Margate. That formerly uncool seaside resort in north-west Kent, has had quite the revamp. It is part of Thanet, which also includes the seaside towns of Ramsgate and Broadstairs, and was recently mentioned in Frommers must-see destinations for 2011. Margate is packed with quirky cafes and vintage shops, and it's also home to the new Turner Contemporary gallery.
Clayoquot Wilderness Resort more than lives up to the hype. A remote tented retreat on the west coast of Vancouver Island, its surroundings are superb with a wonderful array of wildlife on its doorstep. A host of unforgettable adventure experiences are on offer including whale watching, kayaking and surfing, making it immensely popular with families and couples alike. #Tofino #Canada
