Dubai

Dubai is one of the few cities in the world that has undergone such a rapid transformation – from a humble beginning as a pearl-diving centre – to one of the fastest growing cities on earth. Dubai today is a tourism, trade and logistics hub and has earned itself the reputation of being the ‘gateway between the east and the west.’ It is also considered as the dynamic nucleus of the Arabian Gulf region. Dubai is without a doubt a destination of the 21st century. Read any article about the fastest growing city in the region and it’s almost guaranteed you’ll see the words ‘ambitious’, ‘record-breaking’ and ‘staggering’. This meteoric growth has not gone unnoticed, and each year thousands of expats arrive to claim a slice of the action.

JORDAN

24


To visit Jordan means to experience amazing sites and rich history. The Rose-red city of Petra, the magnificent desert of Wadi Rum, Jerash; the best preserved Roman city in the world, and the Dead Sea; the lowest point on the surface of the earth and its largest natural spa are just a few examples of what you can see during your visit. There are many activities to try in the wonderful country of Jordan, going for a scrub and massage at a Turkish bath, or enjoying the famous Arabic sweet of Kunafa in downtown Amman. There is always something to do here, and you will always feel the city’s vibe, day in and day out.

PETRA The giant red mountains and vast mausoleums of a departed race have nothing in common with modern civilization, and ask nothing of it except to be appreciated at their true value - as one of the greatest wonders ever wrought by Nature and Man. Although much has been written about Petra, nothing really prepares you for this amazing place. It has to be seen to be believed. Petra, the world wonder, is without a doubt Jordan’s most valuable treasure and greatest tourist attraction. It is a vast, unique city, carved into the sheer rock face by the Nabataeans, an industrious Arab people who settled here more than 2000 years ago, turning it into an important junction for the silk, spice and other trade routes that linked China, India and southern Arabia with Egypt, Syria, Greece and Rome.

AQABA With its wealth of attractions, Jordan’s splendid Red Sea resort is often overlooked by modern-day visitors. Apart from being a delightful place for discerning holiday makers, this is actually a great base from which to explore various places of interest in southern Jordan. Aqaba is a fun place. It is a microcosm of all the attributes Jordan has to offer, including a fascinating history with some outstanding sites, excellent hotels and activities, superb visitor facilities, good shopping, and welcoming, friendly people, who enjoy nothing more than making sure their visitors have a good time.

25


DEAD SEA Without a doubt the world’s most amazing place, the Jordan Rift Valley is a dramatic, beautiful landscape, which at the Dead Sea, is over 400m (1,312 ft.) below sea level. The lowest point on the face of the earth, this vast stretch of water receives a number of incoming rivers, including the River Jordan. Once the waters reach the Dead Sea they are landlocked and have nowhere to go, so they evaporate, leaving behind a dense, rich, cocktail of salts and minerals that supply industry, agriculture and medicine with some of its finest products. The Dead Sea is flanked by mountains to the east and the rolling hills of Jerusalem to the west, giving it an almost otherworldly beauty. Although sparsely populated and serenely quiet now, the area is believed to have been home to five Biblical cities: Sodom, Gomorrah, Adman, Zebouin and Zoar (Bela).

AMMAN Amman, the capital of Jordan, is a fascinating city of contrasts – a unique blend of old and new, ideally situated on a hilly area between the desert and the fertile Jordan Valley. The downtown area is much older and more traditional with smaller businesses producing and selling everything from fabulous jewellery to everyday household items.

This allows Oman to preserve its historic character, and at the same time enjoying its contemporary spirit. Muscat is renowned as one of the cleanest Arab capitals, and has gained the honour of winning the Cleanest Arab City Contest several consecutive times. Muscat as a city has played a prominent historical role due to its strategic location.

