Take a look below at our top tips for what to do with your extra time and book by 18 January 2018.

Discovery trips

Whether you prefer history or the arts, trying new foods or simply opting for a city stroll, an extra day offers more time to explore; perhaps you’ll visit the Museo Larco in Lima, or sip a Saigon-style coffee in Binh Tay Market. In Marrakech – an assault on the senses like no other – you could stroll around the tranquil Jardin Majorelle as a respite from the medina, or visit the tannery for an unusual olfactory experience.

Family holidays

Intrepid families will relish an extra day in a new destination; not only does it offer additional time to adjust to the time difference or climate, it affords the chance to make the most of a different country. Beat the jetlag with a walk around Hanoi’s Old Quarter, or relax at our lodge in Johannesburg, where you can make the most of a refreshing outdoor swimming pool.

Active holidays

Warm up for your walking or cycling trip with a leg-stretching meander through one of Lima’s many food markets, or relax your muscles after your flight at one of Kovalam’s Ayurvedic centres with a traditional Indian massage. You’ll spend the next few days in the saddle or on your feet, so take the opportunity to chill out: some of our African lodges have swimming pools – perfect for a refreshing dip.

Asia trips

Asia’s colourful markets, serene temples and tangled streets are a feast for the senses. With an extra day you could shop for ornate saris in New Delhi’s Janpath Market, take a stroll around Hoan Kiem Lake and eat a bowl of steaming pho in Hanoi’s cluttered Old Quarter, or wander through Beijing’s hutongs to Tiananmen Square and the Chairman Mao Memorial Building.

Americas trips

Help your jet lag dissipate with a leg-stretching ramble around South America’s most atmospheric cities. Buenos Aires’ vibrant barrios provide the perfect backdrop for a stroll – try San Telmo’s antique shops and restaurants for an authentic slice of life. Alternatively, sample the street food scenes in Quito or Mexico City, or take a microbrewery tour of San Jose.

Africa and Middle East holidays

Africa may be famous for its safari parks, but its cities are also worth exploring. Spend time comparing the diverse neighbourhoods of Johannesburg, from Sandton to Maboneng. In North Africa and the Middle East, cities like Tangier and Muscat provide an insight into life many centuries ago, from bustling souks to cobbled kasbahs with sweeping Atlantic views.
