Spending the night high up in the trees is an exciting prospect for anyone, regardless of age. And, with nature vacations becoming increasingly popular, we've compiled a list of eight jaw-dropping treehouses from around the world to add to your travel bucket list. There are a lot of beautiful places to hide away, from fancy hotels with candlelit jacuzzis to simple cabins in the woods with nothing but a mosquito net between you and the stars.

Treehotel is a modern residence suspended high above the leafy canopies of Sweden's Harads forest. This fusion of contemporary architecture and whimsical fun is the ideal place to cosy up among the trees—and it's only 50 kilometres from the Arctic Circle.

Treehotel was conceived by entrepreneur Kent Lindvall and consists of four forest dwellings, each custom-designed by a different architect. Choose between the reflective Mirrorcube, the camouflaged Bird's Nest, the wooden cabin, and the otherworldly UFO as your lodging. These eco-friendly accommodations also include a sauna, hot tub, and swimming pool.

Tsala Treetop Lodge is located in the dramatic hinterlands of South Africa's Garden Route National Park, a relaxing private paradise to return to after a day exploring the park's rugged coastlines, ancient lakes, and evergreen forests.

This idyllic treetop retreat is ideal for couples seeking a romantic getaway with plenty of comfort and atmosphere. Relax in your private infinity pool with a glass of champagne as the sun sets beyond a horizon of verdant mountains.

 The diversity and scale of Australia’s natural splendour is breathtaking. From humblingly huge desert and otherworldly rock formations to gnarled, ancient rainforest and the world’s largest coral reef, the range of sights to see is vast. As is the range of accommodation you can book.

For an unforgettable trip, try glamping in a remote part of the Outback, enjoy an authentic Aussie station (farm or ranch) experience or spend the night in a grand, historic Melbourne hotel.

Found deep within Karijini National ParkKarijini Eco Retreat provides a luxury experience while immersed in the sublime natural beauty of the Outback. Just a short hike from your glamping tent, you’ll find the rich red rock of Joffre Gorge, a natural amphitheatre with a pool of water and a pebbled rock island in the middle. Other park highlights include the stunning, year-round Fortescue Falls and Mount Bruce, whose summit trail rewards you with breathtaking views of the majestic and empty, arid landscape. Camping in the Bush also offers almost unparalleled stargazing, so be sure to pull up a pew on your tent’s private deck when the sun goes down. The sound of dingos and owls howling and hooting in the distance as you fall asleep in the comfort of your big double bed, adds to the element of adventure.

For laid-back Aussie beach life with a touch of luxury, plenty of privacy and your very own swimming pool, Fat Frog Beach Houses is the perfect choice. The holiday home is located just a short walk from the captivating beach in Byron Bay, the mellow surf town that’s long been known for its surfer and hippie communities. If the novelty of fantastic waves and sunning yourself on the sand wears off, hike up to Cape Byron Lighthouse to touch the most easterly point of Australia.

For those who want a taste of city life Down Under, a stay beside Sydney’s spectacular harbour is a great place to start. At Milson Serviced Apartments, some apartments have sweeping views of the Harbour Bridge, Lavender Bay and the city’s stunning skyline. You’ll also be in close proximity to many key sights, including the Opera House and the Royal Botanic Garden.

 A bike allows you to view all of the landmarks while also allowing you to discover the city's hidden gems. It also allows you to quickly transform into a local, even if only for the weekend. Cycling city breaks are becoming increasingly enticing, with bike rental on the rise, bike-sharing applications gaining traction, and transportation operators now offering cheaper and easier solutions for carrying bikes as luggage.

For those who enjoy a good spin, here's a list of cycle-friendly cities.

Kyoto, Japan

Kyoto's streets are built out in a grid layout going North-South and East-West, similar to the ancient Chinese capital of Chang'an, making it incredibly easy to navigate by bike. Despite the lack of bike-only lanes, the city has a reputation for being bike-friendly. If the roads are congested, certain 'pedestrian spaces' can be used, but only those with a sign declaring that this is permitted (and if you are, remember to weave your way through pedestrians carefully and respectfully). Most sites have a modest bicycle parking lot close to them, but if you're in the city center, you can utilize the larger ones, such as the WINGS Downtown parking lot or Kyoto Station.