Salalah Salalah City receives its visitors with large vistas of grass and water mist, opening its arms to them and spreading the shade of its palm trees (locally called “Coconut”). The smell of frankincense wafts through the city. This is the same frankincense that has been portrayed on the walls of ancient Pharaonic temples ever since Hatshepsut journeyed to Oman’s fertile lands. Salalah is famous for its lights that sparkle through the night’s lyrical breezes and the day’s sun rays beating down on the waves that dance in celebration of Salalah’s eternal spring. History and culture play pivotal roles in delineating the features of Salalah people, and the city’s nature and culture. Studies and research carried out by a number of scholars point to the ancient history of this city. This is evidenced by the various writings and inscriptions found on artefacts belonging to a succession of civilisations that have risen and fallen in this land and which still have their impact to the present day. Excavations are still under way to determine the exact historic timeline of these civilizations, including the Al Bilayd civilization which dates back to between the twelfth and sixteenth centuries, and the archaeological finds indicate the existence of much business activity. The unique climatic factors make Salalah a magical spot and the jewel of the Arabian Sea. Here you will enjoy monsoon (khareef) amidst the green carpet woven by nature in Salalah, and marvel at the steep mountain views, bathed in the colors of sunset and sunrise that visitors enjoy every day, and marvel at the abundance of rare types of birds. 35

Turkey

Turkey has so much to offer for visitors; breathtaking natural beauties, unique historical and archaeological sites, steadily improving hotel and touristic infrastructure and a tradition of hospitality and competitive prices. It is not surprising that this country has recently become one of the world’s most popular tourism destinations. Through Turkey’s diverse geography, one can experience four different climates in any one day. The rectangular shaped country is surrounded on three sides by three different seas. Its shores are laced with beaches, bays, coves, ports, islands and peninsulas. The summers are long, lasting as long as eight months in some areas. Turkey is also blessed with majestic mountains and valleys, lakes, rivers, waterfalls and grottoes perfect for winter and summer tourism and sports of all kinds. Skiing fans, mountain climbers, trekkers, hikers and hunters can enjoy new and unforgettable experiences in Turkey.

Istanbul Everything about this wonderful city will have you wishing to visit again as soon as you leave. Being the largest city in Turkey, you definitely have much to see and do here. The city’s over-abundance of important historic buildings, mosques and exciting new art galleries and museums provides visitors with more than enough to see during the day, and even more to see at night. With Istanbul’s exciting nightlife, the bars and restaurants with five-star services provide locals and tourists nights to remember. How about taking the ferry around the Bosphorus to enjoy the views of the the lush parks, palaces and yalıs (waterside mansions)? Or bargaining for carpets and the Grand Bazzar? Whether you stay for a weekend or a whole week, you will always feel like there’s still so much to see from this amazing city.

Antalya Antalya is the fastest-growing city in Turkey, and tourists from around the world are discovering its fabulous mix of great beaches and traditional Turkish culture. Kids will love the Beach Park, which features Aqua Land (a waterslide-fanatic’s dream) and Dolphin Land (home to dolphins, sea lions and white whales). Make sure to explore the old town center and to see Hadrian’s Gate..

Bodrum Although more than one million tourists flock to its beaches, boutique hotels and clubs each summer, Bodrum (Halicarnassus in ancient times) never loses its cool; more than any other Turkish seaside getaway, it has an enigmatic elegance that pervades it, from the town’s grand crowning castle and glittering marina to its flower-filled cafes and whiteplastered backstreets. Even in the most hectic days of high summer, you can still find little corners of serenity, in the town and especially in its outlying coastal villages. Only in the past few decades has Bodrum come to be associated with pleasure, paradisiacal beaches and glittering summertime opulence. Previously, it was a simple fishing village, and old-timers can still remember when everything was in a different place or didn’t exist at all. Long before the palmed promenades and elaborate eateries, Bodrum wasn’t even desirable – it was actually the place where dissidents against the new Turkish republic were sent into exile. Bodrum has one big advantage over many Turkish holiday resorts. It’s just 21 miles from the airport – and these days it is such a rare pleasure to check in to your hotel an hour after you clear immigration. The town itself is a handsome, shimmering vision on a hot morning, with ranks of white stucco houses and bougainvillea climbing a hill above the deep blue of two bays. By night, it basks in the glow of the lit-up St Peter’s Castle, home of the Museum of Underwater Archaeology. Here they display wondrous riches recovered from 3,000 years of shipwrecks in these coastal waters. Look for the fabulous gold seal of Queen Nefertiti, from the famous 14th Century BC Uluburun shipwreck.

