Our Top Six Cities Around the World

When asked to picture their perfect holiday, many people's minds immediately hit the beach; warm white sand between the toes, sparkling azure waters and someone rather good-looking fanning you with a large palm leaf. And who are we to deny such glories? But here at Original Travel we're also partial to something a little more… rousing. That is to say we love a good city. Oh yes, we rub our hands together in veritable glee at the prospect of bustling markets, burgeoning foodie scenes, street art, botanical gardens, booming nightlife and incredible architecture. And whether you're in need of a short sharp hit of culture with a classic weekend city break or are exploring as part of a longer trip, we've got the inside track (and a network of concierge contacts), to ensure the ultimate city adventure…

Five of the Best: Spring Breaks

The atmosphere is punctured by mingling aromas of incense, leather, spices and myriad other unknown fragrances while sparks fly overhead from a nearby ironmonger as you meander and wind your way past craftsmen, snake charmers and soothsayers. Anyone hoping for muted tones and unassuming sophistication is either never leaving the hotel, or has boarded the wrong flight…
