Cambodia is a true gem of Southeast Asia. It is a country of contrasts with ancient architecture being swallowed up by the surrounding jungles at Ta Prohm, while just down the road, Siem Reap offers luxury accommodations, modern amenities, and fine dining.
Punta Arenas is Chile’s gateway to the Antarctic, but more famously, to Tierra del Fuego and Patagonia. This isolated city faces the Strait of Magellan and is the capital of the Magallanes province in Chile’s remote southern Patagonia region. What once started as a 19th century pioneer city full of sailors and sheep breeders, today Punta Arenas is a sprawling metropolis. Home to tree-lined squares, national parks and colonial mansions, it will surprise you with its sophisticated European architecture and ever changing weather!

No Egypt Tour would be complete without seeing the Great Pyramids of Giza, but most people don’t realize that these ancient monuments are bordered by a modern, chaotic city and not isolated in some remote desert like many pictures would have you believe. There are hotels and high-rise apartment blocks full of satellite dishes facing the famous pyramids, and “pyramid-view rooms” or “pyramid-view apartments” come with a higher price tag. There’s even a Pizza Hut/KFC right across from the Great Sphinx (located adjacent to the pyramids), jostling for space alongside all the souvenir shops selling papyrus paper paintings and alabaster cats!
