Travel Guide: Our Top 10 Places to Explore

Summer is finally here – time to look out your shorts, sandals and sunglasses! But what about your suitcase? If you haven’t planned a summer getaway yet (or if you want to plan another), we’re here for you. We’re lucky to be able to host and attend conferences for our consultants all around the world – here’s our inside scoop on some of our favourite getaway locations!

If you don’t mind a bit of heat and humidity, why not head to Singapore and enjoy their beautiful botanic gardens – 74-hectares of lush lawns, rare flowers and sparkling lakes. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is one of the city's most stunning attractions and an absolute must for first-time visitors!

Why not take a trip to the beautiful island of Cyprus? Get the blood flowing with some energetic sightseeing of the underwater scenery around Cyprus on a diving cruise! You could also visit the stunning UNESCO-protected Omodos village, renowned for its superb grapes and tasty wines, and where we held our 2016 Oriflame Gold Conference!

There’s more to this small pocket of sun, sea and sand in western India than meets the eye! Slightly off the beaten track is the Tanshikar Spice Farm, a family-run spice farm that offers accommodation, guided tours and even cookery classes!

If you haven’t visited Sweden’s capital yet, you’re in for a treat no matter the season! Find out about modern Swedish innovation, design and culture by exploring some of our many museums, and be inspired by the refreshing closeness of nature to the city. At the Oriflame 2012 Global Gold Conference, we were lucky to be joined by Her Majesty Queen Silvia of Sweden – be sure to stop where she lives locally – the Royal Palace.

Cape Town
Experience some jaw-dropping scenery in the home of Table Mountain – Cape Town. There’s the architecture and grounds of the Groot Constantia estate to be awed by, and don’t forget to snap a photo with some of the inhabitants of the Boulders penguin colony!

Los Angeles
There’s so much to do in Los Angeles it’s hard to know where to begin! You could enjoy a wander around one of the city’s many art galleries, soak up the atmosphere on the Venice Boardwalk, or ponder the universe at LA’s landmark Griffith Observatory, situated high in the hills of Mount Hollywood.

Sydney offers many things to the bold explorer, but we are most in love with its scenery and wildlife. If you want to be blown away by beauty, don’t miss out on spectacular North Head. The easiest way to explore this magical place is along the Manly Scenic Walkway.

For visitors, tokyo is an exciting place full of new experiences – instead of the theatre, why not take in a sumo show at the Ryōgoku Kokugikan (Ryōgoku Sumo Hall). One of our Diamond Directors, Natalya Pasichnik, especially loved the cherry blossoms in spring: “It was the most wonderful season there, when the cherry trees blossom. I will remember this forever.”

Miami is more than just a beautiful beach (although, obviously definitely visit the beach). The city also boasts a vibrant art scene. Check out one of Miami's most impressive spaces – Pérez Art Museum – designed by Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron.

For the mystery-seekers out there, we recommend Hal Saflieni Hypogeum, a gloomy, otherworldly exploration of Malta’s 5000-year-old subterranean necropolis. For pleasure-seekers, Malta also offers up an exciting, city-centre vibe. Enjoy the atmosphere of the main city square as we did at the Oriflame 2010 Gold Conference – we made things extra special by booking out the square, dining and celebrating right in the heart of the city!
