Southern Spain has many eye-candies, but among the best would be the Pueblos Blancos route, a popular itinerary among visitors and locals alike that covers Andalusia’s most charming white villages. From Ronda’s stunning bridge to Arco’s narrow, winding streets and breathtaking viewpoint, this region is unsurprisingly top of our bucket list.
Ultramodern stunning buildings , artificial islands, record-breaking architecture and luxury shopping meet in Dubai, set between the desert and the Persian Gulf. Here, it is possible to ride over the sand dunes, lounge on the beach and watch the World’s most fascinating water jet display – in the same day.

Sometimes overshadowed by neighbours Mallorca and Ibiza, Menorca actually has more beaches and hidden coves than any other of the Balearic islands – and far more deserted, at that.
