This month, Emi­rates is dou­bling the num­ber of flights to Bali, mean­ing there’s dou­ble the chance for you to fly to this par­adise is­land. Whether you’re look­ing to re­lax, party, sight­see or browse the hun­dreds of bou­tiques – Bali has it all.


Fly Dubai have in­creased their flights to this African des­ti­na­tion in the last few months. From Zanz­ibar’s beaches to the heights of Kil­i­man­jaro, this place has it all, and shop­pers can pick up gor­geous hand­made jew­ellery and clothes in the mar­kets of Zanz­ibar.


For­get Tokyo, Seoul is fast be­com­ing the fash­ion hub of the east. Chanel’s Made­moi­selle Privé ex­hi­bi­tion is in the city un­til July 19, and there so many other rea­sons to visit. You’ll find ev­ery­thing from lo­cal fash­ion brands to flag­ship stores from the likes of Louis Vuit­ton, Miu Miu and Prada. Ev­ery­one is Seoul is so stylish – ex­pect to get out­fit in­spi­ra­tion from just walk­ing the streets.


Back in late 2015 Cuba and the US re-es­tab­lished their diplo­matic re­la­tions, mean­ing Amer­i­cans can to travel to the coun­try for the first time since 1958. That might be scaled back un­der the Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion (new rules are to be drawn up in July), but it has al­ready meant new ho­tels, restau­rants, shops and tourist at­trac­tions pop­ping up in the city. The mes­sage is still: Go there soon.


This sum­mer, fash­ion house Yves Saint Lau­rent opens a mu­seum in the Mor­ro­can city – the late de­signer took much of his in­spi­ra­tion from the city, and the new mu­seum will house a per­ma­nent ex­hi­bi­tion of some of his de­signs. It’s a favourite with celebri­ties with the likes of Vic­to­ria and David Beck­ham and John Leg­end and Chrissy Tiegen hol­i­day­ing there this year.


Cana­di­ans cel­e­brate the 150th an­niver­sary of their in­de­pen­dence this year, mean­ing there is free ad­mis­sion to Na­tional Parks all year. There are also so many stylish cities to visit – head to Van­cou­ver for laid-back shop­ping, Toronto for de­signer brand heaven, or Mon­treal for Canada-meets-Europe vibe.


Ear­lier this year we in­tro­duced you to hygge – Den­mark’s win­ter co­zi­ness – but this sum­mer, the coun­try re­ally comes alive. Aarhus was named the cul­ture cap­i­tal of Europe for 2017 and is per­fect for strolling around streets, visit­ing art gal­leries and vin­tage shop­ping.