Copenhagen, Denmark

In Copenhagen, the number of bikes officially surpassed the number of vehicles a few years ago. This is hardly surprising given the city's infrastructure, which includes bike lanes isolated from car traffic, traffic lights timed according to average cycling speed, and a network of Cycle Superhighways specifically created for commuters. Whether you're there to ride one of the world's oldest roller coasters at Tivoli Gardens, confront local counter culture in Christiania, or simply have a beer or a coffee by the seaside in Nyhavn, try it out for yourself by touring the city by bike. If you still have energy for a final sprint, visit the Crowne Plaza Copenhagen Towers' eco-friendly gym.

Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Even the Dutch prime minister rides his bike around Amsterdam, and the Dutch are very proud of their bike culture. Renting an omafiets (Dutch-style bike) to zip around Amsterdam will provide you with a truly Dutch experience. Bike rentals are available at many hotels, including the Conscious Hotel, which is particularly eco-friendly. The hotel's sustainable features are explained on small tags or signs, and it's directly close to the gorgeous Vondelpark.

When I heard that Sketch had opened a branch in Abuja, I knew it was only a matter of time before my wallet and I showed up. I also knew they served Egyptian cuisine and had been looking forward to trying it for the first time, so coming here was quite exciting.

First, let's talk about looks. Walking into Sketch is, quite literally, like walking into a storybook. The restaurant is created with 2D/3D features from top to bottom, creating a bizarre but intriguing atmosphere. It also adds to the overall dining experience, which is something you always want when you go out to dine.

I was looking forward to a wonderful supper after I was seated and given the menu, however none of the items on the menu that I desired were available. I had to settle for the kebab and kofta with grilled chicken wings and potatoes, which was little unpleasant. My dinner took around 25 minutes to prepare, and when it arrived, the amounts were extremely little in proportion to the prices. But I reasoned that the taste would not bother me.

The chicken wings were ok, nothing special and well within the acceptable range, but the fries were fantastic; I could tell they were made with fresh potatoes, which is fantastic. Fresh potato fries and frozen potato fries from a plastic bag are clearly different, iykyk.

To the kebab and kofta: I was ecstatic when I spotted kebab because I honestly believe North-Eastern Africa knows how to create banging meat. Sketch's kebab wasn't really kebab-like (I almost don't want to talk about it), but the naan that came with it was delicious and fresh. Unfortunately, the naan, fries, and beverages (I had the Mooly and Arnold Palmer cocktails) were the only things I really liked about this place, which is a shame.

Basically, if you're going to eat here, bring a big budget because it's not cheap and the amounts aren't proportionate. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant for a date because it's really loud, but it's perfect for lunch with friends or a night out.

Nothing beats a hot cocktail to keep you warm in the winter. Continue reading to learn about the history and locations of the world's best winter cocktails.

Hot Toddy in India

This sweet and soothing brew hails from India

This sweet and soothing brew hails from India

The hot toddy is not only delicious; it is also thought to be a cure for the common cold. The original Hot Toddy is said to have been inspired by a local drink in British-controlled India, and it has gone through many iterations since then.

This drink is made from fermented palm sap— called tārī in Hindi—and used to be a sweet and spicy concoction served cold. Word spread quickly, and the drink's popularity spread to North America and the UK, eventually ending up as the Hot Toddy we know today: a blend of whiskey, rum, or brandy mixed with honey, lemon, and spices. Whether a little sick or in great health, Bookers can treat themselves to a signature Spiced Toddy at Grandmama’s Café in Mumbai. From there, the luxurious St. Regis Mumbai is just a short rickshaw ride away.

Irish Coffee in Ireland

Irish Coffee is every sweet tooth's favorite

Like many of the world’s best recipes, Irish coffee was an accident. When trying to warm up a group of stranded North American Pan Am passengers in County Limerick, chef Joe Sheridan added a splash of whiskey to some sweetened coffee with fresh cream. The passengers asked if they’d been served Brazilian coffee. Sheridan called it “Irish coffee,” and a legend was born. For the best Irish coffee around, head straight to Dublin. Vice Coffee, Inc. is as famous for its take on this warm cocktail as it is for its Guinness cake. For a mean Irish coffee in a more traditional pub setting, stop by O’Donoghue’s and O’Sullivans. Then Bookers should check in to the boutique Morgan Hotel, right across the river from Vice Coffee, Inc. and other popular bars.

