Pantone recently announced its color of the year for 2024: Peach Fuzz, described as a color to enrich the mind, body and soul. Travel also does those same things, so Planet Cruise compiled a list of five worldwide destinations to visit based on the color of the year.


Hawa Mahal in Jaipur, India

Hawa Mahal palace in Jaipur was built from red and sandstone in 1799, and, in the morning, the sun’s rays amplify its spectacular colors.


Craigievar Castle in Craigievar, Scotland

This seven-story castle, completed in 1626, is among the best-preserved in Scotland. While currently under renovation, its peachy exterior reopens to the public this spring.


Tan Dinh Church in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

The Roman Catholic Tan Dinh Church (or Church of the Sacred Heart of Jesus) attracts visitors to its unusual construction. Visit in summer as the Christmas season is extremely busy here.


Valley of Fire in Overton, Nevada

A little closer to home, Valley of Fire State Park covers nearly 40,000 acres with bright Aztec sandstone combined with grey and tan limestone. Open year-round, the national park is accessible on all designated driving routes.


Las Salinas de Torrevieja in Valencia, Spain

This rose-tinted lake houses thousands of flamingos during breeding season. In the same area, high salt levels in the lake and the black mud surrounding it create a peach-inspired natural spa.

What are Deconstructed Hotels and Where Can You Find Them?

As travelers look for ways to slow down, be present and be a little more mindful during their trips, some hotels and resorts tout a new accommodation concept: the deconstructed hotel. Just like a deconstructed dish separates all of the dish’s individual ingredients so one can experience each separately but still enjoy the overall effect of the whole, a deconstructed hotel breaks down a property into its separate components, requiring a traveler to move between each in a more mindful, present manner.

It is a place that inspired dreamers and travelers, poets and painters with a landscape filled with stone walls, thatched cottages, deserted beaches and breathtaking views. Charming towns and villages, 1,500 miles of soaring cliffs, incredible landscapes and unique experiences await.
