Kathmandu, Nepal: For old world magic

Ignite your senses in Kathmandu. Marvel at ancient palaces, feast on a steaming bowl of Thakali daal bhaat and inhale the aromatic wafts of incense - all in the Nepalese capital.

History buffs will be in their element in this ancient city, with swathes of exciting stories from days gone by to discover. And even if you’re here for Nepal’s natural wonders, it’s the perfect springboard for exploring the rest of this spectacular country.

Spend a day ambling through the old city, the UNESCO-listed heart of Kathmandu. Admire the architectural beauty of Durbar Square – take pictures outside the beautiful royal palace and wander through photogenic courtyards. Venture out of the centre and climb more than 400 steps to the top of Swayambhunath Stupa. The trek will be worth the sweeping vistas you’ll enjoy of the lush valley below.

Head across the Bagmati River to discover more heritage in Patan. Make for the Golden Temple (Kwa Bahal) to marvel at its 15th-century architecture. Notice the intricate sculpted detailing of the walls and gilded doors and be mesmerised by the elegant design of its tranquil courtyards.

Chennai, India: For eclectic architecture

There’s something intoxicating about Chennai. Perched on the Bay of Bengal in eastern India, this city is the bustling transport hub of the south. But scratch its surface and you’ll discover a goldmine of cultural gems.

Discover a patchwork of architecture in Chennai, evidencing its rich and diverse history. First stop, the Kapaleeshwarar Temple. Wander around this rebuilt 16th-century wonder (the original was destroyed) and admire its colourful design. Juxtapose this with a trip to San Thome Cathedral, a British-built 19th-century church – look out for the relic marking what’s thought to be the final resting place of St Thomas the Apostle. Trace more history at 17th-century Fort St George. Learn about Chennai’s roots at the onsite museum and catch a glimpse of St Mary's Church, the oldest surviving British church in India.

Begin your Sri Lankan adventure in its capital, Colombo. This welcoming ocean city is the perfect introduction to a fantastically charming country.

Nestled next to the Indian Ocean, Colombo has a bounty of fresh seafood to enjoy. After a day soaking up the sun on the city’s urban beach, savour spicy crab curry and indulge in a platter of grilled tiger prawns at one of the many ocean-side restaurants. Tuck in while you enjoy beautiful views of the glittering waters.

While you’re in the area, take the opportunity to try the mouth-watering street food from one of the vendors peppered along Galle Face Green, the bustling urban park neighbouring the beach. Let the aromatic scent of shrimp fritters, flavour-packed samosas and spicy lentil cakes tempt you.