Glühwein in Germany

Sip on a Glühwein with some festive gingerbread

Like so much of European culture, spiced wine started with the Romans. The recipe spread throughout medieval Europe and soon became a winter tradition with near-identical variations popping up in England, France and Germany (known as mulled wine, vin chaud and Glühwein, respectively). In fact, the German version is served at traditional Christmas markets, often with gingerbread, and made with red wine, citrus fruits, sugar, cinnamon, and cloves. A mug costs about 5 Euros (usually including a deposit for the mug), so Bookers can explore all the Christmas stalls and never stop sipping. The Savoy Hotel has a central location, great for checking out the city’s best Christmas markets.

Hot Buttered Rum in Jamaica

Warm your spirit with a Jamaican Hot Buttered Rum

Although hot rum under a scorching sun on a Caribbean island might sound strange, Jamaican rum is well worth it. After the British Royal Navy invaded Jamaica in 1655 and sailors’ daily ration of brandy got replaced by rum, this delicious liquor spread fast. Soon it was being imported in bulk to distilleries across Europe and the USA. It started working its way into winter drinks, getting mixed with cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and—most importantly—butter. Stay at Kingston’s amazing Tranquility Estate where Bookers can warm up with a hot buttered rum for a nightcap on the terrace overlooking the Kingston hills.

Once again, it's time to drive or fly to your next big Summer vacation. And if you're eager to make a big splash with your family vacation, we've identified five of the country's (United States) best, largest, and most hospitable waterparks.

Noah’s Ark, Wisconsin Dells, WI

At the country's largest waterpark, the world's largest King Cobra rollercoaster, Black Anaconda, offers thrill-seekers a run for their money.

Noah's Ark features 70 acres of rides and slides, making it the largest waterpark in the United States. This gigantic waterpark, which stands out even in the Waterpark Capital of the World® – Wisconsin Dells, features everything from a 4-D "Dive-in" movie theatre to a looping waterslide. Thrill-seekers will enjoy the Black Anaconda, awarded America's Most Thrilling Water Coaster, while families will appreciate Noah's Ark's commitment to aquatic safety, which has been recognized year since 1995. Allow the fun to continue beyond Noah's Ark. Grand Marquis Waterpark Hotel & Suites is located less than two kilometres down the road. With more outdoor and indoor pools to select from, this Wisconsin Dells resort will never run out of possibilities to create lasting memories.

Kalahari Resort Pocono, Poconos Mountains, PA

At the nation's largest indoor waterpark, it's always summer.

The Kalahari Resort Pocono indoor waterpark, which is kept at 84° for 364 days a year, is the ideal place to escape the rain, snow, or everything in between. This resort, which is the largest indoor waterpark in the United States, offers much more than just water slides. Explore the world in a new manner with underwater virtual reality, or unwind at the spa following an action-packed day. This waterpark, located near excellent hiking in the Poconos Mountains, is ideal for anyone who does not want to choose between roughing it and resorting. Mountain Springs Lake Resort is the best spot to stay if you want to reconnect with nature following your waterpark excursion. Its cosy cabin vibe combined with the breathtaking vistas of the Poconos will ensure a relaxed evening. Alternatively, if the children are still brimming with vitality, take advantage of the on-site beach and hiking trails during the summer months, or hit the ski slopes during the winter.

Immerse yourself completely in Greek island life in an idyllic villa on the island of Santorini, where you can swim in a cobalt-blue sea, drive through tranquil whitewashed villages in search of your morning Spanakopita (spinach and feta pastry), and sunbathe in blazing sunshine when it's safe to do so. Your only issue will be determining the optimal vantage point from which to take in the island's dreamlike panoramas.

The infinitely-instagrammable colour palette of Anemi House & Villas

A traditional Santorini cave house painted pink, lilac, and blue, Anemi House & Villas is as photogenic as the caldera itself. It’s laid out like a rabbit warren, with gray stone stairs and private pockets of terrace punctuated by a plunge pool. Shaded by olive and palm trees beside overflowing flower pots, you’ll have a wide choice of places to enjoy a glass of wine in the evening sun. The house has everything you could ever want on vacation: An attentive but unobtrusive owner, Dimitris, beautiful monochrome suites varying from bright white to royal blue and hot pink, 360-degree views of the island from the rooftop, outdoor hot tubs, and lots of local markets.

