In the cooler winter months the labyrinthine of Venice streets and grand piazzas of Venice retain their charm without the summer crowds.
Activity: A visit to Venice in February means Carnival. An incredible spectacle when locals dress up in in their renaissance costumes, promenading the streets before heading on to a festival or private masquerade ball.
Singapore offers an ‘all year round’ destination and this year you can celebrate Chinese New Year in Asia’s chicest city, where modern architecture defies engineering and Michelin-star street food sets you back £1.
Activity: Take a break from city life to visit Gardens by the Bay, wander through a cloud forest and flower dome in the late afternoon and watch the light show at Supertree grove once the sun sets.
