It’s that time of year when those travel plans start to take shape, as we see out the rest of winter in the UK and look forward to the next adventure. Whatever your travel plans this year – city or break or far flung beach getaway – start with the must-visit destinations in 2018.
New Orleans, USA
Thirteen years after Hurricane Katrina devastated this city in Louisiana, New Orleans celebrates its 300th anniversary in 2018. One of the most unique cities in the U.S., New Orleans has been a melting pot of French, Creole, African-American and Caribbean culture (amongst others) for centuries, and has become famous for its food, jazz, colonial architecture and seemingly never-ending party atmosphere. Stay at the Catahoula, a 35-room boutique hotel in a renovated 1845 Creole townhouse where the rooms are contemporary and Peruvian influences are found throughout (don’t miss the hotel’s famous Piscobar).