Ikia Kriton

Have a glass of wine with a surreal Aegean Sea backdrop at Ikia Kriton

This historic stone house is perched on the cliffs above Santorini's caldera, a crater that was partially buried by the Aegean Sea following a volcanic eruption some 3,600 years ago. Views out onto this half-moon-shaped bay are widely sought after, and each year, hundreds of thousands of travellers flock here to see beautiful sunsets over whitewashed cottages, a sapphire blue sea, and maroon cliffs. The unobstructed view of the island from the expansive terrace of this property is a priceless asset and a lovely setting for an early morning coffee or a nightcap provided to you by welcome hosts Kriton and Eirini, a mother and son duo.
Just before the arrival of your little one, it’s a great idea to take some time to unwind, with many soon-to-be parents planning relaxing getaways – often called babymoons. Whether you’re looking for a luxurious retreat or a lowkey hideaway, we put together our top five locations to enjoy before your little bundle of joy makes its grand entrance.

Miami Beach, Florida

Soak up the sun by the swimming pool in Miami Beach.

A babymoon should be all about letting go. Despite its party scene, Miami Beach is a surprisingly zen destination. Try the fresh and breezy rooms of 1 Hotel South Beach, where you can spend hours by one of their four swimming pools. Lay back on a lounge chair, sip a refreshing beverage, and take in the hotel’s jaw-dropping sea views. It’s also just a short drive away from glamorous shopping and dining locations if you decide to venture out during your stay.

Built in the early 18th century, and completely rebuilt in the second half of the 19th century, the Church of Nossa Senhora do Terço, in the São José neighbourhood, initially belonged to the Confraria de Santa Rita de Cássia. It became a place of memory for black culture from the 1960s, when the Night of the Silent Drums began, an important festive and religious celebration involving the maracatu's-nation of the Metropolitan Region of Recife.

Tulum also called Tulum Pueblo) is the largest community in the municipality of Tulum, Quintana Roo, Mexico. It is located on the Caribbean coast of the state, near the site of the archaeological ruins of Tulum. The community had a 2010 census population of 18,233 inhabitants. It is also the setting for Raymond Avery Bartlett's 2015 novel, Sunsets of Tulum.

Tulum is the site of a pre-Columbian Mayan walled city that served as a major port for Coba, in the Mexican state of Quintana Roo. The ruins are situated on 12-meter (39 ft) tall cliffs along the east coast of the Yucatán Peninsula on the Caribbean Sea in the state of Quintana Roo, Mexico. Tulum was one of the last cities built and inhabited by the Maya; it was at its height between the 13th and 15th centuries and managed to survive about 70 years after the Spanish began occupying Mexico. Old World diseases brought by the Spanish settlers appear to have resulted in very high fatalities, disrupting society and eventually causing the city to be abandoned. citation needed One of the best-preserved coastal Maya sites, Tulum is today a popular site for tourists.

Fairy Pools, Isle of Skye

The Fairy Pools look as magical as they sound
The Fairy Pools look as magical as they sound
The Fairy Pools form a collection of ice-blue waters and tumbling rapids that look like something straight out of Scottish folklore. Amid the Isle of Skye's emerald knolls (hills) and towering glens (valleys), these ponds can be reached via a trek along the River Brittle. The water temperature may be breathlessly cold but it's also endlessly enticing and refreshing to swim beneath rocky cliffs and under hidden arches shrouded by waterfalls. Clamber up onto the surrounding rocks to dry off in the sun before a drive home to the wooden cabins of Skeabost View Pods Skye.

Lower Ddwili Falls, Brecon Beacons

The Lower Ddwili Falls is hidden in the woods of Pontneddfechan
Hidden in Wales' bucolic Waterfall Country beneath the hulking red sandstone peaks of the Brecon Beacons, you'll find the Lower Ddwili Falls. An open pool crested by gushing waterfalls, this place is a real spectacle. You can reach it via a walk through the woods from the villages of Pontneddfechan or Pont Melin-Fach. On sunny days, the waterfall mist leaves rainbow trails overhead. Spend the night at the 18th-century farmhouse, Beili Helyg Guest House, just a short drive away.
