Sigiriya in was visually stunning, and it was fabulous to stay at a hotel with a great view of the rock in at the end of our holiday; the elephant safari in Uda Walawe was for the most part a peaceful and enjoyable afternoon; the Barefoot cafe in Colombo was a lovely place to look around and have lunch.

The most memorable part of our holiday was the time spent at Plitvice. We arrived in torrential rain at c9.00 am, but had come prepared with our ponchos! By mid morning the weather had cleared and the sun was out. This area has to be unique in the world, with all the walk ways running along the numerous waterfalls and water flowing underneath your feet. (more)Amanda Distin
Difficult to make a choice because the coastline is beautiful and the towns are very interesting but the Plitvice Lakes have the edge and were very memorable even in the rain! We also found Ston surprising - in a good way - particularly walking the walls. (more)Marilyn Cole
Plitvice National Park and walking the walls of Dubrovnik both stand out as super experiences. Both needed early starts but so worth it to get ahead of the crowds and enjoy the beautiful scenery. (more)Carolyn Farrar

I loved Machu Picchu. It totally lived up to my expectations - and was pleased that we did a 'two day trek' to get there as it added to the experience (actually only one day of trekking and one day of being there. Tina loved the rain forest most - it came a very close second for me. (more)Andy Cook
It was all a wonderful experience but the definite high spot was the Machu Picchu visit and the 2 day Inca Trail. (more)Cicely Olive

Memorable parts? We had many memorable experiences on our trip to China. Every day produced a new experience, each different and often additional things that we had not anticipated. Clearly The Great Wall, Terracotta Warriors, Panda's, Forbidden Palace were all amazing, but for me the peace and quiet of drifting down the river on a bamboo raft at Guilon was just perfect after the frantic travelling around China. Tips? Make sure that you have a suitcase with wheels,there is a lot... (more)Nigel Davies

From
£1,298

We had an excellent holiday and so it is difficult to pick out was most memorable, but we did particularly enjoy the horse ride and visit to the tobacco fields and our stay on Cayo Levisa. But we also loved Havana and Trinidad. (more)Richard Patterson
Having designed my own trip, the best aspect was the freedom to spent time doing things on a whim sitting around immersing myself in the less touristy aspects of Cuba, away from the bars and CD-touting bands, instead mixing with the least affluent of the society, meeting fascinating characters and enjoying the music made by people in their own front rooms and doorsteps. (more)Chris Bragg
Horse riding through the tobacco fields in Vinales on Christmas Day was the most memorable. (more)Elizabeth Freeman

I would suggest to have an idea of the itinerary and the type of trip and then contact a tour operator with a strong knowledge of the country. Tips are invaluable if travelling for the first time there. I also found extremely useful having a local guide and... (more)Ezio La Rosa

Memorable parts? This is a difficult one, as everyday was different and full of interest. Five of us went on this holiday and the best part for me was the morning view from our homestay balcony in Vietnam.
