With offices in Singapore and Hong Kong, Lightfoot Travel are totally across the Chinese New Year holiday period. Our experienced Travel Designers have a wide portfolio of CNY luxury tours for this special time to ensure that you and your loved ones enjoy the beginning of the festive celebrations with some well-deserved time out.
Limited for time? If you’re looking for a short CNY break, a tropical beach break could be the answer. The luxurious atolls of the Maldives offer beyond-blue waters teeming with marine life and plenty of private bungalows, villas and ultra-luxurious resorts. The Philippines boasts the powdery white sands of Boracay and world-renowned dive sites in Palawan, while Thailand always delivers sun-drenched sands, lavish spas and romantic retreats.
For family adventure, you can’t go past Australia for its laid back beach culture, secret surfing spots and top-notch food and wine. Drive along its expansive coastline, soak up the colourful coral of the Great Barrier Reef, experience the red sand landscapes of Uluru or the rugged Aussie outback.
Brazil is equally appealing with its blend of city and coastal charms. Explore rock canyons, tropical islands, bio-diverse rainforests and thundering waterfalls. Mysterious Myanmar has become one of our most sought after cultural tours – discover Burmese fusion cuisine, traditional puppet plays and centuries old pagodas and temples.
There are over 7,000 islands in the Philippines archipelago. Handfuls of pearls scattered across a blanket of turquoise. There are more idyllic beaches than you could possibly visit, smouldering volcanoes, pristine coral reef and steamy jungle where monkeys rule the roost; it remains one of the world’s greatest untouched paradises.
Venerated by tourists the world over, Thailand has a unique alchemy of ingredients that keeps us coming back, time and time again. It’s a country of ornate temples and floating river markets, pungent green curries and 5-star luxuries. It’s an intoxicating mix of cities, jungles and beaches bathed in glorious year-round sunshine.
A vast country of vivid contrasts, Australia is blessed with gorgeous natural assets and a bright-eyed and bushy-tailed vibe. It has world-class dive sites, fun and funky cities, fascinating Aboriginal cultural sites, endless copper-coloured deserts and dense pockets of tropical jungle.
The only Portuguese speaking country in Latin America, Brazil's highlights include boating down the Amazon and witnessing the day to day lives of the inhabitants who live along its banks. The wildlife along this stretch is absolutely fabulous - from pink dolphins to a dozen different types of native macaw. Visit the remote corners of the Pantanal wetlands where you're almost guaranteed to see the elusive leopard if you are patient enough.
Myanmar is a mysterious and beautiful land of ancient temples, secret beaches and deeply spiritual people. Nestled between China, Laos, Thailand, Bangladesh, India and the Andaman Sea, Myanmar is a fascinating fusion of culture, history and intrigue. Due to its long period of inaccessibility, visiting Myanmar is like stepping inside a time capsule – Asia’s Cuban equivalent, if you will.
Known best as a haven for summer and winter sports, the country is also famous for Heidi, edelweiss , and producing its fair share of musical prodigies. A landlocked country with the Alps occupying the greater part of the country, Switzerland is a natural playground for ski aficionados and boasts some of the most glamorous ski resorts in the world – Zermatt, Verbier, St. Moritz and Gstaad to name a few.
As a host for the Winter Olympics in 2014, it goes without saying that Whistler is home to impressive skiing and plenty of style . With two huge mountains, runs for all abilities, great après-ski and friendly people, it’s a favourite winter destination for the flashpack , couples and families looking for an activity-packed escape.
