We go different places to take in the awe-inspiring sights and sounds befitting dreams. The world is a big place and if we had to visit each and every corner of it, we’d be enriched with so much new culture and heritage we’d be drowning in it. And for true travellers, nothing is better than drowning in the culture of a new place. The architecture, arts, crafts and history of a place, if fascinating, makes the trip that much more precious and memorable. There are so many places in the world that are worthy of a visit for their opulent culture and heritage. Here are a few of the world’s most culturally rich cities, hand-picked just for you!

Rome – All roads lead here…

Be it the fountains, the structures, the buildings or the lovely history, Rome spouts wonder and charm every step of the way. You simply cannot walk in Rome without coming across something delightful or without feeling that nothing can ever go wrong as long as you’re in Rome. With its high life, great fashion and picture-perfect sights, it isn’t a wonder why Rome has become the preferred location for films and novels.

Sao Paulo – The core of vibrant art

Sao Paulo
Is it even possible that a city in Brazil can be slow-paced and dull?
