Sweden

Summer in Vastra Gotaland is a must do. Thanks to the late author Stieg Larsson, most have an idea of what Sweden’s like. Sweden is evolving with a new pop-culture identity. Perhaps not unpredictably, in 2014, northern Sweden’s biggest city, Umeå, is termed as the European Culture Capital. The capital has long been a chic, elegant and  top-notch destination for serious gourmands and experimental chefs, but lately the reputation and influence of Swedish cooking have spread beyond the country’s borders. Considering that Swedish cuisine uses so much of  locally sourced ingredients, it makes perfect sense to go to the source of all this fine food.

Sun-baking on a Caribbean beach after partying all night in Cancun, shopping for colourful handicrafts or devouring on seven types of mole (chilli sauce) in Oaxaca, stepping back in time at a Mayan temple – there is just so much to suit all.
