3 Irresistible Multi-City Holidays
More and more, travellers are choosing to visit numerous destinations on holiday. Whether it’s combining a beach resort with a city stay or joining an escorted tour, we want to get more out of the places we go.
Multi-city holidays offer variety, and often, exceptional value, too. Best of all, creating a bespoke getaway makes for the most satisfying travel experience. Looking for ideas? Check out these three amazing multi-city holidays we’re swooning over ourselves.
Lima & Cuzco
Don’t just spend a day in Lima on your way to adventure elsewhere. The capital is a solid stand-alone destination offering plenty, be it centuries of history, big-city energy, and a sophistication that might surprise you. Galleries brim with both edgy and classic art, stylish new eateries open almost weekly and packed nightclubs blast danceable beats well into the sweaty night. Like any true great city, it’s as cosmopolitan as it is gritty, and when the fog dissipates, it’s even downright pretty.
Sip Lima slowly with a 4-night stay at a 5-star hotel, complete with luxurious rooftop terrace views, coffee tastings, and an escorted bicycle tour through its colourful neighbourhoods. Get your urban fill before exploring Peru’s many other attractions, like the Nazca Lines, the Paracas geoglyphs or the famous mountaintop village of the Incas.
Lima isn’t your gateway to Machu Picchu, Cuzco is. Acclimate to the altitude in style, with a 4-night stay in a reborn 16th-century mansion, strolling the narrow cobbled streets of South America’s oldest continuously inhabited city. Then, skip the multi-day hike to Machu Picchu and hop aboard a scenic train instead. With your Tailor-Made Holiday, the entrance fee and train ticket are included!
Hanoi & Da Nang
There are few places in the world adored by nearly everyone who’s been, and Vietnam is one of them. If you are an incessant foodie in search of the perfect meal, you’ll likely find it here. If you are a beach bum, a nature nut or history buff, you’re in for a treat. Vietnam is a multi-faceted destination unafraid to be everything to everyone, and Hanoi is the perfect place to begin savouring its many treasures.
The historic Old Town is as busy as it should be, save for peaceful Hoan Kiem Lake at its centre. Here, our Tailor-Made Holiday spoils you with an immersive 4-night stay in a modern hotel with all the amenities, like a trendy rooftop terrace and pool for sweeping city views. Get to know Hanoi on a local-led walking tour, exploring its top sites and hidden back streets, where often the tastiest meals are found.
Next up, a spectacular 2-night cruise of picture-perfect Ha Long Bay, meals, sightseeing, kayaking, and more, included. Then head south to Da Nang, with Hue and Hoi An within easy reach. Bask at your beachfront resort, retreat to its luxurious spa or learn the art of silk lantern-making on a fun half-day tour. Your 6-night stay offers plenty of time to explore both Hoi An and Hue. Hoi An for its signature dish (Cao Lau) and speedy tailors, and Hue for its glorious imperial past and its gorgeous setting on the Perfume River. Breathe it in!
Auckland & Rotorua
New Zealand’s South Island may get more press but let’s be honest, as striking as it is, it isn’t much different from our very own Rocky Mountains. Do you know what is? The less-visited North Island. If you’re looking for access to authentic Polynesian culture, bubbling hot springs and the country’s very best beaches, you won’t find them in the beautiful south. Just-as-pretty North Island is where you want to be.
Begin in Auckland with a stay at a designer hotel with a charming harbour view. The contemporary M Social Auckland Hotel is within easy walking distance to the city’s many sights. Dine at the impressive Beast & Butterflies and stroll the scenic harbourfront just steps away. Pack for a full-day tour of the Waitomo Caves and its colony of glow worms and the whimsical Hobbiton Movie Set. Head north for the stunning beaches in the Bay of Islands or south to Rotorua, the capital of Māori culture.
On the shimmering shores of Lake Rotorua, indulge in a luxurious retreat, soaking in soothing mineral springs. Live local tradition at The Polynesian Spa, visit Wai-O-Tapu (Sacred Waters), shooting geysers and bubbling mud pools. Look for shooting stars on Mt Ngongotaha and skip through a canopy of 100-year-old dramatically-lit redwoods after dark. Magic is real here. Kia Ora!
