Still focusing on Europe, it’s also a magical time to travel to Vienna to soak up the romance and culture of the city. It’s home to some of the most stunning palaces, with great museums filled with classical and modern art. There’s a lively café scene and shoppers will find top brands plus lots of independent stores. Park Hyatt Vienna has a central location ideal for seeing everything Viennese.



London is a great place to travel to in spring, as the trees turn green and the flowers bloom. The city is packed full of parks and it’s such a great place to get out and explore. The Bulgari Hotel London, right on the edge of Hyde Park, is the best place to start and end a day of strolling around. It has a great spa too.



With a visa no longer needed for Emiratis to visit Ireland, Dublin has never been easier to travel to. There is so much to discover both in the city and around the country, so take some time to explore. Those who love a touch of luxury teamed with history can stay at The Merrion – it’s the perfect hotel at which to indulge in both.



There is a buzz of interest around Luang Prabang in Laos with the stunning Rosewood Luang Prabang opening there (a secluded jungle style property in the heart of the city). Relax in your villa or get out and soak up the culture. But go now before it becomes too popular.
