Check out our guide to the best places to go in 2018 with TUI – we’ve got it all, from short sweet city breaks and ventures off the beaten track in Montenegro, to long, lavish escapes to the Caribbean.Not just for families: 10 things you never knew about TUIIf you think TUI package holidays are all about kids and beaches, think again. The company offers a huge range of holiday options, from trips around Vietnam to five-star luxury hotels for adults only. Here’s a few things you probably didn’t know about TUI…10 holiday destinations in Spain off the beaten trackLooking at booking your 2018 holidays? Let TUI do the work with one of these beautiful, off-the-beaten-track destinations in Spain – whether you’re after a weekend break in an old town or a week on a beach, TUI have got you covered. Skiathos Town has become increasingly cool in the last decade, but despite designer boutiques and yachts lining the harbour, it’s still got that small-island feel. Restaurants are hidden under leafy trees and in between bright white walls, Greek alley cats stalk the pathways as though they own the city, and once you jump in a jeep you’ll have access to Skiathos’ secret beaches and beautiful bays. Koukenaries is the ideal spot to stay if you want to be away from the hustle and bustle – but who doesn’t want to wake up and stroll to their closest bakery for bougatsa? 1. Taghazout, Morocco Fly to: Agadir Fly to: Malta Fly to Skiathos Getting off the beaten track entirely doesn’t mean giving up creature comforts – you can find plenty of 4 and 5 star hotels in Kerala, Wifi is included and some have pools too. However, this spot is a million miles (metaphorically) from the standard beach villa and self-catering combo. You’ll spend your days cruising on Kerala’s backwaters on long boats, trying seafood cooking classes and catching a snake-boat race if you’re lucky. These take place every few months post-monsoon season. When it comes to celebrating, Kerala is known for tea and toddy (tea being the hot drink you know and love, toddy being the local alcohol produced from the sap of palm trees). 10. Podgorica, Montenegro 5. Sardinia, Italy Fly to Podgorica Thailand’s islands like Koh Tao and Koh Samui have been stealing the limelight in the past 10-15 years, which means the sandy, fisherman’s island of Phu Quoc (pronounced foo kwok) has remained a quiet coastal destination, ideal for relaxing by the pool, spending the day zipping round on a scooter or finding local fish markets. In fact, there’s even a Fish Sauce Factory you can visit on this island (but it will require a strong stomach). A better way of getting acquainted with the local produce is hitting the stalls on Sao Beach after a solid day of sunbathing. You can also break a sweat by doing one of the hiking trails in Phú Quốc National Park, which covers the majority of the northeast tip of Phu Quoc. This is also one of the best value holiday destinations of this year. Fly to Phu Quoc Fly to Malta 2. Cadiz, Spain Fly to: Alghero Just like many of Spain’s cities, Cadiz combines a cuisine of its own, small streets that snake through the Old Town and friendly locals, better known as gaditanos (Cadiz locals). If you’re not here to enjoy a few sherries in the centuries-old city centre or to weave in and out of eighteenth century churches and cathedrals, you might find what you’re looking for on El Zahara de los Atunes or Bolonia. Bolonia beach, also known as Tarifa, is a 4km golden playground for windsurfers, whereas El Zahara de los Atunes is better to suited to drinking copas of wine with the sun setting over Africa right in front of you. Fly to: Jerez Fly to Alghero When you think of Italy, you might think of the Leaning Tower of Pisa, Neapolitan pizza and Rome’s Colosseum. You might have bypassed Sardinia’s pink beaches, National Park archipelago and rugged, mountainous interior. Whilst still Italian, Sardinia is proud of its island heritage, sat next to Corsica in the middle of the Mediterranean. Flying into Alghero means you’ll be in the northwest of the country, and just a few hours from La Maddalena National Park. With seven large islands and 55 smaller islets, it’s ideal for sailing into the sunset with your friends or partner. Sardinia’s Costa Smeralda (Emerald Coast) is easy to visit by public transport if you’re staying on the mainland, too. If you’re still hankering for an Italian city afterwards, why not check out TUI’s Italy holidays? When the Azure window collapsed in March 2017, the Maltese locals worried that this might hurt tourism – it turns out they had little to fear. The Azure window is as popular as it was, but the attraction is now under water – it’s become one of the best places to dive in the Mediterranean, thanks to Malta’s clear blue waters, minimal pollution and a new neighbourhood of marine life living life on the rocks in Gozo. The dive site is already rapidly changing, as the white sharp rocks are beginning to grow a new submarine layer of life. Outside of the water, Gozo has beautiful beaches, and if you’re craving city life, Valletta (Malta’s capital) is a busy Medieval port city and another Game of Thrones filming location. Ready for your next holiday? Check out all of TUI’s destinations today. Why not get ahead of the game with one of these winter deals in Vietnam or Cape Verde? Montenegro is getting more and more of a reputation for it’s clean beaches and medieval old towns – especially