Follow in the footsteps of the world’s greatest explorers as you wind your way through Lisbon’s cobblestone streets. Take in the tree-lined squares, ancient castles and colourful cityscape of Portugal’s capital city.
Brindisi is a port city on the Adriatic Sea, in southern Italy’s Apulia region. The red-stone Aragonese Castle stands on a small island at the harbor’s entrance. The tall Monumento al Marinaio d’Italia, a rudder-shaped limestone memorial to sailors, has sea and city views. Across the harbor, the Swabian Castle of Brindisi dates from the 13th century.
At the entrance to the Suez Canal, Port Said gives access to Cairo, capital of this legend-filled antique land whose history goes back 6,000 years, and which even today is a restless crossroads of creeds and cultures. The clamour of the city's teeming streets and bazaars contrasts with the reflective mood of the Egyptian Museum and its countless treasures, among them the gold death mask of the boy king Tutankhamun. On Cairo's western edge are Giza's towering pyramids, the tombs of the pharaohs - constructed nearly 5,000 years ago and among the most awesome man-made structures on earth - and the sphinx, whose enigma remains unsolved to this day.
On Egypt's Red Sea coast, Safaga allows you to witness the awesome legacy of the pharaohs at Luxor and the inimitable Valley of the Kings on the banks of the Nile. Safaga is also renowned for its wide azure bay, long sandy beaches and pretty islands.
As one of the wealthiest and most populous regions in Asia, Mumbai (known as Bombay until 1995) has been an inspiring tourist hotspot for years – and with its jaw-dropping architecture, culture and food, it’s easy to see why.
A popular beach-side base, this part of southern India offers more than yoga retreats and tie-dye market stalls.
Known as the Queen of the Arabian Sea, serene Kochi on India’s south-western coast has been drawing traders, explorers and travellers to its shores for over 600 years. Formerly the port of Cochin, Kochi grew to prominence as an outlet for the spice trade in the 14th century, and is most famous for the iconic-cantilevered Chinese fishing nets that billow out across its harbour.[ReadMoreMob] This ancient trading centre is a melting pot of cultures and religions, evident in the town’s buildings, which range from the oldest synagogue in the British Commonwealth to the austere Mattancherry Palace, built by the Dutch but influenced by the Portuguese.
Diamond-shaped Pulau Ujong is Singapore's main island and it's bursting with colour, energy and culture.
Nha Trang also has a reputation for outstanding scuba diving with its white sandy beaches, hot springs, a vast array of species of fish and a colourful coral reef. Culture lovers should be sure to visit the Po Nagar Tower, a well preserved Cham temple tower dedicated to Yan Po Nagar, the goddess of the country. Also of note is the Yersin Museum, a museum dedicated to French bacteriologist Alexandre Yersin. Nha Trang is also home to the renowned Studio & Art Gallery, Long Thanh, a professional Vietnamese black and white photographer who maintains the use of films and developing photographs by hand.
From the exceptional views across its famous harbour to the sizzling dishes in its glamorous restaurants, you’re sure to fall in love with Hong Kong.
China’s second most populous city embraces its history, future – and visitors – in an equally delightful fashion. Architectural treats from centuries past remain, with influences from all corners of the globe.
The dense downtown ward of Hakata sprawls from the harbor toward bamboo-forested hills. It's known for modern malls and traditional craft stores on Kawabata Shopping Arcade. Busy noodle shops serve Hakata-style pork ramen, and after-work crowds fill casual bars near Hakata Station. Hakataza Theatre stages kabuki, while 12th-century Shofukuji Temple is Japan’s oldest Zen Buddhist site, with a landscaped garden.
Osaka is a large port city and commercial center on the Japanese island of Honshu. It's known for its modern architecture, nightlife and hearty street food. The 16th-century shogunate Osaka Castle, which has undergone several restorations, is its main historical landmark. It's surrounded by a moat and park with plum, peach and cherry-blossom trees. Sumiyoshi-taisha is among Japan’s oldest Shinto shrines.
