Whether you’re a serious foodie, a couple looking for romance, friends who love to shop or a family in search of fun and entertainment, a city break is the portal that takes you straight into the life and soul of a country. Depending on what you love to see and do, the possibilities are endless. Our city holidays tick off the most exotic and iconic locations around the world.
Bright lights and the buzz of city nights…
Known as one of the best cities in the world, Sydney will roll all of your city break dreams into one. With it’s gorgeous climate and laid back lifestyle, there is an abundance of things to see and do in this beautiful city, you will never be bored. Hop on a ferry past the harbour bridge to Manly for a seafood lunch, take the coastal walk from Bondi to Coogee and look for whales, enjoy a romantic dinner at a revolving restaurant overlooking the city and then head to the iconic Opera House to see a show. Why not make the most of this city break and book a multi centre trip? Mix things up, book a stopover and enjoy a few days exploring Thailand or Dubai.
For those who would prefer a city break that’s a little closer to home, Singapore is a sensory overload, bursting at the seams with fun activities, guided tours and a beautiful blend of ethnic diversity. Head to the night safari at Singapore’s wildlife park and as you wander through the jungle, see if you can spot any of the city’s 120 nocturnal creatures, from tigers to alligators and monkeys!
Kuala Lumpur has earned the title of Malaysia’s biggest and brightest city. Book yourself a luxury hotel and unwind in a tranquil spa just minutes from the beating heart of the city. Here, you can eat your weight in delicious street food, take a trip to Monkey Hill or go for a wander through KL Forest Eco park.
With all our luxury city breaks, you can always factor in a beach holiday at either end of your trip. There is nothing quite like a healthy blend of hustle and bustle mixed with a little sun, sea and sand. Or, if you only like city life in small doses, simply see that city you’ve always dreamed of as a stopover on the way to the main country you’re visiting.
