1. Hong Kong, China Sunsets amidst the greens at Lantau South Country Park

Lastminute.com reviewer adds, "Weather mixed but this was expected. Food fantastic but quite expensive. We only ate veggie but choice, quality and vibrant colours were fab. Lots of sights varying from amazing skyline to nature and religious shrines. 5 full days and plenty achieved. This is minimum visiting time realistically needed to achieve a meaningful HK experience."

2. Phuket, Thailand A beautiful waterfall and an amazing jungle view - Kathu Waterfall

Lastminute.com reviewer adds, "Phuket is a tourist trap where you start to think you are in a scooby doo cartoon due to the repetitive nature of the buildings. Tattoo shops, massage parlours, restaurants and bars are on a loop everywhere you go. If you like a party then I’d definitely recommend checking it out though."

3. Madrid, Spain Retiro Park for some peaceful alone time boating

Lastminute.com reviewer says, "Madrid has this unique Imperial look acquired from its past, mixing its history with an affable and european nature of its people. Nice weather, cheap to eat out and about, clean and well communicated thanks to its wonderful public transport."

4. Edinburgh, United Kingdom Treat yourself to a mid-city picnic at Princes Street Gardens

Lastminute.com reviewer shares, "I'm a local, so I know my way around, and I'll take a few seconds to jot down my favourite, less well known spots. Just off the royal mile, there is a great chicken place called wings. Lucas ice cream is an essential for an Edinburgh visit. There is one in morningside, which is one of the best places to go if your looking for a café or even take away and have a picnic on the nearby brunsfield links. If you can take the trip Coldingham is a lovely tucked away beach along the coast, know for its water sports and it's secluded nature, there is also a cafe and there if you want a night out of town. Finally, for the more sporty, well priced tennis/table courts can be booked at Craiglockhart and Oriam. EICA is also great as it's rock climbing facilities are unparalleled."
