Explore the Moment with our Product Team

#explorethemoment with our Product and Operations team; here they describe their top 10 cities based on their favourite moments.

They range from visiting the vibrant markets of Cuzco, Peru, or admiring the view from a gondola in the stunning Andean mountains in Quito, Ecuador; to strolling along the narrow streets and bazaars of Kathmandu.


Lima

John Telfer - I enjoy sipping on a Pisco Sour whilst eating ceviche as the sun sets into the Pacific. Then wandering the markets, palaces and plazas of the old colonial centre – one of the most under-rated capitals in the Americas – gritty grandeur and few Gringos!

Rangoon

James Adkin - My best memories of Rangoon were people-watching at a local tea house, discovering the faded glory of the downtown area on foot, spending endless hours soaking up the atmosphere at the Shwedagon Pagoda, checking out the décor and photos from another era with a sundowner at the Strand Hotel and enjoying the street food in the Chinese Quarter.

Kathmandu

Caroline Phillips - I love the pulsing heart of Old Kathmandu; taking a stroll in the soft misty light of early morning through narrrow streets of ancient buildings with their overhanging carved wooden balconies, past bazaars setting up their wares for the day and among the pilgrims offering incense at its many temples. Then ending up with a hot chai from one of the street vendors in Durbar Square and chatting to some of the friendly local kids.

Cuzco

Carmel Hendry - I'd head to one of the huge local markets to soak up the atmosphere. San Pedro market is great - people in traditional Andean dress selling everything from fresh fruits to handmade silver jewellery and even llama foetuses. A great place to eat choclo (corn), drink a pisco sour and watch the world go by.

Hanoi

Chris Ellis - My favourite thing to do in Hanoi is to stroll down from the tranquil peace of Hoan Kiem Lake into the bustling narrow streets of the Old Quarter. Here, I like to sit outside a noodle bar and tuck into a tasty bowl of ‘Pho’ and watch the melee of people and mopeds pass me by.

Kampala

Jonathan May - I love walking through the market in Kampala, the sound of life echoes around as people hawk everything from peanuts to bootlegged DVDs to freshly carved wooden furniture! If you want to escape the masses, climb one of the city’s hills and spend a few peaceful moments looking out over the chaos below.

Quito

Carmel Hendry - I loved the drama of Quito, which sits in a deep bowl enclosed by stunning Andean mountain peaks. The fabulous views are best appreciated by taking the Teleferico (gondola) that runs up the east side of Pichincha Volcano. Looking down over the sprawling city, it feels like you’re sitting on top of the world!

Phnom Penh

Chris Ellis - My favourite moment in Phnom Penh was finding the Foreign Correspondents Club, a bar with an incredible history, in a great spot overlooking the Mekong River.  Journalists gathered here during the Khmer Rouge regime and you can look at fascinating newspaper clippings from the time, it really brings the past to life.

Negombo

Paul Rose - Negombo has grown from traditional fishing village to sleepy beachside city with a really laid back 'back to basics' feel. It's an ideal place to find your feet in Sri Lanka and just relax on the wide golden sandy beaches, or chill out with some ice cold drinks and a delicious meal of locally caught seafood.

Carcassonne

Peter Crane - There's something magical about Carcassonne: dramatically perched on a hilltop with its soaring battlements and fairy-tale turrets, it’s easy to imagine the fierce battles that colour its history. I was spellbound on a morning walk along the ramparts, with a thick mist lying over the valley floor.
