With its pristine waters and white sandy beaches, Fiji is an ideal destination for those wanting to soak up some sunshine in a balmy, tropical location. But there’s a whole lot more to this Pacific Island than just coconuts and cocktails. Read this blog for 10 Fun Facts About Fiji.
2014 has raced by for me, but the end of another year is always a good time to reflect on the last twelve months. To end 2014 here are some of my favourite images taken by staff and volunteers in our destinations over the past year.
Samantha Corbett works in our Global Information Office in Cape Town. In this blog she encourages you to get off the beaten track in her beloved city and explore some of Cape Town’s lesser known, but equally worthwhile attractions.

Part 2 of our Vietnam special and we are heading to the tropical South. Palm-fringed beaches, mad monks and Saharan-like sand dunes – this country is full of surprises!
Vietnam offers the keen traveller an intoxicating mix of tantalising cuisine, spectacular scenery and enchanting culture. In this blog, I share my top things to do in North Vietnam.
From the lantern-lit streets of chilled-out Chengdu to the intense crowds and pace of life in the capital, China really does blow you away. Some of my most memorable experiences ended up involving traditional Chinese food and drink in some way. In this blog, I’m going to share some of my favourites.
In my opinion, there is no best time to visit Thailand. Whilst some remote destinations may be difficult to access during the rainy season, you shouldn’t let the weather put you off - there is always something going on somewhere! So, rather than wondering whether you should go at all, look at it more as where you should go when. I’ve provided some of my suggestions for each month of the year to help you decide.