Abant Abant Lake is 33km away from Bolu, in the west of the Black Sea region, and exactly halfway between Ankara and Istanbul. The lake can be reached via the E-5, the Istanbul - Ankara highway, and then turning off at Omerler Madensuyu for 22km. Bolu is well connected by bus to other parts of the country. The lake shelters a variety of plants, and 1150 hectares were designated the status of Natural Park in 1988. The main species are Scotch pine, beech, larch, oak, poplar, ash, horn- beam, willow, juniper, forest rose, tamarisk, hazelnut, holly, dog-rose, bracken, blackberry, strawberry, mint, raspberry, ivy, nettle, mare’s tail, and a variety of pasture grasses and trees. Species of animals include pig, deer, roe deer, bear, fox, jackal, rabbit, plus birds of prey and singing birds.

Bursa Standout architectural gems in Bursa include the Green Mosque (Yesil Camii) and Green Tomb (Yesil Turbe), early examples of the Ottoman style and featuring carved marble, calligraphy and glazed tiles. Merchants have gathered at Bursa’s Koza Han caravanserai since 1490, and the covered market dates back to the 14th century. Shop for traditional shadow puppets and sensuous silks, before visiting the vast imperial Great Mosque with its 20 domes and dozen pillars. While you’re here in Bursa, enjoy a doner kebap in the town where this favorite Turkish snack was born. Bursa serves up the original and best kebaps in Turkey, topped with tomato sauce, yogurt and melted butter.

Cyprus 70

However, the protected ancient monuments hand over a rich trail of artifacts and mythical stories. Limassol Castle, Amathus Ruins and Mosque of Djami Kebir are a few of the beautiful sights worth capturing on the lens.

Paphos Pafos, with its pleasant harbor and medieval fort, combines a cosmopolitan holiday resort, spectacular countryside and historical sites. The region offers the possibility of enjoying both sea and mountains, as well as getting a taste of the island’s culture with its many archaeological sites. Feel the romance in the air in the land where Aphrodite, the ancient Greek goddess of love and beauty, once roamed. Swim in the sea by the rocks known as Petra tou Romiou, where she was believed to have risen from the waves, make a pilgrimage to her sanctuary at Kouklia, or visit the grotto near Polis where she was supposed to have bathed. The Pafos region is the perfect place to celebrate a wedding or go for your honeymoon.

MALAYSIA 78


True real multiculturalism has made Malaysia a gastronomical paradise and home to hundreds of colorful festivals. It’s no wonder that we love celebrating and socializing. As a people, Malaysians are very relaxed, warm and friendly. Geographically, Malaysia is almost as diverse as its culture. Rugged mountains reach dramatically for the sky while their rainforest-clad slopes sweep down to floodplains teeming with forest life. Cool highland hideaways roll down to warm, sandy beaches and rich, humid mangroves. For the perfect holiday full of surprises, the time is now, the place is Malaysia.

KUALA LUMPUR The cultural hub of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur is visually defined by the iconic Petronas Twin Towers, which, at 88 stories high, are the tallest twin buildings in the world and a vision of modern architecture. On the flip side, the Sri Mahamariamman is the oldest Hindu temple in Malaysia, its façade a colorful totem pole of iconography. Shopping at the Central Market is a joyful experience that involves haggling, handicrafts, and happiness.

