Hamburg

Hamburg was forced to rebuild and reinvent itself in the wake of World War II bombings. The result? A captivating mix between the old and new; a modern metropolis infused with lessons and memories of the past.

Not much of the city remained in the wake of the war. Kontorhausviertel and Speicherstadt are two areas which escaped bombings. They’re now UNESCO World Heritage sites and feature some of the city’s most captivating brickwork and gothic revival architecture. Despite this, cafes and bars are littered throughout these areas giving them a lively atmosphere day and night.

Vietnam is one of Southeast Asia’s most beautiful countries, attracting travellers to its lush mountains, bustling cities and golden sand beaches. Despite rapid modernisation in Vietnam’s urban centres of Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh, time-honoured traditions remain intact amongst the locals. There are numerous ancient landmarks and colonial structures that have survived throughout the bumps and scrapes of history.
