Top 75 World Concepts in February

From Flight Advisor Apps to Icy Nordic Hotels

— March 8, 2015 — World
Rather than putting a focus on jetting off to somewhere sunny and warm, some of the top February 2015 world ideas put emphasis on enjoying the experiences the cold weather can bring. Some of these examples include visits to the decorative 25th iteration of Sweden's annual Icehotel, sculpted from thousands of tons of ice, or taking part in the 'Heavy Snow Region Experience' tour in Japan that has travelers pay to shovel snow.

In terms of getting to a far-off destination with ease, there are several improvements that are being made to airports and airplanes. With its Planeview app Virgin Atlantic now lets you take an augmented reality tour of its first class cabins, while pets at the JFK International Airport will soon be able to kick back and relax in a dedicated space called 'The Ark.'