Penang A fascinating fusion of the East and West, Penang embraces modernity while retaining its traditions and old world charm. These are reflected in its harmonious multiracial populace and well-preserved heritage buildings which led to Georgetown being accorded a listing as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site recently. Long regarded as the food capital of Malaysia, Penang also entices visitors with its beautiful coasts and scrumptious cuisines.

Langkawi Langkawi is an archipelago made up of 99 islands on Malaysia’s west coast. Surrounded by turquoise sea, the interior of the main island is a mixture of picturesque paddy fields and jungle-clad hills. If you’re intent on carting off duty-free alcohol, cigarettes and chocolate, then this is the place to be. Still, Nature-lovers will find the island just as agreeable as the shoreline is fringed by powder-fine sand and swaying coconut trees. Langkawi is especially recognised for its excellent diving opportunities and this tropical gem hides a treasure trove of other exciting holiday opportunities. From the expansive Underwater World Langkawi along Pantai Cenang to the soaring Cable Car in Pantai Kok, Langkawi is an electrifying locale that keeps visitors coming back for more.

Udaipur is also the centre for performing arts, crafts and its famed miniature paintings. The Shilpgram festival is a great crowd-puller on new year.

Jodhpur is also known as the Sun City because the sun shines brightly here every day of the year, and as Blue City since most houses in the old part of the city are painted blue. The forts and palaces, temples and havelis, culture and tradition, spices and fabrics, color and texture, a booming handicrafts industry, all add up to make this historic city worth a visit.

Bengaluru Capital of Karnataka State, Bengaluru, also known as the ‘City of Gardens’, is one of the most attractive cities in India with its beautiful parks, avenues and impressive buildings. The once-sedate cantonment settlement of the British has now spread way beyond the mud fort and the four towers constructed by Kempe Gowda in 1537. With its booming economy and racy lifestyle, the capital of Karnataka has metamorphosed from a sleepy Garden City into one of India’s fastest growing, accommodating, technophiliac, and cosmopolitan cities. Bangalore is a city of contrasts, going by several other aliases: India’s Silicon Valley, Pub City, Shopper’s Paradise, Garden City, Air-conditioned City, Gourmet’s Delight, Pub Hopper’s Paradise and Shopper’s Hot Spot. Surrounded by weekend getaways, Bangalore makes an ideal hub for visitors who want to travel to the many hill stations and coastal towns of South India.

Ooty Udhagamandalam or Ooty, located at an altitude of 2,240 m, has a unique flavour among Indian towns. Its history, coupled with the pleasant temperate mountain climate and beautiful scenic grandeur against the backdrop of Nilgiri Hills, gives it a colonial charm, typical of a British era hill town which, in fact, it once was. Udhagamandalam was founded in 1819 by John Sullivan, the then Governor of Coimbatore, who promoted the place’s charms. Udhagamandalam‘s temperatures hover between 9°C to 19°C, offering a cool retreat from the heat of the plains below. It is for this and the beautiful greenery that the town of Udhagamandalam is rightly known as the Queen of Hills.

Pokhara You can travel to Pokhara from the capital Kathmandu using the tourist buses that are readily available or the local microbuses or buses which leave Kathmandu for Pokhara almost every 15 minutes. These buses are available until late afternoon. There are night buses as well running on this route but these can be a painful ride, so avoid them. The local buses will cost you around Rs. 400-600. Coming from the southern border to India, several buses leave to Pokhara from the border city. It takes about 8 hours and costs Rs. 280-380.

A 12-seater vehicle will cost around Rs. 5500 from Butwal to Pokhara.

MALDIVES

116


The islands of Maldives appear in-between the trading route of the Indian Ocean. Thus settlers and visitors from neighbouring regions and around the world have come in contact with the islands for as long as history has been recorded. Such is the to-and-fro flow of people and their cultures that a marked effect has been left in the Maldivian people, the language, beliefs, arts, and attitudes. Maldivian beliefs have been very much based around religion and superstition, often used together in matters of significance but given separate positions in society. In matters of faith, Islam dominates, but influence of the supernatural still continues to play a major role in most island communities, possibly giving credit to the folklores and Buddhist traditions of the islands’ first settlers before conversion to Islam in 1153 AD.

