Idling on beaches and lazing languidly by the poolside is not everyone’s cup of tea when it comes to their choice of holiday. Some want action and non-stop adventure, where the sun might go down but the good times carry on regardless. If this sounds like you, make a beeline for some of the hottest and most exciting locations, where you’ll be assured of so much fun that you may just need that beach break to recover.
New York, the ‘city that never sleeps’, is the ultimate enticement for those longing for an endless parade of eateries, theatres, shops and museums. Dazzling lights, Broadway shows and cool cocktail bars will ensure you spend very little time in your hotel room.
Another Trans-Atlantic destination for all night fun and frolics is Las Vegas. Flights to Las Vegas will plonk you into the centre of a real life desert oasis, quite unlike any other. From palm trees and beaches to casinos and all night wedding chapels; in Vegas you can roulette the night away and even win some big bucks. Who needs sleep?
For a little European flair, travel to Moscow, the land of the Bolshoi, Chekov and Tchaikovsky. The intoxicating Russian capital will fill your nights with ballet and vodka and your days with culture. If you find yourself awake during the day, be sure to visit the Pushkin museum and the beautiful red-brick towers of the Kremlin. This city will wow you with its fashionable bars, pulsating clubs, bohemian art cafes and late night mood.
For far a flung and exotic adventure, you can’t do much better than Hong Kong. This city is Asia’s equivalent to New York but with a dash of spice and more than a hint of Eastern mysticism. Watch the old-fashioned junks sailing the harbour at sundown, to a backdrop of sky-scraping towers, neon lights and ancient temples. Get lost in Hong Kong’s bustling backstreets or wind your way through vivid markets, where the scents of lemongrass and jasmine wrap around. There is no better view of the city at night than from a spectacular sky bar. You’ll feel like you’re sitting on the roof of the world.
For an alternative all-night scene, take flights to Canada and head straight for the Yukon. In this breath-taking North West corner of Canada, the sun never sets in the summer months. In the land of the midnight sun, you can quite literally stay up all night and admire the majestic landscapes around you. Celebrate this ethereal Arctic phenomenon with solstice festivals and camping under the endless summer skies; just don’t expect to get much sleep.
