Sri Lanka is the ideal destination for a travelling holiday; small enough to be manageable, diverse enough to make all that moving around rewarding. For many, the country conjures up images of golden sand or dense overgrown jungle. But the island lays claim to other natural treasures; sprawling national parks home to rare beasts and rolling hills planted with acre upon acre of tea.⁠

.⁠
We spent over a year scouring the island-nation, picking the brains of locals and travellers to discover the grit in the oyster, the pearl in the shell. ⁠

Despite Chad being one of Africa’s largest countries, many people would struggle to place it on a map. While media coverage tends to focus on the area’s political instability and poverty, peer beyond the headlines and you'll discover that Chad is home to some of the world’s most extreme landscapes, rife with jaw-dropping oases and bountiful wildlife. ⁠

Spend days trekking through the Sahara where otherworldly environments stretch further than the eye can see, visit Lake Chad or go on safari in Zakouma National Park. Visit in March, when animals congregate around watering holes; colourful birds swoop down for a drink and hippos paddle around to cool off.⁠

The jagged peaks of the Dolomites (pronounced doh-loh-mee-tee in Italian) have emerged as the secret winter hotspot for insiders looking to avoid crowded pistes, but those even more clued up know that this region is a prime destination even after the snow has melted and the goggle tans have faded.⁠

If you thought top-quality accommodation and sustainability were mutually exclusive, think again. In all corners of the globe, hotels are offering luxurious digs, superb service and first-rate facilities alongside some pretty impressive green credentials.⁠

Join our Print Editor-in-Chief @offshoots as she checks in at @saltresorts for Vol. 29. "My destination is SALT of Palmar, a new breed of eco-minded hotel that promises a “local, sustainable and meaningful” experience on the lesser-developed east coast, with food providing one of several routes into the island’s native culture."⁠

Avoriaz’s enviable location smack-bang in the middle of the Portes du Soleil area means it’s extremely well-connected, offering access to over 650km of marked pistes spanning 13 resorts. ⁠
.⁠
The village is purpose-built and charmingly old-fashioned; you won’t see any cars here, nor will you find many hotels, restaurants or bars. But Morzine is only a ski lift away and will serve all your après needs, making this resort one of our understated favourites.⁠

Tucked between Australia and Fiji, Vanuatu is a cluster of 80 islands that are less well-coiffed but decidedly more beautiful. Shell-strewn sand meets water bobbing with rickety fishing boats, mangrove-dense forests reveal freshwater pools (equipped with pre-strung swing ropes), cascading waterfalls spill through bushy rainforests and active volcanoes erupt in nightly shows that spew molten rock metres into the air.⁠

It's no secret that the City of Light inspired some of art history’s greatest names. Its bridges, streets, operas, cafés and brothels have been the subject of wistful words and painterly brushstrokes for centuries. It’s also home to some of the greatest art of all time, from Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa to Monet’s set of eight luminous Water Lilies.⁠
⁠
So beguiling is the city’s collection of masterpieces, though, that visitors rarely veer off the well-trodden path. Link in bio for our alternative art guide to Paris. ⁠