Colombo Colombo is the gateway to Sri Lanka for most travelers— but don’t be tempted to simply pass through this diverse and interesting city. Take a train ride along the coast to Mount Lavinia, a popular beach, or explore the Talangama Wetland.

Kandy Kandy-a major tourist destination-is also known as the cultural capital of Sri Lanka. Nestled in the hills at an altitude of 488 m, it is located at a distance of 115 km from Colombo. Kandy has a rich history. It was originally known as Senkadagala pura after a hermit named Senkada who lived there. Many of Sinhalese people call it Mahanuwara meaning the Great City. The name Kandy was derived by the colonial rulers from the word Kanda in Sinhala, meaning a hill. Kandy was the stronghold of the Sinhalese kings, who promoted and protected the local culture until the city fell to the British in 1815. Today a bustling commercial city, Kandy is famous for the Kandy Perahara-a huge cultural pageant that takes place in the month of July or August. It is one of the most colorful processions of the world. Thousands of drummers and dancers accompanying a parade of ornamented elephants perform in the streets of Kandy. The leading tusker carries the sacred tooth relic of Lord Buddha, while the spectators pay homage to it. The procession moves along the streets for seven consecutive nights and

AUSTRIA

Austria flaunts its heritage in exuberant fashion. Vienna’s bombastic Habsburg palaces and Salzburg’s baroque splendour are worthy, but dig deeper and you’ll unearth Stone Age settlements, Roman archaeological sites at Carnantum and medieval festivals. In the country where Mozart composed and Strauss taught the world to twirl, you won’t need to search hard for culture – it waltzes right up to you. This country’s mix between modern and medieval times will leave you astonished with the buildings and the overcrowded cities. With many attractions, and many places to visit, you will always want to come back for more of this beautiful country.

Vienna Few cities in the world glide so effortlessly between the present and the past like Vienna. Its splendid historical face is easily recognized: grand imperial palaces and bombastic baroque interiors, museums flanking magnificent squares and, above all, the Hofburg – where the Habsburg rulers lived, loved and married into empires.

Salzburg Dreaming spires, green hills and romantic gardens – the city’s attractions are loved by millions of visitors from all over the World hungry for Salzburg sightseeing. With a tourist-per-capita ratio higher than Venice or Florence, the city is among the busiest places of Europe all year round.

Zell am See Zell am See is the “capital” of the Pinzgau region and has a nice, historic town centre and a lakeside promenade that offer some sightseeing opportunities. Lake Zellersee offers all sorts of water sports in summer; hiking is good. Summer skiing is possible on the glacier of the Kitzsteinhorn; during the winter, skiing makes Zell am See one of the busiest towns in Salzburg.

France has so much to offer; great food, fascinating scenery, exciting activities, unique shopping, etc. Whatever your interest, you’ll be able to find something to enrich your life and provide pleasure while traveling in France. Whether you want a trip filled with activities or just a getaway vacation to relax and take your mind off of life’s daily stresses, France has got it all. For those who want to participate in sports or have an active trip, there are lots of choices. Skiing is a popular activity throughout the winter, and biking takes over in spring and summer. There’s also an extensive range of water sports, such as white water rafting, sailing, canoeing, and swimming. There are plenty of relaxing things to do if you prefer a less energetic, yet still enjoyable, look at the country. Taking a ride in a hot air balloon is a unique way to see the French countryside. You float over picture-perfect small towns and villages, each with a distinct look. Depending on the region, you may see vineyards, or sunflowers and fields of lavender. Wherever you’re traveling, you can count on the scenery being gorgeous.