as it shares a coastline with Croatia, but costs a fraction of the price. Sharing Croatia’s geography also means Montenegro has a number of vineyards (and yep, the local wine is good) and quiet beaches on Becici. TUI even offer transfers to Petrovac, the main coastal bay just south of Becici and Budva. Alternatively, you could hike around Durmitor National Park, Montenegro’s northern mountain range, and hire a cabin on the Black Lake. center_img Taghazout is a hippie, 60’s beach town that’s never lost its bohemian edge – but now, it’s one of the most popular surf destinations in Morocco and Africa. Anchor Point and Boiler’s Break are a cut above your normal swells, but if you’re not quite brave enough for the board yet there are plenty of surf schools on the beach in Taghazout. And you prefer dry land, brunch spots like Cafe Mouja welcome you in for smoothies, brunch and epic ocean views, or you could head to one of the beachfront yoga classes for a sunset vinyasa. You could even hunt out the Game of Thrones filming locations too. Fly to Cancún 4. Gozo, Malta Fly to: Venice There’s a lot to be said for exiting Cancun’s airport and hopping in a transfer to hotfoot it to Tulum. Home of the mystical Mayan ruins, beachfront taquerias and all-night jungle parties, this is somewhere you should be making a beeline for if you like a touch of history, Caribbean beaches and fish tacos. The town of Tulum has a number of romantic hotels, hipster bars and coffee shops, whereas the beach is a further 10 minutes east. This is where you’ll find cenotes (a cave diver’s dream!), white sand and palm-fringed beach bars and boutiques.

Skiathos, Greece Fly to: Skiathos Fly to: Cancun Fly to Jerez de la Frontera 7. Murano, Italy Fly to Kerala 6. Tulum, Mexico 9. Kerala, India In partnership with TUI Fly to: Podgorica Fly to: Kerala Fly to Agadir Venice will blow you away, but the smaller islands just outside of the city will charm you (and they’re much quieter). Murano used to be Venice’s glass-making island, where all the glass-makers were forced to live to protect their trade. Fortunately, the glass-makers now have the freedom to roam, but it’s still common to weave in and out of the shops to see how they make ornate Champagne flutes and intricate pieces of jewellery. Likewise, Burano, Murano’s neighbouring island, is known for lace-making and brightly coloured canal facing houses – this trip’s a dreamy one for creatives types. Fly to Venice 3.

first_img Live Out Your Westworld Dreams at Casteel Creek Retreat The three upper floors of Fjord House are private and home to the financial firm Kirk Kapital, whose owners are direct descendants of the founder of LEGO (suddenly the stacked brick construction makes sense, doesn’t it?). These office spaces were also designed around the circle. Rooms are round and custom circular light fixtures and furnishings were specially created by Eliasson. Thanks to the arch cutouts, these spaces are flooded with light from all sides, creating bright, beautiful offices for the financial firm. It all makes for a visually stunning piece of architecture that seems straight out of the future. And while it may be home to a business, we still think Fjordenhus is the perfect spot for a blade runner looking to hide out. This All-Black Cabin is Like a Pair of Binoculars Taking in the Canadian Wilderness Every now and then, a piece of architecture seems so outlandish, so futuristic, you are positive it is a leftover set from some sci-fi adventure flick. Frank Lloyd Wright’s Ennis House was so advanced when it was designed back in 1924 that Ridley Scott thought it was the perfect spot for a 1980s movie set in the year 2019. While Ennis House was home to Rick Deckard in the original Blade Runner, we think Fjordenhus would have made the perfect hideout for him in Blade Runner 2049.Fjordenhus, or Fjord House, is a series of tubes (no really) rising out of the harbor of Vejle, Denmark. The building sits at just over 91 feet in height and is accessed via a real-life drawbridge. Comprised of four circular structures that are interconnected, Fjord House was built from 970,000 multi-colored bricks. In all, 15 different tones of unglazed brick were used, creating a building that, from the outside, seems to change color throughout the day.Once you cross the drawbridge into Fjord House, you are greeted with a public art gallery in a grand, open-air vestibule. The work of architect and artist Olafur Eliasson, the pieces are intended to be a play on the changing colors and ephemeral feel of water and light. Also on the main floor are two viewing platforms just above the water that are intended to be art installations in their own right.Throughout the building, the circle is king. While some walls are circular due to the shape of the building, in other areas, parts of the circles were cut away to create concave walls that swoop down into the water below. Stunning circular staircases rise to the upper floors and wrap around circular vestibules which look down to the water. Most dramatically, large arches were cut into the exterior walls, revealing the different (again, circular) floors of the building and allowing large windows to be put in. 1 of 4 This Little House in Washington Has Big Personality center_img For Sale: A Treehouse in the Suburbs Designed by John Lautner Editors’ Recommendations Previous Next Shark House’s Dramatic Angles Have Serious Bite last_img
