Drive to Aphrodisias, a Roman city set in the Anatolian wilderness (2 hour 20 minutes from Selçuk). The excellent museum has a room dedicated to the marble reliefs that used to adorn the Sebasteion, a temple to deified Roman Emperors and their Gods. It’s a thoroughly interesting historical site and a beautiful spot to stroll around. The whole place takes about 2 hours to explore.

From Didim, drive 50 minutes to Kapıkırı through the beautiful Bafa Gölü National Park. Kapikiri – a rural farming village that is slowly absorbing tourism – sits just above the lake and gives a fascinating insight into subsistence living in Turkey. It takes less than an hour to stroll every lane and watch the local community go about their daily lives.

Next, head to the Temple of Apollo (another 25 minutes’ drive) in Didim. The huge columns of this ancient site are a reminder of how colossal this temple once was. Nowhere else on this 2-week Turkey itinerary demonstrates so clearly the size, power and might with which the Romans honoured their Gods.

For a great budget choice in Selçuk, we recommend Amazon Petite Palace. With an excellent location and cool Turkey stylings, the mid-market Ayasoluk Hotel is a great choice. For a splurge try Cella Boutique Hotel

Next, continue on to Ephesus. As the capital of Roman Asia Minor, it’s packed with ancient architecture reflecting the power and wealth of the city; it’s possibly the best Roman ruin in the world. The Library of Celsus is its iconic image of Ephesus, but pay the extra ₺20 to go inside the covered terrace houses for the incredibly well-preserved frescoes. It takes about 2 hours to explore the entire site and its one of our favourite historical places in Turkey.

Grab lunch in Selçuk, a compact town with a relaxing vibe. There are a few tourists in this area but most stay at Kudasai on the coast, so Selçuk is a refreshingly local experience.

Fresh from its Olympic and Paralympic success, Japan is a dream holiday destination that should be firmly on your list for 2022. This year, however, it's time to go beyond Tokyo and explore the country's rural side. Japan's newest bullet train route, Nishi Kyushu Shinkansen, is set to open between Nagasaki and Saga in autumn 2022. This will help speed up Nagasaki connections from the current Kyushu bullet train line that comes into Fukuoka from Tokyo.

The trains themselves will be called kamome meaning 'seagull,' following the popularity of lockdown video game franchise, Ghost of Tsushima, which is set on the stunning archipelagos surrounding the city of Nagasaki. Over the next decade, there will also be new bullet train lines joining Tokyo directly to traditional Fukui, snowy Sapporo and passing through the Nakasendo walking trails of the Kiso Valley. Japan is set to be one of the biggest rail holiday destinations of the future...

If ever there was a year to visit the Netherlands, it's 2022 when the Floriade floral spectacle takes place, with its timely eco-theme of ‘growing green cities’. Held every 10 years, the Floriade Expo returns for six months from April to October and will bring an array of unique and fascinating exhibitions to Almere, near Amsterdam.

With a focus on imagining sustainable, city living for the future, you can expect inspiring gardens, workshops and exhibitions mixed with striking attractions and tasting sessions.
