New York City


About Me

Well, hello there. My name is Soraya and I am a life-long explorer.

Middle-Eastern and European by blood, American by nationality and Asian by the sheer percentage of food I consume, I like to think of myself as a citizen of the world. I've traveled to over 70 countries and want to see 99 more before I die.  

As a kid, I used to dream of a) hosting a travel channel show or b) joining the ranks of National Geographic or c) magically morphing into Diane Sawyer.  

These days, I'm living out a real dream as the co-founder of Zady, a content and commerce platform dedicated to sourcing the finest quality products from around-the-globe. I am also a proud advisor of this fine website.  

So enough about me... let's swap notes!

QTokyo: Exploring Tokyo solo for 3 days: Where to stay and what to do?

QKaua'i: Attending a wedding in Kaua'i...

I will be attending a wedding in Kaua'i in late April.  What side of the island should we stay on?  My family will be traveling with me and my mother has a bad knee.  We need great suggestions for outdoor activities the whole family can enjoy, bearing that in mind.... ... See More

ALondon: London Eats

Neal's Yard Dairy​ has the world's best cheese!  Definitely check that out if you like cheese. See More

ALos Angeles: Restaurant recommendations in L.A.?

Gjelina​ has a lovely brunch.  I like having brunch there pre hike in the Runyon Canyon Park​. A very decent way to spend a leisurely day in LA. See More

ASydney: Mainstream attractions in Sydney -- not my choice ;)

Aussies know how to have fun better than almost anyone - and Bondi Beach​ is the physical representation of this.  I would start my day there, then spend the afternoon at the Sydney Opera House​. It's ideal. See More

AMiami: Fun things to do on a five day girls trip to Miami

When are you going? Miami Beach​ is awesome. Art Basel (a great international art show in December) is when I head to there and a day of relaxation in the sun post gallery hopping is how I like to experience the beach. For shopping, go to Barneys​.... See More

ALos Angeles: Best places for celebrity watching!

Chateau Marmont​ is a great place for ice tea and celebrity spotting! See More

ANew York City: Splurge-worthy conveniently-located hotel recommendation?

I swear Mandarin Oriental​ has the best spa and I concur with what Andrew said about it. The second best spa is at the Trump SoHo Hotel​, but the service at The Mandarin is bar none. See More

ANew York City: Restaurants that are worth being gluttonous at

Debbie, have you ever been to Ippudo NY​? The pork buns are amongst my favorite in the world! Seriously. Several people have mentioned Balthazar Restaurant which is the closest New York comes to a Parisian baguette or croissant.... See More

ASan Francisco: Must-try restaurants

I love Samovar Tea Lounge​ and Tartine Bakery & Cafe​.  The Jasmine Lemonade at Somovar is wonderful and it's impossible to go to Tartine without leaving with the cookbook in hand. Must visits. See More
