Toronto December to March

Must do - Toronto, Canada

Toronto is well-loved for its vibrant summer season, from harbour front views to island festivals to friendly hipster patios to its massive annual Pride parade.

New York City

The city is constantly moving - New York, USA

New York City is home to 8.5 million people who are innovators, hustlers, and the best in their fields. The city is constantly moving, so things can change in a New-York-minute, which is why the best way to see the city is just to arrive. When you think of New York, you probably think of Manhattan, which is what I will focus on, but there are 5…

Singapore is so diverse

Popular destination - Singapore, Singapore

Singapore is a tiny island nation nestled into the Malaysian peninsula, which is why for those in the Western hemisphere, it’s not a well-known travel destination.