Paris Paris, the ultra-cosmopolitan French capital city, has a longstanding global reputation as a mecca of art, culture, fashion, gastronomy, history and architecture. Called the City of Light, City of Love and Capital of Fashion, Paris is not only brimming with internationally famous attractions but is an energetic city where beauty and vivacity ever-weave its curvy streets. Paris’ starring role on the global stage makes it a prime destination for travelers, who have many reasons to visit beyond the emblematic Eiffel Tower and the world-renowned wines. Parisian landmarks are recognized as much for their architectural grandeur as for their historical significance. One of the most popular landmarks is the Arc de Triomphe, which overlooks the world-famous Champs-Elysees avenue. Notre Dame is another historic landmark, and one of the world’s most famous cathedrals. With its breathtaking Gothic and Renaissance design, and an equally overwhelming interior of artistic detail, Notre Dame has a colorful history that lends insight into French culture. There is no doubt that Paris is filled with culture and history to leave you with dazzling memories of the past.

Cannes Cannes is such a beautiful old town. Cloaked in ancient history it sits with such a regal permanence that is gained only through the passing of time, through the ages. Centuries of changes renders the town of Cannes and its islands as much a part of the landscape as the mountains and sea that frame it are. It’s not just about the beaches, the restaurants, the local wining and dining, the history of Cannes allows you to feel the sense of time, and our own fleeting graze on the surface of it. The origin of Cannes lies not in the old city itself but out in the calm blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea where a tiny cluster of two, mostly uninhabited islands, less than 2 miles offshore, play harbormaster to the towns story. Never a shrinking violet, the town of Cannes has always been a key player on this part of the French Riviera’s coast.

GREECE

154


Greece is much more than we were taught at school and than we have seen in the photos with beautiful sunsets and golden sandy beaches. In Greece, you are in a crossroad of colors and cultures; you feel the strength of History and the warmth of the southern extremity of Europe and you discover the evolutionary course of thought, influence and experience. You are in a country with a uniquely affluent historical past, whose people, however, do not rest on their laurels and are not stuck in that past. You are in a country that, though statistically small, is huge in its diversity. You see landscapes that have given thousands of postcard images but remain incredibly vivid and of unrivalled beauty. Greece is a country of beautiful contradictions, a constant journey in time, from the present to the past and back again. Walk through the olive groves, through archaeological sites; move to clusters of islands, go through beaches and mountains and explore the breath-taking scenery. In Greece the succession of images is not just our imagination; it is a sheer reality.

MYKONOS The most famous of the Greek islands and one of the world’s most popular holiday resorts, Mykonos has been welcoming visitors for over half a century. To all who wish to experience the magic of this little island, the information on this site will provide a well-rounded and honest picture of what it has to offer. Mykonos is a grand example of unique Cycladic architecture set around a picturesque fishing-village bay. Totally whitewashed organic cube-like buildings fit closely together to form a kind of haphazard maze of narrow alley ways and streets. The earthen colors of the bare hills which surround the town’s gleaming whiteness is set between the aura of an incredibly blue sky and even deeper blue sparkling sea. Its many well preserved windmills and hundreds of tiny red-roofed churches add a flavor of culture and custom to the scene, enhanced even further by many museums and the historical ancient site of Delos. Together with being friendly and open people, the locals have a healthy understanding of what it means to have a good time. Put this together with all the island’s other qualities and it is no wonder Mykonos has been often named “the jewel” of the Aegean Sea. As well as catering to the demands of its summer guests with an infrastructure that has been well developed over the years, an off-season tourist industry has also emerged making it possible to visit in comfort during the non-summer months. Frequent air and sea connections together with heated rooms and good taverns in and around the main town, allow the adventurous traveler to properly experience the island’s natural beauty. When the crowds have departed, it is then that Mykonos can best be enjoyed as the tiny Cycladic fishing village it has always been.

