The 12 Luxury Destinations are:
1. Ashford Castle - Ireland
Overlooking Lough Corrib (lake), on 350 acres of parkland, this high-end hotel occupies a 13th-century castle, 15 km from Headford town centre and 42 km from central Galway. Opulent, gilded rooms come with antique rosewood furniture. There's a palatial restaurant serving upscale Irish cuisine, as well as a low-key bistro and a medieval-style pub. Afternoon tea is served in a Victorian-era drawing room.
2. Bayon Temples - Cambodia
At the heart of Angkor Thom is the 12th century Bayon, the mesmerising if slightly mind-bending state temple of Jayavarman VII. It epitomises the creative genius and inflated ego of Cambodia’s most celebrated king. Its 54 gothic towers are famously decorated with 216 gargantuan smiling faces of Avalokiteshvara that bear more than a passing resemblance to the great king himself.
Unique, even among its cherished contemporaries, the architectural audacity was a definitive political statement about the change from Hinduism to Mahayana Buddhism. Known as the 'face temple' thanks to its iconic visages, these huge heads glare down from every angle, exuding power and control with a hint of humanity. This was precisely the blend required to hold sway over such a vast empire, ensuring the disparate and far-flung population yielded to his magnanimous will.
3. Cappadocia - Turkey
Lying in south central Turkey, the moonscaped region of Cappadocia, southeast of Ankara, is most famous for unique geological features called fairy chimneys. The large, cone-like formations were created over time by erosion of the relatively soft volcanic ash around them. Past cultures have dug into them to create dwellings, castles (like Uchisar) and even entire underground cities like Kaymakli and Derinkuyu, used as hiding places by early Christians. Nearby Kayseri is the gateway to the area.
4. Farafra White Desert - Egypt
The chalk-white landscape is strewn with alien shapes, boulders of brilliant white which thrust up from the surface of the desert, intensified by the clear light of noon, shimmering gold at sunset or blackened and shrunken in a cloud-filled sky. Many of the formations are given descriptive names – sculpted by the harsh desert winds into weird shapes which constantly change over time..
In the remote past, the White Desert was a sea-bed, the sedimentary layers of rock formed by marine fauna when the ocean dried up. Later a habitat for many roaming herds of elephant, giraffe, gazelle and other animals, the desert would have been a savannah with lush green areas and lakes full of fish, an ideal hunting ground for pre-historic man. The landscape we see today was formed by the plateau breaking down, leaving harder rock shapes standing while the softer parts are eroded away by wind and sand. In some parts the chalk surface still has the appearance of delicate wind-ruffled waves on water. A night under the stars in the White Desert is an experience never forgotten. As the sky turns pink then deepest fiery orange, the rock-shapes fade and silence is all around.
5. Lavender Fields - Provincial France
The region in southern France is definitely a big attraction in the country. Writers, painters and tourists have been mesmerised with this place for ages. The province on the Mediterranean Sea coast has a hypnotic effect indeed. Besides the lovely Côte d’Azur and pleasures of the beaches, Provence is known for the quiet, but beautiful villages. The travellers can find a retreat in L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, Fontaine de Vaucluse, Les Stes-Maries-de-la-Mer, where amazing nature blends with cultural heritage, which also includes the French cuisine.
Food tourists will be pleased not only with food, but beverages, as well. Vineyards like Châteauneuf-du-Pape should be visited for that matter. And, of course, the lavender fields. The best time to see the violet coloured fields is during summer, when these fragrant plants are in bloom.
Choose from many fields: Abbaye Notre-Dame de Sénanque, Plateau de Valensole are a good choices. You can plan a lavender tour, which will provide you with the amazing views of colourful fields, châteaus and fresh lavender products.
6. Liwa Red Desert - Abu Dhabi
The sand is soft, fine, multicoloured hues of khaki and orange, and it rolls in windswept hills hundreds of feet high as far as the eye can see, unbroken by tree or shrub or the rarest of clouds. Driving off-road into its vastness is to experience that penetrating silence, whether it’s for an hour or a night. The night sky erupts with stars, sparkling and falling, the Milky Way like a thick swirl of tapioca, and time evaporates.
7. Moorea - Bora Bora - Tahiti
Tahiti – Moorea – Bora Bora – island names that evoke a wonderful state of mind, seducing honeymooners, romantics, adventurers, and vacationers looking for escape.
Here, around these South Seas isles, a romantic sunset sea sends giant curls of turquoise breaking onto the colourful reefs that protect the tranquil lagoons of warm, bright-emerald waters and white coral-sand beaches.
8. Phong Nha Ke Bang Caves - Vietnam
Phong Nha-Ke Bàng National Park is a protected area in north-central Vietnam bordering the Hin Namno Reserve in Laos. Characterised by mountains, tropical forests and underground rivers, it’s known for its ancient limestone karsts and vast network of caves. These include the huge Son Doòng cave and Phong Nha cave, which is big enough for boats. The area’s rich wildlife includes tigers, black bears and elephants.
9. Plitvice Lake - Croatia
Plitvice Lakes National Park is a 295-sq.-km forest reserve in central Croatia. It's known for a chain of 16 terraced lakes, joined by waterfalls, that extend into a limestone canyon. Walkways and hiking trails wind around and across the water, and a Lake Kozjak ferry links the upper and lower lakes. The latter are the site of Veliki Slap, a 78m-high waterfall.
10. Tulum - Mexico
Tulum is the largest community in the municipality of Tulum, Quintana Roo, Mexico. It is located on the Caribbean coast of the state, near the site of the archaeological ruins of Tulum. Tulum holds the honour of being the most picturesque archaeological site in the Riviera Maya and the only one to have been built overlooking the ocean. A visit here offers spectacular views of the Riviera Maya beaches, Caribbean Sea and surrounding coastal region.
Tulum was an ancient Mayan fortress city that rose to power toward the end of the Classic period. The most iconic of its structures, the Castillo, is perched on the edge of a cliff overlooking the clear turquoise blue waters of the Caribbean. The cliff-top Castillo, with its beachfront location and lush green landscape, is the image most often associated with the Mayan Riviera.
11. Uyuni Salt Flats - Bolivia
Salar de Uyuni, amid the Andes in southwest Bolivia, is the world’s largest salt flat. It’s the legacy of a prehistoric lake that went dry, leaving behind a desertlike, nearly 11,000-sq.-km. landscape of bright-white salt, rock formations and cacti-studded islands. Its otherworldly expanse can be observed from central Incahuasi Island. Though wildlife is rare in this unique ecosystem, it harbours many pink flamingos.
12. Zanzibar Beach - Zanzibar
Made famous for its spices and the slave trade of the 19th century, Zanzibar Island is much more than a stopping point on an itinerary, and can be seen as a destination in itself. What the island offers is a unique combination of outstanding beaches, along its eastern edge, interesting activities, such as visiting a working spice farm, and the cultural delights of Stone Town, with Arabian fortresses and minarets. With its location, barrier reef and outstanding beaches Zanzibar can offer all of the attractions that most crave such as scuba diving, glorious beaches, fresh seafood and much more. For those that are a little restless there is a small forest in the interior called Jozani that has indigenous red colobus monkeys, and the spice tours in one of the small farms just outside Zanzibar Town are a fascinating glimpse into why this island has become so famous.
