Burma (Myanmar) Map
Why I Love Burma (Myanmar)
Getting off the tourist trail and getting lost in the back streets of Yangon is a great way to familiarise yourself with the city, and something that I love to do on my Burma holidays. With a few hours to spare, an aimless walk through the city will open your eyes to the rich Burmese culture just as much as the amazing Shwedagon Pagoda can.

North Korea Map
Why I Love North Korea
Holidays to North Korea are like visiting a different universe. I’ve visited several times over the years but it never fails to surprise me in different ways, from the exceedingly friendly people to the beautiful sights, North Korea has to be seen to be believed.

Iceland Map
Why I Love Iceland
Leaving London on a Friday lunch time, I love the fact that I can be relaxing in the Blue Lagoon by late afternoon, with a long weekend in Reykjavík in front of me. At the remote Hotel Rangá, it’s easy to feel a world away from home when you’re standing in front of Mt Hekla watching the mesmerising northern lights dance overhead.

Faroe Islands Map
Why I Love Faroe Islands
This remarkable archipelago boasts the highest sea cliffs in the world and for me venturing out in to the North Atlantic Ocean to discover a coastline teeming with birdlife and a significant breeding area for the Atlantic puffin was unforgettable. Faroe Islands holidays offer a unique experience.

Borneo Map
Why I Love Borneo
Borneo is such a friendly country with fantastic opportunities for wildlife encounters. One of my favourite memories is snorkelling on remote Lankayan Island and happening upon a lone green turtle grazing on the seabed. I managed to 'snorkel-stalk' him for quite some time and he was wholly unperturbed - I felt truly privileged to have experienced this.

Cambodia Map
Why I Love Cambodia
The incredible Khmer temple complex at Angkor is undoubtedly the highlight of any of our Cambodia holidays. The sheer scale of the site combined with the iconic silhouette of the lotus bud-shaped towers and the wonderful bas-relief decoration which has survived since the 12th century make this a very special place to visit.

Taiwan Map
Why I Love Taiwan
Taiwan is full of surprises, but those who picture it as a sprawling industrial metropolis are in for the biggest surprise. Taiwan’s National Parks boast some of the most stunningly beautiful lakes, waterfalls and forests in Asia, with sweet-smelling cherry blossoms filling the clear mountain air in the spring time.

Trans-Siberian Railway Map
A Trans-Siberian Railway holiday is simply the best travel experience I have ever had. I loved every minute, from practicing my Russian with the locals we met on board to the vodka and food we sampled along the way. I would travel on this epic journey again in a heartbeat!

Russia Map
Why I Love Russia
Visiting both Moscow and St Petersburg is a great start to understanding this complex and intriguing country once described by Churchill as "a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma” - so one visit is never enough. Explore Siberian cities on mighty rivers, learn about the battles of Stalingrad in Volgograd and travel the Trans-Siberian to Vladivostok.

China Map
Why I Love China
The sheer variety of cultures and landscapes in China never fails to enthrall. I love uncovering the history of the ancient dynasties and, such is the vastness and depth of the country, there is always something unexpected to discover. Our China Holidays allow to you enjoy the best of this country in a variety of ways.

Ukraine Map
Why I Love Ukraine
Having spent over three years living in Kiev, Ukraine is my second home. It has everything for a memorable holiday – vibrant cities, incredible architecture, fabulous beaches, wonderful mountain scenery and great vodka!

Croatia Map
Why I Love Croatia
Few holidays are quite as romantic as Croatia holidays. What could be better than sitting on a quaint restaurant terrace in medieval surroundings, with some delicious fresh seafood and a bottle of lovely wine, while watching a golden sunset over sparkling Adriatic waters?
Staff
Greenland Map
Why I Love Greenland
From Ilulissat, travel by boat to the edge of the spectacular Eqi glacier and if you are fortunate you may see and hear the immense crashing sound as icebergs are calved from the glacier. It is a surreal sight to sit basking in the Arctic sun, sipping an ice-cold Greenlandic beer watching icebergs glide past houses, along the fjords and out to sea.

Estonia Map
Why I Love Estonia
The majority of Estonian beer-drinkers can't be wrong so make sure you try a cold glass of Saku beer, the market leader in Estonia, on a tour of the brewery. Estonia's oldest brewery, dating from the 19th century, traces the history of beer production, once brewed at home, in abbeys and castles from 500 AD, through to modern methods. Purely for research purposes you should sample one or two of their products!
