January 13 Weekly Roundup: The Worlds Best Beach Houses; Mexicos Secret Island; Insider Morocco Tips

I come across many interesting travel stories during the week, only some of which I have time to blog about. So you don’t miss anything, here’s a roundup of the most interesting travel stories you may have missed.

Stories You May Have Missed: Week of January 13 Edition

The Guardian released their list of the top 100 beach houses to shack up in while you’re traveling. Not surprisingly, the European portion of their roundup is loaded with Mediterranean properties, although a couple along the North Sea snuck into the list. [Top 100 holiday beach houses: Europe]

• Ever wanted to travel somewhere where it’s common to find people taking a yak out for an afternoon stroll on the street? China’s Yunnan Province may then be your place. Check out National Geographic’s recent trip there, including obligatory yak walking picture. [Journey to Shangri-La: The Magic of China's Secret Kingdom]

• Curious as to where your money goes a long way in the world? The Telegraph took a recent look at how the pound is doing in comparison to last year (and chances are, if the pound goes a long way, so will your dollars, euros, bitcoins, etc. . . ). [Holiday pound stretches furthest in Bali and the Algarve]

• The Yucatan, an uncrowded beach, carless roads, no Señor Frog’s . . . yes, this does exist, and it’s named Isla Holbox. To find out where it is, and what to expect, check out the FT’s dispatch from paradise. [Isla Holbox, Mexico’s enchanted island]

• Finally, if you’re planning on going to Morocco (you know you are), then read up on tips from those that have been recently on what to do, where to eat and what to see. [Morocco: readers' tips, recommendations and travel advice]
