The Jumbo Kingdom will stun you. Housing a colossal floating restaurant built to look like an ancient Chinese imperial palace, it bobs gently on the waters of the Aberdeen Harbour. Its magnificence has drawn elites and royalties from all across the world, like Queen Elizabeth II, John Wayne, Tom Cruise and Gwyneth Paltrow among many others. 

HolidayIQ reviewer Ashok Arora shares, "I love Hong Kong, the most vibrant city, with great hotels and classy restaurants and pubs." HolidayIQ reviewer Saranya says, "We covered Tian Tan Buddha, cable car ride, Duckling tour, lights and sound show, Peak Tram tour, Victoria Point, Ocean park and Disney Land."

Yes! We are very serious. Have you ever wondered what it is like to sleep with fishes? Well, now you can just go ahead and stay in underwater bedrooms in Maldives and enjoy an extraordinary vacation. 

HolidayIQ reviewer Amit shares, "We wanted to just relax and enjoy the underwater life. The whole experience was extremely good. Right from the speedboat transfer (from the airport at Male to island) to the smooth check-in to the rooms facing the blue waters."

Hae you heard of the Balfour Garden? This spectacular garden offers a view of a waterfall, which comes to dive a hundred meters down into a lush gorge. On top of that gorge stands the “Tabor,” a beautiful white house that belongs to the diocese of Port-Louis. Sounds magical, doesn't it?

HolidayIQ reviewer Snigdha shares, "The dense vegetation includes dozens of palm varieties, Talipot trees, giant tortoises as old as eighty years, and also ponds of giant water lilies."

Pekutatan is one of the last surviving retreats that is saving the flavour of real Bali. You won't find street vendors or bars here. Secluded, picturesque coast is home to the rocks on the beach carved out by lava thousands of years ago. 

HolidayIQ reviewer Saurabh shares, "Along with pristine sand beaches, it serves mesmerising views of high mountains, lakes and paddy rice fields."
