Planning a holiday is a bit of a minefield with so many choices to make to ensure the perfect break. Iconic sights or beaches and bars? Somewhere you’ve been to every year since you were five or somewhere new? Best in Travel falls into the latter category for travelling is all about new experiences. If, like us, you’re looking for a little more from your annual leave, allow us to suggest India – one of the oldest civilisations in the world with a kaleidoscopic variety and rich cultural heritage. As the seventh largest country in the world, India stands apart from the rest of Asia, marked off as it is by mountains and the sea, which give the country a distinct geographical entity. Bounded by the Great Himalayas in the north, it stretches southwards and at the Tropic of Cancer, tapers off into the Indian Ocean between the Bay of Bengal on the east and the Arabian Sea on the west. Explore, enjoy – and don’t forget to send us a postcard…

Modern skyscrapers sit alongside historical sites in Hong Kong, showing what happens when the Western world successfully collides with the Orient. For the urbanite, there’s hip hotels, top-notch dining, chic bars and modern shopping malls crammed with delights. Yet conversely the city can also be appreciated as much by travellers in search of authenticity, as by marathon shoppers. In Hong Kong you can join in dawn taichi, dance to the drumbeat of a dragon boat, catch Chinese opera in a bamboo theatre and take a ride on a historic double-decker tram, before gazing out at the glorious harbour. Nature lovers aren’t neglected either: over 70 per cent of Hong Kong is mountains, while nature reserves and the outlying islands (offering beautiful walks and hike trails) are never far away. Spend even the smallest amount of time in Hong Kong – a city worth stopping in rather than using just as a transit hub – and you’ll quickly discover that you have a city break of epic proportions.

The Palm is arguably the most audacious of all of Dubai’s breathtaking projects. This palm-shaped man made island is often referred to as the eighth wonder of the world owing to the fact that it can be seen from space. Palm Jumeirah is home to some of Dubai's most luxurious resorts, including Atlantis The Palm, Jumeirah Zabeel Saray, the One&Only The Palm and many more. It is also packed with top notch dining options worth visiting such as Nobu and 101 Dining Lounge even if you’re not staying at one of the many resorts. The Palm is well developed – with roads, tunnels and public transport. So you can easily access the various hotels, restaurants and attractions on the island. You can also hop aboard the Palm Monorail that runs to Atlantis that sits at the helm.
