Sri Lanka is nothing but fun and excitement for all ages. Explore the adventurous Udawalawa National Park and experience wildlife up close and then relax on the golden Unawatuna Beach while sipping on coconut juice. Catch the sunset as it reflects a beam of yellow as it hits the clear sparkling water. Sri Lanka is a natural beauty with picturesque beaches, waterfalls, gardens and rolling hills. It's also a cultural playground for all to enjoy as traditions, religion, customs and arts is essential to the daily lives of the Sri Lankans.


Located in the Andaman Sea, some 30 kilometres off the mainland coast of north-western Malaysia, Langkawi is the largest and most populous island in an archipelago of over 100 islands. Most visitors stay on the eponymous Pulau Langkawi, with the only other inhabited island being nearby Pulau Tuba. Officially known as Langkawi, the Jewel of Kedah, the archipelago is known for its dramatic scenery and profusion of mysteries and legends. Surrounded by turquoise sea and swaying coconut palms, the interior of the main island is a mixture of picturesque paddy fields and jungle-clad hills. Langkawi is recognised for its excellent diving and snorkelling opportunities and you'll want to go island-hopping to enjoy isolated sandy beaches and freshwater lakes.


There's more to O'ahu than luaus and leis – say aloha to the Hawaiian hub that wears the capital city town. Strewn across O'ahu's southern shores, Honolulu is arguably Hawaii's best known destination. While Honolulu is a shining example of Hawaii's modern side, it still flaunts classic Hawaiian hospitality. The district of Waikiki has served as a sunny playground for royalty, celebrities and sun-seekers. A heady mix of high-rises and a long stretch of white sand makes Waikiki hard to resist, but do try to tear yourself away from the surf and discover the historic Downtown district and the quiet foothills of the Ko'olau Mountains.


Escape our winter and head to sunny Sydney! Endless beaches, spectacular scenery and iconic wonders await. See some of Australia's most iconic sights such as the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge. Enjoy serious sun time in one of the city's golden beaches. The soft sands of Sydney's northern beaches stretch out from Manly up to Palm Beach, with chic coastal towns along the way. For a scenic walk, head south to Bondi Beach, and follow the trail to Bronte Beach and Coogee Beach. And if that's not enough, take a day trip to the stunning Blue Mountains.
