A cultural adventure in Canada’s most vibrant cities is the ideal last-minute getaway.  With well-connected travel links, fantastic hotels and all the amenities you could ask for, Canada’s cities are perfect for a low-stress holiday. You can simply hop on the plane and go.

Explore the likes of Quebec, Montreal and Toronto, or why not combine all three in a multi-city Canadian tour? If you’re feeling more adventurous, you could even head out into the wild on a self-drive tour of Niagara Falls, Lake Louise, the Banff Natural Park and many other scenic treasures.


If you’re looking for a week or so of all-out relaxation, along with some truly excellent food, Malaysia is the destination for you. A chilled-out Malaysian break sunbathing on pristine white sands, snorkelling in crystal clear waters and island hopping could be just what you need.

Malaysia is also a land of rich cultural heritage, with countless temples, museums and other treasures to explore.

And then there’s the food. Seriously, you haven’t lived until you’ve tried it. Malaysia is famous for its ridiculously delicious street food, from the melting beef rendang to the comforting laksa. And of course, there’s the moreish national dish of Nasi Lemak. The Malaysian cuisine has exceptional seafood, incredible fruits and vegetables and just enough spice to leave your tongue tingling.