ITALY

162


Italy is a nation that hosts unique and fascinating events of international resonance throughout the year, providing innumerable opportunities for experiencing intense emotions. Italy has been, since antiquity, the centre of history, culture and art. Italy is a land of pilgrimage - one of the foremost in the world - and is home to countless places of devotion and worship. Italy is an unparalleled and mandatory destination for anyone wishing to travel the historical roads of Christianity.

Rome Modern and old, past and present go side by side, all the time. Whether you are in Rome for 3 days, 3 weeks or 3 months, be prepared to step into the world’s biggest open air museum. You can decide to follow the typical tourist paths or you can be luck or brave enough to go off the usual tracks. One way or the other, Rome will seduce you and it will hardly leave you indifferent. It will surprise you, like a beautiful middle aged woman that has still plenty to offer and whose beauty is just been merely blurred by time passing by. Rome is one of world’s most photogenic cities - not surprising when you remember what’s here The Vatican, the Trevi Fountain, St Peter’s Square, Spanish Steps, Colosseum... Whether you spend your time sightseeing, or lazing in cafés watching the world go by, it will be your turn to feature in your very own Roman holiday. Rome is a romantic place for honey-moon, favorite holiday destination, and city of fashion.

Florence Florence’s museums, palaces, and churches house some of the greatest artistic treasures in the world. The most popular and important sites in Florence include the Cathedral, the Baptistery, the Uffizi, the Bargello, and the Accademia. The churches of Santa Maria Novella and Santa Croce are veritable art galleries, and the library of San Lorenzo is a magnificent exhibition of Michelangelo’s architectural genius. Wander some of the oldest streets in the city until you reach the Arno River, cross the Ponte Vecchio, and experience the “newest” area of Florence, the Oltrarno. Be sure to set aside time to see the vast and varied art collection housed in the Pitti Palace. When you grow weary of museums and monuments, head outdoors. Spend a day at the Boboli Gardens or climb the hill to the church of San Miniato al Monte to experience an enchanting view of Florence.

163


Venice With its gondolas, canals, amazing restaurants, and unforgettable romantic ambiance, Venice is definitely a city for one’s bucket list. Waterfront palazzos, palaces, and churches make drifting down the Grand Canal feel like cruising through a painting. To really experience Venice you must go to the opera or to a classical music performance, nibble fresh pasta and pastries, and linger in the exhibit halls of an art gallery. Label lovers will drool over the high-end shopping in Piazza San Marco.

CAPRI Capri is a beautiful little island in the Bay of Naples and so, to get here, you’ll need to take a boat! Hydrofoils and ferries to Capri depart from Naples and Sorrento. In the summer months, sea crossings are also available from Positano, Amalfi, Salerno and the island of Ischia. For much of the year, you will be not able to take your car or motorbike to Capri: non-resident vehicles are allowed to circulate on the island from November to the first week before Easter only. In any case, a car is of very little use here: there is just one carriageway on the whole island and public transport is excellent.

COMO’S LAKE A gorgeous spot that’s a convenient day trip from Milan, Lake Como recently earned fame as home to Hollywood star George Clooney. But celeb-spotting aside, it’s known for jaw-dropping natural beauty, elegant old villas—and the scenic towns surrounding the lake. Check out Varenna, Bellagio, and Menaggio, which offer great views, historic churches, and water-based activities such as ferries and passenger-only boats.

London used to be the world’s largest metropolis and although it has ceded that title to the sprawling cities of the southern hemisphere, it’s still a huge bewildering place if it’s your first visit. Even if you speak English fluently you can only learn how to pronounce place names like’ Greenwich’ ‘Leicester Square’ and ‘Chomondeley Place’ by example. Many visitors waste large amounts of money simply because they don’t know the tips and wrinkles that Londoners have picked up intuitively. So in this section, we assume that it’s your first visit to our shores - some of the information here you’ll probably already know, but it’s worth reading it all at your leisure (print off this page and take it to bed with a cup of cocoa) - you’ll certainly save time and money if you do.
