No one captures the essence of Paris quite like Ernest Hemmingway: “Wherever you go for the rest of your life it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast.” And a moveable feast it is! Synonymous with the finest things that culture can offer — in art, fashion, food, literature, and ideas, Paris has an unfailing familiarity for the first-timers and frequent visitors alike. The instantly recognizable landmarks: the Louvre, Orsay, Orangerie, and Cluny Museums, Notre-Dame Cathedral, Sainte-Chapelle, and Versailles Palace, immerse you in the very best of the City of Light.
With art, culture, cuisine, colourful markets, city’s intimate cafés, history, romance and joie de vivre, there’s always a thing to do in Paris.

A unique combination of incredible landscapes, and Wildlife – Australia is full of pristine delights and unforgettable experiences. No matter where you land in Australia, you are sure to be greeted with friendly locals, beautiful landscapes, and exotic wildlife.
From the city with the world’s cleanest air – Tasmania, some of the world’s most beautiful beaches, aquatic experiences to natural wonders such as the Great Barrier Reef and Uluru, there’s nothing like Australia. Blessed with some of the most stunning coastal scenery on Australia’s south coast – it is a great destination perfect for local road trips: along the famous Great Ocean Road in Victoria, the Grand Pacific Coastal Drive in New South Wales and in South Australia’s Wine Country or touring Kangaroo Island, to list just a few!
Insider Tip: Driving is one of the best ways to see Australia. From short trips to epic self-drive holidays and 4WD adventures, Australian road trips cover every length and landscape.
Home to a vibrant African culture, the more places you will go, the more you will realize how hard it is to top South Africa. Although Safari is the main attraction of South Africa, it truly is a country of astounding diversity.
From wildlife offering like the big five (lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant and rhino), to epic wilderness at Kruger & Kgalagadi, to rock-climbing in the craggy Cederberg, to stunning landscapes like semidesert Karoo and Kalahari, to the vineyards carpeting the Winelands, to surfing off the Eastern Cape coast, South Africa offers a staggering variety to enjoy.
Insider Tip: Skip the flight. Drive through the scenic route instead. Most tourists who fly from Johannesburg to Kruger National Park miss the rewards of a self-drive through Mpumalanga, South Africa’s smallest province. It’s a journey packed with natural wonders, wildlife, waterfalls, and historical sites.
One of the best-hiking destinations in the world, New Zealand has abundant man-made and natural splendor. Jagged mountains, rolling pasture land, steep fiords, pristine trout-filled lakes, raging rivers, scenic beaches, and active volcanic zones; New Zealand is middle earth come to life. Offering myriad adventure twists to nature: it’s the original home of jet-boating through shallow gorges, and bungy jumping off anything high enough to give a thrill.
Boasting of modern cities filled with new world culinary retreats, the country has a thriving Māori culture. New Zealand looks small on the world map but it is full of diversity – you could spend months exploring. Queenstown, Abel Tasman National Park, Milford Sound, Geothermal Rotorua, Bay of Islands, Urban Auckland are some of the top experiences not be missed in New Zealand.
Insider Tip: Rent a self-drive car to explore 10 themed highways of New Zealand which have been road tested, taste tested and given the stamp of approval by travelers and authorities alike.
Nothing short of a paradise on Earth, Hawaii is more than just the birthplace of modern surfing and hula, it’s a land of relaxation, adventure, natural beauty, and of welcoming locals. From adventure tours to family fun; from soaking in the cultural sights to a hike on a volcano; you can do it all or you can simply lie on the beach all day.
With sun-drenched, sugary beaches, Technicolor coral reef, mid-Pacific islands – the Hawaii of South Seas literature and Hollywood films really does exist. Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park, Na Pali Coast Wilderness State Park, Road to Hana, Waikiki Beach, Haleakalā National Park, Pearl Harbor – should be on everyone’s to-do list for genuine fun and aloha!
Insider Tip: Take a self-drive up to a beautiful waterfall, Kauai is home to a number of impressive waterfalls, two of which are accessible by car alone.
