Give me sunshine! Ampersand’s top five Vitamin D top-up trips

VIETNAM Six Senses Can Dao Condao Exterior
If it gets to this time of year and your body is crying out for some Vitamin D, here are our top 5 tours for some sizzling-hot sunshine between December and March...


1. Boutique South India – 15 days from £2,350 per person

This tailor-made tour of South India provides a culturally rich and supremely relaxing experience whilst staying at the finest boutique hotels in the region. With its slower pace of life, South India has an entirely different feel to the frenetic and sometimes overwhelming North. From Chennai, you’ll go to Pondicherry to experience a bit of ‘gay Paris’ before exploring the towering temples of Tanjore. From the culture hit of Tamil Nadu, head to the gorgeous hilly tea estates of Kerala and fully unwind by dipping into the balmy Backwaters and atmospheric port city of Cochin. >> View more

2. Best of the Best Vietnam  – 14 days from £4,780 per person

Vietnam is a fantastic destination for food and culture lovers. Experience fairytale fishing ports, buzzing cities and plenty of blazing-hot beaches on this 2 week luxury tour. Vietnam is home to a handful of Ampersand’s favourite hotels which are all featured in this indulgent luxury tour – from Hanoi’s classy colonial Metropole to the newest (and, we think, best) Aman Resort in Asia, the Amanoi, set on the dramatic and undiscovered coastline of Vinh Hy Bay. End on Con Dao Island in your luxury Six Senses villa set directly on the beach. The best time for this trip is after the cooler northeast monsoons have finished and the sun comes out in force between February and April. >> View more

3. Best of the Best Burma – 17 days from £5,297 per person

It is no secret that Burma is a cultural treasure trove, but for those of you who love luxury too, we have designed the ultimate luxury tour of Burma using her finest luxury hotels and most exclusive experiences. This 17-day tour has it all: crumbling colonial Yangon with its glittering Shwedagon Pagoda; elephants, hill stations and mesmerising Inle Lake in the Shan State; and temples galore in Mandalay and Bagan – October to March is the season to go hot air ballooning for the eagle’s view of Bagan’s temple-studded plains. End with your feet in the pristine golden sands of Ngapali beach at Sandoway, Burma’s best luxury beach resort. >> View more

4. Three little tastes of Heaven in Sri Lanka – 11 days from £3,500 per person

It is said that Sri Lanka was the original Garden of Eden and it only takes one visit to understand why. We have chosen our three favourite spots in Sri Lanka where the combination of bliss and luxury are as close to heaven as one can achieve on Earth: from the historical 17th century Dutch Fort of Galle staying at the exquisite colonial hotel Amangalla; to the pristine palm-fringed beach at Amanwella; to the undulating emerald tea plantations at Ceylon Tea Trails. This southern region has the best weather during European winter months and Sri Lanka is particularly fun during Christmas and New Year’s Eve! >> View more

5. Luxury Indochina – 17 days from £5,650 per person

Enjoy the fine food, cultural charms and natural beauty of Indochina whilst staying at Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia’s top properties, including one of the world’s most extraordinary beach resorts – the Six Senses Hideaway Ninh Van Bay, Vietnam. Begin in laid-back Luang Prabang in Laos to discover ancient gilded temples, farmers markets and charming locals. Experience the French colonial allure of Hanoi before cruising Halong Bay and winding down on Vietnam’s beautiful southern sands. Save the splendours of Cambodia's Angkor Wat for your final few days. >> View more
