Coated with white-sand beaches, luxurious rainforests, and staggered green mountains, Rio de Janeiro is a city with character, brimming with beachgoers during the day and soothing sounds of samba through the night.

3. Dubai, United Arab Emirates
With a love for skylines that shine, Dubai is a city of superlatives, with gorgeous cream-colored shorelines and larger-than-life attractions: traditional wooden Abras floating on Dubai Creek, natural sands of Jumeirah Beach parallel to the carefully sculpted Palm Islands, and the lively Gold and Spice Souks (marketplaces) flourishing within the Dubai Mall.

1. Bora Bora
Blue is not just a color–it’s a spectrum of shades destined for dreams and in Bora Bora those dreams become reality. Or at least that’s how I imagine it happens. Having never been there myself I find myself daydreaming about this locale fairly regularly. And if you’re like me and thinking about the South Pacific, as Rodgers and Hammerstein astutely noted, “You gotta have a dream, if you don’t have a dream, How you gonna have a dream come true?”

A phoenix standing tall and strong, Berlin is a city steeped in sobering history and a symbol of healing and progress. The center of a youthful art movement makes it a creative-type’s wonderland.
