Athens, Greece

Ah, Athens. We wouldn’t have philosophy and democracy (Greek words!) as we know them without the ancient Greeks. Their presence remains palpable in Athens — the awe-inspiring Parthenon continues to watch over the capital, as it has done so for the past 2,500 years. Part of the Acropolis complex, the temple and the surrounding marbled monuments are impressive sights that you’ll definitely have to see and experience in person.

Athens is not just ancient ruins, however. The city sizzles hot with a vibrant communal life, evidenced by the bustling Agora market. Meaning ‘gathering place,’ the Agora was once the centre of ancient Athenian politics. Now it’s the heart of everyday Athenian life — expect much haggling and jostling at this lively bazaar bursting full of local colour!

Even so, the fun doesn’t quite begin till the sun goes down. Sporting themed bars and groovy dance clubs, remember to go wild in a Dionysiac frenzy with Athens’ thriving nightlife!

Bangkok, Thailand

Bangkok really needs no introduction — the Thai capital is synonymous with the phrases ‘shopping spree’ and ‘weekend getaway’. With fantastic bargains and tantalising street food, the city is everyone’s choice destination for a quick and easy vacation.

For those looking for something different, however, check out these new night markets and cafes popping up around town, or go catch late-night Muay Thai matches and sing your heart out at 24/7 karaoke joints with this guide to the city’s nightlife districts. Indeed, whether you’re a first-timer or a well-seasoned haggler fluent in marketplace Thai, there’s always reason enough to snap up a ticket or two to Bangkok!

Bali, Indonesia

Forget hackneyed articles promising an ‘eat, pray, love’ experience in the Island of the Gods — it’ll be hard to keep your zen at Bali’s overcrowded beaches during peak holiday season. Immensely popular with tourists from the world over, you’ll do much better by exploring the Indonesian island’s deep cultural and spiritual heritage at local temple ceremonies or on hiking trails to discover otherworldly sights and monuments.

Of course, if you’re looking for more conventional fun, the trendy Seminyak district is stuffed full of beach shops and snazzy cafes; rice terraces and local crafts await you at cultural Ubud, while Kerobokan’s the place to go to for luxurious seaside resorts, fine-dining venues and strips of glistening black sand.

Honolulu, Hawaii

With its picture-perfect beaches and challenging waves, you’ll soon be tempted to hula your way down to Honolulu for your fill of fun in the sun. Play by the iconic sands of Waikiki or attempt a death-defying cliff jump at Spitting Cave. Else, trek up Diamond Head and take in breathtaking views of the colourful Polynesian capital from atop the volcanic cone.

For those looking for leisure indoors, there’s always retail therapy at the open-air Ala Moana Center and the upscale boutiques of the Royal Hawaiian Center. After gorging yourself on poké bowls and buttered garlic prawns at the North Shore, sidle on over to Bishop Museum for an enriching afternoon. Come evening, Kaena Point provides magnificent views of a star-speckled sky on clear nights.

Sapporo, Japan

There’s no better time to visit this prefectural capital than in winter — despite the bitter cold, the city is never more alive, with a bunch of wintertime festivals held annually at Odori Park. Succulent bratwurst and hot mulled wine are to be had at the German Christmas Festival, and marvel at the Sapporo Snow Festival’s monumental ice sculptures, all adorned by the decorative light-ups of the Sapporo White Illumination.

Sapporo’s also the perfect springboard to explore the stunning wintry landscapes of Hokkaido; head to Niseko for world-famous powder-white snow and backcountry ski runs, or take a romantic stroll by the gaslit Otaru Canal in the eponymous city. With its mysterious volcanic lakes and migratory wildlife transformed by the cold, winter is truly a magical season for the prefecture.

Seoul, South Korea

Seoul has undergone a seismic change over the past decade and now emerges as a dynamic city with an eye on the future — here, K-pop beats are fast, but internet speeds run even faster. But Seoul’s undeniable charm must include its sense of tradition — the Bukchon Hanok Village, Gyeongbokgung Palace and Changdeokgung Palace provide a cultural experience that must be on every itinerary to the Korean capital.

Otherwise, indulge in every modern pleasure Seoul has to offer: shop for Korean cosmetics at Myeongdong, go on a ride or two at Lotte World, find bargains at any of its various underground malls, then dip tired feet into the Cheonggyecheon Stream. Get back up and do it all again while savouring some delicious street food. Hot and spicy tteokbokki, anyone?
