'''[[Borobudur]]''' is a Buddhist stupa and temple complex dating from the 8th century, and a [[UNESCO World Heritage Site]]. This is one of world's truly great ancient monuments, the single largest Buddhist structure anywhere on earth, and few who visit fail to be taken by both the scale of place, and the remarkable attention to detail that went into the construction.

'''[[Nusa Lembongan]]''', fast becoming one of Bali's most popular attractions, is an island paradise a world away from the hassle and hectic pace of [[South Bali]]. Neither hawkers nor traffic mar the magnificent scenery; this is a fine place to just put your feet up and relax. Main activities include surfing, diving and snorkeling. The water is some of the clearest you will find anywhere, and a vivid aqua blue in colour.

'''[[Ubud]]''' is far removed from the drunken bikini scene in [[Kuta]], and is regarded as the cultural centre of [[Bali]]. It is famous as an arts and crafts hub, and much of the town and nearby villages seems to consist of artists' workshops and galleries. There are some remarkable architectural sights, artistic gems to be found, and a general feeling of well being to be enjoyed, all thanks to the spirit, surroundings, and climate of the place.

'''[[Yaowarat and Phahurat]]''' is Bangkok's multicultural district, home to Bangkok's sizable Chinese and Indian communities. By day, Yaowarat doesn't look that much different from any other part of Bangkok, though the neighborhood feels like a big street market and there are some hidden gems waiting to be explored. But at night, the neon signs blazing with Chinese characters are turned on and crowds from the restaurants spill out onto the streets, turning the area into a miniature Hong Kong (minus the skyscrapers). Phahurat is an excellent place for buying fabrics, accessories and religious paraphernalia.

'''[[Singapore]]''' is a city-state in [[Southeast Asia]]. Founded as a British trading colony in 1819, since independence it has become one of the world's most prosperous countries and sports the world's busiest port.  Combining the skyscrapers and subways of a modern, affluent city with a medley of Chinese, Indian and Malay influences and a tropical climate, with tasty food, good shopping and a vibrant nightlife scene, this Garden City makes a great stopover or springboard into the region.

Backpackers and budget travelers are drawn here by some of the cheapest accommodation and travel deals in Thailand.

'''[[Hilversum]]''' is a medium-sized city in the [[Gooi and Vecht Region|Gooi]] area of [[North Holland]] in the [[Netherlands]]. Once called the Garden of Amsterdam, most travelers still come over to cycle and hike through the surrounding forests and heath. The city is also known for its modern architecture, with Dudok's ''Hilversum Town Hall'' (''Raadhuis Hilversum'') being the most significant design. For Dutch people, Hilversum became synonymous with the Dutch media industry.

Combine those with some of the most interesting historical pubs in the whole city, and a vibrant restaurant and cafe scene, and Hampstead really does have much to offer the visitor.

'''[[Copenhagen]]''' is the capital of [[Denmark]] and what a million Danes call home. This "friendly old girl of a town" is big enough to be a metropolis with shopping, culture and nightlife par excellence, yet still small enough to be intimate, safe and easy to navigate. Overlooking the Øresund strait with Sweden just minutes away, it is a cultural and geographic link between mainland Europe and Scandinavia. This is where old fairy tales blend with flashy new architecture and world-class design; where warm jazz mixes with cold electronica from Copenhagen's basements.

Long considered the backwaters of the city, this old working class district is now undergoing rapid development, contributing to some wonderful contrasts; from the huge uncultivated wetlands of Kalvebod Fælled, the ultra modern Ørestad development area, the laid back and impossibly picturesque Dragør fishing hamlet to the fiercely local patriotic public housing blocks on the northern part of the island.
