HISTORY & ISLANDS: VIETNAM
Vietnam is famous for its awe-inspiring natural beauty, as well as its rich and historic culture. While many people visit Bali, the Maldives or Thailand for their taste of tropical Southeast Asia, we suggest you consider this often-overlooked paradise.
ICE & FIRE: ICELAND
While some people prefer to lounge on beaches, others prefer to appreciate the breathtaking, but harsh landscapes of the volcanic island of Iceland. Defined by its awe-inspiring geography – featuring volcanoes, geysers, hot springs and active lava fields; Iceland is a place that many who have travelled there say that everyone should visit at least once in their lives.
BEACHES & SUN: MAURITIUS
Defined by both its glowing white sands and its rich plant and animal life (both below and above water); A true heaven on Earth, Mauritius is a place that we would recommend that no-one passes up if they get the opportunity to visit.
MOUNTAINS & SNOW: SWITZERLAND
For a Summer holiday, relaxing on a beach is a perfect way to take time out; for a long weekend, you can go on a city break; but what about if you want something more active? Defined by jagged, snow-covered mountains and stunning valley lakes, Switzerland has landscapes to die for.
PARKS & SKYSCRAPERS: NEW YORK
With soaring skyscrapers, bagel shops every block and walks in Central Park, you can easily fill a long-weekend getaway with things to do and see, and still have days worth of attractions that you missed.
