Bali

Bali's breathtakingly beautiful scenery makes it easy to just settle for the cliche imaginary of the island as a tropical paradise and nothing more. But behind the luxury resorts, picture-perfect rice fields and idyllic beaches lies a rich culture, steeped in tradition and spirituality, and one of the friendliest and most welcoming places you're likely to find anywhere. Dare to go beyond the comforts of the resort areas to truly explore all the island has to offer, and let yourself be rewarded with memories to last a lifetime. Denpasar is the capital city of Bali and the commercial and administrative center. Unlike other island or hinterland in Indonesia, this cosmopolitan city’s style contrasts with the calm Hindu temples, lush terrace, and beautiful beaches, makes Denpasar is worth a visit.

Tours

The bright, lively capital of the Loire Valley region straddles not one beautiful river, but two – the Loire and the Cher – with the picturesque Vieux Tours old quarter lying on the long narrow peninsula between them. Brilliant modern architecture contrasts with an array of historic buildings, and all over France the city is famed for fine food and wine. There’s a sense that this is the place to enjoy the good life. No wonder the writer Honoré de Balzac called it “a smiling city”.

Menorca

Menorca (or Minorca) was named after the Spanish word 'menor', meaning smaller, so that the name already reveals that Menorca is indeed smaller than its neighboring islands. As so, the majority of holidaymakers flock to the more publicity-prone islands of Mallorca and Ibiza, while Menorca attracts those who want the best of the Balearics without losing themselves in the crowd. The stunning coves with white sand beaches are a draw by themselves but the historic remains of the British occupation, the countryside, and the tranquility of this quieter isle all make for its charm that attracts visitors year by year, and always again.

Corfu

Corfu is considered by many to be the most beautiful of all the Greek islands. It is the greenest of the Ionian Islands and probably also the best known. The island offers a beguiling landscape of wild flowers, cypress trees, olive trees and several seductively sandy beaches. The west coast of the island is the most attractive, as that is the place where you will find some of the prettiest countryside, and it is also here that you will find the small coves with the sandy beaches surrounded by cliffs and trees. The north coast is more typical Greek with a rocky coastline where the crystal clear water has chopped into pebbled bays and coves.
