Germany’s capital has a lot to celebrate in 2024 – not only is the city hosting the Euros, it’s also commemorating the 35th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, which once divided the East and West.

On April 8 2024, a total solar eclipse will cross North America, passing over Mexico, USA and Canada. Twenty years’ worth of climate data indicates that Mexico will offer the clearest skies for the event, with Texas the likely runner-up. What makes this event so special? The next one won’t happen until 2044.

The Marquesas Islands

If your goal in 2024 is to get away from it all, few places are more remote than the Marquesas Islands. The nearest continental landmass to these far-flung volcanic isles is Mexico – a staggering 4,800 km (3,000 miles) away. Dramatic scenery, wild horses and moss-covered tiki statues await on land, while a world of underwater wonders thrives offshore, with manta rays and melon-headed whales representing a mere fraction of the archipelago’s superb biodiversity.

Not only is Sweden hosting the Eurovision Song Contest in 2024, its cooler climes are looking more and more appealing. As record-breaking temperatures cause heatwaves world-wide, why spend the summer sweltering when you could be cooling off in one of Sweden's crystal clear lakes? Plus, a summer in Sweden means a summer under the magical midnight sun.

Poznań, Poland

Somewhat of a hidden gem, Poznań is the capital and largest city in Poland's Wielkopolska region. The Old Market Square is the heart of the city’s charming Old Town, surrounded by townhouses with beautiful façades whose ground floors are mainly filled with bustling restaurants and cafés.

This soulful Caribbean island ticks every box for the experiential traveller – unique culture, vibrant cuisine, welcoming locals and an abundance of natural wonders. From exploring the flavours of the Blue Mountains where you’ll find some of the world’s best coffee to celebrating reggae on its home turf at Montego Bay’s Sumfest, there are plenty of unforgettable experiences to be had.

Seoul, South Korea

If there’s a new trend in the global beauty and skincare world, chances are it started in South Korea. Those interested in trying out the very best in high-tech skincare and beauty should head to Seoul for a shopping experience like no other. Though relentlessly modern, Seoul also retains an impressive amount of history, boasting no fewer than five ancient dynastic palaces as well as the beautiful traditional houses of Bukchon Hanok Village.

Hosting a mind-boggling array of monuments, Egypt is a historical destination on the grandest scale. The towering Pyramids of Giza and hieroglyphic-rich tombs of the Valley of the Kings may be the country’s main calling card, but there is far more to discover here than ancient treasures. Think natural hot springs, star-strewn skies, sandy beaches and rainbow reefs.
