pketron There's something special about ending the day with a swim in the Long Pool, which sits atop the Long Bar. To see more of the set of images I shot for Travel and Leisure of the Intercontinental Danang, follow the link in my profile. Best viewed full screen on black on a computer. #icdanang 1d

pketron Staying in the Residence Villas means having access to your own private pool. Don't mind if I do. #icdanang #residencevilla 2d

pketron The master bedroom in the Residence Villa was far beyond anything I ever expected. I loved it so much it was hard for me to leave and explore the rest of the Villa to see the kitchen, dining room, lounge, and other bedrooms. #icdanang #residencevilla 2d

pketron The view of the sun setting behind the resort falls nothing short of spectacular when viewed from the new Residence Villas tucked away at the southern tip of the property. #icdanang #residencevilla 3d

pketron I consider myself very fortunate to have been hired by Travel and Leisure to photograph the Intercontinental Danang Peninsula Resort. This place is unlike anything I ever dreamed of. The landscape is unreal. Everything your eye can see from the Nam Tram is part of the resort, including the private beach at the very bottom of the mountainside. #icdanang #namtram 3d

pketron Soumaya. At the top of my list of things to photograph in Mexico City. I finally made it on my last morning and then had to quickly run to the airport to catch my flight. The building is a sight to behold, but I didn't get to see much of the inside. Thanks for coming out, @lubel80, @diegosotomo, @aaronarias, and @seojups (it still counts!). 4d

pketron Thank you, stranger, for walking perfectly down the center so I could get this photo.

Thanks more to an awesome group of Instagrammers who (individually or together) helped to make my extra time in DF that much better. It was a pleasure (hope I didn't miss anyone). @lanzgg

pketron This bed runner in one of the penthouses at Las Alcobas is very likely the most stunning piece of fabric I've ever laid eyes on. It was converted from an authentic hand-embroidered huipil (traditional dress) from the Tehuantapec region of Oaxaca. The colors are absolute perfection. // @theluxurycollection #globalexplorer 4d

pketron Waterfront property: homes in Mexico City's version of Venice, Xochimilco, where the front doors of some homes open directly to the water and passing trajineras. // @theluxurycollection #globalexplorer 5d

pketron The stained glass ceiling of the Gran Hotel here is mind-blowing. Imagine waking up to see this every morning. // @theluxurycollection #globalexplorer 5d
  •   teareef @marcaa are we going? 😀 5d
  •   kiktramp This place was the first department store in Mexico City. It's easy to imagine the porfirian ladies in search of hats, jewelry and perfumes. The stained glass ceiling is the fourth largest –tiffany style– of the world. Good to have you here, Pei. Nice to meet you! 5d

pketron Hey, Mexico City! If you're around and free, I'd love to meet you today. Come to Biblioteca Vasconcelos at 4pm. Meet below the whale.  6d

pketron It's hard to fathom the centuries of history you're facing when you're standing atop the Pyramid of the Moon overlooking what remains of this ancient civilization. From here, you can see the Pyramid of the Sun looming large in the background behind the smaller secondary temples. Fun side note: when I was in 4th grade, I made one of these out of clay for a school project. It was incredible to finally climb these in person. // @theluxurycollection #globalexplorer 6d

pketron I had no idea that Mexico City was built on water and to this day, still has waterways that serve as roads. People flock to Xochimilco to ride trajineras, canoe-like boats punted through the water in a manner similar to the British. My ride today was fascinating. Boats with entire mariachi bands for hire floated by, hoping for a quick gig, and others floated by peddling food, drinks, clothing, plants, and other knick knacks. For the full 33-second video, follow the Vimeo link in my profile. || @theluxurycollection #globalexplorer 7d
  •   misterflopatrick Ha, great one 5d
  •   jimmytorreslee Uno de los grandes 5 lagos que existieron en la época prehispánica. Inicialmente era una sola extensión de agua abarcando todo el Distrito Federal, con el tiempo se fracciono... Excelente trabajo @pketron Saludos de la Ciudad de México... 5d
  •   ryanlerone So cool! I had no idea either! 5d
  •   exanm8r The colors are so beautiful! And I love the sped up movement of the boats. How lovely this is. 5d
