Visitors can frolic in the natural waters while enjoying the panoramic view of the London skyline, or picnic along the surrounding grasslands and meadows. The Hampstead Ponds are open to the public all year round and a must-visit for travellers seeking a different kind of London experience. For a glimpse into the literature, history, and culture of the United Kingdom, travellers can also include the British Library into their itinerary. The National Library of the United Kingdom and one of the largest libraries in the world, it houses over 170 million items, including Shakespeare’s First Folio and original manuscripts by authors like Jane Austen.

For a more local and offbeat experience of Paris, take a stroll or a boat ride along the Canal Saint-Martin, the quieter and more laid-back counterpart of River Seine. The 4.5km canal, of which 2km is underground, interweaves through charming boutiques, cafes, and vibrant neighbourhoods. It also boasts iconic canal locks, footbridges, and swing bridges. For a picturesque slice of Parisian life, travellers can head over to the Cité des Fleurs (City of Flowers), a pedestrian street located in the 17th arrondissement of Paris. Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city, the cobblestoned street is lined with quaint and colourful houses teeming with beautiful flowers and trees.

 While a cemetery is unlikely to top any traveller’s bucket list, the Cimitero Monumentale (Monumental Cemetery) is worth a visit. An impressive outdoor museum spanning 250,000 square metres, it is known for its sculptures, monuments, and tombs, created by various renowned artists and architects. Guided tours are available for those who wish to explore the cemetery’s history and artistic heritage. Cinephiles and dessert aficionados alike can then check out Bar Luce, a café designed by film director Wes Anderson. Inspired by Italian pop culture of the 1950s and 1960s, the bar’s design pays homage to the city itself as well as Milanese cafes of the past.

For those looking to take a creative break, the Dubai Design Week returns from 5 to 10 November 2024.
