, and when you’re ready for the party, put on your dancing shoes and fancy pants and head to Angelique or Reina to experience the Turkish nightlife, the other form of Turkish Delight.

Berlin is a city steeped in history and brimming with understated, subversive cultural coolness. A burgeoning creative hub, it is a haven for emerging artists and collectors, offering a wide array of museums and galleries, a distinct foodie scene, and pulsating, non-mainstream nightlife.

Here’s how to spend 24 hours in a city that offers equal parts intellectual rigor and counterculture coolness.
8:00 AM
Kickstart your day with a brisk jog in Tiergarten park – Berlin’s urban city park – the green lung of the metropolis. Reward yourself with hot chocolate and a slice of cake at Café am Neuen See overlooking the lake (a real treat, especially if it’s sunny outside). Practice German efficiency and hit two birds with one stone; pack in some historical sightseeing at the Brandenburg Gate, a quick stroll from the park.

10:00 AM to 12:00 PM
Head out to the Bauhaus Archive/Museum of Design and spend some time immersed in the works of some of the most forward thinking artists, architects, and designers that defined the Bauhaus movement; they include artists such as Walter Gropius, Moholy-Nagy, Kandinsky, and Mies van der Rohe. Leave feeling more enriched and educated, and with a penchant for a Modernist makeover.
1:00 to 2:30 PM
Berlin is an unexpected foodie haven with no shortage of options of delicious Asian haunts, chic French brasseries and traditional German Old World Cuisine to choose from. However, for an art-inflected experience, try the East Side’s La Soup Populaire, an industrial-chic restaurant serving classic Germen fare with a twist. Situated in Botzow, it is a brewery converted into a cavernous gallery space, making it an art-cum-culinary experience that best embodies modern day Berlin.
3:00 to 5:00 PM
Stick to the art theme and head down to the Mitte district that is chock-full of galleries. Notable mentions include the KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Carlier Gebauer and the East Side Gallery (essentially the remnant of the Berlin Wall). Not to be missed is The Sammlung Boros Collection, an old bomb shelter shrouded with a veneer of secrecy. You can only view it on weekends and by appointment, making it all that more exclusive and desirable. If you have the time, be sure to book ahead to view the vast modern art collection on display, including the works of art darlings Tracey Emin and Wolfgang Tillmans.

6:00 to 7:00 PM
Mix relaxation with a spot of unconventional shopping at the concept store at Soho House, simply named “The Store.” A unique space that functions as a boutique/restaurant/bar/record store, you can have your cake and eat it too, all while browsing the rails of cutting edge designers such as Ann Demeulemeester, Jil Sander, and J.W. Anderson to name a few.
9:00 PM
Stylish ambiance with food served straight up delicious: Pauly Saal. Located in a former girls' school, this Michelin rated restaurant touts the best steak in Berlin. Food is classic, no-nonsense and impeccably prepared. You will not be disappointed.
11:00 PM
Top off your night at the uber-cool Bar Tausend. It’s hidden under a the bridge of the Friedrishstrasse U-Bahn and S-Bahn station, with only an old iron door and a little window to hint at the underground establishment that lies beneath. It’s urban, it’s edgy, it’s underground. It’s Berlin at its best.
1:00 AM Onwards
If you’ve still got it in you, try out the fantastic clubbing scene that Berlin has to offer. It’s dark and gritty with some of the most exciting techno music you are likely to hear. Watergate in Kreuzberg boasts a terrace overlooking the river and features some of best talent of the city.

End the night with the obligatory currywurst found all around town and call it a night.
