See Abercrombie & Kent’s picks for 2012’s most exciting destinations and start planning your next extraordinary journey. Taken from The New York Times“The 45 Places to Go in 2012,” these 10 destinations offer the A&K experience at its finest – including mysterious Myanmar, recently opened to Western visitors, all the way down to Antarctica, which you can discover in luxury and style on board MV ‘Le Boreal.’ Jordan

The Top Five

Myanmar charms even the most seasoned traveller with its remoteness and unspoiled culture. Fall under its spell at the sight of thousands of stupas dotting the untouched fields of Bagan and monks going about their daily lives at ancient monasteries along the Ayeyarwady River.
Long coming in second to Kenya as East Africa’s safari destination, Tanzania offers exclusive reserves, increasingly luxe accommodations and, of course, the wildlife-rich Ngorongoro Crater and towering Mount Kilimanjaro. Visit in January to March for the start of the Great Migration across the fabled Serengeti.
Join the small number of people to have ever set foot on earth’s most remote corner on a luxury adventure of a lifetime. On board the stylish-yet-sturdy MV ‘Le Boreal,’ cruise through fjords unreachable by larger boats and enjoy top-notch service.
Seldom-visited Uganda enchants with stunning greenery, deep lakes, soaring mountains and perhaps the greatest natural treasure of all – half of the world’s last remaining mountain gorilla population. Experience the ultimate safari when you track these elusive, endangered creatures on foot.
Romantic Jordan teems with historical and natural treasures, from the magnificent “rose-red city” of Petra to the lunar landscape of Wadi Rum. Experience the timeless beauty of this unforgettable destination, immersing yourself in its rich, complex culture.

Much is made of the rich and famous who come to Anguilla to hide in plain site. No doubt there is plenty of luxury to be found on this small Caribbean island, But for every celebrity there are the thousands of visitors every year who come for the warm hospitality of the people, the brilliance of the beaches and the quiet, idyllic return to a more elegant, simple yet rich existence.

Anguilla is more than a destination. Anguilla is an experience, a special feeling found nowhere else. Anguilla represents the ultimate in escape from the ordinary, the opportunity to leave behind the busy everyday to wrap oneself in the very essence of relaxation. Visitors come from all over the world to Anguilla to rejuvenate the mind, body and spirit. As they say in Anguilla “Feeling is believing.”


  • Anguilla is the northernmost of the Leeward Islands. It is situated 146 miles east of Puerto Rico and eleven miles north of St. Martin/St.Maarten.
  • The island is sixteen miles long, and three miles wide at it’s widest point. In total, the land mass measures 35 square miles.
  • There are more than 40 miles of coastline on which its many spectacular beaches are situated. Anguilla is a mostly flat island, with its highest point at 213 feet above sea level.
  • The island does not have any natural rivers, streams or lakes but several large salt ponds dot the landscape.
  • Situated in the centre of Anguilla is The Valley, the nation’s capital.
  • Numerous fishing villages, like the ones at Crocus Bay and Island Harbour embody centuries of Anguilla’s maritime history and nautical traditions.So ingrained is the love of the sea that boat racing is the national sport.
  • English holidays such as the Queen’s Birthday, Whit Monday and others are celebrated, but English speaking Anguilla maintains a unique balance of all the historic influences that make this island a truly individual nation.
  • Anguilla’s fortunate location in the Leeward Islands means that for much of the year there is a constant breeze cooling the air and affording very little rainfall or humidity. The subtropical climate and temperature tends to be constant year round average of 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Average annual rainfall is 35 inches with the “rainy season” running August through November.
  • Throughout the island, a visitor will encounter the simple, yet elegant architecture of the Anguillian people. Make sure to emphasize to your clients that they will want to take special notice of the shops painted lime green or pink or a school of aquamarine. Of special note are the churches, nearly one church for every two square miles of island.
  • Anguilla’s turquoise waters boast five marine parks: Dog Island, Prickly Pear/Seal Island, Sandy Island, Little Bay, and Shoal Bay/Island Harbor. Dive sites include wreck dives, shore dives, mini wall dives, night dives and heritage diving. Other activities include parasailing, paddle boating, windsurfing, water skiing and glass bottom boats.

SushiPerhaps we should try one of these restaurants!!.

There’s something inspiring about seeing a great city from the sea. Some of my fondest memories are of cruising out to the Statue of Liberty in New York and crossing San Francisco Bay .

Maybe that’s why our passengers are always raving about the Sydney Harbour dinner cruise.

Mix a beautiful skyline and two of Australia’s most famous icons – the Sydney Opera House and the Harbour Bridge – and you have one of those inclusions that sets Collette apart.

Look for it on our  Collette Vacations Australia and New Zealand tours:
