Bangkok is a bucket list destination that will stimulate your senses as soon as you touch down in Thailand. Whether you are a night owl, culture vulture or a magpie with an eye for a bargain, you can find your pleasure in this thrilling city. Enjoy a ride on the Chao Phraya Express Boat for a quirky alternative to getting around Bangkok, or you take a private river taxi. Bangkok has hundreds of temples but the must-sees are definitely The Grand Palace (housing the most sacred temple in Thailand), Wat Arun (one of the country’s most beautiful temples) and Wat Pho (home of the largest Buddha image in the world).
Australia, the land of beautiful landscapes and beautiful people, is another must-do destination. You’re spoilt for choice for places to visit in this huge country, but how about Melbourne - a city full of multiculturalism and character? There is so much to see and do in this beautiful city, like Melbourne Zoo and Parliament House, high end shopping on Chapel Street, or a trip up Eureka Tower, the tallest building in the Southern Hemisphere.
‘Jozi’ is the economic and cultural heart of South Africa. Anyone who visits Johannesburg will come back with rave reviews.

Refresh yourself with a visit to the Goldmine, the world’s deepest pub, which is a quarter of a kilometre underground!
Muscat, situated on the north-east coast of Oman, is a vibrant multi-ethnic society which makes the culture of this beautiful city (made up of three towns which have joined together) diverse and vivacious.

There are also many active things to do in and around Muscat: night safaris, scuba diving, rock climbing, camel racing... You name it!
Mahe is the largest island in the Seychelles but at only 28km long, it will be difficult to get lost. Being an island, there are a lot of diving and boating opportunities if you do get bored of lounging in the average heat of 26 degrees Celsius. There are also several golf courses if you’d like to take a break from those tropical waters. Despite being a small island, the amount of restaurants will leave you spoilt for choice, while open air discos and casino will entertain you if you want to party till that gorgeously hot sun comes up again.
