Five bags for five vacation destinations

Summer is finally here! Five little-known magical trending places to get away from it all. 

4 July 2016   | 

Rome

If you dream of beautiful stone, stunning monuments, delectable cuisine, dazzling sunshine and shaded back streets, look no further. Apparently, all roads do lead to Rome, so get yourself to the ultimate location for living the good life, Italian-style. Bags already packed? Don’t forget to visit Trevi Fountain. Legend has it that if you turn your back to the monument and toss a coin in with your right hand, you’ll soon be back to visit Italy’s capital city…

Luggage you’ll need:

A Longchamp 3D backpack to meander through the city’s cool alleys on a Vespa

 

Thailand

The name alone says getaway! Some envision heavenly beaches and breathtaking scenery while others are immediately seduced by the sounds of tunes that’ll have them dancing till the wee hours. Looking for a two-for-one deal? Full Moon Parties have had revelers dancing barefoot on Thailand’s most gorgeous beaches since 1985. Check them out this year July 21-August 18. Then recover in style at one of the latest luxury hotels going up in Thailand, like the Keeamala in Phuket, and get comfy in a wooden “bird’s nest” on stilts hidden away in the jungle.

Luggage you’ll need:
A Pliage Néo Fantaisie rolling suitcase in exotic neon camouflage to celebrate the lush colors and great parties.

 

Bali

First there was the French film Toute la Beauté du Monde in 2006 followed by Eat, Pray, Love four years later. That’s all it took for Bali, the stunning backdrop for both films, to turn into a must-see destination for tourists and devotees of wide open spaces. This is the land of the ultimate unwind with paddy fields stretching to infinity, the place for yoga and massages…Bali is the perfect spot to experience the Less Is More mentality and worship the art of simplicity.

Luggage you’ll need:
The sleek and oh-so-stylish Longchamp 2.0 rolling mini-suitcase with room for 26 liters of stuff – the perfect incentive for traveling light and picking quality over quantity.

 

St. Helena

This Atlantic island between Brazil and Angola known for being Napoleon’s place of exile remains isolated and mostly tourist-free, despite all the treasures it offers like colonial homes, sheer cliffs, tropical forests and crystal clear waters. The new airport expected to open last spring is scheduled to start receiving flights sometime this year. Until then, it’s a five-day boat ride to get there, but also your last chance to stroll the 122 km2 island feeling like you’re the only soul on earth.

Luggage you’ll need:
A deep blue Fairval suitcase to match the color scheme on the cruise there. It has wheels, so you can roll around the RMS St. Helena, the 3,150 ton ship linking Cape Town, South Africa and St. Helena.

 

London

Mere days after the Brexit vote, head to England’s capital – only two hours from Paris on the Eurostar. The perfect destination for a short trip, London is the place to shop till you drop with luxury stores, immense shopping malls and offbeat street markets. You’d be crazy to pass up this opportunity to make shopping a way of life!

Luggage you’ll need:
Hands down, the leather Pliage travel bag that ingeniously folds up to be stowed away in your suitcase on the way over ready to be filled with your brand new Oh So British souvenirs for the return trip!
