With Squid Game, Parasite and K-pop storming the world over the past few years, South Korea is on everyone’s lips – and everyone’s bucket list! Fashion and technology forward but also deeply traditional, this dynamic city is a fascinating mix of old and new. From modern skyscrapers and neon lights to ancient temples and historic palaces, Seoul is becoming a global capital at lightning speed.
Whether it’s art, culture, music, history or even shopping, this 24/7 city has it all! If that still wasn’t enough to inspire your next prize promotion, just look to best-of-the-best chef and restaurateur Massimo Bottura, who is opening the fourth edition of his contemporary concept restaurant Gucci Osteria – formerly named The World’s Best Restaurant – in the Korean capital.

Montenegro has the perfect mix of culture and luxury. From medieval cities, crystal clear lakes and picturesque mountains to five-star hotels, luxury marinas and super-yachts – Montenegro boasts something to satisfy every winner! Home to the most beautiful bay in the world – the Bay of Kotor – and home to seventh highest number of UNESCO sites in the world, it’s easy to see why it makes our list. Marriott and The Ritz have even jumped on the band wagon with a brand-new luxury hotel set to open next year.