Originally developed as the Castle Town of the Owari during the Edo Period, Nagoya played a major role in Japanese governance under the rule of great leaders such as Toyotomi Hideyoshi, Oda Nobunaga and Tokugawa Ieyasu – three legendary samurai – and the emperor Meiji, until World War II bombing raids destroyed much of the city in 1945. Since rebuilt, Nagoya today is once again one of Japan’s most important cities and its third largest. An industrial and manufacturing powerhouse, it is home to global companies such as Toyota and NGK, and boasts wide, urban streets overlooked by towering office blocks and skyscrapers, such as the impressive Twin Towers of Nagoya Station – the largest railway station, by building area, on earth. There are cosmopolitan aspects to Nagoya; you’ll find fantastic shops, malls and restaurants serving delicious local cuisine; interesting museums, including the Toyota Automobile Museum and futuristic City Science Museum; and beautiful parks and green spaces too. Amongst the modern marvels, it is still possible to enjoy a taste of the city’s historical importance and samurai heritage though. Don’t miss the stunning Nagoya Castle, Atsuta Shrine – one of Japan's three most important Shinto shrines – and Osu Kannon Temple.
Follow in the footsteps of The Beach Boys and fall in love with incredible Hawaii.
Quintessentially Hawaiian, gorgeous Lahaina blends a mix of history, beauty and modern-day delights, creating a wonderfully charming, and rewarding, destination for any visitor to breathtaking Maui Island. Situated on Maui’s picturesque west coast, the town was once Hawaii’s capital and an important part of the whaling boom in the 1800s. Now, while the days of whale trading are long gone, Lahaina remains a symbol of the past and features on the U.S Register of Historic Places. With every turn, especially within ‘Old Lahina’, you really get a feel for the history here, as around 55 acres of the town are designated historic districts. It’s all easily explored on foot, with highlights aplenty to discover; take a stroll along lively Front Streets, one of America’s ‘Top Ten Greatest Streets’, and see sights such as the U.S. Seamen’s Hospital, Hale Paahao (Lahaina Prison), the Pioneer Inn on the historic trail. Aside from its attractions from centuries past, Lahaina also offers a taste of authentic island culture and beauty – as you might expect from somewhere found in one of the world’s most spectacular archipelagos. You can immerse yourself in Maui’s way of life, tasting locally grown and sourced produce at Lahaina’ fine restaurants; catch performance of traditional dance and music at a seaside luau; head out for a volcanic hiking adventure; or simply indulge in pure relaxation at the dream-like beaches.
A mixture of enthralling cultural attractions and magnificent natural phenomena, Hilo offers some of the best sights in Hawaii.
From the impressive Golden Gate Bridge to the famous Alcatraz Island, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to things to see and do in the city by the Bay.
Acapulco is a pulsating city which lies like a star-studded jewel in the sweeping bay. Why not amble along 'The Strip' with its colourful boutiques, sipping mouth-numbing tequilas and take in the sights of this Pacific playground?
The Pacific port and tiny town of Puerto Caldera is well-situated for many of Costa Rica's top attractions and most popular cities, including San Jose, Jaco and Puntarenas. This tropical city is located off of the Gulf of Nicoya and its unspoilt, natural beauty is a true spectacle. The vast rainforest around Puerto Caldera spreads from the coastline up into breath-taking mountain ranges where rivers, waterfalls, parks and wildlife preserves are all waiting to be discovered.
Undeniably, Panama’s biggest attraction is the Panama Canal, a modern day wonder of the world. Constructed between 1903 and 1914, the canal’s three locks allow 14,000 boats a year to cross a 48 mile body of water from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic.
On Colombia’s Caribbean-facing coast, Cartagena is a handsome and historic city, with distinctive Colonial architecture dating back to the sixteenth century.
Santa Marta is a city on the Caribbean Sea in the northern Colombian department of Magdalena. A busy port, it was also the first Spanish settlement in Colombia. It's the gateway for trips into the Tayrona National Natural Park, and for multiday guided treks to the Lost City (Teyuna) archaeological site in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta mountains.
Road Town meaning ‘Turtle Dove’ is the capital of Tortola and is the largest of this stunning archipelago of over 50 beach-fringed islands and cays, with names evoking a buccaneering past where these waters were once a favourite haunt of pirates.
Adjust to the easygoing pace of St Kitts' dignified little capital, then check out its imposing cathedral before lingering over the purchase of attractive batiks. Ascending past the lush sugar-cane fields to take in the sweeping views from the 17th century Brimstone Hill Fortress - the ‘Gibraltar of the West Indies' whose ramparts recall Anglo-French battles fought here long ago.
This volcanic land is surrounded by rugged coastline and turquoise waters, providing you with a vast range of exciting ways to spend your visit.
