Milolika Pavlyuchenko, general director of Khirurgiya Krasoty plastic surgery and cosmetology clinic:

Favorite destination

"Kenya -- a stunningly colorful safari. India -- a spiritual journey, connected with getting to know the sacred, discovering the incomprehensible. Tokyo -- for the level of modern technology it has attained. Hong Kong and Bali -- for their charming Asian harmony. But my favorite cities in the world are New York and Dubai."

Favorite hotel worldwide
Hotels in the Hyatt chain, especially the Grand Hyatt in New York. They stand out with their refined design, stylish minimalism. Of my most recent impressions, The Laguna Bali is an oasis of relaxation, peace and Eastern harmony."

Favorite restaurant worldwide
"In New York, the FireBird made an impression -- it has retained the atmosphere of the early 20th century, the epoch of Diaghilev. In the coastal restaurants of Algarve, Portugal, there are wonderful fresh sardines. In Bali, the coastal restaurants in the fishing village at the south of Jimbaran are very romantic, with candle-lit tables on the sand. Fresh seafood, national music, and a light sea breeze."

Favorite airport worldwide
"Kuala Lumpur -- the new generation of contemporary, progressive airports; New York's JFK -- for its scale."

Which airline has the best food?

What did you do on your last flight?
"I was reading 'Ants' by Bernard Werber."

What do you always take with you when you travel?
"A camera, video camera and icon of St. Nicholas."
