From free love to Facebook, hippies to hard drives, the ideological clash that is taking hold of The City by the Bay is mesmerising for global observers and utterly wonderful for tourists.
Visitors to the vibrant city can now ride the iconic yellow cable car whilst ordering frappes with their smart phones, before hopping in an Uber and wandering the alleyways of The Haight, the epicentre of the city’s hippy counterculture, teeming with chilled-out cafés and alternative bookshops. That’s without even mentioning the unmissable Golden Gate Bridge, inescapable Alcatraz or the carefully manicured Japanese Tea Garden.
Once dubbed the ‘Athens of America’ for its impressive literary culture, Boston – one of the oldest cities in America - boasts a rich history and legacy of arts, sports and education.
Home to the world-renowned Harvard University, world champion teams Red Sox and Patriots, the iconic Beacon Hill and its very own Symphony Hall, Boston has something for everyone.
Whilst the city is easy to explore on foot, a bike ride along the Charles River makes for a memorable trip (make sure to make a stop at Longfellow Bridge for an impressive view of the Boston skyline), and following the ‘Freedom Trail’ is a must-do: take the path from Boston Common to observe the 16 sites which earned revolutionary Boston its status as the birthplace of America.
In the evening, sample the city’s famous seafood at the Seaport District, where diners enjoy the local speciality of ‘sacred cod’ whilst overlooking stunning harbour views.
The City of Angels is a multi-layered shrine to generational trend setting and a beacon of California where creative dreams are given room to flourish.
A visit to Los Angeles allows travellers to bask in this unending positivity, where life affirming moments are seemingly commonplace. The city revels in its extreme forms of entertainment, whether it be treks through the Hollywood hills, festivities on Venice Beach, or outlandish cocktails along the hazy Beverly Boulevard, Los Angeles glimmers with an infectious energy.
A tropical drop in the Indian Ocean, Mauritius is a hypnotic blend of Indian, African and European influences. Famous primarily as a luxury long-haul hideaway, this idyllic island offers far more than meets the eye. Beyond the postcard-perfect beaches, find excellent mountain hiking, native forests, eclectic local cuisine, sleepy fishing communities and, below the water, the world’s third largest coral reef. Put simply, there’s nothing not to love.
The self-styled 'Pearl of the South' is the largest and most celebrated of Thailand's resort islands. Blessed with tracts of tropical rainforest and endless stretches of clean sandy beach that give way to the the warm waters of the Andaman Sea, it’s easy to see what has put Phuket firmly on the tourist map. Step away from the neon strip of Patong for authentic Thai culture and dreamy island escapes.
Tiny, tropical Tobago is somewhere to slow things right down. Said to be the inspiration behind Daniel Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe, it’s all about the beautiful bare necessities, with ancient rainforest and jaw-dropping beaches. No island was more fought over in the colonial era – the island changed hands some 32 times - making it a colourful jumble of cultural influences with fiery cuisine and buckets of soul.
Former Portuguese colony, long-standing hippie favourite and laid-back beach paradise, Goa is like no other state in India. Peppered with beautiful beaches, timeless fishing villages and white-washed colonial towns, it’s relaxed, spirited and easy to explore. Even better, Goa bends to all budgets, offering everything from secluded eco-camps to backpacker huts and boutique resorts. Wherever you stay, top off a day in the sunshine with a sizzling curry. Perfect.
