Mother Svea
Once the land of the Vikings, Sweden today combines a long and fascinating history with a propensity for the very modern. The grand Romanesque churches that dot the countryside contrast with the clean, simple lines and partiality for organization the country is known for. With its reverence for the shy, reserved, and considerate, the nation exudes a sensation of being comfortable. Peek into the quiet lives from afar, gather around traditional "fika" coffee with loved ones, or dine on meatballs, herring, and potatoes. Immerse yourself in nature among the forests and trails so respected by their citizens, and take in the latest design and cultural offerings in this modest yet aesthetically savvy country.

Some of Asia's longest rivers run through Bangladesh, forming the world's largest and most fertile delta. In addition to the Ganges, sacred to Hindus, hundreds of other waterways rank among the top tourist attractions in Bangladesh, offering access to lengthy beaches, islands, coral reefs, and the biggest mangrove forest in the world. In this densely populated country, giant urban centers house many different ethnic groups, creating a patchwork of cultures that makes this part of the world so intriguing to tourists. Consider beginning your tour of Bangladesh in Dhaka, a hectic city packed with old temples and swanky eateries serving a growing population of international expats.
