Whether you believe in astrology or not, there’s something quite captivating to think about star alignment and how it impacts who we are. From our personalities to compatibility, zodiac signs are used to reason nearly every aspect of life, including travel. Here are the luxury destinations you should visit based on your sign.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
A true leader at heart, you love challenging situations and are no stranger to a little competition. You’re bold, passionate, energetic, and ambitious; therefore, adventurous travel is right up your ally. If it was up to you, you’d rather be off the grid than going to the same places everyone else is going. You’re also a great organizer and incredibly optimistic, so even unforeseeable circumstances don’t feel quite as bad when traveling with you. For a luxury vacation, you should visit Singapore. While it’s a bit out of the way, once there, you’ll be delightful with equal amounts of local adventure and luxurious hotspots. Spend your day tasting incredible food from the market, then head back to your lavish accommodations at the famous Marina Bay Sands or Raffles Singapore.

you’re visiting places. You prefer a vacation that’s meaningful where you can immerse yourself into the

and on an endless quest for knowledge. Any adventure, whether geographical, intellectual, or spiritual is welcome.

you’re also fast paced and enjoy a good adrenaline rush. For a luxury vacation, you should go on a South
African safari. It’s a longer haul to get there, but the experiences that await you are worth the trek. For a

You’re also the most humanitarian of all the signs and are dedicated to making the world a better place. For a luxury vacation, you should visit Jaipur, India – “The Pink City.” Jaipur boasts luxurious accommodations and restaurants along with incredible Rajasthani hospitality, yet it’s also brimming with adventurous activities and opportunities to give back.

while meandering through the quaint cobblestone streets of some of Europe’s most picturesque and historic cities. For a classic luxury river cruise experience, you can’t go wrong cruising down either the legendary Danube, with visits to iconic cities and Christmas markets, or the fairytale Rhine, with views of castles and the Swiss Alps.
