Our Top 8 Dream Cities
We all have our own favourite hot spots to visit in the world.
Shamil, one of our well-travelled colleagues, lists his Top 8 dream cities:
1. Shanghai - China
With skyscrapers even New York City would envy, the financial and economic hub of China is where East meets West in a dazzle. Setting the pace for the rest of the world, Shanghai claims to be the ‘world’s best city.’ The famous ‘Nanjing Road’ is just one of the many places to eat, drink, entertain and shop in style! Navigating through the maze of travel insurance can be daunting; especially if you wish to include every known risk!
2. Buenos Aires - Argentina
Ever dreamt of learning the Tango? This cosmopolitan city, also known as the ‘Paris of the South’ is brimming with culture, European architecture and a thriving fashion industry, South America’s heartbeat! Definitely a destination to cherish!
3. Sydney - Australia
Sydney is a diverse Australian city with a proper brew of European and Asian influences. With over 340 sunny days in a year, it’s no wonder the ‘Pearl of the Pacific’ is such a popular destination to visit. Whether you are purchasing Aboriginal art or taking in the jaw-dropping views of Sydney Harbour, you are sure to be enthused and captivated!
4. Cape Town - South Africa
One of the most multi-cultural cities of the world, you can enjoy the gorgeous beaches, an imperious mountain range including the world famous Table Mountain and award-winning vineyards in Cape Town, South Africa’s ‘must visit’ city. A jewel in the Rainbow Nation’s crown.
5. Rio de Janeiro - Brazil
Whether it’s a stroll on the Copacabana beach or a visit to see the statue of Christ the Redeemer, the charm of Rio and the samba beat vibrate the senses, luring visitors from all over the world.
6. Las Vegas - USA
‘America’s playground’ is one of the most spectacular places to visit. Whether it’s a world-class show, a flutter you might fancy at one of the world famous casinos or to party till dawn, Las Vegas will not disappoint. Take an extra day to explore the Grand Canyon and make that dream come true!
7. Rome - Italy
‘Dramatic’ and ‘epic’ are words that spring to mind when thinking of Rome. The Colosseum, Vatican City and Trevi Fountain are some of the monumental landmarks of a city that acts and feels like an ‘open-air museum’. Soak up the history of culture - from early civilisation right through the Renaissance. Truly magnificent!
8. Barcelona - Spain
Spain’s second largest city and the capital of Catalonia, Barcelona is one of the Mediterranean’s prettiest ports. The city has many great museums, theatres, Gothic architecture, restaurants and a throbbing night life. A visit to the ‘Camp Nou’ is a must, whether you are a football fan or not - demonstrable passion at its best!
