The best of both, all in one trip...

We've assembled a few of our favourite duos to inspire your next multi-centre escape.

Cape Town & Mauritius

When To Travel: November - February
Cape Town
Cape Town
Pairing South Africa's 'Mother City' with one of the Indian Ocean's most picturesque playgrounds promises the perfect mix of sightseeing and solitude. Your culture trip in Cape Town could include a seriously scenic helicopter flight above the city, a cable car ride to the top of colossal Table Mountain and walking amongst the historical sites of Company's Garden, Green Market Square and St George's Cathedral, along with exploring the 17th century houses and cobblestone streets of Bo-Kaap. Once you've traversed the town, retreat to the warm waters and white sands of Mauritius, where you can do as little or as much as you like. Revel in world-class diving and a wealth of watersports, tee off at renowned golf courses, meet the famous local wildlife including the Aldabra Giant Tortoises or sit back, relax and relish boundless sun on the beachfront.

Where to Stay

Cape Town: Waterfront wonder One&Only Cape Town is set in the heart of the bustling Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, featuring a tri-level wine loft, the continent's only Nobu restaurant and the city's most comprehensive wellness sanctuary - the One&Only Spa.

California & Mexico

When To Travel: May - August
Colourful California is synonymous with sunshine, glamour and adventurous road trips along seemingly endless coastal highways. With iconic locations including San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge, Santa Monica's fun-filled pier, the countless wineries of Napa Valley and Los Angeles' legendary Hollywood Walk of Fame, you could easily get lost in California's culture for well over a week on your multi-centre holiday. After encountering this free-spirited state's boundless sights, slip away to Mexico where archaeological sites, powder-soft shorelines and unparalleled natural beauty abound. Stroll through stylish shops and traditional boutiques, or take to the water for jet-skiing, kitesurfing and snorkelling, before returning to your lavish abode for locally inspired dining, craft cocktails and a sunset like nowhere else on earth.

Dubrovnik & Montenegro

When To Travel: June - September
Dubrovnik
Dubrovnik
The walls of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Old City of Dubrovnik hold centuries of history and culture. Enter through one of the two main gates - named Ploce and Pile - and you'll be led through a maze of restaurants, wine bars and boutiques intertwined with Baroque churches, monasteries and fountains. Of course, walking along the walls themselves provides a picturesque insight into their storied past, while Game of Thrones fans can tour the famous King's Landing too! Once you've traversed the town and had a taste of culture - and wine - why not venture to the scenic shores of Montenegro? Pebbled coves and crescent-shaped beaches lead you into the crystalline Adriatic Sea, while the charming old towns and pretty seafronts are lined with fashionable eateries and sleek bars, cooled by a fresh sea breeze.

Chiang Mai & Koh Samui

When To Travel: November - February

Temples, monuments and sacred surroundings are just the beginning of Chiang Mai's culture, a destination well worth exploring during your Thailand twin-centre. This 700-year-old riverside city artfully mingles old and new, placing centuries-old pagodas alongside gourmet restaurants and luxury boutique hotels. The fortified Old Town houses countless temples, including the carved façades of Wat Phra Singh and famous Buddhist monastery Wat Phra That Doi Suthep, while Chiang Mai Night Bazaar is another cultural hub, with sword dancers, jazz bands and stalls serving Thai cuisine filling the street every Sunday. Contrasting Chiang Mai's hustle and bustle, Koh Samui is a post-city oasis, blessed with white sandy beaches, swaying coconut palms and sleepy villages where you can peacefully re-energise before exploring more natural delights, including the awe-inspiring archipelago of Ang Thong National Marine Park.

Miami & Turks and Caicos

When To Travel: February - May
Miami Beach
Miami Beach
Effortlessly margining cultures, industries and design styles, Miami has a unique and intriguing buzz. From abundant Art Deco architecture and the eccentric Wynwood Walls, to the celebrated Pérez Art Museum Miami and iconic Ocean Drive, international influences make this oceanfront city popular with those in search of something different, without straying too far from the golden sands. Saunter down to South Beach to find the famous stretch of sand laden with loungers, surfers playing in the waves, cyclists weaving between the palms and bountiful oceanside dining, ranging from health-driven smoothies and salads, to tantalising tapas. A short flight from Miami will place you on the powder-soft sands of Turks and Caicos, an uncrowded nirvana emulating an ambience of romance and tranquillity where every island has its own character.

Peru & South America

When To Travel: October - January

While South America's third largest country may instantly bring magnificent images of Machu Picchu to mind, beyond the 'Old Peak', you'll find many more ancient wonders and equally enticing modern delights. While the centuries-old Inca trail leads you through verdant jungle, cloud forests and meandering mountain paths, the modern city of Lima indulges visitors with bustling boutiques and bars, still satisfying culture-seekers curiosities with a UNESCO-listed historic quarter. Beyond Peru, there's plenty more to see in South America - and there's no easier way than by cruise. Silversea's 17-day cruise from Lima to Punta Arenas not only takes you along thousands of miles of coastline, but includes visits to fascinating locations including Arica - 'the land of the eternal spring' - and Castro in Chile, before you sail towards the grandeur of the Chilean Fjords.

Bangkok & Koh Yao Noi

When To Travel: January - April
Bangkok
Bangkok
Culturally rich and delightfully chaotic, Bangkok is often the starting point for a luxury holiday in Thailand, but this vibrant city is well worth further exploration. Something new waits around every corner; from sizzling street-food stalls and traditional craft markets, to designer boutiques and trendsetting rooftop bars overlooking the skyline, the contrast is perfectly balanced for every type of traveller. In between the city streets, you'll find showstopping temple Wat Phra Kaew and the glittering golden rooftops of the Grand Palace, while floating markets and gloriously green rice fields can be seen when cruising Bangkok's river and canals. Swap city for coast as you venture to pretty Phang Nga Bay, home to the island of Koh Yao Noi. Thriving with traditional culture, you're free to pedal along the sleepy lanes, explore the bay by kayak or unwind on soft, white sands.

Where to Stay

Bangkok: Banyan Tree Bangkok provides the utmost luxury within easy reach of the city's spectacular sights. Relish the serenity of the largest hotel spa in the city, create authentic Thai cuisine with a cookery class or sip sundowners at the renowned rooftop bar.

Rome & Amalfi Coast

When To Travel: April - July

Italy's cosmopolitan capital houses some of the world's most famous historic ruins, dating back as far as the ancient Roman era and Renaissance period. From the Trevi Fountain and the beautiful Spanish Steps, to St Peter's Basilica and the Vatican, iconic monuments are easy to find in the 'Eternal City'. It's also easy to locate gourmet restaurants and stylish eateries serving foodie favourites, including pizza, pasta, seafood, and plenty of fine wine. Our favourite part of a twin-centre holiday in Italy - the stunningly scenic drive to the coast. Meander along cliffside roads and winding lanes as you make your way to the Amalfi Coast, Southern Italy's famous coastline. Secret beaches with sensational seascapes are worth searching for, while colourful coastal towns house glorious art and architecture. Head for the lofty heights of Ravello's pretty alfresco cafes, or linger amongst the steep streets and boutique shops of undeniably glamourous Positano.

After graduating from university, I couldn't wait to start exploring (with a very full suitcase, of course!). From my home in picturesque North Wales, my travels have taken me from the idyllic Greek Islands to the bright lights of New York, and I've always got my eye on the next destination!
