Da Nang
The port city of Da Nang is a beacon for foodies, who flock here to sample the famously fresh and bold flavours of Central Vietnamese cuisine. Taste your way through the streets on a walking or biking culinary tour. Work off those bowls of spicy noodle soup with an exploration of the caves and grottos of the Marble Mountains. Be sure to time your nighttime stroll so you pass the Dragon Bridge when its “head” breathes fire over the River Han.

Explore the mangroves, waterfalls and wildlife of splendid Ream National Park, or rent a dirt bike for some awesome all-terrain exploration. A Saturday evening at Otres Market promises lively music, terrific food and a true taste of local culture.

Ao Nang
The beaches of Ao Nang are picture-perfect stretches of gleaming sand, sparkling waters and candy-coloured sunsets. Book a snorkel or SCUBA tour for some underwater exploration, or just relax on the deck as you cruise between local islands on a vintage teak boat. Rock climbers will drool over the limestone crags and cliffs of nearby Rai Leh.

Naha

Meanwhile, on Kokusai-dori (International Boulevard), the pace never lets up as locals and tourists hop from restaurants to bars to nightclubs.

Hurghada
Stunning coral reefs and turquoise waters perfect for windsurfing have made Hurghada, on Egypt's Red Sea Coast, a busy resort town. Within easy reach of the stunning Giftun Islands and the Eastern Arabian Desert, Hurghada has seen enormous amounts of development in the past decade—and yes, it does seem overrun with tourists at times. But it’s a relatively easy beach escape for Europeans, and some of the world's best diving and snorkeling sites are just offshore. Walk or catch a cab to explore the old quarter, El Dahar.

Kazan
On the banks of the Volga River, Kazan sits austerely, its cityscape a visual confection of architecture that somehow manages to be both playful and severe. No matter your spiritual inclination, you simply must visit the Temple of All Religions, a Technicolor cultural center built by artist Ildar Khanov. Though still a work in progress, the "temple" is a feast for the eyes—and the spirit.

Charming Eilat is one of Israel’s most popular resort cities. Nestled at the Northern tip of the Red Sea, Eilat’s warm, clear waters are a huge draw for divers, while the reefs of Coral Beach Nature Reserve are perfect for snorkelers. Above sea level, the ancient copper mines of Timna National Park are begging to be explored, as are the shops, bars and restaurants of the seaside promenade.
