If New York is the Big Apple, then 24 hours would be just one tiny bite. This is a blink-and-you-miss-it kind of city. If you’re only in NYC for a day, you have your work cut out for you. This city has everything: monuments, museums, food, fashion and nightlife. Load up on coffee in Greenwich Village and grab a yellow cab uptown to Central Park for a stroll. Take in the hustle and bustle of Times Square, and in the evening catch a Broadway show.

Mexico City is known as the sun in the Mexican solar system. It’s a buzzing, high-octane place where organized chaos rules, and spending 24 hours here is unlikely to leave you rested or relaxed. The city neighborhoods are filled with old-school cantinas, museums and dramatic murals. If that all sounds like too much, you could just hit the beach. We’ll leave it up to you!

A day in London is like being plugged into the mains. Step off the Tube onto the busy streets and get stuck in. There’s no shortage of historical and famous landmarks to see here. Make your way over to the Queen’s house (that’s Buckingham Palace, in case you didn’t know). If the flag’s up it means she’s home, so give her a wave. Keep an eye on the time with a visit to Big Ben, before ending your day with a musical in the West End.

Tokyo is a hyperactive super-metropolis of neon, cutting-edge skyscrapers and futuristic technology. Navigating it can be a daunting prospect for visitors. The maze of streets offers up every manner of sights and sounds. Only in Tokyo is crossing the road considered a cultural highlight. It’s true, though! The Shibuya Crossing is a quintessential Tokyo experience. Once your mind is well and truly blown, head to an ancient shrine or classical garden for some peace and quiet.

Hong Kong is a sensory feast. Its iconic skyline and enchanting neighborhoods will thrill and batter your senses on a day trip. What better way to see a lot in a short span of time than by swaying through the streets on a historic double-decker tram? But there will also be a chance to chill. What makes this city so unique is the surrounding mountains and sprawling country parks, which are home to many geological and historical gems.
