Ho Chi Minh City
Familiarly referred to as Saigon, the city has an infectious energy all its own. Where French colonial architecture mixes with modern and Asian influences, and many fine old houses have become trendy restaurants serving up fine Vietnamese cuisine.
The Venice of the East. With tantalizing, multilayered tastes of sweet, salt, bitter, and spicy, Thai food is a not-to-be-missed delight. Explore traditional culture in eye-catching Buddhist temples that seem to be around every corner and life along the canals.
A visit to Shwedagon Pagoda will introduce you not only to one of Asia’s great religious sites, but to the daily life of the Burmese people, who come often to make their devotions, and also to spend time with friends, or sit in quiet contemplation.
In the middle of the desert where almost nothing existed 20 years ago, you’ll find this metropolis where everything is the biggest, tallest, and the first of its kind, including manmade islands shaped like palm trees and the world’s first underwater hotel.
This elegant city has a longstanding relationship with the sea. Explore the Sulan Qaboos Grand Mosque, the third largest in the world. Admire its massive Swarovski crystal chandelier with over 600,000 crystals and hand-woven prayer rug with more than 1.7 billion knots.
This dynamic city is all about architecture, from the magnificent medieval buildings of the Gothic Quarter to the Modernist movement typified by the work of Antoni Gaudi. His masterpiece, the amazing colossal Church of the Sagrada Familia, remains unfinished, though construction began in 1882.
One of the oldest cities in the world, it is rich in architecture, criss-crossed by monument-studded grand boulevards. Check out the Castle of Sao Jorge, a Moorish citadel and castle built upon fortifications from the 2nd century BC.
A city full of personality and more canals than Venice. While strolling the streets, taste poffertjes, buckwheat donuts with powdered sugar, or stroopwafel, a chewy cookie-like sweet. Bitterballen, deep-fried balls of beef with mustard, are unavoidable.
With a sunny attitude and a climate to match, Sydney is a vibrant city that boasts a rich cultural and artistic vibe. From the iconic Sydney Opera House to the endless white sand stretches of Manly Beach, the streets are packed with spectacular architecture and heritage buildings.
Big Ben, the Tower Bridge, the London Eye. Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, St. Paul’s Cathedral. World-famous sights. Legendary night-life. And an arts, culture and theatre scene that makes other cities blush. London’s a city oozing with history, charm, and plenty to see and do.
Auckland boasts a warm, costal climate, where you can surf at black-sand beaches, enjoy picnics in secluded coves, or go horseback riding nearly year round. Take a trip to the top the Sky Tower, tour a sheep farm, take a guided tour of the coastal rainforest, or immerse yourself in Māori culture.
Lively, cosmopolitan Stockholm sports an appealing mix of modern Scandinavian architecture and fairy tale palaces. Explore the medieval layout and narrow meandering paths of Gamla or contemporary Sodermalm, known trendily as SoFo.
