1. Sanya

Known as the “Hawaii of China,” Sanya is a coastal city at the southern tip of Hainan Island that’s become a favorite for in-the-know travelers. The tropical climate is warm all year long, so it’s a great place to go when you want to escape the frigid temperatures of winter.

Perth is one of those magical places where natural wonders blend seamlessly with a thoroughly modern skyline. Revel in the views of both from your perch above Elizabeth Quay in the infinity pool at The Ritz-Carlton, Perth.

5. Kyoto

Perhaps no city in Japan is more steeped in tradition than Kyoto. Although it’s known as “The City of the Thousand Temples,” the number is actually closer to 1,600 — and that doesn’t include the imperial palaces and the breathtaking gates. Exploring the city as the sun goes down only adds to the magic.

6. Bangalore

Bangalore may be growing, but amid the traffic and high rises you’ll find 197-acre Cubbon Park in the center of town. Built by the British in the late 1800s, the park is surrounded by historical, neoclassical buildings and is full of Banyan trees and bamboo groves, making it an ideal location to catch a sunset.
