From relaxing on a postcard-perfect beach to soaking up the nightlife buzz, and from diving with colourful marine life to tucking into tasty beach barbecues, Jamaica really does have something for everyone.

Visitors can find soaring skyscrapers in Abu Dhabi, then move onwards to lounge on a beach in Bahrain...

Spend a little time in Japan and you’ll soon start thinking “why can’t we do things this way at home?”

The trains run with military precision, there isn’t a scrap of litter to be seen, and simple activities such as bathing and drinking tea have been elevated to high culture.

Japan is an enormously varied and diverse country, and the contrast in geography from one end of the country to the next is quite staggering. Comprising som...

Incredible scenery, extraordinary wildlife viewing opportunities and a friendly culture means there are endless reasons to visit Botswana.

From December to March, the country is at the height of the Green Season when the temperature is high, plant life flourishes and many species give birth. The water recedes on the flood plains and more of the land can be explored on foot or in a game vehicle.

In April the inundation begins, tr...
