Mother Nature was very generous with these 115 islands scattered in the Indian Ocean and has spoiled them rotten. Undeniably, the beaches are the big attraction, and what beaches: exquisite ribbons of white sand lapped by topaz waters and backed by lush hills and big glacis boulders. And nary a crowd in sight.
Which island should you go to? Don't sweat the decision too much. Be it one of the three main islands of Praslin, La Digue or Mahe - its mountainous interior being home to Morne Seychellois National Park - or any outlying island, you'll strike gold.
With such a dreamlike setting, the Seychelles is, unsurprisingly, a choice place for a honeymoon. But there's much more to do than simply cracking open a bottle of champagne with the loved one in a luxurious hotel. Having earned a reputation as a paradigm of ecotourism, the Seychelles is a top spot to watch birds and giant tortoises in their natural habitat. And a vast living world lies just below the turquoise waters, beckoning divers of all levels. When you tire of beaches you can venture inland on jungle trails, indulge in fine dining or enjoy the sublime laid-back tempo.

It has achieved all-round socio-economic progress during the last 67 years of its Independence.

Bounded by the Great Himalayas in the north, it stretches southwards and at the Tropic of Cancer, tapers off into the Indian Ocean between the Bay of Bengal on the east and the Arabian Sea on the west.
India is a pictorial kaleidoscope of landscapes, opulent historical and royal cities, golden beaches, misty mountain retreats, colourful people, rich cultures and festivities. A trip to India is exceptional for the tourists, as this wonderland has always offered something new.

The incredible variety of Southeast Asia is evident for all to see in the diverse nation of Malaysia. From wealthy, ever-expanding metropolises to tranquil rural villages, paradisiacal beaches and dense tropical rainforests, Malaysia seeks and succeeds to be all things to all people.
Much of the beauty of Malaysia is in its diversity. Not only is Malaysia is a colourful fusion of races and cultures, but within and across East and West Malaysia are an impressive variety of microcosms ranging from the high tech of Kuala Lumpur to the rural villages of Sarawak, the granite peaks and jungles of Sabah, and the calm, powdery beaches of the Perhentian Islands. And did we mention the food? Malaysia offers one of the best and most varied gastronomical experiences in the world.
Cities such as Kuala Lumpur, Georgetown (Penang) and Malacca, are modern and thriving. However, they each manage to remain authentic and unique, thanks to the importance of local culture and traditions. In places like Penang, Kuala Lumpur, Kuching and Kota Kinabalu, nightlife is also booming with plenty of pubs, night clubs, concerts, parties and music festivals for the locals and tourists alike.
Malaysia is on the verge of something special, moving steadily towards developed nation status yet retaining its own unique identity, she is becoming more attractive to visitors each year. As you are about to discover, Malaysia is a country full of wonderful surprises.explore luxury collection
Singapore's mouthwatering food is the number one drawcard. Pull up a pew at a hawker centre, crack open a Tiger beer and immerse yourself in a munificent range of Asian delights; heavy on the flavour, light on the wallet. Want to splurge? Singapore delivers Southeast Asia's best shopping and innovative, stylish restaurants, plus a swathe of top-notch hotels. Top of the tree is Raffles, a timeless symbol of colonial opulence.
Of course, it's not all about shopping, eating and G&Ts on the veranda. Work up a sweat with outdoor activities - walking, cycling and water sports - or check out the contemporary arts scene, thriving under the government's promotion of Singapore as an arts hub. If you want a break from the urban confines, the centre of the island has sparkling reservoirs and leafy tracts of forest where all you'll hear is monkeys clattering through the boughs.

Abu DhabiThe Desert Rose
One of the seven sovereign sheikhdoms that complete the United Arab Emirates, Abu Dhabi is the region's 'cultural heart', capital and centre of government. Effortlessly contrasting modern architecture with Arabic tradition, the 'Garden City of the Gulf' is a modern metropolis on an island graced with parks, green boulevards and verdant gardens.
As Dubai's grown up, more cultured elder brother, Abu Dhabi possesses an understated chic when compared to its more notorious sibling. Here, the focus is less on pure glitz and more on true luxury - all combined with Middle East character. Culture is an important part of holidays to Abu Dhabi - the planned opening of three magnificent world-class museums on Saadiyat Island cultural district will place it firmly on the cultural map, but in the meantime, there are plenty of other options for culture vultures. And that's exactly where Abu Dhabi wants to be - a bridge between the Eastern and Western worlds. Here you can get the best of everything, from pristine beaches to world-class sporting events and a glimpse of the local, more rural culture.
Home to empty deserts, white beaches, warm waters and year-round sunshine, Abu Dhabi is an ideal holiday destination for those seeking a taste of Arabia's fine dining, culture, shopping and tradition, and all within a short distance from the bright lights of Dubai. The capital city of the United Arab Emirates, Abu Dhabi was once a small fishing village surrounding a fort and a scattering of houses, yet today has grown to become one of the world's most exclusive holiday destinations.explore luxury collection
