The tropical idyll of Bali offers superb watersports, landscapes, hotels and culture for a varied luxury holiday.
In the centre of South America lies the largest inland delta in the world, the Pantanal, or flooded outback, in the Brazilian state of Mato Grosso.
Botswana's Kalahari is a semi-arid desert and the most species rich in the world.
Puglia, on the heel of Italy's boot, is a destination apart, both culturally and geographically.
The Basque Country and Rioja offer world class wine, award-winning gastronomy, outstanding contemporary art and architecture, culture, surfing, beaches and charming cities. Not a bad little combination.
Myanmar (Burma) is a country of history, culture, and incredibly beautiful landscapes, and we are delighted to be offering holidays there
The remote Quirimbas Archipelago is one of the last untouched wilderness areas on Africa’s Indian Ocean coast.
The tropical lowlands to the north of Sri Lanka contain several World Heritage-listed sites and, because they are close together, these can easily be combined in one superb (and triangle shaped) cultural tour.
A holiday to Hanoi, exploring the culture of Vietnam's capital, combines well with a meandering boat tour around the beautiful Halong Bay.
Ladakh contains one of the most intact Tantric Buddhist societies left on earth.
The State of Bahia is known as ‘the land of the drum’. It is one of the most historic regions of Brazil, with a number of important cultural attractions, as well as endless miles of beautiful coastline.
A 45-minute flight from Guatemala City to Flores in the steamy Petén region of northern Guatemala, Tikal’s 3,000 temples, shrines, ceremonial platforms, ball courts and plazas lie in the heart of the jungle.
Turquoise sea, beautiful bays and pretty little villages line Turkey's south western coast - a holiday in its own right or great in combination with Istanbul.
Malta's shy little sister, Gozo is a real favourite of ours because of its laid-back atmosphere, great beaches, and relative anonymity.
Tanzania's spectacular equivalent of the Masai Mara, packed with wildlife and often with tourists; but we know how to avoid them.
