Arts and culture, find yourself in Bali
There’s no denying that increased tourism has led to a lot of development in Denpasar (which means more luxury resorts to choose from) but nonetheless, the mystical temples, exotic weather, relaxed atmosphere and spicy food make for a gem of a trip.
The city of flowers is a perfect blend of modern meets Balinese culture. Arts and culture are centred on Hinduism and the city is decorated with many temples, the most renowned being the Pura Agung Jagatnatha, Pura Maospahit, and Puri Pemecutan. Not only are these ancient sites of an intriguing past but they are awash with colourful celebrations and festive anniversaries. Denpasar is also the host of the annual Bali Arts Festival which is a cultural treat if you are visiting in June and July.
Full of energy, the modern city of Nairobi
The safari capital of the world and East Africa’s most cosmopolitan city, Nairobi is a city of two halves. It’s an energetic, multicultural, modern city of glitz and glamour yet within the city’s boundaries you’ll find herds of giraffe, zebra and buffalo in the national park.
A world in tune with nature, the City in the Sun offers breath-taking scenery, natural attractions and a fascinating introduction to both wildlife and nightlife. And if you fancy a trip, hop on board the Nairobi-Mombasa line of the Jambo Kenya Deluxe - one of the finest rail trips the world has to offer!
A city of icons, Washington
As well as being the home of the White House and an array of iconic memorials, Washington DC is a vibrant city with great food, art and cultural attractions. From iconic movie backgrounds and lesser known American architecture to the historic National Mall where Dr. Martin Luther King made his world-changing speech…it’s a city with plenty of history and culture.
Plan your summer trip around one of the biggest events on their calendar and you could
be celebrating Independence Day in the most American setting. For those shopaholics,
it has an enormous shopping experience that most other cities would find difficult to
match and if sport is more your thing, it has live sporting events in excess!
