With summer looming and your Instagram feed slowly filling up with images of your friends and family roaming enviable locations, now is the time to feed your wanderlust and book a deserved trip to one of 2017’s must-visit destinations. Make this your year for adventure by venturing somewhere far-flung – from the South American gem to the Japanese city that’s giving Tokyo a run for its money.
Cape Town, South Africa
Cape Town has always been up there as a must-visit destination, with its unique blend of mountains, culturally-rich city, unspoilt beaches, sprawling vineyards and laid-back attitude. It’s starting to gain a real reputation for its art and design too, with 2017 seeing the new Zeitz Museum of Contemporary African Art opening up at the V&A Waterfront. Go in February for the best weather and stay at POD, a boutique hotel on the edge of the vibrant Camps Bay.
