Culture enthusiasts have a myriad of fascinating, ancient sites and shimmering temples to visit. Fashion lovers can shop till they drop, with gleaming luxury megamalls in no short supply.

In the evenings, the city comes alive with glittering lights. The best way to take in the views and make the most of everything this metropolis has to offer is with a relaxed drink on one of Bangkok’s many rooftop terraces.
Postcard worthy beaches, tropical islands and deliciously authentic foods - welcome to Maldives. The beaches on this gorgeous stretch of sand are nothing short of spectacular but there’s much more to the island than its sun soaked beaches. Travel inland and discover the real beauty the island has to offer. Discover lush green rainforests, tumbling multi tier waterfalls and national parks filled with wildlife like lizards, turtles and snakes.
Thrill seekers have an entire host of activities to get stuck into, too. Snorkelling and scuba diving are ideal, with transparent waters filled with intriguing marine life. Zip lines, kayaking and quad biking are also common throughout the island.
After the bustling and hectic Bangkok, spend the afternoon soaking up the sun with an ice-cold cocktail in hand. Enjoy the shining white sands and lush green forests; swim in the shallow waters just ten minutes from the coastline and find endlessly colourful coral reefs.
