Adventurous indigenous cuisine, breathtaking valley vistas and glorious new world wines makes Chile a delicious destination for gastronomy lovers.

While some lovers are destined to spend their vacations on white sandy beaches, food and wine lovers are called to look towards South America’s richest country, Chile, for romantic holiday satisfaction. For it is in Chile – a long, slender country of contrasts spanning three continents – that a passionate affair with new world wines and regional cuisine can be woven into one gastronomic getaway.

It’s goodbye cherry blossoms and hello fall foliage in Kyoto — and we’re smitten with the new season. Spectacular, compelling, and deeply romantic, autumn sees this enchanting city transformed into a sea of amber, scarlet and crimson. It’s also go-time for a tempting calendar of exhibitions, festivals and events perfect for cultural discovery. We’re calling it: autumn is our new favourite time to go to Kyoto!

People scurry past, umbrellas held tight and coats buttoned from collar to hem as protection from the inclement weather. We stand, sans umbrella, dripping wet and exhausted after our long flight via Hong Kong. All I want is a hot shower but we can’t seem to decipher the secret code of entry.

Sophisticated and utterly cosmopolitan, Shanghai is one of the most fascinating cities in mainland China. Historic relics aren’t as prominent, but what China’s financial hub lacks in those it makes up for with epicurean cuisine, a robust nightlife, shopping, and splendid sights.

So when Hong Kong-based airline Cathay Pacific shared with us a list of some of the dazzling country's most picturesque spots, we couldn't help but start dreaming of discovering it all for ourselves. Leave it up to the likes of @_lichipan, @apairandaspare and @itchban to get us mentally planning our next getaway…
