Let the team’s most memorable holiday spots inspire some wanderlust before your next vacation.
Iguazu Falls, Brazil
The grandeur of the world’s largest waterfall system – 275 falls spanning a total width of 2.7km – is something you have to experience in person to truly comprehend. There’s nothing quite like standing before the roaring, rushing waters to make you feel really, really inconsequential in the face of nature’s might.
The archipelago off the coast of Italy may be small (it’s half the size of Singapore ), but it has incredible archaeological features – temples and underground chambers – as well as picturesque bayside towns and the freshest seafood. And it’s surrounded by sparkling azure waters. You can go from having a history lesson wandering around the historic sites, to enjoying a sunset cocktail at a cliffside restaurant, all in a day.
Cinque Terre, Italy
Made up of five seaside villages with pastel-painted houses, Cinque Terre is easily one of our favourite places to visit in north-western Italy, simply because of its beauty. Taking afternoon dips in the Ligurian Sea, exploring walking trails for Instagram-worthy views and indulging in gelato is our kind of heaven.
Crystal-clear waters, powdery white sand, water sports (snorkelling, sailing and even deep-sea fishing), fresh seafood and friendly locals – what’s there not to like about the Maldives? We’re already planning a trip back for all that, and to stay at lifestyle resort Kandima Maldives, which has 10 restaurants and bars and the longest pool (100m) on these islands.
Spain’s capital is often overlooked in favour of its more flamboyant Catalan counterpart, Barcelona, but it has amazing architecture (the historic buildings of its neighbourhoods are stunning), gorgeous parks (the 1.4 sq km El Retiro is worth spending a day at) and beautiful people. Plus, we think the tapas in Madrid tastes way better.
