Ho Chi Minh City

Located near the Mekong River, Ho Chi Minh City is the largest and most exciting city in Vietnam. With a population now almost 8 million people, it’s one of the densest urban areas in the world and it’s common to see houses where several families share the same living space. For a foreigner, visiting Ho Chi Minh is a real experience! It’s a vibrant and an ‘in transition’ city. Unlike other cities in Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh is also very active at night, with many bars and restaurants to entertain you!

Sälen

Just imagine, throughout the year our mountainsides are shared by berry-pickers, walkers, cyclists and skiers. Snow-covered birch trees, willow bushes and lingonberries create great forest skiing for youngsters in the winter, and are also home to real delicacies for mushroomers in the autumn. You’ll feel at home in Sälenfjällen – whether the landscape is dressed in white and your walking boots, fishing rods, bikes and canoes have been replaced by skis, sledges and snowboards, or it is the height of summer and you’re enjoying games and bathing in our lakes and streams. This is a place where children can roam freely and enjoy themselves.

Split

The coastline of the Atlantic Sea cradles the elegance of the historical city of Split. Chosen by the Roman emperor Diocletian as his city of residence, Split accommodates his Palace, an over 1700 years old giant that comprehends an intricate complex of quaint alleys and square. Due to its vastness and impressively excellent conservation, the ancient colossus can be referred to as a city within a city. While the charm of the city's historical sites captivates the multitude of holiday-makers who flock to Split throughout the hot Croatian summer, the unspoiled nature and crystalline waters just make them fall in love. The people of Split claim that their city is "the most beautiful one in the world and beyond," and the well spirited Split aims to convince you of this! The city is full of life and soul, and the friendly local people of Split are waiting to welcome you with open arms. Only a few cities in the world can offer such variety of entertainment and excursions in their closest surroundings as Split.

Tasty in Antwerp: Theatre Area

The Theatre District owes its name to the many theatres here. This is the working habitat of many directors, actors, dancers and musicians: in the pubs you can almost hear the creativity bubbling away. It’s worth a visit during the day, too, because you’ll find many fashion, antique and interior design shops here, as well as two small but beautiful museums: the Maiden’s House Museum and the Museum Mayer van den Bergh.

Dunedin

Dunedin, on the rugged east coast of New Zealand’s South Island, is a city of style and creativity where man and nature meet. Officially founded in 1848 by the Free Church of Scotland, it's home to twenty five thousand students at the University of Otago who mingle with the town’s landed gentry to create an eclectic destination that enthralls all who pass through. Surrounded by a deep blue harbour on one side and rolling misty hills on the other, Dunedin’s lush green dales and old world architecture pay tribute to the city’s Scottish heritage. Dunedin is a creative hub that attracts the country’s leading designers in every field from fashion to music, architecture, graphics and jewellery.

Tasty in Antwerp: St. Andrew's

St. Andrew's was once known as ‘the Parish of Hardship’, but those days are long since passed.

There’s always something going on in this district. And don’t miss Kloosterstraat, with its shops full of antique treasures and bric-a-brac.

In the shadow of the Cathedral of Our Lady, the city teems with life in intimate pubs and restaurants. The banks of the Scheldt are a great place for a breath of fresh air.

Jeddah

For centuries, Jeddah has been a meeting point for traders, travelers and pilgrims in the Red Sea. It is a major port, an important commercial center and the second largest city in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, famous for its wealth of restaurants, cafes and shopping districts and for its comparatively liberal social life. But to many the city is more important because it is a gateway for millions of pilgrims on their way to the holiest places in Islam: Mecca and Medina. It is a grand city with history, personality and tons of opportunity.
